Airwheel (www.airwheel.net) are currently one of the largest Electric Unicycle manufacturers with possibly the biggest market share. They have the widest range, a very wide regional coverage and seemingly have built a sizeable company. They introduced their first Electric Unicycle already in July 2013 and less than a year later had more than 200 franchise stores in China.

But like in many other industries, often the biggest and earliest manufacturer is not the biggest innovator. And Airwheel are definitely playing it safe: The Electric Unicycles are all limited to 18 km/h and there are no real “WOW! features” coming with their products. No mobile phone app, no lights, no improved (less-slippery) pedals, no USB charging ports. They have a solid set of Electric Unicycles, but instead of improving them, their most recent product launch was instead for two 2-wheel transporters.

(For some strange reason, Airwheel has a fascination with the odd term “Mars Rover”. It appears in the description of some of their products, but not for all.)
