    folding wheelchair

    I haven´t bought or researched wheelchairs for a few years. Anything new regarding folding wheelchairs? any recommendations for a good, reliable folding chair that won´t break the bank?

    Thanks!

    Went with Ti Lite Aero X. 1st chair from them and my favorite. Rides better than any of my rigids!

    My last two chairs have been Invacare MVP. They're a bit clunkier than chairs like the Xenon, but they have been pretty reliable and are very affordable (under $1500).

    I've gotten good feedback from quickie 2 and 2hp as well. Try some different chairs out though. Plenty of vendors will let you demo chairs and see what suits you best.

    I use a TiLite 2GX, which is pretty pricey. On the upside, it's definitely lighter, more rigid and better made than my old Quickie 2.
