After the ceremony opened, Jeong Jin Ho captured the attention of the audience by demonstrating the Ninebot One S2. Following a short and stylish feature film about the futuristic product, he unraveled the mystery surrounding the Ninebot One S2 and demonstrated its unique charm.
All aspects of Ninebot One S2, from exterior design to product performance, have shown the company’s expertise with single-wheeled products. Behind the futuristic and minimalistic outer style lies industry-leading technology and a user-friendly design.
A humanistic engineering principle is applied to maximize user comfort in riding and ensure equal satisfaction with style and experience. Users can customize both the exterior and battery design, including the battery, shell, and accessories.
Ninebot One S2 has made another innovation in its single wheeler series by providing an entertaining and interactive experience at a weight of just 11.4kg, with the 14-inch tire designed to provide the most comfortable ride possible. Light and flexible, the vehicle is suitable for beginners. It is easy to carry, and can be used in many scenarios up to a high speed of 24 km/h and a cruising distance of 30 km. It fully satisfies people’s demand when it comes to short daily trips.
Customizable battery, shell, and light
Ninebot One S2 has a battery pack installed on either side, and either can be detached to lower the weight and alter the max speed and distance. Most of the vehicle’s shell is left untouched, so you can get creative with your own designs. Ninebot One S2 provides thousands of dazzling lighting effects, which can be set as required via your Ninebot app, making a fashion statement on the road.
Simplicity outside, sophistication inside
The smart BMS monitors the lithium batteries in the vehicle, detects the voltage of each cell in real time, minimizes faults, generates an alarm and cuts off the power when a fault is detected to protect batteries and guarantee your safety. The powerful electromotor and imported high-rate battery pack ensure high performance on narrow roads, grassland, potholes, fine gravel, and slopes up to 15°. Fully sealed IP54 protection applied to the electrical system ensures smooth riding on rainy days or muddy roads.
Smart phone management and instruction video
By connecting the device to the app through Bluetooth, users can watch the instruction video to quickly learn how to ride, check the vehicle’s running status at any time, customize settings, upgrade the firmware, and share on social media at any time.
