Onewheel doubles the range of its electric skateboard

Onewheel doubles the range of its electric skateboard
From Engadget - January 8, 2018

The Onewheel+ XR is more powerful than its predecessor, with increased torque for hill climbing and "higher performance for all riders." It's not clear, however, if these improvements are a result of the battery or further refinements to the "Hypercore" motor. Regardless, it should give the rideable some much-needed oomph while you are carving across sand, fields and stick-riddled tracks. The riding experience is otherwise unchangedyou press on the nose to accelerate and lean with your heels or toes to turn. There's a lot to learn, but I was able to ride the older Onewheel+ fairly comfortably after just a few hours in a parking lot.

The Onewheel+ XR costs $1799 and is available for pre-order today. The older Onewheel+ can still be bought for $1499at that price, though, you could buy a second-gen Dual+ Boosted Board. Decisions, decisions.
