Easy to carry around
Compared to a bicycle or motorcycle, foldable electric scooters are portable, making them very easy to carry around. Most scooters are made from lightweight materials that have the entire scooter weighing around 14 – 20 kg.
On top of it being light, these electrical scooters can be folded in two. This makes it so much easier to bring your scooter up to your building at work or around the school campus. For those living in high-rise condominiums, it’ll be no problem taking it up with you in the elevator.
Take the Ninebot Kick Scooter Max and its one-step fold mechanism. It only takes 3 seconds to fold it and carry it on public transportation and to any desired destination. Additionally, it’s made from a durable, lightweight aerospace-grade aluminum alloy, making it weigh only 30 lbs.
Can be conveniently stored
An electrical scooter is not only a good way to get around, but it’s also very easy to store once you’re done with it. Once folded, its size is reduced. This makes it easy for you to tuck it away in the corner of your office or the hallways of your apartment.
You can even consider taking your electrical scooter on out-of-town vacations. It can easily fit in the trunk of your car once it’s been folded along with all the bags you need for your trip.
KickScooters come with a unfold mechanism that reduces its height in half in a few scooters. When folded, the Ninebot KickScooter E45 just stands at 14.2 inches tall from 46.1 inches. Its classical foldable design makes it fit perfectly in the back of car trunks.
No parking required
The constant struggle of many car owners and motorists is finding a parking spot. Buildings and schools always have a limited number of spaces. You can push those worries aside since one of the many benefits of a foldable electric scooter is that there is no parking required.
However, you should ask permission from the proper authorities if doing this is allowed before bringing your folded scooter with you into the office space.
There will be instances where you’ll have no choice but to park your scooter outdoors. Scooter owners buy a lock for their scooter for this scenario. The Password Lock for KickScooters is a good option since its strong braided steel provides good resistance to cutting and sawing. It also comes with a 5-digit lock for extra safety.
Eco-friendly mode of transportation
With an electrical scooter, you’ll be lessening your carbon footprint daily. Electrical scooters produce zero emissions compared to other vehicles that require gasoline to run. Electrical scooters simply need to be plugged in to fully charge.
The KickScooter models all come with chargers for you to plug in your scooter when needed. The KickScooter Max already comes with a built-in charger reducing the need to carry around a bulky charger.
Other models like the Ninebot KickScooter ES3 give you the option to add an Extended Battery Kit to prolong its battery life and increase its speed at the same time. The scooter also comes with a Smart Battery Management System that closely monitors its battery status.
Safe and easy to ride
All modes of transportation have a learning curve when you ride them for the first time. For an electrical scooter, you’ll just need to master balancing. Once you get the hang of riding, it becomes very easy to ride.
You don’t need to use the pushing power needed for bikes and skateboards when you own an electrical scooter. It comes with devices for accelerating and braking which you control with your hands.
The KickScooter ES2 has a double-braking system to ensure maximum safety. This means that it has both a mechanical and electrical brake you can control. This system will stop the scooter within 13 inches at 12.4 miles per hour.
