The first generation comes with a 88 wh battery before a bigger size battery of 132 wh and bigger motor size wheel was introduced much later. With a reliable product at an affordable price, Airwheel sparked an increase in uptake of electric unicycle usage in Singapore, with 9 out of 10 wheels in the market sold being Airwheel. It has reached a divine status where whenever someone see a unicycle, they will instinctively shout "AIRWHEEL"
Fast forward to 2016, Airwheel lost its place as market leader to other more sophisticated wheels. Other than having an outdated design, it also lose out in style, design and features. People don't really buy Airwheel these days despite the rock bottom prices. Lest we start to forget about Airwheel, there are certain points I would like to point out
- It's still the most durable wheel in the market. The wheel that I had in 2013 is still working fine despite the horrendous knocks it suffered
- It does not have any crap gyroscope issues that is associated with sub-$300 wheels manufactured by fly by night factories
- It does serves its purpose of a last mile transportation tool with its up to 15 km distance
- Unlike Hoverboard that catches fire easily, safety is assured
While it may not have the mileage KS16A can provide you, an on-the-move music player like an Inmotion V3, the cool APP of Ninebot One E and a performance wheel like Gotway, it does serve a market where price is of a concern. Given the wheels that is available in the Singapore market, Airwheel still offers the best value for money and an ultra reliable wheel.
