Take a ride on the Essential, and you’d never guess it’s the entry level Xiaomi e-scooter. It’s been designed as the ultimate ‘gateway’ electric scooter, offering great value without sacrificing quality or usability. Super portable and lightweight, the Essential is one of the easiest e-scooters to fold up and carry when you need to – up stairs, on and off public transport, or into your home or office.

First timers will love the controllable power delivery and great sense of ‘speedom’ (that’s speed and freedom FYI). The Xiaomi Essential glides along on smooth pneumatic tyres and features a stylish Bluetooth-enabled integrated display unit with three selectable power modes.

Maxing out at around 12.5mph, the Essential has a surprisingly generous 13 mile maximum range, making it ideal for commutes and weekend expeditions around the capital.

LED’s Go!

The neat LED display puts you in charge of your e-scooter, showing your current speed, speed mode, battery levels, Bluetooth connection, and headlight power, all in real time. There’s even an alert for repair warnings. Finding your way around the various display features is super-simple. It’s all controlled with a single button. One tap turns the scooter on, holding the button down for three seconds turns it off. When the scooter's on, a single tap controls the headlights, and two taps help you switch between speed modes.

Stay Pumped

Each 8.5 inch air filled tyre makes for a gliding, smooth ride. So you and your Essential can handle a variety of different terrains, from tarmac to concrete, and even the occasional grass and gravel. Top tip: We recommend keeping an eye on your tyre pressure every week, to steer clear of punctures and tyre damage. Feel free to bring your scooter into one of Milk’s stores for a tyre top up. Or go it alone, and grab one of our handy portable pumps.

Twin Braking Power

The clever combo of electronic front brake and rear mechanical disc brake gives riders the perfect balance of control and regenerative powers. The electronic brake is like the ABS in your car, preventing locking up when braking. And the KERS (that’s Kinetic Energy Recovery System, acronym fans) feature actually makes extra energy to keep your battery levels healthy too. The rear brakes feature strong discs, to give you great speed management, and help you stop suddenly without losing control.

Be Seen

We’re big on safety at Milk. We know that visibility is vital. As well as the built in LED headlamp and rear red reflector LED combo, the Essential boasts bright front, rear and side reflectors for maximum visibility. So you can scoot along, safe in the knowledge you’re meeting European protection standards.
