Malta Electric Unicycle Meetup

Recommended Posts

Anyone rides the Electric Unicycle in Malta. I ride one often but still I haven't seen anyone around. Would be great if we can meet up and plan some route. If anyone is interested (even without an EUC) please post below, I have a few ones here :)

I'll be there is September and I'll definitely get in touch with you.

There is a great airshow every September:http://www.maltairshow.com/News/ You can't beat sunbathing while an F16 goes by on full afterburner.

Malta seems a great place for Electric Unicycles, it must be one of the few countries in the world it's possible to ride a decent wheel from one end of it to the other without recharging it. Although anything less than 16" might be challenging on some roads. With no oil of its own, and plenty of sun for solar power, there has to be a lot to be said for energy efficient electric transport.

Do EUC's have any legal status in Malta? I assume they are at least tolerated as a there are a number of Segway tours including in the capital city Valletta. We, chose, last year, to go on a mostly off-road tour including along the top of the 250M high Dingli Cliffs. Quite an experience, but, I would think, even better on an EUC.

Sure is :) although elevation and uphills kill a bit the batteries. I manage a good 20km at 18-22km/hr ride on a 260wh with around 92kg. My cheap (retired) 14" Chinese branded one makes around 8-10km at 16km/h

So far I'm meeting police around and they stop me for curiosity more than for legal issues :). I am trying to get in touch with authorities and maybe get the people interested in it contributing making their use disciplined, safe and completely legal (with other plans in mind). After all it's realistically speaking safer than the hover boards and the 2 wheeled segway on our roads, only the learning curve is different.

looking forward to see you around ;)

Hi IPS Malta. If you only one unibiker in Malta I have seen your riding last summer somewhere in Sliema, near Tigne Point I think. I remember your look of a free-moving person. It was a little from top to down, because I was traveling in the opposite direction on a simple scooter. When I had returned my home in Moscow I bought Gotway MSuper v3+. Riding it made me very happy. Thank you for your example bro:)

Now I'm again in Malta, I visit the country pretty often, but I can't take wheel on a plane from Moscow. I'm going to go Malta by my motorcycle with unicycle on the second seat this summer. May be we will ride together :)

Hey, I was busy traveling too recently. It's nice you saw me around. I am using it much. You're welcome to do some ride some day. If you ever need a Unicycle in Malta let me know. I have the IPS Zero and IPS LHOTZ. Soon will be looking at the newly released IPS I5. Tried it and it's cool for the everyday commute. Light and Slim that will be perfect for every rider.

I'm also from Malta but I ride the regular (non-electric) unicycle, but would love to see an electric one in person! :)

Hi @MathuSum Mut I used to ride it often there, for work, pleasure and errands. I am on a long stay in China now but probably will return in March/April. If you're interested we can meet and help you ride your first one around. It's very convenient and I have my EUCs waiting for me.

Hey Guys, 

 

Still Alice? I'm pretty often in Malta, moving there next week's, just got my flat😁

 

I'm riding an KS which is actually broken😂 but will be fixed soon... And maybe a new wheel 18 or something soon.

 

How many riders did you find yet? Looking forward meeting you @IPS Malta
