The micromobility brand produces a range of electrified two-wheelers, including bikes, scooters and skateboards.

New Zinc Venture is an e-scooter that you can sit down on

Powered by a lithium-ion battery, the Folding Electric Pro takes four hours to charge and is pitched by Zinc as a “regular commuter” aimed at “widening the audience for e-bikes to a younger audience”. 

Zinc’s new model comes with three riding modes, including a walking mode for more leisurely environments. 

Commenting on the launch of the new model, Zinc’s chief operating officer, Chirag Shah said: “The Zinc Folding Electric Eco Pro bike is designed for the practicality of commuting around a city and it can be taken easily on public transport and folded down easily to store at home or at the office.”

The new electric two-wheeler is available to order through Zinc Sports.
