Pros & Cons
The E-Glide G60 in Australia (also called Levy in other countries) has been bringing practical and powerful e-scooters to the market. Specifically, the E-Glide G60 is one of their most popular units due to its practicality, affordability, and ease of use. It offers all the basics that you need in an e-scooter, such as good speed, range, safety features, and controls.
However, what makes the E-Glide G60 stand out from the rest is its removable battery, which allows riders to remove the battery easily from the stem and switch it with a new one. Riders have the assurance and convenience of switching their batteries if they run out of battery midway through their trip.

The E-Glide G60 speed follows the speed limit implemented by most electric scooter laws in Australia. It tops at 25 km/h and features three speed modes. The first speed mode provides the slowest speed setting, riding at around 9-10 km/h. This speed is perfect for beginners who are starting to learn how to manoeuvre an e-scooter.
The second speed offers a better speed that can be used for riding around the city. Finally, the third speed setting tops out at 25 km/h and is recommended if you are riding long ranges. Overall, check with your city’s e-scooter speed limit to avoid getting penalised or receiving a fine.
The E-glide G60 scooter delivers up to 25 km, which is a decent range that most commuter e-scooters offer. However, take note that the maximum range of an e-scooter depends on several factors. Your weight and riding style will significantly affect the maximum range your e-scooter can produce. Nonetheless, the G60 offers enough range for short trips and daily rides.
The E-Glide G60 offers a very portable body, weighing only 12.5 kg and having a compact size. Plus, it includes a foldable stem, allowing you to store it in small spaces and carry it anywhere. However, some people might find the stem too thick to hold. After all, the stem houses the battery. It is a minor concern that will not be an issue if you don’t mind it.
The e-scooter provides decent and comfortable ride quality while riding on flat surfaces. However, you can feel its lack of suspension when riding on uneven or rough paths. It can rattle a bit while riding on rough roads, but you will not feel any wobbliness from the stem and other parts. Overall, it provides well-built e-scooter parts that provide a comfortable and stable ride quality.
The E-Glide G60 scooter features a unique battery system that few electric scooters in the market offer. You can remove the battery easily via the stem. Simply lift the display screen, twist the lock open, and pull out the battery. You can replace it whenever you run out of battery as long you carry a spare battery with you. This is convenient for people who are always on the go or want to extend their trips.
Dashboard and Controls
The E-Glide G60’s cockpit features a simple and easy-to-use dashboard. It includes a bright i-Sight display screen, a power button, a button for the light and speed mode, a thumb throttle, a brake lever, and the handlebars. For the handlebars, you may also opt to extend your handlebars by replacing them with longer handlebars. Overall, the controls are placed within reach and intuitively, making them easy to use while riding.
The E-Glide G60 features a slim and minimalist design. However, it is still distinct from other models in the market. For one, it features a thick stem and a thinner deck since the stem holds the battery. It also includes a front light and a taillight that also serves as a brake light. Plus, it has an IP54 rating.
The 8.5-inch pneumatic tyres of the E-Glide G60 provide good cushioning while riding. Although it can be a little bit rattling on uneven paths, the tyres do a good job of absorbing the shocks and making the ride as smooth as possible. However, keep in mind that the tyres could wear down easily if you ride them on rough roads often. After all, the tyres are not made for off-roading.
Lastly, this electric scooter uses a front electric brake and a rear disc brake. It also includes a safety feature where the e-scooter stops even when you are still pressing on the accelerator. This is very helpful during emergencies. Some e-scooters don’t include this feature. Overall, the brakes provide enough grip to decelerate in a matter of seconds.
The E-Glide G60’s popularity comes from its light weight, ease of use, portability, and decent performance. It has all the basics that you need for an everyday e-scooter. Moreover, it only sells for $699. The affordable price and the decent specs make it an attractive choice for many commuters on a budget.
So, if you need an e-scooter that is inexpensive and practical, the E-Glide G60 is highly recommended. Even if you get 25 km per charge, the removable battery allows you to extend your trips by switching batteries as you go. Overall, it is a very convenient electric scooter for those who need quick and efficient daily transport in the city.
