OneWheel FAQHow does Onewheel work?
As we mentioned above, the best way to describe it is to imagine a remoteless electric skateboard that you simply lean forward to go and lean back to stop. All Onewheels will dismount by slowing to a stop and removing your foot from one side of the rider detect area (front footpad). This takes a bit a practice but is super simple once you get the hang of it.
How hard is it to ride a Onewheel?
This is a question we get quite often about Onewheel and the answer is nope, anyone can ride a Onewheel with a bit of practice. Of course, there is a bit of a learning curve just like any boardsport and you shouldn't expect to be pro overnight but it doesn't take long to get the hang of it. Come in-store and demo one yourself!
Can Onewheels go off road?
Yes, Onewheels can go off-road and can tackle almost any terrain. Dirt, sand, grass, gravel, you name it. If you’re serious about riding off-road, Onewheel+ XR is the king of shredding trails, but Pint isn’t afraid of the challenge either.
Can Onewheels go up hills?
Absolutely. Both Onewheel+XR and Onewheel Pint have no problems climbing hills up to 15% grade. Plus, they have regenerative braking so you can recharge on the way down.
Can I get my Onewheel wet (is it waterproof)?
Yes, you can get it wet but we suggest avoiding water if you can. Onewheels are water-resistant, not waterproof. They can withstand some moisture, but we recommend drying your board completely if it does get wet before charging to avoid damage.

Onewheel vs Electric Skateboard?
Onewheel is super unique version of an electric skateboard. It is very different than your traditional board. Traditional electric skateboards have four wheels and have very little learning curve. Most people can jump on one and get going right away. Onewheel has one big wheel and a bit of a learning curve. Once you get the hang of it, it offfers an unique experience. We suggest to everyone to try both of styles of electric boards out. Come demo in-store and we can answer any questions.
