At EUC.NYC we are huge enthusiasts of EUCs and had plenty of opportunity to teach our friends and customers to ride for the first time. Depending on your physical ability, and sense of balance it may take from a few minutes to a couple of hours to start riding comfortably. That being said, myself and both my kids (9 and 11 years old) have been riding Electric Unicycles for a year: on sidewalks, city streets, in parks, and even on hiking trails. Not a single injury so far, but that is only due to high respect for the dangers involved.
EUC rental for experienced riders only and should not be used to learn how to ride an electric unicycle. Learning classes are also available upon request. We've made it our mission to study and evaluate the best and newest EUCs available on the market, and the choice is clear - GotWay brand offers the best riding machines at reasonable prices.
Electric Unicycles are a relatively new mode of transportation. The electric motor built into the wheel hub is powered by rechargable batteries, and controlled by a smart board that uses an electronic gyroscope to balance the unit front to back. How do you control an Electric Unicycle? The controls are extremely natural. Lean forward to speed up and lean back to slow down and stop. Tilt the unit left and right to turn by shifting your balance.
