What is a Onewheel?
The Onewheel is certainly unique in the electric mobility industry.
Falling somewhere between an electric skateboard, unicycle and scooter, the Onewheel offers the advantages of many different forms of transportation.
It features a single wide wheel mounted in the center of a riding platform. Riders mount it similar to a skateboard, but use their bodyweight to control acceleration on the self balancing board. The wide wheel makes it more stable and also allows the Onewheel to ride over much bumpier terrain than a conventional electric skateboard.
Onewheel riders can be found just as commonly cruising through bike lanes or scrambling over off-road mountain biking paths.
The OneWheel Pint is designed primarily for shorter trips in urban areas. It is 27 inches (69 cm) long, making it easier to carry around in tight spaces or on the bus than most electric scooters, e-longboards or even previous Onewheel models.
The Onewheel Pint also has a built in carry handle to grab and go.
The urban-optimized board has both a lower top speed and lower weight than the XR. The Onewheel Pint tops out at 16 mph (25.7 km/h). The lower top speed and the board’s proprietary “Simplestop” technology should make it easier for beginners to learn to ride.
The Onewheel Pint’s 750 W motor is housed in a 10.5 inch tire. The motor is powered by a battery sufficient for 6-8 miles (10-13 km) of range.
