Many electric scooters suffer from a lot of weight. This means that buying them is not even considered by those who live in a house without an elevator. And in vain! Some models can still be called very light. And it is about them that will be discussed in this article. We can safely say that even an elderly person can use the vehicles considered in it!

e-TWOW Booster PLUS – V
This electric scooter amazes not only with its weight, but also with its opening possibilities. It was created in honor of the 5th anniversary of the manufacturer, and it implements all the technologies available to it. For example, a lightweight Samsung battery with a capacity of 10.5 Ah is introduced here. Its full charge is enough to cover about 40 km! The electric scooter is also capable of boasting a new controller, thanks to which the acceleration has become incredibly smooth, which is very important when maneuvering among pedestrians.
This vehicle moves without much noise even on paving stones. This was achieved not only through the use of an electric motor, but also with the help of wheels made of solid rubber. At the same time, they are still quite good at absorbing small irregularities. However, there are also shock absorbers here, so you will definitely not be shaken. The diameter of the wheels is 8 inches. The rear wheel has a classic mechanical brake. But the front has a regenerative brake, which stores the released energy in the battery. Braking is smooth, you definitely won't be able to fly through the steering wheel.
The construction of the electric scooter is very durable. The manufacturer claims that it is capable of withstanding a 120-kilogram weight. But we do not recommend loading it especially hard, because each additional kilogram will reduce the mileage on one charge. By the way, the e-TWOW Booster PLUS – V is driven by a 500 W electric motor. The operating mode can be selected via the on-board computer with color display. In particular, you can limit the maximum speed to get as far as possible. If you remove the restriction, then you will accelerate to 25 km / h (if your weight does not exceed 75 kg, then you can reach 33 km / h), which can be considered an excellent result for such a small scooter, which also has a folding structure. It should be noted that to perform all the manipulations with the cruise control, you do not need to connect to the vehicle using a smartphone, for this the capabilities of the above-mentioned on-board computer are quite enough.
Perhaps this is a rare case when an electric scooter does not have any particular drawbacks. Its weight is 10.8 kg, and the folding mechanism allows you to transport the e-TWOW Booster PLUS – V by train or other form of public transport. If you have 60 thousand rubles, then you will definitely not be disappointed with the purchase!
- There are shock absorbers hidden in the body;
- Folding mechanism is used;
- Really light weight;
- Thoughtful brakes;
- Decent mileage on a full charge;
- Decent top speed;
- There is an on-board computer;
- Withstands even a serious load.
- High price.
Razor e prime
Another foldable electric scooter that should appeal to both children and adults. Its weight, it's hard to believe, is only 9.72 kg. It was achieved through the use of lightweight materials from which most of the vehicle is made. Alas, this influenced the maximum load – it is only 80 kg. This does not mean that the scooter will inevitably break under more serious load. But there will definitely be such a chance, especially when overcoming all sorts of obstacles.
As you already understood, this model is primarily intended for children. This is evidenced by at least the use of a rather modest 250-watt motor-wheel here. Also, an adult will not like that a full charge of the battery provides only 40 minutes of continuous running. With a top speed of 24 km / h, no long distance can be expected. Well, what else did you want from a battery with a capacity of only 3.2 Ah? By the way, its full charge takes 4 hours.
The 200 mm front wheel made of polyurethane is also afraid of serious stress. Electronic braking is also tailored for teenagers. Formally, it can be considered a double, because to stop you can also use the push of your foot on the rear wing, which protects against splashes.
In short, the Razor E Prime is a wonderful electric scooter. But he is suitable for an adult only if he maintains excellent physical shape. Teenagers will be the most delighted with this model. Many of them will not even be embarrassed by the lack of a full-fledged on-board computer here. Alas, it will not work to adjust anything even with a smartphone, since the possibility of connecting it, again, is excluded.
- The electric scooter turned out to be very light;
- Decent top speed;
- Implemented smooth gas regulation;
- Folding mechanism is used;
- There is a battery charge indicator.
- Mileage from full charge – about 15 km;
- Modest engine power;
- The price cannot be called low;
- I would like a more advanced braking system.
Ninebot Kickscooter ES1
This electric scooter is also foldable. This makes it easy to take it with you on a bus or tram, not to mention the train. Unlike the model that opened our rating, this instance is simplified as much as possible. Due to this, the manufacturer managed to reduce the price to 27 thousand rubles.
The Ninebot Kickscooter ES1 has a battery that charges in 3.5 hours. However, you will not be able to detect it! The fact is that in this model it is hidden in the steering rack. This should protect it from both dust and moisture. But this does not mean that we recommend actively operating the electric scooter in the rain.
The manufacturer claims that his creation is capable of withstanding a 100-kilogram load. But you don't need to expect impressive speed from the scooter – the maximum declared is 20 km / h. And if you activate the economy mode, then this speed will not be achieved either. But on the other hand, you can cover about 25 km!
The electric scooter moves with two wheels. The front has a diameter of 200 mm. The rear is 192mm, and it is to this that the 250W motor is connected.
There is an LED display on the steering wheel of this model. It will show you the current speed, charge level, selected operating mode, and connection status via Bluetooth. Here you need to connect to a smartphone solely in order to get acquainted with the total mileage and other useful information.
Otherwise, this is a typical mid-budget electric scooter. It includes an electric brake, supplemented by an anti-lock braking system. Well, the weight of the vehicle is 11.3 kg. In a word, this is a great purchase for 27 thousand rubles! Or even for a little more money. But this is still not the best option for those who like to drive a similar vehicle somewhere out of town – such people may not have enough maximum mileage from a full charge.
- Folding design is used;
- It is possible to connect to a smartphone;
- There is a bright LED display;
- Able to withstand not only a child;
- Quite good braking system;
- The battery is protected from dust and moisture;
- The cost cannot be called very high.
- Not very high power;
- I would like a longer run;
- Metal rumble when overcoming the curb;
- Regular signals that cannot be turned off.
iconBIT Kick Scooter TT v3
One of the simplest electric scooters in its execution. Its frame is made of aluminum alloy. This makes it possible to understand that the vehicle must withstand even a 100-kilogram load. It is driven by a 250-watt motor. Its capabilities are enough to accelerate to 20 km / h. This figure cannot be called particularly high, but when driving in a city where there are many pedestrians, this is quite enough.
A lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 5 Ah is used as a power source. It will take about 4 hours to charge it. In the future, you can monitor the level of its charge using the LED display, which at the same time indicates the current speed and the selected mode. You should not hope for a particularly long trip from a full charge. Also, you should not use the electric scooter when it rains, otherwise you may cause irreparable damage to the battery.
The engine here is exclusively equipped with the front wheel. Its diameter is only 6 inches. As for the brakes, it is stopped by pressing the mudguard against the rear wheel. Not the best solution, but in this price segment it is quite common. You can also note the presence of a fairly bright headlight, consisting of five LEDs. The manufacturer has not forgotten the rear light either.
The weight of this model is 8.5 kg. Wonders? In fact, this figure is not surprising. Don't forget that this electric scooter has very small wheels. Yes, and it feels like this is not a vehicle that can withstand jumping and performing other tricks. But this model definitely justifies its cost. Especially if you are ready to accept the lack of the ability to transfer statistics to your smartphone.
- Built from durable aluminum;
- There is a folding mechanism;
- Convenient LED display;
- There is a headlight and a taillight;
- Low cost;
- Very light weight.
- There is no way to connect a smartphone;
- Modest braking system;
- Weak motor;
- The wheels are too small;
- Long charging;
- Not a very large power reserve.
Many people know the HIPER brand for portable batteries. However, for some time now, the company began to indulge in the release of other products, which also include a battery. One of them is the VX500 electric scooter. It turned out to be very interesting. They ask for only 15 thousand rubles, while the vehicle shows itself quite adequately when making city trips.
It is felt that the manufacturer did his best to reduce the weight of the electric scooter. To do this, he equipped it with tiny wheels, the diameter of which does not exceed 127 mm. The electric motor also turned out to be modest, its power was only 180 watts. Even the battery turned out to be somewhat cut down – competitors are often able to offer more than 4 Ah. It is also sad that it takes 4.5 hours to charge such a battery.
The use of the aforementioned components resulted in a scooter weighing only 7.7 kg. It seems that even a child can bring such a transport to the fifth floor. Strictly speaking, teenagers will like this model the most. Adults, on the other hand, may not appreciate the fact that the battery charge dries up after 7 km. Although it must be admitted that some characteristics of the electric scooter will still suit. For example, the brakes work well here. The front wheel is stopped by pressing the corresponding button, while the rear wheel is braked by pressing the mudguard against it. It is also impossible not to note the possibility of acceleration to 20 km / h. But it should be admitted that such acceleration begins to actively consume energy. Finally, the joyful picture ends with an aluminum alloy, from which most of the electric scooter is made. It is unlikely that something will happen to him, even with a heavy load.
- Good brakes with anti-lock braking system;
- Includes LED headlight and lighting;
- Low cost;
- Made of aluminum alloy;
- High speed achievable;
- The electric scooter turned out to be very light.
- Very small wheels;
- Frankly weak motor;
- Very long charging time;
- Minimum mileage on a single charge;
- Smartphone cannot be connected.
Our review ends with a children's electric scooter. Its manufacturer immediately makes it clear that this vehicle simply will not stand an adult. To be precise, the maximum declared load is 60 kg.
It is curious that this instance has a folding mechanism. This means that you can go with your child somewhere on the train – a scooter will definitely not hurt. Also, one cannot fail to note the possibility of adjusting the height of the steering wheel. The child will grow – the scooter will grow after him.
This model is equipped with 200mm wheels. It is easy to see that many 'adult' electric scooters have the same. However, in this case, one of the wheels is driven only by a 150-watt motor. Needless to say that such an engine can only handle the weight of a child? The engine takes energy from a battery with a capacity of 2.6 Ah, which is charged in a couple of hours. It ends after overcoming, in the best case, 10 km.
Children's electric scooters almost never accelerate to particularly high speeds. Here, too, this parameter will not exceed 15 km / h. However, this will be quite enough, especially if a 7-year-old child is driving. The low speed allowed the manufacturer to dispense with the hand brake. Instead, it uses the traditional pushing the mudguard against the rear wheel.
- The weight of the electric scooter was only 7.9 kg;
- Folding design is used;
- Ideal for most kids;
- Fast charging implemented;
- There is a footrest;
- The steering wheel is height adjustable;
- Rides with large wheels;
- Very light weight;
- Low cost;
- Some waterproofing has been implemented;
- The LED torch is not forgotten.
- Low speed;
- An adult can not stand it;
- Not very high mileage on a single charge;
- Only the foot brake is used;
- Weak motor.
This is a list of the best electric scooters among those that are lightweight. The vehicles considered in this review will not become a burden if the battery is discharged earlier than expected. Also, you will not have any problems with bringing such an electric scooter to the fifth floor without using an elevator for this purpose.
