For those who prefer to quickly and comfortably move around the city, to travel long distances without their own car or public transport, Xiaomi offers an excellent solution – mono-wheel NineBot One A1. It is a self-balancing unicycle, in which the best achievements of engineering thought are embodied. In the review devoted to it you will find reliable information about the technical characteristics, design and capabilities of this type of electric transport.
The product is delivered to the buyer in a box made of cardboard. On the front surface is a schematic image of the model and its name. The back side contains additional information.
The device is an ideal snow-white circle, inside which is a black circle. It performs not only a decorative role, but also practical – it is here that the LED backlight is placed. It is now slightly improved and has become visible not only in front / behind, but also on the sides. And if you want to change the appearance of your purchase, you can buy spectacular stickers and stick them on the case yourself.
NineBot One A1 became the owner of a 14-inch tire. This decision is due to the fact that this model is positioned as an urban option. Accordingly, it does not require the ability to overcome various obstacles, but only the ability to move gently and smoothly along the asphalt, concrete and paving stones.
On it you can try and ride along the dirt road, provided that it will be fairly flat and tamped, with a minimum of stones and branches. The ground clearance is 11 cm, due to which an increased level of driving safety is achieved, and the overcoming angle is 30°.
Both footboards are securely fixed to the body, and their surface is covered with a special anti-slip material. Thanks to this, the rider will stand steadily on the running boards even if water gets on them.
Inside the device there is an electric motor that produces a rated power of 400 watts. Its operation is provided by the battery-accumulator NineBot A1 155 Wh/h, the capacity of which is enough to ride a distance of up to 15 km. If the rider does not independently set a maximum speed limit, then his vehicle can accelerate to 20 km/h, which for urban conditions is a very good result.
In order to get full access to the capabilities of a monocycle from Xiaomi, you need to download and install a proprietary application called Ninebot APP on your phone. The next step is to activate Bluetooth with a choice of device to connect.
The program is installed on gadgets running under the operating systems Android and iOS.
Xiaomi NineBot One A1 is an excellent option for those who want to become the owner of a functional and reliable vehicle at an affordable cost. Despite the fact that it belongs to the average price category, the quality of its performance, like all the products of Xiaomi, is at its height.
Its only drawback is the need for frequent recharging. A strong 14-inch wheel, high ground clearance and soft running, will allow you to feel real comfort while traveling in urban conditions. If you need to take it with you, then simply lift the device by the handle. Due to its compact dimensions, it will not occupy space at home, at work or in the car.
