Thank you for your interest in the Glider!
At this time, we are no longer making the 3D printed Glider v2.0.
However, we are diligently working on a streamlined redesign for the next version of the Glider, which will be injection molded. We’re calling it the Glider Core.
To receive updates regarding the redesign progress, pre-orders, and the official release date, you can sign up for the Glider Core mailing list below. Thank you for your support and patience as we work to bring the Glider Core to life!
As always, if you have any questions or concerns, feel free to shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Tired of lugging around your OneWheel?
Using your Onewheel to commute around town sounds like a great idea until you realize that you will have to lift and carry the 27 lb board around once you reach your destination. The Glider allows you to simply grab a fold-out handle and roll your Onewheel like a piece of luggage when riding is no longer an option.
Concerned about your Onewheel nosediving?
The Onewheel is an amazing piece of technology, with a concerning flaw. If you push it just a little too far, the front catches on the ground, instantaneously bringing you from 19 mph (30 kph) to 0 mph.... Ouch! However, when your Onewheel has the Glider's wheels facing forward, the wheels catch the ground and not your board, saving your skin, bones, and pride!
The Glider does all this by simply replacing your current Onewheel bumpers.
What’s the difference between the Shorty Handle and the Extra Long Handle?
With our standard handle, known as the Shorty Handle, your Glider bumpers are interchangeable and can be installed on either side of the board, allowing you to utilize the product features that you value most. You can install the handle on the back and wheels on the front if you don’t like to ride backwards. OR, you can install the handle on the front and wheels on the back (and ride backwards) if you want the freestanding feature. If you’ve already purchased a Full Bumper Glider with the original handle and are interested in a Shorty Handle, shoot us an email at email@example.com with your name and original order number, and we’ll provide you with a link for a Shorty Handle customer loyalty discount!
Our alternative handle, known as the Extra Long Handle, adds an extra inch to the handle’s length, making it easier to use for riders over six feet tall. However, because of its length and the space limitations on the battery side, it only fits the front side of the board and the wheels must be installed on the back, which means the rider needs to ride backwards in order to keep the wheels facing forward. With the Extra Long Handle, you will always benefit from the freestanding feature because the wheels are automatically installed on the heavy battery side.
Extra Long Handle
The longer handle can accommodate riders over six feet tall.
The handle is installed on the lighter side of the board, making it feel lighter while rolling.
The Onewheel can freestand with the wheels installed on the heavy battery side of the board.
The handle can only be installed on the front. If installed on the back, it will not lock into place and the rider will risk breaking it.
The wheels have to be installed on the back.
The rider has to ride backwards to utilize the Glider’s benefits.
The wheels can be installed on the front of the board. No need to ride backwards!
The freestanding feature can be accomplished by installing the wheels on the heavy battery side.
The bumpers are interchangeable, allowing you to use them however you choose.
The handle is shorter and may not work for riders over six feet tall.
If you choose to install the wheels on the front, you will lose the freestanding feature.
The board may feel heavier while rolling if the handle is installed on the heavy battery side of the board.
What can the Glider do for you?
With the extending handle on one side and the smooth gliding wheels on the other, the Glider makes transporting your Onewheel a breeze.
With the Glider, you will experience a more confident and safer ride. No longer will you be concerned about the front of the board nosediving the ground and catapulting you off of it.
Seamless integration was a design goal from the start, so attaching the Glider is as easy as changing the standard Onewheel bumpers.
We use the latest in additive manufacturing technology to provide our design team with full control over every millimeter of the Glider's development. These recent enhancements in 3D printing have empowered us to deliver a final product with an unprecedented strength and finish.
The Glider allows the Onewheel to temporarily stand up vertically on its wheeled side. Note: To accomplish the freestanding feature, the wheels must be installed on the heavy battery side (back) of the board.
The last thing you want is for the handle to drag and catch while cruising. You can ride with confidence knowing that the Glider's handle is securely stored when not in use.
