Personal Opinion:

Stylish wheelchair, which has very nice colour options. I feel the frame isn’t the best for those of you who would want to add a Jay Backrest on, as it would alter the look of the frame; but that is my personal choice. Push handles can be attached if wanted/needed. I really dislike the carbon fibre side guards, foot plate and camber bar as it limits the chairs use. For example, you can’t attach hand bike or smart drive without damaging the parts. Plus it hurts if you get a piece of carbon fibre in your finger (over packing the car caused this, so I learnt from my mistakes!) I am also not keen on the sling style seating with the metal bits that go into the frame, as it’s a hassle to fix/replace.

Great chair to get out and about in, as it can handle different surfaces. So overall I think it is a good chair, but it was sadly measured to big for me. Lesson learnt about who you pick to take your measurements! So I am looking forward to getting my new chair soon.
