  1. Hello! I want to sell or swap/change to a bigger or faster wheel from King Song. Come with suggestions, I am thinking a KS16S or a KS18XL. My King song is bought in Polen around 6months ago and I live in Sweden (Stockholm). I've tried to take good pictures, if they aren't enough just tell me to send more. It has some scratches which I try to show the deepest ones. Underneath the pads, it is there that most of the hits/bumps/scratches have taken place. I have never crashed with it big, it is only really when learning with it the first few weeks I jumped off it and it laid down on the sides. Other than that it is brilliant! I guess that you already have this info but it has the Panasonic battery-pack 680WH. Range is fantastic on it! Soft pads against the body are still in good condition. Price, I am not certain... My guess is maybe around 700 Euro? Don't know if you do like eBay here with bidding ( I just signed up to this forum). If you have any questions, welcome. Regards
  2. I just recieved a new KS16S. It seems that the factory is shipping a number of these out without a serial number assigned. When I turn it on I get 4 lights and continous beeping. I am able to connect via the app. I can change settings but no serial number is displayed. I am afraid of riding it when the software is in an error state. Jason at EWheels is looking for a factory fix for the issue. I have contacted KingSong through the KingSong support page and any English language email addresses I could find. No response yet. Don't bother calling the KingSong 803 area code support number in the app, it rings to some clueless guy in South Corolina. If anyone has resolved the serial number issue please share how it was done. I will provide an update when I get this fixed.
  3. 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
  4. I'd like to know how many other 16" EUC riders here have experience with the Maxxix Hookworm 16" street tire. https://www.amazon.com/Maxxis-Hookworm-BMX-Tire-16X1-95/dp/B00188A1LG After recently switching over I can safely say that this will be my tire of choice for my KS16S. I thought the wheel was nimble before but this has brought it to a whole new level. It allows me to make sharp turns and carve like I never thought possible. One downside is that it can make the wheel a bit more prone to wobbles but no big deal. Couldn't recommend higher for all experienced riders of 16" wheels
  5. How many people here I've actually worn tires bald on an euc? I'm just curious but guessing not many. On my ks16s I wore it bald enough to get a flat tonight. Luckily I have a replacement tire ready to go and my new tube should arrive tomorrow. Do to my riding style, I see many, many tire changes are in my future.
  6. I have been with the wheel for a few days and very happy with it. Everyone in our group has found it stable and reliable. Today I took the wheel to a steep, short hill for a test. I shifted my feed to the front of the pedals as far as I could so I could lean on it aggressively. But I could never push the wheel pass 1200W so that I could go faster (it was about 6mph). I would expect this is doable as the max power is 3000W. It was set to Experienced riding mode. By doing the same, I could push the V8 up to just over 1400W and its speed was as fast as the ks16s. I even did the same test on an AirWheel X8, it could barely make it going slowly like a snail, at one point it was at about 1200W where it stopped. So I think the ks16s does not utilize the power of the motor. What is the point of 3kW max power when I am unable to use it? I think there is some improvement needed in the firmware here, like a Super Sensitive mode? @US69 Btw, this is just a test scenario to see how the wheels perform. I do not usually have that demand in my daily commute. Has anyone done a similar test and been able to push the ks16s to over 1200W?
  7. not my video but I fully endorse the message KS16S review 2000km
  8. Hello folks, I just found out by coincidence, that there is a firmware update 1.07 available for KS-16S. I updated the firmware by using the latest version V1.47 of the "new" Android App, available here: http://jc.cnaite.cn/data/apk/Kingsong_Aligned.apk Because it's one o'clock in the morning (at my place ;), I haven't done a test ride with this setup - please be patient until late sunday evening (CEST). Or another rider may substitute with their experience report on this firmware. Regards, Borg.
  9. Does anyone know what this 2.5" mod. is all about? What are the benefits? Which is the preferred tire? Who sells it? are there other steps to perform other than " swap the tires"? I have seen that raising the shell by one pedal arm mounting hole gives clearance for the control-board heat-sink. Is that the only mod.?
  10. Hi mates, after selling my old, more than 3000 km driven KS16 last autumn, and being wheel abstinent for 6 month now over winter and early spring, I bought a brandnew KS16S today, and test drove it for a short ride: Absolutely awesome compared to my old KS16, steeper footpads, faster, more powerful ! (And I already liked my old one ). But now I have a question: Unfortunately I have firmware 1.00 on the wheel, and if I remember correctly, already in autumn 1.02 was available, and I'm sure meanwhile there is a higher version. So just for the firmware upgrade I must now install the crappy new Kingsong app, and delete it immediately after the upgrade again. Plz can someone tell me from where I can get the KS app (I applied the speedfix with the old KS app, and besides that I'm only using wheellog, nothing else). Though I found this link in the forum: http://jc.cnaite.cn/data/apk/Kingsong_Aligned.apk , it doesn't work, the image from there is corrupted and can't be installed. Thanks in advance for any help !
  11. I've had the KS16s for about a month now. The thing that I noticed when I first took it out of the box was that the battery % readout in the APP was jumping all over the place (varying up to 5% while just rolling it around by hand). Another thing that I've noticed in this month of riding, is that the readout just before I turn it off in the morning can be 10% lower than what it says when I turn it back on to do my return commute. This is my second EUC, following the V5F, and I'm wondering if this is a normal King Song thing (bad battery level algorithm), or is it just something to expect with devices that have larger battery packs? Or...nobody else is experiencing this, and my device has a bad battery pack?
  12. Hi there I am currently trying to learn how my KS 16s, and someone mentioned that there is a way on how to make the pedals softer and harder that making the pedals harder are easier for learning does anyone knows whet they were referring to?
  13. I there everyone, was wondering, if the tires for the inmotion v8s, are the same ones for the kingsong KS 16s, I know they are both kenda tires, was wondering if the tires for the v8s or the KS 16s have any kinda of Kevlar on em? Does kenda tires have Kevlar? Can I use the v8 tire interchangeably for use on the kingsong KS16s? And also does anyone one know the dimensions for each one of these two tires? I know that the v8 doesn’t give you much clearance for using different kinds of tires on it, but is it the same thing for the KS16s? Does the kingsong KS 16s has more clearance for you to use a 16’ tire from a bicycle? I already know that the problem really is the inner tubing on these, finding the right one. Still don’t know if I could use a Bicycle tire, that is 16 inches with the same dimensions on the Kingsong KS 16s The dimensions for the kenda v8 tires are: 50 - 305 (16’ x 1.95), does anyne know the dimensions for the kenda that is used on the KS 16s? Thank so for much for your times guys Y’all have a great evening...
  14. My KS16s had an odd issue today. When I was walking it with the trolly the gyroscope seemed to fail. It would tilt forward as if out of power but then it would stop tilting after reaching maybe 20 degrees. Then it would stay that way for a bit and then start tilting back the other way until it was 20 degrees past horizontal in the opposite direction. It repeated this a couple times within a minute before I got back home. Thank god I wasn't actually riding on it when this happened, could have thrown me if it happened at high speed I suppose. Any idea what causes this? Should I stop riding it altogether just in case?
  15. I just have received KS16S last Friday. It is great wheel! I have around 4-5k km experience total, 2k km on Ninebot OneE+ anbd 2-3k km on KS16, and I have to admit that although KS16S has the same plastic body as KS16 - changes are really important and it was worth to get it for sure! (I will comment that in the separate KS16-KS16S comparison thread) This wheel seems to be almost perfect, in fact I think that it is one class higher than KS16 in all aspects - torque, speed, smooth ride as butter, range, less noise, and many more. The only thing to take care of is the modification of the pedal springs, as this is in my opinion the only drawback, however this is quite easy mod to do. Please find below how to do it step by step
  16. Hi, Any rough idea of when we should consider doing a maintenance? Every xx km? or when the tire has to be changed? or after a certain amount of time? Due to the incure injuries in case of possible device failure, I would prefer anticipating? . . . I am still recovering from my last fall :-) I did 750 km in 3 months
  17. Time to sell this beauty, due to upgrading. As I'm out of town currently, I'LL check tomorrow the total milage and post actual pics too. Purchased in June last year. Some faint marks of usage on the shell, pedals scratched a bit, but hey, what d'ya expect??!! ? Other than that everything's is in working order, flawlessly and trolly still does it's job great! Asking price €880. Prefer collection, but shipping is no prob. (Costs buyer)
  18. I have been riding it about 3 months... I had reset it to go 35KPH.. Everything was great until yesterday when I noticed I got the "Please Decelerate" notice and tilt back... but going a lot slower than it should be at. I checked my speed settings on the app and it was set to 35 still, yet it was happening at about 28kph. I can't put in a new code on the speed limit decoding screen cuz once you do it once, you get the same screen as the speed limit setup. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling the app but it still wouldn't bring me to the proper screen to enter a code again.. I tried to install the new version of the app on my android phone from the website but it doesn't download.... so I installed the old app on my friends iPhone and finally thought I had it solved when I saw the proper speed limit decoding screen... I did it.. took it for a ride, and nope... still set to 28kph... I wonder if I need to reset the wheel to a factory default and how to do it. Does anyone know how to solve this? Help!!
  19. My KS16S 840Wh arrived yesterday evening and here are my initial impressions. I ordered this directly from King Song on the 9th and it arrived on the evening of the 29th. So those of you who are impatient might do best to order it from a local supplier instead Apart from the wheel, there’s nothing much in the box; a flimsy manual and of course a charger, but nothing else. However, the wheel itself looks absolutely gorgeous and gives a quite high quality impression. I ordered the rubber black version and it is very nice to the touch. The serial number starts with “KS16 S2 D …” but I do not know if this means it is already somehow a second iteration on the KS16S or if they all have this model number. I took it out for a short 8 km ride yesterday, but today it started raining so apart from a short early morning trip unfortunately I will have to wait until tomorrow to ride more. Luckily, the wheel arrived with 50% charge so I could immediately take it out for a spin. I had no problem whatsoever to just jump on it and go, although the feeling is a bit different from my other wheels. it seems to have a lot of the manoeuvrability from my IPS Zero but is much easier to balance than the Zero it has the same feeling of heft as my Xima Lhotz although it feels marginally less steady due to having a slightly narrower tire When driving, the sides lit up like disco lights. I am happy that the light show can be turned off in the app. Bling is not my thing. There is also a quite loud “Hello King Song” voice when you start it up - and I soon hit the preset 18km/h preset with the voice going “Please decelerate” so loudly that people around me looked up in surprise. Luckily the voice warnings can be switched to beeps in the app, but unfortunately that cannot be done with the welcoming message. I wish they could have a startup sound as an alternative. Speaking of the app, it is much better than the previous apps I have had. I like the fact that the (iPhone) app tells you how much riding distance you have left - but I wonder if that is just a hard-coded conversion of the battery level or if the app actually takes some of the riding stats it collects into the calculation. It should if it doesn’t already!! The riding mode was initially set to “player” mode which compared to the other wheels I have had is very stiff in the sense that it keeps the foot pedals more or less horizontal. I have read that some have trouble with pressing the foot pedals forward, and do not think acceleration is good. I believe that might be because they are riding the EUC in “player” mode. i switched the setting to “cycling” mode instead and then the pedals can be tilted more forward when accelerating. And, importantly, they can be tilted backwards when braking - something which I found a bit challenging in “player” mode. There is also a softer “learning” mode that I have not tried. Since it was getting dark as I was riding, I noticed that the light sensors automatically turned on the headlight - a nice touch! Speaking of nice touches, the retractable handle is really superb. I was getting tired of always having to carry around my wheel and although the Xima was maybe a couple of kilos lighter, it was still a pain. Now I can roll my KingSong with me when going shopping, for example - great!! On the less positive side, there is a very distinct high-pitched whining noise that I never experienced on the IPS Zero or the Xima Lhotz. A bit annoying, I must say - but I understand that this is quite common with newer wheels. Also, the manual is a mess. It would seem such a simple thing to maybe ask someone on this forum to clean up the English a bit. Maybe they could also supply a link to a more up-to-date digital version of it. The “cycling” mode in the app is not even mentioned in the manual, for example. The manual also says that you should “use the inflation tube” when filling air in the tire - there isn’t one and you do not need one. Overall: I was choosing between the King Song 16S and the Gotway ACM, and right now I feel that I really made the right decision. I don’t want to go faster than 35 km/h since I rather cruise and use less protective gear than try to get myself killed speeding to the max. I get the impression that King Song are focusing more on reliability and staying within the limits here - and that is exactly what I want. Also, after just one day, I already no longer understand how I could live without an integrated handle before!
  20. I'm pleased to announce that doctor DPD delivered a healthy 15kilo baby eh,... Wheel today. It enjoyed its first meal of a selection of amps, and volts, and now It's resting peacefully in its crib, while the rain falls gently, but persistently through the cold night air.. the parents haven't decided on a name yet, so for now there just going to call it ks16s 840. But they're both mystified why it's black ?
  21. I stumbled over this seller on Aliexpress, selling accessories for Kingsong 16 inch wheels: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/KINGSONG-16inch-electric-unicycle-All-accessories-parts-motor-shell-Controller-motherboard-Pull-rod-handle-lever-Light/32832356086.html This made me think about if it would be possible to upgrade my Kingsong KS16B to KS16S by replacing my current motor and controller card with new ones? Since I think I have read that the shell is almost the same for B and S. Not that I am exactly sure what model the accessories from this Aliexpress seller is suitable for, you cannot tell from the product descriptions (at least I can't...). But, hypothetically: would it be possible, or if not: what would be the caveats? And would it be enough to replace the motor and the controller or are there other parts that are vital for a successful upgrade?
  22. Hi KS16S owners, could you share your experience with the wheel a little bit ? Is it as reliable as the KS16B, what do you like, what do you not like, did you have an accident because of a wheel malfunction, all these would interest me. I intend to upgrade from my KS16B to the KS16S, not only because of the 5 km/h more maxspeed, but also because of the little bit longer range (I have the 640 Wh version). Thanks in advance for sharing.
  23. Hi guys, To finally celebrate the arrival of the new Kingsong batch to the UK, I am happy to announce a £300 (340€) discount on Kingsong KS16S. "Why the hell does he discount a new model by this much?" - you might ask. This is only because I myself can't wait to start riding one of them, and want few more dedicated riders to join me in enjoying this wheel! The deal will only be available until the end of Sunday, 30th July. With this massive discount you still get the excellent aftersales and servicing done by Project42 UK in London, 24/7 support and return/replacement options. The shipment has landed today, and should be at our warehouse early next week. Reserve yours today: https://proj42.co.uk/kingsong/kingsong-ks16s-electric-unicycle Feel free to reply below or msg me directly if you have any questions
  24. After having used an electric skateboard around town (mainly for transportation) for the past couple of months I realized that enough of the roads around here are a hair too crappy for said skateboard — the board can take it, but I find the ride too rough. Now I'm thinking about switching from the skateboard to a KS16S (or a onewheel+, but that's another story), but having watched a crapton of EUC youtube videos and having browsed thru that "If you fell off EUC and got injured in the last few years, how are you all doing now?" thread, I had a few questions about cutouts: 1. How common are cutouts? As in are cutouts one of those things that aren't so much a "if you have one" thing as a "when you have one" thing? 2. From what I've seen and read I get that the beefier the EUC, the lower the risk of cutouts, and the closer you hang out at the max speed of your EUC, the higher the risk of cutouts, but what are some other things that raise or lower the risk of cutouts? 3. If I'm around 175lbs (80kg) and I don't plan to go much faster than, say, a bicycle that's cruising around (that's about as fast as I care to go on the electric skateboard), are cutouts something I should worry about if I'm looking at a KS16S? And unrelated to cutouts, I have two other noob EUC questions: 1. If I'm buying in the US, is ewheels.com the way to go? Or are there other sites I should also be looking at? 2. Is carrying grocery bags in your hands while riding an EUC a bad idea, balance-wise?. What about shifting the bags around like you might do if you were walking around with heavy bags and your hands were getting tired? 3. The inmotion V8 was the EUC I was actually interested in (because in addition to the 16" wheel and extendable handle in the KS16S, the V8 also had a kill switch for lifting it) but it sounds like ewheels.com is not going to carry it anymore, and I also got the impression that ewheels was the only official distributor of the V8 in the US. Are there other legit outlets that will now carry the V8 in the US?
  25. Slightly erratic/quick review of the KS16S after two months of use / 1300 km. Movie also include short description of mods .. Please subscribe to my channel if possible. Thank You in advance. More technical detailed review - after 2000km... (it will also be colder, yesterday we had 35 degrees Celsius.... ;-) ) I have counted the days - I use KS16S for 53 days now, so this is 24,67 km/day
