This was built in April 2019, just shifting the build thread to here.
Ok here goes. I have a big AT board weighing at 14kg, and might be heavier if i increase my battery size or get bigger wheels, so i’m thinking of making a lightweight, short-ish range pneumatic board.
Goal is to have it 10kg or below.
Here’s the items i chose
Landyachtz Evo Falcon 36"
@avX AT gear drive for the Haggy parts
Flipsky 6354s 190kv
10s4p 30Q battery pack. Was considering other cells like 30T, 40T, or VTC5A in smaller cells to save on weight, but went for 30Q in the end because of $$
Riptide tunnel risers and an assortment of accessories like bushings, pivot cups and so on.
Enclosure came first so i worked on it, stripped the black paint and did my ol usual with truck bedliner spray
Then came the deck. I got it from someone locally who initially bought it to use on a downhill set up, but he ended up selling instead so i swooped it.
Then comes the drive system. I’m using Jeff’s AT gear drive designed for the Kahua trucks. This model is now known as the MK1 design.

Back to the deck. Trying something out.
Look at the color change
Ok, glass frit time.
After it’s done, installed everything to the board, what’s missing now is the battery.
10s4p pack is done! There’s so much enclosure space haha.
Went downstairs for a test ride. Dropdown decks are the best.
And it’s done! Here’s some finished pics.
Just recently, Jeff got a couple sets of his new Herringbone gears made, and lent me a set to test. These make the drives real silent compared to the straight cut gears.
Mmmmm… delicious. Final weight is right smack at 10kg surprisingly
So yea, this build is perfect for urban carving and occasional offroad on grass etc. But i’ll probably use this often for when it has light rains. My area seems to that often. It’s not heavy rain, but the floors get wet. The Landyachtz Evo deck with these trucks and wheels, seem to be a good pair up, as the water that splashes does not hit the deck or enclosure, so the belly is relatively dry. Of course, mud guards would help even more. So there! Hope you guys liked the build as much as i do.
