What’s included with it?

Of course, you’ll definitely get the scooter for one! It also comes with a built in battery and its very own charger, so you can top it up when you need to give it some juice.

What are the features?

The scooter itself is incredibly versatile and sleek in terms of both use and storage.

It has large satin black alloys alongside a gorgeous wooden deck, as well as sport-level tyres to make sure the scooter is save and reliable to use. It is made with great care to ensure you stand out when using it, have great quality and get as much out of it for such a reasonable price.

The motor inside the scooter is called a ‘brushless motor’, which will give you a guaranteed excellent performance compared to other scooters on the market with brush motors, which can hinder the length of time in use.

When you aren’t using the scooter, there’s nothing worse than keeping something that simply does not fit anywhere or takes up space where you don’t want it to be. However, with the Chaos Sport scooter, you can fold it up with one simple touch, giving you plenty more opportunities to hide it away when you don’t need it!

What is the performance like?

Overall, the scooter has an excellent level of performance that will make any user feel like they have really found a bargain. It has a chain driving system, as well as a 12AH battery, which combined with the brushless motor and sport tyres will keep you buzzing all day long. Its maximum range is twenty kilometres, which is an ample distance to give the scooter a go. The battery life will keep going for over 250 cycles, meaning you only have to charge it on the odd rare occasion.

How big/heavy is it?

The Chaos Sport scooter is not only fast, but also incredibly light. Its minimal design means it only weighs forty-six kilograms, and is both 44 inches long, and 42 inches high. In order for the scooter to work effectively, the maximum load is 120kg, so it can zip away with ease.

What are the other specifications?

As well as the extra bells and whistles that this moped has, it’s also incredibly safe and reliable to use. The brakes themselves are disc brakes, meaning that they can be counted on to come to safe and gradual halt when required. The electric motor is great for reducing your carbon footprint, as all it requires is a simple charge up!

chaos big wheel electric scooterThe frame is made from chromoly steel, which you can count on to be sturdy and supportive of a respective weight. It has a twist grip type throttle, so you really have all its power at your very fingertips. Although it isn’t road legal, it is suitable to use on private roads and off-road with a gentle terrain, nothing too rocky!

How fast does it go?

The Chaos Sport scooter goes at a top speed of 40 kilometres per hour, giving you an incredible rush as you feel the wind whipping past you. Of course, this scooter is a lot more minimal in frame and design than an average car or motorbike, so any faster than forty would feel pretty terrifying! The scooter is light and simple in build, so it can hit this top speed with ease.chaos powerboard electric scooter review

Is there a warranty?

Yes there is! The manufacturer’s warranty covers the first six months of use, covering any defects in parts that are on the scooter. The battery has a separate warranty of three months, so it’s worth keeping an eye on everything on the scooter for the first few months of ownership.

Overall, this scooter really is a total steal off the market, being at a reasonable price of just over five hundred pounds. If you want to get a set of wheels that you can count on and not have to break the bank, go ahead and take this scooter out for a spin 🙂

The EvoMotion E-3000-RX Electric Scooter

Are you bored of turning up the air conditioning in your poky car in the height of summer?

There is nothing better than feeling the breeze whipping past you on a moped, the ultimate feeling of freedom as you’re getting to your destination.

It’s far from the fuel-draining, oily mess you have probably been donning as your first car.

The EvoMotion E-3000-RX is a groundbreaking advance into the future of mopeds, with its clean and electric power that benefits both your bank balance and the environment. Its powerful motor and quirky design will really turn heads on the usual dull commute!

What’s included with the moped?

To start off with, you obviously get the electric moped itself. However, it comes with a couple of extras to give you the full package and EvoMotion experience. Along with the moped, you’ll receive a charger, that can keep it topped up with plenty of juice to get you where you need to go. This means that there’s no more crowded petrol stations, as well as being great for the planet. The moped also comes with an instruction manual in English, so that you can get to know the scooter and all its bells and whistles inside out before hitting the road.

What are the features?

When buying a new zip-around, the most important thing can be the power. Never fear, the E-3000-RX moped has a 3000W hub motor, that is as powerful as a classic 50cc petrol bike. It’ll get you up to some pretty nippy speeds, but for simply going from A to B this motor will definitely not let you down. Also, the top box is pre-fitted, along with there being a storage compartment under the seat, to keep your things when on the move. More importantly when it comes to getting to your destination, this moped is approved for road use, woohoo! Even better, you don’t pay any road tax or congestion charge, so keep those extra pounds safely in your bank account for a rainy day.

What is the performance like?

So far, this moped seems like an absolute winner – and all things considered, you won’t be using this scooter on the motorways, so don’t expect superbike level power from this quirky guy. However, you’ll find for the classic moped journeys it’s ideal, giving you two days of average use or enough juice for a long adventure.

How big and heavy is it?

When you want something to zip through the city with, the last thing you need is for it to be heavy and cumbersome. That’s why the E-3000-RX is incredibly light at only 100kg, so can be transported easily and won’t weigh you down too much.

How fast does it go?

The E-3000-RX can get you top speeds of 45kph, which is ideal for what this moped is designed for (urban areas and towns). This does depend on how heavy the scooter is, the terrain and temperature, but on an average day in England its unlikely to cause any issues. You can keep the moped going for 50km solid without charging, giving you plenty of juice to take it on multiple little trips or one big adventure. The moped itself charges fully within 8-10 hours, so can be easily charged overnight or before a journey.

What are the other specifications?

Aside from all the great stuff we’ve previously mentioned, the E-3000-RX has a few more extras that make it the ideal moped. Firstly, it comes with 12 inch pneumatic tyres, giving you a smooth and safe journey on a variety of different roads and terrain. To keep you even safer, the E-3000-RX comes with front disc and rear drum brakes, that will give you peace of mind when making your journey. Above the tyres and brakes we have a high-tensile, twin-tube steel frame, that stays sturdy and powerful beneath you, encasing water resistant electrics to keep you going in all weathers. Finally, it also comes with a 72V, 20Ah gel battery, to maintain that excellent speed and power wherever you choose to go.

Is there a warranty?

Indeed there is! There’s a twelve month limited warranty to protect you against anything that may go wrong with the bike without any personal responsibility or involvement. In order to get all the ins and outs of this warranty, you’ll get that all from the manufacturer and/or the moped’s supplier.

EvoKing Electric Scooter Review

evoking electric scooter

Evo Scooters have recently brought out a new range of scooters called the EvoKing. King of the electric scooters?

So what’s new with the EvoKing electric scooter?

Well the design is improved, including the suspension and tyres, and new free wheel hub, plus there’s other new features which we’ll look at later, and overall improved performance.

We’re looking at the 1000W motor in this review.

What’s included when you receive your EvoKing?

The box contains everything you need to get started with your road legal electric scooter. The electric scooter itself. A charger. A tool kit. And an instruction manual.

How easy is it to assemble?

Unfortunately there is SOME assembly required but it’s not difficult. Most people should be fine. You need to add the handle bars, the seat stem and seat, and front light.

(The manual does note that when the electric scooter was made, the handle bars were fitted and then removed for shipping, so you can end up with some marks in this area but they’re covered up by the handlebar bracket when you refit them and the marks then don’t show, so it’s not a big issue).

You then need to install the fuse.

Following this, or whilst you’re assembling, charge up the battery and finally check the tyre pressures are okay.

It’s all detailed in the manual and if you get stuck at all you can always call Evo.

What are the features?

A quick rundown of the features include:

High tensile steel frame
Twist throttle
Easy quick folding
Rear view mirrors
Adjustable height, three point seat-post and large black seat
Visual digital display
A removable seat
A wooden deck
A speedometer
LED lighting
Front and rear enclosed type shock absorbers
Front and rear disc brakes
Brake and suspension parts in eye-catching gold colour
12” pneumatic tyres with car valves
12” alloy wheels
The suspension has been upgraded.
Extra large 30cm diameter tyres.
New free-wheel hub – giving lots of extra power saving.

How is it charged up?

Being electric, it plugs in. Charging time is 4-6 hours so do ensure you allow yourself plenty of time for a full charge before you’re planning on going on any longer trips.

A full charge will take you 25km or 15.5 miles.

This is really not bad is it?!

How fast does it go?

The top speed is 45kph or 28 miles per hour. This is faster on smoother roads, and slower on more bumpy surfaces.

Can you drive it in the dark?

Yes, it has LED lights. I do recommend you wear appropriate clothing so you can be seen at night despite the lights.

What weight must you be to ride it?

It’s really not a child’s electric scooter, so please don’t let your children on it unless they older and very responsible in a safe place.

The maximum weight is 120kg, or 19 stone. The EvoKing measures approximately 130 x 60 x 104cm.

How can it be stored?

Because you can fold the EvoKing it makes storing it really convenient and it only takes a few seconds to fold. I love how it even fits in a car boot so you can take it anywhere and scoot everywhere!

Of course it is quite heavy so you do need to have a decent amount of strength to be lifting it into car boots (or up and down stairs).

What do I need to do to drive it on the public roads?

I wrote a full post on exactly what you need to do to ride this electric scooter on the road. Read UK electric scooter laws.

In a nutshell, you need the certificate of conformity that Evo will provide you with when you purchase your electric scooter. You then need to register it with the DVLA for £55. There is no road tax but you will need moped insurance. Electric scooters are currently classed as mopeds. This could all change one day. You’re also supposed to complete a short road safety test.

It might seem like a lot of hoops and put some people off but it’s not that bad and means you’re set for riding your electric scooter anywhere on any road then.

Safety advice!

As mentioned, this electric scooter is only for adults and very dangerous for children.
Make sure you carefully check all nuts and bolts, and tyre pressures and steering before riding too.
Safety wear and helmets should always be worn.
You should have some knowledge and understanding of mechanics or know somebody who can carry out any repairs.

Overall?

The EvoKing is a great powerful, folding, road legal electric scooter and has some quality upgrades from the original Evo folding electric scooters.

They are a big investment of course, but for the right person electric scooters are so convenient not only for travel and commuting but they’re damn good fun to ride on!!

Where can I get one?

Buy from Evo Scooters for £599.00. (Stock levels are running low).

Electric Scooter Laws in the UK

electric scooters road legal

I’m always getting asked about the electric scooter laws UK. So here is everything I know about them, Please be aware I’m by no means an expert on the electric scooter laws here so this is my little disclaimer. This is just what I’ve found out so far.

Electric scooter laws in the UK

Because electric scooters are powered by a motor (an electrical one), they’re classed by the Department of Transport as mechanically propelled vehicles, and therefore as motor vehicles.

Motor vehicles with less than four wheels, and less than 410kg are then classed as motorcycles. This is defined in Section 185 of the Road Traffic Act 1988. Due to their low speed they then end up in the subcategory of moped.

So officially in UK electric scooter laws, your scooter is classed as a moped.

What does that mean for commuters?

In order for an electric scooter to be legal for road use in the UK, they must comply with construction regulations and they must be officially registered.

Before you buy any electric scooter intended for road use, ensure the seller will provide you with a valid certificate of conformity.

The only electric scooter supplier I’m aware of that supplies road legal electric scooters is Evo Scooters (click here). Evo give you a certificate that you then need to use to register your scooter to use on the roads.



You’ve got your certificate, how do you then register it?

To register your electric scooter to ride it on the roads you then need to visit:

https://www.gov.uk/vehicle-registration/new-registrations

And order yourself a V55/5 form (I know it’s a lot of hoops but worth it!)

Scroll down to “making an application”, then click on “DVLA’s form ordering service”. Then click “start now”.

https://www.gov.uk/dvlaforms

Fill in your details and select the V55/5 form.

You then send in your form along with a cheque for £55 to the DVLA to register your electric scooter.

Currently you don’t pay road tax for an electric scooter.

Can you ride an electric scooter on the pavement in the UK?

Under section 72 of the Highway Act 1835 it’s classed as an offence to ride a vehicle on the pavement.



What about a driving license?

So you’ve got your road legal electric scooter, you know how to register it. But are you even allowed to ride on the roads in the first place? If you’ve not passed your driving test, you do have to be road safe and that means doing some compulsory basic training (or CBT).

https://www.gov.uk/cbt-compulsory-basic-training

If you don’t take your full motorcycle test, you have to repeat your CBT every 2 years.

Prices for a CBT course varies depending on where you live in the UK but the average price seems to be between £100-£120.

In the CBT training you’ll have an eye test, learn some basic road theory and do some practical on road training as well.

Do you need insurance to ride an electric scooter in the UK?

You will need adequate motor insurance according to the government website. As we discussed at the start of this article, electric scooters are classed as mopeds, and you do need ‘adequte motor insurance’ to ride a moped in the UK. Please ensure you do take out some sort of moped insurance when you ride on the UK roads.

https://www.gov.uk/ride-motorcycle-moped/overview

Summary

I hope this short guide to electric scooter laws in the UK has helped you decide whether a road legal electric scooter is the right decision for you.

Once you’re registered with the DVLA, got your insurance and you’ve done your basic road training, you’ve got a lot of freedom to commute on your electric scooter so it is worth the bit of hassle getting set up in my opinion.

Visit Evo Scooters for a road legal electric scooter that supplies a compliance certificate.

If you know of anywhere else in the UK that sells road legal scooters, please do get in touch and let me know.

Road legal Evo 1000W Electric Scooter

Evomotion Electric Moped Scooter

 

Why a Road Legal Electric Scooter is Ideal for Commuters

electric-scooter-wheels

Many of my readers are most interested in using their electric scooters for commuting to work on. Here’s a round up of some of the reasons that this is a great idea, along with a few of the downsides to doing this.

The scooter I have in mind as I write this is the 1000W 48V by EVO (C9316 model). The reason for this is this scooter is a road legal version they’ve recently brought out. It has many excellent features that make it the ideal electric scooter for commuters.

Upfront investment

Although there is an initial upfront investment cost to an electric scooter which kinda sucks, over the long term, your scooter more than pays for itself.

If in the past you’ve owned and driven a car, the savings are massive. Firstly there is no petrol, no insurance and no road tax needed. You do need to pay around £55.00 to register your scooter with the DVLA initally so that you can use it on the roads and street.

Within a few weeks, most people who have switched from a car for commuting to an electric scooter have found the scooter has already paid for itself in money saved.




Charging

Of course an electric scooter uses electric for its power, and inevitably needs charging. How often you will need to charge it depends on how far you travel on it, the terrain (smooth/bumpy roads) and your own weight.

The 1000W EVO road legal scooter can travel for up to 25km (that’s 16 miles) before it needs recharging. Not sure how far you’d be travelling at a time? Get onto Google Maps, and get the directions from your home to your work and it will tell you the number of miles between destinations.

Travelling with your charger is always a good idea in case you need to charge the scooter up whilst at work.

There are lots of people who use their scooters to get to the train on, when they will then get on, fold it, then unfold it and get off the train.

Freedom

I love that you can ride a road legal electric scooter anywhere these days (as far as you can go within charge distance anyway), and not have to bother with all the expenses and ties that go with cars and motor bikes.

Storage

The C9316 EVO 1000W folds up really easily, saving a lot of room when it’s not in use. As I’ve mentioned in previous articles, electric scooters are heavy so although it does fold up nicely, lifting it is not a good idea. You will need somewhere on the ground floor to store it. Unless you fancy carrying 48kg up and down a flight of stairs every day. I certainly wouldn’t be up for this!

Comfort

With an adjustable seat that is also nice to sit on, and a board for your feet, it’s a comfortable, smooth machine to sit on as you commute to work and back. Although there are front and back LED lights so people can see you in the dark, I would still advise you to wear safety gear, a helmet and bright clothing to stand out.

How to register your electric scooter so it’s road legal

Please bear in mind that not all electric scooters are road legal. The 1000W 48V C9316 model by EVO is because of its added features like lights, mirrors and safety features.




You first need a certificate of conformity which you receive when you buy your scooter. You then need to fill in a V55/5 form and submit it along with the certificate and your £55.00 registration fee and you should receive a new registration certificate within six weeks (usually earlier).

Road Legal 1000W EVO Electric Scooter

I’m always getting asked, Steve, are electric scooters road legal?

Well I can now tell you that EVO have brought out a new road legal 12 inch 48v big wheel electric scooter.

This is excellent news for all of us electric scooter fans!

There are a few bits of house keeping you will need to do before you can ride this scooter on the main roads though. All of the registration details can be found at the official EVO UK site here.

EVO will also supply you with the required certificate of conformity included with your purchase.

So without further ado, let’s get onto the good stuff and talk a bit more about this scooter and why it’s ideal for commuters and other scooter enthusiasts.

What’s included?

  • Certificate of conformity for DVLA road registration
  • Electric scooter itself
  • Complete Tool kit
  • Electric Charger
  • Instruction manual
  • Optional EVO branded stickers to apply

How easy is assembly?

There is a little bit of assembly involved when you buy this scooter so bear this in mind when you order. Everything you need to know is covered in the manual. In a nut shell you need to assemble the handle bars, seat and light. The battery will likely need charging and the tires may need pumping.

Features of this 48V road legal electric scooter

There a range of features here to consider so I’m going to write these as a list and then go through some of these in a bit more detail.

  • Brakes – front and rear disc
  • Foldable for storage
  • Adjustable front suspension
  • 12″ pneumatic tires
  • Dual rear shock absorbers
  • Full swing arm with 3″ travel
  • Adjustable seat
  • Front and back LED lights
  • Twist throttle
  • Stand

What about charging?

Charging takes between six to eight hours. This scooter can travel for up to 25km per full charge, depending on the terrain. So basically if you’re travelling over a lot of bumps or up hill, it is going to use more power compared to travelling flat or down hill. This could be something to consider if you have a long journey, especially one that is mostly uphill.

You can always travel with your charger, and plug it in and power it up before a return journey.

What about comfort?

The seat on this electric scooter is high adjustable which gives a wide range of comfort levels for different heights.

I wouldn’t recommend anyone under 16 ride this scooter, but for smaller adults and those that are tall, you can adjust it to your ideal level. The seat is also removable and nice and comfortable. The front suspension is also adjustable.

How fast does it go?

This question is also something I get asked a lot. What’s the fastest electric scooter. It’s all about speed, and at 1000W, this is the fastest. It goes up to 43 kilometres per hour, that’s 27 miles per hour.

It might not sound fast, but for an electric scooter, that is a very quick speed! The 500W and 800W electric scooters don’t go as fast as this. The speed does also depend on the load and terrain, so the heavier you are, the more you’re going to slow it down. Likewise it will go faster over smoother surfaces than bumpy ones, much like any other machine.

Can you drive it in the dark?

Yep, the front and back LED lights allow night time riding so other road users and passersby can see you coming. For added safety, it would be a good idea to wear bright clothing also to really stand out.

What weight must you be to ride?

This 1000W 48V scooter can hold a person up to 120kg. In pounds that’s 265 pounds, or 19 stone. So that should accommodate the vast majority of people pretty well.

What about storage?

The fold up feature is extremely useful and saves a lot of space when the scooter is not in use. It folds up really easily. One thing to bear in mind is that it is a pretty heavy machine at 48kg so please do bear this in mind, you want to be able to push the scooter wherever you are storing it rather than be lifting it anywhere like upstairs.




I’d recommend storage in a garage, or anywhere that is downstairs/ground floor.

What are the hazards and safety features?

This is a powerful machine, and it is not intended for kids whatsoever. So please, don’t buy this for your children! It can be dangerous and it is fast. Be responsible. You should always wear a helmet and safety gear before you ride.

When the stand is down, there is a built in safety feature that prevents the scooter from operating. It’s nice to know that the scooter is not going anywhere when the stand is down.

There are also front and rear disc brakes for added safety, dual rear shock absorbers and of course, rear view mirrors to keep an eye on who’s behind.

Why EVO?

The good thing about EVO scooters is how well built they are. They’re a proven, well-known brand. They’re obviously well-made but they also say themselves that their parts are bought from reputable suppliers, and are not made with cheap parts that can be used on more poorer models.

Where to find out more?

You can invest in your own road legal electric scooter and find out more about it at the official EVO UK supplier, EVO Scooters. I have found dealing with these guys to be very pleasant.

You can email them direct with any questions for a personal reply, and also call them up to ask for more advice which is exactly what you want when you’re investing in an electric scooter. Service is everything!

Chaos 1000W Electric Scooter Review

image-chaos-1000w-electric-scooter

The new 1000W Chaos electric scooter has a better build quality and a higher spec. They come fitted with a 48 volt battery, as opposed to the older Evo 1000W’s previous 36 volt battery. This gives the Chaos 1000W a much bigger distance range and longer charge life.

This is something that previous fans of the 1000w had been requesting the manufacturers improve upon.

Let’s take a closer look at the new and improved Chaos 1000w.

image-chaos-1000w-electric-scooter

What about the engine?

The engine is an electric motor, and uses a 12AH, 48 volt lead acid battery. The charger provided is a 110V to 240V. It has a life span of over 250 cycles before it needs replacing.

What size is the scooter?

This scooter is 48 inches long and 42 inches high. Bear in mind that it also folds up with one move, making it really handy to store away in a corner somewhere.

chaos-electric-scooter-wheels

The net weight of the whole scooter is 40kg. It is not light! This is fine when you’re riding it or wheeling it around. But lifting it up and down steps is far from ideal, if for example you lived in a flat. So I would advise you store yours in a place where it can be wheeled in and out rather than lifted anywhere.

What weight do I need to be to ride?

The Chaos 1000W can hold a person up to 120 kg, that’s 265 pounds, or 19 stone. This weight limit is comfortable for most riders. The recommend age limit is over aged 14. This scooter is not for children and strictly an adult electric scooter.

image-reverse-chaos-electric-scooter

How fast can the 1000W go?

The top speed is 42km/h, which is 26.1 miles per hour. It might not sound it, but this feels pretty fast on a scooter and is the top speed for these types of machine.

Please bear in mind that this model of electric scooter is not technically road legal.

I get asked a lot if you can ride these on main roads. This particular model is for use solely on private roads and areas. Ride them in public at your own risk. I know that some people do, but you could get in trouble if you were out on main roads.

There is now an EVO road legal electric scooter that comes with rear view mirrors and other safety features. These need to be registered with the DVLA. You can read my post about this road legal electric scooter here and visit the supplier to find out what you need to register it.

What else is there to consider?

The frame is made from chromoly steel. This type of steel alloy has an excellent strength to weight ratio, making it an ideal material for these scooters. The brakes are disc brakes, with a double front spring and a single rear spring suspension, plus a twist grip throttle.

Does it come under warranty?

There is a 6 month warranty included for manufacturing defects, and a 3 month warranty for the battery. There is the option to return it if you contact the supplier within 7 days.

I would recommend you buy yours from a dedicated supplier like Funbikes. Why? They have a high “trust pilot” score of 8.1 out of 10 from 38 reviews, there are three dedicated phone lines to use that are not costly 0845 numbers, as well as a live online chat facility.

I have always found them to be helpful and friendly. The only down side is that delivery is expensive. The cheapest option is £19.95. I would prefer that delivery costs be built into the price of the scooter so that you know exactly what you’re paying but this is just my personal preference.

EVO 1000W Sport Powerboard Electric Scooter – Big Wheel

Evo Big Wheel Electric Scooter for Adults

With electric scooters for adults becoming more and more popular these days it might take you some time to find the perfect one for your needs.

If you start by looking at the EVO Powerboard range from Puzey Design you will see that you can find a great looking machine with a lot of useful features. The 1000W Big Wheel model is a great place to start looking if power and sporty looks are among your list of priorities.

What you need to know

The EVO 1000 big wheel model gives a lot of power to the rider using it.

In fact, you can go up to a maximum of 42 km/h (26 mph) in this model if you push it to the limit. It is the highest speed you can get up to in any of the EVO Powerboard range, having taken over from the older 800w model in this respect.

This power comes from the 3 batteries on it which add up to 1000w and will have you racing along for around 10 miles or so before you need to charge them up again using the recharger which comes with it.

The batteries should last you for more than 250 recharge cycles in total. Among the stand out features of this model are the giant 10 inch sporty alloy wheels. These fantastic looking wheels come complete with dual sport on/off road tyres too.

The maximum load for this scooter is 265 pounds, which is around 120 kilos.




Pros

Apart from the speed and the looks, there are also some very nice practical touches to look at here.

For example, it comes with a clever one touch storage system which lets you fold it down to a much smaller size with just the one touch. This makes it ideal for a number of uses, such as riding it to work and then storing it in the office or getting the train and stowing it away while you travel.

The fact that it is only weighs 40 kilos means that storing it shouldn’t be too much of a hassle for most of us either. The vehicle also has an impressive suspension, with a full 3 inches of travel on the swing arm type suspension giving a comfortable ride.

The off road tyres are also going to be extremely useful for anyone who enjoy a bit of adventurous riding, although for standard inner city travelling there is no real benefit to be had from them other than the fact that they look so good.

If you are worried about the battery life being a bit short for your needs and lifestyle then the economy mode button could come in handy, as it helps you make the juice last that bit longer.

Evo Big Wheel Electric Scooter

Cons

The relatively modest battery life and the fairly long battery charging time of 4 to 8 hours means that you will need to be relatively well organised in order to not find yourself left without the use of scooter now and then.

If you get carried away and use it a lot during the day then you will need to stay alert enough to get it back up to the fully charged status for your new bout of riding.

Everything else is pretty much as good as you would expect to find on any electric scooter for adults and if you are looking at different models you are likely to rate this as being one of the best around, if not the very best.

Who would want this electric scooter?

This is an electric scooter which will have a pretty wide ranging appeal for all adults.

For instance, an office worker who wants to make their commute to work a bit more environmentally friendly and a lot more fun might be tempted to give this mode of transport a try.

As long as the daily trip isn’t too far and the owner gets those batteries recharged on a regular basis this could make commuting much more enjoyable than ever before!

The fact that this model has a lot of power, a high top speed and those chunky, sporty wheels means that adventurous types who want to get away from the city and feel the wind in their hair could also be possible purchasers.

Also, the fact that it is comparatively light and easy to store means that it is ideal for taking in the car or on the train on a day out.

It’s an electric scooter which has been designed for enjoyment by adults of all ages and this shows in the both the look of it and the functions which have been added to it.

Who is this electric scooter not for?

This kind of electric scooter is sure to draw plenty of looks from passersby and car drivers as you power along the streets.

If you don’t want to attract attention to yourself then this isn’t the vehicle to do it with. Unless you are planning on only using it on quiet streets or away from the city then you might find that it causes just too much of a stir when you use it.

Anyone who is looking for a way to get around because of some sort of physical problem should also be sure that the weight and size of the EVO 1000w Powerboard Big Wheel isn’t going to cause them a problem, as there are smaller, lighter and less powerful alternatives on the market.

Apart from that, it has a design and a range of functions which should appeal to most adults.

The Evo 1000W Powerboard Electric Scooter is a very powerful scooter for adults with one of the strongest motors on the market today. It feature a high tensile steel frame that is both light and durable and a paint job that will make most adults feel slightly more cool on their scooter.

What’s in the box?

The 42 Kilo box will arrive at your door containing a ‘some assembly required’ scooter, 3 battery pack and 110V-240V charger. You will have to read the instruction manual to put together the tires, the handlebars and the seat but overall, it is an easy task that shouldn’t take more than a few minutes.

How it works & product features

With 10” Aluminium mag wheels and oversized tyres, the Evo looks cool right from the start.

The flashy paint job covers a durable steel frame that while heavy, can support a great deal of weight. The motor is battery powered with motor cross style handlebars, chain system and front and rear disc brakes. You can go up to 45 km per hour on this bike which makes it one of the fastest scooters in its range.




Advantages of this electric scooter

The Evo 1000 watt is a very large scooter that is very suitable for larger adults.

It can be used to commute to and from work within a 20 km range and can go at speeds of up to 45 km depending on the terrain and the weight of the driver.

This means that it can be used as a green way to drive to work and can save you on parking for short trips to town.

The large wheels make it easier to go over small bumps in the road while the long life batteries mean that you won’t be stuck somewhere with batteries that won’t recharge.

The steel frame is extremely sturdy and the most you will ever have to worry about is getting a flat or scratching the pristine paint job. With 1000 watts of power, the Evo can also easily handle most hills which is more than most scooters can say.

Disadvantages of this electric scooter

The Evo is extremely heavy. When you have to fold it up and put it away or potentially pick it up and take it up stairs (if you live in a flat without storage) it could be difficult, especially if you have back problems.

What other reviewers say

“i bought these two scooters for Christmas presents because we hired them when on holiday to get around.
they can easily fold down and taken in the car which is great too. and they are built well to with stand a bit of punishment.”

I agree with this reviewer. They are easy to fold and take about in the car.

Two reviewers commented that these scooters can only be used on private land. One saying that even though they’re supposed to be used on private land, they’d still go everywhere on it.

“if you have to use private land for theis scooters I will still go every where on it”

This next reviewer left an unnecessary 1 star review. It’s a real shame because it’s not about the scooter, it’s their own problem and it could put other people off this awesome scooter if they look at the reviews and see 1 star.

“we have a motorhome and was looking for electric bikes on your website and spotted the evo electric scooter it looked ideal small and foldup we could use it when parked on sites in the uk and france to go to the local villages and shops the review said hired two on holiday great fun to get around ideal I thought .I order one from your website it arrived I unboxed it and took it for a short ride around my local streets great I thought andordered a second one ,only after looking at other websites they stated it could only be used on private land which is of no use to me I email direc2u and they replied saying they do a road legal scooter .as I have unboxed it and ridden it it can not be returned I am a pensioner and have now lost £400 with a scooter I can not use”

Why do people leave negative reviews that are not about the product?

This next review doesn’t make a lot of sense and I’d be interested to find out a bit more about the problem. It is very vague. Is it charged properly? Have they done anything about it?

“Got this scooter and it keeps stoping goes good when working proper not that happy with it.would not buy again”

Another good one.

“Seems to be built well,battery lasts well.”

“This scooter is great for shorter trips round town or is ideal for what I brought it for which is to get around the caravan/camp site whist on holiday.it is a real head turner and conversation starter! The only negative thing I can say about this scooter is that it is quite heavy, but saying that it is very well put together and even has disc brake and good suspension so you don’t feel the bumps, I really recommend this product but its not a toy!”

Bang on! It is heavy I would agree with this but the good points more than make up for it.

“This is the future, when we get rid of cars, “I’m the man” as one guy put it. Absolutely magnificent, every head turns.And I even got it on the bus, with no problem, “That”s a nice bike.” is everyone’s reaction, and I do enjoy everybody smiling at me when I’m using it on the pavement. BUY ONE!”

Haha I love this review. They are the future. Indeed.

“I’m so happy with this purchase! It’s incredibly powerful and hasn’t let me down once after riding it throughout Scotland, England and France. I’ve finally worn out my first set of tyres and took it to the company to replace the tyres with off-road ones (I tend to put this thing though its paces!) which they were happy to do, as I’m only about twenty miles from their warehouse.”

Excellent review also.

My verdict

“Overall the Evo 1000W Powerboard Electric scooter is a top of the range, high quality scooter that almost any adult can use to go anywhere!”
