One of the things Gymax points out that other electric scooters don\u2019t is the quietness of their motor. If you have a kid who loves playing with this your neighbors will greatly appreciate this. It\u2019s one of the top reasons we decided to name the Gymax Electric Scooter a best electric scooter with seat, among lots of other reasons.\r\nWhy We Like It - Gymax\r\nGymax Electric Scooters offers a modest 7.5 MPH top speed which will be great for parents who want to make sure their kid isn\u2019t scooting around recklessly and the hand-operated rear brake makes it so that the electric scooter doesn\u2019t go flying forwards if you need to brake suddenly.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Gymax Electric Scooter offers a rather low top speed of 7.5 MPH but offers a very quiet motor, which should make your neighbours happy. If you want something faster, consider the SKRT Electric Scooter. The motor, in addition to being so quiet, is also chain-driven meaning it feels like a bike with a motor and also means replacing any internal parts should be a breeze.\r\nSafety\r\nThe Gymax Electric Scooter comes with a hand-operated rear brake which is great because the scooter won\u2019t go flying forward if you\u2019re forced to stop suddenly. The wheels are 6.5 inch polyurethane wheels. Polyurethane wheels combine the elasticity and maneuverability of rubber wheels with the toughness of metal wheels to provide a ground-hugging, smooth, and safe riding experience. If you like your wheels chunkier, consider the Razor Ecosmart Metro Electric Scooter.\r\nBattery Life\r\nThe battery on the Gymax Electric Scooter is a 24 volt, actually two 12 volt, sealed battery system. The battery can get anywhere between 6.5 miles to 9.5 miles per charge. This is actually quite a large disparity as three miles is quite a length to still travel. Check out the Hiboy S2 for something that can travel much farther. Fortunately for the Gymax, recharge time is on the low end at six hours, which is always welcome.\r\nDurability\r\nWith a 155 pound weight capacity the Gymax Electric Scooter is more suited to kids and teenagers rather than adults (although some adults may still make the cut). It does have a foldable design, so you can carry it with you onto the subway or around campus if the need arises. And the net weight of the scooter is 20 pounds which is, one, the lightest we\u2019ve seen thus far and, two, makes it that much easier to carry around with you.\r\nValue\r\nFor such an affordable scooter, the Gymax sure has some high-quality things going on. For one, it\u2019s made of steel instead of high-grade aluminum alloy which is a pleasing surprise. Not sure why the weight limit is only 155 pounds, then. It does only come in one color though, black, so maybe it\u2019s time someone told Gymax LLC that multiple colors help to bring out the personality of the rider.\r\nGymax Wrap Up\r\nWith polyurethane wheels and a fantastic six hour charge time, the Gymax Electric Scooter is a great choice for your first scooter. Couple this with an extremely affordable price tag and you\u2019ve got no reason to at least try it out and see how it goes. You won\u2019t be going too far at 6.5-9.5 miles, but if you\u2019re a parent that\u2019s a plus, not a negative.
