SmartScoot weighs in at 39 pounds and quickly disassembles to three pieces (the heaviest piece weighs 27lbs). Being able to quickly fold or disassemble for storage makes SmartScoot the ideal scooter for people who love to travel and explore or simply want to be able to continue everyday activities that require mobility.
I find the stability to be better than my previous scooter. My previous scooter was rear wheel drive where this one is front wheel drive. On a slope, the front wheel is pulling you the direction you are going rather than the rear wheel pushing and the front wheel trying to steer with no power.
You can even space one wheel farther from the center than the other if the slope is one you encounter often. Obviously the wider you space the wheels apart, the more stable it is. With a single 2-inch center bar, it is easy to drag your feet along the ground, like balancing yourself on a bike, on a slope that really concerns you. I have never felt unstable on it. Regardless, because it is adjustable, you can set it up for however you feel comfortable.
