Flyweight at only 4.8kgs
The byACRE Carbon Ultralight walker is not only a lightweight rollator, it is also the lightest carbon fibre walking frame in the world. Weighing only 4.8kg, this walker is a marvel of engineering, combining strength and durability with unmatched lightness. Its carbon fibre frame is incredibly strong and sturdy, yet weighs a fraction of what traditional rollators weigh. This makes the byACRE Carbon Ultralight Rollator perfect for those who want to maintain their independence without being weighed down.
Designed with physios
The byACRE Carbon Ultralight walker is designed with your comfort and convenience in mind. Its ergonomic features means it fits beautifully into your hand thanks to the contoured grip. Another unique feature is the inverted handles, which allow you to steer much more easily and walk more naturally with an more upright posture. This innovative design also reduces strain on your wrists and hands, making it easier for you to grip and manoeuvre the rollator.
Innovative Frame & smoother ride
The boomerang shape of the Carbon Ultralight doesn't only look sharp by echoing aerodynamic design and hiding the brake cables, but it also reduces vibration - byACRE's designers removed any direct vertical connection from the ground to the handles to soften the ride - pretty clever!
Built To Last
The byACRE Carbon Ultralight Rollator is not only lightweight, but also incredibly strong and durable. It is built with a combination of high-quality materials, including a carbon fibre frame and aircraft grade aluminium crossbars, which provide exceptional strength and stability. The carbon fibre frame is super sturdy, yet weighs significantly less than frames made of traditional materials like steel or aluminium.
It's the little things...
The byACRE Carbon Ultralight walker folds with one smooth motion, and is easy to grip and lift to pop in the car or to take on the bus. And once you're on the go, you can still perch - the built-in seat is perfect for a breather. byACRE's designers have also turned their mind to a number of smart accessories including bags and a backrest, which are optional additions (see below).
A: The key differences between the Ultralight and the Overland are the wheels, weight and length. The Ultralight is 4.8kg and the Overland is 6.7kg. The Ultralight has PU/rubber mix wheels whilst the Overland has pneumatic air-filled tyres. The Ultralight is 66cm long and the Overland is 73cm. Both the Ultralight and Overland handles have a height range of 82 - 95cm. So, the Overland is a slightly larger piece of kit designed for more mixed terrain. The Ultralight is smaller, designed for urban and indoor environments. Both are very portable and both look great.
A: The inverted handles encourage you to stand more upright and closer to the frame and this encourages good posture. Joint pain can be an issue with traditional shaped handles but the ergonmically shaped byACRE handles mean you steer the walker with the palm of your hand rather than using your finger, wrist and hand joints.
A: The byACRE Carbon Ultralight is certified to meet ISO 11199-2:2005
A: The Ultralight is available in Strawberry Red, Oyster White, Carbon Black, British Racing Green and Royal Blue.
A: There are three sizes - Compact, Regular and Wide Track. Specifications are above (see specifications drop down) but essentially the Compact is for people or adolescents who need a seat that is closer to the ground:
- The main difference between the regular and the Compact is the seat height (56cm on the Compact and 61cm on the Regular).
- The main difference between the regular and Wide Track is the seat width (42cm on the Regular and 47cm on the Wide Track. The seat height is the same on both of these at 61cm).
- Some people prefer a wider seat for comfort.
A: The frame is made from carbon fibre. The other parts are made from plastic and aluminium. The wheels are made from a PU/rubber mix and are slightly soft to touch.
A: The byACRE Carbon Ultralight is designed by byACRE APS in Denmark. In 2019 the byACRE Ultralight received a Red Dot Award, which is one of the world's most prestigious design awards that has been won by other well-known design oriented companies such as Apple, Bose, BMW and Porsche. byACRE oversees the manufacturing of its products in their Xiamen factory using the very best materials and construction methods. The factory specialises in the production of high quality healthcare equipment.
A: Yes. The Ultralight is so compact it will fit into even the smallest boot.
A: The walking frame and a locking tag, which holds the frame closed when it's folded. Any accessories purchased in addition to the walking frame will be added to the box.
