After analyzing data on nearly 200 products from total weight to price to comfort and safety features, Forbes Health has named Golden’s BuzzAround CarryOn scooter on their list of Best Lightweight Mobility Scooters of 2022. 

In an increasingly competitive market for mobility aids that make movement possible for people who have trouble walking but still want to travel, work and visit friends freely, Golden’s vision is to build the most innovative and comfortable products that put you and your family’s lives in motion.

“Among the many brands and models of lightweight mobility scooters available, it’s an honor to have our BuzzAround CarryOn folding scooter reviewed and backed by Forbes as a stand-out in this market,” said Rich Golden, CEO of Golden Technologies. “It’s one of the hottest selling scooters due to its incredible transportability. Golden is known for making advances in technology and innovation in driving weight out of a scooter while increasing strength, weight capacity, and range, all while keeping a mobility aid portable, good-looking, and fun to drive. The new GB120 BuzzAround CarryOn scooter is a great example of this type of product focus,” he added.

According to Forbes, the BuzzAround CarryOn scooter made the cut due to its inclusion of both front and rear lighting packages, which many scooters lack, the 18-mile travel range with its long-distance battery, and the four inches of ground clearance, which is impressive for a portable scooter. Their review also stated that the CarryOn does offer more generous padding than other travel scooters and a more ergonomic seat shape and higher-reaching backrest than many of its competitors, plus flip-up armrests provide useful flexibility and comfort as well.

The BuzzAround CarryOn mobility scooter is small in stature and big on fun. The super portable, sporty scooter takes customers where they want to go in comfort and style. It features an infinitely adjustable tiller, full front and rear lighting, and a 300 lb. weight capacity. It also features a basket for easy storage and a convenient drink holder on the tiller. The scooter disassembles into two pieces and is extremely easy to load into a car or SUV. The heaviest piece is just 47.5 lbs.

The CarryOn scooter offers long-range coverage up to 18 miles with a lithium-ion battery pack. The optional airline-friendly lithium-ion battery is sold separately with a travel case and is capable of charging a smartphone or tablet while in flight. The scooter is designed to fit in the smallest compartments at only 12 inches high when folded without the seat, perfect for under-bed storage on a cruise ship.
