Unagi Model One Electric Scooter Review

Aside from having the coolest name for an electric scooter company on the market, Unagi also has one of the most stylish scooters to boot!

Most of the electric scooters on the market are very, very similar in appearance to the next. Unagi has taken that into account and flipped scooter design on its head.

The Model One E450 has above average speed and range for a foldable scooter, but also is lightweight enough to be easy to carry with you up stairs and into the office/classroom.

The handlebar is made of a magnesium alloy that is lighter than traditional scooter handlebars while hiding all the wiring components keeping the look sleek and safe.

The deck is made out of one molded piece of machined aluminum. No joined pieces mean no weaknesses in its design. It’s strong and solid while adding to the lightweight nature of this scooter.

The overall structure of the E450 is made out of carbon fiber, the same carbon fiber that Space X utilizes in its rockets. It comes from the Japanese company, Toray. This is one of the most modern methods of producing carbon fiber technology in the world today.

The final thing that I love about this scooter is the 30-day return policy. It doesn’t matter why you return it, they will take it back and give you back your money. No risk, HIGH reward!!

Final Verdict: For the price, the Model One E450 delivers with great specs and capabilities in a ridiculously durable frame.
