Kill switch



  • I've seen in the forum/FB that some users have reported when they dismount the board may engage and spin off. To prevent this and the possible runaway board down a hill have you considered incorporating a kill switch with a magnetic key, similar to what is used on treadmills? I'm envisioning a small magnetic key that attaches to a part of the rail that clips to your leg, and if you fall off it will pull the key off and kill the motor. It should be optional of course for those who intend to jump off their board but for the rest of us this could be really helpful.



  • Not needed under proper usage... If you NEED a kill switch you NEED to get your board fixed. Also the tire will freely roll if it is powered off so down a hill would be more likely for it to get away from you...



  • Also you are introducing another possible point of failure into a system you don't want failing at a bad time.

    Yeah, like if you're riding off-road and the strap of the killswitch catches on a branch while you're moving at top speed.
