NINEBOT ONE HERE IN THE UK
The Ninebot One S2 is the latest Electric Unicycle release from Ninebot. Step on this versatile vehicle and the fun won't stop. The S2 is a 14 inch wheel instead of a 16 inch wheel which the C+ and E+ are and combined with other advances makes it 4kg lighter in weight at approx 11.4 kg making it easier to carry for maximum portability. The S2 also includes a 2 year warranty.
The maximum speed of the S2 can reach 24 Km/h, when the battery charge is low a speed limit is activated to ensure your safety. The maximum range is 30 Km but this will vary depending on the user's weight, ambient temperature, road conditions and other factors.
The Ninebot One S2 now features the unique blank-canvas design which allows you to free your imagination by letting you customise your wheel with creativity - labels, graffiti, paint, it's your choice. Ninebot One S2 provides thousands of dazzling lighting effects, which can be set as required via the Ninebot app on your smartphone and also shows the battery status with different colours.
The electrical components of the Ninebot One S2 are hermetically sealed which provides IP54 rated protection against harsh environments such as rain and mud and will cope with 15˚ slopes, narrow roads, gravel surfaces, rugged surfaces and grass.
New to the Ninebot One S2 are dual battery compartments which means it is equipped with two batteries, one on the left side and one on the right. The S2 will still function on just one battery if it suits your speed and mileage requirements. On a single battery the maximum speed is 18 Km/h with a maximum mileage of 15 Km and brings the weight down to approx 10.5 kg.
The Smart Battery Management System (BMS) monitors the status of each battery cell to minimise faults guaranteeing the battery is safe and protected. The features work in conjunction with a power-off mode that includes an alarm function.
The output power of the Ninebot One S2's motor can reach 500W and using Ninebot's advanced sine wave inverter technology the max speed tops out at an impressive 24 Km/h. Imported high-rate batteries can take you to to 30 km. The body of the wheel is slim at only 18 cm thick.
Smart management of the S2 can be achieved by connecting the S2 to your phone via Bluetooth where you can view riding conditions, Instrument panel, vehicle parameters, diagnose faults and configure personalized settings and perform firmware updates. There is also a social network including riding partners and ranking plus a novice tutorial.

UK Legality - Official government advice is to ride these on private land (with the landowners permission only), although we are not aware of any riders being prosecuted for riding an Electric Unicycle on pavements or road and it seems to be a grey area (being a single wheel) nor are we legal experts in this regard. Still concerned? Then seek independent legal advice. Of course you must ride responsibly as always - you are not a superhero - although you will feel like one!
