    Carbon Fiber Racing Wheelchair

    Selling my full carbon fiber racing wheelchair.

    This chair is a feet forward/footplate design. Very easy to transfer in and out of vs. kneeling. Also very comfortable for long distance training/events.

    Specs:

    16" width, approx. 17" depth using Supracor cushion.
    Adjustable footplate position
    700C Corima carbon fiber disk rear wheels with tubular tires
    spoke front wheel
    12 degree rear wheel camber, toe adjustable
    hand brake
    steering damper (no crown compensation)
    trip computer (speed, distance, etc.)

    This is a light, rigid, fast racer. Not an inexpensive machine. Serious inquiries please PM/email.

    Will post photos as soon as I resize them.

    Located in Alabama. Local pickup, freight shipping or delivery available.

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Uh, posting a price would help.

    Consider donating it to your local rehab/adaptive sports center. Or to the US Paralympic team for as fancy as yours is. Both should be able to give you a tax-deductible receipt for whatever sale price you're asking.

    Price was intentionally omitted from public view. Serious potential buyers contact me directly to discuss purchase details. Other comments and advice should be posted to the appropriate discussion areas, not the classified section intended for those actually buying/selling items.

    I’m interested. But would be my first chair do you think honestly this is to much of a chair for a person just getting into this?

    Jeramie630,

    I don't think there's any chair that is really "too much" chair to start with. This was my first and only racing chair; and that was kind of the intention. It's a chair that was built to last. What I will say is that it is an expensive racing chair by comparison and the decision is not whether it's too much as far as performance, but whether you anticipate using it enough to justify the cost.

    For me, the fact that it is alot easier to transfer in and out of than a kneeling chair allowed me to use it far more frequently for recreation/training around my neighborhood. I also ran a few local charity 10k's and half marathons a year with it.

    I'll PM you my contact info, feel free to contact me any time to discuss.

    Thanks!
    Ben

    Hey if you can afford it, this is a beautiful chair. Make sure it fits you though. An ill fitting chair would be a bad way to spend your money. How much do you plan to use it? There are cheaper models out there if you are not planning to use it frequently. This is for those seriously committed to racing.
