What's improved in V3 BoardUp

I heard a lot of great suggestions from users. Also of course problems that need to be improved. Here is the list of what we have improved.

  1. Bearings are in higher quality. can run quite longer.
  2. Wheel material improved. it is high re-bounce resilience, Together with better bearings. BoardUp is now can run 40-60% longer with one kick.
  3. Deck is slightly improved. stronger for later batch. supports wheel size 70mm, 75mm, 80mm,81mm,( width < 53mm)
  4. Riser pad is 2mm thicker. Now it is 4mm
  5. The truck is 4mm taller. and the kingpin is less tilt. so it can support sharper turn. Also the truck looks better then V2.
  6. The Middle hinge has both edges cut. Together with now the deck being 6mm higher. It is much less likely to touch the ground when making sharp turn unless it is next to the road high bump.
  7. Improved middle hinge makes locking more precise and tight. no wobble, won’t feel small gap between the locked two piece of hinge.
  8. Re-designed the kickpad, so that user can replace both truck with his/her favorite ones. and cable won’t snap no matter how big the kick force applied.
  9. Kicking and folding is easier. as the deck opening on the nose for kickpad is 6mm wider.
  10. Changed the way to adjust the cable tension. It is easier now. just turn the nut linked with cable end under the kickpad

Based on the feedback from V3 customers. They said I love V3 more.

Is the BoardUp longboard water proof?

Yes. While the materials are waterproof, water can rust away metal over time so we recommend drying your board after it gets wet. This will ultimately extend the life of the board and retain its durability.

How much weight can BoardUp handle?

While the board is in fact split in the middle, it doesn’t compromise on strength. BoardUp® is tested to withstand 400lbs.

Can I use custom wheels/trucks on my BoardUp?

Any version of BoardUp will accept standard-sized wheels (70mm X 50mm) and bearings. In regards to trucks, BoardUp V1 and V2 require the proprietary BoardUp trucks. However, BoardUp V3 supports all standard trucks thanks to our engineers!

Does BoardUp fold while riding?

BoardUp’s® patented locking hinge holds the deck open while riding and only folds up when the kick pad is engaged at the proper angle. This limited angle of action from the kick pad ensures that the rider won’t accidentally collapse the board while cruising.

The board in Braille Skateboarding's YouTube video looks different, what's the difference?

The board Aaron Kyro used in his video was our first version of BoardUp® and has since seen some upgrades in design.

  1. The locking mechanism that holds the longboard from folding is stronger and re-designed smaller with the same strength
  2. The Kick Pad on the board’s nose is now aluminum alloy which cuts down on weight and provides a more durable pad for stomping
  3. We refined the deck’s design for a more modern look. Both in the graphics side of things but also the form of the board. Our deck layout around the wheels now allows for harder turns without wheel biting.
