If you’ve been following us for a while, you’ll remember the various personal mobility devices we posted, like HYUNDAI’s concept scooter that can mount to your car, or a Self-balancing Scooter designed by Bel&Bel that costs $7,000. However, they are either only at the concept stage or too expensive to afford.
The new EVOLV Sprint is a daily commuting alternative worth considering in terms of both practicality and affordability. Developed by Vancouver-based electric mobility company EVOLV Rides, the Sprint is the most compact and portable model in the EVOLV series so far.
The 36-lb agile ride comes with little space requirements. You can fold or unfold it in seconds, and the handlebars of the Sprint are also foldable for maximum portability. It equips a pneumatic tire and a spring on the front for shock absorption, and a solid tire with a rear brake providing more stopping power. The dual spring suspension system lets the user smoothly ride through large bumps.
With the LCD display on the throttle of the Sprint, you can switch between different modes for a personalized riding experience. Considering the safety of riding at night, the scooter features lighting that travels down the acrylic tube on the side of the deck and dual-LED tail-lights that flash when braking.
The Sprint can travel up to about 19 miles per charge, which is definitely enough for daily commuting and running errands. The scooter has a top speed of 22 mph. Thanks to its IP54 water-resistance, so you don’t have to worry about its durability in a wet and dusty environment.
