The Grizzly 852 Gen 5 longboard trucks from Bear have been revamped and redesigned to focus on strength, versatility and weight reduction. Improvements include a stronger heat treated axle with a revised and less restrictive bushing seat. The baseplate now features an 8-hole mounting system to accommodate both old and new-school drill patterns.
This pattern can also be used to adjust wheel bases by the inch. Strength tested and engineered for performance, the 852 Gen 5 is an improvement on an industry standard.
Set of 2 Trucks
Raked Hanger (Offset)
Specialized Casting Formula:
Completely new aluminum alloy formula, specifically mixed for this truck and not pulled from some generic melted down block.
Widened Rear Baseplate Legs:
Added thickness to eliminate baseplate warping and help withstand heavy impacts.
Effective Bushing Seat:
Fully-wrapped leaning system with bushing base lock-in. This allows you to get extra lean and no turning restrictions. Compatible with most bushings.
The positive (standard) and negative (flipped) leverage axle placement helps you change your setup from general carving to a stable hill bombing machine in seconds.
Board Range (in):

Bear Grizzly Gen 5 52 Degree Longboard Trucks - black 181mm
I was attracted to these by the mirror like finish, and then I read the description of how refined they were and I was hooked so I juggled some bills and bought a set. Man I'm glad I did, I got the best ride and turning I've ever had. I wonder why the more expensive trucks, the Kodiak's, don't come with these same specs? Would like to see precision axle-hanger junctions but to be honest I don't have any problems with these stock Grizzleys, they are INSANELY rad!!

Nice for some speed, carving, and a little bit of everything
These are my first pair of trucks, and I was surprised at first at how smooth they turned. They do wiggle a bit at speeds. I was going 35 and they were dancing like crazy, but I had them very loose for carving. That's the other thing, they are magnificent carvers. Quick, responsive turns with a lot of customization, great trucks

Can do some decent carving but have been stable at higher speeds (~30mph). I'm using stock bushings - they could be softer/more set up for carving, but stock, they're a great balance of turnability and stability. I'm rocking 75mm rayne's and haven't had wheelbite on my Landyachtz Battle Axe.
