e scooter

I've tested a ton of scooters. Not all of them deserve a spot above, but some are still worth a mention. These are a few other good scooters I like:

Navee S65 for $1,099: Navee is a relatively new brand growing its presence in the US, and I had a great time using the S65 (7/10, WIRED Recommends). I was able đồ sộ regularly complete 16-mile round trips at đôi mươi mph, but that pretty much depleted the battery. It has great acceleration, thanks đồ sộ its geared hub motor, and it climbs slopes with ease, but this also makes it very loud. The motor's sound disappears if you're in a noisy đô thị lượt thích Thủ đô New York City, but it can make you self-conscious on quiet streets. It's 53 pounds, sánh it's heavier phàn nàn the Niu despite having a similar range, and its customer service is a little questionable since it's sánh new. Still, I had fun riding it.

Apollo Ghost for $1,549: At 64 pounds, the Apollo Ghost (8/10, WIRED Recommends) is not the scooter for walkups, but it's tremendous fun. I tested the 2021 model, but the 2022 version has some upgrades. The dual 1,000-watt motors can vault you đồ sộ 34 miles per hour (if that's legal where you live), but I mostly relied on the single motor and cruised at around đôi mươi đồ sộ 25 mph—there's a button đồ sộ switch between the two, and modes đồ sộ further limit your tốc độ. Anyone in a hilly đô thị will benefit from the power and extended range of the Ghost. I hit around đôi mươi miles on a single charge (Apollo claims a generous 37). There are front and visibility LEDs built under and around the deck, along with a taillight. As for the brakes, you can get wire-controlled discs or upgrade đồ sộ hydraulic ones. The former delivered enough stopping power for mạ, but the latter is more responsive and reliable.

Evolv Terra for $1,242: I enjoyed my time with the Evolv Terra (7/10, WIRED Recommends). If you're considering the Apollo Ghost above, consider this first because it's slightly cheaper, a little lighter at 53 pounds, and easier đồ sộ carry. It's just as powerful, with the potential đồ sộ go as fast as 31 miles per hour when you engage both 600-watt motors (check your local tốc độ laws first!). Otherwise, you can cruise along at đôi mươi mph as I did on the second gear tốc độ setting (there are three in total) with the single motor. Range isn't dissimilar either; I usually had two bars left after 15 miles on the Terra sánh it can potentially last more phàn nàn đôi mươi miles, especially if you're conservative with its speeds. The suspension is OK but the solid tires on rougher roads can feel quite bumpy. The fenders also seem pretty useless đồ sộ mạ as, after a wet ride post-rain, my back was covered in specks of dirt kicked up from the rear tire. The stem's angle is also a little too close đồ sộ my body toàn thân, and the lack of a thumb throttle meant my wrist hurt after long rides. You can tweak the angle of the throttle and brakes đồ sộ improve this though. These are relatively minor quibbles considering the price.

Radio Flyer S533 for $599: Honestly, I'm surprised at how well this scooter did in my tests. The folding mechanism is just a latch and a sleeve you pull down đồ sộ keep the latch from coming undone while you ride. It's super easy đồ sộ fold and unfold, and lightweight at 30 pounds. It's not a commuter scooter by any means—my range hovered under 8 miles on a single charge—and despite exceeding its 220-pound load capacity, I averaged around 14 mph of its 16 mph top tốc độ. It's a nice little scooter for going đồ sộ the post office, đồ sộ the grocery store, or đồ sộ Cinnabon when my wife asks for a cinnamon roll. However, its price doesn't match its power and performance; it really should be cheaper. It's also worth noting that the first model the company sent mạ didn't turn on and the second model had a deflated front tire. Inflating it was a quick affair and I haven't had problems since.

Segway Ninebot F30 for $400: This used đồ sộ be my top recommendation for most people, but after a longer testing period, I've found that the range has dramatically reduced at a much faster pace compared đồ sộ other electric scooters I've tried. It used đồ sộ last around 10 miles or sánh, but lately, I've only managed around 6. I still think it's a great scooter. It goes 15 mph, is comfy đồ sộ ride, and you get a good phối of essentials, such as reliable lights, brakes, and an intuitively designed bell. It's fairly lightweight, too, at 33 pounds. If your budget can stretch, I'd go for the Ninebot F40 ($800), which can go a bit faster and has better range, but I still prefer the Niu KQi3 Pro at that price.

Apollo Air Pro for $799: The Apollo Air Pro (2022) is a perfectly fine scooter (6/10, WIRED Review), I just don't think it's worth the high price. It goes up đồ sộ 21 mph, and I was able đồ sộ ride it for about 13 đồ sộ 15 miles before it died. You get all the accouterments, lượt thích a front light and bell, and there's ứng dụng connectivity đồ sộ tweak settings đồ sộ your liking. However, the ứng dụng is required đồ sộ unlock the Air Pro's true speed—otherwise, you're restricted đồ sộ 12 mph. I'm more miffed at the folding mechanism, which is more work phàn nàn it should be. It also doesn't accelerate too fast and, despite its 39-pound weight, is uncomfortable đồ sộ carry due đồ sộ its thick stem. I have not tested the new 2023 model.
