The trend lately in electric skateboards has been to go smaller and lighter – the Sk8-Booster drive, the Stary board, the Bolt, and on and on. Slovenia's Revoll has different ideas.

Review: Gauswheel Spirit is an urban two-wheeler like no other

At first glance, it's certainly possible to think that the Hungarian-made Gauswheel Spirit is sort of a low-rider unicycle, or that it has a motor. In fact, though, it's an inline two-wheeler that's entirely human-powered.

We recently had a chance to try it out for ourselves.Read More
