Our Take: A Scooter That's as Light and as Powerful as Its Name

TurboAnt X7 Pro Review

The TurboAnt X7 Pro electric scooter is a strong contender in the budget commuter category, with a solid stem, super smooth acceleration, and lightweight speed. With a tested top speed of 15.8 mph, the X7 Pro isn’t the fastest entry-level scooter but it rides smooth and stable.

Pretty portable and user friendly

It’s a great model for first-time riders as it packs together many of the portability and user-friendly features that we appreciate most, including a small folded footprint, lightweight build, quick folding that locks into position for easy carrying, an ergonomic thumb throttle, and a high-mounted headlight.

It isn’t ultraportable because the handlebars don’t fold, but the stem locking mechanism feels particularly solid and the locking clasp is very easy to clip to the fender when folded.

The TurboAnt X7 Pro has folded dimensions of 43 in long by 17 in wide by 18 in tall. The handlebars are 17 in wide and the deck to handlebar height is 39.0 in tall, which is a comfortable setup for most riders.

It also features a removable battery pack that weighs 6.5 lbs, which is a nice convenience for charging and transporting. If you need to get more distance than it provides with one battery, you can purchase a second battery pack to double the range.

The one downside of the battery being in the stem is that it makes the TurboAnt X7 Pro front heavy. This is really only a concern when getting the scooter up curbs or lifting it by the handlebars when its not folded, as the rear wheel will swing freely and can knock you in the ankles.

Why you Should Keep an Active Stance when Braking

With large pneumatic 10.0 in tires at 35 psi, a rear disc brake, a front regenerative brake, and a foot brake, the X7 Pro provides good damping at low speed and safe braking without suspension. The lower tire pressure (psi) allows the air-filled tires to cushion uneven terrain better than tires that are at the usual 45 psi.

The rear disc brake responds pretty well, but sometimes feels like it’s not getting traction. If your rider stance is very erect and your weight is toward the front of the scooter, you’ll likely feel the rear brake skip a bit instead of really gripping to the pavement.

If you are in an active rider stance (some bend in your elbows and knees and balancing weight over your rear leg), the rear brake is more effective.

Nice but Narrow Deck, and a Clean Cockpit

The deck on the TurboAnt X7 Pro is pretty narrow at 5.5 in, one of the narrowest we’ve ever tested, but it provided enough standing room given it is 17.5 in long. It accommodates heavier riders up to 280 lbs, and was a suitable build for all members of the RG team from 5’4″ to 6’4″.

TurboAnt X7 Pro Review Conclusion

Overall, the TurboAnt X7 Pro is a lot like an everyday ant: small and light itself but able to carry weight, packing good features for its size. At this price point, there are few entry-level electric scooters that beat this package (outside of the well-rounded Gotrax G4).
