  1. boring lot in the uk aren't they! :-p
  2. anyone else in Vienna please?
  3. I certainly dont live near London, it's a 2 hour journey for us here in Norfolk, but we are a bit crazy on wheeling and getting the correct one for us :-) but same country I guess!
  4. 9th March 2016:- Me and my mate took a trip down to London from Norwich to go and see the Uniwheel and chat to the guys who designed it. I currently have an X8 but am now looking for a faster wheel. My mate rides a Solowheel Xtreme. My opinion:- After spending an hour with these guys and then testing their Uniwheels in the back road, I was pretty impressed. It rode well and was comfortable (I'm female). In my opinion, reading through some of the comments here on this excellent forum, you should have confidence in the motor power numbers etc and not judge these guys by the standards of other EU manufacturers who stretch the truth. Maybe do what we did, and go visit them before offering opinions on the Uniwheel and get an understanding of it, and them and their ethos. These guys are passionate about their product and really seem to know what they are doing, with the valuable experience of having come for the automobile industry. You should also know that they have decided to back away from the beta testing for many reasons. They said they will be supportive in case of product malfunctions on the first wheels off the production line on wards, and being a business woman myself, I found them sincere in their comments. They are clearly out to please their clients and are, in a sincere way, 'Geeks'. The design was not just skin deep but went into the components too with 'safety' being very high on their list in order to satisfy not only themselves but the regulative authorities in the UK. I really got the sense that these guys genuinely really care about all aspects. The Lipo batteries seemed easy to swap over and I would personally not have an issue with carrying the spare in my backpack (handbag ;-) ) For me, the design was better in reality than on picture and I was suitably impressed all around. Because I don’t know the technical jargon I can't quote much here but when these guys say it goes 22kph, I believe them! (despite being a blonde). This seems to be a real quality product compared to much cheaper units although I personally do feel it is still priced a little on the high end, but maybe this cost is an issue for me only because of the falling prices of the other EU's out there at this moment in time. Lets face it, in comparison, the Solowheel Xtreme is a pretty amazing quality wheel but again, the price is OTT. Quality and safety isn't cheap! Go and see Steve and his team and give the new Uniwheel a ride! :-)
  5. Does anyone have any up to date info on Wheels being allowed on flights? Im looking to fly from London to Vienna and would love to take my X8. Can you take it as hand luggage or does it have to go in the hold?
  6. I have been making inquiries about renting a wheel in Vienna/Wien, but cant find anyone who does. Shame! I have an X8 but not sure which airlines or if any airlines would allow me to take it over. Dont suppose there's anyone out there that would let me rent one of theirs for a day or two? :-(
  7. thinking of getting this wheel. Need for speed and off road. Using an X8 at the moment. Just worrying about the weight of it in comparison to my X8. Thanks for the video, gives me a good idea of what it is like. :-)
  8. I may visit with my wheel soon. I have family in District 3 :-)
  9. still no riders here, I'm 'Billy no mates' :-(
  10. ok thanks, but surely there must be a UK supplier out there that does this?
  11. thanks Guys...yes thought of taking charger but its hard to find places where we live to sit and re charge. Thanks Esaj that may be a good option :-)
  12. ha ha, yes Im now on my way out to celebrate! One for the New Year maybe. Thanks and HNY to all x
  13. Hi All, Apologies if this topic has been covered before, I searched but couldn't find anything. I have an Airwheel X8 (800) which I love. My friend Cecily has now bought a Solowheel (which is 1800). Problem is, now when we go out together she can go further km's than me (and faster but that's not the issue here). I cant afford a Solowheel or any other wheel just now so am looking to get an additional battery for my Airwheel. Can anyone recommend where I could get one? Obviously looked online but very worried about ordering from a site I don't know. Don't want the battery to catch fire or ruin my wheel. Im after a 'safe' good quality battery. Could anyone point me to a video of how to use a 'spare' battery with a wheel? I'm pretty naive and need to learn if this is possible/advisable/do-able... Thanks in anticipation....p.s. I'm a girl so don't get too technical on me ;-)
  14. I bloody love my Airwheel X8, and that is all....
