INOKIM OxO

INOKIM OxO Review

£2,199.00
The INOKIM OxO is a scooter that divides the scootering world. On one side you have the thrill-seekers, who'll think it lacks speed and oomph. And on the other, you’ll have those who are all about build and ride quality, who'll think it's superior to anything else because of these traits. On paper, the OxO isn't slow. After all, it has a top speed of 40 mph. But its sluggish throttle response and lack of urgency make the scooter feel a lot slower than it is. There are a lot of good things, though, and none more so than its rubber suspension and single-sided swingarms. The two combined do a fantastic job at soaking up undulations like a hot knife cutting through butter, while the damping keeps the wheels in contact with the ground below. This, alongside the crisp, sharp hydraulic brakes bring the scooter to a stop in 2.7 meters — which is pretty much unheard of in the world of performance scooters. Whether or not the OxO is the Rolls Royce of the scooter world will depend on if you can let its flaws slide - read our full review to decide.

EMOVE Touring Review

£699.00 -22%
Portable, comfortable, and affordable, what more could you ask for? The EMOVE Touring is the only commuter scooter to forgo the standard single spring suspension, instead opting to triple down on the shock absorption capabilities of all those that came before it by adding a dual-pronged set of coil springs that flank the front wheel for maximum cushioning. In cahoots with the dual rear springs, the Touring delivers a supremely smooth ride and that’s why we awarded it with the best-in-class suspension (which is quite the accolade considering we have 46 commuter-style scooters in our 100+ strong database). With its ultra-portable frame aided by multiple folding mechanisms - including a telescopic stem and foldable handlebars - the Touring carves out its place as one of the best entry-level scooters.

Zero 11X Review

£2,895.00
Though the Zero 11X shares its branding and colour scheme with the likes of its little bros – the Zero 8, 9, 10, and 10X – that’s pretty much where the comparisons end. Because the 11X – a scooter with the specs of a motorcycle, but built more like a tank – ups the ante by a huge margin. With 60 mph of concrete-scorching speed and up to 90 miles of range in its skillset, the 11X isn’t just a top performer – it’s a bonafide beast that needs an experienced hand to tame it. However, when you take into consideration the list of ultra-performance models that it competes with, there are better scooters to choose from. Find out why – along with the 10 things you need to know about the Zero 11X in our thorough review.

Zero 10X 52V Review

£1,380.00
The Zero 10X 52V was, once upon a time, the go-to performance scooter but sadly this scooter has had its heyday. While it benefits from adjustable suspension, chunky pneumatic tyres, and strong hydraulic brakes, there're many models that you can get your hands on for the same (or less) money, that outstrip it for specs, features, and build quality. Is the Zero 10X 52V worth the money? Is it right for you? What are the best alternatives? We’ll tackle all these questions and more, bringing you the key things you need to know.

Zero 10 Review

£1,145.00
The Zero 10 is the middle child of the Zero range. Not quite a commuter scooter and not quite a fully-fledged performance ride, either, it will suit riders looking to take the step up from a slower, more conventional scooter. That’s not to say the Zero 10 doesn’t have some stellar features, though. With customizable handlebar height and foldable handlebars, it’s plenty portable – and its optional seat attachment and LED lights are sure to win many admirers.

INOKIM Ox Review

£1,399.00
When I hear the words ‘INOKIM Ox’, the first things that spring to mind are build and ride quality. And while I'd love to surprise you, this is exactly what the Ox Super brings to the table. The rubber torsion suspension system is accompanied by adjustable swing arms and plush air-filled tyres to deliver a supremely soft ride that makes it one of the most comfortable scooters we’ve ever tested. Alongside its best-in-class suspension, the Super delivers some unique features like the LED lights that automatically turn on when the scooter’s sensors detect low light. But like the Hero, its predecessor, when push comes to shove and we dig deep into performance, it lacks bite. While it might not be the fastest scooter on the block, its redeeming attribute is its large 60V 21Ah LG battery. Thanks to a bigger and higher-quality battery than the Hero, it delivers an additional 19 miles of ride time which is the equivalent to a 54% greater range. Its extended mileage combined with its superb ride quality makes the Ox Super one of the best long-range electric scooters.

Apollo Explore Review

£1,145.00
On the hunt for a scooter that straddles the line between entry-level and performance? Look no further, the Apollo Explore is a well-rounded model primed to deliver a high-quality riding experience. Sporting a 52V 18.2Ah Dynavolt battery and a 1000W motor with 3-speed settings, it is the perfect companion for urban rides. And it doesn’t stop there, touted as one of the most compact scooters in its class, the Explore benefits from 3 intuitive folding mechanisms. Plus, riders will be pleased to hear that its 10 inch pneumatic tyres and spring suspension system are capable of delivering a smooth, comfortable riding experience. From safety to style, the Explore has it all. Its two high-performance disc brakes deliver dependable stopping power whilst its stylish Fast & Furious inspired lighting setup adorns it the appearance of a souped-up street racing car. However, if you’re willing to give up some style for improved specs, there are a few other scooters that you should consider - read our in-depth review to see what scooters we recommend as alternatives.

Apollo City Review

£894.00
City by name and city by nature, the Apollo City is the perfect urban ride and an essential consideration for anyone looking for something light and zippy for nipping around urban streets. Weighing in at a diddy 17.7 kg, boasting a quick stem folding mechanism, and intuitive foldable handlebars, the Apollo City is on the lighter and compact end of the scooter spectrum, making it ideal for those looking for a portable model. As you might expect from Apollo, the City comes with a cracking warranty that extends coverage for up to two years. Delivering a comfortable ride with its dual suspension system, effective braking, and great build quality, it’s a reliable choice for those taking their first steps into the world of scooters and who are keen to have the backup of a good warranty.

Zero 9 Review

£695.00
While its lightweight frame and basic specs will endear it to newbies, its pneumatic tyres, spring suspension, and compact folding frame mean it’ll also appeal to those looking for a comfortable commuter scooter. That said, the Zero 9 is operating in a crowded niche. So, in this review, we’ll explore how it compares to a wide range of similar scooters on the key metrics of speed, mileage, and ride quality, and put the 9’s extra features under the microscope. I’ll also be letting you in on one of the best-kept secrets in the electric scooter industry – so read on to find out if the Zero 9 is right for you.

Mantis Review

£1,375.00
The Mantis Base is quick, affordable, and fashioned with the same best-in-class suspension system as its bigger brothers, the Mantis Pro and Pro SE. More importantly, it’s a fantastic gateway into the world of performance scooters. As a scaled-back version of the Mantis Pro, you can be forgiven for confusing the two – but don’t let your eyes deceive you. While the Base doesn’t boast all the bells and whistles of its doppelganger, it weighs less, can go just as fast, and is a whole £125 cheaper – meaning it’s a scooter that any self-respecting bargain hunter will find impossible to ignore.

Apollo Phantom Review

£1,899.00
It’s a rare day when I’m not exactly sure how to begin a review or summarise a scooter in a single paragraph. Usually, I like to highlight the top features but this time, I’m truly stumped. Not because this scooter has nothing going for it, but because it has everything going for it. Whilst the first batch of stock flew off the shelves faster than a group of bargain-hunters rushing through the sliding doors of a Best Buy store on Black Friday, I was lucky enough to get an exclusive look at this titan of a scooter, and let me tell you, the Apollo Phantom is an absolute marvel in scooter innovation. It’s seen what its competitors can do and has savagely outpaced them with its sophisticated style, monolithic acceleration, and never-seen-before proprietary design and features. Whether you’re a die-hard dirt track fan, a leisurely cruiser, or a high-speed adrenaline junkie, the Phantom can match your preferences, delivering a first-rate experience in all departments. This scooter is the result of a whole ton of testing and research based on feedback from riders like you and me. It really is the scooter of the people and, if you’re anything like me, it’s one short ride away from becoming your favorite scooter of 2021.

Mantis Pro Review

£1,500.00
If the electric scooter industry was a high school, the Mantis Pro would be the most popular kid. The perfect blend of style, specs, and uncompromising performance, the Mantis Pro is the people’s champion – not to mention my top pick of the best 45 to 50 mile scooters. Striking a seemingly effortless balance between power, distance, weight, and cost, the Mantis Pro is the all-rounder of the all-rounders, and truly offers something for (just about) everyone. But is it right for you? Here are the key things you need to know about the Mantis Pro.

  1. Hi Gavin,

    Thanks for your comment. I don’t believe GoTrax is releasing a new GXL any time soon. They do offer the GoTrax Apex, though, which is a better version of the GXL V2. You can read more about the Apex in my full review here.

  2. Hi Elijah,

    Glad I could help you! Thanks for flagging the wrong code. Please try ELECTRICSCOOTERINSIDER.

    Enjoy cruising!

    Thanks,

  3. Hi Dan,

    Great question! I’m going to be updating the page with a brand new list of the best long-range electric scooters in the next few weeks. Keep your eye’s peeled as the EMOVE Cruiser may make an appearance (spoiler alert…it does).

    – Josh

  4. Hi Dhiren,

    Great question! I would opt for the Zing E8 for younger children. For teens, the E22 will be best. The E22 is too heavy for younger children.

    Thanks

    – Josh

  5. Hi Phil,

    You can buy the ZING E10 directly from Segway, here.

  6. Hi Antony,

    You are correct that the Wolf Warrior has a maximum mileage, under prime conditions, of 70 miles.

    Eco mode limits you to about 20 mph so you should be able to take full advantage of the mileage.

    Thanks, enjoy cruising around on the Wolf!

  7. Hi Ace,

  11. Hi Max,

    There are few cheap models out there that have decent mileage. My list of the best cheap electric scooters might help you find a scooter more in your price bracket.

  12. Hi Arja,

    Unfortunately, I only review the scooters – I don’t sell them. I hope you’re able to get your hands on the Mototec FatBoy. Let me know if you need any more help.

    – Josh

  13. Hi Michelle,

    Traveling around Europe and exploring cities on a scooter sounds awesome! My advice would be to opt for a model that, like you said, is light, compact, and has a quick recharge time.

    The Unagi Model One is the lightest scooter I’ve reviewed (it weighs just 23 lbs), folds and can be stored easily, and takes 4-5 hours to fully charge giving you 15.5 miles to cruise round the cities.

    Alternatively, the INOKIM Light is another good option (30 lbs, folds, 4-5 hours charge for 20 miles).

    Or, if you want a cheap model go for the GoTrax GXL 2 (26.4 lbs, folds, 4 charge hours for 12 miles).
