Hiboy S2R electric scooter review – a solid commuter scooter

REVIEW – I’ve reviewed or purchased a half dozen electric scooters over the last few years, and I’ve definitely refined what I’m looking for in a good commuter scooter. First, it needs to be portable/foldable for public transport or stowed in a trunk for last-mile quick trips after a journey. Second, it needs to not …

Yes Electric Scooter review – A beautifully designed but flawed commute enhancer

REVIEW – If you’ve been in any medium to large city lately, you’ve likely seen rental electric scooters littering the sidewalks and zipping by you as you walk the streets.  Perhaps you’ve even used one.  While they are rather annoying for pedestrians, they are an efficient way to get around cities, and quite a bit …

iSinwheel i9Pro electric scooter review – Goofy name, decent scooter

REVIEW – We recently completed a 5.5-month world cruise with a couple of extensions in the Baltic.  One thing that stood out to us in Europe, and especially the Scandinavian countries, was the huge number of bicycles and scooters – electric scooters.  Most were the rental variety, like Lime and others, but wow – scooters …

ScootHop B1 Electric scooter review – It’s not just for kids, adults can scoot too!

REVIEW – Unless you’ve not walked around in a city or college campus town in a while (I know, there’s been a pandemic and all), you’ll know that electric scooters are a thing.

OTD L2-H Electric Scooter review – solid all around scooter

REVIEW – When OTD offered to send over their latest L2-H electric scooter for review, I’m not sure what I was expecting. I’ve ridden scooters of this style with no motors, gas motors, and a range of electric motors (from barely-able-to-move to too-fast-for-comfort). This new scooter from OTD might be the goldilocks scooter for me, …

Your scooter is too slow (and so is mine)!

CROWDFUNDING NEWS – Last year I reviewed an electric scooter by MICROGO.  It’s top speed was 18.5 MPH, which I thought was plenty fast.  I was wrong.  I need a scooter that is way faster, and so do you.  Or at least that’s what the good folks at Segway believe.  Yeah, that Segway.  The boring, …

The Glider from Inboard brings sophistication to electric kick scooters

NEWS – Chances are good you’ve seen a few kick scooters around your town by now. I ride a kick pretty regularly and the reality is that they’re a great ‘last mile’ solution for getting from mass transit, or your parking lot to the office. Not all of them are equal, however, and Inboard’s new …
