The Unagi Model One E500 Dual Motor Electric Scooter combines a unique style with performance and ease-of-use. Unagi have created a dynamic and powerful electric scooter complete with a plethora of additional features. The range of the Unagi Model One E500 is an impressive 24.95 km (15.5 miles).
The magnesium alloy handlebar is a feat of structural engineering that required more than thirty prototypes to perfect. Integrated in the top bar are the intuitive controls of the dashboard – throttle, brake, horn, and LED headlight. No visible wires. No bulky console. Just a sleek, integrated command center that connects the rider to the ride.
Why Magnesium? It’s 33% lighter than aluminium, which partially explains why the Unagi is one of the most portable scooters on the market. The First “One Click” Folding ScooterPress one button and the Unagi patented stainless steel hinge system folds and locks in one smooth, satisfying click. This engineering breakthrough makes it dramatically easier to fold and carry than most other scooters on the market.
The Unagi Model One E500 has a dedicated 250 watt motor in each wheel, supplying 500 watts and 32 newton meters of torque so you can easily tackle hills with up to 15 degree inclines. Unagi’s motors are completely custom-built utilising rare-earth neodymium magnets and a monitoring system to prevent overheating. These motors have been painstakingly optimised for performance, efficiency, responsiveness and longevity.
One gentle push on the ergonomically optimised lever and the dual electronic anti-lock brakes bring you to a safe, steady stop. Both on the accelerator and brakes, Unagi built variability into their controls so pushing down further increases their action. Additionally, the Unagi Model One E500 also features an intuitive friction brake, allowing users to adjust their riding style to a more classic “foot braking” position at their pleasure.
Unagi is powered by high quality electric batteries that they continually strive to improve. Coupled to their custom designed management system it provides the highest energy density and lowest charging time of any battery its size. Like everything on Unagi scooters, longevity, and reliability are absolute primary focus. The batteries will last for many years with continuous daily use, and then be easily replaced at home.
You’ll always see and be seen even in low-visibility nighttime conditions with a flush-mounted 47 lumen LED front light and a rear blinking red LED.
Unagi leverages TORAY carbon fiber from Japan to strike an unprecedented balance of lightweight and heavy-duty strength. The composite is anisotropic, a technical term meaning it’s laid down by hand in a painstaking process that optimises strength by distributing layers of the fibre where it’s needed most. You don’t have to tell your friends that your scooter uses the same carbon fiber as Elon Musk’s Space-X rockets, but we can’t blame you if you did.
By combining a singular piece of machined aluminium with embedded silicon on the top surface for traction, the scooter deck achieves an ideal combination of rigidity and comfort. But what’s missing from this equation? The seams, joints, stitches, bulk, scratchy sandpaper grips, and harsh metal finish that comes standard with other scooters.
Run your hands over an Unagi electric scooter and you’ll instantly notice the perfect paint finish.
