We have looked at many electric scooters in our time and finally got our hands on the Dualtron Ultra. That means we can finally bring you our tried and tested Dualtron Ultra review. One thing we can say is that this is an awesomely fast and capable long range electric scooter.
Dualtron Ultra Review – Quick Look
The best way to describe the Dualtron Ultra is as the big boy of the electric scooter world. This scooter is one of the fastest electric scooters available with a super long range between charges. It is capable of taking a rider weighing up to 330 lbs, features front and rear suspension as well as front and rear disc brakes. It is easy to ride and folds down in a matter of seconds for easy storage.
This is also the perfect electric scooter should you want to ride off-road.
|Top Speed||40+ MPH|
|Maximum Range||80 Miles|
|Motor||2 x 2700 Watts|
Power is delivered to the wheels of the Dualtron Ultra through two extremely powerful 2700 watt electric motors. One motor drives the front wheel while one motor drives the rear wheel. This delivers a total 5400 watts of power to the Dualtron Ultra. The end result is a hugely powerful, extremely fast, and torque driven electric scooter. Even travelling up hill or off-road will not slow the Dualtron Ultra down.
It is worth noting that it is possible to power the Dualtron Ultra with just the one electric motor in single wheel drive or with two.
The Dualtron Ultra is powered by a high capacity 60V 34.5Ah 2072Wh LG battery. This is a big, heavy battery capable of producing the power that is needed to achieve such an eye watering top speed. It is also what provides this electric scooter with enough powers to travel up to 80 miles between charges.
As you would expect this is the maximum range that can be achieved. This figure very much depends on the terrain, the conditions, and the style that you are riding. We found when we rode over hilly terrain and off-road we were averaging closer to 50 miles.
On the right side of the handlebars you will find the throttle control. You will also find the power button, a mode button, and an LCD display. The throttle is operated with the use of your finger. Simply pull the throttle trigger and the Dualtron Ultra will spring into action. As you pull the trigger harder the faster the scooter will go.
The mode button that is found on the display unit does exactly what you would expect. It changes the modes on the Dualtron Ultra allowing you to engage the cruise control function.
On the left side of the handlebars you will find two more thumb operated buttons. One button allows you to switch between eco and turbo mode. The other button allows the rider to switch between using both motors of just the one. As you would expect switching to a single motor greatly increases the battery life but reduces performance.
Front and rear disc brakes are controlled in in the same way the brakes on a bicycle or motorcycle are controlled.
On the right side of the handlebars is a LCD display. This LCD display provides the rider with various information. Such information includes speed, distance travelled, time, mode, and remaining battery life.
Ultra Wide 11″ Off-Road Tyres
The Dualtron Ultra is equipped with high grip, ultra wide off-road tyres. These tyres measure 3.9 inches wide and 11 inches in diameter while the tread is perfectly designed to offer the maximum grip in the wet and off-road.
Front and Rear Suspension
A front and rear high impact suspension is perfectly designed to soak up the largest of bumps while smoothing out small vibrations. The suspension is designed to offer a large amount of travel which makes the Dualtron Ultra ideally suited for off-road riding. Combined with the sheer power and torque provided by the motor, the Dualtron Ultra is one of the best off-road electric scooters available. It is also one of the most comfortable when it comes to riding on the road.
Front and Rear LED Lights
It is really nice to see that the Dualtron Ultra comes equipped with front and rear LED lights. These LED lights not only help you be seen should you want to ride at night, they also help light the terrain in front of you as you ride.
The Dualtron Ultra also comes equipped with a rear brake light.
What We Like About the Dualtron Ultra
We really love the top speed, the range, and the power that this electric scooter offers. There is no end to the amount of fun you can have with this thing. Not only is this one of the fastest electric scooters available you will find that even travelling up inclines of 35 degree will do little to slow it down.
It is not just the speed, power, and range that we love about the Dualtron Ultra. We love how easy it is to ride and features like cruise control. There is also the fact that this is an excellent and very capable off-road.
What We Do Not Like About the Dualtron Ultra
There is not a whole lot to complain about when it comes to the Dualtron Ultra. However, if we had to pick fault we would say what we do not like is the weight of this electric scooter. This electric scooter weighs more than 80 lbs so it is not exactly easy to carry. However, we do appreciate that when you have such a high powered electric scooter it is always going to suffer from heaviness.
We would have also liked to see some form of anti-theft device on the Dualtron Ultra. After all this is a seriously high end and expensive scooter and an alarm would go a long way to protecting it. Especially when you consider just how expensive this scooter is.
The Dualtron Ultra is an excellent electric scooter. It is also one of the fastest and has one of the longest ranges of any scooter available. This certainly is not what you would call a toy scooter. It is far too fast and powerful to even consider letting anyone under the age of 14 years old on it.
It works well on the road and up steep terrains and also works exceptionally well off-road.
The bottom line is this is a seriously exciting electric scooter to ride. Yes, it costs a little more than most other electric scooters but you really do get what you pay for. You will have to go a really long way to find an electric scooter as fast, as fun, or as well built.
