For many people who use mobility scooters, heading out in the winter weather isn’t top of their list. As the nights get darker, the winter weather can wear you down, making getting outdoors a but of a chore. Beat the blues by investing in a scooter that can tackle tough terrain and keep you moving all throughout the season. We’ve picked five of Mobility Solutions’ best tried and tested scooters, to help you decide.
Pride Mobility’s Ranger
As far as scooters go, the Ranger raises the bar in terms of its outdoor capabilities. Looking more like a beach buggy than a traditional mobility scooter, the Ranger handles tough terrain and bad weather with ease compared to some other scooters. The chunky pneumatic tyres are a huge 14.5 inches across allowing it to power easily over bumpy terrain. With a powerful 75AH battery, the Ranger can comfortably cover long distances. But it’s not just big on power, it’s also big on comfort. Enhanced front and rear suspension and a supportive captain’s seat make bumpy rides a thing of the past. Its crisp LED lighting package means that you can drive in low light and poor weather conditions with confidence.
TGA Mobility’s Breeze S4
The Breeze S4 is a robust scooter that focuses on convenience and comfort. It’s ideal for larger users with a maximum weight capacity of 31 stone. The large 40AH batteries give a range of 20 miles and the handy lockable rear storage box mean your items are always secure. The large front LED headlight is perfect for low light conditions, making driving much safer in Winter months. TGA even offers an optional extra of a fixed canopy to fit the scooter, giving high-quality protection from the elements.
This is one scooter that gives a fantastic blend of performance and style. The FR1′s sporty design with imposing front bumper and unusual double basket feature ensures heads will turn wherever you go. The comfortable captain’s seat has pleasing lateral support and the contrasting red stitching is a high-quality touch. This scooter isn’t all style, no substance though. It has all the luxury features you’d want, including 13-inch pneumatic tyres, full LED lighting package and double-wishbone suspension. Reliable and comfortable, this is an all-year-round, winner.
Pride Colt Pursuit
The Colt Pursuit is the largest in the range of Colt models and it’s one of the sturdiest we’ve tried. The high-grade rubber-coated handles ensure you keep your grip secure, even in a downpour, and the low profile tyres coupled with generous suspension ensures comfort whatever the weather. There’s also an optional battery upgrade from 50AH to 70AH to give even more performance. This scooter is a great all-rounder.
Scooterpac’s fold-away canopy is a great addition to your scooter and makes sure you stay safe and dry from the winter weather. It comes in two sizes and bolts securely to your scooter. The perspex windscreen protects from wind and rain and the easy to use double-sided zip makes it simple to get in and out. If the weather clears up and you no longer require it, the Scooterpac folds behind the seat and is secured by the handy cover. Simple and ingenious!
