RGK, Part of Sunrise Medical Group, Launch the Veypr Sub4, the World’s First Truly Made to Measure C

Today RGK, part of the Sunrise Medical group, is very proud to announce the start of a new era with the launch of brand new Veypr Sub4, which made a 10-year dream a reality. With the significant innovation of RGK’s pioneering manufacture process inspired by F1 technology - the result is nothing less than the world’s first truly made to measure carbon fibre wheelchair!

All RGK wheelchairs in the Sub4 range have a guaranteed transport weight of less than 4kg in common and the Veypr Sub4 is no exception. With a frame weight of ~2.4kg and a transport weight of ~3.3kg the Veypr Sub4* is even ~10% lighter than an Octane Sub4, harnesses all the benefits and features of the Sub4 range with the added benefits of complete carbon fibre frame for an unrivalled performance and unprecedented rider experience.

* Excluding wheels, cushion and non-certified options

The Veypr Sub4 comes with a 100% carbon fibre frame. One of the key benefits of carbon fibre is its strength in comparison to weight, so while this wheelchair is ultra-lightweight it is also extremely strong to provide a smooth yet rigid ride. The frame consists of 4x layers of handcrafted carbon fibre: three structural layers of carbon fibre, each offset by 45 degrees provides the optimum strength in all directions, the final layer is then hand laid with precision to achieve a beautiful herringbone weave pattern finish.

Veypr Sub4 is the latest affirmation, allowing all individual specifications unlike any other, taking optimising posture, comfort, and performance as well as personalisation to a whole new level.
