Viro Rides 550e Electric Scooter Background

Do you remember those hot summer days when you and your friends would race down the streets of your neighborhood on the back of your bikes?

That feeling of the wind rushing through and tousling your hair as you zoomed down a small hill back home, to where mom had a nice cold pitcher of lemonade and cookies waiting for you and your pals belong to a much simpler, happier time.

Tired of seeing your child curled up on the couch, a remote in one hand, and a gaming console in the other?

Want him or her to get off the couch, go outside into the sunshine, and play with other kids? Don’t know just how to go about doing that? Give your kid the best of both worlds, where technology meets good old-fashioned fun.

The Viro rides 550e electric scooter is the perfect blend of the traditional and a nifty electric scooter to give your kid the tech fix he’s looking for, at the affordable rate that you are looking for.

If you’re searching for a gift to brighten and jazz up your child’s birthday or  Christmas morning, or to reward him for those straight A’s he’s been getting in Math, the Vega is the gift you’re looking to buy.

Viro Rides Electric Scooter What Does It Look Like & Come With?

The Viro rides come in an easy-to-unpack and transportable box and requires an adult to assemble it. Also included are two rechargeable 12-V lead-acid batteries and a charging cord.

The Viro rides utilize a 100-watt DC Brush Motor with a chain drive that top speed up to 10 miles per hour. It is a sleek new product that has a fully adjustable handlebar that boasts an easy-to-control thumb throttle.

It has lever-activated rear-disk brakes that provide optimum braking performance.

Additionally, the Viro rides 550e electric scooter features dual kickstands-one for each mode- to prop it up and a new rear footpeg for easier riding and control.

It also features LED running lights and is covered on the underside to give off a cool ground effect.

A list of pros and cons

VIRO Rides VR 550E Electric Scooter
Pros:
  • Fun colors
  • Adjustable height and handles
  • Variable speeds up to 10 mph
  • Lever activated rear safety breaks for precision braking
  • Led running lights
Cons:
  • Require practice to shift between modes
  • Needs to be recharged over-night
  • No warranty offered

Viro weighs around 29 pounds and while it is easy to navigate, it is, however, not recommended for children above the age of 12, or below the age of 8.

With a weight limit of around 120 pounds, Tweens and teenagers would probably be better off riding a bigger scooter. One that is built to fit their height and proportions.

VIRO Rides 550E Electric Scooter Features:

Installation

The product is easy to unpack and requires an adult to initially assemble it. But once it’s up and charged, it’s ready to go and requires little else in the way of installation.

The VIRO Rides is known for its versatility and can be folded for easy transport and storage.

Safety

The VIRO 550e electric scooter has complete lever-activated, rear safety brakes that give your child the best possible advantage in terms of precision and grip when it comes to braking.

LED lights that run along the sides of the scooter is great for cool ground effect but also ensure visibility in the dark. Providing the added advantage of looking absolutely lit!

The device has solid and sturdy tires that promise a smooth and fun ride. This will not be a bumpy ride, although helmets and protective gear are always encouraged. Watch out for that tree, kids.

Charging

The Viro 550e electric scooter runs on two rechargeable 12-V lead acid batteries and comes with the cable wire enclosed. Viro electric scooters’ charge time is to set up. All you have to do to get it up and running is to plug in, charge the two batteries overnight for 10 – 12 hours, and your kid will be zooming outside to get some fun, catch some sun, and stock up on that Vitamin D.

A fully charged set of batteries give your child 40 minutes of uninterrupted playtime on the Viro.

Speed

With a 100watt DC Motor and a chain drive that provide varying speed settings up to 10mph, this scooter has just enough oomph and horsepower to satiate your kid’s need for speed, without compromising on safety.

The scooter, which promises a run time of six miles, is a great way for your child to ride across your neighborhood with his friends and explore a small corner of the world on the back of his new convertible – the kids’ edition.

Cost efficiency

Let’s talk about value for money. You’re probably looking for an amazing gift for your young one that will 1) earn you major brownie points, 2) get you that Best Mom/Dad mug on your special day, and 3) check all the boxes, without leaving you eating out of cereal boxes.

The Viro electric scooter is reasonably priced and is a veritable steal for the quality, protection, and trendy new features and technology it promises and provides.

Getting a grip

The handlebar on the VIRO Rides scooter allows for maximum height adjustment in either mode. The thumb throttles provide maximum control to the rider.

The scooter also features new rear foot-pegs that optimize for easier riding. The scooter is designed for effective and efficient navigation and has all the features needed to deliver on that promise.

Maintenance and durability

Products made for children need to withstand a lot, and by a lot, I mean a lot of wear and tear. I find that the VIRO Rides scooter is built with a mind to just how much use children get out of their bikes.

Made of steel, with an aluminum frame, it is durable, sustainable, and of good quality. If there is a puddle to be found, your child will probably, definitely, find it.

This scooter is easy to wipe down after a particularly muddy ride through those puddles. The chain drive and motor are enclosed under the colorful exterior that eliminates any potential exposure to or damage from debris, dust, and dirt.

The scooter kickstand will keep your 550E standing in style. Features a durable spring-loaded foldaway mechanism.
