Mobility is the ability to move or be moved freely and easily, but how free? While mobility could mean a lot of different modes of transportation, for example: cars, motorcycles, bicycles, electric scooters and the alike; but as citizens of this world, we are responsible for the welfare of mankind. And if it is a well-known fact that vehicles that use internal combustion engines are responsible for air pollution that comes from daily operations that produce approximately 2.3 kg of CO2 for every 1 liter gas that burns – multiplied by the millions of actual liters burned, then it’s safe to say the air we have on this earth is polluted beyond measure. In fact, studies from Ravalli County in Montana, USA has shown that an hour of automobile idling burns approximately one-fifth of a gallon of gas and releases nearly 4 pounds of CO2 into the air. And excessive amounts of CO2 in the atmosphere can contribute to global warming. This is just an idling automobile, how much more active and constantly running ones?
Cliche as it sounds, Michael Jackson in his hit-single We Are the World, got the chorus right when he sang, “ We are the world, we are the children. We are the ones who make a brighter day, so let’s start giving. There’s a choice we’re making, we’re saving our own lives. It’s true we’ll make a better day, just you and me.”
I bet you were singing that more than reading it, and as good as it sounds, it is true. It all begins with us and it ends with us – or better yet, the generation we leave behind. We need to be accountable and be the ones to make better change for the world we live in, we need to find better options to get where we need to go. One of the sustainable modes of transport are electric scooters, among others.

Mearth, the pioneer in Australian electric scooters that was officially registered in 2016 after brainstorming a ride revolution just the year before, is one of the leading electric scooter brands that Ride Hub Australia carries. Mearth Electric Scooters, meaning Mobility + Earth, is the responsible way to go. What started as one electric scooter, now has multiplied into six, 2 per series.
For this article, we will focus on the first series, the Mearth S.
Mearth S Series: Simple, Straightforward, Superior
The Mearth S series was birthed because of a customer demand, from the need to create a simple electric scooter. Yes, S in Mearth S, stands for simple. Simple, straightforward but still a superior electric scooter. The Mearth S series is uncomplicated, easily understood, presenting no difficulty – just the way an entry–level e-scooter should be.
The Mearth S series has 2 options for e-scooter riders to choose from. The first one would be the classic Mearth S, highly recommended for young adults (as young as 14 years old), designed with fun in mind and safe still a priority, best of all, it also provides the thrill the youngsters crave. Start them young, start them healthy!
In fact, since the Mearth S is a customer demand, perhaps the need for Mearth to create the Mearth S was because parents and guardians dreamed of a wholesome, nature-rounded way to incorporate a new habit of getting the young ones out into the open air instead of a screen-time overdose.
The Mearth S is also the only e-scooter in all of the Mearth series to be lightweight, weighing only 12.5 kg. It is foldable, portable and compact. The maximum load is *100 kg with a maximum speed of *32 km (unlimited) and the maximum range being *25 km, ideally. Of course actual speed depends on all the actual factors involved. The maximum hill climb on the other hand is 15° and while the youngsters might be startled at this amazement, safety is not a problem because this innovative e-scooter has a reliable disc brake system for maximum protection. This is one of the safest and best types of e-scooter brakes in the market. It also has a swappable 36V/ 5AH /180WH battery system. The Mearth S also has a powerful bright light that reflects the road especially when dark. Remember, riders MUST ALWAYS wear safety gear and the approved helmet! Be safe and be a responsible rider!
All in all, the Mearth S is an eye-catcher, it is beautifully black with hot red accents, emphasizing speed and power. The color display screen of the Mearth S is also up-to-date with modern times. Just with one screen, the speed mode and distance traveled can easily be seen and accessed. No wonder why today, it is both the young adults and the entry-level beginners favorite!
Mearth S PRO
The Mearth S Pro electric scooter, just like the Mearth S, runs on a 350 W motor power with 750 W burst output making them both powerful e-scooters that can take its riders to greater lengths.
While the Mearth S Pro share many of the same specifications as the former version, like the same height (pedal to ground) of 110mm, swappable battery options, maximum load of 100 kg, maximum speed of *32 km (unlimited), maximum hill climb of 15°, charging time of 3-4 hours and even the exterior color scheme, the Mearth S PRO also has its unique distinctions.
For one, this fast e-scooter’s max range is 45 km, which is 20 km faster. The tires are also now 10” pneumatic tires compared to 8.5”. It is also a bit heavier, weighing 15 kg, but still portable, foldable and magical with a one-second folding mechanism. Simply fold and lock the stem up or down in just a snap! Literally go anywhere with the Mearth S e-scooter. Be unlimited.
With higher speed, it is a thrilling electric scooter well-designed to help release inhibitions for the young-at-heart, but still durable and safe. If it hasn’t been mentioned, the Mearth S Series disc brakes have passed industry standard testing!
*Disclaimer: Maximum Guaranteed Max speed is 25km/hr, following Australian standards. It can be manually overridden by the user to go up to 32km/hr. Lab tests determined the range based on the weight of the rider (60-70kg) x running speed (between 50%-60%) on a smooth surface, while the speed was determined on the following – weight of rider (60-70kg) on a smooth surface x 100% running speed.
