Future Motion, Inc. is a California-based company established in 2013 by founder and CEO Kyle Doerksen. Onewheel was the first product launched by the venture-backed company. Current models include the Onewheel GT, Pint X, and Pint. Discontinued or upgraded models include the Onewheel, Onewheel+, and Onewheel+ XR.
Since its launch, the Onewheel has been the subject of multiple personal injury and wrongful death lawsuits. Allegations against the manufacturer include that the product itself contains a dangerous defect that can result in serious injury or death to riders.
Several riders have been injured or lost their lives due to the device suddenly stopping causing a rider to nosedive without warning. Additionally, injured parties argue that the pushback feature can cause a rider to lose their balance presenting a significant risk of injury.
In 2022, Onewheel manufacturer Future Motion, Inc. issued a recall of the front footpads for the Onewheel GT. According to a safety notice, the recall comes on the heels of hundreds of reports that the board continued to operate after a rider dismounted. Approximately 20,000 units were affected by the recall, which applied to footpads installed on the device and sold separately.
The Onewheel is a self-balancing, battery-powered transportation device (sometimes called a hover board) that allows riders to stand on a skateboard-like deck propelled by a single tire. The Onewheel system uses gyroscopes and accelerometers to help riders balance and steer using their weight and positioning on the board. It can reach speeds of up to 20 mph or more.
In recent years, both the Onewheel and the Onewheel+ XR have gained a following of passionate riders, many of whom have a healthy respect for its learning curve and potential risks.
Unfortunately, not all riders were prepared for the possible defects that may contribute to serious crashes. This includes:
Even when riders dawn appropriate safety gear, respect the Onewheel, and recognize signs of pushback, they may still experience serious accidents and injuries if the device unexpectedly shuts off and nosedives.
Lawsuits filed across the country include details of life-threatening injuries caused by Onewheel nosedive and pushback accidents. Potential harm from the device is widespread and ranges in severity.
