Buyer's Guide: Trucks
Trucks generally come in LOW, MID, and HIGH styles.
LOW trucks are best for beginners because they are extra stable. They are also great for flip tricks for that reason.
MID trucks are the most common and versatile trucks, and are great for street or park skating.
HIGH trucks are best for cruising, carving and overall less technical skating.
The axle width, as a general rule, should be similar to the width of the deck.
