Here are two facts that might just blow your mind, firstly, scooters are so much fun and secondly, they are not just for kids, with that fresh information in mind you can now reconsider upgrading your daily commute with the fun and practical GXL V2 Commuter Scooter from Go Trax. This scooter is available in either a Pink or Black design, with a 250 Watt motor and 36V battery that will give you max speeds of 15.5mph and provide you with 9-12 miles per charge (3-4 hours charge time). The large 8.5inch air filled tires have been specifically designed for commuting with pneumatic absorption that reduces the shock caused by bumpy city streets and pavements. The reinforced fortified frame supports riders up to 220 lbs, whilst weighing just 27lbs in return, making it easy to carry up steps and into your home or work space, the frame folds down with a quick activation lever making it easy to store away when not in use (15” x 44” x 6” when folded down).
The speed is adjustable with two gears to choose from, the first gear will let you sit comfortably at 10mph whilst the second gear will get you up to the full 15.5mph, whilst the Cruise Control feature can be engaged by simply holding the accelerator down for 10 seconds and the scooter will automatically maintain the current speed until you brake or accelerate again. The new hand operated electric/disk brake hybrid gives you precise control over your speed without having to move your feet and the new reinforced baseboard and fender provides a stable foundation for your feet. You don’t have to worry about being surprised by running out of juice thanks to the clear LED display which lets you know the battery life as well as the current speed and change speed settings. The GXL V2 has an LED headlight to help keep you more visible in low light conditions, however there are no rear lights only a rear reflector so it is important to get yourself some high vis gear or lights if you are planning to use it in the dark and consider a brighter front light to help you see the ground in front of you.
The GXL V2 is an excellent way to commute, its intuitive to use, making you always feel safe and in control, the adjustable speeds help you get to where you want to be in no time and the hand operated disk brakes are a welcome change to the traditional brake system. RRP £249
