Personal Opinion:
This wheelchair is a fab choice for those of us who like power! My wheelchair has never met a hill that it could not get up. It also has great manoeuvrability and the custom fit frame ensures my long legs are in a comfortable position.

My one concern about this chair is that when going downhill it can sometimes slide, meaning I lose control of direction. I was advised to change the tires to the pneumatic style to try and stop this, as my current tires are only puncture-proof. But I am undecided if the added expense will be worth it.

My current battery is 2 and one half years old and is beginning to show signs it needs a replacement; but on a normal charge, it will easily cover 15 miles.
