The Segways in principle were devised as a means of revolutionary urbanite movement with which the inhabitants of the future cities, who prefer public transport for long journeys and the Segway for short, apart from cars and polluting means would move, Over the years it has shown that humans still have a predilection for private transport and Segways have not packed our streets, taking rather a discrete market.
A few months ago, during a trip to UK saw a guy passing by the street on a wheel that did not emit any noise and also took a considerable speed, I could not help but turn his head and reached to read the logo: Airwheel (electric unicycle) seeking information about it and I can tell you, all that is of the electric unicycle.
The Airwheel is driven by an electric unicycle gyroscopes that works in absolute silence.
With the same gyroscopic technology that uses the famous Segway, an introductory price of 500 Euros and 25% of its price, Airwheel get a higher level of efficiency and agility at a lower cost 15 times.
The Airwheel used easily and intuitively, but requires little initial training for professionals of the brand, to ensure adequate, optimized and safe use.
In Airwheel the user can scroll speeds up to 18 km / h “With hands in pockets” or talking to the mobile phone, so it becomes a very viable option for urban personal mobility in both shifts planned and spontaneous “There is nothing you can do as a pedestrian you can not perform more quickly and easily with Airwheel“. Its lithium battery allows us to achieve a range of 15 Km away and recharges in two hours.
The Airwheel weighs 9.8 kg and is easily transportable, so with easily accessible public transport to middle distance.
Airwheel mobility with the future takes us directly and causes a surprise effect on anyone who witnesses this innovative device in circulation.
Move around the city in a fun way with the electric unicycle Airwheel
Segway wanted to be the first vehicle to come closer trucking home from work you -in short distance and urban travel. But due to its large size and its high price it has been limited to a tourist or rental use for hours. That space in the urban mobility market it wanted to occupy Airwheel, funniest Self Balance unicycle with you around the city.
Chinese company Airebike is what has created this innovative electric unicycle. So far sales have nine different models that vary in weight-the heavier device is 13.7 kilos and as to the maximum speed can reach 65 kilometers per hour like. All models Airwheel unicycles have similar features: support up to 120 kilos of weight, are charged in 90 minutes, they are dustproof and waterproof and each battery charge has a range of between 18 to 23 kilometers.
Airwheel wants to be an electric scooter for adults and aims to move around the city more flexible. It is designed to cover are very short journeys by car, but rather long walk.
The Self balancing unicycle is composed of a wheel and a similar mechanism Segway: it works thanks to a gyroscope and pedals whose tilt forward or backward–to determine the movement. The passenger can control going forward, accelerate, decelerate or brake balance with the tilt.
The self balance unicycle also includes safety features to avoid injury. For example, when Airwheel automatically inclines more than 45 degrees to one side the control system activates an inclination protection and then stopping the engine. You can also prevent injuries caused by speeding. When the user goes over 12 mph, the front end of the pedal and gradually rise. To exceed 16 kilometers per hour the pedal will tilt up to 10 degrees to prevent the user the radical acceleration.
The handle and the small size of the device for easy transport and storage. Moreover, standing to go without need to grasp unlike Segway– is possible to go with a coffee or talking on the cellphone. The price of a Airwheel varies by model, can find the basics from 590 euros.
