    The reason for using strips as opposed to a solid piece is to accommodate ergo-style frames.

      Yes, they work well, the final version is strips, but all in the same piece, i have my seat in two pieces because i`ve got an ergo seat.

            What's the point of an Ergo seat?

                Thanks Toto,

                Have you found your Ergo seat to be significantly better then a normal wedge position?

                Anyone else have experience using an Ergo seat and what are your opinions?

                  I'd like to see a clinical evaluation of the idea, personally. I've yet to find one. The only info out there I've found are marketing materials from those companies selling it and word of mouth. If there were a footnote somewhere in RGK's marketing slick to a clinical eval of the concept, that would be one thing, but there isn't. It may feel good for some people, no doubt it does, but since chairs are prescribed for clinical reasons I'm cautiously optimistic. Hopefully someone serious, qualified and unbiased in the industry will tackle testing it out one day. Maybe it's been done since I last looked into it??? I don't know...

                    In my chair the difference is not much because i don`t have much dump, only 6cm (2.36") but my seating posture is better.
                    Where it really improve the posture is for high sci with big dumps.

                      velcro

                      I recently transferred an ADI carbon fiber seat base and folding side guards from my old chair to my new ZRA2.

                      Rather than use the ADI brackets I tried velcro instead.

                      It works great.
                      The ADI brackets weigh 12 ounces (3/4 pound or 340 grams), the velcro doesn't.

                      Additional features: To adjust the brakes or the CG just pull off the seat pan for instant access, no more flipping the chair over.
                      No more re-drilling holes in the side guards with changes to the back angle or dump, simply re-position the seat base.

                      On my new chair I used 1" x 16" strips of velcro.
                      On my old chair I put on a plywood base and saved velcro by using four 1" x 2" pieces. Even with just the small pieces the base stays in place securely.

                      Good tip Toto, thanks.

                        I'd like to see more info. as well. Also, how would one determine how much flat space they need/like? totoL1, how much flat space do you have? Also, what is your total depth?

                            For my latest chair, I went with ergo seating. as with any new chair, it took my a couple weeks to get used to it. I know I'm not 'slouching' like I was without it, and it helps hide a bit of the quad 'budda' belly.

                            Because of the design, a solid seat pan wasn't available to me (I suppose it the $$ were, it would be). I ended up buying a couple peices of CF from DragonPlate and used 3M DualLock (Velcro on steroids!) to secure it to my chair. I did notice the height increase from the normal sling seat, but it isn't really a factor.

                            Transfers are a hell of a lot easier with the solid seat.

                              Toto, their uphostery does look great. Any idea if it is available in the US?

                              Anyone know of a similar back upholstry that is available in the US? Any favorites from people? I have the regular TiLite on my new TR2 and cannot say that I love it.

                                Oracing is avaible in all the world, just contact them and they will ship it, here you`ve got a ZR with a complet Oracing backrest, you can choice where you want the crossbar, or just give the measurements of your backrest if you only want the uphostery, you can get your name embroided if you want too, different colours of threads, etc.
                                For you can make an idea, have a look at the uphostery,calfstraps and frame protectors of this chair that is going to Germany.
