HOW DOES THE WHEEL WORK?

The wheel is powered by an electric engine. The system of gyro-stabilisation allows you to keep balance while riding and minimises the possibility of falling over. A wheel actively balances forward and backward. Leaning side to side, you steer it like a motorcycle. Lean your feet forward to go forward, and backward to slow down or stop. The wheel is highly manoeuvrable and easy to navigate over rough pavement and around obstacles. It quickly becomes intuitive and natural once you master the basics.

WHY USING THE WHEEL INSTEAD OF WALKING?

Using the wheel instead of walking increases your efficiency and saves you time. The wheel can cover up to 20 km with the top speed of up to 18km/h, thus it massively boosts your range. It will only take you 15 minutes on the wheel to reach a place that is within an hour walking distance. You can cover 4 times as much distance on the wheel as you would on foot. The wheel also helps you to work out core muscles and improves your balance.

WHY USING THE WHEEL INSTEAD OF A BICYCLE?

Bicycles are huge and bulky and can be hard to store and park. It also requires physical effort to ride, which is good, but not when it comes to your journey to work or other public places as it makes you sweat. The wheel strikes the perfect balance here. It is easy to store and carry around, just grab it wherever you go.
