Paris 165mm Matte Black V3 50° Longboard Skateboard Truck
Very pleased to announce the release of the 165mm Paris V3 longboard trucks in your favorite color-way Matte Black.
It's been a long time coming but well worth the wait!
These trucks are stronger, straighter and funner than ever. All new from the ground up to step up the longboard truck game. Paris redesigned their top selling longboard trucks to bring us the new and improved Paris V3! These trucks feature new manufacturing process that allows the use of a true T6 heat-treatment, offering further durability.
The bushings on the Paris V3 trucks have been updated. New and improved 90a bushing formula. The top cone bushing’s new shape offers better performance and rebound, and the baseplates now come equipped with 96a urethane pivot cups.
With all new colors, these trucks look as great as they ride!
As soon as you mount a set of Paris V3s to your board, you can tell these guys went the extra mile to perfect the geometry of their trucks to bring you the most refined longboard truck on the market.
If you're just starting out and aren't exactly sure what baseplate angles will do for you, we suggest that you try out the standard 180mm Paris V3 trucks that come with a 50 degree baseplate.
Paris are beyond excited to introduce the new 165mm cast truck! Sized just right for boards narrower than nine inches, the Paris V3 165mm trucks are exactly what many of us have been waiting for. Not too big, not too small, the narrower hangers offer a bit more grip and control right where you need it without any compromise in strength or performance.
Paris V3 trucks are produced using Paris’ new, proprietary alloy forming process, which utilizes techniques derived from casting, extrusion and forging. This gives the V3 a molecular structure that provides strength far beyond any other cast truck on the market.
The new manufacturing process also allows Paris to use a true T6 heat-treatment, offering further durability.
Paris has redesigned the hanger’s barrel and shoulders adding more material, and reinforced the baseplate with an additional support beam to increase strength and reduce acute stress to the area.
The kingpins have been modified making them tougher and more resilient and the baseplates come equipped with hand-poured, 96a urethane pivot cups, which provide an ultra-smooth turn and return to center.
The Paris V3 is also available in 180mm and 150mm options.
