Design: 5/5

This is a well-made scooter, as you would except from a long established brand like Shoprider. It is clearly built with safety and usability being of optimum importance, whilst it delivers a comfortable journey. The charging point is easily accessible on the tiller (steering column) and it is easily charged via a standard three point plug. It has a storage basket at the front but differs from the Cadiz in that it doesn’t have any storage in the seat. It also has smaller wheels than the Cadiz, but it still very comfortable to ride on.

Comfort: 5/5

This is a comfortable mobility scooter with an adjustable seat and steering column as well as a swivel seat operation. The back does not adjust as it does with the Cadiz but the position of the armrests can be altered. The footrest over the wheel adds to the comfort and the pneumatic wheels make the ride impressively smooth.
