What Are Alt-Wheels?
– Made for a single rider
– Smaller than bicycles
Electric skateboards, electric scooters, electric unicycles, the Onewheel, the Jyroball.
Alt-Wheels differs from “micromobility.” That’s all in this post.
Two hours from Hanoi, it was established and is run by Rick, who spent over 20 years with Samsung. We’ve being working closely with Rick and his team over the past two months and on our visit there last week. We are fully confident in their expertise and commitment to JYROBALL. A move, that while painful in causing a serious delay, will prove right in the end with higher production standards.
As promised, our first 500 backers will get their hands on MiniFalcon in December.
We’ve experienced just a little delay in shipping, but all 500 e-scooters in the batch will be delivered by the end of the month. The other 1,000 MiniFalcons will be shipped in January and the rest will follow soon in February.
In both campaigns, there are people screaming for refunds. Anyone opting to back a crowdfunding campaign should go in expecting delays and stick for the long haul.

Alt-Wheels veteran Pavel Garmas — who creates seriously-muscular DIY eSkateboards for himself — reviews a … shirt? Yes. A shirt:
The usefulness of that shirt will depend on what’s being ridden. Best for non-muscular eSkateboard and eScooter riders who care about fashion. For eUnicycle riders, I recommend getting safety gear from a mountain bike or motorcycle brick-and-mortar store (where it can be touched and tried on in person). That shirt poses an interesting question, however: How long before actual fashion brands enter the market? Tommy Hilfiger and FUBU seem like natural matches. Beware!

And I can’t resist a video that illustrates another reason to skip the subway with Alt-Wheels:
That’s the London Underground. And the air is filthy. The NYC subway system is even worse. Free yourself with Alt-Wheels!
