I bought a ownboard about 4 months ago and changed the bms because the battery was faulty the thing you must know when buying a ownboard with a 13s4p battery is that you cant replace it so if its dead all your board is please be carefull when buying these guys dont care if your board works or not !!!
Just got mine delivered 3 days ago, and I gotta say it's a fabulous board. truck dont even need to be super tight to be stable at high speed. haven't needed to charge the battery yet even after 3 days of riding. only advice is dont get the cloudwheels, they are a bit of a death trap on even slightly damp roads.
Great looking board. There are some minor blemishes from manufacturing but overall it has been good to me so far. I have about 220 miles on it in the last month.
It is so dang fast. I’ve been cruising everywhere at 30mph even on the hills.
Very stable and fast
Great handle for a good price. Definitely must have for those, who want to be mobile with their eskate
Use it to get to and from work, makes my commute fun rather than boring in a car or too long walking, also go for random rips around town, this is more fun than snowboarding out west (I find) feels very similar to powder snowboarding... love both wheels, had a bearing fail on an AT wheel after 30km, OB are sending me a new set.
Easy to throw on and match the motors perfectly its basically just all the way back to have the belts at perfect tightness. They grip fairly well at fast speeds and very soft on sidewalks. In rougher terrain advise some caution like with all wheels. no problems using the grass with these if needed I think these wheels are certainly worth trying!
Awesome product and second to none service. Can’t recommend enough everything was absolutely on point from beginning to end. Sally from customer service was amazing to deal with as I had a few reservations in regards to the postage as I’ve never had a good experience with Aramex. This experience was however was perfect and I had my products earlier than anticipated. Keep up the fantastic work and I’ll definitely be back! Thank you!!
Been looking for awhile.. found this board and all i have to say that is amazing et crazy fast.. rode it a few time already and i can say it’s a long range board.. more that enough for me! It took a couple ride to adjust the stiffness of the bushings.. as I’m 215lbs and the board was too soft for high speed.. (wobble) now can’t wait to try other kind of wheel..
Add some lights for night ride and it’s awesome
I'm a 58 year old geezer re-living my skateboard youth -- without all the huffing and puffing. This is the second electric skateboard I've owned. The other board (from a different brand) was a carbon fiber, DKP with direct drive.
It took several long rides for me a make the adjustment because this board has very different handling characteristics. The acceleration and braking are much stronger, and the speed is off the charts. And I'm kind of scared to try the "pro" mode because level 3 is still trying it's best to throw me --- haven't fallen yet, though. Moreover, the handling is remarkably stable, and I find myself at speeds I wouldn't ordinarily cruise at.
Also, I'm six foot, 205 lbs and the board doesn't seem to have any problem handling my weight.
Now to be totally honest, I really miss the peace and quiet of my old board's direct drive, and I really wish Ownboard made a direct drive version because there is no drive train vibration and the silence makes it easy to go Zen when I'm riding --- anything above 20 mph and it does start to get loud.
I know that going direct direct creates it's own issues because in order to manufacture one that is sturdy enough to handle my weight would require a thicker axle which means bigger bearings that won't fit today's wheels (or motors..?).
But I think that if Ownboard were to lead the way with a direct drive that had motors and wheels that could handle a thick axle, it would open up an exclusive market that, currently, is not being exploited, which is a sturdy board that caters to the heavier American rider.
Otherwise, I love the board. Great job Ownboard!
Just wish it used same charger as zeus pro
My son and I bought a Bamboo Pro and a Zeus Pro respectfully to ride all around town together. Both boards are fantastic... Fast, stable and good build quality all at a great price. We love em!
Great board! So happy I opted for the bigger battery, I love the range and it goes crazy fast! There’s like almost no belt drag and it’s quieter than traditional belt powered boards, 10/10!!
This kit is a great starter if you want to switch from hub motor to belt drive. Is is a bit expensive but overall pretty worth it
I’ve been skating since the 70’s and over the last 5-6 years have been riding mostly Esk8 boards . I’ve owned a number of different brands from OG boosted to recent lacroix boards and feel I’ve owned enough variations to offer an accurate honest opinion.
I’ve now done around 50 miles on my Zeus Pro and I can safely say it’s a great board and awesome value. I went for the 2 in 1 3k Carbon finish as I had heard that the Forge Carbon version had some issues with finish but I think this was just one batch and therefore I would hesitant to by a forged version if I bought again . The trucks,bearings and and overall fit / finish are very good . Performance is great and it’s super stable at the higher end speeds ,good brakes with a smooth power delivery . I had wondered if the TKP trucks would be not so great for carving but they perform fantastically. I went for the better known P42 cells and the battery gives great range and very minimal sag .The only one small issue I had was a couple of the bash bar rod threads were not so great but I contacted Ownboard via WhatsApp and as per usual they replied within hours and agreed to replace the parts in question without any issues. So overall I’m very happy with the board and service they offer .
If your on the fence don’t delay ,just get one .
