  1. In that case better wear it as a pedestrian too.
  2. Doesn't look very useful to me for an euc. The stuff you hurt the most when falling from an euc is still unprotected (shoulders, elbows etc). This is great for high speed impacts where you want to protect your chest or back (smashing a motorcycle at 100mph for instance). For our speeds and usage 3do style soft-but-hard-when-falling padding will be sufficient IMO.
  3. Posted a couple of pages ago but got lost in the flood of "OMGWTF TIRE" posts here It simply died. Doesn't turn on anymore. Happened while sitting in my house. I turned it on a couple of days before. Tried it again, nothing.
  4. I just put mine back in the box and will ship it to the seller tomorrow for repairs :/
  5. TBH besides all the drama in the KS16X thread, the KS16X is a better wheel than the Z10. I also own both. But they are different. For one nothing beats the look of the Z10, and there is something special about riding it. But riding them back to back over the same road I'm pretty sure nobody will say the Z10 does it better. If you don't have the time to use both I can understand selling one of them.
  6. Also the 5V circuit should be on when the charge plug is connected (remember the flashing brake leds when charging). This isn't happening either.
  7. This is a King Song. The charge port only works in one direction (as it should :p )
  8. I hope you never hit one of those furries at that speed :/
  9. Sure, but the leap could be even bigger
  10. That's the problem. You can overpower any wheel with any weight. If you are light you can do this by attacking steep hills or by putting on a heavy back pack. The question is where does the responsibility of the manufacturer stop and that of the rider begin? In the end there is no way they can be 100% sure nobody will face plant ever on this wheel.
  11. Let's add some more drama to the thread, shall we? My KS16X died last week. I charged it up to 100% percent for a ride the next day. Long story short, I managed to break something in my foot that day so no ride the next day (nor the weeks after). So there I had a 100% charged wheel that would be sitting there for 2 months. So I decided to charge some stuff through the usb port. Turned the wheel on, charged my phone for a while. Turned the wheel back off. Couple of days later I want to do it again, but alas .... no more turning on the wheel for me. Plugged the charger (to make sure battery wasn't dead for some reason). It was red and turned to green 30 minutes later. Still the same problem. So I have a 100% charged brick right now. Discussing with 1radwerkstatt on how to get this fixed. They presume there is something wrong with the 5V circuitry. This sucks (even if I can't ride it) :/ Hopefully it's just a matter of swapping out a board.
  12. Pretty sure you could go faster by holding 2 kettlebells in your hands :p
  13. Fot those that use the Demon Flex Force X2 D3O, how do they fit with wrist protectors?
  14. https://xionpg.com/body-protection/longsleeve-jacket-pro-d3o/ This looks pretty good. The question is, what to wear over it that as some abrasion resistance.
  15. I have a lot of G-Form equipment.That is going to protect the knees from the initial impact, but they for sure are not made to slide on (and I wear them under my pants, not helping the sliding ether). When I ride off road I now use Leatt knee protection. The only downside is that they tend to slide down if I have to walk a certain distance. Need to fiddle a bit more with the velcro I think.
  16. That's fast for that wheel IMO. For me it's a wheel to reach those speeds on smooth paved roads. Then again, that's my completely subjective opinion, not based on any hard data or specs whatsoever. I would take an MSX if those speeds on that terrain were my objective. 100V while we're at it.
  17. Let's agree to disagree. You are already linearly interpolating input values that have a deviation of several meters, to calculate a non-linear value (you are not going constant speed, you are accelerating). On top of that you add a very noisy accelerometer. (I do iOS development for a living, I know what the accelerometer and GPS are capable of, and I spend my free time working with race cars and sometimes motor cycles, so I also know about the Harry's laptimers and other things that exist on smartphones, compared to high end solutions such as a RaceLogic Vbox, or AiM race dashboards). Anything with a sampling rate lower than 10Hz and the necessary hardware to compensate for inaccuracies is useless, and the lower the speed the worse it gets. 30 km/h = 3.6m/s. If your GPS has a 2 meter deviation (which is really not a lot) and you sample 2 times in 2 seconds worst case vs best case you end up with 2 points that are either 11.2 meter apart or 3.2 meter apart. If you go lower speeds it's even worse. And on top of that you have to non-linearly interpolate between those values to find the different timestamps at certain speeds? Of course this will work better when you are driving your car on a drag strip or a race track, where you are going 50-200 km/h. The faster you go the less the constant deviation of the GPS becomes an issue. The most precise way I can think of measuring this is by attaching an AiM Solo to your wheel. That's perfectly possible. I have a few of them at home, but I'm not going to be the guinea pig to test accelerations on an euc
  18. Ja dat werkt ook, maar meer werk om aan en uit te doen natuurlijk.
  19. 3M dual lock is ridiculously strong. We mount stuff with it in our race cars, and it doesn't move for 24 hours, even with lots of abuse (and sometimes crashes). I used it to attach the neoprene protection to my KS16X.
  20. It shows the road conditions pretty well. What's the fun in having an off road video that looks like it's shot on a gimbal? Might as well ride on a normal road then. And it's not sped up. This is normal playback speed.
  21. @Slashebeest worst part (road conditions) starts at 2:53
  22. Nope This is with GoPro 7 stabilisation or post process stabilisation turned OFF And you'll only spend 30 seconds setting it up, instead of fiddling for 5 minutes with all those tiny attachments that bend in every direction except the one you want
  23. Yeah I don't really get what's going on either.
