Limited Edition Blade 10 Pro Electric Scooter Review

Limited Edition Blade 10 Pro Electric Scooter Review

by freshlycharged

The Limited Edition Blade 10 Pro escooter checks a lot of boxes for riders looking for speed, comfort, and control.

FreeMotion recently released a limited edition Eonmotors Blade 10 Pro electric scooter. Jimmy and I were lucky enough to receive a pre-production model to test and review, and give our insights on what could be improved upon.

When I first unboxed the Blade 10 Pro, I was impressed with the unique look of the eScooter. Most scooters come in black, but the Blade 10 Pro we received came in army green, which made it stand out. Unfortunately, the army green color isn’t available to the public, but the limited edition Blade 10 Pro comes in 5 unique colors.

In this review, we will tell you what we love and hate about the Limited Edition Blade 10 Pro.

Top 10 things I love about the Blade 10 Pro

  1. Sine wave controllers
  2. Steering damper
  3. Color choices
  4. Nutt hydraulic brakes
  5. Unique look
  6. Adjustable hydraulic suspension
  7. Turn signal indicators
  8. Adjustable stem height
  9. LG Battery
  10. Nice buttons

What type of controller is on the Blade 10 Pro?

The Blade 10 Pro features a sine wave controller, which makes the scooter easy to control and modulate. Jimmy refers to sine wave controllers as being, “velvety smooth!” Sine wave controllers are far superior to square wave controllers because it eliminates the jerkiness that come with traditional less expensive controllers.

Most scooter controllers use square wave technology, also known as a trapezoidal wave.  Sine-wave creates a more rounded wave that is a lot quieter and smoother when ramping up speeds. Other scooters that feature sine wave controllers are the Bronco Xtreme 11 Sport and Kaabo Wolf King GT Pro.

The Limited Edition Blade 10 Pro steering damper

Freemotion has included a steering damper with all their Blade 10 Pro scooters. I wish that all scooter manufacturers would put a steering damper on any scooter that goes over 30 mph.

One of the most common accidents with high-powered scooters is overcorrecting the steering and causing the scooter to have speed wobbles. A steering damper prevents overcorrecting, so you can ride safer at higher speeds.

You can adjust the steering damper to be stiff when traveling at high speeds, and you can make it soft when attempting to be more nimble. I like to ride at high speeds, so I have it stiff 99% of the time.

The steering damper does limit your turning radius so if you prefer to ride slow and need to navigate tight turns, you can consider leaving the steering damper off.

What color choices does the limited edition Blade 10 Pro come in?

The Blade 10 Pro comes in 5 colors: titanium, gold, red, green, and blue.

I was hoping the Blade 10 Pro would come in the army green we received, but I learned the anodizing process for army green was hard to replicate. I love that you can choose your favorite color and stand out from a market crowded with black scooters.

What type of brakes are on the Blade 10 Pro?

The Blade 10 Pro features Nutt hydraulic brakes. Nutt hydraulic brakes feel so much better than Zoom hydraulic brake. Zoom hydraulic brakes are strong, but they are all or nothing.

With Nutt brakes you can easily modulate soft or strong braking power. I also find that Nutt hydraulic brakes do not need to be bled as often as Zoom hydraulic brakes.

Stand out with the Blade 10 Pro

The electric scooter market is growing extremely fast. However, I find that a lot of scooter designs can become stale and look similar to previous models. FreeMotion and Eonmotors did a good job on making the limited edition Blade 10 Pro look unique.

I love the clean lines and aesthetics of the Blade 10 Pro. The CNC kickstand looks great and functions well. And with the ability to choose your favorite color, you can stand out with the Blade 10 Pro.

What type of suspension does the Blade 10 Pro have?

The Blade 10 Pro features swing arm suspension, also known as C-type suspension. Most scooters that use swing arm suspension use cheap coil suspension that can easily be bottomed out. Freemotion upgraded the suspension from coil to adjustable hydraulic suspension.

Adjustable hydraulic suspension is amazing, because you can stiffen it up for speed runs and soften it for off-roading. It took a while for FreeMotion to produce the limited edition Blade 10 Pro because it was hard to find adjustable hydraulic suspension.

I commend FreeMotion on sourcing the suspension from Taiwan which is much more pricey than Chinese made suspension.

Does the Blade 10 Pro have turn signal indicators?

There are lots of consumers purchasing scooters to replace cars. However, most scooters in the past have not included safety features like turn signal indicators. The Blade 10 Pro features turn signal indicators that work well.

I wish the turn signal indicators were brighter, so they could be seen easier during the day.

Does the Blade 10 Pro have an adjustable stem height?

The Blade 10 Pro has a stem that can be adjusted for short and tall riders. You can even shorten the stem for children to ride. Sometimes adjustable stems on electric scooters can feel flimsy when extended all the way but the Blade 10 Pro stem feels solid even when it is full extended.

What type of battery does the limited edition Blade 10 Pro feature?

FreeMotion has upgraded the battery on the Blade 10 Pro to a 60V 28Ah LG battery, making it a total of 1680 watt hours. LG batteries have less failure rate than Chinese battery cells and last longer.

No more ugly red and yellow buttons

I’m surprised that some scooter manufacturers still use those cheap looking red and yellow buttons. The Blade 10 Pro features the clean black buttons that are also waterproof.

The only problem with the black buttons is that you don’t know if you are in turbo/eco or single/dual motor mode. However, you can easily tell if you are in single or dual motor mode based on how fast the scooter accelerates.

Top things I hate about the Blade 10 Pro

  1. Not very portable
  2. No instructions for steering damper, fenders, or kickstand
  3. Steering damper limits turn radius
  4. Not super fast off the line

Is the Blade 10 Pro portable?

It depends.

The Blade 10 Pro features a rugged clamp similar to the ZERO 10X and Mantis Pro. However, the Blade 10 Pro adds a threaded hole where you can put a bolt through making the stem rock solid.

When you have the bolt through the threaded hole and stem, there is zero stem wobble. But when you have a bolt in stem, the scooter is not very portable.

You do not have to use the bolt on the stem, which makes the Blade 10 Pro much more portable, but you will have a slight stem wobble.

If you choose to use the bolt in the stem, be sure to carry a tool with you just in case you need to collapse the scooter.

Luckily, I’m mechanically inclined.

When I first unboxed the Blade 10 Pro, there were so many random parts in the box with no instructions. I assume this is because it was a preproduction model. Luckily, I’m mechanically inclined and messed around with enough scooters that I was able to figure out how to put the scooter together.

I hope they included instructions for the steering damper, fenders, and kickstand with the production Blade 10 Pro scooters.

Does the steering damper on the Blade 10 Pro restrict the turning radius?

I love that the Blade 10 Pro has a steering damper. However, the steering damper does limit your turning radius so it’s not very nimble.

If you live in a highly populated area, you may want to take the steering damper off or purchase another scooter.

Is the Blade 10 Pro fast off the line?

For most people, the Blade 10 Pro is a fast scooter. However, to me the Blade 10 Pro is a little slow off the line. I don’t get the “rip your arms out its socket” feeling like I do with the Kaabo Mantis.

Jimmy loves the acceleration curve on the Blade 10 Pro because it is much more controlled and smooth.

Who is the Limited Edition Blade 10 Pro perfect for?

The Blade 10 Pro is perfect for someone looking for a high powered scooter that is easy to control. With the steering damper and sine wave controllers, you’ll be in complete control, going 5 mph all the way up to 40 mph.

The Blade 10 Pro is perfect for someone who wants to choose an escooter that is a different color than black. If you want to stand out from the Kaabo and ZERO scooters that most people ride, you will stand out with the Blade 10 Pro.

If you have owned Kaabo scooters in the past, and hate the jerky feeling that Minimotors controllers create, you will love the silky smooth feeling that the Blade 10 Pro has.
