Description

Note: The Ronin Katana is best suited for top-mount Skateboards and not drop-through decks. The hanger width is designed for speed and some cruising. 160mm trucks will create wheelbite issues in a drop-through design. See the Muirskate Longboard Guides for more details on decks shapes.

We are excited to announce the release of the new Ronin Cast Katana longboard skateboard truck. Our customers can now experience the feel of precision in a cast truck. If you did not know, Ronin is a leader in longboard skateboard truck advancements! Before a Ronin Truck reaches you, each new truck design is rigorously tested by top athletes from around the world. If you are new to downhill skateboarding and cannot afford a set of precision downhill trucks, the Ronin Cast Katana could be the solution for you. The Katana is designed after the more expensive precision alternative. The geometry provides a stable lean when cornering. What gets us excited about the Ronin Katana is that we can experience high speeds on our skateboard with increasing stability and control.
