6 Best Electric Scooters for Hill Climbing

For people who live in hilly areas, riding any kind of commuter electric scooter is not enough. Riding electric scooters meant for hill climbing will not only make it easy for you to climb slopes but also ensure that your electric scooter can handle the power needed to climb.


Regular electric scooters can only climb angles of 10-12 degrees, which is enough for slightly steep slopes. On the other hand, e-scooters built for climbing can ride 25-30 degree slopes. 


To help you find electric scooters that can climb steep hills, we listed down the best electric scooters for climbing hills in Australia.


1. Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11 +

The Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11+ has been featured in some of our e-scooter lists, and that’s because it has proven itself as one of the best electric scooters in its category. Unsurprisingly, it’s also one of the best electric scooters for climbing hills.


This electric scooter has a climbing angle of up to 45 degrees, which is higher than most e-scooters in the market. Moreover, it features high speeds, a long range, and a powerful motor and battery that tops most of its competitors. Just look at its specs below:

Despite its bulky build, the Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11+ offers a stable and comfortable ride on rough terrains thanks to its pneumatic tyres and shock absorbers. However, some people might not like its heavy weight and extremely long charging time. Moreover, this is an electric scooter that can be difficult for beginners to handle. Despite these few cons, no one can disagree that the Kaabo Wolf Warrior 11+ is one of the best hill-climbing e-scooters out there.


2. Mearth GTS MAX

The Mearth GTS MAX is one of Mearth’s flagship electric scooters, and it offers one of the highest specs that you can find for off-road electric scooters. More importantly, it has a climbing angle of up to 30 degrees. Accompanied by a powerful motor and battery capacity and a durable build, the Mearth GTS MAX makes climbing hills easier for you.

When you ride and handle the Mearth GTS MAX, you can feel that it’s a well-made electric scooter not only in terms of the material but also the performance. It’s an exciting electric scooter to use thanks to its high speeds, long range, braking system, and comfort while riding. However, some people might find the scooter heavy or the display smaller than other models.


3. Mercane WideWheel Pro

The Mercane WideWheel Pro is Scoot City’s latest addition to our shop. Due to its no-nonsense design, wide tyres, and smooth performance, it has become one of the best electric scooters in 2020, and one of the best electric scooters for hills in Australia. Although it can only climb up to 20 degrees of incline, the Mercan WideWheel Pro has enough climbing torque to get you through steep hills.

Besides climbing hills, the Mercane WideWheel Pro is an amazing e-scooter to ride because of its acceleration and ability to ride most terrains. However, the electric scooter is best to ride on smooth and dry terrain because of its solid tyres and stiff suspension. Despite this, the Mercane WideWheel Pro offers better features and performance for its price range.


4. Dualtron Thunder

One of the best electric scooters for hilly areas, the Dualtron Thunder is a properly built e-scooter that features a burst output power of 5400 W and up to 80 kph of speed. In terms of quality and performance, it rivals the Kaabo Wolf Warrior. When it comes to climbing hills, it climbs hills with up to 25-degree slopes.

Overall, it’s a powerful electric scooter that’s great for off-roading and hill-climbing. The long range and high speed make it an enjoyable e-scooter to ride. However, like the other e-scooters on this list, the Dualtron Thunder is not meant as an entry-level scooter because of its weight, speed, and power.


5. Nanrobot D4+

At first glance, the Nanrobot D4+ already screams “off-road” with its rugged appearance, wide tyres, and motorcycle-style coil shock absorbers. However, the Nanrobot D4+ is not just about the looks as it is an ultra-tough electric scooter that can withstand any terrain and riding condition. More importantly, it can climb steep hills of up to 45 degrees. 


Check out the specs below.

Notice how the Nanrobot D4+ is lighter than most e-scooters on this list. It's still heavy but it can also be a good commuter scooter if you can lift it. However, the Nanrobot D4+ shines better on off-road tracks, so make the most of it outside the city.


6. Qiewa Q1 Hummer

Lastly, the Qiewa Q1 Hummer has positioned itself as one of the best electric scooters for climbing hills in Australia. Thanks to its sturdy build, multi-terrain tyres, and powerful motor and battery capacity, it can climb hills of up to 35 degrees.


See its specs below.

Besides the Qiewa Q1 Hummer’s hill-climbing ability, one of its most striking features is its impressive rider weight limit. With a 250 kg max load, it makes you wonder how a 25 kg electric scooter can carry that much weight. This just means that the e-scooter has been built for durability and toughness, perfect for extreme off-roading.
