Zinc unveils UK’s first seated e-scooter

Published on: 3rd February 2023

The Zinc e-scooter brand has introduced the UK’s first seated e-scooter, the Zinc Venture Folding E-Scooter, with a top speed of 15.5mph and a battery range of 15 miles.

Boasting many of the features you would expect from a bike including a seat, a frame and mudguards, the Zinc Venture takes all of the benefits of a bike and puts them into an e-scooter. The brand believes the scooter will be suitable for those who might want to sit down while enjoying the benefits of a ride that can be used recreationally and on private land.

With a top speed of 15.5mph and a battery range of 15 miles, the Venture can be charged in four hours. The charging port is located on the underside of the frame and riders simply need to attach the cable to the port. Riders of the Zinc Venture E-scooter can enjoy a variety of speed modes, and there are front and rear safety lights.

The strong, sturdy frame and 14-inch air filled tyres with built-in shock absorbers will provide a smooth and comfortable ride, and a double disc brake ensures that riders come to a safe stop. The new seated e-scooter has a quick folding mechanism for easy portability and storage, essential for carrying when on the move, and a multi-functional LED display which shows speed, range and ride mode. For added stability, the Venture e-scooter also features a kickstand.

Chirag Shah, chief operating officer for Zinc Sports commented: “It was important to us that the Zinc Venture E-scooter has many of the qualities that you would associate with a bike, but in the form of an e-scooter at an accessible price point. We think it will prove popular with those that want to sit down, and when legislation does eventually allow, it will benefit couriers and delivery drivers too.”
