Spin has announced the new flagship electric scooter scooter, the Spin S-100T. The “T” means “tough”, which is exactly what a scooter looks like.
The scooter was designed in-house by Spin’s team and will be rolled out on Sacramento Street this summer before it will be widely launched nationwide later this year.
The S-100T electric scooter is designed as a very sturdy scooter. This is a must-have for shared vehicles that lead a fairly tough life on the road.
The cable is completely enclosed inside the scooter, with multiple handles built into the scooter’s frame and stem, as well as a lock.
Spin even says that the new S-100T scooter is designed to go beyond what most scooter makers offer in their rugged models.
As CTO Benny Wong explained,
“We make the S-100T safe and durable in the most extreme environments we can think of, beyond what most electric scooter manufacturers do, beyond what is required to pass certification. I’ve done a sexual test. I think an unreliable scooter is a scooter that you can’t ride. With that in mind, like any other vehicle, the Spin S-100T works at the highest level regardless of conditions. I guaranteed it. “
A total of over 400 safety and durability tests were performed on the scooter to benchmark its performance.
The tests are designed to ensure that the scooter can continue to operate in harsh environments. Some tests included exposing the scooter to salt fog to ensure proper performance in humid coastal areas and in the temperature range of -20 to 65ºC (-4 to 149ºF).
The scooter also features a myriad of rugged and redundant safety systems, including three independent braking mechanisms.
Spin claims to have the industry’s first 500W motor, and they say it should help scooters climb hills better than their competitors.
The scooter focuses on a more sustainable charging operation and is specially designed to keep the motor performance constant over a wider range of battery charges, Spin says the new replaceable. Batteries are also included. The maximum range of the new pack should be 37 miles (60 km).
Hui Wen Chan, Spin’s Sustainability Director, talked more about the fruits of the sustainable design of the new scooter.
“Creating a more sustainable future is one of Spin’s core values, and the S-100T was built with that in mind. The S-100T is for efficient and sustainable operation. Designed from scratch, it is more durable, modular and has a longer lifespan than the average shared electric scooter. This vehicle also deploys with a replaceable battery. Reduce waste and emissions from work. “
