The First ‘One Click’ Folding Scooter
New to SkateHut, is luxury electric scooter brand Unagi. Born out of a frustration for traditional urban transport methods, Unagi’s aim was to create a personal, reliable and inexpensive vehicle. What they came up with was their range Unagi Electric Scooters.
Focusing on ‘liberating people from the tyranny of transportation frustrations’, Unagi have designed a product that eliminates daily costs and carbon emissions as well as stresses and inconveniences. Ideal for the city commuter & explorer, their electric scooters allows riders to avoid using underground systems and electric scooter or bike rental services, providing them with their own personal device, at their disposal, whenever it may be needed.
Heralded as ‘The iPhone of Scooters’ by TechCrunch and described by Unagi themselves as ‘the finest electric scooter on Earth’, Unagi have managed to set themselves apart from the re st of the quickly-emerging electric scooter market through their impeccable design.
Incorporating innovative design with top of the range specs, the Unagi One has set a new standard for electric scooters.
The first electric scooter to feature ‘one click’ folding technology, the One E500 can be folded in half and locked in place effortlessly, allowing riders to easily carry their scooter around and store.
Crafted from a magnesium alloy, the handlebar is perhaps the most attractive part of it. Built with an integrated screen, riders can easily see their speed, range and battery life, without having to connect to their phone. The handlebar also incorporates the ergonomically designed braking lever system, as well as a horn and LED headlight for safe riding.
For those who are not comfortable with lever braking, Unagi have also built in an additional intuitive friction brake, which allows riders to simply press on the rear wheel casing to control their speed, similar to that of a traditional push scooter.
Three different types of ride mode allow users to pick their top speed, however, the One E500 is capable of up to 25km/h (15.5mph) on its highest setting. The Sony battery takes 4-5 hours for a full charge, and will run for up to 24.95km (15.5 miles), allowing riders plenty of range for their commute, and more if needs be!
Overall, we think the Unai One E500 is one of the best models available on the market right now, and is a serious option for anyone looking to revolutionize their daily commute.
Although private electric scooters are not currently legal to ride on roads of pavements at the moment, with rental electric scooter schemes being rolled out across the UK, MPs are looking at changing this legislation. Electric scooters are still perfectly fine to use on private land currently!
