the electric rideable is like a skateboard and a balance board featuring a chunky tire which sits in the middle of two wooden panels at the nose and tail of the skateboard for your feet. the main differences? well the XR not only boasts a ‘hypercore motor’ but a new battery system that doubles the range to between 12 and 18 miles, terrain depending. the onewheel+ is currently avaialble for $1,500 whilst the XR costs an additional $300.
