I’ve long been someone who enjoys a scooter and skateboard, and have even tried some hybrid devices, but none have ever really caught my attention. The Cali Drift brings the joys of a skateboard with a two-wheel front design with the drifting action of a scooter by only having a single wheel in the back. Powered by a 250W motor, this could be a really fun toy for kids and adults alike.
The Cali Drift is capable of speeds up to 15.5MPH and can ride an incline of up to 8 degrees. The motor drives the rear wheel and you can easily cut and carve in ways previously not easily attainable on regular two-wheeled scooters, thanks to the pivot-style handlebar.
The handlebar can easily adjust in height so no matter how tall you are, this scooter will fit you. The U-shaped handlebar provides a plethora of grip options so you can easily ride how its most comfortable for you.
If you want to transport or store the Cali Drift, that’s easy because the handle bars can simply fold down providing a very low profile design.
You can change the throttle by a thumb lever and topping is easily taken car of by both hand lever-activated electronics and manual heel brakes. There’s a griptape on the deck to give you sure footing and vibrant colors inspired by the coast.
You can go a total of 9.4 miles on a single charge, giving you the ability to ride around town or up and down the beach for hours without worry of running out of battery.
COSTA MESA, CA (Aug 6, 2018) – SWAGTRON™, the undisputed leader in electric rideables, today introduces the Swagger Cali Drift, a three-wheeled electric scooter that carves like a longboard, blurring the lines between the two to create an entirely unique experience.
A powerful 250-watt electric motor drives the rear wheel, and the two front wheels, stem and handlebar pivot on a carriage system allowing the rider the maneuverability to cut and carve in ways previously impossible on traditional two-wheeled scooters. The Cali Drift is capable of speeds up to 15.5 mph and inclines up to 8 degrees with a range of up to 9.3 miles on a single charge.
The stem is easily adjustable to fit riders of a wide range of heights, and the U-shaped handlebars provide a multitude of grip options for maximum comfort and control regardless of riding style. The stem of the Cali Drift also folds and locks in place for easy storage and transport.
“Electric scooters and skateboards blur the line between transportation and recreation more than ever,” says Chief Marketing Officer Jason Wakefield. “The Cali Drift epitomizes that and combines the two for a unique yet familiar experience that’s an absolute blast no matter how old you are.”
Power is applied via an intuitive thumb lever, and stopping duties are taken care of by both hand lever-activated electronic and manual heel brakes. The spacious deck is covered with griptape for sure footing, and features vibrant colors inspired by the coast.
The Cali Drift retails for $480 and is available now at Swagtron.com for an introductory price of $399.99.
