  1. So it finally happened. One of my hobbies got the better of me. Two weeks ago, I was riding my King Song 18XL on my lunch break. I was on a park road that leads to the bike trail. The speed limit was 25mph and there was a car in front of me. He started slowing down (probably checking me out), until we were doing about 10mph. So I decided to pass. I leaned into it and as I pulled up alongside him the wheel beeped once and turned off. I was probably up to about 25mph. Usually, if I get too aggressive, the wheel beeps a few times and tilts me back. This time it just quit. Next thing I know I
  2. I had a crash at 30km/h because the InMotion V8 switched itself off. This is clearly comprehensible and reproducible. I broke my upper arm several times and am now unfortunately disabled for the rest of my life. The arm is only half movable, as is the shoulder. But I am glad that I am still alive. The company InMotion is not interested in my crash and not in the defective device, which only ran about 80 kilometers, so it is almost new. The communication was aborted by InMotion, they don't even want the defective device back for examination. A warranty service was rejected. Who made sim
  3. EDIT 12/2018 There were humorous certificates embedded with these posts but the links have timed out over time. Sorry. I think it's high time we "Planters of the Face" be recognised for our achievements, and contributions to the merriment of our fellow EUCers by sharing, in excruciating detail, our pain and injury, in the futile hope that they might not follow in our face foot steps. towards that end I have created this FACE PLANT WALL OF INFAMY. If you believe you deserve a certificate for you contributions to face plantism, pop me a private message, simply stating
  4. Hi, Here goes a topic that I think is definitely worth posting about. My partner is a physical therapist, and after I had a minor knee-tendon injury during the first few days of riding, she mentioned that warming up and stretching wouldn’t be a bad idea for EUC riding, since to a great extent, it involves maintaining the same posture for extended periods of time, which can lead to muscle, tendon and ligament fatigue and stiffness, which in turn, makes one much more prone to non-impact injuries in the event of falling/jumping off the wheel, or can potentially make them worse. For example,
  5. I see many videos of unprotected riders, as well as riders who wear differing amounts of protective armor depending on the ride they're planning. What's the minimum safe amount for a low speed ride? I recommend this as a test. Take your wheel outside on the pavement. Stand next to a wall. Lean the back of the wheel against the wall. Don't power up your wheel. Mount your wheel then gently push off. Try to hold your balance, but feel free to fall forward and try to catch yourself when you no longer can. This is what falling off a wheel would feel like at no speed. Any forward mo
  6. I hope this is a useful poll to learn more about which protection gear forum members typically use and how serious injuries from EUCing are.
  7. I had a quick trawl through the site and have created a tongue-in-cheek "EUC Injury" Bingo card based on rider's injuries and experiences. We are a rather accident prone bunch! EUC-INJURY-BINGO-CARD.pdf Is anyone close to shouting Bingo? I'm over halfway there. There's obviously a serious side to this - EUC riding does have inherent risks. Please consider safety gear, check your wheel regularly and ride within the limits of yourself and your wheel!
  8. so i was in a group ride, i was riding next to a newer rider who a few weeks ago got his ks14s 850wh and we were riding slowly and carefully with a few other riders. and towards end of the day he still had about 50 percent battery and we decided to ride a little down the road at moderate speed. and his wheel simply, cut out and he faceplanted and his hands were bleeding he hit his head and the wheel rolled to the side i helped him but he was hurting so we checked the wheel... everything fine and 50 percent battery and it cut out at about 25 kph (he is 90 kg) bu
  9. Hi guys, Looking for some advice really. Had my first crash today... Which I knew I would and was inevitable really. So firstly, I've set my tiltback to 42kmh using the Gotway app and disabled the first alarm. I was riding in a straight line, in a tarmac carpark and my Msuper decided it was going to chuck me off. I didn't hit any bumps, neither did my alarms go off. I didn't feel the tilt back come into play either so I was wondering if anyone knows the answer as to why I came off? I was sure the tilt back would let me know when I was getting too fast? The only thing
  10. Hi everyone! I was reading your forum from time to time recently, finally got to introduce myself write something. I got myself my first euc (is this a proper way to abbreviate?) - V8 a few months ago. I learned to ride it in like 3 sessions of around 20 minutes and felt pretty confident after that. I do snowboarding and amateurish ice skating from time to time in winter, I think that helped. It was very tiring and sweaty to learn (even when it was cool weather yet - 5 to 10 Celsius... and I'm in a bad physical shape, slightly overweight - 183 cm\95 kg). Fun fact, I learned to r
  11. Is there a way to keep this topic uncluttered? I think the forum should come up with some essential topics with minimal content that is considered essential. For example: -Protective Gear. -Learning to ride. -Learning to Fall. https://youtu.be/tUJwUUAiT4o https://youtu.be/gV2xiTodph8 -How to prevent cut-outs.
  12. 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.
  13. Crash! Bang! Mamils! Why serious injuries are on the rise among cyclists http://news360.com/article/379581702
  14. I was practicing balancing on my KS 14C in the garage, and in the process, lost my balance and had to quickly bail. I know that EUC's briefly become homicidal if you bail on them at a certain angle. Not wanting the unicycle to go running off and smashing things in the garage, I grabbed it in a panic. However, I ended up grabbing it by the wheel, and my fingers got sucked into the wheel well. I tried to pull out, but the torque was too great, and I had to grind it out until the speed limit shutoff kicked in. So it looks like I have a nasty case of road rash, and will take about 2 months to full
  15. After my first week of riding, I've been off of my KS-14C for three days now. I knew I bruised the inside of my right calf a few times, but kept riding anyway, even with the swelling. On my last tumble (slick shoes) the peddle really smacked my right shin! Between the black 'n blue and new red battle scars, the painful lesson learned is - take time to break into the sport slowly so it doesn't break you. Are there any suggestions for endurance training for new riders?
  16. 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
  17. 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
