Features of Kaabo Mantis Electric Scooter

This Mantis electric scooter is dedicated for adult power users who are looking for a comfortable and reliable ride. It comes in two choices of batteries but always in dual-motor mode.

  • 2000W Dual Motor

Kaabo Mantis electric scooter is equipped with two brushless and powerful 1000W motors. These motors deliver great acceleration so that you can climb more than 35% inclines easily. You can also use only one motor or both at once at your will. Besides, if you choose to ride in a single mode of the motor, then you can enjoy your ride more than 45 miles. This mode also conserves your battery.  

On the other hand, if you switch the scooter on a dual-motor mode, then it will deliver extra acceleration and provide more than 40 mph speed. The conversion of the motor modes is simple and quick due to the switch button located near to the cockpit.

  • 60V 17.5Ah Battery

An incredible range of the battery makes the Kaabo Mantis electric scooter the most popular on the market. The base of this electric scooter is equipped with an FST Li-ion 17.5Ah 60V battery. Furthermore, the battery is rechargeable in 10 to 12 hours to charge with standard charger.

If you want to preserve your battery for a longer period, then it is recommended to ride it on a single motor mode. In this mode, you will get more than 45 miles. Apart from that, if you want strong acceleration, you must switch its dual-motor option. However, the dual-motor mode consumes more battery, and you will enjoy excellent acceleration for a short period.

  • Acceleration / Speed

In terms of speed and acceleration, the Kaabo Mantis is an absolute monster. A combination of 25 Amp controller and dual electric 1000W motors boost this scooter to 15 mph approximately in 2.5 seconds. You can even attain 20 mph in just about 3.9 seconds, and 30 mph in around 7.7 seconds. After 25mph, it will get stable, but still delivers the top speed of 40 mph.

Besides, the motors are very powerful, so you can spin both wheels readily at full throttle. But, the response of the throttle is slightly slow. It means that it takes a little bit of time between activating the motors and squeezing the control of the throttle. If you are newer to use, then it is not an issue for you, but if you are already using any high-end electric scooter, then it is a lag for you.

  • Brake System

One more impressive feature is the braking system of the Kaabo Mantis electric scooter. It is featured with dual disc brakes, which will assist you in managing high speed with comfort. These brakes are hydraulic (semi hydraulic on the Base version and full hydraulic on the PRO version) that are more expensive as compared to other mechanical brakes. Furthermore, it shows better performance in every aspect. These are also very efficient, so there is no need to apply much pressure.

Apart from that, the dual disc hydraulic brakes give you full controls during riding on all types of terrains. A combination of display and throttle allow you to configure cruise control, regenerative strength of brakes, and speed limit. Thus, it is the most popular electric scooter that has a fairly strong braking system.

  • Spring arms suspensions

Another prominent feature of the Kaabo Mantis electric scooter is the suspension. It is equipped with the dual coil-spring suspension system. This system will give you a special feel resembling that you are hovering over the ground. Also, you will experience an insanely smooth ride even on the worst conditions of the road. Thus, you can say that the spring suspension makes it the best scooter for all types of terrains.  

It is a very capable scooter for climbing hills such as sunny and rainy days. Furthermore, this scooter is also suitable for riding on dirt, grass, gravel, and more terrains. Apart from that, this Kaabo scooter can easily handle adults more than 265 lbs with ease. Therefore, it is not only for kids, but adults can also explore multiple areas on all types of terrains. The spring suspensions are placed on both rear and front of the scooter.

  • Tires / Wheels

This electric scooter is equipped with air pneumatic tires along with rounded profiles. The diameters of the tires are 10-inch x 2.3-inch that delivers a quality ride on all types of ground. Due to these large-sized tires, you can fully control your scooter. Additionally, they keep your scooter pinned and precise to the pitch when cornering. These are the best racing tires, so this scooter will give you a unique riding experience. 

These air tires deliver smoother feeling and improved suspension as compared to solid tires. And they come with great traction. The wheels of the Mantis scooter are highly durable, so there is no need to replace them shortly.

Furthermore, there is a contact patch between the road and the tire that makes your each turns a thriller. Also, the rounded profile of the tires makes them anti-slip while providing great stability on all terrains.

  • Portability

The Kaabo Mantis scooter is sizeable and heavy even when it is folded. But, the locking stem makes the maneuverability easy for infrequent lifting. A tremendously solid mechanism of folding allows you to fold your scooter together so that you fit it into your trunk.

Plenty of electric scooters come with a locking system, but they wobble during riding. So, the Kaabo Mantis scooter comes with a rock-solid dual locking system. Additionally, you don’t need any kind of adjustments for locking it; you just have to use its clamping mechanism.

  • Cockpit / Handlebar

It comes with a bicycle-style wide handlebar with a trigger-style throttle and a standard cockpit. It is equipped with control buttons. So, you can use those buttons for controlling the modes of motor and power. Let me remind you, this model has two motor single and dual modes and two power eco and turbo modes.

The LCD display shows you some useful information and you can easily read the information in sunlight. You can also customize multiple settings by using the button. Plus, the grip of the handlebar is made with top-quality foam that makes it very comfortable.     

  • LED Lights

LED lights are placed on the side of the deck, rear, and front of the Mantis electric scooter. These lights are specifically bright, but they aren’t mounted in any high position. If you want to ride at night, then you need more lighting systems for superior visibility. The deck lights are white, and the rear lights are red.  

  • Deck

The deck of the Kaabo Mantis electric scooter comes with a 20.25-inch x 8.25-inch dimension that provides a 6-inch of ground clearance. In addition to that, the deck is coated with an emblemized grippy rubber mat. This mat gives excellent traction, especially in dry and wet conditions. The height from deck to handlebar is just about 37-inch. Furthermore, your feet will also plant on the deck when you are riding on rough and solid terrain.

Differences between the Kaabo Mantis Electric Scooter Base & Pro Versions

So, the Pro model (check price here) delivers the maximum controller and torque. The Pro electric scooter has a more powerful battery as compared to the Base model.

Comparison Kaabo Mantis vs Zero 10X

The Zero 10X electric scooter is a better option for adults as compared to the Kaabo Mantis in terms of the load capacity. The Zero 10X is built with heavy-duty materials, so it can hold approximately 330 lbs weight. However, the Mantis scooter can only bear 265 lbs of weight.

If you are looking for a lightweight scooter, then the Kaabo Mantis electric scooter is a good option for you. The weight of the Mantis scooter is 65 lbs, and the Zero 10X weighs approximately 80 lbs. Nevertheless, both are foldable and portable, so you can conveniently carry it.     

Additionally, the Zero 10X can cover an excellent range of 35 miles to 60 miles, so you can use it for exploring the urban areas and more places conveniently. But, The Kaabo Mantis scooters are suitable when you have to travel about 40 miles for an adventure.

These electric scooters are equipped with powerful batteries. The Kaabo Mantis scooter has an FST Li-ion 17.AH, 60V and the Zero 10X has a Samsung 21AH 60V. Consequently, the Zero 10X has the most powerful battery that can also cover a better range with maximum speed. And, the Kaabo Mantis has a little bit less powered battery, so you have to charge after covering multiple miles.         

To conclude our Kaabo Mantis vs Zero 10X comparaison we can tell that the Mantis e-scooter is equipped with a dual-disc hydraulic brakes system (in Pro version). Although the Zero 10x e-scooter comes with a hydraulic disc brake system, these are not as effective as the Mantis disc brakes.

On the same off road electric scooter range you can also look into the Apollo Pro which is manufactured in the same factory than the Zero 10X.
