    Those prices are ridiculous. Buy an Icon or Per4max or Box for that money and get REAL suspension.

    Can't argue, but interested to hear an unbiased opinion on them. I didn't see the cost initially......

    I'm real curious how they'd hold up under lateral forces. I'd like to see Aaron Fotheringham give them a spin.

    (PS I agree, a suspension chair is much less expensive.)

    Me too. Especially running them with camber.

    Probably gonna be hard to get an unbiased opinion, given that spending $3,000 on a set of wheels might create bias all by itself!

    Not tried them yet. But I'm getting them through Numotion (For DEFINITELY not that cost) with a new chair. I can keep people updated on thoughts with photos and video if you want? My chair is due to me next week.

    I've seen a couple of folks who have been testing them.
    neither was impressed enough to part with cash to get some.
    seem to be heavy and they're not adjustable.
    "they feel kind of squirly when you're not on flat level surface or you're rounding corners."

    Wondering what the cash price is then... if that's the msrp.

    look forward to more reviews.
