THEY ALL LIKE BOUNDMOTORfrom 178 reviews
I have purchased this wheels kit (175mm) for a skateboard that I am building and everything arrived well packaged and in good order. Good bearings too. Bearing diameter should be checked if you are planning to use axles of different diameters. Good value for money!
So had a few decent rides in the D3 now and feel can comment. Like everyone says the dual trucks take a little to get used to but even loose the board is really stable at speed. I can sit on about 45kmph on the flat if needed it feels a little quick without more safety gear on. Cars get a surprise when they look to their left and you are still right next to them. The wheels are awesome I was on a hub board before and soo much smoother. It pretty much has coped with all but a few hills in Auckland and can easily do a 30km return loop not sure on total range yet as haven’t hit it. Cato (Bound Support) very helpful with information as delivery took a little longer - consisting Exway could even get a board to New Zealand and cancelled order costing me about $40 bucks in exchange fluctuation I’m fine with that. It’s a heave board and large but you can tow it on two wheels fine but most of the time you are on it right. It is a big battery so understandable. The top centre tape came off pretty quick that was just the logo so didn’t worry me too much. I am a sure I could have re glued it down. You do have to be aware of the motors as they are lower to ground so can knock them a little.
after riding for a few weeks and vigorously testing does drives i came to a conclusion that they are RIDICULOUSLY FUN.
i am using these on my DIY with the 120d cloud wheels for maximum clearance they are EXTREMLY GOOD getting around 45 km/h using a 10s4p samsung 25r cells. getting up to speed very quickly and booming up hills with ease.
With an easy installation process these are truly a MUST HAVE drives for your esk8!
Really happy with the performance so far! No issues, no sag, and incredible range! I still haven’t been able to do a range test but The battery bar barely even moves after 15 km of high speed riding. Crazy! Had a small hiccup with the charger but was totally my fault, a simple small switch to flick at the back. boundmotor responded quickly to rescue me 🙏🙏🙏 I think they have new model chargers now though.
I’m super happy with these. After finally plugging everything together and tinkering around, by far such a step from traditional hub motors. You need big wheels though. Well especially where I am in Montreal. I threw on the cloudwheels and still unfortunately have caught a few nicks here and there on the cans but honestly most the time avoidable. The cans feel pretty heavy duty though I think you’d need quite an impact to ruin these. I can’t get over how quiet these run too. Soo stealth! The look it gives to the board with the wide wheel base is sick and the turning radius of the double kingpins is such a bonus when riding around town. They do add like 4 inches to your board length though and are quite high. In honour I built an entire unique board for these babies! Also before riding I checked all the screws and decided to add a some loctite just to be sure, I felt it was necessary when loosing some of the screws. But the performance has been flawless so far. Braking is really smooth too!
After a month of use i think i can tell anything about it:
First of all: im a longboard rider but this is my first electric one, i decided to start with an all terrain one because the streets usually are not very smooth and i though this could allow me ride with more trust. And i was right , i can go to the sidewalk when the traffic is to messy , go back to the street or the bike lane in case there is...
I must confess that i though this longboard would be a bit smaller in general , and not that heavy , but im not a small (90 Kg ) guy neither so i though the titan should be the best choice. This board is stealthy and i love it so much. I choose the huge battery and i still dint go so much long to notice that im running out of battery . The top speed is more than i will never need ... im still using the lowest gear of the 3 options i have and i cant even push "the pedal down" not even going uphill ... this thing is powerfull
I must say i dont like so much the double kingpin trucks because it seems like it make you more likely to suffer the damn speed woobles when you push too much on the pedal but when you need to turn in not so much space this is what you need. The future must be something like a truck that goes smoother or more rigid depending on the speed or able to config with a button 🙂
PD: btw the after sale service seems to be really nice in case you have any issue or question about the board
I've owned 4 boards thus far and this thing is the best. It accelerates with authority and stops without being jerky. Rubber wheels on a board this powerful are a must.
Buying these wheels was a bit of a risk as they are for my Meepo mini 2 ER.
Luckily there is no wheel bite, the wheels are super smooth and carvy, they absorb all the bumps and cracks - pretty much anything, 100x better than normal street wheels.
I haven’t tried cloud wheels but after trying these I don’t think I will as they are a lot cheaper and can’t imagine them being any better.
Boundmotor’s provided a great service I received shipping updates every other day and they only took 5 days from Hong Kong to London, UK - with the addition of tracking info ie showing the DHL van dropping off the packages before mine.
I would highly recommend these to anyone that’s thinking of purchasing them!
I am impressed with how smooth the system works.
It’s so quiet and powerful with 42 volt power. Braking nice and smooth.
I am glad that made the purchase of this Vesc 6.0 firmware Version:5.1.
High quality, smooth operation on accelerate and braking.
The only thing I wish for is display for statuses on the board that would be complete system and I wouldn't buy anything else.
I like it a lot so I've just made a second VESC 6.0/5.1 for my next belt drive board.
The airless wheels eat up any gravel and bumps on the road.
Very enjoyable to ride!!
The power and torque from the 2 DD are outstanding but very smooth.
The board carves like it was on rails!!
Thanks BOUNDMOTOR ;-))
The shipping was within a week from Hong Kong to Belgium. Being with Dhl you cannot avoid customs. The wheels are on the heavy side but now I feel more confident on Wet tarmac sand I use roads they I would have avoided with the abec refly ( light gravels) a good product. Do not forget to increase your pulley tooth count to account for the less efficient braking (loss of torque)
I spent countless hours online to find the best electric skateboard, my main reason to buy this board was that it has direct-drive motor, cool design and good price.
With this, I have the freedom to choose any type of wheels. The motors are strong with low noise, no maintenance required. The wheels are large and they give a comfortable ride. Last time I went 16km with it and the battery was still half full. I am very satisfied.
I use this board almost everyday, it's quite different with my old hubmotor electric skate,totally next level experience for me,thank you guys,and your customer service guy is really helpful,I will get my next order when you have new model out!!!
I ride these wheels on my evolve board & they are now hands down my favourite wheel to ride & carve hard on. I've even used them at the skatepark bowl & they hold their own! Check me out on instagram - "sookiela88" to see their performance at the skatepark...
