Miami Based Start-Up FluidFreeRide to Partner with Korean Engineering Gurus Mercane to Shape the Future of Personal Mobility in the US

MIAMI, March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- FluidFreeRide LLC ( recently announced the successful closing of a partnership deal with Korea-based Mercane Co. Ltd. for exclusive US-distributorship of the most popular product in the FluidFreeRide catalog: the Mercane WideWheel. This new deal with Mercane places FluidFreeRide on the road to becoming the leading independent electric-scooter retailer in the US.

"We are so excited and happy about this deal with Mercane. They are a group of passionate engineers who have innovated a variety of personal electric vehicles, some of which are now best sellers in Asia. We all know electro-mobility is the future. And they care just as much about scooter quality and riding satisfaction as we do. The Mercane WideWheel is an exciting, game-changing ride," said Julian Fernau, founder of FluidFreeRide.

The WideWheel

The Mercane Widewheel electric scooter has been designed for ultimate riding comfort. The ultra-wide tires, with front and rear suspension combine to deliver a nearly bump-free gliding experience. Utilizing a high-efficiency lithium-ion battery and two powerful motors, the scooter guarantees strong acceleration, top speeds of 25mph and 20+ miles range on a single charge. Its hill-climbing torque has made it the electric scooter of choice on the steep streets of San Francisco.

With a sleek design and overwhelmingly positive online reviews, the WideWheel is certain to remain a customer favorite in ecommerce. FluidFreeRide is also quickly expanding its wholesale network to include local bike and motorsports retailers. The WideWheel provides a valuable opportunity for small to medium-sized retailers to enter the prmium electric-scooter market at minimal risk. Stores can buy in small quantities within the US, without having to worry about a warranty or long-term support.

The Booming Electric-Scooter Market

Recent studies have reported on the exciting boom taking place in the micromobility market, with some estimates predicting the global electric-scooter market at nearly 42 billion by 2030.

The US Department of Transportation reports more than 20% of all daily vehicle trips to be less than one mile and 75% to be less than 10 miles. Electric scooters have a huge potential to cannibalize a majority of these short distance trips due to growing consumer concerns for eco-friendly and cost-efficient transportation. At less than half a cent of electricity cost per mile, riding an electric scooter costs roughly one twentieth of riding a gas fueled car.

Another factor in developing the market is the growing presence of electric-scooter sharing services in urban areas playing a key role in convincing consumers about the merits of this modern style of transportation. But ultimately, FluidFreeRide believes that the freedom and fun offered by an electric scooter is what truly inspires buyers. And the market research agrees. Riding a scooter just makes people feel happy. The feeling of zipping through traffic, free and unimpeded by stopped cars, is a youthful liberation.
