Segway Ninebot Max
Although the maximum speed is limited in Australia to 25kmh, the Ninebot Max is one of the more powerful scooters around. It is loaded with features, 2 particularly useful features are the long range battery and the built in charger, allowing a range of 65km before recharging, then being able to plug in and get a boost charge before returning. The larger 10” wheels and the tubeless air tyres provide a more comfortable ride, without the problem of punctures, which was a problem on the Xiaomi M365 scooter. The rear wheel brake incorporates a regenerative braking system, when the throttle is released, to flow energy back into the battery, thereby increasing the range. The rear wheel drive gives added stability, and incorporates the electric braking. The front wheel uses an integrated mechanical drum brake, and is very effective. The only negative to this is that the additional features add weight, with a total of almost 19kg, it will be better to ride, but more difficult to carry on public transport.
