Top Selling Electric Scooter Accessories!
Posted 6th January 2020. Category: General.
Accessories are a great addition to an electric scooter, instantly improving its utility. We will go through WalkSmart's top-selling accessories.
The Basic Helmet:
The standard helmet costs around $45. It is a standard, stylish matte-coloured helmet with internal padding and a soft latch system. It is only available in-store and is a top-selling accessory.
Front Scooter Bag:
The front scooter bag attaches to the front-top handlebar of any scooter. It is about 2L in size, and so can hold small belongings. It is detachable so that the user can take it with them. Most customers have it to store other scooter accessories such as a lock, or a charger. It costs about $50, and is available in-store and online.
Mobile Phone Mount:
There are a lot of options in the market for bike or scooter mobile phone mounts. Unfortunately, many of them are quite cheap, flimsy and don't hold a phone properly. WalkSmart has tried and tested a few models to select a solid mount that does not have any of the problems some other models have. The phone mount available at WalkSmart is made of steel and has a secure grip mechanism. While you ride, your phone will not bounce around - instead - it will stay firm to your handlebar. It is also quick to add or release your phone when you hop on or off.
The Xiaomi M365 Tubeless Tyre:
TThe Xiaomi M365 and M365 Pro come stock with air-filled tubed tyres, which can be prone to punctures depending on the riders route terrain or riding style. If the rider does get a puncture, they have two options; either swap with a tubed tyre or swap with a tubeless. A tubed tyre is prone to get a puncture again, whereas a tubeless tyre is puncture resistant. Unfortunately, changing the tube or tyre is very difficult on the M365 model, it requires specialised tools and some skill. Because of this, WalkSmart offers a tubed tyre replacement service that will prevent further issues in the future. The only downsides of a tubeless tyre are that it is a little bit more firm when riding.
A Secondary Charger:
WalkSmart has additional chargers available for customers who have either lost their existing charger or who want an extra charger for another location. Additional chargers can be costly. The Ninebot Max scooter has a unique feature - a built-in charger, so an additional cable costs only $3 and does not require the whole unit.
A lock allows the user to leave their scooter unattended on the street safely. WalkSmart has a few lock models available depending on the user's safety requirements. The standard lock is a wire-tyre system that goes through the front or back wheel to securely lock the scooter to a pole. The more secure lock is a large steel D type that goes around the whole scooter frame.
Other electric scooter accessories that are not as popular, but are available include the Ninebot Scooter seat - a comfortable seat attachment that can attach to either the Ninebot ES2 or Xiaomi M365/Pro range. The ring/bell attachment comes with most scooter models, so is less popular as an additional addon.
