When it comes to scooters, there are different models that will cater to your specific needs. There is a scooter for every budget and application.
The scooter's body is usually considered the base unit. Frame options include steel, aluminum or a composite, and fiberglass or composite floor to support the feet. Scooters are available for indoor or outdoor use. Maneuverability, wheelbase size, ground clearance, turning radius and overall dimensions are the determining factors for indoor or outdoor use.
Travel Scooters dissemble into four pieces for transport in the trunk of most cars. Compact and easy to lift, sealed batteries make them airline safe. However, these are not recommended for people taller than 5' 10" or who weight more than 300 pounds.
Three-wheeled Scooters offer a bit more maneuverability. Available features such as swivel seats, adjustable tiller range, adjustable seat heights and sliding seat depths will vary according to make and model.
Four-wheeled Scooters have high ground clearance and bigger tires make these models a good choice for outdoor terrain. Because of the wide turning radius, larger models are not a good choice for indoor use.
Heavy-duty Scooters are available in three- and four-wheeled models. These are designed for individuals who weigh up to 500 pounds.
