Build quality and design

Segway ninebot es2 has a great design, but i am not satisfied with the quality of materials used in this scooter. It doesn’t have a top ride quality due to its very hard solid tires and dull combined suspension. Even with the low suspension, the scooter seems good to ride on smooth roads and is quick.

The design of the cockpit and handlebar is beautiful. No doubt, it looks good and has a high-quality finish. The accelerator seems nice and has good mechanical action.

The most components in es2 are not that impressive, but it does not mean that they are bad either.

Is the Ninebot ES2 waterproof?

It is not waterproof but water-resistant. That means you will not have a problem riding in light rain, but it would be best not to use it in heavy rain. Continued exposure to rain will damage the scooter, and the warranty does not cover it. So be careful with the water when using the Ninebot ES2 e-scooter.
