The Sherco EB16 features a simple twist-and-go throttle with a battery level display and a host of safety features to inspire confidence in the young rider aged 5-6 as well as the supervising adult.
Running time is up to 60 minutes of constant use, recharge time is up to three hours. Additional batteries are available for a quick and convenient swap to keep the fun times rolling (runtime will vary depending on speed setting, rider weight and riding conditions).
Technical highlights include a lightweight aluminium frame and handlebar, chain drive, pneumatic all-terrain rubber tyres as well as durable water-transfer frame decals. The EB16 comes with an Australian 240V household charger, owners manual and toolkit.
The EB16 is a great way for children to learn to push, balance, and coast in the non-powered mode, which makes for an excellent, gradual introduction. Once the child demonstrates proficient use and understanding of the brake and the ability to coast and brake while standing then the electric low-power mode via the twist and-go throttle can be introduced.
Additional features include a front plate with number decals, height-adjustable seat, two power level modes (low and full power), a fully-enclosed chain cover, a rear drum brake activated via hand lever, a power cut-off switch built into the brake lever, which automatically cuts power if the rider pulls in the lever, thus preventing a panic throttle twist.
