Top Speed & Acceleration

The Swagtron Swagger T7 has a pretty fly top speed and acceleration of up to 18 mph (29 km/h).

Battery Life & Range

The Swagtron Swagger T7 comes with a 36V lithium ion rechargeable removable battery that you can swap out for a spare when the need arises. Plus, the lithium ion battery can be removed from the scooter to charge separately – and you don’t need to hang around for the battery to charge if you have a spare on hand. The removable battery takes relatively quick to charge fully – at just 5 to 6 hours in total. The energy efficiency of this battery pack ensures a travel distance of up to 18.9 miles on the Swagtron.

Motor Configuration

Boasting the biggest motor power amongst any of the Swagtron scooters, this robust 350 Watt motor will give you the boost you need to reach those gnarly speeds of up to 18 mph. In addition to this, the kick to start function adds to the energy efficiency of the high-torque motor power stretching your max range by up to a 25% of extra ride time.

Construction & Build Quality

The build quality of this escooter is excellent. With a premium, aircraft grade aluminium, and easy to fold frame, this electric scooter is one of the hippest scooters around – a true SWAG mobile. With effortless features such as a electronic brake lever on the handlebars, and a rear foot-activated disc brake make, the Swagger 7 is not only a super fun way to traverse the city but is also safe way to get about quickly and cost-effectively. With a wide deck that can accommodate a max weight limit of 220 lbs. (99 kg), this electric scooter is one of those rare products that caters to most people searching for that SWAG experience. 10-inch honeycomb airless tyres makes riding the Swagger 7 a breeze and folding and packing away this Swagtron is also just as easy with its 3-step fold & go design system. The Swagger 7 is ideal for energetic riders that love to be on the move.

Suspension

The Swagtron Swagger 7 doesn’t have the best suspension due to its solid, airless tyres. However, the wider 10-inch honeycomb tyres and its 5-inch ground clearance help to soften the blow of the ground below you. But, at the end of the day chances are likely that you’ll be sticking to roadside surfaces (and not off-road terrain) so you won’t have much to be as worried as much about bumpy ground.

Ride Quality

A ride on the Swagger 7 promises a swift ride that is comfortable and safe but also exciting with its 10-inch airless tyres that have a greater ground clearance can reach commendable speeds of up to 18 MPH. While not the smoothest ride around, you’re still likely to have best time on this escooter.

Braking

Dual disc braking on this e scooter makes for an extra safe ride with a patented Autoguard feature. This clever feature deactivates motor power when braking increasing the effectiveness and stopping power of the brakes enabling riders to stop abruptly and safely, something which is definitely on busy urban street. To initiate the braking function is super easy, simply let go of the throttle and apply the front hand brake and/ or foot-controlled rear brake to stop safely with this escooter.

Portability

Made of aircraft grade aluminium alloy, this e scooter is surprisingly light-weight despite it weighing just over a tenth of the weight it is able to withstand. It also comes with an easy 3-step Fold Up & Go design; folding up the e scooter is as simple as can be – press the folding latch when you want to unfold the steering column and get going, and release the latch to fold up the escooter when it’s no longer in use.

Lights

This electric scooter comes with a back brake light as well as a front headlight perfect for when you want to nip about the streets at night. That said, you can’t be visible enough when riding at night, so you you might to consider adding extra reflector lights to the sides of the Swagger Swagger as well as wear reflective clothing as an added safety measure if you are commuting after dark.

Tyres

With the Swagtron Swagger 7’s 10-inch puncture-free Honeycomb tyres, you can just chill and enjoy the scenery around you without worrying about what’s below you. The beauty of Honeycomb tyres is that they provide a smoother ride than other more traditional non-pneumatic tyres ensuring that the journey ahead is as plain-sailing as can be.

Deck

The deck of the Swagtron Swagger 7 is extra wide to provide ample foot space for riders to secure their footing on this escooter, so they can really enjoy cruising about on city streets.

Controls & Display

A thumb-operated throttle and brake lever makes accelerating and stopping easy with the press of a thumb. Conveniently situated on the handlebar, you’ll also find the cruise control/ ride mode feature. An LED display screen switches this escooter on and off, adjusts gears and displays the battery life – all on one screen.

Maintenance

Airless Honeycomb tyres make for a hassle-free escooter with few to no maintenance issues as you don’t have to replace the tyres due flats caused by punctures.

Hill Climbing

The Swagtron Swagger 7 can ride hills easily albeit with slightly less torque and motor power. But who’s complaining when you’re still able to conquer steeper inclines and don’t have to be restricted to level ground?

Accessories & Upgrades

The Swagtron Swagger 7 e scooter comes with pretty hip accessories to showcase and compliment your newly acquired SWAG style. This is one of the few brands that ensure their riders have options when it comes to tyres, batteries, charges, seating or even add-ons such as a phone holder, and more.

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

This Swagtron Swagger is value for money if you are looking for an e scooter to zoom around town with on in true SWAG style. At a price tag of $555 or £398, you’ll be getting more than your money’s worth with this electric scooter that can also be used as a kick scooter.
