Personal Opinion:
I have had to adjust this chair on many occasions, including the seating and dump to make it more comfortable, but all in all its a pretty average chair. Although I don’t think the chair is the issue, rather insurance and the US government not providing access to parts we really need. Many things like the push rims, push handles and side guards weren’t covered and had to be paid out of pocket.

It’s a nice ride indoors, as it can comfortably roll over hard flooring and carpet; but it’s almost worthless outdoors unless it’s being used on a paved, level area. I cannot use it in the grass at all.

The aluminium frame feels a bit weak in comparison to other chairs, but so far I have had no issues with integrity other than the wheel locks and needs repairing occasionally. It’s compatible with a lot of different seating options, which is nice for those with more complex seating needs. Although I don’t feel safe being transported in it, as any type of tie-down attachment aren’t included on this chair.

Overall it’s a pretty average chair that I would only recommend if you can fully adapt it to your needs. I had to pay out of pocket for a lot of add ons to make the chair usable, as I live with multiple chronic health issues. Don’t get me wrong the chair works, but I feel like it’s very overpriced for what you get.
