  1. I am just waiting on either or BOTH companies to revise what you have suggested. Along the way, perhaps some refinement of sharp edges, unfinished corners, plastic compositions, bms systems and other faster/fitment things. I think the s18 is superior in design but fell WAY short in carrying that idea from paper. Its close enough, they could just finish doing what the design had intended. Maybe by then, we will see a solution to battery sag and specs as well. Same with the v11. If they just refine and fix the glaring issues, it could also be a great wheel. However, my negativity is from the fac

  5. In the age of internet, if we don't have these safeguards in place, the entire site would be counter-intuitive. I could only imagine how many bots have knocked on these doors over the last couple years. Its a pain in the ass, but the alternative is catastrophic. The forum makes ZERO revenue thru the 'for sale' ads btw. Assisting in the sales of unicycles isnt really the primary interest for this group.

  6. This may come as a surprise out of my mouth, but if I had only tried the S18 and not the V11, the S18 would be my choice of wheel as well. Despite all it’s issues. I sure would’ve made an art out of modifying it, but I’d probably be preaching all around about the pros of the suspension and other it’s features. But since the S18 is not alone in the world of suspension EUCs, it gets compared to the V11. And that’s when the S18 falls, hard. V11 has troublesome issues with the bearings and suspension wear. That’s it. Everything else is top notch, and compares favorably to any other EUC

  8. So another 2cent. I don't really understand why people keep comparing the S18 vs V11 as they are very different wheels built for 2 different main use. Both wheels will have riders biased to one or the other. And then there are those that don't value suspension that will tell you neither is any good or worth the money. As my signatur says I ride a V11. I have not tested a S18. But how you can have a motor that the battery cannot keep up with on spike demands is not great and I doubt there will be a fix for that on the S18. But that said let's move on. I can share the goo

  9. My V11 is the 3rd batch as well I believe and (knocking on wood as I type) I haven't had any issues with the bearings so far. I've got just over 1300km's on the Odo and I have been caught in the rain a few times during my work commutes. Fingers crossed this good fortune with the bearings continue. Now to the OP. I know you've already ordered the V11 but I think you've made a good choice. It's a great all-rounder and when I chose it, I wanted a wheel I could grow with. At that time, I only had the real bare bones basics of riding an EUC. The V11 caters for a wide variety of riders f

  11. Interesting topic. Not that I have these wheel but I been soo close to get one. I been tempted with both wheels. After looking every detail I could find I feel V11 would win almost everything, expect the look of the wheel. That being said I can totally understand those who buy S18. Here be my silly thougts, totally feel free to disagree, just wanted to join the chatter anyway.. S18: I feel like S18 is like that old Dodge Viper. Looks great but you do not have roof, rollcage turns out to be _not_a_roll_cage and there are no side windows. No airbags nor ,ABS or anything safety rel

  12. @ShanesPlanetI said way back when Kingsong subbed out their Fox shock for a knockoff that the suspension is going to be weak. There's no way a tiny mono shock can take a beating like that one does without being a quality part. And you bought one anyway. Who'd have thought InMotion was going to have bearing issues though? Runs counter to the company name...

  13. I would agree if the S18 “ergonomics” would fit more riders, and if both wheels were executed perfectly. But they aren’t. For many riders though, having either suspension design is a must in order to fight riding fatigue or one from a long list of bodily issues that benefit from absorbing vibration and sharp shocks you simply can’t avoid in a non-suspension EUC. For those (us) riders, either suspension wheel is better than non-suspension, for any riding situation. And while the V11 shock doesn’t have a direct rebound dampening adjustment, increasing the negative chamber pressure (an

  14. I really don't think the S18 and V11 are really competitors to the same degree a lot of folks make them out to be. Or at least to the degree that most folks make them out to be. Yes they both have suspension, both can ride off and on road decent enough. but they clearly have different specialties. They both borrow shock technology from MTBs. S18 uses rear shock MTB linkage design V11 uses fork shock design. In my opinion: If your main goal is off-road bliss, plan to look for super aggressive terrain. I would go with the S18 If your main goal is sup

  16. Good you're enjoying your Tesla. Its a very nice wheel indeed & I've had no issues with mine so far. Since you the tire, it certainly wouldn't hurt to slap it on & give it a twirl. Personally I found there's a significant difference in the handling of a 2.125" vs 2.5" tire. Also the knobby will be louder which itself a nice safety feature. I've seen the mini Clark pads & they look nice. I'm planning to diy my own pads for the Tesla (& a coupla others) using yoga blocks. You might wanna give it a shot as yoga blocks are cheap enough to write off even if it don't work. The 9

  17. Hey Retro and Scottie! The Tesla has been pretty good so far as my lighter commuter wheel. In many cases, it was nice coming from the trainer Ninebot One E+ because there are numerous upgrades, the easiest to reference are the increased speed and range (without adding too much weight to carry around), but funny enough, despite the Tesla being known as having a lower pedal clearance than most wheels, it’s actually higher than on the Ninebot, so I’m getting far less pedal scrapes on my turns than before. It is taking a while to get used to the box like width of the Tesla between the cal

  18. I found the version with fewer and shorter studs worked surprisingly well, and have been more durable than I expected. Of course, I swapped them out for studded grip tape cuz it’s a fun experiment. Heading back to the snow so will see how they work, but they’re supposed to “shed” the snow. Spring’s a comin’, so is mud. I’m hoping this saves me from buying hex pedals, the boot studs were 10USD a set, the studded grip tape 35. Fish pedals are 80 and hex pedals for the 16X (probably superior in all respects) are over 200! Think of all the unneeded flashlights I could buy with the difference.

Studded pedal alternative - Not my idea, saw it on another post, but I followed up and purchased the following: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000GUEAUK/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 size small - they fit on all my pedals, with not much give I do Not consider these a performance solution. I expect they will wear out very quickly. Before getting these, I had been riding in snow, and while dismounting, mounting - snow accumulated on the pedals. It was very cold out, and that snow froze to ice. On a mount, I just slipped right off the pedals in

  21. They sure do. The amounts just aren’t even in the same ballpark. The difference to a non-suspension wheel is large. Have you by any chance tried a V11 that’s set for your riding weight? Are you referring to hsiang’s high speed crash into a steel bumper of a truck, or have you seen a number of V11’s breaking up from crashes? Mine has crashed and tumbled a good bit, and all they did was scratch the pedals and their brackets. The V11 takes crashes way better than the MSX for example. To be fair, the S18 doesn’t seem to easily obliterate from crashes either, if we disregard t

  22. Only 2kg lighter. And I couldn’t turn nearly as tightly on the S18 as I can with the V11. But the big issue in the S18 is the sticking suspension that KS still hasn’t been able to fix. Even the units that have been torn down and serviced to make the suspension more sensitive, either by the user or an EUC shop, have all been extremely stiff and the suspension only works in large bumps. Add the sagging 3p battery, open structure for dust and debris to enter the headlight, falling panels with easily breaking attachment tabs, separating fender and sidepads, narrow pedals with a one tim

  26. Tuck and roll is always good advice, but quick reactions are sometimes just what happens. I wasn't going very fast, I just got a foot board caught on a curb at a low speed, and my upper arm broke right near the shoulder socket when I put my hands out to catch myself, as noted in the video you linked. I don't have a lot of people around me as far as family and friends go, and with that being said, I think it's a good idea to consider how fragile we really are, and the infrastructure and riding conditions of where I live and work and reevaluate my decision to purchase this thing.

  29. @Scottie888 Ya you are probably right I should have just ordered the Duro I also have a grinder...but pls let me know how it goes. You aren't wrong about the Pirelli it is a street tire for sure but it also doesn't have the 1-2cm slick right down the middle and I know for sure it fits. There are a few other enduro type tires that are confirmed to fit as well but I can't seem to find any that are available at in Canada atm so I settled for the Pirelli. I only mentioned the Sai Pads because they are cheaper than the clark pads and it looks like you can close your pedals with them on. Correct me

  30. Can't speak as an expert for the medical community but IMO (thru extensive experience I might add), shoulder hangs are excellent for rehabilitation & even better for overall shoulder health. Just grab a horizontal bar, spread you arms at least shoulder width, relax arms/shoulders & hang. For as long as you can. Warning - it might be painful for some initially esp those with pertinent injuries. In that case, use a box or similar & do leg assisted hangs. Give it as much weight & hang as long as it feels safe & bearable. Work your way up to full body weight & increasi

  31. Have anything for a shoulder(EUC injury)? As to sciatica, I started midfoot strike or toe strike running. Regular running shoes were part of the problem, I now wear Vivo Barefoot shoes exclusively (Ultra 3). They take a little getting used to, but I only have sciatica now when I have to wear "grown-up" shoes.

  32. I'll look into that actually. There are a few EPP helmets on the market (none that I know of in the motorcycle industry, only bicycle) but I don't know enough about the differences. From what I remember, I think you need more EPP to get the same effectiveness as EPS, but again, that could be wrong. I'll get with my reps to see if they can enlighten me on the differences a little bit. EMTB manufacturers are trying to get into the dealership and a few of our distributors have already picked up some MTB gear, so hopefully they can get me some info. I do like the idea of a multi-impact helmet

  33. There's FAR too many variables to consider for an OEM to even come close to being able to accurately try to ascertain how effective it'll be after a particular length of time (what type of climate, amount of usage, has it ever gotten wet, has it been exposed to extreme temperature changes, what kind of impacts [if any] has it taken during it's lifetime, etc). All of that needs to be considered to make that kind of blanket statement from an OEM. It just isn't feasible. Best thing to do if you take a spill with helmet contact is to check the interior portion of the EPS liner for any indent

Some impressions, as well as some pictures from the other threads (credit @fbhb for the clearer ones) Positive: fairly light (around 1Kg) and silent, even at 100% fan. The only charger I've see that adapts fan speed, which is nice. Negative: Feels flimsy

  43. EUC World tour & log synchronization service is started every 15 minutes, but it just starts, checks if there is anything to synchronize and then quits. No measurable drain on battery. This means that EUC World is quit in unusual way, so speech service component isn't stopped but killed or is crashing. This causes Android to restart it and this is why it starts to speak again. Normally, this shouldn't happen when you quit the app by tapping back / using "back" gesture then confirming quit dialog.
