MADE TO XCELL™
The Helios XT is the first of the new XT series - a wider than usual wheel that still fits all the popular tires like Evolve 7" and Kenda 8" tires...and everything in between. Measuring 53mm between the rims, this wide wheel has to be seen to be believed. It increases the contact patch as well as the overall track width of the board, resulting in a very confidence-inspiring ride and incredible grip.
Precision CNC Milled and Lathed from 7075-T6 aluminum, these dynamic wheels are extremely strong (and weigh in around 280 grams). Custom simulation studies for stress, as well as real-world testing, modification, refinement, and improvement, have resulted in the ultimate wheels for premium e-skate super sleds.
In plastic, two-part wheels, the bearings are in different halves of the wheel, resulting in misaligned bearings, which causes wheel wobble and increased rolling resistance. Plastic, two-part wheels simply do not have the high accuracy to compete in high speed road courses.
XCELL™ wheels, as a core feature, contain both critical wheel bearings in a single piece of massively strong aerospace aluminum, compressing an aluminum spacer.
This setup increases accuracy of the bearings with respect to not only the shaft, but to each other – resulting in longer, better rolls and truer spin - along with an elimination of wobble present in lower quality plastics. You can feel the difference.
The accuracy of these wheels must be felt in person to appreciate the quality.
XCELL™ wheels are milled of 7075-T6 Aluminum (far stronger than 6001), lathed, and then smoothed and anodized for an outstanding appearance. Choose an anodized color like blue, red, or black.
To maximize performance, choose from top-quality Japanese NSK or SKF steel , or Acer Ceramic (true silicon nitride balls) bearings. Or bring your own. The size needed is 6001 series, and 8 are required, along with four 22.4mm long aluminum spacers.
For the Helios XT™ wheel, incredibly strong alloy steel screws are included.
All screws enter from the back side, and anchor into the front half of the wheel. Unlike plastic wheels, changing all of the tires just went from being a nightmare to a 10 minute operation - for all four wheels!
FOR KALY GEAR DRIVES:
We now offer an adapter kit that allows all XCELL™ wheels to run on Kaly 2.0, XL40, and XL50 gear drives. This offers an incredible amount of customization of your Kaly board by opening up a ton of wheel options previously unavailable. For Kaly applications, make sure to select the KALY option in each dropdown on this page for the correct pricing.
A stock Lacroix pulley is fully compatible with Land-Surf™ XCELL™ wheels.
But we also have produced the most accurate, high-quality 72T pulley available for the Nazare and Lonestar. The main feature of this precision pulley is that it “keys” into the back of the XCELL™ wheel line, creating a more integrated, stronger interface between wheel and pulley.
In black, the pulley is also hard-anodized, which is a much tougher finish than the standard anodizing that comes on the stock pulley. The result is much less wear and tear from the belt, and a pulley than maintains it’s gear teeth longer without becoming “sharp toothed”.
XCELL™ ANODIZED M12 NUTS:
These center-lock inspired wheel nuts are awesome M12 nuts that come in 6 anodized colors. All with a lower profile than the stock nylock nuts for a sleek accent to any wheel. Available for Hypertrucks as well as the Matrix II axles as found on the Prototipo® and Jaws®. Works with any wheel.
Enjoy riding with your XCELL™ wheels and feel their sharper handling and true spin. The newfound precision of your board will be something you feel with every turn, and every stretch of smooth tarmac!
These wheels can also be used with our Fo' Shorty Titanium front axles for Lacroix® Hypertrucks®
EACH ORDER INCLUDES:
4 Complete XCELL™ HELIOS wide wheels in 7075-T6 aerospace aluminum
20 high strength, alloy-steel screws
- 3mm Ball Driver
NOTE: Make sure to specify in the comments at checkout which model of board you have if it's a Lacroix Nazare/Lonestar (and whether pulley drive or Falcon GEAR DRIVE, Jaws, or Prototipo. This is to ensure the correct screw length is supplied.
Lacroix Falcon Gear Drives require a 12x1mm thick washer to be added to the axle before the wheel, for the correct offset.
3D Servisas "Fat Boy" trucks and gear drive will also work with the correct screws and axle spacer.
Make sure to specify that you are using a specific brand or type of drive, or if you are using the stock pulleys.
Extra Options and Add-Ons:
XCELL™ wheels will fit anywhere MBS wheels do.
