Micromus Folding Mobility Scooter – Our Lightest Mobility Scooter

July 02, 2024 -

Anyone who has difficulty walking any distance will know that a mobility scooter has the power to deliver renewed independence and freedom. If you love the idea of a scooter but are concerned about where to store it, or if your current mobility scooter is always in the way, the latest addition to our range could be just what you’ve been looking for.

The Micromus is an all-new lightweight folding scooter. Based on the hugely popular Minimus, it has all the comfort, safety and performance features of its sister product but in an even lighter package.

It is a genuine triumph of modern engineering. Let’s take a closer look at the Micromus and see how it stacks up alongside the rest of our extensive range of mobility scooters in terms of performance, comfort and convenience.

The Lightest Just Got Lighter

When the Minimus arrived in CareCo showrooms a couple of years ago, it set new standards. Customers were astonished that so much comfort and performance could be packed into a scooter weighing just 17.8 Kg (40 lb) – that’s less than a packed suitcase.

The secret of the Minimus’ success is its aluminium frame. But now the new Micromus has gone a step better, adding a carbon fibre tiller that is just as strong but even lighter. The result? A mobility scooter that has all the benefits of the Minimus but that weighs in at a mere 15.4 Kg (34 lb).

No Compromises on Comfort, Performance or Safety

Make no mistake, lightweight does not mean flimsy. In recent decades, carbon fibre has been the go-to material for light weight and strength. You will find carbon fibre components in everything from spacecraft to Formula 1 cars to racing boats.

The carbon fibre tiller is mated to the same lightweight aluminium frame as the Minimus. It has the same sliding mechanism for simple folding that has made the Minimus so popular with users, and when folded up, it measures just 27cm wide and 69cm long (11”x27”).

On the go, the Micromus boasts the sort of comfort, performance and features that you might only expect to find on a bulkier scooter. These include the following:

  • Tiller control bar with modern LCD display
  • Wigwag throttle control that is kinder to arthritic fingers
  • 4 mph top speed
  • Comfortable padded canvas seat
  • Choice of colours
  • Lithium-ion battery

A Welcome Addition to the Range

Last year, we introduced the Maximus alongside the Minimus. Now the new Micromus means there are three models to choose from in this exciting and innovative range of lightweight folding scooters. So how do they compare and which is the right choice for you?

The definitive way to answer that question is to pop in to one of our CareCo showrooms and take a look at them over a cup of tea or coffee – the kettle is always at the ready! But in brief, here are the key points so you can compare and contrast each of them:

  • Minimus – 10.3 Ah Lithium ion battery with a range of 8 miles. Standard tiller. Maximum user weight 18 st 1 lb.
  • Maximus27.6 Ah Lithium ion battery with a range of 25 miles. Delta tiller. Maximum user weight 18 st 1 lb.
  • Micromus10.3 Ah Lithium ion battery with a range of 8 miles. Carbon fibre standard tiller. Maximum user weight 15 st 10 lb.

See the comparison table below.

Complete mobility and freedom

Mobility problems have an inevitable impact on your independence. However, with the right mobility scooter for your needs, you can get around as and when you need to, without causing either inconvenience or worry to your loved ones.

The Micromus is perfect if you travel regularly in the car or by public transport. It folds up to just 27cm high and 69cm long, about the same size as a medium suitcase. Combined with its incredibly light weight, it is simplicity itself to pop it into the boot of your car or on the luggage rack in a train or bus.

With integrated carry handles, its easy to lift and carry, and the 10.3 Ah Lithium ion battery will provide a range of up to eight miles on a single charge when you arrive at your destination.

Try out the Micromus for yourself

The Micromus mobility scooter is the lightest folding mobility scooter on the UK market and is rewriting the rules for convenience, comfort and performance. It delivers the latest technology in a modern design and has comfortable features, but can still be folded and carried in the boot of a small car. It means users with mobility challenges can enjoy complete independence and freedom on their own terms.

Why not find out for yourself? Pay a visit to your local CareCo showroom and try out the Micromus alongside its sister products. You’ll be amazed at how well such a light scooter compares with other scooters on the market. You can also give us a call on 0333 015 5000 for more details.
