  1. As New they were ridden once NO CHARGERS SF Bay Area or Ship to you at your cost 16S - $850 14D - $450 Take both? Saves me time and you money.... happy to send more pics or answer questions although I know nothing about them other than I don’t want them, thx
  2. I just got a KS 14S yesterday and am slowly learning to ride. Does anyone know where I can get replacement pads without the logo?
  3. Just here to give my opinions on the Ninebot Mini and why its a more dangerous than any other EUCs and see if anyone else here agrees with me. The argument: Last year before Christmas I bought a Ninebot Mini I had a go on it and realized not only was it less fun because you were required to go in a straight line but significantly more dangerous over riding any EUC. In fact I think the Mini should be speed limited to only 10-12km/h max and not 18! When riding at higher speeds and the floor is uneven you are having to adjust your body to the way the road is. For example when you ride on a slope where your only ONE of your wheels are lower or higher you would have to tilt to the direction that is higher to remain balance. For eg: If you are riding on the side walk and on your left there is a wheel chair ramp making the left wheel dip lower than the right wheel for a short bit you will have to quickly adjust your body to the right so remain balance if you stood still you will lose control. The other concern is that when you do so to maintain your centre of gravity you could knock that pole that controls the left or right, this has also become a major issue when riding on uneven surfaces. Unlike riding on an EUC the centre of gravity is between your foot at the point where the wheel hits the floor making it easy to glide over rougher terrains. On the Ninebot mini you are forced to adjust your body to the way the terrain is much more than what is required from an EUC. The benefit however of the Ninebot Mini is that you are able to pick it up quickly, and stand in place really easily. In short...after owning the Ninebot Mini I quickly sold it(without even owning it for 2 weeks) knowing the dangers that would possess with it and made a hefty profit during the Christmas season. My first actual post on the forum, thanks for reading Jack
  4. Okay... I'm getting so, so, so frustrated with my EUC experience. I really need help. I got my KS18S in late September. I started regularly riding it in late October. In January, it malfunctioned and threw me, sending me to the hospital. The company gave me a new EUC, but since my tire went flat, it's been a shitshow. It took me a while to order the special inner tubes, but I've reassembled the EUC thrice, with it malfunctioning in different ways each time I've tried starting it. I don't think changing a tire should involve directly plugging/unplugging delicate things into the circuit board. The last couple times I assembled it, it accelerated uncontrollably when turned on. Now it synchs with Bluetooth and a loud female voice shouts something intelligible at me, and the EUC itself doesn't move. Overall, I've been having a terrible experience with my EUC. I've been sending emails back and forth with the retailer, but these companies should be providing more support. What's your experience with EUC maintenance been like? Does Gotway provide better customer service?
  5. Hello everyone, do you guys know who has the biggest pedigree so far? Meaning as far as the euc not breaking up, with long term use, or reliability ...etc. In that who can take the most beating: The KS 16s from kingsong? Or the v8 from inmotion?
  6. Hi there everyone, I know of some gotways having coolers inside of them and stuff, like the tesla, and the ACM 2 also has a little one on the side, I was just wondering if the KS 16s have any coolers inside of them, has anyone opened one b4 and see one?

  8. On my way to work today my KS14d dropped me twice ! The first time was very minor . Low speed coming off my patio. Took a ~3” ledge at maybe 5mph and boom . The wheel lost its balance , fell forward and tossed me off . I picked it up and it righted it self immediately. Thinking it was a fluke or that maybe I hit a divot or something I continued on to work . Going ~15mph on a slight down hill I encountered another small dip . I was ejected forward again , this time hitting the pavement HARD!! . My lip is swollen like a golf ball. Ribs bruised . It’s bad ! Again picked up the wheel and it again righted itself immediately. I limped very very slowly to work . Battery was full and I wasn’t at max speed btw.
  9. So I’ve had my KS14D for about a month now and I have to say ...it’s awesome . A while back I started commuting to and from work on a Segway Mini Pro , it was great at first but soon got very dull. So I started looking into EUC’s. After a lot of research and sleepless nights staying up and looking at all things EUC I decided on the 14D with the help of @Joey Serrin at ewheels. Within 5 days it came across the country and landed on my front porch . Man was I excited ! That first night it was pouring down rain so I took to the hallway to get a feel for it. I have to say that was a very discouraging 3 hours . I couldn’t go 5 feet without losing my balance and stepping off . The next day I took it to the parking lot at my work and spent 5hours honing my skills. The wheel took a few tumbles and despite my fears it held up to all the punishment I threw its way! So big kudos to kingsong for making a really rugged machine! By the end of the night I was able to ride it all the way back home . Now the fun had really started . My overall impressions are that the thing is built like a tank , maneuvers on a dime after getting the hang of it and is actually pretty fast . It’s capable of riding right at its limit (about 18mph) with ease . The D sports a 420wh battery which is small in comparison to other wheels but is more than adequate for my 3mile round trip to work and most days I take it along the hiking trails around the lake near my house and it performs very well there too. I was actually really surprised with how adept it is off road , large roots , sand, grass , gravel , light mud ...it eats it all up. And speaking of the lake : On about day 4 I got really comfortable (too comfortable) and went on a night time trail ride . I hit a root I didn’t see coming and my foot slipped off a pedal and landed on another root , twisting my ankle and causing me to lose the wheel ...it ended up completely submerged in a deep puddle/overflowed segment of one of the streams . I grabbed the wheel out as soon as I figured out where it was (maybe 5-10 seconds..maybe more it was a tense time ) powered it off and whiped it down . To my surprise it was perfectly fine ! I turned it back on and rode it home . No issues to date . if you’re on the fence about your first wheel or maybe upgrading from a Ninebot or inmotion v5 this is the one ! Very reasonable price at $770 and a real beast in all conditions.
  10. Hi all! Looking to purchase a KingSong 14D. Have been reading reviews for waaay too long and think it's time to dive in. Sadly, it seems like I just missed a couple sales of the KS14D in the past month, but hoping someone else is out there in the NYC area or within the US looking to upgrade. Seems like market price is around $500 depending on condition. Give me a shout, cuz I'd love to hear from you! Can't wait to start riding! Have a good day! =)
  11. Following up on @Marty Backe and his disappointment in the KS-18s range I decided to do another 100-0% test on my KS-16s which I haven't done for a pretty long time, just in case I remembered wrong. I know I have been somewhat disappointed in the range of my 16s for quite some time. I start to get noticeable performance throttling as high as 40-50% battery. If you are using a charge doctor to start at 80% this doesn't give you very much "fun" range to play with. Below 35% the performance drops to just barely faster than a ninebot, around 15 mph. Below 15% you are limited to 12 mph. So from 100-0% today I got 23.5 miles, approximately 2.5 hrs of riding. To be fair this is on the hills of San Francisco both up and down some fairly steep inclines over the course of the test. I generally only feel good about riding my KS-16s for about 10-15 miles most days. Once it starts to throttle your top speed it also starts to struggle to climb hills and does not take well to hitting bumps at speed. Since I live in an urban area full of steep hills I always feel these effects if I ride more than 5 miles one way since my home is on top of a giant hill. So if I had double the battery (840 in my 16s to the 1680 of the 18s) I would have made 47 miles. This is almost exactly what Marty got I believe so I feel like those who have speculated one of the three battery packs may be disconnected are likely wrong. It really probably only goes ~45 miles if it is roughly double the endurance of my 16s. Since I use my 16s primarily to commute 7 miles per day roughly the range does not stop it from fulfilling that primary function. However, it really is not enough to go on longer group rides or extended hill climbing as the battery starts to limit your performance to the point where you could not keep up with the group within a fairly short amount of time. That being said the wheel has been great for traveling around the city and I still have fun riding it - but it just turns out the practical usable range for me is so far below what is commonly described on this forum that I feel like people should be informed. If I'd known the range was that limited I might have chosen a different wheel instead. What do you guys think? Are the riding conditions here (cold and hilly) making this more of an issue for me than for the average 16s owner? Or have others noticed this as well?
  12. My KS16s had an odd issue today. When I was walking it with the trolly the gyroscope seemed to fail. It would tilt forward as if out of power but then it would stop tilting after reaching maybe 20 degrees. Then it would stay that way for a bit and then start tilting back the other way until it was 20 degrees past horizontal in the opposite direction. It repeated this a couple times within a minute before I got back home. Thank god I wasn't actually riding on it when this happened, could have thrown me if it happened at high speed I suppose. Any idea what causes this? Should I stop riding it altogether just in case?
  13. Hi Guys, I need your help deciding on a wheel. I am from Australia and I have been researching this for quite sometime now. I can't seem to make a decision. Gotway seems to have the best capacity in the market but the worst quality control. With all the reported incidents on youtube; I do want to get the best, sturdiest, off-roading, long rage, highest wh out there but I dont want to die. Now I have seen many people on youtube crashing with Gotways without even reaching half its speed limit... ACM 2 giving up at 15mph after hitting a minute bump on the road. I sense a lot of frustration in many videos with gotways (ACM 2 with a wrong footplace installed). I need someone to give me an honest opinion on what is the best and safest out there for what I want bearing in mind that I dont plan on going any faster than 45 km/h - 96 kg weight
  14. Hi all, I just got a KS-14D a few days ago. Since I had been practicing with my son's InMotion V3C (two small tires on one central wheel) I could get the grasp of this "real" monocycle pretty fast, and I can drive it already around town. However, I have noticed that when going straight on flat roads and over 20 km/h the wheel kind of wiggles or shakes a little side to side, like it's going to loose balance. I can handle it but it's uncomfortable and I don't understand why it's happening. I have moved the riding settings in the app from medium to hard/experienced, but still happening. Is it me not riding it properly? Is it some kind of calibration that needs to be made? Any help is welcome. Thanks! Daniel.
  15. Hello, I am abut to order a Kingsong KS-16S, and I will like your recommendations for the best looking and most practical color to have it?

  17. Well, I was 95% sure I would be buying a Gotway Tesla but just pulled the trigger on a 16S. I was hemming and hawing over Gotway's reliability concerns but @EcoDrift's post about the insane failure/reject rate of Gotways sealed the deal for me. I know I'm not your target market but I wanted to thank you for your post there and that I highly respect your opinion, considering the volume of wheels you likely move. I did not want to reward a company that plays so free and loose with end-user safety with my business. Anyways, I was spending too much time researching all these different wheels and I felt like I'd have buyers remorse regardless of which wheel I went with and it was stressing me out. I figured the best way to stop stressing about it was to take the plunge and buy one or the other. Knowing myself, I know I'm not the type to wear a full face helmet and my dental insurance probably wouldn't cover catastrophic damage that a face plant at 30 mph would do to me, not to mention whatever other injuries I'd incur if the wheel cut out on me. If I was younger or on the opposite end of the spectrum, retired with pension/investment income, I may have gone with the Tesla but I still need to work for a living. However, I can't help but feel a little regretful thinking about the 30 mph that could have been; the 22 mph max speed will be a tough pill to swallow. I didn't intend for this to turn into a Gotway bashing thread but man, I really, really wish either Kingsong offerred something similar in power/speed/range with their build quality or that Gotway would up their QA (or quality in general). I look forward to continuing to lurk on this forum. Best regards, gr8ps
  18. I’ve been given the opportunity to get a good deal on a practically new 18s . It’s the 840wh version though. I’ve heard that the 1680wh version doesn’t really have all that great of a range so wondering what people have gotten out of the 840. My main consideration here is price . Is 25-35mi feasible ?
  19. Just crossed the 100 mile mark, with the wheel in hand about 7 weeks. Definitely not the quickest to the mark I know. I have worked my way up to the full 35 km/h that she is capable of, but finally did experience the dreaded lower-limit ollie at 27 km/h or so, with charge indicating 50 percent. Guess that happens on a windy day with 200 lbs trying to cut through it. It took me about 20 or so minutes to be up and riding, and my daughter picked it up on the third day of her adventure-in-learning. (she did end up with a large bump on the rear of her right ankle when it kicked up at her, and it's still there after 5 weeks or so) It has held up well from both of our attempts to break it apart. Definitely recommend safety gear, especially wrist guards, if you are going off-roading with it at all. Hidden holes can detach the wheel from your feet faster than you can recover, and suddenly you're looking down at the dirt, or up to the sky. I'm now confident enough to have ridden it around town a bit and on campus. Still can't pendulum or ride backwards, but tight turns and jumping off of curbs is no problem, and I can ride very slow, so I feel safe enough around moving obstacles. It has been a blast to ride, and to see the expressions of people that wonder "just what the heck is that?" For anyone that is thinking about getting a wheel, this does seem to tick all of the boxes of speed/reliability/safe/durable that I highly recommend it. Looking forward to many more miles, and increasing all my skills. (and for when they come out with a version with a trunk!)
  20. Hi, Any rough idea of when we should consider doing a maintenance? Every xx km? or when the tire has to be changed? or after a certain amount of time? Due to the incure injuries in case of possible device failure, I would prefer anticipating? . . . I am still recovering from my last fall :-) I did 750 km in 3 months
  21. Hello, Any of you, thought using his EUC as battery booster ? Recently I ran out of battery with my motorcycle. I went back home to take my cables and came back to the bike on my EUC. Once arrived, I had to ask someone his battery to connect my cables while I had a 840Wh battery between the feet. In conclusion, did anyone imagine doing an outside exit of the EUC battery to connect the clamps?
  22. I can't find Kingsong app on playstore.. Is it under different name ? What should I be searching for ? Thx
  23. Heyho... Finally some words and Pictures about my new KS18S... Let's start with some Pictures: The wheel: Some ingredients: and: Give this Outcome in the end (Really dont like the KS Advertising :-) ) Open Trolley: Mud Guard: Some words to the wheel: (Some Points i "lend" from another KS18S owner, as i am lazy and can't invent the wheel new) Plus: - Extreme "hard" driving mode, even the softest mode is stronger than my GW V3 67V - Seat is included and can be used on Long rides - Powerful, visible and reversible front and rear LEDs - This is the most powerful wheel produced by KingSong to date, both in torque and Speed. - fat Tire of 2.5 , extremly Grippy, Kenda Manufactered - Built-in fan to avoid overheating (starts at 54° Celsius and stops when brought down to 40-42, don't nail me on exact numbers) works flawless - Old Shell delivers really great stability while driving as it is leaning to the knees(once u are used to it) - 4 speakers, they seam a bit dump first, but on driving Sound excellent! - Excellent Build Quality with Focus on safety -fat wires, mosfets, axle etc (see later photos) Minus: - No trolley: But i have done somethin against that - No mudguard: But i am experienced in building one :-) - Old shell, its very "high", thats very different driving style from the other wheels of the market thus requiring a time of adaptation ? Can also be seen as positive But at all i am not good in listing, i better find my own words: This wheel is a powerHorse!!! The pedal Feeling is rock hard, on accelerating and braking there are nearly no movements of the pedal. This goes so far that when i step back on my Gotway V3 67V that on this wheel i am afraid of the pedal "sacking" for some moments, as you get used to this rock hard pedal Setting on the 18S so fast. Also The 18S main difference from my old 18A is that it is really, really agile and reactive. Where my 18A was sluggish and hard to idle, because slow in direction changing, the 18S really rocks...This has an disadvantage also: When you Need to carry the wheel a bit longer, over some stages or a barrier, you definitly have to Switch the power Off, because if you lift it up and dont have it perfectly grabed in the middle, the wheel/tyre starts rotating so fast and flippy, that you can not calm it down by moving into the other direction anymore. It reacts that fast...and accelerates like a rocket. As this question will certainly follow: Yes, it eats up my Gotway V3(67 Volt 1160wh) to breakfast....Easy! It is way harder and faster, way more powerfull. So this seams the only left competitor against the GW 84V rockets, but i cant compare it fairly to that...as i only have some minutes on a v3s+ until now. Hope on a Meeting we can do some comparison between the V3s+ and the 18S in drive behaviour. But i have to say that i doubt that the 18S can cope with the 84V, as it's just 25% more Voltage.... Where it stays out is the build Quality...and the attemps of KingSong to make their wheels safer, here some photos of the inside with some Explanation: I have open it up and all the wiring is top notch and on really thick wires. KS brings their Motor wires through one axle and the sensor wires through the other axle. The Motor wires...i found no AWG on the cable, but a print saying 2,5mm .....so each of the Motor cables is 2.5mm and it is only one hard strand (not multiple strand wire)....i guess on this there is no Need to fear heat anymore! Under the green protection are the 3 Motor wires...as you see all wires nicely hold together: Try to shoot the print on the Motor wires(3 black cables)...These wires are each just "one strand": The batteries are paralled and all go into one Connection Board with PCB, where each Batterie pack is secured by a fuse, so if one goes crazy or dead, your other batteries work on! Here you can see the PCB-thingie(it is under black folie)...the PCB inside has 3 x 40Amp Fuse, one for each Batterie: The axle has getting thicker than on older KS: End of Part 1 :-)
  24. Time to sell this beauty, due to upgrading. As I'm out of town currently, I'LL check tomorrow the total milage and post actual pics too. Purchased in June last year. Some faint marks of usage on the shell, pedals scratched a bit, but hey, what d'ya expect??!! ? Other than that everything's is in working order, flawlessly and trolly still does it's job great! Asking price €880. Prefer collection, but shipping is no prob. (Costs buyer)
