@thegreck I do agree that I need to ride one. I get what you are saying about using your legs instead of leaning, but it always looks like you have to really push down to get any response? What I dont understand is that if the acceleration is good why does the nose ever get close to the ground?
"Small question on the side; Why are we talking about power-sliding? I mean you can do that on a onewheel, but the main problem is grip. Unless riding slippery surfaces, you have too much grip to slide."
Change the tire and the board and you could get the perfect balance.
I think people are misunderstanding where I am coming from. This version of the one wheel is a very well designed product. No doubt about that. I am sure there are some flaws, but in all it is very well thought out and designed.
I am coming from the point of view that this type of human wheel interaction is the most natural that has been invented. IMO everything should be looked into and tested to try and get the absolute best ride possible from this type of vehicle... And while this version was a extremely good first version... I am sure there is a ton that can be done to improve it.
