The Smartest Electric Scooter for 2019

Inboard Technology, the creator of the best-selling M1 Electric Skateboard, recently announced its newest product, the Glide Electric Scooter Inboard recently raised $8 million in Series A funding to develop pioneering urban transportation solutions.

The Glide Electric Scooter will be the most technologically advanced electric scooter on the market, featuring regenerative braking, a swappable battery, pneumatic tires, a headlight and rear brake lights. The Glide’s wide makes it easy to ride, and the foldable design make it convenient to carry and store also the Inboard’s phone app allows for wireless firmware updates.

The Glider was specifically designed to improve upon the shortcomings of the most popular electric scooters on the market, such as the Xiaomi M365 scooter used by companies like Bird and Lime.

The Glider is one of the few electric scooters that allows user-swappable battery packs. Each battery should be good for 12 miles (20 km) of range.

It also sports a higher power 750W motor, which should help it conquer hills that have stalled out scooters from other manufacturers which are usually rated for just 250 W. On flat ground, the motor is enough to reach speeds of 18-20 mph (29-32 km/h) It is a suitable scooter for heavy riders, which many other electric scooters in the space currently never consider.

The Glider also sports oversized pneumatic tires, which roll over bumps and potholes easier than smaller wheels and help absorb bumps and holes in the road.

But to add an even smoother ride, Inboard has included coilover suspension in the design – another feature rarely found in electric scooters.

“We believe that small electric vehicles are the future of urban transportation,” said Inboard co-founder and CEO, Ryan Evans. “Our goal with the Glide was to create the safest and most innovative scooter on the market. Owning a scooter means you don’t have to worry about finding a rental, and it’s a truly fun way to flow through an urban environment.”

Inboard is offering both a consumer model electric scooter and a fleet version for companies. Inboard say that the Glider can connect to any network, so they’re catering to businesses looking to offer scooter rentals and people wanting to build apps and fleets of scooters. They have also built an open API which will allow developers to build their own apps – the possibilities really are endless. The Inboard Glider is set to be one of the smartest electric scooters released in 2019 and we couldn’t be more excited about it!

Inboard’s Glide Scooter will launch in February of 2019 coming to Europe by March/April 2019, we expect to offer presale orders by February 2019. Full specs and most important price still not confirmed, stay tuned

EGRET New e-Scooters Coming to UK

The New EGRET TEN V2

The Egret TEN, for those who don’t know it, is the “Mercedes” of electric scooters. It has all or almost all: Big wheels inflated in 10 inches for perfect comfort on any surface: with it, even the paving stones disappear. The sober elegance of the brand: A wide wooden stand board dyed on a structure in matt black aluminum alloy. An astonishing compactness for a scooter with large wheels, folded it hardly take more room than the Etwow Scooters.  A 42km range on one charge and a speed that can reach up to 35km/h. To take advantage of all these advantages, it is necessary to make a small concession to the portability with a weight of 17kg.

So what else you might ask?

The new version of the EGRET TEN V2 electric scooter will now feature two disc brakes, front and rear, the cherry on the cake, it is hydraulic at the rear for more precise braking, both more efficient and softer. The other advantage and not least of this type of brakes is that it no longer needs any adjustments. To integrate this second brake handle and remains easily accessible, Egret abandons the trigger at the index finger for a new accelerator with the thumb. The same type as the version Egret GT which also has two brakes.

We will also appreciate his new engine: With 60% more torque, it will delight people who seek a more sporty driving and further improve its behavior even on harsh hills.

The Egret TEN will be connected: An application will be available on your smartphone. Its features have not yet been revealed, but it is hoped that it will include a long-awaited anti-start system.

We also note a few small optimizations such as a stand with automatic folding by spring to avoid forgetting and breaking or a new system of a hook for its lighting.

Talking of accessories, the Egret basket will be compatible with the handlebar of the egret Ten and it will have its own carrying bag coming soon.

The last good surprise is that its price will be the same £1340. ETA mid-September

The New EGRET EIGHT

In its range, Egret has two 6-inch urban scooters and a 10-inch ultra-comfortable scooter. It is quite natural that the brand has decided to complete its offer with an 8-inch scooter so it comes to fight on the grounds of Inokim, Etwow … This intermediate version, the Egret Eight, comes with a front inflatable wheel, shock absorbers front and rear springs for comfort. In terms of features, the new urban electric scooter will have up to 30km of range (36V 8.7Ah) and a speed that will reach 28Km/h on a total weight of 14Kg. Braking will be similar to that of the Egret One GT with has two front and rear drum brakes. We find the large rear mud guard type Egret Ten with integrated lighting great in terms of comfort on rainy days. The display and throttle control will be identical to its big brother the EGRET TEN V2.

Egret Eight: £1040.

With the egret TEN V2 and the Egret Eight, the Germans make it clear that it has heard the dreams of its customers! its evolutions reinforce the EGRET in its position of a high-end e-scooter brand.

Vodafone Germany partnership with Egret Scooters

Vodafone Germany announced a partnership with Egret Scooters by Walberg Urban Electrics to launch a connected scooter. The ElektroRoller2Go will target the vehicle sharing market, with the Vodafone Sim allowing users to locate a free scooter with a smartphone app. The foldable scooter is similar to an electric bike and able to travel up to 22 miles on a single charge.

We want to introduce a completely new vehicle class,” said Florian Walberg, CEO of Walberg Urban Electrics GmbH

Perfect in connection with public transport

The big advantage of the Electric Scooters compared to all other common vehicles is its portability. Without taking more space than a sports bag you can simply fold the scooter and take it with anywhere. The EGRET scooters are not only an alternative to public transport but also the perfect complement.

We assume that scooters will be as much in traffic as the electric bike or the moped,” said Walberg. Unlike big electric scooters (moped), “Egret Scooters ” are ultra mobile and is perfectly suitable for short distances. ” Last Mile”

Zero Emission for the environment

Another advantage of the e-scooter2Go program is to make cities become cleaner. Instead of using your own car every time for inner city short journeys and eternal traffic lights, you can simply swing to the next emission-free electric rocker. This is better for the environment and makes your trip even more fun.

How does it work?

The telecommunication partner wants to equip the scooters with Sim cards to network them. “We want to network everything that has wheels,” said Vodafone boss Hannes Ametsreiter then, you start the app, look for a scooter in your area, use the app to switch on the scooter and enter your target point. The electric scooter can drive up to 21 miles before it has to be recharged and with speeds up to 20 mph gives you plenty of fun and convenient transportation A to B.

Congratulations to the team @ Egret for this extraordinary achievement.

Electric Scooter Maintenance | How to

Electric Scooters still an expensive item and should be properly maintained to ensure that you get the highest possible value from your investment. By maintaining your e-scooter correctly you can extend the life of your vehicle and save yourself the headache of having to pay for replacement parts.

General Cleaning

Keeping your electric scooter clean is essential preventative care. By cleaning your e-scooter after each ride, you will prevent buildup of debris and dirt that could lead to more serious issues.

When cleaning, make sure to not use high power water or jet stream hoses as the water will infiltrate the electrical components and cause damage. Also, you don’t want the water to remove the lubricant from the bearings, which will cause them to move slower and possibly corrode.

Use a toothbrush and warm water to wash away any dirt, sand, or other debris that has gathered under the deck. Once complete, remove all remaining moisture with a dry towel.

Another preventative step that you should take is not to leave your scooter out in the elements. Exceedingly hot weather could cause the battery to degrade as well as disturb the electrical components. Also, any precipitation could harm the electrical components or cause the body to rust.

General Inspections 

The main things that you’ll want to check are all of the bolts, check to see that they are all properly tightened and that nothing is coming loose. For the brake pads, (Egret TEN)  you’ll want to inspect for excessive wear to prevent damage to the tires.

It’s also a good idea to read through the instruction manual that came with your electric scooter and see what other preventative care the company who manufactured the scooter recommends.

Tires 

Most brands of electric scooter comes with hard rubber wheels and does not require to much attention. Inflatable wheels makes the ride much more comfortable but it also requires much care, in your instruction manual, you will find the proper psi for your tires. Check them weekly to ensure that the psi is correct.

Lights

Check all lights works properly, we do recommend to turn the lights always on, even in day light, it’ s really important make your self visible to others .

Battery

Taking steps to prevent battery degradation will result in a much better functioning electric scooter.

Always keep your battery fully charged when not in use. Also, store your battery at room temperature. If the battery is exposed to prolonged heat or coldness, it could result on decreased functioning.

If you notice that your battery is working poorly, perform a full conditioning cycle. To do this, run your battery until it is completely empty and then charge it back to full power. This will fix many small problems, similar to a computer reboot. You may have to do this two or three times to achieve the desired effect.

After riding in wet or rain it’s important to remove all remaining moisture with a dry towel before storage.

Now that you got your head around the basics of e-scooter maintenance, enjoy the ride!

Hub Motors Are Changing The Electric Skateboard Industry

The biggest thing in electric skateboards for 2016 is in-hub motors. Will Hub Motors Redefine The Electric Skateboard Industry Or Is It Just Another Fad?

First we need to break down the two different kinds of motors used for electric skateboards.

Belt Driven electric skateboard motorsbanner979x979belt-motor2

 

Pretty much every board currently on the market with the exception of a few cheap Chinese boards that are filtering in through Alibaba and eBay are all Belt-driven motors. Right now the defacto standard that all other boards are judged against is the Boosted 2000 Dual+ monster. This board has cracked the code and made something that is really fun to ride and still pretty safe. The board is relatively heavy and expensive but from everything I’ve read online, Boosted really stands behind their product. That might change in the future, but for now, they are the yardstick by which other electric skateboard companies are judged.

Advantages of Belt Driven Motors

  • You can get the gearing ratio perfect for your application : Every electric motor has a power range that the motor works best at, the trick is matching that optimum speed with the right sized skateboard wheel for that application (generally under 100mm for street use). Using a belt allows you to do just that.
  • The motor is slightly more sheltered from road debris as it can be moved up and away from the ground.

Disadvantages of Belt Driving Motors

  • You gotta replace the belts : Not that often but if you’re commuting with your eSkateboard every day for extended distances the belts will wear out. If your belt breaks on the road and it’s not a dual drive system then you’re going to be kicking it home.
  • You can’t push it : If the battery dies your board is not going to roll without a whole lot of friction. More than likely you’re going to bend over pick up your board and carry it the rest of the way.
  • On high power boards the motor is still open to the elements : On some of the lower power 24v boards the motor is completely sealed. Every ‘high power’ motors I’ve seen for electric skateboards are almost always open to the elements on one side. This creates the potential for water, debris and metal objects to find their way inside the motor which is going to suck.

 

Direct Drive electric skateboard motors

hub-longboard-motor-pet

The more common electric motors that can be found on most of the more inexpensive electric skateboards in China are Direct Drive (DD) hubs. These motors are out runners (the wheel is what turns) and they have a 1:1 motor ratio. Every time the motor does one revolution, so does the wheel. The new Blink Board by Acton it’s the best example of transition from belt drive to DD Hub

Advantages of DD Hubs

  • Simplicity: The DD design is the simplest you’re going to find. Other than melting the windings or the insulation on the phase wires or overheating there is little you can do to destroy them. Since it is a outrunner there are no brushes to wear down meaning it should run well pretty much forever.
  • Nothing to wear out: No clutches, no gears, no pulleys. The only thing that can fail really is the bearings on the motor. The Manta drive shown above has some pretty beefy bearings on both sides of the wheel so that is pretty unlikely.
  • You can kick it : That’s right the DD design is the ONLY design that allows you to use your skateboard like a normal skateboard when your battery dies. A well designed DD motor will have very minimal cogging effect so it will have little resistance to being pushed.

Disadvantages of DD Hubs

  • Less power than a comparable Geared hub or a Belt drive: Since the geared hubs and the belt driven motors both get to spin a lot faster than the DD motor then you will need MORE watts to make the DD motor feel as powerful as a Geared or belt drive system.
  • Heat dissipation: Since the windings are inside the motor, it is hard for heat to work its way to the outside of the hub unless it has ventilation holes. Such a small motor doing so much work is going to get very hot. There is a chance that this will be an excellent application for ferrofluid cooling, but as far as I know, no one is doing that on a large-scale yet. If you have ventilation holes then you have to worry about water and debris getting inside your motor. Only the least powerful skateboards (less than 400W from China like this one) are sealed, everything else has massive air holes in it for cooling.
  • The Urethane wheel keeps the heat inside the motor.

It seems to me that the biggest problems that skateboard motors face is cooling. While having DD Hub motors might move the industry forward, they still haven’t solved this fundamental problem. What will the future hold for electric skateboards? All I know is that it is an exciting time and that even if the current batch of hub motors fail to live up to users expectations, they are still moving the industry forward in a good way.

Which Adult Electric Scooter you Should Buy?

If you currently look the most popular electric adult scooters, there are two models that dominate the European market: The E-Twow S2 Booster and Egret One-GT .

Both offer an impressive range of functions and both bring you in style from A to B. But what e-Scooter offers you more for your money?

Brand

Walberg Urban Electrics’ EGRET provides high-quality, contemporary and effective answers to the individual needs of urban mobility. Walberg Urban Electrics is based in Hamburg, Germany.

The E-TWOW – “Electric Two Wheels” brand is part of a large international concept, with headquarters both in China and Europe, focused on offering a new era of urban mobility, through their ingenious electric vehicles. A new era in Urban mobility.

Portability

For big urban areas, it is important to have a scooter that can be easily folded up and carried when you get on the bus, the tube or train.

In small, medium size cities could become a real alternative to public transport.

Although the E-Twow Booster and the Egret One GT can indeed be both folded very easily (and similar size),  the E-Twow has a clear advantage when it comes to the weight: At 10.8 kg, the Booster Plus the lightest self-propelled electric scooters on the market.

The One GT on the other hand weighs 13.5 kg. And while you do not notice the weight when driving, one perceives it quite clear when it is time to lift the scooter.

The Booster also have a usefull belt to carry your Scooter on the shoulder, or when belt is removed also a very usefull handhold to carry your scooter in one hand! Carry Belt E-Twow

Both brands have wheeled carrier bags in accesories for long distance transport.

Range

For the usual daily use both take you to destination (and back) without in between recharge.

However, the booster provides a significant advantage in terms of coverage compared to the One GT:

The booster will take you far up to 30 km before you have to recharge it. Compare this with the One GT, which has the range of 25 km, do not forget that this is the range under testing (no headwind, no gradients, minimum stopping and a driver weight of 70 kg).

In the real world, we have 20-25 km from the booster (still more than enough)  and acceptable 20 km from the One GT.

Battery & Power

The One GT is powered by a 36V 8Ah Li-Ion battery and a 250 watt motor.

The booster derives its strength from its 33V 6.5Ah Li-Po battery, coupled with a powerful 500 watt motor.

New Batteries for 2018:

  • 33V 6.5Ah Booster Plus: It is the standalone battery inherited from the powerful Booster S2, perfect for riders from 60kg up to 80kg. Handle hills great and offers a long and trusted cycle life. Max speed 30kpm, total range *25km
  • 36V 7.5Ah Booster S: The extra capacity gives you 5km more range, *30km in total. Max speed 33kph and the more voltage mean more torque. Perfect for riders over 80kg or hilly commuting journeys.
  • 36V 10.5Ah Booster V: 5th-anniversary celebration, *38km range up to 38kph. maximum torque option for demanding routes.

*Real range in our test, 70kg rider.

While both scooters offer similar performance, the booster has a great advantage when it comes to the charging time. The Boosters 3.5 Amp “fast charger” allows you to fully charge the battery in just 2 hours (the fastest time among all electric adult scooters).

The One GT, on the other hand, takes 2 hours to reach 70% but it needs 6 hours until the battery is fully charged.

Brakes

The booster is equipped with two brakes, one recuperation front (KERS, the battery recharges every time you brake) and a manual friction brake rear (like a regular kick scooter, for additional braking force).

The One GT has double drum brake front and back reduces the stopping distance dramatically.

Wheels and suspension

Both scooters have puncture-resistant, solid rubber wheels. However, we are dealing with a case where size really plays a role: With larger 200 mm wheels the Booster offers a much smoother ride than the One GT.

The significantly smaller 160 mm wheels of One GT provide a much bumpy driving experience than the Booster (especially on asphalt and roads with cracks and holes).

Both, however, are equipped with dual suspension, with shock absorbers on the front and rear wheels, which contribute to a softer ride.

Design

We are big fans of the design of the One GT with a sleek, modern look and it’s wider handlebar, the One GT looks awesome it also feels more robust when riding it.

The design of the Booster PLUS is also top-notch. It’s thin footboard and the rear friction brake makes it appear as a conventional scooter for those looking for discretion.

Both are solidly constructed from high quality aluminum. Where we have noticed that the handles on Booster become slightly wobbly while driving than in One GT, the Egret feels solid.

The booster is available in four colors (white, black, green or gray), the One GT in black only.

Extras

A feature that we love the Booster, is the integrated front and rear light

The spotlight is a bright LED lamp that illuminates your path you. And the rear lights are wired so that they light up every time you brake. He also has a Horn-button, which is integrated into the display (Note: the sound of the horn is a bit annoying and we do not use it too often).

The One GT comes with rear and really bright front light plus it has a handy little kickstand.

Both have lots of extra accessories to choose from.

Warranty

Egret offers a full 2-year warranty in all range.

2 years E-Twow warranty.
