Our Story

After riding scooters for a couple years, we always imagined the perfect mix of components and attributes but could never find it in a single scooter. Even when we got close, the service provided by the company selling it left a lot to be desired.

Vig is our answer to “what makes the perfect scooter?”. It’s all the little things that together add up to a comfortable, safe and super fun ride.

Vig is our response to companies who have let us down because they don’t seem to care about customers after the sale. We believe keeping you going year after year is part of a superior riding experience.

Vig scooters are sold, serviced and supported by micromobility enthusiasts who value performance as much as good old-fashioned customer service.

We’re not a manufacturer, but more than just a run-of-the-mill retailer or distributor. We scour the world for e-scooter products we feel embody our ethos of fantastic ride quality and that are not well represented in North America but should be—in other words we look for “diamonds in the rough”. We then rebrand the product, either by upgrading components or developing our own documentation and service/support processes (usually all of these) so we can offer products that are both unique in the marketplace and best-in-class.

We only sell what we ride, what we have personally torn apart and put back together, what we’ve witnessed being built at the factory. We’re exceptionally picky about the manufacturers we partner with and have formed close relationships with them.

We’re in this to help save the planet, offer an affordable alternative to a car, and introduce the world to what we’ve learned: that the right scooter is equal parts exhilaration, durability and awesome customer service.

What is Vig?

Vig is exhilaration and exuberance.

Vig is travelling around the city and on the trails.

Vig is equal parts form and function.

Vig is premium electric scooters that are designed for a superior riding experience.

What does "Vig" mean?

Vig means “agile” in Swedish.

Announcing the Improved Vig Warranty

February 13, 2023
When we first developed the Vig warranty, we wanted to improve on the lacklustre warranty offered by the manufacturer.

Yrsa is Here and it’s Ready to Get Wet

November 14, 2022
One of the prime tenets of riding electric scooters is "don't ride in the rain". Water and electricity don't mix. Most scooters have an IP54 environmental rating against water ingress, which translates to "don't get it wet". Our advice to our customers has always been "If you happen to get caught in the rain you'll…

What maintenance is required to be done to my electric scooter?

November 8, 2022
Other than taking proper care of the battery and keeping adequate pressure in the tires (unless your scooter has solid tires), there's little maintenance required. This doesn't mean there's NO maintenance required however. What you need to do is not difficult but if you're in no way mechanically inclined, we would suggest taking your electric…

September 20, 2022
Our plans for Vig include eventually designing our own electric scooters from the ground up and contracting a manufacturer to build based on our own designs.

The Vig Service Technician Network

September 19, 2022
Inevitably there will come a time when your scooter requires maintenance and servicing. Some Vig owners will opt to perform this work themselves, but many would rather not. While some e-bikes stores are an option, and it's possible to ship your scooter to us at Vig for servicing, many times that's not practical. For this…
