  1. Hey! I'm about to pull the trigger on my first wheel and I'm looking for best in class/most bang for buck combined with best looking. Both equally important. I got a couple of more or less hopeless subjective questions I would like your input on: 1. Is the Ninebot Z10 the best looking wheel? I had decided on Kingsong 18XL until I saw the Z10. Should I still get the 18XL because it is so much better in every other aspect than design? 2. Guess no one gets away with not paying tax on stuff from Aliexpress anymore? Still cheaper even with VAT (18XL - €1900 vs €2300) but then there's the wait... seems like most deliveries take around 60 days. That's crazy long for something you want yesterday. Thoughts? I'm in Sweden so still have to buy from another country. Thanks!
  2. I'm looking to purchase my first EUC and have a few questions on wheel size. I've ridden a friend's EUC a few times and think I'm ready to commit. Right now I have it narrowed down between the Kingsong 18XL and the Kingsong 16X. This is based on the following criteria in no particular order: Range of at least 30mi/50km Comfortable for 10-15mi commute (each way) Able to fit on a bus if the weather is bad (there is usually plenty of space available on the buses where I am, so it could share the seat next to me if necessary) Hill climbing (I live in the mountains so I need some torque to get up/down the hills) Off-road capable (I'd like to take this on some nearby trails that include some tree roots, bumps, drops, gravel, loose dirt, etc) Reliable (I've heard to stay away from the first few batches of a wheel while the kinks are worked out) Speed of at least 20mph/33kph From what I've gathered on my searches: Small wheels are best for: Hill climbs (smaller wheels have more torque since they require less energy to move one full rotation) Agility (less mass/inertia) Large wheels are best for: Commuting (the larger the wheel, the larger the bumps it can "ignore" or not feel) Long rides (larger surface area on the pavement feels "smoother") Gravel/Off-road bumpy terrain (aforementioned reasons ^^) Sorry for the long read, but here are my questions. How big of a difference in comfort is between an 18" and 16" wheels when commuting/off-roading, and how much of a torque difference between the two? Will the 16" be a noticeably better hill climber than the 18", or overheat as easily as the 18xl as @Marty Backe has shown in his videos? How much should I be worried about first/second batch issues with the 16X? TLDR; I want a wheel for commuting and off-road with good range and torque. What are the pro's/con's of a 16" over an 18" and how big of a difference between the two? Thanks in advance for the help and insights!
  3. Hello guys, hope youre having awesome days with your wheels!❤️ I recieved my new lovely 18XL last week and I completely forgot to check the tire pressure...(ridden around 60km so far and I love it!) My BW is 80Kg, I am 180cm... How many PSI / BAR should I use? Thank you very much guys, have a great day!
  4. Hello my friends! This question is for 18XL owners... Can you share with me the true range your 18XL can make? +Your weight? The temperature outside? Thank you a lot, it will help me a lot... Have a great day guys!
  5. Received the new foot platforms today. I installed them and took the wheel for a ride. I noticed an immediate improvement in how it felt to stand on the platformsI felt more balanced. I actually felt as if I had more control of the wheel. That feeling could be purely psychological given that I didn't spend very much time riding the wheel. It could also be an effect of what seems to be a grippier foot tape. I don't know whether the tape feels gripper because it lays across the entire surface of the wheel, has a higher friction surface, none of the above, or all of the above. I suspect that my feet will fare Better on longer rides with these larger platforms. However, at the end of the day standing for long periods of time is still standing for long periods of time. I will take the wheel for a ride to explore any changes wrought by new foot platforms. Except for the mudflap. My 18L now looks entirely like the 18XL, with all the same equipment except for the battery. gives me a great idea of what it will be like to ride the XL when it arrives. Looking forward to getting some real impressions about those new foot platforms on a longer ride. Important note. When installing the new platforms please be aware that the metal dowel that holds the platform to the hanger now installs from only one side (on the K for Kingsong side). You will now only need one hexagonal screw on one side of the platform to hold it in place.
  6. This is the first ride Kingsong 18XL with my new machine from Speedyfeet in the UK. I took this brand new Electric unicycle out for its maiden trip. This is soo nice :-)
  7. Hello 18xl riders! Im thinking about the true range you can get with this wheel..... I saw some youtube range tests...but they were quite different from each other... What is your range you can get with the 18XL if you cruise 25-30 mph avarage? Thank you guys, have a great sunny week!
  8. Ok so, Hello again... I have just realised, the 18xl and MSuperX are the same price on Aliexpress... Do you guys have some experiences with those wheels? What wheel gets better range? I know MSX has higher top speed... For a daily commute +- 50km.... Thanks guys, have a great ride!
  9. Hello guys, I can have Z10 for 1450 USD Or 18XL for 1750 USD. What wheel should I get? I want long range, so 18XL might be better for me, but i dont really know the true range of z10... What do you guys think about it? Is the 18xl worth the 300 bucks? Thanks, have a great day!
  10. Hello my friends! I am looking to buy KS18XL, I am from central europe, but here the wheel is 2200 EUR, wich is way too expensive. I dont wanna spent more than 1500 EUR. Is there some way to get it cheap in europe? Thanks guys, have a great day.
