This tutorial will show you how simple it is to change between Street and AT wheels on the new MetroboardX Electric Skateboard! In 15 minutes or less you can easily swap between wheel types depending on your riding style and the terrain you plan on riding. We designed the MetroboardX Electric Longboard to be super user-friendly so that even the “technically-challenged” can easily maintain their board. One example is the built in automatic belt tensioner that makes swapping out wheels and replacing belts a breeze for even the novice rider! This is just one of the many easy to use features on the MetroboardX Electric Skateboard!
