Kingsong KS18 L/XL User Manual

Recommended Posts

Hi!

New member here, not yet on a wheel (1 week to go!). Living in the south of France. 

 

Awaiting for my brand new wheel to be delivered I was hoping I could get some excitement by reading the user manual but I can find it anywhere :(

Kingsong only provides a 2 pages fact-sheet that is far for exciting. Any idea where I could find it?

 

Thanks for your help!

But to be honest EUC are so simple (one button only) that you probably do not need it

Yes and no. However the manual does imho not really provide too much/anything usefull.

Important is to understand "the overlean" - an unexpected faceplant is not nice. It will take some time for a beginner with a KS18Xl to come into this region, but this limiz is not really intuitive...

So the main thing to prevent an overlean is to not burden (incline, acceleration) the wheel at high(er) speeds.

Thanks a lot @TomOnWheels & @Chriull :)

I will try to keep my head cool even after my learning period but it seams to be wishful thinking. 
Being 45 years old with triple shoulders injuries (motorbike, bicycle, snowboard), I will first try to overcome my fear.

Yes @Chriull is right ! KS18L/XL is very easy to operate... but you need to remain humble to avoid a faceplant... You must really think to never push your EUC to its limits... Especially if you are not wearing full protections.

Congratulations on the new wheel!

Check out as many 18XL video reviews and threads as you can while you wait for your wheel to arrive. Also check out the Learning to Ride section, there's plenty of very useful and informative material :)
