Upgraded SuperPower WideWheel Pro Electric Scooter Debuts in the U.S.
The WideWheel Pro electric scooter is the latest update to the most popular electric scooters of 2019. Fortunately, for American drivers, WideWheel Pro has just debuted in the United States.
At Electrok we spend a lot of time on the original WideWheel electric scooter.
Several Electrek writers own a personal electric scooter as their own, and we have conducted multiple reviews and off-road adventures of popular scooters.
Not only enjoy the original WideWheel electric scooter, we are excited to see the release of the upgraded 2020 WideWheel Pro. The latest version improves the original WideWheel with many additional features.
First, let's introduce what has remained the same. The 2020 WideWheel Pro electric scooter still offers dual 500 W motors, ultra-wide airless foam-filled tires and full suspension. Other than that, almost everything has been upgraded.
New display: The main disadvantage of the original WideWheel may be display or no display. The upgraded WideWheel Pro is equipped with a new digital display showing speed, battery, mileage, power mode and cruise control options. Speaking of cruise control, this is also a new feature. Oh, and there's a new LED headlight mounted on the front of the display. A small black box is full of new features.
Upgraded braking: The new WideWheel Pro upgrades the front and rear 120 mm disc brakes to provide greater braking power and can be manually adjusted between the front and rear braking forces.
Maximum speed: Although the previous WideWheel can reach 25 mph (40 km / h), the speed of the 2020 WideWheel Pro electric scooter has reached 26 mph (41.8 km / h). Well, this is not a big leap, but this already fast scooter is faster, so who can complain?
Battery: The 2020 WideWheel Pro is equipped with a larger 48V 15Ah (720 Wh) battery, which provides a range of about 10-15% than previous models. Fluidfreeride is the only distributor of WideWheel Pro in the United States. It travels at full speed with a rider of 160 pounds (72.5 kg) at a speed of about 18-20 miles (29-32 kilometers) and says it can ride more than 30 in ECO mode. Miles (51 kilometers) range.
Upgraded materials: To make the scooter stronger, the rods, forks, and frame have been upgraded. The stem is now thicker and the fork is reinforced.
Upgraded Controller: The 2020 WideWheel Pro has upgraded the controller to increase efficiency to help provide better power transmission and extend range.
Despite all these improvements, you can't add too much to an electric scooter without affecting weight. Therefore, I think the only downside of WideWheel Pro is that it is slightly heavier and weighs 54 pounds (24.5 kg). The previous dual-motor WideWheel weighed 50 pounds (22.7 kg), so there was little difference. And I haven't found WideWheel's weight to be a problem because it balances well with the motors on each wheel. I don't want to carry it with me all day long, but it is always within my control to walk from the train to the car or to climb a few stairs.
Apart from weight, the only other obstacle is price increases. Although the previous dual-motor WideWheel had a suggested retail price of $ 1,199, the 2020 WideWheel Pro has a suggested retail price of $ 150. But Fluidfreeride's scooter sells for $ 1,149 during the pre-order period, so you can still buy it for almost the same price as the original scooter, and basically get all the upgrades for free. Shipments are expected to begin in mid-January, so the waiting time is only a few weeks.
