Grinding noice when riding Onewheel

Some (almost every) Onewheel out there makes a short grinding noice when you start to accelerate. For as far as we know this is completely normal and is called the governor of the Onewheel.

If the sound persists or keeps on grinding if you go faster than 4-5 kilometers per hour there is something stuck in the wheel area and you should let this get checked out. There is no way for big rocks or debris to get into the motor as long as you’ve taken good care of the machine.
