WheelSurf Monocycle: Drive Inside the Wheel

by Lambert Varias

Monocycles are quite popular in science fiction, cartoons and video games – General Grievous drove one, and the world of Gantz also had huge and menacing ones – but I never thought there were actually ones for sale until I read about the WheelSurf. As with its fictional counterparts, you ride inside the WheelSurf and turn by leaning and shifting your weight. Braking can be done either by leaning back or using the hand brake.

The WheelSurf is powered by a 31-cc Honda GX31 4-stroke engine and has a top speed of about 25mph. The engine is connected to three small wheels, which in turn make contact with the outer frame where the huge solid rubber wheel is installed.

Looks fun to ride doesn’t it? It’s quite an expensive toy though, selling for almost $7,000 (USD), plus $800 to $1500 more for shipping. You can order one now at its official website.
