You’ve started to see electric unicycles everywhere, and you’re ready to jump on board and purchase one of your own to get around. While electric unicycles are a fun and eco-friendly way to get from point A to point B, you have to follow certain safety precautions to make sure every ride is successful. Here’s what we recommend:
- Electric unicycles need electricity to balance! For that reason, never push your battery to the limit. If your battery is getting low, get off and get to a place where you can charge it again.
- Fully understand your unicycle and how it works before trying it out. This is where the user’s manual comes in handy – read it thoroughly before going out for your first ride to understand all of the controls.
- Stick with it! Getting used to riding a unicycle takes time. Spend a few hours here and there getting to know how the unicycle works, and once you get the hang of it, take longer trips to different destinations.
- As you learn to ride your unicycle, consider wearing shin guards to protect your legs. You may fall down once or twice, and having proper protection will prevent injury.
- Always remember that the best rider is the safest rider! If you plan on going over 5 mph on your electric unicycle, always wear your helmet.
