TGA Zest Mobility Scooter
The Zest is a lightweight boot scooter from TGA, designed to be easily dismantled and transported in the back of a car. It offers enhanced comfort with modern features such as full suspension, which remains rare on such small scooters.
Available with a choice of batteries, the Zest comes as standard with 12 Ah batteries that provide a range of up to 8 miles. While this may appear disappointing compared to the 10-12 mile ranges advertised by other manufacturers for scooters with similar batteries, one has to bear in mind that all manufacturers calculate their ranges differently, and that the battery size itself is the better indicator of range. An upgrade to larger 22 Ah batteries is on offer, with a much longer range of 14 miles - although this will significantly increase the weight that has to be lifted, the battery box being 4 kg heavier.
Comfort is key to the Zest, with suspension on both front and rear wheels, giving you a cushioning to the ride found on few other small scooters. The adjustable seat is well padded, and can be rotated to enable easy transfer to and from the seat. Curved delta handlebars come as standard, as well as lightweight thumb controls. It also boasts a weight capacity of 21.5 stone.
Easy to dismantle, the Zest can be taken apart into five different pieces, allowing it to be easily lifted into a car boot. This allows you to take your scooter with you, ideal for holidays, shopping, and trips out and about.
Available in a choice of six stylish colours - red, blue, green, orange, white and silver, the Zest also comes as standard with a headlight to ensure visibility. The Zest also has a market-leading two year warranty.
The Zest is an impressive scooter, ideal for those that need to transport one between locations, but who want additional comfort over the somewhat "rattly" traditional models. Its chief competitor is Pride's Apex Rapid, which broke new ground as the first boot scooter to feature full suspension. The Apex Rapid is notably cheaper (and with larger batteries as standard), has a more modern appearance, and an impressive track record, although the Zest has the advantage of a longer warranty.
