    New Apex Carbon Chair

    Pharmacist, C4-5 injury but functional C6 (no triceps/flexors)

    Has anyone heard pricing on this chair?

    Base price is $2600 plus an upcharge of $1700 for the carbon fiber upgrade. Compared to a TiLite which is a very similar base price with a +/- $700 upcharge for titanium upgrade.

    She's not a very pretty chair IMO, but at least people are experimenting with new materials (and it's not $20,000 like that full CF chair from the UK).

    I need some Knee guards(those red pads to protect the frame while I throw it around to get it in the car) like that for my Tilite.

    With carbon, impacts are very bad things.

    I can imagine. I thought he was talking about something for his TiLite which can be 'fixed' if you choose to with a scuffpad.

    Get it sprayed with Line-X on the spots where you have wear. My local guys do it every time I have a new chair. Or if I need a touch-up.

    Do you have any pictures ?
    How well does the Line-X hold up.

    The front of my frame is getting pretty bad from being dragged across the concrete as I maneuver it into the car every time.
