First scooter delivered had poor quality control, including scratches and charger would not charge after first charge. Replacement was provided very quickly by Chris. Second Mantis 8 was better quality but scratches easily around stem folding mechanism. Also the rear tyre was flat which I didn’t work out until covering a few Km. This was a potential safety risk. Other then this poor initial experience with the scooter, the scooter itself is so much fun. Chris at electric kicks also provided great support.
The guys electric kicks were awesome!
