The Unagi Model One is probably the best all-around scooter money can buy you. It’s easily foldable, relatively light, has a decent range and speed, plus it also looks pretty good compared to some competitors with a sleek futuristic design.
Made of aluminium and carbon fibre, you’ve got a sturdy scooter that’s both suitable for commuting and for joyriding – as long as it’s on proper roads. The small wheels don’t lend themselves to any kind of off-roading, but other than that, you’d struggle to find a better all-rounder on the market.
- Aircraft aluminium frame
- Self-standing feature
- Range: 24km
- Max Speed: 24kmh
- Weight: 12.7kg
The Glion Dolly is a prime choice for scooter commuters – it has decent speed and range, with a lightweight build. It also offers a quick self-stand feature that makes it easy to stop, grab coffee, and then continue.
Featuring a simple design that won’t stand out among other scooters, the Dolly is a great scooter, especially for office workers. When folded up, it’s easy to transport and roll, meaning you won’t need to lift its full weight to store it away – and it’ll even fit into decently sized lockers if you don’t want to leave it out!
- Particularly long-range ride
- Bluetooth connectivity
- Range: 65km
- Max Speed: 30kmh
- Weight: 19.1kg
This Segway scooter is a great option for several reasons – not only is it one of the most high-capacity scooters out there, suitable for heavier riders or those who need to transport reasonable amounts of weights such as backpacks or shopping bags.
Remarkably, it also has some extra features such as Bluetooth connectivity and an LED display. Add to that cruise control and its unusually long range and you’ve got a solid scooter for longer trips on your hands – and from the pioneer of scooter brands no less!

- Sized for teens or shorter adults
- Suitable for beginners
- Range: 16km
- Max Speed: 24kmh
- Weight: 19kg
This smaller-sized scooter is ideally suited for smaller riders such as teenagers or shorter adults – it’s however a bit too big for kids. It’s a great choice for those who want to get their kids a gift they can occasionally borrow on the side.
Another great thing about this scooter is that it assembles and disassembles extremely quickly, meaning it’s not only ready to ride in minutes, but you can pack it up again pretty easily as well.
- Seat and basket fixtures
- Large wheels
- Wide bamboo deck
- Range: 19km
- Max Speed: 28kmh
- Weight: 29 kg
This scooter is particularly great for the movement impaired. Since it has a seat, you don’t have to stand on it while you ride, meaning if you have joint pain or can’t stand for long, you can still scoot on this model! That said, this scooter is heavy – you won’t be able to just lift it like others!
It’s also ideal for small shopping trips as it has a small basket behind the seat for a shopping bag or handbag. Between these convenience features and the wide foot deck, the EcoSmart Metro is an ideal choice for anyone who is looking for a comfy trip or who has mobility issues!
- Custom built on demand
- Slick racing tires
- Lots of carbon fibre used
- Range: 70km
- Max Speed: 129kmh
- Weight: 31.3kg
This unique-looking scooter isn’t just an eye-catcher, it’s also incredibly fast with a huge range. It markets itself as a ‘hyper scooter’ for good reason. It is one of the fastest models on the market at the moment. It has a superpowered motor compared to just about every other model out there.
Combine that with the high-quality build and you’ve got a recipe for success. While the speed this scooter has is overkill for most commutes, it’s the ideal companion for thrill-seekers and racers or those who just want to leave their coworkers in the dust when it’s time to go home!
