So many country roads have changed in the last two or three years. More and more, especially in larger cities, where constipation is often a problem, they turn to electrical replacements or services that offer cheap and fast transportation, even at the expense of moderate physical activity. From many comments, we know that among our readers there are many fans of electric scooters that offer the perfect balance between transport speed, mobility, and price.

Just look at the success of the Scooters from Xiaomi and you will find that the market for this type of vehicle is really big and full of possibilities. It is therefore not surprising that Kugoo, which brings the Kugoo S1 electric scooter to the market, is also coming up with its solution. This is an alternative to the Xiaomi scooter mentioned above and believes us it is more than a successful alternative.
Although we often associate scooters with toys for our kids, the opposite is true for their electric versions. As the poet would say, the news from the big manufacturers’ workshop is’ going like hell ‘. Evidence is also Kugoo S1 , which thanks to the 350 W engine can develop speeds up to 35 km / h . But it depends on who drives it. I, 90 kg guy was able to reach the speed of 30 km / h , much lighter girlfriend again the full maximum of 35 km / h . Everything, of course, on a flat surface. Down the hill it goes even faster.
The Scooter Kugoo S1 offers a load capacity of up to 120 kg, which is more than the Xiaomi solution. At the same time, the more powerful engine ensures more stable performance even on a gentle climb, which has made me less comfortable with the Xiaomi scooter. The device offers 3 power modes , allowing you to respond more precisely to different situations. If you have a long and especially smooth straight ahead, switch the scooter to maximum power. However, if you are traveling on a bumpy surface or need to push through groups of people, a lower-power mode that responds more slowly to speed changes will help.
Kugoo S1: Can be folded and easy to carryThe advantage of electric scooters is their return . Whether you take it to work or want to pack it in the trunk of your car, the Kugoo S1 is no problem. The scooter has a small hook mechanism at the bottom of the structure that holds the base and handlebars at approximately 90 degrees. There is also a 3-step handlebar height adjustment that can also be folded . They aren’t as strong as Xiaomi, but you can rely on them for the ride, and that’s it. The whole machine weighs 11 kilograms , which is not quite the least, but it is also nothing that could not be managed. Most of the weight is due to the battery and metal construction, which is really robust (except for the handlebars). Let me also point out that a scooter like this is not intended for too tall people. I have 184 cm and when driving, I felt that approximately this height is the ceiling at which the ride can still be managed. Being taller, so I don’t enjoy driving at all.
Kugoo S1: Standard equipmentThe scooter rests on 8.5-inch tubeless tires, which has both pros and cons. On the one hand, you will not get a puncture , but on the other hand there will be reduced driving comfort. It is nothing that cannot be resisted, but it is noticeable. Certainly, however, we would avoid cubes or other uneven surfaces, because the scooter does not in any way prove it. Kugoo S1 offers 2 types of brakes . Directly on the handlebars is an electronic brake , which scooters scooter electric motor , which also charges the battery . However, such braking is not very effective, so you should only use it as you slow down. If you need to “stamp” on the brake, you will actually have to stamp. There is a mudguard on the rear wheel that also acts as a brake .
Kugoo S1: No application, but with a computerYou need to get used to the Kugoo S1 scooter. However, I mean it. The scooter accelerates really fast. Reaching the top speed, on the other hand, takes a while, but this was no problem in the test, as at 30 km / h you are already beginning to doubt whether you can stay on it. Interestingly, there is also an ” on-board computer ” that cannot be removed and does not offer a link to the application. For the first time, I’m glad that a product doesn’t have a mobile app. Everything you need is available right away. The display shows the current speed, distance traveled power mode setting, battery status, and so on. All settings will be controlled by the five buttons located at the bottom of the display. On the front, you will find a headlight consisting of 24 LEDs .
Kugoo S1: A finish that will pleaseDuring the testing, I managed to cover 25 kilometers on a single battery charge, but I must add that at the lowest engine power. If I switched the scooter to the middle setting, the range dropped to about 20 kilometers, but the ride was much more pleasant and especially faster. At maximum power, expect a range of approximately 15 kilometers. Naturally, after the battery is depleted, the scooter needs to be recharged , which takes about 5 to 6 hours . This is the perfect time to get used to working day or night charging. The charging port is covered with a rubber grip to protect the device from water or dust. The entire scooter is IP54 certified , which makes it no problem for summer showers. However, immersion in water or prolonged exposure to rain is not recommended.
