    If you want to buy the best electric scooter you can find, it’s worth doing your research. Make sure you assess all your options to get a good feel for the product and find something that is worth the investment. Here’s what you should be looking out for;

    What to Look For When Buying an Electric Scooter

    Much like with cars and bikes, you’ll want a scooter that can take the bumps and jumps of city terrain. Unlike cars, however, you’ll also want something light enough to carry up and down the scooter-er’s worst nightmare – stairs. Be on the lookout for electric scooters made of aluminium or carbon fibre, as these materials are lightweight as well as sturdy. You’ll want to avoid plastics, as they provide little protection on impact, and over time will become brittle and weak.


    Much like with the materials of your electric scooter, you’ll want a set of wheels that are sturdy and long-lasting. The more you use your electric scooter, the more important you’ll find the wheels to be. Suspension will ensure a smooth ride across all terrains, while eight to ten-inch wheels will ensure solid traction through rain, hail, and shine (just wear a helmet through the hail).


    A solid battery life can be a trade-off for weight with electric scooters. Obviously, the larger the battery, the longer you can ride for, but this also means that the battery will be heavier. If you can charge your scooter between trips, you may be able to get away with a smaller battery. Partnered Bluetooth apps can help monitor battery levels, as well as the overall well-being of the electric scooter. Through these associated apps, you can also switch your scooter between economical and sports mode, to save or use battery when needed.
