The Future of Electric Unicycles – A Fad Here to Stay?

Posted by Tom Lee on


When a new trend in transportation or tech emerges, it is not always easy to know whether it is a fad or here to stay. Sometimes a new technology emerges out of the blue but just as soon as it appears, it fades away. It is therefore important to look deeply into a new product before you can judge whether or not it is a fad.

We all have seen Electric Unicycles, also known as E-wheels. They arrived on the market with a boom and quickly everyone was into them. When they were first introduced, they were generally simple and were simply seen as a potential replacement for bicycles. After that, however, there have been many advancements to increase their usefulness.

New Trends

So what if you have the absolute best in the market? What do you get? Nowadays, E-wheels are made in a way that a user can link it to his phone! You can even listen to music, have a headlight, or have access to a full diagnosis tool that lets you know of any faults in your E-wheel. These new developments have really made a user’s life more comfortable and more mobile. Clearly the manufacturers have an interest in further developing their product, but still, does that mean that it will last long?

These advancements are in part apparently part of a quest to outdo bikes. Let’s examine whether this is actually a possibility. Firstly, E-wheels are highly portable. They have a maximum average weight of about 15 kg, so you can easily carry them along with you. Many models come with a convenient retractable handlebar. It is fitted like a suitcase making it easy to carry it with you anywhere including on flights.

The most surprising feature on E-wheels is the Bluetooth customization that helps users access and play music. Bluetooth is built in and allows the user to have full control of the device, as you’re even able lock it and power it on using a mobile app. This has shifted the biking paradigm since in the biking industry this has not happened like it has on the E-Wheels.

Secondly, there is a diagnosing feature that is typically only found in modern cars, but this is where E-wheels have shifted to. It incredibly easy to have a full diagnosis of your Electric Unicycle before starting a ride. This increased overall safety since users can be conscious of the condition of their Unicycles all the time and in the case of a fault, they will be quick to notice it.

The ability to link e-wheels with your phone it has been seen as a breakthrough and has increased their reputation as true automotive alternative. On the other hand, they’ve also become known as The King of Biking. All you need is a smartphone to have the application that controls your electric unicycle.

So given these fancy recent developments, let’s take an overview of everything in order to place a final verdict. E-wheels are a great option to use in many situations, such as shooting videos, and from getting to point A to point B without much effort. Their mobility extends to all categories of surfaces including on concrete, tarmac, grass, stadium surfaces and many others.
