Electric scooters have become a symbol of modern urban transportation, and they can be seen in major cities like Paris, Madrid, and San Francisco.
The trend appears to be heading only one way: upwards!
While we think this recent surge in popularity is fantastic, we can't deny that many people are still skeptical.
Do you think you fit into this category?
Maybe we may persuade you to alter your mind!
Push Bikes are great, but you'll have to keep it chained up outside and vulnerable to theft, and they're too big to be considered truly portable.
Electric scooters are lightweight and foldable, making them easy to store and transport.
You can easily pull it along like a little luggage, allowing you to transport it almost anyplace. Then, when the time comes, all you have to do is unfold it and you're off!
We can't talk about the benefits of electric scooters without talking about the environment. They use very little electricity and produce no emissions, which is better for the air quality in our cities and the lungs of the people who live there. Electric scooters are the most reliable, economical, and environmentally beneficial mode of transportation.
Climate change is the era-defining geopolitical story of our time.
Electric scooters are currently one of the frontrunners in our collective hunt for more ecologically friendly ways of transportation and lower emissions.
3. Pollution due to noise
Silence and sightseeing in a metropolis never go together.
Almost any mode of transportation generates a large quantity of noise pollution — cars, motorcycles, buses, and trains are all extremely loud.
If you're wearing hard-soled shoes, even walking can be noisy!
The electric scooter is a whisper-silent method of transportation that is the most efficient and quiet way to move from point A to point B.
We're sure you or someone you know has had a neighbor who works extremely early or extremely late hours, and the sound of their car or motorcycle arriving home late at night or very early in the morning is a jarring interruption.
If they had an electric scooter, you wouldn't hear a thing.
Movement + Balance
Another challenge that humanity is currently experiencing is our increasingly sedentary lifestyle.
Many of us work in seated offices or jobs, and the majority of us drive or use the train to and from work.
When you add in modern communication technology (FaceTime, Skype, Whatsapp, etc.) that allows us to socialize without having to leave the house, movement becomes less and less important, and many struggle to find the time to exercise.
You may get your body moving with an electric scooter for shorter distances that you would normally drive or take public transportation.
Of course, riding an electric scooter isn't a substitute for exercise, but it will help you strengthen your core and improve your balance.
A scooter can be used to replace a chair with something a little more active.
Every means of transportation entails some level of risk.
When you go faster than walking speed, you increase your chances of having an accident - even if it's as simple as tripping or colliding with someone while jogging.
Scooters are possibly safer than other personal modes of transportation, such as cycling, roller skating, or riding hoverboards.
For one thing, if you see an impending collision, you can just step off.
You can't do this on bikes or roller skates, and you have immediate access to the brakes, which hoverboards don't have.
Electric scooters are quick enough to be practical and enjoyable to ride, but they also provide enough control for you to feel comfortable and secure.
We can't say enough good things about electric scooters, which is probably not unexpected.
The Fuze, our very own electric scooter, is a great example of how fantastic they can be.
The Fuze is one of the fastest and most exhilarating ways to get around town, with a range of up to 55 kilometers, incredibly effective Electronic Regenerative Braking, and a top speed of 40 kilometers per hour.
