The Apex Finesse Sport is similar in being a medium-sized 8mph scooter but is a much more modern design. It features improved comfort-track suspension on both front and rear wheels, which provides a spongier and smoother ride than the Colt Sport, plus pneumatic tyres to help cushion the ride. The comfort is further enhanced by the high-back adjustable seat with headrest, plus the exceptional legroom on a scooter this size.
The high-torque motor provides a top speed of 8mph, and the compact chassis lets the finesse sport get places that larger scooters cannot. The batteries have been upgraded to high-capacity 50 AH ones for a longer range. Other modern features include the high visibility front and rear LED lights, alloy style 10-inch tyres, and the easy-to-use wraparound delta tiller controls.
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 speed of 8mph.
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.
