180mm Paris V2 50° Raw/Raw Longboard Skateboard Truck
Paris redesigned their top selling longboard trucks to bring us the new and improved Paris V2! These trucks feature a beefier hanger that is less prone to bending from all of the abuse you can dish out.
The Paris V2s still have a very open, unrestrictive bushing seat that works well for those who enjoy a very carvy, surfy feeling setup. Paris also improved the design by throwing in more durable pivot cups and adding a little extra length to the kingpin.
These trucks look as great as they ride! A thick powder coat not only protects the aluminum hangers and baseplates from the elements but also creates a beautiful, glossy finish. No matter what your color preference, Paris has got you covered!
As soon as you mount a set of Paris V2s 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.
The degree trucks should only be used on boards with deep wheelwells or significant cutouts that will prevent the board from getting wheelbite. We recommend mounting them on a smaller-than-usual wheelbase to get the most response out of them.
If you're just starting out and aren't exactly sure what baseplate angles will do for you, we recommend that you try out the standard 180mm Paris V2 trucks that come with a 50 degree baseplate.
The long awaited Paris V2 is here! This is the same beloved Paris design with some new upgrades and improvements! The V2 improvements include. Redesigned, stronger faced hangers. Tougher, longer lasting pivot cups. Improved kingpin clearance for a better carve. Stronger, more durable powder coated finish. Branded grade 8 kingpins
The Paris 180mm is the all-around and perfect any terrain truck. These are able to handle anything and everything you could possibly throw at them. The 180mm hanger is the perfect go-to size for most decks and compliments all riding styles. Like all Paris Trucks, the baseplate angle is 50 degrees, which provides the perfect balance between stability and maneuverability.

Trying not to break themBy Makenzie on 2016-06-08 Verified Purchase
I'm a die hard Paris fan and I really enjoy these trucks on the setup. The only thing is that with the flex of the board, I had to tighten these trucks to high hell so I didn't fall off. It could just be my beginner freestyle, but I get a nice wave-carving feel when the kingpin is so tight, it's nearly fused into the bushing.
