Alt-Wheels Game Changer? Onewheel Pint.

This was a surprise:

Onewheel Pint

It’s smaller and lighter than the Onewheel models out there all over the place. It also has less range but it can Fast Charge — with an optional fast charger — to full in an hour, so that’s good. It also has an easier way to carry it: A folding handle.

What’s not known yet? The most important thing.

What’s the weight?!

It’s not on their website. It’s not in any video I’ve seen.

Even so, eSk8 reviewer Jay Boston was so impressed that he immediately bought one:

Here’s someone who got to ride it:

Onewheel doesn’t even mention weight in their model comparison video:

Onewheel Pint vs. Onewheel+ XR

Even though people are shown lifting it easily, I need to know the damn weight!

The higher-end Onewheels are tanks and just about weigh as much as one. But that hasn’t stopped people from owning it! I think this was my first sighting of one in NYC:

And I noted seeing a Onewheel in these posts (alas, no photos!):

As I was finishing this post, I got word from someone on Reddit that it weighs a whopping 23 pounds!

Ouch!

Still, I’m intrigued by it. Very! If Onewheel had an event in NYC where I could try it, I’d go.

Same-day update: My fault. The specs were on the Onewheel site but I kept scrolling past the option for them. OK, I blame bad web design too!

23 pounds confirmed. Ouch.
