CARDIFF, MANCHESTER and BRIGHTON, United Kingdom, March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- From March 21-22, Airwheel riders came to the streets of Cardiff, Manchester and Brighton promoting Airwheel's futuristic personal transporter on a two-day tour that caused a sensation in the UK.
In each city, a team of Airwheel self-balancing unicycle riders headed out onto the streets, successfully catching the eye of pedestrians thanks to a beautifully concise exterior design that actually shares some resemblance to a skateboard.
"It really reminds me of the hover board in Back to the Future", remarked one stunned local resident, touching on both the fact that Airwheel is such a futuristic device, and that the science and technology of transportation is headed in that direction.
Airwheel defines the concept of the commute of the future, with the UK tour serving to raise further awareness of this fun and eco-friendly adult's unicycle. The team also distributed booklets and questionnaires to pedestrians who were interested in Airwheel's brand, trying to introduce a new lifestyle to the public.
Based on the latest gyro technology, Airwheel is a self-balancing electric unicycle. It is portable, cheap to run, fun to ride, environmentally friendly and can easily be carried onto the bus or subway. It's also safe and easy to use; simply lean forwards to go forward, and back to slow down or go backwards. The power shuts off automatically if you jump off, and the pedals rise up to prevent leaning too far when the speed exceeds the safe range.
As soon as you step onto an Airwheel unicycle, it feels like you are gliding and the trend is gaining popularity across the globe. But it's not just for fun. City commuters are now using them to cover the last few miles from the Tube station to home. Compared with a Segway for example, the Airwheel electric unicycle is so lightweight, you can zoom to your station, store it in the overhead compartment, get to your destination, take it down and zoom to work.
The company has now also launched a twin-wheeled version, which is even easier to learn to ride. Go on and see for yourself.
