I hope you will like almost as much as I do. Simply put, feeds amazing to ride or rather cruising again. Feel stable and safe. Easy to loose track of speed.

Oh and one more really nice opportunity compared to my V8. BTspeakers. I used Google maps with direction readout through BT speakers. Useful and people know I am about to take a turn in roundabouts if I meet a cyclist on coming.

Never thought about that, but that's a really good idea.

 

Also I just realised I don't want the one that's been upside down!

edit: and I just received my tracking number, yay! Arrival tomorrow!

I noticed that also, it's a white wheel, hopefully yours is a black one.

I have just come in from my first real ride. At first real slow..took me 5km+ at my lunch break, not succeeding unlocking the 18-20kmh limit?

 

@Rehab1 I used my POC jacket for the first time. Man this makes you feel safe..a little hot but what is expected at 29-32ish Celsius in the sun with out any clouds on the sky.Resized_20180723_125451_8665.thumb.jpeg.db29e57179d92ff8bd4ae1e936894e30.jpeg

Great review! You sound stoked! Glad your protective gear is working out. Awesome photo! The way a true selfie should be taken. :cheers:

No you are not. I can hear you bouncing off the walls and ceiling?

I have just come in from my first real ride. At first real slow..took me 5km+ at my lunch break, not succeeding unlocking the 18-20kmh limit?

Then another 6-7ish km of my evening ride. Until I finally understood why I kept getting invalid setting. 

So simple I didn't spot it at first. You much have highest speed on pedel tilt. I thought at first this was angel of tilt, it is actually speed before til I happens.

Once unlocked I not have setting at 25/28/30/33 if I recall correctly. I am not a speed junkie especially since this is my first real ride since my accident.

So how does the wheel feel? First thought very sluggish and heavy, the this transforms fast into ahh solid, stable,on this I couldn't do on my Inmotion V8...ahh this is simply put AMAZING !!!

Ok there are some pitfalls too...So we are not all into the stars..yet.

Like the lift switch. I miss this but wait out until @US69 have an all good to use statement. It is heavy to carry, I don't want to carry a locked up wheel 56km back home.

Trolley handle and me are not 100% on the same page. But I am slowly finding a trick for me to do as I want. Lock at first extended position. Somehow the rear don't want to lock in position. I get back to you on this point once I confirm my little work around.

I went out on my longest ride yet to date, just cruising along. It feels effortless. Ok my feet started to ache a bit..and some more, but to me pedals are fine in size I am 40-41ish in EU size or 8/8.5 us size. My problem is I lag the mileage since I am still new at EUCs. My total mileage is just short of 400 km as of now.

To me it very nice looking with mudguard and all. Co-workers laughed when they saw it at first, then they went hmm but that is not stupid at all..I like it, itook great. All and every one said this. 

Totally my ride was around 20-22ish km. Tomorrow I bring my cam with me. Today I were a little cautious due to my accident, as I don't want to land on my camera.

Man it feels great to be riding again despite tired feets and legs. My back feels much better now, after the ride.

Oh btw on my lunch break I tested hill climbing on both gravel and bikelane. It just kept climbing, as long I could push a lean into the wheel. Now I am far from a hill climber, so it was down to my skills and lag of stamina I had to go back down. But as for the wheel it passed in my book. Now I can really go out ride forest/gravel pathways. More videos to come on this.

Now 3 weeks vacation comming, and I will have all the time to explore with wheel. ????? I am loving it.

@Scatcat I be commuting again to work. So if you like a test ride just let me know. 

@Kael trust my you are going to love this once you get it.

@Marty Backe this is not a Gotway, but this exactly what I wanted it to do and why I chose it. I couldn't be happier with my choice.

Picture is not Marty-standard, but what can I do ? (see below).

@Hunka Hunka Burning Love I will have to find a bikini site for one of mu upcoming rides. Maybe the sites around the beach just north of Copenhagen. I will have to scout the rides around there. It has been a while since I last went there..back in 1993ish.?

Great review! Thank you for that! Have a great vocation riding! And remember that safety no. 1!

Hi @Kael seems my Polish dealer are beginning to be ready to ship my pre-order. They cleared customs and they now listed as shipping and my order as processing. ?1 pcs of Matt black beauty incomming for my 3 week vacation. ??

@Unventor Thank you for choosing us! By the way: nice review! The wheel is indeed a beast! I can't wait to show you my new vids :) And about the handle: if you have any issues with it - let us know and we will send you a replacement set.

New update at http://www.electricunicycles.eu/
Model                          Motor     Batch       Time   Info
KingSong 18L Matte: 1036Wh    2nd    Soon! LAST MINUTE CUSTOMS CLEARANCE
INMOTION V10F:          960Wh    3rd    July    OPEN DELAYED
KingSong 18L Black:  1036Wh    2nd    July    OPEN DELAYED
KingSong 18L White:  1036Wh    2nd    July    OPEN DELAYED

@Justina how long does customer clearance in general take?

@Unventor It depends. It is usually much, much worse when we introduce a new product. When we introduced V10 and V10F first in Europe, the customs surprised us with a thorough inspection. Of course everything was OK, but it took a lot of time for customs to prepare reports, all the documents and check each unit. Such things can cause an unexpected delay. When the customs are already familiar with the product, it is much faster, usually a couple of days tops. But remember that there are many other factors that affect the time from actual plane arrival to shipping to customers. First it's unloading, then customs clearance, then transport to our warehouse, then our quality control, then shipping :) So even with super fast air freight that we do, delays can sometimes happen.

 

By the way - our preorder schedule has been updated. Another KS-18L stock is in our warehouse right now. If anyone of you want to get a KS-18L shipped like... right now - this is last minute:

Got mine this afternoon! Went for a verrrrry brief 20-30metre ride on my lunch break.

First impression on first time on another wheel: it’s quite different. A little boaty, but the smoothness is immediately apparent. It’s also bloody heavy. But I love the design and construction. 

Keep us in with your thaughts about the wheel when you ride it more and more please!

Yes know the feeling, been there, done that, don't  have the @Marty Backe t-shirt ?.

Hope you enjoy your new wheel as the rest of us, when it is part of your wheel family.
