Onewheel

WinMan Trails is a 501c3 non-profit responsible for building and maintaining our free year-round trail system. We are 100% supported by the generous donations of our users and community.

Please consider donating or becoming a member to support our continued growth and ongoing maintenance so we can continue to deliver an exceptional outdoor trail experience for everyone.

WinMan welcomes the Onewheel community to use our trails.

The majority of our trails are well suited for Onewheels with progressive skills features throughout the property to challenge even the best riders.

We currently offer 23+ miles of trails for you to enjoy.

All trails at WinMan are one-way singletrack which are well mapped and marked. Below you will find our "mountain bike" trail map with all trails open and accessible for use by Onewheels.

Every Fall we also play host to WinMan Midwest Onewheel Enduro. We hope to see you there.

While Onewheels do great on our trails, we do NOT allow Electric Unicycles (EUC). This restriction is for the safety of all our trail users. Thank you for your understanding.

FAQ About Onewheels

1: What trails can they go on? 

Pretty much all of them that most mountain bikers can go on! Onewheelers follow the same trail guidelines and follow the same trail ratings as mountain bikers when it comes to knowing if a trail is up to their skill level. Onewheels can handle most green, blue, and black single diamond trails.

2: Do they damage the trail? 

Nope! Most trail builders welcome and love seeing Onewheels on their trails because it helps with compaction. Onewheels have a wide tire so they don't dig into soft spots, this is especially helpful in the early spring to compact trail after the soft thaw.  Any damage that may occur due to the occasional tire spin or nose dig is often less impactful compared to a mountain bike fall.

Newer models of Onewheels (like the GTS) have improved technologies which keep the boards more level and able to adapt to the varying terrain.

3: How do they work (What powers it, how do they go forward and how do you stop)? 

They are powered by an electric motor and internal battery.  The front pad has a sensor that controls the board with your front foot. To go forward you apply pressure and lean forward. To slow down you lean back and apply pressure to your back foot tilting the nose up.

4: How far can they go? 

There are a few different models of Onewheels so the range varies depending on the board. But, on a mountain bike trail, the range varies from 8-24 miles per charge depending on the terrain, model, and person riding it. On the pavement, they can go 16-34 miles. It takes about 2 hours to recharge a board.

5: How fast can they go? 

Majority of Onewheels used on off-road trails are capable of achieving speeds up to 19 mph (the same as a Class 1 e-MTB). Some newer models can achieve higher speeds but those are rarely, if ever, achieved on off-road trails.

With that being said, the speed Onewheelers go while on a trail depends on the riders skill level, the terrain, trail conditions, and features that come up.  The average speed on a green/blue rated trail for the average skilled Onewheel rider (no matter which model they choose to ride) would ride between 8-16 mph (similar to that of a mountain biker). The winner of the 2023 WinMan Enduro only exceeded 20 mph for moments which is still slower than a high level mountain biker would achieve in a similar situation.
