A mobility device gives the user independence and freedom. How much freedom you take is up to you.

The Go-Go Folding Scooter 4-Wheel is made to go. You’ll zip from spot to spot at four miles per hour, navigating tight spaces with the 32-inch turning radius.

When it’s time to go further, the scooter simply folds down for transport in a car, bus, ship or plane.

Learn more about the many features our engineers worked into the Go-Go Folding Scooter gives you independence that knows no bounds.

1. The Lithium Battery Advantage

The Go-Go Folding Scooter has the option to upgrade to lithium-ion batteries. The standard sealed lead acid battery gets you 9.3 miles per charge, where the lithium battery will keep you going for up to 13 miles.

Lithium batteries last longer and weigh considerably less than sealed lead acid batteries. Choosing a lithium battery will lighten your load, especially if you plan to travel a lot. 

2. FAA Compliant

To fly with a mobility scooter, you must follow Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations.

Pride Mobility Scooters use either sealed lead acid batteries or lithium-ion batteries. While there is no danger of spills or leaks, scooters that use SLA batteries need to be stored as cargo.

If space allows, devices with lithium batteries can be stored in the passenger cabin.

Spare lithium batteries are allowed in carry-on baggage as long as they do not exceed 160 watt hours.

Your airline may have additional requirements for flying with a mobility scooter. It’s a good idea to call your airline a few days in advance to clear up any questions and let them know you’re bringing a device. This way, the day of the flight you’ll be prepared.
