Dualtron X 2

The self-proclaimed King of Electric Scooters. It features 13 x 4” ultra-large tyres that deliver a smooth, unique ride quality that is unbeatable once you’re used to it. The tread makes this scooter suitable for all types of terrain. However, it’s not for inexperienced users. This is a machine that needs a practised hand to guide it, substantial muscles to lift it and a generous budget to afford it.

Looking for a scooter with tyres that deliver a unique riding experience? There’s only one real contender: the Dualtron X 2. This beast of a performance scooter is the very definition of extreme, renowned for its fearsome reputation and supersized frame.

You won’t get bigger than the X’s enormous 13 x 4 inch pneumatic tyres. At first glance, you’d be forgiven for thinking that these have been borrowed from a motorcycle – the X 2 feels more at home in this category when compared alongside some of the other electric scooters on the market. In fact, the X’s tyres are more similar to those on a car thanks to the fact that they’re so big and can roll over obstacles easily.

They deliver a soft and cushioned ride, absorbing any harsh impacts from the road. However, their sheer size means they might take a while to get used to it. This is because the X’s increased tyre size means you’ll feel like you’re floating more than riding. Initially, it might feel quite clumsy, especially when turning. Scooters with smaller tyres are more easily able to execute sharp manoeuvres, but the extra girth on the X’s wheels makes this a bit more complicated. Needless to say, it’ll take an experienced rider to fully grasp the art of this.

In case you didn’t know, this scooter is fast. It’s the fastest model I’ve ever reviewed. Its ferocious dual motors have an eye-watering peak output of 8300W, making it capable of reaching a stunning 68 mph and giving it an unparalleled acceleration curve. The X’s chunky wheels and ultra-wide deck add some much-needed stability to the X’s wild side. Their increased width provides a balanced base so you’ll feel secure and safe even when riding at top speeds.

The X 2 also comes with an innovative steering damper. This is more commonly found on motorcycles, and it helps to minimize the amount of wobble in the steering and handlebars. Like the big wheels, this is an awesome feature for a scooter that goes as fast as this one does. The steering damper ensures that high-speed riding produces a good kind of adrenaline, rather than a panic-filled dread that you’re going to lose control when you’re flying along at close to 60 mph.

The X 2’s supersized tyres are perfect for tackling any type of terrain. They don’t feature the more classic knobby tread that you’ll find on off-road tyres like the Dualtron Ultra, but they have more than enough traction to deal with loose and solid surfaces alike.

Their tubeless design also lends itself to venturing off the beaten path. Pneumatic tyres are at risk of suffering flats, however, the majority of punctures occur within the inner tube. By removing this and going tubeless, the X’s wheels are more flat-resistant and lower maintenance.

The X 2 also features the best suspension system I’ve ever come across. Comprising dual coil-over hydraulics, the X can adjust to any kind of riding scenario. The combination of spring and hydraulic shock absorbers makes the suspension both stiff and soft at the same time, increasing the X’s versatility. This is a major bonus for an experienced rider who’s more likely to want to branch out into a variety of different riding styles, rather than just sticking to one.

The Dualtron X 2 has a lot to offer and seasoned scooter vets will be happy to hear that it’s also got the miles to match. With a staggering 93-mile range, you’ll have more than enough juice in the tank to put the X through its paces. Like all of the components that make up this scooter, the massive 72V 42Ah battery is made with high-quality LG cells.

With a scooter this wild, strong brakes are key. Luckily, Dualtron has pulled out all the stops, opting for dual hydraulic disc brakes, complete with optional ABS (anti-lock braking system). These are some of the best brakes available because of their precise and controlled stopping power.

This scooter also comes with an impressive array of lights for nighttime riding, including an ultra-bright front headlight, swag lights, rear lights, and turn signals. These can be operated from the handlebars, where you’ll also find the Dualtron-favored EYE display controller and horn.

It’s pretty clear that the X 2 is the most outrageous scooter on the market and it does everything at an extreme. For the most part, this is a good thing, however, there are a few exceptions. For instance, the X 2 is heavy. It weighs a back-breaking 66 kg. Considering the size of its wheels, battery, and dual motors this isn’t too surprising, but it does mean it’s not practical to lift.

Another issue is the price tag. At £5,250, the Dualtron X 2 is way outside of most people’s budgets. It’s made for true extreme-scooter enthusiasts and is priced accordingly. The ultra-large tyres help to deliver a smooth, unique ride quality that is unbeatable once you’re used to it, and their tread makes this scooter suitable for all types of terrain. However, it’s not for inexperienced users. This is a machine that needs a practised hand to guide it, substantial muscles to lift it and a generous budget to afford it.

There’s no doubt that this is an outstanding scooter, and it performs in every way that matters.

Wolf Warrior

Want a scooter with enormous wheels and enough power to somewhat rival the Dualtron X 2, but for £2,651 less? Look no further – the Wolf Warrior is the one for you. This scooter is every inch as badass as it sounds with a thrilling top speed of 50 mph, an extended range of 70 miles, and beefy tyres for effortless ride quality.

Wolf Warrior. Sounds pretty cool, right?

This electric scooter is an absolute beast and not only because it’s got the specs to rival the outrageous Dualtron X 2. It’s a fully adaptable lean, mean, riding machine. Don’t believe me? Take a look at the video below.

Wolf Warrior Review: Is It Still a Worthwhile Investment?

With Kaabo bringing out a range of different Wolf models – including the Wolf Warrior X, X Pro, King, and King GT – we take a deep dive into the Wolf Warrior’s performance to let you know if its still a worthwhile investment.

With wheels that measure 11 x 3.5 inches, the Wolf Warrior is second only to the Dualtron X 2 when it comes to big tyres. You can guarantee a comfortable ride with wheels this tall and this wide because they’ve got enough substance to roll over and absorb the impact of even the biggest surface imperfections.

The Wolf Warrior’s tyres are pneumatic, which are known for their ability to mould to the road surface more easily. This means your ride will be more cushioned and plush than on scooters with solid tyres. Plus, pneumatics provide better traction and performance in wet weather conditions.

They have one main downside, though: they’re more vulnerable to flats. However, the Wolf Warrior sidesteps this problem neatly by incorporating a tubeless design. This is the part of an air-filled tyre that normally punctures, so without it, you’re left with a thicker, more durable flat-resistant tyre.

When it comes to tread depth and pattern, the choice lies completely in your hands. This is because the Wolf Warrior is available to order with either knobby off-road or slick road tyres fitted. Naturally, this will depend on what you’re planning to use the scooter for but if you opt for the road option, you can still expect pretty good performance on looser surfaces like dirt or sand. However, the mud-tyre configuration is uniquely designed to keep you stable in off-road conditions so is the best option if the idea of getting away from civilization for a while makes your heart flutter.

I’ve already mentioned how beastly this scooter is and its fearsome reputation extends further than the enormous tyres. Its powerful front and rear-wheel drive deliver a thrilling top speed of 50 mph whilst the huge LG battery can power the rotation of the wheels for 70 miles on a single charge.

Thanks to the two powerful motors and the extra-large wheels, the Wolf Warrior has a heart-stoppingly fast acceleration curve and can climb 30-degree inclines without breaking a sweat. To give you an idea of exactly how steep that is, take your phone, stand it up on a table and then angle it down just past halfway towards the table. Even some cars would struggle to scale an incline that steep!

I doubt you’ll ever need to climb a 30-degree incline but it is reassuring knowing that you can take on pretty much any hill thrown at you.

In addition to the raw power, the scooter has a motorcycle-grade hydraulic suspension system that sits above the front wheel alongside springs above the back that work in conjunction to provide a comfortable ride over all kinds of terrain. This is great news for your joints, which will feel the benefit of being protected from all of those harsh impacts.

Like everything else about the Wolf Warrior, its braking system is also top-of-the-range. Featuring dual hydraulics, you’ll benefit from having a brake located on each wheel and this will help to slow you down faster, even when you’re travelling at top speeds. Hydraulic brakes are, in my opinion, the most efficient braking option, so you can expect responsive control at all times. There is also the option to enable the ABS (anti-lock braking system) system to ensure those big wheels can be safely slowed down without locking up and skidding when the brakes are applied.

Other safety features include the impressive lighting setup the Wolf Warrior has to offer. It features big, bright LEDs that will illuminate the path in front of you and a massive red rear light. It also comes with side deck lights and additional ground effects. With all of these turned on, you’ll be lit like a bonfire and hard for other road users to miss.

Weighing 45.8 kg, the Wolf Warrior certainly isn’t a portable scooter. However, the added bulk does get you two enormous motorcycle-like tyres as well as powerful dual motors and a beefy but extra-durable frame. Like the Dualtron X, this is a scooter made to perform, so you probably won’t want to use it for casual errands or commuting, where portability is a must.

Another great thing about this scooter is that most of its innards are designed by Mini Motors USA, the company responsible for the Dualtron range. As a result, you’re getting the same power as you’d see on these mega-scooters, but at a fraction of the price. Costing £2,599, the Wolf Warrior is £2,651 cheaper than the Dualtron X, despite being almost as powerful.

If you are searching for an electric scooter that looks badass, has big wheels and raw power without the eye-watering price tag seen on similar scooters then the Wolf Warrior is the best choice for you.

Dualtron Thunder

The Dualtron Thunder is one of the best performance scooters on the market and it has the wheels to match. Measuring 11 x 4 inches, they deliver a smooth and luxurious ride, with excellent shock absorption. They make this scooter ideal for on-road usage as well as light off-roading and keep you balanced when riding at top speeds of 50 mph.

The X isn’t the only Dualtron scooter on this list with tyres big enough to raise eyebrows – large wheels are a significant part of the Dualtron Thunder’s makeup, too. Plus, when it comes to this scooter, you can still channel your inner beast, but for around £2,250 less than the X 2.

Measuring 11 x 4 inches, the Thunder’s tyres are just marginally bigger than those found on the Wolf Warrior but are just as wide as those on the Dualtron X 2. This means you’ll experience the same stability and balance as you would on its more expensive counterpart. This is ideal for the speed fiends amongst you because not only do the bigger tyres allow you to pick up the pace, but their increased ground contact means you’ll never feel unsteady when racing along at the Thunder’s top speed of 50 mph.

Like the two previous scooters, the Thunder’s tyres are pneumatic so you can expect them to deliver excellent shock absorption. This is mostly down to their size which means they can roll effortlessly over potholes and bumps, but also because they’re incredibly thick and very durable as far as tyres go. They’re also tubeless, which means they have better resistance to flats than tyres with inner tubes do.

The tread on the Thunder is pretty smooth, which makes them ideal for on-road usage. Smoother tyres have more traction when ridden on solid paths, whereas those with a knobby texture tend to be better at finding grip on loose surfaces like sand or mud. However, that’s not to say the Thunder isn’t suitable for light off-roading. In fact, given its power, I’d say it would be a shame not to let this scooter stretch its legs off the beaten track. However, I’d stick to trails that are a bit firmer underfoot.

The shock absorption provided by the tyres on this scooter is supported by the Mini-motor’s favoured adjustable rubber suspension system. This means you can select different cartridges, ranging from soft to stiff, to tweak the Thunder’s suspension levels depending on your environment.

Like most scooters in the Dualtron range, the Thunder is all about power. Its dual 2700W motors put out amazing torque and give it the ability to climb 47% inclines, whilst the quality LG battery promises a range of 75 miles and a speedy recharge of 5.3 hours when you purchase the fast charger (20 hours without). When ridden at full power, the mileage you experience is likely to reduce slightly, but not significantly enough to hamper your enjoyment of the ride.

A scooter that promises this level of performance needs to be able to withstand the pressures of riding in full power mode. Well, Dualtron has gone all out here — the Thunder is built to last. The quality seen in the tyres extends to the rest of the scooter too. Like the X, it still has a chunky frame, but is a bit sleeker and urbanized than its tank-like sibling without losing any of the durability. It also comes with a similarly wide deck that helps to keep you balanced and supports riders up to 120 kg.

It’s equipped with dual hydraulic disc brakes that deliver a sharp and precise braking experience. A brake on each wheel helps to slow you down more quickly and gives you complete control of your ride at all times.

Further safety features include front and rear LED button lights as well as swag stem lighting and underdeck lights.

You’ll be pleased to hear that although the Thunder is still one of the most powerful and premium scooters you can get, it’s a bit lighter than both the Wolf Warrior and the Dualtron X 2. Weighing in at 43.1 kg, it’s still not going to be an easy lift for anyone though. It folds down nicely and also has folding handlebars, but you’re going to need a hand if you want to carry it anywhere.

At £2,999, this scooter is cheaper than the X 2 but still doesn’t beat the Wolf Warrior for price. Considering that these two are pretty on par when it comes to performance, deciding between them comes down to preference. Both are premium scooters, but if you want to get picky, the tyres on the Thunder are the wider out of the two. However, with the Wolf Warrior, you have the choice between choosing on or off-road tyres, making it slightly more versatile. If you’ve got the extra budget to spare and like the idea of having a scooter with the inimitable Dualtron name attached to it, the Thunder is a no-brainer.

Dualtron Ultra

Fast, long-range, and off-road ready, the Dualtron Ultra is a thrill seeker’s dream. It comes with large 11 x 3.5 inch knobby tyres that are perfect for forest trails and mountainous paths whilst also delivering the standard Dualtron wicked-fast speed. It’s also lighter than other performance scooters on the list.

If you’re more of an off-road explorer than an urban traveller, don’t panic. There are plenty of scooters out there with large tyres specifically suited to trails and mountain paths. Out of these, the Dualtron Ultra is one of the very best.

With its powerful dual 2700W motors, a top speed of 50 mph, and the ability to climb hills up to 25-degrees, the Ultra is similar to the Thunder, but with one crucial difference: its tyres feature a knobby design that’s perfect for off-road excursions. This kind of tread is more heavily textured than that of road tyres, which means it has better traction on looser surfaces like those of dirt tracks or mountain trails. If you’re planning to use your scooter for both on and off-roading, you can also purchase road tyres at an additional cost to up the versatility of the Ultra.

Like others in the Dualtron range, the Ultra’s tyres are pneumatic and tubeless, meaning they perform better in wet weather conditions and are also more flat-resistant. They also provide a good level of shock absorption, which is ideal for soaking up harsh hits and works well with the swing-arm suspension to protect your joints and deliver a smooth ride quality.

Measuring 11 x 3.5 inches, these wheels fit in with the chunky, oversized style that Dualtron is known for, although in terms of width, they’re only slightly thinner than those on the Thunder and the X. This doesn’t reduce the contact patch by much, and in fact, you might find the thinner profile allows you to make slightly more nimble turning movements.

The overall build of the scooter has been designed specifically to withstand the pressures of off-roading in the same way the tyres have. The already chunky 5 mm stem has been further enhanced with the addition of a 3.5 mm sleeve to reduce any strain as a result of jumps or sharp braking and the aviation-grade aluminium alloy frame is specifically tailored to absorb high-speed riding conditions. Additionally, specialized motor sinks have been internally fitted to help keep performance at an optimal level and stop the motors from overheating. The Ultra has been built to last.

Similar to other Dualtron models, the Ultra has been equipped with fully hydraulic dual disc brakes. Think smooth but responsive braking with minimal effort on your part and you’ve got a feel for what to expect from this setup. Each tyre benefits from its own brake, helping to bring you to a stop even faster. This is extremely important in an off-road setting, where you’ll be relying on your brakes a lot to keep your ride consistent and safe.

If you want to put your off-road tyres to the test, the Ultra has an extended range of 75 miles to help you out. It’s worth bearing in mind that your actual mileage will depend on a whole host of riding conditions such as rider weight and terrain type, but even so, the Ultra’s LG battery will keep you going for at least 50 miles.

One advantage the Ultra does have over the previous scooters in this list is that it’s significantly lighter, weighing 36.7 kg. Don’t get me wrong, this is still incredibly heavy and difficult for one person to manage on their own, but it’s much kinder on the back than other high-performance models. And let’s be honest, if you choose to buy a scooter like the Ultra, it’s highly unlikely you’ll be planning to take it on public transport with you.

At £2,500, it’s an expensive investment but is a bit cheaper than the Thunder. The price might be too much for casual riders, but if you’re someone who has a passion for off-roading and respect for the Dualtron brand, this shouldn’t put you off.

Turboant X7 Pro

The Turboant X7 Pro is the best scooter under £500 with chunky pneumatic tyres. Measuring 10 x 2 inches, they promise an impressively comfortable ride and are best suited for urban exploration. Even better, this scooter comes with a ton of premium features such as an extended range and triple braking mechanism, making it awesome value for money.

We have converted the price to GBP for your convenience. on the retailer website are in U.S. Dollars but rest assured, we only recommend scooters that can be shipped to the UK.

If you love the sound of the scooters I’ve mentioned so far, but you don’t love the sound of their pretty hefty price tags, that’s okay. There are still some awesome options out there, such as the Turboant X7 Pro, which is my favourite budget scooter.

Turboant X7 Pro Unboxing Review

A complete unboxing and review of the Turboant X7 Pro. See what the best electric scooter under £500 has to offer. From close-ups of the frame to talking through the impressive stats, this video will show you exactly what you can expect from the Turboant X7 Pro.

The wheels on the X7 Pro come in at 10 inches, which is slightly smaller than the likes of the Wolf Warrior or Dualtron models, however, they’ll feel a lot bigger than they are. This is because, unlike other scooters, the Turboant’s battery is stored in its stem. This means the deck is ultra-thin (like a skateboard) and allows the tyres to take centre stage. It’s a perfect set up if you’re a rider with a penchant for curb jumps.

The Pro’s tyres also have a thinner profile, measuring 2 inches in width. This is still wide enough to keep you properly balanced, even when riding in the fastest speed setting. The biggest advantage of having slightly thinner tyres is that it makes the scooter more agile. You’ll be able to manoeuvre more easily and execute faster turns than you would on a scooter where the contact patch is much wider. This will come in handy if you’re looking to use your scooter for commuting on busy inner-city roads.

The X7 Pro’s tyres are pneumatic, so you can rely on better traction in wet weather, especially on flat terrain like tarmac or grass which perfectly suit the Pro’s slick tread pattern. Another bonus of air-filled tyres is that they provide pretty solid shock absorption, cushioning impacts, and allowing the scooter to roll casually over obstacles. In the X7 Pro’s case, this is vital because it doesn’t have any suspension so the ride comfort comes primarily from the tyres.

At £434, the X7 Pro is a steal. Understandably, it doesn’t boast the same specs as the extreme performance scooters, but what it does offer is excellent value for money. Its 350W motor allows you to reach a top speed of 20 mph, even when climbing hills with a 15% incline grade. Even better, it offers a shockingly good range of 30 miles. The fact that the battery is detachable gives you a couple of different charging options for maximum versatility. It also means you can extend your mileage even further with the purchase of a second pack to swap in when the first one runs out of juice. Handy, right?

Considering the reasonable price tag, it’s downright impressive that the X7 Pro comes with a triple braking system. This includes an electronic motor brake as well as a disc brake and a foot brake. This means you can apply pressure in all the right places whenever you want to slow down. Together, the three can bring you to a stop in as little as 5 meters.

Like all good scooters, the X7 Pro comes with an LED headlight and taillight to keep you visible, however, I’d recommend additional lighting for regular nighttime excursions. It also features a Smart LED screen on the handlebars so you can swap between the three different riding modes and monitor your basic stats.

At 15 kg, the X7 Pro is a refreshingly light option compared to some of the heftier scooters on this list. Despite its lighter size, it’s still incredibly durable and has a thick sturdy stem that’s specifically designed to withstand daily wear and tear. This extends to the overall exterior thanks to the Pro’s IPX4 water-resistant rating, which means it’s protected from water splashes and light rain.

If you’re looking for big, tall tyres and you don’t want to spend over £500, the Turboant X7 Pro is a great choice. Its wheels make it an ideal option for urban commuting or light, grassy off-road excursions and their height gives you great clearance for jumps and hops. Most importantly, they provide great shock absorption to deliver a smooth and comfortable ride on a scooter with no suspension. This, combined with the triple braking system, incredibly long-range, and extra sturdy build, make this scooter an absolute steal.

Emove Cruiser

A very well-rounded scooter that ticks all of the boxes in style. The Emove Cruiser might seem a bit expensive, but its premium features are worth it. Featuring 10 x 3 inch pneumatic tyres, you can expect a truly comfortable ride that even the most stubborn potholes will have a hard time disrupting.

If you’re not on a strict budget and you’re looking for a scooter with a luxurious edge, then the Emove Cruiser should be high on your list of big-wheeled contenders.

EMOVE Cruiser Unboxing Mini-Review | Feast Your Eyes on the Best Scooter Under £1,250

Reliable, long-range, and incredibly well-rounded, the EMOVE Cruiser ticks all the right boxes and has everything a stylish and savvy rider needs. Feast your eyes on a sequence of clips showcasing the EMOVE Cruiser’s illustrious design and features.

When it comes to riding comfort, the Emove Cruiser knows how to deliver. Featuring 10 x 3 inch tyres that are slightly wider than you’ll find on the Turboant X7 Pro, you can guarantee a balanced ride even when riding at the Cruiser’s top speed of 25 mph. The increased surface contact works together with the large standing deck so that you’ll always feel secure.

The Cruiser’s tyres are pneumatic so you can expect excellent shock absorption against surface imperfections. Their increased size also means that you’ll be able to breeze over large potholes without being shaken all over the place. The tyres work alongside the dual air shock suspension system to protect your joints and deliver smooth, pleasurable sailing over most terrain.

In terms of tread, these guys aren’t knobby, so their slicker exterior is better matched to solid surfaces like tarmac and pavements, however, they’ll still provide better traction than solid tyres, even in wet weather. Overall, the Cruiser has been designed to perform well in adverse weather conditions and has an IPX6 waterproof rating, which is one of the best you can get. What this means is that the scooter can withstand high-pressure waterjets, so your scooter won’t suffer any damage even if you’re caught in a torrent of rain.

Similar to the more expensive performance scooters, the Cruiser’s tyres are tubeless. As I’ve mentioned, this means that they’re thicker and more durable as well as being more flat-resistant. They’re also shielded by some pretty chunky fenders, which will protect them even further. This is particularly useful if you’re a keen city rider – any number of sharp items could be waiting on the roads to cause mischief.

The Cruiser is pricier than the Turboant X7 Pro, costing £1,249, however, when you consider the features on offer, this isn’t surprising. For one thing, its battery is produced by LG, one of the biggest tech giants. At 62 miles, it offers over double the range without the need for an extra battery back. In fact, the Cruiser’s battery size is 3x bigger than those found on competitors in the same price class. You’ll have plenty of juice to try out the sturdiness of the Cruiser’s tyres and put its ride comfort to the test.

It also comes with front and rear hybrid hydraulic brakes. These work together to direct braking power to both of the wheels so you can come to a stop as quickly as possible. Hydraulic brakes are my preferred braking option because of their increased efficiency and responsiveness.

Like most good electric scooters, the Cruiser is fitted with a front headlight, taillight, and red deck lights too. This is one of the best lighting arrays I’ve seen on an electric scooter at this price, and they’re sufficient to light the path in front of you as well as making you visible to other riders. As a bonus, the Cruiser also features turn signals which are an awesome safety feature. These can be operated from the handlebar where you’ll also find the riding display and horn.

At 23.6 kg, the Cruiser is quite heavy, but it is compact once collapsed. This is due to the folding handlebars which give it a thinner profile. Because of this, you won’t have any issues storing it. The extra weight is down to the sturdy build of the scooter which makes it harder to lift, although it does mean it’s super durable and easily able to support riders up to 160 kg.

The Emove Cruiser is a true luxury scooter, and it’ll help you cut through traffic in style, especially with its comfortable ride quality and nimble tyres. Its premium features do result in a bigger price tag than you might find on other scooters like the Turboant X7 Pro, but for the added luxurious edge, the money you pay is worth what you get in return.

Apollo Pro 52V

The Apollo Pro 52V is all about bringing power to your commute. Its dual motors work with the plush pneumatic 10 x 2.5 inch tyres to deliver strong traction and torque, allowing you to reach a top speed of 38 mph. The ride comfort is excellent too thanks to the cushioning of the wheels; you’ll feel like you’re riding a premium machine.

The Apollo Pro 52V is another exceptional premium quality scooter that features beefy wheels for optimum riding comfort. If your budget sits at somewhere around the £1,700 mark, the Pro 52V has a lot to offer.

Measuring 10 x 2.5 inch the Pro 52V’s tyres are slightly thinner than those on the Emove Cruiser making this an easy scooter to manoeuvre, whether you’re riding on or off-road. Their tread is pretty thick, meaning they have decent traction on solid surfaces, as well as there being enough texture for this scooter to be able to handle some light forest trails. If you’re a more serious off-roader or want to try it out in the future, you can purchase suitable off-road tyres at an extra cost to give the Pro 52V more versatility.

The tyres are pneumatic which, as I’ve mentioned, makes them safer because they generally have better grip in wet weather conditions. They also have great shock absorption, working in tandem with the front spring and rear hydraulic suspension to deliver a buttery-smooth ride quality. Unlike others on this list, these do come with an inner tube fitted, so there’s an increased risk of suffering a flat tyre if you hit something sharp at the wrong angle.

The Pro 52V has an aesthetic that’s unlike other scooters with tyres of a similar size. The frame doesn’t hug the wheel in the same way but sits above the tyres in an insectoid arc, giving it an edgy, disconnected feel and making the tyres feel bigger than they are. This is highlighted by the futuristic, blue-accented swingarms.

In addition to being both stylish and comfortable, the Pro 52V is fast. When you press the accelerator, you’ll be able to reach 30 mph in just 6.2 seconds, hitting the top speed of 38 mph not long after. This is thanks to the increased traction of the wheels and the dual 1000W motors which work together to produce some pretty impressive torque. It’s strong enough to propel you up hills with a 40% incline grade without slowing you down too much.

Both tyres have hydraulic disc brakes, delivering double the stopping power. The brakes are exceptionally high quality and will slow you down with the slightest pressure of your fingers. The Pro 52V also features an electric regenerative brake which increases your braking power even further by cutting off the motor.

In the same vein of safety, the Pro 52V comes equipped with front and rear lights, the latter of which blinks whenever you put the brakes on.

As a long-range scooter, the Pro 52V is very impressive. It’s LG battery means you can expect a maximum of 56 miles when ridden in eco or single-mode and offers a recharge time of 5 hours if you opt to purchase the fast charger (10 hours with the standard charging unit). It’s unlikely you’ll want to stick in the eco restriction all the time, so you can expect your mileage to go down depending on how aggressively you ride. If ridden in turbo or dual-mode constantly, you’ll see less than half of the advertised range.

This scooter also features the standard Apollo handlebar-mounted display which allows visibility over key riding stats. Beneath this, you’ll also find the key ignition, which is a great safety feature, however, it’s worth bearing in mind that the scooter can still be rolled away without the key. I’d purchase a bike lock if you’re planning to leave it unattended for any length of time.

At 34.9 kg, the Pro 52V isn’t the most portable scooter, and it’s not been made for ease of transport. However, this is a trade-off most people are willing to make given the amount of power it puts out.

While the Pro 52V costs £1,699, which is more expensive than the other scooters on this list with similarly-sized wheels, it is more powerful than they are thanks to the combined might of its dual motors. It’s a great option if you want a scooter that delivers all the comfort large wheels have to offer but doesn’t compromise on power and Rapid acceleration.

WideWheel Pro

You might have guessed it from the name but this scooter is all about its 4 inch wide wheels. They deliver awesome comfort and stability, whilst their PU filling eliminates the risk of flats for a fun, stress-free ride. Even better, its dual motors deliver great power and speed for a thrilling ride you can rely on.

When it comes to the WideWheel Pro Dual, it’s clear that this scooter is all about the tyres – in case you missed it, the clue is in the name. It may not have the tallest wheels but what it lacks in height, it makes up for in width.

Measuring 8 x 4 inches, the WideWheel rivals the Dualtron X 2 in terms of tyre thickness, meaning you can achieve that same floating ride sensation without having to splurge the big bucks to get it. At 4 inches, these are some of the thickest tyres on the market, so not only will you get that unique surfing ride quality, but you’ll also get one of the most balanced and stable rides thanks to the increased contact patch.

Typically, bigger tyres have much better rollover than smaller ones but despite the WideWheel only having 8 inch wheels, it’s still able to take on obstacles and irregular terrain thanks to the extremely powerful, torque-generating, motors which will propel you at speeds up to 26 mph. So, as you speed along, the grip and traction from the wide wheels make light work of the ground below. This comes in handy, particularly when you’re facing a hill climb. The combination of torque, front and rear-wheel drive system and the grip of the wheels mean you can climb pretty much any hill, including those steep streets in San Francisco.

Because the WideWheel Pro’s tyres are so, well, wide, you’ll find that the traction on this scooter is much better than on scooters with thinner wheels. This is because there’s more tyre to grip the road. The tread on the WideWheel is pretty smooth, so you’ll find that it performs best on flat terrains such as tarmac or light forest trails. If you’re a fan of more hardcore off-roading, I’d recommend looking at something with knobbier tyres so you have extra grip on loose surfaces.

Despite the advantages of having ultra-wide tyres, it’s still important to remember that the wheels are only 8 inches tall so you won’t be able to roll over potholes like scooters featuring 10 inch tyres, but you can still drop into modest road imperfections. The front and rear spring suspension will take care of you and keep your legs and wrists happy. This means you’ll be able to hit the maximum range of 30 miles (if you ride conservatively) without feeling achy at the end of it.

Unlike the previous scooters I’ve reviewed on this list, the WideWheel Pro features solid tyres, rather than pneumatics. Usually, solid tyres are made from rubber, which can affect ride quality, but you won’t need to worry about this with the WideWheel. These tyres aren’t your bog-standard variety but are instead filled with PU foam. This means that they provide more cushioning and shock absorption than normal rubber tyres, whilst still giving you a flat-resistant advantage. They might not be as comfortable as air-filled tyres, but to an extent, they do give you the best of both worlds.

Each wheel has a disc brake positioned on it, which means you can expect responsive braking power when you pull the brake lever. Scooters with only a single-wheel braking system tend to take longer to slow down because stopping power is only being applied to one wheel, whereas with a dual system, your braking distance is significantly shorter, giving you more control.

Everything from the charcoal grey frame down to the wide mudguards, futuristic-looking suspension, uniquely shaped deck, and, of course, the ultra-wide wheels, give the WideWheel Pro the aesthetics of what I imagine an electric scooter designed by Lamborghini would look like. And it’s not just a pretty face either – the WideWheel features a reinforced design to make sure that you can enjoy the fun and thrill this scooter provides whilst feeling safe and secure at the same time.

Even the way you can fold the scooter makes it stand out from its competitors. You can simply fold the handlebar post down and push both handles in to make the scooter thin and compact – it’s ideal for storing. Don’t get me wrong, at 24.5 kg, this isn’t the lightest scooter but it’s manageable in most cases and won’t let you down.

Like all good scooters, it features a Smart LED screen so you can monitor your speed, total mileage, and voltage, as well as allowing you to switch between different riding modes or operate cruise control when you need to sit back and take a break. It also comes with bright front and rear headlights for nighttime riding.

The WideWheel Pro is quite simply, a fun electric scooter that will bring an instant smile to your face as soon as you step foot on it. Plus, at £1,035, it’s not too expensive, especially considering the power you get from its dual motors and the unique riding sensation provided by the ultra-wide wheels.

Powerful, super comfortable, and good value for money… what’s not to like? It even comes with a 90-day warranty and the support of Fluid Free Ride to work with you to find a solution to any issue that you may have – even if it’s not covered by the warranty.

I recommend the Widewheel Pro if you want an all-round, high performing electric scooter that you’ll never get bored of.

Dualtron Compact

Featuring solid 8 x 3.5 inch tyres, the Dualtron Compact is a dream if you want a top performance scooter, but you don’t want a machine that requires lots of maintenance. With a maximum speed of 40 mph and a 50-mile range, it lives up to the Dualtron hype, whilst its tyres banish the risk of flats and deliver a smooth ride for city-goers.

Dualtron is known for making the most powerful scooters, and the Dualtron Compact lives up to the hype. Like its older siblings, it also comes with chunky tyres that channel the typical oversized vibe Dualtron scooters are most well-known for.

With tyres measuring 8 x 3.5 inches, the Compact’s wheels are a tad smaller than others on the list, but they’re just as wide as those you’ll find on the Thunder. As a result, you’ll feel more stable and balanced when riding at a maximum speed of 40 mph than on other scooters with thinner tyres. However, as with other wide-wheeled scooters, be mindful of executing sharp turns or abrupt manoeuvres. Tyres this wide will need time to adjust to any sudden change in direction.

Something that sets the Compact apart from other scooters on this list is that its tyres are solid rubber all the way through. They don’t even contain any PU foam like the Widewheel Pro for extra cushioning. There are both positives and negatives to this.

On the bright side, you’ll never have to worry about getting a flat again – solid tyres are famously low-maintenance. However, on the other hand, the lack of cushioning means they provide little to no shock absorption when riding over rough surfaces. Luckily, the Compact features the Dualtron-standard changeable rubber cartridge suspension. Installing soft suspension here will help to make your ride more comfortable.

Most solid tyres have poor traction and perform badly in wet weather, however, those on the Compact are more textured than your run-of-the-mill rubber specimen. This means that they’ll have more grip than usual, although not enough to match up to their pneumatic counterparts. I wouldn’t class these as knobby tyres, but the extra tread on them means that they’ll be able to handle loose surfaces like dirt and mud which is where standard solid tyres would struggle. Steer clear of rough or rocky terrain though – you’ll feel the impact here.

Considering the combined 3400W power of its dual motors, the Compact is impressive for a scooter that only weighs 31.7 kg. In the grand scheme of things, this is still very heavy and not easily portable, but considering the size of its wheels, motors, and oversized frame, it’s an achievement that it doesn’t weigh more. The torque and Rapid acceleration are more than enough to satisfy any thrill-seeking enthusiast and, combined with the extra traction from the wheels, you’ll be able to maintain your speed whilst cruising confidently up hills with a 47% incline grade.

Its LG battery lives up to Dualtron’s stellar reputation, promising a maximum range of 50 miles. In reality, you’re likely to see less than this when riding in double-motor mode at top speed, or when doing lots of hill climbs. Dropping down to single-motor or moderating your speed will help you go further. When it comes to recharging, a quick charger will refill your battery in around 3 hours, but if you plan to stick with the standard charger, this will take closer to 12 hours.

Like the solid tyres, the brakes on the Compact are also designed for low-maintenance performance. It features a drum brake on each wheel, which means both wheels can slow down at the same time, bringing you to a halt more quickly. Drum brakes are both water and dirt-resistance, which makes them minimal maintenance. They might not be as efficient as hydraulics, but they still deliver strong braking performance when it matters.

Like all scooters in the Dualtron range, build quality is a standout feature. Made from aviation-grade aluminium alloy, the Compact is extremely tough and durable; it can easily support riders up to 120 kg. You won’t have any worries about this scooter falling apart mid-ride. It features bright dual LED headlights and taillights as well as brake lights and an LED strip on the stem. It also comes with a remote which controls the colour and pattern of the mood lighting.

On the handlebars, you’ll find the Dualtron-standard EYE controller which displays your speed, battery, and trip distance. You’ll also be able to operate your cruise control as well as adjust some of the scooter’s base settings such as your ABS (anti-lock braking system) and whether the scooter functions as a kick-and-go or a zero start. You can also purchase the fingerprint lock that comes as standard on the Dualtron X 2 and add it to the Compact’s cockpit set up to increase the scooter’s security.

At £2,300, the Dualtron Compact is expensive, but this isn’t a surprise given that it comes from the Dualtron family and channels the edgy attitude riders expect to see from this line of scooters. This is a great choice for riders who love the idea of waving goodbye to punctures and high maintenance scooter components and plan to stick to flatter, less rough surfaces.

MotoTec KnockOut fat tire Electric Scooter Review

The MotoTec KnockOut fat tire electric scooter is our top choice for the best fat tire electric scooter of 2022.

It looks awesome and it handles great.

When you first receive this scooter you will need to assemble a few parts but most of the scooter is already pre-assembled and everything is self-explanatory.

Tires

Because of its wide tires, 225/55/8 to be exact, you essentially don’t need a kickstand because the MotoTec KnockOut will balance itself.

These fat tires make for a very stable and smooth ride.

Standard Features

The MotoTec KnockOut comes standard with a padded seat, and from our tests has no problem carrying 2 large adult (450lbs – 204kg) for an extended period of time.

Safety features

The MotoTec KnockOut has Full hydraulic brakes front and rear, providing safe braking conditions on any terrain.

Motor

The 2000w rear hub motor propels you to a top speed of 25mph ( 40km/h).

When we tested the MotoTec KnockOut with two people on it it still reached the same top speed.

Thanks to this 2000w motor the MotoTec KnockOut is able to climb hills and inclines up to 30 degrees which is pretty steep for an electric scooter in this class.

Battery

The MotoTec KnockOut features the latest in Electric Scooter battery technology.

The MotoTec KnockOut has two separate battery packs, 60V 18Ah Lithium Ion batteries for a combined 36Ah.

Improved Performance and Longer Range on two battery packs (30 miles (48km) with a single battery and 60 miles – 96km with the 2 battery packs)

Up to 1,500 charge cycles – 3x more than other fat tire scooter batteries.

The charging time is around 6 hours.

Weight and maximum load

The MotoTec KnockOut weighs in at 200lbs (90kg).

It has a maximum load is 450lbs (204kg)

These tires are road tires and they deliver a very smooth, stable, and comfortable ride.

Conclusion

The MotoTec Knockout was great fun to ride.

I took a lot of trips with my girlfriend on the back and I never got into a situation that this scooter couldn’t handle.

I bought one myself after the tests I did, to write this review because I loved it so much and it was such a capable and fun fat tire scooter

Features of the MotoTec KnockOut:

2) The Runner Up

The Mototec Knockout 1000W Fat Tire Scooter

A worthy rival to its bigger (more powerful) brother, the Mototec KnockOut 2000W. This is a very capable and incredibly fun fat tire electric scooter to ride.

Mototec Regular Fat Tire Scooter Specs:

Max Power: 2000W Max Speed: 32mph – 50,5km/h Battery: 60V 18Ah Tire Size: 255/55 – 8″
Range: 20 miles – 32km Rider Weight: 450 lbs – 204 kg Max Incline: 25° Scooter weight: 200 lbs – 91 kg

MotoTec Knockout 1000W Fat Tire Electric Scooter Review

The MotoTec Fat Tire is our second choice for the best fat tire electric scooter.

It is an awesome scooter offering a lot of bang for your buck.

Like other fat tire electric scooters, the MotoTec Fat Tire Scooter is a joy to ride on and a lot of fun.

Motor

The MotoTec Fat Tire has a powerful 2000w motor with a top speed of 32mph – 50,5km/h

Thanks to its 2000w motor the MotoTec Fat Tire is able to climb hills up to 25 degrees, making sure you can tackle any hill or incline that comes in your way.

Battery

The 60v 18Ah battery is powerful enough for a range of 20 miles – 32km.

Charging time is 6 to 8 hours which is pretty standard in the electric scooter industry.

Safety:

To stop this big electric scooter MotoTec fitted high-performance hydraulic disk brakes in both the front and the rear.

It also comes standard with a key ignition lock.

The 9″ wide 225/55 8-inch tires give it excellent road performance, and it feels stable at any speed in any situation. Even in wet conditions, the scooter stayed perfectly stable.

Standard Features

The MotoTec Fat Tire Scooter comes standard with a Full LED headlight front and rear, a key ignition, a kickstand, and a license plate bracket. The weight limit of 450lbs – 204Kg (2 full-size adults) resembles the tests we did for this review. The variable throttle is in our view better than the gas lever on most electric scooters and responds very well.

Tires

This scooter has inflatable tires (225-55-18 on our review unit) which are very comfortable but can leave you with a flat tire if you’re not careful. The tires on the MotoTec Fat Tire Scooter are road tires.

These 18-inch tires provide enough cushioning to compensate that this scooter has NO shock absorbers. The tires offer enough dampening even with two adults, but the MotoTec KnockOut above provides a smoother ride thanks to its hydraulic shocks.

PRO TIP: You can optionally use Run Flat tire sealant when you ever have a flat tire.

Weight and maximum load

The MotoTec Fat Tire Scooter weighs 200 lbs – 91 kg making it a big and heavy scooter, but also a very stable one and it offers a smooth and comfortable ride thanks to its size and wide tires.

The maximum load (this scooter can take is 450lbs – 204Kg)

In our test, we drove it with two adults (for a combined weight of 396lbs) on various roads with flat surfaces and inclines and it reached its advertised top speed of 25mph (40km/h). It had no trouble getting to that speed and maintaining it.

NOTE: Because it only has a seat for one driver, it wasn’t a comfortable test to perform, but to see if the advertised numbers were correct, we did it anyway.

Wheels and Tires:

The beefy tires on the Mototec Fat Tire scooter are 225/55-8 wide.

best, electric, scooters, wheels, tyres, wheel

These tires are road tires and deliver a very comfortable and smooth ride.

Conclusion

The MotoTec Fat Tire Scooter put a smile on my face every time I drove it.

I got many thumbs-up and head-turning looks when I drove it.

This is a great fat tire electric scooter for anyone looking to commute (when you don’t need to take it with you on the train or bus) or just to cruise around, go to the park, or the shop. All in all an awesome fun scooter to ride and a worthy rival to its bigger and more powerful brother.

  • 60V 18Ah Lithium-Ion Battery

  • Climbing Grade 30°

Pros and Cons:

3 Second Runner Up

The MotoTec Vulcan

This is an awesome fat tire electric scooter for its price. It is very quick and has off-road capabilities.

The MotoTec Vulcan Specs:

Max Power: 1600W Max Speed: 31mph – 48 km/h Battery: 48V 12Ah Tire Size: 145/70 6″
Range: 20 miles – 32km Rider Weight: 310 lbs – 140 kg Max Incline: 20° Scooter weight: 143 lbs – 65 kg

This scooter is lots of fun, and very capable on all types of terrain. It has a 1600w motor which makes it very powerful.

So powerful in fact that the max load capacity is 310lbs – 140kg (making it very suitable for heavy adults).

Battery power, Range and Speed:

The Mototec Vulcan combines four 12V 12Ah LG Batteries for 48V total.

The range is 20 miles – 32 km which will almost certainly get you to your destination.

The top speed is 31mph – 50km/h which is average for this type of scooter.

Rider Weight:

The max load capacity is 310lbs – 140kg (making it very suitable for heavy adults).

Safety:

To stop this beefy fat tire electric scooter there are very grippy disc brakes in the front and the rear. The brakes felt safe and up to the job. I remember that on the test ride, I had to slam the brakes for a car that took a right without even looking in its mirror and I stopped safely and in time, so even in emergency situations these disk brakes offer plenty of grip.

Features:

The big 145/70/16 tires are really grippy and can handle both on-road and off-road terrain.

We tested the Mototec Vulcan on tarmac, sand, gravel, and on the beach and we were really impressed by its power and performance on all these terrains. Although I have to warn you that riding on the beach with scooters that have big fat tires like this Vulcan, the sand gets into places you wouldn’t have thought possible if you don’t suit up properly.

The Mototec Vulcan fat tire scooter also comes with a removable padded seat. We preferred this seat over no seat because the deck is wide but not straight. There is a curve on the deck which makes for a bit of an awkward ride.

If you are looking for a foldable fat tire scooter, then you’ve found it. This is the only fat tire electric scooter model we know of that is foldable.

Truth be told that although it is foldable, it isn’t very portable due to its weight of 143 lbs – 65 kg. I go to the gym 4 times a week and I had trouble carrying this scooter for longer than 5 minutes.

One more thing to note is that with this particular fat tire electric scooter, its motor is connected to the rear wheel through a chain, which is the same system a dirt bike uses. This setup multiplies the torque the motor provides and enhances the Vulcan’s off-road capabilities.

I had a blast with it in the dunes and on nature trails where I live, it was very fun off-road. The fact that the Vulcan comes with off-road tires just added to the fun, and makes it very capable on uneven terrain.

Charging time:

The charging time is around 6 hours, but it is a very powerful battery so that makes up for the longer charging time. I plugged it in before I went to bed and it was always fully charged when I went to the office with it.

Suspension:

The suspension is very good at soaking up speed bumps and potholes. In the front, there is a single suspension shock and in the rear a Dual suspension. This electric scooter does a good job of providing you with a smooth ride.

Wheels and Tires:

The Vulcan’s tires aren’t as big as its bigger brothers’ tires but they still come in at 145/70-6 which are really beefy tires.

The tires are also knobbed making them also suitable for going off-road, and they are pneumatic.

Standard features of the MotoTec Vulcan:

  • 1600W – Brushless motor
  • 48V 12Ah LG Battery
  • Front and Rear Disc Brakes
  • Front Suspension and Rear Dual Shock Suspension
  • 145/70-6 pneumatic Tires
  • High Tense Steel Frame
  • Climbing Grade 20°
  • Maximum 310lbs – 140kg Load

Pros and Cons:

It can take on any terrain

Long battery charging time

It is essential to keep safety in mind when speeding on an electric scooter. Most electric scooters have manufacturer-set speed limits that range. It is critical to stick to these limits to ride safely and responsibly. If you want to go faster than the speed limit, consider upgrading to a more robust model or a motor scooter.

Many fat tire electric scooters have different riding modes that allow you to adjust the speed and power output to suit your needs better. Some models, for example, may have an eco-mode for longer electric scooter battery life and a sport mode for faster speeds and stronger acceleration. Understanding your scooter’s riding mode and adjusting it as needed for peak performance is critical.

Knowing to brake quickly and safely when stopping your electric scooter in an emergency is essential. In addition to the scooter’s brakes, you can use your feet to help slow down or come to a stop. For instance, dragging your feet along the ground while applying the brakes can help you stop faster and keep your balance.

Overall, taking the time to familiarize yourself with the features and controls of your electric scooter is crucial for safe and successful riding.

Know the Functions of the Different Components of Electric Scooters

Understanding the various components of your electronic scooter is critical for mastering its use and extending its lifespan.

First and foremost, you must understand your motor scooter’s battery because it determines its range and speed. Read the manufacturer’s instructions on how to charge and care for the battery and how to replace it if necessary.

Another vital component of your long range electric scooter is the motor. The motor propels the scooter and controls its speed and acceleration. It is critical to understand how to use the engine and adjust its settings for different riding conditions, such as inclines or rough terrain.

The brakes, lights, and control panel are also essential to be aware of. Understanding how to operate and maintain these components is critical to ride safely and effectively.

Practice Basic Maneuvers and Test the Performance of Your Electric Scooter

After you’ve become acquainted with the features and controls of your electric scooter, you should practice basic maneuvers and test their performance; this will help you become more comfortable and confident with your motor scooter while ensuring it performs at its best.

Begin by practicing fundamental maneuvers such as turning, stopping, and accelerating in a safe and open environment; this will allow you to understand how your motor scooter handles and responds to commands.

Then you should begin testing the limits of your electrical scooter. Take it for longer rides to see how far a single electric scooter battery charge will take you. If you intend to use your scooter for commuting, test your route to ensure it can bear any inclines or obstacles.

Check the battery level, tire pressure, and brakes regularly, and seek professional assistance if necessary. Thus, are you ready to take your electric scooter game to the next level? Check out the Varla Eagle One PRO electric scooter!

Safety First on Electric Scooter

When it comes to electric scooters, safety should always take precedence. First and foremost, wear suitable safety equipment. A helmet to protect your head in a fall or collision and knee and elbow pads, gloves, and strong footwear are all recommended.

In addition to safety equipment, consider the following riding recommendations to guarantee a safe and pleasurable ride:

Follow traffic restrictions

  • Observe traffic signals
  • Ride in approved bike lanes or on the side of the road
  • Use hand signals as necessary
  • Look for pedestrians, other vehicles, and any road hazards
  • Maintain vigilance and attention on the road ahead

Avoid Speeding

While pushing the limits of your motor scooter may be tempting, stick to the suggested speed limit for your model. High speed might increase the likelihood of an accident or injury.

Take Careful Turns

When taking turns, stop or slow down to maintain control of your scooter. Sharp turns or sudden movements can cause your scooter to tip over, leading to injuries or damage to your scooter.

Avoid Riding in Bad Weather

Wet or snowy roads can be dangerous, increasing the chance of an accident, and high gusts can disrupt your balance and control of your scooter.

Maintenance and Care

Maintaining and caring for your electric scooter, whether it’s a commuter scooter, long-range electric scooter, motor scooter, or electric scooter for adults, is critical to keeping it in good shape. Here are a few pointers to remember:

  • Please charge the electric scooter battery regularly to ensure it lasts as long as possible and functions correctly.
  • Inspect the tires frequently to ensure they are inflated and not worn out.
  • Maintain the motor scooter clean and debris-free, especially if you often ride it in dusty or dirty circumstances.
  • Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for any required maintenance or repairs, and seek expert assistance if necessary.

Advanced Techniques and Tips

Experiment with different riding positions: Try several riding postures to see which ones are most comfortable or productive for you, considering your electric battery scooter and riding style.

  • Use your body weight to your advantage: When accelerating or going up hills on your commuter scooter, shift your weight forward to give the electronic scooter more power. When braking or going down hills, shift your weight to maintain balance and control.
  • Learn how to handle uneven terrain: Keep your weight centered, and be prepared to adjust your speed and direction as needed.
  • Invest in quality accessories: Adding accessories like a phone mount, storage bags, or a comfortable seat can make your electric battery scooter more versatile and enjoyable.
