First nosedive in delerium???

  • @cameroni79 said in First nosedive in delerium???:

    I had a full board shut off in delirium at 19-20 mph. I have a collapsed lung and a separated shoulder. I've been in the hospital since Thursday.

    That's some serious damage, hope you're able to recover from this. What were the conditions leading up to your nosedive?

  • @skyman88 riding on a flat, paved road. Board shut down with zero warning.

  • @cameroni79 So if your OW+ had a wheel (like an inline skate wheel) mounted on the front bumper, would your situation have improved your chances of a less serious injury? Would the OW still have thrown you if the front wheel would just roll out? I am thinking of adapting one of my spare bumpers in this manner.

  • @gadgetrider that's a really good question. It was flat with firm resistance against my front foot. It just instantly cut all power and balance light a light switch. Potentially some small wheels up front would have made it less violent.

  • I had one nosedive on pavement so far from accelerating too fast. I was able to stay on it for a second or 2 with the front skidding on the road. Scrubbed just enough speed I was barely able to run it out. I think I just got lucky tho LOL

  • @cameroni79 prayers heading your way, hope you recover soon, my crash wasn't nearly as bad as yours get well soon!

  • @cameroni79 wondering what protective gear your were wearing, not that anything that you could've been wearing woulda changed how significant your injuries were except maybe a couple cuts and scrapes that I'm sure you have.

  • @offroadow thanks man I appreciate it.

    Hey Cam

    I just had a full board shut down with delirium as well. Cruising at about 22mph, next thing I know I was laying in the street after hitting my head on the concrete. Luckily my helmet saved me, it took a real beating. I felt no heavy push back and the road was smooth with no bumps. Scraped up my arms, knees and bruises on side and thighs. It definitely shook me up, I know how you feel. How are you recovering? Have you got your confidence to ride again?

  • @sabernat I never have felt any pushback in delerium. According to the manual once you hit the top speed of the carving mode the front end of the board will raise up and slow you down. That absolutely doesn't happen. As far as the shut down, it happens so quickly that you would have to be a super human to react. Yesterday was two weeks since my fall. The ortho said my shoulder will never recover. There's some surgery, but he didn't recommend it. I have to get my lung xrayed again on the 20th. I'm still bleeding from where the chest tube was put in. No, I can't ride. I am only allowed to go for walks. Since it's the only exercise I'm capable of I've been doing 6-8 miles a day of walking. It's something at least.

  • @sabernat I had full board shutdown with no pushback, pulsing...NOTHING whatsoever at 20.8 mph.
    Yes, you're at your own risk when exceeding the 'max speed' but how is one supposed to know when you've hit this number? I dont want to stare at my phone checking the speedo while flying down the road, I'm certainly bound to wreck doing that.

    I'm having a hard time finding the will to get back on my OW knowing that out might just stop************ at any given time...ughhh.

    Just keep riding faster and faster until you nosedive, then dial it back a bit.

  • @sabernat @daarnold82

    I have definitely had pushback in Delirium but again, it's been at much lower speeds. I think once your past ~15 mph there isn't much pushback left for the board to deliver.

    What about an exercise... switch back into the slowest shaping mode and work your way back up to Delirium. You should feel the push back happen at a higher speed in each shaping mode... maybe that would help you guys know what to be looking for?

    BUT be warned, in Cruz, pushback is very very aggressive and early. Use some caution for each mode and work up to pushback. I did something early on to make sure what I thought was pushback in Mission really was.

  • @skyman88 pushback is very obvious in sequoia and Cruz. If there's pushback in delirium it's so subtle that it might as well not exist.

    First things first, I'm glad your shoulder is healing w/o surgery.

    While I may not be able change your opinion on Delirium, I am trying to help you guys. Have you driven on flat ground in a straight line in Delirium to test for pushback?

  • @thegreck Lol, thats apparently what Im good at. You should see the hematoma on my hip. Looks like a autumn scene painting of trees paired with an orange-sized blood blister hanging off my hip. OUCH

  • @daarnold82 If you're not already a member of the Onewheel Crash Group on FB, you should join and post a photo. It's where people go to see gnarly wounds people have suffered while riding their Onewheel:

    I posted a photo of what happened to my arm when I got hit by a car, and it beats most people's photos in terms of disgusting gore... but I'd rather not have a photo to show, that's for sure.

  • @skyman88 yep. I was flat terrain riding when I took my nosedive. Shoulder will hea to a point, but the damage is permanent. My lung was at about 80% capacity when they released me from the hospital. Hopefully I'll see a higher number on the 20th at my next X-ray.

  • @thegreck Any chance of making that Facebook group public? I don't know who runs it, so I'm replying to you. I don't have a Facebook account, but I would like to browse around that group.

  • @florider the group must be closed, otherwise it would get flooded with spam.
