The lightest EUC

Recommended Posts

I've been using the IPS I5 for two years already, and I really love its small size and light weight, while at the same time it can do reasonably stable ride on a normal pavement road.  However, I do not see IPS coming up with newer products for this segment of the EUC, while other manufacturers continue to come out with bigger and more powerful and faster but heavier wheels.  Even the Gotway Mtem3 has been out for over two years.  I just want to give a thumbs up to IPS for making this great product and wish they can continue.

I can say the same, I'm just missing my S5 in my collection since the LHOTZ. Where do you ride in HK?

Thanks for your reply.  IPS comes out with the S5 after the I5, but S5 is too heavy for my taste.  I just wish IPS can continue to make improvement on the lightweight EUC area.  The I5 is really good for short distance travel when going to/from work from the Hong Kong MTR station.  I believe the lightweight EUC area will pickup once the authorities work out the laws for personal electric vehicles.  As for most people now, since it is not legal anyway, might as well buy the most powerful and highest speed wheel.

Oh I thought something got sorted out there. I ride mine in SZ when I am there. Yes totally agree, the S5 is nice to have for its better specs but the everyday commuting, the i5 is excellent

I have to say that the I5 is really suitable for crowded street like Hong Kong since it is designed for slow speed anyway.  I usually ride it as slow as the walking speed of most pedestrian and it feels just like walking on a crowded street without bordering others.  However, when the wheel was new, I had tried slowly riding up really steep hills in Hong Kong at my weight of 80kg and it can do hill climb better than my previous Inmotion V5D which tilted before reaching the top of the hill.  This is why I really want to give a thumbs up on the I5 to be used in short distance, hilly, and crowded street just like in Hong Kong.

My weight (including gear) is about 85kg (~190 lbm), what tire pressure do you prefer for me on the i5?

The i5 is such a cool and unique wheel. The perfect device for the actual "last mile" as opposed to general purpose EUCs with 50+ mile range and 50kph speeds. So light and so nice to carry, and riding is good too.

I've ordered an i5 from "green and fashion travaling shop" to commute to work. Just waiting for my tracking number. :clap3:

Yesterday, the small I5 finally arrived after three weeks. After 5 minutes of familiarization I was immediately familiar with the agile device. Very pleasant to drive, in the Android app it was possible to increase the maximum speed to 25 km/h, I have not had any beep noise on the trip. I'm very satisfied. Thumbs up!
