Electric scooters are becoming one of the trendiest ways of transportation nowadays. Not only are they cool, but they are also quite quick, efficient, and most importantly, very eco-friendly. You could drive for several dozen miles on the same charge. It can get you from point A to point B faster than any other type of transportation available. However, it seems like a lot of people avoid jumping on this trend because they believe electric scooters are too heavy for daily use.
I admit that it is a good concern and a reason enough not to buy one. Having to carry your transportation vehicle with you does not sound exactly attractive, especially if it weighs 20 kilograms or even more.
Fortunately, there are several different types of classes when it comes to an electric scooter. Some are heavier while others are quite light. In other words, you can find the right one for you. It is time to take that concern about the weight of your mind and finally enjoy the benefits of these transportation vehicles.
To help you with your searching process, I am going to provide you with several different models (examples) and their weight. Once I give you the average electric scooter weight, you will most definitely be able to make a decision.
When delving into this topic, I cannot ignore the fact that there are very heavy electric scooters available on the market. Keep in mind, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Heavier probably means better battery and a more powerful motor. Better battery results in better range.
Of course, not everyone is interested in those kinds of specifications. Others will prefer the weight several times over the power and the range.
In the heavy class, we have quite a few models.
One of the heaviest on the entire market has to be the Dualtron X2 which is around 70 kilograms or 154 lbs. Imagine having to carry that up the stairs of your office building. But, there is a good reason why it is over 70 kilograms. It has huge tires to handle the extremely powerful motor that pushes over 65 mph. The battery is also huge, providing almost 100 miles of range.
Other models in this class are the Scrooser, UberScoot 1600W, Techlife X9, Dualped Scorpion+, Kaabo Wolf Warrior, and many more.
But, these models do not represent every electric scooter. There are many other models that are much lighter which brings down the average weight.
I would say that the heavy class ranges anywhere between 150 lbs. and 77 lbs.
Now that we got the heavier class that way, it is time to talk about the electric scooters with a medium weight. In this class, they range anywhere between 20 to 35 kg or 45 lbs. to 77 lbs.
I understand that for a lot of people that want something lightweight, this is still very heavy. If you are looking for something lighter, I suggest that you skip this one and go straight ahead to the lightweight class. Although, I said is that you continue reading because there are quite a few interesting models in this class.
There are a lot of models to pick from, but if you want power and better range, I suggest checking out the heaviest models such as the Inokim OXO, FLJ T113, Zero 8X, Razor EcoSmart, UberScoot 1000W Ford Ojo, and many others.
For those that are interested in a more balanced product, you should be looking at the 20 to 25 kg models. That is pretty light compared to everything else I mentioned before, but they still pack a nice punch of power and have quite a nice range. Of course, you will not be able to ride 100 miles like the $6000 Dualtron X2, but you can still go through 20 to 25 miles or maybe more, it depends on your riding style.
To get that balance, you can check out the Dualtron Spider, InMotion Lively, or Kaaabo Skywalker 10H. Keep in mind, this is just a list of the models available. I am not saying these are good or bad because that is up to you to decide. Maybe if you do some proper research, you could find something that is much better than these models I listed above.
Last but not least, the most lightweight electric scooters on the entire market. Obviously, the models in this class do not come with a strong electric mower, nor do they have a big battery. However, the entire point is not in the power or the range. The point is in the weight.
Many people are looking for these kinds of models because they cannot afford to carry such a heavy piece of equipment every time they want to get to work.
There are a lot of models in this class, but from what I can see the Unagi Model One and the Turboant X7 Pro are some of the most commonly recommended models. The X7 Pro is 15 kg while the Unagi is 12 kg. The X7 might be three kilograms heavier, but with a much better battery and a much sturdier chassis, the X7 is probably the better choice. Although, I am sure the Unagi is also great.
Of course, there are so many other electric scooters on the market that are even larger than the Unagi. If you want the latest electric scooter ever built, you should probably check out the SoFlow Air Carbon or the SoFlow Air Aluminum. They weigh only 7 kilograms or 15.4 lbs. But, you can imagine the range and power of these things.
Other alternatives are the Joyor H1 at 7.35 kg, the Evo EvoLite Carbon at 7.5 kg, and a few others.
As you can see, there are tons of options in every class when it comes to electric scooters. Which one you should get depends entirely on your needs. I hope that this article was informative enough to help you finalize your decision.
