Electric scooters have grown massively in popularity in recent years. They are commonly used for short commutes, and leisure riding around towns and cities.
As the sophistication of the models develops, and the demand and diversity for their use grow, manufacturers are upping their game on how electric scooters can be used.
As motors become more powerful, suspension is added and the frames more robust, it means that some electric scooters can even handle off-roading.
Of course, they will not manage the challenging trials that electric bikes can. But for thrill-seekers, taking an e-scooter off-road can be great fun and a more extreme riding experience.
In this article, we are going to look at which off-road electric scooters come out as top choices and why.
Our winner - Maike KK10S
WHAT WE LOVED
This scooter is fast, Dangerously fast. If you are not used to riding a scooter, or have only ridden a standard rental version, then riding the Maike will take some getting used to.
Its top speed is a ridiculous 56 mph. For adrenaline junkies, this will allow you to push yourself to the limits – just take care, especially if off-roading. Big bumps at top speed are certainly hazardous.
The Maike is also a great option for heavier riders. It can carry up to 200kg in weight. Because it has such a powerful motor, even when it is carrying more weight, it still has fantastic acceleration and high torque.
This scooter has enormous power, with a whopping 2500W dual motor. This makes off-roading all the more thrilling. It handles inclines with ease and has incredible acceleration.
With any off-road scooter, high-quality suspension is essential. You get a comfortable riding experience with dual suspension shock absorption.
When you order your scooter, you have the choice of selecting solid road or pneumatic tires. If you plan to do a lot of off-roading, it would be better to go for the air-filled tires. While it means you may have to deal with a puncture at some point down the road, they will offer additional support on the rougher terrain.
The battery on the Makie is a 38.5v and this means you can get up to 60 miles in distance, depending on your weight and riding style. If you love a long-distance adventure, this makes this model appealing.
A lot of the more powerful models, that have a longer battery life, take a long time to charge. It is nice that this scooter comes with a dual charger. This means, even though the battery is bigger than that of an average scooter, it still only takes 8 hours to reach full charge.
WHY IT MIGHT NOT WORK FOR YOU
The biggest downside to this scooter is the fact that it is an absolute tank. Of course, this helps to ensure that it offers good stability and durability for riding off-road, but it weighs over 100lbs. It is even an effort to lift it in and out of the trunk of a car, never mind trying to carry it any distance.
The Makie kk10S is well suited to off-roading. It has a durable frame, decent suspension, a heck of a lot of power, and a battery allowing you to go further distances. It is just a shame it is such a cumbersome model. You don’t want to be having to lift this bad boy about too much!
