One or two wheels? Up to you la!

Have you seen someone standing on a strange looking wheel and still wonder what is that? Have you not been introduced to a Wheelie yet?

The strange looking wheel is called a Wheelie. Wheelie is an electric unicycle. To move, all you need is to lean forward to move ahead and lean backwards to slow down or stop going. Your calves should keep as close as possible to the red pads to help in manoeuvring. While it looks hard for you to balance, the Wheelie comes with a self-stabilised gyroscope to aid you in maintain that balance. In theory, all you need is to balance left and right so as to maintain the stability. Always remember to slow down if you find yourself going too fast and losing 
balance. Sounds easy, isn’t it?

Currently, we offer a single and a dual wheel Wheelie. So what is the difference between the two products? Below is a breakdown of the specifications:
