Abstract: Another marvel occurs to Airwheel Technology, namely X8, an electric unicycle in one-wheeler world. Its good performance and safety guarantee capture riders’ hearts.
Travel up to 18km per hour without moving a muscle on the vehicle, while an on-board gyroscope helps riders stay balanced as riders cruise.
Performance and Portability
Reach a maximum speed of 18 kilometers per hour and X8 this electric unicycle can reach up to 23 kilometers of mileage on a single battery charge. A full battery charge needs 60 minutes on base model with a safe angle climb of up to 15 degrees. It is water-resistant with foldable body for easy travel. Lean forward and backwards in order to achieve itself balance with help form an on-board gyroscope.
The battery adopted by X8 features 1,800 times life expectancy and 2.9times duration of ordinary lithium batteries. Ride it without concern about battery burning or explosion. 16-inch wheel hub installed in the tire minimizes rolling angle and optimizes grip effect. This design guarantees operation safety as well as emits a dynamic look. Although its operation is similar to steer a bicycle, it does present risks of getting hurt. However, this scooter company has tried his best to take some protective measures.
When Airwheel X8 electric drift hoverboard tilts to over 45 degrees sideways or turns over, the control system will activate tilting protection. The motor will stall immediately to prevent riders from get injured. To prevent injuries caused by over speed, a 12km per hour speed limit is set in this electric hoverboard.
When the speed exceeds 12km/h, the foot rests will rise gradually. When speed is over 16km/h, the foot rests will form 10 degree to the level surface for stopping riders leaning further to accelerate. When low battery is less than 15%, all indicator lights will blink and the buzzer will beep. The system will force riders to decelerate until to stop.
