I had the same issue, it is not a speed problem, it is a basic OW technical malfunction. From all the stories I suspect the sensors to be the source of the nosedives...

RE: Thrown off after nosedive with no pushback warning (nose dive, nose-dive)
I was thrown 1 month 1/2 ago. It was in a classic mode, trying to cross a small pavement, I was not going really fast. I was on concrete so I just dislocated my elbow... I am still recovering. Does anyone have a solution for this ? From what I read, there is no safe mode, and it is NOT a speed issue.
RE: FRANCE OneWheel Riders
Salut tout le monde ! J'ai ma board depuis 2 mois et demi, mais je me suis explosé le coude avec il y a 1 mois et demi :-/
Si quelqu'un veut la tester on peut s'arranger, je ne sais pas vraiment si je veux déjà la revendre ça me fait mal au coeur...
Je suis à Paris, si quelqu'un veut organiser une session un de ces 4, qu'il n'hésite pas à me joindre ;-)
Accident wiith the OneWheel - Dislocated elbow...
I am not here to scare you !
I received my OW 2 months ago. I practiced for 3 weeks with no big problems. I had a lot of fun and I improved really quickly on the board. I did not spend a lot of time on the forum but I already saw a similar story to mine so I would ike to warn users and the manufacturer....
I was in the street 1 month ago, going quite slowly and I wanted to cross the pavement. The curb was quite low (edge of the pavement). I accelerated a bit, not so much, in order to climb the obstacle. I crossed it without too much problems BUT once on the other side of the pavement, the board unexpectedly brutally stopped. I was "thrown" by the board, so I fell, and I tried to catch up on the ground with my right wrist. That was so brutal that it dislocated my right elbow... (I had protections but I did not break any bones, just moved my elbow)
So the point of the story is :
How come the board stops so brutally in this case ? Can we do something particular ? Is there any expected update at the moment ?
I have seen other people having the same kind of troubles when the board is too inclined towards the front or the back...
Enjoy your board guys but take care and do it safely !
