Build quality of Swagger 5 is solid. The rubberized deck is 17.4” by 6”, which is on the smaller side, but it still provides enough room for standing. Aluminium alloy frame keeps the scooter lightweight, but it is sturdy enough and does not feel flimsy at all.
A nice LED display shows the battery level, current speed and Bluetooth status. For more, there is a smartphone app, but more on it later. There is a single button just under the display to power the scooter on, control speed mode and turn the lights on.
Considering that this is one of the least expensive electric scooters, it’s expected that some parts feel and look cheap. For example, the brake lever feels plastic-y, the cover for the charging port will fall off very soon,
A big weak point of this scooter is the fact that it does not have any suspension. Pneumatic tires do a good job compensating the lack of springs, and to be honest, this is not an off-road scooter, it is designed for flat paved roads only.
