It is worth to buy XR now?



  • @Motoproponent I live in poland so there is no auctions with used OW's. I just need a one month to earn enough moneys to buy new xr.



  • @Andersen142 in my opinion the XR is better than the Pint. As far as I'm concerned the Pint is a CG effect in a bunch of online videos because no one has gotten their hands on one except for Youtubers.



  • Definitely. I bought an XR 4 months ago and wish I had gotten one 4 years ago now!
    Best thing I own. For sure.
    Probably like you, I’ve read 100’s of reviews, posts, etc and I can honestly saw I’ve only seen one person comment that they regretted the spend. The carve, the community, the board, the stoke all live up to the hype. And you can probably get a few bucks for all the other toys, video games, and hobby equipment you have cuz you’ll want to spend every spare minute you have riding this thing after it arrives.



  • I originally ordered the Pint, but I shortly cancelled that order in place of the XR. Ordered that on June-18, and got it delivered on June-26, two days ahead of original estimate. I'm really glad I got the XR, I did 9 miles today (so far) with battery to spare. I think the Pint was a great marketing decision to open up the market to more folks who can't afford an XR.

    I think the idea of a smaller Onewheel is a good decision and that's going to be great for a lot of folks especially in the city areas. With that said, I have zero regurts getting the XR: it's just a better fit for what I want to do.

    I didn't cancel my order due to the Pint ship delays: I've gone through a few kickstarters to know that stuff happens in the first production runs. For me it was really about the range of the XR and it seemed better suited for trail riding. I thought i wanted the Pint for that simple stop thingie, but it's really no problem dismounting from the XR. Any other Pint feature I thought I really wanted I really don't care about at this point with the XR. Miles of smiles in my first week, I love this thing!

    Three numbers I will never forget:

    1. wedding anniversary.
    2. Birthdays for my two boys.
    3. My Onewheel order number.


  • @Enterusername in poland OW XR costs 9000zl(2400$) its much more expensive than in US



  • I plunked my money down on the pint and will probably buy an XR as well. I like the range of the XR and the lightness and better portability of the pint. I haven't ridden any of them yet so it'll all be new. I do have the advantage of skateboarding and surfing growing up but I have no illusions that I'll be able to just jump on and go. I'll be starting out very slowly and carefully. I hope to never get to the nosedive that some peeps have experienced. I'll see how it goes.



  • @kraken640 you will be able to just jump on if your slow and careful; skilz are transferable



  • As excited as I am to get my Pint, Im nore than 1000% confident it will still not outstrip the XR. The XR is FMs flagship product and legitimate mid range transportation alternative vs last mile option. Im tempted to buy every single one I see selling used for 1500, lol. They are just super quality products, that admittedly must be approached with a measure of caution and used responsibly. Not a toy by any means. Just my 2 cents.



  • @b0ardski -Is right.
    I had one nosedive pushing slightly uphill near top speed. Ran it out like my old skateboarding days, no problem. Old skilz come in handy, you will jump on and go.
    And there is no way you start out slowly can carefully if you have that background. Once you get on, all bets are off. Definitely start off with a helmet...

    ...and wrist guards if you use your hands at work. I will say my switch skills from boarding are slower to adjust; smooth pavement only at 73 miles in.

    Agree on the wrist guards . . . broke one on the second fall, would've been my wrist! I say after over 2200 miles, my switch skills are exactly the same as boarding . . . can't switch on snow or street! :D
