The Airwheel is a unique and innovative method of personal transportation. This product is a one-wheeled electric scooter which uses gyroscopes to keep riders on their feet. Similar to the popular two-wheeled electric scooters which were recently featured, riders simply lean forward and backward to move around. To make corners, riders lean left or right. The electric scooter comes with automatic tilting adjustment to ensure that you will never tilt too far.
Mostly, these types of products are depicted as smaller and simpler electric unicycles. Don’t let the thought of riding a unicycle scare you, though. The Air wheel electric scooter is a safe and fun way to get around!
The Air wheel self-balancing electric scooter weighs around 25 pounds which means it is not something you want to carry in your hands. For this reason, many riders choose to buy an optional backpack which is recommended for this product. The Airwheel folds up and easily fits in the backpack when not in use with room for more things to be added like books and notebooks.
With only a 90 min charge time, this thing flies at a max speed of 11mph and a great 15-mile range. This makes it perfect for touring around a city or morning commutes.
For riders who are scared of first getting on this unicycle, it comes with training wheels initially. Through multiple talks with buyers of the Airwheel, it takes about a day to ride. Universally, they said to wear safety gear at first (see our top choices) but it’s easy to pick up.
If you’re scared about riding an electric scooter with only one wheel, the AirWheel comes with multiple safety features shown below. Besides these, AirWheel’s software comes with a patented algorithm to ensure that you will never lose your balance.
