So, the positives. It is so light I can now go out on my own, lifting it in and out of the car with ease. I have steps outside my house and I can, with a bit of thinking at the moment, get it out myself, meaning complete independence... Something I haven't had for over 10 years!
It's very simple to put up and down once you get the hang of it. I love to fact I can pull it up the stairs by its handle like a shopping trolley.
It's nippy and easy to turn too. So, I'm very adept on scooters, but this took me a bit to get used to since it has biker handles and breaks unlike anything I've used before, but a week or two later and I am so used to it now. I get looks and comments all the time about how fun it looks and where I got it from. I don't feel old and frumpy in it. Kids love the look of it and always want a go thinking it's a toy lol.
The turning circle is amazing. There's a ramp by me with an extremely tight turn onto the path that I can never make. But I can in this scooter. It's perfect for getting around tight shops like The Works which is notoriously difficult to navigate.
I used this at a festival in my first week and it's amazing on bumpy Fields and coped extremely well with tough ramps and going around fields.
The battery has a clever button to see how much charge is left on it and it charges really quickly and easily, it's so light. It's a little tricky for me to get out and you must lock it back in place so it doesn't fall out. Remember to take it out before shrinking the scooter for transport.
Few negative ish comments. The first is the seat width. I'm a large person, and this is built to take my weight, however, the seat is narrower than most kids wheelchairs at 30 cm wide. It's great for short rides around town and the shops but too firm for me to spend all day in. Even average mobility cushions are too wide at about 45cm to safely use or affix.
The height. It's very low to the ground. If you struggle with sitting on a dining chair you may struggle with Ren and Lupin. I feel low down when in a group of people on the high street. My knees also struggle to bend when seated on the Ren.
The brakes are good but not brilliant on a hill, even when locked on it can roll. I now use my feet on the ground when I stop on a hill.
Would I buy it again. Yes. Absolutely. All mobility aids have their adjustments to make. I think this company has excellent customer service. There was a dink in my brake handle on arrival and they sorted it out with no problem. Very quick very kind and polite.
Overall, I give my Ren 8 out of 10.
My previous scooter is a Rascal Liteway 3 and 8 for comparison.

I bought the Ren scooter as I have MS and can't walk far. My first real test was our weekend at Centre Parcs and it was just fantastic. It fitted in my car boot perfectly. I whizzed round the park without holding people back to wait for me. My grandkids loved it. It was quick and comfortable to ride on plus it seemed to cope well with hills. Brilliant product and great delivery and customer service. THANKS
Thank you for your feedback! This was so lovely to hear as its what we built our brand for. Do stay in touch with us!
simple instructions with pleasant and knowledgeable staff - the ren was a great price as well
Great friendly company to deal with. I have now used my Ren and it suits my needs well. One of the main things is that it fits into the boot (I don't have a big car).
I have only just received the Ren today but took her straight out (she’s now called Daisy). I have fought against a mobility scooter for a long time as I’m only 50 but have had to admit I have lost my freedom due to my disability. But literally straight out of the box and she was ready to go and I have fallen in love. Shes very easy to unfold and fold and such a huge pleasure to ride. I have my freedom back and my sense of adventure. She folds up small and now lives happily in my small hallway and fits easily into my car and I’m able to lift her in myself, I will say she is heavy but still manageable if you have good upper body strength. I’m looking forward to taking her to London on the train to visit my daughter and go Christmas shopping with her. Betty & Bertie answered my questions and gave excellent customer service. I foresee Daisy and I having many adventures together. And as you will see from my pictures that will a little imagination you can make the Ren fit you and your life. For the first time in a very long time I’m planning tomorrow not what I will fill my hours with at home but where can I go tomorrow and what can I get up to.
