GT activation Pad how does it work?
With a concave board how do you kill the power when you come to a stop? Easier or harder to dismount?
that's a good question. i got my xr rigged so i have to jump off to stop anyways (or do a quickstop), so that would always be an option for the gt.
I have ElectricBigfoot concave pads over my front sensor, and dismounts work the same. You lift your heel. I accept that it may be more difficult for a newer rider, but I have personally never noticed a difference.
Looking at the GT concave, it looks to be about the same as the EB concave pads, so I imagine things will be similar. I suppose I will find out "in a few months."
As a side note - you all have probably seen this Jeff's DIY old method, right?
With this V1 sensor usage the activating surface is only flat spot in the middle. Gotta make sure your sole has a good contact there.
Now for GT all-around-concave front footpad - That's a good question indeed. FM's presentation slipped over it way too fast. Looking forward of someone dismantling it into pieces any time soon. Just to show.
I'd like to think of it as some advanced tech. solution. Where sensor layers are somehow strictly against griptape. Not as some rubber/neoprene extra layer in between to resolve differences in shape.
I dunno. I can ride a onewheel in an AND footpad configuration anymore. OR is where it's at. Otherwise it just turns off on you when you do any sort of spin or trick.
@Swinefeaster lol, we know. Good for you. :]
Where FM is probably supposed to aim for is to prevent "unwanted ghost riding" and stuff to happen. Since ppl with random experience can't handle powerful GT as confident straight away. Which is their concern in terms of safety.
@Sirgu hahaha peace
