“Every next level of your life will demand a different version of you.”
There are always levels to anything, and at every different level, you will need to know the rules of the game in order to perform well. At some point, you will need to level up, but all at your own pace.
Electric scooters roll in the same way, you must determine your level in order to know what to ride on. You have four (4) choice levels: Entry-Level, Intermediate-Level, Professional-Level, and Legendary-Level.
Ride Hub Australia, Home of Electrified Beasts (E-Rides) has just the perfect article for you to read. We call this the Buying Guide, of course, for your convenience. Here, we will go through each level to help you decide the electric scooter category you are in. We will even include a table below on the different range of specs for each level.
Entry-Level Electric Scooters
Rider Level: Beginners
Entry-level electric scooters are the basic, single motor e-scooters that are lightweight and easy to carry. They usually have smaller motors, shorter ranges, and lower top speeds than more advanced models, but they are still a great option for short commutes or recreational riding just around town. Entry-level e-scooters are perfect for short to medium distances on flat terrain and have maximum portability.
Entry-level electric scooters are also typically affordable and easy-to-use electric scooters because they are beginner e-scooters, perfect for the youth and students but not limited to them. Entry-level electric scooters are particularly popular among young professionals and city dwellers too, who are looking for a convenient, cost-effective, efficient, and eco-friendly way to get around.
Intermediate/Long-Range Electric Scooters
Rider Level: Advanced
Intermediate/Long range e-scooters are typically e-scooters that have a longer range per charge than entry-level models. They are more advanced e-scooters and have higher specs. These e-scooters usually have more powerful motors too, sometimes even two, and have larger battery capacities, allowing them to travel greater distances before needing a recharge.
Long-range e-scooters are the best option for long distance rides or long recreational riding to explore town. Designed with bigger wheels, at this level, the e-scooters may most likely be capable of riding on challenging terrains like uneven roads, mud, bricks, and gravel roads. All thanks to the highly resistant rubber tires most long-range e-scooters have, which is what makes it non-slip, anti-skid, and shock–absorbing, offering a comfortable ride that prevents leaks and damages to the tires. This is why it is important to determine which brand and model of e-scooter fits you best. Ride Hub is here to help find the best e-scooter for you, almost like it was customized just for you.
Most riders who choose this level are advanced riders who want more power and speed and are able to maneuver a long-range, power-filled e-scooter. These can be older riders, leaning more on the working class, and definitely speed lovers.
When it comes to portability, at this level, the e-scooters can still fall under portable (for the able-bodied) however because these e-scooters may carry single to dual motors, they are heavier due to their increased power and performance.
Performance Electric Scooters
Riders: Experienced, wild side explorers
Thrill-seeking, adventure-looking, risk-takers, and even adrenaline-junkies (depending on the level of thrill they crave) are riders for the performance electric scooters.
Performance e-scooters are designed for riders who want a more powerful and faster ride, with the possibility to ride all kinds of terrains. These e-scooters definitely have way more advanced features than entry-level and intermediate/long range models and are often used by riders for recreational, outdoor-adventure purposes.
The price range is always on the higher side for performance e-scooters because of the top-notch specs they carry that provide a smoother, longer ride. Robust, strong, and heavy are just a few words to describe these kinds of e-scooters. Performance e-scooters are particularly popular among speed enthusiasts.
While you may take your performance e-scooter wherever you want to go, more or less, it’s mainly used for the great outdoors.
Legendary/High-Performance Electric Scooters
Riders: Experienced, wild side explorers
Legendary or high-performance e-scooters are the top-tier models in the e-scooter market, designed for riders who demand the highest levels of speed, power, and performance. These legendary, high-performance e-scooters are typically used for professional or competitive purposes, or by experienced riders who want the most advanced technology and features available.
Riders are also thrill-seeking, adventure-looking, risk-takers, and even adrenaline junkies (depending on the level of thrill they crave).
The price range is definitely on the higher side also for these high-performance e-scooters, because of the top-notch specs they carry that provide an adventure in a ride.
It’s important to note that these are general ranges, and specific models may have different specifications. Additionally, some e-scooters may fall between categories, and there may be some overlap in specs between different categories.
Here is a table of the typical specs for different categories of e-scooters:
