Top 10 Beginner EUCs to Consider￼
EUC (electric unicycles) are a great, cutting-edge way for you to make your daily commutes, evening strolls, and city adventures more interesting than ever before. EUCs are not only highly efficient for zipping around from one place to another, they’re also loads of fun to ride.
Hopping on one of these environmentally friendly little machines can seem intimidating at first due to the fact that they operate with but a single, solitary wheel, but with a little bit of practice, virtually anyone can get the hang of riding a EUC. Having that said, there are some brands and models that are more beginner-friendly than others.
