Turboant X7 Max electric scooter features

The Turboant X7 is a line of electric scooters that has been gaining popularity in recent years. The latest model, the X7 Max, is a top-of-the-line product that offers riders all the bells and whistles they could want. This includes a max speed of 20 mph, a max range of 32 miles, and a detachable battery. Other features include disc and electronic braking, an innovative LCD display, and built-in safety features that make it perfect for riders of all ages.

The new TurboAnt X7 Max is an upgrade to their previous X7 Pro model. It doesn’t have a huge change in overall specs. It is a completely new design. It has improvements over almost every part of the scooter.

Price

The TurboAnt X7 Max is available directly from TurboAnt. It retails for $599.98. It is available for an introductory discount of $459.98.

Specifications

The range is 32 miles. This is an increase of 2 miles from the X7 Pro. The top speed is 20mph. The max climbing angle is 15 degrees. The max rider weight is 275 lbs. All unchanged from the X7 Pro. Ground clearance is 5.3 inches. The scooter has IPX4 water resistance so you can use it on wet days. It weights 34.2 lbs. This is only a slight increase from the 33 lb weight of the TurboAnt X7 Pro.

Detachable battery

The X7 Max has a 10ah removable battery located in the stem. The battery is detachable and can be easily swapped for another battery to further increase the range. The battery can be charged both on and off the scooter giving you lots of options. You can keep an extra battery fully charged without mounting it to the scooter for charging.

Motor

The X7 Max is powered by a new more efficient 350 watt motor located in the front hub. This gives plenty of power to get the scooter up to its top speed for most riders.

Dual braking system

This electric scooter has an electronic braking system on the front wheel and a disc brake on the rear wheel. This combination has always given plenty of stopping power. The X7 Max no longer has a foot brake in the rear fender for stopping the rear wheel. We don’t miss this as most riders never use it.

10 inch pneumatic wheels

The X7 Max has 10 inch pneumatic tires with inner tubes. They give a much smoother and more comfortable ride than hard rubber tires. The larger diameter also makes the scooter smoother and more efficient than scooters with smaller 8 inch wheels.

3 Step folding

We have always liked TurboAnt’s folding system for its scooters. It is easy to use. The stem tube latches securely in both the unfolded and folded position. There is no wobble or looseness. It has the feel of a well engineered and designed system. Folding the scooter only takes a few seconds and then you are set to carry it wherever you need to go.

Drive Modes

The TurboAnt X7 Max has 3 drives modes making it good for any kind of rider. The modes are Eco, Comfort, and Sport

  • Eco Mode – This has a reduced top speed and limits the motor power. This mode maximizes the range you can get from your scooter.
  • Comfort Mode – This is a balanced mode that offers more power and acceleration than Eco mode while still giving you great range.
  • Sport Mode – This mode allows the scooter to hit its 20mph top speed. It opens up full power on the motor. This will give you the best acceleration. It will give you the best power for hill climbing or heavier riders.

Deck

The X7 Max has a 19 inch deck that is 4.7-6.7 inches wide. This is longer and wider than the X7 Pro allowing scooter riders a more comfortable stance. The deck is also higher off the ground giving you more ground clearance. It has more curvature for a more ergonomic stance. The deck is a nice improvement over the X7 Pro deck which could feel a little cramped for people with larger feet.

Control system

The X7 Max has a newly designed control system that gives the scooter more efficiency and range than the X7 Pro. It retains a lot of the look and feel of the X7 Pro controller. It has an integrated LCD display located at the top of the stem. It gives you all the information you need such as the remaining battery and speed. It is easily controlled by a couple of buttons on the orange throttle control.

Braking is controlled with a lever on the left handlebar. Throttle is controlled with a tab on the right handlebar.

The control system is very well thought out and easy to use. New scooter riders will have no trouble mastering it on their first time out. Experienced riders will appreciate the simplicity and easy to use features.

LED headlight

There is a built in 3 watt LED headlight so you can safely ride at night. It is bright enough to let you see what is ahead of you and allow cars and trucks to see you.

Performance – Ride and Handling

Let’s talk about how the TurbAnt X7 Max handles on the road.

Acceleration and top speed

The TurboAnt X7 Max offers spirited performance in the sport mode. It can easily hit its top speed of 20mph on flat ground. It will go slower up hills and with heavier riders. With lighter riders, it can power up hills with no problem. With heavier riders, it slowed down a little bit and still had no trouble climbing hills.

In eco mode performance is much more sedate. It will give you considerably more range in Eco than Sport if you have a long distance to cover but it’s not as fun. Comfort mode was a nice in between.

We find we ride on Sport mode most of the time. If you want more range you can go easier on the throttle and slow down to stretch out more range. For those who have heavy thumbs, the drive modes are a big help at extending the range of this scooter.

Steering

Some scooter riders feel the X7 Max handlebar is on the narrow side. Once you get used to riding, it feels fine. The scooter has no bad habits when it comes to turning. The scooter will turn easily from a normal stance.

Braking

The X7 Max has solid feeling brakes that can slow heavier riders down quickly from top speed. The electronic brake has a smooth feel to it. One complaint of the older X7 Pro was that the electronic brake was jerky feeling. They improved it with the X7 Max.

It helps to stand in a more athletic stance where you can shift your weight rearward to help with braking. This gives the rear brake much more power. If you stand with your weight forward on the scooter the rear brake will not have that much leverage and you will need to depend mostly on the electronic front brake.

Smooth ride

The pnuematic air tires give a very smooth ride for an electric scooter that doesn’t have any suspension. As long as you set the tire pressure to the recommended range you will have a nice balanced feeling ride. They do a good job of smoothing out cracks in the pavement and sidewalks. We would like to have a front shock but that would make it heavier and more expensive so we understand why they left it out.

Control systems

The throttle has a smooth feel without any jerkiness. Power application feels smooth all the way from low power to high power. Switching modes is easy using the control buttons on the throttle. The brake lever and throttle are well positioned and feel comfortable to use.

Range

As with any electric scooter, the range is heavily dependent on the rider, riding style, and speed. Lightweight riders who have gentle throttle fingers will be able to get 32 miles of range out of this scooter. Riders near the 275 lb weight limit will be lucky to get 15 to 20 miles if they ride at top speed in Sport mode all the time. Fortunately, there are extra batteries available for those who need an extra long range above 32 miles.

Battery Charging

Charging the 10 ah battery takes about 6 hours with the included charger. The battery has a lock on the stem that holds it securely in place. You can charge the battery either on the scooter or by itself. You can take it with you to charge under your desk at work or wherever. Extra batteries are available from TurboAnt to increase the range even further.

Portability

The TurboAnt X7 Max is very easy to carry and store anywhere you are going. It is still a very reasonable 34.2 lbs making it easy to carry with you. You can easily take it with you on a bus or subway. You can store it under your desk or in the closet at work.

The folding mechanism is easy to use and has proven to be durable. The deck of the X7 Max is larger making the size of the folded scooter a couple inches larger than the X7 Pro model. It’s still small enough to easily fit most places where you will want to store it.
