craftnRide partners with Future Motion Inc

Future Motion, the company behind Onewheel electric boards, has officially entered a new chapter in its journey by partnering with Craft&Ride to offer Performance Tires and Freeride Bumpers through its online store. This marks the first time Future Motion has collaborated with a third-party retailer, paving the way for a new era in the Onewheel community.

Previously, Onewheel shops were restricted from selling third-party accessories, making this partnership with Craft&Ride a significant shift in strategy. The collaboration promises to enhance the riding experience for Onewheel enthusiasts by providing high-quality, durable accessories designed to meet the demands of both casual riders and thrill-seekers alike.

Introducing the Performance Treaded Tire

The Performance Treaded Tire, now available on Craft&Ride, is touted as the best tire for the Onewheel GT. This 7.0” wide tire offers a unique riding experience, blending softness, smoothness, grip, and stability with nimbleness. Its hybrid design makes it an excellent choice for both off-road adventures and street cruising, ensuring versatility for every rider’s needs.

Unveiling the Freeride Bumpers

Craft&Ride is also introducing the Freeride Bumpers, the first-ever heavy-duty bumpers available for the Pint X model. Constructed from ultra-durable UHMWPE, these bumpers promise to outlast the standard stock bumpers significantly. Designed to protect the board’s internals from harsh impacts and rough terrains, the Freeride Bumpers are an essential upgrade for riders who push their Onewheels to the limit.

Ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), also known as high-modulus polyethylene (HMPE), is a type of thermoplastic polyethylene characterized by its extremely long molecular chains. These long chains enhance load transfer to the polymer backbone, resulting in a material with exceptional toughness and the highest impact strength among all thermoplastics. UHMWPE’s unique properties make it an ideal choice for applications requiring high durability and resistance to wear and impact. [1]

A New Direction for Onewheel

This partnership between Future Motion and Craft&Ride represents a forward-thinking approach to the Onewheel ecosystem. By embracing third-party collaborations, Future Motion is opening doors to a broader range of high-quality accessories that enhance and personalize the Onewheel experience. This move is expected to foster a more vibrant and diverse community of riders, united by their love for innovation and adventure.

As Onewheel continues to evolve, this collaboration signifies a commitment to bringing joy and excitement to the riding experience. With Performance Tires and Freeride Bumpers now available through Craft&Ride, riders have more options than ever to optimize their boards for any journey ahead.
