And it doesn’t hurt that the Kaabo Skywalker series offers amazing speed and acceleration as well. The Skywalker can go up to speeds of 38 kph (Skywalker 8S) up to a lightning-quick 45 kph (Skywalker 10H). Traveling across busy streets and weaving through traffic is a piece of cake because this series can reach 24 kph in under 4 seconds! 

Reliably Safe & Smooth

Another great thing about the Kaabo Skywalker series is its remarkable brakes. This scooter series features different braking systems that range from rear disc brakes to dual disc and electric braking systems.

Suffice to say, the braking performance that the Skywalker scooters can give is one of the best in the industry today. A few of the Skywalker models can even give you an excellent 24 kph braking distance of only 2.8 meters.

Aside from its strong braking capabilities, you’ll be able to enjoy smooth rides because of its amazing front and rear suspension. Well-balanced and able to eat up bumps as a snack, the suspension that Kaabo is well-known for works at its finest in these electric scooters.

Aesthetically Handsome & Sturdy

You know you’re going to get excellent value for your money just by looking at a Skywalker model. Its aluminum frame just makes it look so sturdy and handsome. Like other Kaabo scooters, the Skywalker series offers you incredible ride quality not just through its features but also because of its sturdy build. 

But aside from its aesthetic, the Kaabo Skywalker series also features powerful motors (500W up to 800W) and incredible batteries (48V 13Ah to 48V 15.6 Ah) so you know you can always rely on these models for amazing rides.

Quick & Convenient Folding

The Kaabo Skywalker series are at heavier end of the commuter scooters in the market today, and while not being as portable as other e-scooters it easily makes up in power, acceleration and shock absorption. The Skywalker 8s is also commonly known as the "most powerful commuter scooter" on the market.

One of the defining features of the Skywalker models their convenient folding system. Just press on a lever and it folds easily. The Skywalker series are one of the few electric scooters on the market today to feature adjustable handlebar height, allowing comfortable rides what ever height you are.


Quality Above All Else

Aside from the usual capabilities that most riders love, the Kaabo Skywalker e-scooters also have other features that make riding a much more exhilarating and satisfying experience. For one, it has a pleasant-sounding horn which is loud but not enough to startle pedestrians.

With this feature, your riding experience becomes a whole lot easier and enjoyable!
