This is the full Inokim Quick 3 Super review, that reveals everything about this scooter, the good and the bad. In many ways, it can be seen as it inherited the crown from the previous champion in this category, the now discontinued Boosted Rev. Unlike that scooter, the Inokim Quick 3 Super is not going anywhere. Things can only get better.
The Inokim Quick 3 Super focuses on premium quality, great design, and long lifespan.
This is not a budget scooter. In many ways, it is the exact opposite of that.
The premium quality comes at a premium price. While the specs and the performances will not be quite proportional to the price, the craftsmanship, the attention to detail, and the finishing touches most certainly will.
This is the right scooter for anyone looking for durability, quality, and brand recognition.
Where to buy the Inokim Quick 3 Super + from?
Brand and manufacturing
Inokim has been an established electric scooter designer and manufacturer for years now, operating since 2009.
The main designer and engineer, Nimrod Sapir, is one of the best people in the business when it comes to scooter design. His scooters have won numerous awards.
Inokim usually upgrades its scooter models constantly. The Inokim Quick 3 Super+ is the latest edition of this scooter model.
It is almost like their luxury item, even though it’s not their most expensive one. The focus on quality cannot be overstated here.
The Inokim Quick 3 Super arrives in an elegant black box.
The package includes:
- tire pump
The scooter comes fully assembled. You only need to charge it, adjust the brakes, and optionally check the settings, before you start riding.
This will depend on your retailer, but you should get at least 1 year of warranty on all parts, including the battery (which usually has only 6 months of warranty). As usual, the warranty is void if the damage is from water.
Folding and unfolding
The folding mechanism is controlled by a locking pin located where the deck and the stem meet.
To unfold, you just pull the pin and straighten the stem until the pin locks in place. The handlebars are also foldable, and you need to extend and lock them in position as well. Finally, you open the quick release and set the handlebar at your desired height.
Unfolding is the same process as above, but in reverse.
As mentioned, you will need to adjust the brakes the first time you unpack and unfold the scooter.
Basics and ride experience
You start the scooter by kicking.
The ride is very enjoyable and fun, and you will feel safe and comfortable the entire time. You have to option to use the cruise control system for fully carefree rides.
The scooter is very easy to ride, and is the perfect choice for beginners looking for a higher-quality choice.
The aluminum deck has anti-skid grip tapes on it, making it impossible for you to slip during wet weather.
The 1000 Watts peak power motor will give you great acceleration and torque. The 10-inch pneumatic tires make sure the ride is comfortable, very few bumps and holes will be felt.
As you ride, you will only hear the very gentle, barely noticeable “zzzzzz”-ing of the motor.
Inokim models can boast some of the longest lifespans, and lowest defect rates out of all scooter models. The same applies to the Inokim Quick 3 Super, users have reported riding it for more than 6.000 miles without a hiccup.
The only maintenance your scooter will need is making sure the tires are sufficiently pumped. They should have an air pressure of 40 psi.
While not necessary, it is also a good idea to run a quick check on the critical latches, screws, nuts, and bolts, and make sure they are properly tightened.
Inokim provides very good support for their users, and you can contact them if you have any questions or something doesn’t look or feel right.
Design and build
This is a very sturdy, very robust scooter. There are no loose ends, and no budget cuts. Everything is top-notch.
It is made from aircraft-grade aluminum alloy, with many parts being proprietary and produced in-house.
You can choose between many colors. Besides the classic black or white backgrounds, you can also pick the dark orange, or the signature light blue, which seems to be the most frequent user choice.
No matter what color you pick as the main color, your scooter will proudly carry the original Inokim logo, giving you great brand recognition.
The scooter comes with a water protection rating of IPX4, making it resistant to water splashes from all angles, and well equipped to handle some rainy weather (although you should still avoid riding in the rain).
Besides the handlebar height being adjustable, which is great for tall riders among other things, the scooter’s handlebars are also foldable. That makes it occupy very little space when folded, and very easy to carry.
When folded, you can easily grab the scooter with the carrying handle on the side of its deck.
Further, the scooter weighs only just 36 lbs / 16.5 kg, which also gives it lots of portability points. While not as light as the lightest scooters today, it definitely is in the next portability class.
Controls and screen
As usual with Inokim models, the throttle button will be the very cool, signature square button that you press with your thumb on the right handlebar. It is one of the easiest acceleration mechanisms in existence, and doesn’t give you cramps or pain in your hand even after long rides.
The digital LCD screen, which is right above it, will show you the:
- current speed
- cruise control
- speed mode
- battery level
- trip distance
- error status
To the right of the screen are the power button, and the plus and minus buttons for setting everything as per your needs.
Motor, speed, and acceleration
Compared to the other, lighter Inokim models, the Quick 3 Super has noticeably better acceleration. Hence, the name Quick.
The top speed of the Inokim Quick 3 Super is 18 mph / 30 kmh.
I’m pretty confident that’s just a firmware limitation.
The brushless hub motor of the Inokim Quick 3 Super, which lives in the rear wheel, has 400 Watts of real power, and up to 1000 Watts of peak power. Usually, that gives scooters speeds of up to 31 mph / 50 kmh, even scooters of much poorer quality.
Anyway, no firmware hacks and customizations seem to exist today, so the limit remains 18 mph / 30 kmh.
The scooter has a weight capacity of 265 lbs / 120 kg.
The powerful motor, however, does provide this scooter with strong climbing features.
Officially, it can conquer slopes of 15 degrees.
Unofficially, users have reported very little trouble when climbing moderate hills, and only noticing degraded performance on very steep hills.
Battery and range
The Inokim Quick Super 3 has a very cool range of 28 mi / 45 km on a single charge.
That range is provided by its 48 Volts, 13 Ampere-hours battery, with a capacity of 624 Watt-hours. The battery is LG Lithium-Ion, which means it is of the highest possible quality.
The scooter takes about 6.5 hours to fully charge. This is one of its main weak points in my opinion, as it’s kind of long for a scooter of this type.
The cost of charging this scooter during off-peak hours is 3 cents in the US, 6 pennies in Canada, 15 pence in the UK, and 10 cents in the EU (on average). During peak hours, it costs 10 cents in the US, 8 pennies in Canada, 19 pence in the UK, and 15 cents in the EU.
This scooter comes with 10-inch pneumatic standard tires, prepared for everyday urban environments.
They are installed on the proprietary aluminum-alloy Myway wheels, used only in Inokim scooters.
The scooter has very sturdy mudguards that won’t budge even after long distances covered. Given how this detail is one of the most common reasons for user complaints, it serves the show the manufacturer’s dedication to building a great all-round, high-quality scooter.
The scooter has two brakes, activated by the left and right levers on the handlebars.
The front brake uses a braking pad system, while the rear uses a mechanical disk system.
Both can be adjusted to your needs.
The Inokim Quick 3 Super has 2 lights. The light in the front is a reflective LED headlight, and the one in the back is a red light that serves as a brake light.
The scooter is very well prepared for night rides, as the lights are very strong and make the scooter easily noticeable by other traffic participants.
Accessories and gear
One must-have item for the Inokim Quick 3 Super is a safe scooter helmet. You don’t have to sacrifice all of your comfort for safety, as the scooter is not that powerful, but still, a plain old bike helmet won’t be enough, and a good half-helmet like the ILM Half Helmet should be a good middle ground.
The Inokim Quick 3 Super comes with the option to add a seat, which is one of my favorite customizations. Additionally, you can add many other accessories to it, including many generic ones, as the scooter doesn’t have many non-standard parts and can support a lot of the usual cheap accessories. See my guide on the best electric scooter accessories for some cool and useful ideas.
If you plan on leaving your scooter outside, you will want to get a higher-quality scooter lock, as Inokim scooters are known for their quality and may be easily recognized by thieves and become their primary targets. The Via Velo U-lock is a reasonable balance between security, quality, and price, and it’s probably one of the best locks for the Inokim Quick 3 Super.
Inokim Quick 3 Super vs Inokim Quick 3 Hero
The Hero version, also known as the standard version, is the less performant version of the Inokim Quick 3.
I wouldn’t recommend it over the Super version, as the performances are already not that strong in Super, let alone in the Hero version. The only upside is you will save a few hundred, but in my opinion, that’s totally not worth it in this case.
Who should get the Inokim Quick 3 Super?
This is the perfect scooter for anyone looking for their first, but also their last commuter scooter.
Inokim is known for especially high quality, high durability models, and you can be pretty confident this scooter will serve you well for many years.
While its performances are not off the charts, they will be more than enough for the typical commute or hobby ride.
You will pay a more premium price maybe, but you will get unrivaled quality.
Where to buy the Inokim Quick 3 Super + from?
Who should not get the Inokim Quick 3?
Obviously, if you want a more powerful scooter, you will have to look elsewhere.
One great offer from Inokim as well is the Inokim OXO model, which is a true power scooter, but has the same quality as this scooter as well. You can read the full Inokim OXO review, or you can check it out at the UrbanMachina store for US and Canada deliveries, and at the FluidFreeRide store for UK, Europe, Australia, and pretty much everywhere else in the world.
Aside from that, this scooter doesn’t meet you halfway if your budget is lower. For that scenario, if you need a budget commuter, I would recommend the Kugoo S1 Pro. You can read the full Kugoo S1 Pro review, or check it out at GeekBuying.
