Spin, the e-scooter startup acquired by Ford, is rolling out its redesigned electric scooters and bringing them to more cities across the US. The new scooters have a larger frame with a wider and longer platform. They come with bigger, tubeless tires for better shock absorption, more intuitive bike-handle braking, a boosted rear drive for improved acceleration and security screws meant to cut down on tampering and vandalism. And with an extended battery life, they should travel up to 37.5 miles on a full charge.

The revamped e-scooters have already been tested as part of a pilot program in Baltimore, and beginning next month, the scooters will arrive in Portland, Ore.; Los Angeles; Berkeley, Calif.; Denver; Washington, DC; Kansas City, Mo.; Memphis, Tenn. and Minneapolis. They'll arrive with new branding, and Spin says we can expect to see them in more US cities in the not-too-distant future. Of course, they'll have plenty of competition, from the likes of Lime, Lyft and Jump.
