Light AND strong...Carving Perfection

These Kodiaks are quite THE UPGRADE to my prior favorite trucks. In the past I've tried Atlas, Gullwing, Paris, Generic brands, and Bear trucks and I settled on the grizzlys for my first board. I knew I might need stronger trucks down the line(I like to be prepared) and so I got these. They are EXTREMELY tough but designed very well in terms material placement. I expect that these will NEVER fail and standing on them is like the first time you ever skated a nice board; You know, that nieve feeling that better trucks just dont exist, but then you eventually learn that better trucks DO exist, and then you get these, and all over again you just dont think that a better set of trucks could ever be conceived. On these trucks when I lean they lean with me, in unison, then when I want straight, they "snap" right back to straight. I think thats due to the cambered bushing seats. Really when you think of it, its simple kinetic physics. As you lean over an edge more of your weight needs to be held back and thats what the bushing seat provides. Perfectly crafted and honestly, I'd rather have these long lasting trucks than cast trucks that may in the end bend under heavier riders. I still love having Grizzlys(5th gen) on my first board and the Paris v2 werent bad feeling at all when I stood on them in the shop, but when you're ready to future proof your rig and be set for life, get these.

Amazing Trucks!

These trucks are amazing! They are very light and responsive have crazy amounts of lean! I would highly recommend a set of these to anyone looking to increase their freeride/downhill game! My setup: Riot Tall Barrels 90a BS/ 90a with Amish Cupped Washer RS and Riot 92.5a Kodiak Pivot Cups.
