Xapham - Red Ember Boards Xapham deck | Surfrodz RKPs | Dual Psychotiller PowerPlant Motors | PT Mounts | 10S4P DIY'd battery | Ollin VESCs | PT sixshooters

I spend most of my eks8 shop time in my workshop making decks… so much that lately I had been neglecting my own personal build! I’ve been riding whatever hacked together board I had at the time, including the recently decommissioned original village build

The amazing ESK8 Renegade weekend was what I needed to motivate me to get all my parts together to finally finish this build I had been planning for a while now!

The Recipe:

  • red Ember boards Xapham deck - this shape is one I always wanted to try and I’m stoked to finally have it out there!
  • @psychotiller sixshooters, mounts, pulleys, belts, and motors
  • @OllinBoardCompany 4.12 VESCs - these are still rocking and I’ve had them for years!
  • Surfrodz RKPs at 45D 80mm axles (10mm OD)
  • @Alphamail (riptidesports) double barrel bushings and pivot cups
  • 10S4P battery I made in the shop - Samsung 25Rs and a Suupower 60A BMS
  • @MasterCho carbon fiber enclosure and GT2B remote mod
  • Front and rear shredlights from that group buy @Michaelinvegas ran a while back
  • Skull valve caps because the darkness will consume you

Other details Gearing is 16Tx60T on 6 inch wheels for a theoretical top speed of 36MPH. ERPM capped to limit speed to around 27MPH.

FOC w sensored motors = smooth baby smooth!

Red fender caps because @Sender made me do it :slight_smile:

Proudest moment (besides the deck) was cutting a perfect window for the battery indicator by hand w a dremel tool… I had to summon @longhairedboy’s god-like dremel powers for a moment by casting a steezcantation. It’s a thing!

If BC Rich stopped making guitars and ventured into the skateboard world, that’s exactly what their decks would look like! Sick!

Thats exactly what I was thinking!

The deck I designed is similar, but the tip/tail is modeled after a Gibson Headstock!

@treenutter, once again, your work is amazing!

I added a BT module from @JLabs - it was easy to install - using the xmatic app and it is really helpful to see a more accurate battery reading and other metrics.

Also, better fender caps because @Sender 's influence is strong!
