At CES in Las Vegas, the Chinese company Okai has presented a sleek electric scooter which, unlike most of its competitors, can also be operated on rough terrain thanks to its off-road features and full suspension.

Electric scooters are an integral part of most modern cities around the world. As an easily accessible device for electric mobility, scooters can be rented from sharing companies by the minute, but an increasing number of people opts to outright purchase their own electric scooter such as the Segway Ninebot (from US$649 on Amazon). However, riders who are looking for a scooter which can not only be operated on smooth city surfaces like concrete and asphalt, but also on rougher terrain, should check out a recently revealed full suspension scooter by the Chinese company Okai.

The Okai ES800 is a proper off-road scooter with a full suspension and a lot of electric power which supposedly allows it to reach a top speed of up to 37 miles per hour. Thanks to a 1,800W (approximately 2.4 horsepower) electric motor, steep climbs of up to 35 percent should be no problem for the electric scooter, while its large 12-inch wheels should provide a more comfortable ride on rough surfaces.

Due to the aforementioned off-road specs, the Okai ES800 is about 30 percent heavier than ordinary electric scooters for urban settings, but the huge 980 Wh battery should still provide an acceptable range per charge, which the manufacturer has not yet specified. Furthermore, Okai has yet to reveal any details regarding the pricing, availability and release date of the ES800 electric off-road scooter. Due to its fairly high top speed, the Okai ES800 would not be street legal in some regions around the world, but the release of country-specific configurations with lower but legal top speeds is certainly in the realm of possibilities.

My fascination for technology goes back a long way to the Pentium II era. Modding, overclocking and treasuring computer hardware has since become an integral part of my life. As a student, I further developed a keen interest in mobile technologies that can make the stressful college life so much easier. After I fell in love with the creation of digital content while working in a marketing position, I now scour the web to bring you the most exciting topics in the world of tech. Outside the office, I’m particularly passionate about motorsports and mountain biking.
