Description

Big and beefy, the Atlas 180mm longboard skateboard truck is here. Despite its bulk, this truck is quite nimble because of its 3 degree raked hanger and its 48 degree baseplate. It also includes a BIG ball pivot for smooth turns and a 8mm axel core is ultralight. An 8 hole baseplate keeps you locked in no matter what drill pattern you got and a tapered kingpin removes unwanted slop. Designed for all around downhill shredding, this truck will fulfill all your speedy needs.

Atlas's Description

Still sporting all the signature Atlas features - a machined ball pivot, tapered kingpin, built-in speed rings - the Atlas Ultralight trucks are the best value on the market at only $49.95. The Ultralight features an 8mm axle through the hanger and eliminates additional aluminum making it 20% lighter than the original Atlas. With a cone bushing board side matched with a cone bushing roadside this truck was created to be perfect for cruising, carving and freeriding.

Atlas trucks are the new standard for reverse kingpin longboard trucks. Our forged A356 aluminum is stronger and more precise than any other truck in the category. Our precision ball pivot, 8mm axle with a machined hanger facing that creates the inner speed ring. The threaded self-cleaning pivot cup offer a ride that is almost indistinguishable from trucks at 5x the price. Innovation at last.

The Atlas Truck Set comes ready to ride with standard 48-degree baseplates, 180mm hangers, and 89a Atlas barrel bushings. Each truck weighs in at 1.1lbs.

Definitely worth the money!

These trucks are extremely well built! They feel incredible on my board, and are extremely easy to get a wonderful-feeling smooth turn with. Even when they're extremely loose, they have just the right amount of tightness already in them so there's no brutal pivot point where it's impossible to balance in the middle. There is always a consistent smooth turn, and you can hold them at any angle with ease. These are the trucks you've been looking for!
