The scooter has become a real means of locomotion like the bike or rollerblades. There are more and more manufacturers and it is difficult to make a choice in the face of an ever more diversified catalog over the years. We will try to direct you to the electric scooter that will suit you best.
Things to consider when choosing the right electric scooter
The main characteristics that should guide your decision are the weight, the autonomy, thecomfort and ergonomics.
One does not park a scooter at the bottom of his building or in front of his house because they are easily stolen because of their light weight and their discretion. This is why the weight of your electric scooter is an important element: you will have to wear it regularly. There are ultralight models of 7and others at a maximum weight of 42 kg. It is your own weight that defines the choice of the weight of the scooter that you will choose. Indeed, the higher your weight, the more the materials will have to be robust and therefore heavy.
You will then have to ask yourself whether or not you will have to wear the scooter regularly or only for a few seconds. Thus, the weight will be an important element to take into account in the choice of the model.
Are you going to use it on long trips or on short trips?? This is also an important point to take into account before choosing the model of ideal.
You should know that the higher the autonomy, the larger the battery and the heavier the scooter. It is therefore necessary to juggle the problem of weight and the problem of autonomy. The goal is to find the perfect balance between your size, the time of your journeys and the time of transporting the machine with its arms.
Most ofhave three speeds, the first of which is limited to 25 km/h in accordance with the law.
For tarmac and flat terrain, it is not necessary to have very high power and speed. Here, the weight does not matter because a flat path without slope does not require a particular top speed.
For “all-terrain” use, we will rather opt for a lighter but powerful and robust model. The battery and motor quality must be suitable for terrain that may contain bumps, rocks and steep slopes.
Choose your electric scooter according to the type of trip
A long journey necessarily implies maximum autonomy, increased comfort and very good manoeuvrability.
In the case, for example, where you want to transport your electric scooter on public transport, it is important to choose one that is compact, light and folds easily. Same thing if you live at 5e floor without a lift, it is better not to make a mistake in choosing the right model.
We will opt here for a scooter with suspension to absorb shocks as much as possible and avoid, for example,. It will also need to be fitted with 10-inch off-road tires.
For daily use
If you plan to use your scooter every day, it is important to choose a model that will combine comfort, maneuverability and. On the other hand, we will have to give up on one of the light models because these will not hold up in terms of the battery and your driving comfort.
