Use the board for a fun cruise around the block or as a short commuter option. The learning curve of a Wheelman is very similar to skate/snow/surf board riding.
The Wheelman has a 50cc 2-stroke engine which takes a mix of gas and oil just like a weed whacker. It holds one liter of fuel and will give you a run time of over one hour or 30 miles and speeds up to 20 MPH.
The speed is controlled by a cable type controller held in your hand. To slow down, simply let off of the throttle for a slow smooth deceleration. To stop quickly, simply pull the brake lever on the hand held control.
