Overview
These were designed for surf-inspired turns with an easy flow and a smooth grind. The hanger makes you think old-school, but nothing about how the 44 can grind rails or jump stairs is from the '80s. Grab a pair today and find out what everyone wants to roll on.

Ace 44 Hi Skateboard Trucks
super great turning, thru out the lifetime. the 44's are 8.5" i dont know what they are talking about. i love the look of these a lot when grinded down. it's like indy and thunder had a baby and named it ace. the only thing i don't enjoy is i noticed the geometry is a lot different than indy. indy has so much forgiveness when landing. ace seems to easily lose it's balance when pressure is applied. be sure to not use big wheels with the low's if you like loose. i hope ace re-does some things about the model now, like i said they are unforgiving at times. i also noticed pressure-needed tricks are easier but can be less predictive. i loved these when i loved them but i'm gonna stick with indy(: Bushings: 8/10-take some time to break in. pivot cups are good too, but get squeaky fast.
Grinding: 8/10-they can slip off easily since they are rounded, maybe it's just the metal. be careful!
Speed: 7/10-when bombing hills they can get gnarly speed wobbles. i ate crap once when i first got them. of course it's my fault tho.
Durability: 7/10-they last a while, but not as much as indy. they grind for so long.
Weight: 8/10-pretty light. perfect honestly. maybe under the hangar could have some grooves for less weight.
Looks: 9/10-people always ask if those are indy's, haha. they look like them from far away. (co-manager made them, so duh)
Overall: 8/10-great but needs a few tiny improvements, at least for my preference.

The trucks are great, grind good, turn quick they are also pretty light. I did swap the bushings with bones, However this trucks axle length is actually 8.25" so these work better for boards 7.8-8.25. so i wouldnt recommend these if you are skating an 8.5

Best turning trucks on the market.

Ace 44 Hi Skateboard Trucks 2016 - silver
Based on early Indy geometry( stage 3 , I think) these trucks will turn deeper and smoother than any other. I have skated almost every truck brand made and until I tried these was an Indy only guy. Ace only from now on...
Pros: deep carvey turn, best for skaters that like LOOSE trucks or lots of bowl/ transition. 44's have about an 8.25/ 8.3 width so they are practical for many size decks. Stable at speed even though they turn deep.
Cons: stock bushings not great. These work best with Krux or Indy soft bushings if you want quick break in time. Also not for skaters that don't like loose trucks. I mean like floppy loose. Hanger takes a little break in for grinds but smooths out after a few sessions. Keep in mind some of the older ones have an odd hanger shape and look bent- they are not bent, it's the design.

A new take on the Independent stage 3 trucks that many old shool pros used to ride.
Try them for yourself.

Great turn

These have the turning quickness of thunders with the deep carve of indy's. Tactics is also carrying the new model with the thickened hangar, despite the old version being shown in the photos.

Grind great, turn better.

Ace 44 Hi Skateboard Trucks
Im not a guy to be super skate or die on one company, I like what I like... I wasn't a big fan of the stock bushings, I love double cone and bones bushings work great with these. All I can tell ya is if you love tranny, turning and awesome grinding, then you won't be dissapointed. (Watch out for speed wobbles, they are less stable since they are Hi's and skate looser than most) The kingpin is not ever in the way.. The axle strength is great, looks bent but that's because its supposed to lock in your grinds. But they aren't bent at all. The durability is good, but could be better. I got the raw 149's with a 8.25 Flip board. Perfect fit and style for me. 10/10 will buy again. Thanks Ace!!!
