Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The chair’s wheels are flat-free, which means they are made to resist punctures, leaks, and all the woes of a deflating tire. Therefore, this transport chair is designed to be especially durable and survive even the sharpest materials scraping against the tire.
Excellent chair. Well built, easy to maneuver, and light weight. Would definitely recommend it.
