The brand new BACKFIRE Gen II Lights are our latest skateboard accessory, created based upon the feedback from our Gen I Light users and the E-skate community.
It features two 300 lumen lights per set with 3.5 hours of lighting time, enough for any night group ride or commute. The mounting mechanism of our Gen 2 Lights, based on feedback, has been moved from the top of the deck to the bottom, and are placed aside the truck base.
The triple-split Type-C cable included also allows you to charge both lights and the BACKFIRE remote simultaneously, which makes it two cables less for you to worry about.
This light currently might not fit the Ranger X1 or X2, and Mini for directly installation under the deck. You will need a riser under the truck and longer bolts if necessary to install the light under the Ranger deck.
I love riding at night but I also like to not die. These lights helps provide the former by reducing the risk of the latter. The lights are bright enough to see most of the stuff i might hit, and they have always outlasted the boards battery so I don't worry about running out of light. They also mount nicely out of the way so I hardly notice them when they aren't on.
Solid construction, easy installation, and very bright.
There well built and solid. No vibration when you install included pad.they last a long time and throw light right were I need it.
I bought these about 3 months ago, and for a while they worked well. Suddenly however, the right light started malfunctioning and randomly switches on and off, making the battery depleted when I actually need it and being annoying when not in use and still charged due to the constant turning on and off.
I contacted support which quickly replied that they do not have any warranty on these whatsoever, telling me to buy a new set.
The warranty page was pretty unclear to me, but regardless, I don't suggest buying a product that is likely to break after 3 months of normal use.
Works great. EXTREMELY BRIGHT. Seems to be dirt/dust resistant as well as water resistant. Worth the money in my opinion.
It’s just what I needed for those late night rides with the boys
(and occasionally girls)
It’s been great , they look so good. But my right light just broke off my trucks . So hopefully I could maybe get another pair sent out / warranty .
Got the light for my new Galaxy, happy about the purchase :)
Due to the offset of the mounting plate to make room for the truck base on standard trucks, these won't fit drop-thru trucks (such as those on the Ranger line) without some sort of spacer. Alternatively you could mount them on top of the board, but that ruins the whole point of the design.
This review started at 5 stars, as the design was a good idea and the flashlights themselves are well built and very bright. I've deducted 1 star for misleading product description failing to mention incompatibly with drop-thru trucks, 1 for failing to provide sufficient hardware to mount them on any Backfire board, and 1 for the button being on the bottom instead of the side, making it more difficult to access while riding.

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)
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

Love the light. Really wish the Rail on the light wasn't plastic. One good impact and it gets destroyed
Loved it at first but in a short time two of them have broken. They both broke at the base, the plastic channel that mounts to the base. One tumbled and won't turn on, the other still works so I hold it in my hand when I ride.
My dissatisfaction isn't that they break. My dissatisfaction comes from going online to find this is a common problem and you haven't fixed it yet still feel great selling them.
You're a good company making a popular product. Your reputation is good, don't mess that up with a $30 light!
Absolutely the best and brightest light on the market.
Have this light on all my boards!
Light is bright, weather resistand, and seems to be mostly of good quality. I experienced the same issue as others. Where the light connects to the mount is 2 thin plastic grooves. It broke and came loose the first five minutes of riding. The position of it in front of foot is prone to being accidentally kicked or pushed. It's not a deal breaker, but I would like to see this improved or redisigned. Everything else about my board is solid, excluding this flimsy cheap plastic light mount connection. It had me worried about the quality of the rest of the board. I would return the light, but I know the replacement would snap off just as quick. It's a shame because everything else included is robust and of high quality. I've put 100 hard miles on my G2T in a short amount of time, and it has taken it like a champ. Backfire, please fix this issue, it is leaving a bad taste in customer's mouths.
We recently purchased the Ranger X2 and the light came included. We have been using it for the past months daily in the cold damp weather in Seattle. So far the light is living it up to my abuse, kicked it out by mistake on to cement several times. Gone throw damp grass, the bight throw of the beam will get you noticed and highly visible for the rider. This is well build with strong aluminum housing. I highly recommend this light. I have this installed in the front and shred light red in the rear, looks gorgeous!
Had this wheel for about 5 days of riding and the plastic lip that holds the light to the metal mounting bracket broke clean off so that the light will not stay attached to the bracket or board. Email Backfire customer service about this and they are very good, got me a pre-paid shipping label for me to send the light to them to repair. Received the fixed light back after only about 7 days which really impressed me. However, after riding again with the new light on the board after about 7 days it broke in the exact same spot as it did before! It is clear that the design of the light which is plastic and the mounting bracket which is metal is a recipe for disaster. The reason I am giving this review a 2 star instead of a 1 star is due to Backfires customer service which is outstanding. I think Backfire just needs to go back to the drawing board with this light and just make either the light metal (which would cost more) or the bracket plastic (which could be a little sketchy for durability but would cost less from a manufacturing stand point.)

Just got my fiance and I matching helmets. They're very light weight yet you can tell they're well made. The tightening mechanic makes the helmet snug and very comfortable. Anyone who's had a loose fitting helmet know how annoying they can be. Padding on the chin strap is a pleasant bonus I didn't notice when ordering. Came in 2 days as well !
Awesome product and service!
***!!! TERRIBLE !!!***
DO NOT BUT THIS THING. IT CAME WITH GLUE ALL OVER IT AND IS SUPER UNCOMFORTABLE. QUALITY CONTROL IS SUPER CHINA!!!!
Overall most comfortable helmet I have worn I love the adjustment on the back and a padded chinstrap? Yes please. I am so pleased with this helmet.
Its a really dope helmet. Very lightweight. Thanks backfire for reals
Comfortable Helmet and fits very well, the only thing is that in the summer wearing this helmet is a pain though
I love my backfire electric board helmet it's very comfortable it fits just right it's the best helmet that I've purchased in a long time it's unmatched to all other helmets that I've had in the past longboarding free boarding there's nothing that I don't like about it the vents on the top keep me cool in the summer the sides for the ears will keep me warm in the winter I would highly recommend this helmet for anybody that wants comfort style and affordability in a helmet two thumbs up backfire great job thank you
Great helmet! Fits appropriately. I have a big head, and lots of poofy hair, so I got a large. It fits my large noggin, and my up-do comfortably, and the chin strap is fully adjustable from just about every angle. The adjustable head-band inside is nice for an extra-snug fit, and the ear-covers are fully removable. I hate helmets a lot, but this one is nice and light, and really not too bulky at all. If it wasn't for the strap, I would honestly forget that I was wearing a helmet at all
I wish I got a small I'm a female so the medium looks so large on me
Very Light at times I forget to take it off my head after the Bike Riding with my Juicedbike...
Great helmet, just needs a little more padding and I can't seem to figure out how to take off the ear muffs.
Fast and best helmet for the price
This helmet is awesome! The backfire logo on the side is stylish and the helmet itself if very comfortable!
I purchased a set of shred lights for my g2t skateboard and my son borrowed my board and lost one of the lights so I bought the newest set, I put them on my board and decided to buy a helmet got it in the mail and decided to the extra light I had on the helmet. It came out real nice!
Great helmet super comfortable
Amazing finish and perfect for any skateboarder
The backfire helmet works great and for 39 dollars its actually worth it it also looks cool and has ear covers great product for 39 dollars but 79 dollars its not worth it so buy it now
I use my g3 plus for a 20 mile round trip to work and there is a slight incline to work and this board handles it with ease only dropping to 2bars left of battery after 10 miles of slight up hill riding! I like the board so much I got my friend to order the g3 because he was so impressed with the plus. I would recommend both the g3 and the g3plus and looking forward to getting a ranger x2 next! The board got to me in 2 weeks and the costumer service has been great! Overall I think backfire might be the company that steals the show with there very affordable prices and the great quality you get for it! Thank you backfire for doing a great job!
I bought it for snowboarding and it works with my goggles perfectly. I will buy again for my gf.
