Overview of the Top End Schulte 7000 Series BB Chair
The all new Top End Schulte 7000 Series Basketball Chair is made of a lighter weight aluminum for an overall better feel. The 7000 aluminum frame is about two pounds lighter than the previously used 6061 aluminum, making the Schulte 7000 Series more comparable to titanium frames. This basketball chair also features the Nord-Lock bolt securing system for the axle receivers.
Benefits of 7000 Aluminum
Not only is this type of aluminum lighter than others, but it is also significantly stronger. The additional strength allows for a reduction in the wall thickness of the tubes which reduces weight of the chair. In addition, the rigidity and strength of the 7000 aluminum is further enhanced by Invacare Top End's sophisticated heat treating and powder coating process.
Nord-Lock Bolt Securing System
Axle receivers are locked into the frame with the Nord-Lock bolt securing system. This system minimizes axle play which makes the rear wheels more secure and solid, an important feature in a basketball chair. Nord-Lock bolts have been around since 1982 and they are highly effective in resisting loosening by vibrations and load.
In addition to the new aluminum and axle locking system, the Schulte 7000 Series has an updated design when compared to the Top End Paul Schulte Signature BB. The head tube utilizes precision components that maximize stiffness, reduce play and improve overall responsiveness of the casters. Also, the frame members sleek and curved design add a sharp look to the camber tubes, anti-tips and offensive wing.
