Comparative Review: Fluid Freeride CityRider vs Kaabo Mantis 8 Electric Scooters

In the market of electric scooters, two models are visible standouts: the Fluid Freeride CityRider and the Kaabo Mantis 8. This article aims to compare the features and specifics to help you make the right choice. Starting with the Fluid Freeride CityRider, beloved for city commuting with its light weight of 28 lbs and a maximum speed of 18 mph. Its modest 300W motor and 10-mile range is geared towards casual city rides. It’s also packed with safety features like front and rear lights and an electronic braking system. The scooter’s 8.5” airless rubber tires make it a delight to ride on paved streets, however, may struggle on rough terrains. This model is perfect for users who want convenience and portability. On the other end, the Kaabo Mantis 8 is known for its toughness and off-road capabilities. It weighs 50 lbs, significantly heavier than CityRider but in exchange, it boasts a weighty 800W motor and can reach speeds up to 31 mph. It also beats CityRider with its range of up to 25 miles on a single charge. The dual disc brakes and 8-inch tubeless pneumatic tires give it an advantage on rough terrains. While it lacks built-in lights, the rigid construction, and powerful performance more than compensate for that. In summary, the CityRider is the perfect companion for casual city cruising and short commutes, prioritizing comfort and portability. Whereas, Mantis 8 goes the distance and functions better for demanding routes or longer travels, focusing more on power and durability.
