Ninebot One Z In-Depth Review by houseofjob

Recommended Posts

Nice review!

Overheating problem seems solved, I’ll have to test it when I get my production Z10 to be sure.

For the trolley handle, Try turn the wheel 180 degree and push it backwards, much easier.

Mudguard does not block all the water if you are going fast... it’s ok at low speed

Wouldn't it just collapse if you trolley it and hit something? Even more concerning when the handle start to get loose because there is no substantial locking mechanism.

Kingsong solution for trolley handle is the best but it takes to much precious battery space..

Thanks!

And thanks for all the updates from the China side!

Will do, although my anal retentiveness usually won't allow me to roll things backwards as not intended LOL ?

Cool, thanks for noting. Better than nothing!

Once you try it you will get it. Just press it down a little bit. I thought it was a stupid idea when I first heard about it, turn out it works

Thanks for the in-depth review @houseofjob!?

I haven’t rode an euc in ny, but ri has some pretty bad roads, I hope the Z can handle them while going fast. 

Someone mentioned magnetic pedals on the Z, is this on the demo which ultimately be on the release version?

Thanks!

And yes, I was just in RI too! (shot a ride on my MTen3)

Same degree of crappy roads there yes (at least Providence, though much nicer than my college days!), Z should be one of the best available for that now!

Yes, they were on the demo (can see once my Z teardown vid is finished), and pretty sure they’ll be on the final.

@houseofjob great review!

too bad about the headlight but this is gonna be my pasture maybe beach someday wheel, so not a deal killer. probably could change out the led if one felt industrious.

did anybody look at the sidewall tire loading? air pressure range?

Yeah, would really be nice if they fixed / improved pre-release, I hate after-market solutions. But me not being a big night-rider david hasselhoff, guess it’s ok, buying a Z10 regardless.

Per NB1Z stock Tire:

18” x 4.1”

Max Load 190kg at 32PSI

Tire pressure is always based on weight FWIW. No recommended I'm seeing in any NB1Z literature.

And of note, the riding under-inflated creating tube & tire rub is no longer valid here with tubeless [I think]! .... although when I pulled too much air from the demo Z10, it had the familiar pull-y thing going on, so achieving a balance based on your rider load is probably best.

In the Onewheel world, we use tubeless tires, and recommend startung the psi at 10% of your weight(in lbs.). When riding off road, lower it a few psi and when on fairly smooth pavement increase it a few psi.

:thumbup:  Nice job on the review, and hey I spotted the elusive @Cloud!  :w00t2:  What did he think of the wheel?  He's a pretty aggressive rider.  Also, nice fancy iFinger phone/ring/cup holder/viewfinder ring!  Bling bling!  Ya don't want to get that caught in something when riding, that's for sure.  ;)

Stick a small remote vibrating doohickey on there and enlarge the ring portion :whistling: ,and then you've got yourself a real high def multi-purpose POV action cam.   :efef2e0fff:  Although the camera angle would be all wrong... hmmm back to the drawing board!  :w00t2:

...For hamsters!  Hey, we all like hamstercams!  :innocent1:  Trigger the vibe to signal the critter to move along...

Sorry, not my thing personally. Plus, the demo Z10 is now with @Duf now.

There's some guy here saying his 2.5" wide tire makes him crash in wet gravel. At least pee on some gravel and ride that 4" bad boy through it
