Of course, heavier electric scooters are better than lighter ones because they are much more stable and allow for safer and more secure riding. If too light, one day you'll fly away with your child and their electric scooters.

So how do I decide between a hefty and a light electric scooter?

The truth is that each has advantages of its own.

Knowing the benefits and drawbacks of lightweight and heavyweight electric scooters in advance will help us decide which to purchase!


Pros & Cons of Lightweight electric scooters


Portable for travel
Electric scooters were first designed to be portable mobility aids. Many manufacturers have been making increasingly lighter and more portable electric scooters so that you can carry them for two turns without needing to take a breather.

I believe that heavy persons or professional chauffeurs should use scooters exceeding 15 kg.


Women can transport
Lightweight electric scooters typically weigh the same as two 5L drums of peanut oil. Any heavier would make it more difficult for women to climb stairs using only their hands.


Cool design
Even if the scooter's exterior does not suit your aesthetic, its small and endearing design allows you to decorate it with your favorite stickers. It's extremely nice when you whoosh and leave the shadow.



Bad range
Since the battery is typically mounted inside the stand pole of lightweight electric scooters, their capacity is constrained, and their range is typically just 30 or 20 kilometers. If you plan to travel further, bring a charger.


Discounted comfort
Small wheels, a compact chassis, and, of course, only the front wheels of lightweight scooters absorb shock. however, the ride was uncomfortable.

Additionally, there are typically no disc brakes, which makes riding difficult.


Inadequate load capacity
Typically, the pedal material is only somewhat thick. It is therefore better to check to determine if the load capacity can easily carry you. You might occasionally carry a bag and then bring it back filled with.


About the pros and cons of heavy electric scooters, you can do the opposite of light electric scooters.

So, the pros of heavy scooters are:

  • Stable riding
  • Longer range
  • More comfortable and good to control
  • High load capacity

While the cons are:

  • Heavy - not portable to commute
  • Women may feel harder to carry


So weigh the advantages and disadvantages of light and heavy e-scooters, and decide which is most important to you. Is it now obvious when to buy a lightweight or a heavyweight scooter?


Please remember to check the maximum load capacity before purchasing a lightweight electric scooter.


Of course, you can look at the following models if you are strong and want to get a heavier electric scooter. (20-25kg)
