    Sorry, no experience, but I think this one looks kind of nice for being easy to transport http://www.mysmartchair.com/

Equipment: TiLite ZRA 2 and 2GX, Spinergy ZX-1, RioMobility Firefly. Knowledge: relative newbie for high-level equipment (2012), but willing to try to help others who are new with similar limitations (definitely not a guru, but inquisitive).

      That's a cool chair. Have never seen it advertised anywhere in disability related magazines. Do you know where it's made?

        They list their address in Jersey City, NJ. Apparently there is something in the New Mobility January 2014 issue

              Look almost identical, but they do not look adjustable for different weights/height at all, and could put you at risk for pressure ulcer development with the thin cushion and leg positioning (esp. for someone tall). Really designed more for frail elderly or as a scooter alternative for those with limited walking distance rather than someone with SCI.

                  Thanks for the videos. These chairs may be useful for visiting, etc. when full power wheelchair may be too heavy to be lifted over stairs, or fit into a car trunk.

                    I like mine. Yamaha jwx1 wheels on my old kuschall champion, with upgraded lithium ion battery.

                    Not bad, $4255 delivered, junk the crap and stick them on any manual. Just make a tiny bracket.
