Can a person, go from 70mm or 83mm to 90+mm without buying a new motor? Otherwise, it has the proprietary stigmata attached to it.
This isn't a hole lot of urathan on a 70mm hub motor 75 maybe but 80-93mm is great!
They way that I have designed the motor makes it a 3 min job to change the urathane wheel, you do not need to replace the motor, I have been in contact with LABEDA who make orangatang wheels and when I have the money for the mould cost I will be making wheels that are a perfect fit instead of modifying original wheels!
Bearings can be replaced.
Even the motor winding could be replaced to reduce replacment cost of the hole motor!
My goal is:
Create the best quality hub motor with the best performance and at the lowest price. The motor can already be adapted to I would say any but I havnt tested all so I say most 8mm longboard axel! Giving customers the most freedom with there decks!
The case in my photos mounts under the truck like a spacer and clips onto the safes of the deck onto the other side, if we continue with this as well as a carbon Fiber deck I feel we can give the option for many more riders to quickly add a motor and remove the motor to there original longboard deck reducing the cost for many tha havee to go out and buy a set of Paris or caliber trucks plus mounts when they already ride on bear trucks.
I hope that if my hub motor isn't the future then it is the step into the future towards a hover board of course.
