PLATYSENSE GT 4.0 Footpads - NEW!

Land-Surf, LLC.

The PlatySense™ - There's nothing else quite like it. Loved by riders all over the world for it's unique, organic shape and ergonomic feel, the Platy is available for XR and GT boards. It's the single best improvement you can make in ride quality. Ride farther with less foot fatigue, and get ultimate heal and toe control of your board!

The Platypus™ GT material is the same UHMW plastic of the Fangs GT bumper, and it's unbreakable, lightweight, and tough as nails. Combined, the two Platy GT footpads are nearly 10oz lighter than stock, and nearly half the weight of a single Kush Wide pad!  That's serious weight savings!

Please note that from the time you order it will be around 1 week before your pad is shipped. Each set is custom made once ordered.

The PlatySense is a single-zone sensor. This makes mounting more reliable (since both zones appear to the Onewheel to be activated) and slow speed cutouts are avoided. When you're riding, the pad is like stock. To dismount, simply lift your heel from the front edge, or jump off, or do a stop stomp or skid stomp. 


PlatySense™ orders can now be configured with an optional 1/2 second delay until motor cut. It's a simple, reliable solution that uses solid state electronics (no microprocessor that can lock up or fail) to give a very slight delay before the board is deactivated - this helps out immensely in everyday riding as well as trails (curb drops, bonks, rough terrain - these are all places where the delay feature shines!)  It's similar to the delay feature on a Surestart Pro, but better in our view -  because it's 100% reliable. This PlatySense-exclusive delay feature is available at no extra charge.

More experienced riders may remember that the original Platysense™ released last year innovated with a timed delay to motor cutoff, but that was done using a microprocessor, like the SureStart does now.)

Often imitated, but never duplicated, the Platypus is the original wide pad, which spawned a rash of copies. Nothing compares to the original!

Footpad shaping is an art like surfboard shaping, and the preference for each rider is very personal…the Platypus footpads are comprised of soft curves and organic flowing shapes that give a more ergonomic feel under foot.  No sharp edges or corners are present.  Instead, the Platypus comprises a smooth surface that feels great even when riding barefoot.

The feel under-foot is immediately noticeable, and the very small arch support (middle hump) is almost invisible (maybe 2mm higher than the surrounding areas), but it can certainly be felt by your foot or hand.

The PlatySense™ works with all aftermarket rails too!  Anywhere the stock pad fits, the Platypus GT will also.

PlatySense™ kits are sold ONLY as a pair of footpads (front and rear). 

The color options match the stock bumpers from Future Motion as well as the Fangs™ GT and BASH bumpers sold here on this site.

For grip tape options, we have PlatyGrip (medium grit, size #30) and PlatyGrip+ (extreme grit, size #20).

Platypus™ with PlatySense™ units are hand-made once ordered and are available only in limited quantities. Once your order is in, you will be placed in the queue for production. We can only make a certain amount per day, and will try to fill orders as fast as possible. 

The PlatySense™ system is non-returnable because it is a made-on-demand custom item of your specific color choice and grip tape.  Free exchanges or repairs will be made for any verified defective units.

2 thumbs up

Perfect fit for my 11.5 size shoes. Very first ride on these was a 24 mile rip around the city on the Onewheel Philly group ride. Zero foot fatigue, and zero false starts. Also I just discovered shuv its are way easier with the 1/2 second delay 🤙

Lee Perry (Pittsford, US)

They’re dope for sure. Literally, zero arch pain whatsoever. Legs get tired at the same rate but no pain in the feets which is a huge improvement. I also had a problem w the sensor upon delivery, but Matt fixed it asap and it’s easy to message him on FB

Really good

First, it’s really satisfying to ride the same pads on each foot. So it feels amazing, more like a snowboard feeling. The width and feel of the pads is enormous, even though they don’t look that big, the difference is huge. It is a little more tricky to dismount. Topical heal raise doesn’t work the same way, you have to almost completely remove your toe too! Going over bumps is a breez and I imagine will only get better due to the half sec delay. No strange sound and recalibrating. So that’s nice. I would definitely recommend these and am glad for the purchase.

Mixed feelings

My foot pain while riding distance is gone now that I've switched to these, but I consistently have difficulty dismounting with the single sensor. I'm not really sure what the benefit of that type of sensor is. Hopefully it gets easier with time.

Zach (Langhorne, US)
Huge improvement over stock!

I have size 15 shoes and these pads made my ride immediately and immensely more comfortable! No issues with engagement whatsoever! Great product.

Platypus rocks!

I didn’t like idea about posi pads so they made dual zone pads for me. 100% happy.
