Pint does not engage

I know what you mean about the tilt through Nose Down on first start, it is a little embarrassing even when eyes are not on you. I experienced it on the Pint this past weekend after a wheel slip up a curb. When I moved it to flat ground and rocked forward the nose just hit the ground. I agree that I may not have fully waited for the sensor to engage and just hopped on, smashing the front down. The second time I pushed the board back to make sure the motor was active and resisted the movement before tilting forward. No issues the second time....
@LidPhones yeah, i've been trying that, too, and it seems ready to go, but nope... nose bonk twice more often than not.

Those new pro ride traction pads look like they would work better with high arches👍🏽I’m gonna try them once I find out which ones I have to get for the Onetail...with or without kick...
so, just took my Pint out for a couple miles of just low-speed carving practice, and i didn't have any trouble with start-up nose-bonking, but i DID start off very slowly, and watched to make sure the sensors were engaged across both sides. what was interesting to me is that 5-6 times during my session, i got that alert that i was riding above 5mph with one sensor not engaged, like i had my foot off one side or the other — but in looking down at the light bar, i couldn't tell which side was supposed to be the one i wasn't engaging, since the lightbar wasn't on. isn't it supposed to be on all the time? or am i mis-remembering? (guess i need to read my manual again, haha.)
i DID notice that i tend to ride on the ball of my front foot while turning toe-side, which is a habit i have from snowboarding, i guess, so maybe that's it. but having the lights to give me a visual would sure help.

@Franko I get that warning quite a bit, mostly on bumpier off road terrain. I’ve still never had an unexpected nose dive or shut off while riding tho. And mostly, due to the app connection, I don’t notice until I’m done either. I wouldn’t worry about it too much.
I had the nose dive upon start up today a few times. I was practicing that technique for stopping without simple stop, where the wheel does spin out at the end, so I wonder if that could be the trigger?
@a_onekatie yeah, by the third or fourth time i got it i was already starting to ignore it, but it's a new thing that's been happening as of today, so i'm just trying to figure out WHY it's suddenly happening. i'm still using simple stop (and honestly my stops are so inelegant, sigh), so i don't know about the wheel spin out. i will eventually get brave/foolish enough to turn off simple stop, i am sure. (haha)

@ShreddieMcskate are those round pads right in the center line between the sensors?

The first picture is how I used to have my board set up but I ended up putting pro ride traction pads on it and it’s been amazing!! No sensor problems at all👍🏽

Haven’t had this issue on my pint but every now and then I do get a warning that I’m riding over 5mph with one sensor deactivated. Usually during hard carves which I guess should be expected.
The only time I had it not engage is when I came up to a cross walk with traffic and a red light, simple stopped, people were amazed by the fact that onewheel has a one wheel.... and then of course as the crosswalk light turns green.... I get on to go and it doesn’t engage and the nose dips down making me look like a fool lol....

"Mount of shame".
LMAO, Been there done that.
But then I got these little blue "felt pads" for my sensor.
