Electric scooters for commuting are basically your favorite childhood mode of transportation with a funky new makeover. I’m sure all of us remember taking our scooters out with our friends and going to explore the world with the fastest electric scooter for adults. Now, the electric scooter has become the choice of transportation for people who love an environmentally conscious way to commuting, and also adding an extra element of fun to their day to day activities.
In this article, we will go in great detail about the GoTrax GXL Commuter V2. If you are thinking about buying this scooter, then I would highly recommend reading this review thoroughly if you want an unbiased opinion, and then going ahead with your purchase.

Weighing just 26 pounds and having dimensions of 39 inches x 6 inches x 14 inches when folded, this foldable electric scooter is easy to fold up and keep in any storage cabinet or under furniture. The dimensions coupled with the weight make it very easy for people to take it along with them on public transport as well. The shell of the electric scooter is very durable and strong as well and is designed for rough and tough use. With a minimalistic approach to the aesthetics, the GoTrax GXL V2 is still quite impressive and has a sleek and classy look.
While some may think that the cockpit of this electric scooter is way too basic, we beg to differ. The GoTrax GXL V2 aims at keeping things simple and easy to understand and only displays information which is absolutely necessary as the speed of the electric scooter and the battery. Located on the top of the handle, the handle of the scooter has the brake and accelerators to control the speed at which your scooter is running. It is very compact but also very functional.
This electric scooter comes with a front regenerative brake and also a rear disc brake. And boy do we love the rear brake! It is an awesome feature that we did not expect to see in such an affordable electric scooter. The rear brake is operated by a hand lever and also ensures the safety of the rider.
The manufacturers of this scooter have kept in mind that the demographic that would be most interested in buying this electric scooter would be from the cities. This information made them realize that adding appropriate tires is a must. Pneumatic tires are the best for use on city roads. These tires are air-filled and have an inner core which is airtight. This inner core has pressurized air in it. This makes sure that the tire stays inflated even with a lot of weight on it. It also makes the ride a lot smoother than regular tires.
For an electric scooter under the budget of $300, it offers 12 miles when fully charged, which is not bad at all. Ans the worst case scenario if the scooter does run out of charge is that you can always just use it as a regular scooter.
Although this scooter has a front LED light which makes riding in the dark safer and easier, there are no brake lights. This addition would have been great.
For people using the scooter for the first time, latching the electric scooter into its portable position can be a little tricky, but eventually, they get a hang of it.

I’m Brian who is the brain behind Future sport.
I have been a big enthusiast of outdoor sports and riding activities like biking, scooting, skateboarding, go-karting and many more and have been doing this for almost 10 years. I have owned a number of bikes and other sports gears over the years matching different trials I hit regularly.
When I started to get a lot of questions from friends and family about riding vehicles and gears, I decided I can help a big group through a blog something like Future sports. And as I discussed the idea with my friends who had similar interest few of them weighed in and that is how Future Sports became a reality.
