Mono-wheel – it is a compact type of transport, which is a single wheel with footrests located on the sides and a support for the shins to support balance and hold the device, the design may have a handle for carrying. The device is suitable for traveling to work or for a walk, its compact size allows transportation in the trunk of even a small car. Control is simple: tilting the body forward starts the movement, deviation to the left or right changes the direction of the rolling of the mobile.
How to choose the right monocycle
- The maximum speed, which for different models varies from 12 to 50 km / h;
- Range determines the capacity of the battery, the value shows the mileage you can expect to ride before recharging;
- Engine power determines both speed and range, and maintaining their values with changes in rider weight. Thus, a monocoach with a weak motor loses speed when the weight of the driver approaches the maximum or when the machine moves over small irregularities on asphalt pavement;
- Wheel diameter should be larger, the higher the rider’s body weight;
- The weight of the wheel is important, it is important to choose according to your strength: from 6 to 30 kg, it is desirable to have a handle for easy carrying;
- Wheel type – single or twin affects partially the stability of the rider.

Rider weight is limited to 120 kg, it is inversely proportional to the gaining speed, but in general, the 800-watt motor behaves decently even on the road with a slight slope. The 406mm wheel diameter is not small, but for a comfortable ride on city roads, it’s perfect. By the way, the weight of monocolet only 13.6 kg – a distinct advantage over the leader of the rating.
The design of InMotion V8 deserves attention: it brings to mind motifs of Spielberg movies – futuristic diode lighting on the sides reminiscent of a flying ship, in the dark, the unit looks great. But the headlamp doesn’t light up the road very well judging by the reviews, so it’s better not to ride in total darkness. On the sides of the body you can attach soft pads that soften the support for your shins, especially in the learning phase of riding.
The monocoach can be controlled from a mobile app, where you can monitor riding speed, battery status and even the temperature of the controller to prevent it from overheating in hot weather over long distances.
