The KS-18L/XL is getting a seat. Opinions?

Recommended Posts

ohhhh very nice! i will definitely have to pick that up as sitting by squatting in midair gets tiresome after a while haha.. its foam and takes up the entirity of the top of the euc so i would imagine it would be distributed fairly evenly.. at least for my weight i have zero worries about it,, i also have the white inner frame.. which puzzles me why its white but whatever as long as its not prone to cracking lol..

From what I've been told, the black innerframes were discontinued due to being weaker. Something about the color, or whatever was in the compound to make it black actually made it more prone to breaking. I dont have the details. I think it may have been ecodrift that talked about the upgraded white innerframes. And when i ordered my replacement, thats what they sent me, with the new lift sensor. 

Im a bit heavier. Im still working on getting that down. And now that im actively talking to ladies again, you can bet your ass im working even harder, LOL. More range, and girls. Thats the fuel to make me healthy. I have a problem.

I was told about the cracking shells from people on the forums, but i never thought it would happen to me. Until it did, lmao. SO i had to deal with the lame ass transfer to the new case. IT was horrible, haha. But yeah, ive never heard of it either, and I havent heard about it with the white cases either. Unless someone wants to pipe up with pictures of their busted cases. I wonder what the inside of the 18s looks like, and how they managed to keep it from snapping.

I'd be keen to know your source... This is the first that I have heard of it and I communicate regularly with King Song. Feel free to PM me if you want to discuss more.

Saw people asking Vicky about it for quite some time, and she finally said "Okay!" then they started working on them. Seems like its a month out and they're doing preorder but theres no price listed. A friend told me it'll be the same as the 16X seat. Which I also don't know the price of, lmao. But heres the render of it. 

The seat(s) for the 16X and 18L are being made by a third party... So until they actually reach the riders, we may not know the quality of them and how they actually ride.

What do you guys think? I recently had to fit my XL with a new inner frame as my last one broke, but I now have the white frame, which is holding up beautifully. I havent heard any reports on that frame breaking before, but people werent sitting on it. Ive seen people warn against it and so on, so what are we thinking about this official one? The way its positioned, will it help distribute weight? Are other big wheels with seats made differently to allow them to hold the users weight safely/more efficiently? 

 

I did a search to see if this thread was already made and didnt see it so i made it. If im wrong, mods, please feel free to delete my thread! Thanks!

Very exited and thanks a lot for sharing that content! I would like to buy that add-on seat blindfolded because I´ve always been a great admirer of the 18S concept. My 18L  fulfills most of my needs but I´m still getting tired after some additional miles requesting ongoing breaks. This might be a perfect solution.

I would be glad for any  information where to buy on Ali or elsewhere.

I tried to pm you but it wouldn't go through, but it may just be a mobile thing so I'll try when I get home. It wasn't directly from kingsong as they didn't answer me directly when I asked about it. It was from ecodrift from a translated page. And if my memory serves me correctly, it was also repeated in a video they made. I didn't want to state the original statement as fact though which is why I made sure to add that I didn't have all the details and added that "I heard". But I can go back and edit it to be clearer if necessary. I don't want to accidentally spread false information as facts. When I got my new case, they didnt seem to have any in black with the new lift sensors. It would be great to know for sure though. I'll try to pm you the sources when I get home if I can find them again.

Thanks for the info! I'm going to order one of the first batch and be a guinea pig for it, so we'll see. Haha. I'll be sure to film my progress if learning to sit down, successfully sitting down, then breaking my frame for everyone.

I was quoted $90 for the seat including shipping.
