- Hollow Axle & Kingpin
- Set of 2 Trucks
Hollow Axle & Kingpin - Hollow axle trucks cut down on the materials used in the axle, so your trucks feel lighter. Hollow kingpins further reduce weight while still maintaining strength in this critical area.
Risers from the following brands are not compatible with the baseplates of these trucks.
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.
Forged - Forged baseplates are compression molded making them lighter, stronger, and more impact resistant compared to cast or poured-mold baseplates. Forging also eliminates the most common manufacturing defects and imperfections.
|Size||8.25 axle||8.5 axle|
|Board Range (in):||8.0 - 8.5||8.25 - 8.75|
That being said, these redesigned Crailtap trucks are fantastic. The turn feels similar to Venture. Not as carvy as Indy, but they do turn. The stock bushings are very good, but I put in Bones hards because I prefer a tighter truck.
The metal looks very porous on both the hanger and the baseplate. After grinding a few times, a more shiny layer of metal is revealed and they start moving better. I would say the grind is similar to a Venture. Maybe not the best, but they work.
The wheelbase is the same as Indy (they add +3.125" to your deck wheelbase).
Overall great trucks at a bargain price
