What is a Thrill Scooter?

Electric scooters aren’t equally designed because it can be used in many different ways. Some riders need scooters for short drives while others need ones that reach farther distances. Likewise, some electric scooters are created solely for commuting in the city.

A thrill scooter is an electric scooter that is specially designed to withstand the high demands of recreational riders. Most thrill e-scooters have a similar built so you can quickly pick them out from a group of rides. If the e-scooter is huge and hefty, there’s a good chance that it’s a thrill scooter.

While it’s not necessarily an off-road scooter, the hauntingly great experience of riding the Apollo Ghost makes it an excellent thrill scooter nonetheless. It just proves that you don’t need to be on ultra-rough trails to enjoy exhilarating adventures!

The Apollo Ghost is powered by 2 terrific 800W motors that provide it with the strength to reach speeds of 55 kph and climb hills of up to 25 degrees. It even has a swift acceleration of 0 to 25 kph in just 3.1 seconds!

And its brakes? Amazing! The Apollo Ghost didn’t just stop with dual brakes as it features an innovative triple braking system with regenerative brakes. Electric Kicks also stocks the Apollo Ghost with the hydraulic brake versions to really give you the best stopping power you'll experience.

What’s more, you can easily switch motor drives with its convenient Eco/Turbo switch. It even has LED lights in its front, rear, and under the deck (for maximum cool vibes). 

Apollo Pro (52V)

Off-roading asks for heavy demands from electric scooters, and you’ll find that this electric scooter handles that like a pro! The Apollo Pro is powered by 1000W dual motors that allow it to reach speeds of 60 kph and climb over hills of up to 45 degrees. 

But what really takes the cake is its record-breaking acceleration. If you really push it, the Apollo Pro can go from 0 to 25 kph in a short 1.7 seconds! That’s one of the fastest (if not the fastest) accelerations in e-scooters to date.

Another impressive feat that the Apollo Pro finds no problems with achieving is reaching distances as far as 90 km. Plus, this US & Canadian marvel is known for its comfortable & secure ride quality.

This electric scooter features a reliable triple braking system. The Apollo Pro that Electric Kicks stocks features the hydraulic brake versions for maximum stopping power. It also has a fantastic dual spring suspension that keeps you driving smoothly even when you’re on rough, bumpy roads. Its 10-inch pneumatic tyres also helps make riding a more comfortable experience in any terrain.

Mercane MX60

Besides looking like the Terminator with its steel exoskeleton frame, the MX60 provides all the comfort you need with its ultra-broad deck. It can even carry an above-average load of up to 120 kg.

Of course, speed and range on this electric scooter is fantastic as well. You can get a boost up to speeds of 60 kph and go as far as 100 km in a single charge. And the good news? The MX60’s battery is removable and rechargeable from anywhere you are. Talk about convenience!

But what really makes the MX60 such a great ride is its powerful dual motors (switch from single to dual motor drive for a power increase), incredible air shocks (for the best comfort, eating road bumps for breakfast), and sturdy, thick 11-inch air-filled tyres. All of these make it possible for you to enjoy all-terrrain riding to its fullest!

What Makes A Thrill Scooter Different?

Entry-level scooters and commuter scooters have significantly lower specs than most thrill scooters. That’s because there’s a lot more rough-handling that happens when you’re riding recreationally.

Here are a few differences that most electric scooters have from starters and commuters:

Higher Top Speed

When you want to go on exciting adventures, speed is one of the most sought-after specs. Thrill scooters feature higher top speeds than the average commuter scooter which is tempered by the usual speed limits of an area. Simply, commuters are not built to be swift.

Thrill scooters, which are usually used in private property, have no such limits so you can go as fast as you want. Most fast electric scooters start with a top speed of 45 kph and can go all the way up to 100 kph which is four times as fast as the average top speed of a commuter scooter.

Besides top speed, recreational scooters are also known for their wicked acceleration. After all, what’s the point of going at breakneck pace if you can’t pick up the speed? Many electric scooters in this category can probably reach 25 kph in less than 2 seconds!

Longer Range

The next feature that many riders look for is a longer range. When you’re out riding the trails, you wouldn’t want to lose battery in the middle and get stranded. A long-distance range allows you to ride your electric scooter worry-free because you know you’d have enough juice to get back home.

Plus, a higher maximum range means you can go farther than you’ve ever done before. A 45-km range is already great (for premium commuters and lower thrill scooters) but some of these electric scooters can go as far as 150 km. That’s absurdly impressive for a stand-up, two-wheel ride!

More Powerful Motor & Battery

It comes as no surprise that these fast electric scooters have more powerful motors and higher-capacity batteries. With speeds and ranges that they have, they’ll need it. 

Though some thrill scooters can cope with a high-wattage single motor, many of the top-tier ones feature dual motors to really provide you with top-notch, reliable performance.

Heavier Weight & Less Portable

The expectation with recreational riding is that you’d want to go off-road at some point. So more durable materials are required to build your thrill scooter. Add to that bigger motors and batteries, and you’ll see a significant increase in the scooter’s weight (compared to typical commuter scooters).

Many thrill scooters will weigh more 25 kg (some will even weigh almost 50 kg), so they’re definitely not built to be the most portable. But don’t worry. 

Many thrill scooters are still liftable and foldable. You can put them inside your car’s trunk with just a bit of effort. But they won’t be the easiest to bring along in public transportation.

More Durable Frame & Design

The frame and materials used for a thrill scooter is typically sturdier than your average electric scooter because it’s exposed to rougher treatment. Dirt paths and rough trails are bumpier, stone-filled, and decidedly less developed than paved roads. 

Plus, trails have more hills and turns than the common city streets so scooter handling should both be first-rate and tough if you want to remain safe during your rides. 

This is why you will find that thrill scooters have bigger and more terrain-versatile tyres as well as complex suspension and/or additional shock absorbers. Sometimes even lighting systems on these scooters come with brighter and higher features.

Brakes, of course, are also an important feature that will keep you ultra-safe. Many thrill scooters have dual brakes for optimum stopping power. Some even have an additional electronic brake. 

Just remember that even if the thrill scooter is well-built, it's better to get e-scooter accessories like helmets, knee pads, and elbow pads to keep you as safe as possible while riding.

Suffice to say, when it comes to specifications, thrill scooters will almost always have higher ones than the average electric scooter. Its drawback is that it is significantly heavier and absolutely not compact. 

Plus, the heftier build and features of thrill scooters makes it more expensive than starters and commuters. But if you’re a bonafide speedster, nothing will stop you from getting your own recreational thrill scooter for your weekend escapades!
