    It flys up hills

    but lol @ doing something silly like 80kmph and then coming off the scooter - you'll wake in hospital if you're lucky with half your skin gone.

    That thing looks cumbersome to store or move around with.

    Apart from going fast it has no benefits apart from increasing the likelihood of injury and death.

    It is cumbersome, however you can set a speed limit on them which is good.

    You can set a speed limit on the Ninebot ES2 as well.

    That elbow front wheel design just looks like a disaster waiting to happen.

    Yeah after my Xiaomi I just want one with decent hill-climbing ability, carry-up-some-stairs portability, and 35km/h top speed for >=$1,500

    edit, that was supposed to be <=$1,500

    If it isn't too personal how much do you weigh and how fast can it carry you up a hill?

    Are you rocking the Xiaomi 365?

    The ES4 adds some more oomph to the ES2. Although I would only buy new stock of the ES series. The old stock was obviously flawed (the internet was in a flap) but mine is pretty new and have had nil issues.

    My ES2 struggles up some steepish hills at which point I just ride like a normal scooter.

    $300 for an external battery to go up hill faster just didn't seem worth it.

    Segway just released the Kickscooter Max which may be the ticket. Edit - Actually just looks legit like the Xiaomi Pro

    with my backpack & laptop etc probably ~95kg. The modded M365 hauls my ass pretty good. Gets from Jville station to Newlands New World about 15km/h average without having to kick, if you're familiar with the northern suburbs/Newlands Rd at all.

    Yep rocking the M365. When I upgrade (in the next 12 months hopefully) I would want to go for a bit more power than the ES2/ES4 can provide.
    That converts to about $2,500NZD, a bit above my budget

    It's the US price for shipping to NZ, selecting country doesn't seem to change the currency.

    Hmm... I'm around 65kg are there any physics students out there? How much faster would I go?

    These things are designed for people your size, so you should be able to achieve whatever they say the max speed is on the specs.

    It'll cap out at 25kmh (or 30kmh modded) either way. It's only acceleration, hill climb and distance that will be affected.

    I have a Ninebot Mini plus, Ninebot ES4, and a Xiaomi M365.... the mini plus is great on hills, however it is rather slow on a flat... (top speed of about 19 km/h)... the M365 is great on the flat (up to 25 km/h), however hills is a bit of a story... disc brake is great and ride quality with air tyre is rather good.... only downside is you may get a puncture and it is an effort and a half to replace the tyres...

    The ES4 is great on the flat, however ride quality is not as good as the M365... hill climbing ability is a lot better tho, even when the battery is on 20-30% mark (normally M365 really struggle on hills when it has under 50% charge).... However ES4 brake is not as good and it is noticeably heavier than the M365...

    Anyone have experience with this?
    https://scoozzi.nz/shop/inokim-ox-super/

    I kinda want one, 12km journey each way from home to work, and most of that will be on a cyclepath.

    pros: 110km range, up to 45km/h speed
    cons: 28kg weight

    I know they're supposed to be one of the best ones you can get here, hence the price.

    45km/h sounds kind of dangerous...

    I tried to have a go on the Xiaomi 365 in store but apparently you have to kick off first then engage the motor?

    By then I had already hit the end of the store and had to stop so couldn't get much of a feel for it. The acceleration was pretty savage probably due to my (lack of) weight. Is there a way to limit the top speed while learning?

    Yeah, buy a kids scooter that isn't powered. Sissy I'm sure after 20 minutes you'd be riding like a pro so it would be a non-issue.

    oh yea, the price is a con. I'll have to weigh it up. already good that my daily commute is about $35/week via train/bus, but it would be nice to get out. other option is e-bike since it's at that price level.

    hah but yea, that is more than quick enough imo. but not silly like 80kph levels
