EUC

  1. Just got my first EUC, the V8f, and can get on and off fairly easy, and trundle along around 10mph after a few practice sessions. I have the speed lock still in place, so 16 mph, and after running the battery down to 40/45%, I thought I was getting vertigo going down a straight stretch about 10mph, which I think was a mild form of tilt back. My question is, would this be happening at a higher speed if I was unlocked to the full 22mph ( is it proportional to the capped speed), or would I get the tilt back around 10mph either way? It'll be awhile before I can test it myself, I'm getting wobbles
  2. I'm not sure when I first saw an EUC, but it was on youtube and I just kept watching more and more videos. Then I found this site and finally after a few weeks of watching and earning some side cash to appease the Mrs I bought my starter wheel!! It'll be arriving tomorrow, and I am so pumped to start learning! I must have watched a dozen beginner videos and read others' experiences on the forums. today I got my helmet and guards, so I hopefully won't hurt myself. https://imgur.com/gallery/4qT9oGB
  3. Good day all, I am selling my 2018 KS-14S 840Wh/800W black wheel. My story follows... In 2018 I moved to Charleston, SC, and as a hair-brained idea to beat traffic here in the city, I purchased a King Song 14S to ride to work from EWheels, along with a fast charger. Good thing too, as the stock chargers for King Song wheels tend to get hotter than you might expect. I have also done some recreational riding in my off time and have enjoyed this wheel as an intriguing, head-turning way to get around. However, recently, I rode to work, and took a low-speed tumble as I caught one
  4. Hi all. Today i got my Gotway Teala V2 I am new to riding electric unicycle so today i just watched u-stride beginner videos. I am a electric scooter retailer but always been intrigued learning how to ride an EUC lockdown has just given me the time to focus on learning. My plan of attack is to practice drills for 1 hour a day for a week and then attempt going for a ride is this fron your experience a practical approach? I created this post to say shout out to all the fellow euc riders liking what i see of the community so far. I am from Sittingbourne Kent and wante
  5. I got an Euc as a gift for my birthday and would love to learn how to ride it with out crashing it I live in Albany NY but willing to travel too
  6. Not my content. This video helped to influenced me grab my own wheel. Casual ride with some nice music. Slydogstroh primarily has Onewheel content, but is now starting to ride an EUC.
  7. Hi all! New to the forum & new to the hobby/lifestyle:) I'm looking to pick up my first wheel and I've found a Z6 and a V8, both second hand for around the same price...what do you guys think I should go for? Open to any and all advice! (Based in the UK, weight 85kgs, use will be mainly to commute 6miles round trip)
  8. Hi, EUCers! Incoming newbie here seeking advice on whether it is advisable to get the Ninebot One Z10 as my first and only wheel. I have some skateboarding experience from my teen days but that's a whole lifetime ago. I am in Malaysia where Ninebot has an official presence and from whom I would purchase the Z10, so I believe support won't be as spotty as I see it is in US/EU. Use case: I lie to myself that it will be commuting/mixed use but the truth is it will most likely be used purely for joyriding with some gratuitous errand runs thrown in to justify the purchase. I have bo
  9. Hey wheelers, LA is riding and rolling on closed streets!! Almost a thousand RSVPs so far. I'm going. RSVP using this link: http://www.ciclavia.org/ciclavia_culver_city_meets_mar_vista_palms If we want to meet as a group then reply to this post. I'll be riding the Metro rail there.
  10. Hi everybody! I'm new to this forum, but from spending a couple of hours reading different posts, it seems like a very devoted one. Awesome! I am looking for my first ECU. I have previous experience driving Segway PT a couple of times with great success and enjoyment (pretty fast learning curve for that one). For a long time I have been interested in ECUs, and now that it has been allowed in Denmark, I really want to try it out. Here are some information that hopefully can help you provide me with some of your helpful advice: About me: Height: 180 cm Weight: 100
  11. Hello all! I have never ridden an electric unicycle before and am wanting too start riding! I live in a steep mountainous town (some hills are 15°) and wanting an easy transportation type to get me between town/work/home. Here are some things I would want in the electric unicycle. At least 15° hill climb, be able to ride at least 5km on steep hills, be able to go around 15-20km/h, and not easily broken (since I will definitely crash a lot) and be able to carry me (150lbs). I have been looking at buying an EUC for more than a year now and I have finally decided to put down the money
  12. Hej Hope somone can help me deside wich Teamgee model to buy. Found a realy good deal at gearbest.com, but all the specs look compleatly the same to me. Loking to buy either the T1, G1 or F1B. And the deal runs out this friday. Thx
  13. This is a general guide for beginners. It is pier to pier advice from a fellow enthusiast. Not responsible for results. Post is likely to be edited. Can I learn ? If you have normal movement of your legs and feet. If you can walk a miles (1.6km) in gusts of 20 mph ( 32km/h) winds without assistance. If you are strong enough to withstand falling to the ground and don't mind bumps and bruises then yes you can learn to ride an electric unicycle. Riding an electric unicycle combines the skills of walking and riding a bicycle. When you walk forward you lean forward first then move
  14. Hi, I bought Koowheel K5 hoverboard for my niece. She is 8 years old and about 25kg (55 lbs). Often when she gets on the hoverboard, it is not activated. It's like no one standing on it. Are there any necessary settings for this age and weight? Whan adult stands on it lights on boths side are on and everything is OK.
  15. Hello all! 25 year old first time rider here. Doesn't seem to be a lot of younger guys on this forum, but I'm very glad I found this community. My backstory: I originally bought a Segway Minipro last week. After riding it for about 2 days, I already felt limited by the speed (10 mph when you're trying to travel more than a mile feels pretty slow). I actually ran into someone on the street who was riding an electric unicycle. Someone at my work also rides one so I decided to try one out. I found this forum this past Friday, ordered a King Song 14D on Monday, and it arrived today (Wedn
  16. Hello! I bought a "used" Ninebot One S2 just 12.30.17. It said "Milage: 2.6km" in the app and had one noticable scratch near the handle. So I got an almost brand new thingy for 330EUR. I watched a few How-to-vids on U-Tube of cause.... I made my first tries on that evening on the shoulder of my wife after attaching a luggage-belt to the handle and turning the handle-shut-off off. Next day I made some exercizes along a nearby wall and my first freehand trials. Got no further than a few meters. Whilst doing that I had more than doubled the milage. Dunno how the seller had g
  17. Good afternoon all! Brand spanking new to Unicycles and E-Unicycles to begin with, I am on the fence after researching and mostly looking at specs and safety. I will be traveling a few miles to a Bus Stop to and from my home as I commute to work, I am looking at a two wheel setup. I am leaning toward the Inmotion V3 Pro or the Swagtron Any ideas which would be a better fit for my needs and easier to learn with? Im kinda concerned ill fall in LOVE and have to upgrade to a more expensive wheel soon! I plan also to use this as transportation going
  18. I am looking for an entry level EUC & would like some help to choose one. I am a senior, weigh 200lbs (90kg), live in southern British Columbia where we have some nice weather but we do get rain. Some of the wheels I've looked at are, in no particular order, Segway One or Ninebot One, (seem to be the same unit), King Song 14D, One other possibility is a used Gotway ACM 1300wh. I know the Gotway ACM may be more than a beginner unit but the weight capacity is quite a bit more than the others. With the others if I wear a back pack with a few items in it I'm at the weight limit of the unit.
  19. Hi Everyone, first time posting, new to EUC's and new to electric rideables in general. I first started off on a huge rabbit hole into electric skateboards. That market is awash and rife with issues, but as I was getting close to selecting one, I saw a FabTrav video with the Gotway Monster in it, and I had to lift my jaw off my desk. That led me to a second rabbit hole into EUC's, which is a much smaller place by the way, and I think I've got my choice nailed. I think I will go with a Tesla. The reason being that it's the newest, and while I am not one to chase specs, the market
  20. Hello all! I have never ridden an electric unicycle before and am wanting too start riding! I live in a steep mountainous town (some hills are 25%) and wanting an easy transportation type to get me to work. Here are some things I would want in the electric unicycle. At least 20% hill climb, be able to ride at least 2km on steep hills, be able to go around 20km/h, be able to ride in slick conditions (is this possible?) and not easily broken (since I will definitely crash a lot) and be able to carry me (150lbs). I am also 16. I have been looking at buying the Inmotion V8 but I have hea
  21. As some of you know I have spent the last 5 days learning to ride EUCs for the first time. I chronicled my progress here. I want to summarize some of my thoughts about my experiences here in the general forum as I see there are at least 3 new riders waiting for wheels, I think at least two of them are getting the same one I learned on - a KS 16s. I will try not to repeat too much stuff that is covered in the riding mechanics sticky. 1) I did a lot of inline skating, snowboarding, martial arts, etc. I still fell all over the place when I first started. But when it got better, it got better
  22. Hello, I would really appreciate some opinions whether the One S1 is good for beginners. My crazy sister has always talked about hoverboards, but recently she has found some article about unicycles and particularly about the Segway https://buyerscaptain.com/segway-ones1-review/ So me and my parent we are thinking to surprise her for her birthday. The problem is that I have seen some horrible videos of people falling from this things and I wonder if it's good for beginners? Thank you in advance guys!
  23. I received my V5F+ yesterday and have had a lot of difficulty getting starting learning this thing. I've watched several videos and tutorials and did a lot of research prior to its arrival, and am still struggling to get on the thing comfortably. I've seen a few showing a person practicing by putting one foot on the pad and balancing while slowly bringing the other foot up, but this put tremendous weight against the calf of the mounted foot and is a bit painful. After 2 days and hours of practicing, I still cannot mount without it hurting my calf and wobbling all over the place trying to ge
  24. Hi all, First I'll introduce myself before I just barge in. My name is Michael Hensen and live in Almere, the Netherlands. 46 years, self employed software engineer and love to go paragliding abroad. I guess that will do :-) I became interested in EUC as I saw somebody zooming past me while I was riding my city bike. What the hell was that ?! I started searching the Internet and found what is should be. After watching numerous video's I came to the conclusion this is not a kids toy so I wouldn't embarrass myself if I should ride it. Started looking around and found me a Ninebot
