This year is the time for a transport revolution. I came across a great new invention, bought one and have been using it daily since September. This amazing item is called a Solowheel.
Solowheel looks unusual. It is a one wheeled personal electric vehicle. It is not much larger than a brief case. It weighs 10Kgs and the wheel is the ONLY moving part.
Whilst it looks impossible to use (as it has only one wheel) it actually took me about 20 minutes to learn how to use it. Once learnt – never forgotten, rather like riding a bicycle…
Solowheel is the ideal method of getting from A to B when the distance is a bit more than you want to, or have time to, walk. I use it to go to the village shop which is one and a half miles away. I also use it for getting around town.I park on the edge of town and then take the Solowheel in for the last mile; it means I no longer pay Cambridge’s extortionate parking fees, which can be nearly £10 for a couple of hours.
Solowheel is great for commuters too. It can be carried onto a bus, train or aeroplane and used at both ends of the journey. It will take you up to 10 miles on a single charge and takes from 45 minutes to 1 hour to fully recharge the battery.
Solowheel actually goes up quite steep hills. I rode mine straight up Park Row in Bristol. but the range will reduce if you go up hill all the time. However it does recharge the battery when you are going down hill again!
Solo wheel Limited will start distributing Solowheels this year, so get in touch if you want to know more.
