GENERAL
WARNING! Do not operate your new scooter for the first time without completely reading and
understanding this owner’s manual.
Your scooter is a state-of-the-art life-enhancement device designed to increase mobility. Pride provides an
extensive variety of products to best fit the individual needs of the scooter user. Please be aware that the
final selection and purchasing decision regarding the type of scooter to be used is the responsibility of the
scooter user who is capable of making such a decision and his/her healthcare professional (i.e., medical
doctor, physical therapist, etc.).
The contents of this manual are based on the expectation that a mobility device expert has properly fitted
the scooter to the user and has assisted the prescribing healthcare professional and/or the authorised provider
in the instruction process for the use of the product.
There are certain situations, including some medical conditions, where the scooter user will need to practice
operating the scooter in the presence of a trained attendant. A trained attendant can be defined as a family
member or care professional specially trained in assisting a scooter user in various daily living activities.
As you begin using your scooter during daily activities, you will probably encounter situations in which
you will need some practice. Simply take your time and you will soon be in full and confident control as
you maneuver through doorways, on and off elevators, up and down ramps, and over moderate terrain.
MODIFICATIONS
Your scooter has been designed and engineered to provide maximum mobility and utility. A wide range of
accessories is available from your authorised Pride provider to further customize your scooter to better suit
your needs and/or preferences. However, under no circumstances should you modify, add, remove, or
disable any feature, part, or function of your scooter.
WARNING! Do not modify your scooter in any way. Unauthorised modifications may result in
personal injury and/or damage to your scooter.
REMOVABLE PARTS
WARNING! Do not attempt to lift or move a scooter by any of its removable parts. Personal injury
and damage to the scooter may result.

PRE-RIDE SAFETY CHECK
Get to know the feel of your scooter and its capabilities. It is recommended that you perform a safety check
before each use to make sure your scooter operates smoothly and safely. For details on how to perform
these necessary inspections, see X. “Care and Maintenance.”
Perform the following inspections prior to using your scooter:
n Check for proper tyre inflation. Maintain 30-35 psi in each tyre (if equipped with pneumatic tyres).
n Check all electrical connections. Make sure they are tight and not corroded.
n Check all controller connections to the utility tray. Make sure they are secured properly.
n Check the brakes.
n Check battery charge.
TYRE INFLATION
If your scooter is equipped with pneumatic tyres, you should check or have the air pressure checked at least
once a week. Proper inflation pressures will prolong the life of your tyres and help ensure the smooth
operation of your scooter.
WARNING! It is critically important that 30-35 psi tyre pressure be maintained in pneumatic tyres
at all times. Failure to maintain 30-35 psi tyre pressure in pneumatic tyres at all times may result
in catastrophic tyre and/or wheel failure, causing serious personal injury and/or damage to your
scooter.
WARNING! Inflate your scooter drive tyres from a regulated air source with an available pressure
gauge. Minimum air pressure for scooter drive tyres is 30-35 psi. Inflating your tyres from an
unregulated air source could overinflate them, resulting in a burst tyre and/or personal injury.
If you discover a problem, contact your authorised Pride provider for assistance.
WEIGHT LIMITATIONS
Your scooter is rated for a maximum weight limit of 136 kg.
WARNING! Exceeding the weight limit voids your warranty and may result in personal injury and
damage to your scooter. Pride will not be held responsible for injuries and/or property damage
resulting from failure to observe weight limitations.
WARNING! Do not carry passengers on your scooter. Carrying passengers on your scooter may
result in personal injury and/or property damage.
INCLINE INFORMATION
More and more buildings have ramps with specified percents of inclination, designed for easy and safe
access. Some ramps may have turning switchbacks (180-degree turns) that require you to have good
cornering skills on your scooter.
n Proceed with extreme caution as you approach the downgrade of a ramp or other incline.
n Take wide swings with your scooter’s front wheels around any tight corners. If you do that, the scooter’s
rear wheels will follow a wide arc, not cut the corner short, and not bump into or get hung up on any
railing corners.
n When driving down a ramp, keep the scooter’s speed adjustment set to the slowest speed setting to
ensure a safely controlled descent. See IV. “Your Zoom.”
n Avoid sudden stops and starts.
Zoom
7
I I .
S A F E T Y
When climbing an incline, try to keep your scooter moving. If you must stop, start up again slowly, and then
accelerate cautiously. When driving down an incline, do so by setting the speed adjustment to the slowest
setting and driving in the forward direction only. If your scooter starts to move down the incline faster than
you anticipated or desired, allow it to come to a complete stop by releasing the throttle control lever. Then
push the throttle control lever forward slightly to ensure a safely controlled descent.
WARNING! When climbing an incline, do not zigzag or drive at an angle up the face of the incline.
Drive your scooter straight up the incline. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or a fall.
Always exercise extreme caution when negotiating an incline.
WARNING! You should not travel up or down a potentially hazardous incline (i.e., areas covered
with snow, ice, cut grass, or wet leaves).
WARNING! When on any sort of an incline or decline, never place the scooter in freewheel mode
while seated on it or standing next to it.
Handicap public access ramps are not subject to government regulation in all countries, and therefore do
not necessarily share the same standard percent of slope. Other inclines may be natural or, if man-made,
not designed specifically for scooters. Figure 1 illustrates your scooter’s stability and its ability to climb
grades under various weight loads and under controlled testing conditions.
These tests were conducted with the scooter’s seat in the highest position and adjusted rearward on the seat
base to its farthest rearward position. Use this information as a guideline. Your scooter’s ability to travel up
inclines is affected by your weight, your scooter’s speed, your angle of approach to the incline, and your
scooter setup.

Zoom
I I .
S A F E T Y
When you approach an incline, it is best to lean forward. See figures 2 and 2A. This shifts the centre of
gravity of you and your scooter toward the front of the scooter for improved stability.
WARNING! Do not exceed the incline guidelines or any other specifications presented in this
manual.
FIGURE 2. NORMAL DRIVING POSITION
FIGURE 2A. INCREASED STABILITY DRIVING POSITION
CORNERING INFORMATION
Excessively high cornering speeds can create the possibility of tipping. Factors which affect the possibility
of tipping include, but are not limited to, cornering speed, steering angle (how sharply you are turning),
uneven road surfaces, inclined road surfaces, riding from an area of low traction to an area of high traction
(such as passing from a grassy area to a paved area – especially at high speed while turning), and abrupt
directional changes. High cornering speeds are not recommended. If you feel that you may tip over in a
corner, reduce your speed and steering angle (i.e., lessen the sharpness of the turn) to prevent your scooter
from tipping.
WARNING! When cornering sharply, reduce your speed. When using your scooter at higher
speeds, do not corner sharply. This greatly reduces the possibility of a tip or fall. To avoid
personal injury or property damage, always exercise common sense when cornering.

OUTDOOR DRIVING SURFACES
Your scooter is designed to provide optimum stability under normal driving conditions—dry, level surfaces
composed of concrete, blacktop, or asphalt. However, Pride recognises that there will be times when you
will encounter other surface types. For this reason, your scooter is designed to perform admirably on packed
soil, grass, and gravel. Feel free to use your scooter safely on lawns and in park areas.
n
n
n
n
Reduce your scooter’s speed when driving on uneven terrain and/or soft surfaces.
Avoid tall grass that can become tangled in the running gear.
Avoid loosely packed gravel and sand.
If you feel unsure about a driving surface, avoid that surface.
STATIONARY OBSTACLES (STEPS, KERBS, ETC.)
WARNING! Do not drive near raised surfaces, unprotected ledges, and/or drop-offs (kerbs,
porches, stairs, etc.).
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter climb or descend an obstacle that is inordinately
high. Serious personal injury and/or damage may result.
WARNING! Do not attempt to have your scooter proceed rearward down any step, kerb, or other
obstacle. This may cause the scooter to tip and cause personal injury.
WARNING! Be sure your scooter is traveling perpendicular to any kerb you may be required to
ascend or descend. See figures 3 and 3A.
WARNING! Do not attempt to negotiate a kerb that has a height greater than 5 cm.

BRAKING INFORMATION
Your scooter is equipped with two powerful brake systems:
1. Regenerative: Uses electricity to rapidly slow the vehicle when the throttle control lever returns to the
centre/stop position; and
2. Disc Park Brake: Activates mechanically after regenerative braking slows the vehicle to near stop, or
when power is removed from the system for any reason.
PUBLIC ROADS AND PARKING LOTS
WARNING! You should not operate your scooter on public roads and parking lots. Be aware that it
may be difficult for traffic to see you when you are seated on your scooter. Obey all local
pedestrian traffic rules. Wait until your path is clear of traffic, and then proceed with extreme
caution.
NOTE: Safety accessories such as fluorescent flags are available to order from your authorised Pride
provider.
INCLEMENT WEATHER PRECAUTIONS
WARNING! It is recommended that you do not operate your scooter in icy or slippery conditions or
on salted surfaces (i.e., walks or roads). Such use may result in an accident, personal injury, or
adversely affect the performance and safety of your scooter.
WARNING! It is recommended that you do not expose your scooter to any type of moisture at any
time (rain, snow, mist, or wash). Such exposure can damage your scooter. Never operate your
scooter if it has been exposed to moisture until it has dried thoroughly.
FREEWHEEL MODE
Your scooter is equipped with a manual freewheel lever that when pulled up allows the scooter to be pushed.

Your scooter requires two long-lasting, 12-volt, deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free.
They are recharged by an onboard 3-amp charging system designed for ease of use and convenience.
n Charge your scooter’s batteries prior to using it for the first time.
n Keep your batteries fully charged to keep your scooter running trouble free.
You have the option to use either 32 AH or 17 AH batteries for
your scooter. Your scooter was preset to use 32 AH batteries.
If you decide to use 17 AH batteries, you must install the two
provided battery spacer brackets.
Follow these easy steps to install the battery spacer brackets:
1. Position the spacer bracket in the battery well. See figure 8.
2. Align the holes in the spacer bracket with the holes in the
battery well.
3. Install the Christmas tree clips. See figure 8A.
4. Repeat steps 1-3 for the second spacer bracket.
READING YOUR BATTERY VOLTAGE
The battery condition metre on the control console assembly
indicates the approximate strength of your batteries using a
colour code. Green indicates fully charged batteries, yellow a
draining charge, and red indicates that an immediate recharge
is necessary. See figure 9.
CHARGING YOUR BATTERIES
Follow these easy steps to charge your batteries safely:
1. Position your scooter close to a standard wall outlet.
2. Remove the key from the key switch.
3. Make certain that the manual freewheel lever is in the drive
(down) position.
4. Plug the charger power lead into the charger power lead
receptacle.
5. Extend the charger power cord and plug it into the wall outlet.
It is recommended that you charge your batteries for 8 to 14
hours.
6. When the batteries are fully charged, unplug the charger power
lead from the wall outlet and then from the charger power lead
receptacle.

BATTERIES AND CHARGING-FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQS)
How does the charger work?
When your scooter’s battery voltage is low, the charger works harder, sending more electrical current to the
batteries to bring up their charge. As the batteries approach a full charge, the charger sends less and less
electrical current. When the batteries are fully charged, the current sent from the charger is at nearly zero
amperage. Therefore, when the charger is plugged in, it maintains the charge on your scooter’s batteries,
but does not overcharge them. We do not recommend that you charge your scooter’s batteries for more than
24 consecutive hours.
What if my scooter’s batteries won’t charge?
n Ensure that the red (+) and black (-) battery cables are connected properly to the battery terminals.
n Ensure both battery harnesses that extend from the batteries are plugged into their mating harnesses
leading to the charger.
n Ensure that both ends of the charger power lead are inserted fully.
Can I use a different charger?
For the safest, most efficient, and balanced charging of your scooter’s batteries, we prefer and highly
recommend simultaneous charging of both batteries with the onboard battery charger.
How often must I charge the batteries?
Two major factors must be considered when deciding how often to charge your scooter’s batteries:
n All day scooter use on a daily basis.
n Infrequent or sporadic scooter use.
With these considerations in mind, you can determine how often and for how long you should charge your
scooter’s batteries. We designed the onboard charger so that it will not overcharge your scooter’s batteries.
However, you may encounter some problems if you do not charge your batteries often enough and if you do
not charge them on a regular basis. Following the guidelines below will provide safe and reliable battery
operation and charging.
n If you use your scooter daily, charge its batteries as soon as you finish using it for the day. Your scooter
will be ready each morning to give you a full day of service. We recommend that you charge your
scooter’s batteries for 8 to 14 hours after daily use.
n If you use your scooter once a week or less, charge its batteries at least once a week for 12 to 14 hours
at a time.
n Keep your scooter’s batteries fully charged.
n Avoid deeply discharging your scooter’s batteries.
How can I ensure maximum battery life?
Fully charged deep-cycle batteries provide reliable performance and extended battery life. Keep your scooter’s
batteries fully charged whenever possible. Batteries that are regularly and deeply discharged, infrequently
charged, or stored without a full charge may be permanently damaged, causing unreliable performance and
limited service life.

How can I get maximum range or distance per charge?
Rarely will you have ideal driving conditions—smooth, flat, hard driving surfaces with no wind or curves.
Often, you will face hills, pavement cracks, uneven and loosely packed surfaces, curves, and wind, all of
which affect the distance or running time per battery charge. Below are a few suggestions for obtaining the
maximum range per battery charge.
n
n
n
n
n
n
Always fully charge your scooter’s batteries prior to daily use.
Maintain 30-35 psi (pounds per square inch) in each tyre.
Plan your route ahead to avoid as many hills, cracked, broken, or soft surfaces as possible.
Limit your baggage weight to essential items.
Try to maintain an even speed while your scooter is in motion.
Avoid stop-and-go driving.
What type and size of battery should I use?
We recommend deep-cycle batteries that are sealed and maintenance free. Both sealed lead-acid and gel cell
are deep-cycle batteries that are similar in performance. Do not use wet-cell batteries, which have removable
caps.
CAUTION! Do not remove the caps from sealed batteries. Water cannot be added to sealed
batteries. Cap removal voids the battery warranty and may cause damage to the batteries and to
your scooter.
Use these specifications to reorder deep-cycle batteries:
Type:
Deep-cycle (sealed lead-acid or gel cell)
Size:
U-1 (32 AH only)
Voltage:
12 volts each
Amperage:
32 AH, 17 AH
To change a battery in your scooter:
WARNING! Battery posts, terminals, and related accessories contain lead and lead compounds.
Wash hands after handling.
1. Remove the seat and rear shroud.
2. Disconnect the battery tie-down strap.
3. Disconnect the battery harness.
4. Disconnect the battery cables from the battery terminals.
5. Remove the old battery.
6. Place a new battery in the battery well.
7. Connect the red battery cable to the positive (+) battery terminal.
8. Connect the black battery cable to the negative (-) battery terminal.
9. Reconnect the battery harness.
10. Reconnect the battery tie-down strap.
11. Reinstall the rear shroud and seat.
What about public transportation?
If you intend to use public transportation with your scooter, you must contact the transportation provider in
advance to determine their specific requirements.

B AT T E R I E S A N D C H A RG I N G
Why do my new batteries seem weak?
Deep-cycle batteries employ a different chemical technology than that used in car batteries, nickel-cadmium
batteries (nicads), and other common battery types. Deep-cycle batteries are specifically designed to provide
power, drain down their charge, and then accept a relatively quick recharge.
We work closely with our battery manufacturer to provide batteries that best suit your scooter’s specific
electrical demands. Fresh batteries arrive daily at Pride and are shipped fully charged to our customers.
During shipping, the batteries may encounter temperature extremes that can influence their initial
performance. Heat diminishes the charge on the battery; cold slows the available power and extends the
time needed to recharge the battery.
It may take a few days for the temperature of your scooter’s batteries to stabilise and adjust to their new
room or ambient temperature.
More importantly, it takes a few charging cycles (partial draining followed by full recharging) to establish
the critical chemical balance that is essential to a deep-cycle battery’s peak performance and long life.
Follow these steps to properly break-in your scooter’s new batteries for maximum efficiency and service life.
1. Fully recharge any new battery prior to its initial use. This charging cycle brings the battery up to about
88% of its peak performance level.
2. Operate your new scooter in familiar and safe areas. Drive slowly at first, and do not travel too far from
your home or familiar surroundings until you have become accustomed to your scooter’s controls and
have properly broken in your scooter’s batteries.
3. Fully recharge the batteries. They should be at over 90% of their peak performance level.
4. Operate your scooter again.
5. Fully recharge the batteries again.
6. After four or five charging cycles, the batteries are able to receive a charge of 100% of their peak
performance level and are able to last for an extended period of time.
How should I store my scooter and its batteries?
If you plan on not using your scooter for an extended period of time, it is best to:
n Fully charge its batteries prior to storage.
n Disconnect both battery harnesses.
n Store your scooter in a warm, dry environment.
n Avoid storing your scooter where it will be exposed to temperature extremes.
WARNING! If your scooter’s batteries do become frozen, do not attempt to charge them. Cold or
frozen batteries should be allowed to warm up for several days prior to recharging.
For prolonged storage, you may wish to place several boards under the frame of your scooter to raise it off
of the ground. This takes the weight off the tyres and reduces the possibility of flat spots developing on the
areas of the tyres contacting the ground.
