The worlds first hub-less wheel off-road vehicle! Bridging the gap between a recreational toy and a high performance machine, the
Wheelman is on the cutting edge of technology for the future. It's like a motorcycle for your feet, and this hub less vehicle is a new breed of off-road transportation fun.
A center mounted engine and frame, supported at each end by a spokeless wheel into which feet can be inserted while standing upright. Wheelman has a 49cc 2 stroke engine which takes a mix of oil and gas just like a lawnmower or weed whacker. It holds around one liter of fuel and will give you a ride time of over an hour!
Riding the Wheelman is similar to other board sports like Surfing, Skateboarding & Snowboarding. If you’re into these sports, you’ll have no problem riding the Wheelman! Most riders learn in a day to ride in most conditions.
The learning curve of a G-Wheel Wheelman is very similar to skate/snow/surf boarding. So, if you have any experience in these you will be surprised on how fast and easy you pick it up.
At speed you use body movement to steer and at low speed (and you can ride a Wheelman at an extremely slow pace) you can angle the front wheel from side to side with your foot.
The Wheelman G-Wheel's speed is controlled by a cable type controller held in your hand, the more you squeeze, the more fun you have!
To stop, all you need to do is let off the throttle and squeeze the brake lever stopping the responsive disk brakes. The vehicle will slow quickly but smoothly, then/or you angle the toes of your rear foot toward the ground until the pads come into contact, the harder you push the faster you stop.
"If man could have been made in more than one piece, he would have definitely had wheels rather than feet."
Wheelman History and Benefits
The benefits of the wheel without axles have intrigued engineers for 100 years. Successful vehicle manufacturers have explored various design configurations and arrangements.
Now, in commercial production the wheel without an axle has a place in this fun new machine!
It provides a low center of gravity, efficient space management, strength and a distinct weight saving that has never been seen before.
Although the wheel is one of the fundamentals of this vehicle it is maneuvered similar to a surf, snow or skateboard. As such, it is a great cross training tool for all your Extreme Sports that the Wheelman can be utilized all year round in all types of weather.
The research and development of the Wheelman has taken place over the past 20 years from the principal concept by Grant Taylor to the refinement by production design engineer Muzza Grant. This ensured that man's greatest invention has been reinvented to what we see today with the Wheelman.
The G-Wheel is equipped with a hi-powered 2-cycle engine allowing the rider to achieve speeds of up to 30 mph and a range of 20 miles per tank. The Wheelman specific tire enhances efficiency of the drive system giving a smooth ride, and a hand held accelerator/brake makes this Wheelman very user friendly!
Tearing up the grass, sliding in the dirt, cruising the beach. It's a Wheelman life!
