If you’re looking for an affordable electric scooter that’s the best electric scooter for climbing hills in a lower price range, the Macwheel Electric Scooter is providing the right amount of power and features. It has a dual-disc braking system, with anti-lock. And a 350W hub motor for good torque and speed.

Why We Like It – Macwheel Electric Scooter

If you’re on the fence about electric scooters, the Macwheel Electric Scooter provides enough power and fun, while also bringing with some much needed safety features and range.

Pros
  • Nearly 19 miles on a single charge
  • Air-free 8.5-inch non-pneumatic tires
  • Solid starter choice
Cons
  • Only reaches max speed of 15.6mph in ideal conditions
  • Cannot be driven in rain

Performance

While technically speaking, the Macwheel Electric Scooter is faster than the Glion Dolly Foldable Lightweight Adult Electric Scooter, going 15.6mph, the Glion is more consistent. Only in ideal conditions does the Macwheel Electric Scooter managing to hit those top speeds. Even the Xiaomi M365 performs slightly better than both.

Safety

The 8.5-inch airless tires have built-in shock suspension, anti-puncture properties, and are explosion-proof, providing an overall safer ride. This is in addition to a solid dual-disc braking system and front and rear lights, though they’re somewhat small and dim.

Battery Life

While we wouldn’t consider 18.6 miles a “high capacity long range battery” but it does manage to provide several more miles than average. Even more important: it cranks out those miles on just 4 hours of charging. It’s still a far cry from the NanRobot D5+’s 50-mile range, but it’s still fantastic in its own right.

Durability

For the sake of maintenance, the Macwheel MX1 Electric Scooter dropped air-filled tires for air-free tires. Those significantly reduce maintenance. The overall frame is aluminum, being light and durable, but it cannot—under any circumstances—go out in the rain, because it will damage the e scooter.

Value

Considering something like a high-quality Segway Ninebot goes for nearly $300 and is outperformed by the Macwheel Electric Scooter, makes the Macweheel that much more affordable and worth looking at. There aren’t, by any means, the best electric scooters, but they certainly serve their purpose as starter electric scooters. If power is what you’re after, then the NanRobot D4+ is where it’s at.

Macwheel Electric Scooter Wrap Up

The Macwheel Electric Scooter is ideal fun in the sun on a budget. That’s where it’s most comfortable, conditions that allow it to reach its max speed of 15.6mph more consistently. More importantly, its battery life of nearly 19 miles feels a lot better than your run-of-the-mill scooters; it’s just enough, and then some.
