Parent company or website name I should say is similar, not so much a copy

Onewheel copy cats
Thought I'd start a thread for onewheel copies out there (good and bad).
So far the Moby is the best looking copy I've seen (not in person of course though), but I'll take my Onewheel plus any day to what I've seen so far in copies. The Moby looks like a cheap alternative to take a chance on for those looking to save cash and take a gamble on a new company though.
I love how the parent company is also a copy cat name. FutureMotion vs comingsoon-tech lol. All the best to them though. Competition to drive this new sport and adventure.
RE: Hx Wheel, terrible Onewheel copy
Here's another one... Looks like a better copy, but I still like the overall look and stats of the Onewheel, especially the plus
RE: This is how the nosedive looks
You can clearly see the reason for this nosedive is because his toes came off the board during the heel side carve!
This must have happened to me as well.. I am now so convinced of it after watching slow-mo of this video.
During the carve MUST maintain the pressure on both sides of the pad.
Looks more to me that the bump or crack he hit threw him off... Unless you referenced the wrong video. But I've had the carving related nose dive too, but only on the V1. Never yet on the V2
Santa's gona be working hard this Christmas!
As everyone knows, these onewheels get looks. Loads of looks! I had kids lining up at a social event to check it out, including a retired guy who used to skate hills in Hawaii. When I returned home I told my wife,
"Parents are gona hate me come Christmas!"
"Why?" she asked
"Because when they see the price of the Onewheel they are gona freak!"
But seriously this thing has been worth every penny to me. I love love love my Onewheel. By the time I saved for it the plus came out and I decided to go for the plus. After riding Delirium more and more I'm happy I got the Plus, it fits my style and terrain best I think.
With all the exposure do you all think there will be lots of onewheels and accessories under the tree this year?
RE: Newbie (Real World!) Beginners Manual.
I spent my first several rides in an abandoned church parking lot. I used the painted parking lines like training paths or cones to go around. I would ride all the way down one of the parking rows practicing my turning around the lines. When I got to the end of the row I would dismount. Climb back on the board riding switch with the other foot forward and ride back down the row practicing switch riding and dismounting again at the other end
Basically I recommend becoming comfortable with riding and turning and dismounting in both directions. The board is symmetrical and one should be able to ride it as such. It'll make the board more fun and more safe.
RE: Just posted my first ride with a Danger Warning
I had to go back and re-edit my ride details. It didn't save because I had too many characters. On all my posted rides so far I've also added the expected estimated battery use on the details. I figure it'll be helpful info
RE: The Onewheel Saved My Life!!!
Another interesting thing to think about the one wheel potentially dampening the impact of the accident is the fact you were higher off the ground then if you are walking. Being a little higher up and on less stable ground of the board might have allowed you to be scooped up on to the hood. Being lower and walking maybe you would have been hit harder or even run over
