 Onewheel Buying Guide: Pint vs Pint X?

The Onewheel Pint and Pint X are both compact and powerful electric skateboards. But you may be wondering what are the key differences and which version is right for me? In this article, we break down specs and our personal experience about Onewheel’s Pint and Pint X so that you can make an educated decision on which model is the right one to buy.




Design and Portability


One of the main appeals of the Onewheel Pint series is its compact and portable design, allowing riders to easily carry it on the go. When it comes to size, both models are 27 inches long, making them equally convenient for commuting or taking along on outdoor adventures. Whether it’s on the bus, in a coffee shop, or under your desk at work, either model is a great choice because of the small amount of space it takes up.





Both models also come with an integrated carrying Megahandle making them a breeze to transport, ensuring you're always ready to hit the road or explore new terrains. Another feature the two share is a Lightbar integrated into the front footpad for sense pad indication, battery monitoring, and in-ride alerts.



Power and Performance


The primary distinction between the Onewheel Pint and Pint X lies in their power and performance capabilities. The Pint X takes the performance up a notch, catering to those seeking an exhilarating riding experience with a top speed of 18 mph (vs. 16 mph on the Pint). Equipped with a more potent motor and battery system, the Pint X offers increased torque, range and speed compared to its sibling, the Pint. Riders can expect faster acceleration, a longer range, higher top speeds, and better hill climbing abilities with the Pint X. 




Range and Battery Life


When it comes to range and battery life, both the Pint and Pint X offer impressive capabilities, but with some variations. The Pint provides a solid range, typically covering around 6-8 miles on a single charge with a charge time of about 2 hours. On the other hand, the Pint X boasts an enhanced battery pack, providing riders with an extended range of 8-12 miles but has a much longer charge time of 3 hours and 45 minutes. If you plan on longer rides or commutes, the Pint X might be the better choice to ensure you reach your destination without the need for a mid-ride recharge.





Naturally, pricing plays a significant role in any purchasing decision. As the more advanced model, the Onewheel Pint X ($1,500) carries a higher price tag compared to the standard Pint ($750).  When it comes down to buying the Pint X for double the price, you get increased speed and range with a longer charging time. The increased performance and extended range of the Pint X come at an added cost, appealing to riders who are willing to invest in a premium riding experience. However, it's important to weigh the price difference against the specific needs and preferences to make an informed decision.



Which is better, the Onewheel Pint or Pint X?


The Onewheel Pint and Pint X both provide riders with incredible versatility and fun. While the Pint offers a fantastic entry-level experience, the Pint X takes it to the next level with superior performance and extended range. Whether you're a beginner seeking a thrilling introduction to electric boards or an experienced rider looking to upgrade, the choice between the Pint and Pint X ultimately comes down to your desired range, transportation needs and budget.
