The Buzzaround LX 4 Wheel is a super-portable scooter option with a refreshed look since its first release.

The heaviest piece of both versions weigh less than 40 pounds making it ultra lightweight for you or your caregiver.

Comfort Features

Most portable travel scooters don’t have a reputation for comfort. The Buzzaround XLS-HD is average when it comes to its comfort features. The stadium seat offers slightly more cushion than the smaller manual portable folding Buzzaround CarryOn. This version within of the Buzzaround line is on par with other models within the same line. The Buzzaround XLS-HD offers three different seat height positions for your added comfort. The seat also swivels which allows for easier on and off transfers.
