How good are electric scooters?
Rideables are any small wheeled device with an electric motor, resembling a skateboard, scooter, segway or unicycle. If it’s electric and compact enough to carry or ride on a sidewalk, it’s rideable.
The 21st Century has certainly lived up its high tech hype, being a golden age of technology. And although we might not have the flying cars or true hoverboards that the movie back to the Future predicted. But we do have some damn cool gadgets that come pretty close. High tech innovation has taken the daily commute into our modern age. Whether it’s going to work or cruising the boardwalk, rideable let you get there in style without breaking a sweat.
It used to be that if you wanted to go somewhere without a car you’d have to push or pedal your way to get there. Now in today’s modern world, we have eco-friendly electric alternatives to traditional transportation, and they’re called rideable.
