The mission when developing the B12 was to create a platform for safe, fun urban mobility inspiring people to ride the urban jungle with confidence and control. We believe the goal has been achieved.
In order to take the humble scooter to the next level, 8TEV chose first to go back to basics, starting with a timeless clean design, and when combined with their proven automotive knowledge, this created the base for the B12’s outstanding performance.
Featuring an intuitive, stable steering geometry, robust yet resilient frame, integrating, cutting edge battery and drive train technology to ensure a new standard of durability, and the ultimate ride every time. If you are looking for the next generation of scooter technology, look no further.

From every order placed with us, we donate the cost of planting a new tree to the Size of Wales Tree Planting Project.
Since launching in 2010 Size of Wales has supported 2.4 million hectares of tropical forest and supported over 43,000 people from forest communities. Just in Wales, they have inspired over 32,000 children and young people on rainforest and climate change issues and reached millions of people in Wales and across the world with their message through press, radio, television and social media work as well as quarterly fundraising campaigns.
See below for further information on this fantastic project
Deforestation and degredation of the world’s forests causes more CO2 emissions than all the world’s transport combined (meaning planes, trains, cars, vans and ships!). Size of Wales works with forest projects in Africa and South America to help conserve existing tropical forests and support sustainable management of forests. All their projects work directly with forest communities in country. The projects in South America currently equal over 2 million hectares, and they are now aiming to protect another 2 million hectares in Africa. Find out more about the projects they work with on the project map on our homepage.
They also work with a flagship tree planting project which aims to plant 10 Million Trees and increases forest cover in Uganda. This project also plants a tree for every child born or adopted in Wales, as part of the Welsh Government’s innovative Plant! scheme. For more information on the Plant! scheme see here.
After a long history of deforestation in Wales, Wales is now gradually increasing its forest cover and protecting the existing woodland. However, from both a climate change and poverty reduction perspective, it is the destruction of forests in the tropics which truly threatens the world’s climate, as well as the basic needs of food, shelter and livelihoods for people living there.
Initially set up by the Commissioner for Sustainable Futures, Peter Davies and Chair of the Waterloo Foundation, Heather Stevens, as part of Wales’ response to the dual challenges of climate change and international poverty reduction, Size of Wales is now an independent charity.
Forests are key to mitigating against the impacts of climate change by absorbing the carbon dioxide we emit. Despite this, up to 12 million hectares of tropical forest is destroyed each year! As much as 25% of global carbon emissions is caused by the destruction of the tropical forest, this is greater than the carbon emitted by all the worlds transport combined.
Each of their projects works closely with the indigenous communities who live in and depend upon the forests for their livelihoods. Indigenous peoples often have a sacred connection to these forests and have lived sustainably with these forests for centuries making them the best conservationists of all! The projects work to empower these communities in a way that enables them to protect these precious forests.

A quick note on e-scooter boxes
Please don't be alarmed if it looks like your box has been opened and resealed. This is for several reasons. Firstly, we sell predominantly European scooter brands, so often the scooters come with an EU plug. We have to open the boxes to add a UK plug. We don't remove the EU plug so you are given suitable plugs for both the UK and EU. This means if you're travelling to Europe in the summer and are planning to take your e-scooter with you, you'll have a suitable charger.
Our products have usually been shipped from Asia or Europe. Before they are delivered to you, they sometimes have to be checked by UK customs and our own quality control team. This means that the box will have been opened so please keep this in mind.
Finally, similarly to car batteries, if e-scooters sit unused and uncharged for too long, this can damage the long term battery health. If an e-scooter has been in our possession for several months, we have to open the box to charge the scooter. This ensures you are getting a scooter that's in perfect condition that will last you for many years to come!
The boxes sometimes have a little bit of wear and tear, but that doesn't damage the goods inside which are very well protected with additional packaging inside the box. Some of our products have a box within the outer box for additional protection.
