SANTA CRUZ, Calif., June 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Future Motion, the makers of Onewheel, announced today that its global community of riders has collectively logged more than 52,500,000 miles on Onewheels since the company released its first model in 20141. The data comes from Onewheel’s companion app, which riders can utilize to track rides, adjust Digital Shaping characteristics of the board, discover group rides, and more. The accomplishment comes at a time of rapid expansion in Onewheel adoption, with riders logging more than 27.3 million miles in 2020 alone.
«This isn’t just an incredible achievement for Onewheel, it’s a pretty awesome moment for team human,» remarked Kyle Doerksen, CEO and founder of Future Motion. «There is a revolution happening right now in how people move through the world. We’re at a point where it’s not a matter of if you choose a personal electric vehicle to get around—it’s a question of which one is right for you. We’ve always been driven to create micromobility with soul and to make the future rad and it’s clear that that ethos resonates with a lot of folks.»
While shared and fleet micromobility solutions within the e-scooter and e-bike space achieved a total of just over 400 million miles ridden between 2014 – 20192, the 50-million-mile achievement is a first for a consumer-owned electric micromobility platform like Onewheel.
Additional notable data points:
- Countries where a logged ride has occurred on a Onewheel: 139
- Single longest continuous ride (with charging stops): 2,796 miles by Canadian Jon Shier
- The record for most miles to a single rider belongs to Javier Starks who has ridden over 26,000 miles on his Onewheel+XR
«This is the result of a lot of people having a lot of fun,» says Jack Mudd, Chief Evangelist at Onewheel. «When you focus on creating an epic experience and build a culture around it, it’s something people want to be a part of. It’s exciting, you feel like you’re a part of a movement and it’s just the beginning.»
