    ZR weight "1.4 lbs" lighter than ZRA, is consider a small amount.
    But the price is a lot of different, ZR extra $300.00.

    may i know is that extra $300, just because having "1.4 lbs" lighter or something else ??

    300 dollars is a small amount, and 1.4 pounds is a lot of weight.

    ZR = Limited Adjustability, ZRA = Full Adjustability. The added weight is because of all of the adjustability. I think you will find many posts on the forum that talk about adjustability, and whether you need it or not. My personal view is that if you are new to ultralight wheelchairs, go with full adjustability. If you are experienced and know exactly what you need, limited adjustability might be okay for you. Being only 2 years into having an ultralight wheelchair, I am very glad that we have the fully adjustable ZRA.

    I bought a ZRA when I changed to Tilite after lots of years with Top End. I hated the larger diameter tubing used on the ZR and ZRA. Went to a TR3 with the smaller tubing and full box frame. Will never,ever go back to a ZR or ZRA.

    Elatson is correct to go with an adjustable if you are new to the company or not sure of your measurements. Remember one companies measurements may end up being completely different using them for another companies chair measurements. That's why I went for an adjustable when changing to Tilite; glad I did as I had to adjust for the differences.
