Canadian startup Alpine Riding has introduced what is claimed to be the most advanced electric scooter ever. A-Ride has an unusual design and versatility, which allows you to use it in different conditions - from quiet city walks to extreme off-road races in bad weather.
A-Ride is devoid of any seat and provides only a standing position during the ride. The user stands on a special platform, and due to the unique design and low center of gravity, high stability is achieved, which allows you to make even sharp turns without losing balance.
The scooter uses an electric motor with a power of 1000 watts. According to the creators, it is so powerful that they had to limit the maximum speed at 32 km/h to meet American safety standards. However, in other regions where there are no such strict restrictions, you can unblock up to 56 km/h. It is stated that it is possible to ride a roller coaster with an angle of 30 degrees without problems.
On a single charge, the A-Ride can travel up to 80 kilometers, and a full charge takes 5 hours. The scooter is equipped with a 3.5-inch display that displays speed, distance covered, battery charge, time, and other information. The built-in USB port allows you to charge your smartphone while driving.
You can order an A-Ride electric scooter at Indiegogo for about $2,595. Deliveries are expected in September this year.
