Boosted Rev Complete Review – The iPhone Of Electric Scooters

The Boosted Rev model has been discontinued! You may still be able to find some units left on their store, but you will not have support for parts and warranty will be limited. If you want a similar scooter, with the same level of quality and performance, in the same price range, and even the same waterproof level, I would recommend checking out the EMove Cruiser (full review here).

You may have heard the saying “you get what you pay for”.

When it comes to electric scooters, the Boosted Rev confirms it.

It is not the most popular scooter out there, but it is the most popular one in the high-end price range.

I’ve owned one for 4 months now and I believe that the price is more than justified.

This is the complete review of the Boosted Rev:

  • ordering the Boosted Rev is a simple, smooth process
  • unboxing and assembling it is a dream
  • with its signature acceleration/braking wheel, riding the Boosted Rev is a unique, simple yet rich experience
  • this is a true high-quality scooter – after 4 months and 1300 kilometers, no part has budged, no screw is loose, nothing has gone wrong
  • it is one of the few scooters with three braking systems – regenerative, mechanical, and rear-fender foot systems
  • Boosted Rev looks so polished, it is the iPhone of scooters
  • this is one of the few scooters that is truly waterproof, with an IP rating of IPX7, I’ve ridden it through rain multiple times without any problems
  • I’ve obtained a top speed of 43 km/h, and a range of 22 kilometers
  • the 9-inch pneumatic tires provide a very comfortable ride
  • the scooter has a strong headlight, a brilliant LED screen and controls,
  • my first remark is that it weighs 21 kilograms, which makes in not so portable
  • my second remark is that the app could use some improvement

All-in-all, this is an amazing high-end scooter that I can warmly recommend to anyone.

Here are all the reasons why.

Unboxing and assembly

The Boosted Rev arrived in a slick, clean-looking box. It packed a serious weight at 30 kg (66.5 lbs).

Opening it reminded me of unpacking a new iPhone for some reason, very exclusive, classy feel to the whole experience.

The following parts are included in the package:

  • scooter
  • handlebars
  • user manual
  • 1 year warranty
  • power charger
  • 2 inner tubes

Unpack it by removing the box clips. Don’t throw them away, as you may need them if you need to ship back the product.

The assembly process is very simple.

As with almost every other scooter in the world, you insert the handlebar into the steering tube. Press the wire inside the tube too, make sure it goes all in and doesn’t stick out.

Turn the handlebars until headlight faces forward.

Hold the rear fender down and press the handlebar downwards until you hear a click, which means you’ve locked it down in place.

While holding the handlebar down, use the hex key that arrived in the box to tighten the bolts near the headlight. Tighten them to the max, until there is no wiggling between the tube and the handlebar.

Finally, press down on the rear fender to release the handlebar so that you can unlock it. Lift the handlebar until the tube is straight, and then press the latch on the tube up to lock it.

Tutorial – assembling the Boosted Rev

Your scooter is now fully assembled. You end up looking at a remarkable, obviously high-quality, high-end device. My friend jokingly said that if James Bond ever had a scooter, this one would be it.

It’s possible that your scooter arrives partially charged, so you can turn it on and start playing right away. You can check the battery by quickly pressing the power button.

If your battery is at a low level (at one bar), plug in your charger and charge it to full, otherwise ride your scooter until the battery gets almost empty and then plug in the charger.

Learning the ropes

Hold the power button for half a second to turn the scooter on, and hold it for two seconds to turn it off.

Driving the Boosted Rev is a different experience than riding any other scooter.

The wheel on the right handle is used for both acceleration and braking. Rolling the wheel towards the plus icon (towards you) will accelerate your scooter, and rolling it towards the minus icon (away from you) will activate the electric brake.

While technically you can start from a full stop, starting with a kick is both easier for gaining some momentum and better for the battery.

For many first-timers, this process is a little unusual and it can take some getting used to. I went through it as well – I’ve mostly ridden Xiaomis or Razors, and I needed a few minutes to get the hang of the new throttle method.

But! After a few days of riding this way, it feels like I can’t even imagine going back to the old way of driving.

Again, I have to compare the experience to that one of using an iPhone. Making the transition from an Android to an iPhone felt strange at first, but after a few days you can’t understand why things haven’t always been that way.

Day to day use of the Boosted Rev

I used my scooter mostly for my home-work commute, and I must say this scooter is good for commuting.

I live and work in Madrid, Spain. My commute to work downtown is almost 6 km (3.7 miles). This means that almost every working day, and some days on the weekend, I go back and forth for about 25-30 minutes in each direction.

On top of that, the rides to my girlfriend’s home take 10 minutes each way, and I always use it when shopping.

Which means, I drive this thing a lot!

Over the course of 4 months, I have accrued over 1300 kilometers (800 miles)!.

I’m excited to report that the Boosted Rev hasn’t budged in this period.

Not a single screw is loose, not a part goes wiggling, and I can’t even remember hearing any sound of it except the low-volume, almost hypnotic hum when driving. No screeches, no squeaks, no scratchings. Nothing.

Granted, I’ve been a very loving, diligent, care-taking owner.

I go out of my way to avoid bumps and holes, I’ve only been through rough terrain for testing it out.

The only times my scooter has had any harder impacts was one time when I had to turn sharply into an elevated pavement, and another time when I bumped it with a chair at home.

Also, I charge it once or twice every day without exception, otherwise I couldn’t be able to use it for such long rides.

In the first month of using the Boosted Rev, I carried the charger with me to work and back home every day. Once I realized that I will be using it for a long time, I bought a second charger that I just keep in my office.

I inspect and clean the scooter regularly and thoroughly (with an almost unhealthy level of obsession I must admit).

So it’s not a surprise that it looks like brand-new, even after four months of frequent use.

Even more importantly, it feels brand-new as well!

The ride has remained steady, smooth and easy for the whole time.

It has a very low center of gravity, which when coupled with its robust, reliable weight, provides a very solid ride, almost like gliding.

The scooter has no suspensions, but the big, air-filled tires almost eliminate the need for them. I’ve tried about a dozen other scooters and I can easily say that none had a more comfortable, bump-free, rattle-free ride than the Boosted Rev.

I look at my Boosted Rev as an investment. True, I did pay a lot of money for it, but it has proven more than worth it so far. If I make sure I take proper care of it, I know it will serve me for a lot, lot longer.

Boosted Rev is bigger than most scooters, but it still fits easily into the trunk of my car. I have a 2012 Toyota Corolla (which I’ve barely touched since I got the scooter).

We get some amount of rain here, so there were a few opportunities for me to see how the Boosted Rev will perform in moist environments. Apart from the generally more slippery roads, nothing went wrong.

Keep in mind though, that the company recommends against driving in the rain. I try to follow that recommendation, but sometimes I don’t. The scooter is water-proof, but I still don’t want to take unnecessary risks.

Even more important, the company doesn’t cover water damage with the warranty. So it’s really a smart move to avoid riding in the rain.

Is the Boosted Rev waterproof?

Unlike most commercial scooters that are only rated IP54 for ingress protection, the Boosted Rev has the much more water-resistant rating of IPX7.

This means that it can be fully emerged in water up to 1 meter deep, for as long as 30 minutes, and still continue to work properly after you take it out.

So yes, the Boosted Rev is truly water-proof, not merely water-resistant as most other scooters. Both the mechanics and the electronics should continue to function properly even after heavy exposure to water.

Still, should you throw it in your pool and get it back half an hour later just for fun? I wouldn’t recommend it.

The company doesn’t cover water damage with the warranty, and it still includes a clause in the manual warning that large amounts of water may damage the electronics.

Can I ride the Boosted Rev in the rain or snow?

You can ride the Boosted Rev in both heavy rain and snow and be very confident that no harm will come to it. It is rated IPX7, which means it’s truly waterproof, and rain won’t damage it at all.

I’ve been through rain and puddles of water multiple times and there have never been any issues, everything continues to work perfectly.

However, I avoid doing so when I can. It’s just better to be safe. The company also warns against riding on wet or icy surfaces, but that’s more because those terrains are slippery and less because the scooter can suffer water damage.

Maximum speed

The advertised maximum speed is 39 km/h (24 m/h).

That is already more than most of the commercial scooters can achieve.

Of course, I wanted to test this out a bit and see if it holds true.

I weigh about 92 kg (203 lbs).

On a flat road, I did manage to hit 43 km/h (27 m/h), but not more. I was not disappointed since most scooters can actually go a few km/h faster than what they advertise.

I also tested the max speed going downhill, and then I hit 45 km/h (28 m/h). That also exceeded the advertised speed (I don’t know why that was important to me, but it was and I’m glad that it did 🙂 ).

Boosted Rev weight limit

The Boosted Rev can carry up to a 113.4 kg (250 lb) as per the manual.

However, it looked so tough and sturdy that I believed it can easily carry more. So I decided to do a little test.

I asked my girlfriend to hop on the scooter with me so that we can cross over the weight limit and see how it performs under pressure.

I weighed at about 75 kg (165 lb) then. I know it’s not polite to talk about a girl’s weight, but this is science so we have no choice – my girlfriend weighed at about 58 kg (128 lb).

That was a total of 133 kg (293 lb) of load on the board, which was about 20 kg (43 lb) above the recommended limit.

While this was just an amateur experiment that only provides anecdotal evidence, I must say that it seemed to make very little difference. The scooter still moved very fast, probably at about 80-90% capacity if I had to give an estimate.

The maximum speed we were able to achieve was 36 km/h (22.4 m/h).

This means that the scooter’s performance did take a toll, but it still got the job done in the end.

Maximum range

The maximum range that you are supposed to get with the Boosted Rev is 35 km (22 miles). That is under ideal conditions, meaning flat riding surface, no wind, speed of 9.6 km/h (6 m/h), and a rider weighing 73 kg (185 lb).

Of course, I had to test this one as well.

However, I couldn’t find a suitable place to replicate conditions close to the ideal ones. So I had to work with what I got.

On a day off, I decided to start from my home, and go for a regular ride through the city until I come close to battery exhaustion.

I rode in mode 2, which is supposed to provide a balance between speed and range. I tried to stay at about 25 km/h (15.5 m/h), but of course I couldn’t do that the whole time.

It was 10 AM on a Tuesday, which meant that the streets were not very busy. Still, there were turns, traffic, pedestrians, vehicles and other obstacles in my way that forced me to stop every now and then.

I chose not to use the regenerative brake so that I get clearer results. I only used the mechanical disc brake.

After two hours of almost constant riding, my battery was close to drained. I had achieved a range of 22 km (13.6 miles).

While this is kinda far from the advertised max range, keep in mind that the conditions were very, very far from the ideal ones used for testing. I’m sure that if testing on a flat road with no obstacles, the range will be much higher. When I find a way to test the range in better conditions, I will update this post with the new information.

Going uphill

The Boosted Rev having the best performance in multiple categories out of all the scooters I’ve tried may be becoming a common thread throughout this review. But it’s true.

The Boosted Rev handles climbing the best out of all the scooters I’ve tried so far. It just eats up those hills without a second thought.

Going uphill is even possible in mode 1, which is the slowest mode of all. Even in mode 1, you get a top speed of about 14 km/h (9 m/h).

When you’re in mode 2 or 3, going uphill is even faster.

Testing the Boosted Rev uphill

Difficult terrains

I must say that I love my Boosted Rev too much to drive it through grass or dirt or cobblestone too often. That is also the official recommendation of Boosted, and I believe it’s wise to adhere to it.

However, I did try it out for the purposes of doing a complete review.

I went through a grass surface in the park a few times (max speed of 15 km/h), a dirt road in the park too (also max speed of 15 km/h), and on a cobblestone road (max speed of 10 km/h).

Naturally, the ride was much less stable than on a paved road.

But compared to other scooters, it was a dream. The Boosted Rev’s low center of gravity, hard build and great mass, as well as its huge pneumatic tires, made those rides as steady as they could be. The handlebars barely even moved on the grass and dirt terrain, and I only felt medium-strong vibrations in my feet.

Driving at night

In the last month, I’ve been enjoying night rides a lot. There’s a lot less traffic, and cruising through the street feels like, well, freedom.

The experience is both fun and safe, since the headlight is very strong, and the brake light signals your position to those behind you.

There is one thing to keep in mind though – driving with the headlight on will drain your battery faster.

Who is the Boosted Rev for?

The short, simple answer is that the Boosted Rev is for anyone who wants to buy a high-quality, high-performance, premium-grade scooter that will truly serve as a means of transport that can be relied upon.

The real, long answer is a bit more complicated.

I would love to say that the Boosted Rev electric scooter is for everybody.

And I do believe that anyone who has an interest in scooters deserves to try it out at least, and experience the joy of owning it if possible.

Reality is, the Boosted Rev is not a cheap product and it will be outside of the price range for many people.

Still, I would urge anyone that looks to spend up to $1000 – $1200 on a scooter, to manage an extra few hundred dollars and go for the Boosted Rev.

The reason is simple: you will get a travel companion for life, and you will never think twice. I know I’m milking this analogy too much at this point, but buying a Boosted Rev is really like buying an iPhone – you are getting the best product that money can buy.

Instead of buying a Razor or a Ninebot and having it break down after two weeks, or even worse, arrive in a non-working state, the Boosted Rev will be the last scooter you will need to buy.

The Boosted Rev is a high-quality transportation vehicle. Boosted is a premium brand and they don’t put out junk on the market – their products go years without a single glitch.

You will get a 1 year warranty, which you will likely not have to use.

Just check out the section below about what the fans of Boosted Rev are saying (and their devotion to the product). You don’t build that kind of trust with a mediocre product.

Price

The price of the Boosted Rev will be around $1600 (€1475 at the time of writing this).

Of course, the price will depend a lot on your country or region, the shipping costs, and whether you choose to get some additional accessories or equipment.

Is the Boosted Rev worth it?

That is, of course, subjective to your own tastes, needs, and financial situation.

If you are looking to buy a real transportation device that will last you a long time and won’t leave you on the road, it is a great investment. It will set you back an extra few hundred dollars, but they will likely pay off themselves over the years with no repair fees, and stress-free rides and commutes.

Also, if you haven’t been satisfied with a previous lower-end scooter you’ve owned, the Boosted Rev will probably fit your needs perfectly. It is often the choice of people who have owned a cheaper scooter before and have been through lots of pain with it.

If you’re not sure you’ll be passionate about an electric scooter a week from now, or if you’ve never tried a scooter before, honestly, the Boosted Rev may not be your best bet. Rent a shared scooter, have some fun with those first and see how you feel. If you have a friend with a Boosted Rev, ask her or him to borrow it to you for a few days and try it out. It is a big purchase, and you should know what you’re getting yourself into. Chances are though, you will fall in love with the Boosted Rev eventually.

Also, if you are very limited with your budget, there are other options out there. But be aware that if you do decide to spend a little extra on this scooter, you probably won’t regret it.

Availability

The best way to get the Boosted Rev is through their store.

They currently ship to the US, Canada, Australia, and most of Europe, and are planning to expand that.

If they don’t ship to your country or region, you can contact them and ask if they will ship there soon, or what’s the best alternative way for you to get a Boosted Rev.

Design

Ok, I promise not to compare the Boosted Rev to an iPhone again.

But it is a beautiful, masterfully made product, with a big accent on looking modern, smooth and durable.

If you’ve only seen other regular scooters and it’s your first time seeing a Boosted Dev, you will find it looks like a professional athlete standing next to a regular Joe.

It is a big, tough, powerful-looking machine, but it still has style, almost like it has pride in its lines.

All matte black with small grey and white details, it is the definition of strong elegance.

Made out of custom made, vehicle-grade industrial aluminum and forged metals, it feels just… right! It feels like a product you will love.

Just excellent craftsmanship all around.

Dual motors

Aah, probably the best part about the Boosted Rev.

This baby has not one, but two, vehicle-grade dual-drive hub motors, one in each wheel.

Having two motors in a scooter provides it with much greater torque, greatly improving acceleration, turning, and braking.

Each is 750 Watts, making the total power of the Boosted Rev 1.5 kW.

That is an insane amount of power! Just to compare, the Xiaomi M365 Pro has a total of 600 Watts at max. That’s more than twice the power!

That’s the secret behind Boosted Rev’s ability to pack such a punch and reach speeds of up to 40 km/h, and accelerate from 0 to 30 km/h in just 4.1 seconds!

How long does Boosted Rev take to charge?

The custom-made, anti-propagation, multi-cell battery takes a little more than 3 hours to charge from 0 to 100%.

I only fully drained it once, just so that I can fully charge it and see exactly how long it takes. It took mine 3 hours and 13 minutes. I’ve only had the scooter for a week at that point.

Brakes

There are three ways to brake with the Boosted Rev:

  • the electronic, regenerative brake on the throttle wheel
  • the cable and disc brake at the rear wheel activated by the lever or the left handle
  • the rear wheel foot-pressed mechanical brake

The electronic brake is by far the most useful one, and also the easiest to use. It was the one I used most of the time (I sometimes used the brake lever if I needed to brake sooner, and I barely if ever used the foot-pressed brake).

But having two more failsafe, mechanical braking systems is what makes this scooter one of the safest ones.

The electric brake employs what is known as regenerative braking. That simply means that every time you brake, you recharge the scooter’s battery a little bit.

As per the manual, you can conserve or recharge your battery the most by braking down from higher speeds, or braking while going downhill.

This only works when braking down from 8 km/h (5 m/h). Braking when driving slower than that will not recharge the battery, and may actually end up costing a little extra power.

Kicking or coasting without using the throttle can also recharge very small amounts of power back into the battery.

One thing to note: when going downhill with a fully charged battery, attempting to use the electric brake will cause the scooter to temporarily shut down and the electric brake will not work. This happens because the battery is getting overcharged, and the scooter shuts down to prevent malfunctions.

I’ve actually experienced this a few times. Don’t panic, it’s nothing to worry about, just brake using either the disc brake or the rear fender brake and stop the scooter. Restart your scooter and drive for a while without using the electric brake. The battery will drain and you can use the regenerative brake system again.

The braking with any of the systems is very smooth. The company markets the braking as “on a dime”, but I wouldn’t really describe it as such.

However, I consider that to be a plus, since braking dead in place may cause you to fall off your scooter. Friends with scooters that have brakes this strong, or have tightened their brakes too much, have told me that this happens a lot. Not very fun.

Tires

Another distinct feature of the Boosted Rev – the huge, wide, pneumatic 9 inch (23 cm) rubber tires are what makes the ride so fun and enjoyable.

The tires do the job of suspension. The scooter has no suspension mechanism, but in my experience, I don’t think it really needs one unless you are really going through rough terrains.

I did have a flat once, which I must say caught me off guard. The tires seemed so thick that I thought nothing could puncture them.

I was wrong. I got distracted and didn’t notice the huge pieces of broken glass ahead of me. I just heard a loud pop and then the noise of the front rim grinding against the road.

The warranty doesn’t cover flat tires, so I had to get a spare out of my own pocket. Replacing it myself was a bit of a chore, but I also enjoyed getting my hands dirty a little.

Lights

The headlight, while not very big, is very strong.

As I mentioned, I frequently drove at night in the last month. The headlight radiated out at 5-6 meters at the least. Other night walkers sometimes covered their eyes when they were walking towards me.

There is a tail light as well, which is lit up when any of the brakes are activated.

Screen

The LED display on the Boosted Rev

What I love about the screen is that it is very visible on sunny days too.

The way you interact with the scooter is through the power button.

You turn the scooter on or off by holding it.

Double-pressing the button toggles the headlight.

Triple-pressing it changes the driving mode. There are three driving modes:

  • mode 1, or eco mode, is the mode for parking, familiarizing yourself with the scooter, or if you are a beginner with scooters. It has a speed limit of 19 km/h (12 m/h). It is the best mode for battery life and range.
  • mode 2, or expert mode, is the general driving mode. The speed limit is set to 29 km/h (18 km/h).
  • mode 3, or pro mode, is the fastest mode of all. The limit is the scooter’s maximum, which is almost 39 km/h (24 m/h). The tradeoff is that it also drains the battery the fastest.

The screen shows the most important things about your scooter:

  • current speed
  • battery level
  • driving mode

Control, handles, and handlebar

The handles have small bumps on them which provide a great grip.

The handlebar can turn for 180 degrees, which when coupled with the twin motors, provides you with great maneuverability. The scooter turns really nicely.

As I mentioned earlier, the accelerator/electric brake wheel is a game-changer. It is one of my favorite things about the entire scooter.

However… the wheel is actually both hard and it has small tough bumps. That does hurt your thumb after a while, and it requires it to get a little hardened. It is an area that I can see easily improved, probably by using some rubbery material.

Also, while it is a brilliant solution that gives you an easy way to control both acceleration and braking, it does take a little getting-used-to. The wheel is somewhat sensitive, which is a good thing in the long run, but not exactly beginner-friendly. Learning how to smoothly speed up and slow down may take you a few hours.

After that, you will enjoy probably the smoothest speed transitions on the market. I really like the great job Boosted have done on this, there is very little throwback when starting, and almost no inertia when braking.

Specs

These are the specifications I measured myself, which were identical to the ones in the manual:

  • Height (unfolded): 113.9 cm (45 in)
  • Height (folded): 49.9 cm (19.7 in)
  • Length: 112 cm (44.1 in)
  • Width: 61.5 cm (24.2 in)
  • Weight: 21.1 kg (46.5 lb)
  • Max rider weight: 113.4 kg (250 lb)
  • Max range: 22 miles (35.4 km) (tested on flat surface, no wind, 73°F / 23°C temperature, speed of 9.6 km/h (6 m/h) with a 73 kg (160 lb) rider)
  • Max speed: 43 km/h (27 m/h) (tested by me, flat road, weighing at 75 kg (165 lb))
  • Max climbing angle: 25 °
  • Operating temperature: 5°C – 50°C (40°F – 122°F)
  • Power: 1.5 kW
  • Battery: Lithium-ion, 370 Wh, 43.2 V
  • Battery charge time: 3 hours 13 minutes (tested by me)

As you can see, the scooter is on the heavy side. I’m not exactly a big guy, so I did have some trouble when I had to carry it around, but luckily that didn’t happen too often.

However, the weight gives it a lot of stability. And I do mean a lot! Riding one of the rentals after Boosted Rev feels like being in the middle of an earthquake.

The fact that the battery is made up of multiple cells is another great safety feature. Batteries designed like this don’t catch fire as easily. The battery is packed in an IPX7 waterproof aluminum casing.

Mobile app

The app is probably the biggest weakness of this product at the moment. It’s strange to me how a company can produce an innovative, ground-breaking product as this scooter and fail to provide a decent app for it.

I have the iPhone app, and there’s also an Android one too.

So far I’ve had trouble with the app crashing, being slow and unresponsive, taking too long to connect to the scooter, or simply failing to connect at all.

A quick glance over the reviews for both the iPhone and the Android app stores will confirm this. They have 2.7 and 2.4 stars each. That’s crazy!

Especially for a product like the Boosted Rev, which itself has a 4.9 rating (granted, the reviews are on their own website, which gives them full control over which ones they choose to display).

When the app works, it has the standard features you would expect from it:

  • firmware updates
  • displaying of scooter information
  • range estimation
  • tutorials

Hope Boosted fix their apps soon. Boosted, if you’re reading this, I’m a mobile developer myself, I’d gladly fix your apps for you for another one of your great products :).

Problems

The Boosted Rev is a remarkable product, but it’s not without flaws.

There are three issues I have.

The first one is the mass and volume of the product. At a whopping 21 kg / 46 lb, and packing a substantial bulk even when folded, it is almost impossible to carry it. Even storing it is difficult, when I keep it close to my desk at work people keep bumping into it.

However, I am aware that it is a conscious tradeoff that provides many of those amazing benefits, so there’s not much that can be done about it really. We have to live with the heaviness, possibly get a little stronger from every time we carry it around.

The second issue I have with it is the throttle wheel. While I generally love it and I think it’s a brilliant innovation, I would love for it to be a little gentler on the thumb. That would improve the experience so much more, and I’m sure it’s not a difficult thing to accomplish given how great the scooter is overall.

The final issue is the app. As I mentioned above, it is pretty bad and not fitting a product like this. This one is easily fixable.

Those are my concerns about this product. I’m not sure the weight can be drastically reduced in a future version without sacrificing some of the amazing things about the scooter, but I do hope that the other two get fixed.

What people think about the Boosted Rev

It is interesting to note how few negative reviews of the Boosted Rev are there online. Seems like nobody regrets their decision of getting one.

People who’ve got one report enjoying many of the common benefits.

Chief among them is the power they get, both in terms of how fast can they go, and how they can easily navigate hills and valleys.

But maybe even more important than that is the reliability. The Boosted Rev simply doesn’t break down. There are many users like me that have gone hundreds or even thousands of kilometers in the last few months, and report that they haven’t had even one tiny defect.

About one in every 5 users online describes it as a “tank”.

Since the Boosted company is not a huge company yet, they make sure they provide stellar customer support. People notice this and have commonly praised it throughout forums and Youtube channels.

One review stuck in my mind. A user from Finland talked about how he drove the scooter through rain and wet terrain almost all the time, and didn’t notice a glitch. He had previously owned a Ninebot ES1 and a Xiaomi M365, and they have both broken down because of water defects.

A number of users also reported that they’ve had no issues at all even though they were well over the weight limit.

A good part of the reviewers state that the Boosted Rev has been the best electric scooter they’ve ever tried by far.

Verdict

Is the Boosted Rev the best electronic scooter in the world right now?

It’s hard to tell (and I will likely be biased). It is certainly the best from all the others I’ve tried, but I’m just one guy, and there are many other scooters out there I haven’t tried.

One thing is for sure though – you will get your money’s worth.

The public has dubbed it the “best scooter money can buy“, and I agree with that statement wholeheartedly.

If you are looking for high-quality, long safe rides, peace of mind, and the last scooter you will ever buy, get the Boosted Rev.

I love electric scooters, so I decided to make a blog about them. I like doing a lot of research on various models and brands, looking for great value and performance, both through data and experience.
