How does an EUC work?

An EUC works by utilizing an electric motor housed in the wheel, which is driven by batteries. The controller connects to the motor, allowing the user to regulate the speed and direction of the unicycle.

The motherboard also contains a gyroscope, which helps to balance the wheel whilst you are travelling.

It is fairly easy to operate an EUC, as they typically only have two controls: one for acceleration and one for braking. In order to accelerate, you lean forward…and to brake, simple lean backwards.
