The Pride iRide Mobility scooter is a brand new, innovative and ultra-lightweight folding scooter designed for users who require a travel and portable scooter. The Pride iRide Mobility scooter is extremely lightweight and weighs just 19 kg(42 lbs) and only 21 kg, including its lithium battery, making it very easy to transport and lift. This scooter has a very small turning radius of 33.5″, meaning it is extremely manoeuvrable.
When using the iRide, users can select between 2 different speed modes. Speed One option gives a smoother, slower ride between 1 and 2 mph, while Speed Option 2 allows you to reach up to 3.7 mph. The Pride iRide has a full digital display that includes the battery power level and current speed in mph. The iRide has two disk-style brakes that are used to stop the rear wheels of the scooter, with a hand lever located on the left handlebar. This is one of the few folding mobility scooters on the market that also disassembles to be a travel mobility scooter as well. The folding frame and removable seat make the iRide ideal for packing into storage areas such as a car boot or cupboard.
The frame length is 38” with an overall width of 20”. 36-volt, 5.2 AH lithium-ion battery powers the scooter and has a range of up to 8 miles with a max user weight of 17 stone 12 lbs (113 kg). With a great selection of colours to choose from and an eye-catching design, the iRide is a fantastic choice for anyone wanting to avoid the look of a traditional mobility scooter.

What is a mobility scooter?
A mobility scooter is an electric vehicle that can provide a simple and affordable way of getting out and about independently if you have mobility problems.
A typical mobility scooter looks a bit like the ATTO Sport but functions more like a cross between a motorised wheelchair and a motor scooter. However, they travel much more slowly than motor scooters, with maximum speeds of 8 mph for road scooters or 4 mph on pavements. Although there are different types available, all mobility scooters have bike-style steering (a ‘tiller’) to direct the wheels, large padded upright seats and simple controls. They are powered by batteries.
Who is a mobility scooter suitable for?
Mobility scooters can be ideal if you have limited mobility but still want to be able to visit friends and family nearby, do your shopping or get around town without relying on others to help you get around. They’re suitable if you have a good sitting balance, the ability to step on and off, adequate eyesight and a good memory. However, if you have problems with any of the above, or if you have a medical condition that is likely to change, this might not be the best solution for you.
