Extras – A First Look at the New Inmotion V10F V10 Electric Unicycle
Since receiving the V10F about two weeks ago, I’ve put on 200km distance on the machine & have to confess I simply love it! One of the first things an experienced extras Rider will probably notice, is that between the 2.5″ wide tire & high pedal height of 17.2cm (6.7″), it has the feel, & many of the ride qualities, of a 18″ wheel. For additional control, hugging the sides of the Wheel with your calves feels very comfortable, probably the best ergonomics of any other Wheel.
Inmotion extras have really pulled out all the stops, listening to their Distributors & Customers in trying to make the V10 the best possible 16″ Wheel that would satisfy the demands for majority of their Customers. For years, Riders have been crying out for larger pedals, a brighter headlight, cut-off switch, travel handle, speakers (well maybe not everyone for speakers), all of these features have been crammed into a body that is only a couple cm taller than the previous generation V8. I’m inclined to believe that given the constraints of the volume that the V10 occupies, it’s difficult to see, at least without some major breakthrough in battery energy density technology, or commercial room-temperature superconductors, how an Electric Unicycle can be dramatically improved based on materials that are available to Engineers today.
