Full battery barely lasts 8km?

    Bought a 2 month old gtx, dude said it had no hardware problem whatsoever, i might have gotten scammed but im not worried since im protected by paypal buyer protection.

    Basically its got an AT setup and i do ride it up hills sometimes but an equal amount down hill where im holding the break the entire way down. Most of the time its flat.
    Ive usually got it in fast mode cause 12-14mph is my personal sweet spot and yeah, im getting lie 8km out of it.

    Also when im going up a steep hill and i hold down the gas, battery goes from whatever it was at to 0 zero making the controller buzz, then when i get to the top and release its in eco mode and the battery slowly recharges to like 10 or so percent where it was before going up.

    I have the GT and when in eco mode with AT I only get 9 miles. With the 97mm in eco I am getting 14mile. Not saying yours is normal but I do know evolve uses crappy batteries and the voltage sag is really bad.

    Sounds like the stock battery is shot. I recently bought a used one as well. My battery luckily wasn’t too bad but I’m currently building a new 10s4p battery out of 18650 cells. Considering making and selling more if there’s a need out there.

    You should check the battery cycle first before buying it...

    It would be nice / something to ask for when buying used. Photos of the battery diagnostics screen.

    PSI should around 36, a shock pump helps for precise pumps without losing air when you remove the pump.
    Check the belt tension it should be as loose as possible without the belt slipping when you break or accelerate.
    When I switch to my AT setup the tubes that Evolve sent me had no air in them and I was able to go 10 miles with 4 flats.

    You should get 18-22 miles with the stock battery after everything is set up correctly. Even having one tire with low psi will screw your range. The tubes Evolve use have a weak point at the stem so they break easily(7 inch nova tubes with tire liner is what I use)
