I've powered up after getting the low battery pushback and was able to ride only a short bit before it did the pushback again. Did this a couple times but I'm sure it's not good for the battery so I don't do it anymore. Never just shut down on me though.
Haven't tried the kite, but I have plenty of hours on a wakeboard. Reading your question I realised that most of the time when people ask me about how riding the OW feels like I refer to snowboarding or wakeboarding on a glassy lake, you know, when you just hear the "sssssss" sound as you go. That's the feeling I get from doing large turns in highspeed with OW.
btw. I'm also waiting for my board, put in the order yesterday, so with that 8 week backlog they have, it's going to be a looooong couple of months.. fortunately a friend got his board a month back so whenever we hang out I can feed my addiction with a full battery of riding.
I just wanna say I think the onewheel is a classic!
Oh yea.. we're in Helsinki Finland so anyone else up in here with a board, it'd be cool to share some spots and practice some tricks together.
Hey Jase, it's all about a balance of maneuverability and stability. We wanted a tire that was flat enough to allow riders to balance while idle (makes learning much easier and really important while waiting at stop lights, ect.) while still having enough profile for carving. The Vega tires were the best we tested!
Also zuerst einmal habe ich mir die Boards während einer Dienstreise nach USA ins Hotel liefern lassen, um Zeit und Geld zu sparen. Habe es dann selbst bei der Einreise in DE normal verzollt.
Ich bin sehr zufrieden mit der Qualität und habe extrem viel Spaß damit. Vor allem im Gelände. Der Vergleich mit dem Snowboard ist meiner Meinung nach nicht passend. Man ist sehr viel schneller auf dem SB. Und man kann mit dem OW nicht driften. Am ehesten noch in tiefem Sand. Das ist auch cool, geht aber nur Berg ab, weil das Rad sonst durchdreht.
Insgesamt ist das Board eine absolute Kaufempfehlung!
Absolutely with you. Nothing is better than smooth grass with long hills in my mind. Feels exactly Ike riding down the line and I'm way more comfortable than on the streets. I am cruising to the beach this weekend and I'll try and get some video to share.
