Folding Electric Scooter
"It eliminates many of the hassles of a conventional scooter because you can easily take it with you wherever you go," says Maneth. "It disassembles in three parts, allowing you to store it in any car, RV or boat. The rig can also be folded up into one piece like a suitcase on wheels, allowing you to check it in with any airline."
Made in Israel, the Easy Travel scooter has a carrying capacity of 300 lbs. and a range of 8 to 10 miles. It measures 41 in. long, 22 1/2 in. wide, and 34 in. high. The unit disassembles into the rear frame, front column, and battery pack. No bolts or screws are required for disassembly. Total weight is 65 lbs., with the heaviest part weighing 27 lbs.
"It has great engineering and workmanship," says Maneth. "Folded weight without the battery and basket is 45 lbs. By folding the scooter up, you can easily store it in your closet or stand it up next to your table in a restaurant."
Sells for $2,195.
