Komfi Rider Marlin Mobility Scooter Review

Navigating daily life should be as easy and comfortable as possible, which is why the A6 Mobility Shop team believes wholeheartedly in the value of mobility scooters. It’s our job to help you find a solution that works best for your needs and lifestyle.

The Komfi Rider Marlin mobility scooter is a unique blend of size and portability. This is considered a larger boot mobility scooter (i.e. disassembles to fit in a car boot) but is lightweight and portable thanks to an aluminium frame and lithium battery pack. 

If you’re looking for a feature-rich yet portable large boot mobility scooter, the Komfi Rider Marlin might be a good fit for you. Who is the Marlin best suited for, and does it deliver on its promises? We take a closer look at the company behind the Marlin and review the scooter’s performance, specs, and features.

 

Introducing Komfi-Rider and Its Revolutionary Marlin

Komfi-Rider is a UK-based brand that has been leading the way in quality, innovative mobility products since 2006. The company is committed to making life simpler and more enjoyable, a driving value that can be seen in the Marlin’s design and functionality.

The Marlin combines exceptional power and range in a lightweight, easy-to-disassemble package. This boot scooter is ideal for those prioritising freedom of movement and no-fuss transportation.

Komfi Rider Marlin Highlights: Big Features in a Compact Design

The Marlin boasts several features that make it an excellent choice for many users. Here’s a closer look at some of its most notable aspects:

Ultra-Lightweight, Portable Design

The Marlin is a large boot scooter with plenty of foot room and a spacious seat. Despite it’s size, this scooter is lightweight and has an easy-to-transport design. It is constructed from ultra-lightweight, aircraft-grade aluminium, and its heaviest single part weighs less than 12kg. The total weight comes in at only 35kg, making it one of the lightest in the category of large boot scooters. 

This, combined with its easy disassembly into several parts, makes the Marlin perfect for users needing a portable scooter for transportation in a car boot or on public transport.

Exceptional Power and Range

We’re thoroughly impressed with the Marlin’s generous travel range. You can choose between a 21Ah or a 34Ah battery. The former offers a range of up to 20 miles (32 km) on a single charge, while the ‘Epic’ 34Ah option provides an impressive range of up to 30 miles (48km). Both versions are high-capacity, lightweight lithium battery packs for optimal performance and easy removal while further adding to the scooter’s portability.

Supreme Scooter Comfort

It’s not helpful if you can travel long distances but not in total comfort. The Marlin has a deep foam, adjustable swivel seat, providing the perfect fit. Adjustable armrests can also be positioned for optimal comfort and support. Moreover, Komfi-Rider uses a unique shallow floor plate to maximise legroom, ensuring comfortable rides even for taller users. 

Stability and Safety

The Marlin is designed to be safe and stable, with a maximum weight capacity of 21 stone (135kg) and a climbing gradient of up to 6 degrees. Built for real-world conditions, this 4-mph pavement scooter boasts impressive 230mm-diameter wheels to better navigate rougher terrain. Paired with full front and rear suspension, you’ll undoubtedly enjoy a reliably smooth and stable ride.

The scooter also comes with a number of safety features, including:

  • A powerful front LED light for improved visibility in low-light conditions
  • The option of puncture-proof tyres that eliminate the risk of flats 
  • A delta handlebar providing a comfortable and secure grip
  • An automatic electromagnetic brake for safe and smooth stopping

Who Stands to Gain the Most from the Marlin?

The main benefit of the Marlin is its weight to size ratio. The Marlin is lightweight and portable despite its larger size. This model is therefore an excellent choice for drivers who want a more spacious boot scooter or taller individuals who may struggle to find a portable scooter that comfortably accommodates their height. The Marlin will easily fit in most car boots and is a versatile choice because of its long travel range and smooth handling, even over bumpy paths.
