HOW IT WORKS

The wheel is powered by an electric engine. The system of gyro-stabilization allows you to keep balance while riding and minimizes the possibility of falling over. A wheel actively balances forward and backward. Side to side, you steer it like a motorcycle. Lean your feet forward to go forward, and backward to slow down or stop. The wheel is highly maneuverable and is easy to navigate over rough pavement and around obstacles. It quickly becomes intuitive and natural once you master the basics.


HOW LONG IT TAKES TO LEARN

Learning to ride takes from 15 minutes to a couple of hours, subject to individual fitness level Riding the wheel does not require any special skills, and is designed in such a way that even a child can learn how to use it. It is suitable for people of different fitness levels. Before riding in public places you should practice more to make sure you can steer it confidently. We strongly recommend taking a free lesson at the Firstwheel Academy to master the safety rules and techniques for riding in public places.

 

WHY USE THE WHEEL INSTEAD OF WALKING

Using the wheel instead of walking increases your efficiency and saves you time. The wheel can cover up to 20 km with the top speed of up to 18km/h, thus it massively boosts your range. It will only take you 15 minutes on the wheel to reach a place that is within an hour walking distance. You can cover 4 times as much distance on the wheel as you would on foot. The wheel also helps you to work out core muscles and improves your balance.

 

WHY USE THE WHEEL INSTEAD OF BICYCLE

Bicycles are huge and bulky and can be hard to store and park. It also requires physical effort to ride, which is good, but not when it comes to your journey to work or other public places as it makes you sweat. The wheel strikes the perfect balance here. It is easy to store and carry around, just grab it wherever you go.
