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.

They help

They’ve saved me many times at low speeds, I did have my first serious nosedive last weekend and fractured my shoulder blade, at those speeds fangs can’t do much for you, but they’re a must either way..

Easy Install

Very easy to install and look good on the board. Hopefully they will give me a little margin for error should a nosedive occur! They are still too expensive for what they are. But, so are all aftermarket parts for OneWheels!

I shouldn’t have bought them. I couldn’t get them to stay on and lost a wheel . They look cool though but I still probably would eat shit even with those wheels
