Pride Apex Rapid Mobility Scooter Review

Pride Mobility is a well-established name in the world of mobility products. Here at A6 Mobility Shop, we’ve worked closely with the brand for over 20 years and witnessed first hand the difference their scooters can make.

One model that stands out for its versatility and all-around winning performance is the Pride Apex Rapid, a popular and well-loved mobility scooter among our customers. But what exactly sets it apart? Take a closer look with our Pride Apex Rapid review and discover what makes it such a compelling choice.

 

Introducing Pride Mobility’s Apex Rapid Mobility Scooter

Pride Mobility is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mobility products, including mobility scooters and powerchairs. Their mission is clear: to empower people with mobility challenges to live active and independent lives.

The Pride Apex Rapid builds on the success of their popular Go-Go Elite Traveller mobility scooters, with similar features and much more! It has raised the bar for travel scooters, offering impressive comfort and reliability, as well as the convenience and portability typically associated with boot scooters. 

 

The Apex Rapid’s Most Noteworthy Advantages

Here are the features and benefits that stand out most for us:

 

Impressive Suspension for a Smooth Ride

The true star of the Pride Apex Rapid mobility scooter is its revolutionary Comfort-Trac Suspension (CTS). It’s one of the best portable mobility scooters with all-round suspension, offering an exceptionally smooth and comfortable ride. 

The front and rear CTS suspension system effortlessly absorbs shocks and vibrations caused by uneven pavements or bumpy paths. This is a game-changer, especially for smaller boot scooters where jolts are usually more noticeable.

 

Superior Comfort and Support

Comfort and ease of use are at the forefront of the scooter’s design. The thickly padded swivel seat lets you easily get on and off while offering excellent support. The armrests are adjustable to suit your preferred position, helping to improve posture and comfort. Those with limited hand function will appreciate the wraparound delta tiller, which minimises strain and promotes easy steering.

 

Convenience and Customisation

The scooter is all about creating an enjoyable user experience. An easily accessible front storage basket keeps essentials within arm’s reach, while the high level charging port allows you to plug in your scooter without bending down.

We like that Pride has gone beyond just the essentials. The scooter’s sleek and sporty design is complemented by a range of vibrant colour options and optional interchangeable shrouds to add a touch of personality. 

Plus, with a selection of accessories like a USB charger, rear basket, and mobile phone holder, you can truly tailor your ride to suit your needs.

 

Safety and Performance

Safety and reliable performance are crucial when you’re out and about. The Apex Rapid delivers a powerful LED kerb light that ensures visibility in low-light conditions. The front frame-mounted seat post offers a sturdy foundation for extra stability. For added peace of mind, you can equip your scooter with a rearview mirror and safety flag.

As far as boot mobility scooters go, this one certainly doesn’t disappoint in terms of performance. It offers a steady top speed of 4 mph and comfortably accommodates weights up to 136 kg (21 st 6 lbs). While the scooter has a modest range, swapping out the standard 12 Ah batteries for 17 Ah ones is advisable, increasing the maximum range to around 13 miles between charges.

 

Effortless Transport for On-the-Go Lifestyles

Designed for active individuals, the Pride Apex Rapid is remarkably easy to transport. It features feather-touch disassembly, so you can take it apart effortlessly with one hand. The scooter disassembles into five lightweight pieces, with the heaviest component weighing just 17.75 kg. This makes it incredibly convenient for popping in the boot of your car or storing away at home.

 

Who Is the Pride Apex Rapid Best For?

This particular Pride scooter has been a long-standing favourite at A6 Mobility Shop because it offers the complete package: easy portability, enhanced comfort, and a touch of style. For this reason, it’s the type of all-round versatile scooter that’s a great fit for many people. It’s an excellent choice for people who enjoy day trips and outings but also require easy transportation, such as those who frequently use public transport.
