Recall Notice: Onewheel Self-Balancing Electric Skateboards by ‘Future Motion’

The Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) has issued a recall notice for Onewheel, the self-balancing electric skateboards produced by ‘Future Motion.’ The CPSC has identified a potential safety issue with these boards related to their balancing functionality when the weight limit is exceeded, which poses a significant risk of crashes.

Tragically, the CPSC recall notice links at least four fatalities and numerous injuries to these skateboards.

As a result of this safety concern, a recall has been initiated, affecting a total of 300,000 Onewheel boards. The manufacturer, ‘Future Motion,’ has indicated that some models can be updated to include weight limit warnings for users. However, it is important to note that certain models will need to be disposed of entirely due to the inability to address the safety issue through updates.
