The second generation of the Pure Air Pro electric scooter has just launched, and it now features a redesigned handlebar with the display fitted in the middle. It also comes with a bigger motor that provides better acceleration, plus a bigger battery to travel longer. The Pure Air Pro electric scooter is a leading British brand that offers a comfortable, stable, and quick commute. What’s more, it comes with smart capabilities for more convenience. If you’re interested in buying this e-scooter, here’s what you need to know.
Pure Air Pro: Price and Availability
As noted, Pure is a British brand that’s known for innovative designs when it comes to e-scooters. The Pure Air Pro electric scooter cost £679.99 (around $890) when it went on sale in early August 2020. But the prices have now been slashed, and one can get the e-scooter for £599 (roughly $785) on the Pure Scooters website. Deliveries are currently ongoing, and interested customers can make orders online.

Pure Air Pro: Design
The Pure Air Pro comes with 10-inch wheels and air-filled tires to provide a safer and comfortable ride. Unlike solid tires, the air-filled tires offer improved ride quality and better grip. The tires also come with a puncture prevention fluid, which reduces the risk of a flat while out and about.
The company boasts of a premium build quality with its sleek and redefined finish. The sturdy frame can support a maximum load of 120kg, including the rider and luggage. The chassis is large and reinforced, and the grippy deck provides underfoot stability, reducing the chances of a crash.
The scooter weighs 16.5 kg, which is heavier than most of its rivals. Its dimensions are 115cm x 50cm x 120cm, making it quite big. However, its length makes it secure to foot on. And the handlebars, which feel pretty heavy, give you better control.
You get a charging port on the bottom of the board, along with the kickstand, which offers sturdy support for the scooter. Pure Air Pro is Pure’s first water-resistant e-scooter, rater IP65. This means that you can use it in dusty and wet weather with less to worry about. The best part is that the scooter’s tech can easily be serviced by hand if something needs replacing. For instance, if the battery gives out or you want to change it, you can easily do it yourself.
The display has three buttons: one for the lights, another for adjusting the riding mode, and the last one for switching the scooter on and off. The display is backlit, which makes it visible when riding at night.
Pure Air Pro: Portability
The Pure Air Pro electric scooter is foldable for you to take it with you anywhere. To fold it, simply flip the catch on the front, and clasp it on the back wheel, and you’re good to go. However, at around 17kg, we’d imagine some people might have trouble carrying it around.
Another downside is that there’s nowhere on the scooter that makes it easy to tie a lock around. This might pose a safety concern leaving it outside.
Pure Air Pro: Battery
The factory estimations put the range at 31 miles (50km). However, in the real world, the range may drop to less than that. As with any other electric scooter, the battery life between charges depends on how fast you go.
In Eco mode, which is the slowest speed option, you can travel close to the maximum range. Go any faster, and you can barely make it past 36 km. Other factors that may affect battery life include hills, how frequently you stop, and the load you might be carrying.
Pure Air Pro: Performance
The Pure Air Pro electric scooter comes with three riding modes:
- Eco, which has a maximum speed of 9.3 mph (15 km/h), and preserves the battery the longest.
- Mid, which can take you at 12.4 mph (20 km/h).
- High, which can reach top speeds of 15.5 mph (25km/h), which happens to be the UK’s legal speed limit for scooters.
The Pure Pro Air’s power comes from a 500W rear wheel motor that’s capable of going beyond the 25 km/h top speed. This is an upgrade from the previous version, which had a 350W motor, meaning you get 43 percent more power on this model. The acceleration is slower than other brands, buts it’s a good thing since it can be hard to control the scooter when you suddenly shoot forward from a standstill.
Generally, the Pure Air Pro is impressively quiet even when going uphill or at top speeds. While the price might be a bit steep for most people, it’s a worthy investment, given its sturdiness, impressive range, and stability.
