GOTRAX Xr Electric Scooter Review

GOTRAX Xr Electric Scooter Review

GOTRAX’s latest product, the Xr e-scooter, is a promising sub-$400 entry

GOTRAX has a new under-$400 scooter coming to replace the very-reliable GXL V2. It’s called the Xr and you can also have it in Ultra guise, with a more potent e-motor and larger battery pack. Its main rivals are the likes of Swagtron Swagger 5 ($299), Xiaomi M365 ($349), and Segway Ninebot ES2 ($589) - as you can see, pretty rough competition. We had a go at the GOTRAX Xr and here’s what we can report.

Segway Ninebot Max Electric Scooter Review

Segway Ninebot Max Electric Scooter Review

Initially an Indiegogo project, the Segway Ninebot Max has got everybody talking recently

The Segway Ninebot Max electric scooter is powered by a 350-watt e-motor and trumpets a maximum range of 40 miles. That’s quite impressive, but at the same time, the Ninebot Max is a rather large scooter with few folding options, which puts a dent in practicality. In fact, it could be more destined to e-scooter fleets than personal daily use, although if space is not a commodity for you, the Ninebot Max will not disappoint. Check out the review below to see if this is the e-scooter you’re looking for.

Turboant X7 Electric Scooter Review

Turboant X7 Electric Scooter Review

We had a go at Turboant’s X7 electric scooter and it did not disappoint

The entry-level electric scooter niche is a cutthroat affair right now. Companies that are more or less known in the scooter industry are battling for a piece of the pie as more and more riders are looking at e-scooters as a solution to avoid clogged city traffic or simply as an alternative to shabby public transportation networks that don’t properly cover their areas.

Enter Turboant and their X7 electric scooter, a contraption that’s looking to dethrone the hugely-popular Xiaomi Mi M365 and steal some of its customers. Turboant was kind enough to send us the X7 for reviewing purposes, so inevitably, we took it for a spin. Our impressions are for you to read in the hands-on review that continues below.

Take Your Love for British Luxury to the Sky with the Airbus ACH130 Aston Martin Edition

Take Your Love for British Luxury to the Sky with the Airbus ACH130 Aston Martin Edition

British automaker makes its mark in the world of aviation

Aston Martin is ringing in the new year with its first product launch, except it’s not really an official Aston Martin creation. It’s called the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition, and it’s the first fruit in what is expected to be a long and lasting partnership between the British luxury car maker and Airbus Corporate Helicopters. Yes, the ACH130 is not a car, but, rather, a luxury private helicopter that’s been dressed from cockpit to tail rotor with all the luxury goodness that we’ve come to expect from Aston Martin.

All told, the ACH130 Aston Martin Edition comes with a range of four exterior and interior designs created specifically by Aston Martin. The ACH130 Aston Martin Edition is already available on request and deliveries are expected to start in the first quarter of 2020. No word yet on how much one costs, but be advised that a “standard” Airbus ACH130 starts at $3.3 million.

Emaxusa Electric Scooter Review

Emaxusa Electric Scooter Review

Here’s a no-nonsense scooter that won’t put a hole in your budget

Not every electric scooter out there is about all-out performance. In fact, most commuters don’t need souped-up e-scooters to cover that last mile from the underground or bus station to their home, so this is where the Emaxusa e-scooter comes into play.

It’s definitely not the most tech-ladden, high-performance electric scooter on the market but it comes wrapped in a sleek, no-nonsense package destined for adult riders that want a particular dose of comfort first and foremost. Let’s find out more about the Emaxusa e-scooter.

Most Anticipated 2020 Lego Speed Champions Car Sets

Most Anticipated 2020 Lego Speed Champions Car Sets

2020 is set to continue the upward Lego Speed Champions trend we saw in 2019

Lego won’t slow down its Speed Champions range expansion in 2020, which means one thing: we are in for some interesting new sets which, in case you didn’t get the memo, will be 25% larger (eight-stud wide instead of six-stud wide) than the previous ones, so this basically means more details without the use of stickers and the fact that you’ll be able to fit two mini-figures inside a car, as it will no longer use a centrally-mounted steering wheel setup.

The Danish toymaker has confirmed five 2020 Speed Champions sets so far, but in typical Lego fashion, we’re willing to bet that more builds are going to be announced along the way. In all fairness, we’re eager to get our hands on each and every of these sets, so that’s why we’ve included all of them below. Luckily, we won’t have to wait too much for them to hit the stores (physical or online, for that matter) as Lego’s planning to launch them on January 1, 2020. They’re not yet on sale, but we’ll update the article with extra links once they hit the market.

Best Lego Speed Champions Sets of 2019

We look back on the best Lego Speed Champions car sets of 2019

2019 was a good year for Lego fans around the world, particularly for those who have learned to cherish the Danish toymaker’s Speed Champions sets, as the brand has been churning out some interesting builds.

What’s more, Lego isn’t keen on slowing down its Speed Champions charge, so 2020 is bound to bring its fair share of stunning car sets to our desks. We’ll treat that topic in a separate article, though, so for now, let’s see what were 2019’s best Lego Speed Champions sets.

The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo and Urus ST-X Lego Speed Champions Set Could Be The Coolest So Far, Or Is It?

The Lamborghini Huracan Super Trofeo and Urus ST-X Lego Speed Champions Set Could Be The Coolest So Far, Or Is It?

There’s something we deeply dislike about one of the cars…

We’ve got a lot of love for Lego’s car sets, and some of our favorite desk boosters are Speed Champions-branded. Lego’s move to branch out and launch this new category back in 2015 is something we’ve been applauding from day one. The sets are small enough to build in your lunch break, and they won’t eat up as much space on your desk as a Creator set, for example. That said, the Speed Champions family just added a new member. Two, in fact: say hello to the plasticky Huracan Super Trofeo Evo and Urus ST-X.

Fancy a Gaming Chair That's Inspired by the GT-R? Nissan Has One, Sort of

Fancy a Gaming Chair That’s Inspired by the GT-R? Nissan Has One, Sort of

As far as gaming chairs go, we can’t remember any that are inspired by a car’s seats

Fellas, since there’s an official-y National Video Games Day celebrated in the US of A on September 12th, it’s only natural to have our news feeds flooded with all sorts of marketing gimmicks that would attract even more fans (to be read buyers) to the already-big industry that is video gaming. And believe it or not, esports are coming in hot as a rapidly-growing niche.

OK, but what’s the automotive industry have to do with it? Well, it turns out Nissan got its designers’ creative juices flowing with three esports chair designs that are inspired by the carmaker’s GT-R, LEAF EV, and Armada SUV household names.

Ramsmobile's 999-Horsepower RM-X2 Is Out For Rezvani Tank Blood

Ramsmobile’s 999-Horsepower RM-X2 Is Out For Rezvani Tank Blood

Think of it as the dragon of the automotive world

There’s no shortage of alien-looking SUVs and supercars/sports car looking for eccentric owners. The Rezvani Tank is one of the first contraptions that come to mind, but so does the 1,200-horsepower Zenvo TSR S and its active rear wing or the Apollo IE.

But there comes a time when a crazy manufacturer you thought you never heard of concocts a devilish vehicle that brings more questions than answers. Ramsmobile is one such carmaker. In fact, Ramsmobile describes itself as “a manufacturer of luxury off-road vehicles,” but it also produces Hybrid-X doors made of fiberglass, carbon fiber, and stainless steel. The company is rooted in Belarus but makes its SUVs in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We, however, stumbled upon them thanks to the RM-X2 bulletproof SUV. Well, it’s not exactly an SUV, but bear with us while we clear the air for you.
