This year has definitely been the year for e-travel. Electric scooters are incredibly affordable while each design and model seems to have an extended battery life and extended range. With the recent surge in popularity of e-scooters, we’re going to be looking at the top 5 electric scooters of 2019, hand-picked by SkateHut.
Boosted is a brand that have been leading the electric skateboard market for some time. They have now applied their electrical expertise to scooters. The Boosted Rev sports a range of 22 miles on a single charge and has a re-charge time of only three hours. This e-scooter clearly does not like to rest for too long, it’s far happier out on the road! The Rev has a top speed of 24mph ensuring you get to your destination speedily. The brakes have regenerative charge to extend the battery as much as possible.
The Xiaomi m365 model has been a major breakthrough for the brand. This scooter is packed with amazing features and is priced affordably. The battery life allows for both a top speed of 25kmh and a range of 30km and achieves this by generating a trickle charge during acceleration and braking. The scooter sits high on 8.5" air filled tyres providing a smooth ride. It also features a rear disk brake which is provides better breaking power during wet weather.
The M365 release was such a success that Xiaomi has now released the pro model which includes some of the latest features in the market. For starters, the size of the scooter has been increased by 5cm in height and length - perfect for taller riders. The battery is the major selling point of the Xiaomi M365 Pro. On a full charge it boosts the range of the scooter to 27 miles (45km) so battery worries during the day should be a thing of the past! The motor has also been increased to 300W so the M365 Pro has more power to climb hills. The scooter also has a bigger display which shows a lot more speed, setting and battery information. The M365 is a great purchase but if your budget allows for the upgrade to the pro the improvements will definitely put a smile on your face.
