Riding in rain...
I can vouch that it works in rain and slush no issues here.
Plus footpads on V1?
Curious if anyone has done this and if so what are your thoughts?
FS: OneWheel+ and V1 SF Bay Area
Interested in one of the two. (Not sure which either.) Live in the South Bay so if you have time, I'd be interested in testing either/both if you are willing and buying on the spot depending on which one I like.
FRANCE OneWheel Riders
Bonsoir à tous,
Nous venons de recevoir les planches et le Onewheel+ est juste incroyable ! Toutes les planches repartent lundi matin aux 4 coins de la France afin de vous voir rider au plus vite :))) Soyez en sûr, cette planche est magique, les sensations sont incomparable !!! Nous détaillerons les différences entre les deux versions très rapidement.
Nous disposons aussi de nombreux accessoires (Bumpers V1, Fender Kit, Support "Wavestand", Footpads V1, Floatplates) qui vont être mis à jour sur notre site onewheelfrance.fr d'ici peu.
En attendant n'hésitez pas à consulter notre page https://www.facebook.com/rideonexperience/ pour toutes informations et des news fraîches ;)

+ wobbles on concrete
I had an ah-ha moment today that might help: Carve.
I ride to-from work in NY and the path can be a lot of little bits of uneven. I get those same wobbles if I try to ride straight. But today I figured out that a little bit of back-and-forth carving gives me more immediate control. Something about actively being engaged in one direction cuts down on those wobbles and it also helps me navigate obstacles better.
+ wobbles on concrete
This is a good insight. Let me explain the physics of the thing that are at play here a little:
If you're going straight, and hit a linear bump head-on, the AOC (Area of Contact) is large, and the entire tire is moving upward all at once, that takes a lot of energy over short period of time (read: "Impact")
If, instead, you are going at an angle to the object, especially if your tire is leaning, then the energy is distributed in two ways - first, the tire has more give, because the AOC is smaller, and the tire can deform easier, as well as the upward motion being done in a gradual fashion, much like walking up a hill at an angle, instead of straight up it.
Generally speaking, carving gives the best ride and if you're cariving lightly it might be more efficient on bumpy surfaces, but isn't the most efficient on smooth level surfaces. Heavy carving involves a lot of extra distance per mile actually travelled, as well as usually being done with a slow-down, speed-up, slow-down repetition, so it'll eat up more battery, without a doubt IMO.
shrug.. YMMV. (literally)
