It’s been about three years since we reviewed the Onewheel. Solidly constructed and a ton of fun, it was a bit on the expensive side. Future Motion, the company behind the Onewheel, has announced a smaller, more affordable Onewheel Pint which includes some new features.
“So many people want to get in on the Onewheel experience but haven’t been able to afford it. This product unlocks the Onewheel experience for a massive new group of aspiring riders. From the beginning, we’ve wanted to expand our product line to include a more approachable Onewheel for coffee shop runs, micro-adventures, commute-hacking and casual riders. New York City is all about diversity, and Pint is about embracing the diversity of our riders. In the same way that a car company makes different cars for different purposes and people, Future Motion now offers several differentiated products designed for various uses rather than one-size-fits-all.”Future Motion founder and CEO Kyle Doerksen
After having refined and updated the speed and range on the original Onewheel with the Onewheel+ XR, the new pint-sized (pun intended) version offers up a few new features:
- Maghandle, an integrated fold-out carrying handle on the side of the board that makes Pint easy to pick up and take with you, whether it’s onto the subway or into your house.
Simplestoptechnology, which enables a simplified ride experience to help novices get riding with confidence right away.
- Lightbar, an LED light display on the board that gives
visualindication of battery status and other notifications.
Alongside the new features, the Onewheel Pint has a top speed of 16 mph 26 km/h) and a range of 6-8 miles (10-13 km). It is also the first wheel from the company which is available in multiple colours: Slate, Sand, and a limited launch edition Sage.
