Deck is an essential part of an electric skateboard, that's why we put significant effort on Ranger X2's deck. It has specially designed curved shape, which fits your feet better and gives your feet extra support when you are riding. And it is super flexible which can greatly reduce vibration when passing poor condition roads, giving you unprecedented comfort, especially suitable for long-distance commuting.
Many of you may be wondering what would it feel to ride a skateboard with such big wheels? The answer is: it's just like your old ones, if not better. Because Ranger X2 is equipped with double kingpin trucks, minimum turning radius is only 2 meters! Together with the 6.5" wheels, you get all-terrain riding experience without sacrificing maneuverability, it still gives you the same if not better carving experience!
As an all-terrain electric skateboard, Ranger X2 has 6.5inch big wheels, however, to get great riding experience, bigger wheels alone is not enough. That's why we give Ranger X2 airless rubber wheels, it has special honeycomb architecture, and it's independently replaceable. Unlike traditional PU tires used on many skateboards, this special rubber tire has improved friction, it also absorbs shocking during riding.
Ranger X2 is a real all-terrain skateboard with water resistant and dust proof mechanism. Major components on the board like the ESC module and the battery modules are covered and protected with special materials, now, you don't need to worry about hurting your board when riding in bad weather.
We have formulated a new test for the electric skateboard: Hub Motors versus a Belt Driven System on Sandy terrain.
To our surprise, the belt motor only ran for a few seconds in the sand, before it died, we found the sand that was cast up by the wheel, lodged in the gap between the belt and the synchronous wheel, causing the system to fail.
So we took apart the drive system to have a look.
You could clearly see that there is a lot of sand on the belt, which makes the whole gearing system not fit well with the belt. The sand in fact caused the belt to detach. We could also see that there is a lot sandstone residue within the gear parts.
In the process of e-boarding in the wild, you will encounter various deposits, such as sand, dirt and water. The fully-sealed structure of the Backfire Ranger X2 will never encounter these problems.
New Backfire Ranger X2 uses 12S 50.4V electronic system, 12S battery, ESC and motors.
Here is why Backfire chooses 12s 50.4V high voltage system as the next general-purpose system.
When energy is conserved, it can be converted into different forms. The electric energy generated by the battery will convert, in part, into heat.
If one can reduce the heat generated by the battery, the saved energy can be used to generate more power, thus more range.
There will also be heat generated by the friction of the motor parts. When the current is reduced, the energy consumption from the battery can be greatly reduced, and, in turn, so will the heat generated by the motor.
This energy saving is in the form of kinetic energy, which supplies the motor. That is to say, by reducing the energy consumption and improving the efficiency of the whole system, the skateboard can achieve more range.
This formula may be familiar: P = UI
Power = Voltage * Current
When the input power remains unchanged, as long as we increase the voltage, we can reduce the current, so as to reduce the heating of the whole system and improve the efficiency. Therefore, the 12S electronic system (voltage is 50.4V when fully charged) is far superior to the 10S electronic system (voltage is 42V when fully charged), which is commonly used in the market.
