Why weight limit is a specification that is so important when purchasing an e-scooter? 

In today’s blog post we will be discussing the weight limit on e-scooters. Most of our models have a weight limit of 120kg but we do have models that go up to 150kg. 

Everyone purchases an e-scooter for different reasons, but if your goal is to carry something every day or to bring your shopping back home you should take into consideration that you need a higher weight limit scooter.  

When purchasing an e-scooter, please check your weight plus whatever you want to carry and give it at least a 10kg difference between your amount and the scooter’s weight limit. Just below that condition, you will be sure that nothing will happen to your e-scooter due to weight. If you also always carry a backpack, remember to put that weight into account as well. 

Scooters were not designed to take two people however we do know that sometimes is handy just make sure that the two people’s weight is not superior to the scooter’s weight limit
