Onewheel is a self-balancing single wheel electric board-sport, recreational personal transporter, often described as an electric skateboard. Unlike the electric unicycle, the rider's feet are typically pointed at a perpendicular angle to the wheel and direction of travel. If you are interested in trying an electric boardsport and more specifically an electric skateboard, the Onewheel is the way to go.
How It Started
It took our Founder/CEO Kyle Doerksen 8 years of tinkering, lots of coffee, and a handful of prototypes, but by the end of 2013, Kyle had created a riding experience so beautiful folks could hardly believe it. Kyle quit his day job, hired a team of like-minded individuals, launched Onewheel and has been helping to bring thousands of riders pure-joy moments ever since. Created in California, the line of Onewheel electric skateboard is now available in Canada.
The main models right now are the the Onewheel pint, Onewheel pint x and Onewheel GT. All three models will look similar but have different ride features, such as a different type of tire, longer range and higher top speed.

Tire/Wheel Options For Onewheel GT:
For your one wheel you can either get slick or treaded. Slick is better traction on dry pavement, fat and hard surfaces. Slick will also give the rider a slightly longer range as the wheel is a bit lither than the treaded alternative. If you do a lot of off-road, pumping trails and ride occasionally on loose terrains like gravel, sand or debris then treaded is the way to go. The treads give a lot more traction on the loose ground making it ideal for trails. This option is only available on the Onewheel GT.
