Badzilla Posted August 13, 2017 Share Posted August 13, 2017 The hub motor is the heavy part? Followed by the battery? What is the lightest decent quality electric unicycle? It does not have to be fast. Strangely... My Airwheel Q3 260wh weighs about 26 pounds even though they say it weighs 30.2 pounds. My homemade electric bike ways 31.5 pounds which is only about 5 pounds heavier than the Airwheel Q3 (without seat and steering). When sitting down, a steering apparatus might be more important. Even if a steering bar is unnecessary, I want something in front as a slider to help with potential falls. My aluminum frame modified BMX bike uses a high-powered Dewalt cordless drill and is very reliable. I will need some weight savings to make the electric unicycle a practical alternative. But apparently current technology hub motors are heavy. I plan on adding a seat and lightweight steering apparatus that will increase the weight.
