Image of a one-wheeled skateboardManufactured by Future Motion, Inc., Onewheel is a one-wheel mobility vehicle that enables users to stand on a deck (similar to a skateboard) while being propelled by a single, powered wheel. The One Wheel is self-balancing and runs on an internal battery. Riders steer by shifting their weight on the board.

The Onewheel XR and Onewheel Pint can reach speeds of up to 19 mph. While the Onewheel is intended to be a fun and fast way for people to get around, riders report that they have fallen victim to one of many defects. The most serious causes the Onewheel rider to “Nosedive.” This is an accident in which the motor shuts off without warning when the internal battery dies – no matter how fast the Onewheel is going. This sudden seizure causes the rider to Nosedive off of the board and slam onto the ground nose first. When riders take a Nosedive at speeds up to 19 mph, it can lead to serious and long-lasting injuries.
