Quality and Design of Gotrax G4 electric scooter

Looking at the design, the frame is more reliable. The difference is this makes the scooter more sturdy and durable for riding. Many scooters we have reviewed have a cable hanging through the handle affecting the look of scooters. Gotrax G4 solves this problem by brilliantly managing the cord. The design and structure of the scooter are well-constructed, ensuring quality and long-lasting.

  • Wheels

The Gotrax G4 is an upgrade if we talk about its tires. The tires are supersized, measuring 10 inches, and are pneumatic tires. With the customizable air-pressure depending on need and terrain, you can fit the tires as per personal requirements. This helps to hold stability and put leaning in-out to balance while riding the scooter. In rugged terrain, tires provide the first phase of comfort.

  • Motor

The G4 Gotrax Scooter has a stronger and bigger 350 Watt Motor. The motor provides high torque and yet manages to maintain low power consumption. With this torque, ultimately, the scooter is capable of reaching speeds of up to 20 mph.

  • Kick-stand and Deck

While charging or parking, the scooter rests on the kick-stand. The kick-stand is easy to use. The deck is expansive but, compared to the previous models, is a little narrow. An adult person can fit on the deck easily. The color of the deck is black.

  • Handlebar

The handlebar is 101.6 cm tall, perfect for many riders. The handle has an LED headlight, thumb throttle, Up-Down button, brakes, and digital display.

  • Foldable design

When talking about foldability, G4 offers a one-touch folding system. This feature overcomes the challenge of folding handles by bending it harder like in many other e-scooters.

  • Climb

The G4 is capable of hill climbing. Many of the electric scooters do not climb an incline, making it difficult for riders. At times, a lot of commuters are dissatisfied when they can’t ride the slope. The Gotrax G4 can climb an incline of a 15-degree hill. The motor is powerful, and the Gotrax G4 can climb a hill with ease.

  • Brakes

It is not an unusual fact that electric scooters come with a Dual Braking System. Almost every electric scooter on the market today has them. What is unique in Gotrax G4 is that it activates dual brakes when you hold the hand brake.

The hand brake will activate both the E-ABS braking system and disc braking system. The scooter with a potent motor, battery, and tires can go full speed for adventurous adult riders. The brakes have to be powerful as well. These brakes give you more confidence when riding at high speed or riding downhill.

 

Battery Life and Charging Time

  • Battery

Interestingly, to support a big motor and tires, the Gotrax G4 new scooter also has a big battery. 36 V 10.4 Ah

  • Charger

Apart from the user manual, the G4 also comes with a set of the charger.

  • Charging Time

The charging time is not that lengthy. It generally takes around 4-5 hours for the battery to charge fully.

  • Battery Backup

The scooter provides a considerably better battery backup. The battery is an ultra-long-range battery going up to 25 miles(40.23km) per charge.

The G4 holds the charge for riding long distances as a worthwhile commuting e-scooter.
