We know it can be really hard to determine which Electric scooter is best for you. Here are some of the most important factors to consider when buying your Electric Scooter:
1) Choose the right Power
As a minimum, we recommend 350W of power for the average Joe looking to for the occasional ride in town. For heavier riders navigating longer distances and hills, we recommend upgrading to a 500w motor. We consider anything above 1000W in the performance range. You can expect speed, thrill and power on these bad boys so make sure you wear a helmet.
2) Don’t go swimming with it!
It’s true, most E-Scooters and E-Bikes can absolutely withstand the light splash of rain here and there. But always check the rating and never fully submerge any Scooter in water. For peace of mind, all our Scooters are splash-proof meaning you’d have no problem riding them in light rain.
3) UK looking to Legalise E-Scooters
We have some great news! The UK government is assessing the positive impact of electric scooters and looking at ways to make them legal. Currently E-Scooters are only allowed on Private Land in the UK. But many European countries have allowed their use so why not purchase one and take on your next holiday?
4) Bigger Wheels = Smoother Ride
Wheel or Tyre size is actually more important than you might think. For the most comfortable ride, we recommend 10 inch tyres that are air-filled to provide cushion and soft navigation over bumps on the road.
5) Don’t Buy Poor Quality Rides
Buy cheap, pay twice. The UK market is absolutely filled with bad quality and cheap imported Electric Scooters. We know this because we repair hundreds of them every month brought in to our repair shop by many riders who have fallen for them. That’s why we recommend buying an Electric Scooter from reliable UK-based retailers. Our own range of Electric Scooters are hand-selected to be both high quality and affordable from legitimate manufacturers. That is why we offer our own no-quibble in-house 12 Months Warranty on everything we sell. Take a look here.
