Founded in 2016 in Kowloon, Hong Kong, Fiido has become a leader in folding electric bikes, earning numerous accolades along the way. Their latest offering, the Fiido Beast electric scooter, is a groundbreaking innovation in the e-scooter market. Unveiled on Indiegogo on March 17, 2022, the Beast revolutionizes the e-scooter experience by offering a dual riding mode – stand up like a traditional scooter or sit down for a go-cart-like thrill.
Performance That Stands Out The Fiido Beast isn’t just about its looks. It’s a powerhouse with a 1300w dual-drive system (500W front, 800W rear) capable of hitting speeds up to 30mph (48km/h). With 11-inch all-terrain tires, it promises excellent off-road traction. The scooter’s 1536Wh battery delivers up to 62 miles (100km) in single-wheel mode and 43 miles (70km) in dual-wheel mode. Its dual disc brakes and suspension system ensure a smooth and safe ride, particularly on uneven terrains.
Unique Design and Features What makes the Fiido Beast unique is its adjustable steering column and seat that allow riders to switch between a standing or a sporty seated position. This innovative design could potentially enhance stability and make for an exhilarating ride, although a hands-on test is pending.
