EXETER, PA – The new iRIDE™ Scooter from Pride Mobility Products® is now available.
The iRIDE combines an aluminum frame, lithium batteries and brushless motors to create an ultra-lightweight design for easy travel. It offers quiet operation and a new electrical system that works with brushless motor technology. The scooter has a height-adjustable, removable seat with a foldable tiller and includes an air-safe lithium-ion battery pack.
Other features include a digital LCD display, a manual hand brake, a supplemental foot brake, a twist grip throttle, an easy-to-grip tiller adjustment knob, an on/off switch and five color options.
“Combining an aluminum frame, lithium batteries and brushless motors on a single unit was new territory for us, but we got the job done and created a product that is truly unique,” said Adam Fuller, Director of Pride Mobility Research and Development. “Pride consumers deserve to have a portable scooter that matches their active lifestyles and features exciting colors, while delivering more stability than a simple two-wheel scooter. The iRIDE is a mobility aid that will keep people active, but without a medical look.”
Renae Storie, Vice President of Pride Mobility, says the iRIDE is unlike any scooter Pride has ever made.
“The iRIDE isn’t what most people visualize when they picture a mobility scooter,” Storie said. “It is not bulky or heavy and appears to be somewhat like a commuter scooter. It has a sleek, modern, extremely lightweight design that compliments but does not stand out. Weighing just over 46 pounds and having air-safe lithium ion batteries, the iRIDE can go almost anywhere. We’ve already had a fantastic response to this product before it even launched and anticipate it to become a popular retail choice.”
