Level Up Your Electric Scooter (Part 1)

Level Up Your Electric Scooter (Part 1)

on

Electric scooters have revolutionized the way we move around. From being just a fun way to commute to being an eco-friendly and efficient mode of transportation, electric scooters have come a long way. However, with the plethora of options available in the market, choosing the right electric scooter can be overwhelming.


To simplify this process, Ride Hub Australia, Home of Electrified Beasts (E-Rides) put together a Buying Guide for your convenience when choosing the best electric scooter perfect for your lifestyle. The Buying Guide categorized electric scooters into 4 (four) different levels - Entry-Level, Intermediate-Level, Professional-Level, and Legendary-Level.


But remember, that every next level of your life will demand a different version of you. You will need to know the rules of each level in order for you to ride like a pro, and that’s what this article is for, for your convenience.


To make it less overwhelming, we will divide this article into two parts. Part I will cover the Entry-Level and Intermediate-Level while Part II will cover Professional-Level, and Legendary-Level. But as for the table of specs, we will keep all four categories available for easier viewing below. You can also determine your budget with the prices of our electric scooters on our website.

Entry-Level Electric Scooters

Rider Level: Beginners

Entry-level electric scooters are the basic, single motor e-scooters that are lightweight and easy to carry. They are perfect for those who are new to the world of electric scooters. Definitely these e-scooters are most affordable and easy to use, making them a great choice for beginners, perfect for the youth and students but not limited to them.


Entry-level electric scooters are particularly popular also among young professionals and city dwellers who are looking for a simple, convenient, cost-effective, efficient and eco-friendly way to get around.


Entry-level electric scooters usually have smaller motors, shorter ranges, and lower top speeds than more advanced models, but they are still a great option for short commutes or recreational riding just around town because of their simplicity. Overall, these starter e-scooters are the perfect e-scooter for short to medium distances, preferably flat terrain, however some models can exceed expectations and still run on rough roads. That is why it is important to read the specs of the brand and model e-scooter you are eyeing on before committing to one.


Intermediate/Long-Range Electric Scooters

Rider Level: Advanced

Intermediate-Level electric scooters offer a little more power and speed, making them suitable for those who want to take their riding experience to the next level. Of course, these advanced e-scooters have a longer range per charge than entry-level models and have higher specs. These e-scooters usually have more powerful motors too, sometimes even two. Without a doubt, they also have larger battery capacities, allowing them to travel greater distances before needing a recharge.


Long-range e-scooters are the best option for long distance rides or long recreational riding to explore the city or the outskirts of town. Designed with bigger wheels, at this level, these fast e-scooters may most likely be capable of riding on challenging terrains like uneven roads, mud, bricks and gravel roads. All thanks to the highly resistant rubber tires most long-range e-scooters have, which is what makes it non-slip, anti-skid and shock–absorbing, offering a comfortable ride that prevents leaks and damages to the tires. But make sure the long-range e-scooter you are eyeing on has all these before buying one. This is why it is important to determine which brand and model of e-scooter fits you best. Ride Hub is here to help find the best e-scooter for you, almost like it was customized just for you.


Most riders who choose this level are advanced riders who want more power and speed and are able to maneuver a long-range, power-filled e-scooter. These can be older riders, leaning more on the working class, and definitely speed lovers.


When it comes to portability, at this level, the e-scooters can still fall under portable (for the able-bodied) however because these e-scooters may carry single to dual motors, which are heavier due to their increased power and performance.


SPECTACULAR SPECS

It's important to note that these are general ranges, and specific models may have different specifications. Additionally, some e-scooters may fall between categories, and there may be some overlap in specs between different categories.
