Sketch Posted October 9, 2016 Share Posted October 9, 2016 I've really gotten hooked on EUCs lately and just purchased 2 new 16 inch wheels. Today my focus was on the ACM and I thought I would give you my thoughts on this wheel. The wheel I learned on is the KS-14 ultra and the only one I can compare it to at the moment. Starting with the box, I have to say that I like what Gotway has done with their package graphics. The white Gotway box with its exploded view of the ACM is a nice clean and interesting look. Taking the ACM out of the box was just as impressive. The weight was not as heavy as I thought and the matte black simplistic look was one reason I pulled the trigger on this one. No bright multi color text across the case which I appreciate. The gray side pads are very soft and comfortable. This is one thing I can't say about my KS14. I purchased the v2 with 12 MOSFET and pedals with red rubber inserts. These pedals have a magnet which holds the pedal in the up position apposed to the King Song which uses spring tension to hold the pedals in place. I heard they now produce a larger pedal that has grip tape instead of rubber grips so I decided to purchase those. Before swapping the pedals I wanted to give the ACM a ride straight out of the box. I have to say that you will not get me testing the speed limit on this wheel. I feel comfortable keeping my speed under 20 mph and feel safer that way. I put the ACM in Comfort mode and this mode compared to the stiffest setting on the KS14. The pedals at times felt like they were tilting a bit too much forward. I may have to mess with the tilt calibration. I tried the sport or madden mode, but it hasn't felt right yet. Maybe it's because I'm use to the King Song. I went on an 8 Mile ride and I definitely felt the increase stability of the 16 inch wheel. Plenty of power on and off road. I was riding in warm weather, but had no issue with overheating. This wheel was a very enjoyable and fun experience. After 8 miles my feet did hurt a bit and were somewhat numb. I'm hoping the larger pedals will help with this. Overall my first impression of the Gotway ACM 16 was very positive. Makes me more curious about the MSuper v3 and how smooth and stable that must be.
