inokim electric scooters
Little known in the UK even among electric scooter users, Inokim have built a small but devoted following around the world thanks to their commitment to the best materials and the highest performance possible. You can think of Inokim as building the Rolls Royce of electric scooters, both in terms of the build quality and the price, because while you’ll struggle to find a brand with better design and build quality, it’s also right at the top end of cost for electric scooter models too. But as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. Let’s take a look at Inokim in more detail.
More about Inokim
Inokim started life as a company called MYWAY based in China, the home of electric scooters, but was led by famed Israeli designer Nimrod Sapir as a passion project with a single mission: To reduce reliance on cars and create a world of zero emission transport. Why are we telling you this? Because it tells you what Inokim scooters are all about. They’re not in the business of making toys or novelties, they’re trying to replace the car entirely, which means they don’t cut corners on design or materials and they create heavy duty vehicles that are built to last. Not a single part or piece of their scooters feels rushed or low quality, and you can tell from the unique design touches that these have been created from the ground up to be their own machine, not looking over their shoulders at the competition and trying to beat them on price.
But what does that actually mean in practice? Well for a start, Inokim make some of the most powerful and best performing scooters on the market. Their top of the line scooters pack an incredible 2600 watts of power when many brands won’t even get you half of that. This means big top speeds and even bigger ranges, but also a scooter that feels comfortable using every ounce of that power. You don’t feel like they’ve stripped it down to make it super light, or skimped on materials to balance the cost of the engine: these are heavy, sturdy scooters with great handling and a smooth ride that also happen to be really fast!
Inokim OX & OXO
The Inokim OX & OXO models are the best selling flagships of the Inokim brand, and unlike other scooters in its price bracket they haven’t tried to make it look like a space ship. There are exposed wires, rubber grips on the deck and handlebars and a chunky display that’s clipped on, but you’ll also notice some lovely design touches too: The single fork that makes wheel changing a breeze and the fully folding stem for easy storage. This isn’t a scooter for posing, then, but for the serious commuter it’s got everything you need. The 1300 watt motor is silent and can boast a top range of 75km, with a top speed of 45kph for the OXO, and 20mph for the OX, achieved with just seven hours of charging. This means most people can go to and from the office with the benefit of a full charge both ways.
Despite this high performance the OX and OXO are still light enough to carry around at 28kg, thanks to its full metal alloy construction, while also offering a feather soft riding experience thanks to excellent suspension. It whispers rather than shouts, to the point where you often won’t notice how fast you’re going until you check your display. In short, if you want to commute a decent distance in total comfort, this is the scooter for you.
Inokim Light & Light 2
It probably says all you need to know about Inokim that their affordable model still boasts specs that make it comparable to standard versions of other brands’ scooters, but the Light 2 is designed as a lighter compromise that cuts both weight and performance. The 350W motor delivers a top speed of 35kph and a range of 45km, which is still pretty impressive, and weighing in at just 13.7kg it’s really easy to carry around with you on the commute or on an off road adventure. The weight cut does mean that it has less suspension than higher end models, so you won’t get that same feather light ride that you associate with Inokim, but the design of the scooter still feels extremely high quality and sturdy.
In short, the Light 2 is more like an urban runaround than a serious commuter vehicle, but it is still designed and built like a proper Inokim and grants you all the exceptional survivability and stability that this implies. You even get access to some of the toys that other models don’t get until you reach higher price points, like cruise control and a fast charging battery that takes just five hours to fill. So there’s plenty to like here!
