PHYSICAL 

Whether we talk of Hiboy Max Pro or Gmax Ultra, you get folding capabilities on both electric scooters. So both are aces in this field. However, when we compared the tire dimensions of both the vehicles, Hiboy Max Po stands at pneumatic tires of 11 inches in comparison to 10-inch air-filled tires Pog Gmax Ultra. So, Hiboy offers a better grip of the terrain in extreme weather conditions of thunderstorms, rain, or even snow than Gmax.

Now let us talk about the weight of these vehicles. Hiboy Max Pro has a weight of 34 lbs, which makes it a sturdy e-scooter variant, whereas Gmax Ultra weighs around 46.3 lbs, which is quite bulky for an e-scooter. So, Gmax Ultra will be preferable for young adults who can handle their weight while managing it for daily commutes, whereas Hiboy Max Pro holds a place for all owing to its lower weight as it's more manageable.

The max load capacity of Hiboty Max Pro is 256 lbs, whereas Gmax Ultra is 220 lbs. So, despite being heavier, it supports less weight than Max Pro, which makes it lose one point against Max Pro. 

Both variants, Hiboy Max Pro and Gmax Ultra, are water-resistant models with IPX4 level ratings, so they can readily bear rain and snow conditions.


Riding Comfort and Handling

Now, let us get detailed insights into the riding comfort and handling capabilities of the two competing variants of e-scooters. 

The Hiboy Max Pro has a double suspension system at the front and rear ends and a fat 11-inch pneumatic tire that boasts a comfortable riding experience. Of course, it prevents the jerks and bumps you may experience on different terrains, thereby maintaining the ride quality and stability and giving better shock absorption to avoid fatigue traveling to the rider. 

On the contrary, Gmax Ultra has 10-inch pneumatic tires that offer lesser stability on bumpy grounds, making the ride less comfortable. Plus, the suspension is missing here, which makes the air-filled wheels do all the work. You must do extra maintenance on them as they tend to get punctured more often. 

In the Hiboy Max Pro, you get a front and rear drum brake and an electronic brake at the back end to provide a better grip on the road in case of sudden braking. This feature is missing in Gmax Ultra.

Hiboy also has three riding modes that are differentiated by different lights to give better guidance to the user. Herein, Red stands for Sports mode, Yellow for Normal mode, and Blue for Beginner mode. No such distinction through lights was seen in Gmax Ultra.  And Max pro still offer a variety of seating options to meet your comfort and style preferences.

You can also use the app to lock your vehicle too. Moreover, you can check battery levels and use other specs for a better traveling experience. Gmax Ultra does not offer an app integration like Hiboy to give detailed insights about the e-scooter.

Using the Hiboy Max Pro dashboard lets you locate settings for cruise control and speed customization and get an edge over your vehicle. Plus, you can control the riding mode and switch between beginner, regular, and sports modes anytime, as per your preference. However, these capabilities were not seen in Gmax Ultra.

In Hiboy Max Pro, the LED lights are present as a headlight, tail light, and a side deck light and are strong enough not to let you miss a single thing on the road, even in low lights. You can operate them via a button given on the LED panel. While in Gmax Ultra, the LED headlight comes with a reflector, and you can monitor distance traveled and speed along with a battery available through an LED display. However, the lights are not strong enough to make the night ride comfortable.

These features help enhance your user experience as they make your ride convenient and comfortable. But Hiboy Max Pro offers more features than Gmax Ultra, so a heads up.
