Electric Scooters



The electric scooter is a rechargeable vehicle that has two or three wheels, not to be confused with the mobility scooter that the elderly use. Compact electric scooters are an updated version of a skateboard. An electric scooter is not only a fun way to get around town, but also a great source of exercise and fun times.

Swagway X1 Self Balancing Electric Unicycle Two Wheels Scooter

The Swagway X1 is made in two cool color choices: black or green color; and has two wheels with a long central platform that you balance upon. It’s priced at around $400, and the manufacture promises it’s the fastest and lightest self-balancing scooter around.

You’ll be able to perform turns with ease, and climb up inclines to fifteen degrees. The Swagway X1 runs at ten miles per hour. You’ll be able to travel twenty miles on just one charge.

It’s easy to learn how to ride the Swagway X1. Lean your body forward as it’s moving. You’ll soon learn to keep your balance, and steer around corners. This scooter is backed by a one year warranty.
