went for this chair as it was adjustable, as I had many
problems with the RGK chairs as they were just too
customised, i.e. when you grow your wheelchair needs
replacing – this can be a very costly experience.
adjust the back rest height, seat height, seat angle, seat
depth, camber bar position and even the castor fork angle.
like Quickie have done a good bit of research into other
chairs and taken all the best bits to make this wheelchair,
I have been using manual chairs since 1995 and this one is
the best I have had so far, and it seriously is the
lightest, I can’t find a lighter chair – I need it to be
light as I have Muscular Dystrophy, if I can lift this chair
it must be light.
only two things that let this chair down, one is the front
can “flex” over uneven ground so you have to be on your
guard, but this can also be considered as a plus as it makes
the ride much smoother when compared to an RGK “bone
shaker”. The other will only effect you if you have longer
legs, the footplate runner bars are adjustable, but there is
not much length on the runners, mine is held up by only 15mm
of runner, but I do have 34” legs.
I have had
it for about 8 months now and have used it 24 hours a day
since I got it, nothing had gone wrong with it, only thing
that I have had to adjust is the brakes and inflate the
tires a few times. The chair is very strong, I use a trike
attachment on it during the summer months as the ride is
is a very good choice if you need it to be light, but many
people will be scared of by the high price tag that comes
with the chair, mine did cost over £2700 with the optional
folding backrest, spinergy wheels and flashing castors added
– but it is worth the money – this chair is just so light it
has to be tested to be believed.
