Believe it or not, huge tires are the least crazy part of this electric scooters. First, there are two motors with the combined peak power of 5.4 kW, able to unleash top speed of up to 50 mph. The battery is 60V, 35 Ah LG lithium battery, delivering maximum range of 75 miles. For such a powerful battery, you will need an extra charger, because with a single charger you will have to wait 20 hours for the battery to be on the full charge again.
Braking system and suspension are also first-class. Thunder features both hydraulic brakes and electronic ABS. Dual piston calliper system provides an excellent control and stability, absorbs more heat and noise, and because of better distribution it wears better. The innovative 45 steps control suspension system consists of 3 steps motor axis distance control, 3 steps arm angle control, and 5 types of the rubber, which accounts for a total of 45 options for the suspension strength settings.
The 11” ultra-wide tires are tubeless, with removable wheel assembly, which means that you don’t have to worry about flats and servicing. With two such powerful motors and grippy tires, climbing hills is not a problem for Thunder. In our experience, from all the scooters we’ve tested, Dualtron Thunder is hands-down, the best hill climber of all.
Dualtron Thunder has probably the smallest turning circle from all the scooters on this list, thanks to the steering column design. The handlebar is positioned at 37” from the deck, which makes this scooter suitable for taller riders. The deck is a foot wide, allowing different foot positions, which helps with both comfort and handling while riding.
Dualtron Thunder is fast and powerful, but it is also exquisitely built, and the details speak for themselves. Cables are fully shielded against any exterior hazards with the additional pieces of rubber that seal the cable entrances to the main body, and also every bolt in the scooter comes with thread sealant. It is foldable, featuring a folding stem that locks into the folded position and folding handlebars, but it is also very heavy, weighting 95 lbs.
