Whether you’re a city dweller wishing for a more eco-friendly commute to work or a suburbanite looking for a fun way to whip around the neighborhood, the Transboard 3-Wheel Electric scooter is one of the coolest options available. Mercane, a Los Angeles-based consumer tech startup, unveiled its Transboard concept on Indiegogo and has reached 170% of the company’s $30,000 crowdfunding goal.
Capable of speeds up to 22 mph, you can see why Mercane’s Transboard is considered “the most advanced 3-wheel scooter for work and play.” With the ability to travel 25 miles on a single 6-hour charge, taking public transportation or sitting in traffic doesn’t seem like an option when you have this powerful scooter ready to go.
Equipped with a one-touch folding system, Transboard folds into a compact version of itself allowing the rider to roll the scooter behind them like a suitcase. After you get to your final destination, simply store your folded Transboard in any small space (storage closet, under your desk, behind a door, etc). There’s really no better way to get around the frustration of public transportation.
Mercane calls its 3-wheeled electric scooter, “The ultimate personal transportation vehicle.” Armed with a powerful 48V 500W BLDC hub motor and supported by a Double Wishbone suspension, Transboard can seamlessly climb hills and tackle some of the toughest terrain. Built on a Rev-tricycle frame and a double-link suspension, riders feel safe and balance whether they’re a novice rider or an experienced scooter master.
Composed of a polycarbonate outer shell and available in both a high gloss black/white finish, the Transboard will be the most impressive three-wheel scooter on the road. With a weight capacity of 220 lbs and an easy-to-maneuver self-balancing frame, Mercane’s scooter is designed for all types of riders. Navigation is a piece of cake and since you have an LED display giving you speed, trip distance, battery power and diagnostic information, you’re always up-to-date on Transboard’s performance.
Whether it’s the 48V detachable lithium-ion battery (allowing you to charge anywhere), the one-gesture folding system or the 22 mph max speed, the Transboard 3-Wheel Electric Scooter gets you where you’re going in style. From activating the cruise control on the open road to weaving in and out of gridlocked city traffic during rush hour, the Transboard Scooter has a widespread application.
If you happen to live in a city with steep inclines – like San Francisco – just remember that Transboard can only climb hills up to 15-degrees – anything beyond that is a bit of a stretch. Finally, buyers should expect to see battery power degenerate after 500 charging cycles. That’s just par for the course when it comes to lithium-ion batteries.
