trya Posted November 12, 2015 Share Posted November 12, 2015 Hello, experts! Please help to select the new wheel based on your experience - I'm trying to make a decision based on 2 factors: maneuverability (wheel size) and weight (battery size). My riding style is mostly cruising for fun, learning tricks, acquiring as much control of a wheel as possible (I'm not a speed freak - I'm the "control" freak). I learned on Airwheel X8 and also tried a few other wheels: Solowheel Classic, Ninebot One E+, Gotway MSuper. Based on this selection, my impression was that lighter wheels (X8 and Solo) were easier to control, they have better response, more maneuverability. However, Ninebot was also surprisingly agile, even though it was 3 kg heavier. MSuper is the beast - it is great for travel, but is a lot more difficult to control when trying various tricks and riding exercises. I never tried 14-inch wheel, and I believe that the 14 inch wheels are probably more agile and maneuverable... I have a few questions to those who rode different wheels: is this correct that 14-inch wheel will give a rider a lot more control than 16 inch? how strong is the effect of weight? if you ride the same wheel with a different battery (say, 320wh and 640wh) - how the extra weight affects the maneuverability and control? how does wheel design affect the ability to control? is there, for example, effect of "classic design" (Airwheel) vs. round design (Ninebot)? are there other factors affecting the maneuverability? I understand the the "responsiveness" (soft/hard pedals) also affects the ability to control, but this riding mode can be changed via apps in almost all contemporary wheels - so perhaps this is not much of an issue when making a selection.
