not bad trucs, handlde well and can bust into slides fairly easily. one major porblem is the pivot cups. terrible pivot cups that practiczly shatter after a couple of months riding. if replaced with riot cups much better
thses trucks are the bomb i love these they are perfect for any use from slideing to downhill and cruising around town just a over all amazing truck i recommend them to all my friends but they are lame and have bear 852s so if you want a goood truck but dont want bears get paris they are the one for you
love these trucks but the hanger got scratched then got rusted. thought they wouldn't rust cause they're made of aluminum
Good but not stellar
These are certainly capable trucks and great to carve and go fast with but the stock bushings could be better. I like them i just dont feel the hype. i give 3.5stars. Get Bears they are the stuff.

These trucks are pretty good. alot of my buddies have them and liked them but i was kinda dissapointed in them. I mostly used them for freeride. DH they arent so hot. My friend had khiro bushings put in his and they are way better than what they were. the stock bushing arent so good. I had 2 set and one of the hangers on one set kinda bent. barely tho.
Best trucks for the Bucks
Based on the style that made the Randals so popular, these definately improve, not just in durability, but stability and style. These are the best truck you can get without going into the incredibly expensive range.
do Paris trucks use the old- or new- school hole pattern? Thanks. Dan Loveland Writes - Currently the Paris 180mm and 150mm feature the new school hole pattern only. Paris is working on making a truck with both hole patterns.
do these come stock with venom bushings? if so, what duro? Dan Loveland Writes ------ Paris trucks are shipping with Venom bushings in 90a Durometer.
Do you know when will new ones come in, or are the black randalls pretty much the same, because from what i've read they're basically the same. Dan Loveland Writes - We have the new Paris on order. As soon as they arrive at Paris we will have them on the site with new images. Randals are made in the US. That is all I can say.
Got these because i was new to longboarding and wanted the best. Have tried heaps of different bushings but love the orange 79 durometer ones because they made all the difference.
Great trucks tightened they are stable loose they are very carvey. Paris' warranty is amazing GREAT BUY!
Hello, I was wondering what bushing I should upgrade to, because everyone says you should upgrade them on the Paris. I want to Cruise, Carve, and slide (when I learn how to). Can you post a link here of the bushing I should get on your website. Thanks DBS your the best ;) Dan Loveland Writes - You can use the Khiro Randal Replacement Kit. Basically 2 sets of khiro combo insert bushings large with 2 flat 3/8" inch bottom washers. Here is the link - http://www.daddiesboardshop.com/index.asp?PageAction=VIEWPROD&ProdID=63
Hi, will these go with the ly drop carve wood?---------Dan Loveland Writes - I don't believe Paris trucks will mount on the Drop Carve Wood. Have a good day.
I bought these trucks to replace my original s8s on my honey amp 6 longboard. I am extremly impressed with the performance. They have an amazing carving feel with venom standards, and they are also very stable despite how much they turn. I have no problem carving and bombing at 30- 35 on these trucks. I think they are as stable as my Bear 1052s and they carve much better, and i believe they are the same price. Overall excellent performance, highly recommended for anyone.
I have a friend who works for loaded that said paris was making efforts towards developing a better stock bushing for their trucks. do you know anything about this? Dan Loveland Writes - Paris might have new bushings in the works but I am not positive. I do know Randal has new bushings as we just received a case of new Randal 150's with the newest bushing design. It looks like Randal built in the flat top and bottom washer into the bushing. Somewhat similar the the Khiro Combo Insert. We will have to wait and see what Paris comes up with. Thanks.
I have had these trucks for about 2 months now and they carve and slide and bomb like hell , never had any problems with the wobbles . The only thing i didnt like about them was that on the bottom bushing washer which is flanged has a slightly bigger hole in it than is the size of the kingpin so on really hard and fast turning there is a little clicking sound as the truck rebounds to its other side as the washer is forced to move a tiny bit from side to side. The clicking was driving me crazy so i fixed the problem by putting a very thin rubber washer under the bushing washer between the washer and the truck . seems to have done the trick . Hey Dan , maybe i could also use khiro bushings with the flat washer , what do you think.
i just got a set of these 4 my board and i couldnt have made a better choice
I just got them on a loaded dervish complete with 70 mm 81a zig zags and these are absolutely sick. other than a rattleing noice that only happens when the bushings are under no load (aka not turning) its awesome. they work excellentsly with the board and look better than the classic randals
I love these trucks, I like them much more than Randals, because the Paris seem a little more turny. I've got a pair on my Loaded Vanguard, and another pair on my LBL Old School Dancer. The only downside is they are made in China, which is a bit of a downer (I try and buy things made in the USA) but whatever.
I love these trucks. They are much better then Randals.
I ordered a complete tan tien board with these trucks and they are great! one flaw though is they make the most annoying high pitched noise. I can't find where its coming from because i lubed up every part, replaced every nut and bolt, and made sure it wasn't by wheels. other than the noise they are great.
i ordered the landachtz switch and these trucks earlier this morning. i was wondering if they come with the hardware to mount them onto the board????---Dan Loveland Writes --- You need to order hardware.
Amazing truck, it's just that.....
I ordered these trucks on a Never Summer Heist complete. Perfect trucks! Stable, fun for carving and pretty light. They also look great! Though I do have a con that's not really about the trucks, but how I got them. I got a silver baseplate and black hanger. What's up with that? It looks kinda ugly from side view and top view of the board.
Great, except for two things:
I really love these trucks, ride a dervish and the design is cool, they feel great with the right bushings and I'm glad I got these.But there is two things that could have been different. 1: The stock bushings felt like crap compared the Khiros I replaced them with; 79a and 90a khiro double barrel bushings and now my ride is much better! :) 2: The biggest con is the kingpin is knurled, so if you break it you might have a hard time finding a replacement. Or if you want a longer one, you just have to buy a regular 3" and glue it on, cause there is no 3" knurled kingpin that I have heard of or found...
I use paris 180mm black trucks on my Original Apex 37, and I love it, the bushings is ok, someone who knows what bushings I need ?
Fantastic all around truck
Ive had these trucks a few weeks now and i absolutly love them. They're the first pair ive actually owned but ive ridden other setups on friends boards and i have to say nothing compares they are soooooo turny they carve so hard much more then randals and even bears. They are suprisingly stable too i can hit like 20-30 without flipping the hangars or even tightening them and once you do flip em and tighten them up a bit they can easily hit 45+. Only downsides ive noticed so far is they like to squeak even after i used soap shavings didnt help nor did lube. And theres like a small bit of extra metal or paint or something on the axle so if you try to put bearings on without a speed ring it gets kinda stuck on but just use speed rings all in all amazing paris has done an awesome job.
ive had these trucks for my dervish and love them im getting a pair for my new tan tien
Since when are there new paris 180's and what is the difference? Dan Loveland Writes - Here is the deal. The original Paris only have/had a new school hole pattern. The V2 Paris will sport the new school and old school hole pattern. This way they can mount onto longboards with old school hole patterns. We have cases of the new trucks on order. They should be here soon. You can see them in the latest Concrete Wave magazine. I will update this site as soon as they arrive.
These are great trucks! i have them on my dervish and they rip!! work best with double barrels. When will these come back in stock?
These are great trucks,very stable at medium speeds of 25-30mph.also decent for carving and very durable.the only issue i have had with these is speed wobbles when carving at high speeds but thats mainly a user mistake on my part.
These are such an improvement from R-II Randal 180s when it comes to pumping and carving. They feel almost about the same in stability compared to the 50 degree randal 180s.
These trucks are amazing!(as in title). iv had these bout a week now and i must say there great for carving and some mild downhill. i still have stock bushings ans there good for me, they turn well and take speed. i recomend them to anyone who like to carve the s@#t out of the road and like to and bomb the hills like a b-52.
These trucks are amazing. I used to ride sidewinders (Great carving truck) these are better and more stable. If you are a lightweight rider you should get new bushings. Im 110lbs. and i got 81a venom super carves. The stock bushings are venoms but they are hard as rocks.
These trucks seem to me to be very stable yet they can carve well enough with the standard bushings, I haven't really tried any other bushings yet but I will soon be using Venom cone bushings. After a while they can squeak some as said below, but this can be fixed if you lube/ put shreds of a soap bar in the pivot cup! Great trucks!
They're like the revised version of Randals
this truck has it all, the stabability, the buttery carves, and the looks the stock bushings are allright, but i needed to switch to softer bushings because i'm on the lighter side (the stock bushings are about 95a) i also had to change the cupped washers to flat washers because of an annoying rattling noise these trucks really impressed me so i highly recommend them to anyone
i love paris
trucks tht i usually ride on are the 10" gullwing chargers. these paris trucks which i recently got are by far the best trucks i hav ridden yet. they are stable in DH but will carve at your very whim (keep in mind tht the bushings hav alot to do with the responsiveness and what kind of ride you're looking for). i recommend venom bushings. GO LONGBOARD!!
very good trucks just over time they tend to bend and scratch easy but other than that they are light a good size and great for the money and i would recommend them.
very stable with lots of control. have it on Vanguard with 76mm abecs and it's the best!!
What is the difference between these and the Randal 180's? Dan Loveland Writes - The Paris and Randal trucks are very similar. You can get the Paris in Black so that is probably the main difference.
will the paris 180mm's be back in stock?!?! Dan Loveland Writes - Yes, we are waiting for the new 6 hole baseplate Paris 180mm trucks. I will post new photos as soon as we have them in stock. Thanks
