It's clean. It's green. It's an elegant machine! Cruise for fun and thrill your friends with the amazing style and handling of the SBU V3. It weighs only 12.2kg and for many people worldwide the SBU has become an integral part of their daily commute. The SBU’s portability makes it the perfect in-between commuter as it fits on the bus, the underground, the train, and underneath your desk at work.
Take a look at the SBU V3 in action
The SBU V3 is precision crafted by hand with 6061 alloy. Built to last and to stay pretty, the SBU is ultra-portable and is capable of 23 stone (148 kg) loads and beyond!
No handlebars, no steering wheel, no need for any of that! Control your SBU with natural leaning motions (similar to the Segway) and experience a new way to travel. Lean forward to go, lean back to slow down/stop.
Elegant Electronic Design.
Among the many technological achievements of the SBU is its superior motor-driving capabilities. The Focus Designs Pure Sine Wave controller is more advanced than anything you can find on the market. With regenerative braking, unmatched efficiency, eery silence, and torque-control at the granular level, this BLDC controller is the only one it it’s class.
The SBU takes about 20-30 minutes to learn and once you master it you’ll find that riding becomes as natural as walking and talking (only way cooler). Using some cool features like Turn AssistTM and Smart SenseTM the SBU V3 actively “learns” your motions and performs numerous safety calculations every second you ride.
The sensors are the key to the SBU’s superior movement and self-balancing capabilities. Multiple 3-axis accelerometers and gyros provide superior inertial measurement enabling for a ride like no other.
