First, the product principle and price comparison:
The electric Skateboard is based on the design idea of a traditional scooter. It is upgraded on the basis of a human Skateboard. Components such as batteries, motors, lights, dashboards, and computer chips are added to the Skateboard, as well as wheels, brakes, and wheels. The upgrade of the rack and other systems led to the development of products such as electric Skateboard, which are more often found in everyday life and are especially popular among office workers. At present, the price of electric Skateboard ranges from 1,000 yuan to 10,000 yuan. They are very popular among young people in developed countries in Europe and the United States and in major cities in China.
Balance wheel, there are two types of unicycle and two-wheeled. Balance wheel is a brand-new vehicle that has appeared in recent years. It uses battery plus motor drive, computer chip plus sensor to assist in manipulation, and can use the gyroscope of the car and Acceleration reading sensors monitor the changes of body posture in real time and make adjustments to achieve “dynamic” stability. It is a new type of green environmental protection product used by modern people as a means of transport and recreation. In addition to daily travel, some The exhibition will also often play its role of transportation. The current price will generally range from a few hundred dollars to several thousand dollars.
Second, performance comparison:
The electric Skateboard consist of frame, wheels, battery, brake system, lighting system, instrument panel, etc. The net weight of the portable electric Skateboard is about 15 kilograms, the length after folding is generally not more than 1, 2 meters, and the height is not. More than 50 cm, you can carry it or put it in the trunk of a car.
The balance wheel consists of wheels, pedals, motors, batteries, brakes, and other electronic chips. It weighs about 12 kilograms. It can be carried individually or placed in the car trunk.
Overall, the balance wheel is more compact in appearance and lighter in weight. Although the balance wheel needs to be manually transported in the event of a power outage, the balance wheel with a tie bar design is also a relatively good solution to this problem.
The wheel size of the balance wheel can reach 15 inches, can adapt to many types of road conditions, and has unique advantages in passability.
Electric Skateboard generally have a tire size of no more than 10 inches, and are relatively easy to face in general urban roads. However, in poor road conditions, passing conditions are not ideal, and care must be taken when driving.
Electric Skateboard and balance wheel are non-motor vehicles that do not have additional safety devices. In theory, they only allow low-speed driving on non-motorized vehicles. They are used normally at the design hourly speed. Electric Skateboard and balance wheel will have a low center of gravity and light weight. The advantage of this is to create a safer and more convenient travel experience for users.
Third, the function comparison:
1, bearing capacity
The difference between the balance wheel and the electric Skateboard is not great, but because the pedals of the electric Skateboard are wider, they can carry two people in need. Therefore, the electric Skateboard are relatively more advantageous in terms of bearing capacity.
2, endurance ability
Balance wheel are generally better than the equivalent battery capacity electric Skateboard in endurance. The longer the electric Skateboard or balance wheel will increase the weight, the two are more consistent in this regard.
3, driving difficulty
The electric Skateboard is similar to an electric bicycle, and is also superior to an electric bicycle in terms of stability, and is relatively easy to operate. The balance wheel itself does not have a control device, and it merely relies on the computer's self-balancing function and the car's induction of the driver's driving intent. Although the driving style of a balance wheel is relatively new, it is easier to learn. However, it takes a period of practice before a very precise control is required.
The electric Skateboard have two wheels, and the acceleration and braking devices of the electric Skateboard can be manually controlled, and the operation is more direct, so the driving speed will be higher, but for safety reasons, the speed of the electric Skateboard is generally more than 20km/h. Suitable.
Although a balance wheel can theoretically achieve a wider driving speed, due to safety considerations, manufacturers usually control the speed within a range of 12km/h, and the speed is only half that of a Skateboard.
Which is good for balance wheel and Skateboard?
Electric Skateboard and balance wheel are two different types of portable transport tools, and they are similar in function positioning. This is the main reason why we compare these two types of products. Secondly, in practical use, the gap between portability and endurance of the two types of products is not obvious. In terms of passability, balance wheel are more dominant than electric Skateboard, and electric Skateboard are superior in capacity and speed. Balance wheel. Consumers choose according to their actual use. If it is used as an urban travel tool, there is not much difference between the two. Either an electric Skateboard or a balance wheel can be used as a choice if it is to be used as a multi-purpose transportation tool. Natural balance wheel are more stylish and more functional.
