'180mm Atlas green Longboard Skateboard Truck '
Posted on 2017-03-18
just to start off i purchased the green atlas trucks, but i could not find them on here so i am reviewing the purple ones. as for the review, these truck are superb for downhill. they have a very nice precision feel for a very affordable price. the hangers have a 3 degree rake so you can run them at 51 degree for free ride, or 45 degree for downhill. i personally run a 51 in front for better turning and 45 in back when down hilling for stability. the king pin is taperd so there is zero king pin slop, and the axel is 10mm through the hanger for a stronger and unbendable hanger itself then is milled down to 8mm to fit all standard bearing size. the pivot cup from what i am told is made of delrin plastic but i recommend replacing it with a set of atlas brand urethane pivot cups. the pivot cups also have a threding inside them for easy removal with the axel. all and all, i love these trucks there are a little on the heavy side but thats really the only grip i have with these trucks. if your considering geting a pair of these truck go do it you wont regret it.
