Hiboy Titan Electric Scooter: The Lowdown…

If you’re looking for an e-scooter that will complete all your urban commutes and still manage light, off-terrain debris, then the Hiboy Titan is a perfect choice. This electric scooter comes with an 800W brushless DC motor that delivers enough “oomph” to yield a top speed of 25 mph and navigate hills with 20-degree inclines. It also packs a massive 48V 12.5AH battery that takes you up to 28 miles on a single charge.

You’ll also love the elegant design that features a compact and sturdy frame, which allows this beast to carry up to 220 pounds. The Titan exoskeleton rests on 10-inch anti-skid tyres, which work in unison with the full suspension to deliver an unrivalled riding experience. It also boasts a powerful dual-braking system that guarantees safe stoppage.

Other exciting features that make the Hiboy Titan a must-have e-scooter include the extra-large anti-slip stand deck, bright headlight and taillight for night riding, and bright LED display to monitor the mode, distance, and battery level. This electric scooter also boasts an intuitive folding mechanism and weighs 50.7 pounds, meaning it’s portable for carrying over short distances.

Hiboy Titan Summary

Based on its allure, performance, and configuration, the Hiboy Titan is one of the best electric scooters on the market. Armed with an 800W brushless motor, this machine allows riders to reach a pulse-racing speed of 25 mph and climb small hills effortlessly. In addition to the engine, the Titan comes with a massive 48V 12AH lithium-ion battery with enough juice to deliver a range of about 28 miles on a single charge.

The Hiboy Titan also prioritises rider safety and comfort, thanks to its innovative safety features. First, this electric scooter comes with dual-disc brakes and electronic braking to deliver enough stopping power—even when cruising at full speed. Second, its 10-inch tyres seamlessly fuse with the dual suspension to improve stability and comfort—even when riding in poor road conditions. Finally, it boasts an expansive, anti-slip deck that ensures scooter riders have free foot movement while cruising on all kinds of terrains.

Additionally, the Hiboy Titan also comes with elegant and well laid-out controls for straightforward riding. The brightly illuminated LED display allows riders to see the mode, battery level, speed and distance. You’ll also love the scooter’s solid and sturdy frame, made of aluminium alloy. Finally, its simple yet clever foldable mechanism allows this electric scooter to collapse into a smaller size that can fit in a car boot and similarly squeezed spaces.

Speed & Acceleration

If you relish the adrenaline rush of cruising at high speed, then the Titan is your best bet. Coming with a top speed of 25 mph in its class, it is among the fastest electric scooters you will find on the market. However, we recommend keeping your speed below 18 mph when you’re in the city to avoid unnecessary accidents.

Luckily, the Titan accelerates smoothly when you hit the throttle, and you have a choice between three riding modes, depending on where you are. You can use the slower modes when riding on city pavements and switch to turbo mode when zipping around the suburbs.

    Top Speed

    While the Hiboy Titan is not overly publicised on the market, it’s a better performer than most popular electric scooters. The powerful scooter delivers an adrenaline-rushing speed of up to 25 mph, thanks to its robust 800W motor. Its 48V 12.5AH lithium-ion battery produces enough juice to power the motor and deliver a range of 28 miles per charge.

      Hill Climbing

      The Hiboy Titan wasn’t designed for off-road riding. However, the 800W engine’s power allows it to deliver incredible hill climbing performance. While carrying an average-weight adult (e.g. 180 pounds), this electric scooter can effortlessly tackle hilly terrains with 20-degree inclines and maintain a commendable speed. However, its hill climbing ability will depend on the battery level and riding style among other conditions.

      Battery & Range

      Compared to most electric scooters in its category, the Hiboy Titan delivers one of the longest ranges at 28 miles. Of course, this wouldn’t be possible if it were not for the 48V 12.5AH lithium-ion battery.  The Titan’s battery and range make it an ideal choice for long weekend rides. The battery charges for 6-8 hours, so make sure that you plug it into the charger when you get home.

      Motor Configuration

      The battery is not the Titan e-scooter’s only robust, standout feature. It also boasts an 800W brushless motor for effortless riding on all urban terrains. The motor delivers a top speed of 25mph and allows this scooter to conquer rough terrains with 20-degrees incline without breaking a sweat. Moreover, it’s whisper-quiet and won’t produce any upsetting sounds while you’re zipping around the city.

        Performance Overview

        For any e-scooter enthusiast, performance is the primary consideration when searching for a machine. To Hiboy, performance is not all about having enough power and speed. This simple commuter scooter also lends itself some extraordinary braking power. Its dual-disc brakes and electronic brakes make it a breeze to bring the scooter to an abrupt halt. 

        Its anti-slip, anti-skid 10-inch tyres bring a sense of stability while you’re zipping around the city. Add the dual suspension into the mixture, and you’ll understand why this electric scooter is touted by many as an “urban beast.” Its perfectly welded and exceptionally designed body and extended deck add to the Titan’s strength and stability.

        Finally, the scooter’s controls are conveniently situated on the T-bar, making it a comfortable ride for all adults.

        Construction & Quality

        The Hiboy Titan’s construction is exceptional. The scooter’s body is made of reinforced aluminium alloy. All parts are excellently welded together, and the massive deck and handles are padded with a bumpy rubber mat for increased traction. In addition to the frame, the 10-inch pneumatic tyres are made from durable rubber.

        Suspension & Comfort

        The Hiboy Titan also boasts full suspension on both wheels. This means it is equipped to absorb shocks while riding on different terrains. So, even if you’re zipping around the rougher roads in your neighbourhood, you will still enjoy a stable and comfortable ride with the Titan.

        Ride Quality

        The Titan e-scooter offers fantastic ride quality, especially when riding around the city. Besides its sturdy and robust body, this electric scooter comes with an ultra-wide deck, full-suspension on both wheels, 10-inch pneumatic tyres and powerful brakes.

        Additionally, it boasts well-laid-out controls for convenience, a powerful motor and battery and an IP53 water-resistance rating.

        If you tend to get home after sunset, the Hiboy Titan will be your best companion. It comes fitted with a bright headlight that can illuminate any terrain at night. Additionally, it has a powerful taillight that shimmers in response to any pressure on the brakes, thereby signalling other motorists on the road.

        Braking

        The Hiboy Titan weighs up to 50.7 pounds and is designed to carry a maximum load capacity of 220 pounds, so it requires incredible braking power to come to a halt. The good news is that it boasts dual-disk brakes and responsive electronic braking. Riders can stop the electric scooter using the dual-disc brakes or combine the disc and regenerative brakes for more controlled stops.

        Portability

        Although the Hiboy Titan is a bit too heavy to carry over long distances, we like that it has a simple folding mechanism that allows it to collapse into a smaller product, which can fit in any car boot. It also comes with a collapsible stem that folds onto the deck. However, the handles don’t latch onto the rear fender, so carrying this electric scooter can overall be cumbersome.

        Tyres

        Another feature that contributes to the Hiboy Titan’s stability and performance is its 10-inch pneumatic tyres. These broad and thick tyres boast deeper lines that offer anti-skid and anti-slip properties, thereby ensuring smooth and stable rides on all urban terrains. Although these tyres aren’t 100% puncture-proof, they are durable and generally resistant to the stones and twigs that you will encounter on your rides.

        Deck

        Since the Hiboy Titan is designed for adults, it boasts a solid and expansive deck. With a 48 cm by 20 cm deck, this electric scooter gives riders enough foot space for a comfortable ride. With such a massive deck, you can take on small bumps and potholes without worrying about jeopardising your stability and comfort.

        Controls & Display

        Although the Titan has multiple controls on the T-bar, they are conveniently positioned for easy reach. Since this electric scooter has rear and front brakes, you’ll find brake levers on each side of the handlebar. The on/off and mode buttons are on the left handlebar. The horn and headlight buttons are below the handlebar. The nicely lit LCD display is centrally positioned to allow riders to track the range, battery level, speed, and riding mode.

        Water Resistance

        The Hiboy Titan is rated IP53 for water resistance. What this means is that its accessories and components are fully encapsulated and won’t be compromised if you ride in slight showers or after a downpour. However, it is prudent that you only ride in the rain when there’s no other choice, and please don’t submerge the electric scooter in water while at it!

        Reliability

        With its robust motor and battery, innovative design, extra-large deck, superior braking power, dependable 10-inch pneumatic tyres, and IP53 water-resistance rating, the Hiboy Titan is highly dependable.

        Warranty & Customer Support

        There is a 30-day return policy for the Hiboy electric scooter, although a 10% cancellation fee is imposed if the product is returned after 48 hours. There’s no mention of any warranty on the site. 

        Most people claim the customer support is sluggish, and the earliest you can get a response is after a day or two.

        Known Issues

        Although the Hiboy Titan has done a tremendous job overall, riders have reported a few issues. First is the rigidity of the electronic braking, which some users say has caused falls. Second, the handles don’t lock in place when folded, which makes carrying this electric scooter from one point to another a daunting task. Other riders claim that the tyres are not durable and usually go flat after a few months. Finally, there is the problem of the brakes producing a squealing sound when riding at top speed.

        Maintenance

        If you want to keep your Hiboy Titan efficient and durable, then you will need to perform a few maintenance tasks. First, ensure that the electric scooter is dirt and debris-free. You will also need to inspect the tyres for pressure and check for any punctures. Then make sure that all screws are well tightened before you head out. Finally, regularly adjust your brakes to avoid slips and falls—especially after a downpour.

        Hiboy Titan: Is it worth the money and is it worth buying?

        With a decent top speed of 25mph, a range of 28 miles and a plethora of top-notch features and functions, the Hiboy Titan is an excellent choice for riders who love speed and superior construction. Besides boasting a powerful motor and battery, incredible braking power and suspension, and robust, high-performance tyres, this electric scooter also comes at an excellent price. Compared to other scooters with similar features and functions, the Hiboy Titan is a bargain, and thus offers excellent value for every pound you spend on it.
