PUAIDA glow wheels review ,best night ride wheels for electric skateboard

Hey everyone, welcome back to my channel! In today's video, I'll be reviewing the 105 mm glow wheels that I've been using for the past six months. If you're into eskating and want to know whether these wheels are worth the investment, then you've come to the right place. I will be sharing the pros and cons of using these wheels, so let's get right into it!


First, let's talk about acceleration and range. These wheels are bigger than 90 mm wheels,they are supposed to have less torque and range. However, with 40T pulleys, they still have very good torque and hill-climbing ability. The torque does not reduce greatly, and your ability to brake does not go down. The range drain wasn’t as significant when it comes to glow wheels. This is probably due to the narrow contact patch on the wheels. Going from 90mm street wheels to 105mm glow wheels gave a drop of 12% in range. I got about 25 miles of range on 90 mm wheels and 22 miles of range on glow wheels. However, these wheel and pulley setup do have a higher top speed. I got about 28 mph top speed on 90 mm wheels and 31 mph top speed on glow wheels.


Moving on to grip, the grip is ok, not great for sure. 90mm wheels have better grip because they have a larger contact patch with the ground. Though the glow wheels are wider, they have a pretty narrow contact patch in the middle, so you will get a less grippy ride, which means that carving became a lot less fun when compared to riding on street wheels. If you don’t care as much about carving and are mostly concerned about accidentally hitting pebbles that your wheels can’t roll over, the glow wheels would be a good option. While the grip on the glow wheels is not great, they are stable when cruising at high speed, I felt quite stable cruising at 31 mph.


Are these wheels good for off-roading? Not really, but they are better than 90 mm wheels for slight off-roading. Riding on dirt paths, gravel roads, and grass is easier with glow wheels than with 90mm wheels. Cracks and potholes are significantly less noticeable, and small road vibrations are reduced by maybe around 25%, this is how it feels to me. If you feel that your ride is too bumpy or there is too much road vibration on 90mm street wheels, these are definitely gonna make your ride feel more comfortable.


The coolest feature of these wheels is that they glow when in motion, which makes them perfect for night rides. If you're someone who rides at night a lot, you'll appreciate the extra visibility these wheels provide. As someone who rides at night 80% of the time, anything that makes me more visible to the people around me is a plus.


After six months of regular use, the glow wheels have held up surprisingly well. They are a bit heavier than 90mm street wheels, which can affect the overall weight of your board. However, the added weight can also contribute to stability at high speeds.


Overall, I think the 105mm glow wheels are a great choice for anyone who wants a unique and eye-catching wheel for their electric skateboard. While they may not be the best for carving or off-roading, they make up for it with their stability, high top speed, and glow-in-the-dark feature. If you're looking for a wheel that will make your night rides safer and more fun, then the glow wheels are definitely worth considering.
