3. E-Go Cruiser Electric Skateboard
If you don’t want to drop a grand on a Boosted Board, but you are so done with driving your car back and forth to work in stop-and-go traffic. Or riding a smelly, stop-and-go bus. Or taking a smelly stop-and-go taxi. And you want a longboard, E-Go Cruiser can hook you up for a couple hundred less. We’re not only talking fun, we’re talking investing in an economical commute if gas hits $3.50 again. And why shouldn’t it with things the way they are? But don’t get me started. On your E-Go, you can jet around the taxis and buses and cars at a constant 13 mph (20.9 km/h) and look hot without even breaking a sweat.
4. Razor E300 Electric Scooter
Razor makes rush hour (or lunch hour) fun as it cuts your commute and adds excitement to your shuttle to work. It can also get you to class in style and not out of breath as you zig and zag around other diligent but envious students forced to use their feet. The motor propels you at a constant 15 mph (24 km/h) which puts it out of reach of the squeamish. It will still zip you around if you’re a little overweight (235 lbs or 106 kg, maybe even more) and as long as you take care of the battery, the Razor will take care of you whether on pavement or gravel, hills or planes. And of course, waxed linoleum.
