Overview
The Caliber II Fifty longboard trucks have been re-designed with a stronger baseplate and hanger. The 50° hanger provides more stability at speed and is an optimal angle for strong carves. The kingpin is made of grade 8 steel to ensure your trucks stay in one piece, no matter how hard you push.

Ride Style

Freeride - You need responsive trucks with charged rebound and a large turning radius to lock in stand up slides and pre-drifts like a boss. Freeride trucks generally have a higher degree between the base plate and axle. This gives the rider a steeper slope of motion for the hanger making it easier to get in and out of a slide with control. You will often find a barrel/cone or cone/cone bushing assembly in these trucks for the same reason. The higher the quality the truck is, the less you think about it as you ride. A good truck will give you more board feel and more stability. Don't forget to look at customizing the bushings to rider weight and skate style.

Carving/Cruising - Big California style carves, epic summertime adventures around the neighborhood, and everyday shenanigans are supported with trucks flexible enough to handle a bit of everything. You'll find these trucks to have a higher truck angle because this is what controls the amount of energy required to turn your board. Bigger angles equal big carves and a quick response to your movement. Stock bushings tend to be on the softer side for cruising making these trucks great for everyday use and for beginners alike. Make sure to go with the recommended truck width for your board to give you the best match and the most fun.

Hanger Style

Symmetrical Hanger - Symmetrical hangers are the standard. Sometimes it's best to go with what is tried and true. Symmetrical hangers will turn evenly as your weight is redistributed and are great for all kinds of skating.

Baseplate Angle

50° - Good for more effortless turning and carving, or for handling boards with longer wheel bases.

The truck angle you select will switch up how your longboard or cruiser handles. A lower angle truck will require more lean for your turn, where as a higher angle will give you more turn for your lean. Generally speaking, higher angle trucks will be more suited for turning and carving and lower angle trucks will be more stable and better suited for speed.

Bushing Shape

Barrel/Cone - If you like cruising and carving, but also enjoy the thrill of the hill, you need a wide range of motion. With a boardside barrel and roadside cone you'll benefit from both stability and turnability. This the most common stock setup. With so many different durometers available you can be assured, in this case; common isn't plain or ordinary.

Sizing Reference

Sizing Image - Every truck company seems to represent their truck sizing a little differently, so it's easy to get confused, particularly if you're new to skateboarding. To avoid any potential confusion take a look at this image and then reference the size chart.

Non-Compatible Risers

Risers from the following brands are not compatible with the baseplates of these trucks.

Diamond, Independent, Paris
Details

Reverse Kingpin - Reverse kingpins offer increased stability at high speeds and generally provide more strength when compared to traditionally mounted trucks. The reverse nature of the kingpin makes the truck higher and usually heavier, giving you the best controlled turns for downhill bombing.

Caliber Caliber II Fifty Longboard Trucks - raw silver
Love the reverse king pin. Makes in and out much less likely to get hung up unexpectedly. Being able to completely remove rake by flipping the hanger is killer too. By far the best out there and the price just cant be beat. First rate quality and performance.

Caliber Caliber II Fifty Longboard Trucks
Bought these for an arbour catalyst deck, then switched them to my new loaded tan Tien, and still work great. all scratched on the bottom from curbs but still ride perfect, seem pretty indestructible. Great buy for any first cruising deck
