@OneDan Yeah I figured there could be some element of caution going on. But it just seems like the nose is so close to the ground and I'm only going up a mildly steep hill very slowly.

Onewheel Has Become Slower on Hills
I've noticed a weird issue recently and I'm not sure if it's me imagining things or if something actually happened. I got a Onewheel XR recently (only have 54 miles on it), and one day I noticed that going uphill seemed to be far slower than I had remembered. The board was going what seemed like barely 5 mph and when I'd lean to go faster, the board would start doing some aggressive pushback. That hill was relatively steep, but I've noticed a similar slowness on inclines that are far less steep (ones that I had at least remembered going far faster up before). Because now I feel like if I lean forward anymore I'll scrape the ground.
At first I thought this was a low battery issue so I charged it up for 48 hours because I read that would help fix the battery if something was misbalanced. But that didn't seem to have a change. In general, it just seems like there's speed than I remember and I can't figure out why. I really don't know if this is something that's actually happening or if it's me being more cautious after nosediving before (but I do legitimately feel the hills have become far slower and barely worth trying anymore).
