  1. What's the biggest thing you've carried around on an EUC?

    Hi guys ! Here is a pic of the heaviest thing I've carried around
  2. THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Hi guys, here is a little group ride with 3 GT16, 1 dualtron ultra, 1 ACM & 1 KS14C Enjoy !
  3. The Photo Thread

    Hi meep, It's recognizable by the "KS sports" or "Kingsong sports" written on the the pads of the KS16S, and because the KS16B doesn't exist in grey, the KS16S is only available in grey or black, the KS16B is in white or black
  4. The Photo Thread

    @Vik's@Smoother It is a gotway MCM4 v2 HS or MCM4 Pro On the first picture, it looks like KS16B(with Msuper3 pads)/KS16S/Msuper3s+/MCM4 am I right @Michael Vu
  5. Rocwheel GT16 92V coming soon (2018)

    Who thinks this is a GT16 92V prototype ?
  6. The Photo Thread

    @meepmeepmayer I have both, I sold my GT16 but I still have 3 EUC
  7. The Photo Thread

    Hi guys, A little winter (cold) tour with the Monster & my friends Dualtron Ultra, he needed to take a break
  8. THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Hi guys ! Here is our christmas special group ride, next one will be when temperatures will be higher
  9. The Photo Thread

    Hi guys, testing out a new baby this afternoon !!! (ft ACMs+ 1600Wh) Maybe I'll have a review coming for this one, even though it's not an EUC !
  10. Did you have your wheel stolen?

    @Hunka Hunka Burning Love mine wasn't stolen, but broken instead :/ In France in Paris, a rider who met a potential buyer for his ACMs+ 1300Wh got robbed, because the guy tried his ACM, he flew off with it, impossible to catch up on foot with a +40kph capable EUC...So for those of you who want to sell an EUC without any worries, maybe just try to put a tilt back at 20kph, because you'll be capable of catching the thief. Most of the time I think that EUC are difficule to steal because we take them with us all the time. For the ebay EUC, I can't say if it's stolen or not, maybe ask why he doesn't have the charger...
  11. Gotway Tesla vs KS16S?

    Hi, I agree with @Marty Backe about the 2000W motor of the Tesla being a safer option than the 1200W KS16S motor, of course considering you're going at reasonable speeds. I would really love to test out a KS16S, I have only a deep experience with the KS16B & a little experience on the Tesla. For starter, I have to point out the fact that the Tesla seems to be the best EUC Gotway has come out with in the past year, fat wires, fat axle, nice finish on the shell, water resistant...the greatest thing is that it is definitely an improvement over the ACM, in termes of safety, agility, speed, acceleration, fun...everything (except the range). The shell of the KS16S being almost the same as the one on the KS16B, I would say that the trolley has a tendency to break over time, we can't say for sure on the Tesla, but if seems like it's the same type as the one on the V8 which has a better record. About the agility, the KS16S may have a better motor, motherboard & therefore algorithm than the KS16B, I feel like it's not as agile as the Tesla (being between the ACM and GT16 in terms of agility). About the speed, it is about the same as on the ACM, however my guess is that the 500W extra power is for the safety, so that if you go over the final alarm, there aren't as many chances of falling as on the ACM (top speed 49kph, 53kph on the Tesla, but the ACM seems to cut at 54kph, the Tesla at 66kph...) To be honest, I would say that the extra speed on the Tesla is really enjoyable from time to time, even if you don't ride +40kph all the time, but lets say if you want to cruise at 35kph in a straight line, the KS16S will always be at the limit while the Tesla will have a huge margin, plus most of the riders I know of have enjoyed being able to go +45kph, all other EUC then seem so slow (if you want to ride fast, I highly recommend that you wear a full face helmet for safety at least) Pfff I've lost myself..I've enjoyed the Tesla so much, I might not be very objective, but the Tesla is my favourite EUC for now so...I had to defend it, gotway has put in some effort.
  12. THE VIDEO THREAD!

    First minutes of riding on the Tesla with "on the go" feelings (in french however...)
  13. THE VIDEO THREAD!

    Hi guys, I don't know if this video has already been shared, but I think it's freaking awsome to have a competition like that ! Not even talking about the skills of the riders !!
  14. Gotway TESLA short review/comparaison

    @KingSong69 Yes you are absolutely right, I didn't mean to neglect the improvements of the KS16S over the KS16B, I was refering to the form factor and overall design. I would say that the KS16S is not a "real" competitor of the Tesla, having "only" a 840Wh battery, and also being much slower with "only" a 1200W motor. I would really love to test one though ! Of course my comparaison is only my opinion and one may not agree with me, so don't take my impressions as facts @Marty Backe Haha sorry Marty, it's payback because you were the one who got me to buy the Monster Seriously, if you were considering the GT16, I would say go with the Tesla, if I could swap my GT16 for a Tesla, I would, plus it's supposed to be a waterproof EUC. If you like your ACM, you will love the Tesla, it's everything the ACM is but better, even at very high speeds (+45kph) it feels quite safe, because with the 2000W motor, there is a reserve of power that the ACM doesn't have at the same speed.
  15. Hi guys, I was lucky enough to borrow one of the first Gotway Tesla 1020Wh in France to one of my friends, I rode on a Gotway ACM 1300Wh & Rockwheel GT16 for a while now, and a little on a Gotway ACM1600Wh, I will compare this EUC to it's current competitors (at least the ones I can talk about). My first impression when seeing it was how beautiful it looked. I already checked the pictures on the internet, and review videos, but seing it in real is something different. The glossy finish on the led rings gives a premium feeling to the EUC, overall I really love the design, very close to the Gotway MCM4 and close to a V8. I can say that for me, it is the best looking EUC that Gotway has come out with so far (this is subjective of course). First go with the Tesla, and woooow that is a freaking awsome EUC. The most noticable improvement over the ACM is that it is very smooth, the algorithm must be different, and also it is a very quiet EUC, I would say it's even quieter than the V8 !!! I have been riding on a Gotway ACM 1600Wh lately, the tiny pads of the Tesla sits much higher than the ones on the ACM, so overall it gives the impression that the EUC is much more stable at slow speeds. The acceleration is very progressive, it's not as brutal as on the GT16, but feels much more stable and stirdy than on the ACM, the 2000W motor sure gives confidence while accelerating. Regarding it's comfort, I would say it's more comfy than the ACM, compared to the GT16 it's hard to tell, the soft rubber under the pedals of the GT16 sure helps but the GT16 is so much more brutal than the Tesla, the Tesla feels much more gentle...The Tesla absorbs the shocks about the same as the GT16 I would say, maybe the GT16 has a slight advantage over the Tesla, not sure... At slow speeds, the Tesla is still very agile, it can go slower than the ACM, I measured 2.4kph on the Tesla, 3.6kph on the ACM, 2.3kph on the GT16. At high speeds, the Tesla is a beast ! Much more stable than the GT16 and the ACM, it doesn't have the slow tilt back that the GT16 has when reaching 40kph and above, at 44kph I felt very confident, and safe, I would say that it almost feels as stable as on the Monster, and more stable than on the Msuper3 that I have tested (although I didn't test it long enough to be sure at 100%). As I rode along, I felt that the pads are a little hard on your legs, I feel like there is some room for improvement here, or maybe it's because I'm small. When walking with the Tesla and it's trolley, it feels very natural, much more esthetic than the one on the ACM & GT16, and I would say it will probably last longer than the one on the KS16XXX being appart from the carrying handle. Lifting the Tesla is like any other EUC. Laying it against a wall is easier than on the ACM & GT16 because the trolley is centered. Performances : I measured 6.8s accelerating from 0 to 45kph with the Tesla, 6.5s on the GT16, 8.1s on the ACM, 9.4s on the Monster. Top speed with my weight on the Tesla : 53kph, GT16 : 53kph, ACM : 49kph, Monster : 51kph. I was suprised that the Tesla can accelerate as fast as the GT16 because it feels much more gentle, but I much prefer the acceleration on the Tesla. Reactiviy is not as good as the GT16 which keeps the lead on this one, still much better than the ACM 1300Wh & 1600Wh. I would say it is not the best Freestyle EUC overall, in hard mode it's not as hard as the V8 for example, but for an every day use it's perfectly balanced. I've rode it during the night, the front light is very very bright, it's all we need, you can now see what's coming from far away, it's brighter than the front light on the V8 & KS16B, it's simply the brightest light I've ever seen on an EUC, too bad there isn't the same thing at the back, the lateral leds are very nice, you can stil be seen from behind but I would say you should probably add a light at the back for safety. Regarding it's size, if looks quite big, but it doesn't feel big, in fact it feels smaller than the ACM, have a look at the pictures for size comparaison. To summerize, I would say that the Tesla is really really an incredible EUC, I didn't expect that much out of it, even though I haven't rode it for very long, I think it's my favorite Gotway for now, compared to the GT16, it's a better finished EUC imo, compared to the ACM, it's a big improvement except for the range (that I haven't tested, I would say it's about the same as a GT16 1036Wh). I see it as a great commuters EUC, it feels solid, it's powerful, silent, pleasant to ride...only the range would be an issue for me (I guess it'll gove 80km going 20kph). I would recommand this EUC to anyone who don't need +60km range, and who don't know what to choose between the ACM, GT16, and maybe the KS16S (that I haven't tested but if it's just a fast KS16B...)
