Rear sensor optionally enabled



  • The fact that mistakenly taking my foot off the rear of the board pretty much guarantees I will be forced into the splits is not exactly a comforting thought.

    I know that some people don't want the rear sensor so they can do tricks(?) but I'd like one for safety reasons.

    Couldn't the next version of the board have sensors which are optionally enabled? I'm never going to do tricks, and I'd like the board to stop if my rear foot leaves the board rather than taking off.

    Thanks



  • That would be a horrible feature.... Then we would have twice as many people in here complaining about nosedives. If your not doing tricks why is your rear foot coming off anyway?



  • @kohesion I'm confused... rear sensor? There are only two sensors, and they're both on the front footpad (assuming you're riding it properly). The board will put you into splits if you take your foot off the back footpad, though, if your front remains on the front sensors.

    Just don't do that.



  • Yeah, my work friend stepped off the back of my board and now he needs surgery for torn ligaments.
    Stepping off is a natural reaction to losing ones balance.

    Other people in the onewheel accidents Facebook group have had same experience where their foot slipped off the back and the board made them do the splits.

    I'm wondering why we couldn't have a new sensor on the back of the board that is optionally enabled.

    Sounds like a cost and weight increase for everyone.

    I've let a dozen or so people try my board... grass always and we practice the jump off with both feet thing first. No splits to date.



  • Sorry but it make me laugh !.....
