Electric unicycle - a modern mode of transportation
An electric unicycle is an innovative vehicle that is becoming more and more popular among the residents of Polish cities. Said type of vehicle is typically powered by an efficient electric motor. It is characterized by a remarkably straightforward design. It moves thanks to the user maintaining a proper coordination. The implemented pedals serve as a platform, supporting a person riding the vehicle in question.
Riding the electric unicycle can be described as smooth, efficient, effortless, and notably swift, especially while considering other vehicles of the same type. Our online store incorporates unicycle variants that are perfect for all the individuals willing to start their adventure with electric unicycles, as well as modes of transportation adjusted to the needs of true aficionados of unusual commutation. The unicycle may seem to be a gadget designed with adults in mind, but due to its increasing popularity and compactness, it is gaining a constantly growing group of users - both in Poland and abroad. The electronic modules implemented in the unicycle allow for the proper stabilization of the driver. Sensors, accelerometer, and gyroscope are utilized for said purpose - they are designed in such a way to detect potential incorrect tilt and restore balance by moving forward or backward. Balance calibration in the case of the unicycle works in the same manner as the labyrinth within the human body. The brain, working with the pieces of information obtained from the environment, controls coordination in order to maintain the balance of the body. It has to be stated that the unicycle calibration system operates in a similar fashion. After overcoming initial difficulties pertaining to maintaining balance on the unicycle, the consecutive rides will become smooth and completely intuitive. Thanks to the use of modern technological solution, riding the vehicle on everyday basis will become a pure pleasure.
The main driving element of the unicycle is an electric motor, the power of which affects the maximum speed of movement of the vehicle. The unicycle additionally incorporates a rim on which a standard bicycle tire is mounted. 14″ to 18″ wheels are among the ones that are most commonly utilized in the case of such vehicles. Of course, there are also unicycles with smaller or larger wheels. It all depends on the selected vehicle model. Additional LED lighting installed in many unicycles makes riding after dark notably easier.
Electric unicycles in everyday use
The unicycle does not have traditional brakes that are utilized in the case of multi-wheeled vehicles. Nevertheless, the method of slowing down is easy and intuitive. Braking is based on shifting the weight of the body backwards (which is the opposite of accelerating). Said movement causes the engine to turn into a generator and convert kinetic energy into electric one. It allows to recharge the battery. Said phenomenon is referred to by experts as regenerative braking.
Electric unicycles are a great alternative to traditional bicycles and scooters. What is also interesting is that riding them is just as fast. The compact dimensions of the vehicle make it easier to find a place to park it, as well as to take it with you. Electrically powered unicycles available in our store are selected models from the best global manufacturers, such as King Song, Inmotion, Begode (formerly Gotway), and Leaperkim Veteran Sherman. It is the guarantee of reliability and safety of equipment used in any and all conditions. Riding the unicycle is a great way not only to commute, but also to have great fun.
Modern vehicles of the discussed type are equipped with amortized suspension. Thanks to its use, a spring combined with a pneumatic shock absorber ensures a remarkable riding comfort that is much higher than in the case of competitive units. Unicycles are just perfect for everyday use. They may be rather small, but they are truly powerful machines. They allow for quick and trouble-free commutation, especially in urban environments. In the case of Poland, electric unicycles are constantly gaining popularity. It directly translates into users of unicycles being required to become familiar with the applicable traffic regulations.
Electric unicycle - ranking
As a device, an electric unicycle is typically associated with several leading brands. The ones that are most frequently opted for by users are King Song and Inmotion. It has to be noted that the market of electric unicycles is developing at a surprising pace. In the near future, we may expect new, highly unique models of unicycles to be presented to consumers. A comprehensive ranking of electric unicycles can be of use, as it tells the prospective user what to take into account when buying a unicycle and what capabilities individual units offer.
King Song is considered to be one of the most popular manufacturers of electric unicycles. Within the timeframe of last year, the most frequently purchased model was S-18, which offers top speed of 50 km/h. The effective range of said model oscillates around 50-80 km. Reaching such a distance is possible thanks to the implementation of a 2200W engine and an efficient battery. It is worth indicating that the weight of said unit is rather notable (25 kg). Additional features of the model include a retractable handle and night lights. The discussed unicycle is compatible with a mobile application that can be installed on phones with Android, iOS, and Wear OS.
Inmotion is yet another popular brand of electric unicycles. Without a doubt, excellent quality and original design are key advantages of unicycles offered by the discussed producer. The vital parameter of the frequently purchased V11 is a remarkable range, which is about 60-110 km with a fully charged battery. The discussed model, similarly to King Song’s S-18, can reach the speed of up to 50 km/h, but is slightly heavier. It is one of the very first electric unicycles with amortized suspension. Thanks to its implementation, ride comfort is notable.
What electric unicycle to opt for? What to take into account?
The aspects that the prospective buyer should pay particular attention to when purchasing an electric unicycle are its quality and such parameters as: maximum speed, range expressed in kilometers, engine power, battery efficiency, unicycle weight, maximum user load, as well as additional functions. A stand enabling for an easy storage and parking of the vehicle will for sure be an additional advantage of the unicycle.
It is also worth checking if the selected unit has built-in LED lights that will make driving it much easier, especially after dark. An important aspect that cannot be neglected is the maximum effective range, but top speed is also vital. Higher values of said parameters ensure greater capabilities of the unit. One should also check out battery before making a purchase, as it varies depending on the model. We would like to encourage you to contact our professionals who will examine your both functional and visual needs. Basing on them - they will advise you with regard to the optimal unicycle that should be chosen.
Electric unicycle for children - perfect for initial driving lessons
Riding an electric unicycle grants great fun. It is also an amazing gift idea for a child who would like to start his or her adventure with driving and practicing balance. When choosing a unit intended for a child, it is worth paying attention to the speed limit, thanks to which the child will be safe on the unicycle. In the case of children under 12, it is worth limiting the speed of the unit to 14-16 km/h.
The recommended size of wheels for children is 12 inches for younger kids and 14 inches for children over 10. If the unicycle is to be the main method of commuting to school, vehicles with the effective range of several kilometers should be considered.
Electric unicycle - rules and principles applicable to such units
We would also like to recommend getting acquainted with the rules of driving a unicycle, as they are different in each country. One must always comply with traffic rules set by authorities in one’s country. It will allow to safely ride the unicycle, as well as will ensure the safety of other road users. We recommend checking the maximum speed of a unicycle in a given country. It is also worth checking what types of roads and paths can be utilized while travelling by unicycle. The awareness of the applicable law is important, as penalties for breaking traffic regulations apply in every country in Europe.
Let us remember that the regulations have been introduced to ensure the safety of every road user, pedestrian, as well as a driver using a bicycle path or road.
Electric unicycle - how fast can it go? Is it safe?
Modern unicycles allow users to ride at speeds that sometimes exceed 70 km/h. Nevertheless, one should always use common sense while driving. The consequences of driving too fast can be painful not only for the body of the driver, but also - for his or her budget.
Electric unicycle - range. How far can one go on a single charging?
Unicycles with lower engine power and battery efficiency can reach an effective range of up to several kilometers. For example, Inmotion V8F electric unicycle can reach from 30 to 50 km. More expensive and technologically advanced units make it possible to travel over 100 kilometers on a single battery charge, as it is in the case of Inmotion V11 (up to 110 km) or King Song S22 Eagle (up to 180 km). We think those are both really impressive results.
