Kaabo Mantis Pro Review
Although we’ve tested a number of high-end electric scooters, the Kaabo Mantis is unlike anything else we’ve seen. The Mantis is faster than any electric scooter you can buy, and its range is significantly greater than any scooter you can buy.
One of the neatest features of this scooter is the spring arm suspension in the front and rear, which allows it to traverse almost any terrain with ease.
In spite of the fact that you pay a little more than with your average electric scooter, the Kaabo Mantis offers great value for the money. It should not just be considered a toy, but a real commuting solution. It might be time to stop taking the bus altogether and start using the Mantis instead, since the Pro version is capable of reaching 45+ miles on a single charge.

We are pleased to present our 2021 review of Mantis Pro SE. Our overview section goes into greater detail about a few of the features shown above, before further dissecting the rest of the specs and stats. The KAABO Wolf Warrior 11 scooter is from the same team behind the Wolf Warrior 11 eScooter. These two models have frightening top speeds and explosive acceleration, as it seems that this team loves speed and power. In addition to being able to take on up to 30° inclines, the Mantis is one of the best electric scooters for climbing hills.
In the same way that you probably guessed, the Pro is an upgraded version of the Mantis. Still carrying those majestic dual 1000W motors, which propel riders to their destinations in near silence. The batteries used by Kaboo are sourced from the industry’s top battery manufacturer, LG. A premium performance like this comes at a price, roughly in the upper-middle tier price range. Here are the remaining aspects of our review of the 2021 Mantis Pro SE; starting with speed, power, and distance.
If you ride the Kaabo Mantis Pro SE in eco mode, you’ll be able to travel up to 40 miles / 64 km, whereas if you ride it in turbo mode, you’ll cover about 25 miles / 40 km. There have been several independent owner tests that have confirmed these official scooter ranges. There’s a chance you can get even more range if you ride in eco mode, but also if you take it slow (one owner got 48 mi / 77 km before draining the battery).
A lithium-ion battery from LG powers the Kaabo Mantis Pro while an FST Li-ion battery runs the Kaabo Mantis Base. However, the Pro version is more expensive and has an incomparably better range. To determine whether you should choose the Base or Pro version, you should consider how much range you need
Riders will, however, have to fully charge the scooter rather than just the battery. This model also has the disadvantage of a high charging time, requiring between 9 and 12 hours to recharge from empty. According to Kaboom, a fast charger is being developed, which will reduce the time it takes to just 4-5 hours. Moreover, this LG battery is highly efficient and is equipped with a smart Battery Management System (BMS). This BMS protects against faults like under/overvoltage, under/overcurrent, short circuits and other problems.
There are two motors on the scooter, each of which has a peak power output of 1000 watts. The total peak power of the scooter is 2000 watts. One of the best minimotor controllers in the game, it’s a dual-27A 60 V minimotor controller.
As usual with dual-drive scooters, the motors are brushless DC motors that will provide both excellent speed and superior climbing capacity.
From Kaabo, 40 miles per hour is the official speed. Electric scooters are fast, so they are an excellent choice if you want to get from A to B quickly. We tested our scooter to see how it performed.
Your current speed is always displayed on the handlebar display. Whenever I got the Mantis Pro for the first time, nearly all my friends wanted to try it. It was achieved at 40 miles per hour (64 kilometers per hour) by everyone. We are looking forward to this scooter living up to its promise!
Because the scooter is made from the highest-quality materials, it feels solid and sturdy.
There are 8.5 inches / 22 cm of width and 23 inches / 59 cm of length on the deck of the Kaabo Mantis Pro SE. On long rides, the elevated rear of the deck can also be used as a footrest. For preventing slipping, the deck top is covered in a silicon mat.
In the upgraded version of the scooter, the stem is reinforced, which is one of its biggest advantages. The previous Kaabo Mantis version had a small risk of stem defects, but this is much reduced with the new version.
Control panel/ cockpit
In addition to narrow bicycle-style handlebars and a Minimotors-style trigger throttle, the Mantis has a simple-style cockpit. With the cockpit, you can choose between dual and single motor modes, as well as speed (faster or eco turbo) and power.
In high-performance scooters, trigger-style Minimotor throttles become ubiquitous, but are uncomfortable for prolonged usage. A display with an LED information display is built into the throttle trigger which is bright enough to read in sunlight, with a green backlight for night riding. Clicking the power and mode buttons allows a lot of P-settings to be adjusted.
During a ride, you will always be aware of the current speed, gear, and battery level. There are a number of other options available to customize, including throttle, acceleration level, and top speed. It is possible to set a customized speed limit with the Kaabo Mantis Pro. With the Pro-version, Minimotors Eye technology has replaced the base model’s display, which is a significant upgrade.
There are two LED lights on the front of the deck, two on the rear, and LED light strips on the sides of the scooter. Especially the front and rear lights do not seem to be very powerful. Having that limitation makes this scooter unsuitable for riding after dark, and that is one of its biggest drawbacks. In the event you plan to ride at night, you might want to purchase some after-market lights. This another one of the e-scooters with lights.
It is the dual coil spring suspension that continues to excite most people about Kaabo Mantis. As a result, you feel as though you are hovering over the ground. Despite the worst road conditions, dual spring arms can make the vehicle feel insanely smooth.
In addition to being able to go off-road, the scooter is designed for urban use. In addition to riding smoothly on grass, dirt, and gravel, the suspension system also works on sunny days.
With large and rounded inner tube pneumatic tires measuring 10 inches (25.4 cm) in diameter, the Kaabo Mantis Pro offers a smooth and performance-driven ride. Tires like these improve the ride quality, and your scooter becomes much more responsive and agile. They are mounted on split rims, which is a best-of-both-worlds benefit. Compared to solid rim scooters, changing inner tubes and tires is easier with split rims
Dual hydraulic brakes are attached to both wheels of the scooter. Thanks to Zoom’s brakes, one of the industry’s best manufacturers, the Mantis can be labeled as an extremely safe scooter, thanks to its dual braking system. There will be only a few meters of braking distance with the brakes because they are so responsive.
To prevent the scooter from tipping over when braking from high speeds, it is recommended that you always try to brake using the front brake first.
As an optional feature, you can make the scooter’s E-ABS (electronic antilock braking system) either on or off according to your preference. Personally, I usually leave it on since it makes braking easier. It’s nearly impossible to ride this scooter without a proper helmet since it is quite powerful.
According to Voromotors, the Kaabo Mantis Pro SE does not appear to have an official IP rating, but another place refers to the product as IPX4. It is best to avoid riding in wet conditions unless absolutely necessary, even though several owners have reported riding through some light rain without any problems. You should also avoid hosing your scooter while cleaning it.
As everyone knows, the Kaabo Mantis weighs quite a bit more than other scooters at 61 pounds (28 kilograms), while the Pro weighs 65 pounds (29 kilograms). Although a high-end scooter with a higher weight isn’t bad, at least it’s not bad for your budget.
You can fold the Kaabo Mantis Pro together to fit in the trunk with the sturdy folding mechanism. Although easy to bring to cafes, this isn’t necessarily the most convenient option. Two locks will keep the stem in place so you don’t have to worry about it wobbling while riding. There have been a few foldable scooters that have faced this problem, however, Kaabo Mantis has been reliable.
Next, we will be talking about the design and ergonomics of the 2021 Mantis Pro SE. There are a variety of features on this powerful eScooter that make riding comfortable and enjoyable. Silicone deck mats provide riders with substantially better traction even with wet and muddy shoes. This gives the rider more control, not to mention that it improves their safety & prevents them from slipping. You can rest or park it anywhere & in seconds thanks to the integrated kickstand.
It is also impressive that the fully folding aluminum alloy frame can be stowed and transported compactly and quickly. In addition to this, the scooter has a range of 64 kilometers (40 miles) that makes it highly appealing to commuters. In addition to this, it also has an incline rating of 30 degrees, so it’s a great hill climbing scooter
Even though the Mantis Pro is heavier (30 kg) than most competing models, this shouldn’t be a problem for short trips. The reinforced stem makes for a very robust and durable ride that will withstand any bumps or grazes along the way.
As the frame is still liable to denting, we still do not recommend pushing it to the edge. However, the hand grips held their own without tearing, though they were not remarkable. Additionally, the LCD display featured information concerning the rider’s speed, battery life, riding mode, mileage, and other features.
Where to buy
If you need Kaab Mantis pro scooter, you get it from the Voro motors online store. While they do not offer shipping, you can pick pone from one of their many pickup points.
Post purchase support
It’s no secret that Voromotors makes the best scooters in the world, especially these high-end models. Upon ordering the scooter, it will be shipped for free to the US and should arrive in 2 to 4 business days. There is also international shipping, but it typically takes 10 to 15 business days. Some scooter communities online even consider the customer support team at Voromotors to be a star.
Voromotors will provide one year of warranty coverage for the Mantis. It is possible to return the Mantis within ten days.
There are a few models that can compete with the Kaabo Mantis pro in so many levels. However, on this Kaabo mantis pro review we shall focus on a single one. One is such models is the weped scooter. it is also an upper-tier scooter that offers features that are equally impressive. to begin with, it comes with large wheels and a seat. besides, it can cover a quite extensive range on a single charge.
Final thoughts on Kaabo Mantis Pro Review
I have tried dozens of electric scooters, but the Kaabo Mantis Pro is the best I have ever encountered. In addition to being extraordinarily fast and range is outstanding, making it a powerful behemoth that can take on anything.
This scooter stands out from other ones I’ve tried, even in this price range, due to its attention to detail, built quality, and customization options with the Minimotors Display.
Kaabo Mantis is the perfect solution if you’re looking for a real electric scooter with quality components and you’re prepared to spend some extra money. This is something I use almost daily and am always looking forward to getting up on – I won’t ever get tired of it. It was an honor to be able to test this incredible e-scooter with FluidFreeRide
