The Best Rides for Fans of Fast Electric Scooters

The Best Rides for Fans of Fast Electric Scooters - GOTRAX

One of the best parts about owning an electric scooter is being able to zoom down streets at speeds otherwise unachievable on a regular scooter. While any electric scooter could be considered “fast” compared to a traditional kick scooter, many riders are only interested in the scooters that will get them around town the quickest. That’s why today, we’re outlining the best of our speediest electric scooters for riders of all kinds.

Best Fast Electric Scooter for Beginner Riders: G4

If you’re new to the world of electric scooters, then picking up the fastest electric scooter on the market may be a bit overwhelming. Luckily, entry-level e-scooters still offer plenty of speed and excitement, especially when compared to a traditional kick scooter. 

The G4 is the perfect choice for newer riders looking to add an electric flair to their daily rides. With a 20 mph max speed, the G4 easily takes you to much higher speeds than you could reach pushing a scooter on your own. Plus, with convenient features like a light weight, one-touch folding, and a digital display, the G4 serves as a straightforward, portable, and convenient gateway to the world of fast-paced electric rides.

Best Fast Electric Scooter for Intermediate Riders: GX1 and GX2

The GX1 and GX2 performance electric scooters are both thrilling rides with the power to stand up to all sorts of routes, offering top speeds of 30 miles per hour and 35 miles per hour respectively. Both scooters feature dual motors, dual suspension, and dual breaking, helping them tackle rough roads, hills, and bouts of all-terrain riding with ease. 

Choosing between the GX1 and GX2 can be tough. They’re both fantastic dual motor electric scooters, with the only real difference between them being their top speed, max range, and price. If you’re interested in one of these rides but you’re having a hard time deciding, check out our GX1 and GX2 product overview for a rundown of what makes each of these scooters special.

Best Fast Electric Scooter for Daily Commuters: G5

High speeds aren’t just reserved for thrill seekers: for those seeking a quick and efficient ride to work, class, the store, and beyond, we have just the ride for you. The G5 is an unparalleled commuter electric scooter, hitting speeds of up to 20 miles per hour. While this matches the top speed of the G4, the G5 offers more than just an exciting top speed. It comes with a number of other helpful and enjoyable features that combine to create an unbeatable commuting experience.

One of the main draws of the G5 is its comfortable front suspension, which works with the scooter’s pneumatic tires to eat up bumps and cracks in the road, even while riding at top speeds. It also provides a max range of 30 miles, allowing for plenty of ride time before you need to recharge. Plus, compared to our performance models, the G5 maintains a lighter weight, helping to keep it portable and easy to store.

Best Fast Electric Scooter with Seat: Flex Campus Pro

Sometimes, the best rides are the ones where you can lean back and take it easy. Of course, just because you’re taking it easy doesn’t mean you need to go slow while you do so. The Flex Campus Pro is the fastest of our seated electric scooters, reaching a top speed of 18.6 miles per hour. While that does make it the slowest of our featured rides, don’t dismiss the Flex Campus Pro just yet: this ride has a number of unique perks up its sleeve.

For one, its seat lets you kick back and relax as you travel, giving your legs a rest. It also has larger tires that resemble those you’d see on a bike. These tires, alongside the cushioned seat and rear suspension, keep rides feeling smooth and comfortable. It even comes with a storage basket, making it easy and convenient to bring your stuff with you. Though it may not be the fastest of our fast electric scooters, the Flex Campus Pro offers a number of benefits that simply can’t be beat.

Best Fast Electric Scooter Overall: GX3

If you’ll only accept the best of the best, then look no further: the GX3 is our pick for the ultimate fast electric scooter. With a top speed of 38 miles per hour, the GX3 is the fastest scooter in the GOTRAX lineup. The GX3 isn’t just a fast ride, though: there are plenty of other factors that make the GX3 our best fast electric scooter.

It’s a dual motor electric scooter, so it offers the best possible performance on every ride. It's also got a massive 54 V, 25 Ah battery that gives it an impressive range of 55-60 miles per charge, making it the longest range electric scooter we have available. Like our other dual motor e-scooters, it comes equipped with dual suspension and dual breaking to keep rides smooth, confident, and controlled, as well as a digital display that keeps you informed as you ride. The GX3 blows every other electric scooter out of the water, so if you’re looking for the most adrenaline-pumping ride out there, then you’ll want to take the GX3 for a spin.
