The GT series electric scooters are lightning-fast with breakneck straight-line speeds and electrifying performance.
The GT1 scooter is powered by a high-end rear-hub motor that can generate an astounding output of 1,400 watts. The scooter can accelerate from 0 to 30 mph in 7.5 seconds and hit a top speed of 37.3 mph.
The performance figures get even more remarkable when it comes to the GT2 scooter. An incredibly potent 1,500-watt motor is fitted on each wheel, allowing the e-scooter to reach a staggering top speed of 43.5 mph. This mind-bending power translates into blazing acceleration, with the scooter reaching from 0 to 30 mph in just 3.9 seconds.
The innovative SDTC (Segway Dynamic Traction Control) technology on the GT2 scooter modulates the torque between two motors to maximize traction on slippery surfaces, resulting in improved performance and safety. The hill-climbing abilities of GT1 and GT2 are 23 and 30 degrees, respectively.
Battery and Range:
Battery and range are the strongholds of the GT series. The GT1 and GT2 electric scooters are equipped with high-performance, energy-efficient batteries with capacities of 1008 Wh and 1512 Wh, respectively. Thanks to these highly advanced, innovative battery packs, the GT1 can travel up to 43.5 miles, whereas the GT2 offers an impressive range of 55.9 miles. An advanced BMS system with several protective features is also added, ensuring the battery cells’ longevity and safety at all times.
With such leading-edge battery technology, riders can look forward to relishing extended road trips and intercity commutes without any worry.
The GT series offers stupendous stopping power and complete control, courtesy of a high-tech hydraulic braking system fitted to both front and rear wheels.
The hydraulic brakes have twin pistons along with 5.5-inch (140mm) ventilated discs that enhance the efficacy and performance of the brakes.
By applying groundbreaking technology and invention in the GT series, Segway has revolutionized the suspension system of electric scooters.
The GT scooters boast a double-wishbone suspension at the front, whereas the rear is equipped with a trailing arm suspension. This adjustable damping suspension has multiple settings, allowing the users to fine-tune the ride height according to their needs.
The GT series comes with tubeless, all-season tires that are 11 inches wide. High-quality rubber is used in the production of these tires, and they are meticulously developed for better traction and superior road grip.
The ultra-wide tires can easily traverse bumpy terrains and rough off-road conditions while maintaining a comfortable ride.
The riders don’t have to worry about too many punctures as the tires have self-healing seals inside.
Design and Build:
Segway has adopted a unique and striking design language for the GT series that sets it apart from the competition. The e-scooters flaunt the most modern and jaw-dropping looks and are bound to turn some heads wherever they go.
The GT series is unmatched in terms of build quality. The aviation-grade aluminum alloy frame is incredibly robust and offers a smooth and comfortable ride on uneven terrains. Thanks to this unparalleled strength, the e-scooters can carry a maximum load of up to 330 lbs (150 kg).
The GT Series offers excellent control and outstanding riding stability even at higher speeds due to its low center of gravity, wide riding deck, and long wheelbase.
Lights and Display:
Segway has always designed its scooters with safety in mind, and the GT series is no exception. The GT1 and GT2 electric scooters are equipped with 900 Lumens LED front lights, LED daytime running lights, and turning signal lights at the front and rear of the scooter. Atmosphere lights are also available that can be customized to reflect your mood.
Two different types of displays are added to the GT series. The GT1 features a simple digital display, whereas a transparent PMOLED screen adorns the handlebar of the GT2, providing all the pertinent information to the rider like battery, ride mode, speed, turn signal status, etc.
A 45.2-inch wheelbase, 5.5-inch ground clearance, four different speed modes, and an IPX4 rating round out the incredible feature list of the GT series.
With its super-powerful motors, durable frames, and cutting-edge suspension systems, the GT series is in a league of its own. The state-of-the-art scooters offer extreme performance and optimal functionality, allowing the riders to relish their everyday commutes and unforgettable recreational journeys.
