Pushback



  • I would love to hear some feedback from more experienced riders. I'm less than a 100 miles but trying to rack them up fast. In Delerium I get pushback at 15-16mph, which I think is what should happen. If top speed advertised is 19-20 do I need to push through the initial pushback and it will happen again at top speed or is that just risking a crash for a few more mph. I don't want to learn the limits with a nose dive.
    I do wear full pads so probably 200lbs geared up and 6'3" so that's a lot of torque on the motor I would think. Mainly just having fun carving turns and cruising around, but was thinking about this today.
    Thanks in advance

    That 15-16 mph pushback is the one and only. Passed that speed your ability to balance on the board (keep your weight centered over the wheel) becomes more important.

    Also see really good explanations of the different types of pushback and nose dives... here:

    Thanks. I'll keep it at first pushback. I would think they would advertise that as top speed for safety sake.



  • @sage954 if you dig around on here or Facebook a lot of folks feel the same. Some people with great balance cruise all day at 23 mph so the board has a chance but it is rider dependent... along with weight, wind, tire pressure, terrain, etc...
