  1. Has anyone ever considered one of these? I saw a newsflash about it around 10 years ago when it was in the conceptual stage. Two women launched the idea targeted at people who are reluctant to wear helmets. I just came to think of it, did a quick search and it turns out it has now reached the market. It would be very interesting to see some experiments with EUC riders. Perhaps a modified design is neccessary but for that the market is probably not big enough (yet).

  2. Anyone knows where to find decals / stickers for Nikola Plus? Like this Or like in other wheels Like the vinyl made by @Esper here Anyone ? #help
  3. Hi all, I wanted to share with you the mods I've done to the two electric unicycles I've had for the moment by adding padding to avoid the leg pain we all experienced at the beginning, mainly when learning. Some may have got used to it, however I never did as after a while not being able to keep learning due to the pain, I found the solution, adding good padding (not the one that comes by default, not enough). So on my first electric unicycle, a generic one, I added 2x "bike seat gel protection" (3 Eur each, cutting the part that attaches to the seat), using mounting tape (double sided tape would have been cleaner), here the result: I think it may be the most comfortable I've tried. However, the pedals could not close completely and one got soft after some time and would not stay up. My next padding mod was when I got my IPS Lhotz, again it was painful as it only has a bit of padding on the top of the side and it is not very soft. This time I used the EPE Foam that came on the shipping box of the unicycle, some red plastic from a bag/folder for documents and double sided tape. The result, also comfortable, but not as much as the gel seats. From the video I've on YouTube: Here the state of it after a year, dirty and falling apart: Both the mounting tape and the double sided tape I used were hard to remove, so you better try it a bit before carefully putting it together Now I was looking for a new padding, I found two new options: work knee pads and knee-elbow soft guards/pads. The work knee pads are not flat, so could not really use them and also were not comfortable enough. I decided it was time to try the knee-elbow soft guards/pads as the were comfortable. The result is pretty good and they are comfortable! Let's see once I use them to go to work or for a long MeetUp ride how do they feel. Let us see your padding mods!
  4. Hey All! New to the boards and relatively new to the EUC crowd also (so please go gentle!), but practicing every day, and loving every moment of it - I'm Week 3 into learning to ride with my FastWheel Eva Pro and thought I'd share just a few snaps of the recent makeover I've given my FastWheel. Naturally, in the process of learning, it has picked up more than its fair share of bumps, scrapes and scuffs from Day 1, so I thought I'd give it a little makeover to tidy it up and give it a little character! This was a really inexpensive, lightweight and fun way to add a (small) level of additional protection, but more importantly covers existing scratches, marks and scuffs quickly and easily. I have yet to finish the last few gaps in the lower part, but after its entirely covered, I will give it a clear acrylic spray coat or two to seal the stickers, give a high-shine and help protect from the elements. Just wanted to share my little creation with those that might appreciate it! Hope you like, in the meantime safe riding... #PimpMyEUC
  5. I know there has been a few discussions on protective gear lately. Marty showed of his gear in a video. There is a thread about gear suggestions which I guess is by people that own it and are happy with it, and finally the injury thread touches on some options. I've suggested a new section to hold protective gear discussions and reviews to make it easy to find these things and maybe prompt greater awareness and discussion. In light of this I hope no one minds if I start a new thread to gain opinions on a type of protective gear I'm looking at. I'd like to know from people who have fallen if they think this gear would have protected their impact areas. EUC falls appear to be unlike any other and particularly brutal. I'd also like to know from any medical professionals (@Rehab1) if they think the protection is in the right locations to avoid EUC type injury. I want to find the right blend of protection and practicality. Ideally I'd like to wear most/all gear under other clothes so as to not look intimidating to pedestrians in city riding and because I'll be commuting and don't want to enter the office like RoboCop. While I hope to get a lot of recreational riding in on my new wheel most will be commuting to and from work and A to B travel for things like shopping, chores, etc where I'd like some level of discretion and comfort upon arrival. I've found these undershirts/shorts and knee/elbow protectors by G-Form. They use RPT for protection which is basically their version of D3O. A non newtonian formed gel that goes hard upon impact but is otherwise low profile and flexible. The complete range can be seen is here: http://g-form.com/shop-body I particularly like the Pro X Compression Shirt It has good shoulder and collarbone coverage (well the best I have seen). Sternum protection for face-plant falls and rib protection. Sadly nothing on the spine. I'd wear this under a shirt generally for riding. Also for the hips and legs the Pro G Board and Ski Compression Shorts They have tailbone and butt (sit-bones???) protection for downhill cutouts. Side impact hip protection. I wish the hip protection wrapped a little further forward though. Anyone have any opinions on these? Also they make knee and elbow protection using the same tech. Some options extend above and/or below the joint for additional protection. Would you feel comfortable wearing these in place of hard-shell knee and elbow protection? They are certainly more practical and comfortable for my planned usage but I don't want to compromise too greatly on safety. Hard-shell protection is pretty cheap. If I wanted to trail ride I could have a set of hard protection for those uses. But for commuting and general city use I'm hoping for a compromise, well actually I want the best of both worlds, but that is usually impossible to find. I'm seeing good reviews from the snowboarding, skate, and mountain biking communities. But it is the opinion of this one that matters. Thanks in advance.
  6. I bought some wrist guards finally, because I am a guitar player and I can't keep taking chances with my hands. So I purchased my wrist guards, typical standard ones and as soon as I tried the first trick they forced me on to my elbow instead. With basic stiff wrist guards you can cause a fracture further up the arm as well some finger injuries. I found these, they're $30. I wanted these but they go up so high and most of all they are about $65. Fractures further up the arm are a real hazard with the typical style. So this could be the ticket. Not sure. This is the footage of me falling onto my elbow.
  7. 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.
  8. 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?
  9. What kind of clothes you want to take your wheels GotWay MSuper C3? What clothes would you like on your wheel GotWay MSuper s3? Adding interesting ideas and shops. https://m.facebook.com/groups/819824711409186?view=permalink&id=1229950573729929
  10. 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 riding with your knees bent to run off at high speeds, @Jurgen and @lizardmech give nice pointers on martial arts rolls to bail at high speeds. It's an interesting read even if you're not skilled enough to attempt rolls at high speeds, I'd recommend it.
  11. 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 though it has hidden padding and elbow, back protectors) There are heaps of styles and choices. Sizing is world standards or I have a size chart if required. your current footwear will have the size written on it. You can go all out with full leather and high quality full face helmet and pay around USD1500.00 Here is an example of what you can purchase
  12. Here's how I protected my hoverboard/swegway. You should do it to any of your electric vehicle that get scratches quickly. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Hbb53mBGiQ
