Cushman Scooter Review

Red scooter parked

What happens when modern technology meets 100-year-old classic design in a scooter? Answer: The Cushman Scooter 2. The Cushman Scooter Company was started in 1903 in Lincoln, Nebraska. In recent years, the classic scooter has returned to the marketplace to great applause.

The back-story is a good one. Jack Chalabian loved his Cushman scooter as a kid delivering newspapers in Los Angeles. After exhaustive research, design & development, and American engineers getting on board, the Cushman Scooter 2 was born. Chalabian's dream of a better design with a larger engine for speed, a better braking system, and dual shocks brought American craftsmanship alive again in the Cushman Scooter 2.

What Is a Cushman Scooter?

One of the most popular, prolific vehicles built to help move people from here to there in the world is the scooter. Scooters are especially popular throughout Asia and Europe, and recently there has been an uptick in the US scooter market. People's concerns over global warming and greenhouse gas emissions may be one reason for the uptick since scooters are highly efficient. The good news is that consumers can now purchase a durable, American-made scooter that is long on tradition: the Cushman Scooter 2. With fuel efficiency averaging 70 miles per gallon (MPG), this is a workhorse scooter and a classic favorite.

Product Specs

There are currently three models of the Cushman Scooter 2 you can choose from: the Eagle, the Deluxe Highlander, and the Step-Thru. Each has features that may suit your specific needs and wants in a scooter. The main differences between these models are in their weight, gas tank size, and overall styles. Your choice may depend on whether you want your scooter to look good on the roadways or need it for hauling goods around town.

We loved the features on the Cushman Scooter 2, which include the classic 14HP overhead cam engine. Stopping the scooter smoothly is simple with front and rear suspension Brembo disc brakes. The electric start is well placed for easy stop-and-go functionality. We all want practical safety features on our vehicles, and the Cushman Scooter 2 does not disappoint. The Cushman 2 offers the perfect, easy on/off turn signal design as well

The aesthetics of a custom VDO speedometer just gave us good feelings as we looked at it during our test rides. The all-steel frame reminded us of the 1960s. Remember when many goods and products were made of steel? The Cushman Scooter 2 even has elegant chrome mirrors with the crowning glory of a chrome headlight with both high-beam and low-beam settings. Other engineering aspects of this machine, such as the variable speed clutch and drive, jackshaft, and chain-driven rear sprocket complete this stellar, compact and efficient scooter.

The extra power will help you on your journey whether going up hills or into deep valleys. The larger magnets that run the magnetic drive provide more torque for higher top speeds while the hydraulic brake system provides excellent stability and confidence. We were happy with this machine's 48v 14Ah silicon battery that ran the bike for around 25 miles. We could get all of our errands accomplished before we had to recharge the battery. 
 
The beauty of this scooter is that you can just plug it into any wall outlet, and in 4 to 8 hours you are ready to hit the road. Another excellent feature is the steel frame. It is strong and slim. In addition, GigaByke took the extra step of using a matte-finish, electrostatic, auto grade, rust-protective paint to keep your bike rust-free.
 
We also noted an upgraded sidekick stand and a center kickstand so that nothing gets left hanging or tipsy on the bike when you park.

Conclusion​

Our Ru​nners-Up

The GigaByke Groove 750 Watt e-Bike provides good performance with extra power you need for uphill and rugged riding. The GigaByke now has larger magnets that run the magnetic drive this is what gives you that extra torque for those top speeds. The hydraulic brake system/disc brake is a great stabilizer while driving.  Batteries matter and the 48v 14Ah Silicon Battery kept it's power till around 25 miles.

We found the ease of the plug-and-go system on the GigaByke very cool. Just plug it into any wall outlet, and in 4 to 8 hours you are ready to hit the road. The sturdy steel frame provided stability too. It was important to have the powerful LED headlights and taillights and turn signals. We assigned an overall 4-star rating for this innovative, non-gas-powered transportation option.

The Three-Wheel Bonzai Moped is the most unique-looking bike of our contenders. We enjoyed the fact that it gets 90 MPG so we can get all of our errands done without interruption. The Bonzai can run up to 45 mph, and the electric key ignition was a nice feature.

RoadRunner iScooters come in a great variety of scooters sizes and styles. The prices for iScooters allow almost any consumer a chance to own a scooter. This friendly price point is one of the iScooter's biggest advantages.

The C​ushman

We assigned the Cushman scooter we reviewed five stars because of its high-quality features. During testing, we were impressed with the 14 horsepower overhead cam engine that can get you up to 55 MPH. There are not that many scooters out there that can offer that kind of speed. The front and rear Brembo disc brakes added a safety feature that did not get lost on us while we out on our test drives. The easy stop and go functionality of the electric start was perfect. That kill switch adds a layer of security you might like on all your vehicles. This is a classic, high-end ride that leads this scooter category in our view.

How Does the Genesis Electric Skateboard Stack Up to the Competition?

Genesis Stinger Electric Skateboard - Green Wheels

Image via Amazon

To provide our readers with the most realistic idea of the quality of the Genesis electric skateboard, we tracked down some of their main competition in the same price range and compared boards. Here is what we found.

Atom Longboards Atom All-Terrain Longboard - 39", Woody
  • Wheels: MBS 100mm x 65mm all-terrain wheels cast with 78a super-high-rebound urethane for a perfect blend of on-road speed and off-road traction

  • Bearings: rubber shielded ABEC 9 with high speed lubricant
  • Grip-tape: Super coarse 46 grit off-road grip

The first electric skateboard we stacked up against the Genesis boards was the Atom. This board comes with dual 700-watt hub motors hidden in the wheels, making the board appear more like a classic board, similar to the Stinger. Also identical to the Genesis boards, it utilizes a lithium-ion battery and is capable of speeds up to 20 mph. The board comes with a wireless remote that runs on two AAA batteries. It has two-speed modes a battery power indicator.

All-in-all, the board is equal to the quality of the Genesis boards in many aspects, excluding its 12-mile max range.

The next board we compared the Genesis line to was the second generation D3M by Koowheel. This board comes with a max speed of nearly 25 mph, a bit faster than the top rates of the Genesis boards. The board’s deck consists of soft seven-ply Canadian maple wood. Its power source is two 350W motors and a 3.5-pound lithium-ion battery. The board comes with PU wheels.

Also, the board comes with a 100 percent money back guarantee so that you can shop without fear. In comparison to the Genesis boards, the D3M second-generation Atom board holds its weight in general even though it has poorer quality wheels and deck materials.

  • BUY WITH CONFIDENCE - SKATEBOLT electric skateboards have passed quality authentications of EMC, FCC, LVD,and ROHS. We provide 6-month warranty for the defective longboard and have set up after-sales service center in LA. Professional engineer there always ready for support.

The final board that we measured up against the Genesis boards was the SKATEBOLT S3. Another high-performance board with top speeds of nearly 20 mph. It comes with two different speed modes, ABS, and regenerative brakes. The board's remote control comes with an LED indicator light for battery levels, and its deck consists of the same eight-ply Canadian maple as the Genesis boards. It also has a very similar LG lithium-ion battery with a capacity of 36V and 5000mAh. This board's max range is undetermined.

The company has a reputable customer service department and will replace any merchandise you receive which is damaged. Overall, the SKATEBOLT is similar to, but not quite the same as, the high-quality boards that the Genesis products are.

How We Reviewed

We found most of the basic features and specifications for these boards on Amazon and their official websites. Furthermore, customer reviews on sites such as Amazon mainly informed our opinions. When reviewing these products, we chose to focus on aspects such as safety, performance, quality, specifications, and fun. Price was also a major consideration in our reviews along with skill level. Some of these boards are more appropriate for advanced riders while others are better for beginners.

How Does It Compare to Other Electric Skateboards?

Of course, there are a lot of electric skateboards on the market right now. How does the Koowheel electric skateboard compare to the competition?

Boosted Mini X


Boosted Mini X Electric Skateboard
  • Exhilarating top speeds of 20 mph gets you there faster
  • Climb the steepest hills of your commute without breaking a sweat
  • 3 ride modes specifically tuned to the Boosted mini. Brakes- Regenerative Brakes.Power- 1,000 Watts
  • Deep dish composite deck keeps you Locked in. App - iOS and Android
  • Go up to 14 miles with the extended range battery. Charge Time-1 hour 45 minutes

The Boosted Mini X is a small electric skateboard that’s easy to store. It’s only 29.5 inches long, which is quite a bit smaller than most electric skateboards. It features Lunar 80mm wheels and a deep dish composite deck that keeps you locked in. It has a maximum speed of 20 miles per hour and easily goes up inclines of 20 degrees. You also get a battery life of fourteen miles. This board comes with three different ride modes.

Customers love how well the Boosted Mini X performs. In particular, they love how comfortable it is and how well it handles. On the downside, there have been several complaints about its noise. A few customers had some trouble with the motors. It’s also a bit of a rough ride. You’re going to feel every bump as you’re riding.

This price is somewhat more expensive than the Koowheel electric skateboard. However, it also performs better for the most part. The Koowheel electric skateboard is great if you’re shopping on a budget, but the Boosted Mini X is a good alternative if you have some extra money to spend.

Evolve Bamboo GT Series


The Evolve Bamboo GT Series is on the cutting edge of electric skateboard technology. Its 3000w motors give it a maximum speed of 26 miles per hour. It’s capable of going 21 miles on a single charge and can accelerate up 25-degree inclines. This board is seven-ply Canadian maple and two-ply bamboo. It also features 306 mm Black GT Super Carve trucks. The deck is 38 inches long.

Customers enjoyed the Evolve Bamboo GT Series for how lightweight it is and for how easy it is to ride. They also love it for its speed, which is comparable to the Koowheel electric skateboard. Most of the complaints were relatively minor. Some customers had difficulty with its wheels. They also feel it doesn’t go as far as the manufacturers claim.

The biggest complaint was about its price. That’s clearly going to be a major investment. It’s certainly an amazing skateboard, but this will be much too expensive for most people. It’s worth considering if you have the money for it. Otherwise, you’re better off sticking with the Koowheel electric skateboard.

The BLITZART Huracane is an excellent electric skateboard for those shopping on a budget. It’s six-ply maple wood sandwiched between two layers of bamboo. It features a 350W hub motor that gives it a maximum speed of 17 miles per hour. It’s also capable of going up to 10 miles on a single charge. You get two different riding speeds depending on whether you’re a beginner or an advanced rider. This board is 38 inches long.

Many customers say this is a great board for beginners. While some boards might be a bit intimidating for new riders, this is an excellent product for those who are new to skateboarding. It’s also quiet and affordable. Unfortunately, the quality is a potential problem. Several customers have had difficulties with the motor and the batteries. The remote also has a bad habit of desynchronizing.

It’s actually capable of competing with the Koowheel electric skateboard in terms of price. This is practically a steal when it comes to electric skateboards. It’s a good choice if you don’t want to spend a lot of money. However, keep in mind you might have problems with it later. 

Acton Blink Lite V2


The Acton Blink Lite V2 is one of the lightest electric skateboards in the world. It weighs only 7.7 pounds. It also has a 450W hub motor and a maximum speed of 10 miles per hour. This board can go five miles on a single charge and can accelerate up a hill with an eight-degree incline. It’s made from Canadian maple wood and has a 27.5-inch length. Unfortunately, it also has a 180-pound weight limit. This essentially limits its use to children and lighter riders.

Many customers consider this to be an excellent electric skateboard for kids and beginners. Its low speed makes it very safe, and it’s also very affordable. However, advanced riders found it to be much too slow for their preferences. Also, like most cheaper electric skateboards, it tends to have problems with its motor and batteries. The remote also has trouble synchronizing sometimes.

The Acton Blink Lite V2  is a good choice if you’re a parent that wants to get a board for your child or a teen new to the sport but a person who’s been skateboarding for a while isn’t going to get much out of it. 

Pros and Cons

Pros

  • It’s cheap
  • It’s fast
  • It has a strong battery life
  • It’s fun!

Cons

  • The battery doesn’t always charge
  • The wheels have been known to come unscrewed

The Koowheel electric skateboard has a lot going for it. It rides well, and it doesn’t cost a lot of money. It also goes as fast as many boards that are much more expensive. Unfortunately, the quality is a serious question mark. The wheels coming unscrewed are a major problem, and it can be potentially dangerous. The fact that so many customers had trouble with the batteries charging is also an issue.

So How Cool or Uncool Is the Koowheel?

The Koowheel electric skateboard is a decent product, but its problems are difficult to overlook. When you get right down to it, your decision will largely come down to price. For an electric skateboard of this quality, it’s actually very affordable. However, you might want to invest in something a little more expensive if you have some extra money to spend.

Make sure you take necessary precautions if you do decide to buy this product. Again, make sure you inspect it thoroughly before riding. And keep in mind that many customers have used it without any problems. In these cases, the Koowheel electric skateboard is as good as any other on the market.
