Youre right, but damn this really blows for me personally. As an investor I feel they should have considered upgrading replaceable parts for all models.
Maybe just pay for an upgrade fee, not a entirely new unit.
24 / M / Austin, Texas
I love board sports. Primary skateboarding / Snowboarding - proud owner of a OW.
Well you can send it in to replace the motor / battery... why not send it in to get it completely upgraded? I think my entire OW + $500 bucks should cover it.
For some people 1.5k is nothing... for others its a serious investment.... They really need to keep their loyal customers happy who had been here. This new wheel looks amazing and I have to miss out :(
So why cant I trade my V1 in towards the cost of a V2?
I feel a bit ripped off, I havent even owned mine for a full year and paid 1.6k for it... then this comes out and im left behind?
I really wish they would take my V1 and give me a V2 for like 300ish extra bucks on top.
It blows in my opinion, i spent 1.6k on mine last year... then a new one comes out thats even better.... i cant afford a second one but I feel like they should let us trade our old ones in for some value towards the new one....
Im actually upset that they havent offered any deals for trade ins.... like a discount or something.... pisses me off.
Ill just get into it, lets post our funnies here!
I pulled my OW from my trunk with my girlfriend and brother and this man who was in running gear looks over at me and says "I haven't seen one of those for about 10 years..."
everyone looks at each other
Me: "Do you travel time? 10 years? You know what this is?"
Him: "Yea, I have seen those about 10 years ago"
Me: "Uh, Im not so sure man, this is pretty new" as I press button to engage board
laughing in background
Him: "My friend used to have one and he used it all the time"
I stand up on the board - staying still
Him: "Yea he was good at it, he could stay up on it for-- Holy shit thats cool what is that?! I thought it was just a balance board!" As I speed away
Laughing in background increases
and if you keep your pressure on the front foot during push back you will bypass "max speed" and continue gaining speed up 22mph according to some users. I have neared that speed myself.
Be super careful when bypassing push back as the nose will dip immediately during that phase and can cause a nose dive.
