Personal transportation has seen impressive growth in 2016, with notable brands like Segway releasing smaller products with commuters in mind. A new Indiegogo project is looking to undercut that two-wheeler with its own electric scooter for half the price. OM is a compact folding Razor-look-alike that is currently available for backing with a $250 price tag. This personal transporter is likely to strike a cord with investors because of its slim design and impressive range (up to 20 miles).
The OM eScooter unfolds just like those popular two-wheelers we’ve seen under Christmas trees for some time. It has a seat and two pedals that can be used for manual power, too. Power and speed are controlled by two handlebar-mounted grips, just above the headlight and turn signal. Comfort was at the forefront of this product’s design, according to its Indiegogo page. The shockproof saddle that moves independently of the frame and disc brakes should provide smoother stops in comparison to traditional products. Naturally, the OM is also smartphone-connected, so you can track usage, routes, and more. The limited time $250 Christmas offer is set to run until the 25th with an estimated ship date of February 2017.
OneMile from Beijing, China, comes the OM electronic scooter : World’s best compact folding eScooter. This is lighter, faster and cheap. OM is the perfect scooter for any rider and any situation. The OM eScooter is designed with compact specifications to easily fold and fit in a trunk, carry on a train or bus. It unfolds quickly and effortlessly so you can enjoy your ride to the office, home or a leisure day of riding. One of the most common issues people have with their scooters is dealing with a hard and uncomfortable seat. Thankfully, the professionals at Selle Royal Technologies have developed an amazing selection of exceptionally comfortable carbon scooter seats to enjoy. These seats are lightweight and weigh less than 390 grams. The Kevlar reinforced cover will help keep your seat strong for years to come while protecting it from natural elements.
