Important features to look for when buying an off-road electric scooter

The thrill of flying through the air and landing a two-metre jump on a dirt track - or successfully whipping through some dicey deep mud - is a feeling that's hard to beat. If this is a high you're chasing, then there are a few features that you should consider before investing in off road electric scooters.

Firstly, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that off-roading can be dangerous. We've all heard the horror stories about people who have ridden unprepared and suffered dire consequences. For this reason, you should be looking primarily at the safety features of the off road electric scooter. Things like high quality dual ABS brakes, solid suspension and thick tyres. Arguably the braking system is the most important feature to consider when buying an off-road electric scooter. Often, off road electric scooter riders can find themselves in situations where they need to brake suddenly so the braking system has to be able to handle this.

If you've all set safety-wise - which includes wearing the correct protective gear - you can then consider the fun stuff - like how fast the electric scooter can go. Some electric scooters are merely devices to get from one spot to another - these kinds of electric scooters may only have a max speed of 20km per hour. However, if you're ready to play with the big boy toys, you can find off road electric scooters that hit upwards of 100km her hour. This kind of off road electric scooter is for experienced riders who are looking to hit terrains at white knuckle-inducing speeds. You can check out our guide on the fastest electric scooters of 2021 here.

Another sought-after feature that passionate off road electric scooter riders value is the climbing capabilities of the vehicle. Climbing capabilities are judged at a percentage or degree. A slope can be measured in either degree or percentage - so the measurement is literal - it determines what degree or percentage incline or hill that the scooter can capably climb.

There's little more frustrating than speeding around some rugged terrain only to have your adrenaline rush killed when your scooter doesn't have enough power to quickly climb a hill. A scooter's climbing capabilities are mainly determined by the power behind the vehicle. Off road electric scooters with bigger motors that have a higher wattage have the ability to climb an incline better, without losing power.

Below is a brief table that examines each of the eight scooters and their brakes, climbing capabilities and speed.
