Aug 02, 2022
That’s sure. Electric scooters are convenient and much fun to use as a way to get around. And then one question for you if you want to get one scooter, that is how do I choose a quality electric scooter that is suitable for me?
Therefore, we have compiled this beginner's electric scooter buying guide to help you make your decision.
Things to consider when buying an electric scooter
When buying an electric scooter, you are initially attracted by its appearance, right?
It’s not difficult to choose a stylish electric scooter that meets your riding needs.
KUGOO KIRIN M4 Pro folding electric scooter has a stylish outlook, with a 500w motor for a maximum range of 40 miles, 3-speed modes, and can reach a maximum speed of 28mph. What’s more, it is equipped with a removable seat and shock-absorbing pneumatic tires leading to a super comfortable and free ride for you.
When choosing an electric scooter, the weight of the scooter is an important factor that you have to consider. If an electric scooter is too heavy and then it won't be easy to carry, and instead it’s a chore, right?
KUGOO electric scooters with a weight range from 8.9 to 23.5 lbs, can be folded and carried by an adult easily. You need to note the maximum weight of the electric scooter, and if you are a little over the max weight, this is fine.
The battery capacity will also affect your riding experience. A larger capacity battery will of course give your e-scooter more power and a longer range.
How fast do you want to ride? Some are just speed freaks, seeking a very high speed to achieve their ultimate riding experience. Others simply need an electric scooter that can handle the speed of their daily commute.
If you need a fast speed, then you might consider the KUGOO G2 Pro folding electric scooter, which can reach a top speed of 31mph.
You should choose an electric scooter with a power of at least 250W, which is enough to get you across flat surfaces and hills.
But even a 500W motor will slow down when going up steep hills.
To ensure your safety, you need a front and rear light with sufficient illumination at night. You can also buy an additional light if the light on the electric scooter itself is not bright enough.
Several different types of brakes are available for electric scooters.
- Electric brakes
- Foot brakes
- Drum brakes
- Disc brakes
Disc brakes are the most effective and reliable, but are usually more expensive.
Electric scooters are equipped with pneumatic or solid tires. Both types of tires have their advantages and disadvantages. Pneumatic tires provide good shock absorption but require more maintenance. Solid tires, however, are largely free from problems such as flat tires but do not provide as good shock absorption as pneumatic tires.
The KUGOO S1 Pro is equipped with solid tires but has a shock-absorbing honeycomb design so that you can also enjoy a smooth ride without worrying about the risk of a leaky or flat tire.
Electric scooters come in a wide range of prices, and those that cost more tend to be of good quality. However, we just need to pick an electric scooter that is within our budget. It does not exclude the fact that mid-priced scooters can also be very good.
Not all electric scooters come with a warranty. Therefore, it is important to ask if the electric scooter has a warranty, what the warranty covers, etc. when you buy it.
The bottom line on selecting an electric scooter
Based on your needs and happiness.
All things above for you to consider, but you should always buy one scooter that meets your need and you feel happy and cool to ride on it.
And then, it suits you the best.
