TRUCK 5

 

The first model was made

1997

After 20+ years of evolution and rider driven innovation, we have engineered the best product on the market. Each generation of trucks comes with improvements on the hangers, baseplates, separate castor assembly. No need to replace the whole truck, change only the castor or the hanger and switch between 5 and 5X quickly.

These trucks are perfect for riders looking to push the limits and test their skills.
