It has a 1,000 W motor that gives it a maximum speed of 56 km/h, although it can only be driven at that speed on forest roads. For legal reasons, given its condition as a scooter, in the city the speed is limited to 32 km/h.

Electric motors are revolutionizing two-wheelers. Until a few years ago, most of them (except motorcycles) depended on the strength of our legs, limiting them quite a bit. But electric motors are causing the appearance of new types of vehicles, which are difficult to catalogue.

According to the Computer Hoy portal , a good example is A-Ride, an off-road electric scooter without a seat , which can be used at any time of the year, on any surface.

Developed by professional off-road cyclist Audric Lacour for the Canadian startup Alpine Riding, the A-Ride electric scooter is designed to effortlessly traverse any surface: asphalt, dirt, sand, snow, and even ice.

It has a 1,000 W motor that gives it a maximum speed of 56 km/h, although it can only be driven at that speed on forest roads. For legal reasons, given its condition as a scooter, in the city the speed is limited to 32 km/h.

The 1,000 Wh battery provides a range of 80 kilometers. And it recharges in 5 hours.

One of the keys to A-Ride is that the driver is standing, since he does not have a seat. This lowers the vehicle’s center of gravity to near ground level, making it much more stable and safer when cornering because the weight is evenly distributed throughout the vehicle. It is much more maneuverable than a bike or motorcycle.

A-Ride has a 6061-T6 aluminum alloy chassis, 180 mm disc brakes, 24-inch wheels with dual suspension, and a 3.5-inch LCD screen from which it shows all the information related to battery consumption, speed , mileage, etc
