Choosing the right skateboard trucks can make all the difference in your performance, stability, and control.
At the heart of skateboard trucks is the metal. Aluminum is the most common metal used for skateboard trucks, and for good reason - it's lightweight, durable, and can handle the impact of skateboarding. But not all aluminum is created equal. The grade of aluminum and the thickness of the truck affect the stiffness and weight of the truck. A lighter truck is better for flip tricks and technical skating, while a heavier truck is better for ramp and bowl skating.
But it's not just about the metal. The width and height of the truck are also important. Different widths and heights offer different benefits for your riding style. A wider truck provides more stability for ramp and bowl skating, while a narrower truck is better for street and flip tricks. The height of the truck affects the distance between the deck and the wheels, which can affect your turning radius and grind clearance.
