The unicycle is powered by a fast-charging, Samsung or Sony Lithium battery. It takes no more than 45 minutes to charge
When fully charged, the wheel can travel for long distances. (15 to 60 km, depending on the model and use) It can reach speeds of up to 18kmh! The electric motor rated power 350W, is also capable of doing uphill inclines of up to 30 degrees.
The amazing self balancing unicycle is easy to master. Much like when learning how to ride a bicycle. You can add stabilizing wheels until you get the hang of things.
It uses a unique self-balancing gyroscope with automatic correction. You don’t need to balance forward and back and only need to practice your left/right balance.
Although children easily learn to ride, it was primarily made for adults. It is not a toy but a practical and environmentally friendly mode of transport.
You only need to tilt forward to move forward and slightly backward to slow down or move backward. It allows riders to travel wherever pedestrians go – including sand and dirt tracks. To steer left or right you just shift your weight to the left or right as appropriate. Once you learn to balance you can tilt your body at an angle to turn, much like when riding a bike.
The electric, self balancing unicycle is your ideal commuting alternative. An excellent tool to get to work, school or just amble around the park or city. It has a built-in carrying handle. With a weight of only 10 kg, you can easily carry it around with you.
The unicycle or Airwheel can pick up speeds of 15 -18kmh/ 10 – 12mph. It’s safety features however, make sure you don’t go too fast. It leans backward when the speed gets too high, forcing you to slow down. On down hills it will not increase in speed. It uses that extra energy to charge the battery!

What is the maximum weight of the driver?
The maximum supported weight to ride an electric unicycle is around 120 kg. We would recommend getting a model with bigger battery for users above 100kg. This will give you more power to move you around.
Is it legal to drive an electric unicycle/airwheel in my city?
The electric unicycle falls under the same laws as Segway, so if a Segway is allowed then self balancing unicycle is also allowed.
