    How we test

    We put the electric scooters to task on a demanding 10km urban test route that involved high- and low-speed riding, short hills and descents and varied paths you might experience on a commute – from smooth asphalt and clackety brick pavements through to bumpy wooden bridges.

    Along the way we tested the performance of the scooter (50% of overall score) which comprises of stability (20%), handling (20%), braking (20%), range and hill climbing (20% each). We also assessed the how easy the scooters are to use (50% of overall score). The ease of use score is calculated based on vibration (20%), folding and unfolding (20%), usability of controls (30%) and comfort (30%).
