Design and built quality
Black, with a glossy plastic shell, lateral pads of the finest effect, blue light beams at the front, the V5F or Solowheel Glide 2 looks very good. It is supplied with the exterior trolley that is also found on the Inmotion V10. It has proven its worth since the first version of the V5 released in 2015. The whole is robust, of high quality, without any visible screws. It's sober and efficient.
Engine, power and range
With its 550W engine, the V5F can go up to 25 kilometres per hour. Its 360Wh battery allows you to travel between 20 and 30 km per charge depending on your weight, route, wind, and usage.
Ergonomics and comfort
The Inmotion mobile application allows you to follow your route information as closely as possible: journey, battery, energy spent and even a part dedicated to the community (where are the wheelers close to you?). The large side pads allow you to ride comfortably, the trolley is efficient and it is proven since 2015, even if in a fall it tends to open. The pedals, like the V8's, are a little small for our taste, but they are very effecient. We haven't talked about it yet, but the V5 also has the top battery indicator like all other Inmotion products. It is very beautiful and very practical to know without connecting via an application where you are in terms of battery.
If you are more than 6 feet tall, it may be a wheel you should avoid: it goes down very low, which will not be the most comfortable for your calves.
