Using your Quingo in the Snow

Here at Quingo, we know that confidence is extremely important when you are out and about on your scooter during the cold winter months.

You can rest assured that all the technologies behind your 5 wheel scooter are continually at work, up and down every hill and every kerb, enabling you to continue to use your scooter safely and maintain your independence.

With snow and icy conditions forecast across the country, you might fear that it will be too difficult to get out and about and carry on with your essential everyday journeys. However, this is not the case when it comes to using your 5 wheel Quingo.


In fact, using your scooter is one of the very safest ways to get around in ice and snow. It makes staying connected with your community, family and friends so much easier to do – even in the treacherous weather. It goes without saying that making your journeys on your scooter is much safer than walking anywhere.

Quingo 5 wheel scooters offer safe, comfortable mobility all year round in good and bad weather but they also perform fantastically well in cold, icy and snowy conditions as you’ll see below:

With 5 points of contact on the ground at any one time, they are extremely helpful for those vital journeys to the shops or just visiting friends or family whatever the weather.

To ensure that your scooter remains in optimum condition we recommend that you don’t leave it out in the snow or freezing conditions for prolonged periods. This will affect the performance of your batteries. Keeping it stored in a safe, dry, secure environment with adequate protection is a must.

If you’re planning some wintery trips out in the snow, don’t forget about the all-weather canopy, which will keep you and your Quingo dry whilst you’re out and about. If you have a compatible model, you may find that heated handlebars make that journey a little more comfortable as well.
