The Inventist Solowheel CLASSIC is a unique unicycle device that utilizes gyro sensors, a 1500 watt motor and a rechargeable battery that gets you on your way.
To understand the physics behind the Solowheel, think about the last time you went ice skating. Your feet were unconstrained and relatively free to move over the slick surface of the ice. When you skate in a straight line on one foot, you can see your foot steer right and left to balance your body. It was precisely this observation that has been transformed into a concept that has been transferred to the Solowheel to balance and steer with ease.
How? It's simple really: With your feet low to the ground and your legs resting against the pads, your lower body acts as one unit, like skating on one skate. The human foot has a small mass that is easier to rotate and manipulate independently of the body than the larger mass of the hip. Using your feet to steer and balance is much easier than using your hips which is what traditional unicycles draw on.
Why BUY The Solowheel:
Portable: At 24 lbs the Solowheel is designed to be lightweight and convenient. You can easily carry it and bring it into offices, classrooms, restaurants, buses and subway trains. The built-in carrying handle makes it easy to quickly pick up the Solowheel when you get to a flight of stairs. With the foot pedals folded up, it takes up no more space than a briefcase when you stow it in your car, home, or airplane luggage compartment.
Hands-Free: The Solowheel provides a convenient hands-free experience. Because you operate the Solowheel entirely by shifting your body weight and adjusting the angle of your feet and lower legs, you have both hands free to carry anything you need. Carry a cup of joe, pull a rolling suitcase, even open doors. Or just put your hands in your pockets to keep them warm.
Good For The Environment: Use the Solowheel to replace a car for short distances. This reduces gas costs, pollution, and traffic. Riders with short commutes can travel to work or school on the Solowheel, charge the unit in the office or classroom, and then ride back home.
We Are Authorized Dealers For Solowheel
Upzy works closely and maintains a close relationship with Inventist, the company behind the Solowheel. We understand that Inventist expects us to maintain the highest levels of customer service and satisfaction. In addition, we are able to sell for cheaper than many other retail outlets that sell the Solowheel because we do not have to maintain a brick and mortar store. We lower our prices and pass on the savings directly to you, the consumer!
Simply put one foot on the platform and push off. Your other foot goes on the other platform. Lean forward to go forward and lean back to slow down and stop. Twist your feet left and right to balance and steer. The motion is similar to steering the front wheel of a bicycle.
Users can ride for approximately 10 miles, at 10 miles per hour, and the lithium-iron phosphate battery can be fully recharged in only one and a half hours. Solowheel batteries recapture energy when going downhill or slowing down in the same way the hybrid car batteries do.

Be Careful Of Knockoffs:
Here at Upzy, we are Authorized Dealers for Inventist and sell only the Original Solowheel.
Some knockoff Solowheels have appeared for sale online in the last few months. Make sure you do not get tricked into buying a product that is not the original Solowheel. Knockoffs may look the same, but they are illegal and made to lower standards and using lower quality material. We are in the process of taking legal action to stop the manufacturing of knockoffs. (So far Inventist has been very successful with shutting down copiers of their other products in the past.) In the meantime, here’s some information to help you protect yourself from deception:
Safety: Knockoff manufacturers don’t use the right battery. They do this to cut their price, but it makes their units less safe to ride. Cheaper batteries will often fail to provide enough current during acceleration. If you ride a counterfeit model, you’re more likely to fall.
Liability insurance: Counterfeiters do not carry liability insurance.
Battery: The lithium polymer battery used in the knockoffs are a cheap alternative and extremely dangerous as they have started home fires.
Low price: Copiers achieve this by cutting corners. Knockoff units may also look different in some of these ways:
- Shoddy craftsmanship, such as right and left foot platforms secured at different heights.
- Slightly different shape of casing, especially in the handle.
- Variant (or completely different) name and/or logo.
53, RA, bowlegged, added some pads to make it wider, need some foot pad extensions for my sore feet, otherwise pretty awesome!
I received my Solowheel about 2 weeks ago and have been riding it continuously since then. It's ideal for going back and forth between where my boat is docked and my car, or for zipping around in any walking community. It's a practical transportation vehicle that you can use for practical purposes. Unlike a bulky bike, you can easily stow it with you anywhere. At 24 pounds, it barely weighs anything and that was a huge selling point for me. Yes, you have to learn how to ride it before you achieve mastery, but it took me only about a week to get comfortable. All in all, a worthy investment!
