If you're looking for a great cruising truck that can do a little bit of everything, these are the way to go, especially for beginners. I've had them for about 6 months and they're in good shape, no bending or anything. My only complaint is that the pivot cups started squeaking recently but it was an easy fix (if that happens to you, check out rat vision's video on youtube).
These are good trucks, the bushings are terrible, but the trucks them selves are great. Also these are much lighter than Caliber's, which I also have.
these trucks are not well appreciated in my view. yes I would prefer caliber or bears for freeride but when I look back on using these you had absolutely NO speed wobble! im looking into a downhill deck and im using my old gullwings for it no speed wobbles and great price! only cpn is stock bushings
There are better.
Trucks work for a first board, or a beginner setup, but I wouldn't recommend them over a Caliber or Bear Grizzly. Calibers are a personal fav, but these are great trucks all around, just replace the bushing.
ORDER DIFFERENT BUSHINGS
These things squeak like hell with the default bushings and pivot cups literally after 10 mins of riding they squeak, they are still great trucks though, thick hanger and smooth turns
Great for any style
as i read others and it wasn't only me, the bushings that come with this...well in a hour ot two they almost tore in two, luckly i had back ups but I do recomend these bad arss trucks just also buy a set of harder bushings, and for thoes who don't know, bushings and those rubber (really type of soft plastic) things that go between the bolt and the axle part of you trucks. all in all great set of trucks, just keep in mind of buying a different set of bushings. Have fun and don't let fear stop you from what you love doing!
dear dan how much do these trucks weigh in pounds ---Dan Loveland Writes - The Charger trucks weigh 2.2 LBS. Have a nice day.
these trucks blow
do not buy they are bad for basically everything, buy some paris 180s or paris 195s if u want a wider truck. so now that u have this info do urself a favor and do not buy these
dont listen to the review saying these are bad dh trucks, because they are in fact some of the best and most stable trucks ive ever used. they also have an outstanding ability to turn sharp with out being to agressive. beat paris and randals by far.
CHANGE THE BUSHINGS
good truck just change the bushing best on top mounts and can handle the beatings, nice and light. even still randal and paris are better
Got these set up on my landy totem chili along with yellow khiro bushings (barrel on bottom, cone on top). The result is carvyness and stability as well. People told me that 10" is too wide and is going to suck at carving, but im 6'1 and 165, and my board rips with this set-up.
Great trucks!! Definitely the best I've ever ridden. They wont turn as much as randal's or paris' but they make up for that in the way they come stock. I recommend not changing the bushings because the stock ones are absolutely great. They are super turny when loose, but become stable when tight. The trucks lock in when you gain speed, eliminating speed wobbles. The way this truck comes stock is excellent for pumping, and excellent for everything else too. Definitely pick up a set.
Great trucks, shitty bushings
I bought these at my local skateshop because they were out of calibers and i was desperate. once I got them on a board I noticed that the stock bushings had an incredible amount of dive and didnt return to center very well. they are a tall and short cone but I'm not sure of the durometer. I put some venom DH's on them and they shred. The pivot cup squeaks a little at low speeds and i think ill have to replace it soon but I'm very happy with this truck it turns fantastic is stable enough for DH and works awesome for freeride. I would suggest these to anyone looking for a truck that can do whatever they throw at it
super good and stable yet..
i have these on my s9 godess and i feel in luv with them i never had 1 speedwobble even at 50 once u r goin around 14 u carve so nice and smooth. you might wanna get different bushings and cups in case they get cut up. happend 2 me 300 pound cousin tryin 2 carve lol buy them they are so nice
Great all around trucks
I have these set up on my 42" sector nine burliegh and im loving these.....they are surprisinglly good for carving and i have gone 25Mph+ and have never had speed woble
Little disappointed - bushings suck
I just got these set up on a 46in sector 9 and first go they were getting nasty wheel bite. I think the bushing are the problem. They are super soft when you first get them and I tightened them down so much that I blew the bottom one out. Change the bushings to a harder duro. These are fun trucks and I had a blast on these. They handle speed very well and still were able to carve like a mug. I recommend them with the extra hard bushings. Im 6ft and 185.
Get the chargers!!
Crazy freakin boarder
I ride 10" black chargers on my S9 Uluwatu with the 72mm Neversummers and I'm telling you from longboarder to the world of longboarders.... Get the chargers!! You will understand when you ride them. Enough said with that alone, but the bushings rock stock and the texture paint is siiiick. Jim Carver baseplates. Come on, you must me drooling by now!
Stable for du great for free ride
I started out on these with the stock bushings and they were carveable and stable. I threw some khiro barrels on them and they were solid as a rock(45mph). Now I ride them super loose with a kooky bushings setup and they are great! Outperformed every other truck (except for my grizzlies) in aspect of versatillity. Pick up a pair fa sho
Not that stable
Ive been reading up lots of reviews about how stable the truck is and how good the stock bushings are... In my opinion bear grizzlys are WAY more stable, specially with thir stock orange bushings. As for the stock bushings on the charger I think, as all other stock bushings (aside from the bears) they suck, they r stiff as hell. I got a pair of orange khiro barrells and the truck completely changed, It carves super smooth and you can tighten the king pin for added stability. Id descibe it as a grat carving truck once you change the bushings!!!
Awesome the best
Ive had theese trucks for 2 years and I love Them . People say dog crap about it but theyre boss they are very durable I highly recommend theeze Keep em pretty tight or u mite get speed wobbles
Pretty boss trucks
Sick carve, great sliding trucks, awesome dh trucks, they are surprisingly stable considering the way they throw the turns, I reccomend this for the guy who is in an area where he wants to shred the flats but also wants to do some dh, if u want just megacarve then go with Paris. This trucks more versatile
Skateboarded for years when I was younger. Just got into longboarding this year after not skating since I got vehicular transportation. But I def like em. The stock bushing were real soft so I did some mix matching with some hard khiros. And I must say I def got a carvy setup.first setup was very tight. Hard a khiro barrel on bottom but replaced that with the stock bushing and it was making a complete circle in about 6ft. Def can setup for how u want it to ride. Just don't be a Noob and start bombing hills and freeriding without finding ur proper bushing setup.
amazing well rounded truck
so Ive had the trucks for about a year and they are amazing great for carving, pumping,amazing for downhill i hit over 35mph and no wobbles, good for sliding.
Super stable, no wobbles, but carving is a bit limited below 10 MPH. Once up to speed they carve nicely. I would categorize them as a budget DH truck, but not an all arounder. Excellent for a beginner wanting to avoid wobbles and bomb some hills with some GS thrown in. These trucks require very little / no changes (e.g. bushings), they come dialed in for their purpose.
DONT BUY THESE TRUCK
TERIBLE FOR DH.... DONT BUY THEM UNLESS YOU LIKE WAISTING MONEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1
These are the best trucks in my opinion. Once you switch out the default bushings and add venom bushings, it is amazing. I highly recommend gullwing chargers. And btw, ive had gullwing stalkers, and imo these are better if you wanna carve.
not bad not great.
These came on my sector nine "Luke" 57 inch board. The board itself. Is massive and these trucks helped it BOMB these hills really nice. But after 6 runs the stock bushings FAILED!!!!! No warning. They started to squeak and then the ass of the board was a mess. I've had a couple different sets of bushings and I can't seem to find a combo that really works for me yet. Bombing/ carving. I'm thinking a wider set of wheels. And some khiro aluminum insert bushings should keep this thing in check. Just ditch the bushings BEFORE you bolt the trucks up..
Ok for carving
These trucks are ok for carving, but even when they were tightened up i wobbled around 35.
you got to find the right bushing set for your style. the bushing seat when flipped is super super snug great for stem shaped bushings pumpkins,eliminators etc. when their not flipped their still pretty snug.so you got to put conical shaped bushing for carving.
