Gotway Monster 100v Unboxing and Range Test
Is it the electric unicycle for me?
Keep in mind this Electric Unicycle is a big machine, if you have to carry it up multiple sets of stairs it might not be for you. You can get electric monowheels that start at 10inch motor size (Mten3) up to this 'Monster' 22inch motor size. If you are not sure still which one wheel segway is for you then it would be worth reading this check list from the electric unicycle forum electricpeople.org.
One thing for sure if you are commuting on an electric unicycle this Gotway Monster is king; it eats up the road / offroad with ease.
We did our 1000 miler (actually it was 1080 miles in the end) over 13 days and it was a pleasure to ride. Worth noting that the Gotway Monster Unicycle can be fitted with a seat (check the seat out here), which is ideal for long rides lasting more than 30 minutes at a time. If you are on the hunt for an electric unicycle with a seat then it might be another box it ticks!
Checkout the in depth review video we have done to help you understand the unit and work out if its right for you (FYI These videos are for the 84v version):
Keep in mind this video below was done a while ago, new video to follow, this will give you some idea though in the meantime! New additions are the pick up cut off switch, new body panels (stronger) and some other cosmetic changes to this already awesome wheel.
The Monster comes with a 2500w motor and it runs an 84v system. As per video charge time is significant! It took 21 hours to charge ours from approx 15% battery SOC.
Tire Pressure: Tire Sidewall states 32psi when cold, so set your pressure at that and reduce little by little if you want a different ride style. Remember - to low can cause inner tube pinch and a higher rate of wear on the inner tube as well as open you up to a higher possibility of a puncture.
UK Legality - Official government advice is to ride these on private land (with the landowners permission only), although we are not aware of any riders being prosecuted for riding an Electric Unicycle on pavements or road and it seems to be a grey area (being a single wheel) nor are we legal experts in this regard. Still concerned? Then seek independent legal advice. Of course you must ride responsibly as always - you are not a superhero - although you will feel like one!
