  1. Hi. After just a week with my new s2 i got a flat tyre..... Fortunatly there are a few youtube videos on the topic because I could not find information about tyre change in the manuals?. Now... my problem. I cant remove the cover. It is STUCK! I am hoping for good tips here in the forum that will help, otherwise i will have to return it. In the manuals and videos they just remove 2 screws and pull upp the cover. I cant. I tried removing the pedals for better access but it didnt help. Its not reasonable that the cover doesnt come off considering how hard i pulled.

  3. Howdy everybody, I just bought a brand new One S2, which looks terrific. The only thing that prevents me from starting is a weird noise (imho) that the wheel does. It's only when the motor is started, and at low speed. If I perform the same movement with the motor stopped, there are absolutely no noises (so no things stucked inside). I have contacted Ninebot who told me that it is completely normal for an S2. Nevertheless, I would be happy to hear your thoughts. Even if it's normal, what is causing that awful noise ?
  4. Hey guys, after been training to ride for a while, I finally managed to find time to go out in the wild. Rode on normal tarmac road, and noticed when the wheel reaches 15km/h+ speed, it started to make micro turns left and right, continuously, from what it feels like 0.3s for every turn (like micro curves), and it does maybe no more then 3-4", still I can feel it and it makes me uneasy. I can mange it, but its not a comfortable ride for sure. First I blamed the surface, but then I went to a very nice and flat tarmac, and vibration continued. the picture attached showing its trajectory. I tried re-calibration to no avail. It is normal, or I need to get it fixed? Thanks.
  5. Hello, I have ride for a couple of hundred km, my speed limit is set to off but I am unable to reach the maximum speed of 24 km/h. Any clue? Please find attached the current status. Thanks! Ninebot S2 1.tif Ninebot S2 2.tif
  6. Just here to give my opinions on the Ninebot Mini and why its a more dangerous than any other EUCs and see if anyone else here agrees with me. The argument: Last year before Christmas I bought a Ninebot Mini I had a go on it and realized not only was it less fun because you were required to go in a straight line but significantly more dangerous over riding any EUC. In fact I think the Mini should be speed limited to only 10-12km/h max and not 18! When riding at higher speeds and the floor is uneven you are having to adjust your body to the way the road is. For example when you ride on a slope where your only ONE of your wheels are lower or higher you would have to tilt to the direction that is higher to remain balance. For eg: If you are riding on the side walk and on your left there is a wheel chair ramp making the left wheel dip lower than the right wheel for a short bit you will have to quickly adjust your body to the right so remain balance if you stood still you will lose control. The other concern is that when you do so to maintain your centre of gravity you could knock that pole that controls the left or right, this has also become a major issue when riding on uneven surfaces. Unlike riding on an EUC the centre of gravity is between your foot at the point where the wheel hits the floor making it easy to glide over rougher terrains. On the Ninebot mini you are forced to adjust your body to the way the terrain is much more than what is required from an EUC. The benefit however of the Ninebot Mini is that you are able to pick it up quickly, and stand in place really easily. In short...after owning the Ninebot Mini I quickly sold it(without even owning it for 2 weeks) knowing the dangers that would possess with it and made a hefty profit during the Christmas season. My first actual post on the forum, thanks for reading Jack

    Ninebot One S2 Tyre Valve access

    First time user here, just purchased Ninebot One S2, after having miniPro for a couple of months I decided to try something more challenging, and kids took over miniPro anyway. Now while doing some exercises I noticed very low tyre pressure. But I'm unable to reach tyre valve to top it up to 40-45PSI as recommend. The valve is not in parallel with a tyre (like on some youtube videos) and it makes it absolutely impossible to connect the extender. You can see it on the photo attached. Lack of Segway support is really frustrating, for the price we pay, there should be at least a phone number to call, or a chat or something, submitting the form not helping, no response at all. And I'm surprised there is very little info online about Ninebot S1/S2, is it not widely used?
  8. Hi, thank you for the great forum. I would like to start with EUC so I have not much knowledge. I want to buy an EUC but have not decided yet. I would be thankful for help! I live in a city (and especially my street) which is quite steep so some power is needed. I do not intend to use it regularly for my commute but more for fun or for some travels with trains etc. Therefore range is not a big issue. I like speed. I am not squeamish when it comes to carrying weight, but as mentioned before, I will use it for public transport so a medium weight would be nice. I do not care much about the design. I care for durability. I do not need a fancy app but setting a speed limit for the beginning which can be removed when I think it is the right time is good. I do not mind buying a used one, but my impression was that the price difference is small. So I thought about parameters like this: 500W/15km/28km/h/12kg I do not want to invest a lot and would like to invest below 400€, nevertheless, I do not want to invest 350€ for an EUC which I will consider too weak after a few weeks. I considered the Ninebot S2 which I can get for about 330€ with warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (130WH) for 313€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM3 (170WH) for 360€ without warranty I considered the Gotaway MCM4 (130WH) for 463€ without warranty I considered this one (https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2016-New-Fashion-style-Powered-Bluetooth-unicycle-1600W-self-balancing-car-smart-car-single-wheel-thinking/32738452250.html) for 284€ but when I asked about more details the seller told me it was out of stock. I considered the IPS ZERO (240WH) for 421€ without warranty . If you have other recommendations or better prices (for Germany) I would be thankful. Also if you think my parameters are bullshit feel free to tell me. Thank you very much!
  9. hey guys, I don't see anyone even Segway selling a replacement LED cover for the S2. I see a lot for the E+ models though. do you know where I can find one? I've scratched mine pretty bad.

    Grabbed a new ninebot s2

    I ordered a Kingsong 16s as my first wheel but upon seeing the responses in my thread over there I decided to pick up an s2 to learn on for a few reasons. One, I may not get my Kingsong for 2-4 weeks (or more??) thanks to delays in manufacturing/shipping and I'm impatient to start learning. If I'm being honest, impatience is the primary reason... I also figured maybe I should learn on a slower wheel to start and to avoid putting all the newbie stress and crashes on my more expensive wheel. I think the two wheels are different enough so I could see situations where I might actually choose to use the s2 due to its lower size and weight. I know a lot of people say they outgrow their ninebots pretty fast but with a top speed of 14-15 mph, I feel like it is just fast enough to be useful where the 12.5 limit on the s1 is a little more limiting. Finally, at least in the US it still appears that you can fly with an s2 provided you check the shell and carry the batteries in your carry-on. I realize in EU they have essentially banned all self-balancing vehicles (thanks, cheap hoverboard batteries!). Also I feel like s2 availability is going away pretty rapidly in the US and I got it for around $700 which seems to be a decent deal to me. I almost sprung for an MCM4 but it actually has smaller batteries for the similar price range and it looks like MCM4 pros are probably coming soonish and I'd prefer to wait where I feel like the s2 may be the last ninebot made that can go over 12.5 mph in the USA. I have a decent amount of public transit where I live and actually weigh about what the average EUC company test model does (70 kg) so I think the ninebot should have enough power to handle my commute should I choose to not want to carry the kingsong up and down stairs some days (the elevators to the subway in SF are not always a good option since they often double as restrooms in some parts of town...) Anyway happy to join the club, really looking forward to my journey with all of you.
  11. Hey guys! I'm selling my lovely Ninebot One S2 in its original packaging. It's been used for about a month. There's a few scrapings but nothing major or noticable at a quick glance. Upgraded firmware. Price: $600 plus shipping from Sweden, with a European charging cable. It cannot go by air unless you want to pay for an expensive Fedex shipping. It's easy to replace the cable if you need to: the part you need to change is a standard laptop/computer power cable.
  12. need ninebot one parking stand, gotway trolley handle (mcm2/mcm3), 4 cable ties hopefully this information can help you thank you

  14. Hi! I received my first EUC, a Ninebot One S2, about 2 weeks ago. I learned fast and now I am VERY comfortable riding it. However, there seems to be an ever-so-slight wobble on the wheel. Therefore my body adapts in order to go straight. But then hours after I stop riding, I have this swaying motion in my legs and in my head. I don't feel it while riding. I liken it to when coming ashore after having been on wavy sea for a few hours. My body kind of feels like it's still on a boat. Is this common? Have anyone of you guys experienced this? I feel it both forward/back and to the sides. The back and forth feels fine to me. But the side-swaying it fast and rythmic, and corresponds with a slight wobble I feel while riding (even straight!). So I am contemplating whether to return it so the vendor can have a look at it, but I wanted to check with you experienced guys first if this is normal, worth it, to be expected... or not. What say ye?!

  16. For those interested, here is my comparison of the new 14" Ninebot One S2 [310wH] (Retail $950) vs the new 14" InMotion V5F+ [460wH] (Retail $995) Special thanks to @fearedbliss for letting me try out his new InMotion V5F+ during a good, few hour tour of Brooklyn and Coney Island (my first time in fact!). For reference, I am a 72kg rider with a foot size of US Mens 8.5, and write this comparison as just a regular EUC enthusiast, model and company agnostic. SPEED Out of the box, the V5F+ and S2 should, per spec, have the same ~15.5mph top speed, but I had a hard time catching up to @fearedbliss when I was following on my S2. The S2 is in full tiltback when crossing the 15mph threshold, while the V5F+ tiltback threshold seems to go a little higher. InMotion seems to have plans to increase the V5F+ top speed in later firmware updates, while Ninebot has not stated any plans to increase the S2's top speed in the near future. RANGE Per spec, the V5F+ with slightly bigger battery and better LG cells, should have 50% better range than the S2. While I didn't conduct an exact scientific test between the two, suffice it to say, during our lunch break mid-ride, I had to find the nearest outlet for my S2, while @fearedbliss's V5F+ went the entire few hour trip without a recharge. (for E+ owners, I get the same 12 mile range on my S2 as I did on my old E+ -- as always, rider weight dependent). RESPONSE [S2] Like with all Ninebot Ones, the S2 has a hard response. The pedals maintain a solid, perpendicular shelf during the entire drive, just like I used to experience on my old E+. Unfortunately, with the new Ninebot app, I can't seem to find a way to adjust the hardness like I could with my old E+ and old Ninebot app. [V5F+] The V5F+ has a unique version of a hard response that I quite liked. Initially, inbetween braking and acceleration, there is a slight 'wavy' rock to the pedals. However, when engaging acceleration forward, the pedals will cock up and lock at a slight angle (not as steep as tiltback), staying rock solid and allowing you to really lean into the wheel during acceleration. I am always cautious about not overleaning due to past mishaps (all my faults!), but with the V5F+, I felt like I could be more aggressive in pushing my weight into the wheel for acceleration, more than I can on my other wheels. Maybe this is the kind of response @Jeffrey Scott Will and all the other SoloWheel owners rave about when talking about their SoloWheels? BUMPS [S2] The S2 as a 14" wheel handles bumps and jumps off curbs just fine (with the familiar Ninebot One rattle). Bumps or running into minor divots will set off a single momentary beep that I believe is a current surge overlean warning (which is great!). The same warning is triggered when I try to accelerate too fast from slow speeds too, ie. overlean. [V5F+] The V5F+ going over small bumps and landing off curbs feels like you are riding on a solid mass of immovable rubber. Jumping off curbs will make no rattling noise whatsoever, and driving through small bumps, like a raised sidewalk onramp curb, feels like nothing. PEDALS / HANDLING [S2] Ninebot Ones have always had fairly comfortable pedals, and the S2 is no different. They measure about 7.5" long, 5.25" wide, and sit 4" high from the ground, a bit low for my tastes and carving style. [V5F+] To me, this is one of the areas of the V5F+ that shines. The V5F+ pedals, despite appearances, are one of the longest (8") and highest (5.5") stock pedals I've experienced on a wheel (for additional reference, my KS-18A mk2 pedals are 7" long, 5" wide, 4.5" high). The combination of the less wide (5"), high-sitting pedals allowed me to really angle the wheel close to the ground during turns, without pedal scrape. I got so used to this setup that, going back to the S2, I kept pedal scraping trying to make the same deep turns! COMFORT [S2] The S2 has no padding to speak of, so you must attach your own. I stuck some A/C insulating foam to the shin regions with velcro, which does the job. The pedals, again, are a good size and feel comfortable. [V5F+] The V5F+ sports fairly cushy and thick built-in shin cushions (thicker and cushier than my KS-18A's) that are very comfortable. The relatively long pedals, while sporting less width, were more comfortable than I thought they would be from pictures, no complaints here. WARNINGS / SOUNDS The S2 has many loud beeps that make sense for top speed and overlean warnings, but are a bit obnoxious (same volume) when powering on and lifting the handle. Ninebot really needs to make these non-warning type beeps lower in volume or manually adjustable through the app. In contrast, the sounds of the V5F+, in both tone and volume, are more palatable; the power on/off sound reminds me of old Sega video game sounds!. On another note, both wheels carry no audible motor frequency noise, which is a nice change from the KingSong motor noise (I believe Gotway as well has this). PORTABILITY [S2] Unfortunately, Ninebot has not learned the lessons of it's previous One line, and there is no Ninebot or 3rd party trolley handle solution. While the S2 @ 27lbs is considered a lighter EUC, I would not want to carry the wheel for prolonged periods of time. Hopefully they will develop a suitable option, but something tells me this will be in the form of a poorly designed afterthought, just like the un-wieldy, eyesore of a unicorn trolley handle they sell for the 16" One series. [V5F+] While @fearedbliss hadn't received his V5F+ trolley handle yet, from pictures, it looks well thought out and well integrated into the overall wheel's design, what with it's fold-out, curved shape. It's great that InMotion designed this custom trolley handle and made it available at launch, not assuming all their riders are muscled and ripped enough to carry around the V5F+'s 26.5lbs over prolonged distances / periods of time. HANDLE / WHEEL KILL [S2] The S2 handle is made of a firm rubberized material (spongier than the 16" One Handle), fixed on both ends to the wheel by hidden mechanical, spring-like mechanisms that, when the wheel is lifted by the handle, pulls slightly out of the unit, beeping and engaging the wheel kill function (provided the wheel is not spinning above 5MPH). The overall feel is sturdy, yet comfortable. I do have occasion where, when I lift the wheel, the spring mechanisms do not fully pull out properly at first to initiate the wheel kill, but this is rare and quickly corrects itself under the pull of its own weight while continuing to carry it. [V5F+] The V5F+ handle is a continuous extension of the plastic body/shell, just like the KingSong KS-14C & KS-18A carry handles. A long, thin plastic button runs along most of the underbelly of the handle so that grabbing the handle naturally presses the button against your hand against the weight of the wheel, engaging the wheel kill function. Although the button is long, you could feasibly lift the wheel while not depressing the button, for, say, lift tests, which is nice, because with the S2, you have to dig through a few settings menus in the Ninebot app to turn off the wheel kill feature. ** I have to say, the handle-initiated wheel kill in general is extremely useful for running in and out of shops, and lifting the unit quickly up tall curbs without having to power on/off the unit (thankfully both wheels power on fairly quickly: the V5F+ is a long press of its touch pad power button, while the S2 is a slightly quicker press of its regular mechanical power button). Plus, carrying the powered-on S2 with green LED ring battery level display adds to the eye candy factor! VISIBILITY The V5F+ clearly wins in the visibility department, sporting full blown headlight and tail lights. I like that the front light is manual on/off, as, for comparison, my KS-18A light sensor tends to be finnicky in inbetween daylight and nighttime scenarios, or switching in and out of shade. The S2 only sports the led ring light (with braking light), which is now stock visible from the front and back, but the lights from these angles are not particularly the brightest. BATTERY METER As those have stated, being able to look directly down to see the battery meter on the V5F+ is very convenient, especially mid-ride, as opposed to the S2, which breaks out of the side led battery indicator pattern during motion. WHEEL CLEARANCE Both wheel shells are fully circular and sit fairly flush with the wheel at around 1/2" for both, but I love how the V5F+ has gone a step further to make the bottom edge of the shell fold up (with a firm yank) so you can easily access the tire valve without an extension for inflating. BOTTOM LINE / CLOSING THOUGHTS @Jason McNeil has a real winner in the new InMotion V5F+. It really feels like InMotion took the best of each competitor's wheels, threw in a few extra, well-thought out conveniences, and rolled it into this first foray into the single wheeled EUC market. For all the Ninebot One E+ owners out there looking to upgrade, I would have to put this wheel right next to the KingSong KS-16B as the 2 best overall upgrade paths, with the V5F+ being the more compact and lighter option. The S2, on the other hand, is still a solid wheel (basically a 14" E+), albeit comparatively over-priced (as is the case with Ninebot in general), but not an end-all be-all solution IMO. The only real advantage it has over the V5F+, I would say, is that the batteries (2x 155wH packs) are TSA compliant for travel, and semi-easy to remove. (note: the 4 battery screws have a tendency to get lost through the deep holes of the battery casing if you're not using a magnetic screwdriver). =====UPDATE (7/27/2016)===== (additional observations, now that I have the V5F+ in hand) GRIPTAPE The V5F+ pedals are way grippier than the S2. The S2 griptape is similar to a fingernail file, while the V5F+ has a deeper, more textured grooves, ala heavier duty skateboard griptape. POWERING The power connector looks very USB-esque, but the best part is, it's symmetrical! Meaning, there's no wrong way to plug it in, unlike every other EUC power connector out (LEMO, GX16, etc.). Think all wheels should use this, as I always hate fumbling to quickly plug the chord in (wish I knew the name of this connector type...) Charging the powered off V5F+ will automatically turn on a rolling light display (which I cannot seem to turn off) that shows the progress of charging via the battery indicator. The S2 has a similar display, but you have to turn it on manually. Both wheels when plugged in and in this battery display mode do not engage the gyroscope. *One note about the V5F+ power button is that it is very sensitive. While installing the trolley handle, I repeatedly turned the wheel on unintentionally. TROLLEY HANDLE / PORTABILITY From pictures, I assumed that the V5F+ trolley handle was metal, but in hand, that was not the case. The trolley handle is made up of primarily a sturdy plastic (like a plastic wiffle ball bat) with a rubber grip and feels hollow on the inside. This material choice makes sense to keep the total weight of the unit down. Plastic aside, the trolley handle feels plenty sturdy, and with the curved design, I'm able to easily push the wheel around, even when the wheel is not powered on. However, I wouldn't recommend trying to lift the wheel by the extended trolley handle, as I think that would put unnecessary stress on it. And although both V5F+ with trolley handle installed and the S2 weigh 27 lbs, the V5F+ for some odd reason feels a little lighter when carrying. Not sure why, but might be due to the V5F+ battery residing higher in the unit than the S2 batteries. CALIBRATION I really like the V5F+ calibration vs other systems I've experienced. You basically adjust a slider in the app, which will immediately and incrementally re-level the wheel accordingly, without having to restart/re-power on the wheel. In comparison, the Ninebot and KingSong calibrations require you to have steady hands in manually adjusting the wheel to the right level, and then holding that position while fumbling to lock in that setting in the app with an app button press, or having to press the physical power button on the wheel.

    Ninebot A1

    Does anybody happen to have the Ninebot A1 yet? It seems like im one of the only people in the states with a A1 right now. I scratched mine up already -__- i did get the optional 2nd battery with it and it does seem to increase the distance it can travel. Quite easy to make the commute back and forth to work. Anybody on here have experience between the A1 and S2? I know the S2 has more power and a 2nd battery just wondering what everyones opinions were on it. And if anybody has any ideas on where to get new shells that would be awesome! Thanks, Stu

    Ninebot One Overlean Beeps

    While enjoying my new S2 purchase, I noticed that the wheel has a double beep for sudden overlean / sudden current over-surges, which is great! The thing is, for any E+ owners out there, I can't remember for the life of me if the E+ had such a warning. My recollection is that it didn't. Would appreciate any confirmation from E+ owners, thanks!
  19. Recommend index: ★★★★ Test period: 30 days Preface:What is the most handsome car, wheelbarrow. I'm very glad to participate in the test of Ninebot One S2 . The personal views of One S2 are as follows: Appearance: ★★★★★ Charming, stylish and exquisite. The first time I saw it, I couldn't help holding it. S2 in lights still maintained the charming aperture of Ninebot One, especially at night, far away to see a handsome halo, turns head high. Far away you can see the handsome halo. Heads will turn as it in the street. In terms of the shell, S2 also has a lot to create space, and the shell can be DIY. This design is adhering to the design concept of Ninebot , With Ninebot words:” We are responsible for developing production and you are responsible for creating.” Riding comfort: ★★★★★ Riding is smooth, 14 inch car can shuttle in free in the crowd. Under the double electric power, straight down the steps without any pressure. In the climbing test, S2 did not let people disappoint. Beijing overpass normal slope should be about 20 °-25 °, it is easy to go up, there is no phenomenon of slipping, the power and the grip of the tires are good performance. Endurance: ★★★★ In the 10 days prior to the test of using single cell, either in life or on power output can’t meet me this super fans. Because commuting, plus battery using attenuation in winter, riding 13 km or so shows low battery, if the whole can ride at a constant speed to 15 km. Fortunately, S2 can increase the battery module, and when I sleep single battery has already can't satisfy the I, I apply to the company for a piece of pool on the car, and through the APP to upgrade the firmware, and sure enough, power and range is very large, the high speed riding 27 km, uniform driving to riding around 30 kilometers, S2 can add battery this really good, the novice can select a single cell, learn to add a battery can be upgraded to high version, very convenient. Weight: ★★★★★ Whether it is a single battery or a dual battery, the weight of S2 is completely within the acceptable range, even for women, it is very easy to carry on walking, this is a great breakthrough in the balance of the car industry, I understand the current industry can be upgraded to the battery and also such a light car really did not. Hardware: ★★★★ This design that S2 handle picked up after the power to stop is very good, I played a lot of balanced cars, this car should feel most secure in the industry. For beginners, the S2 shell removal may be a little more difficult, you need some skills, if you are too hard to damage the enclosure. Overall, the car is the most comfortable car I rode, no one. Wish Ninebot is getting better and better, looking forward to review new products next time.
