184mm Caliber 2 "Blackout" Downhill Longboard Truck
We recommend the Caliber II "Fifty Cal." and "Forty-Four" Longboard Trucks for top mount longboards. With certain wheel choices, they may cause wheelbite on drop through decks.
The Caliber II Longboard Skateboard Truck is Caliber Truck Co.'s interpretation of what a cast reverse kingpin downhill truck should be. NOW UPDATED the Caliber II' s now have a better bushing seat, increased strength, and are manufactured under tighter tolerances. Same great look and feel, except now even better for all DH/ Freeriding needs.
We've busted huge slides down hills and thrown ourselves off nicely sized launch ramps to make sure these trucks are sturdy, and they do not disappoint. If you're into DH and freeride, the stock bushings on the 44 Cals should be just fine.
If you're the carving and cruising type, check out Caliber's "Fifty Cal" Downhill Longboard Truck. If you're into DH and freeride, grab 2 packs of stiffer double barrel bushings from Venom or Riptide. If you're the carving and cruising type, the stock bushings should be just fine.
CALIBER II Trucks
A precision feel now available in cast
UPDATED INNER / OUTER STEPS ON BUSHING SEAT
- The new Inner-Step provides an increased contact area with the bushing, resulting in dramatically higher rebound and overall responsiveness. The Inner-Step diameter has been adjusted to 25.4mm to eliminate all slop.
- The new Outer-Step is now a perfect circle with a 31.5mm diameter, creating a perfect no-slop-fit with oversized aftermarket bushing combinations.
PIVOT WITH TIGHTER AND UPDATED CHAMFER
- By decreasing our pivot cup seat chamfer, we have increased pivot cup surface area contact with the baseplate. This creates a snugger fit for the pivot pin and prevents side-to-side play as the pivot cup breaks in.
CIRCULAR KINGPIN HOLE WITH UPDATED DIAMETER
- With a diameter of 17.4mm, our kingpin hole has been updated to match the specs of out precision trucks. A circular hole provides a consistent and uniform lean, while also allowing proper clearance to avoid kingpin bit on the hanger.
INCREASED TRUCK STRENGTH
- With a new in-house heat treatment process at our manufacturing facility, we were able to strengthen our trucks by as much as 40%.
PRESSED-IN GRADE 8 HEX HEAD KINGPIN
-We have removed all slop and play by switching to a pressed-in kingpin. This provides maximum control and responsiveness through corners, but can still be hammered out and replaced with different length removable kingpins for extra levels of customization.
- We have reinforced our baseplate by thickening the metal towards the kingpin. This provides increased strength and resistance against high speed impact.
THINNER PAINTS FOR TIGHTENED TOLERANCES
- Powder coats are very thick and can throw off tolerances and effect overall truck performance. We have switched over to a thinner paint system that has virtually no impact on performance.
Favorite longboard trucks - Read my upgrade suggestions!By Robskey on 2019-04-05
I really have become one with these trucks riding downhill, freeride, and ditches with them. I don't really trust anything else for ditches especially since they are so stable and durable. I set mine up with Venom downhill double barrel bushings (83a-88a work for my weight of 190lbs). I'd recommend taking out the stock cone bushing on top and replacing it with a barrel busing and cupped washer like the bottom bushing. Keep the bottom stock barrel bushing as it's perfect with the inset that fits into the hole of the hanger, that gives you a very nice responsive turn and feel. I've had a set of the Caliber I trucks and they still perform great too. And I've rocked a couple different sets of Calilber II trucks now for several years as well. Once a year I will replace the pivot cups with RipTide replacements 90a cups. And of course the Venom bushings and cupped washers too. Just those upgrades once or year or so will keep these things rocking to max performance for many many years maybe forever I don't know aha!
these trucks are very good for freeride and some mellow downhill, i would recommend
Sexy & Smooth!By Josh S. on 2016-12-10 Verified Purchase
Stoked about my new Caliber 2 "Blackout" trucks! The blackout look is just. Plain. Awesome! Very happy with their performance and Caliber makes a smooth riding truck. The 50° trucks are just what I needed and give the most versatility. Two enthusiastic thumbs up here!

Awesome trucks!! Built to last, just upgrade to Barrell bushings for a crisper ride.
never going back.By Jan von Bergen on 2016-06-21 Verified Purchase
For me personally my new favourite freeride/cruiser trucks. Nimble, consistent handle speeds very well. I don't know exactly why but they just feel so freakin amazing. 10/10
I like themBy Austin B. on 2016-06-04
I think they're nice. More nimble than my old trucks, though that might just be because of the bushings. I run them pretty loose and they're fairly stable at speed. Though I still like tightening them a little. I might try new trucks out next, but I still recommend them
