What Makes the Dualtron 2 Stand Out

Comparing the Dualtron 2 to the Mini4 & the Speedway IV:

Around the world, Dualtron commands the highest reputation of Electric Scooters, in part, because they’ve been making these since 1999: 

  • Superior Grade Battery Pack: the Li-poly packs in the SW IV & Mini4 provide tremendous value-for-money for range & power, but they can be let down by poor reliability & a higher degradation curve over time. In contrast, the LG Li-ion cells on the Dualtrons have absolute consistency across the millions of cells that come off the production line. For you, this means that there will be worry & concern about the capability of your expensive investment, not only during the warranty period, but through the several years of your scooter’s expected useful life.
  • Powerful Motor: this is really the main selling point of the Dualtrons, the dual 800W motors can climb nearly any gradient you’re ever likely to encounter. The SW IV has terrific straight line speed, but can feel comparatively sluggish setting off, also in climbing performance. Because the two motors on the Dualtron are working in concert, there is less strain, with accompanying overheating on the DII line.
  • Larger 10″ Wheels: the Dualtron II SW IV have 10″ x 2.5″ air tires fitted to both front & back, this compares with the 8″x 2.0″ tires on the Mini4, where the rear tire is solid rubber & the front has air. 
  • Longer Deck, Higher Handlebars: because of the Dualtron’s power & speed, these scooters are purpose built for adults. As such, our EX scooter has the longer 23″ standing deck & higher handlebars that better serve the needs of our North American Customers.  
  • Front/Rear Disc Brakes: one of the main weaknesses of the Mini4 is it’s single rear-drum brake, that requires periodic adjusting to give you a  decent stopping distance; it can be supplemented by the regenerative brake as well, but has the fundamental limitation of relying on the traction of the single rear Wheel. On the SW IV & DII, braking is in a completely different class altogether; even if there were no regenerative system, the front/rear discs have 3-4x the stopping power of the drum brake. The calibers are also a great deal more accessible on the Dualtron than the Mini4, facilitating relative easy brake pad changes.
  • Better Suspension: suspension on the Dualtron & the SW IV are of a comparable quality. Dualtron II has the torsion-bar & rubber-block absorption with up to 3″ of travel; suspension on the SW IV has front springs & adjustable dual air shock-absorbers mounted on the back; there is no front suspension on the Mini4. 
  • Improved Folding Mechanism: folding/unfolding the latch mechanism on the Mini4 requires a specific sequence of, 1) applying the brake lever to relieve weight on the latch, 2) pushing down with your heel on the lever, 3) then pulling back to close the handle, it can be a challenge initially… The handle collapsing mechanism on the Dualtron can be done with one hand, it’s practically fool-proof.   
  • Easier Maintenance: changing a tire is designed to be simpler; by unfastening a couple screws on the Wheels, the tire assembly can easily slide out.

Overview of the Features on the Dualtron II
Organizational chart between Speedway, Minimotors & Dualtron

Background of Minimotors, Dualtron & Speedway:

Electric kick-scooters have existed in one form or another for well over a decade. Until relatively recently, electric scooters were powered by extremely heavy lead-acid batteries, limiting their range, power & usefulness. Advances in battery energy density, electronics & motor design are creating a quiet revolution, which we’re starting to witness take a dramatic impact in those cities that are rolling out Scooter sharing programs. While electric scooters are beginning to gain traction in the US, in other countries, like Korea, the sight of people using Electric Scooters to get about quickly & efficiently is commonplace.

Dualtron/Speedway—a division of Minimotors—have been making advanced state-of-the-art scooter designs since 1999. In the performance class, there is no serious equivalent contender in this space; Dualtron are the globally recognized as being the unrivaled market leader, with a reputation for quality & blistering performance across all their Electric kick-scooter range.

Minimotors, the parent Company, designs the scooters from their Korean offices. They are also concerned with all aspects of the R&D & most of the parts production—nearly everything is produced in-house, including controller, dashboard, frame, molding, handlebars, even the motors. Speedway & Dualtron Scooters are differentiated by the performance class of scooter they make, & the battery packs that are used. In a high-performance Scooter, these larger >750Wh batteries constitute more than half of the input costs of the finished product; to keep the costs down on the Speedways, these use the cheaper Lithium polymer packs, that have a higher probability of failure & degradation over time. On the Dualtron line, premium grade LG Li-ion cells are used for greater reliability & predictable performance. 

Control Features Functionality

The Dualtron Dashboard offers a concise easy to read layout of all the essential information you need for your journey, displaying: current speed, battery level, running time, odometer & the current power mode. Being backlit, it’s also completely readable while riding in low light conditions.

Some of the configurable settings are:

  • Speed control
  • Start method selection: instant, or push off
  • Cruise-Control mode
  • Electronic brakes settings: sensitivity of the electronic brakes
  • Speed Display (KPH/MPH)

Upgraded Suspension:

Building from the experience of several earlier generations, the Dualtron II series has a torsion bar & rubber block suspension to absorb impacts from the road surface, this system is designed to provide the Rider with up to 3″ of travel between the top of the tire & fender.

Additionally, both front & rear Wheels are fitted with large 10″ x 2.5″ air tires, that also contribute for making the ride experience on the Scooter second to none.

Comparative Advantages & Disadvantages

Advantages:

  • Power Advantage: if you need a Scooter for the hills, such as those in Seattle, San Francisco, or LA, then you need a model with dual-motors, the Speedway III/IV are probably not going to meet the grades.  
  • Value for money: the closest sibling to the DT 2 EX is the Dualtron 3. For raw specifications, the Dualtron 3 has a 456Wh larger battery pack, but the motor & controller are the same, providing a similar top speed & climbing performance but for $700 less than the newer model. 
  • Weight Advantage: besides the price, there is also a significant 18.4lb weight difference between the EX & DT3
  • Durability & Quality: the material stresses that a high performance Electric Scooter are subjected to are immense. The Ultra is a tried & tested product, racking up millions of cumulative miles from Riders around the world. While there are certain joints & components that have a limited lifespan, with the right care, the Ultra should last for well over ten years, potentially reaching 100,000 miles of operating life. 

Disadvantages:

  • ABS Brakes are safer: one of the key new features offered on the 3rd Generation Dualtrons is the new anti-locking brake system. This works in the same way that it does in a car, where the the system prevents the brakes from locking up & skidding by pulsing applied force to the calibers. 
  • Tires with Innertubes: the updated Speedway 3’s tires are tubeless, these are less prone to punctures/flats. Changing a tire on the DT EX can take between 30 minutes to 1.5 hours, depending on experience & the tools available.
  • Fixed Suspension: on the EX, there is no mechanism to adjust the suspension firmness setting. Whereas on the DT3, the Rider, with relative ease, can change the suspension locking position to one of three different positions; furthermore, there are five different interchangeable dampener modules that alter the ride characteristics on the suspension arm.  
  • Securing/locking the Scooter: while the EX can be physically secured with a cable lock or chain, without some aftermarket solution, there is nothing to prevent someone from powering on the Dashboard & pulling the throttle. This Scooter is not really designed to be left unattended outside.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is this $2,280 price inclusive of all taxes & duties?
    Yes all taxes are included in the list price. As of August 23rd, 2018, all Personal Electric Transportation products produced from China are now subject to the 25% tariff at import. 
  • Is the Dualtron 2 water-resistant, can I use it in the rain?
    The manufacturer’s recommendation is that you try to avoid excessively wet condition, puddles & standing water. During assembly, the factory has sealed up the entry points to the battery compartment, etc, if it is very wet, it may be possible to do damage to the Scooter by riding it through these conditions.
  • What are the different variants of Dualtron 2, will you carry them?
    Dualtron had offered four different versions of the DII: MX (1077Wh with Chinese cells), EX (LG 1202Wh), EX+ (1450Wh), & LTD (1657Wh). With the soon too be introduced Dualtron 3 series, they have have discontinued the MX & LTD. From our value analysis, the EX offers the best value-for-money, & will as allow us to offer this Scooter at around the $280price range. 

    Uniquely for our Customers, we have ordered the 2.5″ longer standing decks & 2″ taller handlebars from the LTD edition in these EXs.  
  • Will it be worth waiting for the Dualtron 3 series? When will these be available to buy?
    For the same speed & similar range specifications, the equivalent D3 Scooter is going to cost nearly $700 more. Upcoming capabilities to be found in the new D3 series will include:

    1. 3 step variable suspension system vs. fixed suspension on the DII series
    2. Wider 10-inch tubeless tire
    3. Double-acting zoom caliper brake
    4. LED handle post light, under-deck mood lighting
    5. ABS brakes
  • How many charge/discharge cycles can one expect from the battery pack? 
    This depends on many different factors: the weight of the Rider(s), high usage of regenerative braking, frequent hill usage, how hard it’s used, weather conditions (extreme cold is not good for batteries), & probably most importantly the end-point charging voltage. If you use the 5A fast-charger & set the termination point to 80%, this single action alone can extend the lifespan of the battery by up to 4-5 times! The other benefit of partial charging, is that it lowers the risk of degrading your battery pack through the use of regenerative braking on a full charge.
  • Will you be offering spare parts? What spares will I expect to need over time?
    Yes, part of being a ‘full service’ Company is that we offer the largest selection of spare parts for all our products. You can find a list of available parts through our online store https://www.ewheels.com/product-category/parts-speedway/
