The Platypus - one of the oddest animals nature has ever conceived. A mammal that lays eggs, has a duck-billed snout, and webbed feet, it's a wacky genetic mixup that defies categorization.

We love this unique creature, and it’s the duck-billed snout that gave the inspiration for the name “Platypus™”.

There is no doubt that the Platypus™ wide concave footpad is as unique as the Australian mammal, for there hasn’t ever been a footpad like this before. A footpad that feels instantly comfortable, and can help reduce foot fatigue on long rides. A footpad that feels as good on road as off, and will last forever due to it's urethane construction. This patent-pending design features a unique shape with underside support ribs designed to offer stable footing and ultimate durability. 

Most riders don’t know that simply adding concavity to a to a standard-width footpad has the effect of making it feel narrower. And for people with larger feet, that isn’t so desirable. 

By making the footpad ½” wider than the rails, and adding a progressive concavity that starts shallow near the wheel and grows wider towards the tail (here’s the Platypus duck-bill feature), the rider benefits greatly by having a very wide platform while maintaining a locked-in feeling from the gentle concavity. The feel of control is fantastic and the platform for your feet feels wide and stable. A very subtle middle “hump” gives the foot a bit of arch support and helps lock in the back foot when using FlightFins™.   In other words, its a very subtle "W"-shaped concave platform for your feet!  The new Onewheel GT copies this middle hump that we’ve had on our footpad for two years!

The Platypus™ itself is made of polyurethane – unbreakable, shock and vibration absorbing, and tough as nails. But unlike some other "flappin' in the breeze" thin and weak cushy pads out there, this one has great toughness and keeps it's shape.

Another innovation are the screw anchors at the very end of the footpad. Made from stainless steel or high-strength aluminum, these are not weak “inserts” as all other pads use. These anchors are nearly 1” wide metal plates (and around 5-6mm thick) that will never rust and never pull out of the footpad (check out the underside pics below for details). No other footpad on the market can match it.

Each Platy™ also includes a set of 6 stainless steel, black-oxide screws…a standard for all Land-Surf products that prevents rust and corrosion from mucking up your rail threads.

NOTE: The various colors are meant to match the stock bumpers from Future Motion as well as the Fangs 3 bumpers sold here on this site!

For grip tape options, we have Jessup® Roam® (a grippy longboard tape that doesn’t cut the skin), or the new amazing Badger Grip (made by fellows in the Onewheel community)!

Each Platypus™ comes with two laser-cut grip tapes – one for the Platypus™, and another cut for a stock XR/Plus wood footpad, so that your grip matches!

Once you've tried the Platypus, it's hard to go back to anything else. Many riders start off with a Kush Low / High or Kush Wide, or a Viper pad, or an Airpad, only later to switch to the Platypus. There just isn't anything that compares with the natural comfort and durability, as well as control, that the Platy offers. 

Made for full-size Onewheels®, but fits anything that isn't a Pint® (ie, McNugget or Growler are compatible), and compatible with nearly all fenders and FlightFins™.

Includes a free silicone XLR plug (when in stock)!

Love this pad

I love taking long rides on my JWXR. I run to 0 when I can. So a footpad that keeps my legs going good is important. I've tried several different pads and prefer this one. It gives me the best comfort for endurance rides. I use it for both of my pads, just not with platysense. But recommend this as a dual set up for sure. Try platysense first. If that doesn't work I recommend doing a double v1 sensor. This pad is the only one im planning to use going forward for both front and back.

Must have!!

This is a must have if u have big feet (14us) and are a bigger rider. I am in love. Now the waiting game starts for the front footpad to open for international shipments
