  2. Hi there! (I checked a few threads but I was not able to find an answer to my question). I had a Kingsong 16S (V1) for about three months. My first wheel. And I loved it. After the purchase, I've heard about the new 16S (V2) with a few upgrades that include the lift sensor (that is IMO very useful). So I've decided to sell it immediately to buy the new version. I sold it for good money and the upgrade to 16S (V2) should cost me just a few bucks. BUt now I'm in doubt about this purchase. :/ Should I go with 16S (V2) or the recent revision of Gotway Tesla (V2) that includes the lift sensor too? What would be the pros and cons of these two wheels? I know the price is not exaclty the same but they are close. What would you be your suggestion? Thanks so much!
  3. KS14M 800W 174WH, upgradeable to 348WH AFAICS 20 km/h, goes up to 30 km/h with 2 batteries So this new KS14M model seems to replace the old KS14B (quick swappable batteries). Looks like unfortunately they couldn't implement a way to once again make this model quick-swappable battery-wise, so this model seems to be targeted as a cheap price point wheel / travel wheel.

  4. Hello readers and riders! I apologize for my English, if it has any errors. First of all, let me introduce myself: My name is Ilya, I'm the iOS Developer since 2009. Also I have Ninebot One E since April 2015. Then I decided to combine these skills into my new app - DarknessBot. The application is available only for iOS 9.0 and higher. Ninebot haven't presented any official APIs yet, so I cooperated with the GyroMetrics developer - Paco Gorina (special thanks for helping with Ninebot BLE protocol) The application from the active EUC owners! It supports the following models: ► Ninebot One (C, C+, E, E+, P) ► Inmotion (V3, V3C, V3S, V3Pro, V5, V5+, V5F, V8, R1, R1N, R1S, R1S, R1T, R1AP, R1CF, R1EX, R2, R2N, R2S, R2EX, L6) ► Gotway (MCM2, MCM4, ACM, MSuper V1/V2/V3, Monster) ► KingSong (14, 16, 18) Features: ◉ Modify tiled interface that you can customize ◉ Displaying all available metrics through Bluetooth LE: ► Current speed ► Maximum speed ► Total mileage ► Remaining mileage (depending of rider's weight, the battery charging cycles, and weather conditions) ► Total runtime ► Battery level ► Temperature of the controller (not for all models) ► Power ► Voltage ► Longitudinal and transverse tilt (not for all models) ◉ Logging and displaying graphs of metrics (up to a month) ◉ Record video from a camera with a sensor display ◉ Changing the riding mode (not for all models) ◉ Changing maximum speed (experimental) ◉ Changing the maximum speed on limited mode (experimental) ◉ Changing lock mode (not for all models) ◉ Changing limited speed mode (not for all models) ◉ Compass and weather forecast ◉ Apple Watch support ◉ HealthKit Integration What next: ◉ One more thing Beta test 1.2 ◉ Support Ninebot One A1/S2 Application for free, but it has a few paid functions. So I provide 40 promocodes for this forum. Promocodes Download from Appstore
  5. Finally got down to making an adaptor for my impending KS16X As I come from an escooter background, I have a large collection of fast chargers. They usually use the 3 pin GX16-3 connector. Made an adaptor to use my fast charger with the Lenovo connector. It was really rough finding this at the electronic shops in Singapore. I mated it with a voltmeter that is calibrate-able so that the output reading is as close to 84.0V Here is the reading with the 5A 72V(84v) charger attached Some of my voltmeters and adaptors. You can see the gx16-3 to gx16-4 adaptor at the back. I use that to charge my Gotway MSX. Can’t wait for the KS16X to be here!
  6. Grüß Euch / Hi All, Deutsch: Ich würde mich freuen, von anderen Einradsüchtigen in Österreich zu hören, und vor allem wo und welche trails ihr so befährt ! Ich werde von Zeit zu Zeit ebenfalls Fotos und Infos von netten EUC Touren posten, die ich gemacht hab. Postet in Englisch oder Deutsch, wie ihr wollt. English: I want to start an Austrian group. Feel free to post in English or German (I live during the week near the UN-City in Vienna, and spotted some EUC riders entering it, maybe they don't speak German). From time to time I'll post infos and fotos about nice EUC trails here in Vienna or in Styria, where I originally come from. Maybe others can do the same for the areas they live in. Cheers, HtG
  7. Bought new in July 2016. Have been used sparingly in the summer seasons, and in between those it has been stored with battery charged to about 60-70%. Upgraded in June 2017 with the improved pedals and a black casing (it was bought as white, and the inner casing is still white but that is apparently not visible without disassembly). Have been used with various shell protection such as foam, tape etc (see the pictures). Including a purchase receipt, original packaging, charge doctor (see picture) and Linka Smart Bike Lock (German bluetooth lock with auto-unlock and a builtin siren upon someone bumping the wheel, estimated value about €100). Tire was reinforced with slime about a year ago. The stand could be included or excluded per the buyers preference I am asking for €900 €750 for the entire package. +shipping if you want it shipped somewhere. Just contact me with any questions that you may have!
  8. I'm looking to purchase my first EUC and have a few questions on wheel size. I've ridden a friend's EUC a few times and think I'm ready to commit. Right now I have it narrowed down between the Kingsong 18XL and the Kingsong 16X. This is based on the following criteria in no particular order: Range of at least 30mi/50km Comfortable for 10-15mi commute (each way) Able to fit on a bus if the weather is bad (there is usually plenty of space available on the buses where I am, so it could share the seat next to me if necessary) Hill climbing (I live in the mountains so I need some torque to get up/down the hills) Off-road capable (I'd like to take this on some nearby trails that include some tree roots, bumps, drops, gravel, loose dirt, etc) Reliable (I've heard to stay away from the first few batches of a wheel while the kinks are worked out) Speed of at least 20mph/33kph From what I've gathered on my searches: Small wheels are best for: Hill climbs (smaller wheels have more torque since they require less energy to move one full rotation) Agility (less mass/inertia) Large wheels are best for: Commuting (the larger the wheel, the larger the bumps it can "ignore" or not feel) Long rides (larger surface area on the pavement feels "smoother") Gravel/Off-road bumpy terrain (aforementioned reasons ^^) Sorry for the long read, but here are my questions. How big of a difference in comfort is between an 18" and 16" wheels when commuting/off-roading, and how much of a torque difference between the two? Will the 16" be a noticeably better hill climber than the 18", or overheat as easily as the 18xl as @Marty Backe has shown in his videos? How much should I be worried about first/second batch issues with the 16X? TLDR; I want a wheel for commuting and off-road with good range and torque. What are the pro's/con's of a 16" over an 18" and how big of a difference between the two? Thanks in advance for the help and insights!
  9. Hi all There are some places still selling the batery pack for the kingsong KS-14b. This is an 16 cell pack (16 in serie) with 174wh that maybe can be used in other euc, so for 100€ doesn't look a bad value for the money if my assumption are correct. Can anyone tell me if this baterry pack as bms included? And what it is connected to the metal contacts? Thanks
  10. I got my 18S yesterday and the complaint I have with it is that unlike the 16S which pushes against my meaty calves... the 18S sits high so it pushes against the inside of my knees ... With less meat than the calves.. this is quite painful. And the only thing I seem to be able to do to lessen the pain is to ride with more bend in my knees to widen my legs out ... With this posture, any prolong period causes back to ache. Does anyone with 18S have this issue ? (pad pushes against your knees) If you do, what do you do to lessen the discomfort ? I tried putting on volleyball knee pads to cushion it against the EUC pads.. .but that just makes my knees even wider apart and feet farther positioned to the edge. I think if the pedals are wider.. this could allow me to move my knees away from the unit to lessen the pain.. but as it is.. I hardly have enogh room to stay on as it is. Strangely, my wife said she doesnt have this pain. May be its my boney knees. I dont know.
  11. Hello My name is Carl Irjala and I live here in the city of Kotka, which is near the Russian border. If you allow, I wish to start writing to you about my experiences as a brand new electric unicyclist. I'm a soaring pilot with several hundred landings behind me. So when I saw a video on YouTube that told that riding an EUC feels like flying I became instantly interested about it. So my first topic is about the experience of buying my first EUC and the learning process. The EUC brand is here in Finland so new that I had to search abroad to get reasonable information about it. My mother tongue is Swedish and Finnish. In those languages there is not enough information that would make me to buy an EUC. Luckily, I found this forum and the members' YouTube videos. Lots of sellers at the Internet do not communicates in English, so I was totaly dependent on the information you provide in this forum. Another matter that affected the choice of my first EUC was transport and tax costs. I have bought a lot of products directly from America and China, but sometimes the goods come with a shipping / duty surcharge that can be up to one hundred percent of the value of the product and sometimes not. So this makes the purchase a little risky. I found only one seller who provided clear information about shipping and taxation charges to Finland. After payment, it only took five days to get home the product from Poland (see image files). So in full, the whole process was quite easy. My next post will be a video about learning to ride the EUC. In that video you will see a whole new method how to do it. So, stay tuned on this topic. Kind regards Carl
  12. I recently came across some code for communicating with KS devices. I've always wanted an Android Wear app for my KS-16S, and now I've my own app that works for me. I still need to display a few things like distance, temp. and current. The app does not require a phone, as it communicates directly with the wheel. It's KingSong only for now. I'm asking my fellow EUC enthusiasts if any of you have Android Wear, and do you have an interest in such a thing. If there is sufficient interest, I can do the extra work to test this out on a few more watch form factors, add metric units, and publish to the Google Play Store (free of course). Long run, I may try to add more wheels (I have an InMotion, so that would likely be next). If not, I'll move on to another pet project Here's a screen cap (This is from my Ticwatch-E)
  13. I though it might be useful to have place to check what is latest firmware version. I just got version 1.09 updated as I post this, the update completed successfully. Edit: @US69poster this change log. V 1.09: 1. Added multi-RGB pattern, mode 1 is automotic mode2. Self-checking the match of firmware version and series number, if not match, the wheel will loose balanceV1.081. Automatic sensor calibration2. Avoid wheel freeze issue.

  15. Hello my friends! This question is for 18XL owners... Can you share with me the true range your 18XL can make? +Your weight? The temperature outside? Thank you a lot, it will help me a lot... Have a great day guys!
  16. Dear riders and KingSong representatives! Maybe somebody can help me to diagnose and understand what is the issue with KS-18L? You can see everything in the video: my EUC was charging and I just started to rub and wipe it with paper napkins, suddenly I heard regular beeps (every 2-3 seconds) and when I turned it on I saw unusual red LED indicators (1st and 9th from each side). The problem is floating, it's difficult to cause it again, but it happened already few times with my KS-18L. After turning off/on everything is OK and riding is normal without any troubles. Does anybody know what is the issue and what do that red LED indicators and regular beeps mean? videocompress-016-VID_20190323_150410.mp4
  17. I´m getting an exclamation mark in the app and when I click on it, this screen appears. Is there anybody outthere, who is able to translate this info? My chinese is a littly rusty
  18. GyroMetrics is a free application for logging data and controlling an EUC in a device independent way. See for an introduction. 9BMetrics worked with Ninebot and now it works with Ninebot, Gotway, Kingsong and InMotion. As I don't have all the wheels some support is better than others and all feedback is welcome. The application also uses the AppleWatch if available for showing information, starting/stopping recording and locking/unlocking the wheel or sounding the horn (in Kingsong), @Chriull has devloppend some GNUPLOT scripts for presenting the information which are vailable here. Also some Python generic scripts are available at following posts. First Gyrometrics version is 2.5 which has the following differences with 9BMetrics 2.4: - For Ninebot Users You may enable or disable speed limit from settings while connected You may lock / unlock wheel when connected From the watch you may lock / unlock the weel by doing hard press and selectiong the option in the menu - For KingSong Users Now horn works from the watch. Just a double tap in the center field and should play it - For InMotion Users (all beta features, sorry my accesibility is rare) Disabled serial number checking. Should connect with V8 Lock / Unlock may or may not work as explained for Ninebot Users - For everybody Python Scripts that work in Pythonista and in normal desktop environments (They work in the iPhone ) for plotting data directly from new .9bz archives. Will put them in the GyroMetrics topic Working in new features : Current visible in the watch, color shows direction Battery color will change to orange in phone and watch if battery level > 90% and current is < 0 Other features : Incremental saving - So if application crashes ypu don't loose all data Autocalibration of distance and speed
  19. Hi guys, I wish to disassemble my wheel because I have two loose screws on the shell. I also want to seal the wheel arch to make it really waterproof. I've made holes in the pads so I can remove sides easily. My firts question is how can I remove the top plate ? It seems that it can not slide because of the radiator and the bell mounted on it. Any advices ? I will upload more photos as I progress. Thanks.
  20. I’ve had my wheel a couple of weeks now and today after about an hour on the GenV charger set at 3A my wheel started beeping about once every 5 seconds. I unplugged it and waited a few minutes then plugged it back in and it continued charging without any issues. Any ideas why it was beeping?
  21. New King Song App is now available for iOS in the app store. Very blue, kinda like another popular EUC manufacturer app
  22. I bought a charge doctor for my kingsong ks16s, with a three pin plug at each end. I would like an adaptor so that the charge doctor can be used with gotway msuper x ( 4 pin plug ). Any idea where I can get one ( actually two, one at each end, I suppose ? ) without having to solder anything?
  23. First off I like both wheels and I am not here to tell you that one wheel is better that the other. There are strong opinions both ways and the people with those opinions are not crazy or finding faults where there are none. The truth is these wheels are very different. Switching from one wheel to the other shows obvious changes in reaction in you and the wheel. The following is observation, research and educated guessing. I could be wrong. Relatively Speaking: KingSong 18XL This wheel is very refined and uses advanced software. 1) The software allows a lower spike in amperage to achieve the same acceleration. Instead of one quick high spike In amperage it gives a longer burst of lower amperage. (Per correction time unit) 2) The software also aids the rider in creating acceleration. When you first lean on an XL the wheel hesitates to accelerate at first. It allows you to get in front of the wheel and then ramps up the power to catch you. When switching from the MSX to the XL this hesitation, dip and ramping up is very obvious to me. After a few seconds of adjusting to the wheel I think,”WOW!, This thing has pep!” You can roll and twist and throw yourself off balance and the wheel just catches you....... Untill you maneuver too quickly. It takes time for the wheel to catch up. This results in an unexpected jolt of force or a momentary loss of personal balance and pressure against the pedals. In the world of motor controls this action of going from a stop, rounding up to a steady acceleration then reducing the acceleration to a plateau of a steady speed is called the “S curve” Over all the system tends to give the rider a smoother more intuitive ride. It also gets more out of less. More mileage and great acceleration out of smaller board components. The one negative observation that I have found is that at high speed hitting a bump can set off a series of miscommunications. The hesitation, the lack of something to push on caused by a dip in the pedal that results in a rush of acceleration or braking that I did not intentionally request. This problem can usually be remedied by riding like a sane person. This wheel is best suited for people that enjoy the finer things like a smooth intuitive ride with options like speakers and lift handle cut off. It is less suited for people that say things like “ Hey! .. You want to race?” Or “ I bet I can jump over that missing man hole cover” MSuper X This wheel does not have the fancy software. It uses a larger more powerful board. Power saving and amp spike reduction be damned. You do not have the exaggerated S curve to get you going. When switching to the MSX from the XL most people (beginners especially) complain that it takes soooo much more pressure on the toes to move the thing. It is actually kinda sluggish! When you start to lean on the MSX the wheel immediately starts to compensate for your actions. This disallows you to lean forward making acceleration difficult. The wheel will not allow you to get off balance. The solution is to let yourself fall forward on the wheel without putting pressure on your toes. Then once you are leaning apply pressure to your toes. You could say that the XL has an automatic transmission ( the S curve) and the MSX has a clutch. ( you fall forward then put pressure on the toes. When switching from the MSX to the XL I forget and treat the XL like I would the MSX. I fall forward then apply pressure to my toes only to get a hesitation. I then apply more pressure fearing that I am going to fall on my face. By that time it takes off like a rocket. WOW! This thing has pep. The MSX requires more riding skills on your part and in exchange leaves the decisions to you. It does not guess your intentions or aid you in them. It remains indifferent. So witch is better? The XL is more refined with better fit and finish. More options like speakers, lift handle cut off, and it comes with a mud guard. It gives a more pleasant Intuitive ride at speeds below 25 mph. ( I love the thing) The MSX is a no nonsense, you do the driving wheel. You have to man handle the thing in turns, braking and acceleration. It has a larger board that allows higher continuous amperage. It accelerates and brakes faster. It tends to be more stable at speeds above 25 mph........(and I love it more ....... unless I am cruising behind my wife at 12 mph.)
  24. This is my first ever EUC and my first post here, so please be cool with the noob guys. First of all, thank you all for this wonderfulful forum, I learned a lot of stuff here and the atmosphere is so friendly. I am 47 years old, used to ride a push scooter quite a lot, for commuting and fun; 82kg or so. I live and ride in London, UK, along the river Thames, and in Richmond park, so 85% flat and 15% steepyish hills. I learned how to ride an EUC on this Kingsong KS 16S six months ago, and it now has 4700km, I commute 20 miles each way every day and ride on weekends too Learning: it took me 3 days, kind of following @Duf's advice in one of his video: first day, only one foot on the wheel, and then kind of push scootering, alternating feet. I did this for two or three hours. My calves suffered a lot. Second day, used a tennis court fence to try and get two feet on the wheel and moving forward from there. After one hour, I was able to ride and go straight. Then I spent the next two hours or so trying to learn how to get on the device without any fence, and then learning how to stop. Third day, spent two to three hours trying to turn, and then ride almost normally, getting confidence. All this I did in a very quiet area, no cars, very few pedestrians. The fourth day, I had to ride a few miles in a public space, this was in Amsterdam, NL, so on protected bike paths, but still, I was not that much confident riding with other cyclists but managed to do it, with a heavy backpack on. Why the KS 16S: I bought this in May 2018, so there were a lot of wheels to choose from. Back then I wanted only one wheel for my whole life ( I know I know I was young then ), so it kind of had to be a 16inch wheel, and Kingsong I felt was more reliable back then. What I dislike with the KS 16S: - the handle bar snapped twice where the black thingy joins the rods which enter in the wheel body. So I had to replace the handle bars twice. I think they should use stronger plastics. I do not baby my wheel, and do not intend to. - that's it. The wheel is not perfect, but I knew of all the other "issues" before buying: when a puncture happens, you have to open the wheel, the range is limited, etc ... What I like with my KS 16S: - the range is as advertised: with 840wh, I can do 30 ish miles from 100% to close to 5%, given that I ride aggressively with a few stop / acceleration sequences in a big city. - the wheel is beautiful: I have the black matte model, and I find it is kind of understated and elegant - the wheel can handle rough treatment. I really don't baby it ( I put some protective foam during the first two months then removed them ). But I ride off road, in the rain, etc ... the wheel fell a couple of dozens times, nothing has broken or anything. - it is very powerful. I don't ride fast, limiting myself to less than 31km/h, but I like fast acceleration, and the wheel just delivers any power I ask for - It has all the lightings needed to be seen in the dark: front, back and side - as a commuter device, it never let me down: even when the handles were broken, I could trolley by the rods sticking out, and was able to grab it by underneath the pedals if I wanted to lift it. Replacing the wheel ( I used slime but for some reason the punctures are always on the tyre sidewalls ) does take some doing but lasts only one hour even for me ( "might be able to do but don't want to do and I dont have the tools anyway" ). What's next: I need a bigger wheel, comfortable enough to be safer for my commute. The 16S can handle the distance, but I have to charge it if I want to be able to come back. And riding 20 miles as a routine is a bit dangerous on a small wheel along the rougher parts of the Thames bank and Richmond park at dark. So I ordered an MSX which will arrive soon hopefully. Why MSX? a good price was on offer, and I'm fed up with the issues with the trolley handle on Kingsongs( why not give us the choice to have a "titanium" or whatever? how hard can it be? ). I might face others with the MSX though By the way, I ordered the big pedals to replace the old ones on the KS 16S, the grip is almost all gone, to the point of being dangerous
