The Pride Apex Alumalite is a lightweight 4-wheeled class 2 mobility scooter able to be taken apart into separate pieces to fit most car boots and storage spaces. The Alumalite has an aluminium frame making is lighter than the traditional Pride GoGo's and its lightest piece when disassembled is just 11.2kg. Available in three different colours the Alumalite is compact, sleek and simple to use.
The Apex Alumalite is visually very similar to the standard Pride GoGo car transportable scooters which revolutionised the scooter industry a number of years ago. Designed to be taken apart for ease of storage, travel, and transportation, boot scooters have always had one problem - weight. Whether it was the battery pack containing original AGM Lead Acid batteries or the motor and gearbox assembly the component weights were still too heavy for many to lift easily into a vehicle. The Alumalite has been redesigned to reduce the weights of each component and especially the battery pack, making the whole process quicker and safer.
The Alumalite has 12Ah Lithium batteries providing a real world range of approximately 6-8 miles on a full charge and comes with a 2Amp intelligent charger. Running on 8" solid tyres the Alumalite, like most other boot scooters, does not have a large ground clearance and care should be taken when crossing over raised pavements or non-dropped kerbs.
With a maximum user weight of 120kg (18 stone) the Alumalite is strong and robust but please note the maximum range available will decrease for heavier users or if the machine is being used on steep inclines.
