You may have heard of it online or in the news, but just what is the EcoReco?
Originally a project hosted on Kickstarter, the EcoReco is finally available to the public, and it's quickly becoming our favorite scooter! And for good reason:
Gone are the big, bulky electric scooters that look like an industrial contraption: the EcoReco looks sleek and professional. What else could we expect from a company in Silicon Valley? The low profile rear fender will keep your ankles dry should you roll through an errant puddle, and the front hand brake will safely bring you to a stop.
Under the proverbial hood of this scooter is a 36v Lithium Iron Phosphate battery and a 250W motor. Lithium Iron Phosphate batteries are non-toxic and less harmful to the environment than other types of batteries, so you can feel good about your ride. The 250W brushless motor doesn't require a chain, transmission, or gears and therefore has less moving parts and less maintenance than most other electric scooters.
The EcoReco scooter is definitely the best thing to come to commuting since sneakers, get yours today!
