Pro Front and back LED lights promote safe riding
The LED lights keep the path visible and help the rider stay visible to others. The LEDs can be toggled on or off with the available app.
Pro Can be used on multiple terrains
This board can be used for tricks, city commuting, or trail riding. Each riding mode can be selected using the OneWheel app or the pressure sensor on the device (though that is not recommended).
Pro It can get wet
You can ride it in the rain or on the beach. No need to dodge puddles on concrete. Be warned: your shoes and pant legs will still get soaked without the optional fender. The treadless tire grips wet concrete well but will slip in the mud. Cleaning is a breeze – just grab the hose.
Pro Durable like a tank
Its heavy-duty construction makes it very durable.
Pro Really fast charge time
The board charges in less than 30 minutes.
Pro Powers up hills
The motor is strong enough to accelerate uphill. It’s just as much fun carving uphill as downhill – or on the flats for that matter.
Pro Dedicated iPhone and Android app
The OneWheel app connects using Bluetooth 4.0 and can control a number of board settings. Depending on rider preferences, the riding mode can be changed from classic to sporty in order to be more responsive. The LED lights can also be adjusted using the app. Tutorial videos and free firmware updates for the board are included.
Pro Regenerative braking
OneWheel recovers up to 30 percent of total power output when braking, which helps the longevity of the device’s battery.
Pro Incredible rider control and tight turn radius
With some practice you can turn 180 degrees on a dime. Its carving ability, rider control, braking, and acceleration will surprise you. If you are an easy rider, cruising is great fun. If you like to push the limit, it will challenge your balance and bravery.
The weight makes it stable under your feet.
Con Design could cause easy injury
The design of this deck is very sketchy. It is just asking to eject people off the front end the moment they have too much forward lean. This is not a child's toy. It can be dangerous, especially at the higher speeds. There is definitely a learning curve. You will get thrown at first. It will hurt. A helmet and hand/wrist protection is highly recommended.
Con Very heavy
It weighs in at 25 lb, which may not seem heavy at first – but wait until you have to carry it around for a while.
