URB-E Black Label Electric Folding Scooter

Small and light enough (at 35 pounds) to carry into the office and still fast enough to get you there on time, the URB-E Black Label Electric Folding Scooter is the future of transportation — or at least some iteration of it. A large 36V lithium ion battery powers its 250W brushless motor and attains a range of 20 miles, hitting speeds of up to 15 mph on the way. The Black Label edition boasts a black on black aluminum and carbon fiber frame plus a sports tuned controller for added torque and acceleration, as well as never flat tires, cross-drilled rear disc brakes, and integrated shock absorbers underneath the seat that smooth out the ride. And each is made in Pasadena, making the likelihood that these burst into flames like a certain hoverboard just about nil.
