Few days ago, Future Motion announced its new one-wheeled self-balancing electric skateboard, the Onewheel+ XR – an advancement of last year’s Onewheel+, which was faster, quieter, and easier ride than the original version from 2015.
So, instead of around 6 to 8 miles (10 – 13 km) the old one could go, the XR can ride between 12 – 18 miles (19 – 30 km). The company said it is also a bit more powerful but hasn’t specified the exact extra amount.
Future Motion, has kept the board’s rugged design, which also features a rear light to be more visible at night. Operation sequence is also the same; you sit on it to balance it out, lean forward or backward according to the direction you want to go, and turn by twisting your legs and leveraging on the board ends.
Customers will have to pay for this luxury, though, because the Onewheel+ XR costs $1,799.
