Does the scooter struggle uphill?

Regardless of brand, the driver's weight greatly affects the scooter's ability to climb slopes. You can get over the steepest slopes by helping your scooter with a few kicks.

The Augment scooters, as well as their almost comparable 600-800 € competing scooters, manage 10-15%, i.e. 7-8 degree slopes with 80kg drivers.

Note that it is normal for the scooter's speed to decrease during the ascent. You can facilitate the ascent by accelerating before the hill.
