Description

The Paris street truck is designed with hybrid longboard skateboards in mind. These skateboard trucks are ideal for larger double kick skateboards and wheels in the 60-70mm range, depending on the board.

The higher profile means that the ride will be higher, but it is designed this way in order to remove the need for a riser. Like most traditional kingpin skateboard trucks, the Paris street trucks will have a lot of lean. Grab a set of these trucks if you plan on setting up a board with a short wheelbase or if you plan on setting up a board with a kick-tail.

For boards that will be used for street skating or hybrid skating, make sure that the truck width is equal to the width of the board. Unlike downhill skateboards, the wheels should sit under the edge of the board to improve the kick-flip-ability of the board and to give the rider less of a chance of kicking the wheel.

The bushings in this truck do not fit standard reverse kingpin bushings (Venom, Riptide, etc.). Khiro barrel/short cone and barrel/medium cone combinations should work with these trucks.

Paris missed smoothing base plate. it's just an eye sore, will hide with your shock pad. Drop-thru there's no way to hide them.

Feeling them out…

Still feeling them out, but I can say, they are unique in turning and so on. Great for cruising on a double ended long board. You still get a reverse kingpin feel.

Got these for converting my 8.38 park deck into a tech slidey cruiser build. Personally love the height, turn-angle and added wheel clearance you get with these (was able to run 60mm wheels with only a .13" riser. Obviously feels a touch heavier than your typical Indy street truck but that's no issue, they'e solid and all around a great TKP option for cruisers!
great trucks
