Out Airwheeling

Oscar Out Airwheeling ORB WheeL X2
Meet Oscar, a well balanced (pun intended),guy from Västerhaninge. Spotted him earlier today when he was out gliding on his solowheel with two friends. Easy to learn the right technique, at least according to Oscar who offered me to try it, but I chickened out, because who would like to see me falling and hurting myself on a YouTube video? The solowheel is not very expensive at 2500SEK. Top speed around 18km/h and you can ride with your hands in your pockets,( Look mum, no hands!), and go over hurdles. And it is easy to bring with you, just fold out the pedals when you are ready to go. Not too heavy I guess, although it outweighs my bike. Had a few camera problems today but got a few good shots in the end.

What an interesting way to get around. Never heard of these and most likely never will try one out :)

I've never heard of these either!

So that's what those things are called!

This is new to me. Is there an easy way to turn, go in reverse, stop fast, fall down, break neck?

Looks like fun - but I'd probably hurt myself or break something?
