The e-scooter revolution is here! Cruise for fun around your neighbourhood or use it to shave off some time on your daily commute to work or school. The Glider’s reinforced IP54 water resistant frame allows it to support riders up to 220lbs and minor splashes.
Certainly, Gotrax Glider not looks like an electric scooter. It has a fairly minimalist, streamlined design that looks like a traditional kick scooter. There are three colour choices (pink, red, and black) give it an exceptional visual flair and one clean build. The handlebar folds inward with just a press of a lever, making the Glider compact for easier transportation and storage. Folded down, it’s enough to fit into large rucksacks or to stick between your legs when travelling inside buses or trains.
With a weight of only 17 lbs. – it’s a bit lighter compared with other electric scooters. The Glider is equipped with a 5.5-inch front wheel and a 5-inch rear. The tires are lined with solid rubber with a high-quality tread that provides good grip. Has brilliant LED lights in the front to see the road at night. These lights can be easily turned on/off using the switch conveniently located on top of the handlebar. An additional option from this button lets you switch between two different speed modes. A single LED indicator means that the scooter is set in Slow Mode, restricting the speed to around 9 to 10 mph. An additional touch from the button switches to top speed to hit the 16 mph speed limit. The slow speed setting works fine when you ride along with crowded areas or you need to conserve battery power.
The Gotrax Glider has a 250W engine, located inside the front wheel. The powerful engine gives 220-lb (100 kg) load capacity, enough even for larger adults letting faster commutes, easier, and a lot of fun. It can also climb up sloped surfaces with up to 15 degrees. The Glider works with a kick-to-start system to prevent accidental take-offs and needs a little push to start. This mechanism’s really useful to allow to conserve energy and start up smoothly. The use of non-pneumatic wheels helps to keep the Glider maintenance-free. However, the rigidity of the wheels and lack of a suspension system means that you will feel the rattle over a stony road. It means you can get the most out of the Glider Electric Scooter driving on smooth surfaces and paved roads.
Two different kinds of brake are available: an electric brake that can be triggered with a button on the handlebar and a foot brake activated by the foot near the rear wheel. The brakes are very responsive and let to stop easily. To keep you on the scooter, the footplate of the Glider is wide enough for most adults and is lined with a high-quality non-slip surface.
Good behaviour is to keep the Gotrax Glider fully-charged at all times if you intend to use it as a regular means of personal transportation. The performance will reduce meanwhile the battery is drained. Outfitted with a Li-ion battery that gives it a range of up to 9 miles. In real life, at equal to the other electric vehicles, when you need to ride up inclines and over rough terrain, the battery autonomy will be reduced a bit. Full charge battery takes between 2 to 3 hours. Regenerative battery technology using the electric brake maybe should have helped it extends its range.
The Gotrax Glider is an excellent electric scooter that will suit both kids and adults. It gives the best value for money when used as an aid to regular commutes.
