The electric scooter is a convenient and fun environmentally friendly transportation tool. When you decide to buy an electric scooter, how can you buy a high-quality, affordable electric scooter?

What should I look for when buying an electric scooter?

When you buy an electric scooter, many factors will affect your decision, such as price, design, weight, mileage, maximum speed, power, lights, brakes, tires, after-sales service, etc.

1. Price

The main price range of adult electric scooters is $300-600, but the quality of the product usually increases as the price increases. The price of a high-end adult electric scooter is at least $600, here I suggest you our Gyroor X8 electric scooter. Product price is your first consideration, because when your budget is insufficient, you have to abandon some features or reduce requirements.

2. Design

When we ride on an electric scooter, we all want to be like a majestic rider, so a good design is very important. It will bring you a good mood and attract the eyes of passersby. Gyroor HR9 is foldable design and easy carry for commuting.

3. Weight

The weight of the electric scooter is also to be considered, because this will affect its portability and maximum load. Think about the time you need to go up and down the stairs during your commute, and then choose the escooter that suits you.

The weight of the Gyroor X8 is 22kg, and the maximum load capacity is 120kg.

4. Mileage

The longest mileage determines where you can go every time you are fully charged? At the same time, consider whether this distance can satisfy your daily commute.

Generally speaking, the quality of the battery determines your mileage. The better the quality, the higher the mileage.

5. Maximum speed

What is the maximum speed you want to ride when you are speeding all the way? For safety reasons, most electric scooters have a top speed of about 20 mph, and the Gyroor X8 has a maximum speed of 18.6mph.

6. Motor Power

The power of an adult electric scooter is at least 250 watts to allow you to smoothly traverse flat ground and small hills. For people living in mountainous areas, a scooter with dual motors or a single motor with greater power will be a better choice.

The Gyroor X8 electric scooter has a built-in 500W high-power motor, which can easily climb up to a slope of 25°.

7. Light

In order to ensure the safety of riding, the scooter you buy must have sufficient lighting, including front and rear lights, and turn signals. Of course, you can also buy high-brightness LED headlights and install them yourself. Gyroor X8's unique lighting design, the taillights will flash when braking.

8. Brake

The brakes of electric scooters are related to our safety, so it is very important. There are four common brakes:

  • Electric or regenerative
  • Foot brake
  • Drum brake
  • Disc brakes

Among these types, disc brakes are the most effective and reliable, but they usually only appear in expensive electric scooters. Electric brakes require zero maintenance and work well when combined with foot brakes.

9. Tire

There are two types of tires for electric scooters: pneumatic tires and airless tires. Although pneumatic tires provide better shock absorption, they also require more routine maintenance than airless tires. Gyroor X8 uses 10-inch pneumatic tires with better shock absorption.

10. New features

Many electric scooters provide some new features that can bring you a better riding or user experience. Gyroor X8 support NFC care unlock and Smart APP control.

11. Where to Buy

You can buy electric scooters in many places, such as local dealers, Walmart, Amazon, online websites (Buy from GYROOR), China purchases, etc.

Buying locally, you can have a good after-sales service, and then buying in China/online, you can save a lot of money, so you must have a trade-off.

12. Warranty

Not all electric scooter suppliers/dealers provide warranty services that you can trust, and you should understand their after-sales maintenance policies before buying. Gyroor provides a 1-year warranty for electric scooters, of which the battery’s warranty is 6 months and there is a 30-day money-back guarantee.
