ZERO 10X 60V Electric Scooter Review

ZERO 10X 60V Electric Scooter Review

by freshlycharged

I’ve ridden the Turbowheel Lightning/ZERO 10X 52V version before so I was expecting the 60V version to be the very similar. However, after riding the 60V version it felt completely different. I think the main thing that made it feel so different was the tire choice.

The Turbowheel Lightning I have has off-road tires. Surprisingly, the ZERO 10X with off-road tires felt better on smooth pavement than the street tires. In the future, I think I will switch the tires out so I can get a true side by side comparison.

For a limited time, get $100 off the ZERO 10 and ZERO 10X using the code GotFebruary.

Check out the details here.

With 60 Volts of power and dual 1200 watt motors, you can easily peel out the tires by just pulling the throttle back. The 52V dual 1000 watt motors has a lot of torque, but the 60V dual 1200 watt motors has quite a bit more power. Overall, I would definitely prefer off-road tires to street tires.

Top 5 things I like about the ZERO 10X

  1. Nimble
  2. Tons of torque
  3. Great for steep hills
  4. Large deck
  5. Perfect for light off-roading

The ZERO 10X is compared to the Mantis Pro very often. However, the 10X has more torque on steeper hills than the Mantis Pro. If you live in a hilly area, I highly suggest the ZER0 10X over the Mantis Pro.

The ZERO 10X is great for light off-roading, I love using it at local mountain biking parks. I don’t go off the extreme stuff with large gaps, but the ZERO 10X handles small jumps with ease. It also has great ground clearance so it handles well if you go out of the single track by accident.

Top 5 drawbacks about the ZERO 10X

  1. Single stem
  2. Needs brighter headlight for night riding
  3. Does not lock into itself when folded
  4. Creaky stem
  5. Large footprint so hard to fit in a trunk of a car

ZERO 10X front facing lights are at the deck level so they don’t project light very high.

Three Upgrades That Would Make It A Solid Scooter

  1. Steering Damper
  2. Rugged Folding Clamp
  3. Brighter headlight

By adding a rugged folding clamp, it will prevent that creaky noise coming from the stem. The clamp will also stay in place better so it will prevent the stem from folding in on you when riding. It fixes a safety issue and prevents that annoying creaky sound that a lot of people complain about.

The steering damper helps keep the steering steady helps prevent the scooter from getting into the speed wobbles. I was surprised that the street tires felt so more more loose on the smooth pavement than the off-road tires. A steering damper would make me feel more comfortable when traveling at speeds greater than 25 mph.

It you are going to ride at night, a upgraded headlight is a must. The front facing lights are at the deck level so they do not project light very far. There are tons of choices for upgraded headlights that can be recharged or hard wired in.

Overall thoughts on the ZERO 10X

Overall, I think the ZERO 10X is a great scooter to get into the the high powered scooter market without having to spend $2500 or more. It has its flaws but overall, its a fun scooter that you can get as low as $1699 and as high as $2399 depending on the model. It’s a perfect choice for smooth pavement and lite off-roading.

With a few modifications to the ZERO 10X, you can resolve a lot of the flaws. It’s a great scooter for lite off-roading and is extremely nimble. If you do plan on doing a lot of off-roading, I would suggest picking up a ZERO 11X.

The ZERO 10X can technically handle heavy off-roading. However, with a single stem acting as a huge lever it’s not recommended for heavy off-roading. The dual stem, bigger tires, upgraded suspension, and and extra power on the 11X make it a much better choice for heavy off-roading.
