As one of the best-selling line of self-balancing scooters in the market of scooter, Airwheel S3 represents a good many of advantages of Airwheel, e.g. minimal-chic design, user-friendly style and eco-friendly technology. By virtues of these features, S3 gains colossal currency at home and abroad.
As Airwheel S3 is relatively big in size due to the standing board and the long shaft (it is 128 cm high, 61 cm long, 58 cm wide and 22.4kg in weight), it is not convenient to have the whole device packaged in one box. So it was no surprise that I was delivered with two boxes: chassis and control shaft.
In the main box, there are Airwheel S3 chassis and accessories including a charger, a remote controller, an extended pump nozzle and customized night riding set. You have to pay attention that the battery and chassis are separately placed in the box so you have to install the battery yourself, which requires a screwdriver. Here I took a picture of all I got from two boxes.
Next came the DIY process. It did not take me 15 minutes before I finished the assembling of Airwheel S3. Here you can see, my Airwheel S3 is ready to go!
I have to say that Airwheel S3 is not as easy to control as it seems like. I thought it could be easy to balance because there was a standing platform and the wheels are set apart. It turned out that S3 still required a certain amount of balancing ability because the device is steered by the body inclination instead of the control shaft. The control shaft is used only when you want to take turns. But generally, the Airwheel S3 is much more stable than Airwheel’s other models. For just a few times, one can steer the device with proficiency.
I would rather refer the self-balancing electric scooter as “body controlled personal transportation,” as it really can be used to commute or as an alternative to a bike. For gadget lovers, I strongly recommend this Airwheel S3. You will experience the feeling of floating only by trying the Airwheel S3 yourself.
