Speedie Posted February 27, 2016 Share Posted February 27, 2016 Hi, I'm looking for advice on selecting a second EUC. My first EUC is an Airwheel X8 which I have had for just on one year now. I use it to travel approximately 2-3km twice a day from home to the train station. While I have enjoyed learning to ride the X8 and it's convenience and overall feeling of using it there are a few things that I would like to improve upon. The features I would like to improve are; being able to configure settings, having a more powerful / torquey motor & battery package (more specifically, the route to the station is up hill and in some parts reasonably steep. I am 85kg and in these sections the X8 really struggles. it feels as though it is ready to give up - it does feel at the very limit of it's ability to climb. I'm not sure how to understand motor ratings - each manufacturer seems to have a different way of describing the wattage plus I suspect the quality and battery discharge capability to feed the motor under load can make big differences, so a bigger motor rating isn't necessarily the right measure on it's own I'm guessing.) and finally the form factor (the X8 does look a little dated now). I'm happy with a top speed of 15 to 18km/h for safety reasons so outright speed is not a priority. Finally the terrain is a little bumpy with curb and guttering to contend with so a 16inch wheel is preferable but not a must. I have been looking at the following EUCs (in no particular order) as a replacement and would be grateful for any advice you may have. Solowheel Xtreme IPS Zero Ninebot One Pro (not sure if these are still available - any other Ninebot applicable?) KingSong 16A Any thoughts you may have are greatly appreciated. Apologies if I have posted in the wrong area. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
