Personal Opinion:
The chair is very light, compared to my Quickie Argon 2. The Marathon Plus tyres make the ride very comfortable with no vibration, this helps to reduce pain and dislocations. The Tiga is very supportive as it is made to measure, in addition to choosing to have a higher back due to my disability getting worse, it’s perfect.

My old chair use to confine me to being indoors because of the vibrations and ill-fitting of the chair, my doctor even had to increase my pain medication because I could not sit in my chair without been in 9/10 pain nearly every day. My old chair was also ducted taped for 11 months because the wheelchair services could not order the right parts for it and constantly made excuses about why it couldn’t be fixed. This caused huge burns on my upper thighs and in the end, I needed treatment. It is also very lightweight and weighs around 8kg with the wheels on. Making it perfect for manoeuvring and easy to take apart for travel.
