If a car is out of the question, public transportation too unreliable, and a bike just not your style – then using a Scrooser to get around town may be the option for you.
A kind of hybrid bicycle, kick-scooter, and Vespa, this large two wheeled scooter combines the energy generated by your own kicks with an integrated electric motor to help get you around the city without the hassle. That hidden 500 watt motor is the real heart of this unique ride. As soon as you turn the Scrooser on, the motor starts turning the wheels. The harder you kick, the harder the motor works to keep up, matching you all the way up to 25 miles an hour. And thanks to an integrated 36 volt lithium-ion battery, it can keep up for up to 34 miles of range. Have a long commute? No worries. For easy charging once you’ve reached point B, you can pull out the battery and bring it along with you to juice up in the office. Prices start at $5,125. [Purchase]
