Inmotion V8 Series Wheel Evolution

Inmotion V8S vs V8F

Building on the strength of the V8, the Inmotion V8S is the latest iteration in the series, offering nearly 50% improvement in battery capacity/range over the V8F, by packaging an additional 20x cells in the package.  

  • 728Wh Battery Pack: this is the key attraction of the V8S, while weighing just 1lb more than the V8F, it offers 50% great range, with a great power reserve.
  • ‘Light weight’ 16″ Wheel: coming off the scales at just 33lb, just 1lb more than the V8F. There is no other comparable 16″ with similar specifications & weight. The nearest contender is the King Song 16S, at 38.5lb. If have portability is your main consideration, then the either V8F, or V8S is going to be the Wheel of choice.    
  • Uprated Performance Specs: while 3MPH extra speed may not sound all that significant on paper, in actual day-to-day usage, it feels considerably zipper. The main complaint on the V8, was “I love the Wheel, but just wish I had an extra 2-3MPH additional speed”. Now with the 1000W motor (2000W peak), the V8F/S is expected to fulfill this desire to have a bit more speed headroom & reserve power for getting off the line & hill climbing. 
  • Larger Pedals: at first glance, something like the type of pedals is fitted with may seem trivial & insignificant, but when you consider that the only interface between you & the machine is the pedals, this component takes on an altogether different aspect. Historically, Electric Unicycle pedals were much too small for the typical Rider with >9′”feet, where 1/3 of a large foot would be without any pedal support. Manufacturers have finally responded with larger, gripper 9.5″ pedals for greater foot comfort. 
  • Ergonomics: another minor gripe on the V8 where the bulbous leading edges at the top of the Wheel creating an undesirably pressure point against the legs. In time Riders adapted to the design & the protective cover/pads, helped to minimize discomfort. now that V8F is fitted with new molded side-padding to make the ride more comfortable than ever before.  
  • Larger Tire: fitted with a 2.125″ tire for greater control & ride stability, the V8F is less ‘twitchy’ than before.

  • How good is the water-protection on the V8S, can I use it in the rain? 
    Going back to 2016, eWheels has sold close to 1000x V8s. Based on our experience, there has not been a single reported case of water induced damage of this model. Compared to other designs, the V8/F/S has a fully enclosed battery case, with silicon injection to help protect the battery from water ingress. There are also rubber seals between the housing & controller bay; from a design standpoint, the V8 series remains among the best water-protected Wheel being made.  The manufacturer’s recommendation is that you can Ride the V8F in light rain & damp road surface, but try to avoid using in a heavy downpour, or leaving it outside exposed to the elements.
  • Is there a warranty with the purchase?
    Yes, eWheels offers a one year warranty from date of shipment, this includes labor & parts for non-consumable elements like the controller, motor & battery pack. Tires, innertubes, damaged sustained as a result of accidents are outside the scope of the warranty. We offer our Customers the choice of either taking on the repair themselves, or sending it in for repair at our Tucson service center, the shipping costs are not included.
