But what really makes the So Lite so special?

But before we dive into the details, let’s first take a look at what kind of driving scenarios the So Lite Scooter is designed for.

Typical Driving Scenarios For So Lite Scooter Users

Going on a journey can be tough, especially for those who use mobility scooters. If you don’t use a scooter, you must factor in your own strength for undertaking the journey. For spring chickens, this isn’t much of a challenge… but when you’ve lived a long life, or you’ve experienced physical challenges that make it difficult for you to move around… distance and time walking play a major role in your decision to go somewhere or not.

But with the So Lite lightweight folding mobility scooter, it's never been easier to get around town. 

Whether it's a quick trip to the grocery store, a day at the mall, or visiting friends and family, this mobility scooter is perfect for any typical driving scenario. 

And when it's time to hit the road, the scooter's easy-to-fold design makes it a breeze to place in your car.

Of course, it does have its limitations.

As an example, you won’t be driving this model far into the forests of America. This model is designed for driving over pavement and other flat surfaces.

Also, with no option for an overhead canopy… rain and snow can make your journey unpleasant (at least while you are outside, once inside you’ll be fine).

Then there is the range factor. As a lightweight mobility scooter, it doesn’t have the same range as a large all-terrain scooter. If you plan on driving for 10+ miles every day… you will need a different model.

So, before you decide if the So Lite Scooter is the right choice for you, think about how you will use this mobility scooter. Also factor in if you plan on driving with your scooter to different locations before unfolding it for use. This nifty little scooter can fit in most cars, whereas bigger mobility scooter models would require a bigger van or even a scooter lift.

Once you’ve envisioned all of the situations you plan on using your mobility scooter in, then it’s time to look at the features of the So Lite Scooter and determine if they meet your needs and wants.
