The Balrog comes in two variations: the X and the Z. The primary difference is that the X is powered by belt-driven motors, whereas the Z–shown here– is driven by direct drive motors.
Our Balrog Z is a new evolution of the Balrog line and our first direct drive (DD) board. While it’s still as epic as the mythic beast, it produces less road noise than the X and requires no maintenance. It’s fierce on all terrains with its powerful dual 1300W DD motors that scream up to 3000W during peak acceleration. With a choice of either 110 mm rubber wheels or our newly innovated 105 mm Luminous wheels, you'll cruise over cracks, bumps, pebbles, and sticks with ease and comfort, especially since they are paired with the Balrog’s signature comfortable, flexible, shock-absorbing bamboo deck. Finally, the newly upgraded LG M50LT 15Ah battery delivers miles of range to ensure your adventures go far…with enough juice to get home!

We've created a new set of wheels for the Balrog Z: the B-One 105 mm Luminous.With riding characteristics that are similar to Cloudwheels, ours features in-built LED lights that shine a luminous red glow to highlight your path. If you prefer a larger diameter wheel that isn't as flashy, we still offer 110 mm rubber wheels that provide extra cushioning.
We’ve upgraded the Balrogs’ batteries with one of the best used in the field: a M50LT LG. Being one of the most well-known battery manufacturers in the world, LG creates some of the finest 21700 cells, which are arranged in a 12S3P configuration to provide the Balrogs with 666Wh of demonly power to get you to your destination faster than the competition, and enough range to ensure you get home…on your board.
|ESC||Our updated Balrogs were given a new Hobbywing ESC so acceleration and braking will be smoother and more responsive while a strong 2.4Ghz wireless signal is continuously maintained, preventing any accidents from runaway boards.|
Both Balrogs have been outfitted with conventional kingpin (CKP) / TKP trucks, which provide greater stability at higher speeds without any oversteer. When coupled with our flexible bamboo deck, these trucks provide a skating experience that is as close to longboarding–or even surfing–as you can get.
