SBU-V3-Launch

 

Invented by Focus Designs (USA) the SBU V3, self-balancing unicycle, is honestly a new dimension to travel and riding it ensures a genuinely exceptional experience. Riding for joy or as a great means to get from one location to another- all can be enjoyed exclusively, thanks to this new-age unicycle. Weighing merely 12.2kg the SBU V3 has turned out for many people in the United States become a vital part and parcel of their daily travel. Easy portability makes it the perfect in-between commuter as it can be carried on the bus, the underground, the train, and placed beneath the desk at work.

 

Precision crafted by hand with 6061 alloy, built to last and look good, the ultra-portable SBU is capable of 23 stone (148 kg) loads.

 

The new-age utility unicycle carries no handlebars and no steering wheel thus ensuring freedom from those controlling gears. One can steer his SBU with natural leaning motions and experience a new significance of travel. The rider just needs to lean forward to go and lean back to slow down/stop.

 

The SBU takes about 20-30 minutes to learn and once the user master it riding turns out as easy and natural as walking and talking. Using features like Turn Assist, Push Back and Smart Sense the SBU V3 actively “learns” the rider’s motions and accomplishes a slew of safety calculations every second of the ride. The sensors are the key to the SBU’s superior movement capabilities. Multiple 3-axis accelerometers and gyros ensure superior inertial measurement ensuring a breath-taking yet comfortable ride.

 

Among the host of technological achievements of the SBU there is the motor control module. The Focus Designs Pure Sine Wave controller is far more advanced than contemporary tools available in the market. With regenerative braking, supreme efficiency, perfect silence, and torque control at a granular level, the brushless DC motor controller reigns supreme in its class.

Braking

The breaking is performed by an electronic motor brake. Furthermore we have incorporated regenerative braking so you recover a good part of energy when braking. WARNING: Do not attempt to travel down long steep inclines on a 100% fully charged battery. Failure to comply may result in damage to the battery or to the circuit due to the regenerative braking.
