Yvolution YES Electric Scooter review

Two-minute review

The YES is Yvolution’s first attempt to enter the ever-so-popular electric scooter market. And the Dublin-based company didn’t just copy what worked well for others; instead, it designed one of the most handsome electric scooters we’ve seen in a while that combines vibrant colors, bright lights and the unique Flexpress wooden deck – a real feat for the eyes.

The scooter comes pretty much pre-assembled; all you need to do is screw on the handles, and you’re ready to go. Operating the YES Electric Scooter is equally as easy since there is only one button to press. The LED display is clear and easy to read and shows all the information you need to know about speed, headlights and more.

Speaking of lights: the Yvolution YES has a five-point safety lighting system that includes a bright headlamp, an equally as bright tail light and smaller lights sprinkled around the Flexpress board. You will be seen riding the YES on the street.

And it’s probably the best you’re highly visible because riding the YES Electric Scooter is a somewhat dangerous affair. It’s limited to 25Km / 15.5 miles, just like any other e-scooters, but the brakes are electric and quite powerful. Worse still, you apply them by pressing a small lever that hasn’t got much resistance, which makes braking jerky and abrupt. The rear mudguard can also be used for braking, but that’s also connected to the electric brake, strangely, so you’re not much better off using it.
