Frequenly Asked Questions
Why is Solowheel the best self-stabilizing wheel?
Solowheel Glide Series is designed and manufactured by InMotion. They are superior wheels because of it’s high-quality components, top notch proprietary algorithm, and advanced safety features. And of course, the sleek design and sweet LEDs make it the best looking wheel available.

Learning Curve
If you’re not a member of the freakishly well-balanced part of the population, there is going to be a bit of a learning curve when you first start riding your wheel. While some people will start zooming around in minutes, do not give up if it takes you longer. It is not out of the ordinary to take upwards of 2-3 hours before starting to feel confident on the machine.

If you’re struggling, be sure to check out our series of “How-To” videos. The process is a little different for everybody, but you should find something in one of the videos that will help. If you start to get frustrated with the process, remember that it’s just like learning any new skill and that everyone learns at a different pace.

Are Solowheels safe?
Like literally everything in life, riding your Solowheel does carry a small element of risk. If you take the proper precautions (don’t ride in bad conditions and wear some safety equipment), you should be fine. And of course, follow the riding laws for your region.
You'll find that riding your Solowheel is about as safe as riding a bike - perhaps even safer - because an experienced rider can maneuver more precisely, react faster, stop on a dime, and is already in an upright position just a few inches off the ground. In many cases, if you fall you have a good chance to run to a stop instead of hitting the ground.

Where can I legally ride?
This is a tough one. Generally, you’re probably good to ride anywhere you can ride a bike. That being said, the relevant laws vary from location to location, so we recommend a quick google search or phone call to check up on your local regulations.

Retail Locations
If you look around, you could probably find some of our legacy units in a few retail locations. If you want to grab your own G2 or G3, then look no further than our very own e-commerce store.

Are Solowheel and InMotion related?
Yep, but they are third cousins more than siblings. Solowheel has a number of production partners, and Inmotion’s commitment to top-tier manufacturing earned them a spot as our primary production partner for the Glide series.

Carving
Not to get all cliche on you, but practice makes perfect. Carving is the first of the more advanced maneuvers you will conquer on your Solowheel journey. If you put enough time in, you can start slaloming like a pro rider in just a couple days.

Max Rider Weight
Use of the Glide Solowheels is limited to those of us who tip the scales at 260 lbs or below.

Tire Pressure
Tire pressure has a huge effect on steering and ride quality. Start with tire pressure at 35 PSI and then adjust between 30 - 45 PSI Depending on your weight. Somewhere in that range you’ll find the pressure that feels best to you. If you inflate too high, you might find that your Solowheel's turning response is too sensitive, lower than 37 and it may feel slow and unresponsive.

Footwear
For your toes’ sake, please wear shoes that actually cover your whole foot. Flip-flops might give you the cool, relaxed look you are going for, but you’re not going to care about looking relaxed when you stub your toe because you ignored our warning about wearing appropriate footwear.

Hills
I hope you have a protractor with you for this one. The Glide 2 can climb hills up to a 32% grade, the Glide 3 will cruise hills up to 46%.

Charge Time
The charge time for the G3 is equal to back-to-back viewings of My Cousin Vinny and the G2 charge time is enough for you to comfortably watch The Godfather: Part II. If you don’t measure time based on movies, the G3 takes 4.5 hours to charge and the G2 takes 3.5.

Minimum Age
With great Solowheel responsibility, comes great age restrictions. Riders need to be at least 12 years old.

Range
How far you can get on your Solowheel depends on how hard you ride it. Ride it fast up steep hills and it’s going to die faster than if you are riding at a controlled speed on flat ground. Generally speaking, you can expect to get 22-25 miles from a G2 and 28-31 miles from a G3 on a single charge.

Weight
The Glide 3 tips the scale at just over 29 lbs with the Glide 2 coming in slightly lower at just over 23 lbs. In a pinch, you can use your Solowheel to do one-arm rows.

Top Speed
With a top speed of 18.6 MPH, the Glide 3 would easily win a race against all the other Solowheel models. That being said, the Glide 2 clocks a fairly respectable 15 MPH. If you’d like to govern your top speed, which probably isn’t a bad idea while you’re learning, you can set a speed limit using the Solowheel app.

Safety Features
While the Glide 2 & 3 have a number of built-in security features, you should still always ride responsibly to limit risk. Glide safety features include vocal speed and caution warnings, pedals that tilt back slightly when you're pushing the limits of the machine, or when your battery is very low. Never ignore verbal or pedal tilt back warnings!

Can I ride in the rain?
Sure, but be smart about it. A quick trip in light rain won’t be a big deal, but don’t go out in a deluge or ride across town while it’s sprinkling. Technically speaking: the Solowheels have an IP rating of 55.

How far forward should I lean?
When you are first learning to Solowheel, you’re going to want to lean further forward than feels comfortable. It’s going to feel unnatural at first, and a bit like you’re going to fall, but the more you lean the faster the Solowheel will go and the easier it will get.

Once you’re a pro, you will be able to control the Solowheel by subtly leaning forward, backward, and side to side. The key is to be patient and get over the fear of falling. Before you know it, you’ll be zooming around town and you won’t want to stop riding.

If you’re having trouble finding the sweet spot on your forward lean, don’t forget to reference our how-to videos for tips and tricks.

My tire is making a strange noise. What should I do?
Check the tire pressure - too much air in the tire can cause it to rub against the Glide’s inner wheel well. There’s also the chance debris is stuck in the wheel well. If you’ve been riding over leafs, through mud, or other rough terrain, it’s possible that some debris is stuck on the interior of your wheel. If this is the case, the problem should solve itself as the debris typically gets knocked off as you continue to ride.
