Choose your Kaabo electric scooters, our tips according to the user's need and desire

The electric scooter has grown rapidly in recent years. Indeed, they have particularly attracted in the big cities. Self-service scooters are popular for short distances or walking around the city. 

Aimed at adults, electric scooters are widely used for daily trips such as going to work. In addition to self-service scooters, it is possible to purchase a personal one. So just make your choice according to the many brands and models available on the market. 

Depending on the use the individual wishes to make of it, the scooter model will change. Indeed, if it is for use in the city or in the countryside on roads, the capabilities of the scooter will vary. 

Indeed, depending on the use and the surface of the slide, some scooters are more suitable than others. This is due to suspensions, tires, brakes, engine or battery. A scooter with cross tyres, good suspensions and an imposing jig will be much more suitable for use on roads and not in the city. On the contrary, a small and light scooter will be perfect for use in the city.

The technical criteria to take into account when choosing your Kaabo electric scooter

Among the criteria to be taken into account, we can name the most important: technical characteristics. 

The engine 

There are a significant number of engines of different capacities. The more powerful the engine, the more speed it will bring to the scooter. Thus, the larger the scooter has, the more powerful it will have. 

Manufacturers give two information about the engines on the scooters, the number of Watts and the maximum speed. Depending on the model, there may be one or two engines. The speed of electric scooters then varies from 25 to 40 km/h depending on the power of the engine. This can also be different depending on the weight on it and the slope of the road. 

The advantage of scooters is that they do not require any particular maintenance. For urban use, a scooter that does not exceed 25 km/h will be perfect. On the contrary, for use on private tracks, a higher speed may be more appreciable.

The battery

It is the second most important factor in an electric scooter. Indeed, the battery and its capacity offer a more or less important battery life. It is thanks to it that you will be able to travel more or less kilometers. 

In general, the range of scooters ranges from 30 km to 150 km depending on the model. This way, you'll need to consider this element based on how you want to use it.

You should also know that the larger the battery, the longer it will take to recharge it. Recharge times usually range from 4 hours to 8 p.m. depending on battery capacity. It is then necessary to allow a more or less important time to be able to use his scooter in complete serenity.

For daily use over small distances, 40 km is relatively correct. On the other hand, for long walks with family or friends, a minimum of 60 km is required.  

The brakes

It is very important to be able to brake safely with your electric scooter. That's why the braking system is a factor to consider when making the right choice. A scooter that can reach a high speed must have an important and efficient braking system. 

For scooters, there may be electric, drum, disc and hydraulic brakes. These different brakes are more or less efficient, which is why not all scooters have the same. 

Braking is part of the safety equipment of an electric scooter. For emergency braking, it is important that the scooter can stop quickly. That's why, on powerful electric scooters, hydraulic and/or disc brakes. On the other hand, for smaller models that do not reach high speeds, one will opt instead for an electric brake and/or drum.

The wheels

The size of the wheels is important when choosing the electric scooter. Sizes can range from 7.5 inches to 13 inches. So whether you're going from small wheels to bigger ones, you'll benefit from different experiences. Tires are an important factor to consider when choosing your Kaabo electric scooter.

Weight

The electric scooter has the advantage of being able to bend to carry it everywhere. But for this it is better that it is not too heavy because otherwise it is difficult to wear it. Thus, for urban use, a small size is preferable. The Kaabo Skywalker 8 is the best placed with its 16 kg.

The comfort of your electric scooter to choose your Kaabo electric scooter

After carefully assessing each technical point of a scooter, comfort must be taken into account. Read our tips for choosing your Kaabo electric scooter.

Suspensions

They can cushion the small defects of the road and the shocks you may encounter. It is not uncommon to have to ride on paving stones or a road in poor condition, this is where the suspensions make sense. 

Indeed, the more effective the suspensions, the less you will feel the inconveniences of the road. This gives you significant comfort and that you will enjoy during your wrinkles and outings. 

The Kaabo Mantis have better suspensions than the Skywalkers, for example, even if they all perform well.

Tires

Tires increase comfort when you're on the go. Indeed, the quality of the wheels and tires offers a more or less good grip on the road. There are different types of tires: Tubeless, air chamber, full, gum. Each of these tires has different qualities that offers various advantages. Indeed, some tires will be more resistant than others or more absorbent for road defects. 

This is an equipment to take into account when buying an electric scooter. They will bring you comfort and road safety during your wrinkles.

Secondary criteria

Some equipment and criteria come second in the choice of an electric scooter. This is because they have less impact on driving and comfort but are also important to consider. 

Deck width

This criterion may be less taken into account by users, although for others it will be important. This can be useful depending on how you use the scooter and the size of the person using it. 

For off-road, the Kaabo Wolf Warrior is perfect because the deck is wide. For a person with a more or less large body will also need a wider deck for more comfort. People who also have a large shoe size will be more comfortable with a wider deck to be able to put their feet properly on the scooter. 

Height of the handlebars

It is above all a matter of taste and morphology. Depending on the size of the person, the handlebars will have to be more or less mounted. This brings more comfort when the handlebars are at the right height. 

The handlebars adjust when you are standing on the scooter with your arms slightly bent. The height of the handlebars varies depending on the size of the scooter. The Kaabo Mantis have a handlebar higher than the Skywalkers.

Horn

This is an option on electric scooters. Although most scooter models have a horn, some do not. However, it is a security to be heard warning of his arrival when needed. In the city, the scooter horn is used primarily to warn pedestrians.

It is possible to install a doorbell on some models that do not have a horn.

Mud guard

This is not the case for all models of electric scooters, but many of them have a mud guard. 

Particularly present on off-road scooters, sludge guards protect the user from any splashes of sludge, water and other residues that may be present on the road. 

Thus, it is best not to ride on all surfaces with some scooters that are not very well equipped. It is more common to find a mud guard on the back of electric scooters. However, it is possible to find a wheel guard also at the front on some models. 

For example, the Skywalkers and Wolf Warriors have front and/or rear sludge guards. 

The equipment and options to choose your Kaabo electric scooter

After taking into account all the most important points and characteristics, equipment are also factors that facilitate driving. Indeed, on some models electric scooters may find options such as: 

  • Speed regulator
  • Speed limiter
  • Lcd
  • LED lights
  • Bluetooth connection 
  • Fingerprint
  • ….

Not all of these options are available on all electric scooters on the market. Have can find them on top and more or less high-end scooters. 

The cruise control and speed limiter is present on all Kaabo ranges, be it the Skywalker, the Mantis or the Wolf Warrior. These allow to regulate its speed and not exceed the speed allowed.

In addition, the Kaabo have an LCD screen that can control the speed, battery charge or the remaining battery life. This screen is really a plus on the scooter in order to be able to fully control his electric scooter. 

LED lights allow you to use your electric scooter both day and night. This make it easier to see and be seen by other users.
