I've only had my OW a few days, but I'm definitely thinking about what to do with it when you arrive at your destination. I'm in Seattle, so the OW is a gritty mess with leaves stuck all over it when I'm done. It's heavy as hell too so I'm thinking something with wheels, but all I've found thus far I think I'd feel dumb toting around on my back as I ride...
There's this guy, which makes the mannequin look like he's about to fall over.
And then this one.
Do you think these look to big to be riding around with?
@paulettejanep Hi and welcome!
There has been some discussion about bags and different carrying solutions.
If you haven't already, here are some links for inspiration:
Personally I haven't gotten a bag for my OW yet, but I haven't really traveled with it.
Those bags you mentioned might look a bit big strapped on your back yeah.
germx pretty much summed up what I was gonna do. But if your tire is dirty, maybe some sort of towel that wraps around with velcro or something? Not many accessories for the onewheel. Kinda have be inventive sometimes I guess
We just finished designing 1.0 version of the bag. Will be posting pics shortly :)
@DVO Yeah, I found that now that I have the fender on, It rests fine against my leg. And I can now carry it without having to hold it awkward or anything. No more worries about dirt tires :D
Also looks like folks using regular backpacks https://www.instagram.com/p/_Un8tFwT7q/
So far I've only carried using a wheeled back, which probably doesnt make too much sense as a backpack.
Here's a link to the final version of the bag, with order link. It lack the shoulder strap, but we'll add it for anyone who wants.
I use a backpack about half the time. I suggest a large lightweight pack with a waist strap. It doesn't have to be big enough to zip the one wheel into. My one wheel sticks out the top of the pack, and it's just fine to carry that way.
For the muck, I have a clear trash bag inside my pack. Just slide the OneWheel into it before inserting into the backpack.
I keep everything else in the pack inside one of those large clear ziplocks that are made for organizing luggage. That makes it super easy to pull everything out, side the OneWheel in, then add my stuff back in & zip up.
A wide opening on the backpack helps too. This is also great for recharging, since the top of the board sticks out enough that it's easy to plugin the charger and power up at Starbucks.
Enjoy your ride!
@jeff8v7 Which backpack do you use?
I use the patagonia black hole 90L. It fits the Onewheel just fine and you can include a helmet too. No wheels, but it has 2 nice straps. I feel like with the weight of the onewheel you need a strap for both shoulders.
So this is a backpack that I had sitting around that worked perfect. The nicely padded back along with the zipper at the bottom that allows the board to fit through but not the tire was just as needed.. Carried the board comfortably thru the airport no problem.
@rue1013 What backpack is that?
@rue1013 I was actually considering altering a backpack to add a zipper or velcro opening at the bottom for that exact purpose! You pretty much read my mind. Let us all know what kind of pack that is. That's probably the best option I've seen so far... not too big and two straps evenly distribute the weight of the board:thumbsup:
I have had this bag for about 10 yrs. It's made by Nike SB. It was gifted to me by a friend who works for the company. It really is the
....best bag for its purpose and almost seems like it was made for the OW!
@MichaelW I was looking and it seems to be the Nike Eugene model. @rue1013 correct me if I'm wrong.

If it is that model so far it appears very hard to find.
