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.
