US69 Posted February 7, 2017 Share Posted February 7, 2017 Hey Folks, i want to report about a very nice test done with my KS18, but First Things First: This test is a KS18 1200Watt 1360wh, produced March/2016, imported from China...The wheel has its Flaws!!! Important: It is from one of the first 1200W Batches, where there have been some highspeed fall reports. Also Important:This special KS18 DOES NOT Represent the current state or Quality of the KS18's!!! I have been compensated long ago by the chinese seller/KS, from my side everything is OK with the wheel as -and as stated often before- i am totally fine with a usage at about 30kmh!!! So: It would be a pleasure if we can keep the discussion in this thread on the treadmill test itself, and not on this partly not so good wheel! thanx :-) Now the main Thing As (THIS) KS18 only had a "lift off max speed" of about 43kmh...(and not 48-49kmh like nowadays KS18) i was always eager to know what it would be able to deliver under load, with my 90-100kg on it. In the latest Video's of german seller "electro-sport.de", YouTube Channel Name "great 850", in Person named Ferenc, i stumbled over his latest DIY tool to test wheels in a more real life Scenario, without putting his Drivers to a risk: He has build a "EUC-Treadmill" where you can set a specific load, concrete slabs, to the EUC, and where the treadmill is also connected to a Generator/lightmashine to set up a specific resistance! (street-wind-resistance) After a nice conversation he made me an really good offer to test my wheel on his treadmill and record the outcome of this test on Video!!! How could i resist that?!?! A few days later i send my KS18 to Ferenc, and actually on the same day he recieved the wheel he started his tests :-) A small part of this tests you can see here, as Ferenc has put some of it on his Youtube Channel, with my approval: But thats not all he has recorded! As i got my wheel back by post, i got a complete DVD of the testing series! Really great Job! In our latest communication he also revealed that in a second or later expansion of the testplant he will go for simulating bumps and pottholes by giving force to the attached Generator. I am writing this thread, as i think Ferenc really deserves some Applause for the things he is doing for the community and for Electric unicycling! Also i believe, that i am for sure not the only (EUC)Freak, who is interested in the behaviour of his wheel on extreme situations? Or? Am i? If someone else is interested in testing his machine on some specific things on this testplant....feel free to contact Ferenc, you will find his contacts on his Website electro-Sport.de As you can think, that Service can not be for free, as he is investing some hours in the testprocess alone, charging etc etc.... not to say in carrying your wheel around to the post Office..... but i have to say -for me- it was worth every penny i spent!!!
