Winter Storage Tips For Onewheel
Here at One Stop Board Shop, we want to make sure you stay riding all year long! Whether it's prepping your Onewheel for those winter rides, or maintaining the overall health of your battery until the Spring season, we are here to help. Check out some important information below.
Waterproofing Your Ride
With the winter season here, that can only mean one thing - ice, rain, and snow. These are not the most optimal riding conditions. While all Onewheels may be water-resistant, they are not waterproof. Ideally you should not be riding through snow or puddles, as they may have a negative impact on your board in the future, through accumulation of moisture in your board.
If you plan to ride in submerged conditions, we highly recommend adding this extra layer of protection to your board, to prevent water damage while riding through mud, puddles, or snow. If you are really planning to ride all winter, waterproofing is almost a must. Are you interested in badgering your ride? Schedule your appointment with our Service Center, or snag a waterproofing kit / materials to DIY at home.
Proper Battery Storage
Due to the electric nature of your Onewheel, it is imperative to maintain a healthy battery. If you don't plan to use your device for an extended period of time, we recommend making sure your board is between 50%-60%, at all times. You don't want to end up with a dead battery in Spring due to the degeneration of cells in the battery. Another piece of advice, is to store your board at room temperature. Never leave your board over exposed to a cold environment for an extended period of time - such as leaving it in the trunk of your car during frigid temperatures.
