How do FANGS™ work?

FANGS™ reduce the friction of the nose on the ground, so when your Onewheel's front bumper meets pavement, it won't stop instantly and throw you off from the sudden deceleration. FANGS™ give you a precious few seconds to either jump off your board in a controlled manner, or possibly regain control and keep riding. They are meant for low to mid-speed nosedive mitigation ( <= 16mph), although skilled riders have ridden out much higher speeds (over 23mph). Proven to be effective by many riders, FANGS™ are now considered standard equipment for new board owners.

Like any performance product for Onewheel, using FANGS™ is a learned skill that takes practice to use correctly. Just as you don't expect to be an expert on your first day with your Onewheel, FANGS™ work best when you've experimented with them on your own for a while.

FANGS™ are especially great at helping go up steep inclines, because in this case when a nosedive occurs, the board is already very close to touching the nose down (due to the incline). Therefore the "fall" of the nose to ground is much shorter and much easier to control than on flat ground.

And it's fun to do things you can't do without nose wheels. Like Fang Drag starts!  Which are pretty much impossible without some sort of nose wheels.

FANGS™ are an experimental product, and no guarantees are offered in terms of saving a rider from all nosedives. However, they have been proven to work time and again by many riders. The stories are all over the Facebook user groups. The only way to prevent nosedives is to not accelerate too hard for a given speed – thus, no product can "prevent" a nosedive. Gradual speed increases will result in less nosedive events, as will riding at moderate speeds.

Fang you

Got the fangs so I wouldn’t get fanged up when the nose dropped. Works well
On concrete but dirt would need a much larger impractical diameter wheel. Not to mention. Streets near but sorts cheap…it doesn’t hurt as much on the dirt.

Put them to use at low speed

I put the FANGS 2.1 to use on my XR with in the first week of riding. My issues where hill climbs at slow speeds not a big deal but to my 53 year old arse aint jumping off shet in a hurry. I opted for the 2.1 as opposed to the 3.0 becasue I wanted the versititliy of being able to remove them easier if I choose too. Why remove them you ask, curb nudges are the only trick I really want to learn for sanity sake more than anything and not sure if the fangs are going to be a a hinderance or not.
