Introducing The SoloWheel Glide 3

By | July 2, 2022

The first self-balancing device was the Segway. The hoverboards followed. It’s time for self-balancing automobiles of the future. The SoloWheel Glide 3 is a self-balancing electric unicycle that makes travelling around town enjoyable and convenient.

The ReadWrite staff had the opportunity to “Glide” around in one of these for a bit, and we are here to share our thoughts with you.
A self-balancing electric unicycle, or EUC, is the SoloWheel (not our term). The SoloWheel has a top speed of 19 mph and a range of up to 31 miles on a single charge. However, our group does not advise immediately accelerating this to its top speed.

Another major benefit of the SoloWheel is its range. You should be alright as long as you leave the charger at home or the location where you usually stay. The drawback of all that strength and reach is weight. A bit over 30 pounds in weight, the SoloWheel isn’t the most enjoyable to tote around. Not to mention, it has poor stair climbing abilities.

It’s a good thing that the SoloWheel Glide 3 does have a retractable handle so you can move the wheel around like a suitcase. Since you can now walk about with it considerably more easily when you aren’t riding,

All further specifications are available here.

To Ride Must Be Difficult, Right?

We’ll be open and honest with you. Riding the SoloWheel obviously has a learning curve.

It can be challenging to keep a correct balance at first. Any forward or backward lean will cause movement because the SoloWheel is extremely sensitive to your movements. I strongly advise grabbing onto anything substantial when you initially start off. Additionally, make every effort to ensure that it cannot be torn from the wall.

The greatest method to learn is to practise leaning while standing in the gap between two doors. Leaning back and forth, grab both sides of the doorway. Your body and mind need to be trained to believe the technology. Once you’ve gotten comfortable with this, try driving it without holding on to anything. We advise choosing a wall or table that is 10-15 feet away and riding over to it while attempting to keep your balance the entire time.

You can take it out for longer rides in the parking lot if you’ve had enough practise at the office (we don’t advise riding this in the office).

You should be able to ride it around town after around 3 days of riding. Again, trust and balance are the key factors. Once you master those, everything should go smoothly.

Summary

The SoloWheel Glide 3 is an expensive device. It costs $899 USD at retail. Having said that, it is a well-made machine and is priced appropriately.

The Solo Wheel Glide 3 should be taken into consideration whether you’re seeking for a new toy or a pleasant method to travel to and from work. Just keep in mind to wear your safety gear when you’re riding!
