This S1 model has 3 different adjustable handlebar height positions, making it more comfortable for both children and even lightweight adults to use because it allows easy adjustment for people of different heights. The rubber handlebar is comfortable and lessens the vibration in your hands when you are riding.
The scooter has a kickstand just like other similar scooters, so you can easily park it on the floor by pushing the kickstand down with your foot and leaning it over. Some people think it is just a regular kick-scooter when they first see it.
The MegaWheels S1 is made from high-grade aluminium and plastic. The main body is all aluminium, with plastic acceleration/brake pedals, and a few other cosmetic parts, and has plastic/rubber handlebars. Using such light materials, and having a smaller battery means it weighs just around 8 kg (~18 lbs). This makes it one of the best lightweight electric scooters you can buy.
And, if your battery runs out of juice, you can easily use the S1 as a regular kick-scooter without any problems.
Also, the 6 inch front and 5.5-inch rear tires are made from solid rubber. The ride is smooth enough and the concealed front shock absorber does help a little in reducing bumps from the solid rubber tires. It feels surprisingly soft when you are riding on a smooth surface. The tires are thick enough to help prevent slipping on sharper turns.
The turning principle of the electric-scooter is the same as that for a sliding plate or skateboard or surfboard. Be observant and make sure that turning is safe before you actually start turning. Using the handlebars, steer the e scooter where you want to go.
Economically priced, it’s suitable for children aged 10+, and for lightweight adults too.
In general, the MegaWheels electric scooter is a really nice ride for children to use around the neighbourhood, or for adults in the city for shorter trips. This is partly thanks to a lower top speed, which is safer for children, or for city trips with many people around, where you may not be able to travel faster anyway.
The MegaWheels S1 is really easy to use. The power button is located on the edge of the e-scooter platform.
First, just long press the power button for 3 to 5 seconds to switch the power on. Then carefully step onto the platform with one foot, and kick backward on the ground with the other foot (kick-start).
Push forward for a couple of meters, then press the accelerator paddle on the right hand handlebar to give the scooter a constant power flow to build up speed as you lift your trailing foot from the ground onto the rear of the platform behind (like on a sliding plate or skateboard or surfboard) for better comfort.
The S1 electric scooter has two types of brakes; an electric brake paddle on the handlebar, and a manual foot brake at the rear.
The scooter has a rear brake with a taillight on it. It functions as a splash guard, and also as a signal to show people or vehicles behind you that there is a vehicle in front of them. The taillight carries a sensor, and as long as the scooter is moving forward, the tail light will blink. When it is used as a brake it becomes a very bright brake light.
The folding mechanism of MegaWheels S1 is nice and neat. Simply pull the lock upwards and fold the scooter in just a few seconds. The scooter folds up really tight and compact, and doesn’t clatter while you carry it.
The Megawheels S1 electric scooter has a powerful 250W motor that can drive the scooter to a maximum speed of about 23 km/h. It is equipped with a 5000mAh Lithium-ion battery, which provides the scooter with a range of 8-12 kilometers, depending on rider weight and terrain.
Absolute minimum assembly is required. All you have to do is screw on the handles (make sure you screw anti-clockwise when you attach them). And you won't find any loose parts that might wobble when you ride it, adding to the overall ride quality.
Note: There is no front LED light on the scooter. If you want to ride it at dusk or nighttime, it will be safer for you to buy a small LED light that you can attach securely to one to the handlebars.
