Description

If you are looking for exaggerated easy turning and a smooth flow, the Gullwing Sidewinders are definitely the trucks for you. Designed to surf the street, the Gullwing Sidewinders simulate the movements that are common to surfing on an actually wave in the ocean! Surfing the desert is now possible!

The Sidewinders feature a 'double kingpin' setup which allows the truck to lean far more than regular trucks! Tightening the turning radius and also giving back double the response you put in to your carves and pumps was built in the design of the Sidewinder. What this means is you can generate momentum through turning/pumping, and will be able to carve the tightest lines known to any skateboarder.

We suggest pairing Gullwing Sidewinder trucks with the Sector 9 Sidewinder Series or with a smaller single or double kick longboard skateboard for maximum performance.

Gullwing's Description

The patented design of the Gullwing Sidewinder Trucks have been turning heads since they were first introduced. What makes these trucks so special is that they have two pivot points which allows the trucks to turn twice as sharp and fast as a standard truck. This double action pivot allows the rider to generate speed using their own turning momentum. The Gullwing Sidewinder trucks are a sidewalk surfers dream. Ask anyone that has ridden them and the truth will be told.

***Please be aware that hese trucks must be set up on an appropriately shaped deck with proper clearance in order to function properly and avoid wheel bite***

Gullwing sidewinders, are, well... They're sidewinders. Nothing you ride will ever be like them again (maybe original trucks, but I couldnt say). Riding a 36" dropthrough, I was able to carve tighter than a 17" penny board. The trucks are highly configurable, and generally, you're able to find a middle ground. Quick tight turns are quite easy, and you're able to dive into turns. These things are a blast for city, trail, and sidewalk carving around obstacles and pedestrians, you're able to throw lines that you wouldn't of even imagined before. However, these trucks come with a few flaws. They're quite tall and come with so much lean, that they can slide out 'automatically' at higher speeds from a strong carve. Indys on steroids with super twitchy response. Downhill past 20 get uncomfortable, with anything hold straight bombs out of the question due to the tendency to slide out and the need to face your front foot directly forward to keep stability. Wobbles are surprisingly lack on these trucks board due to the nature of the rear truck (double caster), however wobbles produce will very, very quickly and throw you from the board, these generally come from the twitchiness of the front truck. The same principle keeping the back truck straight severely destabilizes the front one. However, the trucks do have their advantages, namely they pump very well, not efficiently, but practically from a standstill with a symmetrical setup. Slides can be thrown, especially with hardwheels, with excessive ease, and in the right circumstances they can totally rip bowls and half pipes. They give long wheelbases tight carving, and are an extraordinary pleasure to ride, however, the cost of bushing for this truck is absurd. the stocking bushings are awful, and a full upgrade can look up to 30$ depending on the bushings. Unless you have a semi-flexy drop-through, these trucks can probably be passed up. They're fun, but thats about it. These trucks wont last you down a hill, the slides are sloppy as heck, and the crazy amount of lean comes with the downside of excessive turning to the point of sliding out. *Bonus points for downhilling on these out of sheer ballsiness.
