2019 HORIZON - Practical Commuter Scooter - Great Value
WOLF WARRIOR 11 - Maximum Speed & Acceleration, Off Road
I love my Mantis! Power, range and a smooth ride. This one’s got it all! There are so many customization options: braking regen, acceleration, single or dual motor, top speed, etc. The deck lights make me very visible at night. And Peter provides top level customer service. All around, I couldn’t be happier with my Mantis Pro!
I've been casually shopping for an inexpensive scooter, but I could not find anything in between the disposable cheap ones at wal-mart and the quality ones north of $500. This Fluid scooter is right for the first time buyer. I'm a big guy (220lbs), and I occasionally rent a Bird/Lime around town. If I add it up over the past year, I've already paid for a Fluid but didn't get to keep the scooter. So I pulled the trigger on Monday, and the box arrived on Friday.
Set up was really easy. You need to screw in the handle bars, charge it a bit, and you are on your way. Probably 10 minutes from box to on the road.
Immediate reaction: Really smart design for the throttle. Once you hold it down for a few second, it locks in cruise control and you do not need to keep it pressed. Using the brake turns off the throttle. Very smart, unlike the rental scooters.
On flat ground, the scooter keeps up a good pace, getting to 30 kph (18 mph). I have not figured out if I can change the screen from kph to mph yet . The scooter stops accelerating at 30.
Charging was 2 hours after the first full ride. The scooter is built for flat roads, and does not like hills. That really affects the speed and battery life. This is truly designed for flat roads.
The design is clean, with nice wood finish. More attractive than rentals. The folding aspect is a nice touch, and was easy to pick up and carry into my office.
Ordered on Tuesday, arrived today (Thursday). Super-easy to inbox and get going. Taken it out for a first ride and all good so far. Really well put together - no rattles or shakes. Smooth ride. Smooth acceleration. I don’t mind the kph speed and, unlike the comment in the vid, I quite like the cruise control (maybe I’m just lazy). Early days but highly recommend this scooter and Fluidfreeride!
I waited a long time between pre-order and the arrival of this awesome scooter but it was well worth the wait. It meets or exceeds all standards and specs it lays out on FFRs website, it gets me where I need to be in almost the same amount of time as my car, and it's a blast to ride. If I had one negative to speak to, it's that the front fork is a little squeaky. You should buy this one if you're on the fence. Value greatly exceeds price here.
I did a *lot* of research around the sub-$1000 range of scooters after owning an entry level scooter of another brand. The Horizon gives me the range that I need to make my 14 mile round trip at speeds that get me there in half the time. In particular, I have a large but fairly gentle slope up on the inbound trip and the Horizon handles it easily. Dual suspension keeps the ride smooth and controlled, and the large handlebars give me confidence on the road. Low center of gravity keeps things stable at speed, which the Horizon has plenty of.
Small nitpicks: the kickstand is a hair short, and it feels tippy when resting on it. Front headlight is good for making people see you in low-light, but not enough to ride by. Such minor things on such a fantastic piece of hardware are hardly worth mentioning. If you want to beef up your scooting experience beyond base level, this is the step up you need.
I am 5'11 and 190lb and this scooter is absolutely amazing. I ride it to work every day and it is unbelievable. Im saving on gas and parking plus getting to work quicker than I would have with my car. plus on the weekends Ill have my friends come over and ride it. Im wanting to get another one so that me and my wife can go riding around together. what you are buying is a solid scooter. the handle bars are sturdy and you dont have to worry about it shaking like i have with my other scooter. On top of that the lights are incredibly bright and great at night to make sure youre safe. definitely would recommend buying. lastly the peter with fluidfreeride has been great with communication and you are not left alone after you buy it.
This is my second electric scooter and the first from Fluid. My first (TurboAnt) was a short lived experience that I returned within a week after experiencing strange problems -- stuck throttle, mysterious beeping and indiscriminate power cutoffs -- until ultimately the throttle spring broke. Though this is an early review (only a few rides so far), this is a true upgrade. Granted I paid a few hundred more for the increase speed, it is clearly a far superior product. Though the 35 mph speed isn't attainable for my 200 lb frame, I do get 23 mph which is adequate for this old man. Granted this is a small sample size and time will tell as far as durability and the probable service issues I may need, I give it two thumbs up.
This Wolf Warrior is the best bang for the buck when compared to other scooters in it's league. Unbeatable power, great range, great suspension, good lights and horn. It's hard to find any complaints about it. I have a minor issue with the back tire needing air but can't seem to find any leaks. Peter at fluidfreeride was great to work with.
I seriously considered a Dualtron Thunder, however I went with the Kaabo Wolf Warrior for the following reasons:
- Same Minimotors electric motors and EY3 display/throttle control and motor controllers
- Same or better range and quality LG batteries
- Same or better top speed and acceleration
- Built-in rear grab handle/rack
- Beefy design including peripheral rail
- Arguably better suspension
- Unquestionably better front hinge and lockup
- Included both off-road and street tires as well as two chargers at the time I bought it
- Powerful built-in headlights
- Motorcycle/car-sized built-in horn
- In my opinion, tougher looking and less garish/gaudy than Dualtron (especially lighting)
- Almost a thousand dollars cheaper!
This scooter is really impressive. I have taken it to 50mph and for my commute to work (9.5 miles each way) up and down some very serious hills (I live on the side of a mountain) there is absolutely no difference in the time it takes to travel compared to my full-size internal combustion engine adventure motorcycle (the speed limit on most side streets is 35-40 mph). I still have better than 65% range at the end of the day in dual-motor/turbo and after having tackled some significant hill climbs. This is real-world electric transportation. Beyond that, it's enormously fun and thrilling to ride and gets a lot of attention.
I think with this and the Mantis, Kaabo is really making impressive inroads into the electric scooter market, and I'm quite impressed with the sturdiness and build quality. Fluid Freedride was excellent to deal with throughout the entire transaction, and they do respond to e-mailed inquiries quickly.
I received my eagerly awaited Mantis in late September. After having ridden a Gotrax GLX for a few months I was amazed by the performance and comfort of the Mantis. Of course the price difference is significant, the Mantis has been worth it. The dual suspension allows the scooter to eat up the bumps and even allows me to make a modest hops off curbs. I haven't had a chance to exhaust the battery yet, but I've ridden it for miles without having to worry whether or not I'd make it home. It is heavy for sure, but that is offset by it capabilities, handling on the move, speed and ability to go a long distance. I started out in gear 1, but now just leave it in gear 3 and control my speed easily with the throttle. The dual motors? They make going up inclines a cinch, especially considering my 215lb bulk. I typically leave it in 1 motor mode until I need the extra power for inclines/hills or off-road. My only complain thus far are the plastic nut protectors on either side of each wheel when tend to fall off when passing thru and bumping the frame on a doorway. With the Gotrax, Chuck, the dog could easily outpace me. However with the Mantis he can't quite keep up when I crank it up a bit. While the scooter can go fast I typically do not run it at more than 20mph. I cannot speak to the quality of support at this time since I have not yet had to contact them with any issues.

I was so excited to get my new Mantis scooter. Unfortunately when I received it it came with a defective battery. Fluid Freeride was able to get me a replacement within a few days. That was really awesome service. I have now used the scooter for my daily commute to the train and to the office in SF for about a week now. I am blown away with the power and comfort of the Mantis. I also have the WideWheel and really like it. But the Mantis is in a completely different class. I recommend this scooter for anyone who doesn’t mind the size and weight of it. Thank you Peter and Adam at Fluid Freeride for the excellent service.
Hands down the best scooter in this class, especially at this price point. They knocked it out of the park with it's incredible balance of solid build but not overly cumbersome and is comparatively light weight and slim form factor. The suspension makes this scooter ride like butter. I got the pro version, and I recommend you go through all the settings before you ride, mine came all misconfigured (set to 40v, kick start off etc) The scooter is fast, extremely fast. The dangerous part is it feels so steady at high speed you start to get too comfortable. Use responsibility, the speed can be very useful, but when used irresponsibly can lead to fatal consequences. Use a full faced helmet, gloves and a motorcycle jacket if you plan to go full speed all the time. The breaks are incredibly strong, so strong infact I was going 41mph I needed to make an emergency stop, didn't get used to the front break being where the rear normally is and hit it too hard scooter stoped on a dime but I went flying forward and hit the ground hard. Now I got a fractured elbow but would have been much worse if I didn't have all my gear on. Definitely humbling experience and I will definitely be smarter about the speed. Accident aside I love, love, love this scooter. I just recommend taking it easy while you get used to it, and practice breaking!
1st I am a 56 year old adrenaline junky I was Airborne in the servicei downhill mountain bike and percision rifle shoot and the wolf is the most incredible thing I've ever had to play with .This thing is a beast sooooo fast and so beefy, routinely pass cars with ease and the battery did last forever, unfortunately it was defective but enter Peter and the crew at Fluidfreeride who with no questions asked and at light speed sent me a new one . I never write reviews but this scooter gave me no choice if you want the toughest fastest scooter you can buy backed by world class support then this is the scooter for you
Well done guys
Awesome experience with some warranty parts and advice from the FFR Team, 24 hour response, very willing to help. I commute about 3 total miles in Seattle on my Mercane WW. It’s fast, predictable, and the brakes are easily adjustable for safety. I have little trouble with the Seattle hills and I am a big guy. Value for dollar is totally there, build quality is excellent, completely
feels like something made for adults. Highly recommended scooter for grownups, it’s FAST and predictable. Communication and service from the FFR team has been excellent.
Took the Mantis Pro scooter for a spin today. Wow, the power is almost scary and for a newbie like myself there will be a steep learning curve to handle/manage this scooter properly. Thank god for the ability to change/adjust settings. I slowed down initial acceleration.... Handled bumpy sidewalks and potholes no problem. The speed control is very sensitive as are the brakes...... Best thing... I put some smiles on peoples faces while I was passing by....
I originally purchased the WW from fluidfreeride. The WW was great but I was hoping for a smoother ride. It is smooth for a solid wheel scooter but my only scooter experience is with pneumatic tires so the rigidity caught me a little off guard. Called up Peter and he suggested the Mantis. Man, am I glad he did. This thing screams down he road and the ride is unbelievably smooth. The lights really help it stand out at night too. I am still figuring it out - I have the pro version so there are a lot of options to dial it in. One of the best features is the ability to adjust the torque and the start off torque. It can be set to have a smooth take off and then scream down the street. Looking forward to lots of fun experiences with the Mantis. Thanks Peter and your customer service has been outstanding!
My coworker and I just purchased these after owning alternatives. There is NO comparison between the wide wheel and the others we had (Glion Dolly and Swagtron Swagger 5) there are now 6 scooters in our Fleet at work, ours are surely the envy of others;) We have pimped them out with accessories and I look forward to every chance I get to ride it😁
I live very close to work and it's nice to be one something that feels sturdy and durable, with a smooth experience on my commute. Easy to fold down and pack away in my office. Even had a good quick response regarding a missing screw that I needed to attach the throttle. Excellent guide and easy communication.
If you’ve ridden a Lime then you know how cool an electric scooter can be, but also how underwhelming 14mph can be after a while. While this scooter is not short, light, or part of a ride share program - it’s the leader of the scooter world. The battery charges quickly, folding is easy, the key on/off is awesome and the scooter pulls hard and stops on a dime. Have fun over taking bikes in the bike lane because this scooter moves! I’m 180lb commuting via metro north/NYC and this scooter has changed everything! (weather permitting)
I would argue this is the single best electric scooter on the market anywhere as of 2/2/2019 when I am writing this. Previously, to get a wider wheel on your E-scooter, the only option was to put up with pneumatic air tires thus dealing a blow to one of the best benefits of an e-scooter, minimal upkeep and no surprises on the road that take the scooter OFF the road (like a flat). Ill try and just bullet point what I like about it.
1. The wide wheel is so much better in the traction department, and if you live in a major city like NYC, you know the phenomenon of why their wet streets are not like other wet streets. There is decades of accumulated oil from vehicles covering the roadway so when the roads are wet, you lose even more traction because the water is rests on top of this oily covering, so you actually hydroplane on a scooter even if youre going straight.
ADDENDUM: I no longer slide on those damn random metal plates the DOT puts in place over work areas and then never replaces and refills with gravel.
2. The shocks on this puppy are LEGIT. Take it from someone who rides on NYC streets which are absolute crap. Now, its actually comfy and casual to ride my scooter. I actually had to adjust to this with some time, because I was still in the required “action mode” stance for my previous scooters. Shocks are awesome.
3. Battery life is great for a heavier scooter.
4. Heavier scooter: the pro’s/con’s shake down. Your primary scooter should be a heavy one like this, which is such an advantage on the road. The handle bar fold down is a bit of a hassle, but in all honesty, you’re not going to really want to carry this. They were VERY smart to use the types of handles that unlock and fold down. I just push mine around in its native form. Don’t let the weight dissuade you. You can buy a $100-$150 Swagtron scooter that’s 15 pounds if you want something for quick runs to the store or if you are going inside someone for extended time. Heavier is the way to go. I...
