Just got my onewheel+ today and we are all having a tough time dismounting. Is it fine to ride with your back foot on the power pad? It feels way more natural to lift your heel on your back foot. Lifting front foot is hard!
Try pushing your knee forward to cause your foot to rotate onto you toes rather than "lifting". See if that helps.
Otherwise, practice makes perfect. Can also rotate you foot 90 degrees so your heel is on the sensor and your toes are hanging off the front of the board.
A place to discuss technical questions and answers
@thetwilightsown Yeah I have posted about my experiences with this type of no pushback nosedives when i first got the board quite a bit. I assume this is relatively new board?
Below is the text from another post of mine about this....
*So I had trouble with extreme complete nose dives where you hit the ground before you even realize what is happening kind. Here is copy from another thread describing my early experience with my OneWheel +
"When I first got my Plus, there was a noticeable little click noise I used to hear coming from the motor while riding. Also I never felt any pushback in the beginning when I could hear this noise. I had a few nose dives and never felt any pushback prior. Then I put it in Sequoia mode as I was determined to feel this "pushback" that people had referenced and hadn't felt on my OW. Initially, I didn't feel anything in Sequoia either and suddenly out of no where pushback started. I had been going the same speeds prior in the same modes but never felt the pushback. I am convinced that riding hard in Sequoia finally adjusted something in the motor that was out of align preventing pushback. I switched it to Mission after this and suddenly started feeling pushback there too. Since this day, I have not noticed the little click I used to hear coming from the motor, and I have not had any nose dives like I had the first few weeks I had it. I have had nosedives, but they seem much less severe like the motor was still trying to hold me up versus just complete stop and dump off the front nosedives. Again i know nothing about the internals of the OneWheel so this theory could be completely wrong. Initially, I thought it was user error(as I am sure many of you do / still do), but now that I have 500+ miles, I feel that there was something slightly out of whack when I first got my plus."
Has your buddy noticed pushback on his plus in any of the modes? I'm curious if he tried to force pushback in Sequoia if it would then start pushing back in Mission as it did for me.
Good luck to him as not feeling pushback and then nosedives that come with it are no fun to the point where I considered giving up the OneWheel due to unpredictable face plant nosedives that were quite unsettling.*
Now my Plus works as expected, but I was considering sending mine back at first too. Good luck
@keithers please keep us posted on your first impressions! Hopefully you don't experience any of those nosedives that everybody's talking about !
Super fun! Already an minor injury to the gf though. She scraped up her foot/ankle trying to dismount. She always injures herself so that pretty standard lol.
That's definitely the hardest part (dismounting). Does anyone know if it's ok ride with your back foot on the "gas pedal" side? That would be riding "backwards". It seriously feels a million percent more natural to lift the heel of your back foot when trying to stop, then to lift the heel of your front foot.
Can we please make this a feature. I will be moving to a new spot on top of a hill and would really find it cumbersome to manually manage the charge level each day before my commute. Otherwise Id have to walk it down the hill each day. This could definitely be an easy app update now with a simple alert and eventually have a auto charge shut off in the future.
Looks like your connection to Onewheel Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
