8 Best Electric Scooters For Tall Adults – Specific For Your Exact Height And Price Range

side view of the Turbowheel Hornet, the best electric scooter for tall adults because of its large deck-to-handlebar height of 44 in / 112 cm when fully extended

There are not that many electric scooters for tall adults. My cousin, who is 194 cm / 6’4” tall, can’t really ride my Xiaomi M365 Pro without slouching.

Most brands build their scooters for the average person, and tall people often have trouble finding scooters. Luckily, some brands make scooters for taller people as well. They take into account their height, the fact that they usually have longer arms, and often their possibly bigger weight as well.

I went through all the data and personal experiences with many electric scooters to find the best models for tall people. These are the best electric scooters for tall people, based on their height and budget.

Let’s look at each of the best models in more detail, and see when is each the perfect choice. In the end, we’ll go over some common questions that tall riders might have.

Best value electric scooter for tall people – Turbowheel Pacer

front diagonal view of a black Turbowheel Pacer with red details

All things considered, the Turbowheel Pacer offers the most value for tall riders.

This is a very tall scooter, to begin with. At 133 cm / 52 in from the ground, the Turbowheel Pacer is the tallest electric scooter in the world right now!

Naturally, it has an adjustable handlebar height. You will get a height of 52 in / 133 cm when the handlebar is set at the highest level.

With 10 inch tires, and a deck about 8+ / 20+ cm in above the ground, this scooter has a deck-to-handlebar height of 43 in / 110 cm. That puts it among the few scooters suitable for even the tallest of people. (The exact data point for this model was not available, and this is a calculation from its general height and tire size).

Pretty much everyone above 6 feet / 180 cm will be able to ride this scooter after adjusting the height of the handlebar to suit them.

It can carry 280 lbs / 127 kg on its deck without a problem. Hence, it’s not only good for tall people, but for heavy people too.

Even if Turbowheel didn’t build this scooter for tall people in mind, it would still be a great value scooter.

With a top speed of 30 mph / 48 kmh, and a range of amazing 40 mi / 64 km, it has literally all that you may ever ask from a scooter. It costs around $1399, and you can find it at the EWheels store here.

Best electric scooter for people 7+ feet / 215+ cm tall – Turbowheel Hornet

side view of a black Turbowheel Hornet

The Turbowheel Hornet has the highest handlebar height out of all the electric scooters today. The distance from the deck of the Turbowheel Hornet to the top of its handlebars is 44 in / 112 cm when at the highest level.

That’s why this scooter is the only chance for anyone 7 feet / 215 cm tall or more.

The maximum load it can carry is 300 lbs / 136 kg, which makes it great for people on the heavier side as well.

Of course, this scooter has an adjustable handlebar. Pretty much any tall person, or a person of medium stature, can ride it without issues.

The Turbowheel Hornet is an extraordinary scooter. Besides being great for tall or heavy people, it is one of the best high-end scooters in general.

For the price of $1349, it will give you a range of 38 mi / 60 km on a single charge. You can develop speeds of up to 28 mph / 45 kmh with it. A truly powerful scooter indeed.

Best electric scooter for people around 6 feet 8 inches / 203 cm tall – Qiewa QMini

side view of a black and red Qiewa Q Mini

Not only is the Qiewa QMini a good scooter for tall people, but it’s also a good scooter for big people in general.

The Qiewa series caters to heavy adults. Some of their models have weight capacities of 550 lbs / 250 kg, or even 660 lbs / 300 kg!

The Qiewa QMini has 330 lbs / 150 kg, which is not as good as its peers, but still very accomodating to heavier adults.

The reason why this scooter is good for tall people is the 42 in / 107 cm deck-to-handlebar height. (The exact data point for this model was not available, and this is a calculation from its general height and tire size).

It is one of the best scooters for tall people, only a few centimeters below the tallest models. Of course, the handlebar height can be adjusted for someone not as tall. This scooter stands 48 in / 121 cm tall in general.

The Qiewa QMini is a mini-monster. A very well-balanced scooter, it has a top speed of 38 mph / 60 kmh, and a range of 38 mi / 60 km.

You simply gotta love this scooter. If you are tall and you can afford it, you should really think about getting it. It will cost you around $1029, and you will own one of the best, coolest, most powerful electric scooter models in existence.

Where to buy the Qiewa QMini from?

Worldwide
At the moment, it seems like the Qiewa QMini is not available in any store, and there’s no telling when it might be back. You can see the official Qiewa store, but the scooter has been sold out for quite a long time already.

Best electric scooter for people around 6 feet 4 inches / 193 cm tall – Levy Plus

diagonal side view of a black and green Levy Plus electric scooter

If you are around the 6 feet 4 inches / 193 cm mark, then the Levy Plus will be a good choice for you.

It stands 46 in / 117 cm off the ground. Its handlebar is not adjustable, but it’s at a distance of 41 in / 104 cm off the deck. (The exact data point for this model was not available, and this is a calculation from its general height and tire size).

That should make it a good choice for many tall people, although if you’re in the tallest category, I still suggest taking a look at the Turbowheel Hornet.

For the price of around $699, the Levy Plus will come with a range of 22 mi / 35 km, and a top speed of 18 mph / 30 kmh. It can carry a load of 230 lbs / 104 kg on its deck.

Where to buy the Levy Plus from?

The Levy Plus scooter is only available in the US and Canada for now. The only place to buy it from is the official Levy store. They will provide free shipping, but tax costs of up to $50 may be added.

Best electric scooter for people around 6 feet / 182 cm tall – Xiaomi M365 Pro

Xiaomi M365 Pro standing on a stand in a living room

Xiaomi M365 Pro is, without a doubt, one of the most popular electric scooters ever. Of course, that means it will be suitable for a large variety of people.

It has a height of 46.5 in / 118 cm. The deck is situated at 4.5 in / 11 cm off the ground, or about one half the height of the 8.5-inch wheels.

That gives it a handlebar height of 39 in / 98 cm. It is the perfect fit for most medium to almost-tall people.

You should note that this is the only scooter on this list that doesn’t have an adjustable handlebar. You will not be able to change the height of it, unless you’re willing to try out the height extender customization (you can find the part on Amazon, it’s usually very cheap).

If you’re interested in getting this scooter but need it to be shorter or taller, ask your reseller for a stem of a different length. They may happen to have one and will be happy to accommodate you.

With a maximum carry load of 220 lbs / 100 kg, it’s not exactly ideal for heavy riders. As we said, it is meant to be a massively popular scooter, and it’s built for the everyday person.

The Xiaomi M365 Pro needs no long reintroductions. With a great price of $550, it will give you a very strong range of 28 mi / 45 km and a top speed of 15 mph / 25 kmh.

If you are curious about this scooter, make sure to see my Xiaomi M365 Pro review.

Where to buy the Xiaomi M365 Pro from?

USA, EU
When ordering from the US, or most European countries, this store on Banggood provides the best terms, including free shipping and very fast delivery times.

Canada
Seems like the only place where the Xiaomi M365 Pro is easily available in Canada is from TekTrendy. The scooter will arrive very fast (possibly within 24 hours), and there will be no additional shipping or other costs.

UK, Australia, New Zealand, Philippines, Asia, Worldwide
Another store on Banggood has excellent coverage and conditions for the Xiaomi M365 Pro for the UK, Australia, New Zealand, most of Asia, often including free shipping to most places in the world!

Alternatives
If none of the stores above have the Xiaomi M365 Pro in stock for your region, you can try AliExpress or GeekBuying, they both have good coverage, often provide free shipping, and usually have many items in stock.

Best electric scooter for tall people under $1500 – EMove Cruiser

front diagonal view of a black EMove Cruiser with red details leaning on a stand

Priced at $1399, the EMove Cruiser is your perfect scooter for tall people under $1500.

Its handlebar height of 39 in / 100 cm will accommodate most tall people (although not the tallest ones). (The exact data point for this model was not available, and this is a calculation from its general height and tire size).

The handlebar height is adjustable. Its maximum height is 46 in / 118 cm when the handlebar is set up at the top level.

The EMove Cruiser is an excellent mid-priced scooter. With the unreal range of 62 mi / 100 km on a single charge, there is no place where you can’t go with it.

Its top speed is 28 mph / 45 kmh. Its powerful 1600 Watt motor can provide more, but it’s limited to that number.

The weight capacity of the EMove Cruiser is at a whopping 350 lbs / 160 kg, which makes it the best scooter for people that are both tall and heavy.

This is one of the few true waterproof scooters, with an IP rating of IP67. That’s as high as any scooter has today, and it means it can be fully submerged into water and still continue to work afterward. Check the full EMove Cruiser review to find out more about this one-of-a-kind scooter.

Where to buy the EMove Cruiser from?

Worldwide
The best (and probably only) place to get the EMove Cruiser from is the official Voromotors store (make sure to enter the code “escooternerds” without quotes for a 7% discount). As one of the most trusted brands in the industry, they do a great job and ship very fast. Shipping is free within the USA and it will take between 2 and 4 days. For other countries the usual expenses are added to the original price ($250 for the UK, $200 – $300 for most EU countries, $100 for Canada, $350 for Australia, ~$300 for the Philippines and Asia), and the waiting times will be between 3 days and 2 weeks.

Best electric scooter for tall people under $750 – Inokim Mini 2

The Inokim Mini 2 is a solid choice if you’re looking for a tall person scooter under $750.

However, it comes with a very low load capacity of 165 lbs / 75 kg, which may limit its use by tall people that are also on the heavier side. If you weigh more than 176 lbs / 80 kg, I suggest looking at other scooters from this list.

Coming with an adjustable handlebar, this scooter is 45 in / 114 cm when at its highest. Also, at that position, the handlebar height is around 42 in / 106 cm, which is simply perfect for most tall people. (The exact data point for this model was not available, and this is a calculation from its general height and tire size).

The Inokim Mini 2 will provide you with a range of 17 mi / 28 km, and a top speed of 15 mph / 25 kmh. It will cost you $748.

Frequently asked questions

These are some of the most frequently asked questions from tall scooter rides.

How to choose an electric scooter for tall people?

Most sources online recommend electric scooters for bigger people solely based on their weight. While tall people are sometimes heavier, that’s not always the case.

The weight capacity of the scooter should also be a factor if you are on the larger side. However, it’s not the only factor by any means.

If you’re tall, you must take all the following factors into account:

  • your height
  • your arm length
  • your weight

Many people are tall and skinny. If they get an electric scooter for “big” people, they will be making a mistake. Scooters for heavy people have some overlap with scooters for tall people, but they’re not the same thing.

The most important features of the scooter that tall people should consider should be its handlebar height, and whether that can be adjusted.

That was the starting criteria we used in selecting these scooters. That’s why they are truly the perfect option for every category of tall people.

In any case, you will always want to get a scooter with an adjustable height. That way, you will be able to find your perfect height, and also let your friends and family ride your scooter as well.

How to find out your ideal handlebar height?

The general rule of thumb is, the handlebar height of your scooter should be at the level of your belly button.

There are other methods to determine this too. They can be much more accurate for your specific body frame and build. Check out our guide to learn what is your perfect handlebar height.

How tall are electric scooters on average?

The average electric scooter height today is 39 in / 99.05 cm. It is derived from the data of 110 electric scooter models. You can check the entire research here.

How can I adjust the height of my electric scooter?

First of all, your scooter needs to have this ability. 7 out of 10 scooters will have this ability.

You will have an easy time adjusting the height of the handlebar. You will most likely have to just open a latch, select your height level, and close the latch back.

In some instances, you will have to use a wrench or an Allen key.
