Nanrobot LS7 Original Summary

Nanrobot is a world-class scooter brand with superbly designed, fast, advanced and efficient scooters. Nanrobot electric scooters have a reputation for being both reliable and practical. Their solid construction and quality parts ensure the scooter’s longevity. Each of their scooters is assembled at a state-of-the-art factory and tested rigorously before being shipped out from the Nanrobot warehouse. Their cutting-edge design makes them ride more smoothly than a lot of the other scooters on the market, and they are guaranteed to stay that way for years to come. The LS7 is an excellent scooter that reflects the high standards laid out by Nanrobot.

The LS7 scooter has a unique approach to convenience and comfort that captures the attention of novice and experienced riders alike. With its agile front and rear rubber suspension, effective hydraulic disc brakes, and powerful dual motors, the LS7 is highly efficient as a daily commute partner and as an adventure ride.  The dual 1800W max motors provide a ton of torque and can reach top speeds of 52 mph (84 km/h ). Additionally, the Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter comes with dual, front and rear hydraulic disc brakes that provide excellent stopping power. Riders can enjoy the freedom to go wherever they like and travel at top speed without having to worry about sudden stops.

The larger 11-inch pneumatic tyres are an excellent design spec, providing adequate stability and grip on most terrain. The tires also give the deck significant clearance for riding over obstacles. To further complement the ride quality,, the scooter features a front and rear rubber suspension system that absorbs shocks and vibrations from the riding track. In addition, the extra spacious deck that comes lined with grip tape offers riders a substantially comfortable riding stance. The handlebars are also ergonomically designed with rubberised hand grips for an extra firm hold.

This scooter is one of the most capable electric scooters on the market, and it is also one of the heaviest. Additionally, while it folds down at the stem, this does not make it compact, and it may not fit inside most car boots. For safety, the Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter comes with a powerful lighting system featuring 4 front lights, brake lights, and a turn signal light. The scooter is IP54 rated and can therefore ride in light showers. The robust kickstand also ensures safe parking.

Read on for an in-depth look at the Nanorobot LS7 Electric Scooter- the ultimate all-terrain scooter.

Performance Overview

The Nanrobot LS7 is an incredibly powerful and thrilling ride. The electric scooter uses dual 1800w rated motors that yield a combined remarkable output of 3600w. While this is not the fastest electric scooter, the dual motors will get you to staggering top speeds of 52 mph (84 km/h). Additionally, it comes with 3-speed gears and 2 drive modes for riders to choose from. Real-world tests have confirmed that the scooter achieves the nominal speeds indicated by the manufacturer. Additionally, the scooter comes with a sturdy hydraulic disc brake system, which is efficient and safe. The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter’s powerful motor is capable of pushing through 65-degree hills.

Top Speed & Acceleration

The Nanrobot LS7 is a scooter built for both the urban environments and the great outdoors. With a powerful 1800-watt dual electric motor, it can attain a delightful max speed of 52 mph (84 km/h), making it one of the fastest electric scooters in the market. It has an incredibly responsive acceleration; it goes from 0 to 21mph in just 3 seconds.

In addition to these great features, LS7 can also be customised with three different modes to accommodate the needs of new and experienced riders alike. The turbo mode delivers an ultra-fast top speed that is ideal for experienced riders. Activating Turbo mode means that the scooter will ride on dual motors. Alternatively, rookie riders or riders that want to cruise at lower speeds can activate Eco mode. Eco-mode (energy-saving mode) slows the top speed as it only engages one of the motors, allowing for a more comfortable ride.

Additionally, the scooter has 3 gears to further customise the ride experience: L1 maintains low speeds, L2 achieves medium speeds, while L3 maintains top speeds. The scooter also has an index finger throttle that is superbly responsive- a slight tap of the trigger releases bursts of power for quick, exhilarating acceleration that is immensely satisfying.

The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter is designed for adventure; the dual 1800w motors are powerful enough to take you up inclines of 65 degrees with ease so that you can enjoy your mountain excursions. However, the 65-degree incline is more on paper, and the maximum gradeability is dependent on the rider weight, state of battery charge and the terrain on the track.

Controls & Display

The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter features a unique wide, ergonomically built handlebar coated with soft rubberised grips that complement its sporty look. The brake levers are mounted on either side of the handgrips in the same fashion as a traditional bicycle. Pulling on these activates the front and rear brakes. For safety, you find a key lock that functions as a voltage cut-off (powering the scooter on and off).

The scooter has an intuitive user interface, and its minimalist design ensures that the rider can reach the buttons and controllers without moving your hand from the handgrip. The Turbo/Eco modes buttons are located near the left grip, allowing the rider to hit them with their thumb without losing control of the scooter.

The yellow button engages the Eco Mode, which employs a single motor and allows you to extend battery life. Alternatively, the red button engages the Turbo Mode and enables the scooter to use motors for more power, especially in rough terrain or when tackling inclines. On the right side – conveniently placed for your index finger – you will find a highly responsive acceleration lever.

The LCD display is fully illuminated, making it easy to read even in direct sunlight. The battery gauge shows how much charge you have left, and the gear indicator gives you an idea of the mode you’re riding in. In addition, the electric scooter has a three-speed gear shift, which allows you to choose how quickly you want to go by pressing the small button on the LCD Display.

      Battery Life & Range 

      The Nanrobot LS7 runs on a super-efficient 60V, 35Ah lithium-ion battery with an energy storage capacity of 2100Wh. The powerful battery delivers an impressive riding range of 62 miles (100 km) on a single charge. However, this depends on the terrain, weather, and rider’s weight. The high-power battery is the centrepiece on this scooter and is probably the most expensive part. As with most high-capacity batteries, it also accounts for a good share of the weight. The high weight reduces portability, but also offers incredible stability.

      The battery is not the generic lithium battery commonly found on most scooters; instead, it is a customised unit carefully built by LG Electronics, a reliable and reputable electronics company. For the LS7, Nanrobot offers a second variation that is rated at 60V 25 Ah. This option lowers the total mileage on a single charge to 37 miles (60 km) but is a cheaper alternative for buyers looking to save a few coins.

      The battery takes between 8-12 hours when using a single charger and 4-6 hours when using dual chargers. However, the manufacturer only issues one charger, and riders need to purchase the second charger separately.

      Motor Configuration

      The Nanrobot LS7 is a high-performance electric scooter with an innovative drivetrain that powers the scooter over most terrain. Powered by dual 1800-watt motors, they both generate an impressive 3600W of power that deliver high-speed acceleration. With an amazing raw speed of 52 mph and a maximum rider weight of 330 lbs (150kg), it is the perfect companion for your daily commute and the occasional adventure.

      Construction & Build Quality

      The Nanrobot LS7 is a fast and powerful electric scooter that has been engineered for speed. It has a sporty look and features a beefier design than the average e-scooter. The scooter is designed to embody urban sophistication with a hard-built look that perfectly fits into diverse environments. It maintains an unimposing exterior; the internal wiring is perfectly concealed, giving that tough-looking exterior a touch of elegance.

      The Nanrobot LS7 scooter is made from high-quality, industrial-grade aluminium alloy that can withstand years of wear and tear riding in varied conditions. The scooter’s design is crafted for comfort and safety. The handlebars feature a curved design that offers great control, while the hand grips are ergonomically shaped and rubberised for a comfortable and secure grip. Additionally, the controls and buttons are distributed in a way that doesn’t distract the rider. The stem is built from the same aluminium alloy as the rest of the scooter, and it is flex-free and built to last. The stem is sturdy and remains steady under heavy use.

      The unique, wide design of the deck lets every part of your foot maintain contact with the stepping plate, which adds stability and reduces your chances of falling off. Better still, its high clearance gives you a smooth ride over track obstacles. On the rear end of the deck, you find an integrated footrest. The LS7 scooter also features a front and rear fender that sit higher above both wheels than the typical e-scooters- a design element that keeps the tyres from grazing on the fenders while riding off-road. A robust kickstand is embedded to the side of the deck for easy parking of the scooter.

      Suspension

      The Nanrobot LS7 is one of the most comfortable and versatile electric scooters on the market. With high-quality suspension handled by dual (front and rear) full rubber suspension. It can absorb most bumps on the riding track. Rubber suspensions have several advantages over spring suspensions: they are lighter, thus reducing the overall weight. They are cheaper and come with changeable cartridges that the rider can customise by how hard or soft they want the suspension. Additionally, they reduce the overall noise since they do not have the clinking sounds typical of coil suspensions. Rubber suspensions are not an industry standard, and are only commonly found on Dualtron models and upcoming brands.

      Ride Quality

      The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter is one of the best scooters in the market on all fronts, from functionality to aesthetics. It is equipped with a spacious, heavy-duty deck, rugged frame, and powerful electric motor — all of which combine to deliver unmatched speed, stability, and comfort on the road.

      It is equipped with large 11-inch front and rear pneumatic tires to give you an optimal riding experience on all terrains. However, riders should note that the off-road tires don’t offer the best riding experience on paved roads as they offer less handling, are noisier and offer little traction on slippery surfaces.

      The scooter comes with a twin- front and rear, full rubber suspension that can be fine-tuned to the rider’s preference. The multiple shock absorbers reduce the impact of bumps and vibrations from uneven surfaces. Additionally, the extra spacious deck lined with grip tape offers riders a firm and comfortable standing position while riding.

      The handlebars are curved to offer riders a comfortable resting position for their stretched out arms. In addition, the rubberised grips ensure that the hands don’t slip out of position. The stem is sturdy without wobble, ensuring that the rider has the best riding experience.

      For safe rides, the scooter has sufficient lights that are both stylish and practical for night rides. Furthermore, the scooter comes with a horn to alert other road users. Nanrobot has also equipped this model with an effective dual hydraulic braking system to provide optimal braking power, allowing riders to cruise at top speeds with total confidence.

      Overall, Nanrobot has created an electric scooter that delivers the best riding experience out there.

      Braking

      The Nanrobot LS7 has powerful brakes that can handle its swift acceleration and fast speed. It has a front and rear Nutt hydraulic brake system that offers a combination of power and precision. Because the LS7 can move very fast, having powerful brakes that can bring it to a sudden stop is an important safety feature. Additionally, the brakes are highly responsive, and so the rider needs to brake gradually. They are also adjustable according to the rider’s liking. Moreover, the brakes are equipped with an ABS, which is ideal for safe emergency braking on slippery paths.

      Portability

      Although the Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter looks good and runs smoothly, it is pretty heavy. In fact, at 90 lbs  (40 kg), the LS7 is one of the heaviest scooters in its price range. Its heavyweight results from its beefy features, including the battery, dual suspension, dual motors, large tires, and a large deck. The trade-off is obvious: better performance across multiple metrics. The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter is also not the most compact model on the market. Despite having a folding mechanism, the folded dimensions on the LS7 may still be too large to fit in your car boot.

      Water Resistance

      The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter has an IP rating of IP54. This means that it is both water and dust-resistant. So, no matter what the weather may be, you won’t be caught off-guard with few water splashes of rain or a stray bit of mud. However, avoid riding through deep puddles — this can cause damage to its electronic components.

      Lights

      The Nanrobot LS7 features two LED lights attached to the stem, and the other two are embedded in the front part of the deck. It also has turn lights to signal the direction the rider is taking. The rear features a bright red brake light that activates upon braking, ensuring you are more visible to traffic. With this lighting system, there is no need for extra auxiliary lights; the lighting is efficient and is sure to illuminate the rider’s path.

      Tyres

      Nanrobot LS7’s tyres are not your typical, run-of-the-mill solid tires, and neither are they ordinary, flat rubber tires. Instead, these bad boys are 11-inch pneumatic all-terrain tyres that can take the rough and tumble of any terrain you throw at them. In addition, they are 3.5-inches wide, so they provide excellent stability and incredible traction when racing through rough terrain. However, you will experience a noisy ride, as is typical with knobby tyres on tarmac. Additionally, these type of tyres affects handling and reduces speed and acceleration on city roads. The fix- replace the tyres with regular asphalt optimised pneumatic tires or 50-50 adventure wheels.

      Deck

      The Nanrobot LS7 has a large, stable deck that provides a comfortable standing space for both feet. This doesn’t affect its agility — rather, it enhances its stability. With this extended deck, you can control the scooter more intuitively and manoeuvre through spaces more precisely. The deck also has a good clearance profile that allows riders to clear obstacles quickly, ensuring the scooter can handle even the most rugged pavements and dirt roads. The deck plate features runs of grip tape with the Nanrobot logo visibly imprinted along the middle length of the scooter. The side also features two charging ports.

      Reliability, Warranty & Customer Support

      The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter is a fantastic machine. One of its greatest strengths is its ability to handle many different types of terrain. Whether it’s a rough trail, cobbled streets or the well-maintained city streets, the LS7 conquers all with ease – while also providing plenty of speed and power for long rides. The scooter has a solid build and can handle up to 330 lbs  (150kg)  of weight. The Scooter has excellent selling points, such as beefy pneumatic tires, a high capacity lithium-ion battery, a robust aluminium frame, and an IP54 rating. These features are all critical to LS7’s running as the best performance scooter.

      Nanrobot offers a six-month limited warranty that protects the product from defects in the parts and workmanship. If the scooter malfunctions or fails to work, Nanrobot will replace it at no cost to the customer with a model that is equivalent in features and capabilities to the original model. However, the warranty is only valid for the original purchaser. For an additional  £108 ($149), you can extend your warranty for one year.

      Nanrobot has real-time messaging that provides a contact point for customers during and after purchase. This provides the best possible assistance with purchases as it delivers immediate responses to issues.

      Maintenance

      The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter requires regular maintenance, but it is a small price to pay for a scooter that performs well and lasts for years. The scooter cleaning and maintenance procedure is simple and does not waste too much time. The battery should be charged frequently, and it should be charged using a manufacturer recommended charger (smart lithium battery charger). If you plug in a fast charger, do not use a secondary charger at the same time.

      Also, check the tyre pressure before every ride, and remember to check and tighten the nuts and bolts regularly. The unit should also be cleaned thoroughly using a damp cloth and then dried before storage.

      Known Issues

      There are a few issues to note about the LS7.

      • Customers have complained about the durability of the rear brake pad
      • Some clients complained about the overly sensitive brakes.
      • The suspension has also been reported as squeaky.

      Is this Electric Scooter value for money and is it worth buying?

      The Nanrobot LS7 Electric Scooter is a powerful ride built to satisfy the needs of those seeking action and style. It is packed with features that set it apart from other similar models on the market today, including its ability to handle various terrains and ascend inclines, an efficient lighting system, and a responsive suspension. Furthermore, to ensure you get the most out of your ride, the scooter features a high-capacity battery capable of delivering a riding range of up to  60miles (100 km). So, you can go longer without having to find a power source.

      However, for £1600/ $2200, you can definitely find cheaper alternatives that deliver a near-similar ride experience. In fact, smaller and cheaper models like the Nanrobot D4 and D6 Plus will give you performance and ride quality that closely matches the LS7’s while remaining less bulky. But, if you’re sold on the LS7, and the budget allows for it, the LS7 is a good deal that comes with minor compromises.
