  1. I opened up the V11 pedals. One reason being the worry laid on me by the more-common-than-we'd-like pedal issues of the V10(F). Click on the images for full resolution. Under the grip tape are 7 screws. They are short and were not very tight (after 550km), so the top plate is a likely source of the slight creaking I heard a few times. The honeycomb structure is a family trait. The structure awakens trust by being many times taller than on the V10 pedals. The pedal top plate is made of a 2mm thick aluminium sheet.

  4. The wheel he is talking/hinting about is the V12. Details are few. But this is what has come out: Old news: 16", non-suspension, AI, battery swap possibility (investigation), was due to release in October (but see below) New news: Fastest to date IM wheel, option for external battery, new release window set early/spring 2021

  5. I had put down my pre-order for the V11 as soon as it was available on my reseller's website. It would have been a no-brainer upgrade from the V10f. Larger tires, more battery, bright headlamps and 50% more battery, with same awesome Inmotion quality fit and finish. That is until the Sherman arrived and information started slowly coming in. I weighed my options, my riding style, my needs and came to the conclusion the Veteran Sherman was a better fit. Either of these two wheels would have been perfect as the next wheel purchase but since I already have the V10f, the Sherman was the better choi

  6. I just got an 18L and I knew it was going to beep... And I thought I could put up with it.. but its so annoying!!! I wish I had gone for a different brand. This thing beeps 9 times just for being turned on. And one beep would still be too many. SO, the sound that is the emergency warning that the wheel may be overpowered and about to send you to the hospital - is the same sound you get when you turn it on and connect to the app. Its like having your smoke alarm go off to tell you that the kettle is boiled. I turned it on at work today and someone though the security alarm ha

  9. The 16X is known for that same problem with pedal dipping when accelerating fast. The S18 has the same motor, just with less battery. I’m not surprised. Just ride at decent speeds and aggressiveness and it should be fine. Otherwise this review sums up my impressions pretty well. Looks really good in pictures and the suspension should be great on paper but the execution is lacking. And the street tire ruins it from being a dedicated off-roader. A niche wheel that has great promise to develop into an awesome wheel in the next generation. I really like the direction they are taking it w

  10. We got two cutouts. 1 an MSP rider and second an MSS rider. Not suprised they cutout. In normal daily situation how many people actually want to get from 0-40kph immediately? The motor has been know for cutting out if accelaritng immediately top speed. Its not an S18 thing. Its a Kingsong motor problem.

  11. Good point! Isn’t it frightening how fast you get used to the high torque wheels and the insane acceleration they provide. It’s almost impossible to ride the older or less powerful wheels safely anymore. Just recently I had a face plant on my old E+ when I took it out for a nostalgic ride. 10 meters into a mildly steep hill out of the blue it cut off underneath me with an almost full battery and bloodstains on the pavement. I over-leaned the poor thing so viciously it had no chance. Riding the KS S18 being used to the MSS may feel like riding the Ninebot One E+ after months on the Z10 with s

  14. I have not heard of a V11 without suspension. I know their next wheel will be without suspension but it’s not a V11. It’ll be a 16” wheel. Makes no sense to make a premium wheel without suspension anymore. The answer to your question is absolutely not, I would not buy another wheel without suspension.

  15. So is no one going to mention that the V11F was brought up in TheBlackCobra's live interview with Liam? It sounds like it will be their next release, out early next year.

  16. Also unfortunately, I lost my phone in the mountains the day before my fall. I can say that we were in the early stages of our group ride and that I was fully charged when we started. If I were to guess I'd say I was at no less than 70%. Let me say that my fall was 100% user error. There's a number of events that lead to it, but still... all my fault.

  18. It's painful to watch. You can see at the 2:05 mark that the guy is installing lock washers over the bearings. You can also see the large washer on the outer link pivot. As he moves the assembly around with just the linkage installed, you can see how tight it is. Definitely different than what the pre-production models looked like. I would guess they had a different group of people (poorly) figure out assembly vs. those who designed and built the pre-production models.

  19. Don't know if my S18 is the second batch, but the suspension out of the box is flawlessly. It's excellent! I don't see any need on doing anything on the bolts etc. Congrats @Jack King Song !

  20. I got my KS16X yesterday and only put in about 15-20 min before I called it a day, drenched with sweat wondering what I got myself into. The farthest I could make it was maybe 5-10 feet. No matter how many videos you watch of beginners and posts you read, really have to try this out for yourself before you fully appreciate the difficulty. This morning I went back out for more embarrassment and was amazed to be able to ride to the end of our street, half a mile in one stretch. I tried to turn but had to bail.The biggest thing that clicked after reading some of this thread was to let the wh

  21. Hi Segway experts. So... my wife had an accident 18 months ago and is now a paraplegic. She is 44 and was very adventurous and active before here accident. It’s almost impossible to use a wheelchair around our neighbourhood. We are also active outdoors people and a wheelchair is very limited in the Aussie bush So I am interested in trying to hack a Segway to move a wheelchair outside. I have this idea of trying to make an adaptor that would allow a Segway Mini Pro (an perhaps in future a larger offroad unit) into a power unit that attached to the front of her wheelchair. Woul

  26. @rdogus You said, you are learning for 5 days, so take your time :-) - mounting can take some time until you feel comfortable. Just keep practicing and regarding @mrelwood's video, especially practice one-foot control, (see video beginning at 6:20). And have in mind that you have two different ways to get on your wheel: a) one foot on the first plate, hop on with second foot while the wheel isn't moving and start going forward directly after - needs a bit more body balance right from the start or b) start rolling forward slowly with one foot and then step on the second paddle, like riding a sk

  31. I'd agree entirely with this sentiment if buying new. The V8F strikes me as the perfect wheel for your uses. If you're looking to buy used then the V8 can often be had for a bargain and would be my recommendation.

  33. Nice! From over a year on the Z10, that wheel is what taught me to go heels wide (toes can still be in), because my leg would keep catching the Z body earlier than on a regular width EUC, since the wider 4" tire has more distance to travel when the wheel body dips. Wide heels help me clear the EUC body and achieve a deeper dip/lean. The way I ride, I lift one heel at a time, and this, among other things, really alleviates foot pain, because it teaches you to ride only on the balls (accel / maneuver / balance) and heels (body weight leverage, anti-high speed wobble, overall stability)

  34. FYI, I removed the blocks and the difference was night and day on shock suspension performance! The shocks have a much improved response time after the removal. I had about 200 miles on the wheel before, and probably another 50 after the change. I need to adjust my pressures a bit more since the removal, but that was expected.

  35. I have two, and kept one with either firmware for a while to test this, and to me it was a no-brainer. The improved power delivery makes the wheel so much more fun and confidence inspiring, while still preventing the cable insulation melting I was starting to experience (a small portion of the shell also melted!). Travelling at 45-50mph speeds doesn't feel so safe when you have pedal dipping over road imperfections and changes in gradient, especially when you know you're literally melting the wheel while asking it to do so. I feel the new FW is actually much safer at higher speeds, judged by t

  37. I'm not 100% sure this test proves the Sherman could have done in without the stop, but anyways, the point is clear: it can do Overheat Hill (let's assume the best) but that's not what you're supposed to do with it And the second batch got a lot of improvements, which is nice

  39. Now today I just wanted to enjoy myself and well have the fun to see my team leaders rea tion once I showed my new sexy wheel... He doesn't understand wheels but one thing he do understand is the major difference between my first wheel the V8 and this new V11. I just don't know why but it is very hard to get people to invest the time in learning how to ride. So I went home and bought lunch with me on the way. Then I decided it was time to shop a new xbox controller....sold out almost all places. But I manage to find one in a show 10km away...in a place I have only been to once

  40. There isn’t a single “proper method” that everyone should aim for. Our physiques, sizes and wheel models vary enough to warrant a range of ideal techniques. There are a few common aspects though. - Loose or no grip against the shell. Squeezing or hugging the shell limits your movement, prevents tilt-turning altogether, makes your feet tired quickly, causes instability on banked or grooves surfaces, and makes speed wobbles worse. (Edit: And also locks your safety suspension, your knees, in place!) - Precise front to back foot positioning. it’s common for new riders to stand too far ba

  44. So after a week of testing different methods of fast charging my Z10, here are my observations: The BMS has thermal cutoff, letting it draw a lot of power (W) and it will get too hot and will cutoff charging At 500W/8.5A I can charge for about 30 minutes before cutoff At 470W/8A ~1 hour before cutoff At 440W/7.5A it will fully charge and balance the pack A pack that was used to ride ~30 miles can be charged until CV phase in less than 2 hours Since I usually have several hours between long rides, I've decided to stick with 440W/7.5A charging.

  46. I'd like to share some beginner-to-beginner thoughts on what I found useful to take big steps forward in my learning process. Skip indoors as soon as possible: The first night I received the wheel it was raining outside so I moved my first steps inside my living room. I spent 2+ hours just trying to find balance hopping from object to object but falling quite often and getting discouraged. I later found out, comparing indoors with outdoors, that all the objects that you can use to help keep your balance are also obstacles to your trial and error muscle-memory learning. There's no r

  47. My god, learning to mount was just about the hardest thing I've done. Everything else including riding backwards and jumping, took just a few minutes, but mounting...that transition...I still cannot do gracefully nor easily. It's a lurch, then a desperate few seconds to gain enough speed to not fall. Kinda like an overladened Boeing B-29 taking off; everything is overheating and one's airspeed still isn't high enough.
