The Design

Galaxy G2s is Different

BACKFIRE is company that really cares about products, not only features, but also design and details. Every details of the product is carefully designed and manufactured, to make it a unique and special. You can easily tell the difference between a BACKFIRE skateboard and one from other companies.

Super Flexible Deck

Galaxy G2s' Deck is made of 8 layers of Hard Rock Maple. This make it flexible yet solid, forged into slightly curved shape, it absorbs most of the shocking during riding. And with the specially designed concave surface, the board provides great support to your feet when you are riding and turning.

Caliber II 50-DEGREE Truck

With the world-famous Caliber II truck as the front truck, Galaxy G2s now gives you extraordinary carving experience and improved stability in high speed riding. The rear truck is also specially crafted, it is surprisingly sturdy, no risk of breaking.

Low Center of Gravity Design

Inspired by sport cars, Galaxy G2s is designed to have a low center of gravity(110mm with 80mm wheels), this provides extra stability, especially during high speed riding, even at the of 38km/h, the board is still very stable. Now high speed riding is easy and comfortable.

* Galaxy G2s also provides four 96mm wheels for FREE, you can use them if you need to ride on rocky roads.

The Power System

Advanced Battery Technology

Galaxy G2s has built-in advanced BMS(Battery Management System), even when battery is fully charged, you can still do a high speed hard braking, without worrying about the huge reverse current from the motors. Every battery cell is carefully fixed and arranged to prevent shocking damage during high speed riding. The battery can continuously output 40A current, gives your board stable and powerful energy.

New Controllers Module

The motor controller and drive system have been upgraded. With a brand new architecture and new Drive circuits, Galaxy G2s now has a much smoother and linear acceleration and braking performance. The new controller module also has water and dust resistance, making the board more durable and reliable.

Unique Hub Motors

Galaxy G2s is equipped with 2 specially customized In-Hub motors, to have a lower center of gravity, it is designed to be thinner but longer. The motor and the tires are independently replaceable, this gives you more choice of tires, and also radically reduced maintenance cost(you can replace the tires without changing motors). The motor is compatible with both 80mm wheels and 96mm wheels, if you need more torque and faster acceleration or if you do drifting or sliding a lot, choose the smaller 80mm tires, if you want comfortable riding on rocky roads, use the 96mm wheels, they are provided for FREE.
