Onewheel riding mode poll

Skyline is considered the more responsive mode for the Onewheel Pint. You are getting more torque and a snappier ride witch put a bit more responsible on the rider. The pushback is more subtle compared to Pacific so keep that in mind if you decide to run Skyline as your daily riding mode.

If you are looking for smooth carves Pacific is the way for you. It gives a high level of carveability combined with a smooth power curve making this my daily mode for commuting and floating around. The other benefits are a bit more extra miles, (this depends more on how you ride than the mode you have).

When I hit the trails I switch over to Skyline for that extra torque that help with getting up hills, keep the nose from diving and getting over rocks and other obstacles when going off-road.

  • Pacific – speed limit 16 mph (26 km/h) – High levels of carveabality with smooth power. The board allows a good amount of tilt while riding, making it great for tight turns and wavy lines on streets and city riding.
  • Elevated – speed limit 16 mph (26 km/h) – Quite similar to Pacific but with a raised nose in case you run into clearance issues due to the grade of the incline/declines.Elevate the nose for maximum hill climbing.
  • Skyline – speed limit 16 mph (26 km/h) – Ultimate mode for trail and off-road riding. Most responsive mode for going fast with maximum torque. Recommeded for experienced riders.
