The Hiboy KS4 Pro is strong, big, powerful and with a 10″ honeycomb tires, and for the price of $599.99 is one of the best deals among high-end commuting electric scooters.

In its class are Ninebot G30 Max, Gotrax XR Ultra, Turboant M10, Xiaomi Mi365, Unagi One etc. So, let’s see why is expected the KS4 Pro to be one of the best sellers this year.

Hiboy KS4 Pro Design
The Hiboy KS4 Pro electric scooter can withstand 220 lbs of weight and its standing deck is wide enough to comfortably place both feet on it. Its chassis is incredibly durable, made of aluminum alloy, which makes it extremely light and weighs only 38.5 lbs. The steering rod is also super strong, and the folding mechanism is very durable and guarantees long-term use. The one-latch folding mechanism allows you to fold or unfold the Hiboy KS4 Pro in just a few seconds.
Apart from the indisputable robustness and strength, I am also pleased with, in my immodest opinion, the most attractive look for this type of vehicle.
The cables are mostly hidden inside the chassis, but still not completely because the red cables are visible at the top and bottom of the steering rod. However, this is not a bad thing either, because red cables with red details on the front and rear wheel raise the overall visual impression.
Tires and Brakes
The large 10 ″ honeycomb tires are intended for urban riding. The ride is quiet and comfortable primarily because of the tires, and even greater comfort is contributed by dual rear shock absorbers.
In the front wheel there is a strong 500 W motor and electronic brake, while in the rear wheel there is a mechanical brake disc. The rear disc brakes very well, but it can squeak, so it gets on my nerves. However, with a little care when dosing, you will find a compromise between silence and braking power.
Motor, Battery and Speed
The 500 W motor is more than enough to powerfully pull a rider with a maximum weight of 220 lbs. Of course, the lighter the driver, the more agile the engine will be and it will reach maximum speed well before than in the case when the rider weighs close to the upper limit. I have about 220 lbs and I drove this electric scooter without any problems. Also, the speed depends on the slope of the terrain. Maximum speed of the KS4 Pro is 19 mph, but on smaller hills it drops to 15 mph, on more serious ones the maximum speed drops to about 10 mph.
The Hiboy KS4 Pro features high capacity 42V 11,6 Ah li-ion battery pack able to deliver up to 25 miles of continuous ride or approximately 1,5 hours of ride before recharging. Luckily, this model is equipped with fast charger enabling full recharge in just 5 hours.
LCD Display and App
The LCD display is large and clear, making it easy to read the most important data while riding the KS4 Pro. The display shows all important parameters such as speed, battery status, speed mode, cruise control, App connection etc.
The Hiboy KS4 Pro can be easily connected to a smartphone via the App. Within the App you can manage the status of the scooter (lock/unlock), riding statistics, battery power, cruise control, system self-checking, choose riding modes etc. Practically, everything that matters is available through the App.
If you are looking for an affordable electric scooter for urban environment and commuting then the Hiboy KS4 Pro is the right choice for you. For only $599.99 you get a durable electric scooter that has enough autonomy to go and get back from work. However, if you are looking for an electric scooter that can be used for off-road entertainment in addition to the urban environment, then it is better to choose another model such as Hiboy Titan or Titan Pro, YUME D4 +, Kaabo Mantis Pro SE and Varla Pegasus.
