The Segway Ninebot MAX G30 offers riders a well-rounded electric scooter that provides a balance of performance, design, comfort, and durability. Because of its decent specs and reliable brand, it is one of the best-selling electric scooter models in the market.


This flagship e-scooter delivers a 65-km max range and a top speed of 25 km/h, as per e-scooter laws. It also includes durable 10-inch air-filled tyres, a front drum brake, and a rear regenerative brake for extra efficiency and safety.


However, before buying a Segway Ninebot MAX G30 in Australia, make sure you know its key specs and reviews from other riders. To help you learn more about this cult favourite, read our Segway Ninebot MAX G30 review.

Performance

Speed

The Ninebot MAX G30 provides riders up to 25 km/h of top speed, which is the speed limit for e-scooters in Queensland and ACT. Unlike some e-scooters, the speed can no longer be upgraded manually to ride at higher speeds. Overall, it offers good acceleration. 


Before riding an e-scooter in public, check if your city’s electric scooter law allows private e-scooters in public. Most states and territories in Australia still prohibit riding private e-scooters on public roads and spaces.


Range

The Ninebot G30 offers a longer range than most commuter e-scooters. It can deliver up to 65 km of range, thanks to its 42V, 551WH battery. However, note that this is the max range you can get under ideal conditions. In reality, you get less than 65 km in a single charge due to different factors, such as rider weight, riding style, and terrain. Nonetheless, this Segway e-scooter will still offer a long-range ride per charge since it has a large battery capacity.


Portability

Unfortunately, portability is not the strongest feature of the Segway Ninebot MAX G30. It may be a foldable electric scooter, but it weighs 18.7 kg. Most e-scooters weigh 12-15 kg, making the Ninebot G30 heavier than usual. While it is a weight that can still be carried, many might find it a hassle to bring them, especially when going up the stairs.


However, its size makes up for this, as it measures 1167 mm X 423 mm X 1203 mm when unfolded and 1167 mm X 423 mm X 534 mm when folded. It is still convenient to store in small spaces, under desks, or inside large cabinets.


Ride Quality

The Ninebot G30’s ride quality is one of the most impressive in the market. The 10-inch pneumatic tyres offer a good amount of cushioning when riding uneven or rough paths. Plus, the 350W motor power allows you to power through most terrains. The specs don't include a suspension, but the overall ride quality is enough to make your trips smooth and comfortable. 

 

Components

Battery

The Ninebot Max G30 battery enables the e-scooter to ride longer distances and take on most terrains. It uses a fast-charging 36V, 551 Wh battery. It also includes a battery management system equipped with overheating, over-current, over-charge, and short circuit protection. These extra battery features make the battery more efficient and safer than some e-scooters in the market. Plus, the fast-charging feature enables you to charge the battery for 6 hours tops.


Dashboard and Controls

The dashboard and controls of the Segway Ninebot MAX G30 feature a small centre LED display, the power button, thumb throttle, and handlebars. The display shows the three riding modes, current speed, power levels, maintenance signals, and Bluetooth connectivity. Overall, it is a practical and intuitive dashboard that’s easy to understand and use. Everything is within reach, allowing you to operate the controls easily while riding.


Design

When it comes to the overall design of the e-scooter, it sports a minimalist design reminiscent of a few e-scooter models in the industry. However, its yellow accents and black colour make it distinct from the rest of the market. Key design features include a one-step folding mechanism, front LED lights, LED rear light, and an IPX5 rating. Moreover, it uses durable materials and carries up to 100 kg of rider weight.


Tyre

The Segway Ninebot MAX G30 features 10-inch pneumatic tyres which can withstand multiple punctures and tyre deflation. These pneumatic tyres are not only durable but also add more suspension to the ride. It helps cushion the ride when riding on rough or uneven roads. Plus, the rear-wheel-drive provides better acceleration, braking, and stability.


Brakes

Finally, the Ninebot Max G30 features a front drum brake and a rear regenerative brake. Although drum brakes provide a safe and powerful braking power, many consider disc brakes to be the safest for e-scooters. Moreover, many e-scooters in the same category use disc brakes, making the G30 slightly less appealing than those with better braking systems. Nonetheless, the regenerative brake is a plus, helping you save more with your battery energy. 


Verdict

Overall, there’s no denying that the Segway Ninebot MAX G30 offers enough power, battery, range, and safety that make it an in-demand e-scooter. However, despite its popularity, some people hold back on buying the e-scooter due to its price. The e-scooter currently sells for $1,299 on Ride Hub, which may be a little expensive for some. Plus, it is relatively heavier than its competitors.


If you are looking for affordability and portability, then the Ninebot MAX G30 may not be for you. However, if you don’t mind these small factors, you get a reliable and well-performing electric scooter that’s sure to deliver comfort and quality.


Hopefully, this Segway Ninebot MAX G30 review helped you see if this is the e-scooter for you. Check out Ride Hub’s electric scooter blogs for more electric reviews and guides.
