Electric Mobility Can Be As Simple As Sitting On Just One Wheel
Yes, that’s right … just one-wheel.
The Superride electric unicycle caters to the urban dweller who wants a quick and effective solution to reach places without having to deal with the traffic rush every day standing up on one of those single -wheel hoverboards. Both use gyroscopic technology to maintain body balance, i.e. you have to use your body to move and control the vehicle (think Segway – but now with a seat). One would lean forward and the Superride electric unicycle speeds up, go back to pull the brakes and turn sideways to move the cycle left or right – it is really that simple! This makes the Superride S1000 the best electric unicycle an exciting mode of transportation for fitness enthusiasts, youngsters, and dwellers of high-density neighborhoods that are witness to frequent traffic jams.
The Superride S1000 has a chic, stylish frame made of metal and plastic. It weighs about 45 pounds but still is powerful enough to support a full-grown adult pretty easily.
The removable batteries can be fully charged up in an hour or less and retain that energy for hours on end. The vehicle also comes with an LED display, LED headlights, and an electronic horn.
The seat is at a convenient height, though it is not adjustable and hence potentially unsuitable for super tall or very short human form extremes. Similarly, the handlebars can be extended to about 39 inches and are suitable for an average form user. The Superride can be used on all surfaces, although it is recommended for use on flat, paved, and even surfaces that don’t have a lot of obstructions so as to avoid unintended and surprise accidents.
The Suprride S1000 was only recently launched in the market and has created quite a stir, especially among younger riders. It is one of the first electric unicycles with seat, making it perfect for longer travel distances. Eventhough the craft may look fragile and small, it is actually quite strong and can carry about 280 pounds. The 1000W motor installed inside the cycle allows for a mileage of 20 miles per hour, while the LED display gives one an accurate reading of the speed and direction of rider travel. The batteries are replaceable, durable, and save on energy.
