Two more Onewheel boards have appeared in the lineup of Future Motion. The Onewheel Pint X is an upgraded version of the Onewheel Pint from 2019. Future Motion’s new flagship is the Onewheel GT, a completely new board designed from scratch, including a new control system with higher voltage. It’s the first three-horsepower Onewheel the company ever created.
Curious about the features and want to compare the new Onewheel boards with the original Onewheel Pint and Onewheel XR? In this article we aim to cover that for you, so you know exactly which Onewheel to buy.
Onewheel Pint X
Onewheel Pint’s upgraded version
The Onewheel Pint X is Onewheel Pint’s big brother. It’s available in two colors: yellow and blue. Thanks to its size it’s easy to take the onewheel board with you, wherever you go. Cruising with the Onewheel Pint X feels like surfing or snowboarding on concrete or grass, leaving you with the ultimate board feeling. No matter the season and no matter where you are. In another blog about the story of Onewheel we explain more about what a Onewheel exactly is.
Double the range
While you don’t see the effect on the size of the board, the kilometer range of the Onewheel Pint X is wildly extended. With 19 to 29 km per charge the Pint X has double the range of the Onewheel Pint, which only lasts for 10 to 13 km. Meaning you won’t have to worry as much about draining batteries. The batteries of the Pint X are slightly heavier (12 kg) than those of the Pint (10,5 kg). And that's nice, because because of the larger battery, the battery of the Pint X (12 kg) is heavier than that of the Pint (10.5 kg).
Safe speed levels
With a speed of 30 km/h, the Onewheel Pint X has more speed than the base model. But only when you ride at topspeed. Most users ride at 24 km/h. A lower speed is more comfortable to drive at. And this way you prevent a nosedive.
Future Motion’s newest Onewheel
The Onewheel GT is Future Motion’s new flagship electric board. The company designed the board from scratch. In other words, we’re not talking about an upgraded version here, but about a brand new Onewheel board. Future Motion is convinced the Onewheel GT will become a top model in the world of electric boards.
The way you control the Onewheel GT is the same as with other Onewheel electric boards. You use your body to lean forward, backwards and sideways while riding. Mostly you use your legs to steer. Your core stays steady above the center of the board.
The Onewheel GT includes a new control system with a higher voltage. That, according to Future Motion, will deliver more power, torque and dynamic performance at all speeds. It’s the first three-horsepower Onewheel ever created by the company. The GT reaches a maximum speed of 30 km/h. Roughly the same, but because of the higher voltage slightly faster as the Onewheel XR.
Single charge riding
The new 21700 batteries get up to 52 km of range in one batch. A full day riding without the need to recharge. That is a huge advantage compared to the Onewheel XR and the Onewheel Pint X, which only last for 29 km. It wouldn’t come as a surprise that charging takes some time: approximately 200 minutes. With a fast charger the duration can be reduced to 110 minutes.
Built for every landscape
Concrete pavements and roads are not the only playground for the Onewheel GT. Dunes, forest, and grass are landscapes where the GT feels perfectly at home. The Onewheel is designed for these off road adventures. Front and rear concave footpads, a custom tire profile for carvability along with a treaded tire option, and high quality grip tape make you feel safe and comfortable while riding and give a true boardfeel. Another option are the slick tires. These are specifically for asphalt and smooth roads.
Extra features Onewheel GT
- The Onewheel GT comes standard with Onewheel’s aluminum, rubber gripped, premium Maghandle Pro that makes it easy to carry the GT around. The materials provide a comfortable and steady feeling.
- The LED lights on the front and back are with 300% more lumens than the Onewheel XR so you’ll be even more safe in the dark.
- In the Onewheel app you can check your battery status, customize the way your board rides, connect with friends and more. This is only a feature of the Onewheel XR and Onewheel GT.
There are several Onewheel GT accessories available. Home chargers, bumpers, Fenders, Maghandles can be replaced with other colors. This way you create your own unique Onewheel.
