  1. The search for the best electric rideable: The King Song 16X. I believe the Electric Unicycle, as a mode of transportation, is the purest form of Portability and Performance in one package, an almost symbiotic interaction between man and machine.. your body is the controller. If the electric Unicycle is the best form of city personal/portable transportation, Is it the King Song 16X The Best Of The Best? @Marty Backe @Mike Sacristan I am on my second 16X now with the v1.0.7 firmware the wheel is even better now. I just missed the torque and that trolley handle. Enjoy 😁

  2. I have posted this offer on my YouTube channel and Facebook a few times but I may as well do it here as well. If you have a 16X in good condition with relatively low miles but are craving the extra top end speed a Nikola Plus offers, I have a deal for you. I am willing to do an even up swap of my Nikola Plus which has no more than 300 miles on it (probably closer to 200) for a 16X. Each of us is responsible for respective shipping costs. This offer is limited to continental US only. My Nikola + has the 1845WH battery and brand new costs roughly $500 more than a 16X. The Nikola is a

  4. KS16S is a tank - the shell is durable, the wheel is not too heavy, it's a great all around wheel. I can throw it in the trunk, lift it up by the handle easily. It's much more practical than my Nikola Plus which weighs too damn much to take anywhere where stairs are a thing or to load into a grocery cart or anything like that. I almost regret buying it...

  5. All EUCs that I am aware of regenerate power when braking. They don't have normal brakes so the generated power has to go somewhere and that somewhere is the battery. All batteries sag when under load and will settle back when that load is removed. You will also see some battery sag in cold weather and battery will recover when temperature is higher. So, there are many reasons for battery level dropping and then coming back to normal.

  9. The Tesla is fast and looks great value for money at the moment but the OP is primarily interested in getting a sturdy wheel. The KS16S should win hands down against the Tesla in this regard. Here's a thread touching on the possible fragility of the Tesla.

  11. For battery protection & safety, the Gotway Engineers do not think it’s a good idea to daisy chain additional packs without a BMS, as some other 3rd parties have done. In the end the choice is the buyers. We have a contact in Gotway we work with directly. Aliexpress sellers basically just do their own additions and source the cells from wherever.

  12. Log settings have nothing with tour recording, they work independently. Most probably the battery saving is the culprit, but there may be other causes as well. Please take a look at the latest posts in this thread, @travsformation wrote how to turn off battery optimization in Samsung phones. This resolved Bluetooth disconnection/connection problems he experienced and may also resolve your problems.

  14. Hit 1500 miles on my 16X today. I haven't fallen in two months on it and am very much enjoying FW 1.05. I think my big fall was likely caused by not properly calibrating the pedal angle plus me riding with a heavy backpack. That's my best guess after reflecting on the incident. I'm not going to upgrade the firmware until there is a bug free stable version to jump to.

  15. What i can see for that GW/KS ups and cons from the few past years... KS came to wheels later and not with the same "codes" as GW guys. I hear the story that they came from motherboards of money distributors. Huge reliability and complexity needed. They made wonderful wheels. KS14D or KS16B-S were excellent: compact, waterresistant, tough (except for axis on 16B that were stille borderline), LIGHT, and so convenient with trolley/reversible lights. Perfect urban wheels so far... KS has made mistakes like GW, but they didn't stop correcting those. Of course there are

  18. Just pulled the trigger on a Tesla V2. I have around 5 months of solid ride time on my onewheel xr. I wanted to buy a cheaper euc, but I know in the past I tend to exceed the limits of beginner products. Having to reinvest soon after starting. I usually pick new activities quickly and have pretty good balance. (years of climbing, kayaking, skiing and slack lining) So the difficulty intrigues me for sure. Plus I see so many of my friends go from their wheel to an euc, and love it. That being said I actually bought a mten3.. and got talked out of it. If I wanted to shoot the moon I would

  20. Was doing some skill riding the other day and had on my full armour(EVS g7 suit and Fox proframe helmet) .I was riding backwards in a straight line at about 20kmh and got a bit loose and fell backwards onto asphalt and with my back taking first impact and then my head getting a whack.Paying for good armour and a good helmet means i got away with nothing more than a sore back and a stiff neck for 2 days as opposed to probably a couple of broken ribs which hurt like FxxK and a visit to the local emergency department to have my head sewed back together.Crashes are best avoided but are inevitable.

  25. As far as I know the KS16S is one of the more reliable wheels, building on the design of its predecessors. (Hence the old school look) The V10 had some battery and broken pedal issues that should be sorted out now. Id suggest the former for the longer range and nimbleness.

  28. I have the email and I have a cover in hand. So basically, to secure the bottom portion of the cover, there are little "scoops" that hold the cover to the bottom portion of the wheel (Think the area where the lower LEDs are located.) The inner piece they use to secure it is using a Kevlar material that is really slippery. It doesn't get a good grip along the bottom edge. It's probably a combination of the slippery Kevlar and the bottom shape. In any case, the cover can slip off the bottom portion. The cover still stays in place since it's under the pedal As a temporary solution, I

  29. Areas for improvement in my mind: 1. It covers the tail light and speaker making it hard to hear warnings at speed. (I cut holes for these, now the inmotion logo has holes in it, did they really have to put another logo here?) 2. It also covers all of the side LEDs 3. The sides are made of slippery polyester or nylon fabric, so it doesn't allow good grip of the wheel, nor is there really any good way to attach kuji pads or similar to help. (I've considered sewing on soft (loop) velcro patches to the sides of the cover to allow moveable/removeable pads to be attached there.

  30. GW is those days are most reliable wheels. Tesla is like submarine. Can drive not only in heavy rain but also in deep water. You can see promo videofrom GW, Marty video and U-Stride video for reference. I have over 6000km on Tesla and still working very well. Many times drive in the rain, plash, snow, ice. All conditions all year long. No issues.

  31. Tina stated that both KS-18L and KS-18XL can be charged with currents up to 10 A. In case of KS-16X no statements were made from official representatives. However after latest firmware update will start beeping if it detects charging current higher that 5 A. So I suggest not to exceed this limit in case of this EUC. It's sad, as 5 A current significantly limit daily distance that could be achieved When I'm out for a longer tour I always charge my KS-18XL with currents at about 8 - 9 A. No problems at all.

  33. Very common. You use different muscles on the euc. My knee is very strong now but was weak. My soles used to tingle but are now solid. Also some discomfort comes from not being able to relax some muscles. Some muscles need to build up, some need to relax. Just ride and let it happen gradually. Don't do extreme riding too fast. I'm riding 3 years and still developing. For safety it's important to keep your legs moving so the wheel can move up/down, because the wheel has almost no suspension. Your legs have to do it. The problem is that by relaxing the legs you risk cr

  35. Thank you Michael for posting here. To Summarize Michael Shen from KS (it's the same things I have been saying): -KS16x is great wheel for under 40 km/h, acceleration to 40 km/h is great. -Don't ride KS16x in rain. -Overall still a great fun wheel up to 40 km/h, in the future they will take customer feedback and make a better wheel with things customers want What he didn't say that I've been saying: -If you want a safer wheel at more than 40 km/h (24 mph), look at the GW nikola. Better top end acceleration/speed, and pedals stay flat. -the

  36. Just to follow up, I figured I'd give you guys my first impressions of the Nikola+. It's a great wheel. I think I see what @Marty Backe likes about it. The fat 3" width and the pliable tire compound makes for a comfortable ride. Much better than my 18XL, and almost as comfortable as the Monster V3. But at the same time, it has more torque and zippiness. Getting up to 50kph is effortless and it feels stable as well. I don't get acceleration or speed wobbles, but I have gotten some brake wobbles. Probably just need to adjust my foot position back a smidge. It's also nice to have a trolley h

  37. One of my EUCs actually was run over by a truck. I was riding my IPS 121. As I approached a parking lot, a huge diesel pickup with dually wheels exited at high speed in font of me. I put out my hands and hit the side of the truck. My wheel fell over and landed under the truck. Its rear wheels rolled DIRECTLY and COMPLETELY over my EUC. Consider how high the right rear of a truck would raise when going over a EUC. The guy continued accelerating like nothing happened! He was gone in a few seconds! In a testimonial to IPS quality, I was able to ride the wheel home. It was too damaged to continue

  40. I just got the TSG Pass Carbon fiber helmet. It's impressively light and compact for a full face helmet. The fit, size, and feel is better than the Steelbird. It is 3-4 times the cost of the Steelbird. The paddings are well formed like motorcycle helmet pads. There is a quick release tab for the cheek pads. Comes with both tinted and clear shield. Only negative is the chin strap which use a loop buckle. I prefer magnetic quick release system. I think this is going to be my new regular use helmet for winter riding (until the Klim TK1200 come in). I need the full face shield as the temperature i

  41. It all depends on the rider. The rider can't stop moving, but can try to bring the board back and more upright under the body. This is virtually impossible if the nose is stuck in the tar while there is a much, much better chance with fangs. How so? By releasing weight off the board by bending the knees (a lot).

  42. I have two TSG Pass helmets and tried motorcycle helmets similar to the Shoei. I can already tell you that the TSG pass has the best peripheral vision of any helmet, and that the Shoei you’re thinking about has garbage peripheral vision much like most moto helmets. Peripheral vision is extremely important especially if you want a helmet that blocks out sound. With the warning beeps that you WANT to hear on your wheel I don’t think you want to filter that much sound out as the Shoei will filter out. The TSG pass mutes the world a bit but I can still hear my Nikola beeping. Weight is

  46. Probably we have a different understanding what nosedive means. To my understanding it means that the nose hits the ground which usually leads to strong deceleration. I have no idea what you are talking about A standing rider without handlebar who is not prepared for a deceleration will just be thrown off to the front unless they can make a step to the front. That is independent of whether the device has one, two, three, four, or how many wheels. Easy to test in a bus or underground.

  48. Yes... i am from Germany.... I guess the table Shows it quite exactly: If you Always charge to 100% = 4,20 Volt you have About 300-500 FULL cycles...a full cycles stands for a total charge from 0--100%. (so not something from 30-80%...thats just a half cycle) Yeah, when you only charge to 80-90%....you can make your cells live longer….500-1000 cycles then. So when you charge to Full...that means that you can charge About 300-500 Times completly from 0 to 100%.....Have you even do the math what that means?? Lets take the lower number: 300 cycles….With one cycle on my 1
