Future Motion has recalled all models of the Onewheel Self-Balancing Electric Skateboard due to a crash hazard.

Four people died of severe head trauma after crashing their Onewheel skateboard between 2019 and 2021, according to safety officials.

Future Motion also received dozens of reports of people who suffered serious injuries, including traumatic brain injury, concussion, paralysis, upper-body fractures, lower-body fractures and ligament damage.

Safety officials are warning consumers to immediately stop using the recalled Onewheel electric skateboards.

Future Motion is offering a free software update, which will add a “Haptic Buzz” alert. This will produce an audible and tactile buzz when the board is nearing its limits, low on battery, or in an error state.
