Very smart electronics
One of the best seat elevators around (40 cm)
|Weaknesses:||A couple of seconds startup time|
|Comments:||Otto Bock B600 is great for outdoor use. It tackles uphills and curbs effortlessly. It has suspension at the rear wheels, and the caster forks are equipped with springs (optional). The chair seems to go slightly faster than the reported 10 km/h.|
The wide and knobbed tires seem to slightly hinder indoor maneuverability, and the chair feels a little front-weighted. However, B600 almost never runs out of juice. It's very strong, robust and the electronics are surprisingly smart.
One thing I enjoy is the seat elevator. It lifts me higher than other chairs I've seen.
I love my Otto Bock!
