Overview

The Paris Savant 43° longboard trucks are upgraded versions of the classic V2 design with downhill and freeride-specific improvements. Paris precision machined each axle to ensure straightness and a secure fit in the hanger via their patented axle lock system. The hanger is now forged instead of cast to dramatically improve strength and prevent warping or breakage. The bushing seat has also been slightly tightened to deliver the needed stability for 60mph+ speeds without sacrificing that deep, predictable Paris turn you know. The Savant longboard trucks will last longer and perform better than any other Paris truck to date.

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.

Downhill - Dreams of dry mountain pass roads, switchbacks for days, and the rush of going into a corner at top speed all take good machining to make a reality. Downhill trucks are meant to have no slop, giving you ultimate board control. Just think, lower degree equals stability. As the angle between the base plate and hanger is reduced, stability is gained so if you have graduated beyond your neighborhood 10 second rush, start thinking about getting some trucks specifically designed to give you confidence at speed. Often stocked with a barrel/barrel bushing assembly, this is the traditional downhill setup. However, don't forget to check out different bushing options and try different durometers until you get your board dialed-in to your needs. Downhill trucks eliminate slop with details like pivot cup and bushing seating, strong kingpin materials, and precision machining. This being said, don't overthink it. Some of the best skaters have no clue about their gear, they just skate every day. So, if you are looking to fulfill your need for speed, you are in the right spot.

Baseplate Angle

43° - Good for downhill use or for more stability on shorter 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.

Hanger Style

Raked Hanger (Offset) - Raked hangers change the way you approach a corner. With a raked hanger, you can lean a lot further into a turn without the truck responding, but once you lean in far enough you'll get a lot of turn, fast. Because your wheels will be going straight for longer you will go faster so if you can handle it, go for it!

Bushing Shape

Barrel/Barrel - The Barrel/Barrel bushing combination is designed for speed. This setup offers stability for technical downhill, allowing the rider to dive into corners. Remember to check compatibility with your truck choice.

Manufacturing Technology

Lifetime Guarantee - Covered under manufacturer lifetime guarantee against breakage defects in hanger/base materials or workmanship. This lifetime warranty DOES NOT cover broken trucks due to abuse or neglect, damage caused by any modification done outside the manufacturer's facility, or lost or worn out parts due to lack of hardware maintenance.

Sorry, but getting your trucks run over by mom's SUV does not qualify as a manufacturer's defect.

Non-Compatible Risers

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

Arbor, Bear, Diamond, Dooks, Girl, Independent, Krooked, Lucky, Rayne, Sector 9, Thunder
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.

Great product

Paris Savant 43 Degree Longboard Trucks - red/black (180mm)
The Paris Savant trucks are great. They do exactly what I need them to do. Stability with great turning characteristics even at speed. I will buy another pair of these for my other deck soon. I wish they were packaged a little better for shipping. When you pay 150$ for a product you would expect it to arrive in new unmarried condition. The hangers hav some scraped in them when they arrived. That being said... Anyone that skates knows the hangers are going to get scraped up anyhow from road debris. The service from tactics has been great. The shipping was prompt and timely. Kudos! I will buy from them again. My experience with the company and the product were excellent with the exception of the above mentioned packaging. Thanks!
