Battery of the GOTRAX Xr Ultra
The battery of the GOTRAX Xr Ultra is a 36v LG Battery 7.0AH. This is a huge upgrade upon the batteries found in older models. The LG batteries are known for their superior quality. They hold charges for a longer amount of time and they degrade slower in their lifetime. What this means for an electric scooter is that it will be more reliable. Much like any battery it will still need some basic care, like periodic charging under times of low use or a full charging before first use.
The LG battery in the Xr Ultra will also support longer maximum range. The Xr Ultra goes up to 16 miles on a single charging, making commuting easier.
The Xr Ultra has an upgraded motor to pair with the new and improved battery. This electric scooter has a 300 watt motor which, when paired with the high voltage console can generate a maximum of 700 watts of power. This increase in power makes a huge difference. GOTRAX new scooter handles hills and inclines with gusto, especially with some models founding wanting in this area.
The console of the Xr Ultra provides many of the same tools and functions as the GXL V2 with a higher voltage. The console conveniently displays battery levels, speed, gear, and odometer. The type of feedback you could expect from a vehicle, conveniently displayed on the LED screen of your scooter console. The console also supports a headlight. The headlight has been improved from previous models. What this means for riders is improved visibility, keeping you safe from traffic and dark paths.
Gotrax Xr Ultra Folding Electric Scooter Braking System
With all this speed it is also very important to be able to stop efficiently and safely. GOTRAX included a brand new dual braking system with the Xr Ultra. The system is an integration of a handbrake and an electronic brake. The handbrake is the disc braking system on the back wheel and the electronic brake is on the front wheel. Disc brakes are the gold standard for brakes on many personal transports, specifically scooters and bikes. Electronic brakes will be familiar to those who rode GOTRAX’s GXL commuter scooter. These two systems combine create a safe and reliable electric scooter.
All these new additions to the Xr Ultra Folding Scooter are supported by improved components from older models. The Xr’s deck is supported by two 85” pneumatic air filled tires. These tires handle the bumps and cracks of commutes with ease. They absorb shock as well, for a smoother ride. The tires are easily refillable. Also installed on the deck is a kickstand.
