INOKIM Quick 4 Review
by Tina McDowell
The team at Gear Junkie asked me if I would be willing to do a short review of the new INOKIM Quick 4 – I happily agreed to assist.
I was looking around for an electric scooter to commute to and from work on. I live in Devonport but everyday I commute into work in Auckland City. I really wanted a scooter that I could take into work and get me to the office once everything goes back to a bit more normal after the COVID situations settles down.
So I was looking for a scooter that would cover a couple of very important points for me:
- Pretty portable and foldable (given that I have to go in and out of a lift in the city and also on the Ferry).
- Something that had a little bit of power and able to manage some degree of hills. I certainly wasn’t interested in a “Power scooter” at all – but at least something that was able to give me some oomph when I needed it.
- A scooter that is stylish.
I was first looking at the Xiaomi and Segway Scooters,
and although they looked well made they also lacked what I call style. Really, many of the scooters I see out in the market look quite similar to the Xiaomi ones and I think they all just copy each other, tbh. I wanted to have something with a little bit of spark.
So after looking around further I happened to click on a link to INOKIM’s product on Gear Junkie. Right away I liked the designs, very different and refreshing – especially with the Vibrant colours. After speaking to the guys at Gear Junkie I eventually settled on the INOKIM Quick 4 as the best option for me. It seemed to fit my needs well – not too heavy, easy to use (this is my first ever scooter apart from using the LIME scooters).
The other couple of things that they mentioned – which I liked – was that the larger 10” air-filled tires are really beneficial, especially for driving over small bumps in the road without effecting my steering ability. Also, the Quick 4 scooter has both front and rear suspension – much better for smoothing out my daily ride. If you have every ridden on the sharing scooters in your city with no suspension you will know exactly what I mean – the vibrations go right through the whole scooter into your arms and body. Not very good! So it was music to my ears that the INOKIM Quick 4 did have suspension. I find that the ride on my scooter is really nice and smooth and love it!
The other reason that prompted me to choose the Quick 4 was the 350W Power Output. Anything under that is a little under-powered I have come to work out now. The Quick 4 can get me moving at 30 kph quite quickly IF I need it. Normally I move along at about 25 kph.
The brakes on the Quick 4 are more than suitable for my needs. One different store tried to tell me that I needed Hydraulic Brakes on my scooter and tried to sell me into a $3K model! Not for me.
In summary, I can say that the INOKIM Quick 4 is really the perfect scooter for me and love just love zipping along on it! The service I received from Gear Junkie was really good. They didn’t mind answering my silly questions & really, this is why I ended up going with them! It gave me confidence that they would assist if I needed it later on.
