Yvolution YES is the first electric scooter.
Dublin-based firm didn’t just mimic what worked for others.
With its use of vibrant hues, flashy LEDs, and the revolutionary Flexpress hardwood deck, it created one of the most aesthetically pleasing electric scooters we’ve seen recently.
The scooter is pre-assembled; just screw on the handles and go.
One button controls the YES Electric Scooter.
The easy-to-read LED display shows speed, headlights, and more.
The Yvolution YES has a five point safety lighting system with a bright headlamp, taillight, and Flexpress board lights.
You’ll be spotted riding YES.
Riding the YES Electric Scooter is dangerous, so it’s important you’re visible.
It’s limited to 25Km/15.5 miles, but the electric brakes are powerful.
Worse, you use a little lever with little resistance, making braking jerky and sudden.
The rear mudguard can also be used to brake, but it’s connected to the electronic brake, so don’t bother.
On the highest setting, the Yvolution YES Electric Scooter’s range isn’t great, especially in steep areas.
To make matters worse, the battery can die without warning, disabling the electric brake.
The YES Electric Scooter isn’t the greatest on the market, but perhaps Yvolution can fix the flaws so the
second version can compete with the Pure Air Pro and others.
The Yvolution YES Electronic Scooter should deliver an outstanding riding experience thanks to its safety features, electric brake, and ‘floating’ Flexpress board.
The stem is high, so even tall people (I’m 6’1″) can easily steer the scooter.The YES scooter isn’t impossible to ride properly, but it’s not easy, especially at first.
The electronic brake is overly forceful and sluggish.
The brakes turn on slightly later but virtually at full force when the button is hit, making it difficult to operate them effectively.
We found that accelerating only when necessary and watching for indications in the distance helped us slow down.
Before braking, you pull the scooter back, shifting your centre of gravity, so you don’t crash forward.
Despite its floating deck, the Yvolution YES scooter has rock-hard tyres.
The deck can only handle so much vibration, and the scooter vibrates on most surfaces.
Even the slightest movement registers as motion, so you can’t stop the scooter while it’s moving.
The scooter may be started by pushing it forward and revving the lever.
This isn’t a problem for expert riders, but newbies may lose control of the e-scooter.
The YES Electric Scooter pulls well on flat surfaces, and it’s fun to ride about the city (without hills).
The turn radius is broad, yet the tall stem and handlebars make riding fun.
Puncture-proof tyres add safety.
