180mm Ronin Raw Cast (New and Old School Pattern) Longboard Skateboard Truck
Finally, the revolutionary Ronin truck is now offered in an affordable Raw Hanger and Raw Base Blate! Note: Ronin base plates are drilled old-school and new-school.
Ronin trucks feature a support rod (queen pin) that assists in holding your axle's pivot point stationary when taking corners on rough pavement. Essentially, you will get a level of control that is unparalleled by any conventional reverse kingpin truck.
Divey when you need it, yet still stable on the straights, these trucks feel more agile than any lower-degree truck we're ever felt! Some people have challenged the idea of freeriding on these trucks, but we can guarantee you that Ronins are up to the task.Unfinished surfaces keep these trucks looking rugged and purely functional. Kill it down the straightaways and jam yourself right into the apex of the corner on a set of these amazing trucks! Seriously, stop reading and grab a set of these bad boys for your downhill setup today!
Ronin Cast Trucks
The same engineering in a more affordable package. Completely interchangeable with their precision counterparts, the geometry is nearly identical, but these feature more rake for a quicker turn while retaining a lower (42.5º) baseplate angle for high-speed stability.
180mm (8mm) axles and 42.5º baseplates, drilled with a 6-hole bolt pattern to fit both old and new school boards.
New 92a "Fruit Punch" bushings complement the trucks perfectly with a great rebound, fluid turn, and functionality at a wide spectrum of weight classes.
Price is for one truck.

How these things are able to turn so much I will never know, they feel very precise and predictable with a nice flow. They can carve and pump, and dive a bit for getting loose, but the real magic is the linear way they turn (much more than other similar trucks). You will need to play around with the bushings to keep them from being too loose, at 180lbs I use the Ice Tea boardside and Fruit Punch roadside. These trucks make other trucks feel a generation behind; I still like and use Randals and Paris, and enjoy them just fine (esp Paris for carving). But, you might find yourself choosing Ronins on future setups once you've tasted your first set, even though they cost twice as much.
