With so many urban commuters to choose from these days, we’re spoiled for choices. From folding electric bikes to ones that can be operated with a thumb throttle, most of the current options seem to be bicycles based. However, riding a bike for a prolonged period of time can take a toll on your back and rear-end. Not only that, no matter how compact or foldable they are, they are still bicycles that take up a certain amount of space.
In that sense, the FlyKly Smart Ped offers a more practical option for urban commuters. It’s just like a kick scooter, but you can maintain a certain speed with just one kick thanks to the 250W motor so you won’t be constantly working your legs. With a top assisted speed of 16 mph and a range of 18 to 30 miles, it’s perfect for the urban environment. More than that, it can fold to the size of a backpack, giving you the flexibility to use public transportation without worrying about taking up too much space.
At $999 the FlyKly Smart Ped isn’t cheap, but unlike a regular bicycle you won’t have to walk into the office with a back pain covered in your own perspiration. Now that’s what we call a true urban commuter.
