    Why always black chairs

    a couple years ago it hit me

    why is black the prominate color

    if i'm outside my chair heats up some thing terrible, my headrest is so hot i don't use it

    it's seems like it should be a health issue,

    outdoors i sweat more leading to groin issues

    roho black

    doesn't desert como or some other color seem more appropriate

    I agree. I am out side in arizona 90% of the time and black doesn't make since. I am sure if it was any other color i wouldn't be as hot.

    If you go by the surface temperature of cars, white is the coolest by far. Even silver is hot. A big sombrero and a white white over your lap should do it!

    It's just personal taste.

    I'm not a fan of bright colors, chrome wheels, or flashing casters because I feel it screams, "HEY! HEY EVERYONE! LOOK AT ME! OVER HERE! I'M IN A WHEELCHAIR!"

    I mean, it's pretty obvious. I don't need to draw any more attention to it.

    But that's just me.

    I'm being cheeky, my black wheelchair, cushion always matches my tuxedo!

    All the best,

    I always thought it was so we could ninja around better LOL. Camo might make more sense!

    It's the cushion and arm rests etc.

    I'm pretty sure the OP is referring to power chairs, which, I believe, are predominantly black.
