Description:

One of the world's leading precision trucks now comes in a cast version! The new Ronin Cast Trucks are ready to dominate your freeride setups with all the the unique features in an affordable package. They feature a 180mm hanger with a 42.5 degree baseplate, making them extremely stable. What separates these trucks from normal trucks is their support pin, which supports the hanger when the weight of the rider is on it, rather than having the weight crush down on the bushings. This pin also creates a second pivot point to give you the truest lean and turn out of your trucks, giving you even more stability and control. They also come stock with 92a "Fruit Punch" bushings that add to the great rebound and give you those sweet fluid turns. The cherry on top is that all the components of the Ronin Cast Trucks are compatible with the Precision Ronin's, letting you switch parts and pieces as you please.

A lot of bushing experimentation need, but now I can't go back to any other cast truck
Heads up, long review:
Will start of by saying the only downside I can find with Ronins cast line is the weight. Will give you arms a good workout, probably won't be able to pull ollies, but wont stop you from doing tiger claws, big spins, etc. Also the time it took to find the perfect bushing setup is another downside, but of course that will differ for everyone.

Ronin's support pin really has a huge effect on the truck. It makes leaning and turning take so much less effort, and because of this, bushing duro should definitely not be underestimated. At 170lb, I usually use an average of ~89a bushings, so I thought dual 95a barrels should be fine. Was very wrong. Had to go with either 95a barrel w/ 95a riptide APS chubby, or 95a barrel with 100a barrel. A lot of experimentation had to be done but the end result was just so versatile and still feels like sex under my feet.

The support pins' relief of angled force, that is produced when leaning in a turn, not only makes the truck feel fluid and much easier to lean, but when you are in a deep lean in a turn, there is still little resistance to stop you from changing your turn angle/radius. Combined with the huge rake, gripping corners is so much easier, and you feel like you can easily adjust your line.

Many people won't use Ronins for freeride because they grip longer in the turn before hitting a point of resistance where your energy leaning, turns into energy to push the board sideways. I found this easily solved with a Riptide APS tall chubby boardside. For me it worked best when the chubby was the same duro as the boardside barrel (95a). The extra urethane made the end of the lean come much earlier in the turn and makes it very enjoyable freeridable, feeling like an extremely stable Paris 43° except without the unpredictability of Paris' lack of bushing seat & centre point, and with dive. Despite the resistance to the lean coming earlier, you can still easily adjust your lines in turns with a chubby boardside because of the large amount of rake.

It is of course known that the truck is great for high speeds. Apart from how it takes corners, it is still stable due to being a low angle. The easy lean doesn't reduce its stability as long as you already know how to tuck properly, and have an ideal bushing setup for your weight and deck width. The support pins also keeps the centre point very strong and predictable, despite the fact that no bushing seat actually exists. Not much else to add here.

Of course if you simply don't like the feeling of the liveliness that is created with large rake, then not much else will change that. But if you've bought a pair and about to sell them, I'd highly recommend really tinkering with bushings, especially if you're simply finding them too loose and grippy.

Summary time:
These trucks are some of the most versatile currently being sold widely. I'll take them downhill, freeriding, and even city cruising and dancing and amazes me is that in all situations it *feels* the best out of all the trucks I own, and with very little adjustment. You're getting the same geometry as their precision counter parts, and they will last you a very long time unless you find a way to ruin your threads. If you've just been buying standard size barrel cast trucks, eg. Paris, Caliber, Bears, etc. would highly recommend spending the extra money, and if you're currently trying out other cast precision geometry trucks, like Arsenal and Rogue, would recommend for someone looking for a more raked and lively setup that can grip sharper corners.

Once again only downside is weight. Of course I prefer having a heavier truck to a bent one.
Good match with Icarus?
Getting into the longer boards recently. Will these be a good match with the Loaded Icarus? Or is this overkill?
Linear
I like all kinds of trucks, each has its merits: Some dive (Paris), some are loose centered but have a turn limit (Randal), but these Ronins are definitely a new feel. The turn is very linear and smooth from center, but they seem like they will never stop turning, this is why you should really get the bushings (board side) recommended for your weight off the Ronin Website, it seems to help with defining a limit. I am 175 and the Fruit punch is too soft which allows wheelbite on most setups, the Ice Tea bushing still has plenty of turn but it seems to prevent that last little bit of movement to keep wheelbite at bay. Roadside you can experiment a bit, with different brands of bushings or just more Ronin bushings (they seem dead in the hands, but run great in practice). I would never just have one kind of trucks, but I definitely think anyone with multiple setups should get at least one set of these, the feel is very nice and quite different.
Excellent but..
these trucks are excellent don't get me wrong the best cast truck. but you should spend the extra 10 bucks to buy a pair of surf rodz. I currently own both and prefer the Surf Rodz. It is all a matter of personal reference. i just say you should spend an extra 10 bucks and buy a pair of Surf Rodz precision trucks.

PEEL. STICK. ART.

This month, all orders over $19.95 get the newest sticker of the month. When robots take over the world, it will surely be more or less like when humans did: Some will be jerks, some will gather all the power, and some will just want to shred. Ted Cocuzza envisions a world where robots still have the freedom to throw a steezy layback grind on a DIY spot when they feel the need.

As always, every order will come with two free classic Daddies stickers at no cost. We know... we're sweet.
