Fiido Q1S is neither a bike, nor a scooter, and somehow manages to be both. With a range of 20 miles it is great for daily commute or a quick run to the market. There is a convenient center storage compartment that can carry sports equipment, books, or whatever you need to take with you, as well as a storage basket in the front.
With 250W motor, the top speed is only 15 mph, which might seem low compared to some other scooters, but it is in fact an adequate speed for bike lanes, shared use paths and local streets. Fiido can climb hills though, as geared motors are generally more efficient.
Fiido Q1S is very comfortable to ride. It is not too torquey, so it won’t launch you forward when you twist the throttle. Twist throttle does not take up the whole length of the handlebar grip, allowing you to adjust your grip and relax your hand. Front and rear mechanical disc brakes will make you stop almost on a dime.
This seated scooter is very comfortable to ride. Large 12” tires do their part in cushioning bumps on the road, and there is even dual suspension system which is very rarely seen on mini bikes. In addition to all this, the seat is nicely padded and very soft.
Overall build quality is very good, but there are few details that could be better. The display is nothing to brag about, as it only shows battery charge, and you can barely even see that. It comes with one headlight mounted over the front wheel, and no rear lights. The fenders are very flimsy and feel so cheap, this would probably be the first thing I would change on this scooter.
Bottom line: Fiido Q1S is fun, laid-back scooter, fitting for nearly anyone, from college students to seniors.
