@sdaiberl totally agreee pushback should be accompanied by some loud sound so if pushback fails due to weight/speed/tilt/physics at least you get the audible warning. Had a bad nosedive crash under 15mph with no pushback.

RE: Better Nosedive Warning
+1 for an audible warning please - maybe adjustable via app.
I’ve put a few hundred street and trail miles on mine and thought I knew how to ride but just recently had my first nosedive going down a mild hill maybe 12mph 30% battery and it just launched me off onto asphalt without any pushback warning. I’ve gotten pushback before around 16mph but not even sure - maybe drop a notification on pushback so I know for sure it’s been triggered to learn what it feels like.
I guess leaning too far forward could have done it but didn’t seem like I was and there was no pushback warning - paranoid of this reoccurring as it was a painful crash gonna take months to really recover.
Afraid such a warning feature basically involves having testers try to crash maybe need an articulating crash dummy on a dynamo.
When to replace the plastic bumper plates?
Hello! I am a new to the Onewheel and have been having so much fun I have scratched the plastic plates up quite a bit. How do I know when the plastic needs to be replaced? (Attaching a photo.)
I was thinking about adding armor to the plates but worried less clearance will make it less fun to ride.
Although the amount of fun is currently maximum high so maybe I can cope with slightly less fun.
