Lowest price Product: SWAGTRON Swagger Pro Adult Electric Scooter with Extended Range, Lightweight Carbon Fiber Body; Easy Fold-N-Carry Design (Black) - $0.00

Description and Review

The Swagger electric scooter is one of the newest offerings from skateboard manufacturer Swagtron. Known for their high quality long boards, the company has grown and expanded to enter the realm of personalized motorized vehicles. The Swagger and the Swagger PRO are the first models in their new scooter product line.

Features

Swagtron advertises its Swagger electric scooter as the world’s lightest electric powered scooter due to the carbon fiber frame that weighs just 17 pounds. While this claim may or may not be true, one thing is for sure. This portable little scooter is not just a child’s plaything. Designed for commuter use, the Swagger will easily carry you from point A to point B, as long as your route is smooth, paved, and short.

The Swagger scooter will travel for up to 15 miles, about an hour, on a single charge while carrying a full sized adult. The 250 W motor provides the strength to cruise along at a good pace, about 15 mph. Battery recharging takes just 1.5 hours using a standard household outlet and included recharging cable, so you can easily power up for another trip around town while you toil away at your desk.

The Swagger is very easy to learn and operate. A push button throttle with up and down arrows allows you to easily adjust your speed while you ride, without that annoying vibration that a twist grip throttle can give. The thumb activated brake on the left handlebar lets you coast to a stop gently and safely. A high contrast control panel displays speed, battery life, and an odometer. A built in cruise control sets the speed for longer trips, allowing you to relax and enjoy the scenery.

The body of the scooter is made of heavy duty, carbon fiber which is lightweight and strong. The scooter weighs less than 20 pounds, making it easy to transport. The one touch folding frame shrinks it down to the size of a skateboard, allowing you to carry the Swagger scooter on public transportation without inconveniencing other passengers. The folding frame is even lightweight and compact enough to be approved for airline travel.

The Swagtron Swagger scooter is designed for use by riders from teen to adult. The non slip deck is wide enough for comfort and the handlebars are high enough for riders six feet tall. The Swagger can easily carry riders up to 250 pounds over smooth, paved surfaces.

Strengths

The Swagtron Swagger electric scooter is lightweight, portable, and fun. It provides a quick ride on a heavy-duty carbon fiber frame. The non slip deck is sturdy and wide for comfort. The handlebars are high enough for a 6 foot tall individual. The operation is as simple as pushing a button. The 24V lithium ion battery recharges quickly. A bright, LED control panel keeps you informed of speed, battery life, and miles traveled. Best of all, this scooter folds down for storage and transport.

Weaknesses

While the scooter is advertised to travel up to 15 mph, most reviewers said it does not actually achieve that speed. Another concern is the low quality of the polyurethane wheel on the back. It quickly wears out and is difficult to replace. The brake control is just a piece of plastic that you press down on. It looks like it would break very easily.

Great Value Adult Scooter

The Swagtron Swagger is a decent entry into the electric scooter market from a newcomer. Some of the features of the scooter, like the lightweight frame and folding body, make it a front runner. Other features, such as the awkward push button throttle and poorly designed rear wheel, show that the manufacturer is a novice scooter maker. For the money, you will be hard pressed to find a better adult scooter with the these stats.

    I live in Seattle, which rains 9 months out of the year. My daughter tried to use a bike her 1st year at U.W. It’s a big campus and it saved lot’s of time by having a bike. But it’s also very inconvenient to ride and take care of the bike on rainy days!

    I spent lots of time online to try to find her an electric scooter — something lightweight with good reviews and not overpriced. With not many choices out there, I purchased this Swagtron (from a local store).

    It’s been 13 months now and we are still very happy with this purchase! Although it’s advertised as “not for rain”, for 8 months, she rode it 5 days a week (rain or shine) 2.5 miles each day. Light mist or pouring down rain, it still works perfectly. She protects the handle bar and charging port from the rain with a plastic wrap.

    + PROS: Lightweight, easy to fold up, fast enough.
    - CONS: Have to protected from rain. Has had no issues with the scooter besides one screw that has to be tightened every other week or so.
