From The Manufacturer

If you’re seeking a safe, convenient aid to improving your daily mobility, a rollator can be the ideal solution. Wheels make a rollator a superior option over a standard walker, eliminating the need to lift the device and allowing you to walk with an easy, smooth gait. Plus, rollators are better for traveling over uneven, outdoor terrain, making them great for your active, busy lifestyle. And with the built-in seat found on a rollator, you’ll always have a convenient place to rest. Featuring a revolutionary design and eye-catching style, the nitro dlx has exploded onto the rollator scene. The nitro’s caster fork design allows for an enhanced turning radius while the 10″ front casters allow optimal steering and rolling comfort. In addition, the nitro dlx locates brake cables within the unit’s frame for safety and offers quick and easy tool-free adjustment to the handle height and back support. Plus, the nitro dlx has a firm, sturdy, and durable seat that separates in the middle to allow the nitro dlx to easily fold to ultra-compact size for storage or transport.

Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

Works well over rough terrain. Firm seat, not a loose sling. Very easy to fold and maneuver.
The removable storage bag is hands-down the most attractive one that we have come across in reviewing three and four-wheel rollators.
This is a pretty simple walker that easily folds with one hand into a compact unit for easy storage.

What reviewers didn't like

Brakes are either on or off, no intermediate option. Front wheels "toe out," creating balance issues. Heavy model can be difficult to load into vehicle.
The removable storage bag can be a little tricky to get on or off- it may take a little bit of practice before you get the hang of it.
