Onewheel is a dynamic new board-sport where riders can accelerate up to 12MPH only by leaning toward their front foot. Leaning back slows down, or even reverses, and regenerative braking recharges the battery during deceleration.
The real fun of riding Onewheel is carving on pavement. It’s like snowboarding on powder or surfing a wave, but no mountain or ocean is required, just a flat paved surface. Light heel or toe pressure carves turns and can even turn 360 degrees within the length of the board. Unlike a skateboard, you don’t feel every little crack and pebble in the street. Instead you roll over them on the 11-inch air filled racing go-kart tire, a miniature version of an F1 tire.
The hub motor, is the core of Onewheel, and features state-of-the-art axial flux brushless motor technology. This gives Onewheel the power it needs without a transmission—no gears or belts, just one moving part, the wheel itself. Powerful lithium iron phosphate batteries provide high peak power for acceleration and self-balancing, and recharge in under 30 minutes using the fast charger option.
