RYNO Microcycle

rynomicrocycle1One-wheel transportation always elicits a primal response. The is not the first offering of small, sleek one-wheel vehicles supposed to make motorized personal transportation enjoyable and practical…if you are not apprehensive at the idea of riding a self-balancing machine. The RYNO keeps you from falling by helping you balance forward and backward, but you are responsible for balancing it side-to-side. You can make a 360-degree on a vertical axis. The RYNO is designed to resemble a conventional motorcycle in its controls, the riding position making those who already ride a motorcycle feel right at home.

It’s true that one-wheelers offer you a kind of new freedom. As the company says: “ isn’t about owning the road. It’s about sharing the pathways and byways that move a little bit slower. But get you there in about the same time and a lot less stressed. It’s about reducing your impact, your footprint, and most importantly, your own frustration.”

Electric motor powered by 2 SLA batteries is contained in the wheel and will let you ride at speeds up to 10 mph for 10 miles on a full charge. The Ryno retails for $5,295 (including batteries, charger, LED headlights and display stand) and 1 penny per mile with a one-year limited warranty. Made in the USA. Watch the promo video.

    Sorry, I couldn’t finish the video. Techno music sucks.

    BobS. Futuristic machine = Techno music.

    Since the Segway and others we know that the tech is there. What I want to see is real world app. Slam on the breaks for an emergency stop, what does it do then?

    This looks like something I would like to try, but probably never buy. Perhaps in a very urban setting it makes sense, but I think I’ll stick to the blacktop and 2 wheels.
    Didn’t Cyril do a piece on a kid making one of these a couple years back? Is this his company or related in some way?

    I’d want mine all black so it would match my new Batman helmet.

    We can’t talk about metric bikes/products on here

    Jusmecuz, that is too funny !!!!!

    There’s no doubt….I’d be on my ass in under 2 seconds.

    Saw these in early development in Portland a few years back. They have improved the style factor for sure. This new model looks really cool. Great style and agility for the urban dweller. What would be funny is if the big wheeled bagger set got a hold of one! Thanks for sharing Cyril.

    10 mph? Need more speed!

    What is the learning curve like on this?

  11. 11 bigitch Jan 26th, 2014 at 5:52 pm

    this is one of the greatest inventions ever!!!!!!
    when you drive it there will be little or no traffic on the road, no pedestrians on the sidewalks!!!!!

    Looks like an Obama bike, half there.

  13. 13 knucklhead on a panhead Jan 27th, 2014 at 10:37 am

    I am going to get one today and am going to put radical 30 inch ape hangers, saddle bags with the leather fringe around the bottom and foot boards with fringe and a pastel light pink metal flake with the huge right and left mirrors! OH! I can’t forget the HUGE dresser seat with fringe, then a nitrous set up and maybe a turbo to ramp it up form 10 mph to a mind shattering 20 mph! Hmmmm….Maybe a dvd & cd player with surround sound speakers and a 21 inch monitor and direct tv saletite dish to keep up with all the current fashions and news and…….wait….what?….ummmm….never mind

    It would be interesting to see someone do a burn out on one!

  15. 15 Will Jan 27th, 2014 at 10:45 am

    Interesting piece of technology and I’m sure this will sell. However, that price is unbelievable. A bicycle is way more affordable.

  16. 16 cafesportytc Jan 27th, 2014 at 11:51 am

    I agree with Will, I think if I lived that close to my workplace I would ride my bicycle. 10 miles ain’t much for pedalin’ anyways.

  17. 17 Roadrash Jan 27th, 2014 at 2:55 pm

    Yeah i would rather have the specialized turbo bicycle for the same price, faster, longer distance and not as goofy looking.

  18. 18 Kroeter Jan 27th, 2014 at 4:13 pm

    +1 to Jusmecuz

    “…that one-wheelers offer you a kind of new freedom….”

    I’m think-n “freedom to face-plant”……….. 🙁


  20. 20 martin twofeather Jan 28th, 2014 at 3:01 am

    3 words,Makes me laugh!

  21. 21 BCinSoCal Jan 29th, 2014 at 1:31 am

    Agreed, looks like a face-plant waiting to happen. Would almost pay to see a burnout done on one, have no doubt the drifting guys could do it if it had the HP!

  22. 22 mdsphoto Feb 1st, 2014 at 11:22 am

    So it’s basically a one wheeled Segway, that only goes 10 miles on a full charge. While I applaud the innovation, for those of us living in a rural setting this has ZERO applications.
