Pride Go Go Elite Traveller 4 Mobility Scooter Review

5/5

Read my honest review on one of the best 4 wheel mobility scooters on the market !

I was lucky enough to review this 4 wheel mobility aid recently with a patient I had been treating and I can honestly say that the Go Go Elite Traveller is a compact, lightweight and exceptionally stable mobility scooter from Pride Mobility.
Packed with up-to-date features it offers unbeatable safety and comfort for a great way to travel !

Main Features

  • 300Ib weight capacity
  • Easily disassembles into 5 lightweight pieces for easy transport and storage.
  • Has a front frame mounted seat post
  • Non-scuffing black tyres
  • Has removable footboard basket for additional storage
  • Large front basket with good storage
  • Able to charge the battery pack either on-board or off-board with dual voltage charger
  • Battery charge port located on the tiller
  • Has 2 sets of red and blue coloured shrouds that are easily changeable

Pros ( What I liked about it )

  • Really like the comfortable seat with arm support which really feels supportive
  • The frame can be separated with one hand due to the clever auto-latching lock up system
  • Easy to lift into the car – the heaviest part of the scooter weighs 14Kg (34 Ibs)
  • Battery is quick and simple to remove
  • Height adjustable swivel seat is easy to operate – great for getting on and off the scooter
  • Transferring on and off the chair is quick and simple with the flip up armrests
  • Lots of space to carry things with the spacious basket
  • The solid 9″ wheels make it feel really sturdy and substantial when out and about, even in uneven surfaces
  • I like the adjustable headlight – it really makes a difference when travelling outside

Cons ( What I didn't like about it )

  • There’s not a lot to not like about the Pride Go Go Elite…….yes there are cheaper similar models available but they don’t offer anywhere near the same features.

  • Some people with low back problems may find the seat a little uncomfortable after a while, but a small cushion or back support would solve the problem.

‘Fantastic little scooter. Would recommend this model to anyone. Breaks down into 4 different parts & fits neatly into the boot of my Vauxhall Mokka.’
‘My wife loves her scooter she is able to get out and about herself now, great for popping up to the town (which is a mile away).We have not had any problems with this mobility scooter.

Verdict

The Pride Go Go Elite Traveller 4 lightweight mobility scooter offers excellent manoeuvrability, comfort and style at an affordable price.

It has a great compact design that is only 19″ wide, which is great trying to negotiate tight narrow hallways, and access in and out of buildings.

This mobility scooter feels really stable, but the fact it can be quickly disassembled and transported is a big plus. 

A maximum range of 10 miles means that you won’t have to worry about constantly recharging the battery.

It’s easy to control and has a variable speed, so if you’re worried about going too fast, or are in a crowded area with lots of people around, you can turn the speed right down.

The hand controls are pressure sensitive, so you can be on the highest speed on the dial, but still go slowly by only lightly holding the lever down, which definitely helps you.

All in all the Pride Go Go Elite Traveller 4 Mobility Scooter performs really well  !

    Very detailed review, you covered everything about this mobility scooter. The great feature of this scooter that battery lasts really long and that heaviest part weighs just 14 kg, which means that it is easy to carry this scooter around in the car. It is very helpful that you have added youtube video, I really like watching videos of products I would like to buy. Pros and cons are very helpful too, and it seems that this scooter has a lot more pros and is a great product. Very good article and thank you for sharing this review with us.

    Hi Mark,

    Thanks for providing this review. I’m beginning to look in to mobility scooters as my father is likely to need one following a fairly serious op he’s scheduled to have. Till now the only brand I was aware of is the rascal, any idea how these compare and do you know if they are available in the UK?

      Hi Nathan,
      Thanks for your comments. Rascal Mobility Scooters are manufactured by Electric Mobility founded back in 1984. With a range of 16 models from easily dismantled car transportable boot scooters to the top of the range 8 MPH large modern scooters, they are available to buy in the UK. The Rascal compares well against the Pride Go Go Elite 4 Wheel Mobility Scooter with similar models and products. They tend to be a bit more expensive. Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to contact me again if you need any further information.
