Concord, February 26th -
Today Sunrise Medical Canada Inc. launches the latest scooter in its Fortress Family - the Fortress S425. The Fortress brand has been known by Canadians for over 20 years and is synonymous with durability, performance and high quality. The S425, designed in the UK, is a prime example of these core values and the perfect mix of luxury in a compact format for indoor and outdoor use.

Key features make the S425 the scooter of choice for 2018. The Fortress suspension is a definitively unique factor that distinguishes it from other products. All-around advanced adjustable independent suspension offers pure performance and ultimate comfort. LED lighting makes the unit safe to use at all times of the day.  While compact, the S425 offers lots of legroom helping to create a proper seating position and also comes with the extra-large basket that Fortress scooters are known for. This storage basket is ideal when running errands or to carry everyday accessories.  

The S425 seat with recline provides a deeper back contoured padding and has flip-up armrests featuring width, angle and depth adjustments, a headrest, and rear storage pocket.

Getting in and out of the scooter safely has never been so easy with the seat slider, a rotation for easy transfer, and height adjusting seat post. Many other features of the S425 such as the motor, the tiller, the anti-tippers and several modern accessories, make it the new scooter to test drive before any purchase.

“The Fortress S425 is a great all around scooter, and the development team are very excited about this new launch in Canada. The S425 builds on the solid reputation of the renowned Fortress brand, and through great teamwork with the Sunrise Medical Canada team we are looking forward to our new product launch.  We hope our Canadian customers enjoy the Fortress S425 model in their daily life as much as our other global customers do”, says Adam William, Product Manager for the Scooter line at Sunrise Medical.
