The Lightest Mobility Scooters – Make Travel Easier With a Lightweight Scooter

Light mobility scooters are in huge demand and one of the most popular types of scooter we sell. There are essentially two types of light mobility scooter – folding scooters and travel scooters. Because travel scooters break down into separate parts they are still the easiest to transport, but the advancement in lightweight folding scooters is making these more appealing. Lightweight mobility scooters are only for pavement, indoor and shopping – there are no class 3 (road legal) lightweight scooters on the market. However, with advancements in technology, we could well see one in the near future.

Lightest Folding Mobility Scooters

The Lightest Travel Mobility Scooters

Travel mobility scooters are defined as those that can be dismantled for easier transport. They usually break down into 4 or 5 parts that can easily be fitted into a car boot. They are the cheapest and most convenient if you have a car, but if you are travelling on public transport, a folding scooter is often the best option.
