ArmorChilloz FluxFluid - Finest Quality Ferrofluid
Hotrod your ride by cooling down your motor and increasing efficiency!
ArmorChilloz FluxFluid bridges the air-gap between the magnets and the stator with a high tech fluid that contains nanoparticles of magnetic material that have been carefully dispersed in an oil based carrier fluid.
The primary benefit of this product is significantly more rapid heat transfer from the stator to other areas of the motor assembly, which can act as a large heatsink, increasing the rate of overall cooling, as well as initially absorbing a great deal of heat, making it harder to overheat your motor.
Secondary effects are gains in power and efficiency, because the air gap has been effectively reduced, this will increase the efficiency of the motor’s operation, which means you can produce more power with less strain on the controller.
Installation is easiest during a bearing change or hub swap - at which time you can simply spread the product onto the magnets directly. After removal of the stator, spread the product onto the magnets evenly - ensuring material is evenly distributed. Replace the stator and operate as you normally would.
Currently we are recommending between 7-9ml in the Onewheel GT.
Ferrofluids like ArmorChilloz have been in use in electric motors for over a decade now, and while there are exceedingly few reports of problems, it must be noted that direct testing of this product has been limited to a short duration, with longer term data unavailable.

UPDATED WARRANTY NOTICE / ONEWHEEL GT INFORMATION
We temporarily suspended sales of Armor-Chilloz in mid 2022 due to a report of a Onewheel GT motor dropping a magnet in the motor after installation of Armor-Chilloz.
After a lengthy investigation, we have determined that it would seem that some GT motors have insufficient glue on the magnets, leading to the magnets to lose adhesion, and release from the backing plate in the motor. Our research on this issue indicates that Armor-Chilloz has no discernable negative effect, and may slow or prevent this problem, as it can keep overall motor temperatures lower. Please be aware that despite this fact, the manufacturer may cite the use of Armor-Chilloz or other ferrofluids as a reason to not honor their warranty. Please be aware of this, and know that you are responsible for the risk to your warranty coverage as well as any risk that may exist to your motor. As of late 2022, the instances of this have been VERY rare - and universally affect only extreme riders who are pushing the boards way beyond the typical limits. In the one 'controlled' test we did, our pro rider was able to kill a brand new GT motor without 'Chilloz' in well under a single day - while it took him nearly a week to kill the next GT motor with 'Chilloz'... Not a perfect test, but a good indicator that Armor-Chilloz is providing at least some level of prevention on this issue, but we still must be clear that this is 'experimental' still and you are using it at your own risk. Ride hard, stay cool!
