    WideWheel Keybox for 2019 WideWheel. Disable your scooter by removing the ignition key and better judge battery status with the integrated live voltage display.

    Also to retro-fit your 2018 WideWheel with this original Mercane throttle.

    Easy to install. Note that Mercane changed the throttle connectors inside the top case. If your WideWheel was made before April 2019, you will also have to purchase a new PCB dashboard to connect this new throttle. If you are unsure, open the top case and check if the throttle plugs directly onto the board (pre April 2019) or if the throttle connects to the board via a separate connector in the cable (as of April 2019).

    Excellent product

    This is the best upgrade for one of the fastest and best looking scooter out there.

    It’s an Improvement

    The throttle does give a bit more range/control for takeoffs but not as much as I thought it would be. I think it’s worth the upgrade especially when you add in the key start and voltage meter!

    Easy to install, but design is lacking.

    This new throttle does provide a bit smoother acceleration, but the design seems to be an afterthought. For starters, the throttle side handlebar can no longer fold down all the way due to the key section, as seen in my photo (the black thing is a clip I designed and 3D printed to keep the handle bars from flopping back to the extended state). The key section also makes it uncomfortable to engage the throttle, which has a longer range than the 2018 version. Instead of just rotating your thumb down to accelerate, you now have to poke it with the tip of your thumb to keep from hitting the key. This also requires you to loosen your grip quite a bit just to get your thumb in the correct position. Also, the old model would engage the motors at about 50%. The new model engages at about 25%. So, the dead zone is still a bit much. The only thing I've ever hated about this scooter is the throttle. I love everything else about it. In my opinion, the new throttle could do without the key or the voltage display and just focus on a smoother responsive acceleration and less dead zone. Making it out of metal would also be nice. I had high hopes for this new throttle, but I hope an even better design is released.

    Not really a better throttle... more of a key-start add-on

    Like many other users of the Wide Wheel, the two things about it that I disliked were its jerky throttle and lack of key start. For throttle, you were either not accelerating at all or you were accelerating to full speed in the space of 1/8 inch of throttle travel. This makes the scooter very difficult to navigate anywhere you need to travel at a slow, consistent pace (like amongst foot traffic).

    I purchased this throttle based on the Fluid Free Ride review saying it was much smoother, and had eliminated the issue that plagued the first version. I didn't find this to be much the case at all. The throttle does engage a bit sooner, but it again goes 0-100 the moment the throttle engages. There might be a SLIGHT improvement in ability to ride at slower speeds, but you're constantly having to lift your thumb off and put it back on sofly to create that slower speed rather than just holding it in the same spot at a lower speed.

    All in all, I'm disappointed. Yes, this does add a key start which is nice, so if that's a real issue for you then this solves the problem, but don't expect a totally different throttle. The voltage gauge is ok I guess, but I don't see it adding too much value. Additionally, I like the rubber feel of the old throttle better (this one is just plastic), though that's personal preference. I absolutely love everything else about the Wide Wheel and when I heard that they'd fixed the oft complained about throttle issue, I jumped at the chance to purchase it b/c every thing else Fluid Free Ride has said about the scooter has been totally on point thus far... but this didn't live up to expectations. I really hope there will be an even better version developed soon. Fluid Free Ride customer service has been great up to this point; I hope that continues.
