+ Pushback at 16.

  • @1chris are you sure the board is in mission mode? What you describe is exactly how it feels if I ride in cruz

  • Yeah they really need to do something about this pushback so early when the advertised speed is 19.

  • I'm still not convinced that it's a wide spread issue.. I've had my plus for 3 months and have over 500+ miles and it still rides the same with push back only occuring around 17-18mph(mission) and it's not as aggressive as the V1 push back.. barely noticeable and very easy to push thru.

  • 15.5 mph my board is pushing back heavy i want it to be like 18 or so like the others that have it that way ..... what should i do send it back :(

  • This is weird, also have no issues with pushback on the plus until well into the late teens

  • @GlueBreath Are you accelerating straight or are you hittting these speeds while carving? I noticed sometimes I can pass 16 without feeling pushback if I carve but if I just go straight and accelerate the pushback at 16 is pretty pronounced.

  • Pushback is just the board slightly outrunning the rider, so basic acceleration can a lot of times feel like pushback. Especially since the plus has a more powerful motor and accelerating too quickly can easily make the board outrun you.

  • @s2kboy I think I know what your talking about as far as straight lines vs. carving.. I definitely carve whenever possible especially at faster speeds as I feel more stable when I do.. it's very well possible I'm pushing right thru push back while carving without realizing it.. I feel a gentle lift after 16mph going in straight line but it's definitely not agressive or uncomfortable as some have stated.. I don't try and push the speed every ride anyways as for me 14-16mph is the optimal cruising speed while still being able to maintain control and react fast if needed so I guess I don't notice as much.. but hitting 18mph without struggling or nose diving should be possible in mission on the plus.. maintaining that speed and beyond is questionable tho.

  • Future motion just sent me this after I asked about it......

    I have confirmed with our engineers that pushback with always begin to kick in around 15 MPH and increase in aggressiveness as you approach top speed. All board's run the same firmware and an update will not change when pushback begins to occur. If you feel that your board rides with its nose unusually high a video (if safe to do so) showing the ride angle would be very helpful for us to confirm if anything appears to be out of the norm.

    All the best,

  • Okay after I mustered some courage to push the board past 16 I gotta say I now routinely hit 19-20 on the board without little effort... Maintaining that speed however is another story... I've felt the board have a "hiccup" or like run out of me slightly before I catch it right at 21. No falls yet!
