I can't say enough good things about Fluid Free Ride and my Mantis Pro. Firstly FFR has been outstanding in their service, response and delivery; I have no complaints and feel well looked after into the future if anything ever went wrong. A big thank you for that.
Ok onto the Mantis.
This scooter is phenomenal. I previously had a Wide Wheel Pro and whilst I don't want to put anyone off buying a WWPro, I have to say that for me, the Mantis Pro is perfect with its extra speed, distance and maneuverability. I have a 5 mile commute to work and back and it makes the journey exciting whereas it used to be boring. Chilly, but exciting. I give it a full charge every 3 days and it lasts the 10 miles each of the 3 days. And I like to cruise on weekends for up to 40 miles on a single charge.
A few things to consider.
This machine is fast if I need it to be or normal if I need it to be. It is very easy to control the power with my left and right thumbs, even with gloves on and even as I use the accelerator or brake. I barely have to glance down at the controls.
It is really stable. The wide handlebars and big tires give a feeling of security even at 40mph. Conversely at slow speeds it maneuvers easily, which is particularly useful where I work in a University.
The suspension and brakes are tremendous and really do the machine justice. I often plow over drain covers and road grit barely noticing them at high speed.
It is highly visible at night with its deck and rear lighting.
All in all I am 100% plus happy with everything. I'm doing my bit to be eco-friendly while saving tons of money on gas, insurance and maintenance on a car. This is way better than a car. If you buy this scooter, protect your investment with good security and protect yourself from road rash or worse with a full face motorcycle helmet and padded jacket and pants.
I stylized my Mantis with a handlebar extension that allows me to have a mirror, front light and phone mount (the front light also charges my phone; nice). I also added indicators which are sometimes a little tricky to use until you get used to them as it means a tap on the rubber end to indicate and another tap to stop indicating.
On the security side I have a disc lock shown and a 16mm U lock for the front. I also attached a remote controlled alarm to the front fork. This is brilliant; less than 30 bucks on Amazon. Attaches with adhesive backed tape and 2 zip-ties.
