Is the KingSong S18 really made by a time traveler from the future?
KingSong has made the community quake with its new wheel for 2020. The S18 is a very good stepping stone in the company’s upward reputation and technology development. But where KingSong competitors chose a classic design such as The Veteran Sherman’s, KingSong draws inspiration from the future. Will the bet be successful? Let’s find out!
The system is undoubtedly more sophisticated than anything before. Will it really prove to be more effective when riding? Yes, it does.. Note that some photos show a prototype S18 fitted with a Fox-branded shock from the mountain biking world, but final models are likely to perform just as well. With this new system, the rider should be able to adjust the suspension according to their driving condition or rider weight, a first in the world of electric unicycles!
Technically, the KingSong S18 is a 18-inch wheel that has a 2200W motor supplied with 84V by a 1110Wh battery. This configuration provides one with a top speed of 31Mph (50km/h). One charge can produce a max range of 62 miles (100km). The S18 can handle rider weights of up to 120 kg and can recharge in about 6 hours with the included charger. Add on chargers can reduce this time to 2 hours. Equipped with a 3-inch wide tire, the EUC only weighs 22 kg, which is 5 kg less than its suspension competitor from Inmotion the V11.
The other big upgrade related to the design since KingSong chooses to go against the standard of a full wheel enclosure. The S18 adopts a largely openwork, both on the sides and on the top of the wheel. These openings refine the wheel’s aesthetics and give it an aggressive, futuristic character which has certainly made a revolution in the EUC market. We’re already fans!
So what is the answer? The S18 surely looks like it is from the future. It surely functions like it is from the future. It has all the features needed and more! This beauty will definitely define its place among the elite in the market. The community is watching this EUC with great interest.
