Based in NYC, Kaiden is a Software Engineer who loves talking about delicious food, Thai boxing, grappling arts, and fast electric vehicles. His main go-to weekend must-haves were mouthwatering pizza, cheesy burgers, snappy unicycles, and ice-cold libations. Although lately, he’s been consuming unsalted air fryer chicken, filtered tap water, and green smoothies, walking to work because he’s in his late 30s and his metabolism just isn’t the same. He is finally accepting it.
Gotway MCM5 Short Review
After 5 weeks and 300 fun filled miles, it’s safe to say that the GOTWAY MCM5 absolutely delivers!
Coming in at 37lbs, with an 800wh battery, 30ish mile range, and a cruising speed of 24ish mph, the MCM5 is the perfect PEV for hauling groceries, commuting to work, and generally crushing any commute that requires ten or fewer miles.
- The MCM5 is one of the best values EUC’s on the market
#1 THE GOTWAY MCM5 IS POWERFUL
What I love most about the Gotway MCM5 is the power-to-size-weight ratio. Compared to my Dualtron Eagle Pro and Dualtron Mini, the uni takes up less space, which is an enormous benefit when storing. When climbing hills or speeding to work, the 1500w motor delivers strong torque for my rides that usually range from 18–25 mph in the NYC bike lanes. This Uni has the perfect punch and power for any adult commuter. This electric unicycle eats the Queensboro bridge for breakfast from a gradient perspective!
#2 THE GOTWAY MCM5 IS PORTABLE
The second thing I love about this Uni is that it is also quite portable and practical; you can pop it in a shopping cart or stow it to the side if you’re dining outside. Compared to an electric scooter, the uni is also very easy to carry and keep if you’re on public transportation. Most people mistake the Gotway MCM5 for a suite case (an odd thin, round-looking one that lights up). People also usually wonder why I’m wearing a full-face motorcycle helmet while hauling this suite case around. But like any other polite New Yorker, they’ll mind their business and silently judge you.
#3 THE GOTWAY MCM5 GOES THE DISTANCE
Last but not least, for its size and power, the MCM5 has the perfect amount of range for my daily usage. The MCM5 has more power, torque, and capacity for any adult commuter who needs to run errands, get across town and get to work without any range anxiety. When adulting, I usually wouldn’t commute more than 8 miles daily. The Gotway MCM5 torque, size, and 800WH battery have more than enough power and juice to get me through the day without any noticeable degradation in performance.
I have not drained the battery passed 80% in a single day. For most average adults, this MCM5 has plenty of power and battery juice to last a few days. However, I usually charge back to 100% before usage. For anyone looking for an entry-level electric unicycle, I highly recommend the Gotway MCM5.
