This board I just finished up and tested features some custom artwork that was sent to me by the customer. That’s something i would like to start doing more of and I’m trying to figure out a way to make it easier on myself. I suspect the route I’ll go is by using that clear shelf covering stuff and a desktop die cutter like the Silhouette, but for now its all tape and razor magic on black and white line art printouts.
This board has plenty of startup power despite the 15/36 ratio on 100mm wheels. But that kind of rolling leverage on the pulleys makes the brakes a little squishy so that had to be tweaked but i think we’ve got it good for now.
This is a dual rear drive with 190KV R-SPECs, a 15/36 ratio, typical enertion/caliber drive setup, custom colors on the mounts, risers, and deck, glass grip on the surface, custom paint on the box and some crazy asian symbols that mean Warrior God along with a gaming clan logo.
I’m really growing to love these commuter crossovers. They’re basically the perfect all around commuter vehicle.
Obligatory esk8 porn:
those are my test wheels in the pic on the finished board. As you can see, i’m starting to wear them out a little, gradually turning them into street slicks.
This board was recently filmed as part of an episode of Power& that is about me and my builds and at some point in early 2017 3 to 5 million viewers will see this board accelerating quickly up a ~20% hill near my neighborhood. It was actually peeling out a little as i shifted my weight to brace for the acceleration during the shoot. There may even be some shots of the TRON board i built, but mostly i was riding the crazy black and yellow board i built for shop testing. I’ll post a link to that as soon as I have one to share. Hopefully it won’t be geo-locked to aggressively.
