COSTA MESA, Calif., August 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- SWAGTRON™, the undisputed leader in electric rideables, today introduces the Swagger Cali Drift, a three-wheeled electric scooter that carves like a longboard, blurring the lines between the two to create an entirely unique experience.

A powerful 250-watt electric motor drives the rear wheel, and the two front wheels, stem and handlebar pivot on a carriage system allowing the rider the maneuverability to cut and carve in ways previously impossible on traditional two-wheeled scooters. The Cali Drift is capable of speeds up to 15.5 mph and inclines up to 8 degrees with a range of up to 9.3 miles on a single charge.

The stem is easily adjustable to fit riders of a wide range of heights, and the U-shaped handlebars provide a multitude of grip options for maximum comfort and control regardless of riding style. The stem of the Cali Drift also folds and locks in place for easy storage and transport.

"Electric scooters and skateboards blur the line between transportation and recreation more than ever," says Chief Marketing Officer Jason Wakefield. "The Cali Drift epitomizes that and combines the two for a unique yet familiar experience that's an absolute blast no matter how old you are."

Power is applied via an intuitive thumb lever, and stopping duties are taken care of by both hand lever-activated electronic and manual heel brakes. The spacious deck is covered with griptape for sure footing, and features vibrant colors inspired by the coast.


The Cali Drift retails for $480 and is available now at for an introductory price of $399.99.
