X-Treme's popular X-370 Electric Scooter was my test drive today, and I have to say, this proved to be one sweet ride that is not only stylish, but is an affordable model that can fit almost any rider's needs.
The X-Treme X-370 is an upgraded version of the discontinued X-360 that offers riders higher quality components and superior design.
Powered by a beefy 350-watt, chain driven electric motor, the X-370 electric scooter can reach speeds of up to 21 mph, and can carry you as far as 20 miles on a single charge. The 3-cell battery pack pushes 36 volts, 30 amps to the rear wheel, where its closest competitors offer only two cells. When needed, the battery pack can be recharged in as little as 4-6 hours.
The X-Treme X-370 electric scooter is a classically styled one that boasts a durable ABS plastic “dolphin style” body which covers a super strong high tensile steel frame that can take a beating and come back for more. It's great looking, yes, but top quality components underneath the flash and dazzle assure you of a safe and reliable ride.
What goes fast must eventually go slow, and so the X-370's rear drum braking system offers a special inhibit safety feature that automatically disengages the throttle whenever the brake lever is pulled. Combined with the front suspension forks, the ultra-plush, spring loaded, shock absorbing seat assures you of a smooth ride as well.
The X-Treme XMB-400 Elite Folding Electric Mobility Scooter is this weeks featured review! My favorite Aunt Millie called me the other day, asking for some advice on getting a new mobility scooter, as she is fast growing too infirm these days to walk around very much. One of her most important criteria was that the scooter be comfortable enough to ride for any length of time, as she loves to window shop down Main Street, especially during the holiday season. Fortunately, as a scooter tester, I was able to find one that fit her needs quite well: X-Treme's new XMB-400.
This lightweight, portable scooter sports a cushy shelf style seat that is fully adjustable, and comes with padded back and arm rests too. And with its beefy two 12 volt, 12 amp batteries, the X-Treme XMB-400 Elite can move you up to 10 miles on a single charge. I knew too that she'd appreciate the front-mounted removable basket, which would be a real aid for easier holiday shopping.
But I wanted more. I wanted to make sure Aunt Millie stays safe while riding around, and that the scooter be portable enough for Uncle Bob to transport and store away for her when it's not needed. Fortunately, the XMB-400 Elite fits that bill quite nicely.
The X-Treme XMB-400 Electric Mobility Scooter's 180 watt electric motor has a top forward speed of 4 mph, and a reverse top speed of 2 mph. Acceleration is smooth, and the automatic braking system engages when you ease off the throttle, bringing you to an easy stop. No jolting or jostling about here.
X-Treme has a really nice folding electric bike, the XB-210Li that I was able to test drive today. I had tried its little brother the other day, and though I liked its little bro, the XB-200Li, I really liked the XB-210Li, for a lot of reasons.
First, the XB-210Li is equipped with large 16” Kendra rubber tires. This makes for more efficient pedaling and a smoother ride. The cushy spring loaded seat is very comfortable, even after a long ride, and I didn't feel all stiff and awkward getting off and walking into the store. The lightweight yet strong aluminum seat post and handlebars are fully adjustable, so that you can get the right specs dialed in for your body to make this ride nice and sweet.
I was very impressed too with the XB-210Li's strength, weight and portability. The bike is made with all top of the line components. The aluminum hand welded alloy frame is extremely light and durable, and can take a pounding with ease. The 300 watt brushless motor, powered by a lightweight lithium ion battery pack, is rear wheel mounted, and gives surprisingly smooth and fast performance on the road.
