Vehicles develop in differentdirections, and from the point of view of urban use, monocycles are attracting increasing interest among consumers. The concept of personal equipment has been perfected by designers for several years, and now the market offers quite safe, functional and ergonomic options. At the same time, an electric monocycle can be a very effective personal transport. A balanced power "stuffing" requires a small fuel supply, which makes such models economically profitable. But these characteristics do not limit the dignity of monocycles.
General information about monocycles
Externally, the device resembles a vehiclefrom fantastic films. Unfamiliar with the characteristics of this vehicle, a person may not believe in the possibility of real operation of the unicycle. Nevertheless, the design of the device is quite workable: in essence it is an electric single-wheel scooter, which is powered by just one button on the body. Also, from the control and monitoring equipment, it is worth highlighting the battery indicator and the handle for transportation.
The base of the hull, as a rule, is made withthe use of impact-resistant material, so the unicycle is not afraid of external physical and climatic effects. Depending on the configuration and the wishes of the user, the construction can be equipped with additional wheels that support the stability of the device. With regard to operation, the single-wheel electric monocycle was designed to facilitate movement in a metropolitan area. This is due to the compact size of the device and its autonomy.
The choice of a monocycle follows in the first placepay attention to the capabilities of the battery pack, dynamic performance and power capacity. The most important indicator of the operability of such devices is the duration of the battery. On average, the battery capacity varies between 100-200 W * h. Such a range of energy potential allows us to cover distances from 10 to 30 km. Of course, much depends on the management of the technical means. Against the backdrop of a full-fledged transport, the electric monocycle has a modest capacity, which averages 450-500 watts. But it is enough to ensure a confident ride, and in some cases, to carry small baggage. The most interesting is, of course, dynamics. However, it is not as impressive as the appearance of the monocycle. Depending on the modification, the device can develop a speed in the range of 15-20 km / h. This is a bit even for personal transport, but manufacturers consciously make strict speed limits, guided by security interests.
Types of monocycles
As a rule, children and adultsmonocycles. In basic modifications the technician is designed for use by adult users. As a rule, this is a functional and powerful monocycle electric, the price of which is about 40-50 thousand rubles. Such models provide an order of magnitude higher level of dynamic indicators. In addition to speed and traction characteristics, the owner of this unicycle can count on a large charge of the battery. As the practice of operating such devices shows, it is the battery capacity that is the most important factor in the safe use of transport.
Presented in the market and the model of unicycles,designed for children. The peculiarities of such modifications include the mandatory presence of side wheels and a central handle, for which the young pilot can keep in motion. These additions allow developers to offer a reliable and safe children's electric monocycle, the price of which, however, is also rather large and amounts to about 50 thousand rubles.
One of the most traumatic means of transportationis a motorcycle, which is confirmed by statistical data. But the electric unicycle is even more vulnerable. If there were not speed limits, the number of accidents could be much higher. Either way, manufacturers are trying to maximally secure monocycles by all available means. For example, the latest models provide for automatic motor shutdown, if the design has a roll of more than 45 degrees. Also, an electric monocycle is provided by a safety device from the complete discharge of the battery. To ensure that the outcome of the energy potential does not catch the pilot unawares, the developers provide warning systems that work when a certain threshold is reached in the battery charge. For example, when the charge reaches 10%, the technician will inform the user about it by means of sound and light indicators.
Comments about Ninebot One
Manufacturer Ninebot One regularly releasesmodels that radically change the idea of the possibilities of personal equipment. In the case of the unicycle, the developers provided two modifications - Model C and Model E. Owners of the first version praise the device for the balanced capacity of the battery, which made it possible to make the design compact. At the same time, a modest charge allows you to cover a distance of 10 km. The second version is supplied with a battery of 240 Wh * h. According to the owners of this version, it can be used not only when traveling in urban conditions, but also on trips outside the city. But it's important not to forget that an electric monocycle requires smooth coverage for a ride, otherwise the risk of losing management control increases. By the way, Ninebot One models are quite easy to manage standing up, give manipulations for acceleration and braking. In order to increase the safety of the manufacturer, he made the frame base of the apparatus of high-strength magnesium alloy. In addition to strength, the design is different and high integrity.
Feedback on the model Inmotion V3
Another interesting development in the segmentmonocycles, which received a lot of positive feedback from users. Owners of this model note the unusual design, the strengthened design and a successful combination of technical and operational indicators. The developers paid special attention to the means of servicing the unicycle. So, for carrying an ergonomic handle is provided, which allows you to easily move the case. In addition, the owners of the device emphasize the durability of driving performance, which provides a monocycle electric in the performance of Inmotion V3. The model develops 18 km / h, and on one charge it can cover distances of 25 km. In the aggregate of operating parameters, this device can be considered universal. It is used both for daily movement in the urban environment, and for recreation in the process of walking in the park.
Comments about Airwheel X8
The model represents the category of practicalsingle-wheeled segways, which are distinguished by wide wheels made of special aluminum alloys. Additions in the form of side wheels significantly increased the reliability of the structure during operation. Moreover, the revised chassis of the latest modification allows the use of an electric monocycle in the X8 version, even on rough terrain. However, as users note, on dirt roads, the dynamic qualities of such equipment still leave much to be desired. But in urban conditions, the owners of this model note high power qualities that provide good traction, as well as functionality. The fact is that designers tried to provide the model with new options. As a result, the device received a floating engine with a magnetic bearing, which allowed to increase power performance and at the same time to reduce power consumption.
The design of monocycles looks modern andtechnologically, however the concept of personal transport is focused on minimalism. The designers are trying to squeeze the maximum out of the modest mono-wheel, but this is not enough to attract customers. Therefore, an electric self-balancing monocycle receives a lot of entertaining electronic systems. Thus, in some modifications, an integrated Bi-channel speaker with a Bluetooth module is provided. Other modern versions receive touch screens that can be synchronized with mobile devices. And not always the nature of the use of such a headset has an entertaining character. For example, through a smartphone, the user can control the monocycle optics.</ p>
