Decent is a UK-based electric scooter distributor that offers gimmick-free electric scooters. Run by a tight bunch of electric enthusiasts from tech entrepreneurs to cycling professionals. Between them, they ride everything from the humble electric bike right through to the not-for-everyone electric unicycle. Honestly, you should check these electric unicycles out. They're crazy. They love what they do and like The Electric Future, believe that electric scooters are the future of personal transport. Easily accessible with a good mix of practicality and affordability they offer the perfect balance in electric personal transport.
They dump the usual bells and whistles that you would expect from a brand like Xiaomi, offering a simplified scooter experience. The folks at Decent love educating people on the practicalities of the electric scooter offering advice on riding and maintaining their Decent Electric Scooters. We're going to look at two of their models, the Decent One and the Decent One Max and why you'll fall in love with the No Frills UK brand.
For those that like the simple things in life we have the Decent One Electric Scooter. Stripped of all the frills, this scooter lands looking sleek and cool with an uncomplicated design. Landing with enough features to whet the appetite of most serious electric scooter riders. What it lacks in appointments it makes up in pure electric quality.
With a top speed of 25 Km/h (15.5 mph), it'll happily scoot along with ease and grace. For corners and obstacles, you can bring it down to 6 mph and 9 mph for more control. These three speed modes allow full control over the Decent One Electric scooter giving you complete confidence when navigating the way. All of these speeds can be combined with the scooter's cruise control for a fully chilled glide.
The powerful 350-watt motor gives the Decent One Electric Scooter no challenge when it comes to hills. A max climb angle of 20% allows easy ascending of even the most stubborn of hills.
With a range of up to 20 Km (12 Miles), this scooter can be ridden for a decent distance before a recharge. One thing we love about the Decent One is that the battery can be removed. No awkward lifting the scooter inside to charge. Just remove the battery and plug it in.
What's more, it only takes 2-3 hours for a full charge. Have a nap or a bite while you wait.
For ultimate ride comfort the Decent One arrives with a pair of 10" chunky anti-skid tyres. Larger than your standard 8.5" tyres, not only do these tyres keep you stuck safely to the road but thanks to its 10" size give the electric scooter a bump-free ride. Being pneumatic adds to the smoothness of the ride. And if you do get a puncture, the inner tube and tyres are easily available.
The solid black coloured frame folds down with ease and it lands with a weight of only 13 Kg which is incredibly light for a Scooter of this size. A max ride weight of 100 Kg allows extras to be carried. A picnic or another Decent One Scooter perhaps?
Those clever experts at Decent HQ have added three brakes to the Decent One Electric Scooter. A front electric brake, a rear disc brake, and a not-so-secret rearguard brake for emergencies. I love this little detail.
Additional features include a grippy footplate, lights and a bell completing the safety features on this scooter. A bright LED offers up all the information you need.
For those of you that think smartphones are for losers then this electric scooter is definitely for you. A lot of the scooters use apps, well the Decent One doesn't. It's an app free scooter with enough features to give you a fully decent ride. See what I did there? Furthermore, you'll find the price of this scooter extremely affordable. A solid sleek electric scooter at an amazing price!
Turning up a notch from the Decent One is the Decent One Max Electric Scooter. Featuring a classic black finish and again with a no-frills outlook, the Decent One Max Electric Scooter is a formidable beast.
Like the Decent One, the Decent One Max comes with a top speed of 25 Km/h (15.5 mph). Great for gliding along without a care in the world! You can bring it down to 6 mph and 9 mph for more scooter control and like the Decent One you can use the cruise control on all three of the speed modes.
The Decent One Max has a bigger battery than the Decent One giving it a huge range of 39 Km (24 Miles) making this the scooter if you love to travel. A lot. And when you do need to charge the One Max up, you can easily remove the battery and plug it in inside. No awkward folding down and bringing it so it's next to the plug.
Due to its larger capacity, the battery on the Decent One Max electric scooter takes longer to charge. A full charge can take up to 6 hours. So where you gain in the range you lose in battery charging time. It's a fair compromise.
The powerful 350-watt motor gives the Decent One Max Electric Scooter a max climb angle of 20%. Those pesky hills are no more, as you glide up with the grace of a butterfly.
Landing with a duo of 10" chunky anti-skid tyres you'll notice the ride on this Decent electric scooter smooth and bump-free. The pneumatic tyres have valves and can be pumped up like a standard car tyre. If you do get a puncture, all the inner tubes and tyres are readily available.
The whole electric scooter can be folded down easily and quickly. It has a slightly larger weight than the Decent One, weighing a total of 15 Kg. Which is still pretty good.
The stylish black frame folds down quickly and the whole electric scooter can take a maximum ride weight of 100 Kg. Perfect for carrying an extra battery right?
The Decent One Max has the same three brakes as the Decent One. A front electric brake, a rear disc brake, and a backup rearguard brake for emergencies.
Extra safety features include lights, a bell, and a footplate that's made from a grippy material. It also has mudguards and a bright LED display showing speed, mode and battery capacity. Everything you need to know without the fuss.
If you're the type of person that loves long adventures with their electric scooter, then the Decent One Max is perfect for you. Still, a fair and affordable price doesn’t break the bank. And like I said before if you're not someone that uses a smartphone then worry not, as this doesn’t use one.
Both of these scooters tick the boxes of a no-frills machine. The ethos at Decent HQ is great. No fuss, just great useful features for ultimate fun electric scooters.
In the lower price bracket to some electric scooters on the market, they certainly aren't cheap in design. Stripped away from the nonsense and what you've got left is a pair of delightful electric scooters for those of you that just want to enjoy the ride. Without connecting it to a Bluetooth speaker.
