Motorbike with one wheel stands very real chance of replacing Segway

New technology can go faster than bicycles, takes up much less room

RYNO unicycle

While this thing might not look very sturdy, it’s actually remarkably safe (hence the reason why this
crazy mo-fo above isn’t wearing a helmet).

Dubbed, “RYNO”, the one-wheeled motorized unicycle is described by the company as “Half the bike.
Twice the fun.”

Clever boys. I see what you did there.

All marketing gimmicks aside, the one-wheeled bike brings a lot to the table. For one, it’s faster than your standard bicycle as it includes a five-horsepower electric motor that can (quietly) get up to 20mph with a range of (approximately) 20 miles on a single charge.

More importantly, though, it takes up much less room than a bicycle. Or motorcycle for that matter.

The whole idea for the RYNO comes from Chris Hoffmann’s (the inventor) 13-year-old daughter who saw a one-wheeled motorcycle in a video game and asked him if he could build something similar (got to love the expectations teenage daughters have of their parents). It took him five years to build the bike and now he and his development crew are looking to secure funds to launch production and sales.

Worth noting: there’s enough space on the handlebar to make this amazing bike even more awesome with one of our extra durable portable speakers, blasting out: “They see me rollin, They hatin, Patrolling, They tryin to catch me ridin uni!”

That sounded better in my head than it looks on the screen. Ah well—check out the RYNO story below:
