Overview
The Paris V2 longboard trucks have been re-engineered with stronger faced hangers, longer lasting pivot cups, and improved kingpin clearance for a better carve. The 180mm hanger is the go-to size for most decks and complements all riding styles. The baseplate angle is 50°, which provides the best balance between stability and maneuverability. This is the ultimate ride experience in a compact, performance package.

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

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. Designed with racing in mind, raked hangers can give you added stability when making minor body weight adjustments on your board, but for the same reason the transition into a corner can be a bit jerky. Once you learn when the truck will engage into a turn, it will start to feel amazingly responsive. Because your wheels will be going straight for longer you will go faster! So if you can handle it, go for it!

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.

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.

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.

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

Paris V2 50 Degree Longboard Trucks - raw/raw (150mm)
I built a 30" to 7.5" Longboard (I call it Shortboard) with a drop through mount and cutouts, so I was looking for trucks that'd fit the width of my board. I only found those and another set this size and because I used some Paris stuff before I decided on those and I'm glad I did. They're awesome!

Asked by Sam on 8/30/2017
It looks like the base plate has raised lettering on it. Would this have any effect to mounting to a dropthrough deck?
Answered by Graig A (Tactics Employee) on 8/31/2017
This will not effect the trucks while mounted on a drop through, most Arbor drop through completes come with these trucks on them and the baseplate sits flush to the top of the deck.

Asked by TMCE on 1/8/2017
do the trucks come with an allen key and a wrench
Answered by Danny M (Tactics Employee) on 1/8/2017
No, these trucks just come by themselves, Allen keys are typically sold with the hardware.
