Ultralight TiLite ZRA

Initial photo's

We received the TiLite ZRA a few days ago, but we needed to do some reconfiguration before taking pictures. We swapped out most of the parts we bought separately, but still have a few more to do.

Overall, we are really pleased with DU100082 for the Flip-up Footrests. These were really challenging to spec, but the results work well and Rob is able to foot propel and use the footrests comfortably.

Finally, we have a few pictures to post (if you click on them you can see the larger image). When we get everything on, I'll take some more pictures.

TiFit IS EXCLUSIVELY OFFERED BY TiLITE.
The difference between a TiFit chair and all other chairs is that a TiFit chair is tailored specifically to you: Every frame is made to measure. No tube is cut, bent, or welded until our skilled fabricators have a full-scale drawing of your chair based on your exact measurements. Only TiLite offers TiFit. The optimal fit of a TiFit chair brings unparalleled performance and function. You will feel the difference in everything you do.

CUSTOM CONFIGURATION THE TiLITE WAY.
Custom configuration is when you are able to select options and components on a chair to meet your needs. While other companies offer some custom configuration, TiLite offers the widest range of options from which to choose. More choices mean more ability to truly create a custom configuration of options that best meets your needs. Choice matters and that is why TiLite offers more options than any other manufacturer! The choice is yours.

PERFORMANCE.
Wheelchairs that perform well combine superb fit with unparalleled quality of construction and the right blend of options. You owe it to yourself to experience the super smooth ride of a custom-built titanium wheelchair that fits perfectly. It will perform as well in 5 years as it does today.

STYLE.
Can a wheelchair be cool? What is cool? At its core, it’s a material object infused with human energy. On the new ZRA you can choose from more options than any other manufacturer, including over 20 frame finishes, six color anodize packages, and titanium tattoos! The Z Series – infused with human energy – yours. Now that’s cool.

It’s been a grueling 1 year project, but we are finally making some progress (or so I think). One day, I plan to come back to this post and …

Choosing an Ultralight – US

I started this page for someone choosing a lightweight or ultra-lightweight folding wheelchair in the US in the Chicago area. After that time I included more information for a few other folks. If I ever get the time, I’ll come back and give more general information and also about rigid ultra-lightweight wheelchairs.
