Lightweight and strong – the perfect entry-level racing wheelchair

The Flying Start is the perfect entry-level racing wheelchair for track and road racing - whatever your distance. It is ideal for individuals, clubs, schools and universities, sports federations.

Lightweight but strong, the Flying Start meets all criteria for wheelchair racing and is built to endure some of toughest training conditions around the world. It can be adjusted to suit either seated and positions thanks to its clever seat design.

With a 20” front wheel and 700c performance sport rear wheels it gives great propulsion when racing while rubber-coated push rims allow easy grip. It also includes a removable anti-tip bar at the rear for added safety.

Suitable for adults and children, it is available in four seat widths which are colour coded by size making it easier to select your favourite chair at the start of each session.
