You’ll Love the OKAI NEON Scooter

Everyone who knows me knows I love scooters. Enter my newest baby, the OKAI NEON Scooter. You want to be seen, right? You can be seen on this lighted scooter, so you can safely ride it at night. The NEON has a beautiful strip of light on the front vertical bar and a glowing strip of light along under the base.

Also, it fits with my bro-borrow-regulations because OKAI products are sturdy and well built so, I dare let someone borrow it.

I’m not big on jumping too much, but I occasionally like a little lift on curved curbs — but the salient point is that you can maneuver pretty well on this piece.

OKAI get a little air

You can ride the scooter to the office and easily fold and carry it up the stairs — it’s a classy little number.

You pair your scooter with your phone and receive a confirmation from the light bars when you’re ready to go — lights up when you lock, unlock, charge, and when you have a full charge. There are no questions — you can see what’s happening, even from a distance.

From the pic above, you can see the specs on the tires, and it truly is a pleasure to ride — especially when I have to get to work, and I don’t want to be jostled all over the place.

The Neon is water-resistant with very little (if any) slipping on the road or sidewalk. I’ve ridden in the rain when man nor beast shouldn’t be outside — and I got home just fine.

It felt like if I’m on a motorcycle in the rain — of course, you don’t like riding in the rain, you get wet — but you can make it safely to your destination, and the scooter works great in the wet and cold.

I usually ride the sidewalk at night on a busy street, but with the Neon — you can be seen well on the street with the front light, undercarriage light, and because it has a bright taillight too.

Forget the Uber, take the scooter

The OKAI Neon scooter is so light to carry and faster than being stuck in traffic. I have a 240W power bank I can carry in my backpack — so, especially if your meeting is only a few miles away, I often say: “Forgot the Uber, take the scooter.”

Hop on and ride — no issues, no problems — you’ll love it.
