I’ve noticed the Onewheel community is starting to use ferrofluid in their hub motors and started wondering if anyone’s tried that with eskate hubs. I suspect I’m in the minority in my enjoyment of hub motors on custom boards. The most common ferrofluid product is Statorade. Any thoughts or experience?
This is the first I’m hearing this… got any vids?
I first saw this kid
Then starting looking around and saw that it’s common amongst ebikes that use hub motors. Whether it cools an eskate hub motor wrapped in rubber/PU the same as it would a bike hub motor remains to be seen.
That’s interesting. I haven’t done that myself so it’s new to me.
