🇬🇧 Nexus Boards UK - 220mm CNC Trucks - BOAs, VX1/2s, Decks & More


Custom VX1s out now! (Now dyed)
The Nexus Boards Shop is live over on nexusboards.co.uk

Hello everyone!

My name is Ben, I’m a software developer and esk8 enthusiast from Canada, living in the UK. I have been riding esk8 since 2016, as well as other awesome PEVs!

What we’re selling

  • Mounts
  • Trucks
  • 97mm and 6" Wheels
  • Motors
  • Remotes
  • Pulleys
  • Accessories and more

Why did I bother to become a parts vendor?
My goal is to provide a safe, high quality, cost-effective solution to the lack of components in the EU. While the parts we’re starting with off the shelf/modified existing parts, I am hoping to be able to focus on creating and funding my product design runs, including trucks, wheels, mounts, and other accessories. We are always looking for community feedback, if you find anything wrong with our shop please let us know.

Pricing & Support
We offer a 6-month warranty on most of our products and a 60-day warranty on electronics. We ship directly from the UK, and support is available 7 days a week. With a trend in the industry of large delays and little communication, we will strive to have a 100% satisfaction rate with our support. We price our things as competitively as possible while still being able to provide support, but if you think an item is too expensive please let us know and we will see what we can do to bring the cost down as much as possible.

Shipping
Taking advantage of the cheap shipping rates from the UK, most orders will pay under £4/$5 for shipping. Heavier shipments will cost up to £12, and international orders a little more. If you are ordering from a country which isn’t part of the European union, please contact us about reducing the price of your cart.

What we’re hoping to achieve

  • By the end of October, we will be battle hardening all motor stators, cans and connections before shipping as well as offering thicker wires and larger bullet connectors
  • By the end of the year, we hope to be offering our custom trucks and mounts. We will also be offering services and products for the growing budget board industry, including cheaper, faster shipping components and full local repair service.
  • By the summer of 2020, we hope to offer our custom wheels and hub motors, and maybe more!

Hopefully we can follow the footsteps on Trampa, boardnamics, torqueboards and the other amazing vendors :heart:

Yep, pretty much. Gotta fund them custom components!
I hope the prices are actually pretty competitive though. and with fast shipping, and UK based support.

I didn’t want to stock crappy/dangerous components,

Well good luck with your shop/company.

Prices look good so far and finally a quick website.

2 things. Please make your “Assistant” on the botten right less annoying. I don’t need a constant red Notification that is shaking. (Luckily not as annoying as the PING on @torqueboards site. sorry not sorry.)

And second : Any plans for 15mm pulleys? Would be great if the width is included in the title of the Item.

We accidentally got aluminium pulleys (My fault). The 15T pulley is 16mm though. The 13T is 14.5mm
When we restock, they will hopefully be steel and we’ll offer 13, 14, 15 and 16T 15mm+

I think I’ve fixed the assistant, thanks for bringing to my attention

Good to hear.

Yes the Assistant is better now. Only thing i noticed is that it jumps up and down if you scroll the site up and down (on mobile atleast) Doesn’t bother me but just a friendly reminder.

Well if you have all the items in stock and can ship fast then it’s a fair price considering they are from dicky.
I do wish you well to be able to make your own custom parts like integrated decks, press fit pulleys, mounts, drives, etc

Best of hope to your shop :smiley:

My vernier reads 12.5mm, so suitable for 15mm belts but not 17+. I suppose you could stack 2 together and have a crazy long idler, but any longer and it does collide with large wheels.

Should’ve just called it dickyboards

Planned are 240mm CNC 7075 Trucks under $100 per pair, DKP CNC trucks with a caliber profile, custom mounts, press fit pulleys (including potentially venom ones for a little cheaper, as I really like that wheel but the small pulley quantities make it not so used :frowning: ) and hopefully more.
