V1 may better for newbs..



  • Just thought of this as I was riding the +
    V1 may be better for newbies.
    The pushback feature at around 11-13 mph is a great way to protect you until you're well familiar and comfortable with it.
    Once you're able to push past pushback and stay balanced,
    you'll find the + a world of difference.
    I'm yet to go over 15 mph on the + and probably won't anytime soon.

    12-15 is a perfect cruising speed with no annoying pushback.



  • V1 is better for hardcore riders who want to:

    • go really fast (on the plus this is sketchy as hell)

    • ride rough terrain (on plus the tail drags with minimal wheel slip)

    • have more low end torque (can't push the plus around as playfully - some think this feels too wobbly and would prefer plus which drives like a cruise ship)

    But if you don't want to push the speed and prefer more stability, plus seems like the way to go.

    I think that's what does it for me and the majority of riders.
    I'm always amazed by the fact I'm riding on a single wheel with an ultra smooth ride.
    There's always gonna be the Fabuz's and Slydogstrohs who'll defy the law of physics.



  • @sonny123 Don't forget @jeffmccosker

    Respect.



  • Hold the phone - just saw a video of some fast and fun plus riding by @slydogstroh - so it definitely is possible and I may have to eat my words. The plus appears to clearly kick the v1s butt. Time to pad up and figure out this beast

    Agree. Granted I don't have mine yet... but I have pretty slow and realistic plans for use. Looking for that zen like beach cruise... maybe someday I'll want to split lanes in Boston... but I doubt it. The ability to walk pain free into work every day is still a priority.
