Gotrax XR Ultra Electric Scooter Features and Specifications
Gotrax XR Ultra Electric Scooter is intended for everyday commuting and for leisure rides over flat and hilly terrain, preferably over paved roads.
Gotrax XR Ultra features 300W high-efficiency front hum electric motor and LG 36V 7.0Ah lithium battery, ensuring a maximum speed of 15.5 mph (~25 km/h) and a maximum range of up to 17 miles (~27 km).
Since the electric scooter weighs 27.5 pounds (~12.5 kg) and supports users up to 220 pounds (~100 kg), it is good to know that the maximum range, maximum speed, and slope climbing speed depend on the user weight and riding style.
Gotrax XR Ultra features a multifunctional console with an LED display that shows the current speed, speed modes, battery life, and headlight.
The headlight features an 8.5° beam angle and 26 feet (8 m) beam range, keeping the rider safer.
Note: For a city commuter electric scooter, it is very important to have proper front and rear lights. If You use your electric scooter at night often, consider adding stronger front white light and rear red light, just in case.
Gotrax XR Ultra features folding construction, allowing the user to quickly fold and unfold the unit. Folded unit is much easier to store or carry around.
The unit features front and rear wheels with 8.5 inches (~21.6 cm) pneumatic tires making riding comfortable over not-so-flat roads. However, the unit doesn't feature shock absorbers of any kind.
Gotrax XR Ultra comes with a dual braking system - the front wheel features an electric anti-lock brake, while the rear wheel features a classic disc brake.
Long Story Short: Gotrax XR Ultra is a very popular city commuting electric scooter - it is compact, lightweight, and offers a good range at moderate speed.
Although it can reach up to 15.5 mph and up to 17 miles, heavier users, especially on the hilly terrain should expect a shorter range with limited climb speed, when compared with the range and climb speed when used by lighter riders.
But, that is an "issue" with all electric scooters, not just this one.
