Electric scooters definitely make for a fun Christmas present. You can zoom around the neighborhood and take short trips to the corner store. The scooter is safe and fun to ride, and it comes with a 300W motor that can boost up to 700W of max engine power to give you higher torque and a more powerful ride.

Maintain control over the scooter with a dual braking mechanism that includes both an electric brake and a mechanical one. There is front shock absortion, which uses heavy-coil suspension on the front wheel to absorb and minimize bouncing while you ride. There are several different lights for both safety and aesthetics. The lighting includes ground effects as you ride, a front headlight, and rear bake lights.

It's also a very lightweight scooter at just 27.6 pounds thanks to being made from aircraft-grade aluminum and a high-density polymer. This makes it easy to carry if you need to move it inside or even to transport in your car so you can take it with you on longer trips. The scooter can support up to 220 pounds and is suitable for ages 18 and up. Enjoy a range up to 15.5 miles and a max speed of 15.5 miles per hour.

The scooter is sold by Consumer Mobility but fulfilled by Amazon, so you still have access to Amazon customer service and policies. It doesn't have a lot of reviews but the few that exist are very positive (opens in new tab).
