There is a decided difference between getting around in certain circles and just going around in circles. Motivation is key as the drive to movement must overwhelm the decisive charm of rest. On occasion, the motivational drive is stimulated by the conveyance itself, hence the popularity of skateboards and scooters for riding nowhere in particular. The appeal to parents is readily evident – anything, short of crime, that gets the kids outside is a good thing. Skateboards and scooters hold the potential for exercise, certainly more so than waiting on the curb for the ice cream truck. At least until you put motors in them.
Then you’re right back to having kids standing around, getting even less exercise than they would from chasing the ice cream truck. For active standers on the go who might not possess the best balance, the 3-wheeled Trikke Pon-e 48v will haul up to 250 lbs. of rider at speeds of up to 16 mph. On the other foot, those with exceptional balance can cast off all the ostensible trappings of luxury, or even safety, with the Solowheel Orbit. In the middle, the Swagway Swagtron T1 -- 2 wheels with an identity crisis -- can support 220 lbs. of upstanding user. In the right conditions, this sideways skateboard can roll up to 8 mph.
Reportedly able to support 264 lbs., the Skque should hold allure to a wide range of recreational riders. With 10-inch wheels under stylish wheel wells, it purports to be self-balancing. Which is fine, but one would likely prefer it to be human-balancing as that is what stands on it. Even though the little comforts like seats, body and steering wheel have been eliminated, there’s no reason to slum it entirely. The Skque is equipped with Bluetooth and will play music of your choice, which your feet should enjoy. It also comes with LED footlights for scooting around in the dark. Its two 250-watt motors give it the punch to roll at over 6 mph and its 158W Samsung battery pack will drive the Skque as far as 15 miles.
Plays music from phone over the internal speakers quite loud even. I have run around on it many times, and it works great. I'm over 200 lbs, and it doesn't have a problem.
It has a good top speed and takes about 5 minutes to be good enough to zip around the neighborhood with confidence. The battery life seems to be good.
