        Did you have any issues with vibration and the sound produced by the rigid Carbon fiber board? That is my only hesitation at the moment. Cheers

          Thanks for the upload, looks like a great board, only question, what's she like going uphill? Would love to see that side of things stressed out to the max.

          You got 12 miles right not 12 km ?

            My mini kt 6ah 30q says 12 miles range but i only ever get around 12km. Being around 90k, 6 foot 2 and sticking around 15 to 18mph kills the range. When you see reviews getting 28km thats crawling around at 12mph. Wish id known this as i would have got the 8ah battery.

                Everything other the top is amazing. You guys should think of another way to access the battery

                Nice to hear Jay being impressed and since we know he hates the Boosted Mini with its superior control, power, quality and remote this would be something up you alley even with hubs and rock hard wheels.

                  I don’t hate the booster mini at all. It’s a great board. However there’s plenty of other “mini” options out there worth taking a look at.

                Can’t wait to get my hands on this board! Did yours come with the shock absorbing grip tape? Also, where did you order your thousand helmet from in australia? Yew

                  Jay Boston   1 weeks back

                  Yo! Not sure on the grip tape however feet were fine after 15km ride. Helmet direct from evolve skateboards.

                Never buy hub motor boards. You will regret not being able to change wheels.

                  @Backfire Boards you can change the sleeves and even switch to bigger wheels

                  The back hub motor wheels have replaceable sleeves.

                    Slap a boosted logo on it and it would sell for $1600

                      How about riding comparison with Evolve Stoke. Is the Stoke much smoother?

                        Great idea! I’ve got my hands on a stoke too. I’ll do a comparison soon!

                          I like that a lot of youtubers make reviews on the Backfire Mini. I watched some videos and i think its the best on the market for that price right now.
