Electric Scooters or E-Scooters are taking the world by Storm... see what we did there :) First it was E-Bikes, but they are very costly for a good one, and to be honest you are still pedaling and getting sweaty.
E Scooters are the next wave, they are cost effective, practical, convenient, and look bloody awesome!
Our Adult Electric Scooters are specially designed to eat up with ease virtually any terrain you can throw at them - be it gravel, grass, hard sand, steep hills, all of our products eat it all up with power to spare!
So Easy to Ride & Use! Storm Rides has the perfect electric scooter for every occasion
Choose from the range of hand selected high quality e scooters. We visit our supplier factories in China in person to maintain the relationship and personally inspect the quality.
The Utterly Epic WideWheel Pro 2020: Storm Rides are the official Mercane WideWheel Pro Importer & Distributor for the New Zealand market. When you buy a Guaranteed Authentic WideWheel Pro from Storm you can rest assured you are getting the Genuine Article!
Beware of unofficial parallel imported WideWheels - we have no idea what factory they come from or to what standards they are being constructed... plus they usually come with a 6 month warranty (which we are pretty sure is illegal under NZ Consumer Law anyway...) They may also come with some nasty surprises.
If you are going to be flying along at 40 km/h you want to be damn sure you know you are on a Genuine WideWheel Pro
PLEASE NOTE: We are only able to provide genuine parts and support to Genuine WideWheel Pro Scooters purchased from Storm Rides (yes we will know as they all have serial numbers). So do yourself a favour and invest in the original.
The Incredible Market Leading Storm Cruiser Fat Tyre Scooter: Low centre of gravity and super stable, 100% Hand operated controls. Easy lifting centre stand. Super low deck for easy step through. Low seat height so you can stop with both feet down, no leaning or weight imbalance.
The Storm Cruiser has been through years of testing and iterations beginning in 2015 with the first demos. Over the years the battery capacity has almost doubled from 12ah to 20ah, we have added rear suspension, a new headlight, every step of the way we are seeking to increase the quality and durability of the flagship Cruiser Product - you can expect more developments in this model.
Innovative Seated Fold-able Storm Nano: Sometimes you see the hole in the market and it seems like nobody is going to fill it, they are all too busy making same same kick scooters... SO we did it ourselves, we hand selected a factory in China that makes ebikes for major Japanese brands... and the rest is history... well actually there was a hell of a story involved especially after the intercity bullet train was full so we had to get getting hundreds of kilometres across China in a death trap mobile, which only one of us caught the other one was buying KFC (haha) and was left behind so the factory owner had to make chase, all so we could catch our plane back to NZ the next day - come see us in person if you want that story! :)
The Pioneers of Fat Tyre Scooters in NZ, we have been doing this for 5 years - testing multiple products, testing multiple factories -you wouldn't believe the rubbish we were sent, when we looked inside at the electronics and components used it was cringe-worthy, we tested them and had huge failure rates (unfortunately we see these SAME units on sale in NZ now), building relationships and most of all riding the heck out of our e-scooters ourselves so we know we can stand by them!
Fortunately we discovered a factories that make high quality scooters and ebikes as their primary products, have years of experience, and already sell in volume into other markets including western markets with higher quality control standards. After some negotiating we locked in exclusivity for our region (not just NZ) and with the best product on the market we were underway!
You wouldn't believe the quality control we went through - our Electric Scooters have been torn apart by a 30 year veteran Auto-Electrician with significant electric car servicing experience - He liked it so much he finally bought a Storm Cruiser... then after hammering that for 12 months (over 40km round trip per day, rain hail or shine - this guy is a legend!) passed it to his wife and is about to take delivery of an upgrade to the latest model Cruiser S (sporting a larger 20ah and removable battery, plus rear shocks).
A lot goes into getting electronics right and we all know that there are factories in China which will make the biggest pile of cr@p just to make a buck, and unscrupulous sellers on auction sites in NZ who will bring in said pieces of cr@p and flog them off to unsuspecting customers with no parts held in NZ, and a dodgy/short/limited/or non-existent warranty - it's a damn shame!
We hold a comprehensive catalogue of parts in stock (at great cost to us to hold them all in NZ), have an auto electrician on call who knows these things inside and out - BUT we reserve those resources for OUR customers (we sadly get multiple phone calls every week from people who bought a sub-standard scooter elsewhere which broke (surprise, surprise) and are now stuck looking for parts/service/repairs as they are getting none from where they bought it (surprise, surprise) - the answer is: Sorry No, we can't get our parts to fit other brands of similar style scooter. Our parts are for our brand. If you buy from us you know you are going to be looked after.
So if you want The Best Quality Scooters and Support in NZ, Original Products, Genuine Parts, with full 12 month NZ backed warranty, all parts stocked in NZ, dedicated NZ support, Nationwide dealer network - then look no further!
We are constantly running out of stock - don't be disappointed - Get your order in today!!

NB: Scooters fall into the same legal area as other new Personal Electric Vehicles (PEVs) including most Segways, electric skateboards, and ebikes over 300w, so are often only legally usable for off-road / private land use only - please check the up to date laws and consider that before purchasing.
