  1. I learned to ride (not powerful enough to glide) on, beat the crap out of, and killed one of these in my first month owning it. It was this weak design that caused me to learn how to crash without injury, as this design constantly lacked in power. The shell can take about 100 crashes, at this point the motor usually breaks too. The most commonly rebranded wheel. Pros: Cheap light-ish fast charging good breaking Cons: Very weak motor incapable of off road usage low water resistance typically less than 10km per charge, uses local chinese batteries 300w motor Conclusion: unsafe due to lacking power output, not worth the shipping cost (sometimes more expensive than the whole device) if you buy outside of china.

  2. Does anyone know why the airwheel android app was killed if you install it and run it just says no longer available? Thanks, Brian
  3. Hello everyone! here Horace from Uruguay, South America. In my country, the EUC´s are very rare to see and very expensive, the only brand that has vendors is Airwheel, for that reason, i have an Airwheel X3. The X3 is fun and the speed or the torque are fine for me, however, the range are very limited. My X3 is the 130 Wh version, which only has a maximum range of 8k away. (my weight is about 70 kg) I have been thinking about doing and adding a secondary battery pack in parallel over the charger port, using the secondary package as a backpack. I will buy 16 batteries Samsung INR18650 30Q and putt them in series, adding an secondary EMS board and connectors. Im not sure how charge the packs using the X3 original AC adaptor: A) Independent way, this mean charging the internal X3 battery in first place, and after that charge the backpack. Charging both coneccting the AC charger to the GX16-3 female conector on the backpack, which is atached to the X3 in parallell over the charge port.. I need a diagram on how to make this modification in detail, especially the wiring and the pinout on the GX16-3 male connector attached to the new battery. I know that passiongadgets site sell ones ready to plug, but now they are out of inventory, and the seller is located Singapore, very difficult for me to bring them, due to Uruguay customs restrictions. I made a simplified schematics on how i will make the battery, please any help will by appreciated. Thanks in advance: Horacio.

  5. The development of self-balancing electric scooters enrich its varieties, ranging from electric unicycle, twin-wheeled electric scooter to 2-wheeled electric scooter. Some find it difficult to learn and some complain they feel fatigued in a single riding posture after a long time. Airwheel, a leading global intelligent vehicles solution provider launched the latest product S8, electric scooter with seat breaking such limitations. The following pays attention to its unique operation mode. Conventional riding posture Since the emergence of self-balancing electric scooters, the standing up electric scooters predominate the market and the sort of saddle-equipped scooter is seldom seen. Riders control the scooter to go forward, accelerate, decelerate, and brake, etc. by leaning forward or backward. The built-in smart sensors will respond to the change of gravity center accurately to ensure a smooth riding experience. It seems simple, yet cool enough that requires a high balancing skill. By contrast, the sitting posture self-balancing scooter is easier to learn with lower gravity center, compared with the electric standing scooter. However, riders easily feel tired and tedious either in sitting posture or standing posture. Multi-ride mode Multi-ride mode refers to one electric scooter is endowed with 2 or 2+ riding postures that can be changed in accordance with actual needs. Airwheel S8 rewrites the algorithm and upgrades the pressure sensitive system transforming the two-shaft driving to all-round three-shaft driving, to achieve the purpose of either standing or sitting to ride. The superiorities of Airwheel S8 with multi-ride mode The superiorities of Airwheel S8 with multi-ride mode can be analyzed from the following two aspects. 1) Learn to creep before you walk, learn to sit ride before you stand to ride. Sitting to ride is much easier to keep balance. When green hands have mastered the skills in sitting posture, they will feel no pressure to stand to control it. Actually, the sitting riding period serves as the interim for beginners to acclimatize themselves to this novel vehicle. 2)dual alternative=more application scenarios It is inevitable to feel exhausted in the ride. Have a seat to rest and go forward at the same time is a desirable choice. To feel the Fast & Furious, standing to ride will satisfy you. Either way, riding comfort and enjoyment are guaranteed. To conclude, the multi-ride mode empowers Airwheel S8 to better cope with the possible situations in the riding process, indicating it will be a potential blockbuster in the intelligent vehicles solution.
  6. Abstract: Airwheel, a leading smart transportation vehicle manufacturer, launched Airwheel S8, an electric scooter with seat, at the annual CeBIT in Germany 2016, fully reflecting the R&D concept of underlining users' safety from its design details. For the quality and safety issues, the editor has conducted an interview with Andy, director of engineering verification in Airwheel who shared a lot of detailed information about Airwheel and Airwheel S8 saddle-equipped electric scooter in this interview. Editor: we are familiar with such positions as product manager or ID design and acquire little knowledge about verification engineer. Would you like to talk about your responsibilities? Andy:To be simple, the verification engineer is to examine every single link in the production process to guarantee the electric hoverboards quality and safety in use. This is the precondition to hold market share. Tough I work behind scenes, I think I am communicating with the end-user via the product quality itself. Editor: How many stages does it go through, S8, for instance? Andy:My work covers the whole process of a new product, from the early R&D to mass production. There are four main parts for every new product to experience, EVT (Engineering Verification Test), DVT(Design Verification Testing), DMT(Design Verification Testing) and MVT (Mass-Production Verification Test). An EVT is performed on first engineering prototypes, to ensure that the basic unit performs to design goals and specifications. Even there is only a circuit board and we need to verify the idea and design thought proposed by engineer to revise the anticipated problems in a simple way. After there is model machine, it will enter the DVT stage to test its performance. The DMT and DVT proceed simultaneously. We will simulate various extreme conditions to test the speed and hardness etc. In MVT stage, the attention is paid to the craft, quality and stability etc. Editor: Since last year when Amazon and Overstock.com unshelved electric scooters due to safety and patent considerations, the safety issue of self-balancing scooters, which used to be a blockbuster on foreign markets, has started to draw attention from local governments. What do you think of that? Andy: Quality and safety go first. High standards are helpful for the whole industry, as it indicates an active and healthy direction. Every product of Airwheel is up to or even exceeds the international standards. For instance, IS: the tire lock and starting motor require at least 7 h, and thermal rating of motor coil is Class A (105). Airwheel reaches Class F (155). Submerging half of its bodywork in water for five minutes, our S8 can still work normally and go through charge-discharge cycle for twice while the international standard is to be able to go through charge-discharge cycle for once. In this respect, I am confident with S8. Editor: Would you like to disclose the future plan of safety and quality issues? Andy:Since its foundation, Airwheel has taken the safety and quality issues seriously. We will reinforce the status to give consumers the most trust-worthy products. Airwheel is set to construct a comprehensive experimental site, referring to the latest international experimental site and introduce more advanced laboratory equipment to enrich engineering verification.
  7. Airwheel, a leading smart transportation vehicle manufacturer, has launched a variety of intelligent electric scooters enjoying an increasingly high reputation all over the world. One of the latest products S8 is arresting a great many of scooter-lovers’ attention. “Standing without ease, outstanding with difficulty”, the slogan of Airwheel S8 highlights playing for fun that is well received. How does the design concept come into fruition? To answer this question, we are honored to have an interview with Trevor, Industrial Designer of Airwheel S8. Interviewer: As known to all, Airwheel electric hoverboards has become a leading global intelligent vehicles solution provider, would you like to share its development history? Trevor:I am flattered, as Airwheel is regarded as a leading smart transportation vehicle manufacturer and meanwhile I am honored to be its Industrial Designer and its products get acknowledged. Since its establishment, Airwheel is committed itself to producing a handy and green vehicle as much as possible. The R & D of electric scooter is less challenging compared with the pervasive Rv yacht. At its infancy, Airwheel is to create a more intriguing and funnier lifestyle and later finds its products need to be an integral part of the public to benefit more. That’s why Airwheel released kinds of self-balancing electric scooters and electric skateboard. Nowadays, the advancement of high tech sets a new front for the self-balancing scooter sector. Airwheel has made a stride in the riding posture, being responsible for both customers and shareholders. This is Airwheel S8, electric scooter with dual ride mode. Interviewer: Yes, the design of Airwheel S8 leaves a deep impression on me. What do you think is the most challenging problem during the design? Trevor:Since the mass production of S6, we have begun to conceive the renovation plan. S8 is derived from S6 and S6 adopts the second generation of balancing scooter technology, transforming 2 points to 3 points control that effectively improves the riding experience. However, there are still some problems, especially in turning and obstacle traffic ability. How to adjust the flexibility of stress intensity and system sensing racked our brains. Definitely, it is a favorable change altering a sitting posture to ride, allaying tiredness resulted from long time riding. The key is the smart sensor needs to react timely and accurately. Inspired by the oval line, a famous math curve, we designed the operating rod to be a curve, making the force bearing point in golden ratio. In this way, with lower gravity center, more flexible control and larger bearing capacity, riders are able to enjoy a more comfortable and safer ride in sitting posture. This is one of the main differences between S6 and S8. Interviewer: And that is also why S8 enjoys larger consumer base. In the design, will you make free-hand sketch first or just produce effect drawing via the three-dimensional software directly? Trevor:I think free-hand sketch is the most convenient and economical method to express our thoughts. Actually, the opinions about the importance of free-hand sketch vary from designers. Some regard it as an integral part of design and some tend to use other ways to express their ideas. I will make free-hand sketch first, and then there will be a 2D rendered image that improve work efficiency. The 2D rendered image is able to present all the details of the design products for us to revise. After reaching a unanimous decision, it will enter the three-dimensional production stage. Airwheel S8 self-balancing scooter adopts 10 inch tubeless tires with a better roadworthiness. Interviewer: Thanks for your answer. And you must be a great painter. Last question, what do you think of the industrial design of a product or what’s the role of industrial design plays in a product? Trevor:Industrial design plays an important role. While, the success of product’s industrial design does not lie in the success of a single product, but the design concept and strategy related to its brand. The design concept is a mirror of its core value and commitment to users. And design strategy shows the corporate’s vision and plan of industrial design. From OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) to OBM (Original Brand Manufacturer), there is a long way for Airwheel to go. Interviewer: Thanks for sharing this with us. Hope Airwheel S8 will break the sales record. Trevor:Thank you. (The end.)
  8. Hi! I have an idea to increase the clock of the maindoard by changing the quartz resonator on the Airwheel board. I expect to full the maindoard that it would consider the speed is lower after comparinh hall sensors pulse frequency with clock frequency. What is your opinino? Would this work?
  9. I have two perfect Airwheel s8's mini's for sale with literally less than a few meters on them. They are a customer return that just didn't like them so up for sale they go. I have been involved with the electric scooter industry since 2015, please feel free to call or text me at 1-925-628-8874 with any questions you may have. I'm not only a seller but very enthusiastic about battery powered tech. From cars to airplanes, I love the direction the industry has been going in for the last several years. 
  10. Hello, I have an Airwheel X3 that has been sitting around lately and is looking for a new home. There are multiple scratches and scuffs, however, it is still in good condition (7.5/10) and works very well. Comes with training wheels, charging kit and everything included in original box. I am looking for around $250 + shipping but I am willing to negotiate. Located in the U.S. Thanks.
  11. This is a great unit to get started on. Better to beat up a cheap wheel while you learn than an expensive one. This unit is in good condition. It has a few bumps and scratches but nothing that compromises the function. Runs like new.
  12. Hi everyone, I've had an Airwheel Q1 since 2015 and although it is not a fast wheel, I really enjoy it and is a great learning wheel for my wife and kids. It also has a cool paintbrush design done by a local artist that makes me want to stick to it. See pics below. Problem is that I kept the tires at 30 PSI but due to the low profile of the tire, 30 PSI is not enough to keep the rim from damaging the inner side of the tire when jumping from a curve or going over small rocks. I've been looking for replacement tires for a while but it has been difficult because the Q1 tires have very odd dimensions which are not even found on the actual tire! Any help is appreciated! : ) Thanks!
  13. At first I was thinking of buying an Airwheel duo to the January Sale where for example the Q3 is 50% off at TheAirwheel.com. But now I´m thinking of getting a Gotway since there is a lot of positive feedback for it. Am I wrong or is it really better please tell me I´m not very experienced Unicycle or whatever you call it user but please dont come up wiht comments that are lead by my not existing experience and only give me some in that way neutral feedback. Now I´m considering buying a Gotway MCM4 thru this link http://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Reserve-Gotway-MCM4-130wh-260wh-340wh-520WH-680WH-electric-unicycle-one-wheel-scooter-800W-motor-max/1908673_32468490098.html . But now I´ve come to the question where I would really like to know what battery capacity is really worth it and how far i would come with the 260wh and the 340wh option both ordinary and high speed version. And if I ride at about 20km/h with both wheels will there be a difference in distance? Is there a different motor or is it just a different speed lock because on the alibaba page it says that the maximum climbing of the ordinary version of the MCM4 is 35° and of the MCM4 HS version is 28°. I´m just asking because for me it doesnt make sense to buy the none HS version because they are completly the same units but with having a different speed limitation. Has anyone made experience with one of these? I would really apprechiate any answer. Chiiter PS: Sorry for my bad english; if you dont understand something please tell me and I will try my best explaining it. Edit: Does anyone know how it is with the german customs/duty if I order one of these?
  14. Long time lurker first time poster........! Well after following the release of the Uniwheel I got to spend 5mins which was not enough time..! I ride day to day a Ninebot E+ and I bloody love it but with it being a company shrouded by smoke and mist and slight of hand as much as I love the bot I hate not knowing what is coming from these guys... what the bloody firmware is going to do or what is updated with each release... Then you have the fact they release a model 2 months later there is a newer model... Which is faster goes further etc etc... My bugbear is not knowing and not being able to make educated decision on my next purchase..! Which brings me to Uniwheel which I came across on facebook of all places and have followed them with eagerness... I like the fact these guys are in the UK maybe summit to do with project 42? and seem to have a passion for electric unicycles, And after reading a few press releases started to get a little excited.. I signed up to there website for updates signed up to facebook, twitter...blah blah blah. Then I found out they were doing a beta!!!! but alas it got delayed and the next thing i knew it got canceled in fact I am unsure if it did get delayed but it did get canceled and I didn't find out it was canceled until I email one of the team..... To say I was gutted would be a understatement.. I wanted to try this unicycle I wanted to help build the product I wanted to be part of a community of a uk unicycle group.. But the most annoying thing was the lack of communication from them. It felt like Ninebot . Right which brings me to now.. I had a bit of a moan on facebook about the beta being canceled and got invited to the gadget show to have a demo and a chat... I had about 5mins max on the wheel so can't give a proper review what I can say is I liked it alot i liked the weight the safety features the auto off feature is killer and a quick demo of this proves to me this is going to be one of the features on uniwheels that we can't live without but never really notice (apple fingerprint unlock). You ride upto some steps flip the pedals up the wheel goes to sleep get to the top drop the peddles and it's ready to go... brilliant feature!! and I reckon a overlooked one which will be the norm on all wheels soon.. The lights/reversible light (it knows which way your riding) was only seen in daylight! and in fairness from a distance it did catch my eye, Would it work at night I'm yet to try but I think it would, could it guide you home... I don't know. I didn't get to see the app at play I tried to sneak a look but was to slow... Lol... So after spending the smallest amount of time with the guys and asking questions!!! I am filled with more questions. I did ask about the battery size and kilometers out of single charge but was told the batteries are being upgraded or bigger batteries were on the way. I also asked if the battery could be charged out of the unit? yes but we have not fully developed the charger yet..!. I also asked about the motor and yes it may be upgraded.... So what is the the upgrade path? How much are the batteries going to cost? Are we looking to the ninebot way of things? Are these add ons going to be premium?... I wanted to chat to the guys further but they were busy and rushed the gadget show was rammed for a everyday unicyclist maybe they should hold a open day for us because it was not the best area or setting.... great wheel if not perfect YET....
  15. Shutdowns generally end like this and are as painful as this looks. Notice how her feet are in space and can't push against anything to break the fall. If, like me, you ride slower than you can run, overleans and other mishaps can be recovered by stepping off but the physics is different in a shutdown and you can't just step off. It is like this. This guy demonstrates the technique for an unpowered dismount. From the moment of unbalance he is falling but he lifts his knee quickly enough to get his foot forward under his body and uses the forward momentum to lift him like a pole vaulter. He knows it's coming and the physics is not opposite to what he is expecting so a shutdown for you is more difficult than for him. My four ended in more pain than any other mishap. On many wheels battery protection has been prioritised over rider protection which can lead to a shutdown without warning. Wheels designed this way and fitted with low quality batteries can shut down at any time but even with good batteries they become dangerous as the batteries age. A rider is only likely to be aware of a rare and mysterious catastrophic failure on a wheel that was for a long time safe. Early battery replacement with good cells will avoid shutdowns or the battery can be modified. The graph below for an Airwheel X8 shows published battery data overlaid with testing data of an aging cell X (black), damaged cells X (grey) and a generic battery with different, damaged cells X (blue). The discharge rate for the X tests was 0.2 amps. The aging cells were still able to sustain a voltage above the tilt back/warning voltage long enough to warn a rider but the damaged cells went from above the warning voltage to below the shutdown voltage too quickly. The generic battery had a shutdown voltage higher than the warning voltage, making it unsuitable for this Airwheel X8 from new. A longer version of this summary is published elsewhere.
