Freedom of Movement. MEET YOUR PERSONAL LIBERATION DEVICE
Money. Time. Joy.
Could you use more of any of those? Unagi wipes out your Uber/Lyft/Lime/Bird costs, reduces travel time, and adds the thrill of the ride to every trip. But maybe you're already good.
This electric scooter for adults might replace my need for a second car.
The Incredible Handlebar
The magnesium alloy handlebar is a feat of structural engineering that required more than thirty prototypes to perfect. Integrated in the top bar are the intuitive controls of the dashboard—throttle, brake, horn, and LED headlight. No visible wires. No bulky console. Just a sleek, integrated command center that connects the rider to the ride. Why Magnesium? It’s 33% lighter than aluminum, which partially explains why the Unagi is the most portable scooter on the market.
First “One Click” Folding Scooter
Press one button and the Unagi patented stainless steel hinge system folds and locks in one smooth, satisfying click. This engineering breakthrough makes it dramatically easier to fold and carry than every other scooter on the market. We know because we tested them.
You have two choices: The E250 contains a robust 250-watt motor embedded in the front wheel, and is ideal for riders whose typical ride is flat urban terrain. The E450 has a dedicated 225 watt motor in each wheel, supplying 450 watts and over 28 newton meters of torque so you can easily tackle hills with 15-degree inclines. Our motors are completely custom built utilizing rare-earth neodymium magnets and a monitoring system to ensure no overheating. It’s been painstakingly optimized for performance, efficiency, responsiveness, and longevity.
One gentle push on the ergonomically optimized lever and the dual electronic anti-lock brakes bring you to a safe, steady stop. Both on our accelerator and brakes, we’ve built variability into our controls so pushing down further increases their action. Almost every other scooter we tested are binary in their action—either all on or all off—making for a jarring, jerky, unnerving ride. And no one likes to get jerked around.
Unagi is powered by the highest quality electric batteries in existence, courtesy of LG. Coupled to our custom designed management system it provides the highest energy density and lowest charging time of any battery its size. Like everything on our scooters, longevity, and reliability are our primary focus. The batteries will last for many years with continuous daily use, and then be easily replaced at home or by shipping it to us.
You’ll always see and be seen even in low-visibility nighttime conditions with a flush-mounted 47 lumen LED front light and a rear blinking red LED.
Tube of all Tubes
Unagi leverages TORAY carbon fiber from Japan to strike an unprecedented balance of lightweight and heavy-duty strength. The composite is anisotropic, a technical term meaning it’s laid down by hand in a painstaking process that optimizes strength by distributing layers of the fiber where it’s needed most. You don’t have to tell your friends that your scooter uses the same carbon fiber as Elon Musk’s Space-X rockets, but we can’t blame you if you did.
By combining a singular piece of machined aluminum with embedded silicon on the top surface for traction, the scooter deck achieves an ideal combination of rigidity and comfort. But what’s missing from this equation? The seams, joints, stitches, bulk, scratchy sandpaper grips, and harsh metal finish that comes standard with other scooters.
Epic Paint Job
Run your hands over Unagi and you’ll instantly notice the perfect finish. Unagi provides an exterior befitting a luxury vehicle with three separate coats including a laminate and a high-abrasion resistant paint to handle the wear and tear of the road. And most importantly, our scooters will never rust. And that high-tech paint comes in four vivid, stylish colors. So what color is personal freedom, anyway? You decide.
Breakthrough Custom Designed Tires
Flat tires? Please. Our 7.5” wheels are made of solid rubber and puncture proof, so they’ll never foil your morning commute. Our design team broke new ground on these tires. Notice the air pockets spread throughout the circumference of the wheel. These ingeniously act as a front and rear suspension system, providing the right amount of shock absorption that lets you still feel responsive balance and road feel.
Select your speed—beginner, intermediate, or advanced. The scooter’s processor governs top speed and acceleration and will remember your speed preferences so you don’t have to.
Our kickstand is a perfect example of our ruthless obsession with detail. Unlike all other scooters on the market whose generic kickstands come from a third-party vendor, the Unagi’s kickstand is designed from the ground up to seamlessly integrate with the deck. As a result, the stand is sturdy and simple and practically invisible when you’re riding.
Undoubtedly beautiful... and will even get you up some hills in San Francisco.
