InMotion V8 Gyrowheel
Gyroowheel with bluetooth, long life battery & LED lightning
The stylish and powerful InMotion V8
The InMotion V8 is the big sister of the InMotion V5F that succeeded the InMotion V5 +. On the menu, we finally have a true cruising speed with peaks at 30km/h. To this is added the front light, the rear brake light, the skateboard way grips on the toe-pads, which are very comfortable and rounded for tight turns, with side cushions.
Its unusual look make it a very attractive electric gyrowheel. Indeed, the LEDs that seduce both for security (being visible at night) and for fun, no longer form a single circle, but now innovate by splitting over 3 circles whose animation can be parameterized via the application.
About autonomy, InMotion V8 announces 40km. This may seem like a lot for 480Wh, but it should be noted that the InMotion engines are particularly optimized and efficient. Thus, the nominal InMotion 800W engine consumes less than other engines at 800W.
The very versatile Inmotion V8
About driving, this wheel is very flexible, and is perfectly suitable for all experienced riders, but also those who start. With a maximum speed of 30km/h adjustable, this wheel can be used daily, without any danger (we advise to set it at 24km/h max).
The battery gauge in the front position is among the most readable. When the battery drops below 25%, the last bars display in orange and red, which attracts attention to secure its driving and slow down. A blue strapping turns and scrolls around the 5 bricks that constitute the gauge, as soon as you put the wheel in motion.
The Bluetooth application, which exists since 2012 is particularly neat : light switching, firmware updates, InMotion community.
The integrated trolley is now indispensable for all wheels. It should be noted that, to date, no safety wheel for a European adult weighs less than 10kg. In this case, the InMotion V8 trolley is among the most discreet and ingeniously arranged. Unlike the InMotion V5, the InMotion V8 allows the charger to be connected directly without opening the trolley.
In spite of its large number of features, and its engine power worthy of its 16-inch competitors high performance, the InMotion V8 gyrowheel is not overweight. On the contrary, it remains thin and light at around 13.8kg.
On the practical side, it is surprising to see that removing the battery before boarding by plane is now quite possible.
