Very sturdy and strong frame. Tires have great tread. Tires do a good job of going over bumps without catching. Those are the things I liked.
Things I didn't like: It is very tippy side to side compared to my Drive 790 knee walker. I think this might be due to the Knee Rover having only one wheel on the back??? I almost tipped over several times in my relatively flat yard just because I would hit a very small patch where it was lower on the side. The Drive is "stickier" with the wheels outside, but it doesn't feel tippy on the rough ground, which is important to me because I don't want to fall. The seat height on the Knee Rover does not fit me--I'm a little over 5'3" with a 31" inseam. The seat in the lowest position was still about an inch too high for me and made my knee and back on that side hurt with just a little use. It is very heavy feeling maneuvering around. It really tired me out to go out through my yard and it is easier to just use my Drive and deal with those wheels sticking more. I decided it just wasn't going to work for me, so I returned it.
I would give the scooter a 3. Would give your customer service a 5+

One suggestion I would make on the design is regarding the brakes. Since my Mom is the one operating it, she is having difficulty with the brake locks.It is very necessary to lock the brakes for stability when you get on or off the scooter, especially since most people are using this because of surgery or injury to a foot or ankle or leg.
In order to lock the brakes, you have to squeeze the brakes all the way, then push down the lock buttons on top. This squeezing is difficult for me and very difficult for her since she is 75 and has arthritis in her wrists. I would highly recommend a different design on the brake lock. The original knee scooter we used had a very easy brake lock. It had levered handles underneath the regular brakes that you just pushed down. It was easy for her.
Also the seat keeps moving around. We can't seem to get it tight enough to not move. So we are constantly having to readjust it to make it straight. I think a design where the seat locked into place better would help.
I will still recommend the gemini to those who ask about it but will also share my concerns about the brakes and seat.
Had crutches,wheel chair and rented curve knee walker. Ordered all terrain delivered a day later. Have returned everything except crutches. Very satisfied with the All Terrain and my garden is looking good. Must have if staying on the move is a must. This scooter is well built and keeps me on the move in the yard and garden. Go! Go!
I bought the knee walker for my dad who lives in France so it traveled in my suitcase it was light weight and with Brendan's help I got it to fit no problem. It was easy to get in and out of the car. My dad is 78 and they wanted him to walk on crutches for 4 weeks so with the knee walker he was able to get around the house even went to the store everyone there even his surgeon was amazed by his scooter as he calls it. My dad told me it was the best thing ever. Thanks for making my dads life a lot easier to get around.
