The A-Ride eScooter: An All-Terrain Scooter

The typical eScooter is driven on sidewalks and allows riders to go short distances through a city setting. However, with the introduction of A-Ride from Alpine Riding, this has changed.

A-Ride is a crossover between an eBike and eScooter. With two all-terrain tires for extra stability and easier navigating, A-Ride can be driven on or off the street. So, whether you’re looking for a mode of transportation to get to and from work, or something to take through the mountains on the weekends, A-Ride is ideal for riders of all ages and skill levels. You can also purchase an optional rear rack for A-Ride, making it easy to transport groceries, bring essentials to the office, or carry your necessities while off-roading.

With more than 18 years of experience in the scooter development industry, we engineered an eScooter that can be enjoyed by all, and isn’t held back by the drawbacks typically associated with traditional electrical scooters.
