This B-one Balrog Direct Drive has been amazing

I have had this board for around 2 months now and I have enjoyed every ride, Smooth acceleration, but you can still feel it in 4th gear full throttle, smooth braking that's strong when you need it to be, so at full brake it will come to skidding stop which I appreciate. The trucks are awesome, the way they put them together feels great, it has a reliable return to center when carving, and I've been able to comfortably cruise up to 40-45kph before more than a casual stance was required to prevent a speed wobble. The board itself has the perfect amount of flex and concave for my feet, and has made a real difference riding on the rougher roads, I'm 5'11, 167lbs, size 11-12 shoes. So if you're close to that you'll have a great time with the board, haven't had a chance to do a full range test, but living in a small town it has ample range, more than I need. My one and only "con" if you could call it that is how heavy the board is for carrying it around, I know that comes with the territory but I do find myself wishing I had ordered a handle with the board, more so a personal gripe with myself for not grabbing one. I do appreciate that there is no grip tape in the center though, as it saves your clothing a bit when you are carrying it up against your side. So all in all I have no real complaints about this board, 2 months in and I havent yet had to reapply any loctite to any of the screws, habit has me checking between rides so when tightening I have noticed next to no movement. Everything about it has been a positive experience, right up to the very first questions I had for customer service when I was getting ready to buy the board, They were extremely responsive never taking any longer than 12 hours to reply despite being on the other side of the planet from Canada. So if you are looking for a reliable Direct Drive board with great customer service behind it, These guys have my vote. 5 Stars %100

Motor

Super motor 👍👍👍

What a machine!

I really enjoy the torque of this beast. The board is super stable and fast. Really like the forged carbon deck design. Things I would like to be improved: postprocessing of the deck (better polishing and removal of the pinholes), grip tape adhesive, controlled discharging when not in use (like Exway boards).

Excellent mais

Excellente planche

Les points fort :

Excellent carving
Super silencieuse
Autonomie au top
Très bonne accélération
Freinage super smooth mais efficace

Les point faibles :

Très mauvais remote, aucune configuration possible
Impossible de voir l'état des cellules de la planche
Pas d'application mobile
L'écran se trouve dans la paume de la main impossible de voir a combien on roule
Le boutton de changement de mode de vitesse gère aussi la marche arrière, 1 clic change le mode, deux clics change le sens des moteurs, je vous laisse imaginer quand vous voulez rapidement passer du mode 2 a 4 ...

Conclusion

Excellent raport qualité

Wheels

They look good but unfortunately can’t try then out as we are still waiting on the skateboard to arrive . It is still on the ship but we have heard that finally it has docked in Auckland . So maybe soon we might get to try the board and the wheels .

Replacement bushings

Got some replacement bushings. Round, black, much like the old ones. They seem to work well. Quick delivery for China to NZ. A little over a week

Titan 4 WD

Excellent Board with high Power . Drive it with 200 Offroad Tires . Better than my Exway Pro !!

DKP trucks

Carving with DKP trucks is much deeper and smoother turns than standard trucks.. speed wobbles are the only issue . If you are a speed demon stick with standard trucks

TKP Baseplate

Brought a replacement as I snapped my rear kingpin. This is probably inevitable as I have been doing serious offroad more suited to a mountainboard. Good gear at a good price (with good customer service).

Top 👍

Super sensation 👍
Vraiment comptant de mon achat 👌

Awesome board

a GREAT VALUE. perfect mixture of carve, stability, power and range. all under $900 . and its even better with street wheels!

I would give 5 stars but...

Straight-up, this Titan X 2wd, 2 in 1 deserves 5 stars for both customer support and overall field-use of the board. I gave a 4 star rating based on a few technicalities. This Titan X 2wd has enough torque to be dangerous for any rider without experience. The stability while riding general outdoor paved surfaces such as sidewalks, walk/bike trails and roads, is that of cheat codes in a video game. I'll simply never crash due to speed wobble. I can't imagine how anybody has. If anybody has... The top end speed depends on your wheel type and size as well as your pulley type. The padded grip tape is incredibly comfortable. Vibrations can really only be felt on PU wheels. The integrated brake light makes every bit of difference in group rides at night. It's very noticeable and very cool looking. The board is very diy friendly and easy to disassemble. The carbon fiber finish is very professional. CONS: Loose hardware upon receipt, grip tape peeling off upon unboxing, defective pulley on first ride scheduled to be 20mi and I had to call for a ride and get picked up half way through. (Customer service sent 2 new pulleys with bearings) odometer resets after charging unless you exclusively power the board on and off via the button on the board and not the remote. Just yesterday, after 35 days of ownership and around 60 mi, my left rear cloud wheel bearing fell apart. I refuse to ride off road and cannot comment on that for review.

ESC replacement after 1000 Km

After about 1000 km of good service from the ESC, one of the motors was no longer controlled correctly. At first I suspected the plug connection between the motor and ESC as the cause (since they were carbonized because the current transmitted, was probably to high for the plugs), but the electronic was defective. Until now the ESC was only glued in, no screws to hold it in place and ensure good contact with the heat sink. Overheating and vibrations probably caused the defect, based on the defect described above. The new ESC was delivered to me with a mounting plate, which now ensures a mechanical screw connection between the ESC, board and heat sink. A good thing, but unfortunately the mounting holes on the new plate are inaccurate, with threads that are too small and not deep enough. So some work on my part was necessary, which somewhat dampened my joy about the new mounting plate.

Conclusion: The ESC itself is really good (except for the motor connector, which is too weak in terms of current), the new attachment (mounting plate) to the board is still a tinker/patch. Please correct that! The first few trips went well, no problems. But I can only really check this if I open the lid from above, i.e. remove the griptape (which is then no longer usable). Let's hope everything is still on place regarding ESC mounting, when I replaced my worn out grip tape. Keep the fingers crossed!

Parts list for an ESC replacement:
- ESC
- ESC mounting plate with screws (if not already present) - New heat sink (which also contains power button and charging port) with threaded holes to mount the mounting plate
- Heat conductive mat between mounting plate and ESC
- Thermal paste between mounting plate and heatsink
- Screws for heat sinks
- New grip tape
- Sealing material to seal ESC motor cables (which are routed to the outside).
- Cable ties for motor cable routing

What a great Eskate!

I am super impressed with the Titan X! It has long range with great stability as well as carvability. Also, B-One customer service is 2nd to none. Thanks! ⚡️🛹🤙🏻

Very nice

Very satisfied and...

I'm very satisfied with my purchase which was greatly influenced by Fred from @Esk8unity on YouTube. I also convinced my best friend to by one too and he is also very satisfied although his order took over a month.

Extremely happy with this purchase!

I should start with saying I'm around 200 lbs and in my mid 50's. No boarding experience of any type, other that with a cheap Kmart skateboard in the 70's as a kid. I was really getting into e-scooters recently and saw a favorite YT personality had decided to pick up an esk8. I wasn't initially interested, but was very interested by the end of the video. I quickly found Fred's YT channel and realized he really knew esk8's and seem to love the Titan X, so I bought one (with the 2 in 1) on a whim. Within 15 minutes I was carving back and forth with decent confidence on the first outing and almost immediately fell in love with this board (using the 150mm AT wheels). My e-scoots have sat since. So far I'm really only using mode 1 and 2 as this board is insanely powerful in mode 3 & 4. I honestly can't imagine wanting to ride around on a regular basis in mode 4 (unless I had a death wish, lol!) This board will easily hit speeds in the upper modes which you're not running off if you lose it, so use some common sense as this is no toy! Although I will say the TKP trucks are very stable at high speeds and it was easy for me to ride right out of the box. The battery will easily outlast me for a day of riding, it just seemingly lasts forever. No mechanical issues or over heating on hot days so far. Yes, it's a little pricey, although looking at others in this category, it seemed to be very well priced for the performance compared to the competition. I should also mention the shipping was fast and no issues with shipping damage (even though it only came single boxed, but with great padding). Lots of nice accessories included as well. Speaking of unboxing, I was shocked how beautiful this board is in person! I guess in summary I will just say I'm beyond thrilled with this board and have zero regrets with choosing this esk8! If you're on the fence about this board, just buy it... it's awesome!

Good value fast board

Really comfortable board with good range. It's much lighter than a meepo hurricane. Love the concave shape, but wish the deck was a little stiffer. Acceleration is smooth and feels safe. Shipping was reasonablly fast (from EU warehouse to UK). Customer service was also excellent and they handled my queries quickly.

Buyers should request a handle be included as I think it's essential (they forgot to include in the original box). The angle on the motors and the motor guard mean you can't pull your board along holding the front trucks. A handle also makes it much easier to pick up the board from the floor.

Très bon skate, très bon service !

J'utilise mon Balrog Z depuis 3 semaines maintenant, et je suis super satisfait ! Les moteurs Direct Drive sont suffisamment puissants, pas de problème ! Et ils sont très silencieux, j'adore.
J'obtiens 50km d'autonomie en mode 2, et plus de 40km en mode 4, pour un rider de plus de 80kg, avec des roues caoutchouc 110mm, avec encore 1 barre sur le cadran d'autonomie.
J'ai fait une pointe à 48km/h en mode 4, et il était possible d'aller plus haut, frisson garanti. Aucun speed wobble. La planche et les axes sont très stables ..
La planche est très flexible, peut être un peu trop pour mon poids.

Je suis très satisfait de ce skate, de sa puissance suffisante, très silencieux, top speed pouvant aller surement à 50km/h, c'est largement suffisant pour moi, mais ce que j'aime le plus, c'est sa grande autonomie. Je ne voudrais pas d'un skate faisant moins. Le seul reproche, le rayon de braquage est très large. Ce sont des simple Kinpin, les bushing sont assez durs, et il est assez difficile de tourner.
J'ai commandé des bouchons plus softs chez Riptide, je les attends, je pense que cela cela facilitera le carving, reste a voir pur la stabilité.

Mais je voudrais un autre élément très important, pour lequel je suis très satisfait : Le service client !
Le transport a pris 1 mois, et j'ai été tenu informé régulièrement par Lily de B One.

Je vis sur une petite ile perdue au milieu de l'océan indien ( La Reunion ). Il n'y pas de magasin de skate électrique ici, et faire venir des objets électriques est compliqué et cher !
SI j'ai un problème, je suis tout seul pour le résoudre, ou les prix de transports sont malades.

2 jours après avoir reçu mon skate, j'ai eu un problème de déconnection entre la télécommande et l'ESC.
J'ai échangé avec le service client qui m'a aidé pendant toute une après midi à résoudre le problème.
Au final, ce n'était qu'un connecteur mal emboité.
Mais nous avons passé en revue toutes les possibilités, leur service a été patient, extrêmement réactif, et finalement efficace, mon problème a été résolu.

A l'origine, je penchais pour une Meepo, mais après avoir lu et entendu tous les avis négatifs sur leur service clients, et les bons commentaires à propos de B One, j'ai choisi B One, et je ne le regrette pas.
Je voulais partager avec vous cette expérience qui aurait pu etre un désastre, mais au final, pas du tout, grâce à leur service client excellent.
Un grand merci à Lily !

Great Board, Great Service, what else ?
Good Job B One

Awesome!

This is my 1st e-board. I have to admit that I thought e-boards were pretty lame. But, my mind was changed instantly after my first ride. I've only a couple of things I would change, due to personal preference -

I'd like the board to be "slightly" more stiff. Just a little. I'd also prefer that in addition to the double drop, that the board would have a slight "convex" shape that ran length wise. Maybe the convex shape would compensate for the flex.

1 thing is that the board didn't come with a manual. You'll have to go on line to view instructions and set up.

Other than that, I've put almost 100 miles and am always looking for a reason to go for a ride.
