  1. I recently had my InMotion V8 with a full battery, a few minutes into a ride start tilting back then slowing down to a stop with all of the LEDs flashing red. I tried turning it off but was not able to for a minute or two, but eventually it went off. I was able to immediately turn it back on and it seemed fine. I rode it another minute or so at a medium speed and less than a minute later the same thing happens. It has now happened maybe 10 or so times. If I ride really slow, it rarely triggers the kickback. But if I go up a hill or more than like 10 miles an hour it's not too long before th
  2. Hi, Recently, we found that the riders in the INMOTION EUC Telegram Group are discussing the "Gohome Mode" a lot. So we draft the chart, then you can have a clear image what we are doing and what we are going to do. Indeed, INMOTION is well-known as the most restraint brand in EUC industry. But the basic design concept is to protect the rider and the battery espercially at low battery state. Using Gohome a lot(Don't ask for the wheel too much on power) in low battery state will improve the lifespan of the battery and lower the risk from an unexpected cutoff or something like that. No
  3. I'm posting here because I would love some thoughts from the community to help strengthen my relationship with these wheels. After putting over 4K miles on my Ninebot Z10 and loving it, I purchased an S18 in hopes of not face planting as often when hitting these huge potholes in Seattle. Shortly after falling in love with the S18, I send the thing into an accident by over-accelerating and inducing a strong pedal dip. This destroyed the trolley handle and ripped me to shreds. Diagnostics showed the unit was working fine after this. After a week of bandages I hopped back on to test if it wa
  4. hey fellow unicylists, I want to share my experience from today. I drove grocery shopping without special protection eq (only helmet) on the way back home my KS16X at 60% battery just stopped to balance mid ride. After a few meters I fell from the wheel, hit face first on the ground and slided nearly 3m on asphalt -.- I definiteley did go some whips forth and back before falling, I 100% realized that the motor is out and Im pretty fast rolling... during the fall I saw the wheel flying felt 3m above my head, it must have leveraged itself up via the pedals or anything like th
  5. So... I’m having a hellacious time with my IM V10 and the penchant the wheel seems to have for wanting to throw me off the back thereof. Some basics - it’s a brand new (well it now has a few miles) wheel (my first) and I purchased it from the awesome folks at ewheels. I am getting comfortable with my wheel - actually tightening up my turning and practicing free mounting (a big deal for me, but definitely getting it!). I went out for a long (for me) ride today of about two miles. I purposely challenged myself with right and left turns, hilly road (about two hundred feet of 5-6 percen
  6. Hi, I'm wondering what other 18XL owners' experience is with the 18XL in terms of speed throttling at low battery. My experience is... It's never done it to me... Ever. Granted, I usually charge it when it gets down to 30% (I like long rides so I tend to want to make sure I'll have plenty of range whenever I go out for a ride), but the when times I've gone below 25%...no speed throttling if any kind. The day before yesterday I got it down to 15% (idle) by the end of the ride, and zero tiltback our speed throttling. Even during the last few kms, (I was monitoring Wheelog constantly
  7. So I was headed home afterwork and took a detour to grab a drink before I got home. Luckily from work to home is only a 10 min ride max. Why is that luckily? At night I ride in the road because it's not as unridable as the sidewalk (ironically) plus at around 11 at night, not many people are on the road. Well there was a car coming up behind me so I usually ride into the shoulder till they pass, but there was a fairly large puddle (it was raining still) I barely saw and ended up riding through. About a minute later, I got the tiltback warning (which I assume was me reaching top
  8. TL;DR: Don't believe the range reporter, don't start a trip when the battery drops below 50%, and try not to push over 12 mph. Today, I decided to do a 4.5 mile ride on 50% battery. It was over flat road and the distance estimator said 9 miles, so I figure I was OK. It was smooth sailing for the first 3 miles. I ride pretty fast and my NB beeps at me to slow down, which I do, but after 3 miles the unit was down to about 25% battery and it I started getting a lot of beeps and tiltback way more extreme than the normal tiltback I get when I break 12mph. It got so bad at one point that
  9. So this happened a while ago, but for some reason didn't feel like posting about it (or even posting at all for that matter). But yesterday started reading up on the tesla and other crashes, so i thought i'd 'contribute'. It ended up being a fairly big wall of text, so i've put a tl;dr at the end. This happened back in september on a warm but windy day. Had the Gotway ACM for a couple of months and started to feel - maybe to- confident. The weather was nice and felt like accelerating but had a fairly strong headwind so might have over leaned a bit. The tiltback was set at 35km/h (used to
  10. Tilt-back is a mechanism to incentivise the rider to slow down. The mechanism is simple: the neutral inclination angle of the shell and hence the pedals is changed from horizontal to negative, tilting the pedals back This gives the rider the incentive to initiate a slow down (see also below). Here I discuss my understanding of the energetic (and a few other) consequences of tilt-back. Remember the feeling to lose the ground under your feet when the tilt-back sets in? Here is why. Simple geometric consideration reveals that if the riders feet stay in contact with the pedals, tilt-back ra
  11. A buddy of mine has been riding his Ninebot Mini Pro daily for more than a year and he always complained about how slow and annoying because of the alarm and tiltback. Recently, he switched to EUC. He bought a BNIB Ninebot One E+ with NO modification at all. After learning and riding it for about a month later, out of curiosity I asked him whether he likes it or not, since I know that a Ninebot One E+ normally is not fast enough for regular cruising. But I was surprised when he didn't have any complain about its speed at all besides of the battery capacity, of course. Not even complained about
  12. I was watching a video of a rider on a Ninebot One E+ experiencing tiltback while having low battery. As there are many Ninebot One riders here on the forum I thought I would post my style of riding on low battery (less than 5 miles range (red zone) left on the battery) and experiencing tilt back cues from the EUC. The Ninebot One E+ responds positively if the rider accepts the tilt back cue in the following way upon receiving a low battery- excessive speed (range = 5 miles and less on the app) tilt back cue from the bot: 1-assume a mild transition to a braking position with the fee
  13. Hi- I recently acquired my first EU, a Ninebot One C+. I am eager to learn to ride as we have a few days of good weather right now. I'm making progress but every time I go a few yards, the wheel tilts back and I feel I've got to jump off and let it go careening into the grass. I thought if I lean back the wheel should slow down and the tilt back should update. But I don't seem to be able to do that. What am I doing wrong? I have the speed limit set very low because I am a risk-averse person. Is that my problem? The battery says it's at about 69%, so I don't think that can be the problem.
  14. My kingsong tilts back upon overheating quite often, sometimes after riding for 10- 20 minutes. Is this a good safety feature or a design flaw - inability to shed heat effectively ? Or..i am I just too freaking fat? ( i am 100kg) which causes the wheel to overheat much faster. The wheel is supposed to be rated for 120kg though. i dont have data on how other wheels react to overheating. Opinions welcome.
