                  Why the S245 Pioneer 2 is Probably What You Need

                  With a weight capacity of 300 pounds and a width of only 23 inches, the scooter would be a great choice for average-sized passengers. However, it’s important to mention that this Merits model is highly adjustable and can be modified according to your needs with the intention to provide users with much cozier riding experience.

                  This is only one of the benefits of owning the S245 Pioneer 2. This scooter was designed to make your daily chores simpler and more enjoyable. It’s excellent for outdoor travel and will provide you with a full day of activities, on a single charge.

                  Excellent for outdoor activities

                  This 4-wheel mobility scooter can be used for both indoor and outdoor ride. Considering some of the features, the scooter is excellent for a day filled with activities, such as grocery shopping or taking a trip around the neighborhood with friends and family. These are just some of the features that allow you to do that:

                  4 mph Maximum Speed

                  The maximum speed of this scooter is four miles per hour, which is around the same speed as walking. With this being said, Merits has designed the scooter for people that have difficulties walking on their own and need assistance throughout the day. Whether you use it outdoors or inside an object such as your home, this speed is just fine if you prefer safety and comfort above everything else.

                  Travel Range

                  On a full battery, the scooter can reach a distance of 15 miles. This feature, combined with the speed, implies that the 4-wheel mobility vehicle is very safe, but also quite practical.


                  The four foam filler tires, combined with the two rear anti-tip wheels will keep you protected of tripping the scooter. They are excellent even on grassy terrains, which is perfect if you want a ride around the park.

                  Ground clearance and turning radius

                  With a turning radius of 35 inches and ground clearance of three and a half inches, the scooter is easy to maneuver in traffic. Besides, you won’t have to worry about smaller hills or ramps, as it can climb and travel on steeper inclines.   

                  Front Basket

                  The Merits S245 Pioneer 2 4-wheel mobility scooter was designed with an open basket on the front, excellent to leave your groceries or your personal belonging while you ride your scooter to the wanted destination.

                  Easy to navigate indoors

                  If you favor to use the scooter inside this is also possible and quickly executed. This model is an excellent fit for in-home use. Moreover, it's necessary to note that the S245 Pioneer 2 is 23 inches wide and 16 to 20 inches high. That means you won’t have any problems entering a store with the scooter and navigate around the tight isles while riding your scooter. All in all, it’s easy to operate, it’s very practical and extremely convenient.

                  Comfortable and adjustable to fit various individual users

                  As in many other Merits Health products, the company highlights the comfort feature in the S245 Pioneer 2 as well. With adjustable parts that will make sure you have the coziest ride, this scooter can be changed according to your body type.


                  The seat is not very large, but the fact that it can be adjusted means that you can get extra space if needed. Depending on the type of your body, you can alter the seat and set it higher or lower. This aside, the chair also has a very comfortable design and will make your ride more pleasant.


                  The armrests on the scooter’s seat also leave space for slight adjustments. They can be set higher or lower if needed, and can also be adjusted in width.


                  The tiller of the scooter is flexible as well. If the controls are difficult to reach, you need to find the angle adjustment knob, loosen it, and pull the tiller closer to you. Then, heighten it again to secure that position. If you want more space and the tiller is bumping your knees, you should do the same but this time move the angle further away from you.

                  Compact design for easy disassembling

                  Last but not least, the compact design of the scooter allows for it to be easily disassembled into lighter pieces and then transported to the wanted location.

                  The scooter itself is not very heavy, as it weighs 149 lbs., with the two batteries included. Nevertheless, with the possibility to be dismantled, it will be much easier for you to put it in the trunk of your car and take it with you wherever you go.

                  Moreover, thanks to its sealed lead acid batteries the scooter is airplane-friendly, giving you even more space for travel without feeling like you left something behind.

                  Remember, to disassemble the scooter you need to follow the product manual carefully otherwise you run the risk of damaging it.
