Recommended Posts

Hello everyone, I already have two wheels the ninebot one s2 (for small trips) and an inmotion v10 ... I was looking for something more serious for longer journeys and also for use in the city what do you recommend between ... ninebot z10 - rockwheel GT16 and Gotway Tesla?

I'd assume you don't want 18 inch, since you don't have the MSX and the KS18(X)L in your list? From the reports here, they seem to be the actual top recommendation for a serious wheel for longer journeys.

You don't want to wait for the new GW Nikolai or KS16X? They could be very promising wheels!

interesting kingsong KS16x, I wanted to stay on a 16 "maximum wheel, I could make an exception for the z10 ... but the other 18" are too big ...

I don't know the details, but it seems that the z10's were being pulled from store shelves? I think Duf said that eWheels stopped carrying them because of Ninebot's refusal to send replacement parts, and so the only option was to cannibalize existing units. @Hsiang Also reported that Ninebot is getting out of the EUC business after the z10. I guess what I'm saying is that there are warning signs on the z10 front that you might want to look into before going that route.

There is value in having a trusted dealer that can get you parts or service if something breaks or you have an issue.

And as @Chriull said, if you're looking for a cruising wheel with power and range, the MSX, KS18XL, Nikola, KS16X and the Gotway Monster seem worthy of consideration.

I understand what you say you're right but anyway I think that through Chinese online stores you will find the spare parts ... the KS 16x will be interesting ... but also tesla and rockwheel GT 16 seemed worthy of interest, I would avoid the 18 "for their size.

Get a 1600Wh wheel!

No point in having another "low range" wheel when you already have two. All your options only are 1000Wh.

KS16X or Nikola (16 inchers), MSX or 18XL (18 inchers).

You won't feel the wheel size when you're on it:)

If you really want a small wheel, the only 1600Wh small option is getting and old ACM or better ACM2 somewhere. Maybe you can get a used one for a good price.

Tesla seems like the best bang for the buck mid-high level wheel (but with top speed on par with the best)

I was strongly considering getting a KS 16S but the Tesla seems like a no brainer right now considering the nominal price jump.

I think the weight, range, and speed are hard to grow out of, for my needs it seems like an end game wheel (at least until it dies on me)

Have you tried a KS18(X)L?  I thought I would never buy an 18" as it would be too big, and I was looking to buy a Tesla.  After trying out the KS18XL I found it to be a lot more agile than I expected (much better than the older ks18S, and surprisingly narrow, compact and comfortable) so I decided to buy one instead of a Tesla.

Now after doing 400km through London, I think it's the best commuter wheel out there! Best thing about the 18 wheel is the confidence it gives you riding at high speed, I've gone over pot holes I hadn't seen at over 40km/h and was fine, but I would have definitely come off if I had been on a Tesla.
