More on the Lasher Sport Product Line:
2010 marks the 5th Anniversary for Lasher Sport. To celebrate this anniversary, Lasher Sport introduces the revolutionary BT-X, the first-of-it's-kind, patent pending chair that can be totally transformed from an everyday chair, to a Multi-Terrain chair, to a beach chair... all within mere minutes.
For 2009, Lasher Sport introduces the all new, magnesium frame Handcycle Elite. We designed the Handcycle Elite for racers and those wanting the most from their handcycle. The Handcycle Elite comes with a custom Spinergy wheelset, carbon fiber seating, top-of-the-line Shimano componentry, Avid Juicy Ultimate carbon and magnesium disc brakes, titanium hardware, and so much more. This bike was designed to be fast, which is why we say "Magnesium... it's what fast is made of."
In 2008 Lasher Sport brought the 'Sport' to Lasher Sport with two all new magnesium frame sports chairs-- the Baller Elite and the Tennis Elite. Designed for the player who knows exactly what they are looking for in a sports chair and demands the best. Both chairs consist of magnesium frame construction, aluminum accessories, and titanium hardware. Spinergy SLX wheels with Schwalbe Speedrun tires are standard on the chairs. These new sports chairs are light and nimble, but tough and extremely rigid. With over 6500 powder coat colors to choose from, you can really make your sports chair a one-of-a-kind head turner.
The BT-Mg, BT-Mg-A, and BT-Mg-AS are the first and only magnesium frame wheelchairs on the market! Lasher Sport was looking to create the lightest chair they could design which logically led to using Magnesium as the metal of choice for the frame. Magnesium is by far the lightest structural metal and is 35% lighter than aluminum and 62% lighter than titanium by volume. Magnesium has similar strength properties as 6061-T6 aluminum which means it has a superior strength to weight ratio of any metal. But the frame is only one area of focus. We also lightened the back and seat upholstery by using carbon fiber laminates, we use titanium fasteners in place of stainless steel, the new Spinergy LX wheels for light weight and strength, and Frog Legs Uni-tine forks with titanium bearing casters for lightness and great looks. What does all this mean? For starters, it means we have created an Impossibly Light wheelchair with a transport weight (weight excluding rear wheels and cushion) of just 8.4 pounds-- that's less than a gallon of milk which weighs 8.62 pounds! The total chair weight is only 15.5 pounds (excluding cushion). This is one seriously light weight chair. So, if weight is of primary concern to you then the BT-Mg, BT-Mg-A, or BT-Mg-AS is your chair.
Lasher Sport introduced the BT-Trail and BT-ATB for Winter 2005-06. Whether you're into camping, fishing, hiking, skiing, or just getting out doors, these chairs were designed to be capable beyond the side walk.
Lasher Sport introduced the BT-G Tribal during the summer of 2005 at the Abilities Expo in Anaheim, CA. This new frame design uses 1.5" 6061-T6 Aluminum tubing with CNC machined aluminum tribal cutout designs for the caster housing attachment and axle to frame attachment. Strong, stylish, and very light, this chair is on the cutting edge of wheelchair design.
Lasher Sport introduced two chairs during the Spring of 2005; The ultra-light and ultra-tough BT everyday/sports chair and the high-style and ultra-cool BT Ballistic everyday/sports chair. Taking a page from the mountain bike industry, we use 1.5" oversized aircraft aluminum tubes in the frame construction for strength and durability... we think it looks pretty cool too. Our chairs feature fixed rear axles for increased strength which also translates to added weight savings.
Your wheelchair shouldn't be a compromise between form and function, so we have included standard items on our wheelchairs that others would consider just an option: Spinergy rear wheels come standard-- these wheels are the strongest and lightest wheels available. Frogs Legs forks-- with polymer shock absorption, for the ultimate in smooth rides... nothing comes close! Tension seating-- for the perfect seating adjustment, plus you can tweak your seating over time as needed.
No cheap plastic parts on these chairs! All brackets and fittings are precision machined out of aircraft and aerospace aluminum for extra durability. From the frame, to the hand rims, to the caster forks, all our chairs can be custom finished in a variety of ways-- Powder Coating is the standard finish. Similar to paint, but much more durable, there are almost infinite color possibilities to choose from. Anodized in most any color imaginable or one of 11 wildly imaginative graphic schemes. First the chair is highly polished, then anodized through a chemical process that is actually part of the aluminum. Anodizing creates a beautiful finish! Mirror-like shine is for the purist who thinks metal should be shiny. The frame takes on a mirrored effect through meticulous polishing. This finish is high class at it's best!
We also offer a lifetime warranty against structural defects in the frame. Ultra light, extra tough, these chairs were design for the way you live and play.
