Segway ES2 is the Best E-Scooter (6 Reasons Why)

UPDATE [6 Aug 2019]: The PMD safety certification deadline has been moved forward to July 2020. All non-UL2272 certified devices will be auto-deregistered and cannot be used in public after July 2020. Users can continue to ride only UL2272 certified PMDs beyond the July 2020 deadline.


Why is there a need for the Segway ES2 electric scooter?

If you live in Singapore and want to get an electric scooter, you are spoilt for choice. There are hundreds of retailers offering thousands of e-scooter models in Singapore: lightweight wonders, heavy-hitters, with or without seats. One that is  great for daily first and last mile commutes. A reliable model that can withstand the transport demands of your food delivery gig.

Whatever your preference, it is likely there will be an e-scooter model that checks all your boxes. However, all experienced e-scooter riders know that there are several e-scooter features you have to have in order to get the most value for your money.

What more, you’ll be glad to hear that the Segway ES2 is one of the best e-scooter deals in the market.


Most Valuable Features of the Segway ES2

Good news: the Segway ES2 is the only electric scooter model you can use after 31 December 2020 in Singapore.

Reason? The Segway ES2 e-scooter is certified under the UL2272 fire safety standard.

A short introduction to UL2272:

To reduce fire hazards in personal mobility devices (PMDs), Underwriters Laboratories (UL) - a global safety organisation - created a standard for PMD electrical systems.

Called UL2272, the standard tests and ensures the batteries, circuits and other electrical parts of PMDs are free from fire hazards.


  • Battery quality

If you want your e-scooter to have a longer lifespan, we recommend you go for one that has high quality lithium-ion batteries. They are much more stable than cheaper batteries and are much less likely to explode or melt as a result of intense heat (such as from charging).

Good news: our Segway ES2 is powered by UL2271-certified IP67 lithium-ion batteries.

You can also opt to attach an extra additional battery pack on your ES2 e-scooter without compromising your device’s safety.

Encased in a weather-proof and water-resistant hard external covering, you can even ride your e-scooter in light drizzles.


  • Budget

A typical e-scooter in the market can cost you between one to several thousand dollars.

At the price of just $649 (usual price being $799), our Segway ES2 is the best e-scooter deal you can get in town.

How so? Besides its attractive price point, you can use your registered ES2 for as long as you like without worrying about throwing it away after 31 December 2020 according to LTA’s regulations.


  • Foldability

You spent an entire day out riding your electric scooter. Now, you’re exhausted and want to get home as soon as possible - and that means taking public transport.

If you intend to bring your e-scooter onto the MRT or bus, bear in mind that it has to fit within the dimensions of 120cm by 70cm by 40cm. The only way to transform an upright e-scooter into one that is small enough to enter the MRT? Folding it.

Now, not all e-scooters are foldable. However, you’re in luck if you own a Segway ES2. It can be conveniently folded in one smooth step and you only need a second to do so. You can then bring the ES2 into public transport without an issue.


  • After sales services

Like a car, your e-scooter needs to be checked and maintained regularly. When you buy an electric scooter, the most important thing is to check if your retailer has the expertise to provide maintenance checks and repair services.

In the event that your electric scooter tyres wear out or its electrical parts break down, you have a reliable source to turn to. With a quick turnaround service, your e-scooter will be up and running in no time.

We are the Official Distributor & Repair Centre for Segway-Ninebot Singapore. Our mechanics are all trained by Segway to fix faulty electric scooters, so you can rest assure that the ES2 you bought from us is in good hands.


  • Warranty

A quality e-scooter from a reputable retailer is usually accompanied by a standard one year factory warranty.

You should avoid investing in an e-scooter with no warranty just because it is jaw-droppingly cheap. The future costs of changing a sub-standard electric scooter’s spoilt motor or battery pack do add up fast.

We give all our customers a free one-year warranty when they buy the Segway ES2.
