Hello verybody...

GOTWAY V3S+ 1600WH - 84,2V

 KINGSONG 18S 1500W/1680WH - 67.2V

 

Could you help to mak a choice? I like kingsong because the confort to ride on seat and the visual..

Gotway as far as i now, is powerfull because the 84,2volts...

can you give me more information and pros and con about both?

 

Thanks.

To say it as easy as possible:

Gotway V3s+: Speed and Performance Champ!

KS18S: A Little less Speed,but plus Quality and Safety, and usable Accesoires like Light and Music!

 

Also: There is a Search Funktion above!!! Just use it ;-)

Hello

To my decision:

"KS18S: A Little less Speed,but plus Quality and Safety, and usable Accesoires like Light and Music!"

Safety... the possibility to seat when riding. 

Everybody say that KS18 is very safety and thats important for me. 

And the visual of the unicycle: i like the fact that is tall - sorry my english is not so god.

 

But safety is the more import, because they are very similar in the other aspects.

We are talking about the 18S here....Afaik it has a cutoff lift speed of over 60kmh?

Also the both motor drivers of KS/GW are not comparable....tests on belts and testrigs have shown, that the liftcutoff of a KS is nearly same to the cutoff on a treadmill under load...while on GW on a tresdmill under load the cutoff happens a lot before liftcutoff...but other than that we are near together :-)

I have had V3, upgraded to 1160wh, and Ks18a, 1360wh to the same time...

Hard to make a decision....My Ks18 is more stable....while the V3 is more agile...i love both the same! And:

Both i dif not drive over 35kmh....while i could have, but in my view all above 32/33 kmh did not feel comfortable and secure anymore...so i heard the 80% alarm of the v3 not more than 2 or  3 times!

For what i o ordered a Ks18s then? for the much, much more power, safety and reserves it has!

Also with the 18S i will for sure not go faster as 35kmh.......

 

Still looking forward to your 18s review

I eventually chose the KS18S too!  I started with the ACM 1300, then the Gotway incident happen with Marty, then they announced the firmware fix.  I got a KS16 and love it!  Could use a little more speed, I bump the 30km/h speed limit all the time.  When they announced the fix, I was thinking maybe get the Msuper instead, but then I thought about it more since I already have the KS16, it would be more of the same, but faster.  I decided to go with the KS18S because it was the same weight and wheel as the Msuper, but has a seat.  I find that I can only ride about 30-45 minutes before my feet get really sore.  Maybe with the seat I can ride longer!  

KS is much more safe than Gotway.  They don't push their product to the max like Gotway and make their customers test the limits.  LOL

I also love the bluetooth speakers!  I ride with my music blasting.  On the KS16, the speakers are not that great, I'm hoping the KS18S speakers are better.  I should be getting mine end of the week or early next week.  Jason just create the label to ship.

I know is too late, but a comment on your comment...

I had the chance to ride an MSuper v3s+ last weekend, and after a 3 something hour ride (with stops), I hadn't had any foot pain at all - something I didn't even realise until the next day.

LOL, if you have 3 of the same wheels and you want to get a 4th that is similar?  Yeh, it gets boring, isn't that the reason you get the monster vs msuper vs acm?  they are different in their own way, if not, why make them?

:)  I have multiple wheels for variety, but none of them are boring. Ultimately, any EUC is fun fun fun :clap3:

I've outgrown the one I learned on, both the Airwheel X3 and Ninebot One is very boring to me.  Not so boring when I was learning. :D

But take that Airwheel X3 with you in a car, as an example. And you are someplace far away from home and you have a little bit of spare time as you're waiting for something. The Airwheel would than be fun tool around.

It's all relative, and fun :D

Yep... Right now I'm 6673 miles (10739 km) away from my wheel, and I'd be stoked to have any wheel available for tootling about!

Are you still in CA? Thought: If you are going to buy one, take delivery of the MSuper from Jason's warehouse, ride it around and then have him ship it to NZ.

No, no purchase yet...

And yes, I'm still in CA - currently at Pismo Beach, tasting wine!
