Niubo/nbpower kits from big river. I emailed numerous times with their rep. Good experience. Others can shrink in fear about battery mishaps. I respect the power within. Careful about charging and use. We will see how it does in the long haul. So much fun but

dangerously fast. Must respect.

Had a varla eagle one 2000w scooter, was disappointed, range was not that great, acceleration was ok, but wished i had more power, it had pretty serious design flaw, i fixed it, got rid of it, gave it to a friend, Now thinking of unicycle king song s22, but it is winter here now, so i'll probably get one in spring/summer, maybe they will come up with a new model by then.

For me to go 100 miles i had to recharge 4-5 times 8 hours each time, with no way to remove a battery to replace it with a charged one. That was another point i did not like about my scooter, with most ebikes batteries are swappable. Unicycles are not, but at least the ones i'm looking at can do 100 miles on a single charge

@alpg88 the EV unicycle looks like a blast during summer months. Are you familiar with riding unicycles? King song s22 has a max 40mph.. Definitely wear a helmet and a crotch guard wouldn't hurt either 🥴

Yea, i am, took 2 different ones for a spin during summer camping trip, several people at our site had them. the fastest maxed out around 20 on pavement, (after my scooter,they felt slow) they did not have suspension, so they were not as fast or fun off road.
I have all the protective gear, i used to ride 2000w scooter that did 37mph on good leveled payvment, once i got to 43 on a slight downhill. Not sure about crutch guard, maybe it is different for unicycles, but with scooters most injuries are upper torso and head. I took a few tumbles so i'm familiar with pain, lol
