After your first order, you will not need the pulley again if you just want to replace the wheels, you can order the 105mm Cloudwheel set without pulley as below.
96mm Wheel Set: They are the same wheel sets as installed on the Zealot by default. 608 2RS high speed bearings are pre-installed.
HTD-260-5M 15 20 Belts for Zealot, these belts work for both 96mm wheels and 105mm Cloudwheels.
The pulley from zealot does not work with 105mm cloud wheels directly. If you plan to order the cloud wheels, please select the comb option provided including the pulley. If want to get the additional pulley,you can add this option.
They feel great riding. I don't ride aggressive. But I feel the expensive wheels are cheaply made. ALL 4 of my wheels coming apart like the photo. That happened less than 2 months of not even riding every day. Not buying again.
My old ones broke so I got new ones, I had it coming I was ripping pretty hard.
So yeah, new belts. Got that new belt smell, new belt grip.
It increased my horse power by one chihuahua.

They work good
These things ride like a dream on the busted chicago streets, feel much safer. Wish the logo didn't fade so quickly, but they clean up real well when you're wiping down the board.
I love it nothings wrong
Haven't tried the cloud wheels yet.
Love the zealot .durable and fast
It was super easy to put on the new wheels. The first ride with these were amazing! It was extremely smooth even on road with rocks. Definitely should get this if you are still thinking.
The 105mm Cloud wheels are a 'must' accessory for the Zealot. They noticeably cut down the road vibration.
Don't leave home without them.
Putting them on is a bit tricky but they work great
I got these for the rough roads of Chicago IL. I have about a 2 1/2 mile commute to and from work. It makes going over the rough pavement and the metal mesh on the bridges. Ride is smooth and still seem to be able to carve fairly nimbly. I wasn’t sure but I’m glad I got them and if I ever sell the board it’s an up sell. Thanks.
One motor gave up on me after 4900+ miles on my Zealot and the other was definitely showing age. The Zealot motor set was a no-brainer compared to buying each motor separate. This is the entire rear truck MINUS the baseplate! Wheels, pulleys, belts, bearings etc!
New wheels are great. Came super fast relative to the shipping option I chose. Although my top speed is lower I now feel comfortable going a lot faster than I origionally would on the regular wheels.
The perfect wheels for a smooth ride!
I’m very impressed on how much these mints take the slack out of you acceleration over all I hit 27 fast with these and my new deck / over all diy build
Ride quality and stability definitely improved. Worth the sacrifice on range for me.
They are okay. Great for observing bumps and making for a comfortable ride. But to me, it’s not worth sacrificing the range and handling of the stock wheels on my zealot
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
backfire I just ordered this motors not even a month ago and one of my motos stopped working 2days ago. I don't have enough money to order a new I was wondering if you could help me with a discount I would appreciate thanks
Super fast shipping and included everything in the picture but the baseplate. Took 10 mins max to swap out and now I have fresh running gear after 5000 miles! Thanks Backfire! You guys rock!
excellent product and fast shipping
Super fast shipping on replacement belts for minimum down time.
got here on time
I bought a different set of wheels and need these, so it would push the wheel out far enough to not rub on the belts.
I only and always carry a spare set of backfire belts in my backpack! Great belts and they last a while!
love them thanks
nice I like them they work
I love the ride on the original wheels, they feel like super sporty and fast when it comes to aggressive riding. if you got like streets that are not that perfect or you do want to ride more an allrounder board you should get those ! The topspeed geta higher on cloudwheels but the accelleration decreases and also the range will go down a bit. Anyways i made last day with both boards on cloudwheels about 16kmh at Venicebeach in La & both boards had about 50% batteries left.. easy going !!
Love it so far.. easy to learn how to ride and manage the throttle.. after video I upgraded to cloud wheels..
Rode it for about 2 weeks now on over dirt roads with some gravel and was carving the streets comfortably definitely the best purchase ever made thank y’all for the product!!
The difference between stock wheels and Cloudwheels are night and day. Every road is smoother and I have way more confidence to go faster. From now on, any board I own will have e Cloudwheels.
We were impressed from the very unboxing with the noticeable high quality and rugged build, and the board and incredible ride has disappointed since. This board has been incredible so far. Thank you. Tom Randle and Ketsara Kalla
Purple Cloud Wheels 105
- Top Speed
- not for carving
The Cloudwheels really created a very smooth ride on broken pavement and sidewalk transitions! I’m impressed!
cloud wheel is a must if you are riding on road that isn't perfect.. which most streets and sidewalks are in US. lol Must buy
Beautiful, great wheels for everything just less torque
I have not received this item yet
i love backfire
They’re pretty good. You can definitely feel the comfort increase and the range decrease. Also these wheels are a bit noisy on completely flat ground from the texture of the wheels. I live at a university with pretty bad roads and brick roads at times and I no longer cringe when riding over them. I just regret buying the black ones instead of the pink- I mean purple ones, but they were out of stock :(
Great wheels!! Love the size and I love how Backfire logo is on the cloudwheels itself. It looks very clean with the board!
VERY COMFORTABLE!! Best purchase I’ve done this year forsure and it’s worth every penny, especially cuz I got it for way cheaper in backfire website than cloudwheels!
In love with these wheels and in love with Backfire’s customer service!
BACKFIRE HAS THE BEST CUSTOMER SERVICE. PERIOD. Super fast shipping! I love my Cloudwheels and I think it’s perfect with my board!
The board feels great and like a brand new toy! Rides very smooth. Go for 120mm if you want comfort but 105mm for me is the perfect size and better look, also better range.
The customer service and the product is excellent including the fast shipping!!!
Highly recommended, if you are looking for an extra comfort and you don’t mind to take the little mileage loss!!
Pulleys came in fast and they seem pretty durable
Always got to have extra belts.. and they last..
These wheels are very nice. They definitely reduce the amount of vibration from the road and give a significantly smoother ride. They have great grip on corners, not at great as the 96mm. Overall highly recommend.
They don’t really help much on rougher roads for me, are squirrely, and hurt the batteries range significantly.
Got it quick!
They work alright, you can tell the difference. Mine started getting tiny holes all around then wheels after like the 2nd ride. But the holes don’t effect the performance yet I guess. They feel good under the feet, just hoping they at least last.
Absolutely amazing board, wheels, & lights. This is the only way to truly experience what backfire zealot has to offer. I highly recommend the board and accessories.
Not the most flattering picture, but the wheels look great in person. By trading some distance, you do get a smoother ride with a bit more confidence in clearing obstacles on the road. If you have the cash, these are a great side-grade to the stock wheels, NOT an upgrade. I think that the stock wheels are exceptionally good and give you better distance and acceleration than these wheels. Easy to install, great looking, and functional. The only thing I'd be wary about is the price but for me, it was worth it.
So comfortable to ride with this wheels
Came quickly, bolts around motor are difficult to get at though
I think backfire is cool
Nothing like a fresh set of belts and they came quick as lightning! ⚡️ The Best fit for the Zealot S is backfire OE replacement belts they run true and straight & strong!
Great pulleys & come with new bearings thank you backfire always comin in clutch!
More confident at higher speeds, however loose tons of range with these wheels
Excellent motor truck hangar for Zealot. I purchased to accommodate my 120mm Discovery Cloud wheel core 37t pulley for the Zealot. I've had many trucks bend on me, and I'm only 140lbs. These are honestly a very sturdy and light weight motor axle hangar.
Love the cloud wheels, such a huge difference! From sidewalk gaps to rough roads, pine cones, gravel in the road, even a half-empty water bottle, the cloud wheels takes them all on and keeps me on the board. Highly recommended. I dyed mine red but be careful on the dye you'll turn them black.
Stoked to have these for my cloud wheels. They were in stock which was clutch! Much smoother ride!
I don't think these are needed for the 105mm cloud wheels. They cover very little. Original covers work fine with my 105mm cloud wheels.
Shipping was fast. I didn't have any belts left. Came right on time
made the biggest difference. strongly suggest
Incredible riding experience almost cloud like thanks to its great shape. 10/10 would recommend
CloudWheels are a major safety upgrade. Now I get it. This is not how they are marketed because unless you’re name is Volvo, selling safety is not sexy. CloudWheels are sexy AF on my board as you can clearly see. The performance is next level. When you have a longboard capable of north of 30mph speed. You want to know that hitting a rock or crack in the road is not going to land you in the hospital. These CloudWheels have given me so much Confidence when out tearing up Hopewell NJ rural roads. My Backfire Zealot S feels like a C8 Vette. Planted to the road like bubblegum on a 90° summer day. Throw a set on your ride of choice. Then get ready to be instantly impressed.
These wheels are a lifesaver. There is a lot of hard packed gravel roafs where I live and they make the ride much smoother. They are easy to install as well.
A whole different riding experience.
I love how smoothly the cloud wheels take sidewalk seams, bumps, and cracks. They also afford a slightly higher top speed due to their larger diameter. Their only drawback, is the increased battery consumption.

They came pretty quick
Got here quick and exactly what I needed
Original battery, original remote, original charger. I got 1560 miles out of original motors and just put a new set of motors and cloud wheels. This board has been 100% reliable and 100% quality since day 1!!
Highly recommend Backfire boards A+++ 5stars from me.
Thank you for your understanding and help with our issue regarding the wheels and bolts. So far so good.
The lady that I spoke to said that they no longer maid the screws to my X1 Ranger motor hubs. She did recommend from a different motor. She said she would call me back and she did so, which shocked me. Ordered the recommended replacement and they are great. They are actually easier to manage than the originals, which required a special screw driver bit.
I enjoy the fact that they truck bolts are long enough to be able to attach other upgrades onto your board. Never had a problem with stripping or loose nuts. Still need to buy headlights but that’s what I mean. All the merrier.
This tool is not just like ur generic tool, well it is but it’s also very reliable because as a frequent rider I’m always checking my board for maintenance. The metal is strong and the Phillips tool on the inside also comes in handy for other things besides the use towards your board.
As mentioned in my previous review regarding the wheel screws, these battery and enclosure screws are also very nice because they don’t rust out, or strip. Which is very nice because you don’t need to worry when you happen to get the underside of your boat wet when riding.
I realize you may not be able to tell by the video resolution but these screws are durable. I’ve put them through hell both. They aren’t the cheap kind either, thankfully they are built to last.
I'm so used to never having a problem with my G2 blk that I stopped checking for wear n tear and as a result didn't notice a couple of screws on the back left wheel got loose & fell out. I heard an odd noise but didn't check right away till' I got home and lo n behold. Thanks for sending the replacement quickly as I use my board for nearly everything.
Perfect fit fast shipping
Great product! These are the original screws that my Ranger X2 came with. As expected these are perfect. Tip: DONT FORGET TO TIGHTEN YOUR SCREWS.

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.
105mm Cloud Wheel Donut for Hub motors: G3, G3 Plus, G2 black, Galaxy and Mini
Save $0.00 USD
For People who want to increase their wheel size on Backfire Boards. Now you can order the 105mm Cloud wheels Donuts. Disclaim: with the cloud wheels on, you might increase the top speed and also gain better riding feelings, but the range/distance will drop.
Exclusive Patent DFC Damping Technology
CLOUD WHEEL Donut has an exclusive patented DFC damping technology, which can filter most of the vibration compared with the traditional PU wheel.
More Shock Absorption,
Comfortable Riding on City Road
They look awsome and handle well on the rough roads
The tires were delivered a lot faster than i anticipated! And they work amazing, road vibrations litterally depending on the road are insignificant. love them
As for the battery consumption i cant really tell the difference and i ride avidly!!!
Love these tires. Does lower the range a little and the bite of sports mode, but the comfortability is far more worth it!
Super fast delivery without the cost along with great quality of the product
I was skeptical about upgrading to these wheels but decided to do it anyways. I am so glad I did. I don't get almost knocked off of my board going over bridge junctions ( or whatever the things that kind of look like train tracks are called), and I can actually take em at full speed.
Sidewalk cracks are also tolerable now. I'd say it's about a 75% less hostile experience. Downhill sidewalk rides are actually fun, but I still avoid poorly leveled sidewalks when going uphill because I did get knocked off my board going about 15 mph when the next sidewalk piece was an inch higher.
Overall, worth the upgrade. I was gonna get another board at first, but these wheels have allowed me to hold off on buying a new one until direct drive motor technology catches up to where I need it to be.
The best addition you can do! Absolutely awesome wheels, ride and performance.
This company is amazing!
Way smoother ride. Slight road noise. Compatible with the G2 board. Easy install.
Wheels are terrible went up side walk with them and it cracked my board and ripped the front left wheel.
These wheels are what you need to become the ultimate road surfer. I bought them just because I was curious to see how they would feel. I will never put my stock wheels back on unless absolutely necessary. I’ve road +200 miles on these wheels so far and the tread/grip is still there. I’ve also gone through grass, dirt, sand, gravel, mud, etc. The only grief I’ve experienced was when the sand became more than 4” deep. Sidewalk cracks/bumps are more comfortable. Even those little bumps at the end/beginning of every sidewalk you just don’t feel them now. I can also go over curbs from sidewalk to road now with ease. Would highly recommend upgrading your battery, motor, and enclosure for high performance, and maximum distance.
They broke it don’t buy it
These wheels are game changer! Get them!
Makes all the difference for a smoother ride
(Note: that the wheels are dirty from riding, they were pretty out the box ☺️ )
My 10 year old rides the backfire electric skateboard, we replaced it's original wheels with the baby blue cloud wheels last weekend. She noticed the difference immediately. She said it's so much more of a smoother ride. And it's easier for her to go over rough asphalt, side walk cracks and small gravel. The fact it made her feel more stable and safe on the bored was worth the cost of the wheels.
Dampens vibration, stops feet from going numb on long rides - can easily handle small stones and branches - best for long commutes.
AWESOME product. easy to install. love working with Backfire USA. They take the time to match you with the right product for your application
A much needed upgrade over the standard wheels, greatly reduced felt vibration and increased ride enjoyment.
I like the wheels very much. I was glad they came with bearings and screws. It was disappointing that it did not include any Truck spacers. First time I rode the wheels bed and knocked me off the skateboard. I had to buy spacers to raise the board versus the factory wheels on my backfire mini.
lots of fun and power
I got these for a galaxy. They are big and cool but the deficit they create in torque on this particular board along with the range lost makes them not a great choice for a 10s board. In turbo the torque is ok but range suffers drastically. For a galaxy or any other 10s battery board id say stick with the 97mm wheels
Wheels are smooth and look awesome. Easy to install
Changes the ride for the better definitely! Gives you more confidence while carving at higher speeds. I'm dropped a star because I have used them for about a month and they have worn very quick especially in the back. The nature of the hub motors heating up adds to quicker wear. For 140 dollars I most likely will put my original wheels on after the cloud wheels wear out. I ride daily and am a heavier rider at 225 lbs.
I was a little skeptical about cloud wheels but I am so glad I bought them. A lot of reviews I came across said the grip wasn't that great and the durability wasn't so hot but I haven't had any issues with any of that. In fact I think it felt better while carving and did increase the top speed a bit. It lowered my range slightly but not too much of an issue. Installation was a breeze.
Overall, super glad I got em. Thanks Backfire!
I love them, so much less vibration when I’m hitting boarded trails or rougher paved roads. These wheels have made riding even more enjoyable
These wheels are game-changers. So incredibly smooth on crappy asphalt, and they demolish acorns, small rocks, sticks, etc. You won't regret this purchase! They are a challenge to put on since they are a snug fit. You must line the screw holes up perfectly the 1st time or you'll have to reseat the wheel. I suggest a small piece of wood and a rubber mallet so when the holes are lined up you can 'hammer' the center of the wood and have the wheel slide on easily and evenly.
LOVE the light blue cloud wheels with the Backfire G3!!! I just went 5 miles today with my wife and daughter on their bikes. We had a blast!
30 miles total so far. I can ride on the sidewalk when needed. On the road, the carving and feel was really nice!!! For super super smooth roads, I still prefer the original G3 wheels. For sidewalks and rougher asphalt roads, Cloud wheels all day!
Straight up game changer. If you're looking for a good slide wheel these aren't it but these have an insane amount of traction which I like for higher speeds. Worth it.
Superb G3 now fitted with backfire cloud wheel. Dramatically changes the board on rougher surfaces. Would highly recommend the cloud wheels. Board has great flex and I am nearly 100Kg and still boarding age 59. Never stop pushing the boundaries.
Very smooth ride, more confident at higher speeds and I believe they go a little faster than the 96mm, however I got around 13 miles if range instead of a usual 18-20 miles. Nice wheels for woody areas, festivals, ect.
These wheels are a game changer for the mini. The bigger softer iclouds give it a smoother ride with significantly less vibration I love them. They were a bit expensive yet they were worth it. You get what you pay for.
I was skeptical about these wheels because of the price but they are very nice wheels and high quality. The wheeels do a really good job getting rid of vibrations and makes the ride much smoother. highly recommend
Installed on my black, it roughly eliminated 60% of the vibration. For me it's a new board now, perfect for riding on the paved road and the side walk.
Installed cloudwheels in my mini , its a completely different board now , all vibration from rough pavement is gone .

Great they are very smooth and dependable
great bearings at a great price
2nd hub motor bearing replacement. I'm getting better at it. Don't ride through puddles or the rain because the larger bearings on the inside of the motors (towards the deck) are totally exposed and the water will displace the oil in the bearings and then when the water evaporates there will be nothing but dirt and grit inside the bearings. Sealed bearings would be nice but it doesn't seem Backfire has that option. They should.
you get 2 bearings for $8, i thought i was getting 8.. you can get the same exact ones for 85cents a pop on other websites.
Bearing look great, came on time as expected
Got my extra bearings within a week! Thanks for the speedy shipping
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.
96 & 85MM Wheels for Backfire G3 Plus, G3 ,Mini, G2 BLACK &Galaxy 2020
Save $5.00 USD
96mm wheels provides more comfort to the riding on the rough roads, but reduce the torque of the board compare to the 85mm wheels. 85mm wheels provides more torque in acceleration, while 96mm wheels give you more comfort on rough roads.
The back sleeves are special designed to fit Backfire motors for certain models only. So these particular wheels and sleeve fit G3 PLUS, G3, MINI and G2 BLACK, BUT NOT fit: G2T or Other G2 models since 2017.
Even though all the photos of the item show the green/gray color wheel. What they actually send is the black one. I guess they’re the same wheel? But it looks ratchet. Cuz I only bought the back wheels cuz the front ones were fine.
like new , in fact I am still trying to determine if the wheels were actually used.. canrLX-
great buy and smooth ride
ive tried other budget boards and this by far exceeds its price. very pleased with the new wheels
Love these wheels.
So I realize that these wheels are not the stock 96mm wheels that came with my G3 electric longboard. However, these are the 105mm cloud wheels that Backfire also sells and I would highly recommend getting them. The 96mm are also really good for and I would highly recommend them for sliders, so if that’s more your style than feel free. The bearings that come with both types of wheels are incredible. Not only do they stay clean but my god do they make cruising more fun.
Personally I love these wheels they’re great just big enough to get through your journeys troubled roads and just the right size at speed and acceleration! A happy medium! and they come with bearings and spacers installed!!!
After a thousand miles it felt time for some new wheels and luckily these arrived quickly and fast. Really love the customer service
I got these to replace cloud wheels on my Exway X1 Max Hub. (sorry backfire!) I will say though that these are much more comfortable than the exway 85mm and carves much better as well as keeping the stock feel of acceleration than the 105mm cloud wheels.
I like the power from the size tire because after I put rubber on top of it it gets me back to 96mm tire size I get up to 27miles per hour and that's fast
Good quality wheels fit perfectly to my motors on the board with over 1,000 miles on them board is running smoothly still. Starting to wonder if it will break lol but it's all mechanically sound
They feel better than meepo wheels. Round edges instead of sharp ones. Carves better now
Finally had to change my wheels after 700 miles of riding. These things are built to last. I live in Chicago and ride to and from work every day (about 4 miles each way) through rough conditions and road debris and these wheels held up for 700 miles. Definitely going to keep another set of these on hand.
Riders choice these pu sleeves are great they’re smooth round and comfortable great for speed great for smooth too lightly ruff road all around great wheel for its purpose 10/10 thanks guys
250 miles ridden so far!
Great pu’s picked up another set early to have them ready in the future!!! Thanks Backfire!
These 96mm wheels are great for the city since you know how rough it can be going over manhole covers. It's like riding on a cloud. I am very pleased with the grip they have also. Thumbs up Backfire.

Caliber II 50 Degree Truck Details:
CALIBER III 10" 50° RAKED TRUCK:
Caliber Truck Co. is a skateboard truck manufacturing company dedicated to creating the highest quality trucks on the market. After 5 years of research and development the results are the strongest and most customizable trucks to date; the battle proven Caliber III. Updated to satisfy the modern downhill skater with optional rake, the ability to use any bushing size, increased strength and a budget friendly price tag.
Newly designed, widened hanger supports for increased strength. Specifically to prevent bending.
45° chamfer for weight reduction. Specifically to offset the weight increase from added hanger material.
High strength SCM435 alloy steel kingpins eliminate unwanted kingpin movement.
SCM435 alloy steel axles reduce the risk of bending or cracking.
Upgraded 96A urethane pivot cups are longer lasting and eliminate pivot slop.
Tried and true tombstone hanger design increases strength and rigidity over competitors.
Venom 90A High Performance Formula Plug Barrel bushings, designed specifically for Caliber Trucks, eliminate unwanted hanger slop and HPF urethane provides a fast return to center.
10" (184mm) hangar for stability and easier slide initiation.
Stamped steel, flat washers for less restriction and improved response.
Truck degree is stamped on the bottom surface of the baseplate for easy identification.
The 50° baseplate is the most lively feeling option in our line, it provides a sharper turning radius, ideal for cruising, carving and freestyle/dance.
Raked hanger provides increased turn and a generally more lively feeling ride.
Raked hangar can also be flipped upside down from the stock position. This will turn it into a negative rake truck, for more consistent turns, lower ride height, easier slide initiation and an overall more stable ride. Ideal for fast freeride, downhill and beginners.
These are very strong, durable, and reliable trucks. I’ve put them through hell and the bushings are still like brand new. Trucks have definitely been put to the test when riding under the feet of me but they still have yet to fail even after hundreds and hundreds of miles.
Backfire products are the best in the industry. Overly happy with them however very disappointed with the shipping. Still haven’t receive my product.
I love it
It’s been great so far. Happy with products
Board is responsive, great braking, truly amazing. I live this board!

Motor covers for G3 & Mini (Also could be used on G3 plus, G2 Black and G2 Galaxy after June 2020)
Motor cover for G3 Plus (Also could be used on G3, Mini, or G2 black & G2 Galaxy)
The 1st generation G2 black motor cover with bearing and magnets (for G2 BLACK made before June 2020, please check with our support if you are not sure which version you had):
It never came in the mail.
These covers have been through a lot. All weather conditions included, and they have still kept their look, shape, and strength even after +200 miles.
The locktight didnt hold. So the screws would either loosen or tight and damaged the hubcaps. Now i have a bunch of screws that snapped and i cant get them out. The motors now have a severe wobble. Need to get more parts...again.
Easy installation. Looks even better.
Easy replacement and looks great!
Works well love it
the top hole is broken and I didn't read the order right I thought I purchased two of them the only purchase one I would like to purchase the other one if that's possible please other than that everything else works perfect still going to order some more stuff thank you
Needed this last one broke
Can you make this out of a stronger alloy exactly the same but stronger metal or maybe steel.
I had to replace my old cover when the bolt holes wore out. The new shipped out fast and was at my front door in about a week!
Very responsive and very helpful.
Got these to replace a different brands caps because they use the same bolt pattern. The backfire caps weigh substantially more than the originals which snapped. Worked like a charm.
Replacement Wheels for Ranger X2
Save $20.00 USD
We realized to install the rubber tires on the Ranger X2 wheels could be challenging for some of users who do not have the experiences, skills or necessary tools. So we start offering the pre-installed tire with rim for an easier option for you to change back wheels on Ranger X2, which also giving the motors fresh new rims with magnates.
1. Rubber tire with Rim Set with 32kv motors before Oct. 13th 2020 ( sold by two as showing in the photo)
The rubber tire is pre-installed on the rims
The magnets are also included in the rim to work with the motor coil.
It is easier to install than the rubber tire itself.
2. Rubber tire with Rim Set with 33kv motors After Oct. 13th 2020 (sold by two as showing in the photos)
The rubber tire is pre-installed on the rims
There is no magnets on the rim (changed the design in the motor)
It is much easier to install than the rubber tire itself.
3. Front wheels : you will get two front wheels to fit Ranger X2. The bearings are pre-installed in the front wheels. Ranger X1 users please read below before making a purchase, you will need to order a new hanger or axle to fit the new front wheel.
WHAT IS NEW ABOUT THE FRONT WHEELS FOR RANGER X1 USERS?
Well, As you can see below there is a different structure on the new wheels to the left. Each wheel weighs 550g compared to the old wheels which weigh 2600g. This is a massive improvement to the weight of the board making it easier to bring with you on a daily commute.
Not only is the weight improved but you may be wondering why the wheels came with a new hanger. Well, below you can see an up-close photo of the two hangers. On the left is the old hanger and on the right is the new one. You can see the main difference is the metal cutout at the end of the wheelbase. The old wheel has a square cutout that would be inserted into that square cutout. This was due to the special nature of the old wheels. The new wheels use regular bearings which means it does not need this square cutout anymore so it got changed to a circle to set the new wheel in the same position the old wheel was instead of slightly further out.
The wheels also add ride comfort. The old wheels would bottom out on large cracks between pavement. This is no longer an issue as the increased rubber on our new wheels absorbs the impact.
Since Oct 13th 2020, there was slightly change of the Ranger X2 motors with better power than before , 33kv motors with 33kv esc program. The production serial number for Ranger X2 is from RX102934.Please confirm with our tech support if plan to upgrade or replace your motors for your Ranger x2 to make sure you get the correct parts.
Your product is great even after braking my arm i still ride. i am 54 years old and my wife keeps trying to thorw the board into the trash but i keep taking it out thank you and i am a costumer for life
GREAT new wheels for the front for such great traction after long runs in the city!
This board has been a blessing ever since I got it a year ago! I wanted to get the new ranger X3 but my wife would kill me LOL, so I got new Wheels instead. The only thing that I saw crown with the wheels when I took them off was I accidentally stripped all the screws, so now I don't know how to get them off LOL. We bought this kit for it but I don't think it's going to work. Any ideas? LOL. I'm a 4 year recovering alcoholic and it's very hard for me to sleep at night so I skate with music at 2 a.m. LOL. You guys have really helped me a lot over the years and I really appreciate it! Happy Valentine's Day and keep making badass skateboards!!!
Great service, fast delivery i live in Canada took less than 3 weeks ! and BF took good care to send me a video to how to change tires on Ranger X2 thanks to BF team from Michel in Quebec
I tires still makes noises at higher speeds, but the weight reduction is very nice and they look good. The bearings needs to be lubed a lot more. Mine didnt have much on them.
Big time improvement real comfortable ride plus plus lighter! Would like to see the same done for the rear wheels at least tire wise. But I'm enjoying the board more with this big improvement. Awesome!
Save $0.00 USD
Wheels size: 96mm
Back Wheel hub motor sleeves fit: Backfire G2 Black, G2 Galaxy, G3 plus, G3, Mini Electric Skateboard
Front Wheels: regular Longboard wheels fit any longboards, front wheels use 608 high speed bearings inside. ( bearing installed)
I love my board… I’m a plus size person and I still have no issues with my board
Nice to have
Love you my new tires wish I had more boards to add to my tires lol
Bought these wheels and put them on the same time I changed the hub motor beatings. Love em!
love them their good to slide in lol I order some about a month ago and they're already worn out lol but going to order more.
These new tires are on point hi speed no problem
Well built. But I personally disassembled the motors and put quality wheel bearing grease in the bearings and that's how I keep it going. It would have frozen miles ago with the grease that's was used for assembly in the bearings. And as far as noises or vibrations make sure everything is tight itl run like a top best and only electric longboard I have owned! And won't be switching brands anytime soon or ever for the foreseeable future.
I'm not sure but I bought the new set of wheels cuz I thought one of the bearings was going out but I think it's the shaft on the truck because with the new set of tires still do the same thing has a noise on one side and it doesn't spin as much as the other side spins but overall I've already put 200 and something miles on the skateboard and I've had it for a month and a week
The black wheels are awesome compliment the G3plus black board and I got the black wheel hub covers to
Good but not durable enough
I bought these so I could have a balance between acceleration and speed. They're lots more comfortable than 85s and are a great option for hub boards.
DIY till the day I DIE. Great wheels! I was chewing through my 85s too quickly but the 96s are holding strong after a few hundred miles.
DKP Truck for Ranger X2 & X3 & Hammer
Save $-40.00 USD
Double kingpin truck which fit Backfire Ranger X2 , X3 , Hammer and Hammer Sledge .
The front Axle is the same for all three models with 9.5mm diameter (new front wheel with the 1614 bearings in the wheel), except the very 1st batch of Ranger X1 back in Nov. 2018 which was using the old front wheels with a square part.
The back axle now fits both Ranger x2 and X3. However, it is different from the batch before May 2020 (Orders of the Ranger X2 since early May 2020 received units with new motor axles that have a thicker square mounting point on the trucks. This is because we upgraded to 32kv motors from the old 28kv motors. This means the Ranger X2 had a little more torque than before)
The baseplates for the double kingpin truck are the same for both front and back.
The bushings inside the truck are stock bushings, with hardness close to 96A. Bushing color is yellow in Ranger X2, and the bushing color is red in Ranger X3. There are no quality or hardness differences with two different colors. Bushings colors are Black in Hammer and Hammer Sledge, the hardness is around 98A. If there are production running changes in bushings colors, we will update again in the future.
Ranger truck axles do not fit the wheels with 608 bearings in G2, G3,G3 plus or Zealot Wheels.
not whats shown in the pictures online due to the bushings being a different color and extremely soft
It does not fit the wheels of my X1. This is the second order where you guys' ads do not correspond to what I have.
Hi Backfire. Quick question… I lost the locknut on the front left wheel of my Ranger X3. I would like to know if it can be replaced by any locknut that fits in since you do not sell them in here?
Thanks in advance.
I was a quick and easy purchase. Trucks work wonderful.. ..
Arrived quickly, fits well, works as it should.
Very well designed and built.
the first set i ordered did not have wire cover
It's a perfect fit. Well made and matches the board.

The tire fits on Original Ranger X1 back wheels and front wheels. It does NOT fit the new Ranger X2 front wheel.
USA customers could select ship from USA warehouse. Other countries please select ship from China warehouse.
Very prompt and always curtious .
I own a X1 since early 2019 ,has been putting l lot of miles on it. I purchased first set of replacement tires with the board just like the original ones on the board. Recently I purchased another set which Backfire told me it was improved. I love them so far.
Wish they matched the new front tire.
If this is for 1 tire then it's over priced. I'm already needing 4.
450w Hub Motors For Backfire G3 or Mini
Save $10.00 USD
These 450w generation three motors are working perfectly with smooth speed and brake control, special programmed for Backfire G3 and Mini electric skateboards.
Power system :
They fit Backfire Mini and G3 models, working under the 12s1p or 12s2p power system with 50.4v input.
Connectors: MR30 plug are for V2 motors before June 2020. After June 2020, we updated from Mr30 plug to 9 pin plugs for Motors and Esc as the V3.
Mini Motors and Esc remains using MR30 plugs. However, after Sept. 29 2020, Mini motor and esc have also been upgraded from V2 to V3 with MR30 plugs.
The Back motor set include:
1 Back Truck set
Two 450w motors with back wheel sleeves installed
The single motor without sleeve include:
1 single motor without sleeve, screws or hardware.
Socket bolts break inside the hub motor plate, so you can’t get them out. Buyer Beware I made the mistake of buying extra hub motors and that didn’t fix the issue. Bolts either fall out or snap!
Awful experience. Buy with care, if you have the older generation G3, this will NOT work for you. You will also be required to replace the ECS. However, once you get this it will still not be compatible as the JST connectors for the LED light don't match up. Backfire will offer you an additional kit for that at an additional cost. If you don't know all this upfront as it's not disclosed or documented anywhere it is likely that you'll have to pay the expensive shipping costs. Beware if you're an international customer as you may also get import charges. Customer support has also been awful, unresponsive and not forthcoming or knowledgeable enough to provide a complete solution in the first instance, they seem more interested in selling you more products in a piece meal fashion.
They work really well.
Exactly what I needed. Thanks
My old hub motors were grinding and had a lot of resistance, so I purchased two new ones. Installation was not hard, and the board is back to its old self again. Make sure to tighten those screws though when putting wheels on! I lost two ;)
Backfire support has always been quick to respond to my emails. They really look out for the customer and help in any way they can. Unlike other brands they have a US warehouse meaning you get your parts faster and back riding sooner! I look forward to their future products and love my G3. If you think I'm joking just look at my odometer! 730 miles
These motors got my board back to brand new performance
Great customer service with quick shipping. I like the plug in option for these motors although the plug section is a bit big (long). I do like the fact that I can now take off the trucks without removing the ESC case or vice versa. This is definitely a design improvement. Thank you Backfire!
I ordered motors just In case the ones I have now goes bad. Its always good to have extra parts on hand.
Great product.. worked as expected
I really love how easy it is to switch out the motor! No removing the esc cover. Truly plug and play. It took about ten minutes and works perfectly. Not surprising though, I've never been disappointed with any purchase from backfire.
As new !
Love it backfire you guys really came in clutch and hooked it up when I needed it most. Above and beyond!
Overall is nice but can improve with some details on painting. It doesn’t seem to keep well and some scratched along. Haven’t tried to used it yet, but hope it’s great!
Venom Bushings Barrel & Cone Shape for Backfire Longboards
Save $0.00 USD
Plug Barrel for Caliber Trucks
Plug Barrel Bushings for Caliber Trucks are designed to remove lateral play from the truck by filling the gaps between the hanger and the kingpin. Resulting in a quicker return to center, increased responsiveness, and a more direct turning feel over a traditional barrel bushing. Now available in 5 different durometers in our classic HPF formula! They will fit Backfire Regular longboards, Electric Longboard Models: G2, G3, G3 PLUS, Mini, Zealot and Zealot S.
HPF Formula: 85a – Yellow 87a – Purple 90a – Red 93a – Green 95a – Glow in the Dark
Standard Bushings (Barrel / Cone)
The idea behind the standard pack is “Best of both worlds”. The barrel on the bottom to give you solid stability, and the cone on top to deliver ridiculous turn. This combo is often used by people who want to ride a juicy setup, but sometimes encounter the odd massive hill. Barrels: .6″ tall x .97″ wide Cones: .6″ tall x .93″/.65″ wide
HPF Formula: 78a – Blue 81a – Orange 85a – Yellow 87a – Purple 90a – Red 93a – Green 95a – Glow in the Dark 97a – Pink
These Venom bushings immediately improved the performance of my Backfire Zealot S. I definitely recommend them .
My weight is 175. Green bushings on board side and red bushings on roadside perfect set up. Both stability and maneuverability are much better.
These soft glow in the dark bushing ride like magic and suit my carving style like a dream.
They worked great, easy replacement. Higher stability. Would highly recommend.
I tryied these bushing just to try something new. Fast delivery and not bad bushings. I will going back to red 90A but they are fun
Made my ride so much more stable. Highly recommend.
Nice and stable, but still not to hard to turn. Very smooth! Got them in 180mm Bear gen 6, and they fit perfect!
Works perfectly with my Bear gen 6 155mm trucks! Easy to turn yet stable.

Pulley: Including 1 pair of 55 teeth pulleys with bearings pre-installed. This pulley only works with the 160 wheels, NOT with cloud wheels or other street wheels directly. To change wheels, you need to change belt and pulley as well.

Rubber Tires: 4 pieces of 160mm rubber tires only
Inner Tubes: 4 pieces of inner tubes only. Disclaimer: Ship without air pumped in, users have to pump the air In the recommended PSI.
I never got them, when I tracked them on the app it took a while to get to my city and then it says they were returned, so I would either like a refund or my belts please resent to me without additional charge thank you. I love the Hammer though amazing board
Still the best place to order these
Not great for DIY. I understand the product is meant to repair/replace wheels on the Hammer board. But I just wanted offroad wheels. When I got it, the tires were exactly what I expected, except bearing sizes and holes are bigger, so I had to buy specially sized bearings. Was a pain to deal with but got through it.
For $150? I expect the wheels/rims set to come with belts and pulleys. The inner tubes/tires were also all the same orientation, so 2 of them were installed wrong and I have to flip them around... I'm not impressed with this purchase.
Tubes at a reasonable price without waiting on the slowboat from china
Super Fast shipping as always from Backfire. These tubes are getting harder to find and they are always in stock and the right size!

One back truck set (if order the motor set, NOT included in the single motor option)
Two 350W In-Hub Motors with 83mm or 96mm sleeves based on selection
Front Caliber II Truck and front wheels are NOT included.
These are the ones. The G2t is a little harder to find cloud wheels for but I think it’s probably the only thing I’d change about it. Sidewalk cracks and Pot holes are a little unforgiving.
This is the 3rd motor I’ve bought from backfire. Customer service is second to none. Will buy again. I’m just waiting for the X3 to go on sale now
I wanted a G2T, with that R2 remote, but I wanted to make the board myself this time. I have several longboards and my fiberglass Sector-9 longboard has a very nice flex for carving. So, I purchased the G2T R2 remote/ESC upgrade to install on my G2-2019, and I purchased a set of G2T hub motors and wheels upgrade kit (and front trucks). The decision to go with Backfire components was not an easy one. I considered and searched Amazon for cheaper alternatives to getting a power train for this home-made board I wanted to make. But, they all seemed cheap or had low ratings and low performance numbers, and very short warranty periods. And I just love my Backfire G2-2019, I put at least 10 miles per day on it. Anyway, so I bought the Backfire hub motors. I am so glad I did this. I now have 2 Backfire e-Longboards - the original G2-2019 I purchased on the Backfire black/gold deck, and the second board on a flexy Sector-9 deck that I Frankensteined into existence. So, even for the DIY-er I highly recommend using Backfire components.
600W Hub Motors For Backfire G3 Plus
Save $-229.00 USD
These generation three 600w motors are working perfectly with strong acceleration and breaks, special programmed for Backfire G3 Plus. For DIY or people who have Backfire G3: There are different programs and different hall sensors, 600w Motors do not work with G3 esc, or other ESC directly. You will need the g3 plus esc to work with the 600w motors.
Power system :
They fit Backfire G3 Plus models, working under the 12s1p or 12s2p power system with 50.4v input.
Connectors: MR30 plug or 9 Pin (Since June 2020, we upgrade motor and esc wires to 9 pin plugs in production, please select the correct option for your board)
The Back Motor Set Include:
1 Back Caliber II Truck set
Two 600w motors with back wheel sleeves installed
I’m 150lbs so when I saw double the input on these 600w motors compared to my stock ones, I just knew I had to get them. Riding uphill has never been easier. Leaves no impact on my battery and the extra torque gives me exactly what I need to make it through tough terrain during my rides.
One of the motors is broken. It clicks when I run it. it is a Lou’s click at a steady rhythm. I have emailed the company three times to see if i can get it replaced. I have not heard anything back. Radio silence.
Please reach out to me. Or, send me a new motor with a pre-paid return label so I can return the clicking one.
Ed. Mobile- 469-714-1630.
I received only the motor wheels and had to contact backfire and request the front wheels and truck, which took an additional week to arrive. That being said, they did make it right at no charge to me, so I'm satisfied.
I'm impressed by how powerful these hubs are with such small wires and MR30 connectors. I made my own 5.5mm bullet to mr30 connectors (they look like little squids lol) and hooked these up to the maker-x goFOC DV6. Motor detection went smoothly with both motors coming in at just over 30A.
I still feel kinda iffy when I compare the mr30 to . . well, any other connector. Maybe upgrade the connectors to mr60 just to make them a little more finger / soldering iron friendly?
I'm sure I can do 30mph on my 12s2p P42A DIY battery.

This board is amazing for the price. I never had a problem with it. I ride in all kind of conditions including wet ground and some puddles. After 600 km one bearing on the back went bad (just noisy, was still working good). Very easy to replace the entire unit. I tried to replace the bearing only but it is in there pretty secure. I got to remove it but did more damage than good! So ended up switching entire motor. Good lesson!
I love them but how ever both of my esc's my backfire g2 and galaxy went out yesterday . but as you can see I ordered the G3 but I had to order it on Amazon order# 111-8210648-8348230
Motor came quick as always and it was a easy off and on install thanks guys! You Always take care a me!
Hub Motor for Ranger X2
Save $15.00 USD
The hub motor is special designed for Backfire Ranger X2
1200W In-hub motor
6'' off road Tire is pre-installed, 165mm wheels.
Back axle is included (if order the motor set only)
Single Motor has the tire installed as well
Since Oct 13th 2020, there are slightly change of the Ranger X2 motors with better power than before , 33kv motors with 33kv esc program. The production serial number for Ranger X2 is from RX102934. Please confirm with our tech support if plan to upgrade or replace your motors for your Ranger x2 to make sure you get the correct parts. 33kv motors and 32kv motors are using different hall line sequences , so they are not swappable, you need specific esc to work with the right motors.
Below is the upgrade kit for our previous Ranger X2 users, you will get a set of 33KV motors and one 33kv esc to change your Ranger X2 from previous 32 kv to 33kv set.
X1 to X2 upgrade motors are great, the difference in the weight of the board is very noticeable. I feel more torque and the motors are quieter.
Motors work great, The remote is a separate purchase and is not included with the upgrade kit. Brakes are better and board is quite and lighter than the ranger X1. Only critique is that the remote only reads the charging level of the remote itself and shows the board has no charge when it does. It also has the charge indicators switched around.
Was told the upgrade kit would enable me to use the turbo mode on the new remote I also purchased. When installed turbo function did not work and was then told the factory states that turbo mode is not available for the upgrade. Had to send all back and now have a connectivity issue with the board. Sending video today
Its very silent and fast !!
quiet motors and great torque, less mechanical drag like belt drives
Backfire Electric Skateboard Mudguards for Ranger X1 / X2 / X3
Bought and installed these bad boys on a Ranger X2. TLDR: manufacturing and design leave a lot to be desired..
They work as intended.
They look pretty cool.
They showed up quickly.
A quarter of the screw holes required additional boring.
There was no spacer to measure or maintain distance between guards and wheels.
The whole system squeaks, a millimeter of rubber on the mounting point would have prevented this.
The design of the rear guards prevent me from dragging the board behind me.
Left me with the impression that this part was outsourced and never really tested.
The back ones don't seem to fit right even after taking the wire cover off. Nothing a couple zip ties couldn't fix. Now mud can never dirty these beautiful legs again. I am pretty much unstoppable.
I actually bought it for a different brand of board! But it is great quality. Very durable so far because I do ride offroad trails as well where there's plenty of tree roots. And sooo far.... it's still on and nothing broke. I bought it actually for water and wet debri always flying all over Me! But this keeps 85% of all that from getting on me! Great product Backfire!
They do fit on the rear trucks. I’m glad I saw the response that the little covers on the rear truck wire have to be removed. Then the mudguard plate replaces that and holds the wire in place. They fit perfectly and work very well. I live in a pretty rainy area and the roads stay wet almost all winter. These will keep the water and debris from flying all over.
I think the rear mudguards Maybe don't fit over these rubber bits? Having such a rough time. Front ones installed easily
I can’t find a way to get the rear mudguards onto the board and there is no videos anywhere that exist to help me out
I just cannot make the rear mudguards to fit. I don't know how it should and there's no video or anything on the internet explaining how. C'mon backfire.
Fits perfectly on my Ranger X2. Definitely worth the price considering the mess I had on my legs without them. I can’t wait to go thru the water after a rain storm. Enjoy
