TiLite Aero X
Extending the definition of The Ultimate Ride™.
One-Piece Side Frames
TiLite builds the Aero X with one-piece side frames. One-piece side frames increase performance by reducing flex and increasing durability.
The Aero X features TiLite’s Tru-Fit Component System - comprised of the Rigid Folding Mechanism, Adjustable Bullet Front Caster Housing and Curved Axle Plate. Instead of bolting through frame-weakening holes, Tru-Fit System components clamp directly onto the side frames. The Tru-Fit System eliminates one of the main stress points on today’s wheelchairs by reducing the number of holes in the frame by 50%. In addition, the Tru-Fit System allows for infinite adjustability of its components since there is no need to line up components with pre-drilled holes. This design innovation also greatly improves the durability of the Aero X frame.
NEW “Easy-Fold” Rigid Folding Mechanism (RFM)
TiLite’s exclusive Rigid Folding Mechanism cross tube design “RFM”, just got even better! The new “Easy-Fold” enhancement now makes the RFM much easier to fold without sacrificing ride or comfort!
The Easy-Fold RFM’s design allows TiLite to use one-piece side frames in its newest line of folding chairs. This innovation increases performance and enhances durability because the side frames are welded together - not bolted. In addition, the Easy-Fold RFM cross tubes secure to the bottom frame tube by clamping over it. This keeps the bottom pivot point in line with the frame, allowing the chair to fold as narrowly as possible.
Snap-In Seat Saddles
TiLite’s RFM cross tubes also feature snap-in seat saddles that lock the cross tubes into place, helping the Aero X achieve rigid chair performance.
Adjustable Bullet Caster Housing
TiLite’s exclusive Bullet Caster Housing was created by designing an integral frame component with two goals in mind; low weight and elegant looks. Plus, the adjustable version of the Bullet Caster Housing found on the Aero X provides 15 degrees of forward and rearward adjustment. This allows you to square the casters even with the most aggressive seat slopes. Like many of TiLite’s innovations, the Bullet Caster design reduces the weight of the chair. Sometimes simple really is better.
Curved Axle Plate
TiLite’s Curved Axle Plate allows for the greatest range in center of gravity adjustment and rear seat height adjustment.
Fixed or Swing Away Front End
The Aero X is available with either a fixed or a swing away front end. The hangers are removable when swung in or out 15 degrees from the locked position. The swing in or out feature of the removable front hangers on the Aero X facilitates transfers in tight spots, like a restroom or a car.
Machined Camber Plugs
The TiLite Aero X utilizes machined plugs to create rear wheel camber. Other manufacturers use washers to create rear wheel camber. The use of machined camber plugs precisely aligns the Aero X’s rear wheels, allowing the chair to consistently track straight.
