    Will I be the first in Canada to have a ZX1? I'd feel special if I was.
    Sorry no, you'd be the 2nd.

    I saw Pat's ZX1 on his friends chair at expo on Friday. That thing is SICK!!! I have to say from what I saw it is worth every penny. If I ever need to go with power assist or power chair I will look into the ZX1 for sure.
    SCI as a result of spinal surgery
    TiLite Aero Z!!!

    I received my brand new shiny black and carbon fiber patterned ZX-1 three days ago. Due to visiting relatives and work obligations I did not have a moment to unpack it until last night. Today I set out to get it set-up and adjusted to fit my chair and start using it. It was very simple to adjust to fit my chair properly. I turned 6 allen head screws. Two on the ZX-1 and 4 on my wheel chair. THEN I backed up to it... pushed the button.... AND away I went!

    Pat's device is the bomb... the cat's meow.... the hot tip.... the best thing since sliced bread.... I LOVE IT SO FAR!!!!

    So I used it around my house today. Mostly indoors with a few trips out into the yard. Tomorrow I will take it to town with me and give it a real work-out. I will say this. It has 5 different power levels and so far I have not needed to to go above three. (I have visited setting 5 to see how fast it goes and I'll say it goes plenty fast.)

    I will keep reporting on the performance of the ZX-1 and what type of challenges I am putting on it. So far it seems to be what I expected it to be.

    I received mine last Friday. I too am completley enthralled with it. It takes a while to comprehend it's nuances but it's getting there. Trying to master going over the thresholds without skidding the power wheels. I put up a few small threshold ramps and that seems to really help. Will try to see how hard it is to manuver up and down my van ramp and see if I can transfer into my drivers seat with it on. Sholdn't be a problem; just going to take some nerve the first time.

    Will post more as I learn to use it more efficiently. I did try it with my Freewheel and dang, it really smoothed out the ride even more. Hope my frame isn't taking a beating; don't think so.

    Like Grange said, it was easy to adjust right out of the box and has plenty of power. Pat the Rat is definitly a genius to have come up with the ZX.
