The Best Electric Scooter For Adults 300lbs – 136Kg And Over

Electric scooters are a lot of fun and super popular.

dualtron thunder review

Dualtron Thunder

This beast can literally do anything you throw at it and go anywhere. It has no problem with a rider weighing 300+lbs – 136 kg and can take up to 340lbs (155kg) without any problems.

$4590 $3699

Our Rating

The Dualtron Thunder is the big brother of the already very powerful Dualtron Ultra. It features even more powerful 5400w (2700w) dual hub motors and the same high capacity 60V 34.50Ah battery. With this battery, you have a range of 74 miles (120km).

Though the specs are almost the same as the Dualtron Ultra, this Dualtron Thunder has larger and wider tires, a larger deck and larger brake calipers compared to the Ultra.

The Thunder is the top of the line of the Dualtron series.

This is without a doubt one of the most powerful electric scooters we’ve tested. This is a perfect scooter for more heavy adults because it has no trouble carrying a full-grown 300lbs adult up a hill or slope.

The maximum load it can handle is, in fact, 340lbs (155kg)

Safety:

To bring this beast to a halt Dualtron fitted it with massive 160mm ventilated calipers. It is also the only electric scooter in the world that has ABS brakes.

Now while this is a great safety feature it’s important to note that during our testing we experienced some slightly annoying vibrations when braking hard.

The ABS can be turned off if you don’t like these vibrations while riding.

The very wide deck is one foot wide and offers a lot of stability at high speeds.

Only drawback:

The only downside we experienced was the weight when carrying it around, this is NOT a lightweight scooter by any means, and it doesn’t make it very suitable for commuting or carrying it for longer distances. The weight of a folded Dualtron Thunder is 101 lbs – 46 kg

The handlebars are similar to the Ultra and are also foldable. There is an LCD display to read all the vital information about the scooter. There is also an Emergency button and you can (optionally) fit it with a fingerprint sensor.

As with the Dualtron Ultra (review below), this Thunder has a very long battery charge time. Up to 20 hours if you don’t get the optional fast charger.

This is the scooter for you if you are 300lbs or over and you want a fast and powerful electric scooter that will take you anywhere you want to go without worrying about what roads or obstacles lie ahead.

This is the top of the range in the Dualtron series and it shows from the moment you step on it and hit the throttle.

Standard features of the Dualtron Thunder:

  • 5400W (2x2700w)Dual Motors (+ 40mph) (+ 60km/h)
  • 60V 35Ah 2072Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (72 miles of range)
  • Dual Disk Brakes with ABS
  • Rubber Suspension
  • Off-road / On-road Tires
  • Atmospheric LED Light
  • Climbing Grade 30°
  • Maximum 340lbs (155kg) Load

Pros and Cons:

Superb ABS brakes front and rear

One of the most powerful electric scooters around

Tubeless tires (never worry about a flat tire)

Very wide deck, very stable at high speeds

Build to last, excellent quality

Some play in the steering

ABS brakes tend to vibrate a little

Dualtron Ultra

Meet one of the most powerful electric scooters in the world, rivaled only by it’s bigger brother the Dualtron Thunder.

$3149

Our Rating

Meet one of the most powerful electric scooters in the world, rivaled only by it’s bigger brother the Dualtron Thunder.

The Dualtron Ultra has massive 5400w peak power dual motors 😳

Battery and power:

These dual motors are equipped with top of the line heat sinks.

The battery is a 60v 35ah battery 2072Wh unit providing you with a range of 80 miles (130km) which is just crazy.

This scooter has electronic brakes that provide unrivaled braking performance, meaning you can stop for anything that comes on your way when riding this scooter. And riding on this beast of a scooter is a joy.

Rider Weight & Speed:

Because of its very powerful battery and dual motors, the Dualtron Ultra has a maximum load of 330lbs (150kg) and a climbing angle of around 35% so it can take any rider anywhere he wants to go, the sky really is the limit with this electric scooter.

Because of its sheer power, the top speed is above 40mph (65km) so caution is advised when riding this scooter at top speed.

Safety:

To stop this beast Dualtron fitted dual disk brakes in the front and an electric brake in the back. Another cool trick up its sleeve is that the brakes are regenerative so every time you brake you recharge your battery adding extra range to your drive.

The Dualtron Ultra is also fitted with ABS brakes, which is an awesome safety feature to have and rare on an electric scooter.

Furthermore on the Dualtron Ultra is a dual full suspension unit with rubber to absorb the bumps in the road.

There is a Multifunction smart LCD display which displays: Remaining battery life, TRIP, ODOmeter, Time, Speed, and Voltage is displaying. There is also a Cruise mode.

Only drawback:


The only downside this scooter has is when you use the default charger (you can buy an optional quick charger) there is a 17hr+ charging time.

So if you can spare the money I would suggest you buy the optional fast charger., which will charge a full battery in 5 to 6 hours.

Standard features of the Dualtron Thunder:

  • 4800W (2x2400w)Dual Motors (+ 40mph) (+ 60km/h)
  • 60V 35Ah 2072Wh Lithium-Ion Battery (80 miles of range)
  • Dual Disk Brakes
  • Rubber Suspension
  • Off-road / On-road Tires
  • Atmospheric LED Light
  • Climbing Grade 30°
  • Maximum 330lb (150kg) Load

Pros and Cons:

Full hydraulic brake system

Suspension soaks up all bumps in the road

Very powerful dual motors

ABS Brakes, very safe.

Very long battery loading time

EMOVE Cruiser best electric scooter for heavy adults

Emove Cruiser

If you are a big guy or girl then this electric scooter is definitely worth checking out, you won’t regret it. Gone are the days where you have to ride a scooter that is barely up to the job and rides as slow as a snail.

$1,299

Our Rating

This scooter is built to last. It has a 1600w motor which makes it very powerful. 

So powerful in fact that the max load capacity is 352lbs (160kg) (2 grown-up adults).

Battery power, Range and Speed:

Combine that with a 52V 30AH LG Battery with Battery Management System Protection and you have one badass electric scooter with a very long range.

The range is 62 miles (100km) which will certainly get you to your destination.

The top speed is 25mph (45km/h) so it’s legal to drive on the street.

Rider Weight:

The max load capacity is 352lbs (160kg) (2 grown-up adults). This makes the Emove Cruiser the most powerful electric scooter in it’s price range.

Safety:

To stop this very powerful scooter there are new hydraulic brakes in the front and the rear.

Emove Cruiser review - rear suspension and disk brakes

More Features:

The handlebars are foldable as is the scooter itself making it very convenient to store and to carry it with you.

Also on the handlebars are a voltmeter so you can check the battery and a locking key to unlock the scooter.

Furthermore also on the handlebars, there is also an LCD display that shows lots of information like battery life and the speedo. It also has 9 settings to change a lot of features on the scooter such as Start mode, Cruising mode, and Pick-up mode.

If you are a short-distance commuter looking to travel a few miles a day, expect your battery to last you for weeks, yes, weeks! Or better yet, not worrying that your battery will go flat if you are traveling long distances or running errands throughout the day.

The Emove Cruiser has true pneumatic car grade tires that have no inner tubes. No more inner tubes bursting in the middle of your ride.

Charging and Suspension:

The charging time is quite long with 9 to 12 hours but it is a very powerful battery so that makes up for the longer charging time. I plugged it in before I went to bed and it was almost always fully charged when I went to work with it.

The suspension is very good at soaking up speed bumps and potholes. In the front, there is a Dual suspension and in the rear an Air Shock suspension. This scooter does a good job of providing you with a smooth ride.

Emove Cruiser review - Front Suspension

If you are a big guy or girl then this electric scooter is definitely worth checking out, you won’t regret it. Gone are the days where you have to ride a scooter that is barely up to the job and rides as slow as a snail.

Voro Orca Mark 1 review

Voro Orca

This powerful electric scooter with a seat is not like a regular scooter. But it offers quite a punch and is therefore able to carry a bigger guy or gall without much effort.

$1,199

Our Rating

The Voro Orca has a quiet 48V 240W DC geared motor which is able to carry up to 260 lbs (120kg) load. Geared motors generally produces more torque than non gear motors. Therefore it is suitable for heavier riders or conquering slopes.

Have better control over your speed with both front and rear highly responsive disc brakes. Equipped together with its’ 12″ pneumatic tires, it can go past uneven grounds with ease.

Voro Orca Mark I Review 2020

Foldability:


The Orca Mark I also comes with reinforced folding mechanism which makes it foldable and easy to keep in just mere 2 seconds. 

Keep it at the back of your car, carry it on public transport and bring it along for all of your last mile travels. 

It also only weights about 42lbs (19kg) – that makes it one of the most portable seated electric scooters available!


Charging and Suspension:


The charging time is quite long with 9 to 12 hours but it is a very powerful battery so that makes up for the longer charging time. I plugged it in before I went to bed and it was almost always fully charged when I went to work with it.


The suspension is very good at soaking up speed bumps and potholes. In the front, there is a Dual suspension and in the rear an Air Shock suspension. This scooter does a good job of providing you with a smooth ride.

Lightest electric scooter to carry

Top Speed and Tires:


The top speed is 18mph (28km/h) which is fast enough on an electric scooter. And with a climbing capacity of 10 degrees, most slopes or hills won’t be much of an issue.

The tires are 10″ pneumatic car grade tires. And thanks to the front and rear spring suspension, going over bumps will be comfortable and relaxed.

The seat is very comfortable giving enough support for heavier adults.

Charging takes 5 to 7 hours, which isn’t bad, but could be better.

Additional Features:

Some additional features are a key ignition to help keep your scooter safe and secure, Durable ABS plastic body, deck, and rear mudguard and an Advanced front suspension & rear suspension system.

The LCD display is bright and can be read in direct sunlight, and gives all the necessary info.
