The Pulse Performance scooter is able to go 8 miles per hour powered by its 80W battery and chain driven motor. The weight limit on this model is 120 pounds. The throttle on the GRT-11 is a thumb throttle so you don’t have to twist like most electric scooters. This can be safer for you child because they have less of a chance of getting stuck accelerating from the momentum of the scooter with a beginners experience. Some kids have trouble twisting the handle back forward or forget all together. This feature helps alleviate that issue and help your child learn to ride sooner and safer. The deck also has surface grip tape applied to help keep your child stable and balanced. It says “Pulse Performance Products” and is colored in blue and black. This is one of the safest and cheap electric scooters for kids.
It was also so popular with the kids that they did a segment of it on Fox news!
It’s incredibly convenient that these tires are made out of 100% Polyurethane. The material is puncture proof, so you won’t have to worry about nails or other objects tearing into the tire. The wheels are black and blue and also last a very long time. It would take years before they need replacing. This model also doesn’t have a front handle bar brake like most electric scooters. The brake is located at the back end of the GRT-11. You simply push down on the back end and it comes to a stop. This is completely safe on the GRT-11 because its maximum speed is only 8 miles per hour. It’s hard to hurt yourself at this speed, humans can run faster than that. It also deactivates the throttle when braking. So your kid won’t accidentally continue to accelerate while braking and cause issues with the scooter. This also helps ensure the safety of your child and others around them.The handlebars are formed in riser style. The bend forward and give you better control and grip of the scooter.
The two color options available are red and blue. I personally like the red model better than the blue one but that’s just my opinion! They both feature the Pulse Performance Products logo on the grip tape of the deck. The sturdy steel is covered in red or blue with the body based off those color schemes as well. The design consists of checkered layouts and stripes. Speaking of the steel frame, it’s incredibly hard to bend and holds together very well. The deck is also made out of very sturdy material wrapped in steel. The deck however cannot withstand a large amount of water. You should steer clear of all puddles, muddy areas, heavy rain and do not store this outside if it is raining. The water damage is very possible with the many electronic components inside of an electric scooter. You also run the risk of frying the battery but those are much more easily replaced than the internal wirings.
