Okay everyone... You have been (relentlessly) asking for it, so here is your chance to give us some final (pre-production) feedback on our EUC Bodyguard for the Gotway Nikola! Please note that the photos below show a prototype only - which has been hand cut and is not the final version. So, what sort of feedback do we want... Tell us what you think about the LED cut-outs - There are 100+ holes in the cover shown here. The challenge we have is finding the balance between showing off your LED and maintaining the integrity of what is a protective cover. We are thinking the cover would be a bit more robust if we were to reduce the number of holes a little - So would you all prefer a few less LED holes (possibly increasing the robustness) or leave it as it is (because you need to light up the world)? This Bodyguard has had a zipper added to facilitate the use of the scorpion trolley handle, but this does add a bit to the cost of the Bodyguard. Would riders be interested in having the choice of "with zip" (and trolley handle access) or "without zip" (meaning you can't use the trolley with the cover fitted)? This is to see if anyone out there doesn't use their trolley and would be happy to save a few dollars. And what about the colours... is there a preference for the solid black side, or the multi-colour version? Or would people prefer a reversed colour-scheme (like the 16X) either with a solid or multi-colour side? Of course, any other feedback will also be welcomed too. And, to save you asking... We will be putting a pre-order page up on our website shortly. Once we have locked in the production version.
MODERATORS: Please be kind, while there is a little bit of promotion in this post, the primary objective is to get input from riders, to allow us to offer the best solution possible for everyone. This is a call to all current MSX owners... We would like some assistance from you, please... If you don't want to read all of this post, skip down to the RED paragraph. As you may have seen (or not) Roll.nz has just expanded our EUC range to to include a selection of the Gotway wheels. This allows us to cater to the local (New Zealand) EUC market, but it also allows us to now develop EUC Bodyguards for those Gotway wheels. BTW - thanks to all of you that have been messaging us constantly to provide these - you can all stop now though, please. Anyway, we have started with the Monster... Yes it is a niche wheel, but as it is fairly void of features it was an easier choice and as it is rather fragile, protection is more important. And we are now working through the final testing before making it available! BTW - anyone interested in a Monster EUC Bodyguard, please don't message us to ask us to let you know when it is available (which is really difficult) - instead, subscribe to our Facebook or Instagram, as everything will be announced there first. Now we are working on the MSX! Which is where we would appreciate some feedback... We only have a few units available to work with, but we want to make sure that we cater to most of the units out there. Based on some previous work we have done with a Tesla, we understand that the LED lighting is not always consistent, so we would love it if all of you would be able to show us your MSX LED. I don't want anyone to spend a bunch of time on this, all we would like to see is your LED lights lit up from the front and the back - mainly to see where they are (and where they aren't). Those happy to help, please either comment back on this post, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org To finish... those of you wanting a Nikola Bodyguard, they will be challenging but are also the next wheel on our list! Again, please don't ask us to let each of you know when they are available - instead, subscribe to our Facebook or Instagram, as everything will be announced there first.
So here's a question for you all... I am currently testing a new model EUC Bodyguard on a (new to me) model wheel. Today we were trying some hill climbing - to ensure the Bodyguard remains secure, enhances grip, looks cool, et cetera. And it performed really well, as you can see here; BUT, the telemetry that I grabbed for a part of the ride could be considered a little disturbing; As mentioned above, the Monster I was riding is new to me, so I have no knowledge of what I should be expecting... What I can say is that with the EUC Bodyguard fitted, it was very easy to get to about 30 mph (50 km/h) while riding up a significant hill. Remember too, that this is a 22" wheel. I was a little surprised at just how easy it was. And then I saw the graph above... I need to run more tests before I can make an informed comment on how the EUC Bodyguard contributes, but from what I do see, it is very easy (too easy) to "coax" some very high current out of this (84 v) wheel. So it would be great to get some feedback from other Monster riders (@Jrkline "Wheel Whisperer" / @Marty Backe and others)... Are these "normal" current values? What is the magic number at which I should start to be concerned? And what is the best way to continue and validate my testing (preferably without dying)?
Hey everyone, We just wanted to let you know that we have just added a "marketplace" to the Roll.nz website! Here is the propaganda that comes with the page... To start off we have a few EUC Bodyguards listed... One that's a classic, one that's dented and one that has Grip Pads even. For those in New Zealand, you can see these in our (domestic only) NZ Marketplace. And for the rest of the world, there is the International Marketplace, which excludes the NZ taxes that you don't need to pay (but any other local taxes are your responsibility).
