pivot / unicycle with flywheel

pivot
pivot

The main aspect of the unicycle “pivot” is the horizontal mounted flywheel; the rotational energy is balancing the unicycle as well as the flywheel is storing energy for the hub drive. With poles and board the rider is controlling the unicycle by intuitive movements: dynamic, powerful, forward drive is accelerating the flywheel and therefore the unicycle. Balancing on the board is turning the unicycle, suddenly pulling the poles means to slow down and to brake. According to dynamic, strength, condition and skills many different drives and tricks are possible.
