Here is the data from my first long ride on my new MSP High-Speed from eWheels: Brief summary: out and return flat city/bike lane ride of total 34.5 miles with moderate head wind/tail winds for each half of the course. Battery went from 100%/ fully charged down to 37%. Avg speed was about 18 mph overall but I had to press hard against the wind on the first leg of the course. Riding weight 180 Lbs. Feels like I can easily get 50+ miles range out of the wheel easy. My first impressions about the wheel and riding experience: (Previous experience) - I’m a beginner, started riding in March this year, I have about 100 km on a KS14D, 700 Km on a KS16X and 200 km on a Monster V3/100V. The MSP High-Speed is my 4th wheel which I have just received. I only have 50 miles on the wheel but I already absolutely love it. After the wonderful experience on the 16X I was skeptical about finding another wheel that I would like better, the MSP high speed did it. Lift wheel cut-off at 100% battery is 61 mph (98 km/h) The wheel is very maneuverable, doesn’t feel any less maneuverable than the 16X despite the bigger tire size and the heavier weight ( bad assumption made in the original post, it’s only 0.5 Lbs heavier than the 16X, thank you to @EMA who asked me to weigh the wheel!) I think they achieved this by having the center of gravity of the wheel towards the top, making it easier to turn. We could expect this to make the wheel less stable, but that is not the case, I have experienced no wobbles of any kind, and once I had to break really hard to avoid hitting and being catapulted over a crazy bump that I just spotted a few feet before. The wheel is also very comfortable on the legs with the stock padding (Nicola pedals , flat angle - so much more comfortable than my Monster that came with the original MSPro tilted pedals). I have no experience on any of the MSX wheels or the MSP high torque to compare this one with. I feel the 16X is slightly more torquy, but it’s a very small difference, the MSP HS accelerates pretty decently. Overall I love the wheel, I would have not bought the V3/100V Monster if I had tried this wheel first (seems to give me the same range, higher top speed, amazing maneuverability and great stability) Now all the details for whoever wants them: My riding weight: 180 Lbs Course: Flat, Mixed city ride, street roads and bike lane.
