Pedronqr If you had to pick one “quality”, which would it be: range, fastest top speed, portability (lightweight and quick folding), good ride quality (e.g., if you’ll be riding on poor roads)?
Lots of scooters combine these, but oftentimes we’ll figure out what each scooter is BEST at, and if you know what is most important to you, that can help direct you to the best scooter(s) for you. Your size and riding style will also make an impact into which will be best for you.
I believe the Gotrax G4 is the fastest of the scooters you mentioned, but that’s not why it’s my favorite.
The TurboAnt X7 Pro can have double its range (up to 30 mi, I believe) if you purchase and tote around an extra battery (weighs 6 lb) which is a great feature making it a fairly portable long-range scooter.
The Hiboy S2 Pro has nice acceleration for a zippier, fun ride but solid tires, whereas the G4, TurboAnt and Air all have air-filled tires, so if you’ve got bad roads the S2 Pro might not be the best bet.
