Airwheel X8 is the newest version in the single wheel family. It has one 16 inch wheel, a 170 WH battery and is great fun to drive.
You learn it in a day. Most people manage to start riding it after about 30 minutes and you'll get more and more confident during the first few days. The X3 ships with training wheels that you can use the first couple of days, however it is recommended to let go of them as soon as possible to exercise your balance.
How it works
The Airwheel is a self balancing vehicle controlled by gyro sensors that will keep it upright and react to how you place your weight. You drive it by gently leaning forward. To brake and slow down you lean gently backward. It is very natural, it's easier to experience than to explain.
The X8 model has a absolute top speed of 10 mph, however the normal driving speed is 8 mph. When the speed goes above 8 it will lean slightly backwards to make you slow down, and a warning beep is heard. 8 mph is a very comfortable and safe speed.
The X8 can drive up hills of 15°. People of max 130lbs can climb 18°. (15° is quite steep!)
Airwheel X8 has a great performing 170 WH battery from Japan capable of 1800 recharge cycles.
The range of the X8 is up to 14 miles. This will vary based on your weight, speed, terrain, temperature and how you drive it. The most efficient way is to drive at a constant medium speed. Frequent stops and accelerations will use more battery.
We deliver the Airwheel's with an upgraded and smaller sized charger with no fan! ! It works worldwide on both 110V and 230V voltages and comes with a Canada/USA 2 prong cable.
The X8 is charged 80% full in 80 minutes and 100% full after 120 minutes.
Airwheel have several safety systems:
There are LED lights indicating battery level.
When battery gets below 15% the airwheel will start beeping and will lean backward to slow down and stop.
When it falls over 45° it will turn of the engine and beep. Simply turn it off and back on to reset.
It will alarm and blink the LEDs if any other technical fault.
