The Kush Wide Concave Foot Pad for Onewheel™, developed by The Float Life, is everything you love about the original Kush foot pads, but with a wider surface area and kick to completely lock in riders with feet of all sizes, but especially designed for those with larger feet. The Kush Wide Concave Foot Pad enhances the Onewheel by replacing the existing rear foot pad with a soft concave foot pad for extreme comfort and control.

The Kush Wide Concave Foot Pad is only designed to replace the rear stock foot pad of the Onewheel, not the front stock foot pad.
The Kush Wide Pad for Onewheel is poured from an 80A durometer urethane which establishes a softness similar to a soft skateboard wheel.
Perfect Concave Blend:
The Float Life took the base of the Kush Hi and hit it with a fresh overhaul to satisfy the cravings of those with bigger feet. The Kush Wide features a progressive concave that locks your foot for gnarly trails while still have a nice sole hugging platform for those long 20+ mile expeditions and late night curb sessions. The Float Life added a center well platform to mellow out the valley dip and add arch support for a cramp free ride. The Float Life also dipped a sweet little lock-in pocket into the rear kick tail for those of you ride rear foot completely back. The kick tail was reworked to add a steeper lip without extending to a super high wing off the back which brings a more uniform visual aesthetic to your Onewheel. As a final touch, the edges are rounded over at a fat bevel so the edges are extremely comfortable regardless of your shoe size.
The urethane will never chip, crack, break, or snap, guaranteed. The underside bumper nut inserts were poured directly into the mold so they will never spin out on you. The Float Life also added an extra screw attachment point to the top of the foot pad to reduce thread stripping due to shear stress on rear-end crashes.
Upgraded Grip Tape:
Every Kush Wide Pad comes with a special cut TFL Grip Tape pre-applied. The Float Life also include an extra sheet of regular cut TFL Grip Tape so you can match your front foot pad with your rear Kush Wide Pad.
The Kush Wide Pad is available in 4 colors! You can choose from Black, Blue, Red, and Orange.

I had high expectations after the reviews on here and from what I'd heard elsewhere on the internet. To be honest, I believe there has been a lot of hype for a product that isn't really fit for purpose straight out of the box, assuming you want to use it for trail riding.
The problem is that the material used is very soft/pliable, which although being great for micro-bump absorption, results in the front edge (nearest the tyre) lifting slightly - the edge is a bit 'floppy' and doesn’t hold tight against the battery box. This allows trail debris (sand/mud/very small stones) to accumulate between the underside of the pad and the top of the battery box, which is quite frankly unsafe as it could lead to damage to the battery box lid. The more that debris accumulates, the more that the debris widens the gap which exacerbates the issue. They should have incorporated a stiff plate into the pad along the front edge nearest the tyre (clamped down by the 2 top screws nearest the tyre) to prevent it from lifting. I didn't have this issue with the stock pad (no where near to the same degree anyway) because the plywood of the stock pad is obviously stiff and non-pliable. The design as it stands is flawed.
To overcome the problem, I have used a bead of silicon sealant along the front edge to prevent anything else getting trapped under the pad. You shouldn't have to do this with a brand new product straight out of the box! Or if you do, it should be written into the instructions that this is a necessary step during installation. The issue described above probably wouldn't be much of a problem if you ride street, but the Kush Wide is marketed as a trail footpad!
The top mounting holes on the pad are also not reinforced in any way which means that the small diameter head of the countersunk screws are braced against the soft material, which I'm sure is a point of future failure. They should have put a reinforced plate at each fixing location to prevent this.
Also, for trail riding, I would have liked a slightly more aggressive concave to the pad to allow you to put more energy into turns on more technical terrain - I feel it is a bit lacklustre.
Within the first 30 miles, a small chunk of grip tape had already torn off and the grip tape is starting to part from the footpad in another part of the pad. This has never happened to me with Craft and Ride grip tape.
It took 1 good long trail ride to discover the issues above, which is frustrating and makes me question why there haven't been design revisions by The Float Life to put it right? Why was it released as is, in the first place? It's very frustrating to spend hard earned cash on a product that is lacking!
I'm kicking myself for not going for the Craft and Ride Airpad now - on looking into this pad, it seems like the guys at C&R have designed out all of the issues with the Kush and come up with a far superior design. Reinforced metal plate moulded into the base, lip to prevent dirt ingress, better quality grip tape....etc etc
Apart from the disappointing product, C&R service was spot on as usual!
Kush Wide Concave Foot Pad for Onewheel™
Definitely helps with foot fatigue and I needed to get used to where my foot placement would be after changing from stock XR pad. No issues with the grip tape.
One negative about the kush wide is that it leaves a small gap when screwed in, even after making sure the screws aren't that tight. Not C&Rs fault as they did not make the pad and appears that C&R do make a pad (air pad) which resolves this type of issue. I ended up buying some foam seal tape (used for windows) to line the sides before screwing on the pad.
Purchased during the memorial day sale and C&R delivered the pad with minimal delay. I also traded my old footpad in to get more than half back for future purchases. Overall happy with purchasing from C&R and will continue to do so!!
Love this footpad. Worth every penny! Thank you C&R!
I ride old school Skate Boards and love the concave. I ordered this high Kush and followed the directions. I rolled the grip tape and took off on an asphalt trail ride.
Less than 3 miles and the grip tape was peeled up and dust from my ride kept it from sticking again ! It's just way to soft.
I suggest the wooden concaved rear footpad instead of the High Kush !
Super comfy for wide big shoes.
Awsome service and the wide pads from kush are where it at!!
