Self-balancing methods of transportation have been floating around for around a decade now, but never before has it been so cool.
The newest KO1 by Kiwano is a self-balancing single wheeled electric scooter that will take you through urban landscapes with ease. It is powered by a 1000 W motor that can reach a speed of up to 20 mph. The 232.2 Wh battery by LG offers a 20 mile range, a perfect figure for people looking to commute in urban spaces. Thanks to the carbon fiber construction, it is quite lightweight, weighing just 16 kg. It also has shock suspension to take care of bumpy rides.
Kiwano has put quite the emphasis on research and development for the KO1, developing a high-end transportation method that's fun and affordable at the same time. The mono-wheeled electric scooter can balance itself and you can also control it with the iPhone/Android app on your phone. It can also ride beside you when you are walking.
Even though it weighs slightly more than the other mono-wheeled competitors, the KO1 by Kiwano offers many features that others don't have. A powerful motor, great batteries and a decent range figure make it a viable choice for entertaining urban commuting.
