The MTen3, a 10″ Wheel, is so small, is it really practical?
Although it’s a relatively new addition to Gotway Wheel line, among the Wheel aficionados, it has a strong & rapidly growing fan base. A 10″ is not suitable for every terrain, especially dirt trials, or pot-hole ridden roads, as the small tire will struggle to surmount any but the smallest of obstacles.
The speed specification is listed as 25MPH, how is this possible?
This small but wide high-performance motor motor, with a nominal 800W output motor, similar to what is found in the larger 14″ Wheels. As the Wheel diameter decreases, there is a lot more instant torque, giving you the sensation of rapid acceleration.
Are there different battery sizes available?
Yes, we will be supplying both the 325Wh & 512Wh battery packs as options, both of are 40x cell pack. The 325Wh is fitted with the Sony 18650 V3 2.25Ah cells, while the 512Wh pack has the high capacity Sanyo 3.5Ah cells, each has the same power out-put rating of 10A
I’m slightly over the 220lb weight limit, does this mean the MTen3 is not for me?
Manufacturer weight limits are recommendations rather than hard-and-fast rules. If you respect the Wheel, not over-stressing it by jumping off high curbs then it should be acceptable up to about 250lb.
Is pedal ground clearance an issue?
With the previous Luffy it was more problematic on sharp turns, in the MTen3, the pedal height has been raised by .75″ to 4.75″ which is about the same as you’ll find on the 14″ MCM4.
|Amazing amount of speed and range in an ultra compact form factor. Very easy to pick up and learn due to prior EUC experience. The 3" wide tire makes it fairly stable and learning to go backwards on it is much easier than on larger EUCs although it is not advertised as a beginner wheel. I also own a Onewheel XR and only time will tell which one I like better.|
|This is an excellent wheel if you want something lighter with the power to get you around town. I think it's best as your second wheel rather than your first wheel; although smaller people (I'm 200lbs) might find it easier. I learned on a Ninebot E+ which rides very smoothly on bumpy roads. This one bounces around a bit on bumpy roads It is really easier to maneuver on nice surfaces and easy to carry around.|
|My first EUC. I weigh 200lbs and the torque is enough to get me up hills. Two drawbacks of this unit - 1) the small wheel will make the rider feel every bump 2) sometimes the unit will waggle back and forth at high speeds. Positives - high speed - 20mph is comfortable, good battery, good range, fits in a gym locker, robust - I dropped it 20 times and it just keeps going fine, charging takes a few hours. I really like the unit. Perfect for last mile commuters.|
|Powerful and agile little wheel. If you look for something small, that has also enough power to go some distance, this is definitely the right wheel for you. It can even handle my 240lbs easily. My son 140lbs rides it to school and gets about 15 miles out of a 90% charge. But he's testing the speed limit on most of his rides. It's small and light enough to be carried around easily for a daily commute. It's other main purpose probably is for tricks because the small wheel allows for some amazing maneuverability. You can almost turn on the spot. The wheel is not a beginner wheel, since for its agility it is much more difficult to learn on than my 18" MSuperV3. But if you figure out how to ride it it's so much fun.|
|The MTen3 is my first wheel and it has exceeded all expectations. I’ve had it a week and rode 70km. By now, I am comfortable riding it and I feel as if it responds to my thoughts. I wish I had purchased this years ago. The wheel accelerates quickly and feels satisfyingly torquey. I’ve never fallen (except the very first time I tried to stand on it), but it has come out from under me a few times due to my errors. The bottoms of the pedals are scraped up and there are a few scrapes around the edges. The scratches don’t show on the white parts but they do show a bit on the black parts. I can go slowly and I can go fast, but I don’t feel comfortable faster than 18mph. My feet get tired after about 20 minutes, but every day I have more endurance and can go further. The sides of my calves hurt for the first few days. The MTen3 does not struggle when I put my two children in a double-stroller and push them to and from daycare which is a bit less than a mile through the city. I mostly use this vehicle for downtown commuting in a major US city. It fits in my gym locker! I don’t go down (or up) curbs with it, but there are no shortages of bumps, dips, and cracks. I’ve had it out in light rain before with no problems. I’ve also taken it on a few longer bike-path trips which are very enjoyable. It is easy to pick up and carry like a briefcase and only one person in a hundred will notice that I’m carrying something uncommon; people probably assume it is a cooler or a trendy bag and don't look twice. It fits in a standard paper grocery bag (if I want to be very inconspicuous).
1. Downloading and Side-loading the app took a few attempts.
2. The seam in the plastic opposite the underside of the handle is rough enough to cut your knuckles, especially when you try to carry it while wearing wrist guards. You can mitigate this by putting a piece of clear (scotch) tape along the seam. I wear thin, fingerless- UV gloves under my wrist guards which protects me from the seam.
3. It does not turn off when you lift it up.
4. The on/off beep is very loud and you have to hold the button for a few seconds.
5. The handle should be rounded for ease on the hand; as you will be carrying it a lot.
6. I wish it included a cover.
Caveat: This vehicle can be carried around easily and inconspicuously, but before you purchase, make sure that you can comfortably carry 25lb pounds in one hand. In conclusion, I am fully satisfied and delighted with the MTen3. It is great for last-mile commutes, errands, and joy-riding. It is very practical for anyone who can easily carry 25lbs in one hand.
