While the electric motor never made its mark on the roadways against the internal-combustion king, it is waging a war of attrition that is difficult to deny. Electric flying machines, mowing and mopping machines, swimming and sweeping machines and even driving machines are everywhere. The electric wheelchair has evolved into the electric mobility scooter.
In the mobility aid industry, American manufacturer, Pride Mobility, exists as a hearty contender. It was initially founded on the basis of power lift chairs, which assist the user from a sitting to a standing position, then expanded its line with mobility scooters such as the Pride Elite Traveller Plus 4. This scooter has the prerequisites for a functional mobility aid: good maneuverability, easy disassembly, high carrying capacity, long battery life, stability and decent storage.
Pride's Go-Go Sport 3 is the three-wheeled version of its Elite Traveller and possesses most of the same attributes: a front frame-mounted seat post; a microprocessor-based controller; a Delta tiller with wraparound handles -- the charging port is located on the tiller on this model; an off-board dual voltage charger for the batteries -- two 12 volt/ 18AH -- which are included; and 2 sets of changeable colored panels in red or blue.
The Go-Go Sport is considered a high-performance scooter. As such, it is unlike the Tzora Elite, which is another 3-wheeled, albeit much lighter, scooter. The Tzora Elite's carrying capacity tops out at 250 pounds but the Go-Go, at 92.8 pounds, can carry up to 325 pounds. It can go up to 4.7 mph with a driving range between 9 and 12 miles on a single charge. Best of all, the Go-Go features a tight turning radius of 36" and comes with LED front lighting.
Great scooter! Easy to take apart and put in a car or trunk and go anywhere you want... Runs great!
It is very good and makes my life a lot easier.
Well built. Keeps the charge for a long time. Is easy to navigate and does well outside.
Unit is well made, quiet and comfortable to sit in. Made for a more outdoor person.
Easy to load and unload. Speed is faster than she is jogging . Easy to turn in small area. Swivel chair is so nice.
Love my travel scooter; pops apart and together in under a minute, easy to lift, load in the car...
What power! Everything I wanted and more. Scooter direct was great. Helped me make the right choice.
This a great scooter. Highly maneuverable and powerful. Great indoors and acceptable outdoors on smooth surfaces...
I knew I would be able to assemble the scooter once it was in the house and didn't choose this option. I'm very happy about the price of the scooter through...
