  1. Just to give you some ideas of the safety margin you get... 218 lbs is 98kgs... My accident was at 20 kph on a small slope.... not even a slope in fact! Down you weight and left safety speed... just choose the power of you wheel!
  2. Yes, you can program the lights... But reconsider therequired power! What is your weight?
  3. You also shall consider that 500W might not be sufficient if you are a heavy rider.... over 75 kg... So a used ks16b could be an excellent option. You can easily find nice one in you budget!
  4. Just faceplant with my ninebot... no bips nor alarm.... something like 20kph... You know, probably just riding fast enough and when the very small slope (10%.. I did measure) arrived, the 500w where not enough in order to prevent me by tilt back to tell me : hey man, slow down with your 90 kg! Quite common accident in fact on euc! Most of people underestimate the required power when you arrive on such small slope! This is the reason why I spent time to understand since ninebot gave me very partial information from the black box! High power +limited high speed =safety margin
  5. My humerus broken in 4 parts was my option!!!!!
  6. This is what glider has learnt me : do never trust any mechanical device to keep you in the air... So, if you fly taking in account that you do can always join a safe place to land, with a safety margin, risks are very limited. Unfortunately, paraglider pilots or (worst) motoparaglider, or airplaines pilot do not (can not) always consider this event as an highly possible fact! On a wheel, the only way to anticipate a failure of the motor is to run it at a speed you can avoid to fall...
  7. I practice borh glider, paraglider (1200 flight hours) and wheel.... as long as you respect nature and wind aspect, wheel is definitely more unsafe than flying... my shoulder can confirm. In the flight device, you can support and anticipate some miss in technical behaviour, and you can control it (you have to!!!). With wheels, you'll not be informed!
  8. @rdalcanto.... The ninebot one c+ is a poorly powered wheel... be careful that the safety speed depends on the power and your weight! After my accident on my ninebot last February, my humerus has just been declared... repaired by my surgeon this afternoon.... it still hurt... but I have recovered all movements... I just need some more strength! So... be carefully and do not forget that slow speed and high power are your safety! Have fun!
  9. Welcome to the other part of the frontier..... There are two kind of EUC riders.... the one who have already eaten the road..... and,... the one who will!
  10. If wheels could have electronic and batteries redundancy!
  11. From 38 to 48.... with the 2500W From 29 to 39 with the 1600W Is it still reasonnable? Up to you!
  12. @checho, I fully agree with you.... big power at 25 km/h is also what I'm looking for.... but we have something in common that make us be reasonable. .. a broken shoulder!?? Anyway, with 1600 W, this wheel will never be able to go over 50 kmh. ... at least not safely at all!
  13. I do prefer this one, for sure!!! But is it more resistant to the hamer test? Another kind of plastic?
