GOTRAX, a Denver-based brand of electric rideables driven by imagination and innovation with a focus on science and education, expands its line beyond hoverboards today with the introduction of the GLIDER folding electric scooter.
Engineered to be a fun and versatile mode of transportation for kids and adults, the GLIDER features an ultra-fast fold-and-release system, making it a cinch to fold for storage, commuting or traveling.
The GLIDER is able to reach a top speed of 17 miles-per-hour for up to 9 miles thanks to a powerful 250-watt motor, features a sleek lunar-bright LED headlight for safety when the sun goes down and a backlit display allowing users to track stats like speed and battery life.
We used to just think of scooters as kids’ toys. But the GLIDER brings that simple concept into the future. It’s a lot of fun, but it’s also an efficient and economical last-mile option for daily commutes or just getting around. It makes it enjoyable and easy to get there faster without breaking a sweat.
Says Chief Marketing Officer Jason Wakefield.
With a quick kick to get the GLIDER rolling, power is available via an easy and intuitive thumb-lever activated electric throttle. A rear heel-brake and front electronic lever-actuated brake keep things in control, and a textured foot platform and shock-absorbing foam grips cover the contact points.
Crafted from a light-yet-strong aluminum frame, the GLIDER tips the scales at a scant 17 pounds, making it easy to grab and go once folded, and an IP55 rating makes it dust and water resistant for when you just can’t avoid the puddles or get caught in the rain.
The GOTRAX™ GLIDER comes in three Cosmic Colors (Pulsar Pink, Nebula Black, and Mars Red) and retails for $349.99, with the special introductory pre-holiday pricing of $249.99 and is available now at GOTRAX.com and other fine retailers.
