What is an electric scooter? Tips for scooter parts replacement

by Aurora Br. Consultant

An electric scooter lets you zoom from A to B in style without putting in as much effort as you would on a regular bike or a push scooter. Electric scooters don’t come cheap, although they offer a fun way to travel around and won’t take up too much space at home. Although an onboard motor and foldable design make e-scooters less strenuous and arguably more convenient than a bike, you can’t ride them everywhere.

Are electric scooter legal?

           

You can legally use an electric scooter on private land (not accessible to the public) as long as you have permission from the land owner. It’s illegal to use electric scooters on public roads and pavements. If you get caught using an electric scooter illegally, you could face a fine and penalty points on your driver's licence, if you have one. Your electric scooter could also be impounded as well.

How do electric scooter work?


Electric scooters are very simple to ride and maintain, and that’s why they are so useful and fun. While they are a modern piece of transportation technology, they are still not very complex in the way they work compared to most vehicles.


When the rider uses the throttle, electric signals go from the throttle through wires to the controller, which instructs the battery to release electric energy to one or two motors in the wheels. The motor transforms that energy into a movement of the wheels, and the scooter moves forward.

The motor is of equal importance to the battery. Its power and quality will determine a lot about the scooter’s performances, primarily its speed, its torque, its ability to climb, to ride, and its range to a lesser extent.

            

The wheels themselves are an obvious part of the scooter. They come in two basic types – air-filled and solid. Some scooters will also have shock absorbers for a more comfortable ride. We will go into more detail about wheels later.

            

Either one or both wheels can have brakes. Brakes can be electronic, mechanical with a disc or hydraulic, or activated by pressing the foot against the rear fender.

           

Other than plastic and silicone, not many other materials are used in building the scooter. he frame of the scooter is often foldable.

            

Most electric scooters have at least one headlight and one or more smaller lights in the rear to serve as brake lights too.
