EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 Review

The EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 wheelchair is durable and powerful, with one of the strongest motors in its class. Not only is the battery life on this unit average at 10+ miles per charge, but the long-life battery option provides 18 miles per charge and has the ability to combine both, giving the user an extended time/distance potential; higher than any other model in its class.

Maneuverability

The EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 has rear wheels that measure 12 inches in diameter while the front wheels are 7.5 inches. The ground clearance is a relatively high 3.9 inches, which makes it easy to get around on slightly bumpier terrain.

The lithium battery boasts up to 1000 power cycles. The 10 Ah battery gets over 10 miles of driving distance, while the longer-life battery (15 Ah) battery can go up to 18 miles before needing a charge. This allows the user to travel and get around for a longer time before needing to stop and recharge the unit. The DX12 also allows the user to combine 2 batteries to get class leading driving distance of over 20 miles before charging is required.

With a top speed of 5 mph, the EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 helps the rider to get around quickly. Though the turning radius is slightly larger at 33.2 inches, there is still plenty of sharpness to this wheelchair, in order to get maneuver in tight or crowded places. The user weight capacity of the EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 is 330 pounds, which for such a compact, maneuverable and folding wheelchair is certainly impressive.


Comfort & Design

The EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 is lightweight at only 58 pounds, compact, and folds up quickly and easily, which makes it very easy to transport or store. Since the unit is so portable and lightweight, you won’t need to install a lift on your vehicle to transport it. Unfolding is a snap; when you lift the unit up by the back support, the unit literally unfolds itself.

The joystick can be mounted on the left or right side, which allows users the ability to customize their chair to their desired side. The armrests are able to be raised to provide easy access to the user to mount and dismount. The seat and seat cover are removable for easy cleaning and the back support reclines in 5 different positions to ensure that the rider is comfortable.

The EZ Lite Cruiser Deluxe DX12 stands upright on its 2 rear wheels when folded, meaning that you do not have to lean it or wedge it to keep it from tipping over. Extra accessories are available to purchase so that you can customize your chair as required.
