Onewheel Is a Self-balancing Electric Skateboard

 |  |  |  January 16, 2014

Is the Segway just not doing it for you? Maybe you want a Segway that is a bit more sporty and youthful. The Onewheel may be just what you are looking for.


The Onewheel is a self-balancing, single-wheeled electric skateboard that “gives you the feeling of flying” – or flying at very low speeds at least. This deck can go as fast as 12 MPH, thank its 48V lithium battery. So how much life will you get from that battery? You should be able to keep going for between four and six miles depending on the terrain you are riding over.

The Onewheel is a one-wheeled success, having already hit its Kickstarter target and selling out at the early bird $1,199(USD) price. Latecomers can still get in on the action for $1,299(USD) or more.

This thing definitely looks more fun than a Segway – plus it looks cooler too. Aging skater dudes will be all over this.
