The Three Lightweights  

We’re taking a closer look at our three most popular lightweight mobility scooters; A standard SupaScoota, Di Blasi R30 and the Liteway 4 Plus. All three are extremely popular and have all been designed to be as light and portable as possible without sacrificing features or safety. We've compared some of their features and specifications.

The SupaScoota is a good all-rounder. It’s quick to assemble and disassemble, has a good maximum range and separates into just two pieces. It’s unique “No frills” design means there is no unnecessary plastic to break and no body work. Just a simple yet incredibly sturdy scooter that's proved extremely popular. 

The Di Blasi R30 is the quickest off the mark, taking only 6 seconds to automatically fold or unfold. It’s the lightest of the three scooters and has been designed to be as portable as possible. It is by far the easiest to get in and out of a car boot and its automatic folding ability is guaranteed to turn a few heads. Its wide accessible seat and generous legroom makes  suitable for users of (almost) all shapes, sizes and circumstances.

The Liteway 4 Plus is the largest of these scooters and thus offers the most stable ride. It boasts almost double the maximum user capacity of the standard SupaScoota. It does take slightly longer to assemble and although it doesn’t require any tools, there’s a lot more assembly required. 

As you can see there is no clear winner or loser. Each scooter fulfils its purpose brilliantly whilst standing out in at least one particular area. It is simply a matter of determining which one is most suitable for your needs. We conduct a tailored medical assessment on all of our customers to assess which equipment is best suited for your needs.
