  1. Helmet info and opinion is scattered all over the forum, mostly in thread derailments, which I categorically deny having anything to do with, ok, maybe a little,. ALRIGHT! IT'S ALWAYS ME. HAPPY NOW? Please feel free to add your thoughts and recommendations about all things helmet related. So here's what I bought: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01L6SS4FW/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and why: 1. its road legal, and therefore safer than a bicycle helmet. 2. it's matt black like my wheel, so it goes with anything. 3. I can wear gogg
  2. I've had already some minor incidents with people since I started EUCing, this includes cars, bicycles and pedestrians (never motorcycles). The incidents range from people simply not paying attention to just plain a-holes that purposely pushed me (people), threaten me by coming at me or closing me forcing me to stop (cars and bicycles). This morning some guy thought it would be fun to push me and try to steal my Tesla. This ended with him receiving a good lesson. Hopefully he's learned that he shouldn't mess with people looking like robocop As you've guessed, I'm looking for a camera
  3. Recently I succeeded in converting a friend to the EUC religion! As a good preacher, I am helping him choosing the EUC and the gear Now we are looking at full face helmets and I am struggling to justify my decision of buying a TSG Pass... Well, the reason I bought it is because I read in one thread here many good things about it (concerning safety) AND I found it on sale during the last Black Friday (It is an outstanding helmet and I even forget I am wearing it!) My friend would like to know if he should go with a similar model (not on sale though) or one of the MTB/DH helmets also ment
  4. I'm upgrading my EUC to a 30+ mph model soon. I also need to upgrade my current cheap-o bike helmet to something that will protect my face. Not that I have a modeling career, but I'd simply prefer to not have my jaw wired shut due to a face plant at 20-30 mph. So, in the interest of safety, I'm planning on getting fully geared up. Unlike some of you that are able to drop $300+ on a sweet, glossy, carbon fiber brain bucket, I'm looking for something to get started keeping a budget in mind, but still being safe (read value here). After reviewing existing threads on this, I haven't found the
  5. What happened: So I was riding after the rain. The speed was about 30km/h. I saw a small pothole, filled with water. "Nah, a pothole, I'll manage. :-)" Boy I was wrong! Hidden underneath the water was the truth: This wasn't a normal pothole, it was a Fucking Assassin Pothole From Hell! About 1ft deep. I didn't fall from the wheel, it just changed trajectory. What followed was 1s of death wobble, followed by a faceplant. First time my helmet was scratched. And first dislocation in my life. What went well: Helmet - I banged my head harder than ever before in my life. My che
  6. My helmet mounted camera project is complete, and so far it is working well. I used a little better display and battery pack, but it still came in around $50. Helmet Cam Pics.docx
  7. Bonsoir je suis un utilisateur de giroroue. En ce moment ma giroroue ne cesse de sifflé et refuse de rouler, je ne sais pas où trouver de l’aide sur la plaque de ma giroroue est marqué : JA 4008046080 c’est la seul référence que je vois. Je suis de bruxelles capitale merci de me répondre si quelqu’un sais où m’orienter pour aller dépanner ma giroroue. merci d’avance
  8. Safety is important so I bought a new helmet a Bell Super 3R. This helmet provides a technology called MIPS that helps absorbs blows to your head :-)
  9. Full face helmets have been a topic of discussion here of late and for good reason given the increased risk of a full on face-plant that riding an EUC presents above and beyond that of almost any other mode of transportation. As part of buying protective gear for my new EUC I ordered two different full face MIPS enhanced bicycle helmets made by reputable brands; the Bell Super 3R and the Giro Switchblade. Over the course of a week or so I have been gathering my thoughts on them. I wanted to share what I have learnt and felt over that time in the hope it helps others when making this expe
  10. Inspired by the full face helmet comparison between the Bell Super 3R and the Giro Switchblade, I almost bought the Switchblade. That was until I found a report from a downhill MTB rider in the UK who had a fall and a pretty bad face impact with a rock that caused the chin guard to separate from the helmet. That was my major concern about helmets with detachable chin guards. I don't see a reason why I would ever consider taking the chin guard off anyway but it leaves a systemic vulnerability to the helmet. So I went on trying to find something that was airy as the Bell Super 3R (I am rid
  11. hey riders, a few hours ago I flew right across a hood going approx 10-15kph on my wheel. A car driver crossed the bicycle lane turning right into a shopping center without giving a second thought to me. Luckily I wore almost full protection (no helmet!) and only my wrist guards got scratched. The wheel came to a halt running into a hedge. did you get in familiar situations? I can only guess some inattentive drivers mistake EUC riders for pedestrians. The accident happened in daylight, though for me this is the final wake up call to always wear my full face downhill hel
  12. Amazon currently has steep discounts on four colours of the Super 3R large helmets with removable chinguard and GoPro mount. These helmets are not downhill-rated. Matte Emerald/ Retina Sear $149.90 with free shipping in the US (Prime membership not required) Matte Cobalt/Pearl $160.95 with free shipping in the US (Prime membership not required) (with nice Kiwi silver fern on the visor ) Matte Emerald Joy $160.95 with free shipping in the US (Prime membership not required) Matte Red/Marsala $160.95 with free shipping in the US (Prime membership not required) (nice brain spla
  13. Hi all! I joined this forum in hope to get some insight on why accidents happen with electric unicycles. I have no experience with them and am doing a little project on whether electric self-balancing devices, motorized skateboards, etc. should be legalised in public areas (in Switzerland) or not. So, here are my questions: 1. Whenever you had an accident, which category would you place yourself in? (It would be helpful if you could shortly state what happened as well) A. self-inflicted, no one else included B. self-inflicted, other people included (e.g. lost balance in public
  14. Are there certain types that protect more surface area than others? Drug store therapist wrist braces seems to cover more area but do they protect the hard fall? Or should we use products designed for a specific sport, like snow boarding etc? Some of the wrist guards have splints in them. Is that a better choice? Interested to know what are you all wearing for wrists? Links to products would be awesome.
  15. Tonight when I get home from work I'll be picking up a set of shiny new shells for my EUC, and since it's a color change (from black to white) I'll obviously need a new helmet as well! So I started looking around on the electric internet and stumbled upon this beaut: http://lovelustfashionbeautyromance.tumblr.com/post/157687223404 So what do you say? Should I buy it? Anyone got this helmet?
  16. Apart from the basic safety protection during the ride, Airwheel C5 smart helmets is more popular with the young who are fond of selfie and willing to share their daily photos with their kin and kith. Under the selfie-obsessed culture, Airwheel is soon catching on to those young men and women. One key to capture, Airwheel C5 best motorcycle helmet is coupled with 150°large view, in pursuit of blockbuster’s range of vision. 150°view-shed accompanying camera enables riders to take pictures or video. Keeping records of riding scenery with one key to control, C5 presents a supreme and impeccable
  17. For a few months I wanted to buy myself a mountain bike helmet, and I just bought a Bell helmet, since several of my wheeler friends had one and I liked its lightness. They come with a GoPro bracket on top, so I decided to design a mount to hold 2 bike lamps, one facing the front and the other the back, in order to be seen when riding at night. It clips on the GoPro bracket, no screw needed, and leaves the microUsb charging port accessible: Here are the lights: http://www.decathlon.fr/set-vioo-clip-300-noir-id_8346518.html Each offer several modes: still or blinking, and 2
  18. There's been lots of discussion on injuries and wearing protection, especially as of late. Maybe it's BMS failure, maybe the wheel caught a rock, but it seems that faceplants are inevitable. Please add to the vote! Perhaps this could people decide on a riding speed they're comfortable with, and how much protection to wear. There's no right or wrong answer -- except the honest truth! (Your answers are anonymous.) Thanks for your help! Speaking of bailing off EUCs at high speed, on this thread, @csmyers caught his highly-skilled high speed bailout roll on video, @Gimlet suggests ridi
  19. I strongly agree with wearing protective clothing. Maybe falling off is unavoidable at times however reducing the chances of injury are easy. I have put together a range of protective clothing in cooperation with some Australian partners that I will ship from Australia. Australia has been a leader in crash protection for a long time, haha we needed it. For road/concrete surfaces you will completely kit yourself out for about USD 600.00 (dirt protective clothing is a little cheaper) (Helmet, gloves, boots, Kevlar pants, Kevlar jacket (even have a hoody that looks normal even
