THE LIGHTEST ULTRALIGHT
23 LBS PLUS BATTERY
The TravelScoot Cruiser's frame and complete seat weigh 23 lbs. combined. Add your choice of lithium-ion battery and the total weight of the scooter ranges from 27-29 lbs.! Simply put, this is hands-down the world's lightest electric mobility scooter.
Folded dimensions (inches): Length 29 or 34 (w/front wheel), Width 21.5, Height 10.25
16 LB FRAME W/ DETACHABLE WHEEL
Our scooter frames are designed to be the lightest, strongest, and most portable conceivable. All TravelScoot models are made from TIG-welded, heat-treated, aircraft-grade 7005 aluminum. TIG-welding is stronger, cleaner, and more aesthetically pleasing than the more common MIG welds found on virtually every other mobility scooter made today. Although TIG welding is more costly due to the high level of skill required, you can be confident that when you buy the TravelScoot, you will own the strongest mobility scooter on the market due to its incredible 10:1 strength-to-weight ratio! Absolutely no other electric folding mobility scooter on earth comes close to the ultra-lightweight of the TravelScoot Cruiser. The TravelScoot Escape is the next in line to the title.
DESIGN AND STRENGTH
The secret to our scooters' strength, in addition to using the best materials and welds, is our one-of-a-kind triangular design. It's quite simple; a triangle is much stronger at sustaining heavy loads than a two-point design since weight is more evenly distributed to the entire area of the scooter frame versus having the entire load supported by nothing but the rear welds on a T-framed scooter. We have many customers weighing over 450 lbs that depend on the TravelScoot daily.This is why our warranty weight limit is the highest you can find among lightweight mobility scooters.
5 LB SEAT ASSEMBLY
At just 5 lbs., the TravelScoot seat assembly is easy to handle and can be broken down easily for those in need of extra cargo space. The patented yoke can now accommodate riders with a height of 4'1-6'11.
- Backrest (1.51 lbs.)
- Yoke (1.27 lbs.)
- Seat (3.22 lbs.)
Made of 100% Panasonic cells, housed in either an aluminum case or high-impact Sabic C6600 case with a UL 94-5VB flame rating. These batteries are tough, built to last, and will certainly go the distance. Click here to learn more!
PERFORMANCE AND FEATURES
Our direct-drive hub motor performs substantially better than its competition in two ways. First, it utilizes a rear-wheel-drive system. Due to the rider's weight being positioned over the drive wheel, the tire has a much better purchase on whatever terrain the rider is traveling over. Front-wheel drive will often spin-out when traveling over uneven terrain or inclines. Second, with the hub motor situated inside the left-rear tire, it is protected from costly damage that occurs primarily to the front wheel. Damage to the front wheel may cost you a new motor, controller, wheel, and fork, in addition to the labor. Not so with the TravelScoot!
SOLID RUBBER TIRES
Solid rubber tires mean no more flats! The tire width of the Cruiser is much thinner than the tires on the Escape. For this reason, we recommend using the Cruiser indoors when possible.
All current TravelScoot models have forward and reverse. Backup speed is going to be lower for all those tights spots that you may find yourself in such as elevators, dressing rooms, small restrooms, etc. This will provide you with unsurpassed maneuverability.
The controls are simple to use. You don't need to push multiple buttons to get the speed you want. Just turn the scooter on and engage the twist-grip throttle to accelerate as needed. The maximum speed of the Cruiser is 3.2 mph while the speed of the Escape is 4.7 mph (can be lowered in-shop).
SINGLE-HINGE FOLDING MECHANISM
Arguably the best feature on the TravelScoot is the locking mechanism. With the new folding design, the TravelScoot will collapse with just a single click of the locking pin. To fold, simply remove the seat by disengaging the quick-release clamp then press the locking pin. All this can be done in mere seconds! Combined with its ultra-light weight and hassle-free folding mechanism, you can load it into your vehicle and be on your way in no time flat.
Everyone has different mobility needs. Some people can't lift their legs over a bar, some can. Some need to straddle the seat, and others just need to sit down and position themselves to get comfortable. Whatever your needs, we have the seat for you. With our adjustable seat, you can easily remove the backrest with a push of a button, swivel the seat, adjust the height of the cushions, and get the right support you need for your back.
Simply rotate the seat to facilitate getting on and off by releasing an easy-to-use lever clamp. You can adjust the clamp tension to suit your hand strength. Also included with every TravelScoot is an aluminum seat spacer which helps maintain seat height when the clamp is released.
The compact TravelScoot backrest gives you the support you need where you need it the most. Just use the provided Allen wrench to adjust the backrest cushion to your preferred comfort level, whether you need support mid-back, your lower lumbar region, or anywhere in between.
