Turboant X7 Pro Review: At a Glance
The Turboant X7 Pro electric scooter has several features suitable for adult beginners, younger riders, and regular urban commuters. You can set out to your destination and arrive without hassles, thanks to its prolonged battery life, standard design, and resilient tires.
Moreover, it can move at a top speed of 20 mph (32 km/h) and covers a maximum range of 30 miles (48 km). Also, with a 10 Ah battery capacity, you’ll have enough juice to ride at the max speed on a single charge.
And while the top speed of the Turboant X7 may not be as impressive as other premium scooters on the market, it’s a bang for the buck!
- Possesses a triple braking system
- Pneumatic tires
- Has three modes for speed
- Foldable and portable
- Has a cruise control function
- Robust design
- Removable battery
- Only one color option is available
- No suspension
Acceleration and Top Speed
According to manufacturers, the top speed of the Turboant X7 Pro is 20 mph (32 km/h). However, this can vary depending on the battery charge, riding conditions, and the rider’s weight.
Also, it has a three-speed mode, which makes it versatile and flexible. For example, the Beginner mode (6 mph) works well for kids and adult riders trying to get familiar with the electric scooter. And when you’re commuting for long distances and need to conserve energy, the Eco mode (10 mph) is at your service.
However, high-speed lovers who want to max out the X7 Pro’s top speed can use the Sports mode (20 mph).
In addition, Turboant added a cruise control feature that jumps in when the responsive throttle is held down for about 10 seconds at a constant speed.
The Turboant X7 Pro climbs an average incline without breaking a sweat. However, the steeper the hill, the faster it’ll lose power. And we found that the X7 Pro started to struggle when moving against slopes steeper than 10-15 degrees.
Even though it has a maximum climbing capacity of 15 degrees, factors like the battery level and the rider’s weight also influence the electric scooter’s ability to climb a hill. It’s worth mentioning that the scooter can carry a max load of 275 lb (125 kg).
So, you shouldn’t expect the X7 Pro to throw its hat in the ring with other expensive e-scooters built for high-power output.
Range and Battery
According to manufacturers, the Turboant X7 Pro’s range is between 20-30 miles (30-48 km). However, it may be influenced by battery percentage, riding style, riding mode, and terrain.
Therefore, it’s necessary to keep an eye on the LED display of your scooter to know your battery level while riding. And you can use the Eco mode to conserve battery for a long, pleasant riding experience.
Moreover, the X7 Pro’s 10 Ah lithium-ion detachable battery pack beats the odds. At a single charge, you can enjoy up to 30 miles. Isn’t that great?
Unlike most scooters, the removable battery of the Turboant X7 Pro is found along the foldable stem. The battery’s position is quite beneficial as you can charge the scooter’s detachable battery anywhere convenient. However, it may take some time to get used to it when carrying the scooter around.
When it comes to portability, the electric scooter understood the assignment! It only weighs 33 lbs, and you can fold it easily in three quick steps for storage at home or in your car.
In addition, the handlebar is thicker than what you’d find on most scooters due to the battery’s position. This feature can make carrying the X7 Pro around a bit awkward.
Like most budget scooters, the Turboant X7 Pro comes with a 36 V, 350 W motor right out of the box. You also have an ergonomically designed throttle on one of its handlebars to fire it up!
In addition, the motor requires little or no maintenance, and it’s protected from water splashes and debris by a fender in the front wheel.
Build Quality and Construction
Unlike most manufacturers who compromise on build quality and construction for affordability, the Turboant X7 Pro seems to check the boxes for good build quality and construction while maintaining its budget-friendly price.
The scooter’s frame is made from an aluminum alloy, which is typical of portable scooters within its price range. This frame material gives the electric scooter a sturdy and robust build, making it heavier than more expensive electric scooters made from carbon fiber.
In addition, the X7 Pro’s stem is well-built as it carries the battery pack, thereby shifting most of the electric scooter’s weight to the front. Also, due to its sturdy construction, it lacks the rattle noticeable on most models with almost the same price.
Finally, when the X7 Pro is in a stationary position, there’s a solid stand to support it.
The deck of the Turboant X7 Pro has higher ground clearance, thanks to the position of the scooter’s battery. This interesting feature enables a commuter to navigate through rough terrain without the risk of damaging the scooter’s battery underside.
Also, the grippy silicone rubber lining of the battery-free deck comes in handy when riding to ensure a good grip of the rider’s feet. In addition, the deck boasts enough room to keep an adult’s feet comfortable.
Although you may not consider the relevance of good tires as a new rider going to the market for an electric scooter, they play an essential part in the general ride quality.
The X7 Pro is equipped with 10-inch tires capable of traversing most types of terrains. These tires are large enough to withstand heavy loads, and they’re good shock absorbers when you’re on a bumpy ride!
However, this scooter lacks a suspension system. Although it relies on its pneumatic tires for shock absorption, a suspension system is more reliable on bumpy roads.
One of Turboant’s priorities is safety, and that’s why it invested a lot in the braking system of the X7 Pro. With the multiple braking systems of this scooter, you can come to a total halt even when riding at maximum speed.
It has a triple braking mechanism comprising a rear disc brake, a rear foot brake, and a regenerative electronic braking system. This trio offers an incredible braking distance of 16.4 ft (5 m).
Moreover, the hand-operated brake installed on the handlebar controls the rear disc brake. This braking option allows you to slow down before coming to a stop.
There’s also a rear fender foot brake that’s activated when you step on the fender near the rear wheel. This is the X7 Pro’s emergency brake, and it’s useful when you need to come to an abrupt stop.
Similar to most electric scooters, the Turboant X7 Pro has a 3 W LED headlight that ensures visibility while riding at night. However, this headlight may not be bright enough for poorly lit settings. In such a situation, you may have to explore other LED lights options.
In addition, there are reflective lights on the rear and front tires of the scooter. The scooter’s rear also has a rear brake light for traffic purposes.
Controls and Display
A digital LED display is present on the scooter’s cockpit at the middle of the handlebar, which shows the current working status of the scooter.
The display shows essential information such as speed, available battery charge, speed mode, etc. Each speed mode has a specific color that’ll help you identify it at a glance.
In addition, between the right handgrip and LED display is an all-in-one throttle, which serves as the control center. From there, you can power the scooter on, turn on the headlight, select a mode, or activate the cruise control.
The scooter has an IPX4 water-resistant rating which means it can withstand different splashes, including low-pressure jets. In combination with the grippy deck, you can ride this water-resistant scooter in light showers.
However, like most electric scooters, it’s recommended to ride the X7 Pro in dry conditions and avoid heavy rainfalls.
Warranty and Customer Support
Purchasing this foldable scooter offers you a six-month warranty that covers mechanical defects. And registering on the Turboant website seven days after purchase will extend your warranty by another six months.
In addition, you can apply for a repair, brand new replacement, or refund if a defect happens within seven days after delivery. However, you can only apply for a repair or new replacement if you realize a defect 30 days later.
Moreover, if you find a defect after 30 days and upwards within the warranty period, Turboant will offer you repair guide videos or the defective product’s parts.
It’s essential to note that the warranty doesn’t include defects due to wear and tear, improper use, or depleted batteries. In addition, you must present a valid ID and date of delivery to enjoy the warranty benefits.
Lastly, Turboant’s customer care service is available for 24 hours via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And you’ll get a response usually within a day.
Overall, the X7 Pro is one of the best electric scooters within its price range. It’s a good option for regular urban commuters looking for a durable and portable scooter at an affordable price.
However, it lacks suspension and doesn’t have the best top speed.
