Fangs™ 3.0 is the 6th generation of the original and most-loved bumper wheels for Onewheel™.
For this milestone release, Land-Surf went back to the drawing board and created a fresh new design that incorporates all of the feedback and lessons learned from previous Fangs™ versions. Instead of separate mounts, Fangs 3.0 for XR's and Plus boards is now a complete front bumper replacement that fits exactly in the spot the stock bumper is. No lights are blocked, and the fit is perfect! The wider wheels are set further apart than previous Fangs, allowing for more stability. And the screws are deep-set into the plastic to avoid grinding the heads down.
Drag the nose of your board whenever you want, and even steer while doing so...the new, 20mm-wide wheels easily handle all sorts of rough pavement, and are far less likely to catch on anything when hitting a trail run. The flowing lines and curved faces mean that these areas slide over dirt and grass more efficiently, without presenting a sharp edge that the terrain can grab onto and stop the board.
The bumper's ultra-slick, tough plastic is impervious to water and most chemicals, and is blended with UV stabilizers keep the colors vibrant longer. Normal plastics can fade in the sunlight after some exposure, but Fangs™ 3.0 will keep looking better, longer!
In designing the new Fangs™ 3.0, one goal was that changing out the wheels had to be an easy, fast process with a very low part count. And Land-Surf succeeded by simplifying the entire assembly. There are no washers or square nuts to lose, and installation couldn't be easier! Changing out a wheel takes less than 15 seconds and only requires one screw (the axle) to be removed.
