As electric vehicles appear more and more in urban landscapes, vehicles such as electric bicycles and electric scooters are often the centerpiece. However, there is a less popular but equally convenient method of traveling by electricity, which is the electric bicycle.
E-bikes: What are they?
Single-wheel electric self-balancing single-wheel personal mobility vehicle. They rely on gyroscope stabilization to keep the rider balanced. Also known as EUC or SBU (Self-Balancing Bicycle), a unicycle electric scooter is used for social and domestic transportation.
Unlike standard unicycles, which are powered by pedals, e-bikes rely on batteries to provide forward thrust, making riding quick and easy.

There are some variants of the left-field EUC, with seats or sometimes even a handlebar – but if the vehicle is single-wheel drive and uses an electric motor, they can still be classified as an electric unicycle.
With only a single wheel, a EUC can look like it’s very difficult to handle. Although it will take some practice, you can easily grasp the basics of driving the EUC – thanks to the integrated self-balancing technology.
How does EUC work?
Like e-scooters and e-bikes, EUCs run on batteries, eliminating the need for mobility. Instead, single-wheel trams have fixed footrests on either side of the wheels. Different models have different power and battery capacities, equivalent to different maximum speeds and ranges.
Like electric vehicles, the EUC’s battery needs to be changed regularly. Battery capacity and charging method will vary from model to model, but many can charge longer distances than relatively expensive electric motorcycles.
The self-balancing properties of an electric monocycle depend on gyroscope stabilization technology. It is the rider’s shift in weight that sets the motion: if you lean forward, the EUC accelerates; If you move your weight backward, it will slow down and stop – unlike riding on the highway. Directional movements are performed with a light head of weight on your left or right foot or by twisting your hips.

Every e-bike has a control panel that detects weight changes and maintains axle balance to keep the bike straight. Although these are considered ‘self-balancing’, the rider will have to make some effort to maintain lateral balance.
With its unique riding technique, you’ll need a bit of practice before you’re ready to take your EUC out for a public shoot. However, rest assured that this type of vehicle does not require the same level of expertise as the standard, manual unicycle!
What can an electric unicycle be used for?
EUCs are versatile and equipped to navigate different terrains, but their true potential becomes apparent in urban environments. Many models are best suited for paved or tarmac roads that allow smooth travel.
Many EUC cities are designed with this in mind, with a handle and often a trolley handle included in the design, allowing for easy portability. This is especially helpful if you must use public transport for part of your trip.
For the more adventurous, there are off-road single-wheel electric bikes. Before buying, be sure to understand the capabilities of your chosen model. If you buy a EUC equipped with off-road tires but try to use it off-road, you could be off to a rough start.
With an impressively powerful electric motor, most electric unicycles can cope with bends that can be a bit of an inconvenience to scooters if they are sufficiently charged.
Are single-wheel electric bicycles valid?
Where you operate the new EUC will ultimately depend on your country’s highway laws. In the UK, it is illegal to ride an e-bike on public highways, just like an electric scooter. This is because of the complicated law that classifies the EUC as a Personal Light Electric Vehicle (PLEV). The use of these vehicles on roads or sidewalks is prohibited and may result in fines for driving violations.
Electric unicycles can only be legally used on private property, such as your own site or private land – if you have permission from the landowner.
However, with the growing popularity of electric vehicles such as scooters and mopeds, the UK government is under increasing pressure from the public to re-evaluate the laws relating to the use of electric vehicles. use them.
