We have had the pleasure of trying it for almost a month.
We are seeing more electric personal mobility vehicles circulating in our cities. In the beginning was the Segway, which revolutionized personal transport in cities, and that made us turn the head every time we saw one crossing to our side, but as things have obviously changed and it is increasingly common to see different electric vehicles of different shapes and colors crossing our side.
This is the case of small Fastwheel, an electric unicycle of people from one wheel, being a practical, versatile, and light vehicle.
The first thing we said when opening the box containing a Fastwheel is small electric unicycle it is. After this first turn it on, just press the red button and the Fastwheel is ready to ride.
But anyone who thinks that is easy to assemble in one of these vehicles, wrong, a lot. The hardest thing is getting used to him and fitted to maintain balance. This is one of the most difficult steps, because you have to have a good balance and teach the mind to drift to avoid falling on one side or the other. To ensure that was not why we we’re clumsy with the balance we invited several people of different ages to try, with the same result.
To speed up this learning Fastwheel offers learning wheels, which are installed on the sides, which stabilize the vehicle so that was not so easy to become unstable and get used to it faster, but as we did not count on this help we had to learn and being persistent.
He struggled a bit, admittedly, but in the end we managed to ride lightly and once you get it starts to see its potential. To go forward you just have to throw a little forward, to stop, you have to straighten and reversing lie back a little. This makes the Fastwheel may be a continuation of your body and the vehicle is directed to where you want with just a little footwork.
For security the electric wheel is limited to 18km/h so there is a great danger of an accident. The vehicle alerts you when you’ve reached maximum speed and slows you down even so maintains its speed and security.
Fastwheel has a 450W motor and different batteries offer four models offering different autonomies.
-The Classic electric wheel 132Wh battery and a range of 15 kilometers and a price of 627 €.
-The Life electric unicycle 170Wh battery and a range of 25 kilometers and a price 760 €.
-The Pro electric unicycle264Wh battery and a range of 30 kilometers and a price of 893 €.
-The Pro Plus electric wheel312Wh battery and a range of 35 kilometers and a price of 949 €.
We recommend you to try, and enjoy as a child.
