Read on to find out what cool features this scooter has—and how to enter for your chance to win one!

Scooters for the 21st century

I had a two-wheeled, non-electric scooter as a kid and teen. It was fun riding around town without having to haul around a bike. Being faster than walking, it meant you could hit up the video game shop, 7-11, and get home in record time. If you wanted to be the coolest kid on the block, you got a scooter.

A few years later, scooters got a reboot by going electric. Instead of requiring you to propel them along, you could ride them as they moved themselves forward. A dream of Back to the Future, achieved. Sort of. They have yet to hover a few centimetres off the ground.

These new scooters let you do useful things (beyond just moving around quickly), which is a benefit in and of itself. Now you can commute to work without worrying about catching a bus or train, which really takes the stress out of busy mornings. Or, if you need to make a quick trip to the grocery store, not only can you get there faster, you don’t have to lug the haul back home on foot.

It almost goes without saying that scooters are just plain fun, too. Learning to perform tricks on one is not only gratifying—you totally get to show off in front of your friends as well. Perhaps even a hit Snapchat story filmed on your smartphone could come to fruition. No promises there, though. But what is sure is that you’ll definitely want a Gyrocopters Flash Portable Electric Scooter. So, read on to find out what features it has and how to enter for a chance to win one.

The Gyrocopters Flash Portable Electric Scooter does more, and does it better

Able to reach 25 km/hr, the Gyrocopters Flash Portable Electric Scooter gives you the thrill of fast movement so you can truly enjoy the journey.

Holding a charge that allows it to travel around 20km means you can commute long distances without worrying about having to stop and recharge on the way. And, it works on concrete, asphalt, and mud surfaces so you don’t have to change your route just to accommodate your scooter. And if your commute involves hills, the Gyrocopter will take the pain out of getting from “A” up to “B”.

Integrated portability features add even more convenience, like a folding design that allows for compact transportation and storage, and the lightweight 12kg construction is super handy, too. You’ll find yourself taking your scooter to all sorts of cool locations just to experience what it’s like to use it there.

Solid rubber tires come standard on this scooter, and that along with selectable speed modes like Eco Mode and Fast Mode means you get the smooth ride you want every time. There are even built-in headlights and taillights for night riding, adding further safety and security to every trip you take.

Just in case you do run out of battery when zooming around town, the Gyrocopters Flash doesn’t just suddenly shut off and send you hurtling toward the floor. Rather, it gently coasts to a stop, giving you time to prepare and plan ahead.

On that note, this scooter has regenerative braking, which means it can recover power when you apply the brake to help recharge the battery a little. In essence, you get to squeeze out just a little more power every time you come to a stop.
