What Are Riders Saying About this Product
Great solid product
Not for me
I got these (38t) for better acceleration and braking and while they offer slightly better acceleration and noticeably stronger braking over the standard 32t I found the increased torque made starting off the line really jerky and cumbersome.
They're just not as smooth in everyday use as the 32t and became a pain to use.
I would say High Speed braking (30km/h+) had become slightly dangerous as even the slightest touch on the brake would unsetle the board.
Also no matter how tight i adjusted the belt tension (i tried different tensions) they would slip under heavy braking.. and i'm not exactly the heaviest guy at 80KG
No complaints about build quality as these are excellent.
Using with standard 97mm wheels

Hey Al, This sounds really strange that it's slipping on the 38T but not the 32T, maybe there's something else going on there. Feel free to reach out to your local tech department for advice. Cheers Evolve HQ
