TRAMPA's 6.5 Inch URBAN TREADS High Pressure Speed Tyre is arguably the PREMIUM TYRE in the TRAMPA range of tyres. Measuring 165x45mm when fully inflated the URBAN Tyres is uniquely sized & a special mould had to be made to make it. The High Pressure speed tyre was designed specifically to fit to both of TRAMPA's amazing HYPA & SUPERSTAR hubs with the intention of radically changing the rough ride experienced by that of a regular longboard wheel....
Using a Very High TPI construction (Thousands of very Fine Threads per Inch are stitched over the outer nylon bands) the foundation & construction is incredibly strong & by using premium quality HIGH GRIP COMPOUND motorcycle rubber to cover the High TPI construction, not only is the URBAN TREADS Tyre amazingly light weight but it has performance like that to match a premium motorcycle tyre!!
The extra inflation capability on such a reduced sized tyre gives the most incredible performance to the TRAMPA fleet of boards. The Low Profiled Wide Centre Bead with High Inflation capabilities combination gives you the ability to achieve amazingly High Speeds without barely trying... Using the spring adjusters to tighten the steering, pre-loading more tension into your springs before you wish to hit high speeds will prevent potential wobble, but with enough grip on the edges to cut muddy corners or nip down hard packed off road tracks this Urban Tread tyre doesnt only handle high speeds easily but around town, down cycle paths, through alleyways & nipping through the woods,its perfect... this tyre works as an alround urban dream....
Being smaller in size, its original design intention was to be fitted specifically to the more appropriately sized URBAN CARVE range of decks, but already the boys in the workshop are eyeing them up for their what are already 8 inch wheeled mountainboards to take the new 6.5inch URBAN TREADS.... Were heading off to race around the Go-Kart track later!! :-)
TRAMPA's SUPERSTAR Hub is a technically designed super-strength masterpiece of circular lushness, created for those who insist on fitting only the very best equipment! SUPERSTAR Hubs are available in loads of different Rim & Spoke colour combinations, its almost impossible to decide the combination you like the most!
The SUPERSTAR hub handles the highest inflation pressures on the market, which in turn increases roll speeds giving the rider the adavantage over the competiton, making them perfect for the best riders, i mean the insane! The SUPERSTAR Rims are produced using original DuPont materials (The Best) whilst the Spokes use Extruded Aluminum thats T6 Heat treated (Super Strength Aero-grade quality) which is all constructed using A4 (Marine Grade) Stainless Steel Nuts & Bolts. Total & absolute product perfection!
SUPERSTAR Hubs are compatible with all known 8 inch tyres on the market today! Disk Brakes & Drive Gears for Electric motors can also be fitted to these amazing SUPERSTAR wheels... Watch this space for Hot NEWS on E Trampa...
Bearings can be purchased at a discounted price when purchased with Hubs. 2x Bearings cost only £2.50 = £10 per set of 8 making a £5 saving per set!
This is a replacement or extra SPOKE for the Superstar hub. TRAMPA's Superstar spokes are produced using 6061 Aero-grade "Top Quality" Aluminum which is forced through an Extrusion Die. Extrusion means continuous which is how our Spokes are made, in one continuous piece. Once extruded the resulting profile is T6 Heat Treated. Heat Treating extruded 6061 Alloy makes the Alloy very very strong.
The spoke is high quality bead polished to give the best surface appearance, 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 special Spacer measures 12mm (id) x 16mm (od) x 16.5mm (long) & is known as a Bearing Support Spacer. This Bearing Support Spacer fits between the Bearings, along side the 10mm O-Ring when fitting Bearings into a TRAMPA hub when mounting the wheel onto 12mm Axles.
Over time, during the usage of your board, the bearings & spacers are put under a lot of force. Ultimately this force has to go somewhere... The Bearings use a Steel ring in their assembly where as the Bearing Support Spacers are made from Aluminum. Steel is much stronger than Aluminum & when forced against each the aluminum will loose out every time! This is what happens to your spacers between the bearings, the Bearings put force onto your spacers as a consequence over time the spacers shrink... With enough time its possible for an annoying rattle to start.... That's when you fit these 16.5mm spacers with the little 10mm O-Rings to prevent the rattles!! :-)
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!
Introducing TRAMPA's M5 (5mm Thread) A4 Marine Grade Stainless steel Nylock Nut. This Nylock Nut will fit to all M5 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 the Regular shaped M5 Bolts that hold the TRUCKS to the DECK for all Decks & also for the Dome Head Bolts connecting the L BRACKETS to the Bindings. Use an 8mm spanner or Ratchet Drive to tighten the Nut onto the Bolt. Always ensure your Nuts & Bolts are tight before you ride!
