We have now formulated a new test for the electric skateboard…
Hub Motors Versus a Belt Driven System on Sandy terrain…
To our surprise, the belt motor only ran for a few seconds in the sand, before it died, we found the sand that was cast up by the wheel, lodged in the gap between the belt and the synchronous wheel, causing the system to fail.
So we took apart the drive system to have a look…
You could clearly see that there is a lot of sand on the belt, which makes the whole gearing system not fit well with the belt.
The sand in fact caused the belt to detach…
We could also see that there is a lot sandstone residue within the gear parts.
However, in the process of eboarding in the wild, you will encounter various deposits, such as sand, dirt & water
The fully-sealed structure of the backfire rangerX2 will never encounter these problems

Can Backfire be used like a normal skateboard when it’s out of power?
Yes, our boards are totally push friendly and will ride like a traditional skateboard when not on the throttle or when there is no battery.
Is my Backfire board waterproof?
The waterproof level of Backfire boards is IP55.
Riding over small puddles will not damage the board, nor will riding in light rain, however never submerge the board in the water and stop riding if the conditions lead to standing water on roads or track.
When you have finished riding in wet conditions it’s important to dry the board off with a rag and then spin the wheels using the motor and remote for two minutes to remove any access water. If the board did go through deeper standing water it may be a good idea to remove the outer case and gentle towel dry any visible water and then leave the board in a warm dry place.
Never leave a wet board upside down in the damp or this can cause the water to bypass the seal and ingress into the electronics. Your remote should also be kept dry and warm after use in the rain.
