PTVs, or personal transport vehicles, are fast becoming the way for commuters to zip from transportation hubs to work, or from work to home, in a quick and energy-efficient manner. They also appeal to those who don't want to worry about parking and the attendant costs of seeking others' validation. Some are standing/sitting combos, like the Uberscoot 800W Citi, a high performance e-scooter that is actually street legal in some UK regions. Road legality may be cheerfully sacrificed for portability by some commuters, however, who like to be able to fold-and-carry or roll their PTV, as with the 24-lb. E-twow Booster.
Another serious contender in the PTV industry is Probity Cell, LLC who, with the Glion Dolly, proves that economical, portable, eco-friendly scooters are not just practical but desirable. The Glion Slalom is the first model of the Glion Electric Scooter series, and for now is the only other one available besides the Dolly. In fact, its specs are virtually identical to the Dolly -- both weigh about 26 lbs. with a top speed of 15 mph and a top range of 15 miles. Both scooters are powered by a 250-watt brushless electric hub motor and run on a 36-volt li-ion battery. The battery charges in 2 to 3.5 hours and should last about 3 to 5 years. Both the Dolly and the Slalom are made of T6 aircraft-grade, powder coated aluminum, and have 8-inch honeycomb, never-flat tires.
The Glion Slalom's handlebars fold down in such a way that, helped by a set of casters, the rider can wheel it behind them between rides. It also features a handy kickstand to help it stand up for itself. There isn't much information on Glion's website about this product, though the few Amazon reviews available rate it as an excellent investment. As Glion is a tiny company with only 2 scooters to its name, it will hopefully have more to add to its repertoire of long-lasting, highly praised PTVs.
