Those who love to slide around will not resist the latest addition in the board sports segment. Have you ever thought to have the same feeling of snowboarding but on pavement? Those who never skated before will also want to try.
The newest toy to enjoy outdoors just rolled into the stores.
Onewheel is a motorized skateboard consisting of a board and a single 11-inch air-filled tire.
When it comes to board sports this is as new and innovative as it gets. It is able to achieve up to 15 miles per hour and is all-terrain. It rolls softly on pavement but has an extraordinary performance on grass, sand and dirt.
It is able to climb slopes up to 35 degrees thanks to his revolutionary 2 horsepower brushless transverse flux motor that provides plenty of torque to climb over anything.
It allows to run up to seven miles on a charge that takes only 20 minutes. Safe LiFePo4 Lithium batteries last for years of everyday use with no decrease in range.
Founded by Kyle Doerksen, Future Motion manufacturer of this incredible vehicle, is located in Santa Cruz, California. Doerksen, inventor and chief engineer, spent eight years designing consumer and technical products at IDEO global design and innovation firm. He holds multiple engineering degrees from Stanford University.
The idea for Onewheel evolved as he needed to walk a mile to work and dreamed of a better way to get there. He grew up in the Canadian Rockies as an avid snowboarder and wanted to bring the feeling of snowboarding to pavement. Electric vehicles are his passion and Onewheel is an expression of the true freedom and excitement that electric vehicles can achieve.
Onewheel’s dynamic stabilization creates lean-to-go control and allows you to carve silky smooth heel and toe turns on and off road.
Onewheel costs $1499, Ultra charger included, at dealers all over the United States and selected stores in most European countries.
