  1. I chose and paid for KS18L, waiting for delivery. With the Z10, I never really liked it. I want my wheel to resemble bicycle, not motorcycle. I often trolley it indoors and I'm glad people often think it is expensive suitcase, or even vacuum cleaner 😂. As the wide tire doesn't seem to have any benefits for shock absorption (stated by early reviews), there is no reason for me to get it. Msuper X is not very pretty, but main reason I didn't get it is that I don't trust Gotway company for their quality control and failure rates. Also top speed behavior, where it let you go until cutout, is super scary. V10F is the one I was originally hyped about. As owner of V5F and later V8, this was supposed to be next step for me. I reserved one in April and hoped for early June delivery. European batch got delayed to late June / early July which gave me more time to reconsider. Early reviews didn't convince me of this wheel "superiority". Maybe I over-hyped it for myself. Then bearing problems begun and some other early owners reported another issues. I know Inmotion is taking care of it, but again it lowered my "superiority" view of V10F. I still believe V10F is a wonderful wheel, but KS18L is IMHO just a bit better so in the end I went with that one.

    KingSong KS18L Q&A

    I would like you to comment on acceleration from standstill in comparison with other wheels you know and braking power too.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    I finally decided and ordered KS18L from speedyfeet.co.uk . After owning Inmotion V5F and later V8 (and being very satisfied with both) I'm surprised at my own decision. Always thought my next wheel will be Inmotion again and it would be, If the shipment weren't delayed and Inmotion Czech got their batch on time, I wouldn't have time to change my mind. Now the wait continues, just for different wheel. Also I need some serious protection gear, time to go shopping. Thanks everyone for your input.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    Perhaps it was batch with motors from the same supplier that provided faulty motors for first batch of V10F? Just speculating. I have ridden my V8 every day for a year in any weather, jumping off curbs and never had any issue. My weight was around 100 kg (lost 15kg since, yaaay). Mileage roughly 2600km.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    I do not trust Gotway. I would consider them If I had supplier / service nearby. I'm not DIY type of guy.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    Decisions, Decisions... In the last week it's almost every day I decide "definitely" for either KS18L or V10F and then next day I read some new info and change my mind again. Here is a summary of what I found. KS18L + 10km/h higher top speed - Not sure If I ever want to go that fast, but it should be safer not riding near limits. + 76Wh more battery capacity - Just a minor difference + Two charging ports + USB ports + Grip tape pedals - Better grip V10F + 225 EUR cheaper (at least from stores I have available) + Better headlight and speakers - That is just a guess, never found any direct comparison + Larger pedals with rubber - should maintain its grip "forever" + More reliable cutout button Both should have similar handling, size, weight and height of pedals. Handle seems to be personal preference. First batch of V10F seems to have some issues, hopefully resolved by Inmotion by now. Reviews are usually positive with minor complaints / dissatisfaction. Some of those could be fixed with firmware update. KS18L is so fresh it has almost no reviews yet, but what can be found is highly positive. Only complaint found is handle disconnect mechanism does not work 100%. I will appreciate any input, or correction. I will probably make final desicion tonight. EDIT: I did not include app as I usually use it only once for initial setup.

    V10F vs KS18L?

    I'm also very interested in opinion of someone who tried both. I can compare stats on paper easily and both would be suitable for my needs. I would like to know the difference in handling and general feeling of the wheels. KS18L seems generally a bit better, also a bit more expensive. With V10F, huge advantage for me is, that I have official distributor in my country.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Bad bearing, backwards mounted tire, strange overload behavior, unexplained loose motion, broken tail light in one case and maybe some more... There is not a huge amount of these wheels out there and so many owners report issues. I was so sure I want this wheel, I even reserved one (should be in Czechia on ~15th June) but now I'm not so sure anymore. KS18L seems more and more appealing. I hope Inmotion guys will address those issues ASAP.

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    I count down every day until V10F arrives (and there are still way too many ahead), so I decided to shorten my wait a little with my "old" V5F. It is first time I experimented with recording my ride, so I apologise for shaky cam.

    New Inmotion V10 (V8 Fast)

    Same. My distributor lists availability from 15th of June My V8 was sold way too fast and now I'm super impatient and in need of this new beauty.
  12. I though about it and dismissed for two reasons. 1. In my country and my city bikes are stolen all the time. More expensive = more likely to be stolen and no lock is gonna help. So I wouldn't be able to take it to most places I need it for. 2. After initial learning, EUC feels so intuitive and natural to ride. It is almost like an extension of my body. There is really nothing like it. Bicycle feels so boring in comparison.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I have been commuting to work daily on V8 in almost any weather for a year or two. Only time I fell was on snow (not surprising). Rain has never been a problem for me. Of course I don't push the limits and ride more carefully in rain. So maybe those beers are to blame

    My First Wheel

    Yeah, but with 340wh battery, when it starts to deplete, you can probably buy several new battery packs and it will still be cheaper than 1680wh wheel. But I get what you mean and agree.

    My First Wheel

    The thing with EUCs is, that now you might think range is not that important. But after few hundred kilometres you will want more. I just sold V8 and will get V10F soon because of that reason. Not that I need more range, but I want more range :-) . So even as your first wheel I would recommend something with at least 650 Wh. It is very frustrating to have desire to go for a nice and long ride but being limited by a short range. Whatever you will choose from what you listed (KS14, KS16, V10), they are all great wheels IMO.
