Description

The Polar Bear trucks are legit when it comes to a shreddable standard kingpin truck! We love to set up Polar Bears on Earthwing skateboards, Gravity skateboards, Sector 9 Skateboards, and any other boards.

These trucks have a 8 hole base plate, so you're able to mount your truck right where you want it when riding a board with old school or new school hole pattern. The stock bushings are a little soft, so you may wish to upgrade them to get the most out of your new favorite trucks.

Bear's Description

Bear has been working with team riders designing and engineering this regular geometry truck for two and a half years. We've been through 34 revisions along with 5 sets of moulds and prototypes. No part of the truck was overlooked.

The Baseplate:
- Featuring 8 holes, so you're able to mount your truck right where you want it when riding a board with old school or new school hole pattern.
- All mounting holes are accessible with a skate tool
- Low Profile, only 2" from the surface to the center of the axle. Grizzlies are 2.6"
- Added material to impact areas where more meat is needed, in front of the pivot cup and behind the bushing seat.
- Removed material from the bottom of the base plate to reduce weight

The hanger:
- Extensive computer modeling and physical tests were done to engineer the strongest hanger on the market.
- Gussets were added on the underside of the hanger to ensure strength in all directions
- Material removed from the front of the hanger to reduce weight
- Shaped around the top bushing so that the washer doesn't hit the hanger and ensures tools are easy to use.
- Hangers are faced so bearings run clean and square
- Heat treatments provide a very strong finish, this means the hanger doesn't wear down quickly when grinding.
- The Axle lengths are precise, designed not to stick out of your nuts, and preventing ground axles.

The Bushings:
- Many bushing combos were tested, the stock bushings are an ideal middle ground. Great for carving and tight turning as well as stable for faster riding.
- The bottom bushing is a standard 90a barrel 15mm tall.
- The top bushing is a small cone, also 90a, 10.5mm tall.

Replace the bushings

Indestructible little shredders. Put a pair on my dinghy and replaced the bushings with some 90a creatures . The original bushings blew out first day of slashing the boardwalk. But great trucks no doubt .
