Great scooter for my commute

I was hesitant between buying a WideWheel single motor or the Horizon scooter. I looked at the widewheel dual motor as well but it was too heavy and I also don’t like that it does not have a display. Wanted something practical for my 6km commute one way in Helsinki. Peter was super helpful in making the right choice and they sent me the Horizon directly from China before it even launched. I received it this week and i love it. It does not have the wideweel nice design but great features. The display lets you read speed and mileage plus you can set speed limit and three gears. Acceleration is fast and I managed to go 40 km/h. Even used it at night and the front lights are really bright. It is not too heavy to carry up some stairs but folding takes a little longer because the handle bar folds down with two screws. But I will probably just fold down the front pole with the main lever and that just takes a few seconds.
The brake is strong and I like that it recharges the battery a little bit when braking.
The suspension feels smooth and so much better than the TIER an VOI rental scooters that feel so rough on the cobble stone in the city.
I can recommend the scooter!

Update after a couple of days

I've had a chance to charge the battery to 100% and this thing is powerful! At full charge, on slight uphills, I cruise at 21 mph, and I've gotten up to 31 mph on a steeper downhill (8-10%). Depending on wind resistance, mild downhills cruise at 25-28 mph.

The rear fender keeps rattling. I screw it down and it goes away for awhile, but I think the screws are going into plastic and don't hold very well. I'm considering using rubber washers between the fender and the frame to solve the noise issue. In the meantime, I'm letting the rear of my shoe touch the fender when I'm riding and it stops the vibration.

I've hit a few bumps that would have knocked me off the Segway (or at least scared me), but the Horizon just rolled on.

I've noticed the rear tire mildly slips around some 90 degree turns, not sure if that is a concern yet as I haven't slipped more than a fraction of a second.

The front lights are disappointing - they are not even close to allowing riding at night. I've added a NightRider headlight to the handlebar, it works well. I've noticed that the scooter's controller has a USB port, and this can charge the NightRider, but the NightRider won't turn on while charging.

My left handlebar keeps loosening up, and I have to keep twisting the lock-down to keep it from rattling, but it is not at risk of folding down. The right side is perfect.

Acceleration is fairly slow - but the unit is powerful once it gets going.

The speedometer will not show below 16 mph when slowing uphill. I compared this against my daughter on the Segway.

Pros:
* More powerful that Segway (same price-point)
* Faster than the Segway
* Full suspension - much smoother and quieter that the Segway
* Rear brake
* Front/rear visibility lights
* Pneumatic front tire

Cons:
* Controller's power & regen setting is non-functional.
* Controller's speedometer is inaccurate when straining uphill.
* Rattling rear fender.
* Right handle loosens up.
* Headlights not for night riding.

Upgrade from my Xiaomi

Cool scooter! So much better than my old Xiaomi. Better acceleration and faster!
Don’t like that it’s heavier but I knew this when I bought.
I like the fluid design of this model in black much better than the Zero 8 with huge branding.
Now I am looking forward to going to work next week.

Very good scooter for the price

I just received the 2019 version today -- I've been riding a Ninebot/Segway S3 for the past 3 weeks. The Horizon is about the same cost, but it is so much better. The ride is far more fluid. I'm used to having to keep my knees bent to absorb shocks from sidewalk cracks and asphalt, or my head felt like it was getting jostled too much. The Horizon lets you forget about that. I'm about 165lbs, and I can keep 16mph on the steeper uphills, and I usually get around 22mph on the flats. I've hit 25 on a downhill, but I'm sure without wind, I could approach max speed on a long flat.

Out-of-the-box, there were a few rattles, I needed to tighten the rear mudguard, and the brake nut a turn, and now it it much quieter. I hear a little rattle over rougher terrain, but not as bad as the Segway. My daughter rode the Segway with me through our hilly neighborhood, and the Horizon was noticeably faster on all but the steepest grades. She passed me on the Segway due to being 80lbs lighter. On moderate hills, I could keep the same speed or faster. Also, her scooter was at full charge while the Horizon was about 75%.

Peter from FluidFreeRide sent me a link to customize the controller - it is fairly flexible. The regen doesn't seem to work much, I assume I have to use the brake handle to engage it -- sometimes I hear a little motor sound, but it isn't very strong at all. The Segway has good regen braking.

I turned on cruise-control, but it is a bit finicky. You need to be going the same speed for 4-5 seconds before it kicks in. I've found that it engages about 1/3 of the times that I expect. Hoping they improve that.

The battery indicator decreases when strong power is put to the motor. I'm not sure if that is a feature or a bug.

Overall, a really nice scooter -- I'm glad that I can return the Segway and ride this from now on!
