    1 - Rockwheel GT16 is great for off road even in very rocky paths. But as the shell is closer to the ground compared to a 18 inch wheel it may break (just under the pedals). It is already my third shell on the same GT16 (more than 4000 km and a lot of off road with it). This kind of trail is just perfect. In some rare occasions (very steep rocky trails for example) the GT16 will do better than an 18 inch wheel. Now, I prefer to use my Gotway MSX because it is more comfortable and still very manoeuvrable. And I am fed up with changing my GT16 shell ;-) 2 - Like with other wheels you may be cautious not to use it under heavy rains. Anyway the water can't come in from below neither from the front. The only way it could go inside is from the top. Look at one of my videos to see where. I opened it many times. 3 - It is easy to open and repair. I made a full tutrorial for that purpose. In french but easy to understand (replacement of tyre, shell, trolley, etc..) 4 - the tyre that comes with the wheel is fine. At first it was a Chao Yang, now it is shipped with a CST tyre. Both work well. I changed mine after approximately 4000 km.

    My weight: 90 kg. Tyre pressure here: 2,5 bar (36,25 PSI). 2,4 may be OK as well. I think 2,4~2,5 bar is OK for me. In the morning I tried 2,8 bar (40,6 PSI) and it was not comfortable on bumps and off roads. I haven't done a range test yet but the first day I did 40km then added 390 wh. On my first rides the average consumption was around 18~19wh/km. Riding fast and uphill sometimes.
  3. No problem with this seller for me. I received my MTen3 after two weeks only (in France). No tax as it goes through the Netherlands first.

    Deep experience with GT16

    I use it as a second charger sometimes. No problem, charging time is twice quicker. Though this charger is supposed to be 3A max, I never got more than 2,5A on an empty battery. I get 2,69A max with the original Rockwheel charger.

    DarknessBot - iOS App

    To make the new version work on my iPhone I had to delete the app and re install the new version. I already purchased the two options (graph and video recorder)in the other version, but the app asks me to pay again... Can you fix this please.

    So how safe is this wheel now?

    The russian site is not really up to date as they show a photo of Rockwheel GT 16 v1 (different pads) so I guess they had problems with v1 units. Nothing new. v2 don't seem to have these problems.
  8. Gotway MCM2s: 336 km (my first wheel) Gotway MSuper 2: 7000 km Rockwheel GT 16: 2200 km Within 2 years.

    Strange oscillation in GT16

    @Blackmagicman Is your GT 16 a V1 or V2? (V2 has different pads and very loud speed alarms). I think the firmware is different as well.

    In France this wheel has become quite popular recently and among owners no one is complaining. 14 users on the french forum and very good feedback: https://www.espritroue.fr/engin?modeleId=232 My own long feedback there (in french sorry): https://www.espritroue.fr/topic/3013-rockwheel-gt16-retour-dexpérience/

    Strange oscillation in GT16

    I think there is a problem with your mother board. It shouldn't behave like this. With my GT 16 I empty the battery almost every day and have only a full tilt back when the battery is empty. Before that I get the continuous beeps then the all flashing leds. I posted this on the french forum to show that speed can be quite high even with a low percentage of battery left. Around 2hour trip and 47km distance.

    Battery status on rockwheel app

    Flashing red is not normal as it should be solid red or green. May be contact your seller and ask for a new charger.

    Darknessbot works fine (iOS only). It displays all kinds of information.

    Noise when I brake on Rockwheel GT16 v2

    Mine was built in June, so it is the last version (final version)

    Noise when I brake on Rockwheel GT16 v2

    Yes, same for me, only on hard braking, braking downhill or very steep slope (from 16% when I climb at 2~3 km/h).
