Pre Orders | The End Is Near?

  • Somebody on the facebook group for Pint "owners" just said they talked to Support, and well... here's their comment:

    "just got off the phone with Ramona from future motion and after getting heated with her about why their have been so many push backs this week she finally informed me that they have almost halted production for the time being, and that in total they have only shipped 112 pints so far and they anticipate only being able to ship as many in the month of august. They are planning on making an announcement in the coming days."

  • @Alki_Soupboy man, that sounds dubious as hell to me -- why would she volunteer that info to an already-angry customer? i guess we'll know in the next several days, but i'm not buying it.

  • @Franko Yeah, like I said... random Facebook quote. Hopefully it's not true.

  • soooo glad I splurged for the XR

  • @Alki_Soupboy y do i have a feeling that the 1st shipments received, which some got reviewed on youtube -- were able to travel much further on one battery charge than advertised. So they're limiting the battery on all others to differentiate from and sell more XRs.

  • @brahlay I don't know... I'm not going to speculate too much until we hear actual evidence of this, but if it's true I guess we will see. Could have been a facebook troll too. I just thought I'd share since I had a slight heart attack after reading that and wanted to share my heart attack with ya'll :)

    I think the same thing every day!

  • About 4 hours ago, I called Onewheel and went to customer service.. My reason of calling was to ask when the Pre Orders would be over. What my call turned into was 30 minutes of waiting music and Onewheel hanging up on me. Now I do not mean for this to be hate on Onewheel by any means but I think that the reason of not getting an answer might have been because of everyone else calling in on behalf of their pint orders. Have any of you gotten to speak on customer service? How did it go?

  • I noted in the other thread but I was hung up on after around 5-10 minutes of hold music three times in a row.
    When I got through, I was given the reasoning of "they're ramping up still. They'll be able to do more and more every day".
    This had not really matched reality.

    If the OP is still interested in buying one, please know that realistically - without the shady optimism - you will likely not receive your order until October at minimum.
    Many of us who ordered in March are at mid August already. Pushed back over a month after the first orders finally went out.
    Even if they suddenly ramped up and succeeded at shipping 100+ a day, I'd still say at least October for any new order.

  • @Ethan_Sonberg there were many calls that included 3 mins of wait and then THEY disconnected the call... its becoming very unprofessional. They need a new PR team all together.

  • @Ethan_Sonberg I email them my question and got them answered the same day. Calling them is just a waste of time.

  • @ayeloren Do you have some secret email that you sent your question to??? I've been waiting for 3 days to hear back from support@ Onewheel. You must not have been asking about the delay lol.

  • I did not know that you could email them, I appreciate all of your help. I no longer am purchasing a Pint through the website of Onewheel but I am getting it at my local Surf Shop.

  • @Ethan_Sonberg that'll take even longer I feel

  • Well @TyDie I am getting mine in 9 days, and as said in my more resent post, I also get a $100 discount because I Pre Ordered it. I will be putting more posts on it when I get my Pint.

  • @Ethan_Sonberg If I hadn't pre-ordered in March, your route is absolutely the one I would have chosen instead. It's basically standard practice for a manufacturer to send a lot of inventory to their top doors ASAP once production has begun. I know that Scheels in Reno will be getting their shipments in at the end of this month.

    Congrats BTW!
