Hey Everyone, Doug here from Momentum Boards. No not the one that is a pedo and sells 3D printed skateboards and robs people of their money. But a different one - www.momentum-boards.com.
With a 500 FPS Slow Mo camera, I created a video of my new Hollow Wheel against popular street wheels - Cloud, TB 110s, Boosted 105, ABEC 107 - hitting huge pot holes. Take a look at how they all compare. Take a look at the feet to get a sense of how comfortable each wheel is as they hit a pot hole at 16ish mph: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdMgsfaJH8w
For the past 2 years, I have been developing and testing a really comfortable ESK8 wheel that has low rolling resistance, insane grip, and insane comfort. Lots of you really helped me go in the right direction @b264 @mmaner just to name a few. I really appreciate it. I’ve been using a lot of my local ESK8 community to beta test and I have about 50 beta testers to date.
I designed 3D printed molds so I could rapidly iterate and cast urethane into. At the peak, I was doing a mold change per week to get the most comfort and grip out of the wheel without sacrificing range too much. The result is a wheel that is as comfortable (or more comfortable) as a 120mm Cloud Wheel but is as light (284g) as a Orangutang Caguama and grips like a sportbike.
How is it different? It also has an adjustable suspension insert so you can fine-tune your ride to exactly how you like it - comfort, grip, and rolling resistance. It is also completely hollow to dampen vibrations and fit the adjustable suspension inserts.
Here is more information about the wheel that I compiled into my website. We are also in pre-order campaign to move production from my apartment with 3D printed molds to a plastic injection molding factory: https://momentum-boards.com/products/one
Thanks so much and please let me know if you have any questions at all. I have had a ton of positive reviews from members inside the community that I will share in a little bit. Thanks so much to this community for helping me. This was a really fun design project for me.
