Terry Bywater

“The Elite CX is the smoothest and most responsive wheelchair I have ever played in allowing me to perform at the highest level."

Truly merge your mind, body and wheelchair with this superior CX seating option

What could possibly make the Elite better? A seat that blends your body and chair to become one entity; this fusion allows for a super responsive connection that still remains unparalleled. Bonded together, the wheelchair and player have maximised efficiency and optimised performance; control of the chair becomes pure instinct over direct propulsion. You’ll fail to find a snugger fit than your brand new Elite CX.

Technical specifications

The most important feature of the Elite CX is the use of carbon in the seat. Carbon fibre has a high tensile strength with an incredibly low weight. By creating a seat from this, we are able to curve the design to shape completely around the contours of your body, ensuring a maximum connection that results in any upper body movements to be transferring to the chair itself. This evening out of the energy distribution makes the chair more comfortable and improves responsiveness and performance.
