Mobility Scooter Advice

Choosing the right mobility scooter for you

When buying your mobility scooter, you should always keep in mind where you intend to use it. If it’s around shopping centres, high streets or if you need your mobility scooter to be portable, then a product that can be broken down into easy-to-manage parts with a speed of around 4 mph may be suitable. The Little Star, Little Gem 2, Pearl and Sapphire 2 are all very easy to transport and have excellent manoeuvrability making using them hassle free.

Alternatively, if you prefer your mobility scooter to be able to cope with longer journeys without the need of secondary transport, then a mobile scooter with 6-8mph with lights and indicators may be more suitable for you. The Sterling S425, S700, Elite2XS and Elite2Plus can all travel up to an impressive speed of 8mph, meaning you can travel further and faster independently.

Please remember, this is a guide only. You should always seek the professional advice of an experienced Sterling scooter dealership before buying. Mobility scooters are medical devices and should be assessed accordingly.

Mobility scooter classifications

Mobility scooters are legally classed into two distinct categories. To help you make an informed decision, we‘ve highlighted which category each of our disability scooters belongs to and provided an explanation of the two categories.

Class 2 Mobility Scooters 

These are mobile scooters that are suited for use on high streets and footpaths. They tend to have a narrower profile and a tighter turning circle (to help with maneuverability). You can legally travel up to 6.4kph (4mph) on public pavements and anywhere you‘re allowed to travel on foot if it is safe to do so. Class 2 mobility scooters do not have lights and indicators and are not allowed on the road. The Sterling range of Class 2 mobility scooters includes the Little Star, Little Gem2, Pearl, Sapphire 2 and S400.

If you‘re looking for a scooter that‘s extremely lightweight and easy to transport, whilst still having great performance and range, then the Sterling Little Star, our lightest scooter, could be the perfect choice. Weighing just 35kg with batteries, the compact Little Star is easy to lift and transport in your car. Specifically designed to be highly manoeuvrable with a tight turning circle, the Little Star is ideal for navigating around the home and shopping centres. With a top speed of 4mph and a range of 8 miles, the Little Star is perfect for getting out and about.

If you want an electric scooter that‘s highly compact with a portable base for easy transportation, the Sterling Little Gem 2 is easy to dissemble and offers a great range per charge. Quick to re-assemble, with a top speed of 4mph and a range of 10 miles, the Gem 2 has an infinitely adjustable tiller which can be easily adjusted to suit your driving position at the simple push of a lever.

Or if you‘re looking for a mobility scooter with a higher user weight capacity and range whilst still maintaining that easy portability, the Sterling Pearl offers all these features and more. With a range of 15 miles, a brisk speed of 4mph and a maximum user weight of 136kg. The Pearl can be quickly disassembled and reassembled and is perfect for taking you wherever you need to go.

If you want to use your mobility scooter on lots of trips outdoors as well as being extremely manoeuvrable indoors, the robust Sapphire 2 and S400 are excellent choices. The Sterling Sapphire 2 has the advantage of being portable, separating easily into 4 parts and features powerful batteries giving you a range of 19 miles per charge. With bright LED lights leading your way, it‘s perfect for trips out whatever the weather.

The Sterling S400 can take you even further per charge, with an impressive range of 22 miles. With all-round suspension and great footspace, every adventure you undertake is done in the very upmost comfort. This powerful, luxury scooter is highly manoeuvrable thanks to its compact dimensions, making it ideal for use in shopping centres and busy high streets.
 

Class 3 Mobility Scooters

These are mobile scooters that are appropriate for road use and tend to be larger in size, with a bigger turning circle - but have a greater range and additional comfort to accommodate varied terrain. Class 3 mobility scooters must be fitted with lights, indicators, horn, rear view mirror and rear reflectors in order to be used on the road. The maximum speed you can operate your class 3 mobility scooter at on a road is 12.8kph (8mph). Your mobility scooter must be registered with the DVLA and requires road tax. Sterling has an extensive range of robust mobility scooters perfect for use on roads and all those trips you want to make, these include the Sterling S425, S700, Elite² XS and Elite2Plus.

Specifically designed with comfort in mind for those longer outdoor trips, the Sterling Elite² XS features a unique adjustable rear suspension system. The seat, gas strut tiller and delta handle bar are all adjustable, meaning you can choose the most comfortable driving position that suits you. The state-of-the-art wig-wag control makes operating your Elite² XS very easy, and with a speed of 8mph and range of 27.5 miles, your Elite² XS takes you wherever you want to go.

If you like the features of the Elite² XS but need something slightly more powerful to tackle those more challenging terrains, then the Sterling Elite² Plus is the perfect solution. Offering all the same great features and more, the Elite² Plus boasts larger wheels and a bigger battery, tackling those more tricky obstacles with ease.

The Sterling S400 and S700 are also perfect mobility scooters for the great outdoors. The Sterling S425‘s large pneumatic wheels and all round suspension system means taking kerbs and driving over rough terrain is done smoothly and in maximum comfort. With its bright LED lights and intuitive control making it simple to drive, the S425 provides an enjoyable ride in total safety.

Or if you‘re looking for the very highest level of driving performance and range an outdoor mobility scooter can offer, the Sterling S700 is the perfect choice. The S700 boasts an impressive range of 34 miles per charge, making distance no limit. With robust 33cm tyres and tackling gradients of up to 10 degrees, the S700 easily glides through even the toughest of terrains.
