Cool Rider–Riding Suave

Written by Brianna Smity

Enough with those dorky motorised vehicles for one, the Cool Rider is a motorised unit that will get you around while you still look cool.

Truth be told, other single rider motorised vehicles look a bit on the silly side – you are not going to feel like a stud whizzing around on a Segway. Well, the Cool Rider is a saving grace in that regard as you can ride it is and still look like the man. You can manoeuvre it with one arm and still nonchalantly cop a cool pose. That may sound a little silly but that is the reality and brilliance of the Cool Rider.

Stylistically it appears to be a mash-up of a sled and a kick-push scooter. The single front wheel is a lot larger than the two hind wheels. Attached to the front wheel is a long tubular handle as well as the motor, which powers this fantastic ride and gets you up to a top speed of a 12mph. The motor runs off a rechargeable battery that will get you and hour of ride-time on a full charge. Its battery pack is detachable and can be plugged into a wall socket and it fits back on with the minimal effort. The nature of the Cool Rider is exactly why it has that epic name – it’s all about riding coolly. The Cool Rider can be purchased for $1 250 online here.

 

About the author

Brianna Smity

Hey! My name is Brianna Smity and I'm majoring in Integrative Public Relations and minoring in Multimedia Design at University of Southern California (usc.edu). I love drawing and painting and I spend a lot of my time outdoors, more specifically on the water. I love to paddle board, boat, kayak, rollerblade, and bike. I LIVE for dogs and I would own 500 if I could. I have a black lab puppy named Luna and I miss her everyday I'm here at CMU. I love to listen to music, my taste is pretty diverse, but I am especially into 90s pop and alternative. My guilty pleasure is watching Keeping Up With The Kardashians, yes I know, but I am ADDICTED. My ultimate goal is to hopefully run social media platforms for a large company such as Victoria's Secret or Kylie Cosmetics.
