  • First 126V wheel by Leaperkim
  • A strong contender for top 2023 mid-range electric wheel
  • Heavy-duty chassis and premium hydraulic suspension

Leaperkim’s First 126V Electric Unicycle

All Terrain 18″ One Wheel

Power, durability, and comfort are the key traits that can be used to describe the highly anticipated 126V Veteran Patton. The Patton is a performance powerhouse and the latest flagship suspension electric unicycle from Leaperkim, a Chinese premium electric vehicle company specializing in one-wheeled personal mobility.

The Patton has a riding range of up to 70 miles on a single charge, thanks to its high-quality 2,220WH Samsung 50S battery pack. This heavyweight wheel has an aviation-grade aluminum alloy body that weighs 89 pounds. It also has anti-collision battery cases and a mid-mounted oil-based suspension system with 80mm of travel that makes riding over rough terrain as smooth as possible.

The Veteran Patton is one of the wheels with the best performance and excitement for 2023. EUC riders say that Patton’s torque is the peak of raw performance, and the quality of its construction could make it a massive hit in the EUC community. Let’s look at all the specs, features, and design decisions that make this the ultimate daily commuter and long-range adventurer wheel.

Power

High Torque Motor

The Patton is rated for 7 KW of peak power, 680A of peak current, and 50 mph top speed on a full charge. It’s unbelievable how much power Leaperkim has fitted into this 18-inch wheel, providing an insane 126 volts of torque. Granted, the chassis weighs 89 lbs. It will need all the weight it can use to help stabilize this wheel’s raw power. The Patton uses an updated controller system that lets riders change the power settings based on how they want the EUC to perform. 

The 126V controller has a double layer for protection, an aluminum substrate for better heat conduction, and copper bars and columns that speed up heat conduction and heat dissipation under high loads. 

The Patton motor is made of magnesium alloy, has thicker rims and side covers, an oil seal waterproofing process on the bearings, and a rated nominal or peak power output of 3KW or 7 KW! Leaperkim just launched a Bluetooth-enabled Android app that gives riders options for getting system diagnostics and changing settings through their phones.

  • Top speed rated between 45-50 MPH depending on rider weight, road conditions, and voltage.
  • High torque motor provides fast acceleration and easy hill climbing.
  • Two-layer top panels for added protection against water damage, corrosion, electrical shorts, physical damage, and waterproofing to the controller
  • New larger display to show more parameters, system codes, and ride information
  • High-speed mode: max free spin at 52 MPH, max free spin at 65 mph with high-speed mode
  • Angle Protection: 8 levels of angle adjustment; larger value allows for larger tilt angle, acceleration stance adjustments

Battery Pack:

126V 2,220WH Samsung 50S

In ideal riding conditions (smooth surface, medium mode, 160 lbs rider, moderate 20 mph speeds), the Patton can output up to 70 miles of riding or commute range per charge. Thrillseekers taking the Patton off-road, up steep climbs, and high gradients can expect 30 to 60 miles of mixed-conditions EUC riding. 

The 126V Samsung Packs use INR217000-50S cells, 2,220 watt-hour capacity (2 sets, 30 strings, 2 parallel configurations), and BMS monitoring for charging rate and temperature (more details to come). The BMS allows for 15A max dual charge ports, allowing owners to fast charge their wheels last minute before a commute to the office or during a group ride rest stop. Leaperkim has also added anti-collision energy-absorption boxes to the packs, making them safer in a fall. 

All of our Leaperkim battery packs go through stringent QC checks before shipping to our warehouses; they’re covered under our one-year warranty and should last many years.

  • Real-world riding range can vary between 30-70 miles of fast or slow-speed riding
  • 126V system provides unbelievable speed and off-the-line torque
  • Samsung 50S features higher density, higher discharge, and lower internal resistance than standard electric unicycle battery pack cells
  • Low battery mode: low voltage, tilt back alarms

Suspension:

Fastace Mid-mount Suspension 80MM

In 2023, the mid-mount suspension system by Faceace and Leaperkim may provide the best dampening and comfort on the market. The hydraulic system uses Factace technology from downhill mountain biking. It has 12/18 clicks of compression and rebound, 12mm preload adjustments, a 37mm stanchion, and an overall shock absorption strike of 80mm. 

Many EUC riders in the community praise the Leaperkim Sherman-S for having the most comfortable suspension systems on the market; the Patton uses the same patented suspension technology. There are three weight options to choose from. Please reach out to us if you need recommendations. Please note that suspension modules are swappable; please consider full netload when selecting options.

  • 58 lbs Options: for riders weighing up to 175 lbs
  • 62 lbs Options: for riders weighing up to 175-240 lbs
  • 66 lbs Options: for riders weighing up to 240+ lbs

Features:

The Patton features are designed to give this industrial wheel an all-terrain design with useful everyday amenities. 

Display: The updated top-mounted parameter display has a more extensive interface, shows more technical parameters, has a two-layer inner and outer cover, and is better protected from rain. 

Trolley Handle: Leaperkim chose a classic studier handle over the newer folding style. These built-in handles are firmer, adjustable in height, and sturdier by design.

Jumping Aide: The new front-mounted help gives you more control when going over rougher terrain. Leaperkim is the first to introduce this style of adjustable module. Please be aware that the Patton can’t reach its full potential without jumping pads that you buy separately. Leaperkim has not released side pads for this iteration. We stock aftermarket side pads that can be velcroed on the side panels for more control. 

Spiked Pedals: The adjustable pedals are made of Magnesium alloy, which makes them more durable, and they have loaded tension to make them more stable and stop them from flapping around when you’re getting on or off. The spikes have been improved from the last Sherman-S iteration and allow for more grip during acceleration and braking. 

External Buzzer: The external speaker will notify if the wheel is on a lower battery or near cut-out/brown-out speeds and loads. Riders can expect buzzing and tilt back when reaching lower battery voltages (97V, 94.5V, 87V)

Lighting: 2,000LM dual 18W headlights, a rear taillight, and auto-turning signals allow riders to see and be seen in day and night riding conditions. The lighting package on the Patton is some of the brightest lamps on the current market, allowing for safer riding conditions.

Build Quality

While the Patton commands a premium price, it is also a heavy-duty machine and was made to withstand hard falls or spills. The 89-pound chassis of the Patton is Leaperkim’s most advanced design. It was created to help absorb the impact if a rider gets their wheel in a collision.

The body has a heavier, integral 7071 aviation-grade alloy body/handles and dual anti-collision battery boxes, keeping your battery packs and motor safer during a spill. The Veteran series’ design language, geometry, robust build, look and feel are molded after US military battle tanks. 

With the newest crash test videos from Leaperkim, we can see that the Patton shell is unharmed, which protects the battery and solidifies Leaperkim’s reputation for making some of the most popular, well-built, and quality-controlled wheels on the EUC market.

  • First-in-class 7071 wheels with alloy components for lightweight chassis, strength, corrosion resistance, and machinability
  • Leaperkim features some of the highest-created chassis in the EUC market

NEW: Upgraded Samsung High-Power 50S Battery Pack

The most valuable component of any Wheel is its battery pack, the beating pulse of the machine. Over the years it has been found, from painful experience, that pairing a high-powered machine with a battery cell that is not designed for high peak-power applications can result in latent/delayed catastrophic thermal runaway events. To try to minimize this risk, we at eWheels, have insisted the use of high-powered battery cells, particularly on smaller 4 parallel packs, such as the MTen4, A2, T4, S18, Hero, S22, & Master—as the number of parallels increase, the load on each cells decreases accordingly. Until recently, there was the trade-off between power & capacity; now, with the advent of the new Samsung 50S cell, one can have both!

  • Energy Density: 50S has a 20% increase in energy density over the 40T, providing a corresponding increase in range without any weight/bulk penalty.
  • Higher Operating Temperatures: the specifications of the 50S has a vast operating range, from -20 to 80°C/-4 to 176°F vs -20-60°C/-4-140°F with the commonly used 50E/GB cell & as high as 100°C/212°F in Samsung’s test data! This massive margin not only allows the 50S to output up to 3x more power than the 50E, but perhaps more importantly, will greatly improve battery pack safety, there is no conceivable scenario in which these limits will ever be reached, or exceeded.  
  • Power Output: the maximum sustained power output on the 50s is 45A vs 15A on the 50E. At pack level, this represents a total potential sustained output of 15,120W, on the Lynx. From a Rider’s perspective, the main benefit of having this power on-tap is once the pack(s) have been partially depleted, reducing the risk of cut-outs when power is required.  
  • Rapid-charging: another benefit of the 50s over the 50E is charging rates, 2.25x higher, 6A vs 2.5A. It should be noted that although the cell supports the higher charging current, there may be other factors that limit maximum charge rate, such as the charge-port, wiring & BMS components. On the Lynx, the maximum rate of charge should not exceed 16A. 
  • Superior Cycle-life: perhaps the most common misconception of high-power cells is that of reduced cycle-life, but this is fundamentally a misunderstanding of the published datasheet for battery cells. In these publications, Samsung’s data is based on exceedingly high sustained loads of 25A/45A. Other Samsung materials demonstrates that in 10A continuous load scenario, the 50S commands a slight lead over the the 50E for longevity, with >82% capacity retention over 600 cycles.
    It should also be noted that these synthetic tests in no way represent the power demand pattern that is experienced when using your machine, where the average load, on flat terrain, will be closer to 2-3A/cell vs the 10A in the test data—there may be periods where this demand is considerably more than the 10A, which is where the high-power cells really come into their element. In addition, the [50S] 600 cycles were charged at the maximum 6A vs a typical 1.5A (per parallel) with the stock charger, which also has an impact on the pack’s longevity.   

In summary, the 50S battery cell is objectively superior in every measurable metric, with only a marginal increase in upfront cost. It is expected that machines fitted with these packs will retain their value better than other battery cells. 

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is the Veteran Patton electric unicycle made for?Given Patton’s sheer power, weight, and range capacity, this model is perfect for riders seeking a higher torque 18″ wheel with all of the latest and best chassis, shell, controller, and battery technology in an electric unicycle. The Patton would be great for daily commuter riding at high speeds and steep gradients. The Patton is not the best option for absolute beginners. Message us with any questions or parameters you have about this wheel!

Is the Veteran Patton beginner friendly?The Patton is for advanced riders with at least three months of riding experience. While it’s not made for beginners, with the right amount of time and effort used to develop foot muscles and balance, any person can learn to handle the power and weight of the Patton. We recommend this model for advanced riders, but it isn’t impossible to slowly learn on this heavy and powerful wheel.

What’s the top speed?The Patton is rated for a 50 mph top speed at full charge, making this 18″ wheel one of the fastest models. Average riding specs can be sustained from 20 up to 45+ mph. Please pay attention to buzzers, voltage, and tilt back during operation. We’ll update our specs once we receive more performance results.

What’s the real-world range?Patton owners can expect 30-70 miles of real-world riding range. Different riding ranges can vary by total payload, battery charge, temperature, gradient, etc. A minimum of 30 miles of high-speed riding can be expected. Please pay attention to the voltage, buzzers, mobile app, and display for real-time readings.

Is the Veteran Patton suitable for heavy riders?The chassis can handle a payload of up to 265 lbs and is fantastic for heavier loads. For riders seeking more extended ranges, we suggest the EX30, Master, and Sherman-S.

Is the Veteran Patton heavy?At 89 lbs, the Patton is a big wheel. Leaperkim designed the Patton to have a heavier chassis with high speed and stability in mind; early testers noted the wheel not feeling heavy while in motion. The body of the Patton is made of 7071 aircraft-grade aluminum for increased strength, lighter weight, and stress resistance in high-speed/torque applications. Leaperkim has demonstrated durability in recent crash test videos. Even though Patton did well in impact and collision tests, we do not recommend that Patton riders do the same thing. Consider the Inmotion V11, Begode T4, and King Song S22 Pro for lighter-weight wheels.

Is the Veteran Patton better than the Veteran Sherman-S?Like the EX30, Sherman-S owners seek out the larger 3600WH pack for high-speed, long-range riding. While the Patton is equipped with the same suspension system and similar drivetrains, its 126V system excels in torque and acceleration but falls short in range compared to the Sherman-S’s 3600WH capacity. The 2220WH capacity is designed for riders who don’t seek the additional battery range or weight of the Sherman-S. The decision between the two can be challenging!

Is the Veteran Patton better than the Begode EX30?
The Begode EX30 is priced at $900 more and offers a 60% larger battery pack. The EX30 is excellent for riders with a more extended riding experience with blistering top speeds and high torque (134-volt acceleration and torque). The suspension, weight, price, and range will be critical factors in shopping between the two models.

Is the Veteran Patton better than the Begode T4?Begode T4 owners will prefer its lighter weight and lower cost combination. The T4 comes in at $750 less and is equipped with a lean chassis and a Samsung 40T battery pack. The T4 is a fantastic option for budget riders who want a no-frills, lightweight, and customizable beginner suspension wheel.

Is the Veteran Patton better than the King Song S22 Pro?The Patton and the S22 Pro have top-level performance, and their battery voltages and prices are about the same. Some customers prefer the S22 as this model is in stock, lighter in weight, has a larger 20” tire, and has a more significant 130mm dampening than the Patton. The S22 Pro comes with upgraded sliders and a 4KW-rated motor, making it a solid choice.

Is the Veteran Patton better than the Begode Master?The Patton offers the latest technology at a lower price point when compared to our LiTech Begode Masters. Customers like the Master because it is lighter in weight, has a proven 3rd batch version, can be customized, and comes with 134V Samsung batteries with higher voltage options. For a no-frills, high-speed, lower-weight street cruiser, the Master is a viable option to consider.

Does the Veteran Patton have a warning system?The latest firmware has display and buzzer warnings for battery temperature, overcharging, balancing, high voltage, charging rates, drivetrain overheating, and hall errors. Please watch the display codes and buzzers while operating or setting your machine.
