​I ride my wheel almost daily and often think about features I wish it  had and have been making a wish list in my head. I was curious what features other riders wish were standard features.
  1. Ability to turn off speed beeping
    Nothing is more annoying than the beeping when you are on a ​clear stretch and accelerate up to max speed and the wheel keeps beeping at you. I like that it's a safety feature, but I'd also like the ability to turn it off. 

  2. Ignition key to l​ock ​wheel 
    Wheel security (theft deterrent) is an area that I think is significantly lacking across most wheels that I've seen. I live in New York City and need to be able to secure my wheel when I ride from home to another destination. An ignition key would be a great start! Anyone can take my wheel and glide away with it without the need of a key.

  3. Mechanism to chain it up to a secure place (pole, bike rack, etc.)
    Another security feature. A major selling point of all wheels is their portability to lift and carry short distances which makes them easy targets for theft. Many wheels have a handle that can be used to secure to a pole with a cable, but some don't like the Ninebot One series. A built in cable would be amazing.

  4. Storage solutions
    I need a place to store my cable to secure the wheel - or other small items I don't want to carry on my person and otherwise don't need to bring a backpack. This is less critical than other feature and could be solved with an aftermarket accessory, though I haven't seen one yet.

  5. Braking (and headlamp) lights as standard features
    My Firewheel has these and I love it. I have been researching a second wheel to buy and wish more had this as a standard feature. 
  6. Smartphone app as standard feature
    ​ ​Another feature that more manufacturers are providing, but wish it was standard for all wheels. Being able to see the stats on my wheel's speed, battery life, etc. is an awesome feature. 

What else?
