Overlean safeguard wheels


Recommended Posts

I just stumbled over the LTX hoverboard which is similar to the Onewheel

For one wheeled self-balancing skateboards it seems that an overlean crash is more common and more problematic than with EUCs. Even a small forward tilt gets the tip of the wheel dangerously close to the street. It seems that two passive wheels placed on the tip of the board would prevent the immediate rollover when the tip touches the asphalt. In contrast to EUCs, overlean preventing wheels should be more effective on skateboard style hoverboards, because riders have one leg in front with which they can push and lean on to prevent being thrown off.
