This seems obvious, but most electric vehicles still feel like non-electric vehicles. If you know how to ride a bike, you also know how to ride an electric bike. If you can ride a skateboard, odds are you can probably figure out an electric skateboard.
However, the Onewheel+, and now its update, the Onewheel+ XR, operates outside of the boundaries of physics and logic. It’s unlike any board I have ever ridden. The thick deck is balanced on a fat, heavy tire that’s 10 inches wide and 10 inches across. When you step onto the board, the Onewheel’s three gyroscopes and three accelerometers kick into action. The motor starts and all of a sudden you, and the board, are held level.
