One Wheel XR

by editor

Here we have a one-wheeled skateboard arrangement.

It’s from a company called, cleverly, One Wheel, and, as you can see, it’s a bit of board with a wheel in it.

That’ll be $3k, thanks. Ka-chingggggggg!

Okay, there’s more to it than just the plank and the roller. The XR model shown here is a ‘self-balancing and remote-less electric board that will make you call any daily journey an adventure!’

That’s according to the website.

There’s also an integrated lightbar in the front footpad for sensepad simple-stop dismount technology, ride alerts, and battery monitoring.

Of course it has an app, and this model, the XR, is the hot-rod one. It’ll go 30kph and has a maximum range of 29km, so a run to the nearest medical centre for Betadine and Band-Aids should be a breeze.

Check out your local skate shop to see the One Wheel range – there’s a smaller one that costs a fair bit less – or have a look at online stores like crooze.com.au.

Is it just us or does it look like something out of The Flintstones? Did anyone else think Betty Rubble was hot?
