OK, now forget everything you knew so far about electric scooters because we bring you hot review of the real monster among electric scooters. It’s the Apollo Ultra, the real beast on wheels and the ultimate off’road electric scooter. So far, we have already presented Apollo City and Apollo Explore, electric scooters of this quality brand that are intended for urban terrains. However, the Apollo Ultra is different in every way.
In addition to the standard features that adorn all Apollo scooters such as 24-month warranty, quality workmanship, wide standing platform, powerful engines, excellent suspension, robust frames made of aluminum alloys, etc., Apollo Ultra brings a number of new features and improvements taking it to the top of fast electric scooters, surpassing some of the most popular competing scooters, such as the Nanrobot LS7, Mantis Pro and Dualtron Thunder.
Design and Main Features of Apollo Ultra Electric Scooter
Even at the first glance at the Apollo Ultra you immediately realize that you are dealing with something new, which is not often seen on the city streets. And you’re right. Apollo Ultra is a beast, fast and very well made and it is beautiful and a bit intimidating at first. It is designed for an off-road experience, fast driving and enjoying the wide spaces around you. It is not for traffic jams, narrow city passages and alleys, stairs etc. You simply cannot get the most out of it on such terrains. We can say that Apollo Ultra is a dirt bike among electric scooters.
Wondering what makes this scooter so special? So let’s start. First, its robust design tells us that it is designed for extreme driving and great effort. It is a real giant among scooters (56 x 52 x 28 inches) which is adorned with a massive frame with a double bar steering handle. The standing platform is extra wide, to provide extra stability and support for the driver when running off-road terrain at a maximum speed of 60 mph. The entire frame of the Apollo Ultra electric scooter is made of aviation grade aluminum alloy, so strength and durability are fully ensured. However, the designers did not stop there, but strengthened the sides of the frame with two metal rails for additional strength and durability.
The entire construction stands on two 11″ wheels with pneumatic all-road tires, which are still more suitable for off-road than city driving. If you want to try this scooter on urban terrain you might need to replace the tires and put on classic urban or sport tires. The 11″ tires are accompanied by an excellent double hydraulic suspension on both wheels. Of course, this is necessary in order to ensure durability and to carry the load of a scooter of as much as 127 lbs. So, this is a model that you will not carry around, and it is not intended for that either. This model can also be folded, but this time not to make it easier to carry, but to pack it in the trunk of your car and transport it to the terrain where you will drive it. Due to that, but also due to the greater stability of the scooter and its strength, the folding mechanism is more complex and heavier than with other electric scooters made mainly for urban driving. It is a quadruple mechanism with reinforced screws. Don’t worry, you still don’t need a tool to disassemble or assemble it, you can do everything manually. The designers did not want to bother you with too complicated mechanism, because the purpose of the Apollo Ultra electric scooter is to enjoy, and not to waste time on unnecessary problems.
And not to forget, the maximum weight of the driver is up to 440 lbs, meaning double than the standard electric scooters. So, jump on and enjoy the ride!
Like we said, this is the real beast on wheels that can speed up to 60 mph. This is possible thanks to 1600 W dual motor (each) and with a maximum output of an incredible 6000 W. In order not to misjudge your abilities and overdo it at high speeds until you completely master it, this scooter is equipped with several speed modes and you can choose to whether you use both or just one motor. If you use dual motor mode you will be able to enjoy on this scooter up to 60 minutes of continuous driving, and with single motor mode up to 90 minutes of continuous driving. The motors are powered by 72 V 32 Ah LG battery cells which, when discharged, require up to 20 hours to recharge. However, don’t worry, the Apollo Ultra has two charging ports, so if you use them synchronously, you can halve the charging time to 10 hours, which is quite acceptable for a beast like this. Apollo ultra uses dual 160 mm Hydraulic oil brakes which are extra strong. It is the must for those increadible speeds and to ensure quick and safe stop.
When it comes to the safety of drivers, but also vehicles, Apollo took care oft that too. Apollo Ultra comes with two LED headlights placed just above the front wheel, LED taillight and LED brakelight. It will be quite enough for other to see you clearly in traffic, but also to illuminate the terrain in front of you to drive safely in the dark. In addition, the scooter itself is secured via keylock, which ensures that the engines and wheels of the Apollo Ultra electric scooter are blocked, so that it cannot be started in case someone tries to steal it. However, it would not be a bad idea to additionally insure and not leave it unsecured in public places accessible to everyone. However, the Apollo Ultra electric scooter costs as much as $ 3500, so you don’t have to dag and give it as a gift to the first passer-by.
