With other axle carriers, you can choose one or two positions for a change in height - which isn't all that much adjustability. Plus, you need to spend time at home removing a bunch of screws and even the entire wheel.
Unlike other axle carriers, the VRH are fully 7075 T6 aluminum (2x the strength of 6061). All the hardware is stainless steel for strength and corrosion resistance (and stronger than titanium).
With the VRH you can change your ride height in a minute to any one of 7 positions, with each position moving the board up or down by around 7mm. The axle is never fully disconnected from the board, so changes are easy and fast. The system drops the Onewheel Rails up to 1.25" down, and about .25" up from stock).
Riding to a trail via the streets? Drop your ride height for the smooth pavement and then quickly raise it to stock or one step higher for the trails! Fast adjustment, and easy to dial in for your perfect ride, every time.
With the VRH system you can precisely dial in any ride height for the terrain while out on a ride, and changing to a new setting takes less than one minute and only 2 screws! No other ride height adjustment product comes close to this! With all the others, it’s a back-at-home-only procedure and definitely not while out on a ride.
The second hole from the top corresponds to stock ride height. From there you can go up slightly (the top hole), or progressively lower the board over 5 stops (the lower holes) for a full drop of about 1.25" from the stock height at the last setting!
All orders for VRH now receive a free stainless steel GT motor clip retainer to keep your plug on securely! It's simple to install and much easier to remove if you need to get your wheel out for a tire change or maintenance.
Made from 7075 T6 aluminum for super strength, and then anodized, the VRH not only functions like no other axle carrier, but also looks good doing it! Logos are laser etched, not silkscreened, so they can’t rub off.
A set of 4 custom-made, stainless-steel high strength screws attach the VRH inner brackets directly to the frame, and installation takes only 10-15 minutes. For ease of use, ALL of the screws on the VRH system are M8 threaded and use the same size 5mm hex drive. The new version of the custom frame screws have a much deeper hex socket that eliminates any stripping issues.
Meant to work with stock Onewheel GT rails or Katana GT rails from Tech-Rails.
IMPORTANT NOTES: Fenders and fender deletes will need to be trimmed or Dremmeled (sanded) in order to clear the swingarm and adjuster bolts. We just cut the fender deletes at an angle on a miter saw (and we did a hack job there, yours could be better) and put them on. The Maghandle is incompatible with the VHR brackets. Rim Saver protectors by TFL fit, but the rail (motor cable side only) must be removed to install the VRH, and not in the way shown in the video. Once installed, the VRH system is not returnable.
After 4000 miles my foot sensor on my GT gave out. The downside of the original sensor is accidentally lifting your heal on slow delicate maneuvers and having th board shut down. The new pads have only one sensor zone making it harder to lift your heal to stop but eliminating unwanted disconnects which can be dangerous. One zone is pridictable and should be on the production line. The workmanship on both the platysense and the vrh is excellent. Personally I was hoping for the ability to elevate the board for riding rough desert roads where it is easy to catch the front of the board and get launched. The vrh only allows one position ( approx 1/4 inch) up from stock and 5 (1 and 1/4 inches) levels lower than stock. I contacted land/surf and they immediately respond (yeah!!) that the design is limited by the vrh running into the rim if they tried to raise it further. The 1/4 inch I can raise it does decrease mose down ejections by about 40% so that little amount is worthwhile.
All in all the quality and service is 5 star.

Great Product, Small Caveat
This product is amazing. There are limitations to it due to the design of the GT, but the product itself is well made, durable, and holds up well to extremely aggressive riding. I've done drops of almost 2-feet, plenty of curb drops, nose and tail drags, burnouts, etc. The product holds up well against all of it. The only problem is that we don't have replacement screws available for sale, and they are not water resistant. Get caught out in the rain or get your board covered in mud, and all of the screws will begin to lightly rust as mine have. Thankfully none of the screws have gotten stuck so far, but they've gotten squeaky. I've reached out asking to buy sets of replacement screws but have received no response. If we can get these available, this review becomes 5 stars.

Great product but I want one for WTF rails
Literally one of the best things out there for the GT but I want to put it on more aftermarket rails. If you could make one that fits on WTF's that would probably fit most aftermarket rails.

Feeling like a OneWheel Lowrider
Fun... I ran into a few challenges during installation. For one, I did not have a T-45 driver t to remove the four default F< axle plate screws.... After going to hardware store w/ my GT to match FM's default screws to correct fitting, I was reluctant to buy it as it did not fit snug. I went back home verified the sizing. It seems like prorideusa.com is selling special screws because the default FM allegedly strip.... Anyway, I went back to the hardware store and bought the T-45, came back home and removed the axle plate screws. I had to walk into the house and watch the install video a couple times.... Everything went smooth till I had to cut the delete to make room for the VRH. I heard someone suggest using a chop say to cut it... that was real dangerous, as I did not have a fine tooth blade, and was not wearing my safety goggles. The plastic cracked, and couple pieces few across the garage. Fortunately, nothing hit me, nor my nice car. I was left with a delete near the front light half broken. In order for me to finish the job, I ended up using my dremil to do some final cuts... I put the delete into my vice.... A word to the wise, don't use a chop saw, unless it has a fine blade - dremil works much better w/ the delete in a vice.... and, always wear protective gear, even when you ride your OW.... Anyway Matt, please 3.# print a custom delete for the VRH. I took it for a spin, and enjoyed the 2nd to lowest setting, but I have to dismount from my GT to go up my driveway curb, less I scrape the bottom of my board.. Either way, I am having fun with the VRH, and happy I installed it. thx

🐐 Starter Kit
Amazing board upgrade for cheap allows you to enjoy the board more in different ways without buying rails.

GT for 1K miles, this thing is amazing. Raise it for trail, the clearance is great. Lower it for pavement and you’re carving the city. I think I like it more than my Enduro and def. More than my FFs. All three are essential for urban/mountain trails.
