Folding e-scooters are nothing new, but you always need to carry them in your hands between rides. Also, it is not safe to park bikes and cycles on the street in many cities, even if you secured them with locks. So, packing your bike and carrying them with you wherever you go is an easy solution.
That’s where the MiniFalcon Electric scooter comes. It fills that gap by being the e-scooter that is fast, powerful, and, most importantly – compact enough to fit in a backpack.
MiniFalcon is the first packable high-performance electric scooter that folds up into a 23-inch long package and fits in a backpack, thanks to the telescopic steering pole, collapsible handles, folding rear wheel assembly, and a relatively small deck.
When folded, this packable electric scooter’s dimensions shape up as 23.6 in (60 cm) high, 13.4 in (34 cm) long, and 5.9 in (15 cm) wide. On the other hand, when unfolded and ready to ride, the scooter extends to 45.6 in (115.5 cm) high, handlebar width is 17.3 in (44 cm), and wheel to wheel measures 24.4 in (62 cm).
In either (folded or unfolded) conditions, the scooter weighs 17.85 lb (8 kg). It is manufactured with aerospace-grade anodized aluminum, which ensures a sturdy yet lightweight structure. The lighter weight lets it quickly accelerate and quickly stop in a notice, while the material strength lets MiniFalcon hold up to 220 lbs with zero deformity. The e-scooter can travel both in plains and hills with equal ease.
The e-scooter comes equipped with 5.2 Ah Li-ion batteries that are good for 9 miles (15 km) per 2-hour fast charge. Additionally, the MiniFalcon features a Kinetic Energy Recovery System, which recharges your battery on downhills and while you break, keeping you on the road longer.
MiniFalcon boasts puncture-proof polyurethane tires, and its 250 W rear-wheel motor has a top speed of 15.53 mph (25 km/h). Furthermore, it comes with three-speed gears that allow riders to select a high-torque, low-speed gear for 15° hill climbing through a high-speed gear for zipping through town.
An ABS anti-locking system prevents your wheels from locking up and allows you to maintain steering control even if you suddenly slam on your brakes. Riders can also look forward to a smoother ride thanks to shock absorbers front and rear. Along with all these features, a digital handlebar display is there on the handlebar that keeps the user informed of key system info.
MiniFalcon has recently completed its crowdfunding campaign on Indiegogo, and the shipping is estimated to start in November. Visit the company website for more information.
