The Ultra is the real beast on wheels and the ultimate off-road electric scooter by Apollo. Also, it surpasses a number of the competing models like Nanrobot S7, Mantis Pro and Dualtron Thunder concerning speed, quality of workmanship, lightning features and power etc.
What makes it so special are its robust design for extreme driving conditions, big size making it a “giant” among electric scooters,(56 x 52 x 28 inches), massive frame with a double bar steering handle, extra wide standing deck and maximum speed of 60 mph on off-road terrains. You read that right, 60 mph! The 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. 11″ wheels with pneumatic all-road tires are accompanied by an excellent double hydraulic suspension on both wheels. And what we liked the best is the fact that this is full adult model able to carry a rider weighting up to 440 lbs. Just outstanding. For more info just read our full review of Apollo Ultra.

After that you will need up to 6 hours to fully recharge the battery when it runs out of the juice. Also, you can use this scooter as a regular kick scooter without using the motor. But, be aware, when you have juice in batteries and you move faster than 3 mph, don’t apply the throttle because engine will engage. Read our full review on Razor E Prime III.
