It has a learning curve just like most PEVs. If you saw my early One Wheel videos I fell, a lot, and most of the time it was coming to a stop when it happened. The stock XR/Plus tire is much flatter so it actually is more stable, learning on a Pint to me would be tougher from a beginner standpoint because it is definitely more twitchy due to the tire profile. Make sure you are in the beginner mode which speed limits and also makes the side to side motion a little less severe. I strongly encourage you to work through the frustration, it will be worth it. The OW riding experience to me, is more engaging and fun.
