Slender Fender - Wheelchair Fenders

  • The Slender Fender wheelchair fenders are a patented assistive wheelchair device designed to deflect dirt, mud and water splatter from the wheels landing on the rider. It also keeps the seat, sleeves and clothing clean; and protects fingers and hands from rubbing against the wheels or being caught in the spokes.

    It’s sleek and low-profile design fully covers the propulsion wheel tread surface, yet does not interfere with the push rim. The universal mounting hardware is easy to install and fits most major wheelchair brands.

    The device comes with 2 wheel fenders which can be easily mounted using the universal mounting kit or to existing hardware. We recommend the universal mounting kit so the fenders can be attached to the wheelchair frame. The armrest is an optional feature for those riders who require it.
