Carrera have been around for just over 30 years, and in that time, they’ve become one of the biggest and most popular bike and e-bike brands in the UK.

Now, Carrera have funnelled all their expertise into their first e-scooter – the Carrera impel is-1. Bringing market-leading technology to an unrivalled price point, there’s a lot to like. Here’s what you can expect from Carrera’s first e-scooter.

The ultimate e-scooter solution

The Carrera impel isn’t your average e-scooter – it’s the ultimate e-scooter solution, designed for more!

With a market-leading design, it boasts high-level technology only found on the best performance e-scooters – at a price that won’t break the bank.

Carrera e-scooters are also designed to stand the test of time and the impel is protected by a lifetime guarantee on the main frame.

All-weather e-scooter

Few things are certain in life, but one thing we can always rely on is the British weather. Whatever the time of year, a sudden downpour is never too far away – so water resistance matters!

For some e-scooters, this spells the end of the ride. Not for the impel is-1! With an IPX5 waterproof rating, it’s both rain and puddle proof, making it one of the most water-resistant e-scooters on the market.

That means you can enjoy two-wheeled adventures whatever the weather.

An e-scooter with no limits!

Capable of tackling a range of surfaces and helping you reach new surroundings, the Impel is-1 is an e-scooter with no limits!

All of this can be achieved with the help of four speed levels and one walking mode. Choose the best level for the job and then let the Carrera impel do the hard work for you. And even the steepest hills are no match for the Impel with its powerful motor providing superior hill climbing ability.

Throughout your ride, you can monitor key riding data at a glance with the help of the multi-functional display. It’ll provide all the information you need, including speed, power mode and battery.

And with a maximum range of 18.6 miles* and a maximum speed of 15.5mph, there are no limits to the adventures you can enjoy.

Perfect ride quality

Whatever terrain you choose to ride on, you’ll always ride in comfort.

The impel arrives with 8.5” air-filled pneumatic tyres that perfectly absorb the surface. Not only does this increase comfort, but it also creates a steadier ride and greater handling.

Building on this, the impel is designed with an oversized frame and footplate that further improve the balance of the scooter, so you’ll always feel planted when riding and cornering.

An everyday solution

Not every ride has to be an adventure and the impel is also a convenient option.

For those moments when you need to store it away or hop on public transport, you can fold the scooter down in seconds using the quick-folding mechanism.

Unlike other e-scooters, the impel is also easy to carry as it’s been cleverly designed to have even weight distribution throughout the scooter.

Complete safety package

Carrera have put rider safety at the forefront of the impel’s design.

This starts with a powerful dual disc braking system that is unique to the impel at this price point. These discs provide reliable braking power so the rider will always feel in control, and you can be confident that you’ll come to a smooth and safe stop.

Rider safety isn’t the only thing taken into consideration, and the impel has an in-built electronic alarm system and cable lock to help deter opportunistic thieves. It’s a clever addition that you won’t find on other e-scooters.

The safety package doesn’t end there and the scooter is equipped with bright front, rear and brake lights plus reflectors for greater visibility.

Easy maintenance

When designing the impel is-1, every aspect of the design was meticulously thought out.

It’s even designed to be easy to maintain. How? For a start, the impel benefits from split rims. This makes it much easier to fix a puncture. The cable disc brakes are also designed to be easily adjustable.

It’s these finer details that separate the impel from other e-scooters – making it one of the best on the market!
