King Song S19 Electric Unicycle Review: A Quality & Innovative Mid-Level Suspension EUC

by freshlycharged

The King Song S19 is the complete package mid-level wheel with great suspension, speakers, lights and kickstand. You can tell that King Song has learned from their past mistakes and the resultant King Song S19 is a mid-level EUC for the future.

After much anticipation, the Brand New S19 electric unicycle is finally here and King Song has brought back LED accent lights and speakers, making it the best party wheel!

On top of being the best party wheel, I surprisingly found it to be the best beginner suspension EUC to learn on and the King Song S19 is great for riders who do not need insane speed or range but are looking for a solid mid-level EUC with all the amenities.

In this review, we go over what we love and hate about the King Song S19.

Sleek and Eye-Catching LED Lighting: The integrated LED lighting not only adds to the aesthetics but also enhances safety during nighttime rides. It’s both a conversation starter and a practical feature.

Adjustable Air Suspension: The ability to adjust the air suspension is a game-changer for riders who encounter varying terrains. Whether you’re on smooth pavement or rough trails, you can fine-tune the suspension to your liking.

Samsung 40T Battery Cells: The use of Samsung 40T battery cells by eWheels ensures that the S19 offers impressive power without as much battery sag. 40T cells allow you to get more power out of the wheel without sacrificing safety.

The 40T cells offer a high discharge rate which slightly reduces the range.

Sunlight-Readable Display: Riding under the sun? No problem. The easily readable display keeps you informed about your speed, battery life, and other essential data, without the need for squinting or struggling.

Functional Kickstand: A well-designed kickstand is often an under-appreciated but essential feature for convenient parking and stability when you’re not on the move.

Charge things on the go: With both USB A and USB C charge ports, the S19 allows you to charge your phone, power LED lights, or other items on the go.

Secure Charge Port Covers: The fact that the charge port covers stay in place is a testament to the attention to detail in the S19’s design, protecting your unicycle from dust and water damage.

Smart BMS (Battery Management System): The Smart BMS ensures the longevity and optimal performance of the battery, which is a significant factor in the longevity and safety of electric unicycles. It’s great to be able to check each individual battery cell.

User-Friendly App: The intuitive app provides you with control over settings, allowing you to customize your ride experience and stay informed about your unicycle’s performance.

Adjustable Front-Facing Lights: The ability to personalize front-facing lights adds a touch of uniqueness to your S19 and improves visibility & safety.

Great Fit and Finish: The S19’s impeccable craftsmanship, absence of exposed wires, and sleek design make it an attractive choice for those who appreciate attention to detail.

Aesthetically Pleasing: Beyond its technical prowess, the S19 stands out for its modern, sleek design. I originally thought it looked like a toy when they did the initial release, but after seeing it in person it strikes me as a stunning wheel with clean lines.

Outstanding Customer Service: The assurance of eWheels’ exceptional customer service provides peace of mind, knowing that assistance is readily available when needed.

What I Hate About the King Song S19

  • Stock pads are not great for jumping
  • Mixture of velcro and adhesive on stock pads
  • Can’t use customized pads
  • Trolley handle sucks
  • Charge port location
  • Touch kill switch is in a bad location
  • Top speed of 37 mph
  • The range is limited compared to other wheels in the same price point
  • Display placement is hard to read when riding at higher speeds

Stock Pads Not Ideal for Jumping: For riders who enjoy jumping and tricks, the stock pads may not provide the required grip and comfort. The front pad that locks your front feet in place is relatively far from the pedal, making it hard to leverage the wheel when jumping.

Mixed Velcro and Adhesive on Stock Pads: The combination of velcro and adhesive on the stock pads doesn’t make sense. I would prefer all Velcro so you can remove them when you want to without having to worry about the adhesive.

Inability to Use Customized Pads: The S19’s design limitations may disappoint riders who wish to install customized pads for a more personalized fit and feel. The plastic pieces with LED strips are not removable from the sides, blocking the surface area where you would attach customized pads.

I’m sure someone will eventually come out with pads that work with it.

Trolley Handle Quality: The trolley handle doesn’t lock into place so it bounces around when going over uneven terrain, making it hard to control.

Charge Port Location: Depending on your preference, the placement of the charge port may not be the most convenient and may require extra attention when charging.

Kill Switch Location: The location of the kill switch could be more user-friendly. It’s a cool technology that uses a touch sensor to engage the kill switch on the front handle. However, you can easily grab it while seated on the wheel, causing it to fall out from under you.

Top Speed Limit: With a top speed of 37 mph, the S19 may not satisfy riders seeking higher speeds, especially when compared to some competitors in the market.

Limited Range: While the range is decent, some riders might find it limiting when compared to other electric unicycles in the same price range.

Display Placement at High Speeds: At higher speeds, the rear placement of the display might pose visibility challenges, potentially impacting safety and the rider’s experience.

Final Thoughts

In conclusion, the King Song S19 offers a wide range of features that cater to various riding preferences from beginner to experienced riders seeking a solid mid range and mid speed EUC. It’s undoubtedly a head-turner with its sleek design and impressive technology.

However, it’s important to consider the specific aspects that matter most to you as a rider, as there are some trade-offs to weigh against its many advantages. Ultimately, the King Song S19 remains a standout option in the world of electric unicycles, offering a thrilling and stylish riding experience for enthusiasts.
