Quality and Design of Gotrax XR electric scooter :
You don’t have to think that because the MEGAWHEELS s10 features a slim and good looking design it is also weak constructed. The frame is made from aerospace-grade aluminum which makes the electric scooter sturdy while also being incredibly lightweight (26.7 lbs). Its lightweight comes particularly in handy whenever you need to lift and carry your MEGAWHEELS S10. Not only it features a foldable design that makes it so compact that you can store it in any car trunk or under the train seat, but being so lightweight makes all the operations easy and comfortable. You can easily lift the MEGAWHEELS S10 if, say, you have to climb some stairs along your path.
The handlebar is a classic straight one, consistent with the slim and elegant design. You have three main controllers on your MEGAWHEELS S10 handlebar: the small but clear display riding data, the press-brake button on the left, and the push-throttle on the right. You can operate any control without losing your grip on the handlebars, which is safe and comfortable.
The MEGAWHEELS S10 Electric Scooter features a double brake system: an electric brake on the front wheel that the rider can operate pushing the brake-button on the handlebar, plus a classic rear foot brake on the rear wheel.
The MEGAWHEELS S10 feature 8’’ solid tires. Solid tires have some advantages but one main disadvantage. The advantages are that they require no maintenance and they are not subject to puncture. The main disadvantage is that they provide quite a rigid ride. This can be compensated by suspension and the MEGAWHEELS S10 does feature front and rear suspensions to make the ride comfortable and smooth.
Other than being comfortably portable, this electric scooter also features a convenient retractable kickstand. Actually, almost any model and brand of electric scooter today features a kickstand. It is almost essential. Imagine having to find a wall to lean your e-scooter on every time you need to leave it for a few minutes. Not to mention the charging operations. With a kickstand you can leave your electric scooter standing, preventing damage and scratches.
In line with the elegant and slim design, the deck is also long and slim. It also features an anti-slip surface that is always appreciated.
The MEGAWHEELS S10 comes pretty much assembled. Tires are already mounted and they don’t require any maintenance or check before riding your electric scooter. The fact that it’s so lightweight makes it easier to actually pull it out of the box and put it together. You may want to fully charge it before taking it out for your first ride.
Performance for Gotrax XR electric scooter:
The 250-watt brushless hub motor can push the MEGAWHEELS S10 up to 15.5 mph. This can be defined as an average speed. It’s not super fast, but enough for every day commuting to be safe and effective (if you’ll be late to work, you will not be able to blame your electric scooter!). There are faster electric scooters on the market, but we should keep in mind the MEGAWHEELS S10’s price here. For such an affordable electric scooter, an average speed of 15.5 mph is exactly what you should expect.
The riding feels smooth and comfortable. This is made possible thanks to the suspensions that compensate for the rigidity of the solid tires. On the other hand, the MEGAWHEELS S10 has some difficulties riding on rough terrains and it struggles a little uphill. Again, considering its price, this is exactly what we expected from such an affordable electric scooter.
Battery life and charging time
A 7500 mAh battery is mounted inside the MEGAWHEELS S10 (it is actually a row of batteries that can provide for a total 7500 mAh power). Such a battery can provide a mileage of 15 miles. Considering that mileage depends on many factors, and that – unless you are extremely light and always light on flat and smooth terrains – the actual mile-range is even shorter, 15 miles mileage is a bit short. Still, if you are on a low budget, the MEGAWHEELS S10 is a valuable choice for you.
Why we like about Gotrax XR electric scooter:
- This is one of the best-quality electric scooters that come at the lowest price on the market.
- That is to the foldable frame and its lightweight, the MEGAWHEELS S10 can be stored and carried easily and with little effort. If you commute to the train station, or there are stairs in your path to school or work, you’ll have no difficulties carrying your electric scooter with you even when you’re not riding it.
- Good performance for a small price. Considering its price, this electric scooter can provide good performance in terms of speed and comfort. Its safety features – braking system, suspension, headlight, and sturdiness – are excellent.
What we didn't like about Gotrax XR electric scooter:
- A nominal mileage of 15 miles is a bit short.
- It struggles on rough terrains and uphill. The moderate power of the motor is suitable for propelling the electric scooter on flat and smooth terrains, but it struggles on rough terrains and uphill. On the other hand, in case your e-scooter struggles too much, you can fold it and carry it with no efforts.
The MEGAWHEELS S10 features great characteristics for its affordable price. We would recommend this electric scooter for anyone on a low budget. With the MEGAWHEELS S10, you’ll get a cheap but safe and durable electric scooter. It won’t bring you on great adventures, but it will carry you to work, school, or around the neighborhood at a decent speed and without exposing you to any risk.
