    Ninebot Z10 Carving?

    I think that the KS 18 L (or xl) is the best carver

    THE VIDEO THREAD!

    On Sunday Rome will host the Formula E race and today we had the chance to test the track with our Wheels! Unfortunately I couldn’t use my camera (no sticks allowed). This is just a short video I did with my phone ( was not allowed). Official video coming soon

    State of the EUC industry?

    Here in Italy Eucs are still a niche but the movement is growing slowly but constantly. In my city (Rome) in 2016 we were 4/5 people, now more than 50.

    KingSong protective covers are now a thing...

    I just received my cover half hour ago. A long way from NZ to Rome. It looks great.

    KS 18 XL mud flap / mud guard / fender in practice

    Aesthetically the old one is the best. It reminds me my old Vespa from the ‘60.
  6. Great mod! I just did it. Good sensations after 10km test. Thank you.

    Face plants

    I was ok. After that crash I did another 30km in Naples. The day after I woke up with a lot of pain all over my body. But nothing was wrong. After a week I was on my wheel again. This is the link (with piatire) to my first accident when I broke my arms

    Face plants

    The best way to fall on a wheel, in my opinion, is trying not to open your arms and just go down with a little twist. All the "falling techniques" that are coming from martial arts are not usable on a wheel. The big difference is that yours feet , when you are falling from the wheel, are not starting from the ground but they are 20 cm in the air. This is a big big difference.

    Face plants

    I had a faceplant in April and I broke my arms. I consider my self an experienced rider (1500 km on a V5F+, 3000 Km on a V8 and 2800 Km on a Ks18L). After the crash I learned the lesson and I was very cautious driving the wheel. But two weeks ago (Italian meet up in Naples) I crashed again. In a totally flat and smooth pavement I took the only hole in the area (as you can see on the video). I was sure about the good condition of the pavement and I stop watching it and, like a stupid, I concentrated on shooting a video! Fortunately I was wearing protections under my jacket. So: It does not metter how good you are in driving, if you are not super concentrate on watching the street you will fall soon or later. Any single small hole or bump can be dangerous if you are not aware of it. This is from another point of view. You can see the only small hole in 5 km of street:

    NEW LARGER KS FOOT PLATFORMS ADDED TO THE 18L

    I did 20km to test the new pedals. Great general inprouvement. More stability and more confort. They look beautiful too.

    Kingsong 18L Wrong Tire Direction

    I like the opposite, leaning slightly to the driving direction. I used the level too but not on the pedals. I will try soon Thank you.
