Randal R-II 180mm Longboard Trucks - 42 Degree - SET OF TWO



Quick Overview

Randal R-II 180mm 42 Degree Skateboard Trucks - Set of 2 Trucks - The longboard truck that started it all.
New mounting hardware will ensure that your board has a safe and secure ride.
Whether you need different durometers or just want backups, aftermarket bushings are a great way to give your trucks longer life and a fully customized feel.
Used to keep the bolts on your board nice and tight and/or to assemble the board.
Lubricant and cleaning kits are used to keep the bearings in the wheels turning quickly and smoothly; if this is your first board, these upgrades are not necessary. Make sure you love to ride first!

The Randal R-II 42 degree 180mm trucks are great for high speed downhill and freeriding. With a 42 degree baseplate, you can expect to get more stability with the same bushing set up as you would with the 50 degree baseplate due to the reduced angle that the kingpin sits at. Randals are made in the U.S.A. and built to last so you can ride with the confidence of 100% lifetime warranty.

Kingpin Problems for drop through
I got the black version but i had to put them on a drop through board, i finally got one truck on it but the other one, the kingpin would not budge and the nut wouldn't come off of the bottom on the baseplate. Randal trucks have a lot of manufacturing problems and I just hate how i have to buy new ones so i can actually ride on my drop through. I cannot even take apart these trucks and flip the hangar or even take off the bushing and the nut on the baseplate. Could be made better, so i think it deserves 3 stars.
mounting hardware?
do randal II trucks come with mounting harware (nuts&bolts)? thanks in advance --- Dan Loveland Writes - No, you need to order the correct size and type of hardware for the longboard you are assembling.
R-II 180's with the 42's rock!
I have been riding these trucks for about 2 months now and I truly love them. I have taken them down small hills at 35 mph (checked speed with a truck), ridded them miles from rural, to town, to city with no problem. I chose the 42 degree base plate for the stability I wanted for hills and long distance riding. As your attorney, I advise you to purchase these trucks from Daddies Board Shop. Thank you for your time.
Good Trucks
I have used / tried several reverse kingpin trucks since I started longboarding this summer: Grizzlies, chargers, crails, alpines, and now Randals. They all do the job fine, but I finally got around to the Randals last cause I heard they were looser than some of the others. Glad I waited, cause I am just now beginning to appreciate looser trucks. These trucks in 42 degrees will shock you with how loose they feel with the stock bushings, however I love them and am getting some of the best carving runs to date with them. I am sure they could run tighter with a bushing change, but I am keeping em stock for now. One caveat to the glowing review is a less than perfect casting at one of the hanger ends (not fully perpendicular to the axle, so bearings don't sit flush against the hanger) - it bugs me a little, probably really does not affect performance, buth other than that trucks are perfect.
eh.... really nice, but could be better
I really like the restricting bushing seat and I love the baseplate angle and I love how light the truck is overall and all that good stuff... I HATE that the kingpin is facing the other way... besides that it is the most solid reverse kingpin truck on the market today. Especially for the price
Good Truck
I received these trucks along with a Landy DH race board, Abec 11 83mm flywheels and a set of purple Xtra hard Khiro bushings. Needless to say i have what is in my mind one hell of a race board thanks to daddies board shop. Being that they are set at 42 degrees and equiped with the Khiros make these extremely stable at speed. I definatley could'nt be happier with the help i received and he board i got.
So I'm gonna go in depth on these things to help you decide if you wanna purchase them. I personally love them. The angle is great, they turn well, don't use these if you plan on carving though, I use them because I am a more downhill oriented rider. I flipped the hangar on em and put the 85a/87a double barrel venom bushing combo on them on my Evo (I weigh 142lbs). I have 80a in heats. The board turns as well as it did before when I had 85a/90a venom double barrel on bear grizzly trucks with a flipped hangar. The board leans harder but gives a little less turn, basically, it is more stable on a bumpy surface because it absorbs the leaning without jerking the board. It also gives a lot more traction for sliding. You feel more locked in. The trucks will carve better on a board that doesn't have wedged angles. It'd prolly carve great for a flat top mount board, it'd be a great truck for speedboarding with drop through mounting.. All in all, best cheap dh truck out there. I'd like to put the paris 195mm hangar on and see how that works. P.S. Unless you are running harder duro bushings, use the cup washers, it is really loose with the flat washers. Hope this long review helped :)
The anonymous 1-star reviews are wack. Randall supplies the kingpins in "retard mode" but the nut and bolt head are the same size, so flipping them around takes only a matter of minutes. -Unscrew the kingpin and remove the hangar/bushings. -Remove the nut on the underside of the baseplate, if it doesn't fall out on its own. -Insert the kingpin through the underside of the bseplate. -Reassemble in "common-sense mode". Now you don't have to fight it while changing bushings.
If you dont ride these, you are doing it wrong.
These are by far the best all around trucks on the market. I use these on my dervish, my evo, and my LBL dancer. They may also be one of the heaviest trucks around but with that weight comes three things; 1) Steeze 2) More Steeze 3) The Ladies If you dont ride these, you are doing it wrong.
