    Mokwheel Scoria Review: E-Bike Overview

    The Mokwheel Scoria is a 20-inch powerhouse that offers serious versatility for adventures and activities that require more hauling capacity. The Scoria comes with a rear rack, and there’s an optional extended rack and front cargo basket for bringing along extra supplies and gear.

    Like the Mokwheel Basalt, this bike is fitted with the brand’s power station technology that allows it to take advantage of an optional 1000-watt inverter and foldable solar panels for on-the-go recharging.

    The Scoria is powered by a 750W hub motor at the rear that puts out an impressive 90Nm of torque, while the 48V 19.6Ah removable battery neatly integrated into the bike’s frame provides up to 80 miles of range per charge.

    The step-through frame design of the Scoria allows for a much lower saddle height, so it’s really easy to mount and dismount. The 20-inch by 4-inch CHAOYANG tires offer outstanding versatility on a variety of terrain, while the 180mm TEKTRO hydraulic brakes provide outstanding stopping power — which is definitely needed on a heavy bike like this.

    On the handlebars, the full-color LCD display provides the rider with all the information they need, and there are 5 levels of pedal assistance plus a thumb throttle for extra power.

    Size and Weight

    The Mokwheel Scoria is a heavy bike at 79 pounds. Unlike some of the brand’s other models, it only comes in one size, and it’s recommended for riders between 4’8″ and 6’0″. The Scoria has a 16″ standover height, 45″ wheelbase, and the saddle can be adjusted from 30″ to 36″.

    Performance and Ride

    The Mokwheel Scoria is an electrifyingly powerful fat tire e-bike. Its 750W rear hub motor gives it plenty of juice for mowing over bumps and navigating challenging terrain with ease. It’s a bike that’s well-suited for riders of all experience levels, too, thanks to its easy-to-turn and very stable character.

    To that end, the Scoria is a great option for e-bike deliveries as well as other urban tasks, as its modular rack system and low-step frame offer easy access to the bike for loading up those packages or whatever other materials need moving.

    The Scoria is set up with a smooth-shifting SHIMANO drivetrain, and its 5-level PAS system and thumb throttle provide predictable power delivery and make it easy to dial in just the right amount of juice to get up and over any terrain. All in all, the Scoria is a powerful and efficient fat tire bike that’s a ton of fun on pavement and off.

    Build Quality

    Mokwheel is known for building solid bikes and the Scoria is no exception. Its construction is well-built with good attention to detail and the bundle of components is impressive. The Scoria arrives well-packed and mostly pre-assembled from the factory, which means setup time is minimal thanks to the easy-to-follow instructions provided by Mokwheel.

    Appearance

    The Mokwheel Scoria is an attention-getting e-bike with a utilitarian vibe. Its 20-inch fat tires and custom mag wheels are paired with front and rear fenders and a cargo rack, announcing to passers-by that it’s ready to work — or play. We appreciate the polished, premium appearance that this bike has, with its handsome frame that neatly integrates the battery into the forward-facing side of the downtube. The bike also features a nice cable management system. As for colorways, the Mokwheel Scoria is available in four eye-catching options: Firebrick, Grey, White, and Green.

    Included Accessories & Optional Add-ons

    The Mokwheel Scoria is a very well-equipped, full-featured ride. In the box you’ll find front and rear mudguards, a rear cargo rack, an assembly wrench, and a tire pump.

    Mokwheel also sells a growing range of replacement parts and accessories. We highly recommend the optional 1000W inverter and folding solar panel kit, as this will allow you to quickly recharge your ride on the go (using nothing more than sunlight). If you’re planning on using the bike for shopping runs or hauling gear, we would also recommend the extended rack kit as well as the front cargo basket.

    Warranty & Customer Support

    Mokwheel bikes come with a generous 2-year warranty that will cover customers in the event of a manufacturing defect (an upgrade to the 1-year warranty typically provided by consumer-direct e-bike brands). The brand also extends a 15-day money-back guarantee to its customers, although the return shipping costs and a possible 5% restocking fee are the responsibility of the customer.

    Customer service is yet another area where Mokwheel shines. The brand’s friendly and responsive customer service team is available to answer questions or provide solutions to any problems customers may encounter, and Mokwheel can be contacted via telephone, live chat, or email.

    We always test the responsiveness of each brand’s customer support team during our e-bike review process and we were pleasantly surprised to find that Mokwheel actually picks up the telephone when you call. Our emails are also quickly replied to within just a few hours…

    Final Thoughts

    I’m genuinely impressed and pleased with the Mokwheel Scoria, and I encourage anyone looking for a well-built 20-inch fat tire e-bike in the sub-$2,000 price range to seriously consider this one as a top option.

    I’m especially fond of the bike’s power station functionality, which provides creators with an easy way to recharge drones and other camera gear while on the go. The Scoria is also perfect for overnight camping trips, allowing riders to charge up the massive battery using only sunlight.

    This bike is really able to be enjoyed by riders of all ages and levels of experience. Seniors will appreciate its user-friendly step-through frame and the fact that it’s just so easy to get on and off this bike. And if you’re looking to increase the bike’s capacity and versatility, Mokwheel has extended racks and cargo baskets available for easy and relatively affordable customization. Add all of this up and you have a rig that we would classify as one of the best 20-inch fat tire e-bikes to come around in quite a while.
