Choosing a car is too much trouble? PXID teaches you how to choose an electric scooter
I don’t know if you have ever been stuck on a commuter road. Anyway, I do. Whenever there is a traffic jam, I will cast envious eyes on the electric scooters passing by the roadside. Higher portability and lower maintenance costs also make scooters the first choice for more and more people. After arriving at the destination, you can easily fold them up, which is very convenient to carry. So today Uncle Che will talk about how to choose this electric scooter.
1. Performance related
If this is the first time you have bought this kind of electric scooter, and you have never ridden a scooter before, then I suggest you to be on the safe side and buy a car with a speed of less than 20 kilometers per hour. Because on the city’s roads, there is a lot of traffic and pedestrians, you can’t drive fast. On the contrary, it will be dangerous if you go too fast.
The choice of vehicle speed is also related to the road you take. Although most of the roads in the city are asphalt roads, it is not ruled out that sometimes they will pass through bumpy roads. If the speed is too fast, you may fall. Although I understand that some electric scooters can even reach a speed of 60 kilometers per hour, I still recommend that a speed of about 20 kilometers per hour is sufficient for daily use.
The minimum output of the scooter motor power is 250W, and the maximum output is 6720W. But the power of most scooters is between 500W and 2000W, and the internal motors are usually one or two. If you have to go to work every day, there are a lot of uphills on the roads, or the roads you pass through are low in traffic and people, or you often get stuck at the company. When you are about to be late, you need to take a fast sprint. At that time, it is recommended that you choose a high-power motor, it will help you on your way to work.
This should be considered in conjunction with your commuting distance. If the distance is really far, then there is no doubt that you can buy an electric scooter with a large battery capacity. But if your commute is very close, just buy a battery with the right capacity, and the weight of the body will increase with a large battery, so don't find it for yourself. Similarly, if you use your scooter every day, a battery device that supports fast charging is very important.
In fact, few people take the wheel into consideration when buying an electric scooter, but the wheel is actually very important. They will have a certain buffer effect on uneven roads. There are two types of wheels: pneumatic tires and solid tires.
The former is configured on high-end electric scooters, just like on cars: the air inside provides a cushion that can relieve bumps. Pneumatic tires perform better on slippery roads. But they do need more maintenance because they are easily pierced. On the other hand, solid tires are more sturdy, but the shock absorption effect is poor, and any unevenness on the ground will be fed back to your riding experience.
After choosing the tires, we should focus on the suspension. If you choose an electric scooter with pneumatic tires, then choosing to install the suspension will produce a perfect match, especially when the road conditions are not good, this match will give you the most perfect experience.
Weight and size
The size of the car is like choosing shoes. It is not good to be too big or too small. It must be suitable for the best. If you are a petite girl, riding an electric scooter that is too big will not control the body; if you are a strong boy, riding an electric scooter that is too small will not be able to control the balance. The second is the weight problem. If your bike is too heavy, taking it home to recharge is a physical task. The most common electric scooter weighs more than 11 kilograms, but the better-performing electric scooter may be heavier. About 18 kilograms.
Three, security issues
There are tens of thousands of driving, safety first, the editor here reminds everyone that you must wear a helmet when riding a bicycle, and you can bring knee pads and elbow pads when necessary. In an emergency, they may have saved your life.
If you will change to other means of transportation on the commute, such as subways, buses, etc., then the foldable PXID electric scooter is your first choice.
