Kaabo was founded in 2013, (Ningbo Kaabo Technology Co., Ltd.) and since then they’ve made numerous electric scooters and electric unicycles. You can find their scooters in over 30 countries in Europe, America and Asia. Kaabo’s mission statement is simple; bring “safe, convenient, environmentally-friendly and fashionable” scooters to their customers.
Worth to mention is that all of their scooters bring power along too, as is the case with their Mantis and Skywalker series. The Skywalker 10H, 10S, 10S+, 10, 8S and 8 are all high performance scooters, with an admirable amount of power and range. Kaabo has made it their mission to go beyond what regular scooters can do on the road, to reach greater speeds and climb steeper angles – in their own words, to push the boundaries of what’s possible for electric scooters.
As a side-note, Kaabo also offers a lower-powered option for the casual commuter, the Kaabo Air, that’s like a better performing (and better looking) Xiaomi M365.
After this short history lesson, let’s take a look at the Wolf Warrior 11. It’s fierce, fast and powerful. Comes with a pretty cool name. This high-performance electric scooter was made with the intent to rival the big boys on the block, and it rivals the Dualtron Thunder and Dualtron Ultra V2. The Wolf Warrior aims to do what they do, for a lower price.
Compared to most scooters, the Wolf Warrior 11 has a relatively high ground clearance, meaning it’s going to beat any curb and hill you come across. The Dual Hydraulic Shock Absorption, like the one most motorcycles use, located on the front will keep your ride smooth no matter the terrain. The Wolf Warrior has a dual-spring suspension system in the rear, and uses tubeless pneumatic tires; the best possible choice on any electric scooter, and a mandatory one on an off-road high-performance scooter.
It rides like a dream, and handles corners, hills and dirt tracks with ease. With almost 8″ of clearance, you can try tackling some very rocky roads.
The Wolf Warrior has two motors, two 1200 W hub motors; it boasts more power in one wheel than most scooters do in two, and if you’re feeling like riding for a long time, the one engine Eco Mode will get you up to 90 miles. The single motor mode can get you to 31 mph in a flash.
The Dual-Drive Mode has a max speed of 56 mph, and can have a peak power output of 5400 W. More Watts means higher acceleration, so be sure to wear protective gear and hold on tight. Stay safe, use a full face helmet! A foldable helmet isn’t a good idea, but it’s better than nothing.
The cool thing about this scooter is that its parameters are all adjustable; so you can limit the amount of torque you start out with, the torque at your disposal and you can even limit the max speed this scooter can reach; depending on how you want it to behave on the road.
A powerful motor is nothing without great brakes to back it up. This scooter has hydraulic front and rear brakes. The 160 mm brake pads are slightly smaller than the Dualtron Thunder’s, but are better than almost any other scooter out there. The electric motor-assisted ABS is always a great thing to see on any scooter (this system checks if the tires are locked, and if they are, it turns the motor on for a very short time. This makes the tire grip the road and keep braking, ideal for off road riding).
Last, but not least, the dual LED headlights are fantastic. It’s very rare to find a scooter with great headlights out in the wild, and Kaabo understands how important a great light is. You won’t have to buy aftermarket headlights or mess around with bicycle headlights.
The Wolf Warrior has the IPX4 Water Resistant Certificate, meaning that it is not waterproof, but getting wet won’t damage it. As long as you don’t submerse it in a puddle or a lake. All in all, this is a very safe, balanced scooter and most riders should have no trouble with it.
We’re pleased to see that the Wolf Warrior uses the LCD Screen and controller made by Minimotors. Its quality and readability are unmatched in the industry.
The other great feature we didn’t really expect is the powerful electric horn.
Like most high performance electric scooters, this behemoth is not easily portable; it weighs a hefty 101 lbs (45 kg). While it is foldable scooter, still it is not portable – when folded the scooter gets shorter but longer. You’re going to need a big trunk if you want to drive this scooter around. In some cars, it’s easier to leave the scooter unfolded and lean it towards the backseat.
The Wolf Warrior uses the LG 60V 35Ah Battery. This is a very powerful battery; the high 60 V voltage means more maximum speed, the 35 Ah capacity means it holds 2100Wh, giving it more range. The great capacity has a “drawback” in the form of a long recharge time.
Some people might get scared with the 14+ hour recharge time with one charger, and they’d be wrong. Imagine it being like a very big gas tank; naturally, it’ll be slower to fill up a big gas tank than a small one, but a bigger gas tank will last you quite a while longer than a small gas tank.
It isn’t a problem if you follow the “always recharge after every ride” rule, which every scooter rider should follow; it’s easier to top off a bit of power than recharge an empty battery. As a pro-tip, carrying your charger in your backpack while you ride is a good idea, because most coffee shops and gas stations will let you recharge for free.
