Introducing the Funwheel ST
The Funwheel ST is the brainchild of 1000s of people from the DIY Funwheel community.
These rails are great for heat dissipation and creating a more locked in feel with the angles. My largest gripe is with the limited color selection. I ordered the bare metal anodized aluminum and went through the process of properly painting the rails myself. Not something I would want to have to do again, but at least I can have my desired color. The shipping to California took a little under 2 weeks so that was surprisingly fast. I just dropped to the lowered position and have wiped out a significant number of times. I believe its largely due to the learning curve with applying more gradual acceleration on the lowered rails. I cut my TFL fender deletes to allow for the center portion of the rails to be unhindered when changing heights. So far so good.
I tried it and it gets you way out of your comfort zone. This is meant for racers and speed freaks like myself. Basically a compact euc motor. I was ripping at 50kmh (32mph) easy with this one. Couldn't even hit 85% duty cycle 😅🔥🤙💯🙏
I have bought this Superflux to install on my Vesc. This is really powerful compare to my previous XR Hypercore. But it is more heavy also. It could be good if Fungineer could propose a version with wires identical to FM models. My Because soldering bananas connectors 3 to 6 is not easy... I am very happy with my thunder rails and Superflux. Thanks a lot Fungineers!
TLDR - A solid rail option for running a big tire VEXR (VESC-XR).
I was lucky enough to get to try out a set of these pretty early on. It takes a little getting used to the different angles, but I started feeling really comfortable on them after about 30 miles and getting my IMU pitch configured how I like it.
The rails are designed and machined well. They are definitely ideal for VEXR with a big tire... I doubt I would like these rails on any other setup. There is actually a 3rd micro adjustment height where you can split the two other heights by using the diagonal holes (see pictures).
Honestly, just the ability to run the larger Burris 11.5x7 tire makes these worth it on their own, but the unique geometry offers a ride no other rails provide that really caters to aggressive riding. The steeper nose angle provides a firm platform to brace against and push into, keeping you stable in chunk, secure in hard acceleration, and comfortable in downhill riding. It almost emulates the feel of foot holds like Lifters or Control Freaks, but with the ability to bail out just fine.
Additionally, lowering the nose gets you matching angles (5°/5°), but with the tail raised up vertically a bit, giving you extra tail clearance and a comfortable forward position. And the heights are solid, the low setting feels amazing in street and the higher setting is still plenty stable, just with added clearance to handle more aggressive trail riding.
And of course, the rails are just beautiful, the geometry compliments the aspect of being able to dial in the angle you want, and the details really make them stand out. Definitely recommend these for anyone looking to join the Big Tire Gang 🤙
Fungineer boys continue to amaze us with products that no one is willing to risk and bring to the market. Kudos for staying ahead and giving the riders what they want!! THE ONLY COMPANY THAT LISTENS TO ITS CUSTOMERS AND DELIVERS.
This adapter (singular!) fits the extra beefy motor cable much better than the old ones!
Purchased only the BB lid. Very nice
Fungineers has gone above and beyond to bring RTR (Right to repair) and build to the Onewheel community they deserve our support. With the addition of new products such as lighting and BMS solutions only continue to earn that well deserved legend status!
So the guys responded to my email and shipped my rails out pretty much the same day. They said they were out of silver gray rails so I took a shot and asked for the hot rod reds. And I think that’s what they shipped out to me. Much thanks for the response back and that’s all I needed to know is that there was a shortage on the silver gray rails or any issues for the delay. I feel at ease because they responded to my email.
Still waiting for my steel gray rails . More like still waiting for a response or email. If these don’t show up soon or I don’t receive a response. I’m calling my bank to get my money back no matter what or where these rails are. Not ordering from these guys ever again. I’ll give them another month for them to respond or I’m just getting my money back.
make some for the GT PLEASEEEE 😎😎
Received in excellent condition! Oh man... So yellow! This is my second pair of thunder rails and they are fantastic. Well-made, height-adjustable and compatible with all my XR aftermarket parts including my BANGS, Fang bumper, and Float fender v2. Flight fins and the fender do need 1/2" spacers. I used small rubber bushings and they work perfectly.
Fast packing and shipping proces. Similar quality than oringnal hypercor motor produktion. what I expected most from the motor? MORE torque and that's what I got, the engine is noticeably more efficient. I have no heat problems. My weight is over 110kg. power consumption naturally increased. I Have 84v 10Ah battery Normal Maximim 40-50km
This motor is amazing it’s so much smoother than the hypercore when faced against high torque situations and the heat defifference is insane even when racing at dirtsurferz on a 7 mile continues trail race in arkansas my motor temp never reached 60C or higher it stayed cool the whole time and I went on the adapting the motor to molex route which was a big headache but definitely worth it in the long run to switching tires in the future or setups!
Although this motor was a big headache by adapting the connector to molex and it took a long time to ship (I have the second gen) I will still give it 5 stars I love the motor a lot specially on trails paired with a 75.6V 18S battery it handles trails amazingly without overheating.
I’m seriously considering building another vesc later on with a different battery because of the amazing experience I had so far with the motor!
My only grudge would be that I wish there was more resources or a guide on how to adapt the motor for me it was mostly asking around to other people and figuring some things out.
Even do it weights more it’s definitely worth it if you are looking for a smoother and cooler motor for racing, trail riding or anything really for your vesc.
Definitely rides way smoother and better than my gt.
And a screenshot I took right after the race when I crossed the finish line to show my motor and mosfet temperatures,
Huge shoutout to fungineers for the amazing motor and makers pev!
