Kingsong did it again, the world's first full suspension Electric Unicycle (EUC) is here. The KingSong KS S18 electric unicycle is a completely new design, sports inspired body and suspension are going to blow your mind. Aerodynamics with air intake system, aggressive curvature design and variable linkage dampening air suspension system using 200-57 suspension is what makes this unique and of its own kind. The Kingsong S18 has a powerful motor of 2200W, 1110Wh battery, and is ergonomically designed to connect the rider with the wheel, creating a whole new rider experience.
The adjustable suspension is interchangeable and allows for personal modification and custom ride style. The adjustable air suspension system can be turned on or off. The off state still reacts to big bumps but will ride similar to a wheel without suspension. Rotary switch for sensitivity adjustment. Different pressurization can be adjusted to according to rider weight. Padding designed in cooperation with Kujirolls.
Other features include: 12 MOS design connected to aluminum body frame for fast heat dissipation without the need of fan. King Song S18 euc's Headlights are 2 times stronger to the 16X with 2*5w (high beam) and 2*4w (short beam) with automatic sensors to switch between modes. An ergonomic handle designed for pushing and lifting which can be hidden inside the body frame when not in use. First ever high performance wheel with limited wiring with all key components housed on PCB. Rear light displaying battery level, braking and turning signals all within one singular unit. 21700 Battery system for better efficiency to space ratio.
The ks s18 is my first wheel. At first I was wobbly and kept falling off since I was going really slow to get used of things. Then after an hour of struggling I got brave and tried going 10 or 15 km/h on smooth pavement and was surprised to be able to ride and stay balanced no problem. It took me a few days before I could make 180 turns in both directions without getting wobbly and almost falling off. But its been really fun learning to ride and now I have a blast riding almost every day. Such a great looking wheel. So smooth riding and quiet too.
Love and hate this
This is the most fun wheel in terms of going off roads and doing crazy jumps, way better than the Inmotion V11. I sometime hit the bottom shell of the V11, but not the S18. Now onto the hates: not enough battery reserves so I had 3 cut outs and had some injuries as a result, definitely not fun, and I am not a super aggressive rider. nor heavy weight. This is its weakest link. Hopefully the S20 will solve that, and the S20 SPEC indicate it does at the time of this review. Also some body panels fall apart after some hits. Structurally it’s still sound, but it does not look beautiful anymore. So who's this for: if you don't ride aggressively, mostly enjoy off roads and big jumps, then this is the wheel. Otherwise go with the V11, which is less fun but a much more stable and even feel more powerful than the S18.
