Product Overview

Electric scooters are a game-changer for urban commuting and the Macwheel MX1 has proven to be a reliable companion for those looking to zip through city streets with ease. Designed primarily for the urban adventurer, this e-scooter caters well to anyone seeking a quick, eco-friendly, and cost-effective method of transportation. Professionals who want to bypass congested traffic will appreciate the MX1's capabilities, but thrill-seekers might find its modest top speed less exhilarating.

Design and Build Quality:

Rolling out the Macwheel MX1, its robust build quality immediately grabs attention. Constructed with a sturdy frame, the scooter feels durable without compromising on portability. An elegant matte finish gives it a touch of class while riding through town. Assembly was straightforward; I managed to set it up with minimal fuss – a couple of screws and I was ready to hit the pavement.

Overall Performance:

The MX1 shines in urban settings. It's nimble enough for quick errands and stable during rush hour rides. With a satisfying top speed of 25 kph, it cuts commute time significantly. While not built for racing, acceleration is smooth and sufficient to keep things exciting. Braking is responsive, thanks to the disc and ABS system—essential for those unexpected moments in traffic. On flatter grounds, achieving the maximum range of 30 km was no issue, although hill climbs did put a dent in that distance.

The Motors & Battery:

Its 350w motor tackles city landscapes confidently but struggles slightly on inclines beyond the 20% mark. For most cityscapes though, this power is adequate. The battery lives up to its promise; consistently hitting close to 30 km on a single charge felt liberating, not having to worry about daily recharges for my short commutes.

The Wheels & Braking:

Solid tires mean goodbye punctures—a huge plus for me as I've had my share of flats with other scooters. However, they do transmit more road vibrations compared to air-filled options. Safety isn't compromised though; the braking system brings me to a halt swiftly when needed.

Overall Handling:

Riding the MX1 across various terrains was mostly pleasant. On smoother surfaces, it's like gliding on air. Uneven paths are noticeable but bearable due to its spring suspension system. Turning felt intuitive at slower speeds but required more caution when pushing closer to its top speed.

Maintenance and Repair:

So far, upkeep has been minimal. It's reassuring that parts seem readily available should I need them down the line – something that's not always guaranteed with e-scooters.

Additional Features:

Night rides were secure thanks to integrated lights that are surprisingly bright for their size. The absence of an advanced electronic dashboard didn't bother me much; simplicity has its charm and contributes to less distraction while navigating through traffic.


Given my experiences, I rate the Macwheel MX1 a solid 8/10. This score reflects its strong performance in an urban setting balanced against its less thrilling speed and solid tires that can make bumpy roads feel rougher than they are.

Macwheel MX1 Electric Scooter review
  • - 4.4
After spending time with the MX1 I can confidently state that you get what you pay for and more. I never felt any discomfort riding the vehicle and confidently state that it offers all the functionalities that are expected in every scooter. Grocery shopping and errands are simple with lots of space to squeeze in on-road and off-road adventures without the worries of losing a few teeth. It offers the functionalities, features, and aesthetics of premium-level scooters at an affordable price range. You can even use parts from the Xiaomi M365 on the Macwheel MX1 which is great if the local shops are running low on dedicated Macwheel parts.
