Every time you leave your house, do you get behind the wheel of a car, even for the five minute trip to Taco Bell? Alternately, are you living in the city and looking for a better method of transportation than the bus? Offering a compact, efficient, and environmentally friendly transit solution, the EcoReco Scooter helps save you money and the earth some unneeded pollution.
Note: At check-out, you have the option to upgrade to the M5 scooter which has both front and rear suspension for (+$200). You can also add on a Travel Bag (+$110) or extra Charger (+$65)
After the EcoReco M3 Scooter made waves, they went back to see if they could improve upon their innovative design. With one small tweak- adding high performance rear suspension- the M5 emerged, ready to roll over rougher roads without any issue. Even if you’re not crashing through construction sites, the rear suspension makes your everyday ride as smooth as a magic carpet.
Forgoing fuel altogether, the EcoReco Scooter runs off clean electricity, poured straight from the nearest wall outlet. The internal Lithium Iron Phosphate rechargeable battery runs for up to 20 miles on a single charge and only requires four and a half hours to return to full capacity, or two and a half hours for 85% capacity. Though most electric scooters can’t crank out too much speed, the EcoReco gets up to 20 MPH and can be regulated to 7.5 or 12.5 MPH if you need to play it a little safer.
With no chains or gears and a durable aluminum and stainless steel frame, you can be assured of the EcoReco’s resistance against any and all external elements. To avoid flats, the tires are made from solid rubber. Durable against danger and convenient for your commute, the scooter folds up into an easy to carry package that weighs just over 30 pounds and comfortably fits under your desk. Thanks to the hub motor design, even if you run out of juice and have to kick-pedal your scooter, you won’t inflict any damage onto the device.
To ensure that you don’t harm yourself while having the time of your life, the safe-start throttle requires you to kickstart the scooter and gain some momentum before the motor kicks in. If you like to live dangerously, you can also disable the safe-start mechanism. With a low center of gravity and low profile, you have little danger of falling and an easy step off if you have to bail. For even more safety, the two-staged brake cuts the motor before it applies braking in the rear, letting you glide to a stop without looking like or feeling a jerk. Also including a multimode LED screen to display all your vitals, the EcoReco Scooter gives you a throwback to childhood design that has been drastically overhauled for adult level performance.
"The M3 … is plenty light enough to carry with you on a bus, train, or up stairs, yet the scooter is solidly built,"
"You can charge the EcoReco practically anywhere…and charging doesn’t take forever, either,"
"…the fun factor is huge. Trucking around with power, zigzagging about, feeling the rush of acceleration,"
"It is really nice how simple the M3 is. You really don’t have to worry about anything,"
