5 Reasons Why the EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro is the Ultimate Commuter E-scooter

With so many commuter electric scooters in the market, how does the EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro differ from the rest? 

The EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro electric scooter offers more power, comfort, and safety than most commuter e-scooters in the market, given its high specs and unique combination of features.

Although you can also classify the Ultra 8 Pro as a compact sport electric scooter, it has all the specs and features that make it an excellent choice for city commuting.

If you’re considering getting this EleKtro model, here are five reasons why it’s the ultimate commuter e-scooter.

5 Reasons to Try the EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro

Learn how this EleKtro scooter can solve your commuting needs.

1. Focuses on Safety and Security

The EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro includes a few safety and security features to keep you and your electric scooter safe on the road.

This EleKtro electric scooter uses an NFC lock to help solve the issue of e-scooter theft. Similar to those used in advanced door locks, this smart lock uses NFC chips to lock and unlock your e-scooter via a key card.

This feature gives you more control over who has access to your e-scooter and prevents others, especially thieves, from unlocking it and riding away. You’ll often find this feature on high-end e-scooters.

Although this feature can’t eliminate e-scooter thefts, it adds an extra layer of security for you and your e-scooter. It’s highly recommended to lock and secure your e-scooter when parked in public properly.

Meanwhile, the Ultra 8 Pro uses drum brakes to give you more safety on the road. Drum brakes offer a responsive and strong braking system, allowing you to stop immediately and safely during emergencies.

Generally, drum brakes also last longer, making them an ideal choice if you need a low-maintenance e-scooter.

Lastly, the Elektro Ultra 8 Pro features 360° lights that add a hip style to the e-scooter and provide a visibility light when night riding.

2. Prioritises Rider Comfort

Although most cities have smooth footpaths, you’ll still encounter rough paths and bumps along the way. To minimise the footpath’s impact on your ride quality, the EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro uses dual swingarm suspensions to cushion your rides.

The dual swingarm suspensions are designed to absorb the bumps and shocks on your front and rear wheels. As a result, you get the most smooth and stable ride possible.

Because of the suspension’s comfort and stability, you’ll often see dual suspensions on most high-end or high-performance electric scooters. Meanwhile, most commuter e-scooters use one suspension or none at all, putting the Ultra 8 Pro above most e-scooters in this segment.

Besides its dual suspensions, this electric scooter uses 8.5-inch front pneumatic and rear solid tyres. The front pneumatic or air-filled tyres help improve the e-scooter’s ride comfort, stability, and traction. Meanwhile, the solid rear tyre is puncture-proof, so you don’t have to worry about having two flat tyres because of the terrain.

Although suspensions are optional for this segment, they affect your overall ride quality. Plus, pair this with front pneumatic tyres making them the best electric scooter for a city commute.

3. Adjusts to Your Riding and Storage Needs

Most electric scooters have a fixed size, especially the stem length. As a result, this can affect your riding position, depending on your height.

The Ultra 8 Pro gives riders a more comfortable and stable riding position by providing an adjustable stem. If you’re on the taller side, you can simply unlock the upper part of the stem, pull it upward, and lock it into place.

This feature prevents tall riders from slouching or leaning forward while riding, giving them a more balanced and comfortable stance. So, if you feel the handlebars of commuter e-scooters may be too low, try the Ultra 8 Pro, and see if it’s more suitable.

Besides this, one of the aspects most riders look for in an electric commuter scooter is portability. Although this electric scooter weighs slightly more than some models in the segment, its 24-kg weight is still decent for moving it from place to place.

More importantly, its foldable handlebars make the e-scooter suitable for storing in tight spaces. For instance, you can fold the handlebars if you need to squeeze your e-scooter in a crowded parking space. Also, this feature adds extra convenience for storing or parking this e-scooter.

4. Offers Best-in-class Performance

A typical adult electric commuter scooter uses a single motor ranging from 250 W to 500 W. Meanwhile, the EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro uses a dual 600 W motor, producing a 1,200 W total motor power.

Why does a bigger motor power matter? A higher motor wattage enables an e-scooter to have faster acceleration, higher top speed, and better hill climbing ability. So, if you need an e-scooter that produces good speed, range, and power, the Ultra 8 Pro doesn’t lack performance.

Because of its dual motors, the Ultra 8 Pro can deliver a top speed of 55 kph (restricted to 25 kph in compliance with Australian e-scooter law) and reach a maximum range of 55 km per charge. Meanwhile, when it comes to inclines, it can ride through 20° slopes.

Given its dual motors, this EleKtro scooter uses a 48 V 15.6 Ah battery that charges completely within six to eight hours. The battery may have a longer charging time than other e-scooters in the segment, but it only means the battery has enough capacity for long and speedy rides.

5. Provides a Hip Design and Sturdy Build Quality

The EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro’s look is similar to other compact sport e-scooters in the market. However, what sets it apart from them and other commuter e-scooters is its 360° lighting system.

This bright, all-around lighting system adds a touch of modern style to the e-scooter and helps it distinguish itself from others.

Combined with its all-black colour and accented by its white branding, the e-scooter offers a good balance between a unique and minimalist design. It’s the perfect e-scooter if you’re looking for a distinguishable design without being too fancy or eye-catching.

Besides its design, the Ultra 8 Pro sports a durable aluminium alloy and solid parts. As a result, it can carry a maximum load of 120 kg, heavier than most commuter e-scooters.

Plus, its buttons, screws, and parts feel solid and high-end, making this e-scooter worth every penny.

What Makes the Elektro Ultra 8 Pro Different From the Rest?

While the EleKtro Ultra 8 Pro includes a few features or specs in other e-scooter models, it combines all the features you need for long-range and easy riding, a comfortable experience, and safety on the road.

It’s the best electric scooter for commuting in Australia if you need more power, range, and safety than the average e-scooter.

Ultimately, always consider your needs first to know if this is the right e-scooter for you. Then, check if the specs and features solve your concerns.
