The ability to move about without any restrictions is something that many of us take for granted. With that said, having the ability to do what you love doing each day is something that every person should be entitled to.

Getting up close and personal with Jazzy Power Wheelchairs
On the lower end of the spectrum, we have the $1,999 Jazzy Passport – a compact and fairly lightweight power wheelchair that folds in a few simple steps. It offers plenty of foot resting and storage room, along with an ultra-smooth and comfortable ride.
Other key features include a backseat pocket for additional storage while you’re traveling, an under-the-seat mesh storage space, mesh cup holder and 40” seatbelt, as well as a specialty foam integrated into the seat for unmatched riding comfort. The air-safe travel battery means you can even fold it up and take it with you while flying.
With such a superb array of transport and storage capabilities, the Jazzy Passport takes away all the hassle of moving around when you have lots to do, people to meet and places to go. Even though it can withstand a maximum weight of 250 lbs., its base weight is a mere 60 lbs. One battery charge can help you cover almost 10 miles.
Ask anyone who’s had the pleasure of owning the Jazzy Passport and they’ll tell you that it “maneuvers easily and the control is very intuitive” or how it’s “useful for everyday traveling with perfect controls and the ability to make sharp turns in tight spaces”.
If you’re on a bit of a budget, then the crowd favorite Pride Go Chair priced at $1,499 will meet all your mobility needs. The sleek design is actually available in ten distinct colors, giving you and your wheelchair a little extra character.
The lift-up armrests let you easily get out of your electric wheelchair while the stadium-style seat ensures optimal comfort throughout the 8.74-mile maximum travel distance. The 25.4” turning radius lets you easily maneuver your Go Chair in cramped indoor spaces or narrow aisles and hallways. With two reasonably sized under the seat storage bins, width and height adjustable armrests as well as one-touch disassembly, there’s no better choice than this entry level Pride Mobility power wheelchair, if you’re on a tight budget.
Budget restrictions aside, on the higher end of the spectrum, one of Pride’s flagship electric wheelchairs is the Jazzy Air 2 – with its trend-setting elevating power chair that takes just 11 seconds to elevate your seating position by 12 inches, even when you’re on the move.
Whether you want to adjust your seated position better at the bar or at the family dinner table or just want a clearer, high-vantage view of the world, the Jazzy Air 2 is not just a mobility aid but an innovative “power toy” that everyone with mobility challenges should try.
At the heart of this $3,999 engineering marvel is a generous amount of customization and unmatched comfort. With three unique seat sized to choose from, adjustable footplate and battery upgrade options, the Jazzy Air 2 delivers on its promise of slick, modern style, new-age functionality and practical design.
The ability to drive up to 19.2 miles with upgraded 40Ah batteries means that you can travel to your heart’s content at a maximum of 4 mph, even in the elevated seat position. The bright LED markers at the front and back ensures optimal safety at night as well as foggy and rainy weather, while the patented Active-Trac suspension with mid-wheel drive technology offers some of the best stability levels in an outdoor power wheelchair, and consistent performance over a variety of terrains.
The under-seat front storage compartment is ideal for taking your valuables with you and keeping them easily accessible at all times.
In the just over $3,500 price range, we have the Jazzy Elite ES 1, a rugged but sporty and stylish looking Pride electric wheelchair with sharp and pronounced lines and a mind-boggling 5” turning radius! Need to make ultra-sharp turns or even complete 360° turns in narrow hallways or congested aisles while shopping? The Elite ES 1 has got you covered as Pride has designed it with maximum indoor and outdoor maneuverability in mind. The front-wheel driven motor and large wheels in the middle are configured to prevent tipping, and help you negotiate not only indoors but all kinds of outdoor terrain as well.
With a 12-mile battery life, 300 lb. weight capacity and top speed of 4 mph, the Jazzy Elite ES 1 is a great choice if you’re looking to buy “all the goods” at a fairly good price.
With chronic obesity becoming a pressing concern across the nation, many individuals find it cumbersome and unusually difficult just to move around between places or perform the things that they love doing. The Jazzy 614 Heavy Duty Bariatric power chair has the ability to withstand a weight of up to 450 lbs. with a maximum travel range of 11 miles.
This beautifully designed and engineered elderly wheelchair by Pride Mobility features the patented Active-Trac ATX suspension, improving the chair’s ability to negotiate a variety of outdoor terrain including inclined surfaces that are raised by 6°. The large mid-drive wheel with front and rear casters ensures optimal stability and a sturdy ride at the 4.25 mph top speed.
With height-adjustable and flip-back armrests as well as three unique legrest and seating options to choose from, the Jazzy 614HD combines ergonomic comfort with high stability and heavy duty performance.
The $4,499 Jazzy 1450 is the cream of the crop, offering one of the most comfortable seating options available in an electric wheelchair and the ability to shoulder a maximum weight of 600 lbs. The larger, more rugged wheels at the front and an all-wheel drive system offers a dream-like ride not experienced in any other power wheelchair in the same price range.
Never worry about getting stuck or having to drive your way around outdoor obstacles and uneven terrain, because the Jazzy 1450 is fully capable of negotiating a variety of rough and uneven terrain, while also allowing users to climb 6° inclined surfaces with ease. The three unique seating options can also be adjusted between 20-28” width-wise and 18-28” depth-wise. Twin Group 24 batteries help carry you over a distance of nearly 16 miles.
What Pride Electric Wheelchair is Right for Me?
Choosing the right pride mobility power wheelchair for yourself pretty much comes down to one thing if you look at it in the broad sense: its intended use.
However, with detailed specifications sheets and product overviews, the sheer information available to you can sometimes be a bit overwhelming and even confusing.
A great way to judge a product’s suitability is to read customer reviews and first impressions. Granted, what might work for one individual may be the opposite for another. This is why we’ve taken some of the key strengths of the Jazzy power wheelchair product line and share a few highlights with you in order to aid you in your decision:
If you’re looking for a smooth, comfortable and stable ride outdoors, then perhaps the Jazzy Select 6 is one of the best options. With more than ample adjustments for the seat and armrests, there’s plenty of comfort, performance and durability to be had.
If you want the added benefit of being able to elevate your seat by a good few inches, and that too while on the move, the mid-wheel driven Jazzy Air offers superb all around stability both indoors and outdoors, as well as sound durability and performance.
If you’re really looking for a budget electric wheelchair to get you from point A to point B, the Jazzy Go Chair with its 300 lb. maximum weight capacity is one of the best investments you can make. It is a highly portable electric wheelchair with its heaviest piece weighing only 36 lbs.
Another Pride Mobility power wheelchair for the budget conscious is the Jazzy Passport – a state of the art lightweight electric wheelchair that can be folded in a few simple steps. Despite its size and portability, it can take you up to almost 10 miles and a top speed of 3.6 mph.
If you’re not at all held back by a limited budget, then the Jazzy 600 ES with its patented Active-trac ATX suspension offers an unbelievable and unforgettable ride and brag-worthy performance, given its super-tight turning radius which is the lowest in the Jazzy power wheelchair line.
