Performance Test: Putting The Throttle To The Metal

With a 550W motor under the hood, the Gyroor C1S packs quite a punch. Sure, it might not break any speed records, but it’ll get you from point A to point B comfortably with style and grace—just give it a few seconds to warm up, and you’ll be cruising in no time. I really like the throttle on the C1S. It has a half grip throttle similar to what you would find on a motorcycle. it can take some getting used to but once you get the hang of it its quite nice.

  • Powerful Motor: 550 watts is enough oomph to tackle those uphill climbs and power through the urban terrain.
  • Impressive Top Speed: Clocking in at around 18.6 miles per hour, it’s not the fastest scooter on the block, but it’ll get you where you need to go. In my testing, it took about 14 seconds to reach the top speed of 18.6mph.

How's The Range And Battery Life?

Now, let’s talk battery life. The Gyroor C1S boasts a 36-volt, 7.8-amp-hour battery with an advertised range of up to 20 miles. But let’s be real here—your mileage may vary. During my testing I was able to get about half of the stated range by the manufacturer. Range  depends on factors like rider weight, speed mode selection, and the terrain you are riding on. In my Youtube video review I wanted to see if the C1S had enough range to get me to the store to get a Slurpee and back again without running out of battery. If you didn’t see my review, watch it here! I found you have enough juice to keep you rolling for 10–15 miles on a charge. This is expected in real-world conditions. While not the long-range champion, it is perfect for zipping through downtown, around the neighborhood, up to the store for a quick errand, or taking the scenic route through the park or by the beach

Gyroor C1S Ride Comfort and Convenience

One thing’s for sure: comfort is key when you’re spending hours on the road. Thankfully, the Gyroor C1S has got you covered. Sure, there’s no suspension but Gyroor does offer a version of the C1 that does have suspension, but unfortunately, the C1S does not. I would like to see suspension on all of the C1 models because it really does make a difference when going over curbs and bumps in the road. The C1S does come with one of the most comfortable seats on a scooter that I have reviewed. It really helps your rear end on longer journeys!

The Gyroor C1S is specifically designed for the rider with storage space in mind. Not only does it have a rear basket for you to put things in, the C1S specifically has a removable basket that goes on the deck for even more storage space. Now you can go grocery shopping and use the C1S as your shopping cart! Or maybe take your pet for a ride around the neighborhood!

Worried where you are going to put your feet? Gyroor has given us some pretty cool foot pedals that get installed on the basket. This makes me feel like I am riding a motorcycle out on the open road because your feet are on pegs out to the side. I find it more comfortable to ride with my feet on the foot pegs than on the deck itself.

  • Ergonomic Design: Designed with your comfort in mind, you can focus on the adventure ahead without worrying about a sore rear end or stiff back.
  • Practical Storage Solutions: Say goodbye to backpack-induced back pain—there’s plenty of room for all your gear, groceries, and whatever else you need to haul around town.
  • Stability and Maneuverability: With a sturdy frame, 12″ tires and responsive handling, you’ll feel confident tackling tight turns and dodging obstacles with ease. The C1S rides similar to an e-bike with its larger tires rather than a scooter, which usually has tires 2 inches smaller. The 2 inches really make a difference in the quality of your ride. 

Is The Gyroor C1S A Good Choice For Urban Commuters?

Ah, the joys of city or campus living—never a dull moment, am I right? From dodging potholes to weaving through traffic or running late for class, every day brings a new adventure. But don’t worry, the Gyroor C1S is up to the challenge. Its got plenty of range for short trips, a respectable top speed, storage for your groceries or backpack and 12″ tires so your urban commute is as comfortable as can be. 

  • Adaptability: The C1S folds easily, is lightweight, and is easy to take with you pretty much anywhere. Whether you’re faced with a closed road or a crowded sidewalk, the Gyroor C1S can handle whatever the city throws your way.
  • Durability: Built to withstand the rigors of urban life, from bumpy streets to unexpected detours. The Gyroor C1S is built with a strong metal frame and has a weight capacity of 265 lbs.
  • Safety: With front and rear disc brakes that work well and responsive handling thanks to its 12″ wheels, you’ll feel confident navigating even the trickiest of situations, ensuring a safe and enjoyable ride every time.

Pro's & Con's

  • Ample Storage

    The Gyroor C1S excels in providing ample storage space. Featuring an additional basket on the deck, this scooter offers plenty of room to carry groceries, personal belongings, or any essentials needed for daily errands.

  • E-Bike-Like Riding Experience

    With its 12-inch tires, the Gyroor C1S rides more like an e-bike than a traditional scooter. The larger wheels provide increased maneuverability and stability, allowing riders to navigate city streets with ease and confidence.

  • Comfortable Seat

    The Gyroor C1S has a nice, comfortable seat that enhances comfort during longer rides. Its one of the most comfortable stock seats I have tested.

  • Very Affordable

    One of the features of the Gyroor C1S is its attractive price point, priced at $389.00 on sale from $699.00 at the time of writing this article. The C1S remains a budget-friendly option for riders seeking an electric scooter that offers great value for money.

  • Powerful Motor

    Equipped with a powerful 550-watt rear motor, the Gyroor C1S delivers respectable power for urban commuting. While it may not break speed records, the motor provides ample acceleration and performance, ensuring a smooth and efficient ride through city streets.

  • Folds Easily For Portability

    The Gyroor C1S is not too heavy and folds easily at the handlebars and the seat, allowing you to conveniently store or transport the scooter in your vehicle.

  • Lack of Suspension

    The Gyroor C1S lacks suspension, which can result in a rough ride when traveling over uneven terrain or encountering obstacles. Riders may experience discomfort when going over curbs or cracks in the sidewalk, highlighting the need for added suspension to improve ride quality.

  • Squeaky Brakes

    Occasionally, the brakes on the Gyroor C1S may emit a squeaking noise, particularly during gradual slowing down. While this issue doesn't affect the braking performance, it can be an annoyance for riders, especially during quieter rides or in residential areas.

  • Range Only 10-12 Miles

    Gyroor claims a range of 20 miles. Unfortunately, most scooter companies test with a lightweight person on a flat road in speed mode 1. That is not how the average person rides, so the rule is to usually cut the stated range in half. In my testing, I got 10–12 miles on a charge while riding in speed mode 3. I wish it had a bigger battery so I could take it on longer trips.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the Gyroor C1S electric scooter stands out as a practical and efficient solution for urban commuters. Its impressive features, including ample storage, an e-bike-like riding experience, and a comfortable seat, cater to the needs of city dwellers seeking convenience and reliability in their daily travels. With a powerful 550-watt motor and an efficient braking system, the C1S offers respectable performance and safety on urban roads.

While its lack of suspension and occasional squeaky brakes may pose minor drawbacks, the overall value offered by the Gyroor C1S outweighs these concerns. Priced competitively at around $500 delivered, this scooter provides an affordable option for riders seeking quality and affordability in their electric ride.

In essence, the Gyroor C1S electric scooter redefines urban mobility, offering a seamless and enjoyable commuting experience for riders of all levels. With its practical features, reliable performance, and attractive price point, the C1S emerges as a top contender in the ever-evolving landscape of urban transportation.
