Titanium Shepherds Crutches
Titanium LiteStix custom Shepherds crutches are shock-absorbing, light-weight, durable, silent and strong. They come with slip resistant crutch tips and a 10-Year warranty.
These graceful single pole crutches are designed after the now discontinued Lumex Shepherds crutches.
LiteStix Titanium Shepherds Crutches are made with 100% titanium. The entire crutch is formed using our advanced uni-body construction. The handle post is beautifully welded (TiSport welders have a minimum of 10 years’ experience) directly to the crutch shaft, adding considerable strength and durability and eliminating all rivets, nuts and bolts for a snag-proof, sleek look. When tested by an independent lab, the handle post held a staggering 1870 lbs. Beautifully milled solid brass end-plugs are press-fitted and epoxied into the end holes of the crutch tubes making them water tight and adding quality and richness.
Titanium has the ability to flex under dynamic loading. It absorbs shock and dampens vibration to protect our upper body for the long haul. Plus you get the shock absorbing qualities of our gel crutch tips.
These Shepherds Crutches come with replaceable black padded urethane foam underarm sleeves.

While they are not slip proof, they will give you an extreme advantage when walking on smooth wet surfaces. They absorb over 80% of the negative crutch shock and they will last 3 to 5 times longer than ordinary rubber crutch tips.
Two Finish Options
Natural Luster bead blasted titanium crutches will look great indefinitely because there is no anodizing or paint to scratch off and it will not rust or corrode from fresh or saltwater. Titanium’s harder surface will not mar as easily as aluminum or paint. Bead blasting enhances titanium’s handsome warm tones. Maintain with soap and water then wipe dry with a cloth and apply a coat of wax. Black Powder Coat is a heat baked black enamel finish that while not as durable as Natural Luster, it is easily maintained with a permanent black marker.
