The demand for electric scooters is rapidly increasing and it is clear that they are here to stay. They are quickly becoming a popular mode of transport for all kinds of people who are looking for alternative and more convenient ways to travel. There are a variety of e-scooters out there that have been made to meet different needs and wants, such as for leisurely trips to your local coffee shop or for off road adventures. 

To help you choose which e-scooter may be best for you, Skootz has put together a shortlist of e-scooters that are ideal for adults. 

If you have your eye on an e-scooter for leisurely trips around town or for commuting purposes, Skootz recommends the Xiaomi e-scooter. The Xiaomi has been a popular choice, particularly for people in urban areas, since it hit the market in 2016. This scooter is lightweight, compact and has a top speed of 15.5MPH, making it a good option for a first-time scooter buyer. The Xiaomi is also a great starter e-scooter due to the affordable price. The scooter is fitted with 8.5-inch pneumatic tyres, a digital screen and a 300W direct drive wheel motor. It is 13.2kg and can be folded down, making it easy to transport and store at home, at work or anywhere else you might take it. 

If you are on the lookout for a faster, high-performance e-scooter, we recommend that you check out the Kugoo M4 Ultra. This scooter is perfect if you are looking for a little more speed and power. The Kugoo M4 Ultra has a top speed of 30mph and a 15 degree climb angle. It is fitted with an LED screen, an all-round lighting system and a three-speed mode. This scooter is also easy to transport as it has a detachable seat and can be folded down. 

If you are even more adventurous and have a need for speed, we recommend that you have a look at the Proton Pro3. With a top speed of 51MPH, the Proton Pro is perfect for any off-road adventures. This e-scooter is fitted with a dual disk brake system, LED lights, a digital display, 10-inch pneumatic tyres and reinforced handlebars. There isn’t a lot this scooter can’t handle so it is ideal for all your off-road needs. This scooter can also be easily folded down to fit into a car so that you can take it with you on all your ventures. 

All three of these e-scooters would be suitable choices for an adult who is looking for a fun and convenient way to get around.
