The front wheel of the M Megawheels S1 electric scooter measures 6 inches while the rear wheel measures 5.5 inches. The wheels are made of solid rubber, making them puncture-proof. However, the solid nature of the wheels may result in more noticeable vibrations on the handlebar when traveling on bumpy roads. To improve the smoothness of the ride, the scooter has shock absorbers built into the front wheel.


Dual braking system

The M Megawheels S1 features two braking systems: a handlebar-activated electric motor brake and a foot-operated rear wheel friction brake.


The M Megawheels S1 is equipped with an LED light at the back. However, it does not have a front light, so if you plan to use it during nighttime hours, you will need to purchase an additional light source.

Reviews of the M Megawheels S1

I believe the M Megawheels S1 electric scooter is an excellent value for its price and I would highly recommend it for those seeking an eco-friendly and cost-effective alternative to commuting during busy rush hours.
I am a 60 kg woman who uses the scooter for my daily 4 km round trip to work and after a month of usage, it has met my expectations overall. The scooter was initially intended as a gift for my 10-year-old daughter but is now utilized by the whole family. It functions well with my daughter’s weight, accelerates and brakes effectively, but it is lacking a front light, which is not included but is highly recommended.
However, there is a steep portion of my route where the scooter struggles to climb, and I have to assist with my feet for the final meters. Additionally, the small wheels can make it difficult to tackle high curbs and the solid rubber does not absorb road vibrations as well, leading to a bit of rattling.
I am 177 cm tall and weigh 79 kg. When the scooter only has 2 battery bars left, it can hardly keep up with me.

Hi, I’m Jason Tie

I have been passionate about electric scooters and bicycles since they came on the market, but I really took to skateboarding when I was young.

I started with the skateboard at 7 years old when my dad taught me how to ride. Since then, I have mostly owned freestyle skates and longboards- even if they were difficult for some people in our town.
