Buying Guide

There are several aspects to look out for when finding the best electric scooters for adults.

If they are built by a trusted manufacturer, then this is obviously a good sign. Going for a well known brand is a smart idea. Cheap off-brand scooters might seem too good a deal to pass up, however, their components will most likely require more regular repair, maintenance, and new parts. Warranty might be an issue. The great thing about buying from a specialized retailer is that they stock parts and can repair your scooter as well as offer a full service.

As you can gain fast speeds quickly, it is essential to ensure you can stop.

There are some models with front or rear brakes only. Others with foot brakes, disc brakes, and/or a combination of front and rear brakes, electric, and regenerative brakes! By ensuring you have the correct braking system, it will ensure you don’t end up on the floor having gone over the handlebars.

It can be dangerous when you don’t marry the scooter to the purpose and task at hand. To be safe, we recommend mechanical brakes over purely electric brakes (or a combination thereof). The high-performance models have both front and rear disc brakes. We are not saying electric scooters are not safe at all, only that like any form of transport where you can gain speed, safety is key.

When it comes to frame and fork construction, it is better to go for thick steel tubes and plating. This will be heavier than thinner designs but tougher in the long run and it will be more resilient. Lighter alloys are more likely to bend or break under regular use.

Adult Electric Scooters vs Kids scooters

There are so many adult versions of these electric scooters that people might not even realize they were first designed to be used by kids. Scooters for younger riders are recognizable due to their smaller size. However, there is a middle ground where specific models are suitable for adults and older children. This can make it tricky to know which ones are ideal for each age bracket.

Please note that there are weight restrictions for electric scooters, and this is to be able to get the most out of the motor. Therefore, a child scooter is likely to have a smaller motor and also a lower weight restriction.

When looking at buying an adult electric scooter for an older child, bear in mind the actual weight of the scooter. A bigger motor can often mean a heavier scooter that an adult may manage with ease, but a child may not. This design is due to the purpose of the scooter. Adults are more likely to use their scooter for commuting, compared to children just doing short distances for fun. Therefore the range of a child’s scooter is significantly less than that of an adult scooter.

E-scooters can have either two or three wheels. The latter gives extra stability and is safer for kids. Adjustable handlebars are a feature on commuter or lightweight scooters. They need to be set between the rider’s stomach and chest to allow for appropriate visibility. However, for off road scooters and faster models, fixed handlebars are preferred to provide more stability.
