Product Overview

Perfect for both indoor and outdoor venues such as cruises, packed gravel, dirt paths, grass, and uneven terrain. This heirloom scooter is built to last generations. This is an ultra lightweight electric mobility scooter for just about anyone looking to escape their limitations.

The TravelScoot's frame and complete seat weigh 30 lbs. combined. Add your choice of lithium-ion battery and the total weight of the scooter ranges from 33-35 lbs.!


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 much 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!


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.


At just 5 lbs., the TravelScoot seat assembly is easy to handle and can be disassembled quickly for those in need of extra cargo space. Although extremely lightweight, the patented yoke is the key to the TravelScoot's stability and strength as the rider's weight is distributed over two bars instead of one.

- 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!


Folded dimensions (inches): Length 29 or 34 (w/front wheel), Width 21.5, Height 10.25. The dimensions of the lightweight TravelScoot mobility scooter are spacious enough to ensure a comfortable ride but compact enough to fit cruise ship doors. It can be folded up for easy carry while keeping everything together; perfect for just about any trip. With a mobility scooter as light and compact as the TravelScoot, airport baggage handlers will love you! Note: Both the Escape and Cruiser share the same dimensions. Although the wheel and motor size differ, the frame is the same.


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!


The TravelScoot comes with the upgraded wide front wheel which improves overall performance while traversing uneven or rough terrain. Our wide front wheel will greatly help with navigation through older streets that are not well maintained. If the front wheel gets damaged, don't worry. It can be easily swapped out with the click of a button at a fraction of the cost to repair and replace a front-wheel drive-motor. 

Solid rubber tires mean no more flats! No matter the terrain you are traveling over, you'll never have to worry about the tires. TravelScoot's tires are also wider than its competitors to make traveling on rough terrain easier. Traversing grass, hard-packed gravel, and uneven ground is now doable.

Tire sizes

Front 7.87 x 2.95

Left 7.32 x 2.75

Right 7.32 x 2.6


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 speed of the Escape is 4.7 mph by default (can be lowered to 3.2 or raised to 5.2 mph) Whether at the car show, exploring nature trails, or touring the city, you can go the speed you need.


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 the TravelScoot 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.

Warranty Information

EXPRESS WARRANTY: Each TravelScoot is covered by our 2-year warranty starting from the delivery date. The warranty does not cover normal wear-and-tear or use by persons weighing more than 350 lbs. This limited warranty is the sole warranty for the TravelScoot. The only uses for the TravelScoot are described in the manual. WARRANTY TERMS: The limited warranty extends only to the original owner and is not transferable. This limited warranty covers all parts of the TravelScoot and is effective under the following conditions: The product is completely and correctly assembled. The product is used under normal conditions and for its intended purpose. The product receives all necessary maintenance and adjustments. The TravelScoot electric mobility scooter is designed for general transportation and recreational use only. This limited warranty does not cover normal wear and tear, normal maintenance items, nor any damage, failure, or loss caused by improper assembly, maintenance, adjustment, storage, or use of the TravelScoot. This limited warranty is void if the product is ever (a) used in any manner contrary to the instructions in the Owner’s Manual, (b) modified in any way, (c) ridden by more than one person at a time, (d) the unit is used for commercial purposes (rental, public use, etc.), (e) or operated with a battery or charger not supplied by TravelScoot. TravelScoot USA Inc. is not liable for incidental or consequential loss nor damage, due directly or indirectly, from the use of this product. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this may not apply to you. The TravelScoot is warranted for two years from the date of delivery. The manufacturer will replace, without charge to you, any component found to be defective within the warranty period. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from State to State. BATTERY WARRANTY: Full replacement for the first 12 months. Afterwards, the customer pays 8.33% of the new price value for each of the 12 months remaining thereafter. TravelScoot USA Inc. will pay for warranty-related shipping within the first 60 days after delivery of the original purchase, provided the return shipment is packed in the original packaging. We strongly recommend that you retain the original shipping box for the TravelScoot at least for the duration of the warranty period. BALANCE: The TravelScoot was designed for individuals who can walk unaided but experience walking and/or standing fatigue or discomfort. As a three-wheeled device, it is expected that riders are able to sit upright and maneuver around corners at safe speeds. Acceleration into corners, turning at high speeds, or turning on steep inclines may cause the TravelScoot to tip over. If this occurs, riders should be able to put their feet down to steady the scooter. If you are unable to do any of the actions above safely, the TravelScoot may not be right for you. BRAKES: The TravelScoot is equipped with one or two hand brakes and does not have automatic safety brakes. Customers should possess a moderate level of hand strength to use the brakes. INCLINES: RETURN POLICY: The TravelScoot handles inclines better than any mobility scooter in its class. It is necessary that when approaching an incline that the rider leans forward initially as to avoid tipping backwards. All returns must be made within 14 days of delivery and only in "new" condition in the original packaging. The customer is responsible for all shipping costs* including incidental shipping damage caused by improper packing. All returns are subject to a 10% restocking fee. *Returns on scooters will be assessed a $100 return charge. This return policy takes effect once an order has been processed and shipped (creation of a shipping label or pick-up order constitutes shipping). Separately or additionally purchased batteries cannot be returned individually for a refund unless included in an order including a scooter.

    Made my world bigger

    Posted by Diane on 25th Mar 2024

    I bought the TravelScoot because I could no longer lift my former "lightweight" scooter (75lbs) and my compact car won't accommodate a hitch mounted carrier. Even with 2 very arthritic knees, an arthritic shoulder, and mild heart failure I have no trouble getting this scooter in and out of the back of my car. I use it at work every day and since it's so easy to take along I get out more too. Thanks so much!

    Awesome Design

    Posted by Holly Carson on 21st Mar 2024

    The TS Escape has been designed with careful planning to create the best, most lightweight scooter. It is is giving me freedom to keep up with my family on vacations and outings. Its compact design fits the narrow spaces that are often challenging for bulkier scooters. I love how I can break it down and set it up by myself with my one handed disability. It was so easy that I even assembled it out if the box one handed!

    Travelscoot Escape

    Posted by Don Dail on 3rd Dec 2023

    Bought this last year for my wife. She loves it. Went on a cruise last spring and it worked great and getting into the stateroom was a cinch because of its width. I also like that is so lightweight and compact, that we are able to get it in and out of our small SUV.

    Great for my congregation

    Posted by Fred Pinkerton on 20th Oct 2023

    We use this ultra lightweight mobility scooter for individuals at my congregation. We have an outdoor assembly that can be limited for some of our parishioners. The Escape is not only very light weight, but it handles the grass well. We're very happy with our purchase.

    New Escape Scooter

    Posted by Tigger on 27th Sep 2023

    I received my scooter yesterday, had no problem putting together myself. Today I rode it around the driveway to get used to it. It was very easy to maneuver. I will be bringing to a Winery this weekend to see how it goes through the vineyards.

    TravelScoot escape

    Posted by Jim Lashley on 23rd Sep 2023

    Is it 100% PERFECT? No. But there are many accessories offered by TravelScoot and tons of good advice and ideas on Facebook sites to adapt and improvise whatever minor issue you may have. Is the seat too hard? I had some upholstery foam left over and attached it to the seat. Absolutely no problems with the motor, battery, brakes etc the important mechanisms. You should practice driving it in an empty parking lot, going up and down slopes or in and out narrow doorways.
