In response to the need for greener urban transport, our mission is to make transport like an electric scooter the new normal in our cities and suburbs.
We are so excited to bring you a website based on real reviews and reporting on portable electric transport. These amazing products have seen a significant rise in popularity in the last few decades which lets us know Australians are beginning to care about their environmental footprint. Not only are they a greener transport option, but they also look fantastic and are super easy to ride. As a bonus, they won’t break your bank!
Maybe you live in the city centre and only need to travel a short distance over flat, paved areas to arrive at work. Or perhaps you live in the suburbs and need to travel further over unpredictable terrain to reach your destination. Whatever your needs, an electric scooter can fulfil them.
Fight the increasing traffic and travel times by swapping to an electric alternative. There are plenty of different wheel, suspension and build options to make your ride smooth, safe and sustainable. An electric scooter is a great option for someone who likes to customise their ride and reduce the amount spent on unnecessary features and extras.
In Australia, the riding conditions for an electric scooter or skateboard can be difficult. You can overcome obstacles such as weather and treacherous terrain with an electric skateboard that’s fitted out for your needs.
Consider the quality of your board before anything else. If you ensure the materials which make up your ride are high quality and well-constructed, you can have a board that will last two or three times longer than other competitors, particularly when off-roading. Not to mention, your board will have that amazing premium feel that creates an unforgettable ride experience.
So, while you may feel hesitant to spend more today, you may well be saving money tomorrow. Opting for quality saves money over time, trust us, we’ve been there!
Skateboarding is an immense amount of fun and it’s incredible to feel the freedom of the breeze on your face. It is, however, important to keep in mind the laws around riding them. If you aren’t familiar with the laws, you might find yourself in a bit of a pickle accidentally and that’s nobody’s idea of a good time.
If you’re hoping to get your hands on a state of the art, hovering pink skateboard or a jet black, NOS-injected levitating board like the ones in Back to the Future, we can only apologise, although that would be SICK!!!!! Whilst these are still currently in the science-fiction space, we do have some pretty decent alternatives to choose from.
The technology within a two-wheeled self-balancing electric scooter (what we call a hoverboard) is so stable and reliable it makes you feel like you’re floating above the ground. These travelling toys are a good fit whether you’re young and adventurous or grown up and feeling nostalgic.
These amazing products first entered the commercial world in 2013 but were quickly found to have some design faults. After a massive overhaul and redesign, the hoverboards were updated and improved. With new safety guarantees and innovative technology, we are free to have more fun than ever on a hoverboard that is also light on the wallet!
Electric Scooter Laws
The laws around riding an electric scooter in Australia depend on the state you’re in. For example, if you’re in Western Australia, you are forbidden from riding them during the hours of darkness whilst in Queensland, you are more restricted by speed and surface. No matter what state you’re in, the laws are there to ensure the safety of both the rider and those around them.
I remember one Friday night out in the CBD hearing a random punter yelling out and carrying on while riding a Lime scooter. As we were having a joke about it, we saw the local constabulary approach him and have a bit of a chat. It turns out the guy was charged with drink driving! We had no idea you could be booked for drink driving on an electric scooter but you absolutely can – it happened right in front of our eyes.
Green Urban Transport
We aren’t just passionate about what we sell, what really drives us is why we sell them. We are committed to changing the world for the better by supporting and making available urban transport that helps humanity and doesn’t hurt the environment. Over the last few decades there have been great steps forward in this area and we applaud anyone who has played a positive part in that journey. The reality is though, there is still a way to go.
We hope you will join us in our mission to make green urban transport the new normal in our cities and suburbs. We believe the products we’re reviewing will assist our groaning ecosystems to flourish once again.
By reviewing electric scooters, skateboards and the like, we are promoting a lifestyle which is sustainable, convenient, and best of all, a whole lot of fun! If you have never hopped onto one of these vehicles, definitely give it a go and experience the rush. You’ll feel a sense of freedom like you’ve never felt before and you’ll be helping to heal our planet at the same time. Visit our new online store today to access an entire range of green urban transport options and make your mark on our world a positive one.
