What the reviewers say:
- “The scooters themselves were actually heavy and sturdy. This IS NOT A TOY scooter. This thing feels sturdier than some cars I've seen.”
- “I owned an electric bike for years. It recently died and no one has been able to figure out what is wrong with it. So, instead of spending $500 - $700 for a bike, I settled for this scooter which was $200 total. It was easily put together, and it gets me the 1.4 miles to my job every day.”
- “We ordered this scooter for my boyfriend to ride to work. It's about 2.5 miles. The scooter came and we immediately put it together, which took no time at all and we're a bit mechanically challenged, and set in on charge for the night. He rode it on the shoulder of the road to work and it was FANTASTIC. Took the hills just fine. He weighs about 185. No charging it all day then he rode it home with no problems at all.”
