THEY ALL LIKE BOUNDMOTORfrom 42 reviews
To start with Boundmotor has had excellent pre sale to post delivery. The D1 is a beautiful board shipped well protected.
I have never written double kingdom trucks before but these things are loose. I have tightened them up a full turn on the top nut but the board is still a equivalent to my old Brad Gerlach Carveboard. I’ll keep tightening.
The Honeycomb wheels are great. They weight about 1.2lbs each but they really smooth out the bumps.
The remote has a few things I will have to get used to. Double click the power button and it goes into reverse. I have done this accidentally twice. The speed selector is a single click and goes from low to high not the next speed up. My wife was going up a hill in low and accidentally pressed the button. The board took of and she fell off the back. I am thinking of putting some 50mil tape with cut outs for the buttons to build it up and make it harder to get to the buttons.
Weight. The board is a little over 24lbs. 4lbs. More than the website. I questioned Cato their rep about this and he apologized saying 9.8Kg was a misprint. It is however the approximate weight without the wheels.
Power. I am a cautious rider and I have only used it in the slow speed thus far. Slow is about about equivalent to a 1000watt board. I’ve heard of people upping the amps in the VESC but I think they must be adrenaline junkies this thing is plenty fast as is for a fun day of carving up the streets.
I have 3 other all terrain electric boards:
1.) evolve carbon gtr
2.) backfire ranger x2
3.) raldey carbon AT
And the bound motor titan is tied for my favorite with the backfire ranger x2.
- The wheels - I never thought a airless tire could feel as smooth as a pneumatic but boundmotor has proven me wrong. These tires are better and more comfy under foot than the raldey and the backfire.
- Nice carving ability
- Has a reverse mode
- deck is nice. Not too stiff but not to flexible either
- nice top speed
- much better brakes than the raldey and evolve
- the charger - this thing is awesome. It has a fan that cools it down and just seems like it’s built to last
- a bit heavy at 33 lbs. but the reverse mode makes that easier to deal with
- trucks - they aren’t bad trucks, but I think there’s room for improvement.
Overall, it’s a great board!
I’m going to get tighter bushings for it and I wish the remote had a screen and finger hole like the backfire remote.
This deck is HUGE and very comfortable for long rides and bumpy roads. The only issue I’ve encountered is with the battery case. The decks isn’t completely stiff so when I first stepped on the board I heard some nasty cracking sounds. I messed with the screws so the the sound is a lot less apparent, but for the price that you pay for these boards, the cracking issue needs to be fixed.
quality is good, but I needed to pay extra for delivery service (I thought its free shipping?)
Bottom line: these are the most comfortable "skate-size" wheels I've found. Even better than Cags or foamies. Downside is you can feel they aren't as efficient. Will probably wear faster, but bad roads are tolerable now. Good roads just float. Took a month to get to SF. Boundmotor was very good with communications, responsive and over-communicating where the wheels were in the process, which is very appreciated.
These are nicely made parts - CNC milled. Looks much better than plastic ones. Like.
I'm a small, custom builder. I struggle to find unique parts that are both aesthetically unique and highly functional. As the line between the small pneumatic tires and large polyurethane gets tighter, Boundmotor has built something really cool. The ride is decidedly softer than traditional wheels, quiet on the street and pulls vibration from the feet. Plus it rolls almost silently.,
I love the way they look too. I think they more than pay for themselves in additional price. Great product. Fast service! I'll be back!
Very solid product. The perfect fit w/ a selection of different attachment types.
For a long time now I wanted an electric skateboard but most streets where I live are too rugged to skate in regular skateboard or longboard wheels. That problem left me with very limited places to use any skateboard therefore it was not worth it to buy an e-skate. When I saw these type of wheels I thought they could work out and decided to buy the Mini Kooper as my first electric skateboard.
Since I have never even ridden an e-skate before I was filled with doubts and questions. Contrary to some competitors BOUND MOTOR was the only one who answered my emails with some questions and helped me out during the buying process via chat.
I am most definitely satisfied with my purchase. I ride it anywhere and don't have to worry about the terrain. You can seamlessly transfer from a sidewalk to a street and go through some grass patches with no worries. The small size and the kicktail were the reasons I selected the Mini Kooper over longboard models. With the kicktail in some situations I find it easier to turn so it's a benefit and the small size pays off once you get off the board and have to carry it.
Shipping was fast.
Price is awesome.
PS. I had to order me a second one because mine got confiscated already by my kid.
I think the pics speak for themselfes. By far the smoothest motors I ever had.
Had this board for a couple of weeks. It is pretty much everything it claims. The carbon-fibre deck is stiff but the ride is smooth and comfortable - due to the rubber wheels. I'd been hanging out for a direct-drive board but that isn't the strongest aspect of this board - that's it's size! Things to note are the slightly wider trucks and slightly longer deck. This deck would be just great for the bigger rider. It can take the weight and I think they'd enjoy the large deck and wide trucks. I'm not tall but have big feet and weigh plenty. The longer, wider deck took a bit of getting used to but now I really like it. I like the fact that I can go over more stuff than I can with PU wheels. The deck can clearly take even bigger wheels and BoundMotor are bringing out some airless ones. I might try some pneumatic tyres on it - that reminds me - If you are going to try other wheels, I suggest you buy the other drive gear when you buy the board - and avoid the extra shipping charges.
My order arrived quickly and with no issues. I was updated on the status throughout the process and the box even included some masks to help me stay safe during the spread of the virus. Will certainly order again!
First off, the shipping was impressive. My motors shipped on a monday and were delivered THAT friday! I haven't been able to run them yet because I ordered the wrong adapters, but I will update in a week or so when I recieved the correct ones. I plugged them in and wow they sound like pure power! Thanks boundmotor for the great product, and exceptional service.
One of my Kegel drive hubs for my DD kit broke but BoundMotors made it right. The DDs have been awesome otherwise.
Very impressed with the wheels and the quality of the customer service. Came out my transaction very satisfied
Got the wheels and didn’t fit the gen 3 boosted board I have which is the stealth. I was able to get into contact with them and my representative did an outstanding job at making the customer happy. Already installed the wheels on my front but couldn’t with the back, but from what I can see it’s a quality product. Definitely doing business with them again, thanks boundmotor. 🙂
Seems well made. I'm probably going to upgrade a meepo mini v2 with it. Is there a schematic to hook this motor and sensor wires up to meepos standard esc
The offroad wheels with the vesc have alot of torque. I love burning past cars downtown Toronto. Big time saver for me.
Very fast shipping only took 4 days to U.S!!! Looks and feels solid and looks good quality. The remote feels good in hand with rubberized coating and good quality. Very happy customer, have not programmed VESC yet.
Shipping was very fast to the U.S and looks to be great quality. Thank you.
Great torque an great speed all around really good wheels.
Looks like a quality design and works great with vesc tool
these motors are crazy powerful that im scared lol. we love it! so much better than the Meepo hub motor. glad we bought this DD to upgrade the Meepo board. easily plugs into the Meepo controller. unfortunately the hall sensor wires do not fit into the Meepo old controller.
A Great set of wheels just as they are shown prompt delivery Well Done
Haven't used it yet, but based on what I can see, it Is great quality. Its updated with the motor can set screw to prevent loosening. And also came with a free pack of 608rs bearings. BTW, these trucks sit very high and need a deck that is drop through or drop deck. And the deck shouldn't have any arch aka camber to it or else it will sit very high up like one of the photos I posted
Product looks like good quality. Very quick shipping to California. Thanks.
The front wheels are just great. They are large, have tyre-like rubber, runs well on gravel, a bit weighty. I'm pretty sure the rim is made of aluminum.
The board is worth it for the price it goes really fast and alot of power
Best customer service ever.
As for the ride, pros are... smooth ride.
Acceleration is great too! Smooth braking and they look sweet.
Very fast shipping Good quality of wheels, 4 PCs, thank you. I will buy it again.
These have greatly enhanced my enjoyment of riding over the rough terrain that I face in my traffic. In both dry and wet conditions, improved traction gives me more confidence and I find them more comfortable than regular urethane wheels.
The rubber tires are truly a game changer, on mixed terrain the ride is smooth and I felt safer that on usual PU wheels. First time I went over grass, gravel and cobblestone i had a huge surprised smile on my face. Absolutely recommended if you have have to commute in cities where the pavement is not always concrete!
Rides smooth and fast - I love it...
Haven’t ridden them yet but based on their communication these should be great. Had s problem with delivery and the kept me updated the whole time. Great customer service!
This thing is amazing!!! Handles up hill like a boss! Much faster than I thought and the breaking system is flipping awesome! I highly recommend buying this board! Soooo worth the money!!
