Just because electric standup scooters are fun doesn’t mean they can’t also be a useful commuting tool or an easy way to dramatically increase mobility in urban settings without resorting to a car or bike. The Glion Adult Li-Ion Battery, Dolly-Fold Scooter is simple, reliable, clean, quiet and built to last. It gets its remarkable power from a 36v 6.6ah rechargeable lithium ion battery and a potent 250-watt brushless hub motor located in the rear wheel. Without chains or gears, it quietly delivers enough boost to move the average adult at up to 15 miles an hour (faster than a runner at full sprint) with a range of up to 15 miles on a full charge. Its durable frame is crafted from 6061-T6 aircraft-grade aluminum, powder coated to resist corrosion and a smooth ride is assured by 8-inch tires featuring a honeycomb interior developed by the military and guaranteed never to go flat. Braking is smooth and secure, with an antilock electronic brake safely located inside the rear hub motor. All the controls are water resistant, convenient and easy to use. On the right, a twist-grip accelerator makes it go; on the left, a twist-grip brake makes it stop. An easy to read handlebar-mounted battery indicator keeps track of battery life. It comes with a pedestrian bell and cover bag. The Glion Electric Scooter weighs only 28 pounds and with its patented vertical self-standing feature, retractable handle and roller wheels you can walk with it like a roller bag suitcase. With its 1 second foot activated folding mechanism, you can quickly fold the scooter and dolly it through public transit or into your office.

Glion, doing business as Probity Cell LLC, was formed in August, 2012. Our mission then as now is to end boring commutes by creating last mile transportation devices that are fun and practical. We successfully introduced our first product, the Glion SmartScooter, on Kickstarter in October of 2014. We had a second successful Kickstarter Campaign in August of 2015 in which we introduced the Glion Dolly Electric Scooter.
Describe your product in 3 words.
End Boring Commutes!
How did you come up with the idea for this product?
Jeff was a San Francisco BART commuter with a long hike between his transit stop and his office. Jeff connected the dots and we began pursuing a “last mile” solution using lithium-ion batteries. We believe that electrifying the transportation sector creates some of the greatest opportunities to reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality and save our planet from climate change.
What makes your product special?
Our latest feature, the patented vertical self-standing dolly, makes the Glion Adult Electric Dolly-Fold Scooter a practical commuting tool or personal transport. When you arrive fold it and store it behind a door. When you’re ready to go, you’re on the move in seconds. Also, our price. Because we are vertically integrated as the manufacturer and the distributor, we have a price advantage versus other lithium ion powered personal electrical mobility devices.
