Aera's Description

The Aera RF-1 is a cold forged, machined axle and kingpin, ultra high-end production truck. It comes stocked with Hardcore Bushings, and is sold fully assembled. This truck is stronger than machined or CNC varieties with nearly the same level of precision so there are many advantages. The unique pivot and pivot cup allows the truck to steer deeper while also being more stable. Cold forging is the process of stamping a hardened aluminum material with 30,000lb of pressure - this nets a very precise part, and also one that is stronger since the material flows into its final shape.

There are three models, in two colors, and trucks are sold individually so riders can mix and match:

DH (Downhill) - 46˚ bases - 176mm width - 93a Bushings: This set-up is ready to go for riding downhill at high speeds. It is sold with our hardest Hardcore bushings, and is ready to go 60mph+ or freeride the streets for heavier riders.

FR (Freeride) - 46˚ bases - 180mm width - 90a Bushings: This is the all-arounder in the lineup, and can be used for intermediate downhill, and high level freeride. It’s perfect for the majority of riders.

Carve (Dance or Commute) - 50˚ bases - 180mm width - 88a Bushings: This is the truck that most riders should start with, and it can be used for ALL varieties of longboards. It is especially set-up to be easy to carve, steer around town and over city obstacles, or do some lightweight freeride or downhill. The higher angle 50˚ baseplate is very versatile.

Magical trucks
on 2019-08-16
I have savants, ronins and Randal r3s on various boards. I was riding my ronins for downhill / fast freeride. I almost bought some k5s, but held out for these trucks to release. So glad i did! These trucks are SUPER forgiving. They have been an absolute pleasure to ride, and they're very versatile. Now i want them in all my boards, and now that they have 150mm and offer base plates and hangars separately i can mix and match. Oh, forgot to mention they are also the lightest of all my trucks, by far. The only mod i made was to add a rubber washer over the rear pivot cup; these cups are very open and the rear collects a ton of dirt inside (at least if you ride dirty roads, like i do). Also, these trucks made me fall in love with hardcore bushings. I don't know why I was reluctant to try bones bushings for so long; I've traditionally ridden venom. Now i find myself putting hardcore bushings in all my setups for a sweet, surfy-but-controlled ride.
