    New Top End Crossfire T7A

    I see Top End has a picture of the coming T7A. In SportAid's email brochure they state...

    In today's market, there is not a better deployment of material technology, engineering ingenuity and performance-minded design than the new Invacare® Top End® Crossfire™ T7A. Why? Four words. Super Light. Super Strong.

    4 lbs Lighter than Crossfire™ T6A.
    Coming soon...

    saving 4 pounds is pretty significant.

    so where's the T7?

        T7 should be coming out at the same time as the T7A!

          as much as I dislike the Invacare brand name these chairs intrigue me. Curious if they build a v-front end? Sooner or later I'm gonna need a chair with some push handles for stair-bumping while travelling, and they sure as hell aren't going on my Lasher.

            thats just a glorified Kuschall AirLite Pro and their junk. Invacare now owns Kuschall. that whole "seat module" design with pressed in riv nuts into the frame does not hold up, real flexy chair......look closely at how the seat frame attaches to the frame, 4 corner brackets bolted to the frame for adjustability with riv nuts.

              I asked them directly, about 6-8 months ago, and they said they had no plans for a T7, but they would have a new box and cantilever later this year/early next.

                  Going after the Q7...

                  From the T7A Glossy Sell Sheet currently posted on the T7A product page on Invacare's web site...



                  What was done differently on the T7A to reduce weight...




                  Invacare/Top End's weight specs versus the competition....

                    I hope they didn´t pass the same tests that tilite`s zr2 backrest folding sistem did.

                    Brands are going in the wrong way, they are only thinking in do chairs lighter than other brands.

                    Anyway i can`t understand how this could be super strong.

                      looks like they eliminated the rivnuts pressed into the frame to attach the seat frame module from the Kuschall design.
                      this is my Kuschall that was purchased in 08. hasn't been sat in since Oct 10.




                      ive popped the forward frame rivnuts from the frame on 2 different occasions. its what made the separate seat to frame design impractical.
                      the NEW 7A design looks much stronger than the Kuschall which from a distance looks identical the to 7A. maybe my constant bitching and complaining to Kuschall led to a change, HaHa. cant wait to see a user review. someone hurry up and buy one, lol

                        Top Ends T7A Wheelchair

                        I just got a new Top End T7A 3 months ago and I am really not impressed. The frame isn't even level. You can see it with your eye its so bad. Sent pictures to company over 2 months ago because they don't want to replace it and still waiting for an answer back. I got a Jay Cushion and the posts that it bolts too are flimsy and squeak really bad every time I lean back on it. The hardware is already starting to rust. Its heavier than my Quickie GPV. Other than that it does look cool. I should have went with another Quickie, at least Sunrise back up their products.
