Despite being slightly more expensive than similar products on the marker, the Pilot 2310 is worth the investment as it comes with features unseen at other mobility scooters.
One of the hardest things to deal with when getting older is the fact that your body is no longer as strong as it used to be. Furthermore, not only is this a physical challenge, but it is also a psychological challenge. It can be very difficult to admit that you are no longer as strong as it used to be. In this situation, you have two choices: you either isolate yourself from the world and build walls around your comfort zone or you admit that you need help and you try to make the best of your life. A mobility scooter can be a life changer for a person who can’t walk, who struggles to walk or who gets very tired after only a few steps. It can help you take care of yourself so that you don’t have to be a burden for your family. It can also help you keep in touch with friends and go outdoors more often. Furthermore, the energy that you used to use for struggling to walk can now be channeled towards more productive activities. Pilot 2310 is considered to be one of the best mobility scooters on the market. It may be more expensive than similar products on the market but it comes with numerous benefits meant to improve your everyday life while also offering a high level of safety.
Facilities and comfort
This scooter may cost more than similar products but it is equipped with features unseen at other mobility scooters. It is designed to improve your life as much as possible. Its most interesting features are the comfort features. Basically, the Captain’s chairs are adjustable from all points of view. This mobility scooter is ideal for both indoor and outdoor use. The famous Captain’s seats feature deep contoured cushions that offer an ideal support and a high level of comfort. The seats are also highly durable and their height can be adjusted according to the user’s needs. This mobility scooter also features a seat slide which allows the users to also move the chairs forward and backward.The padded armrests are also very comfortable and allow for easy access and transfer. The armrests can also be adjusted in width and height and they can ever be removed. Combine all these comfort features with the adjustable height headrest and you’ve got yourself a cozy seat where you actually feel like a captain. For optimal convenience, the scooter features a front basket which is big enough to carry all of the user’s necessities.
Pilot 2310 has a maximum range of 22 miles and a 350 lb. weight capacity. The seats feature a fold down backrest that can be inclined up to 25 degrees. The seats’ height can also be adjusted from 20 inches to 23 inches. The scooter also features a delta tiller which the users can use in order to place the controls at the most convenient angle. The scooter is available in two color choices: blue and burgundy. The scooter weights 198 pounds and has the following dimensions:55 x 26 x 30 inches. The scooter is powered by a 24V x 350W x 4200 rpm motor and it requires two 12V x 35AH (U1) batteries. The scooter has a top speed of 6 mph. As far as the battery’s lifespan goes, the 12V x 35AH (U1) batteries offer sufficient power for as much as 22 miles. Considering the fact that most scooters feature batteries with a maximum range of 10-15 miles, we consider the Pilot 2310 to be a value investment.
Ease of use
Pilot 2310 has a very compact design which will allow the users to comfortably use it even in tight environments. Compared with other three wheel scooters and even with larger models, this scooter has a smaller wheelbase which gives the pilot more maneuverability over the vehicle.

The standard safety package includes a horn, a headlight, turn signals and dual rear view mirrors, something that we rarely see in mobility scooters. The 350 weight capacity safety package includes only rear view mirrors, turn signals and a headlight. A good safety feature which is independent from the safety packages is the anti-tip system on the wheels. Furthermore, the scooter also comes with hand operated drum brake, ideal for extra-quick stops. These safety features will make it a lot easier and safer to use the scooter outdoors.
