Hello everyone, i wanted to open a new topic related to all Rockwheel GT16 owners and for those who are willing to get one. I've ordered for my girlfriend from AliExpress (Rockwheel Store, mr. Yi Chen) a GT16 84V with 858Wh and we hope to get the wheel within the next 3 weeks. The reason to buy an GT16 instead of Inmotion V8 or Kingsong KS16 (-S) was the sporty and completely different design. Also the capacity of the battery and the good experience including trust to the seller was one reason to order the wheel "blind". I hope we do not get disappointed with our choice. To bridge that time I wanted to know your experience about the GT16. Is it durable? How does it look like with additional firmware updates, is there a possibility with bluetooth and smartphone app? I would greatly appreciate if you could share your experiences and insights with us so far.
Rockwheel GT16 Android APP RockWheel-2017-4-12.apk The source where I downloaded the attached file is from the google drive link of a comment of the YouTube User Wing Kit Chu, from the video of Citi Wheel: https://youtu.be/YiL_Bnefces https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B4SnC7pimmEUc1dPemx6V2NCR3JjbW15bVRLZkV3Zms3dS1z/view I have downloaded and renamed the file so that the android phone is able to recognize it as .apk file. (I just deleted ".1.1" at the end of the file...) I am not the author of this software. I am not the owner of the source.

Hi folks, I was passing by Paris yesterday, and it was a great opportunity to pass by Urban 360 (https://store.urban360.com/) where they have many wheels in stock, and even available for testing ! I was so excited to test the GT16, but that was the only wheel I couldn't test. Because the motherboard of the GT 16 they have in stock just burned after 100km ! I have been talking with one of the guys working there. He basically told me That version is not supposed to be a prototype, it's the production version If you want to change the tire, it's a hell: you have to deteriorate the shell to access it (aaargh ) The support of the pedal was originally having a piece of rubber that detached after few time, causing the pedal to brutally fall down of 4degrees (dangerous ) he replaced the bad rubber piece by a plastic stuff, but it looked like DIY The pedal surface is in rubber, so you need to add your own grip Isolation against humidity should probably be fine In general, this wheel is dangerous and Rockwheel should rework it at engineering level My personal observations were The wheel is really tiny, doesn't feel hard to carry by hand The pedal is quite narrow, even for my feet that are not so big (40/41EU size) The rubber part of the pedal is kind of big enough, but the metal part underneath is really small, not sure it gives enough stability When folding up the pedal, there seem to be no magnet like for Ninebot or Gotways, so the pedals might just not keep folded after a while The on/off button is located just under the handle, which is handy to pick the wheel up and turning it off with one hand (Gotway should do the same IMO) I thought there would be a kind of "shock absorption" mechanism under the pedals, but it seems the pedals are screwed with the shell, no possible vertical motion of the pedal So I decided to give up on GT16 for now. Maybe I would buy a later, upgraded version if they ever upgrade it. Off topic: I took this opportunity to test the ACM 16 and MSuper v3 in a row. I was disappointed by the MSuper, it doesn't feel easy to sharp-turn at all. The ACM is sooo much more handy to take sharp turns. I definitely prefer the ACM and I will probably buy it instead of the Rockwheel. That's it guys. If you buy the GT16, be very careful.
houseofjob posted a topic in RockwheelSo, as I wait for my GT16 to arrive (ETA next week), ..... Dug up an interesting tidbit from a Korean NAVER Blog GT16 Review [source] [google-translated] about the GT16 having app-less balancing / leveling capability: Turn off GT16 Turn on and hold GT16 until the last prolonged beep, then let go (sequence will be 4 short, consecutive beeps, then 1 long prolonged beep) Level the wheel Press the power button. Wheel will now be balanced. Apparently the previous Rockwheel TB14 had the same function.
