- New: This is Leaperkims‘ first 126V wheel and their fourth Veteran model.
- Fast: The Patton is among the quickest and most potent on the 40-50 MPH EUC market.
- Demand: Many EUC riders are enthusiastic about this new model’s design, suspension, torque, and 126V current delivery, with many placing orders for the 2023 riding season! Leaperkim may have the best reputation for build quality, components, and raw performance;
- Best: For 2023, the Sherman, Patton, and Begode EX30 models appear to be the most popular for the EUC market and our analysis.
- Things to consider: Hefty wheel, expensive, and first generation. Second batch models can come in mid or late-summer.
- EUC Redditors and forums are getting hyped for this wheel.
Preorder Now for Shipping In May.
If the global shipping gods permit, the 680A peak load drivetrain value proposition is shipping in May, possibly in early summer/late spring if the worldwide market allows it. Not just yet, let’s not forget the price; the latest Veteran offering commands a $3,099 price tag, no small bundle for honest working folks like us; too bad are speed thirst may be too intense for financial reasoning.
- Batches: A total of 28 units are included in the initial batch. The second batch of models will be delivered in a few weeks and will be identical to the first batch in terms of features. As the supply might be limited, it is recommended to place an order now to secure a machine.
- Quality Control: The first batch of models has been delayed to improve the bearings. Minor issues of the first batch have been addressed, and the new AOSEN bearing is now being used to deliver better performance than the previous one. The updated design includes pre-compression in the bearing cover to reduce play and an oil seal process to prevent contaminants from entering and seal the lubricant. Additionally, the motor wiring has been modified to offer better protection against water.
- Shipping: After receiving approval, the first batch is expected to arrive in 5-6 weeks from now. Leaperkim is also prepared to ship soon and is projected to arrive in mid to late-May.
- New hit: Drawing on insights gained from prior Shermans and Abrams models, it appears that Patton has great potential and could be a major success in 2023.
Heavy Duty, Full Velocity.
Heaviest, most powerful 18″ electric unicycle
On a superficial cosmetic level, this wheel speaks to me for its design, statement chassis, and branding. While I’m not a personal brand whore regarding clothing (even in New York City), I only want things I paid for. In this case, I’m paying top dollar for a top wheel. The 50 MPH 7KW Patton could be it, even at 39 kg. Sure, it only has a 2,220WH battery, and that’s by design. I don’t go that far, but others will demand a 3 – 3,600WH pack; I can hang with 2,200WH.
- First 126V wheel by Leaperkim
- A strong contender for top 2023 mid-range electric wheel
- Heavy-duty chassis and premium hydraulic suspension
Not everyone has a weekend to spend riding wheels, hanging with the boys, and burning some good rubber. The rest of us what a high-quality machine to get and take minor hits of the 126V system on the way to pick up our dinner; we fall into the segmentation that wants the best performance package to get around town and up steep climbs without a hitch…and we’re willing to drop some big greens to get it.
- Shipping: You guys better hurry up; the first batch is expected to ship in early May; limited supply for this first run of wheels; preorder now to reserve your machine in time for the summer riding season.
- Price: $3,099. With an initial $1,000 deposit & $2,099 payment before shipping out. Costly electric wheel warrants price with all the top features and performance specs. It’s probably the most durable and most potent wheel to date.
- Performance: 50 mph. We estimate the top speed to be 44-48 mph on GPS. The actual cruising range will vary between 30-40 mph. Expect speed alarms and tilt back when reaching top speed limits with lower voltage.
- Range: 70-mile range. The real-world riding range will be 30-40 miles based on typical lithium battery performance and past tests.
- Chassis: 89 lbs aluminum alloy chassis. This is a big wheel, don’t expect to lift this machine easily up a flight of stairs or into a car. Please consider the weight and living conditions before purchasing a wheel of this size and density.
- Battery Pack: 2,200Wh/126V pack with Samsung 50E battery cells. A fantastic choice to help keep the weight and price down of the model. For more range, consider the Veteran Sherman-S; it has similar features, suspension, motor, and a larger 3600WH battery pack.
- Motor: 3,000W high-torque motor [7KW peak], a no-load max rotational speed of 70MPH (not riding speed!). The Patton uses the same engines and a similar controller to the Veteran Sherman-S. This wheel may be one of the fastest during this writing.
- ESC: All new electronics/controller, 24x MOSFETs with 680A peak load! Sherman-S has a similar controller with a 100V system. Testing videos have been released showing its raw hill-climbing ability.
- Dampening: Adjustable mid-mount suspension shock system, with a rebound, up to 80mm of travel. The same suspension system as Veteran Sherman-S was co-developed with Fastace. The SS and Patton may have the best plush suspension system.
- Tires: Choice of street knobby or street tire. We like the knobby for all-terrain conditions; if your primary riding surface is flat, the street tire may be a better choice if you want the best traction for grip.
- Features: Robust kickstand, 2000LM lighting, braking/turn signals, built-in trolley, Improved display (angle protection, waterproofing), robust aviation aluminum body, improved anti-collision battery protection, broader/thicker motor/rim covers, oil sealed covers, dual 15amp charge ports, adjustable magnesium-alloy pedals
The T4 + Mountain Slayer
Leaperkim rumors are true; Patton is the latest Leaperkim scion
Ten-hut! Arlight cadets, we’re excited about this model; the EUC community has been agonizing over his final specs and build quality for months! Regarding the release date, Leaperkim still has their lips sealed about when their following, and first, 126V significant voltage +50 MPH beast will hit the market.

105 KMH Free Spin Speeds? Take My Money Already.
Will the smaller rim and tires sustain such high speeds on the road?
That doesn’t mean this wheel is light by any means; there are rumors that it will weigh in the 80+ pound* category (this weight spec may be corrected later). It’s a little bit lighter than the Sherman-S, but every ounce counts when you have to lug a machine of this caliber over a flight of stairs.
by u/thatsmymoney from discussion Anyone else HYPED for the VETERAN PATTON!?
126 Big Voltage Medium-Weight On-n-Off-Road Champion
I’d have my fair share of close calls of throwing out my back trying to get my wheel into the office; this one’s a little more promising. Looking at the sturdy magnesium alloy chassis, height, geometry, and top love handles, the Veteran Patton looks like a force to be reckoned with. Prayers have been answered; the community has been demanding Leaperkim up the ante for a higher voltage wheel; the Patton is the answer to any all-terrain situation you can face. Why not take the path unpaved? You have the knobby tires, oil suspension, and high torque motor; it can handle it and more.
- 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
- Patton chassis was designed to be strong, durable, lightweight, and provide a high level of protection to its battery pack and core components, essential to the performance and reliability of this machine for the long term

126V 3KW 18″ 80mm Suspension Electric Unicycle
A first of its kind and size, the V13 and S22 are the other 126V models
A new market leader in the midsize category. Can you imagine a 126V system on an 18″ Leaperkim build? You don’t have to; preorder now because the beast is coming in May. What comes next after there is a jump to 126V? Could the Sherman-S be configured to a 134V configuration? They’ve already crossed the 100V threshold; there’s no looking back now.
- 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
They said it was for battery efficiency and safety, but you must follow the trend and push the boundaries in the arms race for the top-performing wheel to keep up with the competition. The 3600WH pack is already there; Leaperkim would need to re-engineer the wiring, controller, and motor to sustain the higher current. It’s not easy to reconfigure; this takes time and proper planning.
- 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 50E features higher density, higher discharge, and lower internal resistance than standard electric unicycle battery pack cells
- Low battery mode: low voltage, tilt back alarms
Competition Drives Innovation
Regarding these midsize wheels, 2023 has brought us a paradigm shift in what’s expected in the battery voltage and overall high torque configurations. Many people want more compact wheels and demand more power and torque. Many don’t want to carry a 100+ pound wheel; it’s too damn heavy! Could this be the end of the 3-kilowatt-hour battery packs that dominated the extreme performance scene?
And to add more anticipation into the fold, more wheels are coming. Don’t sleep on King Song, Inmotion, and Begode. Rumor has it that they are also releasing new flagship 18-inch models to compete in this exciting medium-range space.
39KG though? We demand answers.
Does weight affect performance in terms of stability? How heavy is too heavy for you?
The initial reaction to the Patton has been mixed, with people concerned about the weight specifications. On the one hand, the prospect of a 126V Veteran with its high build-quality reputation excites riders in the community. On the other many people are saying that the high torque performance compensates for the heavyweight while riding. Many of us can attest to this when we ride our Begode Masters and Sherman Max’s; the sheer power creates a load-lightening effect when the velocity kicks in, and you won’t feel its total mass while accelerating.
Technical Riders Aren’t Convinced Yet.
More metal, more weight, more stability?
Is taking this wheel to the trails and ride jumps even practical? I think it depends on the technical skill of the rider. The Leaperkim team has released plenty of videos showcasing the torque. This wheel can climb on the steepest of gradients. How will the total weight of this heavy wheel affect its rideability and control?
It’s still too early to tell, but the early reports have been glowing and rosy. From a military standpoint, it’s known as the Patton – perhaps there’s more to be learned and revealed about the engineering decisions behind this full-armored, battle tank-inspired powerhouse wheel.

Damn, that’s expensive; how much?
She’s going to be pricey. For a big beefy wheel of this weight, performance, and size, I predict that this wheel will run about $2,400-$3,000 (price is $3,099 per eWheels). It is Leaperkim, after all; these guys would instead go big than go home. 2023 looks pretty interesting in the mid-range wheel segment; maybe demand will prove that smaller and more portable wheels are more desirable in today’s climate.
Many people are going through layoffs and inflation right now; small wheel saves some funds in the piggy bank. We’re reaching out for pricing information from Linnea.

Second, it is heavy, making it challenging to balance and maneuver, particularly when starting or stopping. Finally, as with any electric vehicle, there is always a risk of mechanical failure or other malfunctions, which can lead to accidents.
In addition, because the 126V Veteran Patton Electric Unicycle is designed for experienced riders, it may not have the same safety features or user-friendly controls as beginner models. This can make it even more challenging for inexperienced riders to learn how to ride and control the unicycle, increasing the risk of accidents and injuries.
While the 126V Veteran Patton Electric Unicycle may be a thrilling and exciting vehicle for experienced riders, it is not recommended for beginners or those without significant experience with electric unicycles or similar vehicles.
If you are interested in trying an electric unicycle, it is essential to start with a beginner model and work your way up to more advanced vehicles as you gain experience and confidence.
