I am a new user of mobility scooters having had a stroke. I am currently hiring a Pride Colt Pursuit and would like to buy my own scooter but the market in this country appears to be extremely backward in producing practical but modern scooters. Can ANYONE give me the answer to the most important, simple question “why do 90% of mobility scooters have a ridiculously low ground clearance”? This limits the user to dropped kerbs only (and we all know these are limited!) and the added problem of hitting every bump and raised surface both on and off the road. This wrecks the undercarriage and gives a very rough ride. The very few scooters available with a higher clearance seem to be for 23 stone + people with hugh batteries and greater overall dimensions. The manufacturers throughout the country just say “that’s just the way it is”! Can’t someone out there invent something that gives a decent ground clearance with suspension that doesn’t make us all look as bad as we already feel?!!
