 October 4, 2020

By  Rando

The electric scooter market has become increasingly more competitive over the past couple of years. This is good news for us because it means we can get a wider range of e-scooters for a cheaper price. If there was only a couple of electric scooter manufacturers then obviously the prices would be higher and you would have less variety. A great example is the Smcircle S1, which is stylish, innovative and compact electric scooter with seat.

The Smcircle S1 has been designed very differently than your standard electric scooter. If you already own an e-scooter and would like to buy another one that is totally unique and different then the Smacircle S1is the perfect choice. In this blog post I will give you a quick review of the Smacircle S1 and why it is such an amazing and unique e-scooter.

Smacircle S1 - Compact Electric Scooter with Seat

The smacircle S1 is as compact as you can get. The innovative folding mechanism of the S1 e-scooter allows you to fit it in the S1 special bag or backpack. In addition the light carbon fiber frame and innovative seating position, makes this scooter stand out. The Smacircle S1 has certainly set a new trend in the world of electric scooters.

The top speed of 20 km/h is certainly not very high but in an urban city environment there is no need for a super fast scooter. The S1 has not been designed for max speed in mind but rather compactness and portability.

Also the range of 12.5 miles or 20 km should be more than enough for your daily commutes to work. In addition the Samsung lithium rechargeable battery recharges in just 3.5 hours and the battery is detachable. 

The scooter folds down to a very compact 29 cm x 53 cm x 20 cm, which is small enough to fit in the specially designed Smacircle S1 bag, which unfortunately you need to buy separately. The weight of the S1 e-scooter is just 11.2 kg and if without the battery the scooter only weighs 8.6 kg-s. 

The S1 has a 100 kg max weight limit, like with many other popular e-scooters, such as the M365. It is not designed for heavier riders and it only has a IPX4 water resistance rating. This means the scooter has not been designed to be driven through more than 2 cm of water. Riding in the rain should be avoided, especially because the warranty is void if the been ridden in the rain or has any water ingress.

The Smacircle S1 comes with the special App that monitors your riding stats. Most scooters these days come with an App so it is already a basic requirement. The App allows you to keep track of basic things, such as speed, single trip distance, battery life and also change between Normal and Sport mode.

It has an electric throttle and braking system that are easy to operate. The folding mechanism is easy to operate and the seating position has been ergonomically designed.
