reports of broken bones and torn ligaments are "Data", not fearmongering. Your testimonial supports the assertion that the board (design or manufacturing) has a bug / failure mode. Can you re-create the ND experience at will?

RE: Couple reports of + and XR shutting off mid ride at slow speeds and bricking
its great that you're not falling on your face, @readysetawesome . This tends to indicate that OW have a failure mode in "some" of their boards (read "a lot" of their boards, based on the customer feedback), given how different the experiences are.
RE: Another nosedive question
Great topic. Science/Diagnostic Data preferred - please include. My experience is that Nosedive is a Failure Mode (hey, FM!) -- NOT a Feature. My experience includes 1 ND on 2nd 7mi trip of brand new XR:
After a day of shredding dirt single-track and cruising pavement, ND1:
10% uphill grade, straight/flat smooth pavement
100F motor temp
No warning, NO pushback (plenty of pushback on the ride, NOT at ND)
My main reason believing this is FM (Failure Mode) and NOT a feature, is that no warning is given . After working with EV systems for 17 years, I can assure you, that any system capable of protecting itself (feature) is capable of providing a signal of that imminent protection. Such protection (cutout) NEVER need be instantaneous, but may be "ramped", give warning, and reported. OW does none of these.
FM (Future Motion) could potentially convince me that this is a feature IF:
it were proven repeatable/reproducible on demand
it were advertised as a feature in print in the manual / webpage
it had mitigation / warning (ramp, audible - alarm)
it were reported to the APP that protection feature (EJECTION) was activated.
But as far as I can tell , FM is 'mums the word' (please link their statement, if I've missed it).
