An Overview of the Buzzaround Carry On Folding Scooter by Golden Technologies
Given the design parameters of the Buzzaround Carry On Folding Scooter, these are good numbers, although the smallish seat means that this isn’t a scooter you’ll be wanting to spend all day in. It’s fine for short jaunts, but if you plan to fly somewhere and then spend an entire day in your scooter, you’re bound to be fairly uncomfortable in this one.
Two of the big contributors to the weight of the scooter are the motors and the batteries. This scooter has a relatively small motor, and it’s got a correspondingly slow speed. At 3.6 miles an hour maximum, you won’t get where you want to go quickly in this scooter, so if you’re looking for something speedy, you’ll have to look elsewhere. As long as you’re not in a great rush, you’ll be fine.
Adjustability and Comfort
Most of Golden’s products are incredibly adjustable. This one, however, is the exception to that. There are a few adjustment options, but they’ve been kept to a minimum. The seat is fixed in its position and sits 19.5” from the scooter’s deck, and this model has no headrest.
Similarly, the nominally padded armrests are fixed in their positions, but they do flip back for easy transfers into and out of the scooter.
On the plus side, the angle of the steering tiller can be adjusted to taste, which gives you at least some means of tweaking the scooter to increase comfort.
