WHAT ARE HOMEBREW RAILS?
We set out to make the most heavy duty, beautiful rails for the Onewheel™ possible and the result are the Homebrew rails! Here are the key features of the Homebrew rails:
-7075 aircraft grade aluminum aka pretty much the most badass aluminum available! You get full steel strength with aluminum light weight!
-Type II black anodized
-Deep CNC roll tapped threads
-400 series hardened stainless steel inserts
-Deleted vestigial center vent hole for increased strength and resistance to bending
-Tighter tolerances at the axle bolt holes to quiet movement and noise.
The main problem with the Growler is placing a narrow Pint size tire on a wider rim that's engineered for a wider tire. The narrow tire leaves the rim more exposed to damage & less protected (the rim now sticks out further than the tire). My brand new board experienced 3 major impacts to the rim/motor hub in just 57 miles with the Growler kit. Impacts that broke large chunks of the rim completely off. I now need to have the entire motor hub replaced. I've owned & been riding OneWheel's since 2017. I have never seen or experienced this kind of damage to any of my boards until the Growler kit was placed on a board that started out with Zero miles. To date, the Growler Hybrid Conversion is the worst after market modification I've ever placed on any of my boards. I now have to baby my Growler & ride it like a grandma driving a car. When I switch to "Beast mode," I have to hop on another board because the Growler can't take the heat.
Bougfht the XR, blown away and exceeded expectations...then bought a Pint...love the handling but was disappointed in range and speed always hitting pushback. Sold the Pint since it was kinda useless for me because of that. Upgraded XR to Whisper tire and was happier....then got hop on the Growler at a group ride and was impressed. Just built my Growler and holy crap this thing is freakin amazing! Perfect balance of Pintability and the XR beast! Thought the Growler would be my second board...nope, now my XR is now my "second board!"
I love this thing more every time I ride it!!! My other XR is prolly going to be covered in dust soon as the Growler is rapidly becoming my “go to” board. Definitely worth every penny!!!!!
The Growler rocks!
It is more snappy than an XR, gets about the same range and carves so much better. Highly recommended!
If you're having doubts, don't hesitate. The build is easy and the quality of all items are top notch! Jeff's video tutorial is perfect! Well done!
This kit is the percect hybrid setup! So nimble for maneuvering through any type of terrain! Rides like a dream on street and gnarly enough to eat up trails!
Love the cleaned up look of the rails!
