The electric skateboard Onewheel + XR: The new futuristic means of transport
The electric skateboard market is growing at a rapid pace and, as e-board enthusiasts know, new models are constantly being presented. In today’s post we will take a closer look at the Onewheel + XR electric skateboard from Future Motion. The new model of the self-balancing e-board is a futuristic means of transportation of a different kind. This electric skateboard is the successor to the Onewheel + model, which was presented in 2017 at the international trade fair for consumer electronics (CES).
The new electric skateboard is a perfect implementation of a surfboard or snowboard for the street. On the new Onewheel + XR you can experience the unique feeling of moving on water or deep snow. This innovative lifestyle product for urban areas is extremely stable. The e-board is equipped with an aluminum frame, a lithium iron phosphate battery, large foot pads made of Canadian maple, a wide Italian go-kart Slick from VEGA and LED lighting on the front and back.
In contrast to its predecessor Onewheel +, the XR not only has a “Hypercore motor”, but also a new battery system that doubles the range up to 25 km, depending on the terrain. The electric skateboard promises a fantastic driving experience and speeds of up to 30 km / h. The Onewheel + is currently available for $ 1,500 while the XR costs an additional $ 300. Incidentally, you can learn to ride the Onewheel + XR relatively quickly with the help of another person. Skateboarders and surfers have a clear advantage.
