I purchased this escooter with the idea of an urban 3 mile commute along bike paths. Some of those bike paths are along roads and some separate. Some of the commute is along smooth pavement and some less well maintained. There are some inclines but mostly flat. I have used it a handful of times and charged it after each ride as recommended.
First, it is sturdy and portable, and I can carry it up and down a 4 flight walk up, although easily would be an overstatement. I keep it in my office and it fits easily on elevators.
The speed has hit a max of 19 mph and it has decent acceleration, allowing me to pass bicycles on occasion. My fastest commute time has been about 20 minutes. The platform is wide enough for me to balance on (5'7", 160 lbs) easily. The electronic brake has been more than adequate but the second disc brake provides added stopping power. The display is very clear. The front light is bright and the side and rear lights are great at improving your visibility.
The ride on smooth pavement is excellent. The solid tires provide peace of mind about flats but the ride is definitely very rough on rough pavement and is probably my only criticism of an otherwise perfect first scooter. The battery life has, so far, been excellent and we'll have to see about the durability but I am very happy about this escooter. I never thought of myself as an escooter sort but thanks to Hiboy for a great affordable and fun product!
