Push Back

Push Back

Like everything in life, Onewheel Pint has its limits. If at any time you attempt to go too fast, descend a very steep hill or ride with a low battery, your Onewheel Pint will “push back.” In a push back situation, the nose of the board will lift to let the rider know to slow down.ALWAYS LEAN BACK TO SLOW DOWN WHEN PUSH BACK OCCURS. NEVER LEAN FORWARD INTO PUSH BACK. Failing to heed push back by leaning back to slow down may result in loss of control, serious injury or death.

WARNING: Ignoring safety warnings, including push back, may result in loss of control, serious injury or death.

Full-Battery Push Back

When the battery is fully charged and you continue to charge it through regenerative braking (e.g., traveling downhill), you may experience “Full-Battery Push Back.” This is to prevent overcharging the battery cells. If this happens, simply switch your Pint OFF and ON again, and travel up the hill for a few moments to expend some of the charge. You will now be able to continue riding downhill.

WARNING: Never attempt to ride down a long or steep hill with a freshly charged Onewheel Pint. Loss of control or damage to your Onewheel Pint may occur.

Low-Battery Push Back

When your Onewheel Pint battery is extremely low, it will perform a much more aggressive push back and will become inoperative. This means a full battery charge is needed. When low-battery push back occurs, stop your Onewheel Pint and charge it.

WARNING: Continuing to ride when low-battery push back occurs may result in sudden shutdown or damage to your Onewheel Pint.

SPEED PUSH BACK

When your Onewheel Pint is reaching its limits, push back will occur. When that happens, lean your weight back to decrease your speed. Never lean forward into push back as you may push your Onewheel Pint beyond its limits, which could cause you to lose control, fall from your board and sustain serious injuries or death.

WARNING: Ignoring safety warnings, including push back, may result in loss of control, serious injury or death.
