I want to talk about electric kickboards. They are a great way to increase fitness levels and burn fat, but not everyone can afford them. With this article, I hope to provide you with all the information you need when it comes time for you to purchase your very own electric kickboard!
10 Steps for Buying the Perfect Scooter
1. Figure out how much you want to spend on your scooter.
Depending on the model, electric kickboards can range anywhere from $500-$2000. Unless you’re a professional athlete or someone with deep pockets, not everyone can afford to buy an expensive model. That’s why it is important to set a budget before buying any scooter. This budget will also help you narrow your search to better find a scooter that offers the best value for your money, within those parameters.
2. Figure out how fast you want to go on your scooter.
There are different models available which can go anywhere from 10 mph up to 22 mph, so there should be an electric scooter you can find that matches your preference. If you want a faster scooter, expect to pay more money. But if speed is not a priority for you, a cheaper model may be all you need.
3. Figure out what features are most important to you on your electric scooter.
Do you need Bluetooth speakers? How about a cup holder? Before purchasing a scooter it is important that you know what features are most important to you. The more features a model has, the better its value. This allows you to buy a cheaper scooter with fewer features because enough of them will be useful to you.
4. Figure out if your electric scooter will make a style statement or not.
Electric kickboards come in a variety of styles and colors. Some models only offer one option, but others allow you to choose from multiple different styles and color schemes before purchasing it. If you want your scooter to make a styling statement, pay more money so that the model you purchase is unique enough for you.
5. Figure out how much storage space you need.
Electric scooters come with different amounts of storage space that can hold everything from your wallet to groceries. This is an important factor to consider before purchasing any scooter because the more storage space you require, the bigger and more expensive the model will be.
6. Decide on the type of kickboard you want.
Electric kickboards are classified as either two-wheeled or three-wheeled models. Models with two wheels put more power on the ground, but it is harder to find them with storage space and other amenities like their three-wheeled counterparts. Models with three wheels are easier to balance on, offer more storage space (which is very useful for getting around), and are more stable overall.
7. Decide on the design of your electric scooter.
At first glance, you may not notice that there are different designs available for kickboards, but the options include cruiser, sport, and traditional designs. Cruisers are larger models with eleven-inch tires. They don’t have a lot of storage space but they are easy to use and offer more stability. Sport models have faster speeds, have less storage space, and do not have a seat. Traditional designs look more like skateboards with no handlebars and seven-inch tires.
8. Figure out how much weight you need your scooter to hold.
Some electric kickboards have a weight limit of 220 pounds, while others can accommodate up to 400. This is not much of an issue if you weigh less than 200 pounds, but it is important to consider before purchasing a scooter. The smaller the maximum weight capacity the cheaper the model will be.
9. Figure out when you will be using your electric scooter.
Electric kickboards can be used for commuting, exercising, or just having fun. There are models that are specifically designed for different uses than others. Models built to use as transportation usually have large tires and storage space in order to ride them to work every day. Sports models might be good for exercise but they may not offer the speed or storage space that commuters need.
10. Figure out the battery life you need your electric scooter to have.
The average kickboard has a battery life of up to twenty miles, but this will vary depending on the model you buy and how hard you pedal when using it. If you are planning to travel long distances with your scooter, pay more money to purchase a model with longer battery life.
