Please note: The contributor section and the publicly-accessible section use two different themes.

We're looking for volunteers that are passionate about Onewheel and want to help their community.

Why?

This website is powered by MediaWiki.

Onewheel launched in 2014 but even today it's still surprisingly hard to find good information on this unique device. We want all Onewheel enthusiasts to have access to all the available information without needing to constantly monitor the different communities for frequent updates.

Future Motion has been completely absent from their own forum, ignored repeated "Product Wishlist" requests from their customers and abused their censorship powers over the years. They also refuse to help owners diagnose and repair small issues themselves. Their Service center won't provide estimates and cannot be reached directly. Repairs typically take multiple weeks and may or may not be covered under warranty.

MediaWiki provides a great structure for sharing knowledge on these devices, its ever expanding 3rd party ecosystem as well as the different mods developed by the community. Beginners can quickly get up to speed and find simple troubleshooting information; more advanced users can discuss advanced information by contributing and having discussions.

We are fostering a positive community that aims to propel the sport forward. Join us!
