The 5 wheel Quingo advantage

5 wheels are more comfortable than 4, are more stable than 3

The 3 Wheel Mobility Scooter

In the early days, there were just 3 wheeled scooters that were very simple in design. On the up side they were short, lightweight and manoeuvrable in restricted areas, on the down side they could be dangerously unstable when in inexperienced hands or on uneven terrain. This could potentially lead to vehicles tipping and to serious injury. This instability also made users feel less confident in the ability of the scooter to transport them safely.

The 4 Wheel Mobility Scooter

The industry then turned its attention to the 4 wheeled scooter which addresses many of the stability issues but in doing so created two new major disadvantages. The first was restricted leg space and poor posture caused by the vehicle’s layout. The second was the increased length of the vehicle inherent in all 4 wheelers, which in turn meant a poor turning circle, poor weight distribution and restricted manoeuvrability. And until recently, those were your only options.

The 5 Wheel Mobility Scooter

(AVC) Advanced Vehicle Concepts took up the challenge to solve these long standing issues and design a new breed of mobility scooter that would perform beyond these limitations. Introducing the world’s first true 5 wheel scooters with Quintell Technology. This offers genuine stability and safety benefits for users while maintaining agility. The unique ergonomic anatomical driving position achieved using Quintell™ technologies assures a natural posture and comfortable ride.

Only a Quingo mobility scooter offers it’s unique 5 wheel stability system which means a better turning circle without compromising agility. It means superior control on inclines and kerbs, Quingo’s forward sitting position means safer weight distribution for hills and bumps. Even in extreme situations Quingo’s active tri-wheel steering easily navigates and stabilises your scooter on uneven gradients smoothly and safely.
