CityGo Urban E-Scooter
Why walk when you can drive? Congestion, for one, is a compelling answer to that rhetoric. The CityGo Urban E-Scooter is one way to fight traffic without giving up your freedom to hop on a bus, metro, or cab as a pedestrian. This electric scooter folds and unfolds in seven seconds and rolls along like a suitcase when you’re walking. Get on it, though, and it’ll attain speeds of up to 15.5 miles per hour for a total of 12.5 miles per charge (or 17.5 mph and 16 miles of range for the Pro model). There’s no throttle to speak of; instead, use it like you would any normal scooter by pushing off the ground with one leg to get the motor spinning and matching the speed you attained. To slow down, tap on the brake over the rear wheel, which also recaptures that energy to recharge its batteries. It’s also got both LED brake lights and headlights, Bluetooth for adjusting settings and scooter diagnostics, and has enough power to climb hills with inclines of up to 10 degrees.
