TRAMPA's M4 x 40mm Socket Capped Bolt is made using A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel. This very special TRAMPA Bolt is used to assemble the TRAMPA SUPERSTAR HUBS. Using a 3mm Allen Key the Socket Capped head of the Bolt screws neatly though the SPOKES, through the fixing point in the Rim of the Hub, passing through the spoke on the other side and eventually screwing into the M4 nut on the other side easly.
Weighing just 3 grams each these bolts are very lightweight. They look very sexy & are totally non corrosive. Using Marine Grade Stainless Steel, means these Bolts will never rust on you! They can cope with the most harsh of weather conditions & they laugh in the face of sandy/salty beaches or muddy freeride tracks, which do turn other manufacturers Nuts & Bolts into corrosive rusting wrecks! As well as being Non Corrosive all of the TRAMPA Bolts are diped in BLUE THREAD LOCKING PASTE to ensure an extra strong secure fix between the Nut & the Bolt.
You will need a 3mm Allen Key to tighten & loosen the Nuts & Bolts from the hub. Ensure all your Nuts & Bolts are tight before riding!
'OMG! WTF's them?? Are they metal Superstar Rims' i hear you say?? As-if!! No-Way!! Un-Real!! & proudly introducing the TRAMPA's 8 inch MEGASTAR Rims :-)
Its hard to ever imagine that TRAMPA's SUPERSTAR Rim could ever be improved upon, but yep that's right, that's what we have gone n done, improved on perfection! So the Super Sexy 8 inch MEGASTAR Rims are a PRO version of the already amazing SUPERSTAR Rim! MEGASTARS are pricey yeah, but WoW, they are lush :-)
CNC Milled from a solid block of BILLET ALUMINUM, Anodised BLACK or POLISHED & Laser logo's for a Pimp appearance, all of the different MEGASTAR Rims that we offer fit the regular SUPERSTAR SPOKES, so if you already have SUPERSTAR Rims & wish to upgrade to MEGASTAR Rims, all you need to do is purchase the Rims to make the swap...
MEGASTAR Rims have extra bolt holes! This is done partly for aesthetics but mostly for wheel balancing reasons... When any of the small plastic rims or hubs are fitted with a tyre / inner tube using a valve for inflation, the valve itself weighs approx 6 grams. This is a substantial amount of weight on such a small wheel, consequently when the wheel is spinning this weight throws the wheel out of balance, at high speed, especially when riding on smooth surfaces it can be quite noticeable...
Its been an ongoing problem for speed freaks since the dawn of mountainboarding, but now we have a solution to the problem!! Having the extra bolt holes allows us you screw in 2x extra M4x18mm Socket capped Bolts, a similar weight to the Valve, into an area that's directly located opposite to the valve, which in turn acts as a counter balance preventing the un-even weight, allowing a smoother rotation, ultimately a faster spin rate making the MEGASTAR Rims perfect for high speeds!
TRAMPA's 8 inch MEGASTAR Rims are Available in 2 different options, CENTER-SET Bearing Position, which is a direct metal replacement of the original Plastic injection SUPERSTAR rim (effectively pimping your ride with Valve balance facility) & also in the very exciting OFF-SET Bearing Position.....
Fitting the OFF-SET Bearing position MEGASTAR Hubs will move the wheels further away from your feet & widen your wheel boards base, perfect for large people & small Boards. Initially designed in conjunction with the smaller Truck Models (12-Fifties & Mini Spring Trucks) to give space for bigger things, with the additional support of a 6mm Axle Spacer on the 9.525mm Axle, fitted before the wheel slips on, you will gain quite a bit extra Wheel base, which in turn will give extra room to fit the larger 8 Inch Tyres, turning your TRAMPA CARVE or ORRSOME Board into more of a Mini Mountainboard with a whole heap of 8 inch tire options available to you, transforming your URABN ride into an off-roader!!
With some addition trickery of inserting the OFF-SET Spoke Support Spacer into the assembly of the Deep Dish (Off-Set) 8 Inch MEGASTAR Rim, it is now possible to firstly ride with 9.525mm Ceramic bearings & secondly to Off-Set your wheel position even further out than fitting just the Off-Set MEGASTAR wheels alone. When fitting the two parts (Off-set MEGASTAR Rims & OFF-Set Spoke Support Spacer) you will be increasing the wheel base on the smaller Truck systems (12-Fifties & Mini Spring Trucks) by approx 1 inch, allowing plenty of room for things to fit such as 8 inch tyres (without clashing with your toes & Twin 160kv motors!! :-)
TRAMPA's 5 spoke MEGASTAR RIMs have been in the pipeline of dreams for a very long time... but its only been in the time of the Electric side of riding has developed that products like these have really ever created for those who insist on fitting only 'the Very Best of Equipment'. They are a technically designed, super-strengthened, masterpiece's of circular lushness! They have been Precision CNC milled from a solid block of Aluminum, they are never going to be cheap to make or sell but not only will these precision made MEGASTAR rims improve the smoothness of your ride, but OMG they are so FXXXXN sexy you just have to have them once you have seen them!!
Both the Center Set & Off-set 8 inch MEGASTAR HUB will fit to ANY of the Tyres in the TRAMPA product Range up to 9 inches in Diameter. This includes the 5 Inch Gummies Tyres, 6.5 Inch URBAN Treads, 7 Inch Inline Tyres & ANY of the 8 inch Tyre options TRAMPA offers. The 8 Inch MEGASTAR Hub is so strong it handles the highest inflation pressures of any small wheel on the market.... Increasing Inflation rates will ultimately increase maximum roll speed capabilities, making them the perfect option for the insane among us!
MEGASTAR Rims are available in Anodised Black with Laser Logo or as my favorite in High polished with Laser logo. The MEGASTAR rims fit perfectly with the same Spokes used in the SUPERSTAR hub with all the same colour combinations being possible, its difficult to decide the combination you like the most! As ive already said the Anodised Spokes used in the MEGASTAR hubs are the same as the spokes that are needed in the SUPERSTAR hubs, so if you already have SUPERSTAR hubs & wish to upgrade your rims to MEGASTAR then this works perfectly - They could also be the perfect Christmas present!!
TRAMPA Spokes made from Extruded 6061 Aluminum which has been T6 Heat treated (Super Strength Aero-grade quality) & comes in a nice range of colours to satisfy your taste. The MEGASTAR's hub construction is held together by using 'Socket capped' M4 x 40mm A4 (Marine Grade) Stainless Steel Nuts & Bolts & will never rust on you!
TRAMPA's MEGASTAR Rims can be used in conjunction with any of the Pulleys that fit to the SUPERSTAR rim & then fitted into any of the Mountainboard Motor Mounts & Some of the Urban Carve Motor Mounts that TRAMPA offers. I hear TRAMPA Ceramic Bearings are on the way to fit the 12mm axle soon... Oh WoW!
It is possible to fit all of the Bearing sizes TRAMPA offers into the assembly of the 8 Inch MEGASTAR Rims. As Standard the Superstar / Megastar spokes accept the 12mm Axle Mountainboard bearings, These 12mm bearings can be fitted with Bearing Reducer Sleeves which will alow the wheel to fit to 9.525mm Axles, where as if you insert the Special Spoke Support Spacer into the assembly of the hub, you can fit to 9.525mm or 8mm Longboard Axles where hundreds of top quality bearing options are available for you to choose from...
Introducing TRAMPA's M4 (4mm Shaft) A4 Marine Grade Stainless steel Nylock Nut. This Nylock Nut will fit to all M4 Bolts regardless of their length. This A4 Marine Grade Stainless Steel Nut will never rust on you! It is fitted with the world renowned NYLOCK System (Nylock is a nylon locking system where Nylon is pasted into the threads of the nut so that when the bolt is tightened into the nut the nylon grabs the thread of the bolt holding it locking it in the thread ensuring things do not vibrate loose or fall off when being ridden on rough terrain like that which a Mountain or Kiteboard endures. The NYLOCK thread locking security System is fitted as standard to all TRAMPA Nuts.
This Nut is used to fix to tighten to the M4 Socket Capped Bolts that hold the HYPA & SUPERSTAR hubs together. To fit the nuts M4 use an 8mm spanner or 8mm Ratchet Socket to turn the Nut onto the Bolt whilst holding the bolt with a 3mm Allen Key. Always ensure your Nuts & Bolts are tight before you ride!
TRAMPA's Superstar spokes are produced using 6061 Aero-grade (Top Quality) Aluminum. The Aluminum is forced through an "Extrusion Die". Extrusion means "continuous" which is how our Spokes are made, in one long continuous piece. Once extruded the resulting profile is cooled & then sliced into shape before being hardened through the T6 Heat Treating process. Heat Treating extruded 6061 Alloy makes the Alloy very very strong.
The spoke is then sent for bead polishing to take away the sharp edges & then the spokes are sent away to the Anodisers to have the relevant colour added. Once the colour has been added, the precision CNC machine is set to work to mill out & accept the bearings into the housing, perfectly!
Check your spoke support spacers are in good condition when inter-changing spokes & ensure all of your nuts & bolts are tight before you ride!
This is the TRAMPA SUPERSTAR Spoke Support Spacer. It is used to gain extra strength for the SUPERSTAR wheel design by adding support to the Aluminum Spokes when the wheel is being used under high inflated pressures...
Precision injection moulded, using original DuPont materials, this Spacer provides essential support for the Spokes in the Superstar hubs. There is a Deep Shelf on the Rim of the Spacer which pushes into the internal side of the Spoke, positioning the Spacer/spoke perfectly for assembly. The thick plastic ensures a very strong support platform maximising Bearing support & spin rate always....
Ensure all your nuts & bolts are tight before riding!!
TRAMPA's 6.5 Inch Low profile URBAN TREADS tyres have been specifically designed to fit TRAMPA's incredibly strong 6 Spoke HYPA & 5 Spoke SUPERSTAR hubs. My design brief to Frank was simple - make the smallest, best quality pneumatic tyre we possibly can, I want to radically changing the rough ride experience of that when riding with regular style longboard wheels, specially at speed when riding in Urban/City environments.... We all know the pavements & roads are far from a perfect surface so much so that sometimes its almost impossible to ride regular Longboard wheels, some of the pot holes around me are terrible but with these URBAN TREADS tyres fitted you can smash through all the imperfections whilst still enjoying that small wheel feel...
TRAMPA's URBAN TREADS tyres are arguably the PREMIUM TYRE in TRAMPA's range of tyres. Made with whats known a High TPI construction (TPI means Threads Per Inch & the URBAN TREADS tyre uses thousands of very Fine Threads per Inch to stitch between the outer lightweight nylon bands, this in turn gives the construction shape to the tyre) this High TPI means the tyre's construction is incredibly strong whilst still very supple, like a posh bicycle tyre but by smothering the Treads with premium quality HIGH GRIP COMPOUND motorcycle rubber to cover the High TPI construction, not only are the URBAN TREADS Tyre amazingly light weight but it has performance like that to match a premium motorcycle tyre!!
Having a High TPI & using hefty amounts of thick Motorcycle rubber means not only is the construction of the tyre incredibly strong but it will also wear incredibly well too. This extra strength in turn allows the tyre to be run at both, incredibly low tyre pressure or should the circumstances require (such as a skate park where you need to pump hard) inflated to being incredibly hard the URBAN TREADS Tyres can easily handle our factory set limit of 85psi, (but ONLY inflate to 85psi when fitting the URBAN TREADS on to the TRAMPA HYPA or SUPERSTAR hubs) but we have herd of some of the crazy TRAMPA Lab Rats (i mean team riders) are inflating over 100psi (i dont think their pump will allow them to get any more air in haha) & with currently no problems to report... But for sure, if one pop's at 100 psi it will certainly make one hell of a noise!! BANG!! haha! :-)
Riding on such a small sized tyre gives the most radical performance change to literally every board in the TRAMPA range. The is no doubt the tyre was developed specifically for the URBAN CARVER BOARD & more in particular the ELECTRIC URBAN CARVE BOARD where both products use a smaller deck & the smaller sized Mini Spring Trucks system, the smaller board needed a slightly smaller tyre than that of the full sized 8 inch ATB decks to compliment the overall product size, so in true TRAMPA style we made the URBAN TREADS Tyre special for that application but since then we have found over these last cold wet winter months that the 6.5 inch URBAN TREADS tyres have also become the choice tyre for Mountainboards who are maintaining their riding skills in the out of season period by riding in indoor Parks or Tracks, just ask the world famous Brind Brothers - PRO TRAMPA Team riders, who have literally not stopped riding through the winter since the release of these new tyres...
TRAMPA's Electric boards have amazing performance with a top speed of well over 50kmph achievable on all models. When your hitting high speeds like this you need good tyres on your board. Thankfully the URBAN CARVE range of decks are fitted with super sexy 6.5 inch URBAN TREADS Tyres as standard. The reinforced, low profiled, wide center beaded with intelligently designed jagged edge around the side can be run on low inflation pressure which gives enough grip to cut muddy corners or nip down hard packed off road tracks no problem, but can also handle the super inflation for straight line flat out speed. If you wish to ride full speed we 1stly suggest you turn the SPRING ADJUSTERS clockwise to tighten the steering resistance, pre-loading more tension into your springs before you wish to hit high speeds will prevent potential wobble, and if you re beginning to feel a bit of wobble, then you should moce te springs to the outside position before attempting to go any faster. If you still feel speed wobble when the springs are in the outside position, then you should then further Add the TRAMPA DAMPA's to add more resistance to the steering to enable you to be able to go even faster :-)
The Urban Tread tyre doesn't only handle high speeds easily but riding around town where you are likely to be bashing up & down curbs & dealing with cracks in the road or potholes, then you are most likely, or you should be riding at much lower inflation pressures. The lower pressure gives so much comfort on the rougher stuff but of course does increase Drag making it harder for your batteries to perform well...
