To gain a safer ride many people, including myself, uses front wheels on their boards. This is to be able to handle and control the device in case of a nosedive. The wheels reduce the friction of the nose when hitting the ground, instead of launching you forward it will slide give you time to react, recover from the nosedive or jump off.
There are four companies supplying front wheels for the Onewheel Pint, Land-surf with the Fangs v2, SonnyWheels with the Silder, CarbonSmith with the V2 Carbonshield bumper and Tooth-Products with SabreTooth Jr.
Deciding on the correct front wheel for the job comes down to, security, style and price. For me it came down to sleek design and price, making me buy the Land-Surf Fangs V2. Here you can find more information about my installation and comments.
The most secure front wheels for Onewheel Pint.
Undoubtedly the most secure front wheels are the Sliders from SonnyWheels. The bigger wheels will have greater clearance than both the Fangs and Carbonshield bumpers. The drawback is the bigger wheels and esthetics impact. The Fangs v2 are the bumper with the lowest clearance to the ground.
If you want to do what people referes to nosedrags I higly recommend you go for the Sliders. Sonny is well know in the community and a great guy.
The Sabertooth Jr is a great alternative, smaller wheels but still good clerance. The wheels are more centered on the board making them a bit more unstable for nosedrags.
