    studio photos of my Icon

    I reshot some product photos for Icon, as there have been a few changes from the one that's currently (5/7/12) on the website (the front wing being the main one). This is my chair.

    • seat: 17x17" (laminate version)
    • 10" ADI back (aluminum version)
    • Round Betty Dinos (available through Icon) w/ Q-Grip handrims (not currently available through Icon).


    Before you ask... I haven't weighed it yet. Yes, a CF seat & a CF back would make it lighter by 2+ pounds, but I was curious how things would go w/o the high-end options. It's not a problem as-is, though I can see myself upgrading someday (the CF seat is gorgeous). I'll be taking some more non-studio photos to show the chair in an everyday environment. I've got some close-ups of some details w/ that set too, so stay tuned for more.

    Feedback is welcome.









    and, for sake of discussion, here's one w/ the stock upholstery back.

    Looks nice. I really like the blacked out dinos. Are you going to do a review on the q-grip handrims? Ive been waiting for some feedback on them. Just wondering, if the icon back is adjustable why didnt you go with the fixed mounting hardware for your adi backrest? or cant you get the fixed hardware with the alum one.

    Yeah, I'll talk about the Q-Grips elsewhere. I haven't had a ton of time with them yet, but they're nice. I used vinyl handrims for years, then went to uncoated, and now I'm back to a coating.

    The fixed hardware isn't available w/ the aluminum version, and was removed from the order form for the CF version a couple months ago. I have fixed hardware on an old JetStream Pro that I may toy around with someday, but the 2-point pro hardware got my preference over the quick release version. It does offer different positions than the adjustable back angle does on its own...

    I created the order form. I received a request to remove that option. I don't have the reason why.

    You mean from the Icon order form? If so, I can understand why, I thought I had some issues when I got mine. My intial thought was that it was wrong and didn't fit, but after some thought, I realized it was fine and I figured it out. They are a tight fit.
    I got mine through sportaid, colonial medical had additional 10% off on top of the normal 30% off. So I got the 110% price guarentee from sportaid on a 40% deal, couldn't pass that up.
