The MiniFalcon scooter is surprisingly fast and easy to carry
Most forms of personal transport are lean and green. But trying to find somewhere to park your bike or scooter can be a problem. The MiniFalcon solves this with a folding design. It’s lightweight and surprisingly fast.
- How far can you ride on an electric scooter? It varies between models, but most can do in excess of five miles nowadays.
- Are electric scooters easy to ride? Very. You simply point the front wheel and squeeze the throttle. You can’t go above 15-25 mph, and many have shock-absorbers to smooth the ride.
- Which electric scooter is the easiest to transport? The MiniFalcon is a full adult-sized scooter that is designed to fold up small enough to fit inside a backpack.
If you were to travel back in time a couple of decades, you would notice that many things look different. One of the minor details you might encounter would be every kid riding a mini scooter. These tiny speed machines were cheap, nimble and easy to fold up and carry over a shoulder. You can think of MiniFalcon as the modern-day, grown-up reincarnation. This powerful electric scooter is made for adults, but it folds up small enough to carry in your backpack.
What are the benefits of commuting with an electric scooter?
If you currently drive to work every morning, you will be familiar with traffic jams and packed parking lots. It’s quicker than walking, but the price is significant, both financially and for the planet.
With the MiniFalcon, traffic doesn’t matter. You don’t need a parking spot, and you won’t have to buy more gas at the end of every week. This zippy e-scooter was made for flying through the city streets and squeezing into the office.
On the road, the MiniFalcon can hit 16mph thanks to an almost-silent 250W motor. The scooter has three gears and a digital display providing vital info. You have a range of around nine miles on a full battery, with a kinetic recovery system harvesting energy while you glide or brake.
Speaking of slowing down, the MiniFalcon has an easy-to-use anti-locking footbrake. If you encounter any bumps in the road, the puncture-proof tires and built-in shock absorber should take the hit.

Impressive though these features are, they are supporting acts to the MiniFalcon’s main event.
When you arrive at your destination, the aluminum frame folds down to measure just 23 inches long. With the supplied carry bag, you can easily hop on the subway or walk into your office without anyone realizing how you got there.
This avoids the problems associated with parking electric bikes, and means you won’t clutter the office with your ride.
“MiniFalcon is made of aerospace grade anodized aluminum, which makes it extremely strong and lightweight. The lighter weight lets it quickly accelerate and quickly stop on a dime, while the material strength lets MiniFalcon hold up to 220 lbs with zero deformity.” — MiniFalcon on Indiegogo
