This powered Onewheel Off-Road Skateboard is an awesome way to ride around just about anywhere.
I know it’s called a skateboard but, wouldn’t plan on doing a lot of tricks with it as it’s much more of a scooter crammed into a skateboard shape than an actual skateboard. Also it’s one wheel and heavy weight (30 pounds) would more like result in a sprained ankle than a Frontside 360 Ollie.
As a scooter, though, it’s pretty awesome. Featuring a 500W motor and a 6 to 7 mile (abound 10 km) range, it’s perfect for short commutes to campus/work at up to 15 MPH (24 kph). Same goes for short trips to the beach or along hiking and biking paths.
Since it was built to be “off-road”, the one large wheel will roll over rocks, roots, bumps and cracks that would send you flying from a normal skateboard.
Yes, it will go uphill but, as you would expect, it won’t be as fast. Also, doing a lot of uphill will shorten the range quite a bit.
