Category information Skateboard Trucks
The flow that defines skateboarding is transferred through your body, boards and trucks to pliantly unite with concrete. We are presenting you a wide range of trucks to choose from in all kinds of colors and sizes. Venture Trucks' 'Hollow Lights' or the magnesium models from Tensor are true featherweights. Besides Thunder, Independent, Polster, Silver, Destructo, Krux, Gullwing and Paris, they are the big names in the business. Being constructed seamlessly, you should take some things into consideration when you are about to choose the perfect counterpart for your deck.
First of all, it is important that the wide part of your truck, the hanger, which is connected to the base plate of your truck with a metal pin (kingpin) does not noticeably exceed the width of your board. As an orientation following metrics could be a small help. (The measurement of the trucks are meant to describe the span of your truck in between the wheels.)
The height of your trucks should be influenced by the size of your wheels. Low-trucks are good for wheels with a maximum diameter of 52 mm. Wheels with a diameter of 52mm-56 mm are best mounted onto mid-trucks. High-trucks are for most of the bigger wheels.
