Electric scooter is a great alternative for walking and is also otherwise a fun vehicle for quickly and effortlessly moving between places. E-scooters are rapidly becoming the leading commuter transport solution across Europe. These scooters are lightweight and foldable, making them very popular with people who want to cut down their commute or just otherwise shorten the time spent on walking.
Keep these in mind when buying an e-scooter:
Load capacity: The weight that an electric scooter can carry, providing a safe and controlled driving experience. Check that the load capacity of the electric kickboard makes sense for its main user.
Power output of the motor: Personal choice. For a child, a motor with a lower power output is sufficient. Range, speed and efficiency in varying terrain is mainly determined by the power output of the motor.
Range: The distance an electric scooter travels on a single charge. It is affected by the driver's weight, terrain, temperature and driving style.
Smaller and solid rubber tires are often best suited for hard surfaces such as asphalt. Inflatable, larger tires are also suitable for softer surfaces such as gravel.
