Since range of electric scooters varies greatly by riding style and rider weight, here are some examples for this particular model so you can judge:

35 miles

Optimal Conditions (165 lb rider, 15 mph constant speed)

This is the range you can get under optimal conditions. Usually manufacturers quote this type of range. We expect real world range to be lower since you will not go at constant slow speed.

28 miles

Real World (165 lb rider, aggressive riding)

This range has been tested by electric-scooter.guide under real world conditions. Quick acceleration, multiple stops, some inclines. All ESG range tests are done by the same rider and on the same circuit.

Very comfortable. The suspension absorbs all road imperfections. The braking is phenomenal and the speed is plenty fast for a scooter. Great autonomy as well.

Thank you FluidfreeRide! Great Customer service

The Explore was purchased for my wife and she loves it. We took both scooters on a trip to Palm Springs and rode around the Hoteles huge property and had so much fun.

Love my Explore more than my Pegasus.

Scooter is fantastic. I have the Varla pegasus with similar specs and it's great but I fell in love with this apollo explore more. Very powerful for how light it is. And the size is seemingly compact, easy to carry and put in trunk for how much power this offers. Much lighter and easier to maneuver than the pegasus. Very agile. Pegasus seems more solid on the suspension though. Not sure how tough the Apollo is, we'll see but so far so great even jumped it off a couple of curbs. Only thing I don't like is how fat the center of the handle bars is and the screw area of the folding handle bars. The part where you screw it into to keep the handle bars in place while in use seems cheap. Seems like it's just plastic material.

Best for it's price

I was looking at the Horizon at the Fluid store in SF and tried the Explore just out of curiosity. It looked like an aggressive scooter with big tires, disk brakes, suspension, etc so I didn't think I would be into to but after taking it for a couple of loops around the block I was sold! The Horizon's deck felt a bit cramped with the handle but the Explore was super comfortable with the big wide deck. Also due to the suspension and the big 10" tires I never felt like uneven road was going to give it too much trouble. The brakes were almost too good when I skidded a little at a stop sign. It totally eats up rough road and goes up hills at a speed faster than some rental scooters go on flat ground! At night the scooter is lit up like a Christmas tree, with various ground effects and a long led strip on the stem, so you definitely will be visible. Also, the flashing brake lights is a nice safety feature.

As for negatives the weight is a bit much to carry far; I live on the 3rd floor of a 4 story apartment building with no elevator so I am about done when I get to my floor. I have learned to let the steering stem turn all the way to one side before lifting it, this allows it easier to tote. Also, there doesn't seem to be any warning before the voltage meter reaches its charging minimum voltage which can leave you in a lurch if you don't check the voltage level often. Even if there were a notification letting you know you had a few miles before it shuts off would help. I think they've addressed this in other models. The last con would be the lack of an adequate headlight to light up the road at night. This can be remedied with a bike headlight pretty easily, although keep in mind that you will need one that accepts a wide tube or buy an accessory bar. When I first rode the Explore down hills the regen braking system seemed to grab which was a little unsettling but this can be remedied by lowering the regen P setting. Now it's very smooth.

In all I couldn't find another scooter for $1000.00 that had a top speed of more than 31 mph let alone the other things you find on higher end scooters such as disk brakes, 10" tires, and a 1000 watt motor. There are much faster scooters out there but 31 mph is plenty for me. If you're looking for a commuter scooter that eats road bumps and hills for breakfast for the price you can't do much better!

Apollo Explore

Quick shipping excellent customer service snd the apollo explore is awesome as well. I’ve only put 35 miles on the scooter and I’m happy with the performance, only issue for me is acceleration. All in all great scooter and fluid free ride shipped quick and great customer service.

Great scooter and company

I purchased this scooter from Fluid Freeride as an upgrade from my Horizon, as it had problems- but they let me use the value of the Horizon to upgrade to the Explore and I could not be happier. The only problem with this scooter is the weight, as I have to carry it up stairs, but Fluid does also offer the Mosquito as a good alternative. I love the speed and comfort of the Explore however and will not be switching to any other scooter unless it’s necessary. The scoot is incredible and smooth as hell on the roads, even over potholes and bad conditions, and can definitely be taken in light off-road conditions. It’s a great purchase for commuters to a college campus like me and probably anyone else. The scooter is a bit old at this time, so I think would like to see a price drop, but it’s a great option to have in their lineup. All of my dealings with Fluid Freeride have been quick, fantastic, and helpful. Should I ever feel the need to buy a new scooter, it will be from Fluid Freeride.
