TURBOANT X7 PRO REVIEW
Turboant X7 Pro Summary:
Turboant relied on the success of the Pro’s successors, the X7, to solidify its place as one of the greatest low-cost electric scooter manufacturers. The X7 and X7 Pro remain popular among scooter aficionados, proving that their efforts were not in vain. The scooter has a rock solid structure with an aluminium alloy frame that is corrosion-proof and weather resistant, lowering the scooter’s weight while also increasing longevity. The strong folding stem has a locking clasp for safe mobility.
The X7 Pro has a 3-speed option that caters to beginners, intermediates, and pros. The maximum speed when utilising cruise control is limited to 6 mph in the Beginner mode, 10 mph in the Eco mode, and 20 mph in the Sports mode. The ability to limit your scooter’s speed is critical, especially for riders in the United Kingdom and other European nations where speed limits for scooter riders are occasionally enforced.
The scooter is propelled by a strong 350-watt engine that is powered by a 36-volt, 10-amp-hour lithium-ion battery. To provide a faster acceleration curve, the power motor works in tandem with a very sensitive throttle. The battery pack is incorporated in the stem of the X7 Pro, which is a unique design. Scooter lovers have mixed feelings about this design aspect, with some praising the convenience while others decrying the aesthetic effect. It does, however, make it more difficult to carry over long distances, but because the battery is detachable, you can keep a spare in your bag, especially if you’re going on a lengthy commute.
The scooter has a triple braking system that includes an electrical braking system, a rear disc brake, and a rear fender brake to handle the high peak speed of 20 mph. Although the scooter lacks suspension, Turboant compensated by using superb 10-inch pneumatic tyres that absorb most road irregularities. The X7 Pro’s off-road performance is enhanced by the large tyres and 4.5-inch ground clearance, making it suitable for excursions as well. Please keep in mind that this scooter is intended to be a great urban commuting scooter, not an off-road monster.
The scooter also has a bright 3W headlight and taillight, as well as a pair of side reflectors, for increased nighttime safety. With a left brake lever, an LED display, a soft rubber throttle, and a bell, the handlebars are a touch cluttered.

The X7 Pro distinguishes out among its competitors as a low-cost electric scooter. Only a few scooters in its class can equal its performance. The Turboant X7 Pro is quick, reaching a top speed of 20 mph and benefiting from the considerable torque produced by the 350 W power motor. The scooter can handle up to a 20% gradient on hills. The smooth acceleration handled by the rubber throttle will wow riders.
Turboant added a triple braking system, consisting of an Electronic Braking System (EBS), rear disc brake, and rear foot brake, to enable the user keep control of the scooter even at high speeds. With a braking distance of about 16.4 feet, this mechanism can bring the scooter to a standstill in seconds.
Speed & Acceleration:
The highest speed varies based on the riding circumstances, battery charge level, and weight of the rider, but the official top speed is 20 mph. The X7 Pro’s display allows you to convert from mph to km/h and vice versa, depending on your country’s chosen system. The rider may also adjust the settings to meet their riding talents and needs, or to comply with speed limits imposed by several authorities in Europe and the United Kingdom.
The three-speed mode can also be useful in a variety of situations. Beginner mode limits the speed to 6 mph, making it perfect for younger users or those becoming acquainted with the scooter. When you want to save your battery for a lengthy travel, use the Eco option, which limits the speed to 12 mph. You may enjoy the scooter’s peak speed while using quick acceleration in Sports mode. The X7 Pro’s flexibility and adaptability are enhanced by these three modes.
This model’s acceleration follows a very conventional rising slope for an urban commuter, and it won’t knock your socks off. The Turboant X7 Pro also has cruise control, which engages when the throttle is held down for 10 seconds or longer while keeping a constant speed.
While the Turboant X7 Pro is certified to climb inclines of up to 15 degrees, factors like as the rider’s weight and remaining battery capacity have a significant impact on this e-climbing scooter’s performance.
The X7 Pro is ideal for conquering the ordinary incline, but it won’t be able to compete with far more powerful and pricey versions that are built for raw power output.
The higher the climb, the faster you lose power, and we discovered that the X7 Pro only starts to suffer when facing hills steeper than 10-15 degrees or more.
Battery & Range:
One of the most prominent aspects of the X7 Pro is the 36 V, 10Ah Li-ion removable battery placed along the stem, as previously noted. While carrying it about may take some getting used to due to the battery’s location, it has a number of advantages. With a single charge, riders may enjoy a lengthy journey of up to 30 kilometres. If you know you’ll be riding for an extended period of time, get an additional battery and have it in your bag as a backup.
It’s also easy to charge thanks to the removable battery. The X7 Pro’s detachable battery may be charged anywhere is convenient, unlike most other electric scooters, which put the battery and power source in the deck, requiring the rider to tote their scooter around hunting for a charging location.
Of course, your riding style, mode selection, terrain, battery level, and other factors all influence the scooter’s range. As a result, it’s critical to keep an eye on the LED display to determine your battery level. Ride in Eco mode if you wish to save electricity. A range of 14-16 miles is likely for those who enjoy speed and wish to use the Sport mode. After 10 minutes of idleness, the scooter’s energy-saving mechanisms turn it off.
A 36 V, 350 W motor is used in the Turboant X7 Pro motor setup, which is operated by an ergonomically built throttle on the handlebar. The maintenance-free motor is housed in the front wheel, which is protected from splashes and debris by a front fender.
Construction & Quality:
While many manufacturers have to sacrifice quality and construction to keep their scooters inexpensive, the Turboant X7 Pro appears to have found that elusive balance. The X70 Pro’s frame is built of aluminium alloy, like many other portable electric scooters on the market today, making it solid and robust.
As a result, it’s a touch heavier than high-end scooters made of carbon fibre rather than aluminium alloy. Because it also stores the battery pack, which distributes the majority of the scooter’s weight to the front, the stem is strong and durable. There is also a distinct absence of rattling that is common in e-scooters in this price range, which is a pleasant surprise. The scooter is supported by a sturdy kickstand.
Suspension & Comfort:
The X7 Pro scooter lacks a suspension system, but the amazing 10-inch pneumatic tyres more than make up for it.
The X7 Pro offers a better riding experience than its predecessor. The larger tyres and increased range are responsible for this improvement. The 10-inch tyres absorb shocks even without suspension, ensuring a comfortable ride. However, while the large pneumatic tyres provide excellent shock absorption, they do not perform as well in off-road terrains. In the lack of a decent suspension system, anything rougher than dirt tracks or parks will result in a choppy ride.
The scooter’s excellent braking mechanism also lets the user to enjoy high speeds and Sports mode without having to worry about stopping when necessary. The various ride modes, as well as their restricted peak speeds, are effective at adjusting the rider’s pace to match their experience and preferences. The handgrips are rubberized, and the deck is textured to provide the rider a better grip and control when manoeuvring.
The X7 Pro has a strong 3W LED headlight that is bright enough for most metropolitan environments. However, if you frequently ride in dimly lit areas, you will need to get a second headlight.
On both sides of the front and back tyres, the scooter has reflector lights. It also includes a brake light on the back fender to warn other road users when you’re slowing down and to warn tailing vehicles in low-light situations.
Stopping is just as important as going. The X7 Pro has various braking systems to assist riders come to a full stop even while riding at high speed. The rear wheel disc brake is controlled by a hand-operated brake placed on the handlebar. This is the most natural braking method since it allows you to slow down before coming to a complete stop. When you need to come to a complete stop, though, you step on the back fender, which activates the scooter’s emergency brake. The Turboant X7 Pro has a regenerative electrical braking technology that helps you recover energy when braking.
The hand-operated brake is useful for those transitioning from bikes to electric scooters since it makes operating the scooter easier and provides some familiarity.
The Turbo X7 Pro includes a simple folding mechanism that makes it more portable. Commuters may effortlessly fold the scooter and store it in a corner of their home or workplace. Riders who only need it once in a while may fold it up and store it, then click it into action when they need it.
The X7 Pro’s handlebar is thicker than typical due to the battery’s location, making it a little uncomfortable to carry about at first. However, most city riders believe that it does not take long to get used to.
Because the battery is not in the deck, the X7 Pro has more ground clearance, allowing the rider to manoeuvre difficult terrain without harming the battery’s underbelly.
The deck’s surface is coated with gripping silicone rubber to keep the rider’s feet firmly planted on the platform and assure their safety. The surface is spacious enough for most adults to ride comfortably. We discovered that shifting your feet and transitioning while riding around is quite comfortable.
Controls & Display:
A Digital LED display is located in the centre of the handlebar on the X7 Pro. The screen shows important information including battery life, speed, and the setting you’re using. Each mode has its own colour, and changing the mode alters the colour that appears on the screen.
Between the LED display and the right handgrip, there is an all-in-one throttle. The throttle serves as a control centre. It allows you to turn on or off the scooter, pick a mode, power the motor, and engage the headlight. When you keep it down for more than 10 seconds while travelling at a consistent pace, it also engages the cruise control.
The disc brake is engaged when the hand-operated brake on the handlebar is used, bringing the bike to a stop.
The X7 Pro has an IPX4 grade for water resistance. As a result, it is protected against all types of water splashes, even low-pressure jets. This water-resistant scooter, when paired with the gripping deck, allows users to commute in light rains.
However, like with many other electric scooters, you should ride in dry weather and avoid going out in torrential downpours.
Large 10-inch pneumatic tyres are standard on the Turboant X7 Pro. While novice electric scooter riders may not place a high value on tyres when shopping for a new scooter, they do play an important part in the overall ride quality. The kind, size, and tread pattern of a tyre may make the difference between a rough and a smooth, comfortable ride.
Many inexpensive scooters have 8.5-inch tyres, while others use solid rubber tyres to save money in the manufacturing process. Solid tyres do not absorb road irregularities and typically necessitate the installation of a suspension system by the manufacturer. Solid rubber tyres, without suspension, provide a harsh ride. The pneumatic tyres of the X7 Pro perform an excellent job of absorbing judders and shocks caused by riding on uneven ground or walkways, as well as highways in poor condition. And, because to its air-filled tyres, which provide superb cushioning and outstanding grip, this adds to a pleasurable riding experience.
The X7 Pro has a range of up to 30 miles on a single charge, which is exceptional for an e-scooter in this price range. Depending on the riding circumstances, mode, and rider’s weight, this can be reduced. It also boasts a three-braking system that provides safe stopping even if one of them fails. Riders may roam around throughout the day and at night thanks to the lighting profile. Under addition, the IPX4 assures that cyclists will be able to bike in mild rain.

Simply email support(at)turboant.com to get in touch with Turboant’s customer service. They’ll get back to you within 24 hours.
Some riders complain that the handlebar is excessively thin, however after repeated usage, this becomes less visible.
When bringing the scooter to a curb or carrying it folded, the heavy battery distributes too much weight to the stem, causing issues.
To clean the scooter, use a clean, moist towel. Because the scooter is water-resistant, you may clean it with a damp towel. If you’re planning to put the scooter/battery away for an extended period of time, make sure it’s completely charged beforehand.
