An electric unicycle is designed based on the principle of dynamic balance, the change of the unicycle's posture could be detected by the built-in gyroscope and acceleration sensor. Meanwhile with the servo control system, driver is able to make thing operations by leaning forward or backward, such as moving forward, acceleration, deceleration, braking and others.

For your riding safety, V11 and above unicycles require firmware upgrades. Otherwise, the vehicle will not function properly and be disabled. To upgrade the firmware, connect to the App while the phone is connected to the internet, receive the new firmware push prompt, and click upgrade while the device is disabled. After the upgrade is complete, the App will prompt you that the upgrade was successful.
Yes, but be aware that riding in colder temperatures can affect the performance of the unicycle. One key thing is to make sure the board is always being stored inside a temperature controlled environment, not left in uninsulated areas for extreme heat or cold. Keeping your unicycle in the cold can cause damage to your tire, motor, and battery. You may receive an error message if your battery level is too cold or runs out of power prematurely. In that case, you’ll need to bring it back inside.
Electric Unicycles are built like tanks. They have a direct-drive hub motor that has no moving parts so you can ride over any terrain without much fear of damaging your board. All Electric Unicycles are water resistant and can withstand some moisture. We recommend taking extra caution when riding in or near water and drying off your Electric Unicycles completely before charging to avoid damage.
We understand the desire to personalize your unicycle, and we are always amazed by the amazing things our riders create. This said, we do not recommend altering the unicycle’s internal components or structure. It is ultimately up to you how you’d like to use the unicycle, but it is important to note that many times modifications can result in damage to the unicycle and will void the unicycle's warranty policy and could lead to the unicycle being ineligible for any form of service or repair. Any rider who wishes to personalize and customize their ride needs to be aware of the possible consequences of modifying the unicycle.
