Larger and sturdier than a boot scooter, the Leo offers stability and safety, while its large pneumatic wheels provide improved performance over the uneven pavements that are often encountered. High-capacity 36 Ah batteries give it an unbeatable range of over 23 miles, far more than that offered by other pavement scooters. This combines with the ample storage options - including a lockable front box and additional rear basket, to make it the perfect scooter for regaining your independence. Integral splash-protection ensures reliable performance even in bad weather conditions.
A seat-suspension module can be added to improve comfort, while unusually for a scooter, the Leo can be fitted with a front windscreen to offer additional protection for the driver. The delta tiller is comfortable to use, and can be adjusted to the required angle, allowing it to cater to drivers of all sizes. Lights are fitted as standard to ensure visibility.
The Leo is available in red, blue and silver and comes with black non-marking tyres as standard. Both a four wheel and three wheel variant are available - the latter offering more manoeuvrability, although most people opt for the stability of the four-wheel version.
The reliability of the Leo is the reason we picked it for our short-term hire fleet. This is backed up by Invacare's 2 year warranty that is market leading for a medium-sized scooter.
Another model to consider is Pride's relaunched Colt Plus, which offers similar features at a lower price - although with only a 1 year warranty, and less customisation options. Sunrise Medical's S400 features a high-back seat and suspension at a slightly higher price, and with a 1 year warranty.
The Leo is the perfect scooter for those wanting to regain their independence by making longer journeys outdoors on pavements, who also wish to have the ability to carry items or shopping around with them on the scooter.
