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.

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.

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

Molded Baseplate and Hanger - Featuring a 356.2 virgin aluminum gravity molded baseplate with redesigned, faced hangers that have undergone a secondary heat treatment process for added strength and durability.

The baseplate also features a 6-hole design for your choice of new-school or old-school mounting.

Branded Kingpins and Axles - Branded Grade-8 steel kingpins and axles with tougher pivot cups for superior strength that's guaranteed to last.

Improved Kingpin Clearance - More kingpin clearance provides you with an easier, performance-driven carving experience.

Divine 90a Urethane Bushings - Featuring Paris's Divine 90a Urethane bushing formula for ultimate rebound and vibration dampening.

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

Forged Baseplate - Forged baseplates are compression molded, making them lighter, stronger, and more impact resistant in comparison to cast or poured-mold baseplates. Forged materials have a tighter molecular structure, letting them provide a stronger ride with less material. Forging also eliminates most common manufacturing defects and imperfections.

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.
