Hey i mamaged to destroy one of the hub motors on a halo board and wondered if anybody know where i can order a replacement
They have a fairly responsive customer service that will be able to take good care fo you. Just visit their website bud.
One hub and they want $500 as they refuse to replace just one- and they’re saying the control board needs replacement.
The Halo board is fun to ride, but if you break any of it past a year expect to have to buy another.
Bastards wouldn’t replace my one hub. F Halo, imo.
Halo board is a shitty reseller of a shitty board. You can replace their hubs/esc for $200 total or better yet get a VESC and belt drive for about $230.
Do you have a link? I replaced the bad hub with one of the front wheels and slapped my city-board wheels on to get it back on the road.
The acceleration is much slower as the torque is halved, but it’ll still get up to 22mph. (I’m 165# wet).
Bah! I just ordered a Nazare. I need more speed anyway.
Halo’s a good starter board and it’ll last maybe year if you like riding as much as I do. Halo service will not send you parts- you have to send them back your board to get retail repairs and you can’t just get the parts anywhere and do it yourself, as far as I know.
If anyone knows where I can grab these parts.
What size hubs are those? Comfortable 97mm hubs @ $200 https://www.backfireboards.com/collections/all/products/350w-hub-motors-with-hub-wheels-and-caliber-truck-with-off-set-wheels?variant=15634227363889
(You can find cheaper hubs, but for the extra urethane i’d reccomend the backfire ones)
Thanks so much for the info and link!; I’ll be sure to swap both out as soon as I pay off this $3500($3200 now) debt I just made.
Hey, if you want i have some rear trucks wit hub motors to sell, those are another “european” brand but this is the same chinese factory that build thoses
