Can Adults Ride Electric Scooters?
Things like a person’s height and weight are best considered, particularly given some children may be almost adult sized. Certain brands might be known for producing particular types of products or items of a certain quality or description, but if you’re in Australia, then the best thing to do is contact us for advice on which scooter fits you, and your lifestyle.
What is a BLDC Dual HUB motor?
Hub motors are typically brushless motors (sometimes called brushless direct current motors or BLDCs). So instead of brushes in the motor, there are separate wire coils and an electronic circuit, which makes the motor spin. Since brushes press against the axle of a normal motor, they introduce friction, slow it down, make a certain amount of noise, and waste energy. That’s why brushless motors are often more efficient, especially at low speeds. Eliminating the brushes also saves having to replace them every so often when friction wears them down.
