@bazzingapunk The more air the "harder" the ground/bumps feel and you will get a little less grip when offroading, especially on loose gravel. Definitely don't be afraid to try different PSI levels to find what works. From my experience 2 psi does actually make a difference! Both in range and feel.
OW'n with a smart watch adds great value (AppleWatch - Nike). The main one being a more heads up approach (forward Looking) with a glance down at the Battery %. Notifications are a real plus to know when to turn around and head back at 50%. I find that I get lost in the ride.....
@ZeeMox overall you're review is pretty spot on. I don't have the plus but have had a v1 for over a year now and some of the gripes and things you like sound similar. One thing I would disagree with you on is the battery life. I wouldn't give up the board over getting 5 miles on a charge. On the v1 I average about 6 miles on the street and 5 off-road but you really arent going to find an electric board that can go much further besides maybe the evolve carbon but even with that board the advertised range is cut more than in half once you take it off road. Once you try a onewheel you can never go back!! Every other electric board you try from now you will compare it to the onewheel and see how awesome it is.
Hence my final score of 8/10. It's got a lot of drawbacks, mostly limitations of technological development beyond FM's control. But it's a board sport, and it's unique because you can't have quite the same experience with anything else. I can see myself having a lot of fun with this, I just wish I didn't have to spend so much of my ride thinking about battery, distance, etc. when I'd really love to just be in the zone tearing it up. I had a great time on some trails today and can only imagine how much better it would have been if I hadn't been mildly stressed out by battery monitoring.
So recently I broke my phone, totaly toast cant be used again. Ive gone withought it for 2ish weeks and ive ridden the OW every day I have my senses for how far I can go pretty much down but one day I had to carry it home 6 miles... that sucked alot. But it was because i was in the zone shredding, you will get stronger by having to carry it home or to your car or whatever. I mean just go until your onewheel cant carry you anymore, get in the zone and dont worry about battery.
6 miles! Man, screw that lol. There's no natural way to carry the thing by hand. Impressive that you pulled that off though, I'd have grabbed an uber after 3 miles lol.
If I wear that with one of my spare backpacking packs while I ride, I can easily carry both it and the onewheel. I've established that I can rely on two full charges from it, possibly a tiny bit more. Fast charging works fine with it. It's hard to tell the exact number of charges because the digital battery % readout on the battery is extremely inaccurate. It hangs out at 100% for way too long and then charges well past 0%. Anyway, for the price, it's the best you're going to get for that capacity. If I hadn't found something like this, I probably would have ended up selling the +, but this gives me enough range to fuck around in the mountains a bit :) And the collapsible backpacking pack gives me a back-friendly means of carrying it back home if I misjudge.
Well when you don't have a phone it's hard to get an uber ;-) but I think of it as good exercise when you have to carry it that long... it may take an hour and a half and you will get a few people asking what happened every 20 mins.
... You could all start slowly and carefull as we early adopters did when we first owned a new and magical device, and think a bit sceptical of the limits this flying thing has, and learn the characeteristics and the 'feel' before cruising full speed until the battery dies. :-)
@JacoNZ - not positive on that but I can tell you the plug that plugs into the wall is a separate wire what plugs into the charger so it makes sense that they would have different styles that could plug in. As with most modern transformers it can take 110-220 50/60Hz.
@thecool32 There is a guy who has a screenshot of 27mph on the v1. The fastest ive gotten on my v1 is 21.6mph on a slight decline though (160lb rider). It's all about slowly but surely pushing through the pushback. The pushback only happens if you try to accelerate too quickly. The easiest way for me is hit 15 normally and then gradually creep up and up and up (like 1mph per 3-5 seconds) with no sudden accelerations.
