Buying My First Electric Unicycle

by freshlycharged

A few months ago I didn’t even know there was such a thing as an electric unicycle. Now I find myself searching discussion boards, reading articles, and watching YouTube videos on the subject whenever I get the chance.

I am fascinated by the range, speed, and durability of the electric unicycle. I currently ride and love my Onewheel but the electric unicycle seems like it would be great for going faster and for long distances while the Onewheel excels at cruising around at a leisurely pace and having fun without needed a huge amount of space.

I did look into the electric skateboards but was disappointed in the off road abilities and with the turning radius. I love doing trails and I think the electric unicycle would be more suitable for that.

My research and interactions with experts on the subject has taught me that I want a good wheel that I will enjoy for a long time. I want something that I won’t quickly outgrow so that excludes most 14 inch wheels and all the beginner wheels as the limitations in speed and range will become frustrating very quickly.

At the same time, I don’t want to get something too high end and expensive because my first electric skateboard will take a lot of abuse as I learn how to ride it.

Currently I am leaning towards the King Song 16S. It seems like it is a good balance of speed and range for a beginner to learn on and will satisfy my need for speed and distance as I grow in the hobby.

The site ewheels has been an immensely helpful resource as I learn about the different electric unicycles on the market. If you are interested in purchasing an electric unicycle or just want to learn more, check out
