XCELL™ Turbine™ Series 6542 Brushless Motor ( Hypertrucks Fit )

XCELL Performance

We are proud to introduce our first powerhouse motor, called the Turbine™ series, for unleashing the true potential of your Lacroix® Lonestar® or Nazare®. The current 12s Lacroix boards have plenty of power in their batteries, and few riders have the potential to max them out. These motors turn that potential energy into accessible, smooth acceleration and torque that feels incredible to ride. And the pitch of the motors as they wind up ( a "turbine" sound ) gets to be addicting!

With these motors, an 18T pinion feels like a 16T. There are gobs of usable torque.

NOTE: For the upcoming higher-voltage boards, we are offering 18s (75v) winds for the ultimate in efficient power. 

User-accessible, quad-bearing supported shaft means more time between maintenance intervals. It's now much easier to inspect, clean, or replace the bearings in your motor (the one part that does "wear out" eventually). The high-quality Japanese bearings are ultra-smooth and reliable.

These motors feature a closed-off design to minimize dust and dirt ingress (pending thermal tests will confirm). With the massive heat sink of the Hypertrucks, thermal issues should not be an issue for most climates. (However, in testing before launch, if thermal issues are found, cooling holes may be added).

If you are thinking about them, just do it. You will not regret it.

I have the beta version of these motors on my OG LaCroix Lonestar and they made it feel like a different board. Super smooth and tons of power, they make a nutty whine when they are spooling up. If you are getting bored of what the stock 6396 motors can put out, give yourself a lil upgrade these are what you need.

Absolute Best Motor on the Market!

I have been using a beta version of this motor since September 2020 and it completely changed my riding experience. They are incredibly smooth yet intoxicatingly powerful... its the best of both worlds. They also have an addictive turbine sounds after you around 30km/h which is hard to describe... they definitely turn heads in a group ride!
I have used them with both Unity and Stormcore 100D without issues...
