Mitchell has been fascinated by electric scooters since 2019. He began sharing his enthusiasm on his YouTube channel, “RK9 Rides,” in 2020. He joined Rider Guide in 2023, and between the two channels, he spends seven days a week riding, testing, and writing about electric scooters. He has tested dozens of models from dozens of brands and is always on the lookout for the newest and greatest scooters. His current favorite models are the Nami Klima and the NIU KQi3 Max.
Off-road scooters are all-terrain vehicles that handle dirt, hills, grass, gravel, and even sand, as well as they do pavement and smooth, flat track. After trying out hundreds of them, the Rider Guide team picked the top 5 off-road electric scooters we think are the best, and we’ve also added 3 extra ones worth mentioning.
“Asphalt is boring. It’s flat, predictable, uninteresting to look at, and doesn’t create 10 ft clouds of dust every time you mash the throttle or come screeching to a halt.” Rider Guide’s Mitchell Anderson
“Luckily, this cool stuff called dirt exists. It’s like the cool uncle of all the other riding surfaces. It’s everything that pavement wishes it was and is the most fun surface to ride on if you are looking for some extra fun on your scooter.”
If you plan on going off-road, we’re talking dirt trails, hills, grassy fields, gravel roads, or even sand; you need a reliable off road electric scooter.
To note: Off-road scooters are still excellent on-road, but the opposite isn’t necessarily true, i.e., most city scooters are not designed to handle the rugged terrain and obstacles that off-road scooters can easily navigate. For this reason, off-road scooters are also called all-terrain scooters.
How We Tested The Off-road Electric Scooters.
We looked closely at all the electric scooters in our warehouse, zeroing in on key features for top-notch off-road performance. We evaluated aspects like suspension, tire(size and Thread patterns), deck(clearance and dimensions), motor power, build quality, handlebar (height, and width), IP rating, and the overall bang for your buck.After this initial elimination round, we were left with a select group of electric scooters.
We then took these contenders to an off-road trail with varied terrains to gauge their performance. Here, we observed their real-world performance:
- How did the suspension handle both small and large bumps?
- How was the scooter’s handling and cornering capability?
- What was the take-off and braking experience like?
- Did we notice any issues in durability and build, like breakages or noises from the parts?
- How efficiently did it climb hills?
- How quickly could it complete a set course?
After these rigorous tests, a few models clearly rose to the top. These stand out as the best off-road electric scooters available, each excelling in its own unique way.
Best Off-Road Electric Scooters:Summary
Top 5 Electric Scooters For Off-road
Best Budget Off Road Electric Scooter for Adults
What Makes the Segway Ninebot MAX G2 a Good Off-Road Electric Scooter?
- Front hydraulic and rear spring suspension
- 10 by 2.5 inch pneumatic tires
- IPX5 rating
- Traction control feature
What is the cheapest off-road electric scooter? The Max G2, of course. However, with a retail price of $899, we wouldn’t exactly call it cheap. That said, relative to the other off-road scooters on our list, this is as budget as you can reliably go.
The Segway Max G2 is a single-motor scooter, but don’t write it off yet-it checks off most of our boxes for the best off-road electric scooters.
Top of that list is the scooter’s full suspension. The Segway Max G2 scooter has a hydraulic front shock plus dual adjustable spring suspension in the rear, providing a smooth and comfortable ride even on rough terrains.
The scooter also has traction control to ensure stability and grip when tearing through dirt, grass, or gravel. In addition, it prevents wheel spin and sliding on turns and hills. Traction control on the Max G2 is also handy off-road in light of the scooter’s street tires that, though holding up during testing and being better than those on some bigger scooters, aren’t the most ideal if you’re constantly going off-road.
The scooter’s build is also Segway certified , which means it’s reliable and durable enough to be taken on varying terrain. We especially love the wide, chunky handlebars that are great for stability and control. The bulletproof build is also complemented by a stem lock with minimal play that increases rider confidence on adventurous trails.
So, if you weigh below the 265 lbs max rider weight spec, have a budget under $1000, and are looking for an electric scooter that can handle light to moderate off-road commuting, there’s no better choice than the Segway Ninebot Max G2.
Best Off-Road Electric Scooter Under $2500
What Makes the Kaabo Wolf Warrior X GT a Good Off Road Electric Scooter?
- Front hydraulic and rear spring suspension
- 10 by 3.1 inch pneumatic tires with split rims
- IPX5 rating
- Ample deck space and clearance of 5.8 in
- Powerful 2,200w motors and 1680wh battery
- Agile build and relatively “low” weight
- Dual stem stability
If you’re looking for a little more power off-road but still can’t afford the $4000 price of our best off-road warrior, there’s a $2000 alternative for you, and it’s the Wolf Warrior X GT electric scooter. Kaabo has a longstanding reputation as the king of dirt trails, with the famous Wolf Warrior 11 revolutionizing the entire class. The Wolf Warrior X GT is a lighter, more agile, more modern, and more affordable offering that’s just as great (if not better) for off-road excursions.
The Wolf Warrior X GT has dual 2200 W motors with enough power to tackle steep inclines and rough terrain. That aside, the electric scooter has large hybrid knobby tires with exceptional traction off-road. And how can we forget the scooter’s dual stem setup that gives the X GT amazing stability at speed, which is a necessity given the 45.3 mph top speed.
The relatively low 86 lbs weight and nimble feel also makes it a formidable choice for adventurous riders. The suspension is adequate for almost all types of terrain, and whatever it lacks in suspension can be made up for by proper handling in the hands of a good rider. It also helps that of all the scooters we’ve tested, this has the most mountain bike-like feel with shorter, wider handlebars.
With the Wolf Warrior X GT electric scooter, you also get ample deck space, super responsive braking, smooth sinewave controllers, and a thumb throttle with significantly reduced dead zone. Together, all these attributes make this Kaabo the best off road electric scooter under $2500.
Best Purpose-Built Off-road Electric Scooter
What Makes the Okai Panther a Good All Terrain Electric Scooter?
- Front and rear hydraulic suspension
- 12 by 3.5-inch pneumatic tires
- IP55 rating
- Deck clearance of 6.5 In
- Powerful 1500 W motors
Okai makes some great electric scooters for kids, teens, and beginner riders. However, one look at the Okai Panther, their flagship performance electric scooter, and we knew it would cut our list of the best electric scooters for off-road use 2023. It costs about the same as the Wolf Warrior X GT but is built a little differently.
It’s a 96 lbs big wheel off road electric scooter (12-inch knobby wheels), which are super fun in the dirt–and the peak 3000 W power certainly doesn’t disappoint when it comes to tackling rough terrain. The Okai Panther electric scooter also boasts front and rear hydraulic suspension. The suspension is definitely on the stiffer side. However, by airing down the tires to a lower pressure, you can smooth out the ride through milder sections and guarantee a smooth ride. The Panther scooter also excels at soaking up larger bumps that would normally be jarring on other electric scooters.
The scooter’s award-winning design is both sleek and functional. The integrated structure featuring a single-piece frame is robust; it has a solid stem latch and a deck that feels a little crowded due to the swept-back handlebars but is supplemented by the scooter’s shallow-angle rear tail. Also, like the Wolf Warrior X GT, the lower-height handlebars on the Panther give you better control of the scooter while you are crouched and positioned properly.
The top speed is below the curve for its class. However, the brisk acceleration, its ability on hills, and one of the best braking distances we’ve tested guarantee a fun yet safe time outdoors. Finally, the electric scooter feels purpose-built for the outdoors but is also one of the most tech-packed scooters we’ve ever tested
Luxury Off-road Electric Scooter
What Makes the Apollo Pro a Good Off road Electric Scooter?
- Front hydraulic and rear rubber suspension
- 12 by 3 inch pneumatic tires
- IP66 rating
- Deck clearance of 6.5 In
- Powerful 2,000W motors and 1222Wh battery
What’s the best electric scooter to buy when you’re not on a budget? At the moment, the answer might very well be the Apollo Pro electric scooter—the luxury, performance scooter. It is built to do almost everything well, including riding off-road. We know that luxury and dirt don’t sound like they go hand in hand, but the Apollo Pro defies expectations.
The 7600 W peak power motors with an efficient Mach 2 controller provide the Apollo Pro with incredible acceleration and torque, making riding on and off-road a thrill. On hills, the electric scooter also excels, and we were lucky enough to have one of our units delivered with off-road tires, further enhancing traction on challenging terrain. Unfortunately, there’s no option to ship the scooter with off-road tires, so you’d have to purchase them separately for self-installation.
The Apollo Pro’s front adjustable hydraulic suspension is a dream for soaking up small and large bumps, while the rear rubber suspension delivers the right level of stiffness, regardless of weight or terrain. And though not as high as the King GTR (because nothing is), it sits a cool 6.5 inches above the ground, ensuring adequate clearance for any obstacles you might encounter.
The rest of the scooter’s build combines for a stable and reliable ride. The sturdy unibody frame; the dedicated regen braking plus Apollo Pro’s bold choice of drum brakes that will never lock up or throw you over the bars no matter how aggressively you tug on the levers; nice and wide handlebars with decent stock grips for minimal fatigue; and the solid stem latch that makes for a scooter with no flex or play even through rougher sections, all make the scooter’s $3499 price quite the steal.
Best Off-road Electric Scooter for Adults
What Makes the Kaabo Wolf King GTR a good Off-Roading Electric Scooter?
- Front and rear Hydraulic suspension
- 12 by 4 inch pneumatic tires
- IPX5 rating
- Ample deck Space and clearance of 9.3 In
- Powerful 4,000W motors and 2419Wh battery
- Dual stem Stability
- Traction control feature
Finally, the most expensive electric scooter on this list is the best one for taking off-road, and that’s the Kaabo Wolf King GTR. This monster has everything you could ever want from a dirt machine: bulletproof build, adjustable front and rear suspension, huge riding platform and rear tail, wide handlebars, and traction control.
Kaabo’s Wolf electric scooters are built to last, and they are certainly built to withstand the rigors of off-road riding. Whether you’re tackling rocky terrains or navigating through muddy trails, this scooter is designed to handle it all with ease. Kaabo’s dual stem installation also comes in handy for added stability and control while riding off-road. On top of that, the traction control is super well executed, sending power to the motor with the most traction making the scooter incredibly grounded and responsive.
The new Kaabo’s powerful 13440 W peak power motors provide exceptional torque, and the scooter came within striking distance of dethroning the NAMIs for best hill climb but settled for second best. The sinewave controllers pushing 160 A peak current ensure smooth acceleration and seamless transitions between different terrains. And it doesn’t hurt that this is the fastest electric scooter Rider Guide has tested with a 65.8 mph certified top speed.
The suspension feel is on a whole other level from anything else on this list, and it feels like it was tailor-made for this type of riding. Additionally, the super high riding platform means you never have to worry about whacking the deck on a rock or over a rise. Conversely, the lower handlebar height may not be as comfortable for taller riders. That said, if you can bypass the awkward positioning, lower bars can provide a more aerodynamic riding position for those looking to maximize speed and performance.
Regardless, install handlebar risers, or swap the bars out for taller ones, and the Kaabo Wolf King GTR is the best electric scooter for off-road riding.
Best Off Road Electric Scooters (Honorable Mentions)
Even though they didn’t make our top picks, we still have several solid scooters that deserve a nod
Best Handling Off-road Electric Scooter
What Makes the Nami Klima a Good Off-Road Scooter?
- Front and rear hydraulic suspension
- 10 by 3.5 inch pneumatic tires
- IP55 rating
- Ample deck space and clearance of 7.0 In
- Powerful 2,000W motors and 1800 Wh battery
- Sinewave controllers
Mitchell’s favorite scooter makes the list but as an honorable mention. The NAMI Klima is an interesting scooter with a ton of potential on or off-road. With its only drawback being that it comes with street tires, everything else about the Klima is begging to be set loose on some dirt, a bit of loose gravel, and a whole lot of gradient.
The NAMI Klima electric scooter has potentially the best adjustable front preload suspension and rear adjustable rebound damping. In addition, the reasonable size and 84 lbs weight of the scooter makes it easy to maneuver and handle on and off-road. The solid hand-welded frame also ensures that the Klima can take the abuse that comes with all-terrain riding.
Thanks to the dual 2000 W motors, the scooter is chock-full of power, with efficient twin 40 amp sinewave controllers. And thanks to its precise speed and handling, you can seize full advantage on rugged trails. Swap out the road tires for some all-terrain ones, and this is easily in the top 5 electric scooters for off-road use. That said, Mitchell still had a ton of fun ripping through dirt roads, even with the scooter’s street tires.
Best Performance Per Dollar Off-Road Electric Scooter
What Makes the Kaabo Wolf King GT Pro an Electric Off road Scooter?
- Front hydraulic and rear spring suspension
- 11 by 3.5 inch pneumatic tires
- IPX5 rating
- Ample deck Space and clearance of 9.0 In
- Powerful 4,000W motors and 2520Wh Battery
- Dual stem Stability
It almost feels criminal not to include the Kaabo Wolf King GT Pro in the main selection, as it has been the electric scooter for adults to beat in every category since its release. However, with the upgraded King GTR, the scooter takes a bit of a backstep. That said, Voro Motors will still sell this scooter as a cheaper alternative to the new King GTR.
Therefore, if you can’t live with the GTR’s low-lying handlebars, or you feel that you need 55 miles of range over the GTR’s 43.2 miles; if you want 1.5 ft shorter stopping distance, or you wish to return to the King GT Pro’s thumb throttle; if you prefer LG batteries over Samsung batteries, and most importantly, if you feel that the Wolf King upgrades do not warrant the $800 difference in their prices, then the King GT Pro remains a viable choice for your off-road commuter.
Best Electric Dirt Bike
Definitely not an electric scooter, but in our Rider Guide era, we’re opening up our extensive testing competence to other PEVs, one of the most noteworthy being the Solar Eclipse. The Eclipse is a high-end off-road electric dirt bike we reviewed a couple of months ago that is built for off-road riding. It’s ergonomically built, and has that high performance per dollar ratio we’ve come to anticipate from Solar’s PEVs.
Of the many things we love about the Eclipse, and there are many, is that the scooter allows for fun off-road riding courtesy of the powerful 6000 w peak power motors, the large 19-inch knobby tires, the easy twist throttle that you can hammer to a top speed of 57.8 mph; the Eclipse’s incredible hill climbing–and the fact that you can do it all while seated.

And if you’re curious about the community’s top picks or have experiences to share, head over to the comments section of our YouTube video. We’d love to hear which electric scooter revs up your off-road adventures!
What Makes a Good Off-Road Electric Scooter?
We start with, ‘Are electric scooters good off-road?’ The quick answer is yes, but not all of them are built to go off-road. Electric scooters need to meet specific requirements in order to qualify as off-road vehicles, and below, we list the most important ones.
First off, the scooter needs a good suspension system. This is essential to absorb shocks and bumps while riding on uneven terrain, ensuring a smooth and stable off-road experience.
There are 3 types of suspension found on electric scooters:
- Spring Suspension: The most basic type found in scooters, it is widely used and provides elementary shock absorption. If you’re on a budget but still want a basic level of comfort, this should be the minimum criterion when choosing an all-terrain electric scooter.
- Rubber Cartridge Suspension: A mid-range option, rubber cartridge suspensions offer a moderate level of comfort. Its main advantage is easy maintenance and the ability to be replaced without much hassle.
- Hydraulic Suspension: The crème de la crème of suspensions, hydraulic systems offer unparalleled comfort and adjustability. While they are pricier, if smoothness and customizability are your priorities, hydraulic suspension is the way to go.
The suspension also comes in two forms: Adjustable and Non-Adjustable Suspension.
Adjustable Suspensions allow riders to tweak the suspension’s tension or stiffness according to their preferences, weight, or terrain type. Adjustability ensures optimal performance and comfort.
Non-adjustable suspensions on the other hand are fixed in terms of tension or stiffness; these suspensions don’t offer customization. While they might not cater to every rider’s unique needs, they’re simpler and often more affordable.
Best Combination for Off-roading: Adjustable +Hydraulic Suspension
Electric Scooter Tires for Off-roading
Tires are the scooter’s contact point with the ground, and their quality can drastically influence the ride.
- Tread & Texture: It’s recommended to opt for knobby tires. They provide outstanding traction, especially on challenging terrains like dirt, gravel, or grass.
- Size Matters: When it comes to tire size, bigger often translates to better, especially for off-roading. A tire size of 10 inches or above is ideal as it easily rolls over obstacles, offering a smoother ride.
- Tubeless vs. Tubed: Tubeless wins for off-road scooters. Given that terrains can have sharp objects that might puncture the tire, tubeless tires handle such adversities better. If they do get a puncture, it’s typically slower to deflate and easier to repair. Furthermore, using a sealant can enhance their puncture resistance, significantly reducing the chances of a flat tire. In contrast, tubed tires lose air quickly once punctured. To fix them, you’ll need to reach and repair the inner tube, which can be a hassle.
We didn’t consider solid tires in this comparison. While they are puncture-proof, they aren’t recommended for off-road use. Their inability to absorb shocks as effectively as Pneumatic tires result in a less comfortable and bumpier ride on uneven terrains
Best Electric Scooter Off road Tires: Knobby pattern + >10 In + Tubeless
Handlebar, Stem, Deck and Throttle
- Handlebars: Ideally, handlebars should be positioned at a height that allows for a comfortable posture while riding. Equally important are the grips; they should be stable and not shift during rides, ensuring a secure grasp.
- Deck: The deck should comfortably accommodate the rider’s feet. A non-slip surface(Rubber/Grip tape) is essential to promote grip, especially during wet conditions or sudden maneuvers. For general off-road use, a deck clearance of at least 5 inches is recommended. However, for more rigorous terrains and extreme off-roading, a minimum of 6.5 inches is ideal to prevent the underside from scraping against obstacles.
- Stem: The scooter’s stem should be robust and rigid. A wobbly stem can compromise safety and the overall riding experience. Therefore, it should be free from unnecessary movements and noises. An added layer of security, like the safety pin seen on the Kaabo GTR, can be invaluable. It acts as a backup to keep the stem upright, especially if the primary latch mechanism fails.
- Throttle: Since the throttle is your primary interface to control the scooter’s speed, it should be ergonomic and comfortable to use. The choice between thumb, trigger, or twist throttles is subjective and depends on individual preferences. Ensure that the chosen type doesn’t strain your hand over extended periods of use.
When riding your electric scooter off-road, handling is very important. The terrain can be unpredictable and challenging, so good handling skills will help you navigate obstacles and maintain control over your scooter.
That said, a more nimble scooter with responsive steering will allow for quick maneuverability, making it easier to avoid potential hazards and adjust to sudden changes in the terrain. For this reason, while the power and build quality of the Dualtron X Limited seem fitting for off-road trails, the size and weight work to its detriment in more challenging terrain, as opposed to a more agile scooter like the NAMI Klima.
Moreover, specific design features can significantly enhance a scooter’s handling. Scooters like the Wolf Kings, Wolf Warriors, and the InMotion RS incorporate dual stems, a design choice that not only boosts stability but also amplifies control.
Build Quality and Durability
The expression built like a tank says it all when choosing an off road electric scooter companion. Off-road electric scooters are designed with durability and ruggedness in mind, ensuring they can withstand the toughest terrains and conditions. A few falls may be involved, and a few scrapes are definitely in the books for you when you take your scooter off-road; therefore, the vehicle’s body needs to be robust enough to handle impact and protect the internal components.
Power, Performance and Braking
Tackling rugged trails call for impeccable hill climbing, speed (for fun), uncompromised braking, and a battery that can sustain long-lasting performance. Off-road scooters require powerful motors that can work overtime to provide the necessary torque and traction for navigating through uneven surfaces and steep inclines. On the other hand, small motors are no match for the friction and resistance you will experience going up against grass trails, loose dirt roads, and hilly tracks, which usually cost you speed, and in return, stability.
On the flip side, having reliable braking capabilities is crucial for off-road riding as it allows you to react quickly to unexpected obstacles and maintain overall safety. Moreover, efficient braking also ensures that you can navigate through tight corners and maneuver around tight spaces with ease, further enhancing your off-road riding experience.
We have comprehensive performance stats on the Rider Guide Database for each scooter mentioned in this article–and for any other scooter, you might be considering that’s not mentioned.
Finally, getting an off-road scooter doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank. We have budget options on our list and many other affordable alternatives that did not make the cut. After all, we are trying to compile a list of the BEST electric scooters for off-road riding, and admittedly, the better alternatives cost a small fortune. That said, even our top 5 most expensive scooters didn’t make the list, as the price-to-value ratio is quite key in the making of these compilations. We included two of our $3500-4000 e-scooters, but we solidly believe the value you get per dollar with our entire selection is unmatched in terms of performance, durability, and features.
When you’re out on off-road adventures, you’ll face a mix of conditions like mud, dust, and water puddles. So, your electric scooter should have some protection against these. At the very least, it should have an IP rating that covers water. If you’re often on off-road trails, an IP rating for dust is also crucial to keep your scooter safe.
Traction Control and ABS
Traction control systems help maintain grip, particularly on surfaces like dirt and gravel roads, by automatically adjusting the scooter’s motor power output. This prevents wheel spin and ensures that the scooter remains stable, even when navigating slippery or uneven ground.
Taking it a step further, some scooter manufacturers have integrated Anti-lock Braking Systems (ABS) into their designs. ABS in electric scooters prevents the wheels from locking up during hard braking. This is crucial as a locked wheel can lead to skids, making it challenging for riders to maintain control. With ABS, riders can apply brakes confidently, knowing they’ll have a shortened stopping distance without the risk of skidding.
These features are extras, and while they’re nice to have, they shouldn’t be the only reason you choose a scooter. But, having them can make you feel safer and more confident when riding.

Can you Ride an Off-road Electric Scooter on the Road?
Yes, you can. Off road electric scooters can be ridden on paved roads, and they often perform quite well, similar to their on-road counterparts. However, the knobby tires typically found on them might wear out faster on smooth surfaces and could be a bit noisier compared to regular street tires.
How Much Does an Off-road Electric Scooter Cost?
The price of off road electric scooters varies widely based on features, performance, and build quality. They can range from $1,000 to as high as $5,000. However, if you’re looking for a scooter that can reliably handle off-road terrains without breaking the bank, you can expect to spend around $2,000 for a decent model.
Can You Ride an Electric Scooter on Grass, Sand, or Gravel?
Yes, you can ride an electric scooter on these terrains with some considerations:
Grass and Gravel: Riding on these surfaces is achievable if your scooter is equipped with knobby tires to provide the needed traction.A good ground clearance is also beneficial to prevent the scooter from getting stuck or scraping the ground. When on these surfaces, it’s important to be gentle with the throttle to avoid wheel spin and to brake gradually to prevent sliding.
Sand: Riding on light, hard-packed sand is manageable, and you can treat the scooter similarly to how you would on wet grass or gravel(light throttle and cautious braking).
However, deep or loose sand can be challenging. Sand is fine-grained and can easily find its way into small openings on the scooter, such as in the deck, motor, and other components. This can cause abrasive damage, block important parts, and even lead to overheating. As a result, it’s generally not advised to ride your scooter in deep sand. If you must, taking precautions like covering vulnerable parts can help, but the risk remains.
