Introducing Onewheel+ XR
@gborrillo Hi (also to all of you following this post)
Finally my OW+ has been refunded by the seller after the problem I had and I will wait for the XR to come.
In the mean time if some of you would like to sell their "old" OW+, I could buy it (if the price is correct) as I would also love to offer one of these to my daughter.
So please let me know ;-)
Have a great day
@bvicochran Absolutely my man! Ill keep you posted.
I just wanted to say you have answered my dreams with this new OneWheel+ XR release, and XR is better then XL. I posted this back on 1/3/2016. The Onewheel+ XR fits right into the sweet spot of commuter vehicle, I will be buying one.
You team are amazing engineers!!
Thank you again
Ordered on Jan 20th. Super Stoked, Thank You...
Been looking at these for a while and the extra range will make this the perfect transportation for me. Can't wait until it is here!!
How will Overcharge protection work with the XR? For riders with homes on hilltops, this might become a huge issue?
@julian people say that NMC batteries degrade 2x faster than LFP batteries. will this be true with the onewheel+ xr? I just want to know everything before i drop 2k (after tax) on a piece of wood with a wheel
@drn3rd I live near the top of a hill, maybe not the biggest hill, but substantial and I was worried about it with my plus. It turns out this really is not an issue. regen can only recapture maybe 15% of what you burn going uphill, so a very short uphill backtrack is all it takes to safely descend pretty far. All i have to do is roll up my driveway (which is steep uphill) to the street and I'm good to descend down the big hill at the end of the street
@ryankimharrison This may or may not be true, but in reality it wouldn't make much of any difference. No battery pack in a OW is ever going to be replaced because it "wore out". You'd need to completely cycle the battery several thousand times before any degradation is apparent.
For some field data you can look to the auto-industry

XR is a week away from shipping and I am super stoked to add my XR Ready Float Plates in nasty hott pink > http://thefloat.life/product-category/float-plates/
