I rode the one-wheeled skateboard of the future around New York City — and people kept stopping me to ask where to get one.

“I’d say the Onewheel is pretty easy to pick up compared to other board sports."

"You also really notice the benefits of the only having one wheel when you’re turning. On a skateboard, sharp turns are pretty difficult and most of the time you turn by leaning — but the four wheels cause your turns to be more sweeping and broad. Thanks to the Onewheel’s single wheel, it’s much easier to weave your way around people or rotate around by leaning heavily in one direction while keeping your balance tipped forward.”
