Following a successful Kickstarter, Australian electric scooter brand Raine has released more information on the ‘Raine One’ which, if true, offers incredible battery life, performance and affordability.
With something like this, you would expect a company to cut corners. But with shock absorbers, large all-weather tyres, an aluminium carbon fibre body and even GPS, this doesn’t seem the case.
The e-scooter was designed in Melbourne by James Murphy, who was also the founder of the Bajaboard off-road electric skateboard, who recruited Marc Alexander, co-founder of the LIFX smart lightbulb, and Dell Young Hero Entrepreneur of the Year Michelle Mannering.
The scooter has a top speed of 50 km/hr (31mph) and an extended range of 40 kilometres (25 miles). This means that the Raine One can travel further and faster than any other scooter on the market today. Not just another micro-mobility startup?
An innovative digital display allows riders to check their speed, battery usage and GPS, which is a nice premium touch. For safety, the scooter also comes with anti-lock brakes and front and rear led lights, which are customisable.
