The Pulse Performance GRT-11 Electric Scooter is considered as ideal for boys and girls who are transitioning to their first ever kid’s electric scooter! True enough, this one is specifically designed for children to prepare and get ready to ride an electric scooter for the first time. Its Push-To-Go feature enables taking off just like a push scooter, making sure that the rider is ready and positioned properly. Also, the rider weight is distributed properly on the deck and stopping can be controlled easily, all thanks to the brake strategically placed in the rear of the deck (similar to a kick scooter).
In addition, this vehicle has an 80-watt motor that uses a chain drive in delivering power to the urethane rear wheel. This scooter can function continuously for 50 minutes too, that is, with the help of its 12-volt rechargeable battery. Take note to always fully charge the scooter before every use (there is a charger unit included in the package, of course!).
Moreover, the urethane tires require zero maintenance, enabling a smoother and more efficient ride, especially on lighter scooter models. The contoured stem tube is also important as it positions the rider securely in the middle of the deck. What’s more is that the wide grip tape deck surface ensures control and stability, really making your kid feel safe. By the way, this scooter is for children aged eight and above and weighing a maximum of 120 lbs.
Other features of this product include a thumb actuated throttle, an extra sticky grip tape deck that comes with vibrant graphics and an integrated rear foot brake for guaranteed high standard of safety. It also utilizes a high-tensile steel construction for outstanding toughness and durability of the frame. Additional information on the rear foot brake contains an electrical cutout switch that is responsible for shutting down the power of the motor when the brake is engaged. Thus, it results in fast and safe stopping.
Some parents had issues with the durability of this vehicle. One or two tries on this scooter got them questioning about Pulse producing defective products. There were instances that on the first try, the handle just broke off completely, even if the scooter was used normally. The second try, it was the chain wheel that had problems as it was not aligned with the chain (which looks like a factory defect). Thus, the wheel would not turn properly and would get locked up.
Others were also disappointed as the scooter came without packaging. There was no instruction manual and some parts were already broken (which the customers were not sure if they can fix on their own). Thus, it made them doubt about the capability of the product as well as the brand Pulse to produce quality electric scooters.
Despite the cons, a lot of parents still adore this Pulse Performance Products GRT-11 Electric Scooter, making it recommendable for children. Parents feel safe about the maximum speed (8 mph) of this scooter, since kids can handle it pretty well without hurting themselves. The kickstand is also a good feature since it lets kids store the scooter properly when not in use as compared to them just putting it on the ground. The battery also works well as it can make the scooter continuously work for even an hour, which is already a good time for kids to play. It is easy to keep track of charging time too, because the charger light turns red when charging, while it becomes green when fully charged.
And assembling the electric scooter is like a piece of cake. Even children can assemble it on their own! No need for adults to really do all the work. They can just supervise and assist. The shipping of this product is impressively prompt as well, so you do not have to worry if the package does not come on time for a special occasion because, well, it will come right on time. And guess what, this is super affordable! Forget the expensive electric scooters and settle on this high-performance, yet reasonably priced vehicle!
