Foldable frame - Covers Most of Adult Height and Weight range
The first look of the Kugoo S1pro is very amusing. The beautiful black aluminum body with a robust design and folding frame with a folding handlebar is everything you desire in your electric scooter. Even though the folding can be a little tricky, once you get a hold on to that, it seems easier to park and carry wherever you need. The scooter comes with a black duffle bag when you want to carry it on your shoulder.
Also, the unfolding process is the easiest and quite fun. The easy lock on the back is the reason. Same with the spring controlled handlebars. The height can be adjusted with the height of the rider. Riders with a height of 4’11” to 6’10” can easily take control over the scooter and Kugoo S1 can support as high as 260lb weight, which makes it a preferable adult scooter.
LCD screen - Experience Speed and Control
Once you get the folding and unfolding business done, all is there is to ride. Kugoo S1 delivers one of the smoothest rides ever. The LCD screen presents all the information you may need. Battery percentage, speed reading, mileage, and distance traveled are presented properly. The buttons below the LCD screen control the power on and off, horn, light, and speed options. The horn is not very remarkable but good enough to get attention from the pedestrians. The LED lights will guide you if the road is too dark. The rear light turns up when you press on the acceleration. Yes, the right handlebar is near the thumb lever that controls the acceleration and the left has the control over the brake. Easy to control and easier to navigate the ride whenever you are on it.
Motor and Tires
The 350W motor is enough to provide you the speed you need for an electric scooter and it is needless to say that the scooter requires careful handling. Even though the speed can go up to 30 kilometers per hour, Kugoo recommends the 1st mood of speed. The Kugoo S1 pro takes around 4 hours to be fully charged and can go 30-40 kilometers in one charge. The non-slip solid 8 inches tire supports the speed and action cautiously. The front bar is connected with the wires and the lever that holds the scooter still. Easy turns are suspension-free and relaxing with Kugoo S1.
Folding Kugoo S1 - The Tricky part
There’s a pamphlet in the package with images describing the process. Even though it’s described properly still the process be tricky to have one hand on. The process is to support the scooter on something sable. Then using the handlebar push the scooter forward while your feet press down the lever. Yes, a higher force is needed to get the work done. Once the lever is up and the scooter is loose, you can still support it with the back stand. When you ready take the front bar all the way to the rear tire and the lock will secure the folded scooter. Leave it like that or put it in your duffle bag and be on with your day.
The Kugoo S1 Pro comes with a full warranty on most parts for 12 months. For the battery and charger, it’s 6 months. The charger port near the folding lever is easy to find and has a plastic cover. The scooter comes with the manual and the folding pamphlet to help you ease into the experience of an electric scooter. Get yours and ride along.
