The X7 Pro is the latest electric scooter offering from Turboant. Aptly named the Turboant X7 Pro, this electric scooter is an upgrade to the already popular Turboant X7. It's not a complete take off from its predecessor because it maintains some of the critical components of the X7, such as the 350 W power motor and the 275 pounds weight capacity.
However, there're subtle changes in the new offering, such as higher speed, and longer range.
For the regular and casual riders, the changes might seem minimal, and it's easy to think their impact is negligible. Wrong.
For the electric scooter enthusiasts, there's more than meets the eye, and these subtle changes can influence the overall performance.
Sure, there won't be a huge discrepancy is the performance, but the skilled rider will feel a difference in the rider comfort and ride experience.
So, yes, if you’re simply a regular Turboant X7 rider, who doesn’t need bells and whistles to your electric scooter, it wouldn’t hurt if you stuck to the original version.
But, if you're enthusiasts needing to upgrade to the latest model, with now a more fulfilling riding experience, the Turboant X7 Pro would be the right choice. Plus, the price difference is quite negligible for the extras you get for the new electric scooter.
That said, is the Turboant X7 Pro alongside its features the right option for you?
We shall see that shortly on our Turboant X7 Pro review.
Turboant X7 Pro Overview
The folks at Turboant bill the X7 Pro as the ideal PEV for commuting adults.
It’s a bold statement, but it’s easy to see why.
This electric scooter ticks all the boxes for an adult e-scooter. To begin with, X70 Pro has a decent weight capacity of 275 pounds.
The 350 W motor is also decent, and though it might not wow the adrenaline freaks, it’s reasonable for the casual riders.
Finally, it has a decent range, enough to get to and from work.

Features and Benefits of Turboant X7 Pro
A crucial aspect for any electric scooter is the construction quality, and once again, Turboant doesn’t disappoint.
The aluminum frame construction on the X7 Pro shrugs off any abuse while maintaining a low weight.
A growing concern with a majority of the electric scooters is a wobbly handlebar. Not on the X7 Pro. This beast feels rock-solid with the double-lock mechanism holding the stem in position.
However, a selling feature on the X7 Pro is the thick folding tubular stem, which enhances the overall portability.
And like its sibling, the removable battery on the X7 Pro is situated on the stem instead of inside the deck.
Weight and Weight Capacity
X7 Pro is relatively light, but you'll need a stable hold, considering it weighs 33 pounds, four more pounds than the X7.
It's not the lightest option, but a portable PEV.
When folded, it collapses into a nifty and compact 42.6 × 16.5 × 18.1 in product for easy transport.
At the same time, the solid construction allows the electric scooter to accommodate users of up to 275 pounds.
Speed and Range
A sturdy and lightweight e-scooter is of no use if it can’t get you from point A to B in an efficient way.
Fortunately, the X7 Pro boasts a lot in the performance numbers, a contrast to its step down mode, the X7.
Under the hood of the X7 Pro, you’ll find a powerful 350W motor. The motor power rating isn’t among the premium options, but it strikes a balance between power and ease of use.
The 350 W rating is suitable for both the beginners and intermediate riders as it offers a reasonable power, modest enough to accommodate the new entrants.
The motor easily propels the electric scooter up to a range of 20- 30 miles, with a max speed of 20 mph. Of course, the statistics are for the ideal conditions. But the range is by far better than the 9 to 16 miles on the X7.
Yes, the X7 Pro could be a superior option for those who need to extend their range a little more further.
Tires- Off-Road Capabilities
The large 10-inch pneumatic wheels on the X7 Pro enhance the off-road capabilities of this e-scooter by absorbing the shock from the bumpy city sidewalks.
The wheels, alongside the 4.5-inch ground clearance, deliver superior off-road performance, allowing you to conquer any road conditions.
Of course, the lack of a suspension system means you're likely to feel every bump on the road, but the large wheels lessen the impact, and riding over the uneven terrain will feel a lot smoother.
Speed doesn’t make sense if you can’t come to a halt and the X7 Pro’s braking system is solid and smooth to bring you to a sudden halt in the nick of time.
The folks at Turboant seem to have ironed out some of the kinks users complained about on the X7 as the X7 Pro delivers a seamless braking system.
The 36 V 10 Ah battery on the X7 Pro has a decent performance, delivering up to a max of 30 miles on a single charge.
However, the charging time is a bit of a deal-breaker, as it takes a lengthy 6 hours to get fully charged.
Should You Get the X7 Pro?
The X7 Pro could make a perfect replacement for the X7. In particular, it could be fit for those who need to extend their range.
X7 Pro is also the perfect electric scooter for the casual riders, particularly the beginners and intermediate riders, who need PEV with reasonable speed and range.
Who is the X7 Pro not For?
The X7 Pro is a performer but not worthy enough for the serious riders.
Not that its performance is any way inferior, but the performance figures simply don’t appeal to the professionals.
The X7 Pro comes with plenty of awesome features, and it's not a surprise it's gaining such huge popularity.
It's suited for beginners and intermediate users looking for a casual electric scooter that can rack up extra miles.
The X7 Pro is also reasonably priced, and one more reason it won our hearts.
