If you could special order a Onewheel...



  • Okay, I'll go first.

    20 mph. Not so I go that fast.
    I just think pushback/nosedive would be avoided at 13-15 mph which is my max speed.
    Then again, you'll have adrenaline junkies who'll be going past that and facing pushback too. lol...

    Ain't no sensor pads. That's right no sensor.
    Cabled switch. Once leveled, you turn it on and go.
    You can clip it in your pants like a keychain.
    Safety feature would be, if you you fall, it'll come unplugged and disengage.
    See, I don't do yoga while riding, so cable won't bother me. :)
    Not a big issue as they seem to have nailed it but there's always a slight chance of sensor malfunction.

    No shaping. Extreme would be standard.
    No use for Classic or Elevated.
    Yes, for a while I rode on elevated and liked it but decided to switch to extreme and leave it there.



  • Hey Sonny123, why the switch form elevated? And I though pushback only happen in classic mode.

    If I could special order a OW, I would be looking for lightness so carbon fiber frame, wheels, titanium axle, bigger wheel but lower profile tire. Of course that small list alone would add more than a grand to the board...

    Well, with the front tilted up constantly, it just feels a bit awkward and uneven.
    Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed it for a while but I'd rather be used to extreme.
    I decided to switch back to extreme when I was plugging along uphill and OW went a bit berserk on me.
    Managed to save it and thought might as well switch back to extreme.

    Pushback happens in every mode, it just happens at a much lower speed in Classic. It's there to let you know you're reaching the max speed that the motor can go, which is a necessity, because if you outrun the motor, SPLAT.



  • Good to know guys, this explains why I get a little squirrelly on longer (but not necessarily steep) down-hills.



  • @Roy that might also happen if you start them near a full charge c;

    I've been thinking about that very thing, over the past few days. I'm about to bust out a drill and my soldering iron and hack one up. lol. Why? I let someone ride my board the second day I got it and he couldn't understand "Don't remove both feet at same time" when hopping off and it would go Zoooom!!! about 12 feet or so, before I could catch it. Lol.

    I think it just would be a good secondary safety measure, personally.



  • @Wrex

    Actually the cable idea ain't that far fetched..
    Very easy to execute and might try it soon.



  • Hmm.. If I could custom order, I'd make it lighter, faster, longer battery life, retractable fender, and integrate 2 small roller wheels on one end for easy portability, side carry handle, integrated lock cable ... and cheaper too.

    A "follow me" mode where it drives itself around behind me like a loyal dog would come in handy too when police make me dismount.

    Heck, let's make it invisible AND glow in the dark too since I'm just making stuff up.

    Although, I have to say after taking my first top-speed flying pavement dismount yesterday, I'm kinda glad it doesn't go faster. I guess I shouldn't ride aggressively while taking micro jet lag naps :)



  • @jeff8v7

    You forgot to mention an air bag.
    When OW is about to launch you, an air bed will spread before you.



  • @sonny123

    Yes! A reusable airbag would be very cool. Add that to my order :)

    I'd also like a companion selfie drone which flys around me and shoots 4K video in lots of cool angles while I'm riding my OW. At the end of the day, it automatically makes a video recap of my ride - intermixing time lapse for the boring stuff, slow mo for unexpected dismounts & tricks (in case I actually learn a trick in the future), and regular speed for pushback edge riding. The sound track loops together all the "whoa!" "Cool!" "What is that?" "Did you make that?" comments from the day, and ride stats & running score is shown in the corner which rates my ride.
