best .98c I ever spent in my entire life. Big chew bubble gum take a seat!
so I just got this hub motors with the deck. so a few days ago one of my hub motors stopped working so I got it off the mount because it won't spin. I need my board to get to work and back thats y I ordered new motors because my old one hub motors had to many miles on it. I have 60 to see if I can get another motor
My board was shipped and delivered to my door in 9 days. I live in Ontario, Canada. Had a small issue with import fee. Backfire quickly solved my issue. Excellent service from Backfire Boards USA.
My 14 year old son loves this board!
Bought the galaxy board when it first came out, it’s been flawless for years and miles. Just upgraded, and it’s even better!
Davey, portland, oregon
excellent product and fast shipping
Super fast shipping on replacement belts for minimum down time.
Great board, great fun! Remote works great, love the different modes and responsive braking. Easily climbs hills. Will get lots of use this summer and Fall riding across campus to classes.
got here on time
Got my extra bearings within a week! Thanks for the speedy shipping
Route is pretty dope. Track everything!
It's ok my opinion is it's not needed
On one hand, I'd like to say the Route Protection is worth it, for, if for whatever reason, you don't receive your package, it makes "correcting" the matter simple. If you believe there's a high probability of the carrier losing your package and/or your package getting stolen after delivery on your doorstep by all means, pay the extra cost, as it's could be worth it.
On the other hand, if you suspect a slight possibility of not receiving your package and/or it's getting stolen, and are in no rush for getting "corrected", then Route Protection would be a complete waste of money, as you can easily get your money back from your bank. Almost all thanks have this sort of guarantee.
The thing you have to ask yourself is, "How valuable is this to me?" If you are part of the second group mentioned above, save your money. But, if you are part of the first group, then it could be very well worth spending that extra $12. I happen to live in a high-theft-rate area, as well as an area where the local FedEx Depot somewhat frequently "misplaces"/loses packages (two have been delayed in excess of 2 weeks because of being "misplaced", and two others were completely lost), so I felt spending that extra $12 was worth it.
Amazing best big ticke buy I’ve made. It goes faster then id ever need it to xD I took it on a joy ride to work and it only took 24 minutes for what is normally a 11 minute drive! I live in a place with horrible roads and I think I made a good choice in boards to combat that
Loved the board!!! But sad it got damaged in transit: ( but they refunded me my money so I’m definitely going to be buying another!!
Route keeps you updated every step of shipping if your package moves it shows on the map along with every item your receiving!
Packaged nicely with fast shipping.
I love the board!! It's exactly what I needed, it preforms way better then I expected for my weight. I weigh about 280 and it climbs hills no issue and reaches about 23 top speed for me on a straightaway. The battery lasts long then I expected. On a super hilly ride I have been able to get 10 miles out of it and was probably at 10 percent if I were to guess.
I had one issue where my first remote died after 3 days of owning it. However support was great they got me a new one 3 days later and replied faster then expected.
Overall I can't recommend this board more
Pretty Nice helmet, just needs a bit more padding and I can't figure out how to take the ear muffs off but other then that l, AWESOME HELMET
I’m loving the ride. Super fast and fun. Stable, but the brakes and take off in pro mode are a tiny bit aggressive for e board first timers;) it ended up taking 8 days from order to arrive in Louisville, Ky. That would be my only semi-complaint.
Great skateboard really impress Carries 225 pounds like nothing. Definitely recommend this board. Great job backfire.
This is the 2nd board I bought and I absolutely love it. The board is responsive to the remote and handles great. I am very happy with my Backfire V3 and would purchase one again.

Perfect replacement for lost screws
1300 M I lost four of them so I need to get a couple new set
Cheep metal. To go to pro staneless to get better one oh for 2 bucks
Delivered quickly and perfectly fit my skateboard. I also liked the quality of these components. Great job!
this fit my lycaon swift motors perfectly! came super fast!
Well it’s been a bit of a struggle. I couldn’t find the hardware because someone in your organization thought it would be a good idea to have two separate websites. Both sites are very similar but only the American one offers hardware. I Initially emailed the international site only to be told I would have to buy it somewhere else. Luckily I eventually found what I wanted. I don’t think I’d buy a board from a company that doesn’t make it easy to buy parts.
Came quickly. Need more belts now
Still has not shipped
They’re just screws, why am I even being asked to review this? One of the original screws on my board was stripped and I didn’t want an out-of-place-lookin screw on my board, so I bought some more from backfire rather than Home Depot. They’re not some cheap knock offs if that’s what people are wondering.
Its always good to have spare parts and spare hardware, thanks backfire for having my back.
They were that late but I understand thank you very much they're having fell out. You guys have the best customer service hands down thank you I'm seeing if I should get some lights from u guys but I don't know what r the good ones. I already ordered some set of wheels front and back. As u Can see
The screws didn’t come with washers, and I had ordered the 3 day shipping it took a little over a week
Bolts worked fine, there just a bit shorter than the original ones on the Zealot S.
Parts were as ordered and right on time thank u
Its not actually awsome. its just the counter to having belts. the screws come out. you should have instructions that tell people keep their shred key on them and to tighten the screws like hella and to use lock tite and that dielectric grease can loosen the lock tight. and that lock tight needs a day to set. people need to know.

Bearing look great, came on time as expected
WHEN YOU BUY THE WORNG ONE BACKFIRE SENT SENT ME THE RITE ONE IN LESS THAN A WEEK HAVE THE NEW ONES IN WORK LIKE NEW
Great bearings! I'd say they're at least 30% better than the originals. The job is no joke though. You need a work space, I had a vice i could use to to tap the bearings in and out on. I'd say youl need assembly lube, prefebly silicone based and make sure you tap the bearings in squarely so they don't get jammed in cockeyed. Cleaned the dust and crap out with compressed air and 91% alcohol and a toothbrush. Now that everything's back together it's quieter, smoother and faster than when it was new.
They shipped the bearing pretty fast.
Fresh bearing covers with bearing and ready to rock again! ♥️
Quick shipping and great customer service. First class Tech and Sales Reps. Thanks Backfire
Thanks for the immediate response and quick shipping. Back on my X2 and loving it as always.
Everything worked out great parts were exactly as i ordered and easy to replace thank u
Fast delivery, but there was not tooth.
Replaced the rear Hub motor bearings after 600 or so trouble free miles. One of the four old bearings was making I little noise but not bad. Decided to take care of it before it became a downed board. My son and I did the job in about a half an hour with basic tools and a bench vice. G2 black easy fix. The right parts and great customer service. I could not be happier with the 2 boards I bought about a year ago.

Disclaimer: below video is not sponsored by Backfire. We believe it is an informative review from a customer and helpful to explain how to install and use the tail lights. (The break sensor issue mentioned in the video could be isolated case)
These are great! They stay on well, i went over massive amount of bumps and gaps and they stayed on very well. Just screw them on tight! And charge them, and theyre good to go. Very bright and they look b@dA$$
They work great I leave them on auto and it works great and they are bright can be seen well at night or during the day and they look cool mounted on the board thank you guys now my board is complete
One of the lights stopped working just 6 days after use
Bought two sets of two and after only 3 months 1 light still works. The method of keeping them on is shotty at best due to how easy the washer and screw loosen and fall off. The only good thing I can say about them is they're bright for the few weeks they'll work.
I’ve gotta say I’m a little disappointed. I saw a couple of reviews saying that theirs stopped working after a little while, and unfortunately the exact same thing happened to me. One of mine just randomly stopped working after about only a few weeks of light riding, would not turn on or anything and worst of all it would not take a charge either. This is unfortunate because the other one seems to be working okay but I don’t know why this is happening to people. Also side note- I don’t really think they are that bright if I’m being honest.
Looks amazing on my scooter
Fast delivery easy to assemble and looks great
One of the lights quit working after just a couple of days, it also fell off the board the first ride, the whole enclosure, not just the screw off top part???Hopefully, I can get it replaced!
Great build quality on these little lights, bright enough for pedestrians, cyclists and hopefully cars?
Only issue is the accelerometer is not the most accurate I've ever seen, get a few false positives (brake lights even though I'm not breaking).
Otherwise great product!
These lights are awesome! 3 modes, super easy to install and most importantly makes it safer to ride at night. I love riding at night since there's less traffic. The lights are super bright and visible. There's a strobe, slow blink and an always on mode. I was a little skeptical since some people said they fall off. Took it on many rides short and long and never had a problem. Thanks Backfire!
Service and lights, including shipping, it’s great !!!!
Love these lights
The light works well and it is a nice feature that people behind me can see that I am slowing down. The issue is that one of the lights would not screw down tight and fall of when it I ride. And now I only have one light.
Amazing lights. I have seen some negative reviews of this and honestly I don't know why. I have had no problems with it whatsoever. The automatic mode works amazing, the brake lights come on right when I slow down. At night they are very bright and makes it very visible. Manual mode also works great to get flashing lights when needed for extra visibility. Great product, would 10/10 reccomend.
Commute early in the morning, lights work great. Only issue I have, is when in automatic mode it flashes unpredictable.
I just got them in the next day to stop working I already got a hold of tech support sent them a video and order number . they said they both sent me another pair but I haven't heard anything from them since and that was about 3 days ago
Don't work properly
There very well built . provides excellent light. The brake sinceing tech is an added saftey measure I like.
they are super bright. easy install. wish they had better sensitivity but overall very good
Okay, so these are good but not great. If you do buy one of these or the pair, make sure you get some loctite on the bolts holding the socket you screw the light into to the brackets mounted to the board. I nearly lost one when it came undone, got another bolt and washer, slather some loctite on there, and now I don't have to worry I might lose one.
lost a light do while riding the entire light thing popped off of the bracket and is somewhere on the ground now. will be asking for a new light to be sent to replace it. other than build quality the lights work great
Decent buy for me, but here’s how my purchase has held up after a month of constant use...
As a new rider, I needed backlights to go with my Canon 2 Backfire Headlights, and these are a good buy to pair with those, especially if you’re on a budget.
Obviously these are not as good a quality buy as the headlights I’ve mentioned earlier, (which kind of makes me wish Backfire would make their own backlights) but that is to be expected for the price.
PRICE - They’re great for the price point, there’s no other way to say it.
BATTERY - They are handy to have if you like to ride in the late evening, with a battery life that would certainly surprise you. On a single charge, these lights lasted me about a week after constant rides that would span over a couple of hours at a time.
INSTALLATION - They are fairly durable, sturdy, and very simple to install. these fit my G2 Galaxy perfect.
FEATURES - Light comes integrated with an auto light function, that turns on automatically when it’s dark enough, (needs to be switched over) and a manual light function, that can be cycled through the single button function. I especially enjoy the automatic brake light sensors that detects when your board is...well...braking.
POWER - Small complaint here, but just a heads up. You can only shut these off by holding down the power button (1s) in MANUAL mode, not auto. So if you need to do so, you’ll have to unscrew the whole light. Again, no biggie.
*DURABILITY - Let me start off by adding this disclaimer. I ride on a lot of different roads (from smooth and easy, to uncomfortable and rough), these lights will have a strong hold when tightened, but for some of my rides, one light seemed to be loosened up by the backscrew on its own after constantly riding on rough terrain. (With 96 mm wheels) This one managed to pop off a couple of times, causing me to lose the washer and screw that comes with it. This happened to me twice in one week. (The only upside to losing the screw and washer is that they were easy items to find and replace at Home Depot).
The other light that didn’t pop off stayed fastened and unscathed, so obviously your results may vary.
Good buy for a bargain price, but be sure to check on them every so often, not just when your about to charge the battery.
I got a pair of the smart lights and one of them worked great but the other one didn’t even turn on.
After only 4 or 5 rides I noticed that one light seemed to have changed to auto instead of manual. The switch was still in manual, I switched it back and forth but couldn't get it out of auto.
Awesome, looks great , works great and for safety... best lights on the market. Lights look like there mini jets ... good job !!!
Works great, very bright!!
I like the lights but found they are not mount-friendly with Backfire G2 and Zealot S because the electric cables are in the way. Modding the mount brackets is possible to avoid interfering with cables. To the reviewer that said, "the lights vibrated loose and fell off" I put a small patch of plastic wrap on the threads and screwed the lights tight and this method is easier to unscrew than using Loctite. The Braking action on lights is a great feature.
Bought these from Backfire. Worked great till I needed to charge them. When I plug them in to charge, 2 lights on the back, one red for charging, one green for when fully charged. Problem is now they will not come on at all once charged. Plug them back in, they turn green after a minute, so the battery is charged on both units (bought a pair) but will refuse to come on, even if holding down the only button for 6 seconds to reset. So now they are just paper weights. I could see if one failed, but they both did, showing the are fundamental flawed and backfire should stop selling them immediately so it will not tarnish their brand.
If your looking to buy these lights for the brake function forget about it. It's so sensitive the smallest bump will cause the brake lights to activate. The brake light pretty much stays on the whole ride. Lol
Why would they sell a light with a video on it that says the light is not a good light?
They both backed completely out and fell off/out (somewhere) the same day!i cant believe it because I tightened them hand tight and made sure I didn't cross thread them. I have no idea where they came off because I didn't hear them come off I think it's a poor design or at least at the very least advise the customer to use some thread locker (like blue loc tight) or some kind of clamping system so that they don't come off because the vibration of the board going on some rough patches seems to have vibrated them loose. It's a shame because I loved them and thought the build quality was great except for that one problem. If anyone else has a pair or these on their board I really advise you put a small strip of duct tape around the seam or maybe just a small drop of Loc-Tight on the main threads. I'd hate for this to happen to someone else, or worse get hit by a car, etc. and killed because someone didn't see you!
Purchased to for My Backfire Zealot and I am very happy with the purchase. Easy to Install
These lights looks amazing and function well. However be careful when mounting them, after putting mine on my board one of my motors will not spin so my board has been unusable. Not sure what happened but I've only been able to ride my board once since mounting the lights. Visibility is great with these though.
This is a great product, however the mounts are not fitted to new school style hardware setups.
It was good i love it wish it was easier to install on the mini which I still can't do but I put it on the ranger x2 and it works great
I purchased cheaper lights for another board but these are worth the extra money. Great visibility and the brake light feature is awesome! Two of them on my Ranger X2 make a great board even better!
This SMART light does everything as described. Initially I bought one but then bought a second one to add to my visibility at night. I couldn't be happier. Highly recommend
