The Kaabo Wolf King GT is proof that Kaabo engineers don’t believe in excess. Their recently-released Wolf King GT is faster and more powerful than any Kaabo preceding it. We’ve been testing this scooter for the past week — here’s why we think it’s so special.
The Wolf King GT Is Proof Kaabo Engineers Don’t Believe In Excess
As designs grow more powerful, engineers have to address important questions such as where do you put a 25% larger battery?
Well, in the deck, of course.
But the controllers live there … so where should they go?
Encase them in a waterproof housing and bolt them onto the outside of the scooter. Better for heat management anyway.
Now we can run them at an even higher current and make the Wolf King GT go even faster.
This seems to be the “go fast or go home” attitude of Kaabo engineers and frankly … we don’t mind it.
Kaabo Wolf King GT Basics
The Kaabo Wolf King GT is Kaabo’s next iteration of its ultra-popular Wolf line. It weighs 115 lbs, has a claimed top speed of 62 mph and 70 miles of range.
Its giant 72 V, 2520 wh LG battery supplies dual 50 A controllers.
The powertrain puts out 8000 watts of peak power.
Key Features of the Wolf King GT
The GT has a tubular frame, front hydraulic fork, a big deck, a loud horn, and crazy bright headlights like previous Wolves.
The double stem and folding mechanism remain rock solid. The giant, rubberized deck is comfortable and remains unchanged.
Improvements Address Shortcomings Of Previous Models
All Wolf King GTs ship with Kaabo’s stronger, forged aluminum fork tips.
The King GT ships with a legit IPX5 rating, meaning that it’s ok to splash on this scooter.
Though much of the frame remains the same, the Wolf GT’s handlebars are wider.
Faster, More Powerful Than Any Previous Wolf (obviously)
The Wolf King GT is juiced up with a 72-volt sinewave controller that can dump 50 amps into each motor. The controller has moved to the stem for both cooling and space reasons.
Previous models would suffer from power roll-off or even shut down when driving high loads for prolonged durations.
The throttle has significant dead space initially but infinitely smooth power control once you get past this.
We are still processing GPS data, but it looks like the Wolf GT may become the fastest production scooter ever (see our current leaderboard here).
Our Take On The Wolf King GT
The big story about the Kaabo Wolf King GT is power plus control.
Yes — the Wolf King GT is another record-setting scooter from Kaabo. It tops all previous Wolves in terms of specs and power.
However, it’s also the most controllable Wolf out there.
You can easily make precision power adjustments thanks to its sinewave controllers and thumb throttle. Though sinewave control isn’t some insanely new technology (or particularly sophisticated), we’re only starting to see it appear on scooters.
At top speed, stability is exquisite. It probably doesn’t hurt that they loaded an extra 10 lbs onto the forks. Nothing increases stability better than increasing the moment of inertia of the thing you want to slow down.
