** Sold as pair of TWO trucks with different degree baseplates**
43° = business at the back and 50° = party at the front.
A 43° truck can be used as a stable rear truck to create a directional downhill board or a LDP (long distance pump) set up.
For LDP: the lower degree on the rear truck allows a board to be pumped easier, creating drive from the rear. Combined with a turner 50° on the front provides a turnier front to compliment the drive from the rear. One of the features of the new V3 truck is the 43° and the 50° truck are the same height. This allows skaters to pair different degree trucks on the same board. We sell single trucks for skaters to try this type of set up if they already have a set of V3 Paris trucks. Or buy this 50/43 split degree set.
For downhill set ups, create a more stable rear but maintaining a turny front. Good for steezy freeriding or an agile downhill setup.
Paris V3 trucks are produced using the new Paris proprietary alloy forming process, which utilises techniques derived from casting, extrusion and forging. This gives the V3 a molecular structure that provides strength far beyond any other cast truck on the market.
The new manufacturing process also allows a true T6 heat-treatment, offering further durability.
Paris has redesigned the hanger’s barrel and shoulders adding more material, and reinforced the baseplate with an additional support beam to increase strength and reduce acute stress to the area.
The kingpins have been modified making them tougher and more resilient and the baseplates come equipped with hand-poured, 96a urethane pivot cups, which provide an ultra-smooth turn and return to centre.
