Rediscovering the Best Electric Scooters of 2019: A Reddit Roundup

February 28, 2024

Looking back at 2019, it's clear that the electric scooter market had a lot to offer with an array of models that catered to every type of rider. That year, Reddit's community of enthusiasts and urban commuters keenly shared their insights, discussing the best electric scooters that combined performance, reliability, design, and value. Let's take a nostalgia-filled journey to revisit some of the top picks and see how they stand up today. Perhaps these models might inspire current manufacturers or remind us of the classic features that made them stand out on the streets—and on the forums. Here's a curated list of electric scooters that were the talk of Reddit in 2019, which we've lovingly dubbed 'The 2019 Reddit Electric Scooter Honors' list. Please note that links to reviews are provided for informational purposes and may reflect updates or newer models of the scooters mentioned.

The 2019 Reddit Electric Scooter Honors:

  • Segway Ninebot ES2: Praised for its sleek design and solid build, the ES2 was a popular choice for casual commuting with an LED display, shock absorbers, and customizable lights.

  • Xiaomi Mi M365: As a crowd favorite, the M365 won hearts with its minimalist design and user-friendly interface, making it an evergreen choice among urban riders.

  • Levy Electric Scooter: Known for its swappable battery system, the Levy offered portability and convenience, allowing riders to extend their travel distance with ease.

  • Glion Dolly Foldable Lightweight Adult Electric Scooter: The Glion Dolly's retractable handle and roller wheels catered to the last-mile commuters who needed a scooter they could carry and tuck away.

  • Boosted Rev: Although not listed on the provided URLs, the Boosted Rev's powerful dual-wheel drive and high-quality craftsmanship made it an attractive option for speed enthusiasts and uphill riders.

While some of these models may have undergone upgrades or been succeeded by newer versions, their reputation among the Reddit community remains a testimony to their quality. For the urban explorers of today, reflecting on these top picks from 2019 could guide current purchasing decisions or spark an interest in the evolution of electric scooters.

Whether you're a seasoned rider or a newcomer, the electric scooter market will always pay homage to these classics that paved the way. As you zip through city landscapes or cruise along beachfront paths, remember the ingenuity and spirit these scooters brought to our modern urban experience.
