Paris Truck Company V3 180mm/50° Matte Black Reverser Kingpin longboard truck
Sold in pairs. One qty. is 2 trucks.
The Paris Truck Co.'s V3 RKP (reverse kingpin) trucks unlock your potential and harness your capabilities. Their progress in manufacturing and design give you a truck that not only feels lively and smooth, but will also hold up to whatever you throw at it.
Paris took what they learned from the V1, V2, and Savants and set about to make them even better, beefing up the construction, and fine tuning the soft components to a point of excellence.
The new, propietary alloy forming process was developed from the previous versions casting, extrusion, and forging. This new process imbues the V3 with extra strength all the way down to the molecular level. This opened up the ability to use a true T6 heat-treatment taking the already top end strength, and giving the industry a new level to achieve. Along with better and stronger raw materials and construction Paris thickened the hangers barrels and shoulders, then threw a support beam across the baseplate. As the wizards at Paris excised the weakness away, they decided that a tougher SCM435 kingpin was in order. All of this is a really long way of saying that you are going to have to work a lot harder to break and bend these trucks than previous versions.
All of these improvements to the metal components wouldn't matter as much if Paris also didn't improve the soft workings of the truck. First on the list to improve your groove was the road side conical. They took the standard cone and gave it some more meat. This newer gumdrop shape offers improved support and rebound. Basically making it harder to accidentally turn, and gives the rider better support when you are in your carves. Chasing the weakness down to it's very last point of resistance the baseplates now come with a hand-poured 96a urethane pivot cups.
The 50° baseplate and the 43° baseplate now have matched ride height.
These trucks are great for 9"-10" decks, and are a great all around truck.
