Hello and welcome to the Shoc Board Systems consumer retail website!  Thank you so much for your interest in our innovative products designed for a wide range of ESK8 board platforms!

The preorder sale that opened and began in October 2023 and continued through December 2023 is now officially closed.  Although we had many excited customers placing preorders for our products, we did not achieve the required threshold preorder quantities to enable a start of the mass production manufacturing process for the first run of inventory dedicated to retail sales.

Please don’t be discouraged!  We are implementing new and more conventional measures to secure the first run of available inventory for retail sales in 2024!  Our goal and estimation are to have products in stock by this summer, just in time for peak season fun and all your ESK8 adventures!  We will also be communicating updates this spring via our newsletter and notifications contact list, so don’t forget to sign up at the bottom of our homepage to stay informed directly.

And as a reminder to our preorder customers – everyone that placed a preorder will automatically be in the ‘front of the line’ once we have products available and those customers will have first choice to confirm the sale then be first to get their items shipped!

Also, we will be attending ESK8CON 2024 April 5th-7th in Las Vegas NV as an official vendor, so please stop by our booth to check out our amazing products with a hands and feet on experience allowing you to demo our performance enhancing technology on several name brand boards!

Thanks!  - David & Beth

Introducing the SHOCBOX for the Backfire Ranger X3! The first of its kind ESK8 product to offer the beneficial feature of a genuine suspension system for the board you already own or are purchasing. Experience a leap forward in capability and comfort with our SHOCBOX Hub Drive independent suspension system by transforming the Ranger X3 to a more advanced performance all-terrain platform.

The SHOCBOX Hub Drive is a patent pending true suspension system providing 40mm of sprung independent wheel travel for the ESK8 Backfire Ranger X3.

Made from 6061 T6 & 7075 T6 Aluminum CNC Black Anodized main body components, the SHOCBOX is strong and reasonably lightweight adding just under 4lbs to the Ranger X3.

The SHOCBOX utilizes a configuration of Chrome Silicon Torsion Springs concealed inside a centralized ‘box’ component with an innovative truck assembly design allowing for a ‘clean’ and condensed suspension system that is a unique and ideal nexus of form and function.

The SHOCBOX Hub Drive is also compatible with the factory DKP truck pivot and base plate of the Ranger X3.

The system offers quick installation onto a board with easy removal of the factory truck hangers without having to remove the original factory truck pivot and base plates. Simply take the existing hangers and wheels off the board (hub-motor wheels in the rear), install the SHOCBOX Hub Drive on the factory DKP pivot and base plate components (or upgraded SBS DKP/ SBS TKP*), reattach the wheels – done!

The SHOCBOX boasts another feature with the implementation of replaceable wheel axles. Four independent high-strength alloy steel wheel axles are seated inside precise 10mm bores and secured utilizing a fastener at each separate axle location allowing for easy removal and installation. New wheel axle sets are also available as a separate purchase to replace a damaged axle.

*compatible DKP & TKP Truck Pivot and Base Plate assemblies are available as an upgrade or new selection for purchase separately here, SBS DKP / SBS TKP, or from the home page drop-down menu
