Perfect for just about any trip
The dimensions of the TravelScoot are spacious enough to ensure a comfortable ride but compact enough to fit cruise ship doors. It can be folded up for easy carry while keeping everything together; perfect for just about any trip. With a scooter as light and compact as the TravelScoot, airport baggage handlers will love you!
Our direct-drive hub motor performs substantially better than its competition in two ways. First, it utilizes a rear-wheel-drive system. Due to the rider’s weight being positioned over the drive wheel, the tire has a much better purchase on whatever terrain the rider is traveling over. Front-wheel drive will often spin-out when traveling over uneven terrain or inclines. Second, with the hub motor situated inside the left-rear tire, it is protected from costly damage that occurs primarily to the front wheel. Damage to the front wheel may cost you a new motor, controller, wheel, and fork, in addition to the labor. Not so with the TravelScoot!
Solid rubber tires mean no more flats! No matter the terrain you are traveling over, you’ll never have to worry about the tires. The TravelScoot tires are also wider making traveling on rough terrain easier. Traversing dry grass, hard-packed gravel, and uneven ground is now doable.
Front 7.87 x 2.95
Left 7.32 x 2.75
Right 7.32 x 2.6
WIDE FRONT WHEEL
The TravelScoot comes with the upgraded wide front wheel which improves overall performance while traversing uneven or rough terrain. Our wide front wheel will greatly help with navigation through older streets that are not well maintained. If the front wheel gets damaged, don’t worry. It can be easily swapped out with the click of a button at a fraction of the cost to repair and replace a front-wheel drive-motor.
All current TravelScoot models have forward and reverse. Backup speed is going to be lower for all those tights spots that you may find yourself in such as elevators, dressing rooms, small restrooms, etc. This will provide you with unsurpassed maneuverability.
SINGLE-HINGE FOLDING MECHANISM
Arguably the best feature on the TravelScoot is the locking mechanism. With the new folding design, the TravelScoot will collapse with just a single click of the locking pin. To fold, simply remove the seat by disengaging the quick-release clamp then press the locking pin. All this can be done in mere seconds! Combined with its ultra-light weight and hassle-free folding mechanism, you can load it into your vehicle and be on your way in no time flat.
Everyone has different mobility needs. Some people can’t lift their legs over a bar, some can. Some need to straddle the seat, and others just need to sit down and position themselves to get comfortable. Whatever your needs, we have the seat for you. With our adjustable seat, you can easily remove the backrest with a push of a button, swivel the seat, adjust the height of the cushions, and get the right support you need for your back.
Simply rotate the seat to facilitate getting on and off by releasing an easy-to-use lever clamp. You can adjust the clamp tension to suit your hand strength. A set of simple aluminum bushings, included with every TravelScoot, helps maintain height adjustment when the clamp is released.
The compact TravelScoot backrest gives you the support you need where you need it the most. Just use the provided Allen wrench to adjust it to your preferred comfort level, whether you need support at your shoulder level, mid-spine, or lower lumbar region.
With the quick click of a button, the backrest can be easily removed and transformed into an ergonomic and balanced carrying handle by flipping it upside down. You will love how easily you can now carry your TravelScoot down a flight of stairs. The TravelScoot is already a hit with airline baggage handlers as a result of this handy adaptation.
The controls are simple to use. You don’t need to push multiple buttons to get the speed you want. Just turn the scooter on and engage the twist-grip throttle to accelerate as needed. The speed of the Escape is 4.7 mph (can be modified in-shop to a lower or higher maximum speed). You will have your choice of a maximum speed when checking out in the online cart. Whether at the car show, exploring nature trails, or touring the city, you can go the speed you need.
