Are you looking for a new budget mobility scooter but don’t know what to buy? Regardless of your budget, it is an enormous investment. You want to know you’re getting the right product with the right features and at the right price. You don’t want to waste money on a false economy. That’s why we have compiled this guide to our bestselling and favourite budget vehicles.
Pavement Budget Mobility Scooters
It’s important to differentiate between those suitable only for pavements and those that may go on roads. Pavement models are limited to 3-4mph. Due to their features, you should avoid using them on roads unless you have no other choice.
Abilize Strider Sport:The first of our pavement budget mobility scooters is this sporty little model. Its main benefits are how easy it is to take apart and lightness for transportation. That makes it the perfect balance between the needs of a lightweight pavement scooter and an even lighter weight travel scooter. But lightweight doesn’t mean compromising on comfort. Tests have shown that it performs better for distance and battery longevity than most others in its class.
CareCo Victory: The next in our range of budget mobility scooters is this impressive lightweight model with our own brand name on. Appealing to those who want a model with hybrid features between a travel mobility scooter and a typical pavement scooter this is perfect for most users. It offers great range and distance with strong and stable suspension on the front for these bumpy pavements and side streets. Revolutionary electromagnetic brakes make this one of the smoothest rides you’ll ever experience.
Pride Apex Lite: This model is one of our new range of budget mobility scooters; it gives you the best of both worlds once again. It has the solid structure of a pavement mobility scooter but the bonus of a quick release disassembly that you normally only see in travel models. This model is unique for its customisable tiller bar. Micro adjustments make it supremely flexible for your ultimate comfort. With the pneumatic tyres, this is about as smooth as it gets.
Budget Mobility Scooters for the Road
These heavier vehicles are not as easy to transport. They are sturdier and have more safety features including lights. Therefore, they are safer to go on the roads than the pavement vehicles and can travel faster. However, when on the pavement their speed must be limited to 4mph.
CareCo Titan: One of the most popular road budget mobility scooters in the CareCo range, the Titan has a number of impressive features. It has a full suspension system, ideal for when travelling at top speed on a road. It may be used on the pavement at lower speed. You can ensure you don’t break this speed limit with a simple flick of a switch. Particularly impressive is the Captain’s Chair – a fully-adjustable seat designed for maximum comfort for longer journeys.
Rascal 388 XL: When you first see our Rascal, your first reaction might be to assume that it’s a lightweight pavement scooter. Yet it has a top speed of 6mph and has all the features and functions you come to expect from a larger mobility scooter. It’s great for road use but with the added bonus of easy manoeuvrability around the home at the same time. This is one model that you can take on holiday with you. See all our Rascal scooters.
