In 2018, KingSong releases an 18" model, the KS18, which it offers in two ends: the KS18L and the KS18XL. It has impressive dimensions unlike a more sober and neat design. It is a modern electric unicycle that has all the modern equipment and a devastating and reassuring power. It is one of the models that has gathered the most praise from wheelers since its release. Below we will try to explain why.
|Dimensions||590 mm x 495 mm x 180 mm|
|Distance between footboard and ground||160 mm|
|Max speed||40 to 50 km/h|
|Mileage||75 km actually|
|Payload||330 lbs / 150 kg|
|Weight||46 lbs / 21 kg|
Design and built quality
As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the KS18 has simple lines, with a touch of LEDs that serve both as a battery indicator when stopped and as a decoration. Very reliable, it is very well assembled, it is robust, all in a wheel that breathes quality both inside and outside. The integrated telescopic trolley used as a wrist looks pretty nice. The front and rear lights are round and similar. The matte black shell looks amazing. It is simple, clean, without too much frivolity. Note that the rear fender on the KS18L is different from the KS18XL: a kind of hanging tongue that is not the most beautiful effect. Otherwise, both models are the same.
Engine, power and range
2000W engine, top speed of 50km/h, this wheel is the idea of power made in KingSong. The KS18L offers a battery of 1036Wh compared to 1554Wh for the KS18XL. In terms of real range, for a 75kg person, we are close to the 75 kilometres covered for the 18L and 110 for the 18XL.
Ergonomics and comfort
The KS18 is the second generation KingSong trolley, with sensor when grabbed. It is a Bluetooth connection for portable speakers and mobile applications. Headlight and rear light, light detector, possibility to connect your devices in USB, to enjoy a fast charge with its double charging port (limit of 10A)... The best options out there are included with this euc. She does better than any of her competitors.
So that, it is therefore possible to take an additional quick charger of 2.5A in addition to the regular 1.5A. You can also change your regular pedals to XL pedals. The regular pedals are great but if you're doing 10 or more, it's certainly an investment worth if you want to ride from time to time between buddies.
