The Brake System

The brake system is smooth, reliable, and easy to use. The anti-lock electronic brake is in the hub motor in the rear part of the e-scooter. To slow down simply twist the left handle on the handlebar.
Certification and Safety
We couldn’t find any information on certification, but the company claims to use a patented scooter design.
Under low-light conditions, the front light and the built-in rear reflector are the main safety features. The e-scooter also comes with a bell to get the attention of other riders or pedestrians.
The Glion Dolly e-scooter performs well on smooth surfaces such as paved roads and walkways. It's clearly made as a city commuter electric scooter.
Riding on rough terrain is more troublesome and should be avoided if possible. While this scooter can be ridden on short grass and bumpy terrain, it's not where it excels. So don't expect peak performance.
An additional cool feature of the Glion Dolly is that it holds its own as a non-electric scooter too. So if you ever find yourself away from home with a dead battery, simply push your way home.
Overall the Glion Dolly is a high-performing electric scooter. But it's not the best we've seen. For city commuters who need something light and portable, it's worth considering.
