Our Limited Edition Black Wheels are as big as the Pearl wheels (97mm) and are even softer than the Blue wheels (76a durometer). The softer urethane absorbs vibration, improves traction, and gives the smoothest ZBoard ride ever. Plus they look killer.

Building out our Manufacturing / Maintenance Team
We're always working to reduce lead times on new orders and to reduce the turnaround times for maintenance / upgrades. We've hired two new Technicians that started this week and we're hopeful they'll help us pick up the pace. If you're currently waiting on your board to ship, please know that we're working non-stop to get it under your feet ASAP.
From the Founders
Its awesome to see the ZBoard community grow, both externally with more and more people receiving and riding their boards (soon Internationally as well), and internally as we add to our team.
We're super stoked on this new wheel set. The extra softness of the 76a durometer gives the board's ride a new level of smoothness, and the black wheels harken back to beefy wheels on the ZBoard 1. And they'll stay clean(ish)! Though the video at the top of this post is pretty intense, we ensure you that these wheels are super chill to ride. Check out the sunset ride below.
Thanks as always for your patience and support and for taking this journey with us. We would not be able to do it without you.
