InMotion offers several funtastic electric personal transportation devices with 1, 2 and 3 wheels; specifically - unicycles, bikes, rollerskates, skateboards, and scooters. All products are cost-efficient, battery powered, portable, quiet, and environmentally friendly (“green”) options for recreational exploring, errands, and commuting.
Electric unicycles (often abbreviated as an EUC) by definition have just 1 wheel. They are very nimble and have an exceptionally high fun factor! There’s a small learning curve but learning is well worth the reward of rolling and carving on a single wheel (see an earlier blog “You Can Ride an Electric Unicycle” that explains that learning really is easy and fast). InMotion offers several models - The V5/Glide 2 with an “F” version, the V8/Glide 3, and the V10 and the V10F that are a fun and efficient way to get around (“F” versions of the products go farther). Depending on the model, an electric unicycles will go as far as 60 miles on a single charge and as fast as 25mph. The wheels are exceptionally good at climbing hills, which makes them fun for on-road and off-road recreational exploration. Because they are very nimble and can roll forward and backward, they are also popular for tricks and stunts. They are also useful for errands, and especially for first-mile and/or last-mile commutes because their small size and integrated trolley handles make it easy to take them on buses and commuter trains.
In addition to the lineup of electric unicycles, InMotion also offers several other electric-powered personal transportation devices with 1, 2 and 3 wheels that are easy to ride and lots of fun! If you know how to ride a bicycle, you will enjoy effortless riding on the P1F mini e-bicycle (aka e-bike) as far as 25 miles on a single charge. And with the newest generation just released, InMotion P2 Mini E-bike, you can go even further with pedal assistance. If you know how to ride a skateboard, you will hop right on the K1 e-skateboard and have a blast, especially with its hands-free intuitive operation. If you’ve ever ridden a scooter, the L8F 2-wheel scooter and Scooterboard 3-wheel scooter are fun ways to scoot around. The L8F will scoot you over 20 miles on a single charge. Even if you’ve never ridden a scooter you’ll be able to hop-on and ride one of these electric scooters right away, especially the super-stable 3-wheel Scooterboard. All of these devices are lightweight and their handlebars collapse, so they are ideal for first-mile and/or last-mile commutes on buses and commuter trains.
Are you a skater? Whether you skate on ice, use traditional roller skates and/or inline skates you will love zipping around on the Hovershoes X1 e-rollerskates. Because Hovershoes, like electric unicycles, are self-balancing, even if you’re not a skater you’ll be rolling around on them quickly. Each Hovershoe has just 1 wheel, though you will likely use two Hovershoes simultaneously – one for each foot, which is why they are sold in pairs. Just like skates, you can move each foot independently, forward and backward, so you can easily perform turns, spins, tricks, and stunts that are limited only by your imagination. They weigh just 6 lbs each, so if you use them for errands and commuting you can just turn them off and stuff them in your backpack.
Whether rolling, biking, skating, or scooting are your thing, InMotion has a fun electric-powered scooter for you. What are you waiting for? Choose whether you want 1, 2 or 3 wheels under your feet and get rolling! Please share your experiences in a comment and/or review.
