Lightweight. Durable. Anti-bacterial seat. Ergonomic contouring.
It’s comfortable, and it’s highly configurable, which means that you can tweak and adjust it until it’s a perfect fit for you.
The frame is crafted from an aircraft grade aluminum, allowing it to be only 29 lbs light.

What reviewers didn't like

Expensive.
Expensive. Quick release wheel can be complicated to operate.
We’d love to see the addition of handbrakes that the caregiver could use on those occasions, which would make the chair even better at handling sloping terrains.
