Zoom Stryder Review – Fast 30 Km/h Electric Scooter

Zoom Stryder Review – Fast 30 Km/h Electric Scooter


So this right here is the zoom Stryder
and it is the fastest most powerful scooter that I have looked at yet on the
channel this one here is capable of 30 km/h top speed
it has a very torquey 500 watt motor that is capable of handling 25 degree
climbs and has a range of up to 30 kilometers but it weighs just 10.9 kilos
so it is lighter than other models I have looked at so in this review here
I’m going to go over the build design the quality of it then take it out for
my tests so row tests that will involve how it is to ride over bumps the kind of
handling are we going to get out of this the acceleration and then my range test
that will involve to seeing how far I can go on a single charge right here and
then finally at the end my overall opinion of these Strider right here so
in the Box you get a Quick Start Guide the charger which is 37.4 volts 3.5 amps
output charging cable depending on your country and then some stickers they make
sure you read that quick guy because I did notice that there’s this in here
which is very interesting and that is to take it out of the eco mode which is by
default and put it into the turbo mode for you speedsters out there that want
maximum performance so when the stride has folded down as you can see right
here it’s only 95 centimeters long and just 15 centimeters wide the reason of
course its own arrows because the handlebars do collapse and they’re very
easy to just pull out into their locked position so they lock in place there and
then that feels really solid the ties that are on the scooter they are hard
solid rubber tires which is a good move so you’re not going to have to worry
about getting a flat tire or a puncher the plastic make out on the rear has
three LED lights in it so when you brake that will show up brighter but not just
from the front electronic brake lever but also pressing down on the manual
brake air they will come on too which is a nice little touch and like the Segway
is one that I looked at the handlebars they clip and lock into the mudguard
like so so you just press down here that locks in place and then you’re actually
able to lift up the whole scooter so it acts
a handle you can also get this optional kickstand you have to buy it off their
website and what is included to also is this right here which is a harness so
you can sling the scooter over your shoulder you just need to strap it
around the handlebars and the rear mudguard
the base of the scooter where the batteries are housed is all made out of
metal very strong feeling and the build quality is excellent of the scooter and
you can see now here too that we do have a shock on the rear which is really
something and I do believe that this is needed considering the fact that we’ve
got those hard solid rubber tires and down the footwell here we have some fine
grip tape the hinge here is made out of solid metal and there’s also a metal
locking pin here to lock it safely in place and again the build quality is
excellent this is really well-made the front wheels where you’ll find that 500
watt motor and you’ll also notice that the front fork does have a shock above
it to absorb impacts and a plastic mud guard so folding up the scooter is very
easy you just need to own a clip the mud guard here on the rear and then just
push up the handlebars and you’ll hear the locking pin click into place now
that displays back ‘lets you’ll be able to see this at nighttime it gives us our
battery percent the temperature your speed of course and then right now I’m
in the trip meter and in the odometer you can see that it’s done at 0.6
kilometers that’ll just be from the factory then testing it the LED
headlight we have on here has six LEDs in there it’s recently bright it
projects the head onto the road which is good and you’ll see that the handlebars
are adjustable there’s a quick-release mechanism here to set positions that’s
the first one right there and then the second one so the charge port is located
behind this weatherproof dustproof flap here and the charge time is two hours
which is really quite good considering that Miami scooter takes about three and
a half hours to charge this one here is quite a bit quicker okay so here reset the trip meter we’ll
keep an eye on that what kind of range I can get out of this so I’m in the Eco
mode which is by default and you can also see that display is very clear and
I have 100% battery and a nice 24 degrees here at the moment so let’s just
the acceleration okay this is gradual in the Eco mode that’s to save battery and
we’ll see the top speed is about the same as well now when you are in this
Eco mode you can’t actually use the cruise control so there we go 30 km/h
maximum speed and it feels really stable because at low center of gravity
handling seems good so far now to test out what’s called the turbo mode so
maximum torque and acceleration full power so you to do this you have to hold
down the brake power it on and then on the accelerator okay now we’ll see the
difference it seems a little bit faster quite a bit
faster actually there without acceleration and I now have cruise
control so I can keep going straight ahead full throttle without holding my
finger down on the accelerator so this is maximum braking now using the rear
brake as well and that’s actually pretty good take a look and see how well it
handles this little claim here now I’m gonna kick off a couple of times now
this is in the Eco mode but actually it’s accelerating going up this which is
really good if right wheel is slipping a little bit
little bit of sand there so I can feel that suspension working
it’s absorbing some of these shocks it’s definitely a lot smoother than the
Segway which only had a shock on the front ground the tiles they’re all damp
and wet as you can see wanna see how this performs on it now the next drive
that I reviewed were the little tiny wheels the slipping around all over the
place on these this seems better their will is slipping a little bit
it’s a very slippery surface but it does handle this actually a lot better than
that next drive so I’ve made it here to the end of last rodas and I’ve got 60%
battery left I’ve done 6.3 kilometers so it’s looking at my range is gonna be
about 12 kilometers or so but we’ll see when I get back because these battery
meters can be a little bit unreliable even when you’re accelerating it drops
right down to 20% so I’ve quite a climb here I’ve put it
into power mode we’ll see how it handles this particular climb will kick off and
it’s doing this really well actually look at this
now the scooters have struggled with this kind of climb but this one is
handling it just fine so rough ground to hit very bumpy let’s
see how its gonna cope with this a suspension doing a really good job
actually really well so I managed to get sixteen point three kilometers out of it
that’s the range with eighty-one kilos which is my weight here now if you wait
later you’ll be able to get a lot more than this and of course they’re testing
the thirty kilometers that they got was under perfect conditions and that was
someone that I think that weighed 60 or 65 kilos so I pushed it even further to
find out the actual real capacity here with my weight at 81 kilos so 18.6 km/h
me cuz a fully charged either one hand percent that’s the total mileage that
I’ve done since I’ve had this on one single charge so that’s actually not too
bad considering I did go up some hills I did a lot of accelerating a lot of
braking and some rough roads as well once I finish riding it’s really easy to
collapse the handlebar so you just place your foot here on that red tab at the
bottom and then push forward on the handlebars at the same time and you can
push the handlebars down now and I quickly compared the Strider here with
my Xiaomi scooter well we have a look at both of them here
you can see that the Xiaomi has the slightly larger wheel so they’re ten
inch ones we have eight inch wheels but they’re hard rubber so you’re not gonna
get any flats on my show me I’ve actually swapped over these tires that
originally had inner tubes and then when air over to solid rubber so I don’t get
any flats now ride quality I would say that the riders actually better on the
Strider because it has the suspension both front and back but I woulds have to
say that the braking on the show-me is better because we have that red disc
brake that just works a lot better and you only really use that on the Strider
for emergency stopping power really and when you do use their combination of the
rear and the front brake then it does break quite well now it did have these
rubber grips on the show me that lady came off so I had to replace them and
also with this Strider model you do get your readout of your battery life and
your speed and the odometer the distance the trip meter is quite
handy something you don’t have on the show me but then on the other hand the
show me here has a bluetooth application where you can monitor and track that and
this model doesn’t have bluetooth at all looking at both of the scooters in there
collapsed form here so you can see the show me is a lot taller because of its
design when those handlebars the zoom is definitely a lot smaller can fit into
smaller places and then those handlebars as well you can push them down like this
so you can store it into even narrower gaps there and whereas the Xiaomi takes
up a little bit more room the show me my scooter weighs 12.5 kilos and the zoom
Strider is 10.9 so it’s also lighter the adjustable handlebars is another
advantage that the zoom Strider has here because you can lower it down there for
shorter people or smaller younger for example 12 year olds or 13 year olds
or something like that where the Xiaomi’s has a fixed height
so overall between these two models here I think I like the zoom Strider better
because it’s five kilometers faster the motor has a lot more torque and grunt to
it so you can get up hills and slopes a lot quicker than the show-me which tends
to slow down they can only tackle 15 degrees whereas this one can tackle up
to 25 and then the pricing of course well that’s something to take into
consideration because the zoom Strider sells for around five hundred and fifty
nine euros whereas the show-me is selling for about three hundred and
fifty euros so overall this is an excellent scooter I really do like it I
love the fact that it charges in only two hours they’ve got a thirty kilometer
max speed it can handle hills and slopes so much better than my other models
because of the 500 watt motor it’s just a little bit more powerful the build
quality overall is really decent the latch mechanism that it has very strong
nothing’s rattling we’ve got the adjustable handlebars so we’ve got the
speed read out your battery readout automatic LED lights on there it’s
overall a very good scooter and it weighs just 10.9 kilos so it’s a couple
of kilos lighter than say my xiaomi hard rubber tyres is another good move the
shocks on it work really well they absorb all the bumps and impacts and the
rear one you do notice it the braking performance is not quite as good as the
Segway or the Xiaomi at least when you just use the front
brake when you use the manual brake as well at the rear automatically triggers
the front brake and then braking performance is really quite good so the
range in my test I managed to get 16 kilometers now that was full-on
acceleration in the whole time rough roads at times and I was also going up a
few few hills and things so I feel if you don’t wait 81 kilos like I do and
you’re a little bit shorter and you’re weightless then you should be able to
get I feel 20 kilometers now that’s still fall short of that 30 kilometer
claim of course that’s under perfect test conditions someone a lot lighter no
winds completely flat surface and roads and that’s how they claim it can do up
to 30 kilometers so the range is definitely going to vary from writer to
writer here but overall very decent package here really enjoying the scooter
thank you so much for watching this review here and I do hope to see you
back in the channel soon with more upcoming electrics good reviews bye for
now
