The Kingsong 16X First Ride

Recommended Posts

Amazing new look! I love the new lighting strip. I've always been jealous of the KS16 lighting. Great video!

Thanks for sharing @Kuji Rolls Great video :thumbup:

  •  I'd rather they put a mudd friendlier tire, this one gives the impression it will be slippery on wet ground, a la msx.
  • How high are the foot plates? I hope they are higher than the current ks16s and reach msx's height
  • Why not put the XL pedals by default?
  • The mudguard gives the impression it will work. At least, maybe less of an after fact decision.
  • The lightings look fantastic! Best improvements ever, along with the battery capacity.

Overall, I prefer this ks16x over the nikola. Between ks16x and ks18xl though, the choice will be tough.

This is the first prototype, so the tire may well change still. 16x3.0 tires are available at Ali, so there are be alternatives, unlike with the 18x3.0.

That said, the tire in the prototype is Chaoyang H-5146, which had good grip on my 16S as a 16x2.5. Not slippery like the H-5102 is on MSX. Wet mud being exception of course, as it would require a very much rougher tread.

Looks awesome!  I’m loving  my z10 as a primary mode of transportation- but this 16 looks like a blast!

@Kuji Rolls at 1:09 in the video, you are going forward and then come to a slow stop leaning back a bit and the wheel seems to stutter/jerk and catch you off guard?

was that due to the way you were riding it and just being unfamiliar with a new wheel or some quirk in the wheel prototype/firmware.

I understand it's a prototype and i'm sure kinks are still being worked out and such but just something I observed in the video and was curious about

No upgrade to 100 volt?? disappointing 

Rather encouraging that KingSong is not investing into this publicity stunt.

Sorry....but he just steps off the Wheel to take a look at it from the side? And using one foot those process normally doesnt look that stabil.....

I can only encourage to look a 1:09.....i personally can not see any unconventional here?

Compared to the Nikola, the 16X has much better riding performance.

Thanks for saying that...in the Video it is not quite clear which Wheel you ment with better riding specs :-)

There is no open end in stacking batterys, and the more seriell you get, the higher the resistance gets. 100V has quite some other disadvantages, as it gets difficult to produce those packs.

Also the actual 100Volt wheels tend to consum more Energy and so have a lower range. To my knowledge...Nikola will also only be done in 84Volt.

Looks like it lacks a proper break light.  :-(

Will be done on final Version...Proper Backlight and breaklight like all KS have

According to https://eunicycles.eu/en/16-inch-wheels/134-king-song-ks-16x-1554wh.html the pedal height for 16x is 16cm, higher than the msx ( 14.5 cm according to http://shop.euc.nyc/MsuperX ? ). Does that look realistic?

Edit: I see it is 18cm above. Lost now ... :(

Edit2: msuper x is 16.5cm according to https://www.ewheels.com/product/new-gotway-msuper-x-msx-1600wh-battery-2000w-motor/ ?
