Back to School, The Electric Scooter Way

Back to School, The Electric Scooter Way

It's that time of year again. The summer sun is fading, and the back-to-school season is upon us. But this year, forget about trudging to class with a heavy backpack weighing you down. It's time to embrace a new way of getting around campus - the electric scooter way!

Ride It, Don’t Sweat It 

Skip the bus, train or sweaty biking trips and ride all the way with an escooter! Even the most portable and mid-size escooter will pack a long range battery. Take the Stride, this escooter offers up to 40 miles in range and a powerful 500W motor. Ride it across campus, into town on errands, and back home without breaking a sweat. 

The most common issue with escooter are tire punctures, so choose a model with solid tires if you plan to ride in areas that are not well maintained. Most vehicles can fold but this means more areas that will loosen from road vibrations. If you can, try a one-size steering stem over a telescopic one. Step-on braking fenders place a lot of stress on the mudguard, resulting in frequent breaks. A superior brake system are mechanical drum or disc brakes.

Keep long term repair costs to a minimum by following the daily maintenance checksTake care of your escooter and it’ll last long after your graduation! 

Fold and Carry 

Foldable escooters save space in dorm rooms, apartments, and other vehicles, such as trains, buses, or car trunks. Some escooters pack a large battery so you can skip the bus or train entirely. The escooters in our commuter series are all foldable and portable!

Charge Up Anywhere 

Get ahead in class lectures by charging up your escooter! Fold it down and rest it by any outlet to start charging for the journey home. The charging block can be packed away and plugged in at any pit stop to top off the escooter’s charge.

No Parking Headache 

Park at bike racks or inside the classroom and forget hunting for a parking spot! Always use a bike lock and alarm (optional) to secure the escooter outside. Escooters can fit inside classrooms without taking too much walking space, so try to park it indoors. Leave parking fees and tickets behind! 

Final Thoughts

So, as you gear up for another school year, why not add a little excitement to your daily commute? Ditch the boring walks and embrace the escooter way. Not only will you arrive at your classes in style, but you'll also have a blast along the way. Get ready to scoot into the new semester like a boss!
