Uniscoot Hovercycles

Uniscoot hovercycle sales are now live! Follow @oftn on Twitter for updates on availability. The webstore will be launching soon.

If you’re interested in purchasing a Uniscoot hovercycle, please send me an email including your name, shipping address, and phone number.

Riding the Uniscoot is very easy. The wide tire provides high stability at speeds ranging from fully stopped to 12 mph. Weighing in at 48.5 lbs, the Uniscoot makes for the ideal last-mile vehicle. It can easily be
carried on an escalator or split in two to fit in a car trunk.

With a 30-mile range (on flat ground), San Francisco residents can easily commute downtown for work and accomplish their daily routine with charge to spare.

Hovercycle is my official misnomer for this class of single-wheel personal transporters.

Safety

In order to purchase the Uniscoot you will be required to sign a waiver releasing OFTN Inc. and myself from personal injury liability.

You must wear a helmet, kneepads, and padded gloves whenever riding the Uniscoot. Riding motorized vehicles is an inherently dangerous activity and you are responsible for keeping yourself safe from injury with appropriate protective wear and responsible riding. You must follow all applicable local laws.

Warranty

The Uniscoot must only be ridden on reasonably smooth flat surfaces. Warranty void if mis-used.

The motor, internal frame, display panel, battery and charger are all covered by a 6-month warranty.
