I hope you stepping away from Kingsong is not a result of your dissatisfaction with the direction Kingsong is taking. Do you have some form of confidentiality agreement, or can you spill all the beans on the development of this wheel or any other future endeavors?

 

All the best.

As you may have heard there are some rumours being spread. When a private chat is screenshotted and taken out of context it becomes a very dangerous situation. I'm here to help clarify a few things th

I wanted to inform everyone that I have official left my position at King Song as of end of September.  I do not represent KS anymore. It's been a wild journey full of ups and downs, and I've learned

I hope KingSong finds somebody with good enough English to continue being "interface" between Chinese team and rest of the world - boss of KingSong shall have some obvious thoughts by now that such person and direct feedback from key customers helps in growing business and development / new constructions.

KingSong delivered great products before Jack and they will do after. I personally expect the same level of production quality and innovation (and stuff-ups) from KingSong without Jack. These things are typically depend on the culture/philosophy of an organisation rather than one talent. I suspect S20 was largely Jack's baby. But it may be a little bit too ambitious for any manufacturer at this stage. Who knows, maybe they could be better off if they just stuck with a more conservative approach to their next wheel design (as per the neighbouring thread started by Jason about the voltage)... 

But it is thrilling to think what "great" looks like looking at the renders of S20. So, thanks Jack! Let's see what you can do for the wider industry in coming years! ;-)

Hi folks. I'm new here. I've preordered the S20 as well. To be honest, I had it with the suspension issues and constant pumping of my S18. I'm really hoping the coil suspension is the answer to all my issues. The design of S20 is awesome looking. Jack did a great job. I just hope the weight and height won't be an issue in maneuverability. We'll see.  :)

Al.

It appears the S20 has made it’s way to some distributors. Brace yourself, more S20 videos coming soon… 😂

The display is right sized for the wheel! My old eyes should be able to see that. Without readers!

It does look easy to see. I wonder how it does in direct sunlight? DOes it ONLY show speed? Oddly enough, I never look at my speed on my sherman. More important for me has always been battery level. Does the ks20 screen have options to show the important information like temp/battery, or just the ego information like speed? I wonder if the speed is inflated, making it about as usefull as an ice cube in alaska, and just as honest as a politician..

I hope so, but I also really hope that configuration options are kind of low on the priority list at this stage.

I do expect that because the display is a bunch of giant dots rather than a proper "screen", you may not be able to show very many things at the same time. It'll probably cause much gnashing of teeth.

it would be nice if you could select what information or make it 'scroll' from one to the next. Tho I agree, theres more important things to worry about. It aint like I wouldnt toss a samsung on it with eucw and hide the screen in the end, anyhow. Im looking forwards to how these turn out after about 6 months... I guess it would be WAY too much to ask for, if one wanted to be able control settings from the wheel/screen as Veteran does.

I agree, the display looks well thought out. Looking down to see anything is not a good idea, at least the made it big and clear.

What tire is on there? :huh: Definitely doesn’t look like the knobby from the reveal video. 

and it doesn.t look like the rim is wider as promised. Maybe on gen2 :)

Which distributors?  Any idea how many S20s have been sent out?

To me, it looks like the Kenda 272 tire

There are some marks of (heavy?) use - scratched handle and pedal surfaces. (Or they are just poorly painted on this tester.) But where are other videos, reports?...

If that's a 3inch tire, then in that video the rest of the wheel looks crazy-wide by comparison.

Maybe the perspective is skewed by the lenses (the image does look a little warped/weird)?

No kidding. But I guess a jockey can pilot a thoroughbred at 40 kph, and they're fairly wide. I thought they stuck a 2.125" tire on that it was so skinny.

if it is anything like the s18, temp is not important anymore, it never goes up :)

Advantage of the tunnel between the wheel and the area that holds the board.
