I have 2 boards registered to me. I have a Onewheel+ and a Onewheel XR.
I have ridden the OW+ for 9 months with "only" 2 nosedives without push back and my weight is 205 lbs. Very rarely my girlfriend rode it (who was 108 lbs at the time) but she had a pause for a few months. I bought the second XR board so she can ride my OW+ dedicated.
The problem is that the OW+ board does not even start most of the time now when she steps on it (she got lighter 105lbs now), just turns over and hits the ground as if she was air. And when it detects her there is a small chance that the motor turns off while riding (slowly 3-8 mph) thinking she is not on the board anymore leading to serious injury. She tried the brand new XR as well, but even that did not turn on like 1 out of every 4 tries, though it have not turned off while riding so far. (albeit very few tries, understandably she is scared of the product now).
Are the pressure sensors so low quality in the most expensive self balancing board out there that in a few months it cannot detect my lightweight girlfriend properly anymore? Is there a way to software re-calibrate the sensor to her lower weight so that even after this sensor degradation she can ride safely.
The most bizarre thing is that even the brand new XR board had few issues with her weight? The board is advertised many times with children who I assume weigh less than 105 lbs. The specs of the board mention maximum rider weight but not minimum...
The scary thing everyone should consider who is thinking on buying a board is that I have just found out that they have only 6 months of guarantee for the foot pads with the pressure sensors. Future Motions seems to know that they use bad quality pressure sensors and they last exactly 6 months as in my case when it comes to it being able to detect my lighter gf.
