Chris from Victoria, BC, Canada submitted this review on September 7th 2007 at 11:40 AM. Chris is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Good colour choices, tracks very well when aligned properly, bearings last long and I use it a lot, in rain and dust. Good backrest padding that holds up very well. Generally durable overall and I jump curbs and use it actively. Price was reasonable.
Weaknesses:Too heavy, tippy when reaching forward, many sharp edges and exposed bolts, footplate gets loose and noisy and unfixable, backrest support bolts bend and break every couple of years and I'm only 168 pounds. Once the cheap locking springs break, the backrest loses its locking capacity which really makes it hard to transfer into back seat of car. Once seat sling sags it can't be tightened, have to add padding to cushion to compensate.
Comments:Never had much choice when I first purchased this model and I have had two successive identical 3000's over the last 9 years.
It is very obsolete.

Mark from London, Ontario Canada submitted this review on November 7th 2005 at 12:33 AM. Mark is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Good turning radius and pretty light weight frame. The seating position is fairly comfortable but it it still a little short even with the frame extenders.
Weaknesses:Front foot rest was too low for someone who is tall, tends to groundout going over even low angles. I break spokes at a rate of about 2 per week due to incorrect wheel alignment. The back support pins are a terrible design. They bend really easily and it throws the back out of alignment. The front casters develop really bad highspeed wobble and no repair shop or the manufacturer has been able to correct this.
Comments:Worst chair I have ever owned. I have tried working with the company and the resellers to correct some of the issues I have had with this chair and have had no success at all. I would never buy another Champion chair.

Christina from Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada submitted this review on December 14th 2004 at 11:12 AM. Christina is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Very compact, lightweight, easy to maneuver. Easy to take apart (wheels come off, frame is lightweight) and easy to lift into vehicle. L-shaped frame is very minimalist, making it easy to fit into any sized car. Adjustable seat height and backrest height.
Weaknesses:Footrest has broken, but over time.
Comments:This is the best chair I have found for easy transfer into a vehicle and comfortable daily use. My favourite!

Daryl from Ontario Canada submitted this review on July 31st 2002 at 12:37 AM. Daryl is an end user who has over a year of experience with the product.
Strengths:Very Compact in terms a tight turning radius, Light weight, Comfortable with a jay xtream cushion, Relatively easy to adjust as long as you don't take the axle off.
The bubble thing makes it idiot proff in terms of setting the axle right.
Solid clothing guards are great on this chair.
Weaknesses:It has a serious caster problem, speed wobble, had it in 2 times for repairs, still not fixed. Tried adding frogs legs. It works a bit better but is very frustrating.
The original tires and casters are nice but wanted to see if I could fix the wobble problem. The problem may be the frame being bent.
I do not like the bare tube ends that provide elevation of seat height. It has made a mess of my plastic bumper on my car getting it in and out.
Comments:Overall I do like the chair. Easy to manuver and responds quickly to user input. Great for ease of use as an everyday chair. As a sports chair I would use a Quickie GPV. Found frame flexes too much. It is a very short frame and can be prone to tipping forward if your not careful.
