    Smash 'N Grab EUC theft from vehicle!

    I get email alerts for Kingsong on Craigslist so I let you know if it pops up.

    Smash 'N Grab EUC theft from vehicle!

    I’m sorry Jeff. I hate when these types of things happen. Was this the wheel I sold you way back when?

    KS18L and MSuper X

    I love my matte black 16s. Holds up well. I would definitely choose the matte again. Plus when it does get nicked up it seems to just look rugged. My shiny wheels...not so much.

    KS18S Review After 130-miles

    @Evel_Knievel Wow! I sorry you ran into this, but glad you have the know how to troubleshoot it and fix the problem. I never traveled that far to question the range and never opened it up. It’s a great wheel and I hope you enjoy it.

    My KS18S Review and Ongoing Observations

    I’m waiting on the V10F and I’m excited to ride it, but I still think the KS16s will have a spot. The KS16s is a great around town wheel. Much more compact and it has a really nice true round shape that is pleasing to the eye. It is very maneuverable and I think will be easier to whip between your ankles in tight spots. I look forward to riding them both. I agree that the higher speed of the Tesla puts that wheel also in a different category.

    GW Electronics Safety Improvements

    @Jason McNeil Are the Gotway wheels the only ones that deal with this issue? Do King Song or Inmotion have this problem? I feel like I personally can avoid this type of thing happening , but you never know with kids. My youngest is 7 and doesn’t mess with things too much, but it makes me cringe to think of something like this happening while I wasn’t around.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I always thought Inmotion designed their own motors. The V8 was described as not using an electric bike motor, but was built specifically for euc. Am I correct on this? Not sure if the V10 is the same or not.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    No, it was a pre production wheel and indeed not safe. At least they came on here and disclosed the problem and plan to take care of it in the production models. I would love to see a reference of any of the other manufacturers that have done that.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    @Bobwheel I really appreciate you finding out what went wrong and disclosing it here on the forum. Inmotion/Solowheel has been showing lately that they care about their customers opinions. Bringing your prices back down from an inflated state and now having open communication about the V10F is what I want from a euc company. Not to mention a priority on quality control and safety. Bob, I encourage you to please continue to stay active on this forum to answer questions about your product. I own many wheels from different manufactures as well as electric skateboards and Onewheels. (Not as many as @Marty Backe) This is a fun hobby and I enjoy riding and seeing the new inovations that come out each year. Although I wish the V10F was a little less scratch prone, (I prefer a matte finish) I want to put my money where my mouth is. I just put an order in with ewheels for a V10F. I’ll have to wait for the second batch in June, but it’s worth it. I hope other companies will follow suit and become more accessible to their customers. Keep up the good work Inmotion/Solowheel.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    I want to say having your presence here is a big plus in my book for Inmotion/Solowheel. If you would find out the problem and report back, that would be amazing. We get some represention here from a few euc companies, but it’s not much. Mishaps are going to happen, but handling them and following up with good communication with customers is key I’m my book. Nice job! Looking forward to future reports on this wheel. By the way...that off road prototype is amazing! You need to build that wheel Bob. @BobwheelVery cool concept.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    My V8 doesn’t spin out at all when it goes on it’s side. It tells me to “be careful” , but no Gotway dance. I’d be shocked if the production v10 would do this.

    My Inmotion V10F Triumphs, Tribulations, and Failures

    Oh man...that’s a bummer. Bad timing as well. If inmotion is smart, they will fully investigate and report back the findings on the reason for the failure. Nice job Marty. I haven’t had a chance to watch your last video yet, but I appreciate your thorough testing. I have to say that I’m a little more hesitant on the V10 now. The one thing that was pushing me to that wheel is the reliability. If that’s in question, I might as well stick with my Gotways and the benefits of the longer range. I wonder if the red LEDs are a certain specific code that might indicate to inmotion what the exact problem is. I still don’t have my LEDs working on my V8 after replacing them. Other than that the V8 and v3pro have been kid tested and have held up very well.

    Nice video Marty! Looks like a strong wheel. I have two inmotions and I’m pretty happy with the quality. Looking forward tot the next video. The two wheels I’m considering purchasing is this one or the 100v Monster. Big difference...I know. Just wondering if the v10 will be too much like my 16s. Thanks for the video.
