We’re reviewing the Segway Ninebot MAX, an electric scooter with a range of up to 40 miles and built for durability, long rides and commuting.
The MAX is priced at £799 retail, but they recently launched an Indiegogo campaign where you can pre-order for only £569. We think for the price, this is one of the best electric scooters to buy in 2019.
Ninebot sent us their new Ninebot MAX scooter to test and see how it performs. The first thing we noticed is how much larger and sturdier it is compared to other electric scooters we tested in the past, making it one of the best electric scooters for commuting. The base of the scooter is wider, the front stem is taller, and the wheels are larger. This means a better and more comfortable ride compared to other e-scooters on the market.
The motor is also in the rear wheel, compared to most other electric scooters that have the motor in the front wheel. Having the motor in the back is better for acceleration, stability and braking. Both wheels feature tubeless tires which means you’ll never get a flat or have to replace a tube.
