Leaperkim’s Flagship Extreme Performance Wheel

The world’s best wheel is only getting better. When Leaperkim first released the Sherman OG, its first pass at the world’s fastest wheel changed the EUC industry immediately. Until Leaperkim, no company had created such a powerful, fast, durable, dependable electric unicycle.

The Sherman was so famous that our inventory was constantly sold out, making it one of the most sought-after wheels in EUC history. The Sherman-S pushes further limits in its third form with its 7KW high-torque motor, long-range 3,600WH Samsung 50E battery pack, 24xMOSFET (680A peak) drivetrain, and full suspension co-designed by Fastace.

The community has spoken: the Sherman-S is the top contender for 2023’s best wheel, owing to its heavy-duty construction, innovative amenities, and plush 90mm travel suspension. The Sherman-S was designed with long-distance, high-speed riders in mind and torque-hungry enthusiasts looking for the best quality and value for their hard-earned money.

Power

High Torque Motor

As the technology for lithium batteries and BLDC motors improves, the industry makes more robust and faster wheels than anyone could have imagined. For those seeking power and range, Leaperkim has fitted the Sherman-S with some of the top-performance components on the market. The SS is powered by a 3KW high-torque motor that can output 7KW power, taking the boldest of EUC riders past 46+ mph on a full charge.

Leaperkim made plenty of improvements over the original OG drivetrain by providing the SS with more robust, more comprehensive, and lighter magnesium alloy rims, improved phase wiring mounting, and 24 x 125V MOSFETs to handle larger payloads, all on top of a 3,600WH battery pack to provide plenty of high speed and long-range riding throughout the work week commute and long weekend adventure rides. 

  • 3KW/7KW high torque motor for improved off-the-line acceleration and hill climbing
  • High torque motor paired with suspension allows for easy mounting and quick acceleration.
  • High-speed mode rated top speed up to 50 MPH and 20-40 cruising speeds are the sweet spot for most Sherman riders.
  • Rims are reinforced and strengthened for motor protection, off-roading, and higher payloads.
  • A magnesium alloy is used on wheels to reduce weight and increase durability.
  • To improve conductivity, controllers employ phase wire copper mounts, 2x power sources for current, independent communication and driver boards, and 24xMOSFETS capable of handling 680A peak payloads.

Battery Pack:

100V 3,600WH Samsung 50E

The Sherman’s large battery pack can be used for work and pleasure, going fast for long distances. We are frequently asked how many real-world miles our machines can provide, and the Sherman-S can provide up to 90 miles of exciting real-world range on a single charge. The Sherman’s capacity and output depend on how the road is, how much it’s carrying, what mode it’s in, and how fast it’s going on average.

Suspension:

Fastace Mid-mount Suspension 90MM

The SS may be the plushest one-wheel electric vehicle ride to date. When the Sherman-S was first introduced, some riders in the community or skeptics of it opposed the mid-mounted suspension approach. After our first batch was sold out, the EUC community could all agree that the Sherman-S has the most innovative and most comfortable suspension system to date. Unlike other companies in the industry, Leaperkim chose to work with Fastace to create a suspension system for their franchise that was unique to them.

The mid-mounted hydraulic system uses ideas from the mountain bike industry. It dampens like a fork and has a range of up to 90mm and a pretension adjustment of 12mm.
