  1. KS16s gryoscope fail?

    My KS16s had an odd issue today. When I was walking it with the trolly the gyroscope seemed to fail. It would tilt forward as if out of power but then it would stop tilting after reaching maybe 20 degrees. Then it would stay that way for a bit and then start tilting back the other way until it was 20 degrees past horizontal in the opposite direction. It repeated this a couple times within a minute before I got back home. Thank god I wasn't actually riding on it when this happened, could have thrown me if it happened at high speed I suppose. Any idea what causes this? Should I stop riding it altogether just in case?
  2. New to EUC

    Hi Guys, I need your help deciding on a wheel. I am from Australia and I have been researching this for quite sometime now. I can't seem to make a decision. Gotway seems to have the best capacity in the market but the worst quality control. With all the reported incidents on youtube; I do want to get the best, sturdiest, off-roading, long rage, highest wh out there but I dont want to die. Now I have seen many people on youtube crashing with Gotways without even reaching half its speed limit... ACM 2 giving up at 15mph after hitting a minute bump on the road. I sense a lot of frustration in many videos with gotways (ACM 2 with a wrong footplace installed). I need someone to give me an honest opinion on what is the best and safest out there for what I want bearing in mind that I dont plan on going any faster than 45 km/h - 96 kg weight
  3. Kingsong KS-16S best color?

    Hello, I am abut to order a Kingsong KS-16S, and I will like your recommendations for the best looking and most practical color to have it?
  4. Hi all, I just got a KS-14D a few days ago. Since I had been practicing with my son's InMotion V3C (two small tires on one central wheel) I could get the grasp of this "real" monocycle pretty fast, and I can drive it already around town. However, I have noticed that when going straight on flat roads and over 20 km/h the wheel kind of wiggles or shakes a little side to side, like it's going to loose balance. I can handle it but it's uncomfortable and I don't understand why it's happening. I have moved the riding settings in the app from medium to hard/experienced, but still happening. Is it me not riding it properly? Is it some kind of calibration that needs to be made? Any help is welcome. Thanks! Daniel.
  5. 840wh 18s Range

    I’ve been given the opportunity to get a good deal on a practically new 18s . It’s the 840wh version though. I’ve heard that the 1680wh version doesn’t really have all that great of a range so wondering what people have gotten out of the 840. My main consideration here is price . Is 25-35mi feasible ?
  6. 100 miles on my 16S

    Just crossed the 100 mile mark, with the wheel in hand about 7 weeks. Definitely not the quickest to the mark I know. I have worked my way up to the full 35 km/h that she is capable of, but finally did experience the dreaded lower-limit ollie at 27 km/h or so, with charge indicating 50 percent. Guess that happens on a windy day with 200 lbs trying to cut through it. It took me about 20 or so minutes to be up and riding, and my daughter picked it up on the third day of her adventure-in-learning. (she did end up with a large bump on the rear of her right ankle when it kicked up at her, and it's still there after 5 weeks or so) It has held up well from both of our attempts to break it apart. Definitely recommend safety gear, especially wrist guards, if you are going off-roading with it at all. Hidden holes can detach the wheel from your feet faster than you can recover, and suddenly you're looking down at the dirt, or up to the sky. I'm now confident enough to have ridden it around town a bit and on campus. Still can't pendulum or ride backwards, but tight turns and jumping off of curbs is no problem, and I can ride very slow, so I feel safe enough around moving obstacles. It has been a blast to ride, and to see the expressions of people that wonder "just what the heck is that?" For anyone that is thinking about getting a wheel, this does seem to tick all of the boxes of speed/reliability/safe/durable that I highly recommend it. Looking forward to many more miles, and increasing all my skills. (and for when they come out with a version with a trunk!)
  7. King Song 14D

    So I’ve had my KS14D for about a month now and I have to say ...it’s awesome . A while back I started commuting to and from work on a Segway Mini Pro , it was great at first but soon got very dull. So I started looking into EUC’s. After a lot of research and sleepless nights staying up and looking at all things EUC I decided on the 14D with the help of @Joey Serrin at ewheels. Within 5 days it came across the country and landed on my front porch . Man was I excited ! That first night it was pouring down rain so I took to the hallway to get a feel for it. I have to say that was a very discouraging 3 hours . I couldn’t go 5 feet without losing my balance and stepping off . The next day I took it to the parking lot at my work and spent 5hours honing my skills. The wheel took a few tumbles and despite my fears it held up to all the punishment I threw its way! So big kudos to kingsong for making a really rugged machine! By the end of the night I was able to ride it all the way back home . Now the fun had really started . My overall impressions are that the thing is built like a tank , maneuvers on a dime after getting the hang of it and is actually pretty fast . It’s capable of riding right at its limit (about 18mph) with ease . The D sports a 420wh battery which is small in comparison to other wheels but is more than adequate for my 3mile round trip to work and most days I take it along the hiking trails around the lake near my house and it performs very well there too. I was actually really surprised with how adept it is off road , large roots , sand, grass , gravel , light mud ...it eats it all up. And speaking of the lake : On about day 4 I got really comfortable (too comfortable) and went on a night time trail ride . I hit a root I didn’t see coming and my foot slipped off a pedal and landed on another root , twisting my ankle and causing me to lose the wheel ...it ended up completely submerged in a deep puddle/overflowed segment of one of the streams . I grabbed the wheel out as soon as I figured out where it was (maybe 5-10 seconds..maybe more it was a tense time ) powered it off and whiped it down . To my surprise it was perfectly fine ! I turned it back on and rode it home . No issues to date . if you’re on the fence about your first wheel or maybe upgrading from a Ninebot or inmotion v5 this is the one ! Very reasonable price at $770 and a real beast in all conditions.
  8. KS14M (800W / 174WH)

    KS14M 800W 174WH, upgradeable to 348WH AFAICS 20 km/h, goes up to 30 km/h with 2 batteries So this new KS14M model seems to replace the old KS14B (quick swappable batteries). Looks like unfortunately they couldn't implement a way to once again make this model quick-swappable battery-wise, so this model seems to be targeted as a cheap price point wheel / travel wheel.

  9. Hello, Any of you, thought using his EUC as battery booster ? Recently I ran out of battery with my motorcycle. I went back home to take my cables and came back to the bike on my EUC. Once arrived, I had to ask someone his battery to connect my cables while I had a 840Wh battery between the feet. In conclusion, did anyone imagine doing an outside exit of the EUC battery to connect the clamps?
  10. EUC maintenance period

    Hi, Any rough idea of when we should consider doing a maintenance? Every xx km? or when the tire has to be changed? or after a certain amount of time? Due to the incure injuries in case of possible device failure, I would prefer anticipating? . . . I am still recovering from my last fall :-) I did 750 km in 3 months
  11. pedal grip

    Hi guys, Does anyone has already changed the grip on the pedal? Ineed to change mine very soon after only 750 km. Any advice? or if a thread already exists about it? kind regards
  12. Time to sell this beauty, due to upgrading. As I'm out of town currently, I'LL check tomorrow the total milage and post actual pics too. Purchased in June last year.

Asking price €880. Prefer collection, but shipping is no prob. (Costs buyer)
  13. Urna Semper Stan O'nymos January 3, 2018 Ooh lala The KS18S The night looks better in electronic shades of green. In the 1930's France decided if the world was collapsing under the great depression, France was, before the final end of civilization, going to finally show the world its superiority in the form of automobiles. They began unceremoniously with push button electronic transmissions that had 6 gear speeds in forward or reverse. Later there were water cooled inline six cylinder fuel injected engines capable of 80mph in the beginning and by the end of 1939 you could cruise at 110 mph in a hardtop retractable convertible down the Champs Elysees on spanked pigs leather upholstered seats blinding all onlookers with spools of chrome accenture off curvy hips fashioned from metal over the fenders and skirts. The styling began, well how do I say this, not so British as to offend the eyes, but wound up evoking the lines and movements of giant chrome accented majestic biplanes glistening in the sky as they roared past the throngs of unwashed hankering for a hunk of cheese cake. These cars hovered more than wheeled on the chassis powered by the thundering inline six dual header sans catalytic converter. Fun names like Delage, and Delahaye, Peugeot, or El Glaoui who was known as Lord of the Atlas and was the Pasha of Marrakesh, ruled the times. No longer was the car just a noisier wagon wheeled moving money pit, less dependable, sluggish, pollution machine of pain and sorrow. Now in 1939 it was fancy and able to go at tremendous speeds in luxury and safety as well. No wonder why Hitler was so upset at the French. It will be told in history books of the future that Electric Unicycles have now reached that similar period in their development. It is so proven with Kingsong's newest release, the KS18s an 18" electric unicycle capable of 30 mph and a range good enough to take you to the Piggly Wiggly grocery store in Zebulon from Rural North Carolina and back. Thats as fast as a horse. Styling of today's so called futuristic wheels is such infantile braggadocio. Yeah? You know what the Segway a1A looks like? Correct it looks like a wheel. How brave those designers must feel. They have reached into the future and come up with - nothing. Im not buying it. Kingsong, like their designs or not, have always been voluptuous with the lines on their machines. I own a 500w KS14 that looks like a stretched out "portable" Singer sewing machine in its plastic case. It really is something out of a 1960's science fiction TV show of what a robot companion would look like in the year 2020, which is only 2 years away so that makes Kingsong almost 5 years ahead of the game already. This new much larger wheeled big brother looks like Darth Vader's helmet if it was pressed in a 3 Stooges sized vice. Oddly enough it makes no difference whether you look at it from the front rear or either side. You will still see the dark side staring out at you from the honeycombed metal bluetooth speaker covers. The KS18s and the KS18ay both have quadraphonic bluetooth speaker systems capable of conversation squashing sound wherever you wish to go. The USB port above the power button assures you that the STREAMING can continue as long as their networks deems so. I would guess the white cases look like a storm trooper's helmet, and they do in all the pictures I have seen them in, which is one. C'mon, who wouldn't rather be Darth? Onto the ride, but wait the app. It has been restyled and much of your well thought out comments were lost in translation, but it is more colorful and it is easier to access the set up modes for speed, ride, and vertical calibration. Vertical calibration is essential to setting up the vehicle for style of lean while on the vehicle. I am short, so I found myself leaning too far beyond the pads. Just enter the calibration mode and lean the machine a little forward. Voila! Setting up the ride is an equally easy task, but not even Confucius himself could solve the speed warning settings riddle. I will be asking kingsong customer support about this paper finger trap where every level I would like to put it at is rejected or fails. So far I have only received the first warning which is set to around 23mph. This machine drives like a Mercedes G class SUV. Perfectly suited for the absentminded fellow or housewife who doesnt always notice that the sidewalk is not ended by a ramp but a curb or the giant root bulge in the road that is milliseconds away. The KS18s has handled both of those obstacles at low to medium low speed without me even having the feeling that I needed to panic or brace for a launch. It has a nearly 3" wide tire and that and the larger diameter really smooth out the worst of the road. Oddly enough, certain smaller bumps act more as ramps than the bumps I was accustomed to treat them as on my 16" V8. The KS18 rides the offroad trails like a Clydesdale who has consumed a liter of redbull. It has power, 1500w of constant and double that at the peaks. It has so much power that I find myself leaning far too forward because of the unbelievable climbing strength and sandiness of the soil it just wants to plough through and will with a little patience and less panicked verve on my part. The KS18s is heavy, heavier still with the 1680wh battery pack, but it handles like it wants to be a baby lamb. It can turn on a dime and head up a leaned over tree if you let it. At first it can handle like trying to retrieve a hat from the ground while closing a diesel truck door. It is that thrill of cheating certain digital amputation that encourages the rider to quickly learn how to carve a 90° corner like Betty Crocker spreading icing on her mother's birthday cake. It is a quick learning curve and one you will want to do out of passion because of the ride the KS18s delivers. I am 145lbs with boots and a hat and just over 5 and a half feet tall, so hearing giants over 6" tall tell me how much fun it is,... Well I was skeptical. I am no longer a skeptic. This thing charges up the steepest hills, carves out a perfect arc on a busy street, and is a champ on grass or dirt trails. Stopping while going downhills is a much bigger chore due to the counterbalance I need to create down steep hills without starting the wobbles. This is getting much better after the first week of riding, and as I get more used to the vehicle's dynamics. The KS18 is remarkably comfortable while riding in foot traffic at slow speed. It is much less noticed than my mTen, perhaps because it is so obvious and therefore easier to predict where its heading. Maybe they just fear it more. Did I mention its heavy? Fortunately it has a space in the tire rim for a lock cable that you can string up to the handle as well. It has a locking mechanism that I am told will disable the vehicle with a passcode. I believe that, since I have been disabled by several passcodes of mine. So I have not tried out this function yet. It is tall, but it comes with a seat that is comfortable and pretty fun in a Charlie Chaplin sort of way. The lights are reversible depending on the direction you are headed in. In other words, if you drive butt first the rear headlight will light up the ground just before you hit whatever danger lurks in the dark and the same if you head face first into life. But hey the tail lights are perfect and activate when braking which is so totally cool! Besides if you are driving Darth Vader's head at night may I suggest some night vision goggles to compliment the look?

  15. Following up on @Marty Backe and his disappointment in the KS-18s range I decided to do another 100-0% test on my KS-16s which I haven't done for a pretty long time, just in case I remembered wrong. I know I have been somewhat disappointed in the range of my 16s for quite some time. I start to get noticeable performance throttling as high as 40-50% battery. If you are using a charge doctor to start at 80% this doesn't give you very much "fun" range to play with. Below 35% the performance drops to just barely faster than a ninebot, around 15 mph. Below 15% you are limited to 12 mph. So from 100-0% today I got 23.5 miles, approximately 2.5 hrs of riding. To be fair this is on the hills of San Francisco both up and down some fairly steep inclines over the course of the test. I generally only feel good about riding my KS-16s for about 10-15 miles most days. Once it starts to throttle your top speed it also starts to struggle to climb hills and does not take well to hitting bumps at speed. Since I live in an urban area full of steep hills I always feel these effects if I ride more than 5 miles one way since my home is on top of a giant hill. So if I had double the battery (840 in my 16s to the 1680 of the 18s) I would have made 47 miles. This is almost exactly what Marty got I believe so I feel like those who have speculated one of the three battery packs may be disconnected are likely wrong. It really probably only goes ~45 miles if it is roughly double the endurance of my 16s. Since I use my 16s primarily to commute 7 miles per day roughly the range does not stop it from fulfilling that primary function. However, it really is not enough to go on longer group rides or extended hill climbing as the battery starts to limit your performance to the point where you could not keep up with the group within a fairly short amount of time. That being said the wheel has been great for traveling around the city and I still have fun riding it - but it just turns out the practical usable range for me is so far below what is commonly described on this forum that I feel like people should be informed. If I'd known the range was that limited I might have chosen a different wheel instead. What do you guys think? Are the riding conditions here (cold and hilly) making this more of an issue for me than for the average 16s owner? Or have others noticed this as well?

  18. Well, I was 95% sure I would be buying a Gotway Tesla but just pulled the trigger on a 16S. I was hemming and hawing over Gotway's reliability concerns but @EcoDrift's post about the insane failure/reject rate of Gotways sealed the deal for me. I know I'm not your target market but I wanted to thank you for your post there and that I highly respect your opinion, considering the volume of wheels you likely move. I did not want to reward a company that plays so free and loose with end-user safety with my business. Anyways, I was spending too much time researching all these different wheels and I felt like I'd have buyers remorse regardless of which wheel I went with and it was stressing me out. I figured the best way to stop stressing about it was to take the plunge and buy one or the other. Knowing myself, I know I'm not the type to wear a full face helmet and my dental insurance probably wouldn't cover catastrophic damage that a face plant at 30 mph would do to me, not to mention whatever other injuries I'd incur if the wheel cut out on me. If I was younger or on the opposite end of the spectrum, retired with pension/investment income, I may have gone with the Tesla but I still need to work for a living. However, I can't help but feel a little regretful thinking about the 30 mph that could have been; the 22 mph max speed will be a tough pill to swallow. I didn't intend for this to turn into a Gotway bashing thread but man, I really, really wish either Kingsong offerred something similar in power/speed/range with their build quality or that Gotway would up their QA (or quality in general). I look forward to continuing to lurk on this forum. Best regards, gr8ps

  21. Opening a KS-16s

    Hello, Has anyone already opened a KS-16S who could share some hints? I am stuck at the very beginning, while un-clipping the led plastic cover. There is an hold (green arrow in the pic) to un-clip the first attach, it goes fine. But then how to un-clip the next two (red arrows), without breaking them or the plastic ? Any idea?
  22. Goodbye, KS16B ***sigh***

    Dear wheel, please accept my most heartfelt sympathies. My thoughts are with you, dear KS16, and the Kingsong family during this difficult time. Wishing you peace to bring comfort to your new owner, courage to face the days ahead and loving memories to forever hold in my hearts. Words seem inadequate to express the sadness I feel loosing you. But because winter approaches again, with lots of skiing days and no possibility to ride a wheel, I needed to give you away, after sharing lifes for more than 3000 km. I'm sure you will be happy there. And I, the hollow-hearted preowner, I'll feel ready next spring to take the next step to a KS16S, Gotway Tesla or the like.
  23. I just bought a kingsong and I cannot get the app to work nor the Bluetooth on the unit itself was wondering if anyone may know how to do a factory reset.
  24. A short clip of the problem I am having with the Charge Doctor. It had been working fine.. charging my EUC up to 85-88% every day up until yesterday... What happened yesterday was I put another charger on the CD to dual charge... Then in the morning.. I noticed that one of the charger is dead. (No LED) And now the Charge Doctor is acting all crazy on me. My KS16S was at 50% battery.. and plugging this CD connected charger in should charge the unit and show the charging level. But the unit goes off within seconds of plugging in. Wondering if anybody had the experience something like this.. Thanks
  25. I stumbled over this seller on Aliexpress, selling accessories for Kingsong 16 inch wheels: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/KINGSONG-16inch-electric-unicycle-All-accessories-parts-motor-shell-Controller-motherboard-Pull-rod-handle-lever-Light/32832356086.html This made me think about if it would be possible to upgrade my Kingsong KS16B to KS16S by replacing my current motor and controller card with new ones? Since I think I have read that the shell is almost the same for B and S. Not that I am exactly sure what model the accessories from this Aliexpress seller is suitable for, you cannot tell from the product descriptions (at least I can't...). But, hypothetically: would it be possible, or if not: what would be the caveats? And would it be enough to replace the motor and the controller or are there other parts that are vital for a successful upgrade?
