Turboant X7 Pro Electric Scooter Review

The Turboant X7 Pro Electric Scooter is the latest version in the modern trend of electric scooters. It is a modest e-scooter that comes equipped with one, moderately powerful 360-watt motor that provides the reasonable acceleration, maximum speed, and temperate incline capabilities.

The Turboant X7 Pro model is sturdy and is composed of various special killer features that we really like: detachable battery pack, flat-free pneumatic tires, and comfortable upright riding position.

Turboant X7 Pro: Features and Specifications

Starting with the design, the Turboant X7 Pro falls in the former category, with a comparably notable layout. It boasts the same general look featured by most premium e scooters- though the incline of the steering column is relatively more relaxed.

The overall frame is solid but hollow on the inside. The angled components between the tech and column appear to be fairly substantial and are made with solid metal. However, they’re only sturdy enough to accommodate a maximum weight of 275 lbs.

Best Features

Perhaps the most striking feature of the Turboant X7 Pro is the detachable 36V battery pack. This means you can simply remove and charge the battery without having to drag the whole thing with you.

Unlike other e scooters, the X7 Pro has its battery packed in the steering column. This strategic battery position allows for maximum posture height on the X7 Pro electric scooter.

This does, however, make the stem a little too thick to grab one-handed, especially when you need to walk downstairs or pass an object.

Moreover, leaving your Turboant X7 Pro unattended will never be an option because the battery compartment is not secured in any invincible way.

The standing space offered by the Turboant X7 Pro deck measures 18 x 5.8 (inches). The deck is elevated 3.5 inches off the ground and is coated with a textured rubber finish to enhance your shoes' grip, especially in wet conditions.

The Turboant X7 Pro features the following Pro-settings that can be customized via the display console. These include cruise control, kick start, and speed units.

·       P0: Miles per hour/Kilometers per hour (mph/kph)

·       P1: Cruise control (On/Off)

·       P2: Kick start (On/Off)

The model’s center of gravity is significantly higher, but the balance aspect is not bad at all. You don’t have to worry about falling left or right because less weight is on the deck.

The whole thing feels perfectly useful on the road, and the riding position is slightly unique due to the relatively taller stem.

The cockpit incorporates a bright central LED console with basic simple controls for power, lights, mode, and adjusting the said P-settings.

It has an extra-tight steering column plus a wide surface area atop the stem, where the display is, making it possible to drive one-handed—something we don’t recommend, yet doable anyway.

The 350-watt electric motor is fairly quiet and persistent, even under high torque conditions. The tubeless pneumatic tyres provide a cushioned ride, especially in the absence of any other shock absorbency.

The X7 features both front and rear built-in LED lights. The lighting system is not the best or something exceptional, especially if you walk in the dark regularly, but is perfectly usable and decent.

Who it’s best for?

One thing worth mentioning is the limited radius of the steering.

The steering extent on the X7 Pro is essential for novice riders. It cuts the ability of the front tire from getting parallel to the rest of the scooter. However, that’s still an advantage because extreme steering range would pose a much higher risk of accidents due to falling.

Coming down to measurements and portability, the Turboant X7 Pro still excels. It has a folding mechanism that’s pretty resonant compared to other premium e scooters. And it remains solid, with less-zero play while folded. So no need for additional dampers or spacers when storing.

Most of its major design features work well towards a compact form factor while folded, making it ideal for persons with limited spaces. Yet, it provides a more comfortable and accommodative riding position when unfolded.

Who it’s not for?

Obviously, the Turboant X7 Pro is not meant for individuals above 275 lbs.

However, our biggest gripe stems from the acceleration curve and resultant maximum speed; they are tuned majorly for beginners.

Turboant advertises a typical speed of 20 mph, which is a bit generous compared to the 15 mph life number reported by most X7 riders.

Therefore, as far as speed is concerned, especially to those interested in exciting riding speeds, the Turboant X7 Pro is certainly not the best.

Also, due to the accessible battery comportment, the X7 might not be the best electric scooter to pack in any chancy or conspicuous place.

Here is a quick rundown of the pros and cons for the Turboant X7 Pro.

Pros

·       A comfortable upright riding position makes it ideal for taller riders.

·       Swappable battery pack design

·       Sturdy folding and locking mechanism

·       Great display to keep track of your current performance

·       Great maximum weight capacity of 275 lbs

·       Comfortable and accommodative deck size

·       The steering section has a limited turning radius, thus sturdy and secure.

·       Easy to undo handlebars for enhanced portability

·       Pneumatic tubed tires eliminate internal friction and untimely tube wearing off.

Cons

·       The Turboant X7 Pro is a bit heavier, coming in at 33 lbs.

·       A higher center of gravity, less stability, especially during turns

·       Reliable electric motor, but certainly not the best for speed-oriented riders.

Think The Turboant X7 Pro is For You?

 

Summary

All aspects considered, the Turboant X7 Pro Electric Scooter is a solid product with no actual major hitches. The credible built quality, great ride comfort, integrated speedo pneumatic tires, and removable battery design are among the X7 Pro “killer features.” 

The maximum outward speed of 20 mph is arguably dubious since the acceleration curve does involve some compromises in actual capacity. Still, this creates a desirable trait to promote the X7 Pro as an interesting proposition within the modern scooter niche.
