Mten Mini – Begode Releases New $500 EUC Perfect For Kids

by Nathan Schaumann

The MTen Mini is a new Begode Wheel specifically marketed for kids and younger riders. It is the lightest EUC ever, at just over 27 lbs, and it is also the least expensive EUC at under $500! Definitely a great choice if you are looking for an EUC for your kids. The MTen Mini only supports riders of up to 150 lbs, and has a very small battery (98Wh or 180Wh), so definitely not a good option for commuting or longer rides. Keep reading for a list of things we liked and didn’t like about the Mten Mini.

Things We Like

Design: The Mten Mini features a sleek design, much more aggressive than the Mten3.

Tire: The Mten Mini has a fat tire, which makes for a much smoother, pleasant ride.

Durability: The way the Mini is designed, there are no exposed pieces that could break. The light is recessed into the frame, and has plenty of padding to protect it.

Kill Switch: The kill switch works really well, and only requires one button-press to engage. The Mten3 requires you to hold down the button while lifting the wheel, otherwise it will spin uncontrollably until you put it back down.

Things We Don’t Like

Low Speed, Low Range: Needless to say, this is not the wheel to get if you are interested in high speed or long range. This wheel tops out at 10mph, and gets less than 10 miles of range.

Charge Port: The padding in the front makes it very difficult to access the charge port. Unless you have long nails, it’s going to be nearly impossible to get the charge port cover off.

Pad Placement: The wheel is shaped so that your shins dig into the upper part of the pads. This will take some getting used to, and makes it especially difficult to get on and off the wheel. Also, the pads are unadjustable.

App Issues: Getting this wheel to connect to Darkness Bot was a pain, and we have heard many people who haven’t been able to connect at all.

The Freshly Charged Take

This is a great addition to Begode’s lineup, and to the EUC world in general. EUCs are generally pretty dangerous compared to the other PEV types, so it looks like this wheel is aiming to make it as safe as possible for younger riders. It’s hard to get badly injured on a wheel that only tops out at 12 mph. When I wanted my younger brother (aged 14) to get into EUCs I got him an MTen3, but if the Mini had been available back then, I would have opted for that instead.

Also, this wheel could be great for any EUC-enthusiast looking for a super-portable wheel. This wheel would even fit inside a backpack!

MTen Mini – Size Comparison

As you can see in the first picture, Begode makes wheels with a wide range of sizes, from the mammoth Monster Pro and Master Pro to the tiny MTen4 and A2. This is an old photo of the Begode lineup, so it doesn’t include the MTen Mini, but as you can see in the next photo, the MTen Mini is even smaller than the MTen4 or the A2.
