Well, it's too bad he's been testing 20" wheel version. I don't speak French but it looks to me like the 20" wheels. Clearly, it needs 24" wheels which will have inevitably longer swingarm. The same thing happened with Freerider ... sort of. First, they offered it in 20" version. Which is fine for people who look for something small, super light ... they don't expect it to be used in serious conditions. Just riding for fun ... Then they came up with 24"/24" set-up with longer swingarm ... vast improvement from geometry standpoint. After that they started offering 26"/24" which to me is the way to go, especially when combined with more agressive and durable tires.

I think the 20" Challenger would still be OK to play around house or nearby park. I do it on OSET 20R ... and it's full of compromises as well. But quite frankly they don't bother me for the 35mins quick stints. But I am personally more interested in 24" version Challenger, especially due to the cost being 1/2 of something like EM Sport, Dragonfly or GasGas electric offerings. They will surely be more capable, no questions about it, but way beyond what I could justify for my next purchase.

Very cool. Will have to check those out.

Hopefully, the distribution will be much better this time around. I am up here in Canada and it felt like pulling tees just to get see one in flesh or ride a demo.

Also, why these 19/17 size bikes are not even mentioned at the company's website? Perhaps, not quite ready yet?

the 17/19 epure is the same bike as the adult epure, just with smaller wheels for teens or a shorter rider.. that means the bike can "grow" with the rider by adding the full size wheels as the rider gets bigger.. (found this info on their facebook, likely will be added to their website soon;)

First Looks at the new Kuberg Off Road Scooter :

"This new 50mph scooter is freaking sick so much torque so much fun.

This is a prototype, the final product will come with a pneumatic seat.."

That looks like a no nosense trials bike. Good choice of fork.. Manitou Dorado. Very minimal frame with combination foot platform/skid plate and a very small looking rear wheel to give exceptional torque. In my opinion putting a seat on it just dilutes it from the hardcore raw application of riding over large girth logs,, which it should be meant for. :D :thumb:

I like it a lot but needs a larger diameter rear wheel for obstacle roll over .. if you want more torque add amps not a small wheel (for off-road)..

I agree, the rear wheel looks unmatched to the front ... Sort of like, the Freerider with 24" MTB and small 20" NC wheel. I loved riding that bike, but it was a website machine to the point that it was creating problems ... The geometry was just compromising on any uphill.

But maybe, the scooter name indicates something not seen before and thus don't expect conventional wheel sizes etc.

I do love the inventive nature of this company. Always thinking outside of the box.

I must say, after having a brief chance to try both, Kuberg Challenger and the new scooter, back to back, both are very interesting bikes. In very different ways.
