The Yumeway corporation has produced some of the best electric scooters you can find readily available online. However, there is always a particular segment of buyers that demand affordable cost-efficient products.
The Yumeway corporation has understood the need of the hour and developed the YUME S10 Electric Scooter, which is cheaper than the models produced by other companies.
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter is an economical electric vehicle with limited features. The suspension and braking system are not as advanced as other high-end models, but the price justifies what the company has offered. The lighting system is complete, which is unusual since many models lack safety lights.
Other than this, the manufacturer’s performance and power stats are reduced. The total battery capacity and motor strength are compromised to ensure buyers can afford them.
The design and build, however, are maintained at the same level where other high-end electric scooters come from. This article discusses all the essential features, so you should learn more about what the YUME S10 Electric Scooter offers.
Yume S10 Review: Things I love
Are the design and build quality good?
YUME S10 Electric Scooter is one of this price range’s most stylish electric vehicles. The frame is sleek and eye-catching, made of aviation-graded aluminum and ferroalloy. This ensures that the body does not get rusted and the weight is as low as possible.
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter weighs 27.5 kilograms, so that you can carry it upstairs or to your garage. Moreover, the frame is durable enough to carry a weight of 120 kilograms without denting or impairing the shape.
Its dimensions are 135 cm x 63 cm x 95 to 120 cm. The 95 to 120 cm height depicts the possible variation in height due to the height adjustment feature. The Yumeway corporation is known for developing foldable scooters and has incorporated the same technology in the YUME S10 Electric Scooter.
You can conveniently and promptly fold or unfold it in just five seconds. The dimensions after folding are 117 cm x 24 cm x 45 cm. The height gets reduced while the width is also attachable, as the handlebar is foldable. The exact diameter of the handlebar is 25.4 mm, while the length is 620 mm, which can be adjusted.
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter has an optional seat attachment integrated with springs to make it as comfortable as possible. The height adjustment and handlebar length are also more comfortable than any other product on the market.
There is an obvious mudguard at the rear end, while you would find a kickstand at the side to make parking easy. It also has an adequate lighting feature which is rare in this price range. However, the lighting and other features are discussed later under the relevant heading.
How good is the performance?
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter’s performance features are not the best you would get on the market. The company has compromised the motor strength (discussed later), reducing the speed you can travel.
The top speed you can reach is 30 miles per hour (48 kilometers per hour) which is not even on par with other electric scooters. Furthermore, the battery does not have an impressive capacity either. It provides you with a mileage of 30 miles (48 kilometers).
With this limited mileage, you can travel within the city only because longer trips are not rationally preferable. However, the maximum weight limit is 120 kilograms, so you can carry a backpack or parcels while traveling.
Another thing that you must keep in mind is that the performance stats are influenced directly by the load you put on the YUME S10 Electric Scooter. The performance stats will drop immediately if you go past the prescribed load.
Are Motors Powerful?
We disliked the integrated motor of the YUME S10 Electric Scooter the most. The overall strength of the motor is not as efficient as other scooters in the market since the manufacturer has installed a battery of 1000 watts inside the YUME S10 Electric Scooter.
Moreover, the motor is single. This is the most significant disadvantage, as dual motors handle the load and performance-related specs better.
The company has installed a sensor technology, which does not cover the deficiency since the top speed is restricted to just 48 kilometers per hour. Sole moror and limited wattage impair the ability to do work.
How Big Is The Battery?
The battery installed in the YUME S10 Electric Scooter is insufficient. The maximum distance it can cover in one complete charging cycle is only 30 miles (48 kilometers).
The battery is a lithium-ion bar placed below the deck. It has a capacity of 48 volts and an electric current flow of 21 ampere hours. The Yumeway corporation has equipped the device with certain battery safety features such as short-circuit protection, voltage locking technology, heat resistance, and auto sleep.
The charging time is a highly inefficient feature where the battery gets charged in 7 to 8 hours. It would have been acceptable if the battery life was long, but a distance range of 48 kilometers does not justify such a long charging time.
This extended charging is understandable as the company has integrated a single charging port, whereas other scooters have dual ports for quicker charging. The charger is not fast, with just 2 amperes of current flow.
How big are the tires?
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter has the same pneumatic tires as the company’s other high-end devices. These tires are tubeless so that you can use them for off-road trips. Purchasing the YUME S10 Electric Scooter will allow you to travel on muddy tracks and bumpy roads.
Furthermore, the tires are ingrained with prominent patterns to better grip wet and slippery roads. The exact width of the tires is 10 inches, so you can maintain your balance quickly.
How good is the suspension?
The stability of an electric scooter is directly dependent on the kind of suspension system it is integrated with. A proper suspension system mitigates shocks sustained on a bumpy track.
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter has a pure spring-based suspension system. It has a couple of spring suspensions fitted at the front, and these many spring suspensions are present at the rear end as well.
This suspension system works fine while landing because the shock is dissipated through the coils upon the impact. However, spring suspensions are not as efficient as hydraulic suspensions.
The hydraulic suspension can absorb the shocks sustained during the uplifting process. We can happily accept the spring suspensions at this price range because other competitors do not have a suspension system at all.
Are Brakes Good?
The brake system is an important feature, as we all know. No matter which vehicle you run (electrical or mechanical), the braking system is critical in keeping you safe.
Most of the electric scooters in the market boast a hydraulic disc brake or specific braking mechanisms that involve electric intervention. However, the YUME S10 Electric Scooter has a mechanical disc brake system installed on the front and back tires.
The mechanical brakes are ineffective since they operate on the friction-based halting mechanism. The time it takes to stop the vehicle is not quite prompt and on-demand, so you must ensure you are conscious of your brake application.
However, the lower price puts a limit on the company’s research & development team as they need to make sure that the scooter is value-adding and profit-producing at the same time. The 140mm front and rear mechanical disc brakes are acceptable in this price range.
Are LED Lights Better At The Night?
Many affordable and cheap electric scooters usually have insufficient lighting, as the companies consider it a secondary feature. However, the Yumeway corporation understands the importance of lighting, especially when safety is considered. A proper lighting system enables the rider to see at night.
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter has an LED light installed at the front and right above the wheel. It is noteworthy that LED lights are brighter than normal lights available on the market.
Furthermore, the company has integrated a brake light at the rear end and turn signals to ensure you are safe while applying brakes or taking turns.
The company has also equipped the YUME S10 Electric Scooter with an LED strip on either of the lateral sides. These strips ensure that the scooter is visible to other drivers on the road. It also adds to the overall look of the electric scooter.
The LED screen is an important thing to have at your disposal. It enables you to keep track of your riding stats. You will find the LED screen on the right side of the handlebar.
It shows superior numbers relating to the ride time, rate of speed, remaining battery life, and gear. The LED screen is made colorful to make the stats more visible.
How Speed Controls With A Controller?
The controls incorporated on the handlebar of the YUME S10 Electric Scooter are simple to understand, but we would rank it as limited. The left side of the handlebar has a power switch, an indicator button, and a horn.
On the right hand is an LED screen with a power button and a speed mode setting. You can set two different speed modes. A manual key ignition is also installed below the LED screen.
However, you will not see the eco/turbo and single/double buttons. The absence of these buttons is entirely due to the standalone motor. Dual motors enable the user to manage power consumption efficiently, but that is not the case here.
Is it Water resistant?
The water resistance of IP54 is sufficient for an electric scooter that is a cheap option for all users with a limited budget. However, we would recommend refraining from going out in rainy weather. It is better to seal electric components with insulation or water-resistant tape.
What’s inside the package?
As expected, the company offers limited accessories to keep costs low. The list is as under:
- The YUME S10 Electric Scooter
- A 2A charger
- A user manual
- A tool kit as a gift.
Is it a good electric scooter?
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter is not one of those products that you would consider perfect. It is an ordinary electric scooter available at an affordable price. Despite having a scarcity of impressive power stats, the manufacturer designed it with clarity regarding the objective that it is trying to achieve.
The spring suspensions and mechanical brakes are acceptable since other substitutes cannot be integrated cheaply. Moreover, you would feel that the controls are designed intelligently to make them accessible and easy to understand. The stability is maintained through pneumatic tires that complement the spring suspension system.
You might feel that the battery and motor could have been better. However, power features are usually the most expensive ones to install in a vehicle. The durability and safety are impressive at such an affordable price since we know other companies that forego these crucial features too.
Who is it made for?
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter is a budget-friendly device, so it has limited features and a defined usage pattern. It can be used while shopping because an electric scooter’s maximum weight limit is impressive at such a low price. The distance range is sufficient for routine chores since it does not require long traveling.
The same principle applies to trips to school. If your school is nearby or a few miles away, the YUME S10 Electric Scooter is the way to go. However, this vehicle is not preferable for delivery or courier service because the mileage and speed do not complement this usage. Besides this, a long-distance trip to other cities is incompatible since it demands a lot of power and battery life.
How fast does it go?
The YUME S10 Electric Scooter is not considered among the fastest vehicles. The single motor with just 1000 watts cannot enable the YUME S10 Electric Scooter to go at high speeds. The top speed you can achieve while traveling on this scooter is just 30 miles per hour, roughly 48 kilometers per hour.
The S10 Electric Scooter can only be used to travel amidst city traffic. Going on a highway would feel tedious and annoying because you would not be able even to match half of what other vehicles can achieve as an output.
What makes this scooter so unique?
The best thing you would like about this incredible technology is its budget-friendliness and affordability. It isn’t easy to find an affordable scooter with solid features. However, the YUME S10 Electric Scooter ticks all the necessary boxes.
The manufacturers have tried their best to keep features simple and value-adding simultaneously. The suspension system is spring-based, while the brakes are mechanical.
One might argue that these are not the best components installed in a modern electric scooter, but you must consider the price you are buying this technology.
The lighting system is safe and complete, like any other high-end scooter. Furthermore, the Yumeway corporation did not compromise its durability and toughness to reduce costs. No matter how limited the power and performance features might feel, we believe the company has done a great job keeping it simply brilliant.
What Is The Price?
The price at which the Yumeway corporation is offering the YUME S10 Electric Scooter is astounding. It is available at 899 dollars on the company’s official online store. This price is quoted for all buyers willing to purchase an electric scooter but with insufficient funds.
However, a lower price means that the specs and features are compromised to ensure that the product benefits both the manufacturer and the customer. We suggest you save more if you want to purchase a better product.
The conclusion is pretty straightforward. The YUME S10 Electric Scooter is made for all users looking for affordable conveyance options. Despite having such a low price, the company has done well to maintain the proportion of the spec to ensure that the scooter is not redundant for youngsters and the working class.
It is argued that the YUME S10 Electric Scooter has below-par power features since the motor wattage and battery capacity are ordinary. It feels like the company had planned to compromise on performance stats. However, this does not mean that it is redundant or useless.
The spring suspensions are sufficient to mitigate the shocks sustained while landing on an uneven surface. The mechanical brakes and adequate lighting system also work fine to keep you safe at such a low price range. We recommend the YUME S10 Electric Scooter to youngsters with a limited budget who need an environment-friendly mode of conveyance.
The Yumeway corporation has targeted a specific market segment with limited performance demand. However, if you have a bigger budget and heavier usage, we suggest going for other models offered by the same manufacturer.
