The bracket that extends from the axle to the pedals. 

Got it. This all sounds and looks very interesting. I can't wait to see and hear more about it in the coming weeks and months as more people get their hands (and feet) on it!

Looks neat indeed! :wub:

Though whine + 45kph makes me hear a little voice echoing from the mountains... "Niiiiiikola" it seems to say.

Let's see the price and more hands-ons...

Is there any info on the motor? Seems to have a huge amount of torque!

Yeah, the shell goes way lower than i'd like. I don't know if it definitively caused some of my "adventures", but i think its probable that some of the blame can be shared. Kingsong knows this and are pulling it back. 

Can you say how wide the tire is?

PICs from the video to see close ups. The size looks the same as the 18L.

Finally I am beginning to understand how Marty ended up (if it really is the end of it yet) with this huge collection of wheels. There are just damn too many wheels out there that are too much fun to ride.... It's that simple, really.

Do you know if it will have a rearlight? Some countries you need this by legislation. I didn't spot on on you video.

I understand that you can probably only share that much and development might still be ongoing. 

A few more questions...

* anything you can share of est weight of the wheel?

* an early comparison to KS18XL and GW Nikola? Just pointers what to expect.

So sooo long until xmas, ehh May/June. I am so stoked anout this wheel. It seems to tag most boxes on my want and need list.

Awesome my devious plan worked.

Good point, these are the changes they're working on for inclusion in the final production release.

1) Shell at the bottom will be cut a little, current one too close to the ground  
2) Pillar, we will revise to Ninebot Z10 style 
3) Add brake light + turning light
4) Make the shell which with LED underneath transparent to make the LED more bright.  

Any word on how waterproof or water resistant this wheel is.

Is the shell one solid piece like the 16s or is it two pieces screwed together like the tesla/ACM/msx

Looks like one piece unless the light strips are seems on one side hiding the split point

$2000 IS overpriced.

We've been at ~1Wh/€ or Wh/$ with the 84V ACM. That is much more fair.

It's more like overpriced vs. even more overpriced now.

Seems inline with for a new wheel with 1554Wh/2000W. To my knowledge all the new wheels spec'd like this are around $2k.
