Until not so long ago, to have a good electric scooter off-road, you had to spend a lot of money. Urban, with the launch of the Drift Gobi S, has been shooting the cards and now, what was once the privilege of a few, is now within the reach of many people.
The Drift Gobi S is the latest and perhaps the best Urban brand scooter, and in a way, an improvement over its predecessor, the Drift Gobi. At a very affordable price, the Drift Gobi S will try to establish itself in the market as the first affordable electric cross scooter.
The scooter arrives in a large package, already assembled. The only work required is the installation of the seat and the front spotlight, a quick operation thanks to the 2 Allen keys and the wrench supplied.
The electric scooter has a strong and sturdy appearance, thanks to the frame made of industrial grade aluminum alloy, which can support up to 200 kg of weight. This feature has unfortunately some disadvantages, since with its 23 kg, the Urban Drift Gobi S is one of the heaviest electric scooters reviewed by us.
The Urban Drift Gobi S is powered by a 1600W Dual Motor. This electric scooter has a front-wheel drive that gives a great climbing capacity (about 20-25%), which makes it an excellent choice for those who live in the hills or mountains. The flat acceleration really impressed us, so be careful when dosing the accelerator because this scooter is a real splinter.
