On our skate website you’ll find the best top-quality affordable skate trucks to help you make your turns when you’re on your skateboard and improve your favourite tricks.
Skate truck size
The size of the trucks is a key factor for your skateboard to run properly. You should know that not all manufacturers use the same measurements for the trucks, but rather, that they vary.
One tip that we can give you is that the end width of the trucks should match that of the board to ensure greater stability and enable you to pull off turns, flips and other types of stunts.
When we talk about the height of the skate truck, we are referring to the distance between the skate wheels and your board. There are different models depending on the height of the skateboard truck:
- high, work really well with larger wheels and you’ll avoid that dreaded wheel bite. Having said that, at high speeds it loses stability but you can also make much tighter turns.
- medium, for wheel measurements ranging from 53 to 56 millimetres, the most versatile of all.
- low, for wheel diameters of 50-53 mm. With this type of truck you achieve greater stability, so it’s perfect for younger skaters or people with short legs.
Skate truck parts
Basically, a skateboard truck is made up of 4 parts:
It’s important that the trucks be properly adjusted for a number of reasons. For instance, if they’re not properly adjusted, this will have a direct impact on your flips. What’s more, if your skateboard is narrower than usual, it will affect its actual stability and also when you make the turns.
