  1. As I posted on the Facebook group, I've decided to track my whole experience on the forums. I've been lurking around for some time now, but didn't have a lot of quality info to add, so i kept my mouth shut... And now I figured... Meeeh, you'll deal with it :D. So this happened today... Welcome me to the big boy club. From a ninebot one s2 to the 16x's a long way to go... First impressions - blindfolded and clueless, I'd still know this was manufactured in China. Comparing it to the ninebot experience, it's almost eye-watering: the original King Song app feels like a cheap knockoff o

  3. Please, I implore everyone to watch this video and re-evaluate your safety gear practices. What am I doing? I'm in the process of getting an additional full-face helmet that I can wear even when cruising down to my local store on a super-quick trip - something small and lightweight - probably without a visor. Within the last 6-months I have been changing my riding habits. I always wear knee pads and wrist guards. I wear my full-face helmet on most rides, however, around town for errands runs, I have often been wearing no helmet. I am determined to correct this and make my minimu

  4. I want to address some concerns about the 3P pack issue. We are currently using LG M50T. Each cell is capable of a discharge current of 20A, 3P would result in 60a 60*72v= 4320W. Aka: There is plenty of torque and you will take full advantage of the motor. PS: Please @ me if theres anything I've missed.

  6. @Marty Backesaid MSP is the most powerful wheel yet. If that's true, we should be able to measure it, right? Right! Friends and I got ahold of the EUCO demo wheel, and put it head-to-head with the prior high-torque wheels, MSX and MCM5. These runs were timed with a manual stopwatch, over a fixed distance. Notable results: The MSX owner (Rider 1) was fastest up our hill on MCM5, not MSP! But we can see from his current log that he wasn't comfortable taking the MSP to its maximum output. The MCM5 owner (Rider 2) was fastest with MSP, not MCM5! We can see that

  7. Here are my thoughts in all seriousness, I believe King Song made a smart move here (strategically speaking) by only making the S18 only 20p3s. Keep in mind, they added new suspension which is revolutionary for us in the EUC world. It would be wise for the company not to stick too many batteries in this new unproven product when we all know batteries are not on the cheap thus making its debut at $2300-$2500. If this k18 proves to be a hit (which i think it will be) King Song can always come back and refine/upgrade this new product to appease the the rest of us. I really like this wheel

  13. No - in your link the cell was discharged continously with 15A down to 2.5V! Down to 3V it delivered still 3Ah with this 15A. Why? It for sure will deliver 20A - just with less capacity available and only as peak current. And some battery temp monitoring should be established if the design allows this too long. But as peak burden it's no "problem". But yes - it seems to be targeted more for "city riders" than "mountain climbers". Depending on driving style some higher current cells (40T) could have been a better choice... We'll see how the wheel will perform. T

  15. its quite simple.. msx has a larger tire, it will always be a smoother ride and better for off road and absorbing imperfections.. nikola is a smaller wheel, it will have more torque and off the line speed/faster braking and be more nimble.. but the smaller tire will be less capable of dealing with imperfections. the ride of the two is actually very similar once you are actually moving as in on a smooth road they both behave quite similarly. now outwardly, the msx has a good handle to lift, the nikola has a horrible handle to lift, the msx has a useless trolley handle that barely functions, the

  16. Just to follow up on a recent post I made, stating that my helmet collecting is getting out of control, here is the proof (maybe I need some sort of counselling for the issue!!!) This is a New photo I took today including the Newly acquired Bell Super DH and the "Gorgeous" TSG Pro Carbon Trace Edition (which is definitely my New favorite helmet, but yet to be worn!). The two skate style helmets were only used in the beginning stages and DO NOT get used for EUC use now, as I prefer and have always used Full Faced protection ever since I learned to ride!

  19. I hotdogged the 100v MSX as fast and as far as I could go. I got 25 miles until it wasn't fun anymore. Probably could have gone another 5-8 miles if I babied it. Big difference from the 58-62 miles I got going 20 mph. Stay safe out there!

  20. Agree, add one more Pness to this wheel and I think a lot of people will be all over it, pun intended . If it adds 3-4 lbs (give or take) to the total weight, so be it, (battery and modified of body) this would be my dream wheel.

  23. I think you don't have to worry. KS never puts internal testing firmware into production wheels. Your wheel will have 1.07, I think Jack was talking about some "beta testers" that intentionally took part in new firmware testing program and didn't meant that some new users will take the role of beta testers. So don't be afraid

  24. Not a huge deal but it would be nice if it was easier. I assume it's the same for all WearOS devices. May be an easier way, but I navigate to settings and select power off. So, one swipe down, tap settings > system > power off. So 5 or 6 interactions. Holding the power button just reboots the device.

  25. When I first saw it, I thought it looks strange and needlessly complicated compared to Inmotion's solution. But I can appreciate that they suspended the entire wheel (sans motor+tire), which looks damn cool if you think about it! Now I'm a fan of the crazy looks.

  26. I think @Jack King Songis talking about 20A peak current. You are talking about max. continuous discharge current. 43.65A x 72V = 3142 Watt continuous discharge current Maybe I'm already confused by too many numbers myself, but now I wonder when I ever needed 3142 w continuous discharge current on my 16X? Where is my mistake, I usually wonder why I am so sceptical? At least as far as 3p is concerned, the low capacity/range is still bad, of course. Come on King Song, at least 7.5A charge current. That's my last offer!

  28. For several years I have worked as a test driver for a large company here in Finland that manufactures tires. So I have collected a lot of data on how the air pressure affects the tire durability. Our electric unicycles are no exception, we can actually affect how fast the tire is worn-out. I have traveled 3000+ km with my Schwalbe Mad Mike tire before I had to replace it with a new one. To make it easier to check the pressure, I have modified a bicycle pump to fit the valve size of my EUC. Products used for the project: - The Z Shock pump - Euro Style Clip-on Connector - Gorilla Glu

  29. WHOA, locked knees? Hell no, never ever ever. I musta learned that as a kid skating or something, as i NEVER lock my knees (even just standing in place) and never think about it. Man, helmets, no helmets, please dont EVER lock those knees on an euc. Small bumps, big bumps, you better let muscle and not bone, handle it. Pre-bent knees (even a little) dont bend backwards easily by accident. Whats it gna be? Knees, hips or ankles? You gotta pick one or the ground picks it for you.

  30. I would say go for the msx if you ride more off road. If not go for the Nikola. Of all my wheels I have the most time on the msx. It is fairly nimble, climbs well and is fast (but not to accelerate). That’s about all the positive things I can say about the msx. The negative, it’s ugly, not comfortable, horrible trolley handle and looks cheap. I am new to the Nikola but, I love it! It’s fast, responsive, looks good, comfortable, has speakers and a better trolley handle. If you’re not gonna do a lot of off-road get the Nikola. Just my two cents 😏

  31. 18L is still a fine wheel. In fact, if I found a used 18L with good price near by, I would buy it to ride while waiting for S18 and V11 hit markets. (and sell if after afterwards).

  32. Yeah, I don't believe in nagging people to wear gear. We all make choices and are adults. I do to want share safety gear content that doesn't point the finger at anyone in particular but can maybe motivate people improve their safety. I'm far from perfect, but aim to get better.

  35. Anyone who says these things aren't dangerous - I was hit by a courier van when I was going around 40kms an hour. On @The Fat Unicyclist wheel, no less. Three months on crutches. Then reconstruction surgery, and another three months recovering. I still limp today, on a cold morning. You are skiing. On pavement. Around cars. It IS absolutely dangerous. I mean, I love it. I love riding, as much as I loved surfing when I first learned to surf. Its that same feeling - I have to go for a ride every day. Like when I was 14 and used to sneak out on weekends to go surfing.

  38. Damn really Kingsong isnt doing their work properly here.. What are they beta testing the new firmware with the new batch users? These are customers that paid for huge load of money for that wheel. We deserve better service or at least some proper description before updating the firmware. One of the staff wouldnt even answer my questions related to this firmware.

  39. GPS speed and wheel speed don't tend to coincide precisely (it would be even more dramatic if you had a KS!) But a 3 km/h difference isn't that much...were you going in a straight line? About the 45 km/h alarm, it's always based on the speed reported by the wheel, so GPS shouldn't affect that. If you set it to 45 km/h, it will beep when the wheel speed is 45 km/h, so it's always consistent. For testing purposes, you can always lower the speed to 30 km/h to make sure it works The toggle function wasn't implemented because the regulatory compliance option is somewhat of a last/emer

  41. The peak visor is weird but it is handy for the mirror. It will be more useful when I am back east where we actually have trees. The XL was fine. I am going to drop the tire pressure a little. I was on desert dirt tracks for about three miles and the wheel gave me a good workout. It got my pulse rate up. I needed to use more toe pressure on the XL. Going uphill on the 16S I could just lean as far forward as needed. With the XL I had to exert toe pressure. Next time out I am going to position my feet further forward on the pedals. BTW, I had the same size pedals on the 16S.

  44. Be carefull with stall current tests - the cables and mosfets are absolutely not designed for such burdens! And from what i read gw wheels have no current limitations... "Additional lowspeed acceleration (bigger motors) are not desirable in future EUC's of this size. We did not perform tests to evaluate heat dissipation of the wheel. MSP is likely to maintain speed on a grade at lower temperatures than MSX, due to its design which includes the stronger motor (same force with less current), and upgraded internal cooling.

If i go shop rest etc. I "alt tab" eucworld and let watch save batery own way after i resume ride i push ticwatch pro programable buton to reopen eucworld. I use google pay for my watch. 3-4 hours continuous use no problem at all dont forget i use watch for CURENT alarm to warn me im close to high power consumption 29A this mean watch vibrate often . I use watch like watch ,pay, control BT speaker and Horn.

  48. Great discussion about batteries - I’ve certainly learned a few things! It appears to me that 3p in the KS-S18, isn’t inherently unsafe (the V8 is only 2p), but will likely result in Kingsong employing a firmware with less aggressive acceleration curves to account for the reduced ability of the battery packs to handle current spikes. We should probably also expect speed throttling to start at 50% battery or earlier. This would be inline with Kuji’s video riding the beeps and his comment about the S18 being a beginner/intermediate wheel and not to expect 16X performance. Performa

  49. There is an option for Customers worried that the 1110Wh pack won't cut it for their needs, King Song have an external 780Wh power-bank, raising the total potential capacity to 1,890Wh, which we have in stock. This would require fitting into an back-pack & having a tether wire trickle charging the main pack @ 3A/84v (there's an output voltage toggle); while it's not perfect, it should be a workable solution. The price for this hardware is $650.
