Endless Style. Expected Quality. Essential Value.

Catalyst 5VX has been redesigned with a modern, minimalist approach from the logo to the frame. Enhanced designs let you optimise your ride.

The Catalyst Difference

Catalyst 5Vx by Ki Mobility takes advantage of all of the “Catalyst Difference” design features to allow you to fit, adjust and ride with confidence.  A defining characteristic of each chair is its axle plate which we will highlight below.

Better Adjustment

Center of gravity adjustment and ride performance go hand in hand. The redesigned axle plate and rear frame give you 2” (5.08 cm) of the centre of gravity adjustment in 1/2” (1.27 cm) increments and 5” (12.7 cm) of rear seat height adjustment over 7 positions. Find your fit, ease your propulsion and optimise the ride you’ve come to expect with Catalyst.

Adjustable Camber

The NEW Adjustable Camber comes at no charge, giving you up to 4° of camber in 1” increments. A simple adjustment and convenient option provide the parts upfront, so you have everything you need to adjust or fine-tune the camber later.


Personalising your Catalyst 5VX begins with you. Pick your greatest shade, then highlight your look with our new anodising package, options and accessories. With thousands of colour combinations to choose from, be bold. Be you.

136 kg Standard Weight Capacity – NEW!

Catalyst 5Vx is one of the lightest and strongest folding chairs with a 136 kg standard weight capacity! A heavy-duty option is also available.

Swing-In Anti-Tip

Without sacrificing the compact frame design, the easy-to-activate Swing-In Anti-Tips swing under the frame, so they are there when you need them and gone when you don’t. Available in pairs, Left or Right mounting options.

Fender Side Guards

Choose between carbon fibre and foam padded aluminium side guards with a fender to protect your clothing from the road while adding a sleek look to your chair.

Transit Wheels

Transit Wheels are integrated into the rear frame for a minimalistic look. Transit Wheels allow you to remove the rear wheels for easier access through narrow spaces. The transit wheels are adjustable across the rear wheel and rear seat height combinations.

Front Frame Styles

Catalyst 5Vx offers the option of a swing-away front end featuring our patented footrests or 70° or 80° fixed frames.  The swing-away hangers come in 4 bends (60°, 70°, 80° & 90°), are light and easy to use, and are so strong we offer a lifetime warranty.

Maxx Performance Spoke

Maxx Performance is our new spoke wheel that offers performance and style without a high price tag. It features eighteen radial spokes and a high flange hub, resulting in increased rigidity for a more responsive, better-performing wheel. The heightened level of responsiveness combined with a lightweight design gives the rider the most from every push. It was constructed with a 6061 series aluminium rim and straight steel spokes with a durable black satin finish for a look and feel of anything but standard.
