The Segway Ninebot MAX features a 36V 551Wh Lithium battery, and it is designed to charge for around 6 hours. That is faster than most of the e-scooters with similar battery capacity. The battery also features a Smart Battery Management System that adds protection and durability to the battery.
On the other hand, the Mearth RS provides a larger capacity with a 36V 561.16Wh Lithium battery. It charges for around 8-9 hours, but it includes an efficient and concentrated battery system. The battery also includes smart protection, such as short circuit protection, overcurrent protection, and temperature anomaly protection, among many others.
Both batteries offer an efficient and safe battery system, but the Mearth RS wins in terms of capacity and battery protection.
When it comes to motor power, the Mearth RS has an edge over the Ninebot MAX. The Mearth RS features a 500W nominal motor output, while the Ninebot MAX starts at 350W.
For the Mearth RS, this power translates to better ride quality when driving through rough environments and steep inclines. Both electric scooters can power through uneven roads, but the Mearth RS can take on steeper slopes of up to 25% and rougher terrain with a breeze.
Both electric scooters offer a maximum range of 65 km on a single charge. Riders should keep in mind that many factors can affect the real-world range of an e-scooter. The Mearth RS may have a slightly lower range in reality due to its powerful motor. On the other hand, the Segway Ninebot may also travel less range due to the smaller battery capacity. Overall, ride both e-scooters at a decent speed to get the most out of your battery.
Thanks to its powerful motor and large battery capacity, the Mearth RS can ride up to 40 kph for those who need fast transport. Meanwhile, the Segway Ninebot offers a maximum speed of 29.9 kph. However, the two electric scooters are set at a default speed of 25 kph as required by e-scooter law.
Both electric scooters offer brakes that increase safety when riding. The Segway Ninebot features a front drum brake and a regenerative electric rear brake that makes the e-scooter stable and easy to maneuver.
However, the Mearth RS offers better safety features as it includes a front and back disc brake, rear foot brake, anti-lock electric brake, and a double handgrip brake. Disc brakes are the safest kind of electric scooter brake, and having multiple brakes available adds more safety and efficiency when braking.
The Mearth RS Series and the Segway Ninebot KickScooter showcase a minimalist cockpit design that focuses on function rather than style. Both feature a small HD screen display that shows all the information you need to see at a glance, including battery level, speed mode. And current speed.
When it comes to the handlebars and controls, the Mearth RS Series offers a more intuitive riding experience due to its non-slip arc-shaped grips, double handgrip brakes, press type acceleration, and easy-to-reach bell.
The Segway Ninebot KickScooter also shows a similar design and control. However, the extra minor details in the Mearth RS’ design gives the dashboard and controls a more intuitive and comfortable riding experience.
The Mearth RS and Segway Ninebot MAX may seem similar at first glance, but the subtle nuances in their design make them distinguishable. Aside from the colour accents, the Mearth RS Series is slightly larger than the Ninebot MAX. Moreover, the deck is slightly wider with 18.3 cm of width.
Both electric scooters offer a minimalist look, but the Mearth RS Series gives a more modern and slightly off-road look to a classic e-scooter design.
The Segway Ninebot KickScooter MAX is made from tough aluminium alloy, while the Mearth RS is built from a robust magnesium alloy. Both e-scooters offer a tough exterior and durable material, but the Mearth RS offers a better overall build quality as it can travel on rougher roads. Moreover, magnesium alloy is one of the strongest and lightest metals, allowing the Mearth RS to be both durable and portable.
When it comes to warranty, Mearth offers one of the longest warranties among e-scooter brands. They offer a two-year warranty on the frame of the Mearth RS and a one-year warranty on the main body, motor, battery, and controller of the e-scooter.
Meanwhile, Segway offers a limited warranty period. These include:
- One year for the vehicle’s body (e.g. motor, controller, handlebar, stem, etc.)
- 180 days for other components (e.g. control cable, battery, built-in charger, etc.)
- 90 days to components that are subject to wear (e.g. tyre, fender, brake wire, etc.)
- 15 days for smaller components that are subject to wear (e.g. bumper strip, dashboard cover, handlebar grips, etc.)
Segway may have a more defined warranty coverage, but Mearth offers a longer warranty period that most e-scooter brands don’t offer. With a longer warranty, riders can rest assured that they don’t have to pay for major or minor damages if the warranty covers it.
Both electric scooters offer the same maximum range under ideal conditions despite having a different motor output and battery capacity. Among the e-scooters in this segment, the Segway Ninebot MAX and the Mearth RS offer the longest possible range for commuter electric scooters.
Both e-scooters also have the same durability despite being made from different materials. Moreover, the e-scooters also share the maximum load capacity and 10-inch pneumatic tyres. These qualities make the Mearth RS and Segway Ninebot MAX a robust everyday e-scooter that can take on most kinds of terrain.
What sets the two e-scooters apart is their power and overall performance. The Mearth RS offers a larger and more efficient battery, a more powerful motor, a higher speed limit, and a steeper climb. These components enable riders to ride for long hours and through uneven roads without any problems. Although the Segway Ninebot MAX isn’t too far behind, the Mearth RS provides better specs that can be felt in its performance.
When it comes to comfort, the Mearth RS and the Segway Ninebot are almost on par. However, the Mearth RS offers better comfort and ride quality, especially when riding. The Mearth RS provides a slightly larger build, resulting in a wider deck (18.3 cm). This allows a more comfortable standing position for riders. The e-scooter’s 10-inch tyres also provide more cushioning and less rattling, making the ride more stable.
Finally, both electric scooters offer several safety features, but the Mearth RS offers more protection to both the e-scooter and rider. For one, the Mearth RS battery system features six intelligent protections to help the battery work efficiently and last longer. For the rider, the Mearth RS provides five different brakes for better control.
Both electric scooters offer well-rounded specs and features, but the power, performance, and ride quality of the Mearth RS Series stands out. The Segway Ninebot MAX offers reliability due to its brand, but the Mearth RS challenges this by providing higher specs and better features. Overall, the Mearth RS Series offers a well-balanced long-range electric scooter that’s modern and powerful.
