Something you may not know, in late 2018, the rental company Lime rolled out its contemporary micro-mobility invention, the electric scooter for adults in Australia, which was a huge success.  Now everyone is out to get one!

Components of an Adult Electric Scooter

Motorised scooters are similar to regular scooter in their overall look and constructs, with a frame or structure that has wheels, brakes, handlebars, and in some designs have a seat.

Familiarising yourself with the basic components and different parts of an electric scooter can help you choose the best fit for you and your needs.

Electric Scooter Frame

The shape of the scooters vary, in thickness and style with the frame being a defining feature.  Some of people choose their e scooter for a particular frame design. Frames made of thicker steel are obviously more durable though they may be heavy for some adults.  There are also foldable frames that can be stored with ease in quite small spaces. The good part to this is that they are so compact that you can take them inside your local cafe, office or friends house.

Electric Scooter Batteries

The battery of an electric scooter for adults Australia works in the same way as rechargeable lithium ion batteries.  From a single charge you can scoot approximately 8-16 kilometres, roughly 30-40 mins scooting time. To recharge your e scooter, simply plug into a standard wall outlet for approximately 8 hours and recharge while you work, relax or meet up with friends.

The battery lifetime is all dependent on its manufacturer, and is suggested that you might want to recharge it after each ride and the battery can last for up to 2-3 years.  Remember that any battery can wear out, if you don’t make use of it every now and then.

Weight can also vary as there are electric scooters for adults specifically designed to be lightweight starting at 11 kgs, while other motorised scooters can weigh as much as 38 kgs.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

The disc brakes are integral components that provide you with a safe stop even when reaching top speeds. Motorised scooter have rear and front brakes for optimum braking performance.


Forks provide a means to hold the bearings and allow the e-scooter to steer.  They are made of thick, or thin, steel constructs and are attached to the handlebars of the electric scooter.

Belt or Chain

These components make it possible for your electric scooter to move about, from the power created by the electric scooter battery which is then transferred to your wheels.

Chains are considered more durable than belts, however they are generally noisier ( just use a little bit of oil to help with that).  The chains should last longer than the belt, with less maintenance.

Electric scooter Tyres and Wheels

There are two types of tyres for adult electric scooters, inflated air tyres and solid rubber tyres.

The inflated air tyres are made of rubber with an inner tube are ideal for offroads and rough terrains because they are shock absorbent.  Of course, if there are sharp objects around be careful because they can puncture and deflate, just like any rubber tubed tyre.

As for the solid rubber tyres, they have less shock absorbent qualities because they are solely made of and filled up with solid rubber. Nonetheless, they are can not be puncture or popped.
