Lightweight Adult Electric Scooter
Lightweight Adult Electric Scooter
Hi. Just wanted to leave a quick review because of how helpful this thing has been to me.Great battery life. Totally last for over 4 hours straight on saving mode, I supposed. Fast and furious.Quite heavy but good for weight lifting. Really Really reliable and worth the money compared to any models that are $100 less for it.It does recommend not to have 2 people, but hey, two extra tires come with it, so I cannot complain.Charge fast. Run fast. Zoom fast. I am never late for my class.
Upgraded the firmware out of the box because I had the screen to upgrade it to a pro-like model. I am over 260 and it did not blow up or catch fire on first test. Pending future testing.Update - Second Test took it cruising around on relatively flat city areas. Battery life is easily 8+ miles for me. Downside securing it if not kept in view or with a friend it can walk easily (fold the bars and wrap a secure bike cable between back wheel and around the folded handlebars.) Found good video on youtube a guy puts 10inch (easier to put on/take off) tires on his with minor modifications (just cut old tires off with a knife or razor.) Also this scooter includes a new set of stock tires and tubes in the box.
I did a lot of research before purchasing these scooters. We really couldn't be happier. Very simple to ride. Now my wife and I are in our late fifties and wanted something to cruise around with, around town and to take with us to car shows and camping with our RV. These fit the bill perfect!! I weigh 180 lbs and my wife around 120 and we can go around 15 mph which is plenty fast. There is an economy mode and we generally keep it on that at all times because we roughly get around 12 mph and 18 miles before you need a recharge. The only problem you will have is people stopping you to ask you about them. We are happy to tell them. Light enough to carry if you need to. We walked on the beach in Florida for a half a mile with them. Folds great fits in the back of my 1969 Chevelle to bring to car shows. Also fits great great in the RV. Buy them!! You won't regret it!!
I thought I already reviewed this after 1 month, but that review is gone ?????Anyway. Good scooter overall. I can use it to commute 8-10 miles to work, charge it while I’m there, then scoot my way on home. Decent speed and range.Issues: I’ve gotten 3 flats within the 1st 300 miles. Currently running a solid tire in the rear and will switch the front when it gets flat as well. The tires are EXTREMELY difficult to change. I have around 450 miles on my scooter as I don’t use it to get to work every day, just occasionally.The folding mechanism gets loose very easily. You can print or buy 3D printed spacers that go in between the gap where it folds and that helps quite a bit.Brakes need to be adjusted at the jump. Not hard, just know it’s something that should be done. While you’re at it, install a 3D printed wire protector for the wire that goes to the rear light.Plastic bit that locks the latch of the fold down mechanism is weak and will eventually break. Aliexpress or banggood has replacements cheap.The big one, that just happened to me today... there are pins that hold the top post onto the steering neck. Mine just fell out today. Fortunately I was just walking beside my scooter when it crumbled to the ground or I could have been seriously hurt. I have some pins laying around so it was a quick fix for me, but not everyone has them laying around like I do.Overall this scooter is a solid value, especially at its current price (about $350), as long as you don’t mind tinkering with it and modding it a bit to get it right. I wish it was this price when I bought it.
I've had this scooter for about six weeks now and I use it to ride to work most days. My commute is short - 1/4 mile - so I have zero issues with range. I weigh about 210lbs and it hauls me around just fine. I'm sure someone lighter would zip by me on the up-hills and get more range, but I am happy with what I get. On the flats and downhills I'm doing about 14 - 15 mph and I don't really want to go faster. On hills I slow down to about 1/2 that and occasionally I will give a kick or two for a boost. I have found the build quality to be very good and I have had no issues with any component. My main comments are as follows: 1) It is so much fun; on smooth roads you just glide along like you are skiing. With wind in my ears and the feeling of floating, I just can't help carving gentle turns when the road is clear. I love it! 2) You need to be aware that you are on a scooter with smallish wheels and you should wear a helmet. I have ridden bikes and motorcycles and all sorts of other things that you balance on and I am much more comfortable having a helmet on than not. I don't feel like I'm going to take a header, but I can just sense that it's a distinct possibility. 3) It doesn't have any suspension and you feel everything. My little community has quiet roads that have been paved recently and they are a dream to ride on. When I go on the older roads I feel the bumps and cracks. 4) The headlight and tail light work great, but there are no signal lights. I am not comfortable taking one hand off the bars to signal and have not found a good way to signal intentions or to wave people on. 5) The folding bars are great and very easy to use. So far I haven't had a need to fold, but I've demonstrated the process many times to interested people. I look forward to taking it along on my boat next summer and scooting around Block Island. 6) It's just so quick to use. You scoot the moment you leave your door and step off right at the door you are heading t...
