Papa Bird's Random Weekly Coolness

Back for another round of 'Weekly Coolness' and this week is all about about interesting and cool modes of transportation. You definitely need to check these out.

OneWheel+ XR

While this one isn't new, it is a huge upgrade on their own model giving a longer range, more power, and greater torque. I haven't used one but much like they say in the video it does look like snowboarding on land. It's used not only for fun but also commuting. They are on the expensive side with a price tag of $1799.00 so better make sure you are going to get the most out of it.


While this one does look like it could be pretty fun I would be worried about the novelty wearing off pretty quickly. Regardless it might be worth a shot. It's essentially just a ski the size of your foot that look like it combines regular skiing and ice skating into a new way down the hill. You never know, maybe it's as fun as they say it is. The obvious positive is how light and small they are, you can bring them anywhere with ease.

This snow bike is so freaking awesome and while it may not be new as it came out in 2016 but I didn't find out about it until this week so it's new to me. I need to try this without a doubt. It really seems like they thought of everything. It's got great shox, seems like it's easy to carve with, and it works with ski lifts (which is genius. Although I wonder if ski hills would ban it from the hill or not). If only I could rent one around here. I guess the only places that are renting in right now are in Europe or overseas but wow does it look like a lot of fun! Check out the video below.
