Description

Seismic's new 180mm Aeon Hollow Axle Trucks are a game changer for sure! With the Hollow Axle option, you get the same amazing Aeon truck that's even lighter! This is great for doing all those crazy 360° standup slides and backflips you crazy kids are doing these days.

At first glance you'll notice a new bushing shape we haven't seen before. Aeon bushings are hexagonal with tapering sides for smoother resistance and a larger steering range. Beneath these bushings are a cylinder inside the bushing seat. This gives the bushings a guide to follow, preventing them from popping out of its seat and giving you more stability and response.

The 45° plate will give you a perfect balance between turn and lean. This makes it a perfect option for any type of riding. With enough response to pump around the boardwalk, and enough stability to tackle the hills, this is one of the most versatile trucks on the market!

Available in both 45° and 30° so you can choose a setup that fits your style of riding.

We recommend running 45°/45° for freeriding and 45°/30° for downhill.

If you want high performance longboard skateboard trucks, without breaking the bank, check out Seismic's 180mm Aeon Trucks.

A REVOLUTION IN RKP TRUCK TECH

Stabilized Geometry with no Added Parts
Aeon bushings pair to form a cylindrical hollow that locks around barrel-shaped hanger elements – a true bearing with no added parts. This patented design forces the hanger to rotate inside the tubular channel in perfect alignment with the pivot axis. Eliminates slop, aligns and stabilizes geometry without the downsides of support pins, spherical bearing inserts, or hanger plugs. Quick response from center and noticeably smoother, cleaner turns - even at deep lean angles that destabilize the steering of ordinary RKP trucks.

Advanced Control
Beyond barrel vs. cone: Aeon bushings have a wide hexagonal shape and tapering sides, for a smooth, intuitive resistance profile through a larger steering range. Tall but not too tall, for deep turns with no dive. Self-lubricating formula to prevent squeaking.

Lightweight & Affordable
Optional hollow axles, elegant body sculpting, and the first-ever hollow pivot channel (extending into bearing section). Precision engineering is what counts, and the Aeon packs it in a moderately-priced cast design. (CNC body parts add high cost with no guarantee of high performance.)

Precision Fit
Custom contouring creates mechanical lock between boardside bushing and baseplate - no washer needed. Faced hangers. Top of baseplate sloped for flush contact with deck concave when dropthrough-mounted. (Nut seats kept flat.)

good for cruising

These trucks are great for cruising with quick response and zero speed wobble. The reason I'm rating these two stars is cups they suck for sliding

Best When Fresh

These trucks feel amazing for free riding and downhill. Almost easily the best trucks out of the box that you can buy for anything like this price. They look amazing as well. Warning, be sure to baby these lil Aeons... Be weary of bending or snapping these light weight engineered beauties.
They were good....but

After riding these all season I have determined.... for the money these truck are worth buying if you want to get a relatively in expensive racing truck. They have a nice deep lean on turns but can get a little squirrely at times due to design of the bushing to slightly rock before initiating compression on, what I will call, the bushing "wings". While riding the aeons I did find myself cranking them down farely often because the "wings" started dying down/compressing a bit from hard leans and drifts. The axels precision fit the bearings giving a little support in reducing slop and giving some support with radial axial tortion, its an all ball roll on these trucks. Took them at 50 when they were fairly new and they held rather nicely around a left sweeper. Which brings me to on final thing, these trucks are light weight and manuverable, but dont big air, grind or crash with them, they will bend, wear, and snap. Crashed at major stokem 7 and the hanger snapped across the bushing seat.

Skeptical at First

I was a little bit skeptical at first because of the different bushing type and I'm glad I took the risk. These trucks turn when you want them to, but also remain very steady at speed. I mainly freeride with these trucks and I'm very happy with their performance. The only downfall to these trucks, for me, is that I had to tighten them down at least 3 and a half rotations to prevent wheel bite. This is an problem that can easily be solved. Don't be intimidated by the new design and go for it! You won't regret.
