The Soloist – Meet The Electric Wheel
This is one of those electric vehicles that falls into the “Other” pile, it’s hard to explain what the Soloist actually is. Sort of a unicycle version of the Segway that’s far more compact and an order of magnitude less obvious.
The Soloist is currently available for $1,500 USD from Inventist, the wheel has a 1,000W electric hub motor, regenerative braking and a lithium-ion battery pack that is good for a range of 12 miles. Charging takes about 45 mins from a normal outlet and the whole thing weighs in at 20lbs. If it was a little cheaper it’d probably be a lot more popular.
If you’ve got 1,500 clams to spare and want to look like you’re from the future, head over to Inventist and place an order.
