Basic Operation

  • Switch to Onewheel+ using power switch on the side.

    Step fully and firmly on both sides of the blue dividing line.

  • Always wear a helmet.

    Lean on a friend to get started.

    Slowly come up for balance.

  • Onewheel+ will engage when you reach a horizontal orientation.

    Lean forward to accelerate.

    Lean back to slow down.

    Lean side-to-side to turn.

  • Slow down to < 1 mph and with your toe planted, lift your heel from one side of the rider dtection area.

    You can also jump off with both feet, but never remove only one foot.

Regenerative Braking

Decelerating while going downhill recharges the Onewheel+ battery.

WARNING Riding hills exceeding a 15% grade is extremely dangerous and may result in loss of control or damage to your Onewheel+.


Understanding The Footpad

The front footpad is pressure sensitive and divided into two zones - one on each side of the central line. Both zones must be pressed to begin riding. To stop, slow to a standstill and then remove your feet from one/both zones.

TIP: Avoid repositioning your foot while riding.


Direction and Speed

Lean forward to move forward, and lean back to slow down or to move backwards. The more you lean the faster you’ll go.


Use subtle heel-toe pressure for turning left or right. You will begin to turn in the direction you lean. The more you lean, the sharper the turn.
