Solowheel electric Unicycle hands-on @ CES 2012
The SoloWheel is a self balancing single wheel-drive unicycle that doesn’t have a sear and is akin to the Segway but different in its own right. The Solowheel does not have an handle bars and full relies on you legs and calm muscles as you tilt forward and back to accelerate and decelerate or stop. This all electric unicycle takes about 2 hours to charge via your walk socket, has a maximum load capacity of 250lbs , top speed of 10 mph and a range of 15-20 miles dependent on the rider. The Solowheel retails for $1,795.00 via Solowheel.com We managed to get a test ride on this unique machine, actually SnatchHatch did most of the test driving. Enjoy and see if he falls off the Solowheel.
