10 Best Scooters in 2020

Our Pick for the Electric Scooter of 2019

Xiaomi Mi M365

This Xiaomi M365 is our top pick of 2019 for the following reasons:

  • the perfect scooter for commuters
  • price range accessible to most
  • a strong community built around it
  • parts are easily accessible,
  • well-built to begin with

Xiaomi deserve it and nobody should take that away from them.

We’ve reviewed most scooters on the market, and have tested them in real-world scenarios.

With that said, all our reviews are written after thorough research and analysis on products, that can take days of work to come down to a conclusion.

Our results are based on live tests, objective data, and expert opinions.

We will not be rating them against each other, reasons being that it is really subjective. Keep in mind, that if a scooter is featured here, they are all top-performers.

You should buy this scooter if...

  • You are a commuter and is only to get to your daily activities within a radius of 10miles
  • you have a limited budget and want the most out of it
  • you are okay with only riding at a maximum speed of 16 mph (By far enough for me).
  • you plan to put it in the trunk of your car because the scooter is foldable.

You should not buy this scooter if...

  • you live in a pothole city, as it doesn’t have a suspension and you will feel every bump. 
  • you weight over 220 lbs, the Swagger 5 is a better choice, supports up to 320 lbs.
  • you plan to use it during the winter
