  1. Hello, Need your advice: Going to buy a KS16S. Which iOS (preferred) or Android App will work, which disadvantages do they have. Please no guesses, only experiences with KS16S. Thanks a lot.
  2. After having used an electric skateboard around town (mainly for transportation) for the past couple of months I realized that enough of the roads around here are a hair too crappy for said skateboard — the board can take it, but I find the ride too rough. Now I'm thinking about switching from the skateboard to a KS16S (or a onewheel+, but that's another story), but having watched a crapton of EUC youtube videos and having browsed thru that "If you fell off EUC and got injured in the last few years, how are you all doing now?" thread, I had a few questions about cutouts: 1. How common are cutouts? As in are cutouts one of those things that aren't so much a "if you have one" thing as a "when you have one" thing? 2. From what I've seen and read I get that the beefier the EUC, the lower the risk of cutouts, and the closer you hang out at the max speed of your EUC, the higher the risk of cutouts, but what are some other things that raise or lower the risk of cutouts? 3. If I'm around 175lbs (80kg) and I don't plan to go much faster than, say, a bicycle that's cruising around (that's about as fast as I care to go on the electric skateboard), are cutouts something I should worry about if I'm looking at a KS16S? And unrelated to cutouts, I have two other noob EUC questions: 1. If I'm buying in the US, is ewheels.com the way to go? Or are there other sites I should also be looking at? 2. Is carrying grocery bags in your hands while riding an EUC a bad idea, balance-wise?. What about shifting the bags around like you might do if you were walking around with heavy bags and your hands were getting tired? 3. The inmotion V8 was the EUC I was actually interested in (because in addition to the 16" wheel and extendable handle in the KS16S, the V8 also had a kill switch for lifting it) but it sounds like ewheels.com is not going to carry it anymore, and I also got the impression that ewheels was the only official distributor of the V8 in the US. Are there other legit outlets that will now carry the V8 in the US?
  3. Grüß Euch / Hi All, Deutsch: Ich würde mich freuen, von anderen Einradsüchtigen in Österreich zu hören, und vor allem wo und welche trails ihr so befährt ! Ich werde von Zeit zu Zeit ebenfalls Fotos und Infos von netten EUC Touren posten, die ich gemacht hab. Postet in Englisch oder Deutsch, wie ihr wollt. English: I want to start an Austrian group. Feel free to post in English or German (I live during the week near the UN-City in Vienna, and spotted some EUC riders entering it, maybe they don't speak German). From time to time I'll post infos and fotos about nice EUC trails here in Vienna or in Styria, where I originally come from. Maybe others can do the same for the areas they live in. Cheers, HtG
  4. Hellooooo My KS 18S arrived!!! I am very happy
  5. Heyho... Finally some words and Pictures about my new KS18S... Let's start with some Pictures: The wheel: Some ingredients: and: Give this Outcome in the end (Really dont like the KS Advertising :-) ) Open Trolley: Mud Guard: Some words to the wheel: (Some Points i "lend" from another KS18S owner, as i am lazy and can't invent the wheel new) Plus: - Extreme "hard" driving mode, even the softest mode is stronger than my GW V3 67V - Seat is included and can be used on Long rides - Powerful, visible and reversible front and rear LEDs - This is the most powerful wheel produced by KingSong to date, both in torque and Speed. - fat Tire of 2.5 , extremly Grippy, Kenda Manufactered - Built-in fan to avoid overheating (starts at 54° Celsius and stops when brought down to 40-42, don't nail me on exact numbers) works flawless - Old Shell delivers really great stability while driving as it is leaning to the knees(once u are used to it) - 4 speakers, they seam a bit dump first, but on driving Sound excellent! - Excellent Build Quality with Focus on safety -fat wires, mosfets, axle etc (see later photos) Minus: - No trolley: But i have done somethin against that - No mudguard: But i am experienced in building one :-) - Old shell, its very "high", thats very different driving style from the other wheels of the market thus requiring a time of adaptation ? Can also be seen as positive But at all i am not good in listing, i better find my own words: This wheel is a powerHorse!!! The pedal Feeling is rock hard, on accelerating and braking there are nearly no movements of the pedal. This goes so far that when i step back on my Gotway V3 67V that on this wheel i am afraid of the pedal "sacking" for some moments, as you get used to this rock hard pedal Setting on the 18S so fast. Also The 18S main difference from my old 18A is that it is really, really agile and reactive. Where my 18A was sluggish and hard to idle, because slow in direction changing, the 18S really rocks...This has an disadvantage also: When you Need to carry the wheel a bit longer, over some stages or a barrier, you definitly have to Switch the power Off, because if you lift it up and dont have it perfectly grabed in the middle, the wheel/tyre starts rotating so fast and flippy, that you can not calm it down by moving into the other direction anymore. It reacts that fast...and accelerates like a rocket. As this question will certainly follow: Yes, it eats up my Gotway V3(67 Volt 1160wh) to breakfast....Easy! It is way harder and faster, way more powerfull. So this seams the only left competitor against the GW 84V rockets, but i cant compare it fairly to that...as i only have some minutes on a v3s+ until now. Hope on a Meeting we can do some comparison between the V3s+ and the 18S in drive behaviour. But i have to say that i doubt that the 18S can cope with the 84V, as it's just 25% more Voltage.... Where it stays out is the build Quality...and the attemps of KingSong to make their wheels safer, here some photos of the inside with some Explanation: I have open it up and all the wiring is top notch and on really thick wires. KS brings their Motor wires through one axle and the sensor wires through the other axle. The Motor wires...i found no AWG on the cable, but a print saying 2,5mm .....so each of the Motor cables is 2.5mm and it is only one hard strand (not multiple strand wire)....i guess on this there is no Need to fear heat anymore! Under the green protection are the 3 Motor wires...as you see all wires nicely hold together: Try to shoot the print on the Motor wires(3 black cables)...These wires are each just "one strand": The batteries are paralled and all go into one Connection Board with PCB, where each Batterie pack is secured by a fuse, so if one goes crazy or dead, your other batteries work on! Here you can see the PCB-thingie(it is under black folie)...the PCB inside has 3 x 40Amp Fuse, one for each Batterie: The axle has getting thicker than on older KS: End of Part 1 :-)
  6. Kingsong 14(c), 800w, 520wh for sale in the US. $600 obo. Runs and charges fine. This was one of the earliest 14(c) 520s sold in the US so max speed is locked in at something like 18mph and app connectivity too difficult for my 45 year old mind. I did get it to play music once. As soon as I got the wheel I smothered it in gaffers tape to protect it during my learning period. Great wheel that runs fast and hard. Great for an excuse to visit a friend that is working at the ER for a few stitches. No charging or charger issues. Selling to buy a camera. NO WARRANTIES. Caseysearsatty@gmail.com (423) 232-0038
  7. Rider's log (test ride #2): Slow going... Learning to ride a unicycle is hard (and tiring). Balance takes a lot of practice. No injuries to report... On my first test ride I was very timid and extremely afraid of falling at any speed. I barely got to the point where I could travel a few meters without losing balance when my inner tube's valve snagged the housing and tore. (Deflated tire caused valve to stick out at a precarious angle.) Bonehead rookie mistake to avoid -- Don't forgot to check if there's sufficient air pressure before a ride. This is me putting on protective gear to ride my KS14C... This is the park where I go to practice riding my wheel. (Note: it's a hot 90 degree Florida afternoon and learning to balance is exhausting.) This is 'the slalom' where I practice low speed maneuvers (6-12kph). (Note for beginners: These posts are the perfect height to reach out and regain balance...)
  8. Hello guys! My name is Uliana. I am russian girl, 22 y.o. i'm going to a trip across Europe, starting from Riga, going to Madrid, Spain on the electric unicycle. I am planning to ride about 100-150 km/per a day, with a speed about 25-30 km/h. Making some videos during the way, and paint pictures, when i will find beautifel places. That's a plan ? And maybe i will need some help on my way (i hope to won't need it, but who knows) with the wheel. If it will be broken or smthg like that, so please, if someone from u could help me, let me know, please. And if someone could host me, it would be amazing! ? or maybe show me your city - i will be thankfull and happy ? And, yes, if you want to join, i am open, just write to me and let me know. Start from 3rd July. Thank you ?
  9. A couple weeks ago, I started getting a grinding noise from my right pedal and took my 14c apart. I finally found a loose pedal mount. Retightened, put back together. Axle is actually in really good shape. The next problem began when I connected the Yellow, Green, and Blue motor lines in the WRONG order. All accessories worked just fine, but when the wheel powered up it went full speed forward for a few seconds and then full speed backwards for a few seconds. Fastest I've ever seen it spin. It tried to drive up my leg so I held it up until it spun out. After this it would not turn on again. I opened it back up and went through the whole thing 10-15 times with the manual and still would not power on. I figured that I've blown the control board somehow and order a new one from Ewheels. I've been in the middle of moving houses, so I hadn't had any time until yesterday to swap it out. I swapped it out, took my time, triple checked everything and it still won't power up. Is this a bad a power switch, or does anyone have any ideas to resurrect this thing? The battery appears to charge normally so I don't think it's a bad battery control or anything. Any ideas are appreciated
  10. So if you have a Kingsong 14B you know how fun that little singer sewing machine is to ride. The only problem is carrying aroung 2 extra batteries to go on fun rides. Why didnt Kingsong ever make a decent battery for this travel EUC? Who knows, maybe they wanted to sell you a second EUC for home use. (Greedy bastards) Obviously from a consumer's viewpoint, we just want to ride the heck out of the thing. So while waiting for Jason from ewheels to get some more batteries in stock, I searched the web and found a kingsong 348wh battery for $75 untested, (usually means a fault). The fault with this one turned out to be the red conector had the positive and negative wires switched. So I switched them back to match the connector on the KS14B battery pack. Unfortunately the 348wh was larger than the 14B case would allow for proper closing and attachment. So I measured (once) and marked it up with some whiteout and took out my dremmel to cut out the case. I decided to err on the tight side and cut it out to fit during placement. It is very tricky fitting the larger battery around the attachment screw fittings. Be sure to keep the padding inserts to re-secure the battery inside the case. The next task is connecting the battery wires. i decided to use a crimping connector 10awg for one wire to the battery case, and twisting the other connector together and electric taping and gorilla taping over that for further insulation. I am concerned that this may not be the better than soldering the wires directly to the connectors, but from my solar panel experience, there wasnt any current difference so I decided on twisting and taping along with crimping. Does anyone have any input on this? It will be very easy aside from time, to find the correct solder and get it done if there is any danger. Below are the pictures of the work. I am going to get some shrink wrap tape for the front panel where the battery sticks out to replace the gorilla duct tape. I am shipping it, ground, to the machine which I will test out at the end of August. Let me know about any more mods I should make to this if any.
  11. Just here to give my opinions on the Ninebot Mini and why its a more dangerous than any other EUCs and see if anyone else here agrees with me. The argument: Last year before Christmas I bought a Ninebot Mini I had a go on it and realized not only was it less fun because you were required to go in a straight line but significantly more dangerous over riding any EUC. In fact I think the Mini should be speed limited to only 10-12km/h max and not 18! When riding at higher speeds and the floor is uneven you are having to adjust your body to the way the road is. For example when you ride on a slope where your only ONE of your wheels are lower or higher you would have to tilt to the direction that is higher to remain balance. For eg: If you are riding on the side walk and on your left there is a wheel chair ramp making the left wheel dip lower than the right wheel for a short bit you will have to quickly adjust your body to the right so remain balance if you stood still you will lose control. The other concern is that when you do so to maintain your centre of gravity you could knock that pole that controls the left or right, this has also become a major issue when riding on uneven surfaces. Unlike riding on an EUC the centre of gravity is between your foot at the point where the wheel hits the floor making it easy to glide over rougher terrains. On the Ninebot mini you are forced to adjust your body to the way the terrain is much more than what is required from an EUC. The benefit however of the Ninebot Mini is that you are able to pick it up quickly, and stand in place really easily. In short...after owning the Ninebot Mini I quickly sold it(without even owning it for 2 weeks) knowing the dangers that would possess with it and made a hefty profit during the Christmas season. My first actual post on the forum, thanks for reading Jack

  13. I am currently working on a project that is focused on different ways to increase overall awareness of personal electric vehicles including electric unicycles. I have created a very simple 12 question anonymous survey on typeform and it would be very helpful to get a better understanding of other early adopters of the EU to move forward with project. ( https://early-eu-adopters.typeform.com/to/DXnrES ) It is called the "EU Early Adopter Survey".
  14. So we were riding our KS18AY, and it epic failed cruising a long at a decent speed. No warning, no throwback, just dead device. Seems like the motor is fried. Any luck with KingSong warranty service? We bought it through an authorized dealer. PS - thanks for all the advice when buying. Thing rocks. (Til it failed!)
  15. i am from China. i am going to be a visiting scholar from August to January in UMass, Boston. i wonder if i am permited to ride euc in Boston? can euc be carried abound the subway?
  16. Hi, everyone! This is my first post here (and certainly not my last one ;-) ). I'm Justina and I've fallen in love with electric unicycles. It all began from curiosity "how can I improve my daily commute?", and when I bought my first EUC, it instantly became my hobby. Then I met some local enthusiasts and our small group started growing. After a while we started a project together that over time has become www.ElectricUnicycles.eu Our mission is to increase people's awareness of electric unicycles and show them it is not a gadget or a prototype - it is the best way of personal transportation in the world. And it's available now, everywhere! Our goal is to change people's thinking and replace their bicycles with electric unicycles, for daily commute. We live in the 21th century, why do we still use technology that hasn't changed from 200 years? It's time for a change, for people to know about EUCs! I create videos for our YouTube channel (anybody has seen my vids before?), where I try to help you as much as I can - either with choosing the righ wheel, or to do typical stuff like changing the tyre. We have just added new general videos with real life scenarios with electric unicycle usage: Electric unicycle vs bicycle - for commuting - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmmPaLxP4pk Electric unicycle for meetings - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6lDgp59N3ZU If you like them, feel free to share! Many more coming soon! -------------------- Besides this, we also have an European shop with only one category: electric unicycles. We believe this is superior to any two wheelers or scooters and everyone can learn how to ride it, just how everyone had to learn riding a bicycle as a kid - we just don't remember this now. I have a huge €100 discount for all forum members, for the following electric unicycles: * 2017 KingSong KS-16S (840 Wh) is €1514 for forum members, * 2017 Inmotion V8 (480 Wh) with carbon fibre-like kit is €982 for forum members, * 2017 KingSong KS-16C face-lift (680 Wh) is €1075 for forum members, * 2017 KingSong KS-14D (420 Wh) is €886 for forum members. Heads up! We do not collaborate with everyone. We collaborate with the top league manufacturers exclusively, to deliver the best electric unicycles only. Everything comes with a 2-year warranty, a gift, and of course functional mobile app. Dispatch up to 24 hours if not stated otherwise on the site. Do you live outside Europe? Contact me. How to get the €100 discount? It's easy and will take only 3 minutes: 1. Like our new Facebook page (click) 2. Share our Facebook page on your FB profile: https://www.facebook.com/ElectricUnicycles.eu/ 3. Subscribe to our YouTube channel (click) 4. Register on our website: https://www.electricunicycles.eu/ 5.

Contact me by sending a private message here, or via Facebook / website - simply text "DONE" :-) I'm here for you if you have any questions. Also, I'm looking forward to talk to you about EUCs overall, I will start replying to other topics here for sure! Best Regards, Justina PS. This is how we do it:
  17. Hi all, Purchased King song 14c (800w) from Wheelgo late 2015, without warning the axle cracked approximately 3 months later. Unfortunately Wheelgo no longer trade from the UK, Jason was kind enough to send me the complete service manual, but unfortunately his suggestion to 'hammer it back' was never going to work. Dispite a number of emails to http://www.szkingsong.com/ they do not appear to be able to reply. Cost £895 Broken axle 3 months later cost/ time = £298 a month. I am also lucky enough to own an ips and ninebot, had no issues with these units. Liam
  18. GyroMetrics is a free application for logging data and controlling an EUC in a device independent way. See for an introduction. 9BMetrics worked with Ninebot and now it works with Ninebot, Gotway, Kingsong and InMotion. As I don't have all the wheels some support is better than others and all feedback is welcome. The application also uses the AppleWatch if available for showing information, starting/stopping recording and locking/unlocking the wheel or sounding the horn (in Kingsong), @Chriull has devloppend some GNUPLOT scripts for presenting the information which are vailable here. Also some Python generic scripts are available at following posts. First Gyrometrics version is 2.5 which has the following differences with 9BMetrics 2.4: - For Ninebot Users You may enable or disable speed limit from settings while connected You may lock / unlock wheel when connected From the watch you may lock / unlock the weel by doing hard press and selectiong the option in the menu - For KingSong Users Now horn works from the watch. Just a double tap in the center field and should play it - For InMotion Users (all beta features, sorry my accesibility is rare) Disabled serial number checking. Should connect with V8 Lock / Unlock may or may not work as explained for Ninebot Users - For everybody Python Scripts that work in Pythonista and in normal desktop environments (They work in the iPhone ) for plotting data directly from new .9bz archives. Will put them in the GyroMetrics topic Working in new features : Current visible in the watch, color shows direction Battery color will change to orange in phone and watch if battery level > 90% and current is < 0 Other features : Incremental saving - So if application crashes ypu don't loose all data Autocalibration of distance and speed

  22. Hi All, Just signed up on the forum. I started riding an airwheel a few months ago and am on an ips121 now. I have some video riding with some locals in Miami Beach..
  23. A few months ago, I decided to sell my Gotway 820wh Msuper and ACM to upgrade to the 1300 ACM and the MsuperV3s+. I put my order in at ewheels and have been eagerly awaiting their arrival. A few weeks ago, I started reading about all the drama with the Gotway problems you all have read about I'm sure. With these safety concerns, I really started getting worried. I learned to ride on a Kingsong 14c and wanted to buy a ks18, but they weren't available at the time. I opted to buy the Gotway wheels and really enjoyed them. I have 3 of my children that are proficient riders and we enjoy our trips together. Not wanting to put my kids on wheels I knew were having issues, a week ago I decided to cancel my Gotway order and Jason was kind enough to let me switch my order to the KS16s 840wh and KS18s 1680wh arriving in a couple of weeks. Reading about @Marty Backe and his latest problem and fall on his Msuperv3s+, I'm glad I made the switch. (Marty, I hope your wrist feels better...makes me mad that Gotway puts out this stuff and lies about having it fixed) I know Kingsong is not perfect, but I figure it was time to make the switch. I'm sure I'll miss some things about Gotway, but I'm looking forward to giving Kingsong a try again. I'll make sure I give my opinion on How Kingsong is treating me. Matt
  24. I have been riding my kingsong 14c for a few months and It drove me crazy how tiny the pedals are. Obviously, I am not the only person who thinks this. Used 1/4 inch think redwood planks, VHB mounting tape, gorilla glue tape and covered it all with grip tape. It ride so nicely now. Center of gravity is a little bit high, but its not bad. Ankles do not hurt and its just great. Main piece of wood is 10 inches by 4.5 inches. I also made a video showing it all:
