We will have the new K5 Aera's soon.
**Sign up for email notification if you are seriously interested.
This truck is built for speed and freeriding. Design by Kevin Reimer (two time World Champion). The K5 has a larger and longer pivot ball and cup to the previous K4. This has improved stability and accuracy. The hanger and baseplate are stiffer, which has strengthened the truck.
The prove of this truck is their team. How can you argue with Patrick Switzer and Carlos Paixão both double World Champions, and both use this truck to dominate racing.
Is it the best longboard trucks ever made? Maybe, Ronin might have a claim to that title, but it is certain one of the best money can buy!
The K5 has a narrower hanger which means widths range from 164mm up to 184mm. Narrower truck are more agile, and gripper. They also suit smaller decks. Both the hanger and the baseplate have been optimized through load, material, and CAD testing to be stiffer, and more durable, and allow for more grip on the track.
They are limited, so get ready when they are available, they don't last long.
**There will be upgraded options for better hardware, like titanium axles**
