Elite Series Key Features

Unparalleled in the basketball world, the RGK Elite's lightweight frame guarantees to deliver the performance your training has paved the way for. The near-endless options available for backrest and seating positioning allow for a setup that will work just for you, ensuring that you have the closest connection and maximum performance to allow you to focus entirely on the court rather than propulsion.

The utmost best performance of your wheelchair is ensured by only using elements produced by market leaders, alongside a staggering 19 quality checks throughout the build, from the initial measurements to the final delivery.

  • Optimized biomechanics for maximum power and efficiency
  • Seating position to suit your game
  • Perfect toe-in/out for minimum drag
  • Bones Reds high-precision caster bearings as standard to maximize energy
  • Low-ride caster forks for optimum performance
  • Tri-Frame aluminum chassis design
  • Elite X Key Features
    • Carbon fibre axle
    • Carbon fibre sideguards with made-to-measure CNC sidearms (upgrade option)
    • Ceramic bearings in rear wheels, casters, and frame (upgrade option)
    • Titanium fasteners
    • Titanium buckles
    • Minute design changes for maximum weight saving gains


The Tri-Frame is a new design that better distributes the energy expended during play across more sections of the chair. This provides peace of mind that your chair can withstand anything that's thrown at it. Instead of just the axle, the force is now split across the downtube, the strongest part of the frame, as well.

  • Aerospace-grade 7020 aluminum frame with A10 heat treatment as standard
  • Triangular frame chassis design (Tri-Frame) that takes the main stress off of the axle with the strongest shape possible
  • Reinforced "impact areas" to prevent game and travel damage, such as backrest and anti-tip
  • Heavy duty frame design available

Frame Options

  • Fixed or adjustable footrest position
  • Single or double anti-tip
  • Fixed or removable anti-tip
  • Range of front wing designs

Carbon Fibre Sideguards

  • Carbon fibre sideguards are exclusive to the Elite X
  • Up to 3.5 ounces total weight savings switching from aluminum to carbon fibre sideguards.
  • Specialized CNC sidearms, made to measure each and every time, allowing for any shape to be created. These provide a beautiful edge that is nearly impossible to get when working with carbon fibre.

Carbon Fibre Axle

  • Exclusive to the Elite X, the carbon fibre axle offers a significant weight savings benefit compared to aluminum.
  • Carbon fibre enhances stiffness and rigidity of the chair (it's 8 times stronger than aluminum!).
  • The carbon fibre axle is clamped to the frame, not welded in position. This allows for fine tuning of the chair's toe in/out setting so you can get your chair rolling exactly how you want it to.
