Introduction

The INOKIM Ox electric scooter comes in two models: the Hero and the Super. The difference is battery size, which means the larger Super has more range. Both offer really good range, as well as an all-terrain design and fast speed. If you’re looking for something you can use in the city and off-road, this powerhouse electric scooter is a great choice.

Range and speed

Both the Hero and Super come with an 800-watt rear brushless hub motor. For all its power, it’s very quiet. You can expect up to 28 mph, depending on the terrain. That’s very fast, so it’s important to always wear safety gear and use caution. We don’t recommend scooters this fast for kids.

The models vary on their battery sizes. The INOKIM Ox Hero has 60V, 13Ah Chinese cells that provide up to 32 miles of range. That number comes from optimal conditions, a 170-pound rider, and 15 mph constant speed. The INOKIM Ox Super’s lithium-ion battery is still 60V, but it’s a bigger size at 21Ah. That gives you a range of up to 45 miles. The Hero takes about 6-8 hours to charge, while the Super takes 10-12 hours.

Construction

Like the other scooters from INOKIM, both Ox models are designed with high-quality materials, like casted aluminum alloy. Like the INOKIM Quick 3, the scooter also has an original alloy wheel, kickstand, anti-skid texture, and rear mudguard. The scooter folds in just 5 seconds, so you can carry and store it more easily. Both the INOKIM Ox Hero and Super are much heavier than the other scooters (except the INOKIM Oxo) at 57 and 61 pounds, respectively. Both models are best for riders no heavier than 265 pounds.

There’s lots of room on the deck for a comfortable stance. The 10-inch tires are pneumatic. You also have the option of fitting 10 x 3 off-road pneumatic tires on the scooter, if you plan to use it for that purpose. You'll purchase those tires separately.

Safety

The most noteworthy safety feature we want to point out is the patented adjustable suspension. It can be adjusted to low or high. Low is best for stability at higher speeds, while the high suspension gives you more clearance. When you’re first getting comfortable with riding, stick with the default high setting. The suspension is found on both the front and rear of the scooter.

For brakes, the INOKIM Ox has a front drum brake and rear disc brake. They’re both controlled by levers on the handlebars. If you’re riding in the dark, be sure to take advantage of the front and rear LED lights. They are very bright, but INOKIM does recommend another headlight for long night rides.

Thumb throttle display

You turn the lights on and off using the LCD display on the handlebar. This is also where you’ll find the accelerate thumb button. Functions on the display include speed limit mode and cruise control. You can also access your stats like trip distance, distance you’ve traveled since you got the scooter, your speed, and more. The user manual lays out everything you need to know about the display.

Customer service

Shipping within the continental US is free when you buy from FluidFreeRide, the official USA retailer for INOKIM. If you find the scooter isn’t how it was described on the product page, you can return it for a full refund. You can also return it within 15 days if it’s unused and in its original packaging. You pay return shipping. If everything is fine with the scooter and you’re happy with it, manufacturer defects are covered with the 12-month limited warranty. Customer service is based in the US. If you have any problems with the scooter, customer service promises to work with you to find a solution, even if the issue isn’t covered by the warranty.

Downsides

The biggest downside with the INOKIM Ox is its weight. At 57 or 61 pounds, it is quite heavy. If you’re using it for a commuter scooter and need to carry it at any point, you might have some trouble. It isn’t as portable as other mid/long-range INOKIM scooters like the INOKIM Light 2 or Quick 3. If you want a scooter with the range that the INOKIM Ox provides, however, you do lose the portability. Another potential downside is the long charging time, but again, for batteries of this size, they just take longer. The INOKIM Ox also doesn’t seem to be waterproof, which could be an issue if you’re off-roading in rain or after rain.

Who should buy the INOKIM Ox?

The INOKIM Ox is a fantastic choice for someone who wants a really long range, fast speeds, and the option to use the scooter in urban and off-road environments. Both the Hero and Super have a powerful 800-watt motor. If you want the longer range, choose the Super. Bear in mind that it is more expensive than the Hero by a couple of hundred dollars. If you’re willing to pay more for the bigger battery because you have a long commute, it’s worth it.

Final verdict

The INOKIM Ox lives up to its name. At over 50 pounds, it’s not a portable scooter, but it makes up for that in power, speed, and range. The Hero, which has the smaller battery, offers a realistic 22 miles of range and 28 mph. The Super gets around 33 miles of range. Thanks to the scooter’s durable build and large pneumatic tires, it works for both urban riding and off-roading. The suspension makes the ride comfortable, even over bumpy roads. The brakes and lighting are great, too. If you’re in the market for a powerhouse scooter built to last for many years, consider the INOKIM Ox.

All in all, the INOKIM Ox is an excellent electric scooter with not too many weak points. However, for the specs you’re getting, it is on the steep end price-wise. It looks incredible and the suspension system is excellent, but we would’ve wished for a little more power and/or range at this price point. For that reason, the INOKIM Ox falls short of a few competitors and “only” scores 4 out of 5 stars.
