First Review of the Veteran Sherman:

5th July Updates

Production #s for batch 1: we had increased the order quantity for batch 1 from 50-100; as of this morning the factory only has 50x of the motors available for first shipment by container date of July 14th. There will be a communication in the next few days of deposit placement dates & shipping arrival times.

Street Tires: 70% of the initial production run will have a street tire fitted (exact model/type will be confirmed in the next few days).

Pedal Dip on Sharp Turns: this reported behaviour from the preproduction evaluation Wheel is expected to be less pronounced dipping on tight turns before shipping.

Display: production release will include a MPH read-out & an improved transparent plastic layer over the LCD interface

Bluetooth App Support: there’s a new beta release of Darknessbot, which now supports the base feature set for communicating with the Wheel for obtaining battery/speed stats, etc. EUC World & enhanced Sherman specific extensions are expected in the next month.

Charge Port Upgrades: the GX16-5 charge port connector will be fitted with wires on pin 1-2 (+) & 4-5 (-) to support up to 8A for a single charger.

Pads: the Sherman will be shipping with a set of pads as standard equipment (picture to follow), our PowerPads are available too at the time of these arrivals.

Fender & Seats: Veteran is working on designing a Custom fender for the Wheel, seats are a lower priority, but should be available within the next 6-8 weeks.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What type of stock tire will be fitted? 
    The Sherman will be fitted with a Kenda K262 20″ knobby at the factory; there will also be an option to have a street tire option, which can also be purchased separately. More information on the brand/model tire will be provided later.
  • Can the Dashboard/Display interface be used to configure the Wheel settings?
    Yes, most functionality such as the riding modes, pedal angle, max speed limits, lighting (including backlight) & calibration can all be set through the LCD interface. Similar to other Wheels, there will also be an App interface, expected support through EUC World & Darknessbot.
  • Will side-pads be included?
    Yes, the pads are current in the process of being produced.
  • What type of charger is packaged? 
    The Sherman comes with a 100.8V/5A charger by default. We will also be offering an upgraded 8A charger, which will be available at the same time the Wheel is released.
  • What type of battery packs are used?
    Veteran have selected to use the tried-and-tested Panasonic GA 3.5Ah 18650 cells, 240x of them, this is twice the capacity of an KS 18XL, MSX 84v!
  • With this enormous 3,200Wh battery pack, what is the real-life one can expect? 
    Assuming a 170lb Rider, cruising at ~20MPH, the typical power consumption on an Electric Unicycle is 25Wh/mile. If these numbers hold up on the Sherman, then this will be the first factory-produced Wheel to break the 100 mile barrier, in fact 128 miles!
  • What are the pedal dimension & clearance to the ground?  
    These pedals are made of a magnesium alloy, with the dimensions of 9.85″ x 5.11″, with an exceptional 6.9″ of ground clearance.
  • Will there be an seat option for long-distance travel? 
    Yes, this is currently being worked on.
  • Are there integrated speakers & lift button? 
    No, the principle design object of the Sherman, like the tank for whom it takes its name, is all about utilitarian performance; dispensing with the common LED array, while the the lift handle would not really serve of much benefit on a 77lb Wheel.
