    This is mainly still from the lingering effects of the month long Chinese New Year; I have one order from Mid-December which has just left Hong Kong. We had relied on consulting the Delphic Oracle prior to putting in factory orders; to my surprise she's not infallible, her consultancy rates are Olympian, so I might start using maths instead to try to predict demand. Current Stock: Solowheel G3/Inmotion V8, plentiful. Recently discounted the Wheel to $899 including the protective cover as a bonus King Song 14S, medium. Expected to sell out within the next 30-45 days King Song 18S, low. Half-a-dozen of the 840Wh types remaining in stock Gotway MTen3, low. Will be sold-out by the beginning on May Gotway ACMv2, medium. Expected there would be a gravitation towards this model over the Tesla, since you're get quite a bit more bang for your buck In Transit, Making Landfall 1st of May: King Song 16S, low. Predicted that the V10/V10F would make the 16S a hard sell, surprisingly 16S is still shifting well King Song 14D, high. Ordered a lot of these as our 'entry' level Wheel IPS i5, high. These will be available in a couple new color options, updated firmware with higher 23kph top speed Production Completed, Expected Arrival 2-3rd Week of May: Gotway Monster 100V, low. When I placed the order there were only 5x Boards available to buy Gotway MSuper 2000W Red/Blue, Medium. New(ish) MSupers in Red & Blue shells, 1600Wh capacity only. Gotway ACMv2 Blue, Medium. Special 'Marty' edition of the ACM in blue, 1600Wh capacity only. Gotway MCM5, low. Initial test run to get Customer feedback of the new MCM5, highest 650Wh capacity only. Inmotion V10F, none. All of these initial 30x pcs have been presold. In the planning/preparation stage: Gotway MSuper X, medium. Deposit placed for the initial production run Inmotion V10/V10F, medium-high. Large order placed in the expectation of the seasonal demand surge that's approaching MTen3, medium. Top up supply going into the spring-summer months. Ninebot Z, unknown. Might be shipping out during the 1st week of June. We're trying to secure enough for the preorders King Song 18L, unknown. Could be shipping out within a week either way of the Z Uncertain Future: Gotway Tesla. Will there continue to be demand for this model when there's the ACMv2 & V10F? I could be wrong, but the Tesla now sits awkwardly in the center between these 16" models. If you want the maximum power/range the ACMv2 gives you the highest spec on a 16;, if it's the aesthetics & reliability that are the most important, then the V10F will probably be higher demand. KS16S. When the V10/V10F production gets under full-steam, I sense that the KS16S is going suffer most, I could be wrong, but this is my sense. Other Product: on the Scooter front, we're going to be bringing in the new Dualtron 3 series & Speedway Vs. Also have a pretty cool 15kg/35lb, 20mph folding eBike coming online in the next month.

    Inmotion is loaning me a V10F (thanks @Jeffrey Scott Will) to test & review. I like to think that I'm thorough and objective. If you have specific questions I may be able to address them in my video review. Ask away, but please be reasonable. Don't ask me what the torque response is like when climbing a 21-1/2 degree incline Your questions can help to keep me from forgetting anything important or useful to you. Unfortunately, as it stands right now I'm only going to have the wheel for one day. So no comparitive range test or other thorough tests will be possible

    We are seeing about possibly letting you have it for longer, but I need to check a few things.

    Some good news [finally] to share, first from King Song: "Hi Jason, for Android APP, pls ask you customers to do an upgrade, then he will be able to set the speed. For IOS APP, we have submited to APPLE APP system yesterday, as soon as get approve, will be available to download." DarknessBot will soon also support KS Alarm/Speed settings I've also be in contact with Illya, the brains behind Darknessbot, about sponsoring enhanced support for setting alarms & tilt-back speed on the KS Wheels. There should be more news about this follow in the next couple days.

    I was away in Devon this weekend, yet for some reason it didn't occur to me to bring my wheel. I guess I figured I'd only be walking around rainy woodland. Missed out on wheeling around this! There were some guys doing tricks on rocks on BMXs to the left there. They had the right idea! I'm an absolute idiot. I felt so gutted. Who says the UK doesn't have nice places to ride...

    Working on this. At the February meeting, the R&D department were reluctant to offer larger pedals citing the mold cost. In light of the V10F pedal layout, I believe that Ninebot are going to have to respond in kind. An option that was discussed was to provide a C&Cd pedal as an optional upgrade. Motor Wire Upgrades: there's some good news to report on the motor wires, received this communication yesterday, "The wire diameter on the One Z is thickened, & the plug-in is also used for the terminals fixed by the screws, & the motor phase wire is replaced by the high temperature resistant material." My contact has given mid-May as the start of a limited initial production run. Another month to ship out to the US, so shipping to Customer ought to be mid-June, if everything goes to plan... Who is your source for this? The latest update I received directly from King Song, yesterday, is that they assembled a new prototype, but production is certainly not going ahead at full steam as of this moment. "18L we have assembled a new sample today, i will show you later. Still need some slight changes, Massive production can expect to start end of this month." "kick to unfold pedals" what does this mean? "side lights with programmable color and well visible from sides and front of the wheel " All three mfgs support this "Option for 2 chargers / fast charging" is this completely pointless? A ChargeDoctor has offered dual-input support for well over a year, there are many 4-5A fast-chargers on the market. Not completely sure when this change was made, but it could have been a few months back. There's always an element that something new might turn out to be a damp-squid. Those who use an Electric Unicycle are usually inclined to take on a higher calculated risk than the general population; you're going to have to review the available evidence & form your own judgement on what's best for you.

    my first "proper" long ride after i got my control board im glad to be back on a wheel. here is a few photos from my ride: it was nice and sunny. so i went for a good 40km ride so. this hill is a little special. i had a dream about 2 days before i got my new control board. i didnt have any dreams in weeks. what did i see in that dream? me burning my new control board on this hill.. yes this exact hill!. i never seen it before i drove in the forest today what a weird dream is my subconsious trying to warn me? probably

    That's probably because most of our NYC riders barely ever read, let alone post on the EUC forums here, minus a few diehards (*cough* @Mrd777 *cough* #welcomeback @Cloud). We have a bigger presence on the various FB EUC groups plus a group FB chat (all the NYC group ride invites / polls get bigger responses over there). So in terms of the NYC V10F demo, I'd say it was rather the opposite: a big hit! (someday we'll coax out all 70+ registered NYC tri-state area EUC forum users! ) The consensus impressions / takeaways were: the V10F is big, bigger in person compared to the promos the V10F feels like an 18" in a 16" wheel the V10F is comfortable, from those big fat pedals(!) to the cushy side pads, to the planted feeling of a 2.5" wide tire Outside of that, IMHO I don't think you can unleash ALL the idiosyncrasies of a wheel unless you really ride for at least 40-50 miles.

    I am a gotway ACM rider but tried many wheels other time. Since I arrived in Taiwan for studies, I've had Msuper3 1600Wh, KS14D, ACM16 1600 and a old lady, the KS16B. I currently ride on both kingsong wheels until I receive my new ACM. My first impression on the V10F? Well, once again inmotion released a great finished product (even though the wheels sent are not final products) They manage to create an algorithm even smoother than Gotway, on acceleration, you are just on a cloud. They learnt from the V8 mistake, adding real pads which is way more confortable than a growth of plastic. Confort is excellent, one foot can be done without major pain. Since the pedals are higher than any other models, you feel very tall on this wheel, less chance to rub the pedals while turning. The handle bar is a better idea, I know from experience that the V5's trolley is the most resistant trolley ever made. We used to practice throwing the v5 from one to another, and the handle bar never broke appart while the wheel was spining on the ground because of our fails. Thus, the built-in trolley on the v8 proved not to be very reliable as some people got it stuck after a bad fall. The newly shaped pedals are great however, why did they do the reverse of other manufactures, putting back full rubered grip instead of real griptape? Yet, I believe it was the first company to put real griptape directly out of factory. Hope this point will change on the final version product. They implemented speakers, the sound is loud and acceptable, I won't say they are high quality speakers but they do the job such as kingsong wheels. The headlight is very powerful, I haven't compared it to Kingsong wheels but it seems more powerful. I regret that it is very big, such as the Tesla, given that it uses the same shape. The good point is that it makes the wheel thinner and even more confortable than the Tesla. I haven't tried it for a long time to have a very good overview of its capacities under any condition but it go fast without difficulties, I reached 35kmh easily but didn't go higher, only my skin as protection at that time... Now the feeling... it looks like a Tesla, but the firmware drives it like a Msuper3, if you look for nervosity, you might be disappointed. The wide tire increases stability dispite the taller pedals. I feel more stable on the V10 than on a v8. I hope my sort of review will help you if you are mixed between different coming models. We are still expecting the KS18L to arrive soon for comparison, as much as the Z10 if it is released someday.

    Looks like Green Fashion got their Z (dunno if this is just a demo or they got their actual pre-order stock in):

    Few points to be considered: On April 10th - Ninebot started local Chinese only Pre-Order campaign right at the same time of Inmotion V10/V10F official release date for limited quantities and long time waiting shipment (June). On April 16th - Ninebot started local Chinese only Open Beta testers campaign for limited quantities and requiring full deposit money for the wheels. After more than half year since One Z Series were officially announced on August last year, Ninebot is still struggling with testing their products. All of those efforts they making is still for local Chinese market only. For those familiar with their One P, do you know that they are still available in local Chinese market even though they are known to be problematic and were officially recalled off from Europe and US market? They are NOT discontinued at all. I might be wrong, but I believe that Ninebot is having some sort of reasons with their One Z Series products at the moment. Especially for making it into Overseas market. Hopefully the history of One P doesn't repeat, but I think I'm losing both my expectation and interest of Z10 now. Cheers guys!

    That would be too easy, anyone can extrapolate that . Marty , I want to know that torque response when climbing that hill while riding on left foot only wearing steel toe boots, simultaneously playing a 3/4 size violin and reciting Tolstoy’s “war and peace”. All of that in a rainy overcast weather and ambient temperatures between 60-70 and for a 185lb riser please. Any color clothing or day of the week will do, I am very flexible that way.

    To address the first question, I'm sure Marty will want to give his opinion on this, but this is an area I have a lot of interest mainly because I feel most current flagship wheels to a pretty bad job of this. InMotion's engineers actually started from the ground up with V10 to tackle this exact issue of weight distribution. What exactly did they change or move around? I couldn't tell you, but they had a lot to consider to make this all work in this form factor. In practice, after having spent a few weeks with the very V10F Marty is about to get, I'll say YES it feels heavy. There is no getting around that if you want range. But what makes it more manageable compared to other heavy beasts is the tall and slim body. This makes a HUGE difference not only in just managing the wheel at a stand still with one leg, but also mounting/dismounting and general control and stability while riding. Like I said, you can definitely feels the weight, but how do you manage potential top heavy sensation? Well, I don't feel it seems top heavy, just heavy in general. I think its about as well balanced as possible. If you feel that it feel too difficult to bring upright after banking into a turn it means one thing: your tire pressure is too low! Give it a bit more air - this will naturally coax the wheel upright and exit the turn more naturally. It's a more sensitive issue in general with heavy wheels IMO. Just tweak this to your weight and height and you'll be very happy with V10F. As for your second point, I would actually argue that they have gone bigger and heavier only if you compare it to V8. The community demands (very loudly) more range, and InMotion engineers have given it to us. And they've done it in a smaller(where it matters: width) package without making and critical sacrifices compared to the competition. This is so much more comfortable and nimble/maneuverable compared to anything else IMO.

    Just got my TSG Pass helmet. I wasn't sure a small would fit, but I'm surprised it fits snug. Happy with it so far and doesn't feel hot.
