Next-gen Onewheels are here, and one of them can do 32 miles on a single charge

It has been a little over two years since Future Motion dropped a new Onewheel on us, but the company hasn’t been resting on its laurels for those two years. Quite the contrary, in fact. Today, the company is back with not one but two new models: Onewheel GT and the Onewheel Pint X.

Both machines are evolutions of their predecessors (the Onewheel+ XR and the original Onewheel Pint), but as far as evolutions go, they’re pretty dramatic. Future Motion describes them both as a “quantum leap in performance and capability,” and while we haven’t yet had a chance to ride one and see for ourselves, the specs alone suggest they’re probably not exaggerating.

Onewheel Uncharted: Live Event

Let’s start with the Onewheel GT, the company’s new flagship. Arguably the biggest leap forward here is the GT’s impressively long range. Whereas Future Motion’s previous flagship, the Onewheel+ XR, boasted a maximum range of about 18 miles per charge, the new GT model kicks that number up to a whopping 32 miles. This is largely due to newer, more power-dense batteries, more efficient motors and electronics, and slightly thicker footboards that provide more room for battery cells.

Extreme range isn’t the only improvement though: The GT also sports 50% more power and torque (it’s apparently the “first Onewheel with 3 horsepower”), as well as a few new design elements that boost comfort and performance. These include things that were previously only available via aftermarket upgrades, like concave footpads and treaded tires for off-road riding, as well as things that are effectively improvements to existing features, like brighter LEDs on the nose and tail, a custom tire profile, and a built-in “Maghandle” for easy carrying.

But while the GT is geared toward peak performance, the new Pint X is no slouch either. “Pint X is what you want to take on the city,” says Future Motion Chief Evangelist Jack Mudd. “It combines the speed and range of our former flagship product, the Onewheel+ XR, with the compact size of the Onewheel Pint to create this perfect blend of capability and portability. Plus it’s insanely fun to ride.”

Mudd isn’t blowing smoke here — at least if the on-paper specs of the Pint are to be believed. Despite being approximately the same size as the company’s original Onewheel Pint, the Pint X offers a mind-blowing 18 miles of range per charge. It’s also slightly faster than the original Pint, offering a top speed of 18 miles per hour — two miles per hour faster than its predecessor.

“It’s amazing to see how far our riders have progressed this budding sport,” says Mudd, “and with more power, more torque, and [more] range, I cannot wait to see where they take it next.”

Both the Onewheel GT and Onewheel Pint X are available for pre-order starting today via Future Motion’s website. Onewheel Pint X retails for $1,400, whereas the Onewheel GT can be had for $2,200. According to Future Motion, “special launch promotions are available for the first 48 hours including free fenders, bundle savings up to $275, in-app badges, an exclusive Neon launch colorway for Pint X, and free prioritized shipping (U.S, lower 48).”

It's not you; Windows is causing the issues this time. If the VPN on your Windows 11 or Windows 10 computer is having a hard time connecting, it is likely because of Microsoft's April security updates for Windows 11 (KB5036893 for) and Windows 10 (KB5036892), which have been reported to be the cause of the problems.

But there's good news. According to Microsoft, a patch is now available to fix the VPN problems users are experiencing.

This new Google Sheets feature is going to save so much time
Google Sheets is open in the Safari browser on a MacBook Air.

After Google I/O 2024, Google continues to roll out features that bolster its productivity apps -- this time, specifically with Google Sheets. As picked up by The Verge, Google has announced a much simpler way to generate easily formatted tables in the Sheets app. This new Sheets feature has been around for many years in Excel and has recently reached Google. Better late than never.

The option is called Convert to table, and you can use it by opening a Sheets document and clicking Format > Convert to table when the option reaches you later this month or early next. With this new option, Google aims for a more Excel-type experience by adding filters for each column. The rows also get visual separators, saving you time by not having to select the rows manually to turn them gray. The Convert to table feature also brings filters and column types and makes the drop-down menu creation easier.
