INMOTION S1F, When Inmotion Meets Electric Scooters
INMOTION is not at its first attempt, the world leader of the e-wheel has already tried the adventure of the electric scooter with the Inmotion L8/L8F.
The L8F did not convince at all and had a lot of drawbacks but Inmotion has not yet admitted defeat…and Inmotion should not…The S1F is a real success and should erase the bad souvenirs of the L8.
The Inmotion S1F is clearly of a completely different calibre than the L8F and this at all levels : design, technical specifications, manufacturing quality, suspensions, braking, connectivity, water resistance…
The Inmotion S1F has been designed for intensive use : the e-scooter is equipped with a huge 15S5P battery of 675Wh, enough to cover distances up to 80 km on a single charge, a performance that does not exist elsewhere. There is not a single competitor that sells such a well-built machine with such a range at such a low price !
Inmotion has done a great job in terms of charging speed : the S1F charges in 7 hours with a single charger but can be charged in only 3.5 hours with two chargers plugged to its two charging ports (yes…the S1F has TWO charging ports 🙂 ) – 3h30 for charging a 675Wh battery in this segment is an excellent performance. Bravo Inmotion 🙂
Braking, suspensions, tires, frame…
Excellent cushioning/shock absorption
The INMOTION s1f is equipped with a tire very similar to the excellent Ninebot G30 Max, namely a 10″ inflatable tire with anti-puncture protection.
These large 10″ wheels, coupled with the front and rear suspension (springs) of the S1F make it, we are convinced, one of the most comfortable electric scooters in its segment.
The braking of the S1F is coupled (EBS – Dual Braking System): The user brakes both front and rear with a single brake lever (located on the left handlebar grip).
The EBS system has two advantages:
Very easy to use (only one brake lever)
Safe because it automatically balances the braking
This EBS braking system operates with the double action of the front drum and the rear magnetic brake (electric brake).
Quality frame, water resistance
The reinforced aluminum frame of the Inmotion S1F is made to last! The feeling of quality of the materials of the scooter is moreover rather easily felt to the touch.
And that’s not all. The machine is globally water resistant with a waterproof index higher than IP55 on all the components constituting the machine.
Water resistance is a key factor to consider when choosing an electric scooter.
The Inmotion s1f is an innovative e-scooter
Automatic turn signals
The manufacturer Inmotion has capitalized on its knowledge of e-wheels to invent a system of automatic turn signals : The turn signals of the s1f (below the plate on both sides) are triggered automatically depending on the inclination … very clever.
A mobile application is available for the s1f, among its most important features :
- Adjustment of light effects
- Error reporting
- Navigation history
- Engine locking
- Setting of the maximum speed
- Navigation data display
The s1f’s navigation data display is simple, modern and very easy to view thanks to the large diagonal screen that equips the escooter.
