I am having so much fun with my first Glide that I bought a second one so I can adventure with my friends! As an outdoor enthusiast with an arthritic knee, the Glide has given me the mobility I need to get out on the roads and trails. Today I commuted to work which took me along the walking and bike trails of the beautiful American River...8 miles of nature in 25 minutes and I didn't need to put on cycling shoes and shorts!...wearing my business attire.
Such a great way to get around in urban settings and not worry about finding parking...ride quickly like a fast bike and park at the front door with little exertion and no sweat! It is the Cat's MEOW and fun to see the heads turn of bystanders and drivers. I got the deluxe version so it is lit up at night like a beacon of Light! FUN, simple, easy, and feels like skiing or snowboarding! Practical for getting around! Energized for work today and I have another 20 miles of battery charge left on my Glide Ride!Phillip D.

Riding a glide is like being on a magic carpet ride! You're swept away with power at your fingertips! I love the sense of freedom you get while riding... Its unexplainable! If you like to have a grin on your face, you just have to get on a Glide. My wife and I have enjoyed our glides for over 6 years now. They are still going strong!
They have been all over the place including Burning Man and always go with us on our RV adventures. The quality of the build is more than you would expect. The hydraulic disc brakes are awesome! It's what you might expect to see in some of the top mountain bike brands. I am looking forward to seeing the future models Glide will produce. I heard a rumor of a 2 wheel drive off-road model coming soon. Cool!Rick W.

I may live in a 55+ community, but I am not too old to have a blast of a good time! No golf cart for me! I had one and it sucked up a lot of $ with PG&E, registration and insurance. I have had motorcycles and Vespa scooters and this is by far the better choice... so user-friendly and FUN! Easy to move around in the garage, even while two autos share the space. Rocklin has one wicked hill and I live at the top... Glide manages just fine.Rose W.
Where to even start! We got our first glide a couple years ago, and loved it so much we had to get another before Burning Man this last year! We take them all over the place! From running the dog every day to festivals and other events! It's so nice to cruise over to our daughter's school without having to deal with the traffic. And they're an outright godsend on the playa, especially with having our daughter out there this year. She even loves to ride it! And the constant looks of awe as you ride by, no matter where you are are always fun. And on top of a great product, the customer service is amazing! Always helpful and willing to go the extra mile for you. That's harder and harder to find these days.
My only complaint is that not every one of my friends has one yet, and so we constantly have to wait on them!
This picture is me with my sweet new blue Glide. It was my Christmas gift from my wife a year ago. The orange glide is my wife's. She has had hers for over 7 years. She rides it a lot and it is going strong, still with the original battery. We trailer them all over the country on camping trips. It is amazing how fast you can move through traffic with these glides. I live in Rancho and We take the glides shopping, out to dinner, and have the most fun riding with several friends on special rides each year.

I’ve been riding Glides for years and having a blast! I also own the very first Glide ever made and it is still running strong after being through almost every harsh condition imaginable! I have also been modifying my units over the years as they are a very good platform to customize to your own vibe! And also a great utility vehicle for towing trailers and hauling more than one person, etc. Here is an article containing my last mod Glide. EX-1... there will be an Ex-2 coming Soon!

My Glide is amazing. I take it everywhere. I originally purchased it for Burning Man. Yes it's been twice!!! )'( I've ridden it in San Francisco, Sacramento, Fresno, & San Diego. It traveled with me on the back of my RV From Sacramento,Ca to New Orleans,La. I 've abused it in every way possible including giving piggyback rides and popping willies. Still going strong!Kathleen R.
