Turbowheel Swift vs Dart & Ninebot Max

Ninebot Max vs Turbowheel Swift & Dart Scooters Comparison

Compared to the Ninebot Max

Another scooter in the similar price bracket  is the Ninebot Max. In just about every comparable metric, the Max comes up short, possessing a smaller battery, lower speed, no suspension, no rear physical brake, the handlebars do not fold in, it even weighs more too. While it does offer some unique bells & whistles, such the Ninebot App, as a functional scooter, it is not nearly as capable as either the Turbowheel Swift or Dart.

Advantages:

By raw specifications alone, the two models are very similar in capability. The main reason why we held back from offering this model, until now, was the lack a front brake. While the rear drum & regenerative braking may be adequate for most circumstances, where you need to stop suddenly from 23MPH, a front brake is essential!

  • Front Drum Brake: there’s various pros & cons to the disc brake on the Dart & the drum brake. On the pros side, these are usually less maintenance as it’s fully covered, they last longer, more tolerant to irregularities in the rim or axle, but do not have the same stopping power. 
  • Rear Solid rubber Tire, Immune to Flats: on the earlier Darts, with the Hota tires, the tires/tubes did not hold up well in the summer heat. With these rear solid tires, it means you will be spending more time on the road, instead the laborious chore of  replacing an innertube   
  • Improved Suspension: with the suspension dampeners installed at an angle, this allows the shocks to travel less carrying a Rider in the 160-200lb scale, where there was a tendency for the Dart’s suspension to ‘bottom out’ at the higher end of this spectrum.
  • Carry Handle: in addition to the trolley kit on the Dart, the Swift now has a carrying/tote handle preinstalled.   
  • More Effective Rear Fender: the rear fender now extends further back, reducing the amount of wash thrown up from the road.  
  • Price: with practically the same performance capabilities as the Dart, for $125 less.

Disadvantages:

  • Air tires are more comfortable: air tires can make the ride more comfortable by softening some of the harshness from the road surface. One has to weigh this benefit with the probability of getting flats.    
  • No flashy LEDs on stem or under deck: although equipped with the more functional embedded deck light, the Swift does not have the same degree of ‘wow factor’ as the Dart. 

Turbowheel Swift/Dart LG M26 Battery Pack vs Sincpower 2600

LG Battery Pack vs Sincpower

One the key improvements that’s offered on the Turbowheel Swift & Darts, over the same scooter with other branding, is that battery pack is composed of LG M26 battery cells, instead of the Chinese Sincpower 2600. On paper these cells are virtually identical, with a 2.6Ah capacity, 10A output; the advantage of the LG cells is that they’re backed up by a multi-billion dollar company, with state-of-the-art ISO certified manufacturing facilities to ensure absolute consistency from one production batch to another. It is not known how well the Sincpower cells will hold up over time, since there’s no published datasheet on the cells.

Frequently Asked Questions:

  • What is difference between some other sellers offering this Scooter & the Swift?
    Besides the LG battery pack, the biggest improvement offered on the Swift is the front brake. In addition, this updated model has stiffer suspension for typical ‘heavier’ 160-200lb riders, trolley wheel kit & a rear handle, which most other sellers charge extra for.   
  • Are solid front tires also available?
    If there’s enough demand. Based on our sales experience with the Dart, +90% of all flats were on the rear tire, the frequency of getting flat tires on the front wheel should be very low.
  • Is there a seat available for Swift? 
    Yes, we have these available now for $115 inclusive of shipping.
  • Are the front lights effective for riding in the Dart? 
    The Swift has 3 frontal LEDs that are positioned 5″ from the ground. This works at short distances, but for better illumination, you may want to consider adding a handlebar mounted headlight as well. 
  • Is the Swift water-resistant, can I use it in the rain?
    The Manufacturer’s recommendation is that you try to avoid excessively wet conditions, puddles & standing water. During assembly, the factory has sealed up the entry points to the battery compartment, etc; however, if it is very wet, water may find its way into the sensitive interior, resulting in water related damage. 
  • How many charge/discharge cycles can one expect from the battery pack? 
    This depends on a variety of factors: the weight of the Rider, high usage of regenerative braking, frequent hill use, how hard it’s driven, weather conditions (freezing temperatures are not ideal for Li-ion batteries), & 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.
  • What is the expected lifespan of the rear tire & who much does it cost to replace
    Estimated to last for 800-1000 miles, depending a number of factors like weight, riding style, aggressive braking, etc. The rear tire can be changed with a vise. Customers can send the rear motor in to have the tire changed for $125 including shipping with the continental US. 
  • What are the ‘Gears’, how do they correspond to the speed
    Although there are no physical gears, because it’s a direct drive hub motor, there are the three virtual gears that allow the Rider to quickly set the top speeds to 12, 19, and 23mph respectively. This is could be useful if lending the scooter to a friend or family member to try out.
  • Is cruise-control available, how does this work?
    The P17 setting enables/disabled cruise-control. When enabled & you hold the throttle engaged at the same speed for up to 5 seconds, the scooter will continue to sustain the speed after you release the throttle. Pulling either the throttle or the brake will disengage the cruise control. Please be advised, that using cruise-control can be dangerous if not used correctly!
  • 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 will be able to find a list of available parts through our online store.
  • What type of warranty offered?
    We offer a one year warranty for the parts & labour. It does not include shipping costs, which may be between $50-$150 (within the US), depending on the distance from our repair center in Tucson, AZ. While other dealers of Electric Scooters typically only offer a 3-6 warranty for the battery pack, we stand by all our products with a full one year warranty. Exclusions to the warranty are wear-and-tear & improper use, please refer to our warranty page for the full terms & conditions.
