Abstract: The Airwheel as a leading brand in the portable intelligent transport market, endeavors to provide affordable unicycles/scooters for the growing customers as well as to make contributions to a green lifestyle for urban population.
A rideable is something you ride on. It has an electric motor that’s powerful enough to use as a commuting device, and it’s small enough to take into the subway or office with you. The Airwheel, newly established as it is, now emerges as a leading brand in the “rideables” market. Rideables enjoy many advantages for people to get around compared with bikes or gas-emitting cars. However, prices of electric unicycles and scooters stay relatively high that they are barely affordable gadgets for middle class people. The Airwheel Technology currently is breaking down the barriers to green and affordable transport as it sees a growing demand for green transportation worldwide. The Airwheel Technology is committed to making it easier for the world to join the green revolution.
The Airwheel Technology focuses on the research and development of self-balancing electric unicycles/scooters which uses sensors, gyros, and accelerometers in conjunction with an electric motor to assist a rider to balance. Expanding into the growing self-balancing electric unicycle market is proving fruitful. The demand is driven mainly by young trend setters who look and think very differently from traditional consumers and want to challenge new contraptions. The early adopters of this technology are a mixture of students and young professionals looking for fun, easy to use transportation that’s more convenient, economical and crucially much cheaper than the electric bikes or hybrid car alternatives.
Driving cars isn’t a realistic option for everyone regarding that the global urban population has reached 3.8 billion and is expected to exceed 6 billion by the middle of this century. An environmental friendly lifestyle is constantly advocated these days. The Airwheel is working hard to make affordable and eco-friendly alternatives for transportation available.
The unicycles/scooters produced by the Airwheel are easy to learn and highly durable. They offer great fun and convenience for riders whether used for commuting or just recreation.
The Airwheel unicycles/scooters can travel at up to 11 mph (18 km/h) and carry loads up to 264 lbs (120 kg) for distances of about 12.5 miles (20 km). They can be charged from any standard plug socket in just 2 hours and are a fraction of the cost of an electric bike or car. Thus, perfect for people traveling short to medium distances.
