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 often 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 board 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.

Non-Compatible Risers

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

Diamond, Independent, Paris
Sizing Reference

Note - Every skate truck brand represents their sizing a little differently, so it's easy to get confused. Take a look at this graphic and then reference the size chart.

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.

I’ve had these trucks for about half a month or so and have been skating them every day. Perfect for carving and bombing hills (Preferably Venom Plug Bushings for Bombing Hills). Great quality! Love em a lot.

Caliber Caliber II Fifty Longboard Trucks - blackout
They are good mid priced RKP trucks , they do dent easily, but overall the build quality and tolerances are great. I got them for a landyachtz sidewalker relay to replace the stock regular kingpin trucks and they fit the bill nicely. Satisfied with the purchase and would buy again for any 9" longboard or cruiser board.
