Check out the comparison video from Onewheel below for an in-depth look at the new electric boards, or keep reading for the highlights.
The Onewheel GT is the new flagship model made for micro-mobility. It has twice as much torque as the previous model and promises 3 horsepower. The new 21700 battery can carry you 32 miles on a single charge and takes 3 hours to recharge fully once depleted.
Off-road performance has been improved thanks to new concave footboards as well as an optional treaded tire. If you plan to ride at night, you’ll appreciate the new lights, which are 300% brighter, keeping everything in sight. While not riding, the equipped Maghandle Pro should make the board easier to carry.
The Onewheel GT costs $2,200, but you can get $275 off if you order one during the launch weekend.
Onewheel Pint X
The Onewheel Pint X is an entry-level model built for those who favor convenience over raw power and speed. It provides 18 miles of range on a single charge and can zip you up to 18 mph through the city streets. It takes just under four hours to charge the battery fully.
Aside from its smaller size, the Pint X is the cheaper option of the two, for just $1,400. Similarly, you can save $200 if you pick one up this weekend.
Both the GT and the Pint X feature adjustable riding modes that can be controlled from the smartphone app. You can also monitor speed, check the battery level, and connect with other riders.
All in all, both boards are unique and versatile electric mobility solutions that stand out from the competition.
