Uberscoot 1000W Electric Scooter Review
Since the Evo Powerboard Uberscoot 1000W electric scooter was superseded by the more powerful model, its price came down a bit. This is why we decided to give it a spin.
If you need something to help you get around easily and avoid using your car for those short rounds, you should most definitely buy an electric scooter. Be advised that these electric scooters are powered by a battery and you can't kick-push them like the regular ones.
Uberscoot 1000W Electric Scooter
The first thing that you will notice is that this is definitely not a toy but a serious utility vehicle. Some people even call it the best electric scooter for adults.
The Uberscoot can be folded which is very convenient if you need to put it the trunk or carry it on a train. It’s a bit heavy so it is not very pleasant to carry it for the longer distances. We hope that there will be no need for such a thing.
This adult electric scooter features 10″ wheels and you can choose between all terrain tires or typical concrete ones. The removable seat makes it very easy to fold it for storage and transport.
The motor itself runs on 1000-watt of power and it’s powered by 3 standard 12-volt batteries (36 volts total).
The wheels are made of an alloy that is keeping the lightweight while remaining durable. The fork is made of high-quality light aluminum. Both are made to last for a very long time.
Depending on the surface you are riding on this scooter can reach up to 30 mph, but it will not reach this speed if you go uphill because it doesn’t have the gearbox or the torque like the motorbikes have.
The Uberscoot 1000W is very comfortable to ride because of the swinging arm suspension. This kind of suspension can be found on an expensive mountain bikes or motorbikes.
The scooter will definitely stop when you hit the brake while traveling at speed thanks to the disk brakes. These are much more efficient than the drum brakes or the bicycle type of breaks.
It’s also equipped with the LED lights that will allow you to ride your scooter at any time, no matter if it’s day or night.
- Voltage: 36 VDC
- Current: 35.6 A
- Output power: 1000 W
- Motor speed: 3000 RPM
- Weight: 88 pounds
- Load: 264 pounds
Building the scooter
The scooter will come in a very nicely packed box with everything safely secured and protected. When you open the box you will find next components:
- Seat mount
- The seat
- Wheel protector
- The frame
- LED light
- The batteries
- Drive gear (chain and brakes)
- Operating manual
We would recommend that you construct your scooter when you have a couple hours of free time so you don’t have to rush it and you have enough time to do a good job.
It's really very easy to do this. Most of the parts just clip on. The only thing that is a bit difficult to do is adjusting the breaks. It’s important that you adjust them to suit your needs. So they have to feel right and to stop the scooter properly.
The scooter does come with the full instructions for building so you don’t have to worry about it, but I found it very simple to construct and I didn’t even need the instructions.
If you are planning to take your scooter abroad there are some adapters in the box that will allow you to charge it in different countries.
The battery is not pre-charged and it is required to charge it for 12 hours before you use it. My personal advice is to put the batteries on the charger as soon as you receive the package so that you can use the scooter right away when you build it.
This scooter is designed to be light and therefore the most of the parts are made of aluminum. The batteries are the heaviest component. There is some amount of steel in the frame to give it durability.
It feels really solid when you're riding it which I personally think is very good.
The battery will give you around 10 miles per charge. It’s not bad for local runs or to ride from train to your office.
Handlebars, brakes, and wheels
The scooter is basically designed to ride it while sitting on the seat. The handle bar is high enough and you will have no problem with the back. But if you are 6 feet high it might be a little bit uncomfortable.
The tires will last for over a year depending on how much you use them. They have a great grip and can be compared to the tires on the cars or mountain bikes.
High-quality disk brakes won’t let you down and if the sharp stop is needed they will deliver.
On the right handlebar, you will find the throttle that has two modes. Turbo mode will provide you with full power and the regular one is better for smooth cruising.
When you ride the scooter you are very exposed so it is not recommended to use it on the busy roads and fast traffic. The helmet is highly recommended, especially if the child is riding it.
Always be safe when riding this little electric scooter. This is not a toy, it’s more like a small mini motorbike.
- Fantastic urban transport
- It can achieve excellent speed
- Very durable and high-quality
- Very compact when folded and easy to store or transport
- Best electric scooter you can get for the money
- It can climb hills with no problem
- A bit too heavy to carry it for a longer distance
- Can be uncomfortable for very tall people
In my opinion, this is one of the best electric scooter for adults you can get for the money. It is very popular for a good reason. You will get a very high-quality scooter that will never let you down.
It is the ideal commuter for longer distances that can be very easily folded and stored.
So if you are looking for the scooter that will fit both your needs and wallet, this is the best you can get. I highly recommend it.
