The Perks of Using a Compact Sport Electric Scooter

Are you looking for an electric scooter that offers enough power to go on most terrains in the city and off-road? Most people will opt for high-performance electric scooters like the EleKtro Ultra 10 Pro, but these types of e-scooters usually weigh more and have a bigger build. As a result, they’re more challenging to carry or transport around the city.

If you want a capable ride without sacrificing portability, consider getting a compact sport electric scooter. This type of e-scooter weighs more and is slightly bigger than a regular compact electric scooter. However, compact sport e-scooters offer better performance than commuter e-scooters.

To better understand compact sport electric scooters, learn more about this e-scooter type, its perks, and the best ones in the market.

What Is a Compact Sport Electric Scooter?

A compact sport electric scooter is a type of e-scooter that’s more powerful than a regular commuter e-scooter but offers less motor power than a high-performance electric scooter. It’s also more portable than an off-road e-scooter but slightly heavier than and bigger than commuter e-scooters.

Ultimately, compact sport electric scooters sit between commuter e-scooters and off-road e-scooters and offer a good cross between the two. Moreover, it fills a gap in the growing demand for more capable commuter e-scooters.

The Perks of Using a Compact Sport Electric Scooter

Should you use this city sport electric scooter? Here are some reasons why many commuters opt for a compact sport e-scooter.

1. Get Better Performance

Compact sport electric scooters generally use a bigger motor and battery than a regular commuter e-scooter. As a result, they produce a higher speed and a longer distance per charge. 

It’s a good option for commuters who want to travel long distances and don’t want to charge their e-scooters frequently. It’s also recommended for riders who want to travel at higher speeds without being too quick, like high-performance e-scooters.

EleKtro reminds riders to only reach the top speed on private property to comply with the law and for their safety.

2. Transport Your Ride Easier

One concern some riders have with buying a high-performance electric scooter is its portability. Since a high-powered ride uses a larger motor, it’s quite heavy to carry up the stairs or transport into your car trunk.

With a compact sport e-scooter, you get a more compact portable electric scooter since it has less weight and smaller dimensions. However, this type of e-scooter may not be the best compact electric scooter since it’s still heavier than portable e-scooters.

3. Travel on Most Terrains

Since a compact sport electric scooter is a cross between a compact portable electric scooter and a high-performance electric scooter, it can travel on most city roads and some rough terrain.

It offers the flexibility to switch between smooth to uneven roads without worrying if your e-scooter can handle it.

4. Receive the Best Value for Your Money

The price of most compact sport electric scooters often sits between the cost of commuter and high-powered e-scooters, making it a sweet spot.

For reference, the EleKtro City entry-level commuter e-scooter costs $799 as of writing, and the EleKtro Ultra 10 Pro high-performance e-scooter costs $2,849. In between this, the EleKtro Ultra 8 costs a regular retail price of $1,499.

So, you get the best of both worlds in terms of performance and price.
