with the explorer we did not want to create just another cool gadget. we wanted it to be a real alternative to a car or motorbike and for that, it needs to be extremely long-lasting and durable‘, says wim ouboter, the company’s founder.many people just compare things like range and power when buying an e-scooter. but the things that you don’t see but feel, like high-quality components and materials, are really what makes an e-scooter fun to ride and last long.

built from high-grade aluminum, the micro explorer e-scooter is defined by a telescopic T-bar with foldable handles. its small form, which weighs only 13.5 kg, becomes even more compact when folded down for storage or when carrying. despite its minimal nature, the kickscooter is a comfy ride featuring adjustable front and rear suspension and a choice of full rubber or air tires.

the base of the two-wheeler contains a motor that uses 500 W to power it to a top speed of up to 18.6 mph (30 km/h). taking 3.5 hours to charge from 0-100%, its 280 W battery can last for up to 18.6 miles (30 km). uniquely it features a motorcycle-like twist grip rather than a thumb throttle like most e-scooters. this enables a kinetic energy recovery system to brake as well as help recharge the battery at the same time.

four different riding modes are offered on the e-scooter and can be charged via a built-in display or app. these are pedestrian (250 W, 6 km/h), eco (300 W, 20 km/h), standard (400 W, 20 km/h) and sport (500 W, max speed country specific). the companion app showcases your total distance travelled, turn-by-turn navigation, and trip time. it has a diagnostic mode to improve longevity, and it can also lock the device to improve security.
