The draw back to its sturdy construct is that it’s very heavy. Make no mistake, weighing in at 72.89 lbs this scooter is a hell of rather a lot heavier than even the heaviest of folding electrical scooters, and it’s additionally a lot heavier than most bikes. We struggled to hold it up stairs, and it actually wasn’t a one-person job. On the plus facet, it is ready to carry a passenger who weighs as much as 220lbs.

Backside line

We’re a bit miffed by the dearth of reflectors or the inclusion of a break mild with the EcoSmart Metro HD Electrical Scooter. We additionally suppose that having the ability on/off change positioned on the backside of the scooter is fairly inconvenient. Its heavy weight can be one thing to take into accounts.

With all of that mentioned, there’s no query that the EcoSmart Metro HD Electrical Scooter presents an excellent clean and enjoyable trip. We do really feel that its use case is considerably restricted because it doesn’t provide any actual well being advantages within the type of a exercise. Nonetheless, we envision it to be particularly interesting to individuals with disabilities or anybody who desires a enjoyable solution to get round city that includes extraordinarily minimal effort.
