As the years go by, alternative forms of transportation become more and more important. Electric bikes, E-Scooters, both of these save money, save our environment, and are generally a fantastic way to commute to and from work or other short distances, but shopping for a well-made, quality one can be tough. Thankfully, Gotrax is here to help with the Rival Folding Electric Scooter. In this showcase, I’ll be discussing the key features of the rival as well as why you might want to buy an alternative form of transportation.
Gotrax Rival Key Features
- Twelve Mile Range and Four Hour Recharge under optimal conditions
This alone makes an E-Scooter an alright option for a daily commute. It’d make a perfect tool to get your kids to and from school quickly and safely. It features a 250w motor with a max horsepower of 15mph. It can handle a max load of 220 pounds meaning it can support anyone from the average adult to a young tween looking for a quick way around the neighborhood.
- Multifunctional LED Display
Unlike cheaper models of scooters, the LED display on the rival covers everything from current speed, your speed settings, battery power, and headlight controls. On the topic of the headlight, the one on the Rival has been upgraded from previous models to an 8.5-degree illumination angle and a 26-foot illumination distance, meaning riders will see obstacles coming well in advance.
- Reactive Braking System
The Rival uses a rear disc and anti-lock braking to ensure a safe stop right when you need it most, even at top speed. Along with that, the 8.5″ pneumatic tires ensure a comfortable ride, no matter the terrain, bumpy or otherwise. Its wide deck allows for larger feet, which if you’re a larger man like myself, you will certainly appreciate.
- Sturdy Craftsmanship
The Rival weighs in at a lightweight 26.4 pounds when fully assembled, and is designed from a sturdy aluminum alloy frame, with rubber wheels. Its 250-watt motor provides high torque with low power consumption, ensuring that as long as you keep it fully charged, the Rival will get you where you need to go within its twelve-mile range.
While the idea of not using your car for all your travel needs can be a bit unnerving to some, Gotraxs Rival offers a smooth transition at a decent price point. It comes ninety-five percent assembled to boot which is excellent quality as putting together anything on Christmas morning is a hassle. All in all this item packs a lot of value, not to mention chipping in to lower your carbon footprint so you don’t have to feel so guilty about going places whenever you like. In addition to all this, switching to electric transportation cuts down on the money you’ll spend on gas, meaning you can put that money towards more important things, like enjoying your life rather than worrying about what’s in your tank. I hope you enjoyed reading this and will give electric transportation a bit of consideration. Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season.
