The Ohm electric scooter is built from a precision cast magnesium aluminum deck to make it strong and lightweight. This precision casting process is more expensive than other methods, but it allows for the deck to be strong in important areas and lightweight in others. This is far superior than many other scooters that are built from aluminum extrusions that allow much less design flexibility.
The steering tube on the Ohm electric scooter is made from hydroformed aluminum . The reasoning behind this is similar to the reasoning behind the precision cast base. The hydroforming process allows minimize the weight of the steering tube while maximizing its strength.
Almost all of the plastic parts are made from glass reinforced polymer. This glass reinforced polymer is a more expensive plastic than the ABS plastic used on many other lower quality electric scooters.
