How comfy do you want your ride to be?

If you’re not sure where to begin while shopping for an electric scooter, look into the ride quality.Some e-scooters have so poor ride quality that they can’t be ridden for more than a mile on anything less than a pristine surface. These e-scooters may appear attractive on a website, but many people abandon them because they are “bone shakers.”

The quality of the ride is influenced by a variety of factors:

Dimensions of the wheels

We highly urge you to avoid wheels with a diameter of less than 10 inches. Smaller wheels provide a more choppy ride and are more likely to get trapped in potholes.

Large wheels with air in the tyres are required in most cases. You’ll need fat treaded tyres and suspension if you plan on doing a lot of off-road riding.

Tyres that are solid or filled with air

Pneumatic (air-filled) and solid rubber tyres are the two types of tyres available (airless).

Air-filled tyres provide a smoother ride because they absorb stress and provide better handling, but they are more prone to punctures and require more maintenance.

If you choose air-filled tyres, we highly advise you to buy ‘puncture prevention fluid’ as well. You may never need to change your tyres if you use this before your first ride.

You’ll also need to check your air pressure on a frequent basis and top it up if it’s low. For safety, braking efficacy, and traction, proper tyre pressure is critical. Under-inflation causes wear, reduces battery life, prevents you from achieving peak speeds, and makes you more vulnerable to punctures.

If you often ride where there is a lot of glass, thorns, or nails, e-scooters with solid tyres require almost no maintenance and provide a solution to punctures.

A low-maintenance solid tyre’s drawback is that it’s not as pleasant to ride, so you’ll notice more bumps and vibrations.

Suspension

An e-suspension scooter’s functions similarly to that of a vehicle, smoothing out bumps and shocks from the road. Consider whether you’ll be riding off-road or on rough terrain, and if so, suspension should be a top priority when shopping for an electric scooter.

You’ll have vibration in the handlebars if you don’t have it, which may be annoying on longer rides – and where’s the fun in that?

A smoother ride may be had on an e- scooter with big, air-filled tyres without suspension than on one with solid tyres with suspension.

If you want an off-roader that can handle tougher terrain, an electric scooter with good suspension is a good option. Suspension can be fitted to either the front or back wheels, or both.

Brakes

When choosing an electric scooter, your safety should always come first, and brakes are crucial.

Disc brakes and drum brakes are two types of brakes.

Drum brakes

These are contained within the wheel hub and need less maintenance than other forms of braking. They also work consistently in wet situations.

Disc brakes offer the highest stopping force and are lighter than drum brakes, allowing for more speed by reducing the overall load.

While drum and disc brakes are the finest of all, they will wear out over time and, like a car, will require servicing.

Brakes on the feet

Foot brakes are triggered by pressing down on the rear mud guard with your foot. This takes practise unless you’re used to riding a kid’s scooter. They offer somewhat greater stopping force than drum or disc brakes, but they are less pleasant to operate and less effective.

To maintain your electric scooter in good operating order, make sure you service it on a regular basis. It is essential to properly maintain your scooter.

Hill-climbing ability and motor power

In the e-scooter purchase guide, there is a graphic of a hill climbing scooter.

The average ‘rated’ power and peak power output of an electric scooter motor are different. The higher the wattage of the motor, the more power it can create, which means better acceleration and hill climbing ability.

The majority of ‘budget e-scooters’ start at 250 watts and go up to 15 mph. If you weigh more above 80 kilos, these models may struggle to climb hills and will likely struggle to attain their peak speed.

If you wish to tackle hills on a regular basis or if you are larger than normal, we recommend upgrading to a machine with at least 350 Watts and considering powering up further from there.

Water-resistance

Most electric scooters are not waterproof, which is a little-known truth.

Because some of the world’s leading e-scooter manufacturers are Chinese, their scooters are designed specifically for the Chinese environment.

As a result, riding most e-scooters on damp surfaces, in puddles, or in the rain might cause them to stop working. Furthermore, getting your e-scooter wet will void the guarantee, so you’ll have to pay for the replacement yourself, according to the tiny print of many e-scooter warranties.

Maximum Capacity

A scooter with a 120kg load on it demonstrates the need of considering maximum load when purchasing an e-scooter.

You should keep in mind that not all electric scooters are constructed to carry the same amount of weight, so keep that in mind while making your selection.

The maximum load capacity of e-scooters intended for Europe is typically 100kg. Many persons who weigh more than 100 kg ride these e-scooters on a daily basis. However, you should be aware that doing so will void your warranty and may be hazardous.

If you ride an e-scooter that isn’t designed for your weight, your performance and safety will almost certainly be compromised. Riding an e-scooter in this manner will not allow you to achieve the vehicle’s peak speeds, and you will struggle harder with slopes.

Pure Electric’s e-scooters are intended to accommodate a variety of body shapes and can carry up to 120kg of weight.
