A little lean to the left and I can spin the right tire easily, and vice versa.

    As he said, it's far enough out of the way, no chance of sore from it, however it is easy to knock out the valve. I loved the cushion, slim, light and easy, then I knocked the valve out after about a year. I used some pvc sealant to put it back in as it is just plastic, but a few months later it came out again. Since then it's hasn't held air like it did. I'm trying to find another cushion that is as light and low profile but doesn't have the valve problem.

    My Zoid developed a leak by the valve but it was within the 2 year warranty period and Varilite replaced the cushion.

    Shows how much I pay attention to warranty stuff when I get things. One of the best cushions I've had, better then Jay because of the weight and better then Roho because it's stable.

    Still haven't decided what I'll get with new chair, about to get a Supracor from a local dealer to test and see if I like it. If not then it will probably be a Zoid again.

    i like the ride cushion. its about the same weight as a low pro roho(which gave me a total of 4 stage 3's on the ishchials). since ive been on the ride zero sores and when i was mapped no pressure anywhere except my hamstrings where i have plenty of natural cushioning.

    i want some sure locks as i hate these damn scissors. i have a zr but with 5" of dump my camber tube is almost on the frame. if i can get past that how much width does it add on each side?

    No increase in width, at least not with custom integrated Surelock/ZR clamp setup.

    James:

    I don't think it should be an issue, but it's best to contact Jack (surelock@gbta.net or call (866) 315-3327) to be certain.

    6° is a lot of camber for everyday use, innit? The doorways must be very wide where you live. What is your seat width?

    Stimulite Sport is the best cushion for active people imo, i`ve got one and love it, never back to air or gel cushion again.
