I've owned my M365 for 2 years now, battery is still good on it, can't really speak on battery for this one, but probably similar.

Just a heads up the after-sales support seems to be really poor or non existent. I'm in a gotrax Facebook group and there are tons of complaints. I have the elite and it's been pretty good so far so hopefully nothing happens. Their scooters only come with a 90 day warranty.

The elite has a larger battery and reflectors, and feels more sturdy with the battery in the deck instead of the stem. The ultra has an LG battery while the elite is unbranded.

I think given the price gap (elite was ~$500 all-in) the ultra is the better buy.

I'm a big guy @ 250lbs and the Elite works really well and is solid! plus the wider deck helps for stability for me. I can easily get the Elite up to 15 miles per hour on a flat roadway.

It's because it is going to be too cold to use in a few weeks and will be sitting until Spring if I buy one now.

My commute to work is one hour via bike, 19.6km one way, 78m up and 77m down. Is this viable to use to get to work assuming I charge it when I get to the office?

You would be pushing it...their claim of 28km is probably on flat road with a 100lbs rider if not less. Personally I wouldn't trust it to do it, but I'm sure someone with actual experience will chime in.

Thanks OP, I've been looking to upgrade over my wired electric scooter. The range of asfarasthecordgoes km is really a pain.

Anyone who buys this, PLEASE learn the rules if the road. Laws in almost every province have not caught up to this technology and you're in no man's land. You cannot legally ride on the sidewalk, you cannot legally ride in bike lanes, and you are therefore required to ride on the street.

Learn how to ride one of this safely and follow the ducking rules. Cities are littered with idiots riding these things dangerously wherever they want because they think it's a legal grey area.

Man you have an Elite also? I was there in the GXL post a lil while back, what exactly is your full lineup of scooters?? :P
Also whats your thoughts on the honeycomb tires so far?

I just made the plunge on this Ultra, I had thought the Ultra with the LG battery was the end all be all of the Gotrax line range wise.
All in I think mine just came out to somewhere just under $400? So the Elite version is worth about a $100 more your saying?

Just looking on amazon is the difference in battery really only 7.8 ah vs 7.0 ah? Doesn't seem all that much and the branded LG battery I'd imagine is a big deal since the battery quality is a huge component for these scooters.
The stem battery balance is a bit weird since its high and forward but don't think it affects the ride too much at these speeds imo.

Agreed, like I've said before I ride as slow as I can when passing people and I also have a bell incase I need to alert someone I'm passing. These scooters are fun as hell and very convenient for short-medium distances so I hope they stick around long term and are accommodated for like bikes.

Although I'm quite surprised you can't legally ride on bike lanes (location depending I suppose), that is a bit strange to see as bikes routinely ride much faster than escooters like these and bike lanes seem plenty wide.
